About the property

Studio, Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)

Aloha! Welcome to Kailua Beach and Kekailoa Cottage.

The cottage is just 100 yards from the Kailua Beach accessed by our private beach path. The lot is the first lot from ocean front. You can smell the salt air and hear the awesome sounds of ocean surf. Enjoy swimming, bodyboarding, walking or just plain relaxing in an area of the beach less traveled by most. All these features offers a unique 'get-away' from the urban bustle.

The cottage has hardwood floors, new bedframe and headboard, two sitting chairs with ottomans and a sofa chair covertible to a futon. Other amenities include dressers, lamps, and an energy efficient ceiling fan. The roof has been coated with white acrylic covering reflecting 90% of the suns heat energy. This new covering has performed wonderfully, keeping the cottage inside cool.

We just added a new very high speed router. A Netgear Nighthawk AD7200 smart wireless router has replace the cable company supplied hardware. This ultra high speed system allows higher speeds with less errors. There has been flawless connection download speeds of about 100mbs in the cottage. This more than ample for our visitors. Upload is the usual standard 25 mbs.

Our online calendar is maintained update-to-date. Please check the calendar for availability. Expect a timely response to inquires for requested days shown open on the calendar.

This fully furnished beach studio exceeds all expectations from our visitors. Enjoy beautiful sunny days or tranquil nights on a courtyard lanai surrounded by tropical vegetation. Courtyard has table, umbrella, four chairs and two lounging chairs.

The cottage is close to interstate freeway and roads leading to Honolulu, the airport, and Kaneohe.

The cottage is a detached studio having a separate entrance to the second floor accommodation. 500 square feet of living space sits on a large 13,300 square foot, secure, fenced lot. There is a large opene yard for private sunbathing or just relaxing. A queen-size bed is perfect for a couple. Private bathroom with shower on same level (picture of bath is coming soon). Air conditioning and ceiling fan cools the entire cottage both day and night. Kitchenette has full size refrigerator, many appliances and bar-top counter with bar stools.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

This is our third time staying at this property. This time we had our 10 year old grandson with us. It was perfect for going down to the beach several times a day. It's just a short pathway to the beautiful beach. They have beach chairs, toys and boogie boards to use. There is an outdoor shower to rinse off the sand when returning. The property has a huge yard, which the owners encouraged us to use. Tam got out all kinds of sports equipment for our grandson to use - frisbee, football, basketball, whiffle ball. She even invited us to color Easter eggs with her family. We had a great stay, although the week seemed to go by too quickly.

Owner's Response: We always like return visitors! Thank you for the very nice review. We loved having you back and your grandson. Our property is kid friendly! There are many fun activities to do around the property to keep kids occupied. As a side benefit, being outside gives everyone a break from the internet world and 'screen time'. Please consider Kekailoa Cottage for your next vacation. Aloha, Rick

Wonderful place to stay in Kailua

  • 5 of 5

Location is ideal. Hosts are kind and follow your lead on interaction vs. privacy. The only thing I’d recommend is a clothesline to dry swimsuits and towels.

Relaxing oasis nestled in the treetops

  • 5 of 5

Thanks for allowing us to stay in your nice place. Our 5 year old son hated to leave and felt right at home. We enjoyed all the birds chirping at sunrise. The cool breezes in the windows and easy walk to the beach.

As good as advertised

  • 4 of 5

This above garage studio unit was comfortable and convenient, with all that we needed for our stay. Only negative for us was the bed - too soft for our liking, but not too bad.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review. Wish we had known while you were here about the mattress. The queen size mattress has a removal pillow top. During the stay of previous visitors, it was mentioned the mattress was too firm for their back condition. So a pillow top was added. This cushy top layer can be easily removed. We always ask our visitors to let us know how we can make their stay more enjoyable. Since different people have different desires, we always make an effort to ask how it is going throughout your visit, especially after the first night. All concerns are promptly handled and for the most part are easily rectified. As in this case, if had known the mattress was too soft, the pillow top could have been removed. For future guests, please let us know of anything we can do to make your stay more enjoyable. Aloha.

Wonderful Apartment In Kailua

  • 5 of 5

Rick's apartment is a charming and roomy apartment that is perfect for a couple. It has been recently remodeled and everything is impeccably and tastefully finished. It's about a hundred yards from the beach which is accessed via a private path. Rick is a perfect host, always available and responsive to questions and any need that one might have. What can I say? Highly recommended.

Cute cottage close to a beautiful beach!

  • 4 of 5

Great location near a beautiful beach! The traffic noise might bother some but otherwise a great spot! Cottage was well stocked and access to a beautiful beach was quick and easy. Rick and Tam were wonderful hosts. 🤙

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review! There is a bit of traffic noise when emergency vehicles are on the run. Also, in the morning hours, sanitation trucks stopping to pick up refuse make noise. These are normally on Wednesdays and Saturdays. We regret there is not much we can about this inconvenience.
