The perfect location for a Hawaii beach holiday
The perfect home for a family beach holiday - the cottage is clean and comfortable and is literally steps from the beach. Wonderfully hospitable hosts made us feel right at home.
We are delighted to hear that you enjoyed the cottage and the beach. Please come again!
Perfect Place to Stay, Again and Again and...
I have stayed here 4 times since April 2013. The cottage is everything you need in a vacation rental. It’s private, tastefully appointed, and clean. The full kitchen is well stocked with most everything you need. It was also nice to see that some staples left by previous guests were not cleaned out... salt, pepper, coffee filters and some condiments.
The cottage has several ceiling fans plus many windows that provide excellent ventilation. Three walls of each bedroom were mainly windows. There is not a need for air conditioning when the trades are blowing. Birds pleasantly begin to sing about 30 minutes before sunrise (which you will not want to miss on the beach.) The hosts (Susan and family) were always pleasant. Susan was exceptionally accommodating with assisting with receiving my oxygen prior to my arrival.. She also is a great nurse, providing first aid whenever I had a clumsy accident.
There is a large lanai off the living room. In back, there is clothesline, grill and shed (with a shared washer and dryer.) There is a large assortment of beach chairs and goodies including mats, and beach towels. We didn't use the grill as it wasn't set up near the cottage and seemed too large for us to move, but that was another opportunity to eat at Buzz’s in Lanikai. I never made use of the lovely pool because I am not a good swimmer. The Wi-Fi was a bit spotty, but not terrible. Since I am a former resident and have stayed here many times, sightseeing is not my priority, but the cottage is a short drive to most sights. A 25-30 minute drive to Pearl Harbor, the airport and Waikiki depending on time of day, route and traffic.
The private path to the beach is just steps away. Loved that we were just 2 minutes from the lovely Kailua Beach and a short block from the Kalapawai Market and Island Snow! I enjoyed the weekly Farmers Markets - near Long's on Thursday and Sunday at Kailua Elementary School in the parking lot. The cottage is in a very quiet neighborhood with friendly neighbors.
I definitely recommend Beachside in Paradise and would like to return again if they are able to legally rent for a shorter term. I miss being there. First time visitors will get whatever assistance needed for getting around, where to shop etc. As a returning visitor, my privacy was respected, but they were always available when needed.
A hui hou!
Home away from home
Staying in the cottage felt like being home. Because I am from Hawaii, I am extremely picky about location, and it just can't get any better than this. As others have mentioned, the beach is far enough away from the beach park to seem almost secluded, but still close enough to Kalapawai market and Island Snow shave ice to take a lunch break from swimming and sunning. The cottage has a well-equipped kitchen, so much so that we invited friends for brunch. Chairs, towels, wifi, all the comforts of home. Dick and Wanda are gracious hosts with a lovely family and made us feel welcome from the minute we got there. We are already looking at dates for next year to make sure we don't miss the opportunity to stay here again! Mahalo, Dick and Wanda, a hui hou!
Thank you so much, Dyan and Ken, for your kind words. We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay. We enjoyed having you, and look forward to your return!

Best vacation ever!!
This was the absolute best vacation! The cottage was PERFECT! The location was beyond perfect (beach AND shave ice just steps away??!). Even though you're only a block from Kailua beach park (busy on weekends), the part of the beach that the cottage gives access to is SO quiet and private! Even on the weekend we felt like we were on a secluded private beach! The pool was PERFECT for afternoon swims after lovely days at the beach. Susan was lovely and super accomodating. Our 4 and 2 year olds had the best time and were very sad to leave our "Hawaii home". We will definitely be back!
Cheers and Mahalo!
Thank you so much, Mina. We are sorry that we didn't get to meet you but, as always, Susan took fine care of our guests. We are pleased that you and your family enjoyed your stay, and hope that you will be able to return.

Could not have asked more from a vacation house. The weather could have been a little more accommodating but not the house or the hosts!
We look forward to your next visit with the Ohana!
Everything was perfect!!
We recently spent 5 wonderful days enjoying Dick and Wanda's "Beachside in Paradise", and that truly is what is was. From our warm greeting (and hugs from Wanda) until we checked out, our stay could not have been more perfect. Kailua Beach was absolutely beautiful, and as stated in other reviews, is only steps away. The facilities are excellent, from the covered lanai to the extremely comfortable beds. Dick was always there to answer all of our questions and gave us excellent tips to make our visit that much more enjoyable. The market and deli just down the street was an added treat (and very handy) for excellent breakfast and lunch sandwiches. We highly recommend "Beachside in Paradise" as an excellent destination for anyone's paradise vacation. You will not be disappointed. Chet, Karen, Dave and Margaret
Thank you so much, Chet, for your kind words. We enjoyed meeting you all and hope to welcome you to Paradise again some time.
Wanda and Dick
