Cozy house with convient location to beaches and stores

  • 4 of 5

We had great time in Holiday Palms, which is located in a peaceful area and equipped what we need. The space is sufficient for the family like us (2 adults and 1 kid). The flat is close to the most beautiful beaches in the east coast and also close to stores and restaurants.

Gail is very kind to prepare "welcome gifts" for us and provide all stuffs for beach. We did enjoy our time in Kailua beach and the local foods. We definitely will consider Holiday Palms when we visit Hawaii again.

Extraordinary Stay!

Wonderful stay, unbeatable location! We thoroughly enjoyed the restaurants and shops in Kailua Town as well as Kailua Beach Park and Lanikai Beach. Very much appreciated the beach chairs, towels, and umbrella Gail provided. Unit was clean and cozy, perfect for needs while on Oahu.

Good Location and Easy Walk to Beach!

  • 5 of 5

Very easy, nice walk through quiet neighborhood to beautiful Kailua Beach. Property was clean and shower provided plenty of hot water...which was great! Also, very close walking distance to the Kalapawai Market and Island Snow (shaved ice). Really appreciated the map on the fridge which indicated where Kailua Beach was located. Gail was very accommodating (late check-in) and followed up via e-mail. Thank you, Gail. We really enjoyed our two night stay. :)

Great owners and great location!

  • 5 of 5

My family had a great stay at Holiday Palms. The owner was super friendly and easy going. This property offers tons of privacy. The home is also located just a few minutes away from my favorite beach! It's close to some nice restaurants and shops. We would definitely stay here again!

Beautiful week at Holiday Palms

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at The Holiday Palms.

Gail and her family were so friendly and accommodating. We had the perfect amount of privacy and were welcomed with a local pineapple, Hawaiian baked blueberry loaf and sweet Hawaiian Guava juice. Such a wonderful location, so close to the beach and local markets. The beds were comfortable, the kitchen was supplied with everything we needed and the bathroom and shower were clean and supplied with towels and extra toiletries. Our son loved swimming in the pool and we appreciated the use of laundry facilities.

We had such a wonderful week and Holiday Palms was a huge part of it.

There's a sign in Holiday Palms that's reads ~*Live Aloha*~ and we definitely felt this here. ;)

Great location and clean house!

  • 4 of 5

The four of us enjoyed our stay and although we never met Gail, she was available le to answer questions through text. Check in was a breeze and Gail was very accommodating if we needed an early or late check out time. We didn't use the pool but took full advantage of the patio.

The space was a good siZe for four guest, and although it says it accommodates 5, i think it would be a pretty tight squeeze. The bathroom was spacious, shower pressure was perfect, and the kitchen and bathroom was stocked with extra items like aloe Vera, juice, coffee, spices, fruit, etc.

The pictures shown represented exactly what we saw when we first walked in. Beds were comfy, however, pillows were pretty flat so if you're ones that like firm and hard pillows, maybe just use two. AC worked well, and although loud at night, it didn't bother us since most acs are like that. Location was perfect as it was a 5 minute drive to the shops and restaurants in Kailua. Parking in front of the house was awesome. Gail was also very kind to give us instructions to use laundry but it turned out we didn't need them but it was greatly appreciated.

Lastly, I only wished that there was some sort of living room or sitting room to sit and chat, but the patio made up for that. It's just at night, if you're prone to mosquitos, you could get bitten like my friends did. It would have been nice to go back inside to a couch or hang out area.

Anyways, I definitely recommend this place if you're staying in Kailua!
