Property description

Private entrance, private separate home with a clean and very quiet one bedroom cottage. We are minutes away from gorgeous Kailua beach and Kailua town. Please feel free to barbeque on the lanai while watching the paddler's, boaters, board surfers and more. Enjoy the sun and birds chirping in the morning on the lanai or in the evening with our beautiful moonrises. A kayak sail away to unbelievable gorgeous beaches. Lanikai, Kailua and Waimanalo.. Voted 'best' beaches in the world many times.
Please watch this beautiful video one of our dear tenants made for us. Clearly shows the beauty of this property.
We had the pleasure of Fran and his wife staying with us for over two plus months. They have returned often. Long time friendship is what we gained when we rented to them via VRBO.
Aloha and enjoy your stay in Hawaii. Wherever that shall be.
