Duke's Beach Cottage is located on a private lane in a quiet, affluent neighborhood on beautiful Kailua Beach. Exclusive vacation rental has become available for romantic couples getaway. This is where the famous surfer and Olympian swimmer Duke Kahanamoku would come and relax. Enjoy the huge lanai, with ocean views and trade winds blowing. Private beach access is solely for the owners on the street and their guests. You are steps from the three mile, white sand beach with no shoreline reef perfect for surfing, paddleboarders and wind surfing.
Duke's is maintained as a secondary home with extensive owner use. This is a smoke-free, pet-free residence with incredible views of the Mokulua Islands. Local restaurants, a grocery store in a small mall (Safeway) and a specialty wine/gourmet store are a short walk away. The 2 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom house plus outside shower is fully furnished with two dining areas, one inside and one on the lanai. There are contracted gardeners and pest control to service the home and yard regularly.
Please remember that Kailua Village is a private community on a very beautiful Hawaiian island. Our goal is to provide an enjoyable and comfortable experience in paradise, and the home does sleep five (5) people.

Cozy and classic 1942 single family dwelling on a quiet beach with shore access. Sitting on swing under a classic organic polynesian tree watching and hearing the waves crash with the warm tropical breeze kissing your face.
This was a quaint older home just 2 houses from the beach. Able to see and hear the ocean and watch the sunrise from the front deck. This home is not modern, but makes you feel like you're in "old" Hawaii, the way it used to be. Nothing fancy, no AC, not a place to work on your PC and do business, but a place of relaxation and just kicking back. They have lots of fans to help keep you cool, even in the summer, along with the wonderful trade winds off the ocean. Property was very clean and well maintained.
The Kitchen was well stocked and has all the necessary cooking amenities, again nothing fancy, but adequate. If there is anything you need, Melody, the manager, is great at getting it for you. She is a very attentive host.
It was just the four of us, my husband and I and our 2 sons. We had the large Master bedroom with a great king bed (nice mattress and pillows--slept great). Our boys slept in the second bedroom with the twin bed and the full size bunk bed. Each room had its own bathroom. Then there was an extra full bath with shower out next to living room. The guys loved the outdoor shower. The right size home for a couple and 2-3 kids.
Love Kailua too. I grew up around here so my heart is close to home here. For a small town, Kailua has a lot to offer. This home is located on the North side Kailua, but all the stores in the main part of town are about 2 miles south and Lanikai beach is 3 miles away...Kind of far to walk, but could rent bikes.
We loved it and would definitely come back here.....Mahalo!
Quaint cottage, vintage Hawaii, steps to beach. Kailua location perfect. Suited us 50-60 year old foursome. Lived on the spacious deck, but plenty of room inside. Kitchen had everything and more to accommodate cooking. We explored the area and enjoyed nearby restaurants. Coffee, sunrise on the beach each morning, outdoor shower to rinse off sand. Clean, quiet, private. Everything we needed for the beach. Did not want to leave. Melody was very helpful and a phone call away. Would definitely rent again.
We stayed here with our two kids (12 and 14) and we all loved it. The cottage has a really comfortable, vintage feel to it, and is at most a one minute walk from one the most breathtaking beaches in the world. The surf was up when were there and we and our kids spent hours boogie boarding and bodysurfing. Kailua is a beautiful little town--Island Snow for shave ice is a must, and Buzz's has the best steaks! Location is convenient to all amenities and is well-situated for day trips along the coast. Also, must mention that Melody, the property manager, was very helpful! Highly recommend!
Our plan for this vacation was to get away and relax..which is exactly what this place is for. A quiet beach cottage with an old Hawaiin feel. It was clean, comfortable and simple. We went with our 2 girls who are 19 and 17 and had a blast. The outdoor shower was great..none of us showered inside once! The beds are comfortable, and there was enough space for all 4 of us to chill out. The lanai was awesome with a view of the ocean and plenty of shade from a huge tree. The walk to the beach was short and the water was awesome..warm, easy waves, clear and beautiful! I would highly recommend this spot for families or couples. We hope to go back next year!
Duke's was a perfect place for our family vacation, with pre- and teen in tow. The beach was steps away, as described, and the kids, especially, took advantage of it frequently. The location on Oahu was great for low-key relaxation, yet gave us easy access to sights on other parts of the island. The lanai overlooks a beautiful and private yard and the ocean; the cottage is well equipped with snorkel and other beach gear, with movies and books, and feels like home. The location is perfect--a private drive off the Kailua shoreline route, and is just blocks from other public beach parks and the charming downtown. Alan's recommendations for local activities, like hikes and restaurants, were great--we loved Buzz's and the farmers' market! Our hostess was there to greet us and to say goodbye, and made communication with her easy. We enthusiastically recommend it!
This is the perfect spot for any young family that wants to enjoy Oahu. Unlike Waikiki, you are not confined to a 500-square-foot hotel room - and the ridiculous hustle/bustle of downtown life. Here, you have an almost private beach (all to yourself)... which is among the most beautiful in the world.
The property itself has several rooms, plenty of beds, and TONS of outdoor space. There is a huge yard, deck, BBBQ area, an awesome outdoor shower -- and unlike most properties in Kailua -- your neighbor's noise is to a minimum. It is unbelievably quiet.
We will stay here for many years to come. Kailua is paradise by itself, but Duke's Cottage takes it to another level.
Please rent this place!!!
