Private charming upstairs Cottage!
We have been welcoming guests for over 17 years and after closing for one year to renovate, we now have a brand new charming cottage located at tree level with peek a boo views to Kailua Bay. Located down a private BEACH SIDE lane (this means you don't have to cross any streets to get to the beach!) , we are only 2 houses from Kailua Beach; you can fall asleep to the sound of the waves. Our lane has a private gated access to the beach for residents and their guests only.
We welcome back our returning guests and new guests! Our private and secure 1 bedroom 1 bath cottage is a gem!!! Ocean breezes flow freely in our tree level rental. A cozy covered outdoor sitting deck (with ocean view and pretty sunrise skies), living room, bedroom, washer/dryer, and well equipped kitchen all make for a most comfortable stay. A full-sized refrigerator, Keurig coffee maker, French Press, large built in microwave, toaster, electric kettle, coffee grinder, 2 burner induction cooktop and Calphalon cookware make eating-in easy.
We pride ourselves in providing a clean rental (as a quasi-germaphobe!) and wash all blankets and bedspreads (as well as all used linens and towels) and completely disinfect all sinks, shower, toilet, counters, etc between guests visits.
The quality queen bed is the most comfortable bed at our home (!) with high thread count quality Egyptian cotton sheets with a temperature control memory foam topper makes for a good night's sleep. We provide 2 "My Pillows" (google that) as well as 2 Memory foam Keep cool pillows. Washer & Dryer in cottage (detergent and dryer sheets provided).
There is a 60” HD TV with DIRECT TV in the living area, and a WiFi speaker (for your iPod, iPad, smart phone, etc) for you to enjoy.
Come spend your vacation here. Easy access to major attractions. Whether you spend the day sightseeing or just relaxing at the beach, our comfortable private cottage WELCOMES YOU HOME EACH DAY. The cottage was designed to capture the tropical breezes from all directions plus there are quiet yet strong ceiling fans. Being at tree level nothing blocks the breezes.
Provided for your use: A welcome basket with fresh island fruit and various treats, coffee, tea, sugar, half & half, bath soap, dish soap, laundry soap, shampoo, blow dryer, beach towels, beach umbrella, beach chairs, boogie boards, shopping bags (Oahu is 'plastic free'), iron & ironing board & cooler.
If coming to surf, leave your boards at home and save on extra baggage fees. Use SURF BRUDDAHS who deliver (& pick up) boards free...top of the line boards. From beginners to serious surfing, these boards are awesome.

I was raised in Kailua and my family goes back numerous generations on the island. After college and graduate school at the University of Colorado in Boulder we knew we wanted to raise our family in my hometown of Kailua. We made this our family home where we enjoyed raising our children. We moved back in 1983. Our (now grown) children (and grandchild) as well as their friends have all enjoyed the laid back lifestyle and all the activities Kailua Beach has to offer due to it's very close proximity to our home.
Why Susu chose Kailua
Location, location, location! I grew up a mile down the road and my siblings and their families all settled back in the same area after college & grad schools on the mainland. Great being close to family!
What makes this Apartment unique
Our very private beach-side lane with a locked beach access for 'lane residents only' is definitely a plus. No street to cross to get to the beach! So come and enjoy SHOREBREAK.

The best VRBO ever!
SuSu and Greg provided a perfect spot to stay in Kailua. They were kind and generous, the perfect hosts. The home is like new, light & bright.They thought of and provided everything we could have possibly needed and more. We were just a few steps from the beach. This is the place we will come back too often.
Very Sweet Cottage
Cute unit was great for our 4 night stay in Kailua. Nice location with the beach just a couple houses down from a private beach access point. We had rainy weather which was disappointing, and meant we didn't use the beach chairs or boogie boards, but it was nice to know they were there. Susu's book of tips was helpful, and we enjoyed the Thai restaurant she recommended.
Aloha K&J - Thank you for staying here and we wish the weather cooperated. We hope you had sun in Waikiki for the second part of your trip :) Go Broncos!
Perfect Kailua Beach getaway
We loved our stay at the this super clean and charming cottage. The owners have thought of every convenience for your stay. The location is perfect and we loved walking the beach down to the Kalapawai market for our morning coffee. We tackled a kayak to the Mokes and the location was the perfect homebase for exploration of the rest of Oahu!
Thank you C&P for your positive review! I pride myself on the cleanliness part so happy that you noticed :) We are glad that you made it out to the Mokes!!! Hope there was a lot of sunshine on Maui for you to enjoy.
Great place, Great location, Great host
Stay here if you can. It’s close to perfect. Great style, comfortable, three houses away from what we believe to be the best beach in Hawaii.
Thank you C & L for staying here for your extended stay. It was nice visiting with you - such a delightful couple. We are glad you enjoyed your time here. Enjoy the rest of your vacation and safe travels home.
We loved the ever so bright cottage that has been very so recently been updated. Very cozy and bright. Loved the windows. All the gear was available and so close to the beach. The only thing that made it a 4 and not 5 is that it rained and was cloudy every day so we did not get in the water. Nothing to do with where we stayed. Susu and Greg were very helpful and friendly. Would stay again for sure.
Thank you so much for staying here! Sorry the weather did not cooperate :( I think the 2nd part of your trip there was sunshine :) and the flash flood warnings didnt affect your vacation. Lovely meeting you both and we hope you will back for some bright skies and blue waters!
My husband and I stayed here to celebrate our 10 year anniversary. The suite was perfect! It was very clean, newly remodeled with beautiful finishes and decor, and the area and access to the beach couldn't be beat! Susu and Greg were the best hosts, they had everything we could have needed for the beach and in the apartment, a really nice folder with all of their top recommendations for the area, they were extremely nice to work with, and so accessible if we needed anything (which we really didn’t, because everything was perfect!) We would definitely come back to Shorebreak and highly recommend it! Mahalo Susu and Greg for sharing your wonderful space with us!
Thank you so much for choosing to stay at our upstairs cottage for your 10th anniversary celebration! Wishing you many more years of love and happiness :) We look forward to seeing you here again!
