                I stayed in this B&B and the owner came in and attached ties to the 20 pound flat screen tv (which we enjoyed) when I asked what he was doing he stated that a previous review had had some good recommendations and he was making sure that the TV’s were 100% safe (although how they weren’t previously I am unsure.) Being curious I looked up the review and was dumbfounded and felt compelled to post my own review. First the B&B and location are excellent. Second it was impeccably clean for my stay. Third I think the renter who posted the “poor” review was extremely unfair. Since the owner has cheerfully attended to the TV’s, the door mats and the sliding glass doors I only need to comment on the laundry and the dogs. The washer and dryer that the owner makes available at NO CHARGE to his guests are very high quality "top of the line" LG appliances on platforms – nicer than what I have at home here in Atlanta. We found both the washer and dryer to be in absolute clean condition for our use. It was a nice extra to be able to do my laundry at the home rather than a Laundromat as I had had to us on previous stays in Kailua. The dogs are among the most well trained and wonderful dogs I have ever been around. They are kept totally separate from the bed and breakfast and we asked to meet them, as I am a dog person, the owner took us to the backyard to play with them. They behave and actually played very well with my 15 month old granddaughter. I wouldn’t have any qualms at all about children being around the dogs.If you aren’t “dog people” don’t worry – there’s absolutely no need for any interaction with the dogs. M final opinion – you won’t find nicer or better located 2 bedroom with living room and kitchenette unit anywhere in Kailua for the price. Book this place – you’ll be glad you did. Mike S

                Had an outstanding stay at this rental property. Would rent this bungalo again in a heart beat. Had no problems what-so-ever. The rooms were clean, the beds were great,and the kitchen appliances were more then adequate. Both TV's were High Definition models with the cabability to receive more channels then you probably have at home (Note: If your there to watch tv you're missing the opportunity to see a beautiful island). The FREE use of the washer and dryer was a plus. I almost forgot to mention,with the finest beach on the island nearby (you could walk there if you wished), the free use of snorkeling equipment, a boogie board and even a surf board was also great. Leonard was always concerned about our well being and if requested, gave us an idea of where to eat and what to do in the area. The dogs were no problem as you rarely see or hear them. Mahalo Leonard for a most enjoyable vacation.

                Our family of four loved our stay at the Tradewind Bungalow. It provided all we needed for our near week long adventure. The location was perfect for us. And we enjoyed our peaceful walks to the beach every morning. Also enjoyed lunch at Kalapawai Market and dinner at Buzz's which are within walking distance. Kailua is our preferred location to stay on Oahu! Thanks Leonard for everything!

                I will write my review in my language to share my experience with Spanish-speakers tourists. Estuvimos durante una semana. El lugar es más amplio de lo que se ve en las fotos. Es una casa de huéspedes conectada con la casa de Leonard, el dueño de la propiedad. El es muy amable, servicial y nunca te molestará durante tu estadía. Fuimos seis personas (dos matrimonios con chicos) y Leonard nos proporcionó un segundo baño completo sin cargo para mayor comodidad. El vecindario es hermoso y super seguro. Estás muy cerca de la playa (una linda caminata de poco menos de 10 minutos) pero es conveniente contar con un auto. En la casa no vas a encontrar ningún lujo, pero la relación precio/calidad es excelente. Las TV son nuevas, el WIFI funciona perfectamente, tenía toallas y sillas para la playa, lavé y sequé mis ropas todos los días. Algunos detalles podrían mejorarse, pero en líneas generales todo está muy bien, sobre todo si piensas estar la mayor parte del tiempo en la playa. Los perros no molestaron para nada. Ladran un poco cuando salen a pasear (como cualquier perro) pero nada más que eso. No vas a tener ningún contacto con ellos ya que Leonard jamás los deja solos. En definitiva, todos disfrutamos de nuestras estadía en Tradewind Bungalow. La pasamos muy bien. Mahalo!

                I find Tradewind bungalow is not being kept safe, clean and updated to provide positive experience for its guests. - The floor mat at the extrance is so old and dingy that I avoid touching my feet on it when I enter the front door. - The big screen tv are simply left standing on tall shelving which could be tipped over by any capable toddler. - glass sliding door is cracked and broken and masking tape and paint was used to "repair" it. It is a hazard to my toddler. - the owner has 5 Rottweilers kept in two seperate cages. they growl and bark viciously at each other and at us when we return from the beach. I can't believe previous reviewer said the dogs are cuddly, that was back in 2012, with 4 dogs. - finally my biggest complaints is that the property owner uses the same washer and dryer to washes guest sheet, bedding and towels as the dog's bedding. It's only after did my load of laundry and I saw bunches and bunches of black dog hair stuck to the washer door that made me realize we have been using sheets and towels that's been washed with dog beddings. It is simply unacceptable and unhigenic and disgusting to anyone.

