Recent East Oahu reviews

  • DO NOT LOOK ANYWHERE ELSE! Talk about right on a private beach! Your own piece of Heaven.

    "I mean directly on the world's ranked No. 1 beach, with fine soft white sand, turquoise water, gentle breeze, amazing sun rise and panoramic view. This is the best place on the Island, why would you want to go anywhere else. I did a lot of research and places say at the beach, steps from the beach, yards from the beach but they wasn’t directly ON the beach. We came to Oahu for our tenth Anniversary plus it was on my bucket list! *The outside is an amazing place. There is a direct access to the lawn sitting area in front of the beach, basically used only by the renters. We had our morning coffee, while watching the sun rise from the lawn. There is no parking fees and right in front of your own private entrance! *The apartment has a living room area to watch TV with a room divider door in case someone is still sleeping, a long large desk that we used to eat lunch or look up our plans for the day on our laptop. There is a comfortable King size bed, plenty of pillows and extra blankets in the closet. The ceiling fans and the trade winds keep the apartment very cool in the summer. How about the closet space, way more than enough room for the 4 suitcases I brought….lol There is a great kitchenette which includes a washer/dryer, how great is that! Outside they have a clothes line to hang your bathing suits up if you don’t like to put them in the dryer and an outside shower to wash off sand. You could just stay in the apartment your entire stay but you must see the sites. I recommend the Polynesian Culture Center with luau and show. It was awesome! *The owners Shari and her father Herb are warm and friendly and are there only when you need them. They have their own yard and entrance. It is very quiet and you don’t even know they are there. They have beach chairs, snorkeling masks, cooler and Boogie boards for your use. We stayed here for 4 nights and then the Outrigger Waikiki Shore on the Beach for 6 nights. The Outrigger was ok but not the privacy, not the sand, not the relaxation, overcrowded and loud. Not the price and parking was 35. a night. When I arrived in Waikiki I just kept thinking about Kailua Beach and how much I missed it. You could still stay in Kailua and travel to Waikiki for the sites. Pilipu Place is only 20-25 minutes away. So, I suggest you pick this place as you will not be disappointed. Book soon as it will book up fast! Thanks Shari and Herb for a great vacation! Miss you"

  • Great house to stay in Kailua

    "We really enjoyed staying at this house. Great taste contemporary but homey feeling. Very clean and nice touch. Kids enjoyed the hot tub and playing xbox at night. Kitchen / dining and living room are open concept so you can still enjoy family time while you are cooking. There's a lot of seasonings to cook with. Unfortunately we had a lots of rain this side of island but still very relaxing. Shopping mall, gas station are nearby - walking distance. Kailua beach is 5min away by car. We will come back to stay at this house when we are back to Kailua. Thank you for letting us stay at your place."

  • Wonderful rental for two

    "Although we only had one day between our flight from Australia to Washington State, we wanted a relaxing, close to the beach spot away from Waikiki. I so wish we had more days to spend at the "House of Sweet Dreams". Anything you could possibly need is provided in this cottage and it is a short 1 block walk to a beautiful beach."

  • 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!!!"
