Overview

Kuulei Tract House Rental Photos and Description

Newer 5-Bedroom/6-Bath Home (sleeps 10), 5,000 sft., 225 Steps to Sandy Beach

E Komo Mai! Welcome to our newer 5-bedroom/6-bath private home, located in the desirable windward town of Kailua, Oahu. This beachside residence is within close walking distance to a 3-mile stretch of one of the best swimming beaches on Oahu. Stores, restaurants, shave ice, kayak rentals, and a medical clinic, are all within eyesight too.

Our home bodes well for those large families or gatherings of best friends that want to enjoy each others company, yet have the space to relax or search out privacy throughout this 5,000 sft. home.

Our goal is to provide our guests with all the comforts they would expect on a vacation in paradise. Imagine, every bedroom in this home has its own private bathroom. All of the 5-bathrooms have at least a shower, and 2 have an extra tub/shower feature. Additionally, all of the 5-bedrooms have large closets, of which 4 are walk-in's. Each bedroom has its own flat screen television and a dedicated split air conditioning unit for added comfort.

The well furnished kitchen boasts granite countertops and contains upscale major appliances with brand names such as Sub-Zero, Wolf, and Bosch. A nook that seats 4 comfortably adjoins the main kitchen area along with a spacious pantry stocked with cooking paraphernalia, small appliances, and paper products.

There are 2 enormous covered outdoor lanai's, approximately 750 sft. each in size, both facing directly towards the cool prevailing trade winds. Numerous tables and chairs are provided on each lanai, with a teak dining set (seats 10) and a Weber gas BBQ positioned on the downstairs lanai for covered outdoor dining enjoyment.

Perfect house and location for a group

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for a family vacation with 8 adults and 2 small children. What a perfect place for us!

I think the other reviews have said it all, but to sum it up:

The house is spacious (probably more spacious than you can imagine), clean, like new, well-equipped, and private. The beds are soft and comfortable. There are a few large sitting areas and the TV room is separated by a sliding door that helped to regulate sound and temperature without feeling so separate that we weren't together. The yard, covered patio and upper lanai were all private and comfortable.

Harry is a very friendly and gracious host, available by by phone or texting if we needed him, but otherwise invisible.

The location is a five-minute walk from one of the best beaches! Close enough that even our 1.5 year-old could walk there and back. I like Kailua beach because it does not usually have strong currents, has a sandy floor, and you can easily find shade if you want it. This beach often has a lot of wind but can also be very calm. The view from the beach is particularly beautiful because of the cove and islands. We enjoyed going to the beach 3-4 times each day and the large wagon that Harry provides helped transport the children and other items when needed. The market right next door serves good coffee and has a small selection of fresh deli salads and sandwiches, as well as other convenience items. There are also a couple of other shops within a block but the main shopping town is about one mile away.

We were sad to leave and hope to return some day. We highly recommend this home.

Gorgeous house and great location!

  • 5 of 5

The house is absolutely beautiful. Harry greets you when you arrive at the house (and doesn't bother you unless you need some help). Harry has a generous welcome basket and has a fully stocked kitchen which is a very rare occurrence when renting a house. He stocked us with water enough for our whole stay. Each room has its own bathroom (with shampoo and conditioner) walk-in-closet, split AC unit and TV which is convenient! The split ACs in each room cooled down fhe house fairly quickly. They are very quiet unlike window units. The house is also so spacious we didn't even utilize all areas of the house. I cannot stress how close Harry's house is to Kailua beach. The beach is absolutely stunning, there are no words to describe the beauty of this beach. There were boogie boards, beach chairs, floaties, a wagon to pull your beach items, coolers, sand toys, water shoes and more! There is a market right next door if you need any miscellaneous items. His house is also a 5 minute drive into town near Target, supermarkets, Whole Foods, restaurants. Our party left Oahu and went to Maui, we could not stop talking about Harry - everything to Harry's house, Harry's beach, Harry's location nothing compared. I would definitely rent out his house again! Mahalo Harry for the great memories.

Outstanding!!!

  • 5 of 5

The house had everything you could want and more. Harry had it fully stocked with beach chairs, towels, sand toys, and a wagon to carry everything down to the beach. The kitchen had almost every condiment, spice, and oil you could think of. Plus ziplock bags, bottles of water, fresh fruit, Hawaiian snacks, and coffee.