                Owner response: Thank you for the opportunity to respond to this review. As a vacation rental owner I take all feedback extremely seriously especially if it is negative. My goal is to ensure that your stay with us is as memorable as possible. With the last year, I replaced quality but older LCD TV's with the new Samsung High Definition LED's and HD boxes. I also replaced our existing front loading washer and dryer with top of the line LG units with full electronic controls costing over $5,500 altogether. I allow my guests use of these appliances. Many of my competitors do not allow their guests to use their washer and dryer and instead refer them to the closest laundromat. I never have had any comments before regarding the front door mat. Nevertheless, it was replaced immediately. I do have two 42 inch flat screen LED Samsung TV's. The TV in the main room is on a 4 foot high quality TV stand and is glued to the stand. An adult cannot dislodge it. The other in the bedroom is on a five foot high chest of drawers. A "capable toddler" would not be able to reach either TV much less tip them over. Having said that I have secured safety straps to both TVs. The sliding glass door does have a crack in it. I have a new glass door on order and it should be in place within a month. I do have five Rottweilers. They are all top quality AKC Champion and Grand Champion dogs. If they were truly vicious, they would not be allowed to participate in any AKC show. If they have a fault, it is that they are friendly beyond belief. Many of my guests ask to take pictures of the dogs. They are on my top deck from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM after which they are secured at the back of the property in overnight kennels. My dogs are kept in secure areas 24 hours a day and are never allowed to roam loose and intermingle with any people including my vacation rental guests. While it is possible that they growled at each other, they have never growled at a person ever. The guests did have a valid complaint about the dog hair in the washer. I did wash a dog blanket that evening using the "Hot Sanitary Cycle with Clorox." The guests arrived at 9:30 PM and immediately started using the washer even though my posted hours are from 7:00 AM to 7;00 PM. I had forgotten to clean the front door gasket of the washer and for this I apologize. I now check the washer daily for lint and debris as the gaskets in front loading washers are especially susceptible to retaining lint and hair. Thank you

                We had a wonderful experience at this clean, spacious, and conveniently located house in the quiet beach town of Kailua. Leonard, the owner, is the perfect host, always willing to answer questions about the island and full of insider info, (like where to find the cheapest safe parking in Waikiki). The location is only 20 minutes away from Hanauma Bay, Diamond Head, the hustle of Waikiki and Honolulu, but is in the quiet and lovely windward side retreat of Kailua, allowing you to feel truly "away from it all". Having stayed in Waikiki on a previous visit to the island, I found this to be a much nicer option for our family's week long visit to the island. Our boys were able to enjoy swimming and body surfing every day on a secluded strip of sandy shore near by, as well as explore tide pools and the amazing creatures in them. Great local options for dining are as little as 3 minutes away, including Maui tacos, K & K, The Food Company, and Teddy Burger, and with a kitchen in the rental picking up fresh fruit and local delicacies at the farmers market makes dining in a breeze. A top of the line washer and dryer are made available, and made keeping suits and towels clean and dry so easy. All in all, I would recommend this rental to any of my friends or family, and we fully plan on renting here again on our next trip to the island. By far, the nicest rental experience we have had. Mahalo, Leonard!

                What a great place! I was there a week, and it was very nice to be able to come and go without hearing lots of noises like you would in a hotel. The place you stay is not attached to the main residence so you have plenty of privacy. The bed was very comfortable, and the bathroom quite large. There is an AC in one bedroom but I didn't use it. Instead, I would open up the sliding glass door and let the wind cool me down. I wish I could do that at home, it was very relaxing! The living room is plenty big enough and the couch is nice to sit on. The kitchen has a full set of dishes and any kind of utensil you could want, including a pineapple cutter. The town of Kailua is the perfect place to be. It's close distance to almost everything without being in a busy, clustered city. Honolulu is only minutes away, and it's easy to drive up teh coast. I think it's the prime location to stay on the island. Leonard has 4 beautiful, friendly dogs that I just loved. I would have been happy to have them snuggle up on the bed with me! If you aren't a dog person, no worries; the dogs are kept inside a fence and you don't really see or hear them unless Leonard brings them out. Overall a great place to stay, and one I would stay at again. It truly felt like a home. The only thing missing was a tree with a coconut falling on my head! Thank you Leonard, for helping to make my trip quite memorable.

                Our family of four, including two teenage boys, recently returned from staying at the Tradewinds Bungalow. Everything was just as written on the website. The kitchen was new and well-stocked, the bedrooms comfortable, and everyhting was very clean. The beautiful beach was a short drive away, you could easily have walked. We enjoyed the beach equipment provided. Leonard was especially helpful and accomodating. In the town of Kailua, you'll find many new and recognizable stores and restaurants. If you want a small town, neighborhood experience, I would highly recomment the Tradewinds Bungalow.

                What a great find! Leonard's bungalow has everything you'll need for a relaxing and stress-free vacation. Yes, the kitchen is a bit small but its very functional. And no, its not overlooking the ocean. But for the rates Leonard charges, this was a great deal! Located in a lovely, safe neighborhood it is spotlessly clean and bigger than it looks. The bedrooms are very nice: new, comfortable queen beds with lovely bedding, 2 Flat Screen TVs with ALL the cable channels you'd ever want (great way to catch up on your favorite HBO and Showtime programs in the pm). And lot's of important amenities: beach towels, beach chairs, toys, and front load washer/dryer right outside your door with good old fashion clothes lines to hang up all the wet gear after a day on the beach (no dripping messes in the cottage). Its only a quick 10 min walk to Kailua Beach. We loved walking the entire beach from the north end all the way to the end of Lanakai. Leonard is a wonderful host: Friendly, helpful, accessable and professional. It was a pleasure doing business with him. Overall, a great stay. I recommend it highly!

                Despite rain, my vacation visiting my son and daughter-in-law was fantastic. Leonard was a very pleasant and accomodating host. The rental unit was clean and inviting. The lanai was perfect for relaxing and bbq. Can't wait to return but will chose a different time of year next time as I have encountered rain, hail, tornados and a tsumani on my last two visits to Oahu in 2011 and 2012. I hope I'm not the jinx.
