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.

Property was clean and spacious for two adults plus our 17 month old. Rick and Tam were so friendly and loved having our child running and playing in the large gated yard. Short walk to the beach was great. Window A/C unit was wonderful surprise to have and use. Bed was comfy and small kitchen space was enough for us! Easy walking into town, which was awesome. Would highly recommend!!!!!
The cottage was Hawaiian themed and very comfortable & clean. It has everything you need! You get a wonderful breeze and can hear the ocean waves in the distance. A parrot occasionally flies by to say hello. The neighborhood is upscale and it is a short 50 yard walk to the beach down a neighborhood path. The beach exceeded all expectations, it was clean with white sand and you can take long walks in either direction. There is a small market close by that has great coffee and sandwiches. Kailua is a really cute beach town and was the perfect destination spot. The owners, Rick and Tam, were extremely nice and gave us great tips on places to visit. Overall - excellent!
We enjoyed our stay at the cottage. Great location with just a quick walk down the path to the beach. The cottage was super clean and we loved the casual Hawaiian décor and vibe. We had everything we needed there. It was nice to have the off street parking as well. The location was close to the little market down the street and several restaurants nearby. We enjoyed meeting Rick and Tam and they were great resources for things to do and see.
We enjoyed the Kekailoa Cottage very much and found the description of the posting to be accurate. The property was very clean and quite well maintained; there were plenty of towels, including beach towels; the washer and dryer are located in the unit and were good quality; and the bed was very comfortable; the coffee maker worker perfectly (very important).
The area, just north of Hanalei, is remote and towards the end of the road; there is a coffee shop and restaurant within walking distance, but we bought groceries and coffee in Kapa'a, and the two major grocery stores in Hanalei (one being a health food store). One surprise hit was Sushi Girl (about 1.5 miles south), just a small take out with wonderful rolls, but the sushi burrito was the kicker.
The proximity to the ocean (and the relative isolation) was the selling point for me; while you're not ocean front (although you definitely hear the ocean at night), the walk is only about two minutes away down a beach path a couple house down the road. At this point you're and at a beautiful beach with practically no one around, but also just a short walk down the beach to Tunnels Beach (the safer for swimming in my opinion) and a little further to Ha'ena Beach Park with some grassy areas to relax and spend the day.
There is a larger house on the property, but it didn't seem to affect our solitude. The owner was very responsive during the booking and check in process, but we had no reason to contact them during our stay.
I would definitely recommend this place to others who are seeking peace and quiet; and north shore beech access without the crowds. I hope to be back next year.
Rick and Tam were great hosts and very friendly. When we arrived Rick met us out front and showed us around the property and answered any questions we had, we spoke a few times with both Rick & Tam during our stay, they always showed genuine concern that we were happy with the rental. Unfortunately, we were so busy during our stay that we weren't able to spend as much time visiting as we would have liked.
The cottage was stocked with plenty of towels and was very clean and as described in the listing. The kitchenette was nice to have to be able to have our own groceries and avoid having to eat out so much. The bed was comfortable and our 10 year old son slept comfortable on the futon. Some beach toys, boogie boards and beach chairs were available to use as we needed. You may be able to snap some pictures of the macaws that live nearby. The main house has an outside shower (with both hot & cold) which can be used to rinse any sand off when returning from the beach. The house & cottage are located in a secure, gated yard. We were able to park our rental car and not worry about anything happening to it.
The highlight of the property for us was the close proximity to the beach, with a 2 minute walk it made it very easy to walk down for an hour or two. The beach was never overly busy, it seemed to be mainly people walking their dogs, or other small families relaxing. Nothing like the busy beaches at the resorts. The water was fairly calm, enough small waves that our son could have fun on his boogie board, but calm enough that you could wade around in the water if you like.
The restaurants in town get quite busy on the weekend, if you are planning on going out to eat you may want to head out early or make a reservation. During the week was not an issue however.
We would stay here again without hesitation and would recommend it to anyone looking for a rental in Oahu.
We just returned home from a twelve night stay at Kekailoa Cottage. The property was perfect for my husband and me. The location is unbeatable with easy and close access to a beautiful beach. My son, who lives on Oahu, was amazed at our proximity to one of Oahu's best beaches. The cottage was very comfortable and clean. The kitchenette is tiny, but it worked for us. Tam was very friendly and made us feel welcome. We felt like we were among friends, but we were given space and privacy. We really appreciated the use of beach chairs, towels, boogie boards and an ice chest. It was an easy drive to explore the rest of the island and we certainly did. I highly recommend this property. Four stars on property rating were for lack of a stove (I think that's due to local law and a hot plate and grill were provided) and a small shower. I would definitely stay again and have already referred it to a friend.
