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.

beautiful, clean, family friendly

  • 5 of 5

We shared this rental with two other families, close friends of ours and all three families had the best time staying here! We truly enjoyed the beautiful property and loved the convenience of walking right down to the local beach just a few blocks away, or right up to the local shops for coffee, lunch or Hawaiian shaved ice (the best on the island). It was clear that a lot of care and thoughtfulness goes into making this house a home away from home for guests! It was so clean, and well kept, and with all of the added amenities, we felt truly welcomed! We have small children and felt so safe and comfortable there, it's a very family friendly property. Kittie was awesome and checked in on us with a friendly welcome and farewell phone call that was so appreciated. All of our guests have expressed the desire to visit again in a few years, and we feel confident that we will be making this a regular vacation spot for our family. Thank you Kittie and Surfside Properties, We love Hale Nalu Palekaiko and we'll see you again someday! Mahalo! - the Bartas

Fabulous place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

The house was very well equipped, clean, and comfortable. The kitchen was spacious and fully equipped and the laundry machines were excellent. The kids loved the bunk beds. The pool was a huge success with children and adults. The garden shed contained loads of equipment for pool, beach and sea and even had a kiddy cart. The surf kayaks were great fun but need a vehicle big enough to take them to the launch point at Kailua beach. Kailua and Lanikai beaches are an easy walk and we saw green sea turtles while snorkelling at Lanikai. There was off street parking for vehicles. Highly recommended!

Beautiful 'Hale Nalu Palekaiko' Vacation Home.

  • 5 of 5

This property is head and shoulders above any location in Kailua. The home is perfectly designed for large families. There were 10 of us and we still had lots of room to enjoy what we wanted to do without getting in each other's way. The pool, yard, and the lanai areas are excellent gathering places for the family. The pool has recently been upgraded with new tile work and is beautiful. I can't say enough about all the conveniences available throughout the home. Thank you Kittie. The neighborhood is quiet during the evening hours which is nice for sleeping. Kailua Beach and Lanikai Beach are listed as two of the most beautiful beaches on the island of Oahu and are just minutes walk from the house. So pretty at sunrise. We loved this home so much we're making plans to return here again as soon as possible. If location, privacy, Hawaiian atmosphere, away from Waikiki's hustle and bustle are what you're looking for, this is for you. Thank you Kittie and thank you VRBO for putting this beautiful rental property on our radar. Aloha and Mahalo Kittie.

By far, our best Hawaiian vacation ever !!

  • 5 of 5

We have travelled to Oahu 4 times in the past 8 years - staying in Kailua the last 3 visits. Without a doubt, this house was our most favourite place to stay. Everything was perfect from the start with Kittie being very responsive to our initial inquiry, all of the detailed pre-trip information that was provided thru the Home Away app, the follow-up phone call to ensure we were all settled in at the house and the end of trip mahalo call.

There were three separate groups in our party with a total of 6 adults, 3 kids and a 4 month old baby. The cottage was perfect for the new parents and their baby, since no one was able to hear him if he cried at night and the parents could have their privacy from the rest of the group. The kids loved the bunk bed room and the two remaining bedrooms were very comfortable and spacious with ceiling fans and AC units.

The backyard and pool at this property was amazing. Considering the house sits on a main roadway, there was very little noise when we relaxed inside or outside...and the backyard was very private with foliage and trees surrounding the property. We really enjoyed use of the BBQ for many of our suppers while we hosted other family members that were visiting Hawaii at the same time as us. During the night, our favourite time was having the pool light casting a blue glow in the background with the numerous tiki torches giving an ambient light while we relaxed in the lounge chairs enjoying a few drinks.

We really wanted to highlight the Hawaiian charm this house provides that we have not experienced in any of our other Hawaii house rentals. From the moment you walk into this house, you know you are in Hawaii - from the numerous local artwork and Aloha signs, to the pillows in each room to the surfboards decorating the walls. The layout of this house is perfect. It has a long, large countertop in the kitchen that is extremely important when trying to organize and prepare food for a group of 10. There is a very large fridge with freezer drawer underneath that we made full use of when shopping at the nearby Target.

The location of this house was ideal. We could walk 5 minutes down the street in the morning to the Kalapawai Market for morning coffee and to watch the sunrise at Kailua Beach or to visit Island Snow for their amazing shaved ice...OR, we could walk 10 minutes into town for the night market on Thursday nights (yummy fried green tomatoes).

We would highly recommend this property!!

The perfect place to stay for a family or families!

  • 5 of 5

We could not have asked for a better house to stay at during our first trip to Hawaii. We had two families, both with one small child, and had plenty of room. The separation of rooms was very nice as we were able to keep the kids separated for bedtime so that they could sleep quietly without waking one another. The pack n play crib was amazing for the younger child! All three rooms have AC which as far as I know is rare for a "standard" hawaiian home. We were able to keep the entire house cool and comfortable since it was humid. Town was a minute or two drive. There was a Target, Safeway, plenty of places to eat, and shop. The beach was also a short walk or drive. PLENTY of parking for the beach. Kittie called when we arrived to give us some additional details, recommendations, and also check on us. She has called again the day we were leaving. She was exceptionally kind and it was nice to have her reach out to us both times. We felt we could call or text if we needed anything. Thank you Kittie for opening your wonderful home to us! We had a blast and will be back!
