Guestbook comments from the owner

If you want a quiet spot away from the bustle of Honolulu and within a 15 minute drive to the beach, this house is for you. Located in Kailua you are near some of the most beautiful beaches on Oahu, according to our daughter who has lived in Hawaii for six years. Situated on a hill in a quiet neighborhood, it is a short walk to the grocery store and about a 35 min. scenic drive over the mountains to Honolulu and points of interest. Carol's home is beautiful and spacious with lots of room for families to spread out and play or relax. Our grandson especially enjoyed watching the geckoes romp in the backyard. The photos are just like what greets you when you arrive. Even though the owners live on the property and share the garage, you have complete privacy. Carol was very helpful. The microwave died the day before we arrived and she delivered a new one our first day there. Thank you Carol for providing a quiet and restful place for our vacation on Oahu.

We recently returned from a wonderful stay at Mala Pua Hale in Kailua, HI. The property is exactly as represented in the photos and description and we would stay there again.

The property manager was very helpful and the owners promptly refunded our deposit after our stay.

We would recommend this property.

A happy place for family reunion

  • 5 of 5

In December, our extended family of 6 adults and a 2-year-old had a delightful one-week stay at Mala Pua Hale. It was nice to have a large bedroom with connected bathroom for our son, daughter-in-law, and grandson to share. All the rooms were comfortable and cheerful. We appreciated the spaciousness and natural light.

We enjoyed the lanai for playing toddler games and using the barbecue. It was pleasant to walk in the neighborhood and trek to the lovely beach.

This was our first visit to Hawaii; Carol took care that we could find our way to the house and become acquainted with the surroundings. In addition to household supplies and amenities, she provided interesting books and DVDs for our use. She and her husband were warmly welcoming, helpful, and unobtrusive throughout our visit.

We would love to return!

Comfortable home in neighborhood, easy walk to beach

  • 4 of 5

Our family of four (two adults, two young adult sons) spent a week here after Christmas. This is the first VRBO in Hawaii we have rented that wasn't in a resort. It was convenient to drive over to Kailua Town or to get to the freeway to Honolulu or elsewhere. The neighborhood was convenient to shopping (Safeway and shops) and an easy walk to Kailua Beach. We saw the Presidential motorcade several times (the Obamas stay down the road.) The house was spacious and comfortable. The bedrooms and living areas were nicely appointed. The house does not have central AC, but we never missed it. The bedrooms have ceiling fans and that was all we needed. The kitchen was a bit tired, but we don't go to Hawaii to spend all of our time in the kitchen! It had all the equipment we needed and there was a new gas grill on the lanai. The one thing I really appreciated was that the kitchen cupboards and refrigerator were stocked with basic supplies that Carol urged us to use - coffee, rice, cooking oil, spices, condiments, marinades. We used some and left other supplies for the next guests. It really made us feel like we were at home and it was nice not to have to purchase something that you would only use a bit of. Also, there is a washer and dryer in the garage and detergent provided. Nice. The house is on the same lot as the owner's apartment plus another apartment. I was concerned that it would be noisy or we'd feel like we were under a microscope. No worries! We only saw the owners twice and never saw the tenants of the other apartment. Despite having walls of windows and sliders, the house was very private.

Great home to stay

  • 5 of 5

Having relatives in Kailua, we come to Hawaii as often as possible. Our family of five (three adult sons) enjoyed this spacious, clean, comfortable and well equiped house. We found everything we needed for a great vacation. Carol is a wonderful host. We can warmly recommend this house and hope to come back soon.

Great home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of eight had a memorable 7 days in Kailua. Carol's home provided the needed comfort of a home away from home for us. The home is clean and spacious and is situated in a nice, clean, and quiet neighborhood. I recommend this beautiful home highly. Thanks, Carol, for the memory. Looking forward to coming back.
