About Chip Doyle

I am a single dad with 2 teenage daughters. This is our home and we are excited to share it with you.

Chip Doyle purchased this house in 2007

Why Chip Doyle chose Kailua

Newly built and renovated in 2008. Resort-style finishes and furniture. High-end Wolf Sub-Zero appliances, piano, pool, outdoor cooking and living area...very fun family home across from the beach. Better than on the beach, believe me.

What makes this house unique

Quiet and private. Secure yard for little kids. Beach kayak and other beach toys available. Walk to Kailua town, Kalapawai Market, Lanikai Beach, Whole Foods, etc. Take a bottle of wine down to the beach and enjoy the stars.

Hawaiian Dream

  • 5 of 5

Chip's home was perfect for our group of 8; my husband and I, three sons and three girlfriends. We were in Hawaii for a family wedding so the home provided a gathering place for beach activities and pool time. The bedroom/bathroom configuration was perfect. It was important that each room have a bathroom. The bedrooms were separated from the main living area making it perfect for privacy. We cooked and barbecued many nights. The kitchen had everything we needed. With the beach so close, who would have thought that we would use the pool as much as we did. We were able to view the fireworks on the 4th of July. Chip said that it would be spectacular and it was. The location was great for us as we traveled to Honolulu for a rehearsal dinner and attended the wedding at Kualoa Ranch. I hope to be able to return very soon and would positively rent this home again and again. Chip was a fabulous host and I will recommend this home to friends and family.

My fiance and I rented this property during our wedding in April 2016. Seven us of stayed in the house, and it was absolutely PERFECT. If anything, the pictures do not do the house justice. The house itself is gorgeous, with so much room to socialize, entertain and hang out. The bedrooms are all in the corners of the house, so each room is quiet and private. The house is stocked with everything you might need, from wine glasses to board games to boogie boards to outdoor grill. We loved having the beach right across the street and the pool and lanai in the back. We had people over most days and everyone remarked that the house was stunning and perfect for entertaining. Quiet hours are 8am - 9pm daily since the house is in a residential neighborhood, but just bring the party inside and it's fine.

Chip was easy to work with and answered all my questions during the booking process, and he came over once we arrived to show us a few tricks about the house. I would recommend this property to anyone and would absolutely love to return someday! Thank you, Chip!

Best spring break vacation ever.

  • 5 of 5

I was stressed out as I planned this big spring break trip to Hawaii for my mom & dad ( their in their 70's and nervous travelers), my brother and his 3 pre-teens and my wife and our 4 teenagers. My biggest concern was getting there and it not being as advertised. Chip and I sent text messages calls and emails back and forth several times while he worked with me to make me feel very comfortable about the payments of funds. Chip is easy to Google and you'll find that he is a fine, upstanding and long time resident of Oahu. He had raised his family in this house and I am so happy to say that the house and location is everything he says it is. It's not even 15 yards from the driveway to the sandy path to the beach which we walked on for every sunrise. The dark bottomed pool kept the water a perfect temp for the kids to play in. We walked into Kailua for local made ice cream. I can't say enough about the place or of its owner, Chip. We will be happy to come back and repeat that 2 weeks in the near future.

Great Location - Quiet Setting

  • 5 of 5

A chance to live in paradise for even one week is the chance of a lifetime... 5 family members and I had that opportunity with our stay at Chip's house. I miss having the sand and waves of Kailua beach under my feet every morning; just a short walk from the home and up a small sandy rise. The view at sunrise was amazing! Close to areas for shopping and necessities and easy access to highways to explore other parts of the island. The layout for a large group is great and we enjoyed our meals on the lanai. Love the house with everything you need for a home away from home. Mahalo Chip for the welcome basket and abundant information about the island. A few neighboring dogs barking & howling at times during "quiet time", but not much that can be done about that. All in all a great time!!

Amazing Home - So Close to the Beach!

  • 5 of 5

It's been two months since our vacation and we are still taking about how wonderful it was to have stayed at Chip's house! Just the other day our youngest reminded us how much he loved Hawaii and "our Hawaii house." The house is beautiful - has all of the amenities you need and more! The sound system was such a bonus! Loved having a/c in the bedrooms and I can't say enough about the yard and pool. We loved eating meals on the lanai and it's so nice to be able to walk back from the beach (two minute walk), rinse off using the outside shower and jump into the pool. We went with another family and never felt like we were on top of each other. The layout of the bedrooms (2 on each side of the house) would work well for a large family (with children of any age), multiple families or couples. The house is a quick drive (or even walking distance) to Kailua town. The owner was very responsive and gave us a lot of information related to the area. We have already recommended this house to others and hope to come back soon! Thanks for sharing your house with us!!

Epic Hawaiian Holiday!

  • 5 of 5

This lovely home tucked away on a private road is a two minute walk to Kailua beach. Kailua beach is the best spot on the island for families and pleasant walks up and down the soft shoreline. Our entire family, including grandparents and little children, all loved this beach house: gourmet kitchen, comfortable bedrooms, great floor plan, swimming pool, bbq grill, outdoor shower, grass play area, meals on the patio, and large washer and dryer. Also, really appreciate the convenience of Sonos sound system and the media room for relaxing late at night after a long day of sun and activities. A high recommend to friends and looking forward to returning here again. Owner is very responsive and advised us on various local activities and logistics. Plus, we lost a pair of eyeglasses and the owner found them and shipped them back to us without delay. Thank you very much, Chip. We had a great visit and look forward to seeing you again and again!!!
