"This property is absolutely perfect - aside from no a/c - which even as Florida boys who rely on a/c to survive - we managed fine. It's simply magical. From the moment you walk through the front gate, you can feel the mana - it is quite strong.
We arrived late and were welcomed by the sound of the waves and the countless stars. When we awoke in the morning - it was a completely different world. There are gorgeous green mountains towards the front of the property and the stunning blue of the Pacific in the backyard. The inner courtyard was filled with beautiful flowers & trees and was alive with birds and lizards. Everywhere we looked, there was something new to see. The compound is totally private and the perfect place to escape. We didn't leave for the first 3 days.
We spent time in every area of the home - inside & out. The pool in the morning, followed by a dip in the ocean (via the private staircase directly in the backyard), followed by a nap on the huge indoor daybed, then lunch under the shade of the tiki hut, then a leisurely read in the hammock, back the pool, back to the ocean, dinner on the grill, wine on the comfy chaise while watching the stars and the occasional storm roll in.
The home opens completely and redefines indoor/outdoor living. The kitchen was fully stocked. There were plenty of towels and linens. The dining table is a massive work of art. The dual masters were great (both ensuite) and the guesthouse had 2 bedrooms with jack & jill bath. Ample parking in the driveway.
LaRay was great about arranging everything for our arrival. Candis was prompt at handling the initial booking and their Mom was the sweetest woman who stopped by as we were leaving to say goodbye. Fortunately she made it in time to enjoy a bloody mary with us before we actually left.
I really can't say enough about this home & its' hosts & am afraid to - as I'd like it to still be available to book again soon!
We loved our stay so much that we cancelled our trip to The Big Island and stayed an extra 4 nights.
The location is perfect - just at the end of the Lanikai Loop - and the gorgeous Lanikai Beach. It's a must more relaxed vibe on the Windward side - not the craziness of Waikiki (aka Town). Not even 5 minutes to Kailua Town (WholeFoods, R. Field Wine, Long's, The Food Company, Target). 10 minutes to Kaneohe. 20 minutes to airport/Waikiki. 30/40 minutes to Polynesian Cultural Center/North Shore.

"It was a great vacation. Very quiet and peacefull with the gorgious garden full of flowers. The apartment is located within walking distance of the beautiful Kailua Beach (about 15 minutes).
I had a wonderful time.
Thanks from Quebec, Canada!"

"This is an incredible location right on the beach, with views of turquoise ocean waters and endless sound of the waves from inside the house. The beach couldn’t be closer, just beyond the private grassy backyard. It’s a great beach for walking, catching the sunrise and swimming. The ocean is mild here and comfortable. So relaxing!
The house is spacious, well appointed and easy to live in. The owner, Steve, provides all the comforts of home including a fully outfitted kitchen, comfortable bedrooms, ample beach towels, soaps and sunscreen, beach chairs, boogie boards, daily newspaper, wi-fi, etc.
The town of Kailua is only 5 minutes away and provides many reasonably priced restaurants and shopping opportunities. Our family also enjoyed the local yoga studios, kayaking and water sports instruction based at Kailua Beach Park. Highly recommended!"

"We loved our home away from home! We live nearby but needed a place to stay while work was being done on our house. This cottage had everything we needed and more! The owners have thought of everything. There was ample space and beds for our family of five and even two full bathrooms. The lanai is a great place to relax and enjoy the views and the breeze. I highly recommend this cottage."
