My son and I stayed nearly a week at this great rental in Kailua. The pros and cons...
What we liked: Location, location, location! Across the street from Kailua Beach Park, 50 yards from the beach. Having laundry on-site was a huge plus, and having beach gear (boogie boards, etc.) to use was a nice touch. Oh, and off-street parking and AC for the muggy nights.
What could be better: Not much. No dishwasher, so expect to do dirties by hand. There was a little road noise due to the great location but not enough to detract from the experience.
Overall, great spot! Close to the beach, and you can walk it from the rental (no need to fight for parking). Close to Kailua town but not in the middle of town. Blocks from Lanikai, which is a fantastic beach. In short, great rental. Go!
We had a fabulous time at Dave's place in Kailua. It really is steps from the beach, and has everything you could possibly want for a day at the ocean (towels, beach chairs, boogie boards, an outdoor shower for rinsing off, etc.) as well as all at-home amenities. The laundry room was a major plus for us as well. We didn't end up using the kitchen for more than snacks, but it looked very well stocked if you wanted to make a meal and eat in. The bed was very comfortable as well. Very rarely did we hear very light footsteps above us, but it still felt completely private and wasn't a bother at all. Dave was also very responsive and accommodating over email, and we met briefly in person and he was very kind (my husband had a bout of food poisoning and Dave asked after him and sent his well wishes). I highly recommend this place and the next time we return to Kailua will hope that Dave's place is free!
Our original rental through another site fell through, and we are glad it did! We were lucky to find this place with only a couple months notice, and it is WAY better than where we planned to stay originally, and still at a fair price for what you get. We have stayed in Waikiki on three previous visits and would stay in Kailua (especially in this particular unit) over and over again before staying in a Waikiki hotel again! It's nice to have Waikiki only a half-hour or so away, but not having to take elevators and deal with traffic and parking on a twice-daily basis was a dream!
First off, location ... you can see Kailua Beach from the front windows, and we enjoyed walking (2 minutes) across the street in the morning to visit the beach before taking off for the day's adventures. The proximity to town was also great -- a 5-10 minute drive up the hill to the heart of Kailua town, and though we never visited them, Buzz's steakhouse and the beach market were within easy walking distance. We also walked down the road in the other direction (10-15 minutes) to the beautiful Lanikai Beach to watch the sunrise on our last day. Amazing to be this close to one of the most beautiful beaches in the world!
The apartment itself was incredibly clean and spacious. It is essentially the first floor of a house (like a walk-out basement, but with windows on three sides so plenty of natural light) and the owners live upstairs. We couldn't hear a peep from above, so it felt very private and comfortable. We had our own parking spot under the car port - very valuable in Kailua. The A/C units in the bedroom and living room were helpful for sleeping on the warmer nights. The kitchen and bathroom (and shower) were very large, and fairly new-feeling. We didn't need to use it, but there was a very nice laundry room accessible off the patio outside - not a cobweb-filled outdoor closet like you see in some rentals, but an actual room with nice facilities dedicated to the renters. The only recommendation for improvement would be the decor - it felt a bit bare, like a bachelor pad, and the artwork/paint colors/linens didn't feel very Hawaii - but this is a minor detail and certainly not a deal-breaker!
We loved staying here and will again if we return to Oahu in the future!
The wife and I enjoyed the nice accommodations with a great bed, A/C system and beautiful room settings. The beach was only one block away and very convenient for daily walks and swimming. We loved the place and would book again if we are in Oahu.
We were very happy with the accommodations at the Kailua Beach apartment. It was spacious, had a full kitchen minus an oven, comfortable bed in a separate bedroom, plenty of cupboard space to hang our clothes with hangers provided. We also appreciated having use of a washer and drier with the detergents supplied as well as some beach chairs and beach toys. The apartment was literally a few steps away from the beach which was so nice. We had a great time!
Enjoyed the stay with a quick walk across the street to the beach. Quiet, comfortable, and convenient. Everything was as pictured. We had no problems! Looking forward to our next visit.
