Overview

About the property

House, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Accommodations: One bedroom with queen bed, private entrance, private bathroom with combination tub and shower. Ceiling fans and individually controlled air conditioning. 32 inch flat screen TV with cable channels, DVD player and DVD library. Coffee maker with complimentary coffee, microwave and compact refrigerator in kitchenette. Sony AM/FM CD Player with iPOD dock/charger and free high speed wireless internet. Free use of washer and dryer, including detergent & softener. Two beach chairs, towels, two masks and snorkels, two beach mats and one cooler provided. And, no need to worry about taking shampoo, conditioner and body wash with you, or buying it once you get here. We supply Pantene shampoo, conditioner, and Dial body wash in a shower dispenser- more than enough for your entire stay, plus a Waterpik shower head.

Location: Adjacent to Kailua beach park in a quiet residential setting. Park steps away.

Ideally situated in a quiet cul-de-sac and a short 10 minute stroll from one of the world's best beaches, Hale Lilikoi is your Hawaii home away from home. You'll find that being on Hawaii time means more than setting your watch back a few hours. The pace of life is slower here and there's always time to smile and talk story.

The town of Kailua, lying between the Ko'olau mountains and the sea, has a wealth of shops and restaurants, despite its modest size. There are more than 50 dining options to accommodate every taste and budget. Other needs are met by 4 supermarkets, 5 banks, 2 drug stores, 5 gas stations, and dozens of shops for clothing, art and keepsakes.

You'll encounter historic Kalapawai market, a mainstay of Kailua since 1932, on your walk to the beach where you can stock up on drinks, sandwiches and sundries.

Our breezy windward side of Oahu is perfect for outdoor activities. On your way to Kailua beach stop at Kailua Sailboards and Kayaks to arrange kayak tours and rentals, windsurfing and kite surfing, snorkeling, surfing, and bicycling. Several public golf courses are near by, and hiking opportunities abound.

As our guest, you'll have complimentary use of a full-featured Garmin automotive GPS with 3-D maps and turn-by-turn voice directions including spoken street names.

There's lots of great stuff out there to see, do & eat. But getting to them can be a problem- because Oahu's roads can be plenty confusing.

To help, we provide you with printed lists of our favorite attractions and local restaurants, all of which we've programmed into the GPS.

Among the 43 attractions are Hanauma bay, Sunset beach, Diamond Head, Polynesian Cultural Center and the USS Arizona Memorial.

The restaurant list has 60 local eateries, and we've gathered menus for 36 of them for you to preview.

A printed quick- start guide for the GPS is provided to get you out and exploring in no time. Plus, the GPS has thousands of built- in destinations such as Banks & ATM's, gas stations, shopping, theaters and much more.

Check in time is 3pm. Check out time is 11 am.

Beautiful, Clean Property with Convenient Location

  • 5 of 5

Laurel's guest apartment was perfect for my boyfriend and I during our stay in Kailua. Laurel was very helpful and treated us with fresh fruit, water, and pastries upon arrival. She also provided beach towels and equipment which was very helpful since the apartment was close to both Kailua Beach and Lanikai Beach. The apartment itself was very clean and comfortable- the AC window unit provided us with a cool breeze and there was plenty of storage space for our things. The bathroom was also very large and well stocked with amenities for our use. I would recommend Laurel's place to anyone as it is a great value for the location! Mahalo Laurel!

Kailua Cozy

  • 5 of 5

Stayed 4 nights and would have loved to stay longer. Laurel made us feel at home; with fresh pineapple and bagels she had for us on arrival. Great reviews of Laurel’s place are spot on. She had everything we needed. Would add too that that there’s quite a nice collection of DVDs for evenings or rainy times. It was a little warmer than usual during our visit, so having the window AC kept us cool. Kailua Beach is beautiful and Laurel’s place was very convenient. We could walk or drive there with our beach stuff and park easily in the morning. Beach has lifeguard, restrooms with changing areas and showers. Very short walk from beach to a little market with a good deli for lunch at reasonable prices.

Great location,very clean and neat

  • 5 of 5

Two blocks from some of the best beaches in the world. This place is perfect for two people who want a quiet relaxing time near the beach. It is located in a nice neighborhood 1/2 mi. from the beach and 1.0 mi. from town. It is clean and comfortable. The pictures are accurate.

Perfect for Two

  • 5 of 5

Laurel's place was cozy, but perfect for the two of us. It was stocked with everything you could possibly need. I especially appreciated the shampoo/conditioner/body wash dispensers in the shower. And despite being a small kitchenette, my husband and I were able to make several meals using the microwave to help save some money on eating out. The beach is an easy 10 minute walk (which was perfect, as the parking lot at the beach always seemed full), and the walk to get shave ice is only 5 minutes. Laurel greeted us shortly after we arrived and was happy to show us where the beach gear and the laundry room was. She was present throughout our stay, but never overbearing, making her a great host. My only regret was that we couldn't stay longer! Staying in Kailua and Laurel's property was a great way to end our babymoon.

Beautiful days!

  • 5 of 5

We so enjoyed our 4 days at Laurel's home. Laurel, you are so kind-spirited and perfectly helpful. We did so much in our brief stay and can't wait to return. Every day was warm and breezy. Thank you for suggesting we see the moon-rise over Kailua Beach - it was beautiful! Buzz's was an awesome place to eat at and the silky sand at Kailua Beach (like stepping in flour my husband said!) made it his favourite beach of our whole vacation! Mahalo!!

Great place, great location! Owner was nice too!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here for a week. It was the perfect space for a couple, nicely appointed and in a great location. The highlight was waking up the first morning (after getting in very late due to flight delays) to see that the owner had supplied bagels and fresh fruit for our breakfast. It was such a nice touch to not have to rush out to go shopping our first morning and took away the stress we were feeling from coming in late. I would definitely recommend this place to friends and will stay here again if I'm back on Oahu.
