Guestbook comments from the manager

We spent a fabulous week in this spectacular house.

It met and exceeded all of our expectations. The view was breath

taking! The house is so comfortable and inviting. We slept with the

windows open and the sound of the waves crashing the shore.

The location was exceptional - close to the beautiful sandy beaches

in Kailua, easy drive to Honolulu and North Shore. Everything we

needed from beach towels/toys, pool toys to spices/utensils in the

kitchen were on hand. Laura with Trinity was so helpful and

responsive. We can not wait to return!!! To the owners... Mahalo for

sharing your beautiful home!

Peaceful Oasis

  • 5 of 5

We REALLY enjoyed staying here. From the moment we arrived, we knew we were in good hands. Roman walked us through the house to explain everything to us. Right next to a welcome basket of fruit and coffee, there was a detailed notebook that included answers to any questions we might have. Roman was extremely responsive to our texts for restaurant suggestions and some house questions. While we were there, the microwave motor burned out. Roman replaced it THAT evening.

Front Yard: Just right! We used the pool every day. It's not deep, which is perfect for our kids who are learning to swim. It's also protected from the windy beach since it is in front of the house and surrounded by the garage and a fence. (It does get VERY windy here.) The garage is stocked full of pool floats/noodles, as well as beach gear like chairs and bikes. We also used the new BBQ a couple of times.

Upstairs: I think my favorite part of the house was upstairs with the expansive kitchen and the peaceful view overlooking the ocean. The kitchen is stocked with all of the essentials. The furniture is just right. Classy yet comfortable.

Bedrooms: Details like alarm clocks with USB ports and electric sockets in them in every room is an example of how well thought-out this place is. The master bed was VERY comfortable.

The only issue we had was with the TV. We had a hard time figuring out how to switch over to Netflix. That is one thing the binder of information did not cover.

Neighborhood: Staying in Kailua felt more like staying where residents stay as opposed to just tourists. It was a side of Hawaii we hadn't experienced and we really enjoyed it.

Minor suggestions:

We recommend updating to a coded entry or at least an updated lockbox.

A Keurig coffee pot would be great! Much easier to use, and everyone gets the coffee/tea they want.

Overall, it was JUST what we wanted. I just wish we could have stayed longer. Well worth it!

Absolutely stunning home and location. The constant sound of the waves was instant relaxation!

  • 5 of 5

Our family thoroughly enjoyed our week in paradise! The house was well equipped with everything you could need. The house was spacious so everyone had their own space to read, watch TV, sit by the pool, lounge on the deck by the crashing waves or just stare out the huge expanse of windows at the ocean. Our only complaint was that the air conditioning upstairs struggled to keep things cool and dry and the lack of an AC in the tv room on the first floor meant it was a bit warm at times (even when the windows and screen door was open tonletnin the breeze). The bedrooms, however, were extremly cool and comfortable for a sound sleep! We enjoyed many good restaurants in the neighborhood, but weren’t too far from Waikii and other activities on the Island. I’ve been to Oahu many, many times, but never on the east side. It is THE only place to be on this island! Mahalo for a wonderful vacation.

Owner's Response: Sadly, the tradewinds haven't been blowing much in the past few weeks and it has placed a bit too much stress on the upstairs AC. We're calling in the AC repair company to see what can be done to immediately improve it's performance I'm so glad to hear that you enjoyed the windward side of the island. Please come back again! July 3rd - we've added freon to A/C unit upstairs and it seems to have resolved the problem.

Absolutely Stunning!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had the most wonderful stay in this beautiful Kailua home. It was clean, spacious, and very well decorated. One of our favorite things to do was to sit on the couch right next to the windows and feel the ocean breeze on our face. It was fabulous. The kids loved swimming in the pool and we loved sitting on the peaceful lenai. The beds were comfortable and there were plenty of towels. They also provided beach towels and chairs in the garage along with a cooler which was so nice for those beach days. The kids loved walking along the beach in back of the house and finding crabs in the lava rock. There was so much to discover. Leanne was helpful whenever we needed anything. And Alejandro the gardener even cut down some coconuts for us. We felt so welcomed! We should definitely stay here again!

Fantastic Views

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house and really enjoyed our stay. The views are stunning and the house is very comfortable and clean. There are only two minor items I would suggest as improvements -- the grill is very rusted (sea water) and could be replaced, and the coffee maker sometimes spilled over because the lid doesn't fit properly. Otherwise, our stay was perfect.

I definitely recommend this property and hope to visit again.

Owner's Response: Mahalo for your suggestions. Yes, the grill (probably 7th one in the last 12 years) will be replaced soon. Unfortunately, they just don't last very long out by the ocean. Please do come back and visit with us again. NOTE : May 30th - a new BBQ gas grill was just purchased today for all visitors to use. Thanks again for the suggestion.

Our own personal paradise!

  • 5 of 5

It had been five long years since our last vacation. We needed to get away from our daily grind, relax and recharge. Kaimalino Kai was perfect. It was truly a wonderful place to stay and so very hard to leave. It was a dream! The house is beautiful and well kept, as the surf and the sea can certainly take a toll. The garden was beautiful and mostly private due to the foliage. You will have to contend with leaves in the pool, but it doesn’t take long to scoop them out. We have already recommended this property to our friends and we can’t wait to come back! Everything you need is in close proximity to the house and it is a short drive or bike ride to Kailua beach. Kailua town is full of fun shops and fun eats. Above all, the views from the kitchen and living room upstairs - unbelievable! They took our breath away. Every night we would sit and look out at the Pacific until dark and we could no longer take it in. If you are looking for a place and need some time in your own personal paradise, this property is for you!
