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.
This is a beautiful, spacious home and Harry is a wonderful host. We were celebrating a wedding nearby and had a welcome party at the house for out-of-town guests. With large sitting areas both indoors and on the patio, it worked well. The property is well-kept and located within walking distance of a beach. Beach towels and toys are provided in the 3-car garage. Harry was easy to get in touch with and responded quickly with a portable air conditioner when the AC went out in one of the bedrooms. He had the kitchen well-stocked with dishes, serving pieces, and just about any appliance you could want: toaster, rice cooker, crockpot, coffeemaker, 2 ovens plus microwave, etc. The cabinet is stocked with various spices. He had a fruit basket to welcome us along with Kona coffee, taro rolls, macadamia candies, bottled water, and chips. A great introduction to Hawaii and what it has to offer. The bedrooms seem to be sound proof since we had people on different sleep schedules. Name brand shampoo and conditioner were in each bathroom along with both bar and liquid soap. We had 10 adults staying in the 5 bedrooms and it was nice to have all those bathrooms, plus an extra by the front door. He was ready with a rollaway when one guest didn't want to share a bed. The laundry was convenient and well-stocked and there were detergents for both the dishwasher or for handwashing dishes. I can't really think of anything that I missed having. There is ample parking for 5-6 cars with careful maunuvering. The traffic can be constant on the street but drivers were pretty good about letting you in. And, yes, the frontyard is the driveway. There are stores and churches nearby, including a Target not very far away. When the bride got home, she said, "I want to go back and live in that house!" Thank you, Harry, for making our stay on Oahu wonderful.
There were 7 of us. We had 2 suppers with 14 people total. Plenty of room, ideal gathering place. My daughter lives in Hawaii, she was impressed with this beautiful house. I'll come back as soon as I can!
We had booked this last May and I had started asking Harry questions about the house several months in advance...He always answered promptly and was so helpful and assuring. The pictures don't do justice to the actual house and when I walked in the house, my breath was taken away because of the spaciousness of it. It is a dream home for a large group. You would never even have to interact if, for some reason, the group did not get along because everyone has their own private bath and bedroom...the lanais and common areas are spacious. We had toddlers and they loved having the huge hall to play in. Outside the grassy area is totally fenced in and there are lizards to hunt which was the highlight of the trip for the six year old. Harry had such a well stocked kitchen with all appliances needed. There were ample pots and pans, dishes, and two full ovens. There were even some food items in the kitchen that we were able to use. He had provided bottled water and some nice treats and fruit. Truly the aloha spirit. You really do not need to bring anything except your toothbrush, toothpaste and clothes! Harry is an excellent host and is helpful, but not intrusive. He is very thoughtful. He wanted to be sure nobody was taking a nap before he mowed the lawn. He is just a fun person to talk to as well. Location, location, location. A five minute walk to the beach! Couldn't be better. It is also so easy to get to from the airport on H-3. Plenty of parking inside the gate. The only down side is that we could not stay longer! I would highly recommend this place, but hopefully not too many people will start using it because if we want to use it again, we might not be able to get in!!! Mahalo Harry.
The pictures don’t describe how spacious this home is. It is well-appointed and meticulously maintained. Our family, (9 adults & 2 children) spent 5 nights together and never felt like we were crowded. Everyone had their own bed/bath and there were multiple common areas both inside and outside to gather. The home is in a great location, close to everything including beautiful Kailua beach which is just steps away. Harry, the owner, could not have been more accommodating and helpful.
If you are considering renting this home, you will not be disappointed.
Thank you, Harry! We enjoyed your beautiful home and wonderful hospitality!
All the positive reviews are true. Harry is a wonderful host; not at all intrusive but always immediately available toanswer the occassional question. Much to do and grocery stores and cafes in easy walking distance. Very close to a really great, uncrowded beach. The best rental experience we have ever had, by far.
This property is a great place for four or five couples. Each could function independently if they prefer, with as much or as little interaction as they prefer. Each bedroom is a master suite, with its own well-appointed bathroom and closet, and is isolated from the others. There is a living room and a large lanai on each floor. The kitchen is spacious, well laid out, and amply equipped, including a second oven and a walk-in pantry. We didn't use the entertainment system, but it is up-to-date and spread through out the house. Most of the floors are large ceramic tiles; quite functional in a tropical climate and easy to keep clean. Though it is on a busy street, it is very quiet. It is on the edge of the popular Kailua Beach Park and one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. The 2-mile trail through the park and along Lanikai Beach is a great place to run or walk.
225 steps to Kailua Beach, a 3-mile stretch of white sand and safe swimming. Within close walking distance is a Beach Park, Buzz's Steak House, Shave Ice, Convenient Stores, Kayak Rentals, and a Medical Clinic.
