About the Property

Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

E Komo Mai, or welcome, to our quaint and charming Hawaiian cottage, Pualani's Place. Our name says it all: Pualani means 'heavenly flower' in Hawaiian. Pualani's Place is tucked away on a quiet street in beautiful Kailua. It is a four-minute walk to one of the best beaches in the world. Relax in our spacious, attached studio for two nestled among a private tropical garden. Everything you need for the perfect tropical getaway is here at Pualani's Place.

Whether it is sipping your cup of coffee on our outdoor covered lanai, catching the sunrise on the beach, taking a windsurfing or kite surfing lesson, buying fresh papayas or pineapple from the Kailua open market on Thursday mornings, shopping in Kailua town, dining at one of the many fine restaurants, snorkeling and meeting up face to face with one of the many sea turtles that live in Kailua Bay, or hiking on lush mountain trails, your options are endless!

Scroll down below to Links for more information to see MORE PHOTOS & VIRTUAL TOUR (see a 360-degree view of the room).

Keywords: Attached Cottage

The cottage has its own private entry, and off street parking available. The lanai is just off the main room and is separated by sliding french doors. All windows seal tight to keep the noise out and the cottage has air-conditioning, if desired. The bathroom has a large shower, in place of a bathtub.

Car: Recommended

Pualani's Place is perfectly situated just 1-1/2 blocks to one of the most beautiful sandy beaches - Kailua Beach (2/10ths of a mile), and it's a short walk into the revitalized Kailua Town. Located on a quiet side street, it is the perfect home base for all of your Oahu activities and sightseeing. Groceries (Down to Earth, Whole Foods, Safeway, Foodland, Times), drugstore, shops, restaurants, a 24-hour laundromat, and library are all within walking distance.

Kailua has a number of farmers markets that offer fresh fruit and vegetables, souvenirs, and the night market always has great take out dinner offerings.

They happen:

Thursday mornings 9-10 a.m., Kailua District Park

Thursday night market 5-7 p.m., Longs Drugs parking lot

Sunday 9 a.m.-1 p.m., Kailua Elementary School

For early risers, watch the sunrise on Kailua Beach, walk the 2-mile sandy stretch and stop at Kapalawai Market for a cup of coffee and a bite to eat or head over to Cinnamon's (go early) for their famous Guava Chiffon or Red Velvet Pancakes.

You'll find that Kailua Town has a wide range of dining options and we are happy to provide recommendations.

In the Hawaiian language Kailua means 'two seas,' or 'two currents,' a contraction of the words kai (meaning sea or sea water) and 'elua (meaning two); it is so named because of the two lagoons in the district or the two currents which run through Kailua Bay.

We hope you choose to stay with us.
