Why Aj W chose Kailua

Location. Location. Location! We are nestled in a small area of Kailua known as 'Enchanted Lakes'. We have a beautiful pool which offers lots of privacy, beautiful grounds to relax on and beautiful units which are a home-away-from-home.

What makes this house unique

Our central location provides easy access to the beach (5 minute drive), Kailua-town, Sea-Life Park (Dolphin viewing), Coastal Drives and Waikiki (home to many famous tourist attractions).

PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with our family before our wedding and the place was absolutely amazing. Having never used VRBO before I was a little nervous just going off pictures and reviews, but this place turned out to be as good, if not better than the photos. First off, the unit is actually part of 4 units on the property, two studios (one above and one to the side) and the extremely nice and helpful owner also lives here. We had good luck with awesome, friendly neighbors who became our friends. The pool is much bigger than I thought from the photos and sharing it was not a big deal at all, especially since most people are out and about during the day, but it was fun getting to know people in the evening. The backyard has plenty of space to spread out and is nicely landscaped. The unit we stayed in was perfect for our group of 6 (3 couples), with a washer/dryer, huge kitchen, living room and 2 bathrooms on the bottom floor of the house. The location was so nice as Kailua beach is our favorite. There's also a Target and Safeway about 5 minutes down the street. It's located in a very quiet neighborhood and has plenty of parking. There were tons of pool toys and 4 boogie boards as well as snorkeling equipment which was awesome and saved us money so that we didn't have to rent. Like others have said, it would be awesome to rent all the units for a family gathering, but even still, totally worth it to just rent one unit for the pool, atmosphere, comfy beds and A/C. We would love to stay here again! Thank you for all of your help and hospitality Melanie!

Great Place for Extended Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My wife and our daughter, her husband, two other couples and an adult friend rented the main 3 bedroom unit and the upstairs studio. It was a terrific visit. I agree with some of the earlier reviews that air conditioning in the living room would have helped. But the weather was great, the pool enticing and the owners were great. Kitchen spacious and had every machine you'd ever need. Fridge huge and washer dryer a great asset.

Can't wait to come back next year.

The best place enjoy Kailua life!

  • 5 of 5

While our stay, we enjoyed comfortable and clean rooms, huge kitchen, very rich equipment for cooking and the air of kailua.

we can use shared athletic gym, lanai and beautiful pool. When we ate lunch boxes, which we bought from Hibachi in Kailua city, at lanai, we felt free from all urban stress.

We need a car because there are no shops and restaurants in our walking area.

Perfect family vacation spot

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed here with my parents and my aunt and uncle. There was plenty of space for all of us to spread out and have dinner there almost every night - in fact the huge beautiful kitchen made us wish we had more family members around to host a party! The pool area is really lovely and just like in the photos, though in the photos you can't tell that it's actually quite deep - so not the best for small children but great for us. The gym is small with no cardio equipment, but basic free weights and plenty of floor space with yoga mats for pilates or yoga. The location is also great - while you wouldn't want to necessarily walk to the beach, Kailua Beach Park is only a 5 minute drive away and it's a perfect stretch of supersoft white sand with calm waters you can definitely swim in - just beware the Portuguese Man-o-War jellies, which apparently are pretty common this time of year and give a pretty powerful sting.

I gave 4 stars instead of 5 because of the sound insulation and cleanliness of a few external things. Our second night there, renters moved into the upstairs unit and we could hear every step they took, quite loudly. Still, we'd come back! Ideally with our own family members upstairs so we could freely tell them to walk softer, haha. As for cleanliness, while the entire indoor area of our unit was spotless, the hammock outside was crusted with leaves and dirt so that wasn't the most appealing, and the yoga mats in the gym were pretty dirty so we used a towel over them for exercise. Easy workarounds but they also seem pretty easy to clean between guests.

A couple of really easy improvements I'd suggest for this lovely apartment - it would be great to have more than 1 set of keys for the unit, since with 3 bedrooms it's likely that more than one couple would be staying there. A foam roller for the gym would be a great enhancement to the fitness equipment, and lastly it would have been nice to have some shampoo and body wash in the bathrooms when we got there. We didn't mind buying our own, but would've appreciated having at least a little there for our first day. But these are small things and overall we had a great stay. Thanks very much!

Perfect family destination

  • 4 of 5

We stayed w our 2 boys, aged 10/12, and it worked great. Kitchen is spacious & has everything including waffle maker, crockpot, blender/smoothie maker, even some basic spices. Pool was gr8 anytime of day btwn activities. Main house has 2 bdrms on main floor, and you could sleep 1-2 people in LR.

Close to downtown Kailua + beaches, we thought Kailua beach one of the best cause of its proximity, fine white sand, easy parking + shower/bathroom facilities. If you came w extended family this would b awesome as there is a smaller 2person unit adjacent to gym, and a separate unit upstairs. The only reason I didn't rate it excellent is cause some of gear could b replaced and tv, if u care to use, is quite small. As well furnishings were bit 'tired' looking, although it was quite clean. We would come back.

True Paradise

  • 5 of 5

I write this review sitting by the pool on our last full day at this property, and I just don't want to leave!! This home was even better than the pictures--not only was our rental enormous (easily accommodating 5 adults and an infant) but it was stunningly gorgeous. Each room is spacious and well-designed, everything is bright and clean, and the grounds are incredible...I mean, really incredible. Between the sparkling blue pool, waterfall, koi pond, amazing palapa/gazebo, outdoor eating spaces, and gorgeous landscaping, being in the backyard space feels like you're in your own tropical oasis. The house is only a 8 minute drive to the most beautiful beach I've ever seen (Kailua beach) and has super easy access to town and everything there--from grocery stores to little shops, bars and restaurants to a Macy's store...there's something for everyone. We loved the gear available to borrow at the house--it was so awesome to be able to snag a few beach chairs, a cooler and an umbrella and head to the sand without having to go out and spend $50 on gear. The linen closet was stocked with beach towels, bath towels, and extra linens, and the kitchen had a few little extra essentials as well (though you guys could use a few more bowls!).

We came here for a wedding with our newborn baby in tow, so I was a little nervous about how everything would play out. Let me say...if you are traveling with a baby, this is a great place to stay! We bought a little rock n play baby bed thing when we arrived, and it was the perfect sleeping solution for her. Best of all, being able to tote her around and let her snooze in the shape outside while we enjoyed the sunshine and the pool was awesome. Having a tranquil, quiet place to be as a family was such a treat and we hardly felt like we needed to leave the house because we had everything we were looking for (short of a beach and ocean waves!) right there with us. I will say this may not be the best place for a family with toddlers becUse the pool isn't exactly secured, but if you have non-mobile babies or older kiddos this place is divine.

Flat out amazing!! We can't wait to come back here again--it's the only place we'll ever want to stay. Thank you for an incredible experience!

Map

Car: recommended

Kailua, its a quaint little town known as the water sports capital of Hawaii, Kailua is a great place to go kayaking, learn Kite Surfing, or just lay on the beach! You can go hiking on nearby trails, or visit some of the amazing boutique shops and restaurants in Kailua town. Grab a cup of coffee in the morning at one of the many cafes, or check out one of our awesome farmers markets. Then again you can just relax by the pool outside your room We have got something for every day you are here.
