Paradise Found Retreat

Property Description:

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 5 bedrooms, and three bathrooms. There is another private bedroom with entry from the pool deck that separates the main house from a two bedroom, two bath unit. Each unit has its own fully equipped kitchen, dining area, and living room. There is plenty of off-street parking, 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- ) 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.

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.

Relaxingly Perfect

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our family! We decided to get married in Oahu and wanted a house that would keep the majority of our family. this house gave us plenty of space when anyone needed down time and relaxation and great common space for groups to socialize and enjoy each other. The house was extremely kid friendly with a baby gates were available to corral the little ones in. The pool was perfect and the kitchen great for cooking large meals. The beach is so close with plenty of space and beautiful views. All in all, this house was a perfect fit for us and we can't wait to go back! Becky is great to work with and so friendly! Thank you!

wonderful family reunion

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a home for a large family, this is perfect for you. We had 4 siblings with spouses, teenage and grown children and grandchildren -22 in all from 4 countries. Couple of minor issues that were addressed within 30 min with a phone call. Nothing negative that affected our stay. Everybody agreed it was a great house. A couple of points to mention, it is a family neighbourhood,so you should be respectful to neighbours, you will see an occasional bug and gecko because of the tropical climate. Would recommend a car but only ashort drive over the mountain to waikiki. Be careful of speed limit on the down side of the mountain, could cost you a ticket! All of the reviews are pretty accurate except for the one neg. If you are looking for something to complain about you can find it. We would not hesitate to stay here again. Thanks becky.

Perfect home for a family stay!

  • 5 of 5

This home was absolutely perfect for our large family! Everything was exactly as advertised. Becky was excellent to work with and greeted us with a warm welcome and was an excellent host! Each of our children and spouses had their own rooms and bathrooms and the nursery was upstairs was perfect for our grand babies. We used the pool a ton and our boys loved the foosball table as well! There were plenty of towels and having a washer and dryer was really nice as well. Thanks Becky for making our once-in-a-lifetime dream vacation to Hawaii with our family so memorable!

Great property and responsive owner

  • 5 of 5

This house was absolutely ideal for the members of our wedding party in January 2014. On two different occasions we had minor issues that Becky addressed within just a few hours. The house has ample parking for 6 vehicles if you use the garage (maybe 7 depending on how you park) and it is perfect for large groups. It is difficult to see from the photos but the configuration is basically as follows: Three bedrooms and a bathroom on the second floor of the main house, two bedrooms and two bathrooms (including the master with the large tub and walk in shower) on the main floor of the main house and then two bedrooms and two bedrooms in a poolside house that looks to have been added a few years later. The master bathroom is accessible only from the master so the other main floor bathroom (which is ADA accessible) serves as the main bathroom for the main floor. The eighth bedroom is really more of a breezeway between the main house and the newer addition house so they are technically both connected but this particular room opens only to the pool area and not either house. There are two futon style couches in the smaller guest house and a larger sofa in the main house, too, that could have potentially accommodated someone, as well. The kitchen and dining area are very open and the windows and doors can be pocketed completely which opens up the whole house to the pool area. It is wonderful to not have to "meet in the lobby" or call each others rooms to make a plan for the day as you would in a hotel. The wireless internet and large desk made the house viable for getting some work done, too. The pool is great and no colder than the ocean so don't let the older reviews scare you off. This is a great home and Becky is super helpful.

I really have nothing negative to say. It is warm in Kailua and some of the rooms do not have air conditioning, but there are fans to help with cooling if the trade winds are not working with you. The neighbors are doing an extensive remodel right now so it is a little less tranquil for a few more months in 2014 but I would guess by summer that will be completely done and the hammering will subside. During your stay Becky could not be more attentive to your needs but during the booking process it can take a while to get a response - be patient, though, as she will eventually get back to you. We will definitely be back!
