perfect house for a Kailua vacation!
"We recently came back and had a great vacation in Kailua. My family of 5 (3 kids) and my parents were there and we all thought the house was perfect. There was also more than enough room for us. The house was clean, well stocked, well maintained etc. We had 3 kids, 7 and under and there were plenty of beach toys, towels etc - everything you would need that you won't need to buy and leave while on vacation. The pack n play and sheets were great to have there. The convenient walk to the beach alone was perfect. The convenience store about 2 houses down was great- best coffee and sandwiches. Best pizza store was about a block away. We were really happy with our choice and felt right at home and didn't want to leave at the end of our vacation. All in all we would go back and would recommend the house to anyone looking to go to Oahu/Kailua. The beach right down the street was amazing! Wish we could have stayed longer!"

"What a wonderful stay We had in such a terrific house! The beach access to gorgeous Lanikai Beach is right across the street so we could pop over anytime and really enjoyed being on the beach in the full moon. My adult children were able to do all the strenuous hiking they wanted and Honolulu was just 25 minutes away for Christmas shopping. This home and kitchen is wonderfully supplied with everything we needed. Reenie and Barney were available for questions and made us feel very welcome. We will be back!"

"Lori and Bob prepared our one week beach home to its best. After booking the home in January of 2015 for a weeks stay in April. In March, Lori called and informed me that the home needed repairs due to weather damages and asked if I could make alternate reservations at other vacation homes in the area. So I began to make inquiries at other vacation rentals without any success. In the mean time, Lori again called and informed me that she had made calls to contractors to come out and make the repairs prior to our arrival. We were relieved that she was able to accomplish this task since we had no other pending reservations for our stay on Oahu. Upon our arrival, Lori was at the home to greets us and gives us a tour of the property. It fit nicely for our group accomodations. The home was properly stocked with enough bedding for the number of adults in our party. Even the baths were properly stocked with enough supplies for a weeks stay. The location was excellent, only minutes from the beach with in walking distance and easily accessible to the main highways into town. We enjoyed hearing the birds singing and giving a wake up call each of the morning of our stay. The vacation home is located on a corner lot, so there was adequate space for parking vehicles in the driveway and along the Aalapapa Drive and Lanipo Street. We also stopped by Island Snow to purchase their delicious shaved ice made popular by President Obama and his family. And, had Teddy's original Bigger Burgers while shopping in Kailua town. These establishments are only minutes away from the home.
Thank you, Lori and Bob for making our stay a memorable and relaxing vacation.
We will call on you again!"

"Susan and Claude are absolutely wonderful hosts! I'm an Oahu local from Waipahu who wanted a nice getaway with some friends from Washington and the Blue Ginger Cottage was perfect. The listing doesn't do this cottage justice! The property was beautiful, well-maintained, pristine, and the amenities were overflowing!
My friends and I attended their weekly event "Bubbly Sunday" and it was like being part of a family, our hanai family. I would recommend it to anyone who stays here. Susan also let us have some of our own guests over for a bbq and some swimming in the pool, which was so gracious of her.
The beach was less than a 10 minute walk away. It's a lot closer than I thought it was going to be! At the cottage, there is basically everything and anything that you may need to go to the beach. Snorkeling gear, towels, beach bags, squirt guns, floaty tubes, boogie boards, and other things that I can't even remember right now. The outside shower was great for washing off all the salt water and sand before entering back into the cottage.
The Blue Ginger Cottage was just everything that we could have wanted and needed in our stay. Thank you so much Claude and Susan for everything! I would definitely love to come back and stay here again. I'll make sure to reserve some time to have a nice painting session with Susan ;)"
