  • Great Home, Excellent Location

    "First, the property owner/manager was very professional, and all the technical details concerning the rental went smoothly. When we arrived, the home was clean and ready to go. This house is very close to the beach, maybe 100 steps. The deck/lanai on the upper level is great with a beautiful view of the ocean. Kitchen was a good size and appliances were clean and worked well. Living area was nice size and had a nice flat panel TV for winding down before bed. Bathrooms were large and hot water lasted a long time. The neighborhood is very nice and quiet and the closest neighbor was pleasant. I spoke briefly with her while taking the garbage out, but otherwise no intrusions from anyone. The only real issues were lack of window screens on all but two windows, and there were quite a few small ants on the upper level. There were traps laid out, but didn't seem to help much. In all fairness though, I did not contact the owner regarding this. The windows screens would have been nice so we could have left the windows open at night. It got a little warm with them closed. We tried the first night, but after it got dark out and the lights were on in the house, a couple BIG bugs decided to join us. These babies had landing lights on them! So the ladies in our party said "close those windows". Overall I would definitely recommend this rental. Being so close to the beach is the best. This was our second trip to Kailua and won't be our last for sure, and when we bring the whole family again, I will certainly rent this house."

  • We Keep Coming Back to this House

    "We have been returning to this house every summer. It is great for two or three couples or a family. The deck and pool are fantastic at the end of a long day of activities. The house is a short walk to the beach to catch the sunrise and go for a stroll in the mornings. The other neighbors renting above and in back were very quiet and nice. We also like the easy access to and from the airport via the H-3. Rocky and Darlene are very nice and easy to work with. We definitely plan to return next year."

  • 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!!!"

  • Perfect retreat in Kailua

    "We're just back from our two weeks holiday. We spent five days of the first week at the Cottage in Kailua and it was perfect. By the time we left and moved on up the coast we were totally relaxed. The Cottage has everything you could possibly need for a holiday close to the beach. The furnishing were tasteful and comfortable. The kitchen worked well - we ate in all the time and used the BBQ every night except for one night when we walked to Buzz's Steakhouse (can recommend). Everything was spotlessly clean and beautifully renovated. Kailua beach is gorgeous and the beach toys helped to make our daily trip there a joy. I hope we can return soon to this wonderful property. Thank you Toni and Francis - you were a pleasure to deal with and thank you for allowing us to rent your little bit of paradise."
