A great place at a great price!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this B&B and the owner came in and attached ties to the 20 pound flat screen tv (which we enjoyed) when I asked what he was doing he stated that a previous review had had some good recommendations and he was making sure that the TV’s were 100% safe (although how they weren’t previously I am unsure.)

Being curious I looked up the review and was dumbfounded and felt compelled to post my own review. First the B&B and location are excellent. Second it was impeccably clean for my stay. Third I think the renter who posted the “poor” review was extremely unfair.

Since the owner has cheerfully attended to the TV’s, the door mats and the sliding glass doors I only need to comment on the laundry and the dogs.

The washer and dryer that the owner makes available at NO CHARGE to his guests are very high quality "top of the line" LG appliances on platforms – nicer than what I have at home here in Atlanta. We found both the washer and dryer to be in absolute clean condition for our use. It was a nice extra to be able to do my laundry at the home rather than a Laundromat as I had had to us on previous stays in Kailua.

The dogs are among the most well trained and wonderful dogs I have ever been around. They are kept totally separate from the bed and breakfast and we asked to meet them, as I am a dog person, the owner took us to the backyard to play with them. They behave and actually played very well with my 15 month old granddaughter. I wouldn’t have any qualms at all about children being around the dogs.If you aren’t “dog people” don’t worry – there’s absolutely no need for any interaction with the dogs.

M final opinion – you won’t find nicer or better located 2 bedroom with living room and kitchenette unit anywhere in Kailua for the price. Book this place – you’ll be glad you did.

Love the Hawaii life

  • 4 of 5

This unit is just like what you see in the pictures. Leonard was easy to work with and willing to help in any way. There are many beach items, including fins, boogieboards, chairs, cooler, float tube etc. Not sure about an umbrella. The kitchen was great to have and we made breakfast and lunch everyday. Freezer works well for ice. Plenty of room in the fridge and nice cookware, silverware and utensils compared to some places.$50 on supplies at Walmart and you can eat for the week. We also used the BBQ one night for dinner. Target is close if you decide to do that - or forget anything else at home. Leonard's dogs are well trained and you will hardly see them. We ran into him walking one when we arrived and it was well behaved.

Things to know before you go:

1 The AC only cools the back bedroom. Understandably, Leonard doesn't want it running while you are out which means the front sitting room is never really cool. here are fans which help. Luckily it was only in the low 80's during our stay and we managed. If you are used to a hotel where you crank the air all day and come back to a cold room, this is not the one for you.

2 There are ants and other bugs. We had ants in the front bedroom 3 times. Leonard came and sprayed two days in a row and they finally gave up. Luckily only a few in the kitchen, but I was neurotic about wiping every crumb to keep them away. This would be harder with small children.

3 If you stay more than 3 days, bring a bar of soap. Bring your own shampoo too.

4 The dogs bark. While they do not bark for any prolonged periods, they do bark. They are loud barkers. We woke up to it every morning. Sometimes as early as 5:15am. They seem to bark periodically, like every 20-30 minutes for 5 to 20 barks. I guess this is related to the walk schedule as Leonard walks them one at a time and they greet the one returning. Our first night they barked on and off from about 9 - midnight. A few times the dogs got into scuffles too. It seems they spend time on the balcony, which sounds like it's right over your head, though it isn't. From here the dogs bark at passerby as well.

5 Your front door faces the door of the main house, only 10-15 feet away. There is one walkway to both, so the owners and their visitors walk right by. We were able to hear many goings on in the main house, TV, conversation, phone calls, dishes etc.

6 You arent going to walk to the beach

In all, nice place with more space and amenities than a hotel for a good price.

Great place to stay away from the hustle and bustle of Honolulu.

  • 4 of 5

Nice place to stay in Kailua if you have or rent a car. Mr. Couzjin is a good host who can be of great assistance, or simply leave you to your privacy, as you desire. The Tradewind Bungalow is a very good bargain for the budget conscious.

The description of the property needs editing

  • 4 of 5

Future guests should know that if the owner is present (he was not in residence most of the time of our stay} they might hear dog barking from the seven Rottweiler dogs the owner keeps on the property, I must add that the owner makes every attempt to stop the barking once it is heard.. I would further add that the owner makes every effort to respond to guests" needs. When we arrived there was a couple house-sitting in his residence and they responded immediately, when the shower door did not open/close properly, by making it operable..

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from 2 weeks in the lovely Tradewind Bungalo. It is in a great location on a quiet street with easy parking. The house is clean, in great condition and is well equipped. It is about a 3 minute drive to the beach or a 12 minute walk. There is plenty of parking at the beach on weekdays but on weekends I would walk. The house is also close to multiple stores and restaurants. There are plenty of beach toys, chairs and a cooler for your use. There is a washer and dryer available which was very handy. We had a greet time here and will stay again. Go ahead and stay here, you won't regret it.
