About the property

Large 1BR-.5 mile from the beach-Full Kitchen-Quiet A/C in every room-Sleeps 4

This large 700 square foot rental unit called the 'Coconut Corner' is one of the nicest rentals you will find on the Windward side of Oahu — a king size bed, full split A/C in every room and HD TV's in both the bedroom and the living room, a fully upgraded kitchen with fridge, range/oven, mircohood & dishwasher plus a covered patio with a table and chairs with ceiling fans throughout, free parking right out front along with free laundry and WiFi—and it's all offered at a wonderfully affordable price. This large vacation rental is in a quiet residential neighborhood just a half-mile from the access to a beautiful sandy stretch of Kailua Beach. It is close to Kailua Town and a neighborhood shopping center with restaurants, hair/nail, liquor store, coffee shop, bank, gas station and a grocery store all within walking distance.

Kailua is a friendly town of about 38,000 located on the beautiful northeast shore of Oahu. I love Kailua for its many beaches and accessible off-shore islands. The beautiful two-mile stretch of sparkling Kailua Beach and adjoining Lanikai have been rated tops among America’s best beaches. Surf Shorebreak, kayak, swim with the green sea turtles, or sail to one of the secluded offshore islands and maybe spot the whales breech offshore. It does not get any better than this!

It is only a 25-minute scenic drive to the airport, Honolulu, and Waikiki. Nearby sites include Kailua Beach Park, Kailua Farmers Market, Lanikai Pillbox hike, Maunawili Falls, Sea Life Park, Sandy Beach, Waimanamo, Haunauma Bay, and the North Shore.

Kailua town offers many diverse restaurants and shopping locations. There are businesses that offer kayaks, kite surfing, and wind surfing lessons and rentals. There are wonderful hiking trails nearby and waterfalls. We also have a large 2 man kayak if you would like to use it.

Kailua offers a completely different atmosphere from the hustle and bustle of Waikiki. Many of our guests enjoy the laid back atmosphere, sense of community, and Aloha Spirit we all share. Also, enjoy making your own meals in the full kitchen, even firing up the stainless gas grill to cook up some special dinners.

This rental is smoke free and we ask that our smoking guests smoke outside only.

About Greg


I'm a husband, father, jack of all trades, coach of all sports and owner/manager of 5 vacation rentals in Hawaii. I was raised in Hawaii from the age of 8 years old after my family moved here from the USA mainland. Hawaii has so much to offer and I hope you get the chance to visit and explore this incredible island.

Greg purchased this house in 1998

Why Greg chose Kailua

My wife and I grew up in Kailua so we know it well. It's so close to the beach, restaurants and grocery stores. The small town feeling and tight community remind us of our younger growing up days. It was so great that we were able to own a home in the beautiful town that we grew up in.

What makes this house unique

The beach is beautiful with it's white sand, friendly people and mostly calm waters. Never really rough, even in the winter when the North Shore surf spots are reaching 25 feet - Kailua bay will stay nice and mellow. A perfect beach for swimming and boogie boarding. There is a small covered patio on the corner, next to the coconut trees, for meals or just for enjoying that morning coffee while watching joggers and dog walker going by.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This was a much needed vacation for our family, and we enjoyed every minute. I'm so glad we decided not to stay in Waikiki. Kailua and Coconut Corner was like home away from home for our boys. Being able to do laundry was a life saver! Thanks for the use of your boogie boards & beach equipment, big help!

P.S. The game cube was a big hit with the boys thanks!

True to description

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Coconut Corner for two weeks in February 2009. The other times we have been to Oahu we have stayed with family in the Kahala area. We have since had two more children and were looking for someplace for all five of us to stay. This was perfect. The description provided is right on. There were no surprises, Greg and Cindy were helpful and kind while providing privacy. Our children, ranging in age from 3 - 8, loved Zippy the cat and still talk about him now. One of the best things about staying in Kailua is that you are forced to explore the island! We took the Pali and/or H3/ Hwy 72 more often than when we stayed closer to Waikiki and never got tired of looking at the scenery. We had a great time, this was the perfect place to stay and introduce our children to Hawaii.

Quiet neighborhood stay at Coconut Corner

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed all the amenities of this quiet corner unit with its lovely new kitchen and beautiful plank flooring. Fairly close to the beaches and shops and restaurants in town and well equipped with cooler, beach chairs etc. Living room furniture could use some updating though as we found the couches a bit uncomfortable. Air conditioning was greatly appreciated as we were there during some stormy, humid weather.

Needs work

  • 3 of 5

While Greg was a gracious and accommodating host the unit needs a redo. The furniture was kind of shabby and the place needs to be upscaled. The mattress was too soft for us but that’s a personal preference. The bedroom light had no wall switch but was worked from a string hanging over the middle of the bed which was difficult to do when in bed. Overall, it was just adequate.

Owner's Response: Ouch - that shabby comment stings. I really don't want to sound defensive - I realize people have vastly different tastes in decor. But I just want to point out that quite a significant amount has been invested in this rental recently to completely re-do the kitchen, the flooring is new, the split air conditioning is new and after putting in AC, we needed to upgrade all the windows to hold that nice cold air in. And then after new windows - we had to have the house painted, of course. I'm not sure what kind of upscale amenities you might have missed or been looking for, but I do realize a vacation rental is a different experience from staying at a luxury hotel.

Nice quiet neighborhood on the west end of Kailua.

  • 4 of 5

Nice attached unit with room for family to visit.

A little farther from the beach than we thought, but will probably stay there again.

Owners on site and friendly and helpful.

Well appointed and excellent location

  • 5 of 5

We spent just about three months here. We found the unit to be clean, comfortable and very well appointed. Having the A/C was a huge plus, but when the trades were blowing the breeze through the unit was truly amazing. The unit is located in close proximity to the beach, the H-3, Marine Corps Base Hawaii and Kailua Town is only a mile + away. Cindy and Greg were wonderful hosts and were not the least bit invasive, but super friendly and helpful as needed. We look forward to coming back to Hawaii in the future and hope to rent this unit again as it met all of our needs and exceeded all of our expectations.
