We were in love with this apartment- the view of Kailua was amazing from the lanai and even sitting on the couch in the living room. There was everything you needed and more in the apartment. Would def recommend if you are staying in beautiful Kailua.
Island Home away from Home....
What a wonderful home tucked away in the quiet neighborhood of Kailua. Patty was wonderful and greeted us like family with hugs. The apartment was just as described with a beautiful lanai. Thank you again Patty for sharing your home and all the beach equipment!
Excellent, excellent! Very clean, very roomy!
We spent a week here and totally loved our stay. Patty and Bob were excellent and took care of us so well. The apartment was very roomy, very clean, and very well-stocked with everything we needed. There were beautiful bouquets of flowers and an assortment of fruits and other yummies to welcome us. The lanai was awesome. We ate most of our meals on the lanai and loved just hanging out there---great views! Our children hogged the hammocks most of the time, but that was okay. It was great having access to all the beach gear as well.....towels, beach chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards, paddle boards, life vests, etc. We also really appreciated all the recommendations and helpful tips Patty gave us...nice to have input from a local who knows the area well! Great place, very accommodating host/hostess...would highly recommend!
Beautifully, relaxing apartment with all the comforts of home
We have just returned home from a couple of weeks on Oahu. For eight nights we stayed in Kailua and stayed at Patty and Bobs Kauhale apartment and wow did it work it's magic on us! I have to say we arrived pretty frazzled after a long flight, car and suitcase troubles, but it didn't take long to start to relax thanks to Patty and Bob and their wonderful place.
Patty greeted us like a long lost friend and showed us around the apartment and there was plenty to see. My husband, daughter and her husband and I fitted very nicely into the one bedroom apartment. I was a little concerned about the kids having a fold down bed, but they were happy and comfortable on it for the whole stay. Our bedroom was a restful spot with a ton of storage and comfy chair for relaxing. The full kitchen was great with everything you could possibly need - even for baking! The bathroom was nicely done and there was a ton of room for everyone's towels etc. Ther's a comfortable sofa for watching the tv or a dvd (provided) and lots of books to read and kids games and toys. Our most favourite spot was the lanai with it's hammocks and outdoor furniture and resident family of little geckos. We spent lots of time there, just chilling. The views from there are beautiful and a million miles from what can be a, crazy at times, Waikiki.
But what makes this place special is the attention to detail with all the extras that Patty and Bob happily provide. The suncreen, every bit of beach gear you could possibly want, the shampoo, conditioner, the welcome basket and the fresh tropical flowers and even a cold beer for everyone in the fridge on arrival. And nothing is too much trouble whether its printing off tickets to attractions or fixing the ice dispenser!
If you're looking for a comfortable, relaxing place to make yourself at home for a while in Kailua I would happily recommend Kauhale and hope to return soon.
Exactly as advertised and more
The place was great and exactly as advertised. We appreciated the extra space and Patty made the place incredibly accommodating for our ~20 month old. Having never stayed in Oahu before, we were pretty happy with the Kailua location and got to see everything we wanted from this location. Wonderful hosts and a wonderful place.
Perfect for small children
I am pleased to write this review! We traveled with our two kids, ages 3 and 7 months. We are so glad that we stayed here. So many highlights, but we especially loved:
1. When we arrived, we were greeted with two giant flower arrangements, a gift basket with delicious snacks. Patty greeted us and helped us to settle in -- she is the unit's owner and delightful concierge;
2. A pack and play was set up in the master bedroom with soft blankets. Patty also offered several options for the three year old;
3. The unit has TONS of fun toys and games;
4. Patty graciously offers a large selection of beach toys, a stroller, towels, sunscreen, reusable bags for shopping, paddle boards, snorkel gear, etc. -- we used them all!
5. The kitchen was fully stocked with cookware of every kind;
6. The patio is amazing -- two comfortable hammocks and sweeping views;
7. Washer/Dryer-- if you have kids, you understand this;
8. Patty was extremely responsive and so very kind. It was having the best of both worlds -- privacy, yet someone local to call on for all the tips.
What we loved MOST was staying in Kailua. It is the perfect beach town. This unit is in a very nice neighborhood and less than a 5 minute drive from the beach and downtown Kailua and only 15-20 minutes from Honolulu. We explored all over Oahu and hands down, the best beaches and hikes were in Kailua.
We look forward to staying here on our next vacation. Mahalo!
