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.

Great house! Great location!

  • 5 of 5

I went to college at the University of Hawaii and my wife was born and raised on Ohau. I am very familiar with Kailua and have previously rented houses in and around the Kailua area. My wife and I have two small children and this house was ideal for a family. Our friends joined us with their small child and it was extremely accommodating. Great pool!

This house is in a great location! People that are not familiar with the island, you are literally walking distance to the two most beautiful beaches on the island and very close to multiple grocery stores. I would highly recommend this house to not only families, but to a group of adults as well. Hard to beat this place! The contacts you have for the rental house are amazing truly first class!

I will be renting this house again!

Total Paradise - Everything we wanted!

  • 5 of 5

This house was exactly what we were looking for and more! Every bit of it was paradise. The house layout was perfect for our family of 6 adults and 2 children. My husband and I stayed in the ohana house which was excellent. We swam every morning and evening since the private pool was right in our yard! The 2 separate living areas/family rooms in the house was great for nights when some wanted to watch TV or read in one room and others wanted to play games in the other. The kitchen and grill were perfect for all our meals. The beach was a very short walk away which allowed us to take morning walks there and spend time each day in the water. We also walked to the pillbox hike one day which was just so beautiful. On the walk to and from the beach is Island Snow with the best shave ice! We tried so many different flavors - be sure to get a punch card! The pool shed in the yard was filled with everything we needed including - a wagon to get things to and from the beach, chairs to sit in the sand on the beach, a stroller for my young niece, snorkeling gear, inter-tubes and noodles, and anything else you can possible think you'd need for the pool or beach! We walked to the Kailua farmer's market on Thursday evening which was more than just a market and had a ton of food to enjoy right there while listening to live music. The Hibachi Grill provided us with fresh fish and poke each day. I can't express in words just how much my family loved our stay in Kailua. The house is so well taken care of and ready for your stay! We couldn't have been happier with everything - Mahalo Kitty!

This was a fantastic accommodation for our large family get together!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location for beach, town shopping, Starbucks 😊, the best shave ice. Kids loved the pool. The amenities were perfect. Old and young alike want to visit Kailua again and stay there. The Ohana house is perfect if you have a snorer in the group, which we did. Everyone appreciated the Ohana house for that reason. And, last but not least, thank goodness for air conditioners in the bedrooms. Everyone was able to get a great night's sleep. And Kitty is very accessible if you have any needs or requests. It all made for a perfect visit.

Large fun property

  • 4 of 5

This house was large enough for our large extended family, and the floor plan gave us ample privacy. The kitchen was lovely and well equipped for cooking any meal. The master bedroom and living areas did not have AC which made it a bit uncomfortable for those of us that couldn't acclimate to the humidity. There were fans and lots of Windows in those rooms. The pool is old and in need of repair, but it didn't stop us from having many hours of fun in it. I believe they are scheduled to upgrade it this year.

The parking was difficult for us since we had 4 cars. It took some tricky maneuvering to get in and out of the parking lot. If you have just a couple of cars it would be no big deal at all but for our large family it was difficult. I believe they may be considering a change to make the parking area a little easier for multiple vehicles, as the fence and a beautiful tree make some obstacles. It is a central location in Kailua. Close to downtown and the beautiful beach.

Our over all experience was good and we would recommend it to other families.

Awesome Hawaii getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this gorgeous property from May 28-June 2 and we loved the place. Conveniently located at the beautiful town of Kailua, the house is renovated and had everything we needed.

I like how there's washer and dryer so we were able to wash our clothes so pack light! Detergent is provide unless you have specific detergent preference.

They also provide beach towels and other beach gear such as boogie board, floaters and beach chairs.

The pool is good although deep on the farthest end. The kids were still able to swim on the shallow side.

The house is kept clean and has cleaning supplies in the kitchen area. In addition the kitchen fully stocked with spices and some other condiments.

We had some leftover sodas when we checked out so we left it on the fridge. There a lot of cups, glasses, played, utensils to use. They also provide dish soaps.

TARGET store is 5 mins away and little shopping area where you can find Foodland and whole food for groceries.

Beach is 10 mins walk. So beautiful to go for a run from the house to the beach in the morning.

Highly recommending this house and will stay here again when comeback in Oahu.

-*as noted, masters bedroom only has fan but it suffice as you can open windows.

THanks Kittie for answering all my questions and phone calls when we were in the house.

Love this home!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful home and owner! This house is perfect for a family vacation. The location of the home did not disappoint, we were 1.5 blocks from the beach and less than 1/4 mile to town. We enjoyed walking to both and if you don't care to walk, the drive is just as easy. The house is extremely comfortable and well stocked. We enjoyed our family meals prepared in the large kitchen that had every appliance you could think of and a table that seated all 10 of us. If we are ever lucky enough to return to Hawaii, we would definitely rent this home again.

Thanks Kittie, we appreciate you making our vacation so enjoyable.
