Perfect getaway in Kailua

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Annette and Dieter's garden apartment. The location, walkable to the beach and a short drive to town, was ideal. The outdoor terrace was one of the highlights of our time on Oahu, as we regularly enjoyed relaxing with cocktails and dinner there. The size of the apartment was perfect for the two of us with a great kitchen. In addition, the owners were generous with how well the kitchen was stocked. Highly recommend.

lovely garden apartment, close to beach

  • 5 of 5

I loved my stay here: lovely, spacious, clean, well-stocked apartment with private garden and patio. I spent several months bouncing around the Honolulu and Windward area and this place was my favorite. The owners are delightful and gracious, the living space was quiet and comfortable, and beach access was effortless. I will stay here again next time I visit.

Perfect accommodation for our small family

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in this property. It was the perfect place for my husband and I and our 8 month old baby. The unit is attached to the owner's property but it is very private and has a separate entrance. There is a big fence around the whole property which is great for kids and makes parking very secure. The bed is huge and super comfortable. The couch was also very comfortable, and we enjoyed watching movies after the baby went to sleep. There is everything you could need in the kitchen, and Annette even gave us coffee, fruit and some other staples to get started. The super market is an easy 5-7 minute walk away. The beach is an easy 5 minute walk in the other direction.

Annette was a lovely host and was always around when we had a question. She even let us use her wagon to take our baby to and from the beach and there were beach toys and snorkel gear we could use as well. We rented some other baby gear (crib, high chair, stroller) from Paradise Baby and it was delivered to the property when we arrived and picked-up the day we left, so all very convenient. We would definitely stay here again.

Lovely apartment. Great location if you love beaches.

  • 5 of 5

Great location to explore Oahu. Kailua beach just a stroll away and we really enjoyed our morning beach walks here. Lanikai beach just south of Kailua is spectacular. Easy to drive to the North Shore, Waikiki and the Leeward coast for more amazing beaches. Secure gated parking at the house and the owners are almost always there so very safe. We were here for 3 weeks and really got to discover this beautiful island.

Car: recommended

We are very close to Kailua Beach, Oahu, within walking distance. Shopping, Restaurants are nearby, a drive to Honolulu and Waikiki takes about 35 minutes. The famous North Shore with the Polynesian Cultural Center is about an hour drive. The map provided is wrong. We are in Kailua, Oahu, not in Kona.
