About the property

Apartment, (sleeps 2) 1 Bedroom w/king bed, 1 bathroom, close to beach

Enjoy the beauty and privacy of your own shaded, tropical patio or walk one block to Kailua Beach Park with its lawns, trees, and three-mile, white-sand beach. It is an easy walk to Lanikai Beach which Conde Nast Magazine has called the number one beach in America.

We are tucked away on a private lane on the windward side of Oahu about 30 minutes from the Honolulu Airport. This newly renovated apartment is part of our home, but is completely private. It has a separate, gated entrance featuring a private patio with a table and four chairs. The patio is landscaped with the tropical plants; red ginger, heliconia and ti plants. There is only one off-street parking place for your rental car and there is rarely any additional parking on our narrow lane (so no traffic noise!)

This convenient, comfortable, one-bedroom apartment has wireless Internet access and an air conditioner in the bedroom. There is a king-size bed in the bedroom and a Television and DVD player in the living room. The small kitchenette does not have a built-in stove or oven but it does have a microwave oven, a hot plate, a refrigerator, a rice cooker as well as other appliances to prepare your own meals or you can enjoy Kailua's multitude of good restaurants. The bathroom has a shower, tile floor, a full length mirror and lots of towels. The Haven has its own washer and dryer so you can pack light for your visit to Oahu's best beach community.

We are in a residential neighborhood and must maintain the goodwill of our neighbors so please no parties and maintain quiet at all times.

Please no smoking on premises.

Perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

First, Jim & Nina are great - welcoming, friendly and helpful. The unit is well appointed, clean, quiet and private. Perfect for the solo traveler, couple or small family (couch is a futon). Having a separate living room, bedroom, kitchen and bath made it seem like staying in a small house or condo. The location is great too - on a quiet street, far from the hustle of Waikiki/Honolulu, yet walking distance to two beautiful, idyllic beaches - Kailua and Lanikai beaches. Great spot to relax or to go off on a scenic drive just south of Kailua or set off on one of numerous hikes close by. And if traffic isn't bad, it's only 30 minutes to the airport. Kailua itself is a nice small town but yet has numerous grocery stores, shops and eateries. Very glad I picked Jim and Nina's place. Would definitely stay again. Mahalo!

We loved the property and the location

  • 5 of 5

Blue Water Haven was the perfect place for us. The unit was clean and neat and the location was very convenient to the beach, shopping and site seeing. The O'Donnell's were wonderful hosts. We would certainly recommend it to our friends and family and if the opportunity arises, we would go back there again.

Fantastic location near the beach

  • 5 of 5

A clean, roomy vacation rental. It is just a short walk to Kailua Beach and a convenient walk to Lanikai Beach. Jim and Nina are both welcoming and personable. I would definitely stay here again in the future.

Absolutely Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

I had stayed at Jim and Nina's rental unit several times before. Well, I also had stayed at another vacation rentals in Lanikai, but this one is the best place. Because it's so clean, quiet (oh, thank your for your kindness, Nina! About THAT matter.), and very close to the beautiful Kailua & Lanikai beaches. I really enjoyed every hour every moments at this place. I will visit here again! My travel to Hawaii would be always started to check if there is an availability at Jim & Nina's. This is the most important thing for me, you know!
