WELCOME to Hawaiian-Style Get-a-Way. The rental is located in a nice quiet neighborhood on the lake. The property is close to the beach/bus/town. There is a good breeze that comes off the lake. From the backyard you can take an energetic kayak down to the the world renown Kailua Beach. It is about a 30 minute paddle. It has a Hawaiian-style, relaxed, calm feel to it.
THE VACATION RENTAL is attached to the back of my house. It is a Patio Apartment. The bedrooms are of course private and separate. As you enter the area there is a washer/dryer on your left as well as the kitchenette and bathroom. The living room area is an open air patio setting that opens up to the back yard over looking the lake with the Lanikai Mountains as a backdrop scenery. You can enjoy dinning at the table or relaxing on the patio furniture, with both activities you are able to enjoy the view of the back yard and the lake. Then on the other side of the patio are the bedrooms. The regular size bedroom sleeps two adults comfortably on a full/queen size bed. The larger bedroom sleeps 2 adults on a queen size bed. There is also a single roll away bed and 2 double mattresses that can be used on the floor. Also on the property for your enjoyment are BOOGIE BOARDS, beach chairs, tennis racquets, and a double KAYAK. For those who only partially want to relax internet is available if you bring your lap top.
ENCHANTED LAKES is a great walking area with parks nearby for, basketball, kite flying, or ball throwing for stretching the legs. It is also a great area to bike around. It has a small local shopping center and a few dinning places. It is located 5 min away by car from Kailua Town.
KAILUA has one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, a long stretch of sand to walk along. If you are really adventurous there is wind surfing, kiteboard surfing, boogie boarding, body surfing, surfing, and kayaking. For a more sedative activity there is a beautiful walk along the beach, sunbathing, and tide pooling at Kailua beach. There are also some land activities to explore like hiking, tennis, golfing, and biking. Art gallery shopping is one of the many activities to enjoy in Kailua. It is a fun town to walk around, enjoying a variety of ethnic foods, local shops, coffee houses, and local desert places. If you are an early riser you could head down to the beach to watch the breath taking view of the sunrise at the beach or catch the sunrise coming over the mountain from your very own backyard.
