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.

Harry was a great host supplying us with everything we needed for our vacation. The house had everything necessary for fun at the beach, eg., boogie boards, towels, etc., and a wagon to carry it all to the beach that was a short walk from the house. Harry also had plenty of snacks and bottled water to last us for a week. The house was clean, spacious and had plenty of room for our family of seven. The kids loved having their own room with their own bathroom. We picked bananas everyday off the tree in the backyard. We had a small glitch in one of the bathrooms that Harry handled immediately,

Overall I would recommend this property and would rent it again in a heartbeat.

Kailua and Harry's Home make wonderful memories

  • 5 of 5

I have wonderful memories of growing up in Kailua as a child. I wanted to share those memories with my family. I found Harry's Home on the website and decided to take my husband, my son, his wife and my 3 grandchildren on a family vacation there. I booked the house a year in advance, I highly recommend doing that. My daughter in-law's parents and her fun loving aunt came along. We had 10 people total. We stayed for 11 days and had a wonderful time. Harry's Home was more than I expected. There was so much room for all of us. It was comfortable and clean, Harry's home has everything you need, from the best kitchen appliances to water shoes. All you need are some clothes and a few groceries. Harry is so gracious and always just a phone call away. He goes out of his way to make sure everything runs smooth. He had a wonderful welcome basket waiting for us with fresh pineapples, snacks, and sweet bread. What a treat after a long flight. There is a quaint little market next door that serves the best coffee and good food. Lot's of local people stop there.

Each bedroom has it's own huge bathroom and a extra one in the hall. The home has a tropical feel on the inside and the outside.

There's a lot to do in Kailua and you are not far away from many other beautiful places to visit. Kailua Beach, the best beach in Hawaii, is within walking distance. Kailua Elementary School has a Sunday morning quaint Farmers Market. Lots of good food and local gifts, also within walking distance. The North Shore is worth the drive, take the scenic RT.83 along the coast. Also the scenic coastal Rt.72, and the Pali Highway Rt.61.

I highly recommend Harry's home if you want ever lasting memories. You will not regret it. I hope to be able to go back there again sometime.

Thank you Harry for making our stay in your home so pleasant.

Sincere Mahalo

Hany and family

Most beautiful home ever!

  • 5 of 5

Mr. Harry thinks of everything! We were delayed on our flight, and arrived about 4-5 hours later than expected. There was water in the refrigerator, food on the counter, and comfortable beds awaiting us! Our family enjoyed every moment in this spacious and inviting home. The kitchen is a dream! There are chairs and even a wagon to carry them to the beach, along with boards for body surfing. The bathrooms are large and shower area could fit 3!

Mahalo, Harry! Celebrating our 50th anniversary in Hawaii with our family in your home was the most wonderful vacation we've ever had!

Still the Host with the Most

  • 5 of 5

The only complaint I have about Harry's Place is that he is so popular that it is difficult to find free days in his schedule!! My sister and her husband have been here several times and recommended it to me initially. Those who I invited to enjoy the week with me immediately began talking to Harry about what days he still had open so they could book for their own families. The description was, if anything, too modest. There was plenty of room those anyone wanting quiet time and the beach was close enough to get there quickly but leave after all full sun day. Having the owner onsite was perfect for anything we needed but it took some prodding to get him to join us for dinner to join in our celebration. My daughter even worked on making friends with the parrot who perched on the tree outside their window as he made his rounds each morning.

We were able to get into Honolulu easily for cultural events (Doris Duke Shangri-La estate) but also do the tour of the beaches in the area without any problem. I highly recommend this property but caution that you have to think WAY in advance. I took a risk booking a bit late, but there magically appeared a space to fit in, so I suggest at least starting the conversation. You won't be disappointed.

Kailua is Home and Harry is Ohana!

  • 5 of 5

ALOHA EVERYONE! Wow...We finally made it to Harry's beautiful home. Kailua is the place to be! Let me first say that I emailed Harry, back October 2014. I had looked over his property and decided that his place is where I wanted to have my first family trip with my children and their spouses, and my grandchildren. We booked the site a yr later. During that time Harry answered all questions and concerns. So with 8 adults and 2 toddlers and a new addition to the family that was not in the original plans. Harry was so accommodating to helping us out. We were greeted by Harry upon arrival. He had a beautiful welcome basket and the Aloha greeting and you can feel the Mana (love). Harry, had an extra play pack for our 6 month old grandson. Everything we needed was there. Towels, Beach towels, extra linens, etc. Washer, Dryer, hair dryer was a big help so we didn't have to over pack. So many other items to accommodate the little ones. All activities were in walking distance, or a quick trip down the street. You can go shopping and see different shops, bakery, shaved icee, by car, bike or a nice walk to really see everything and feel the Hawaii spirit.

If you happen to go to the store take a shopping bag with you cause certain stores will not have them and you'll have to walk out with all items by hand (Target was one of them). So be sure to take a bag from the kitchen.

Harry's home was big enough that we were able to enjoy are private space without disturbing others and a break from the grandkids with 2 separate living areas and 2 lanais.

So much to say, but you will never go wrong at Harry's home. This was a 100% awesome vacation and we would come back again if we're able to find availability. Lol.... Mahalo again Harry. God bless until we meet again.

Awesome house and wonderful host

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Harry's condo 6 days, 5 nights at the end of May. The house was very, very spacious. More than enough shower space in our room, and two of the other rooms, to fit about 12 people EACH!! No, we did not try. Lol. All showers had shampoo, conditioner and soap provided. Blow dryers were provided. One very large patio upstairs (2 bedrooms had sliding glass doors to it) and one very large patio downstairs with a big table that 11 of us ate dinner at every night. Large gas grill with full propane tank and grill utensils provided. The "common areas" were spacious with large TVs and plenty of seating. Beautiful flowers and plants in yard. The kitchen was fully stocked with plates, pots, pans, cups, silverware etc. There was a dishwasher, a double sink and another single sink in the island area. It was a short, approximate one block walk to beach. A wagon was provided to transport stuff to beach in. Harry has beach chairs, boogie boards, sand toys, water shoes, beach towels and more for you to use. The beach area was really nice. Plenty of shade or full sun- whatever your preference. It is a kite surfing launch area with a specified swim area. It was fun to watch them. Full front load washer and dryer available with laundry soap and fabric softener. There is a small "grocery" or convenient store right next to the condo. There is an Island Snow which sells the best snow cones we tried while in Hawaii (Maui and Oahu). It also sells clothes and shoes. There is a Bob's Pizzeria by the Island Snow which sells pizza by the slice (very large pieces) or whole pizzas. You can see both of them from the front of the condo. Very easy walking distance. 3 car garage with garage door openers provided to you. I could probably go on and on but I will stop. It was just a GREAT experience. The 10 other people I was with and myself did not have one single complaint! Harry is very friendly and helpful with anything we asked from where to get fresh fruit to fixing sensor on garage door immediately when one of us knocked it loose. A W E S O M E!!!!!!!!!
