"Our group of 5 ranged in age from 18-72. The house is set up so that the bedrooms are separated by an enormous living room. The beds were comfy, the linens high-quality. The house was built in the 40's and maintains the character of that era. The home is very tastefully decorated and all kitchen supplies are great (not cheap stuff). There is a full freezer (but bring ice as the ice maker can't keep up) and full fridge. The home comes with bogie boards (we all tried this fun sport-great for all ages), surf boards, beach umbrellas and chairs, tons of beach towels, a cooler, and some lawn games. The garage fits 2 cars.
Each of the 3 bedrooms has its own bathroom and the dining room is giant-great for sit-down meals. There are 2 grills, 2 outdoor showers, a hot tub, and beautiful pool. We dipped in that after the beach every evening.
We had some issues with a toilet, and Uta was right there to fix it. She is AMAZING! We arrived to a gift basket of goodies, as well as a call insuring she'd be available to help us with anything. Anytime I contacted her, she was quick with a friendly response (I couldn't find the washing machine which was outside by the pool).
Each morning we were greeted by a chicken family while we had coffee on the porch. We then walked across the soft lawn and 15 feet down the path to the powdery sand. The beach was a bit crowded, but that's what you get at one of the top beaches n the world. No snorkeling here, but Lanikai is a 5 minute drive and PERFECT. Kailua is great for swimming, boarding, sunning, people-watching, etc.
We hit Costco on the way in order to stock up, but there are grocery stores near by. There are also snorkel gear rental places.
I'd go back in a heartbeat."

"We cannot say enough good things about this cottage. It is just perfect in every way. Very clean, tastefully and simply decorated, cozy and comfortable and private. We walked to the beach almost everyday and enjoyed longs walks on the beautiful beach and seeing the sunrise. There are lots of stores and restaurants very close by within walking distance. Tonight the trade winds were back and we enjoyed watching the kite surfers on the bay. Our hosts Dave and Pua provided everything you could possibly need for a fun and comfortable stay, including a welcome gift of bread, pineapple and coffee for the first morning. We will stay here again for sure! Thank you so much for your warm hospitality!"

"We stayed for 10 days at Hale O Ka Lani in Kailua and it was perfect for our family of four. Two double bedrooms (both ensuite) and a small single room. The beds were comfy. Most of the house is air conditioned which was great for sleeping at night. The pool was lovely just as it appears in the photos. The location within a few minutes of the beach is just wonderful. We wished we had had more time to enjoy this. Kailua itself is a great little town with every amenity and even though we were off to a plush 5 star resort on another island, none of us wanted to leave. We all look back on our stay and say it was the favourite part of our six week holiday."
