About Judy Boyd

We are an active family that enjoys the outdoors. Boating, golfing, kiteboarding and stand up paddle boarding are some of the things we do around Kailua. We also enjoy traveling but get homesick if gone from the islands too long.

Disclosure: owner is related to real estate agent who holds a real estate license in the State of Hawaii.

Judy Boyd purchased this house in 1991

Why Judy Boyd chose Kailua

This property fits our island lifestyle. A place where you can remove your slippers (flip flops), BBQ and hang loose.

What makes this house unique

Pool is a great addition to this home, its a great way to enjoy the sun when not at the beach. Location of this home is a bonus where you can walk to Kailua town to shop, eat and explore Kailua town. Also, a 10min walk to Kailua beach, one of the most beautiful beach in the world.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Judy's home in Kailua was perfect for our family of 6 (4 adults and 2 children). The photos accurately depicted the space, which was comfortable, clean, and just enough room for all of us. Judy went out of her way to call me after we'd arrived to make sure everything was working properly (it was!), which was such a kind gesture. We'd absolutely recommend renting this house to anyone wanting a low-key Hawaiian vacation--Kailua and nearby Lanikai have some of the most incredible beaches I've seen anywhere. Plus the house is only 20 minutes or so away from Honolulu and Waikiki, if you're into the hustle and bustle. Mahalo again, Judy! And thank you for your lovely home! Best, Ashley

Aloha Kailua, we love you....

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the Coconut Grove. The weather complied during our stay, with calm winds and just misting of rain during most nights.

The house is well described on VRBO, and must say it is a very nice home. Kailua, is by far the best part of the island to stay. Quiet, but still has many things to offer.

The only drawback we found during our stay was the washer / dryer is shared ;and there was someone there everyday during our stay. We did not see that in the description of the home. There also seemed to be an issue with trash. I put the trash out, but someone keep bringing it back in. The schedule must have changed or there was some local holiday. The recycle bin was full as it is shared with others.

I must say, non of this even bothered us during our stay in this beautiful home.

The perfect place to stay in Kailua!

  • 5 of 5

The property was clean, comfortable, and contained everything we needed. We had a group of 7 and we were very comfortable. Our kids (age 8 and 6) swam in the pool every day. The adults enjoyed the large lanai. The beach was a short walk as well as town. We had rented a car but ended up walking most of the time because we enjoyed it so much. We would recommend this place to anyone wanting to experience the quiet, peaceful side of Oahu without the tourist traps.

Owner has issues.

  • 3 of 5


We are older adults that stayed at Judy's from March 9-16. Upon arrival it took us over an hour to get into the property because the lock box was broken. We called Judy for over an hour with no answer and finally managed to get it. The initial reponse to the property was that it needed work. The coffee maker lid was broken, carpet was stained, dishwasher was dirty. The out door area around the pool was a nice addition to the property and we enjoyed the pool. A few nights into our stay, a few of our friends observed what appeared to be large cock roaches in the pool are and inside the house. With that said, we have a practical jokester in our party who without our knowledge placed numerous rubber cockroaches( WHICH LOOKED VERY REAL) on the kitchen counters while we all slept. In the AM at approximately 5:15 to 5:30 I heard a friend screaming in the kitchen. I ran to see what was happening and she pointed to the counters in the kitchen( which was pretty dark at the time). I observed what appeared to be large cockroaches. I then took pictures and sent them to Judy and asked her if they were roaches. We then took wads of paper towel and wiped the roaches into the garbage. Judy called me approximately 1/2 later and stated that she had never seen anything like it. She stated that she would reimburse me for the food that we threw away but, I stated that I just wanted to give her a heads up. She asked where the bugs were and I told her that they were in the garbage and she stated that she was going to have her husband get them and have them tested. Fast forward to approximately 9:00pm Our good friend turns to us and states, "You guys didn't really think those roaches were real did you?" Well, I can tell you that we all almost fell out of chairs. Our friend stated that because we had seen roaches in the house, in the pool and on the patio he felt that it would be a good time to play the joke:( Nott cool. I called Judy and left a message about what we had learned,. The next morning I received a phone call from Judy and I apologized for the prank that our friend had pulled and also put him on speaker phone with her and her husband. Our friend explained that he pulled the prank after he had seen roaches in the house and she told him that we had 45 minutes to get out of her house or she would have us removed. I called Kailua PD and confirmed that we did not have to leave. Judy sent nasty texts to my phone. Please be careful with this women.

Owner's Response: I'm not surprised. I knew that we would get this type of review from these guests. I caught you! You are dishonest! These guests sent pictures of roaches. Our rental is treated quarterly and when the pest company came to check they found no trace of infestation. My guess is that these guests target homeowners that are off island & send pictures of roaches so that they would get reimbursed for their stay & write horrible reviews in exchange for compensation. Well, they got caught red handed & so they made up stories that their friends played practical joke on them. When my husband went through the trash & found that they were rubber roaches I was outraged & ask these guests to leave and would even reimburse them for their last night. We do not need dishonest con artists staying with us. We are long time residents in Kailua that provides a clean, safe & fun place for our guests. I ALWAYS practice Aloha. But once you try to con us, then be very careful I have ZERO tolerance.

Nice clean home, well equipped

  • 5 of 5

Judy's home was very nice and fit our family of 5 comfortably. The kids enjoyed the pool every day and there were swim vests and toys for them to use as well.

The location of the house is convenient. Overall, it's quiet and a close drive to the beach and stores (target, whole foods, local shops).

There's no A/C in the main house or the smallest bedroom but we found it to be cool regardless. The A/C in the larger bedrooms worked well.

The house was well stocked with towels and sheets. The washer / dryer was very convenient and had detergent and dryer sheets for our use.

The only critique would be the lack of clothes storage in some of the bedrooms. There was one full dresser in a bedroom but other rooms didn't have as much storage space (think 1- three drawer night stand). But we made it work and it was admittedly a minor annoyance.

Mahalo to Judy for her hospitality and sharing her home. Our family had a wonderful vacation and we are looking forward to a return trip :)
