This place was a super find! It was perfect for our "home base" on the east side and was seriously just across the street from Kailua Beach. It was uber clean, very well appointed, and the most comfortable bed we had all vacation! And the AC was *perfect*! The photos do not do it justice. Our family of 3 stayed here for 3 nights, and with the gated driveway and private parking spot in a sea of desperate parking space seekers, we felt like "the Privileged" in Kailua. ;) The pull-out sofa made a comfortable bed for our teenaged son, yet the place was roomy enough to have space to stretch out in the rest of the common areas. The homeowners were very helpful and very communicative, without being intrusive in any way. I wish I could move in!
We stayed at this property for a week in June. It was our first vacation rental experience, but we felt confident in the many positive reviews from this property - and we were not disappointed! It literally was only 'steps to the beach' and right across the street from Kailua Beach Park. Even though it was located on a more main road, we never really noticed any noise inside. The property was spacious and as-described, although I don't think the photos do it justice!! It was great! The owner was very nice and was able to help and answer any questions we had. While this property is the lower level of the owner's house, we really did feel like we had the place to ourselves. The bed was comfortable and air conditioning units in the living room and bedroom were great, although the one in the bedroom was a bit loud at times, but not enough to be bothersome or keep us up.
We really enjoyed the location in Kailua - you can't beat how close it is to the beach, especially considering how little parking there is around. It was definitely worth it to have the private, off-street parking! It felt much more 'local' than Waikiki and the large full kitchen was perfect for eating meals, which was a money-saver. We did eat dinner one night at Buzz's. It was good, but quite expensive - although probably par for the course for the island. We stopped at Costco on our way in from the airport and we did make trips to Safeway almost daily as the prices were closer to what we were used to and beyond some basic spices, the kitchen was not stocked with food items or condiments (although it does have all of the pots pans, plates, silverware, and every other non-food item you need to prepare a meal!) We went to the Farmer's Market at the elementary school on Sunday, which was really fun. The produce was more expensive than at the grocery store, but there was prepared food and smoothies for purchase and live music..
While a little drive away from locations like Hanauma Bay, the Polynesian Cultural Center and the North Shore, we felt like it was worth it to be out of the hustle and bustle of the bigger cities. And the Pillbox Hike - breathtaking views!! The beaches really are beautiful. Overall, we will definitely be recommending this rental to our family and friends!
We enjoyed our 3-day stay very much. This was perfect for our family of 3. The beach was just steps away. Other reviews I read prior to booking complained of low light - we did not find this to be a problem at all. I was also pleased to find that there were many shops (grocery, shopping, etc) within 1-2 miles. If you are looking for kayaking and such, Kailua Beach Rentals is just around the corner - very convenient. We would definitely recommend - very nice home, beautiful beaches and town!
We recently stayed five nights in this apartment. We wanted to spend a few days close to one of the world's most beautiful beaches. Two hundred steps to the beach from this apartment. It's directly across the street from Kailua Beach Park! We walked down early in the morning to watch the sunrise.
Everything is exactly as described. The place actually seemed bigger than what we imagined. For a vacation rental, the kitchen is huge. Nice covered carport and automatic front gate. The place was spotless. The owner was friendly but very unobtrusive. We talked briefly the first day, as he wanted to ensure that we had everything we needed. After that we only saw him in passing once or twice. The unit is very well equipped and supplied, plenty of paper products, soaps, etc.
Very well equipped kitchen with the only thing missing being an oven, but it does have a wine cooler. Come on! You're on vacation, do you really want to bake, but a wine cooler seems important. There was even a rice steamer which we used for one meal and had perfect rice. We used the grill on our private little patio a couple times and it was wonderful. Washer and dryer was a real plus. We also found the bed to be very comfortable.
I would definitely recommend this to anyone.
The accommodation was clean and quiet. The kitchen was better equipped than any other place I have stayed in. We had free use of the washer and drier with laundry detergent provided. The location was perfect, just across the road and down a wee bit to the beach. The owners were pleasant, friendly, helpful and unobtrusive. I would certainly stay at this place again and I have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone who is looking for a place in this area.
This is THE perfect place- right next to one beach, around the corner from another, close to restaurants and stores. Well equiped kitchen, games, toys, beach toys, BBQ, movies, TV, DVD, radio, lots of closet space and storage, full laundry. Everything you need. Would definitely go back. We rarely saw the owners, but we had a very late flight out and there was no one checking in right after us so we could stay through the afternoon. The only improvement would be a dishwasher but honestly we probably would never have used it. Loved it!!!
