Great stay

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay. Very private and located in convenient part of town. Lived up to the pictures and description. Very thoughtfully provisioned and decorated. Many extra nice touches. The AC was especially appreciated. I would definitely stay there again and highly recommend it for a lovely Hawaiian vacation!

Perfect beachside retreat

  • 5 of 5

This immaculately clean, safe, quiet apartment was perfectly located for daily treks to the beach and enjoying simple local amenities like the nearby market or steak house. Kailua Beach Park is visible, and only a short walk (a few minutes), from the back gate making it possible to enjoy coffee and the sunrise before breakfast, or a short sunset walk before dinner. The layout of the apartment -- two bedrooms separated by the living area - offered privacy for our group of friends traveling together. All the basic necessities for cooking and making a vacation "home" were available. Hosts Kara and Tom were present and responsive, but not intrusive. I would absolutely return to this property and highly recommend it for those seeking a comfortable and affordable beachside location.

Location, location, location.

  • 5 of 5

This apartment's back gate is about a block from one of the best beaches in the U.S. (Kailua Beach), and a 20-minute walk from another of America's best beaches (Lanikai Beach). It's about a 2-minute walk from a small market, a very good restaurant, kayak/board rentals, shave ice and more, and a brief bike ride (in bike lanes, on bikes provided by the landlord) from downtown Kailua. And it's a 30-minute drive from Waikiki and an easy drive away from the North Shore. The unit is a great base for not only enjoying Kailua and it's surrounds, but also exploring the island.

The owners, who live above the apartment, were remarkably responsive via email, phone and text message, both before and during our stay. Though we didn't have any emergencies, it was good to know they were paying attention, and their answers to our questions about restaurants, boards, etc., were very helpful.

The apartment is spacious, private, clean, quiet, comfortable and well-equipped. The beds are great, and there are plenty of towels and pillows, as well as the necessary small and large appliances. My adult daughter and I had everything we needed (except for a few minor items that I'll mention to the owners).

I'd rent this apartment again in a heartbeat. I hope to return with my husband next time.

Prime location, wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a relaxing two month stay. We were 4 adults staying in the home and never once felt as if we were on top of each other. The kitchen is huge with full size refrigerator, stove and washer and dryer. Having your own washer and dryer was a plus. We used the grill most nights and found the kitchen equipped with everything we needed to make gourmet meals.

The A/C units in the bedrooms work well although we did not use them much as the weather was perfect. Lots of closet and drawer space. The bathroom is quite large and there were plenty of towels and wash cloths as well as nice large beach towels.

Location is everything and this home will not disappoint. You walk out the back gate and are about 150 feet away from Kailua Beach Park. Beautiful Lanikai Beach is nearby as well as Lanikai Pillbox Hike. Kailua has great farmers markets on Thursday and Sunday. The fresh produce and flowers are amazing.

Can't thank the owners enough for sharing this home with us. We found them to be extremely friendly and available if we had questions or needed anything. We are already talking about the next time we visit Kailua and would definitely stay here again.

Close to beach

  • 4 of 5

This place is big! The kitchen is full size as is the bathroom. There is a back gate exit and only one property to beach! Close to deli/market and beach toy rental. The beds are awesome as are the bed linens - can tell the owners picked out quality in this area.

Pros - parking, close to beach, near by deli, air in rooms, lots of fans, Internet, beach towels, close to town, nice owners who answered promptly, beach chairs, washer and dryer, patio furniture with grill, lovely plumeria trees wish we had seen more blooms but wasn't time of year, close to Macy's (haha), easy to access and one level which is plus for older people (we travel with my mom), large unit

Suggestions for refinements -

Maybe add another type of seat in living room. Circle chair hard to maneuver especially if you are older. Maybe pay a little attention to providing some essentials in bathroom and for laundry.

Thank you your hospitality

Close, Clean and Comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

If you haven't stayed in Kailua you are missing out and if you get to go stay here. The location for this guest home is right across from Kailua beach park - you walk out the back path and there you are. You have 2 rooms, a large kitchen, dining room, washer/dryer, and nice size patio. As it is connected to the larger home you occasionally hear folks but it is generally a very quiet and safe place. The value for the location is wonderful. Walk to Bob's pizza, the Market for a coffee, or Island Snow Shave Ice - our favorites :-) The owners will honor your privacy but also are so open to chatting if you want to ask for advice or directions. Our family of 4 enjoyed the beaches especially snorkeling in Lanikai (our favorite), hiking, and just beautiful mountain views of this area of Oahu. But if it is windy or rainy - remember it is never a long drive to another lovely beach or to Pearl Harbor (recommended). Thank you to our lovely hosts for sharing this clean and comfy home. I hope we never bothered you with our evening gecko hunting! We left our beach-dreaming hearts in Kailua - so if we come back we hope to stay here again!
