Why Misty Martin chose Kailua
After traveling to more than 100 countries including expeditions to the North Pole, Antarctica, Africa and the Amazon finding the perfect place to vacation and relax was never an easy task for me. After numerous trips to Hawaii over the years I experienced a vacationers epiphany driving the Pali Highway from Honolulu to Kailua on a beautiful sunny day in September. I knew immediately that Kailua was a town that provided me and my family the thrill of an exotic destination with all the creature comforts that make traveling civilized. When I entered the private and gated confines of Kolea Estate I immediately feel in love with a comforting, calming, sprawling and secluded environment offered by this property. It is my wish to offer the traveler more than a rental home with this sweeping enclave to escape reality and to find comfort after exhilarating days on Kailua Beach, exploring the island of Oahu and tasting the colorful flavors of Hawaii. It became my goal to create an estate get-a-way that embraced outdoor living, privacy, and comfort for an intimate couple looking for a secluded paradise to a gathering place for families with children in need of a bonding space more conducive than a typical hotel room. Kolea Estate is developing into a retreat for travelers of all types who appreciate their own space to savor vacation as they want to experience vacation. I hope visitors to Kolea Estate and Kailua feel the mystical allure of Hawaii that exists beyond the stereotypical hotels of Waikiki.

Wonderful place for a large group
Our family of 13 stayed at this spacious and comfortable property; everyone had privacy while enjoying shared spaces. The kitchen is large enough for group cooking and dish-washing with a variety of appliances including a bread maker and rice cooker. The outdoor living area was a great place to gather when people came back from their island activities, watch the kids swim or hold a Cups or Farkle tournament. There were plenty of beach towels, chairs, coolers and other beach equipment available. Two sets of washer/dryers were helpful keeping beach towels fresh. If you have pre-K age children, you should know that the bunkroom has an exterior door that leads directly to the pool area...it was not a concern for our older children but it is a consideration. Misty responded to our questions and problems by text promptly.
Amazing House for a Large Group!
Great space and atmosphere - location amazing as it's right down the street from Kailua and Lanakai - two of the best beaches! Misty Martin very responsive and helpful if you needed anything - brought us extra cots because we needed them for kids to stay. (those are extra in total, but worth it for our time)
Nice property, great location..
Overall this is a nice property. The pool area could use some extended maintenance (chipped tiles around pool area and in pool itself). Advertising the property to sleep 18 is a stretch. There are beds for 14 and any more than that are sleeping on futons, air beds, etc. This was not fully explained when we rented. Unfortunately, the property manager was unable to meet us when we arrived, so we had a bit of a challenge trying to learn how the house operates. Even with all of this, we would rent again.
Thank you for your review. We are currently working with a company to replace the tiles on and around the pool. The home advertises to sleep up to 15. As guests inquire you do have the option to have more guests (not to exceed 18). But we always mention the home is only able to accommodate sleeping for 15 guests. Since your party came in at all different times and the first group that arrived got the full tour and explanation of how things worked etc. I am guessing you were not part of that group? My apologies for that. We are very thankful for any and all reviews as they let us know what we can do better. Thank you for staying with us!
Wonderful place to stay
Excellent space and facilities for several families or a large group. Very clean, modern and well furnished. Well stocked large kitchen and very spacious lanai for lounging and dining next to hot tub and warm large pool. Huge large screen TV in great room. Bedrooms are well separated and people can really spread out with their "own" areas. Good supply of outdoor toys. New outdoor grill. Entire large lot is walled and very private. Pictures very accurately describe premises. Quiet residential area and a short easy drive to excellent beaches and shopping. Kailua is a very nice city, and area is not crowded like Honolulu. Close to wide variety of beaches and activities. Management very friendly, responsive and helpful. 6 adults and 7 children all had separate areas and had a wonderful time at the house and in the area. Be sure to visit Manoa chocolate factory in Kailua. You can rely and trust this location and management. Definitely would return.
Huge outdoor area... but hot stay!!
A group of 10 friends stayed at this house for a week and really enjoyed the huge space this property offered. The most impressive area was the outdoor kitchen/porch/pool area. We spent most of our time out there. Having the huge lawn space was also a positive as we played lots of lawn games. The beds were comfortable, the kitchen has lots of cooking dishes, and lots of beach towels and beach gear were available by the owner.
The neighborhood location is great... Safe and easy to walk/run to the beach or grocery store. Great location for either Kailua Beach or Lanikai beach. It's about .8 miles from the house to Kailua Beach.
Unfortunately we stayed here during a week where there were no trade winds and it was about 90 degrees during the day... 83-85 degrees at night. With all the doors and windows open, the house and property had no breeze making it a bit unbearable... And I come from a humid and hot climate. The owner provides plenty of movable fans... No ceiling fans in the bedrooms. However, this week the fans did little to cool us off. The house was a bit of a sauna so we spent most of our time in the pool... An ice cold shower in the outdoor shower helped too.
Overall the stay was great and the property is really wonderful for large groups looking for huge outdoor space and pool!
Aloha and thank you for your review! We are happy that you enjoyed the property and are sorry that you stayed in Kailua when the Tradewinds decided to pause. I wish we could predict that and put it on our calendar. It happens 1-3 times during August to October and it does impact the temperature in the home. It is nice, as you said, that we have the amazing and large pool and outdoor kitchen area with plenty of ceiling fans.
Thank you for choosing Kolea Estate and sharing your review. All the best to you and your group of friends!
Blew me away! I had no idea this was so big and beautiful!
I had the opportunity and honor of staying at this home for an entire week. I saw the pictures online, but I had no idea that the place was so big and beautiful. When we drove up to the place the place didn't look all that impressive other than for the big wall and gate. Once we got beyond the gate I started to appreciate the size and magnitude of the property.
I had a chance to meet the lovely staff who keeps and maintains the property for the owner. These people work hard to do their best to give a wonderful vacation experience to the guest.
When I arrived we entered through the garage and kitchen. It was after a couple of days I realized that the official entrance to the home was through a calm, beautiful, and impressive Japanese garden. It is a shame that the Japanese garden is secluded on the side of the house. After I discovered the garden I made it a point to spend some private time in the garden everyday. If I were still doing yoga on a regular basis, this is where I would want to do it.
I was blown away with the amount of green grass and open space that this house offers in a neighborhood that has so many smaller lots and modest sized homes. You will be shocked when you see how much open space this place has for getting sun, playing games, cooking out, and relaxing without other people invading your privacy.
The room I slept in had a California King bed as well as another double bed in the loft area. I had a private bathroom with a shower. The room was able to be completely open with screen doors or no doors at all. I have never experienced such openness and loved it.
The pool was always cleaned and well maintained. The pool guy came once or twice during the week and we never had an issue at all. The hot tub was especially easy to operate and was great for my ailing ankle.
While we never cooked at home during our stay, we did bring food in a couple of times. The outside kitchen, eating area, and family room was perfect for our home time. One night we ate at the table and then played games in the family room until well after the sun went down.
If you stay in the rooms in the back house or long wing, you should know that there is a private TV room on the second floor that is absolutely perfect for escaping the rest of the clan if you desire. I enjoyed hanging in the private TV room and reading my book for an afternoon break.
I can't imagine a better place for a family like ours. We were able to have fun and connect.
The unique shops, boutiques and restaurants in Kailua can't be found elsewhere on the island. And nearby Lanikai beach (less than 1 mile away) is rated as one of the best beaches in the world! Sunrise there is spectacular!
