Overview

Oahu Apartment Rental Photos and Description

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.

Excellent place to stay- Great location, hosts

  • 5 of 5

Jim and Nina were great- there if we needed them, gave us our privacy. They have a cute little one bedroom that is quiet and clean with a backyard area and kitchenette. We had a great time and wanted for nothing. It is the best location because Kailua and Lanikai are awesome beaches, but the area right around Kailua Beach Park can have some interesting characters in the evening, so we did not want to be right there in front. During the day, beautiful. Very safe and family oriented. We spent most mornings on Lanikai Beach and thought it was our best vacation, ever. Highly recommend.

Perfect place to stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed Blue Water Haven and highly recommend it to anyone wanting to stay in Kailua Beach. The private patio was great, the bedroom had air conditioning - everything was perfect! We had a chance to meet Jim - very nice person, very accommodating, and wanted to make sure we had everything we needed. We will definitely stay here again!

Comfortable and well equipped

  • 5 of 5

We felt welcome as soon as we arrived. Jim was very personable and hospitable. We didn't meet Nina until the day before we left as she was ill, but she's a lovely person as well. The property was immaculate, comfortable, well stocked, and a quick walk to the beach. They thought of everything. I'd recommend this over a hotel or condo any day.

Perfect locale, and great accomodation

  • 4 of 5

Situated on a quiet street, a five minute walk from kailua beach park, five minute walk from Buzz's, and a ten minute walk to lanikai. Jim and Nina have created a thoughtful retreat which includes a very private outdoor sitting/eating area that is covered so that you may still enjoy your meals while it rains. A comfy bed, plenty of linens, washer/dryer and a large fridge, plus your own off street parking. That's all I need while on vacation... We have been here twice and will continue to come here.
