About Rachel

We have offered hospitality in Kailua for 27+ years and love to share our corner of paradise. Paul is an architect and Rachel is a landscape architect and planner. Our three children are young adults who are in and out but are living on the mainland enjoying adventures and working in Utah and California..

Rachel purchased this house in 1987

Why Rachel chose Kailua

We love Kailua. We've hosted guests to our island for 25+ years in Kailua. The location between magnificent white sandy beach and tiny Kailua Town is perfect. You can add the Ginger Studio to your booking to make a unit which can sleep a party of five.

What makes this house unique

Sheffield House's location is extremely convenient to walk to the beach, to Kailua town, or to Honolulu. An In the driveway parking space is definitely a plus. We have been offering vacation rental hospitality for over 30 years. A truly unique benefit is the black cocker spaniel, named Mai'le who is now 13 years old and our unofficial greeter. (Mai'le is a girl's name. A former Miss Hawaii was named Mai'le. It is also the name of a green vine which is used for leis for men in traditional Hawaiian weddings or the prom.) Another unique benefit is the absolutely gorgeous white and rainbow and shower trees in the Garden which blooms from June - September.

Along a major road which is easy to access and get to the beach or stores!

  • 5 of 5

This place was amazing! It was so clean and cute. When we arrived we knew where to park, there were signs welcoming us, and the key was in the door. The windows were open with lights on and Hawaiian music playing on the tv. The whole place was amazing and we wanted to take the shower home with us! Thank you again for your hospitality. It was truly amazing!

Perfect home base for our Hawaiian adventure!

  • 5 of 5

Sweet welcome note when we arrived, clean, bug free suite, cute puppy coming by for steak scraps.... it was perfect! Rachel and Paul have created a very private oasis in a convenient spot. Easy access to the best beach ever! Kailua town is awesome and a perfect home base to explore the whole island.

The suite had everything we needed. Loved the open air shower. Bed was not too hard or too soft and had plenty of pillows. The ceiling fans and ac made it easy to stay comfortable. Loved having an assigned parking spot and wifi. As some other reviews have mentioned, we did hear the folks in the room next door a couple times but, im sure they heard us and it wasn't a big deal.

All in all, we were super happy with our vacation and we didn't want to leave.

Highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

A great experience all-around. The location could not be better - within walking distance of most anything you'd want to see or go to in Kailua. Access to the beach is a short 5-minute walk away. The living space was lovely - much thought was put into the amenities and conveniences that would be appreciated. It is probably best if the two suites were on the same time table since it is possible to hear their movements and background noise of their conversations, but this is a small item of note. All around just terrific!

We are located between Kailua Beach and Kailua Town. There are tennis courts, basketball gym and outdoor courts and an Olympic sized pool (with a lifeguard) at the park only 13 houses toward Kailua town. Beautiful sandy Kailua beach is 10 houses in the other direction. A hike to the pillboxes (concrete lookout stations built in World War 2) over Lanikai gives a wonderful view of Kailua bay and the ocean.
