Restful, peaceful retreat.

  • 5 of 5

This is a super clean and comfortable room, close enough to the beach to walk over and watch the sun rise every morning. The neighborhood is very quiet and Kailua and Lanikai beaches are SO beautiful. Barbara is an extremely kind and hospitable B&B owner. There are amazing nearby hikes, Whole Foods and little shops and restaurants within a five-minute drive. I highly recommend.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Auntie Barbara's B&B! The beach is right around the corner and the room was all we needed! Kailua is a quiet residential town, perfect for a relaxing, peaceful retreat.

Excellent Location! Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

I rented the Kalama bedroom for 3 weeks. Barbara is just lovely- VERY accommodating & very knowledgeable about Oahu- the ideal hostess!! The unit was exactly as pictured- just perfect for my needs! It is less than a 10 minute walk to beautiful Kailua beach- and Barbara supplies beach chairs, beach towels, totes- everything you'd need! I would not hesitate to rent this property again!

Family of 4

  • 4 of 5

The rental was as pictured. Barbara was very nice and answered all our questions about the area. It is just a short walk to the beach with some snorkel gear and boogie boards provided. This side of the island is very green and tropical feeling. It is quiet and laid back, not like Honolulu. If you are looking for a family friendly, quiet location, close to the beautiful Kailua beach this is it! It was nice to have a large section of white sand beach to yourself without someone right next to you. We would come again and stay on the winward side of the island for sure. We saved $ by eating breakfast in the unit and packed our lunch. It was also nice to have a washer/dryer so we didn't have to pack as much clothes for 8 days. Thank you Barbara for your hospitality!

Owner's Response: We are so glad you had a great vacation. The Hiilani unit is ideal for families to spread out and relax. We try to make your stay as if you were visiting a "local" family. Please come again. Mahalo, Barbara

star rating misleading there are 2 properties

  • 1 of 5

There are two properties. We were in the small studio and it is in serious need of renovation and upkeep. The photos of the outside are misleading because they are of the owners backyard, right outside their sliding doors.

The ventilation in our unit was non-existent. The glass door was louvered, but the mechanism was broken so couldn't get air from there. The windows were covered with dark curtains and shears mounted on a wood pole so couldn't pull them aside to get air from the window. The doll house size air conditioner sounded like a small plane taking off, and it was mounted on the wall right next to the head of the bed.

The kitchenette consisted of a formica counter with a microwave and small refrigerator. No sink, you had to wash dishes in the bathroom sink. Two small wooden folding chairs and no table to eat at. It was so unpleasant in the room that we didn't stay there except to try to sleep. SO DISAPPOINTED IN THIS UNIT. We have reserved others at Homeaway with great results so we were stunned to find such a substandard unit on this website.

Owner's Response: Our vacation rental goal is to provide an enviroment for our guests that will help them have a relaxing vacation. We want them to love our islands as we do. We have a large and small unit. They are pictured on our website. Both units were totally renovated last September. We then had a professional photographer take pictures of the units and the yard. We invite our guests to enjoy their breakfast, lunch and dinner in our yard. We have 2 tables by the pool and one in the lanai for their use.We also provide a grill outside for those who would like to cook in the small unit. The large unit has a kitchen and its' own grill. The small unit does have a small AC because it is a small room. One of our guests suggested many years ago that we install shear curtins behind the drapes for more privacy.We appreciate the suggestions of our guests. The Kalama(sm) unit has a breakfast bar with a coffee maker, a microwave and toaster. We supply a small refigerator for the guests that wish to have cold drinks,etc. It is very unfortunate if we have a guest that is disappointed with their experience in our unit. We have had much positive feedback from guests in the Kalama unit and also the Hiilani unit. They have said, It's a great value for the price. We would hope to keep improving the units in any way possible in the future. Mahalo
