Best family vacation ever!
Best family vacation ever!
We loved everything about our stay here. The location was amazing, the place was super clean, it was quiet and secluded. You're in Hawaii to be outside, not live indoors so don't get caught up on the size. The place has everything you need and perfect amount of space and you don't feel cramped or closed in at all. We had an amazing time and John was a perfect host. We will definitely be back.

A well-maintained, clean and conveniently-located home away from home. Steps from a beach that will blow your socks off, this rental is a terrific getaway. John was incredibly attentive, available and hospitable, helping to provide a crib when one we needed one, boogies boards, sand toys, and towels. Also great with suggestions for things to do and things to avoid. We will be back.

The BEST vrbo experience we have had yet! Myself, my husband, and our 4 year old spent a few days at this wonderful property. The unit was spotless and smartly decorated and included every convenience one could ask for. Above all the location was superb and the owner, John, was so gracious and personable. The beach is but a few steps away and was absolutely gorgeous. It was also the perfect beach for little ones with powder soft sand and gentle waves. We would definitely recommend a stay here and hope to return very soon.

Great stay, clean home, nice patio

The host John made our stay lovely, always there when you need him but also very private for us. Apartment is in great condition and was perfect for us (2 adults and 2 children 1 & 3 years), especially the patio with the grill. The walk to the beach is really just 2 Min and it is a perfect part of the beach, not crowded at all. I just can encourage everybody to stay there, you won't regret it...we will definitely come back when visiting Hawaii again.

My friend and I stayed at Laiki Lounge for two weeks and were extremely pleased. (I went to UH for two years and long ago realized how preferable Kailua is to Waikiki.) John was very helpful in offering to meet my early plane, and he carefully reviewed all the workings of the apartment. My only disappointment was not having the previously mentioned bicycles available, but I'd been told that that might be the case. (They would have been an asset for going to town for breakfast and dinner. Renters should know that most Kailua town streets have greedy parking meters.) Otherwise, everything was absolutely terrific. The location of the apartment is outstanding--in a lovely neighborhood and not more than a three minute walk to the water. We especially loved the ease of going out at 6 am to view the sunrise which was stunning and uniquely different each day. It was great fun to join the locals and their dogs exercising beside the water every morning. The other thing we really appreciated was how wonderfully quiet the apartment was--the only sounds being the birds and the breeze in the adjacent palm trees. The space was very comfortable, with all the necessary amenities. (Thank you, again, John, for going out immediately to buy a rubber tub mat when we found we were slipping in the shower.) We loved having a full-size refrigerator to hold dinner left-overs, fresh fruit, tropical juice, and breakfast treats from Agnes' Portuguese Bake Shop. (Speaking of food, two other places we loved and went more than once were Dean's Drive-in for yummy plate lunches/dinners in Kaneohe and Uncle Clay's House of Pure Aloha for amazing shave ice in Aina Haina.) Laiki Lounge had wonderfully easy access to all other parts of the island. Besides the usual activities, we'd recommend visiting the Hawaii Plantation Museum, taking the farm tour at Tropical Farms north of Kahaluu (it includes fire dancing!), hiking up Diamond Head (early!), attending the huge farmers' market at Kapiolani Community College, and stopping to see the turtles at Laniakea Beach after having an astounding lunch of peeled and parmesaned garlic shrimp at Ted's Bakery in Sunset Beach. No matter how many times I return to Hawaii, it is always very special, and Laiki Lounge certainly helped to make this trip a fantastic one.

Owner response: Aloha Jean, Thank you very much for the honest review and tips for future guests. Sorry for the disappointment with the bikes. Too much Liability and upkeep. Past guests have rented bikes from kailuasailboards.com They will drop off and deliver if you rent them for a week.
This is the best place to stay in Kailua! Our family had an amazing 7 day vacation in this immaculately clean home. Steps away from a beautifully pristine residential beach and with everything you need for the beach right there (boogie boards, chairs, beach towels, even an outdoor shower!) John is a very gracious host, always available with suggestions of places to go, restaurants, etc... The location is ideal: far away from tourists and crowds. Home is very well-maintained and exactly as advertised/pictured; very comfortable for a family of 4. We hope to return soon! Mahalo!

Aloha John - Just wanted to drop you a quick thank you note. Your rental unit was perfect for our family of 3, and your hospitality and local recommendations were very much appreciated. Everything about our 7 days in Kailua was just perfect and we look forward to staying at your place again next time we make it to Oahu.

Aloha John, We enjoyed our stay in your vacation home so much, it was definitely hard to leave. LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION. Safe and friendly neighborhood, far enough away from all those pesky tourist. private beach, white sands, warm water and with al the beach toys included umbrella, chairs, towels, boogie boards. We even saw a turtle in the water at Kailua beach on our last day. Views of Molokai and Lanai from the beach, Im ready to book another week just remembering all the fun we had. Rental accommodations were perfect, just the right size for us and our 2 teens. Everything was just as described, very clean, new and very well constructed. We had a fantastic time and you were the greatest host. Very friendly, relaxed and loving life. Mahalo John - until we meet again

Owner response: Thank you Guys! Its always a real treat to see guests enjoy Hawaii and take advantage of all it has to offer. Your family certainly did!. Laura and I try hard to provide what we advertise, A Clean detailed modern home with everything you need to enjoy yourself at the beach. Thanks for Noticing. Love to see the family on the island again someday. I have a feeling we will :)
We had such a great vacation using this rental! Myself, my wife and two friends were in Kailua for a wedding and had a difficult time finding a rental that fit our needs. We could not have been more pleased with our accommodations! The unit itself was the perfect size for the four of us and was newly renovated and extremely clean. The location cannot be beat! Being steps from the beach was so convenient and out of all the beaches we visited on the island, we preferred to be on the beach right in front of the house. The views are spectacular and with a private, locked gate for beach access, it was fairly secluded towards this end of the beach. We were thrilled that the rental had everything we needed for the beach- we didn’t have to purchase a thing! Beach towels, great beach chairs, a large cooler, umbrella, etc. we all fabulous to have. We loved the outdoor entertaining area as well- perfect for grilling and eating dinner after a long day in the sun. The owner, John, lives on the property and was amazing! Such a great resource for local eats, recommendations for great views and some other must sees on the island. We really enjoyed having him there and he was extremely helpful and gracious. We really can’t say enough great things about this place- we’ll definitely be back and so will our friends. Everyone who saw our rental was very impressed and interested in staying there next time they’re in town.

Owner response: Thank you David, we're glad you enjoyed our home. We hope to see you back again next year. Laura and John
Many VRBO properties in Kailua advertise locations on the beach; but if you read the fine print you may find that "walking distance" actually means walking several blocks along a busy road to one of several public access lanes. Not so, at this great little apartment. Out the door, 40 or so steps down a private lane, and there you are on one of the most beautiful beaches on the planet! The location alone would be enough to recommend this property, but it is also quiet, super clean, attractively decorated, and well equipped. John is the perfect host; knowledgable, available, and helpful, but not intrusive.
