"Rented for 7 days. Was contacted by owner (who appeared attentive and concerned) as soon as review went up about the water and ice maker. At that time there was no problem. Ice maker was fine throughout. Hot water was fine until the day before we were leaving and only one bathroom. (At first you had to let the water run like many hotels) The second bathroom and kitchen water had hot water when needed.
That said, the house is large, very welcoming, open, spacious. Well lit with natural light. Windows open with nice cross-breeze. Air conditioning works great with each room having its own. Beds were fine, soft not hard mattresses and nice bedding. Towels were new plentiful, thick and for bath and beach. Kitchen had more appliances than needed. Utensils are hodgepodge but you can make do with what's there Spices, sugar, honey tea. Think things renters left. Beautiful welcome on table. We received large bottled Hawaiian water, chocolate chip cookies that I wish I could have found and bought and Hawaiian candy. Flat screen in every room. Futons everywhere. 5 rolls of toilet paper in each bathroom Very clean house. It was like any neighborhood with close neighbors. Sometimes you hear them. It is not a Party house but I would have felt comfortable having people over. We had a.great time, always felt comfortable and would do it again in a heartbeat."

"Excellent space and facilities for several families or a large group. Very clean, modern and well furnished. Well stocked large kitchen and very spacious lanai for lounging and dining next to hot tub and warm large pool. Huge large screen TV in great room. Bedrooms are well separated and people can really spread out with their "own" areas. Good supply of outdoor toys. New outdoor grill. Entire large lot is walled and very private. Pictures very accurately describe premises. Quiet residential area and a short easy drive to excellent beaches and shopping. Kailua is a very nice city, and area is not crowded like Honolulu. Close to wide variety of beaches and activities. Management very friendly, responsive and helpful. 6 adults and 7 children all had separate areas and had a wonderful time at the house and in the area. Be sure to visit Manoa chocolate factory in Kailua. You can rely and trust this location and management. Definitely would return."

"We stayed at this wonderful home during the Christmas/New Year time 2014/2015. It is a great house for a large family or multiple smaller parties as is offers plenty of room indoors and out - we were 10 and it never felt crowded. The house itself has a great flow and was built by the owner himself - large common rooms (including an epic master suit with huge walk in closet, desks, separate shower and tub etc.). We cooked a lot and loved the outdoor BBQ and patio. The pool was a bit cold due to the cooler weather during our stay, but I understand the owner is going to install a heater system. The separate little pool house with shower and toilet was convenient too, so we could leave all the wet bathing suits outside.
The location is perfect - just a quick 1 min walk to the beach through the park. There is a great market and coffee place just around the corner where we walked to almost every day (with a 3 year old, so no long distance). The shave ice store is, of course, famous and amazing and not to be missed. Buzz's cross the bridge is also a quick walk and has some nice food, especially for appetizers and cocktails. Nice hikes close by and great location to start exploring the island from.
The beach itself is one of the nicest I have ever been to (and I have traveled a lot!). Gentle waves even in winter, but just enough of a surf for kids to do a bit of boogie boarding. Softest sand ever. And for the sun-conscious - lot's of shade if you want it.
Another huge plus - the super cute resident chicken (Cornelia) - who kept our daughter entertained all day, every day! So gentle and sweet.
Last but not least, the were lucky enough to meet the owners at the beginning and end of our stay - a wonderful family who will go above and beyond to make you comfortable. We communicated all the time during our stay (questions about how something works, small things that needed fixing, etc.) and they were amazingly helpful and responsive. During a storm when the power went out in the region the next door neighbor even came by and dropped off lanterns just to make sure his neighbor's guests were comfortable and well taken care of! We'd be back, just to see them again!

"Located a few short blocks from the beach, the Hula Breeze was the perfect tucked away spot in a quiet Kailua neighborhood. We felt like residents walking to and from the beach with all the neighbors saying hello and making us feel welcome. The Pineapple Room was cheery, clean and well-appointed. Everything we needed was right at hand. The gardens and pool were lovely and relaxing. The hosts, Allison and Sven, were warm and welcoming. Highly recommend this rental!"
