The address is 34 Puukani Pl. Kailua, HI.
A private setting in a detached home on a wonderful street!
To answer the most common question, yes, we are 'steps' away: 80 medium sized steps for me! The beach is down a sandy path and is a one of the world's best. We are located near the beach park in Kailua.
The unit is a freestanding, not connected to the main home. It has its own entrance from the street. It is not a room in a home and we do not serve breakfast (sorry) but you get privacy!
The main part of the house is an 'L' shaped room with the kitchen at one end and a queen-size bed at the other. The middle of the ‘L’ has a sofa and chair. The separate bedroom has two twin beds. The kitchen and bath were remodeled in the fall of 2014 and look great! There kitchen is equipped with anything you need for cooking. There is a phone and TV with VCR/DVD and a wireless internet connection. The inside is very nice. There is parking for one car on the street. There are more pictures at our stepstobeachdotcom site.
There are two vendors within walking distance for windsurfing equipment. One is Naish Hawaii: Please ask us for their phone number. They have equipment on the beach. Kailua Sailboards and Kayaks rents kayaks and bikes as well: Please ask us for their phone number. There are plenty of good restaurants in Kailua we can tell you about when you are here.
No Smoking in the guesthouse or on the premises please.
We had a wonderful week here. Great for our family of 4. Beautiful beach, small coffee shop/store nearby for breakfast. House was very clean and bigger than it looks in the photos. If we came back to Hawaii we would definitely check if it was free. Hope to see you in Italy with your bike!
Grab a coffee and walk right out to the beach to watch the sunrise. We loved staying here and will definitely return in the future. Close to beach, coffee shop, shave ice, kayak rentals, etc. Fell in love with the location.
Only issue was no air conditioning, but there were fans that helped a bit with the heat.
This is the Best possible vacation rental; private but near everything, immaculate and cheerful, tastefully decorated, couldn't ask for anything better:) Just hope it's available next time we need it!
We stayed in this rental for a week at the beginning of the year, and it was perfect for our family. The location is ideal - we could walk to the beach in less than a minute, it's an easy walk to Kailua town, and a quick drive to the other places we planned to go. The guesthouse was clean and had all the amenities we needed. The owners were friendly and welcoming (in hindsight, I think our kids played soccer together at some point many years ago!). We had a great visit, and would definitely stay again on our next trip!
My husband, our 5 year old and 7 year old boys and my mother in law stayed for two weeks in August and this place truly became like home. It is very spacious, with the full kitchen and plenty of space and the proximity to the beach was perfect. We would go to the beach every day and it was nice to be so close to the guesthouse and run back to use the bathroom or grab a cold drink. Mark and Lisa were very friendly and never bothered us, but were right there if we needed them. My only complaints were that it was kinda hot in the cottage for our stay and it would be nice to see the place decorated a little cuter and with an actual living room area. It's such a cute place and I think it would be a lot of fun to decorate and add some color! But overall, we absolutely loved our stay and we can't wait to go back! Perfect for a family!
Our trip to Kailua was nothing but fantastic, and we would stay at the guesthouse just steps from the beach again in a heartbeat! It was perfect for our family, and we enjoyed the beautiful beaches in Kailua and nearby Lanikai, which was a very short drive. Mark and Lisa were very accommodating, letting us use their bbq grill for our stay. It was very peaceful and quiet in the area, which made it feel truly more relaxing. Thank you again, Mark and Lisa! Look forward to returning!
