Stunningly gorgeous setting! Great place to stay - has everything you need and friendly owners too!

  • 5 of 5

Owners are so warm and generous with tips to local hikes, restaurants, maps etc. The place is perfect studio apartment for a couple -- ours was a 50th birthday celebration trip for just husband and wife. The kitchen was great -- especially the icemaker for filling our little cooler and we used the washer and dryer several times. Thanks to owners for having beach chairs and beach towels and extra bath towels for our use. The little book they made up of maps and local kayak companies numbers etc was a sweet touch. Loved catching sunrise every morning from the beach that is just outside the door. We chose this location for proximity to Lanikai beach and found the even closer Kailua Beach Park just as lovely -- same impossibly blue water. We enjoyed driving over to Hanauma Bay one day and driving up to the Pali lookout as well. And the little hike to the pillboxes over Lanikai beach is steep STEEP! but soo worth it. Bring your camera for amazing panoramic views. For dinner, we loved the Thai place and the Crepe place was really delicious (esp the Healthy Alternative crepe with strawberries, bananas, granola, yogurt and honey. Yummo!) We had a great time. This was the perfect place to stay -- has everything you need with the ocean right there and generous hosts who were available when we needed them but we had plenty of privacy as well. Thanks for everything. We will definitely stay with you when we come again. Warmest wishes, Karen and Blair

Great location, clean and lovely!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently spent 11 days in Herb and Shari's rental on Kailua beach. We could not have been more comfortable, and we were so taken with the beauty of the beach. The location was fabulous, close to our fav places to eat, and to all the great sites on the island. We loved not being in the hustle and bustle of Honolulu, and yet close enough to drive in for restaurants and shopping. It was truly a relaxing time for us, and met our expectations.

The unit is so clean, with every convenience we needed. Spacious too. Shari, thank you for the guava jelly, it was delicious!

Perfect Hideaway at the best location on Kailua beach . We enjoyed our morning walks on the beach . Shari and Herb were great hosts being long time local residents. This is so much better than staying in the hustle and bustle of town or Waikiki ! Great spot if you are into Windsurfing or Kitesurfing . We are looking forward to our next get away ! Aloha

This was by far the best rental out there. Beautiful waterfront without all the crowds of other nearby beaches. The apartment was perfect for my mom and I with all the little extras that you could think of. We couldn't have been more comfortable. Very close to Kailua town for everything else you may need. The owners have thought of everything in this apartment. The ice maker in the fridge was an added bonus. Enjoyed our conversations with the owner Sherri and she was very helpful giving us information about the area. Would highly recommend this rental! Thanks again Sherri!!
