  • It's like staying with family!

    "Staying at Palm Cottage was the BEST part of our trip to Hawaii!!! Words can't adequately express what an AMAZING place this is! The owners, Millie & Norm, went ABOVE & BEYOND to do everything they could to help us. . . we felt like we were house guests of close friends/family!!! Our cottage was PERFECT for us! At first we were hesitant when we heard there was no A/C-however, we found out immediately that our concern was in vain. There were numerous windows (with screens & blinds) that welcomed the ocean breeze CONSTANTLY. We stayed cool the entire time. . . the temperature was perfect. It added to the Hawaiian atmosphere-it was incredibly pleasant. (tip: make sure you raise the blinds when you sleep-as the wind will knock them against the window frame. :-) The windows are high enough above the bed that you won't be visible from outside). The cottage itself is SUPER clean. . . in fact, everything in it appears to be brand new. Millie & Norm thought of everything a house guest could possibly need OR WANT!!! As soon as we arrived they greeted us with a basket full of basic food necessities & treats. We had apples, bananas, Hawaiian jelly, sweet rolls, pastries, Hawaiian chocolates, chips, and salsa. The fridge was stocked with milk, eggs, fruit juice, sausage, etc. The cupboards were also filled with all kinds of food & condiments. We hardly had to buy any groceries at all!!!! The bathroom was stocked with beach towels, beach bag, a cooler beach bags, sunblock, soaps, shampoo, shower gel, hair dryer, lotions, & more!!! They also provide an iron. On top of all of this, we even found out that we would have access to our own "DVD rental place"! Norm has a HUGE collection of DVD movies & we borrowed a few. After a busy day of activities, it was so nice to relax watching a good movie at night! (they even provided popcorn : )! The view from the porch is amazing! Millie & Norm have been gifted with "green thumbs" & their backyard is a mini botanical garden. All kinds of fruit trees, beautiful flowers, and plants covered their yard. Millie even generously shared a butternut squash & papaya with us! The walk to Kailua beach took about 10-12 minutes. One day we even walked to Lanikai Beach (about 25 minutes). The walk to town (plenty of grocery stores & restaurants was around 10 minutes). Any questions we had, Millie & Norm were MORE than willing to help us, and offer fantastic advice about the island. If I could sum up the cottage in a word "AMAZING" MUST STAY!!!"

  • Great Vacation

    "This place is all about the location. The walk to beautiful Kailua Beach Park is under 5 minutes and it is FANTASTIC!! Carly and Jeff were more than helpful with places to go and things to do and Jeff was a great help in renting Kayaks for a day. Everything you need for a day at the beach is already there!! The place is nice and private and everything is plenty comfortable. We did not use the kitchen much but it was certainly an adequate place to cook a couple of meals. Thank you Carly and Jeff we had such a wonderful time!!"

  • Fabulous Vacation Home

    "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!"

  • Kailua Retreat

    "My husband, college-aged son and I had a great time here. The property is an apartment above a garage in a residential neighborhood. We felt very comfortable. It was great having a FULL kitchen with everything needed. If there was something additional, Brian was just a text message away and answered any question very timely. He offered tips on where to go and asked us if there was something particular we wanted to do that he might have a connection for a deal. The bathroom was large - perfect to have full-size washer/dryer - bedroom with a queen size bed and a twin. Comfortable living room furniture - TV with cable - Wifi internet access. Windows on all sides of the apartment so it was pretty comfortable with the windows open. There is a small shopping center within walking distance with a grocery store, L & L restaurant and a Japanese restaurant. There is beach access within walking distance (~.5 mile). The beach is GORGEOUS and was barely occupied. Drive to Kailua beach park or Lanikai is 5-10 minutes (<5 mi). Great place to stay! Mahalo Brian....."
