Property description

The Happy Kailua Beach House is located 1/2 block down from Kalama Beach Park a small, clean local beach park which has showers, restrooms, and a nice grassy area with picnic benches. The waves at the beach are as gentle as the soothing tradewinds, and the white sand is as soft as flour. You'll have no excuse not to make the three minute walk to the beach each day! We have chairs, mats, boogie boards, snorkeling equipment, buckets, shovels, and a large wheeled cooler to equip your visits to this wonderful beach area.

Ours is a newer home on Hauoli Street, a quiet street off Kalaheo Ave. It offers you a clean place to relax and unwind, barbeque on the lanai with family and friends, or just nap the day away... We have a portable crib and high chair for your little ones. As well, wireless internet access is provided for your laptop. Our home has hardwood floors throughout, a spacious main room and kitchen area, a master bedroom with private renovated full bathroom, two guest bedrooms with another full bathroom, and a lanai and yard out back. Downtown Kailua with its coffee houses, great restaurants, and shops is near enough to go by foot (fifteen minutes)or beach cruiser (three minutes). The hot malasadas at Agnes' Portugese Bakery are to DIE for.

Enjoy your stay in Paradise!

Car: Recommended

Visiting Kailua is unlike any other vacation to Hawaii you may have taken. There are no tall buildings, no throngs of people, no booze cruises. There is just a long, wonderful, white sand beach with no rocks, riptides, or reefs. At the Kalama Park, here at the center of the beach, the waves come in high enough to ride but break far enough out for little ones to play in the sand. There is a calm breeze from the northeast that keeps things from getting too hot, and showers and restrooms to keep you from having to go home too soon. But, hey, if you need to our house is just a half a block away.

Our Happy House is a great place to use as a base of operations, whether it be a day trip to the north shore to watch world class surfing, a trip into Honolulu for great shopping, or a series of three-minutes walks back and forth to the beach via Kalama Park. Nothing is too far away, and yet you're nicely removed. At the end of the day you'll be staying in a welcoming, diverse Hawaiian community that just feels GOOD. Waking up to the sunrise over the Mokes is a truly special experience.

The town of Kailua is big enough to offer many of the things you want while on vacation without being so busy and crowed to keep you from seeking them out. There are many great restaurants, shops, and coffee houses to enjoy by car, beach-cruiser, or foot.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: My wife and I fell in love with Kailua Beach and decided to make it our home away from home and our antidote for the stresses of living in the SF Bay Area. We love bringing all our friends and showing them the Real Hawaii. Such a wonderful getaway!
