Very relaxing visit
We absolutely loved staying here while on our honeymoon! The ocean breeze, comfortable accommodations, and ease of access to town was super. The hosts are quite lovely as well.
Couldn’t have gone any smoother.
Tom & Lucinda could not have been better hosts. They provided an access code at move-in that worked seamlessly. They provided more outlets and usb chargers than devices I travel with. Which is hard to do. We got to sit around the pool grotto a couple of evenings, which was lovely, with mood lighting and a babbling waterfall feature. Very relaxing.
Will definitely use them again if afforded the opportunity.
Comfortable and laid back
We had a great time in the Mountain View unit. It was clean and modern and very well cared for. The hosts were very welcoming and attentive. The location is in a residential neighborhood right on the water. We wanted a unit that had a pool, but we only used it once, preferring time in the ocean. The pool was great, though. I highly recommend watching the sunrise from shore in front of the house.
The pros of the place were many - clean, airy, good towels and linens. The kitchen was well equipped with a full size refrigerator and sink. There is a fancy microwave that likely also has some oven functionality. They have at least two table-top induction cook tops which satisfied our minimal need to cook. The bathroom is well equipped with double sinks and a multi-head shower. The entrance porch has a bar table for 4 which has a nice ocean view, there is also a table on the covered lanai that overlooks the pool area.
No significant cons, the current air conditioner is pretty loud, but the hosts are in the midst of installing a ductless system which will be much quieter. We didn't use it much, preferring to open the doors and let the breeze run through the room.
While there is a small beach in the neighborhood, the much larger Kailuana Beach is about a 20 minute walk (accessed off of N Kalaheo Ave). We enjoyed putting the beach items in the car and checking out more of the amazing beaches on the North Shore (hosts provided chairs, umbrella, beach towels, boogie board, and cooler).
Safeway and some restaurants are a very easy 15 minute walk - however, the Safeway is considerably more expensive (with poorer selection) than the Whole Foods in Kailua. There is one coffee place nearby, Muddy Waters, the barista was nice - but we weren't really big fans of the place.
We were nervous about Oahu because we typically go to the significantly less touristy places in Kauai, but we feel like the house, the town, and area of the Island were perfect choices.
My daughter and I stayed here and it was lovely and in a great location- close to downtown Kailua but quiet and had everything we needed. Highly recommend!
Great apartment in lovely neighbourhood
Right on the beach in a quiet culdersack, this apartment is great! We had a very relaxing stay - wish it could have been longer
Great spot in Kailua
Very nice, very clean, as advertised.
This rental accommodation is located in a very private and quiet neighborhood on the ocean in Kailua. This non touristy location offers a peaceful retreat yet is close to all the many activities, restaurants, and shopping that Kailua is known for.
Kailua Beach is recognized as one of the world's top beaches. The bay is perfect for kayaking, snorkeling, windsurfing, kite surfing, swimming, boogie boarding, surfing and sailing.
There are also several world class golf courses, horse back riding, dive sites, coastal island adventures, bicycle trails, and numerous hiking trails located just miles away from the property.
