Private Peaceful and Functional

  • 5 of 5

Aloha! Hola. I am just about to check out today and wanted to positively rate my stay. The location worked out really well for me to access the beach and family in both the Windward side and for events in Honolulu for the arrival of the Hokulea. I'd stay again! Malia

What a great experience!

  • 5 of 5

It was everything we expected for a "Homeaway!" Private, quiet, close to everything we wanted to do. Most mornings I walked five minutes to the beach for sunrise--I took a hundred or more photos over the week--followed by coffee and a yogurt bowl at Kalapawai Market.

Downtown Kailua is just a few blocks the other direction with all types of restaurants, grocery stores, boutiques and services.

The unit was clean and well-stocked with everything we needed.

Off-street parking is definitely a bonus.

This is our third trip to Kailua, but the first where we have had to find our own accommodations. We usually stay with our daughter.

The weather this trip was particularly hot and humid, but the windows, fans and air-conditioning helped keep this unit comfortable.

The lanai was a great place to relax and enjoy the mountain view.

If you want a quiet location away from the non-stop activity in Waikiki, this is definitely the place to consider.

We will be back again!

Owner's Response: Tom and Gina were just wonderful people. We were so happy that they had a great time enjoying themselves and yet had time to relax at home and enjoy the mountain view. Thanks for gracing us with your presence. Aloha!

Very clean, great location, off-street parking, comfortable bed!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have been coming to Hawaii for years and stayed in a friend's house near Waikiki but our favorite beach was always Lanikai. I decided that this time I wanted to spend more time in the town of Kailua and Lanikai Beach. I found this property and was so pleased to find such a great price. But that also made me very nervous because I expected to get what I paid for. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the owners take great pride in their vacation rentals and we loved it!

The furnishings aren't fancy or modern but the room and property are very clean and well-kept. The directions are very thorough and easy to understand. We really liked that everything is labeled and clearly marked. The bathroom is fully stocked with towels, sunscreen, shampoo/conditioner/body wash dispenser in the shower, hair dryer, after-sun products, etc. The kitchen has everything you need to make small meals without an oven or heat up leftovers from all the wonderful restaurants in the area.

The air conditioner and ceiling fan together create a perfect temperature in the room. We slept comfortably each night. Another thing we noticed was how quiet it is there. The neighbor's dog barked now and then but otherwise the property is void of street noise and any other noise. The view of the mountains from the lanai is stunning and changes with the time and weather. We were constantly taking photos.

The king-sized bed was very comfortable with large comfy pillows and cute sheets. There was also plenty of bedding to make up the very nice futon couch bed if needed. The large, walk-in closet really made the room super functional because there was plenty of room for luggage and to use as a changing room. In the closet there was also beach umbrellas, sun hat, snorkel gear, and shopping bags to use when clothing or grocery shopping. The doors to the closet are full-length mirrors so the room seems bigger.

The location of this property can't be beat! We walked everywhere to get to restaurants, Target, groceries, beach, shave ice, kayak/SUP rentals and Pillbox hiking trail.

The property also has a nice selection of bikes, boogie boards, beach chairs and more!

The owners were on vacation during our week but we hope to meet Ron and Lu in another visit because we would stay at this property again.

Super clean, unbeatable location, bikeable to Oahu's best beach

  • 5 of 5

This was perfect for our family of three, with a queen sized bed and a futon in what is essentially a studio apartment with a balcony. (Note that there's a microwave and hot plate, but no range.) It was super clean, the price was right, and the location was terrific -- right down the street from Kailua Beach, which was the best beach that we saw in our week on the island. The room's not deluxe, but perfect for over nights and breaks from the sun. The owners were out of town when we were there, but the managers were very friendly and accommodating, helping us with the bikes and getting us set up with beach chairs and boogie boards. We had a wonderful time.

Clean and very homely

Private, quiet, close to everything. We enjoyed the mountain view from our lanai. Ride the bike in the morning was amazing. The kitchen is small, cooking dinner is limited.

Quite possibly the best vacation of my life. This apartment isn't huge, but it was just right for three adults. It was clean, affordable and you just can't beat the view from the balcony. Plus, it's proximity to both Kailua beach (best beach in Hawaii) and the town/restaurants make it perfect. I would totally stay here again.
