Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Kittie & Tom,

Just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our vacation in Kailua and Oahu. Your house and little guest house was great for our family and we thoroughly enjoyed having this special place that fit our family perfectly. I got a little guest house in back all to myself and the rest of the family were in the main house. Having a place that we could all stay in together was what we were looking for when we started planning this vacation and finding your place just fit the bill.

Fantastic location for a group stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our entire family of 7 really enjoyed the property. It was VERY well equipped with everything you can imagine you might need. The location so close to Kailua Beach made it an easy walk with the kids and having a cart to pull with all the beach toys was SUPER convenient so we didn't have to drive to the beach. The kids also really enjoyed the pool, great for when you just wanted to stay at the house. I would highly recommend this property to anyone travelling with a group.

Mahalo Kittie for allowing us to enjoy your property!!!!

Outstanding location and home- enjoyed by all!

  • 5 of 5

Our group could not have been more pleased with this property for our family vacation. We have 4 generations of family stay at the home- 7 adults and 2 kids- and we all loved it. There was room for everyone. We loved the pool and the beautiful backyard- and enjoyed the spacious home and well appointed kitchen. The house came equipped with everything we could possibly need for our stay, and the short walk to the beach was easy and enjoyable. We would definitely stay here again on our next trip to Oahu! Thank you!!

Great Location and Kitty was great to work with

  • 5 of 5

Kitty and Janelle were wonderful to work with and were as they say just a phone call away. Kailua Beach park was about a 5 minute walk in one direction and Whole foods and other shopping about a 10-12 minute walk in the other. The bicycle rental shop, a pizza place, a couple of convenience stores (one with great coffee) were about 2 minutes walk toward the beach. Kailua beach and its neighbor Lanikai beach are two of the prettiest beaches I have ever visited and to be able to take that 5 minute walk in the morning to catch the sunrise was worth the price of admission on its own. This is an older neighborhood home that is very well taken care of, had been recently updated and was very clean and well appointed. The master bedroom where my wife and I stayed was a good size with a big closet, a door to the courtyard and a newly remodeled bathroom. There is a living room, a nice big dining room table that seats 8 and a sunroom with a big flat screen TV that led out to the courtyard and the backyard and pool. Mostly we had our meals at the table by the pool which was next to the BBQ and a few Tiki torches we lit at night when we were out there. We had 2 cars and there was ample parking off the street in the driveway. There is quite a bit of traffic going by the house especially during beach hours but it isn't noisy and there is a nice big sidewalk and places to cross. All in all a great week in Kailua. Thank you Kitty we will gladly recommend you and your home to our friends.

A great choice

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of six adults and three children who were in Kailua to celebrate Christmas, welcome in 2018 and have tons of fun in the area and around Oahu We were delighted with our choice of housing in Kailua. It was clean, well equipped (kitchen had spices, indoor and outdoor dishes: pool toys, beach toys, kayaks, games, etc) and well located. We often walked to the nearby basketball courts, the farmers' market, the town centre and of course the beach. The beaches are lovely, safe and with plenty of space for families. From this base we spent time on the North Shore, Hanauma Bay, Waikiki and snorkelling in nearby bays. The house is as described on the website. The master bedroom is on the right side of the house and the other two bedrooms are on the left side. The kitchen, dining area and living room separate the bedrooms. There is a lovely enclosed sunroom off the living room with sliding glass doors. We had plenty of space for all of us. The front yard provides the parking space. The backyard has the pool, lawn, chairs, table, bbq and shade from lovely palm trees. My wife and I stayed in the ohana just behind the pool. Our host was frequently in touch via email and responded promptly when we had questions or concerns. During a family emergency she was very thoughtful and assisted as she could. If you want location (both on Oahu and in Kailua), space, cleanliness, a fully stocked house and yard in a great community then you'll want to add this home to your "short list".

We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

My family really enjoyed staying here for a week! The house was perfect for our group with a large kitchen, bunk beds for the kids and a pull out sofabed. I had trouble with the WiFi on my iPhone but others in our group were able to access it. We were impressed that so much was supplied for us - shampoo, hair dryer, beach/pool toys, wagon, laundry detergent, beach towels, even a drawer of misc tools. The location was perfect, just a short 7 minute walk to the beach. We loved kailua & lanikai beaches. A little windy on a few days. Pillbox hike at sunrise was breathtaking! The backyard was lovely. The pool was a little chilly and the lighting didn’t come on at night but the tiki torches were so fun. It was so relaxing during the day (while the baby napped). If bringing children, consider bringing rubber bands to tie up all the cabinets. You may want to child proof a little upon arrival. But I highly recommend this house!! You won’t regret staying here!
