About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Sunroom, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Aloha and welcome to your beach house. This charming home has everything you need for your dream vacation. Bring your family and friends to unwind Island-style. Come on in and make yourself comfortable. As soon as you walk through the door the stress of everyday life will melt away.

Most of the time our Island tradewinds and ceiling fans will keep you cool. When needed, there is air-conditioning for your added comfort. Each bedroom has a tropical theme all its own. The living room even has a fireplace if you feel so inclined. The large sun room opens on to the pool area providing a perfect setting for entertaining and intimate gatherings.

Enjoy swimming in the custom-tiled pool or relax poolside. Shower off in the outdoor tropical bathroom. The private, peaceful garden setting will make the rest of the world disappear.

A six-foot fence wraps around the spacious front yard – ideal for playing volleyball, lawn darts, or just kicking back. Kalama Beach House is a non-smoking house, although smoking is permitted outside. It is ideally situated just across the street from one of the top-rated beaches in the world, Kailua Beach – a short walk and your toes will be digging into the white sand that stretches for miles. Stroll along the shore or take advantage of one of the many ocean activities available.

The warm turquoise-blue water awaits you! Imagine taking your cup of Kona coffee with you in the early morning to stroll the clean, quiet beach as the absolutely magnificent Hawaiian sun rises! At night, when it’s full-moon time, an experience you won’t forget is when a gigantic full moon appears to rise right up from the horizon. Only a 25-minute drive through the majestic Ko'olau Mountains to the airport, downtown Honolulu and Waikiki. Per Honolulu city and county this property is available for monthly rentals.

Nearby attractions include Kualoa Ranch, Botanical Gardens, Sea Life Park, The Blow Hole, Hanauma Bay & the North Shore. Kailua Town has plenty of shopping from big-name stores to trendy boutiques, antique stores and Island-inspired gift shops that make it easy to find that special something to take home with you. A wide range of restaurants are also just minutes away offering something for everyone including the health-conscious and vegetarian appetites. Several supermarkets and the best health-food store on the Island are close by.

We had a wonderful time. This house is perfect and in a great location. Madeline and Joe were great hosts who have thought of everything, they even found a sewing box for my mother. We hope to be back soon.

Hawaiian Christmas Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This was the PERFECT place for a family Christmas in Hawaii! Joe went above and beyond to make it truly special. We had a full house with adults and two young (4 and 5 ) boys. When we arrived, the house was decorated for the holidays with a Christmas tree and all. It made it feel so festive and the boys were delighted. Beyond the holiday cheer - the location was amazing - a super short walk to a non-crowded and beautiful beach. There were toys, chairs and everything you needed at the house for a relaxing day on the beach and a gorgeous pool and backyard space for hanging out in when we were at the house. The house had everything we needed to just relax, hang out, cook good food, and enjoy family. We will definitely be coming back!

I can't say enough about how comfortable my wife and I were as soon as we arrived. The close proximity to the beach as well as shopping made us feel like locals. The owners are next door to take care of anything that we needed. Having all the toys and knowing where to go and what to do made our vacation memorable. Having a beautiful swimming pool outside our back door was wonderful. We will go again.

Oasis on a busy populated island

  • 5 of 5

We go to Oahu often to visit my husband's family that live there. This is the first time we rented a house in Kailua. Just a few minutes walk to the beach, near restaurants and shopping. A hop, skip and a jump from the freeways to go to the other side of the island, so very convenient. The house itself has a lot of charm. We enjoyed the pool and outdoor bathroom. We also did a lot of cooking in the well-stocked kitchen. The owners are very nice and hospitable. We enjoyed our week there very much!

Adventure i Paradise

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time in your house. It looked just like the picture on the web site. The pool was wonderful and the short walk to the beach was perfect! Thank you for the use of the beach and pool toys. That was very convenient and the beach was like having our own private oasis. It was nice also to be away from the hustle and bustle of Honolulu, but yet close enough to be able to enjoy the sites there. The outdoor bathroom was a fun experience, too. Thank you for the use of your home. We hope to return one day.

This house was exactly as pictured! Location was perfect. Just a walk across the street to beautiful Kalama Beach. We traveled with 3 children ages 4,6 & 8 so being just a short distance to the beach was a must. There was a wagon full of beach chairs, toys, and boogie boards that was in great shape and made it easy to haul stuff to the beach. The pool was was very clean and perfect for the kiddos to practice their snorkeling. Joe, the owner, from the minute we walked in was very hospitable. If we needed anything at all he was quick to respond. The house itself was one of the cleanest we have ever rented and was stocked with all the essential cooking supplies and seasonings! We would definitely stay here again!

The Kailua Experience One would be hard pressed to come up with just one word to describe the essence of Kailua. After all, how could a single word encompass all the pleasures found in this lovely little beach-side town? The least we could do was three. Lush. Let’s start with the obvious, where Oahu’s windward climes conspire to create lush leafy avenues bathed in warm sunlight. This is why to this day, Kailua is often referred to as “Kailua Town”. Languid. Kailua is an unhurried place, soft & gentle to the core, where unassuming shops and eclectic cafes beckon the passerby with a delightful array of foods, gifts, treats, and the island’s best antique stores. It is a town of many tastes, & meant to be approached in a like manner: in small leisurely bites. Light. There’s a playfulness that prevails in almost everything that is Kailua, whether discovering one of more than 75 special shops and charming restaurants that are tucked about the town, or grabbing the last bit of provisions.
