Exeptionally nice retreat close to the beach

  • 5 of 5

I am writing this review on our last evening in Oahu, sitting on the Lanai of Leonard's property.

We arrived late which was not a problem at all. The amenities of the appartment were just as discribed, we didn't miss anything and everything was working properly.

Leonard welcomed us the other morning and encouraged us to approach him whenever we would encounter any trouble, which we did not have. The property is conveniently located in a quiet and safe residential area, you could easily walk to the very nice nearby beach. To get food or for the nearest restaurants (there are plenty and good ones), a car is advisable, parking is on the street, but there is plenty of room, so not a problem.

Everything you need for an entire beach day (including a large cooler) is provided.

Ever since we don't really have any points of criticism, we'd like to address several things that had been brought up in previous reviews:

Yes, Leonard does have dogs (seven Rottweilers), however, you wouldn't be able to tell unless you knew. They do bark occasionally, but surprisingly little for such large dogs. They are kept separately from the unit, and I've never actually seen them without Leonard on their side. And it is definetly NOT true, that you'd risk stepping into what they leave behind... in fact, the property is very clean and well-kept.

The washer/dryer are easily accessable and they are quite new models and well-kept and very clean. Leonard even provides the detergent... what more could you ask for??

The fact, that only the bedroom is equipped with an A/C is not really an issue, the place feels very airy and we didn't turn on the A/C much at all.

Owner's Response: Thank you Marcus for your complimentary review. I am glad that our rooms were to your satisfaction. For visitors that have never been to Kailua, it is one of the nicest neighborhoods in Hawaii especially when you consider Kailua Beach. Not only is it one of the nicest beaches in Hawaii, but also one of the safest. There are no large waves or rip tide currents ever affecting any part of Kailua Bay or Beach. Kailua Town also has a wide variety of stores and restaurants. I wold also like to thank you regarding your review of my dogs. The only time, my guests are likely to see any of my Rottweilers is when I take each of them, one at a time, for their late afternoon walk. I strongly feel that walking any dog is part of being a responsible dog owner. When they are not being walked, they are kept in large 10 feet by 10 feet kennels in the backyard. I have three fences or walls keeping them from the right side of the home and three fences on the left side of the home as well. These multiple gates and fences are designed not so much to keep my dogs away from people but to keep people away from my dogs. I obviously do not want any of my pets to become lost or stolen as they are quite valuable. If my dogs do have a fault, it is that they are too friendly and trusting. As I have mentioned before, all seven of my Rottweilers are top AKC Show Dogs who have won numerous show ribbons and titles. I do have quite a few guests that ask specifically to see them to take pictures. Again, Marcus, Thank you for staying with us. Aloha from Kailua, Hawaii PS: For you dog lovers out there, my pets are not kept in kennels around the clock. They spend the day enjoying the freedom of a large very secured yard and are kenneled only at night. Thank you again.

We had a great time!

  • 5 of 5

I would definitely stay here again. Leonard was welcoming and the neighborhood was nice. It was walking distance to Kailua beach which was nice. And there were lots of beach toys for us to use which was a huge bonus. Has all the amenities you need for traveling with a family and having a relaxing time.

Good space in quiet neighborhood - new kitchenette

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in February with our two friends - 4 of us in total. The rooms were clean and spacious. Occasionally the dogs would bark when you enter your front door but its brief and sometimes in the morning. We were there in February when the weather was cooler so the temperature of the unit was fine. The location is good - a short drive to either of the beaches and less than 5 min drive to town center which had everything!

It's also only a half hour drive to Honolulu through a beautiful scenic highway!

Lots of activities and great eats on this island easily accessible. It's so nice to be away from the tourist crowds of Waikiki!

Leonard was very nice and accommodating.

Clean and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Leonard is very accommodating and his place was perfect for our group of three. The dogs are very sweet, if you have the opportunity to meet them. And yes, they do bark...sometimes - when we arrived they didn’t even make a sound. Leonard has provided everything you need in the kitchen, which is very clean, along with nice towels and linens. Leonard’s place is close to the local store, Kalapawai Market, our morning hangout. Enjoy...we did.
