Overview

About the property

House, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

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.

Pefect Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

This unit is the perfect spot to stay in Kailua. We traveled as a couple having been to Kailua mutiple previous times. This unit perfectly fit the bill for what we are looking for: It is on the beach side of Kalaheo (~15 steps from property gate to beach path gate), it is within a block of the market for morning coffee and an easy drive into town. It also had the best kitchen of any unit we've ever rented in Kailua including a full size refrigerator, full oven/stove, garbage disposal and dishwasher. Inside there is a separate sitting area from the bed and a nice size hd tv is provided. Outside there is a nice sitting area to the back of the unit and the privacy is good with the owners house & the neighbors. Beach chairs and beach towels are provided by the owners.

The only downside is the lack of A/C. While we were there the tradewinds were calm a couple days and the house got a little stuffy. Plenty of fans are provided though.

To top it off, the owners were both very nice and a pleasure to meet and speak briefly with.

A true gem. If it's available next time we come we wouldn't hesitate to book this again.

Wonderful Location!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Amazing place!

  • 5 of 5

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.
