  • We felt like we were home!

    "We spent 10 glorious nights in this wonderful place, overlooking Kaneohe Bay! It is called apartment in the description but it is so much more! We truly felt like we were in a home...our home! Every convenience at every turn, made for such a comfortable stay. Beautifully appointed with exotic furnishings from Bali, travertine and wood flooring, an amazing lanai with sweeping views, this hillside home in a lovely, quiet neighborhood was a gem! Close proximity to our favorite beaches of Kailua and Lanikai. Close grocery store (Safeway) and Walgreens and Longs Drug stores. Easy in and out of neighborhood and all points of interest. Look no further....this is a wonderful place for you to call "home"! Owner, Anita was a delight to communicate with in the planning and a wonderful breath of Aloha to us! We hope to return someday, and we would recommend this property to family and friends."

  • Comfort of home - turned our "trip" into a "Vacation"

    "I recently had the opportunity to extend a business trip and invite my small family along with me. This was our third and final location of the trip, and turned our trip into a vacation. We first stayed at a hotel in Waikiki (due to business needs), then an Air BNB location in Kaneohe Bay area (great view - but that was all). Landing at the Surf Hale, and having the guidance of Carly and Jeff was just what we needed. Connecting with Carly was easy and timely. Working with her either by text or e-mail we sorted the whole thing out, and got payment arranged via PayPal which was convenient also. The photos and description are accurate, the only difference is that some of the furniture was moved around. All in all it was very convenient and comfortable. There were three of us (myself, my wife, and 7 year old son) and it fit well. The kitchen wasn't huge, but right sized to let us create small meals easily. The walk to the beach was 5 minutes at most to Kailua Beach Park (seems like local hang out, with decent waves for the little grommets), and maybe another 3-5 minutes if you want to head to Lanikai Beach (highly recommended for snorkeling and floating... and just sun soaking). We were a short 5 minute drive from downtown Kailua. We also discovered that her comment about local "wildlife" was accurate as well. We spotted any number of lizards and geckos (my son was pretty excited about that), and had a regular cardinal come and sing to us on the patio in the morning. We should have paid more attention to the comment, and not left our bananas out through the night. It seems that local mice appreciate bananas and one helped himself to about half of a banana. We didn't see him or have anything else nibbled on for the remainder of the trip, so I guess he got his fill. We didn't use the kitchen too much, because Carly and Jeff guided us to a few good spots for food. The first was Kalapawai Cafe. You could get small meals, easy stuff for kids (including PB&J), or something more exotic and island focused (like striped marlin over lemongrass risotto). We also tried out Cactus, a (light?) Mexican restaurant that had island flavor. Not sure exactly how I'd classify it, but when we return to the area we'll go there again. Last we went to Kailua General Store for light fluffy shave ice. If we find ourselves back on Oahu we'll definitely seek out Carly and Jeff to see if the Surf Hale is available. Great spot to relax and enjoy."

  • Perfect beach hideaway

    "We stayed in the House of Sweet Dreams over the weekend - and we found it one of our favorite rentals in the Kailua area. We come to the island every few years to see my relatives - who live there - and always try to stay in Kailua, as we love the beach and the size of the town. And it's only 20 minutes into Honolulu. Kathy & Val are top-notch hosts - they offered to show us the beach and all around town (wish we could have spent time with them, but relatives awaited). The beach is a short block away - we walked there in our bathing suits with the beach chairs provided. This rental provided TONS of stuff for the beach: chairs, mats, boogie boards, a cooler and a big wagon to roll it down to the most perfect beach around. Additionally - the room was super comfy. The main room has a bed, dresser - lots of hangers and drawer space - and an a/c (yes!). There is a small kitchen area (which we used for morning coffee and snacks throughout the day) and a bathroom with many towels (including a giant stack for the beach). Outside the room is a private sitting area with two lounge chairs and a shaded table. We sat here each morning with our coffee as we woke up ready for another day with the rel's. Most places we have stayed we haven't even met the hosts of the home - Kathy & Val are so inviting and informative and just overall - friendly. We'd definitely stay here again and tell our friends."

  • Our perfect honeymoon

    "We have just returned from this paradise. It was a wonderful vacation! Everything is as it is written in the description: the cottage is spacious and private, just 3-5 min walk to the beach. Very quite street. The cottage equipped with everything you might need: washer & dryer, AC, any cooking utencils etc. And all of this is almost new and absolutely clean. I would like to recommend this place to anyone who wants to spend the best holyday in this hawaiian paradise!"
