Overview

About the property

House, 9 Bedrooms , Convertible bed(s), 5 Baths, (Sleeps 18-22)

Our resort style home is the ideal spot for large gatherings and family reunions. The free flowing floor plan makes it perfect for entertaining. The main house has 6 bedrooms, and three bathrooms. There is a private bedroom with entry from the pool deck that separates the main house from back half. The back unit is a two bedroom, two bath unit. Each unit has its own fully equipped kitchen, dining area, and living room. To clarify as many people have questions about the layout. You are renting the entire property. Having a front and back unit is great for multiple families. Plenty of space to come together but enough privacy when you need it. There is plenty of off-street parking (2 garage, 4 driveway), and it is just a short walk from the world famous Kailua Beach.

The Location:

The home is located in the beautiful, beachside community of Kailua. Kailua is separated from the hustle and bustle of downtown Honolulu by a mountain range and a short 15-minute drive. But, it may as well be a world away. As you leave the town side of the island and emerge from the mountain tunnel, you are instantly awestruck and comforted by the magnificent panorama before you. It is like a doorway to paradise.

The world famous Kailua beach (voted the #1 American beach by Conde Naste)is a 5 mile stretch of white, sandy heaven. The quaint beachside community of Kailua has lots of wonderful, local restaurants and shops, along with almost any water-sport or adventure activity you can think of. There are fabulous nearby golf courses, gorgeous hikes, and countless other activities to keep you busy. And, if you cannot find what you are looking for, hop on the Internet either in the office or access our wireless connectivity poolside with your laptop.

Mahalo for looking at our listing. Enjoy your Hawaiian vacation!

Guestbook comments from the owner

If you want the “real” Hawaii and not the Orange County version of Hawaii, stay out

of Waikiki or one of the other fancy resorts and go to Kailua/Lanikai. We stayed at a

beautiful estate house called “Paradise-found Retreat” (http://kailua-hawaii-vacation-

rental-home.com/ ) in Kailua just a couple blocks from the beach. The location was great

and the house is absolutely splendid. It has such an open island feel and the amenities are

top notch and the house is in wonderful condition with big rooms and comfortable beds.

The owners are wonderful easy going people.



We lucked out even more because the owners happened to be there at the time. One may think that having the owners there would make it stressful, but not the case here. Becky is so friendly and helpful. Her children played with our children, and it was just very laid back and cool. She left us alone to do our

own thing – we probably just didn’t leave them alone enough. If you want to know about

anything on Oahu ask Becky. She knows all the hikes and places to go, things to see.

Like having a personal guide book right there with you.



Kailua has great restaurants (Buzz’s, Pinky’s to name just two) and a couple pretty cool

pubs. It has a great small town feel, but everything you would need is just minutes away.

Try a great coffee shop called “Muddy Waters” next to Safeway. But most of all the

area has one of the best beaches in the world and just steps away from the house. Words

can’t describe the color and beauty of the turquoise ocean and surrounding beaches. We

also experienced the Lagoons at Ko Olina, the North Shore and Waikiki, but we ended up

coming back to Kailua for the best beach experience. The water temperature is perfect.

It is quite easy and inexpensive to rent kayaks or snorkels and boogey boards. I didn’t try

the wind surfing or kite surfing, but will next time as Kailua is the capital of the world for

those things.



Overall I give the experience there a 10 out of 10. You won’t be disappointed staying at

Paradise-found Retreat.

Perfect for our family of 16; ages 5 months to 98.

  • 5 of 5

Becky is always immediately responsive. The house is open, airy, family friendly and fully furnished for all our desires. The beachis nearby. The pool is well-maintained and refreshing. The outside shower is a real bonus when you return from the beach with sand everywhere. Great property!

I wish we could have extended our stay

  • 5 of 5

The house and ease of access to the beach is as advertised. What I found exceptional were the responsiveness of Mark and Becky when we called for assistance. Most of our requests were minor (we needed more towels and the coffee maker wasn't functional) but the last one made me very glad I had taken out the 'breakage' insurance offered by VRBO. I don't know how it happened (there were several smaller children in our group) but one of the toilets developed a crack in the tank and was leaking water onto the floor. We called Mark and Becky about the problem the morning we discovered it and by the time we returned to the house later that afternoon, the toilet had been replaced. I wish I could get that kind of service at home! I recommend both the insurance policy and Mark and Becky's rental. Dotti Roy

ANNUAL REUNION

  • 5 of 5

We are so pleased with our decision to pick this wonderful and spacious house. It is so large to accommodate 17 adults celebrating their 43rd annual college class reunion. This is the perfect house for a large group even with children.

Our group totally enjoyed the eight days we spent there and took advantage of the nearby beach, with daily early morning beach walks and dips into the welcoming Pacific Ocean, followed by a rinsing swim in the pool. The reunion was a success and very memorable.

It is accessible to major freeways and thoroughfares, making our island tour and commute a lot easier and more enjoyable. Additionally, MCAS Kaneohe, is but a five minute drive allowing us access to base facilities including the exchange and commissary.

Lastly, MAHALO to Becky for taking care of our needs (big and small) and providing us information about Kailua and its environs.

Great for family renuion

  • 5 of 5

This house was great for our family reunion. there were 19 of us age 1 year to 79 years old. Everyone had a private area and the big house gathering room was really nice. Becky was available for any questions we had and she is so very nice. We had a great time here, it is in a fantastic location. There is not air conditioning in every room but that is in the description. I would recommend this to anyone in need of a large house.

Visit to paradise

  • 5 of 5

This place was amazing! Becky accommodated our extended family of 14, including 3 kids, and made our stay immensely enjoyable. The pool was perfect when we needed a break from sandy beaches. Becky made herself available for questions we had and was a pleasure to be in business with. We will definitely be back.

Perfect for our trip - 13 guests

  • 5 of 5

The house was great - it fit our large party very nicely. The pool was beautiful too. Plenty of seating, bedrooms, etc. Plenty of parking. Kailua Beach was 3 blocks away and one of the nicest beaches we have ever visited, so of course we went there every day.

Becky was very attentive and took care of a few small issues for us very quickly. I would absolutely recommend this property for anyone in need of a vacation house.