The house had a very open feel and felt quite large. Each bedroom had a large bathroom and closet, and cable TV in every bedroom and living area. The outdoor spaces were very peaceful and accommodated our large party of 9.

The beach was a very easy walking distance...and what a beautiful beach it is! Good for kids and adults of all ages. You'd never know that Harry was there, but if you text him he's happy to meet you outside and give directions or whatever you need. It's also nice having someone to look out for the place while you're off doing things. Thanks for everything Harry:)

Couldn't ask for a better play to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our entire family was more than impressed on how large this house was! Not only did it accommodate our family of 10 but it also accommodated our additional family that was on the same trip and stayed on other areas of the island. My husband and I were celebrating our 10 year wedding anniversary and renewing our vows so we even had at least 20 guests in our house at times and still wasn't crowded. Upon arriving to house, Harry greeted us out front and gave us a complete and informative tour of the house. He even provided us with a gift basket of many different kinds of Hawaiian delicacies. When Harry says that house is stocked with everything, he meant everything! From cooking ingredients to bathroom soap and shampoo, we really didn't have to bring anything else besides our personal toiletries and purchase our own ingredients to cook our special meals. Photos provided doesn't even do justice on how large and spacious this house was. Right when we walked in we were all so very shocked on how much space there was! There was plenty of space in the main living room which was connected to the dining room and kitchen. There was also a good size family room with a big flat screen TV off to the side that even has a sliding window door to close out any sound coming out from the room. Both the back and upstairs lanai's were amazing and so relaxing with all the plants and greenery. It was perfect for the backyard BBQ's that we had a few nights staying there. A bonus was the upstairs living room area that gave us more than enough space than we needed while everyone was up and around either getting ready for the day or just simply needed some space to relax away from the family bustle. We also cannot be more happy on how close Kailua beach was! Our days started off perfect with a cup of macadamia nut coffee from the Kalapawai Market and and quick walk to the beach to catch the morning sunrise. Even though Harry lived right off the same property, never once was he a bother. He was actually quick to respond to any questions or problems. We had a minor set back on the A/C units in two of the bedrooms, but he made it a priority be sure that we were comfortable in every way by providing a temporary portable A/C unit and it worked out completely fine. We couldn't ask for a better play to stay in Oahu. We will definitely be back again! Thank you Harry.

This place is superb!

  • 5 of 5

This house is very spacious and comfortable and made a great place to stay with a mix of friends and family. The location is also perfect with a short walk to beautiful Kailua beach and best of all a fantastic local market/bottleshop/take away right next door. I highly recommend this place.

Beautiful two story spacious home...Harry is the greatest!

  • 5 of 5

So many wonderful things have already been said about Harry and his beautiful home, and they are all true. I was reading back over the reviews to see if I could add anything that hadn't already been said, but the reviews say it all in a variety of words. Read them, I found a wealth of information. There is one thing I can add. This home is not a condo. It is a gorgeous two story, beautifully decorated home. As lovely as the photos are, they do not do this home justice. It is spacious beyond belief. The open concept kitchen and dining room allow those cooking to keep an eye on small children and converse with other family members. Harry's home, especially the kitchen and pantry, lack nothing; there is even a small breakfast nook off the kitchen. The two bedrooms on the first floor are away from the main living area and very private, each with their own bath. The bedrooms on the second floor are also very private and comfortable, also with their own bathroom.

The yard is well kept and large enough for children to play. We were a group between the ages of 1 - 73 years. We were thrilled to fine a home without a pool or Jacuzzi for the safety of the small children and you don't need either with the beautiful beach just a block away. Kailua Beach is perfect for young children. The home is also well suited to people with disabilities.

I can't say enough about Harry. He is kind and considerate, easy going, and just a phone call or text away if you ever need him or have a question. He never disturbed us and said the giggles and laughter of small children never disturbed him in his private quarters which is in a totally separate part of the home. I'm sorry we didn't invite him to share a meal with us; I consider him a friend and will definitely include him next trip as we can't wait to go back.

I'll just add book early; we booked nine months in advance. As an aside, I got my first ever ear infection on the flight over and got immediate relief and excellent care at the Urgent Care facility which is less than two blocks away.

Mahalo, Harry, for being the best host ever!

Patty Mac and family
