What makes this house unique

Kailua Beach Park is the best beach on the island! Perfect for sunning & relaxing, windsurfing, swimming or walking the beautiful 3 miles stretch of sandy beach.

Lanikai Beach is just 2 minutes away, around the bend, and is perfect for young children as there is very little wave action.

We love Kailua town, with it's many unique shops & boutiques, and an array of restaurants to suit every budget & taste.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Best Hawaii vacation ever! Beautiful, relaxing, spacious and comfortable home. Loved the fenced in back yard for our little ones, while my husband and I relaxed under the beautiful Mango trees.

Centrally located with in very close proximity to Kailua and Lanikai beaches, and Kailua town with its charming restaurants and shops.

We would definitely stay there again, and would highly recommend this home to our friends and family.

The house was exactly what we hoped it would be!

  • 5 of 5

After a long day of traveling we arrived at the property to find a nice, spacious home ready to provide us a much needed good night sleep. The beds were super comfortable and there was plenty of extra blankets and pillows had we needed them. The house is close to shopping, great places to eat and one of the most beautiful beaches in the country! We stayed here for almost 2 weeks and although we did dine out often the home is certainly easy to cook or grill at. The home has a washer and dryer which was a life saver, as we were ale to keep up with clean towels and clothing. I had communicated with the homeowner several times prior to our trip and a few times during our trip and she could not have been more pleasant! I had a few questions and she was always available and willing to chat with me. This communication was important to me, as my family was traveling from Boston and Australia and I needed to know that once we arrived we would have no issues. I would suggest this home to any family looking for a clean, spacious and comfortable home close to everything you could possible need. Although shops and beach are close we suggest renting a car. Thank you to Paulette, our hostess for offering us a wonderful home to enjoy a wonderful family vacation.....we would rent this home again without a doubt should we make another trip to Hawaii!

Perfect for a family

  • 5 of 5

As soon as we arrived to this beautiful house our kids ran right to the back yard and played on the gorgeous mango trees. We were able to unpack while they let out energy in a beautiful tropical backyard. We were thankful for a kitchen that was stocked with pans so we could make delicious home cooked meals. The space in the living areas were perfect for our family. We had plenty of room to play games and relax. We felt right at home. Can't wait to stay at this beautiful hale again!

Great location and lots of space

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our time here. We stayed for two months once we arrived in Hawaii prior to moving into our forever home. The house had everything we needed and the location was so convenient to the beach and shopping and dining.

We had a great time! It was so nice after a long day of exploring to just be able to kick back and relax. The owner was awesome to work with, house was really nice, close to all kinds of stores. It is located in a great area half way between pretty much any location you wanted to go see. Very short drive to a very preyy beach.

We will be back!!

Excellent service and very cozy home!

  • 5 of 5

From the start we were treated so well! When we left, we forgot my 3 year old's teddy bear, and they mailed it to us free of charge! You really feel like family here, while they maintained a welcoming professional relationship. Such a comfortable house! And so close to everything!

Great vacation rental in Kailua!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I love this home. We visit Hawaii every couple years and we always rent a home from these owners. The owners are very friendly and helpful. The house is clean and well maintained and has a nice island feel to it. I like to be immersed in the culture when I visit Hawaii and not be in the touristy areas. This home is away from all the hotels and in a friendly neighborhood. The backyard is fenced in and has mango trees and lawn chairs and is a great place for our kids to run around while we relax and enjoy a drink. `

I personally like the workout room and our family has found the accommodations to be very comfortable. If you want a clean comfortable place with an island feel then give this place a try.

I'm looking forward to our next stay here.

Kailua Beach Park
Car: recommended

Kailua Beach - 20-30 minute walk (5-6 blocks) with 3 miles of white sandy beach for strolling or jogging. Best windsurfing beach on the islands; calm waters for swimming. Lanikai Beach is also just around the corner, which is a perfect beach for young children, as there is very little wave action.

Kalapawai Market is our favorite stop on the way to the beach to pick up a delicious coffee, scones or muffins, and watch the sunrise. Or, if youre not an early riser, pick up a to go deli lunch made fresh and to order.

Hike to the pillbox at the top of Lanikai for a great hike and a breathtaking view.

Kailua Town is just a 10 minute walk (3 blocks) with access to a variety of shops and restaurants.

Kyaks, surfboards, windsurfing equipment, bikes, and anything you may need to make you vacation even more fun is available to rent at a variety of places right in Kailua. You will love Kailua!
