Great location & 1st class accommodation!
This is our second visit to Nancy & Ricks cottage & as before it was just perfect!
Central location with an easy 5/10 minute walk to either the beautiful beach or town, a modern property it is very well maintained and spotlessly clean.
This is the best accommodation choice in Kailua as Nancy and Rick have thought of everything you may need, with their very well designed modern cottage providing the perfect holiday location so you can just arrive, relax and enjoy your holiday.
Cute, clean, and great location
Perfect size for a couple. Short walk to beach, shopping or breweries. Well appointed and very clean. Host were also kind and helpful.
Normally would have given it five stars but on-site construction during our stay was not ideal nor disclosed. Otherwise lovely place.
We had a wonderful time during our stay. This cottage was clean, quiet, and had all the amenities of home. The owners were extremely friendly and knowledgeable about places to visit. We would definitely stay here again in the future!
Couldn’t have been better!
My family and I had a wonderful time staying in Nancy’s cottage. The place was new, clean and safe. We took full advantage of all the amenities - nicely stocked kitchen to cook our own meals, comfy bed, cable TV, washer & dryer, AC, beach chairs, cooler, boogie boards, towels, bikes, etc. The location is central to the gorgeous beaches of Kailua and Lanikai and to Kailua town (Target, Foodland, Whole Foods, Starbucks, farmers market, and lots of restaurants). We couldn’t have been happier with our trip. Mahalo for showing us the aloha spirit and making us feel so welcomed. I hope we meet again!
Aloha Nui Loa to you and your lovely family. It is always pleasant to meet such friendly and happy people. Thank you for the kind remarks. Hope to see you again. Rick and Nancy
The best of locations. Friendly, helpful hosts. We loved it.
This was the ideal spot for us, a pair of retired Canadians escaping a cold winter. Imagine walking just a few blocks to a gorgeous mile-long sandy beach, and just a few more minutes walk to an even better (more swimable) beach at Lanikai. And just 10 minutes' walk the other direction to the town's shopping area, groceries, and three weekly farmers' markets. The cottage had all the basics we needed and more. And our hosts Rick and Nancy made us feel right at home there from the get-go. There's some noise from the often busy street out front, but that was hardly an issue to us. Thanks, Rick and Nancy!
Home away from home
We stayed at Rick and Nancy’s cottage for 3 relaxing weeks. The cottage was fantastic! It has everything you need, inside and out. Spent mornings and evenings sitting on the lanai having coffee / cocktails. (even enjoyed sitting outside listening to the rain). Great outdoor space!
The location is perfect, lots to do in the area, hiking, kayaking, biking, as well as the many other activities the beautiful beaches have to offer. Kailua and Lanikai beaches are spectacular. Great variety of local restaurants and farmers markets you could walk or bike to. Can’t say enough good things about Kailua and especially this cottage that literally felt like home!
Thank you Rick and Nancy, it was great meeting you and we will be back!
Your comments were very kind and appreciated. We too, enjoyed your company here and welcome you back whenever the islands beckon you.

Prime location for walking distance to beach, shopping, hiking activities. Never have to leave Kailua for activities and things to do. From Segway tours to Kayaking, from hiking to farmers markets, from shopping to strolling the lovely beaches; it is all here.
