Steps to Kailua Beach Licensed(90 Tvu 0060). 2 BR Beachside

Bedrooms 2
Property type house
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Blossoms, palms, and tikis await you as you enter the one-fourth acre, tropical paradise tucked away beach side on a private lane.

This impressive, liscenced rental, two-story custom home is beautifully designed with a two bedroom separate entrance rental unit with air-conditioned living and lanai area. Surrounded by exotic tropical gardens, you are just steps, just 75 yards, to Kailua's most beautiful white, sandy beach and sparkling blue waters.

Kailua is a small town located on the beautiful northeast shore of Oahu. It is loved for its many beaches and accessible off-shore islands. It is only a 25-minute scenic drive to the airport, Honolulu, and Waikiki. Nearby sites include Sea Life Park, The Blow Hole, Haunauma Bay, and the North Shore.

The beautiful, 3 mile stretch of sparkling Kailua Beach and adjoining Lanikai Beach have been rated tops among America’s best beaches. Swim with the green sea turtles. Kayak or sail to one of the secluded offshore islands to enjoy shelling while you watch the whales breech offshore.

Relax in the shade of a swaying palm tree, swim in turquoise blue Pacific waters, or walk for miles and miles on the spectacular sandy beach. The only thing not to be found here is the crowds of Waikiki.

Perfect location, stellar rental, incredible hosts

  • 5 of 5

Sitting on the plane watching sadly as the islands disappear in the distance, I'm struggling to find words to describe what an incredible place this is. This may be a "vacation rental," but it's really a top-shelf apartment on the best beach in Hawaii (an extremely short walk down a sandy trail) with absolutely everything you could want. Sure, Kailua was great, and the weather was lovely, but this rental was a huge part of what made our stay so incredible.

This place is peaceful, decadent luxury right on the beach, perfect for a family or romantic getaway. The home would easily accommodate 5-6 & has two large bedrooms and a nice living area, plus a dining nook that we enjoyed very much. To be honest, someone put in an awful lot of time, care and effort to make every detail nice, from the decor to the entertainment to the furniture. I felt bad that we couldn't take advantage of everything they left for us, but that would take months. If only we could!

The two king beds are high-quality and comfortable. The pull-out bed is nice, and perfect for kids. The kitchen has everything you could want and the house is stocked with a full range of supplies. There are modern, full-size washer/dryer (a must!) and both bathrooms are spacious & clean. We could have stayed here for 2 months and never needed anything from the owners. It's quiet in the evenings (something that can be a problem in other places) and intoxicatingly peaceful in the early hours. You can walk 40 yards and watch the sunrise over the water at 5:45am. They provide towels, gear for the beach, including an umbrella, boogie/body boards, and more. There's an outdoor shower outside but also a very nice indoor shower downstairs in the full bath (1 of 2).

And the deck. I wanted to spend all day on it, listening to the surf. You have a glimpse of the ocean & you can clearly hear the surf any time of day. There's a gas grill for cooking outside. The palm trees overhead and the trade winds make the deck the most peaceful, gorgeous place imaginable. In the early mornings, and late afternoon, when there's no direct sun, it's sublime.

Overall, I can't say enough about this place and the hosts. I struggle to think of anything that wasn't perfect or that needed work. If I could live here, I would stay in a heartbeat. Our family had such a wonderful time and we liked this place so much that we would schedule travel dates around its availability.

Mahalo, Russell and Diana!

We enjoyed both units and found the accommodations comfortable and home like.

The hosts were friendly & available and provided immediate assistance for a small maintenance issue.

A lovely getaway.

fabulous beach location

  • 5 of 5

This is a cozy niche with comfortable beds next to my favorite beach in the world. I walk the length at dawn daily, and swim out far enough to see the dramatic mountains unobscured by palm trees. The kitchen/dining area is like that on a large sailboat, and the decor is Hawaiian to the max. Diana is always helpful if called on.

Practically at Kailua Beach; AC works well, clean and efficient. Washer / dryer means you can pack less clothes. Cable and Wifi; Safeway and K-Town very close. Lanikai down the road. We will be back!!
