Kailua cottage description

Relax and enjoy in tranquil and beautiful Kailua, a friendly small town just 30 minutes away from Honolulu!

Enjoy your visit in this spacious self-contained 660 sq ft 1 bedroom rental adjacent to our home, but with a very private feeling! The rental contains clay art pieces that give a unique flavor to it and the outdoor area provides a wonderful venue to enjoy Oahu's nice weather.

Kailua Beach, one of Hawaii's finest, is only a couple of blocks away from this rental (about a 5-10 minute walk). You will access the beach in its mid section, which is less crowded than the beach park section and has better boogie boarding and some tree-shaded areas, and the sunrise is fantastic (make sure you bring your camera!)

If you like sea and outdoor activities, Kailua beach is a terrific place to do boogie-boarding, kayaking, kite surfing, swimming and (small waves) surfing. There are beautiful trails in Kailua and neighboring Lanikai that have breathtaking views of the Windward coast. In addition, outdoor activities are accessible all over the Island of Oahu, and it only takes about 3.5 hours to drive around the whole Island, so everything is close.

If you enjoy shopping, Kailua offers all kinds of stores: all the way from typical and familiar brand stores like Macy's & Pier 1 Imports to chic and vintage boutiques, antique stores, and art galleries.

Kailua also has excellent restaurants, juice bars, shave ice locales, bakeries, and cafes. We have put together a booklet that lists all these food and drink venues and we will also be happy to give you personalized recommendations based on our own experiences!

There are also lots of activities in Honolulu, which is only half an hour away by car (public bus is also available): theater, music, performing shows, museums, movies, etc.

So why not get the best of both worlds and enjoy the lively and busy action of Waikiki and Honolulu and spend the night in slow-paced Kailua?

We hope to see you soon!

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2010

                      About the owner: We moved to Hawaii from California five years ago, after falling in love with the Islands during our first visit. We like the calm, friendly, and safe atmosphere of Kailua and all the fun water and outdoor activities. We enjoy the variety of cuisine available and interesting outlets like independent bookstores, boutiques, and cafes.

                      Why the Owner Chose Kailua:
                      The proximity to beautiful and quiet Kailua beach and our friendly neighbors who have been around for decades, give this property a strong sense of being in and enjoying Hawaii.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                      It is a location off the beaten path and the property has nice palms and plumeria trees with, during the season, gorgeous flowers with a delicious fragrance! The easy access to the beach allows us to enjoy early walks on the beach, fun beach outings with the family, and free exercise in the form of walking, running, swimming, kayaking and surfing! :)
