What makes this House unique
Kailua Beach Park is the best beach on the island! Perfect for sunning & relaxing, windsurfing, swimming or walking the beautiful 3 miles stretch of sandy beach. Lanikai Beach is just 2 minutes away, around the bend, and is perfect for young children as there is very little wave action. We love Kailua town, with it's many unique shops & boutiques, and an array of restaurants to suit every budget & taste.

Spacious and convenient but on a busy Kailua street
We planned a last minute trip to Oahu to see family so our rental options were limited. We were fortunate to find this place in Kailua. Overall, the house is very clean, well cared for (though a bit beat-up) and spacious. It has a big family room (pictured on VBRO) plus three roomy bedrooms and two bathrooms (with lots of towels etc.). The kitchen is clean and well equipped with nice cooking wear, dishes and appliances. The living room could use a few more reading lamps and the house more rugs to protect the white carpet covering much of its interior (even taking our shoes off, it was hard to keep clean during our rainy week there). We experienced a big rainstorm, which flooded one corner of the living room (the floor is now painted cement, not carpeted as shown in the picture). We mopped it up and Paulette, the property manager, reduced our cleaning fee. That shouldn't be a problem in good weather.
For those who are traffic-sensitive, beware that the house is located on Keolu Drive, which is a busy city street with light and heavy traffic throughout the day. It mostly quiets down by early evening. The house too is in a compact neighborhood with barking dogs etc. We played music to help overcome the noises and were gone much of time anyway. Still, once back for our daily adventures, we didn't have the same peace and quiet that we'd hoped for. Having said that, the property does provide very convenient access to local beaches, downtown Kailua and Oahu in general.
This Kailua home served our purposes, as it will with others families or large groups who are into beaches and exploration. Did we enjoy are stay? Yes, of course, it's Hawaii!! But we will plan ahead and look for places that are a little more off the beaten path on our next visit.
The house was exactly what we hoped it would be!
After a long day of traveling we arrived at the property to find a nice, spacious home ready to provide us a much needed good night sleep. The beds were super comfortable and there was plenty of extra blankets and pillows had we needed them. The house is close to shopping, great places to eat and one of the most beautiful beaches in the country! We stayed here for almost 2 weeks and although we did dine out often the home is certainly easy to cook or grill at. The home has a washer and dryer which was a life saver, as we were ale to keep up with clean towels and clothing. I had communicated with the homeowner several times prior to our trip and a few times during our trip and she could not have been more pleasant! I had a few questions and she was always available and willing to chat with me. This communication was important to me, as my family was traveling from Boston and Australia and I needed to know that once we arrived we would have no issues. I would suggest this home to any family looking for a clean, spacious and comfortable home close to everything you could possible need. Although shops and beach are close we suggest renting a car. Thank you to Paulette, our hostess for offering us a wonderful home to enjoy a wonderful family vacation.....we would rent this home again without a doubt should we make another trip to Hawaii!
Perfect for a family
As soon as we arrived to this beautiful house our kids ran right to the back yard and played on the gorgeous mango trees. We were able to unpack while they let out energy in a beautiful tropical backyard. We were thankful for a kitchen that was stocked with pans so we could make delicious home cooked meals. The space in the living areas were perfect for our family. We had plenty of room to play games and relax. We felt right at home. Can't wait to stay at this beautiful hale again!
Great location and lots of space
Really enjoyed our time here. We stayed for two months once we arrived in Hawaii prior to moving into our forever home. The house had everything we needed and the location was so convenient to the beach and shopping and dining.
We loved having you and our family as our guests at Keolu Hale! Welcome to the Islands, and I hope you are enjoying your new home!
Great trip loved how easy it was to get places from the house. We can't wait to do it again!
We had a great time! It was so nice after a long day of exploring to just be able to kick back and relax. The owner was awesome to work with, house was really nice, close to all kinds of stores. It is located in a great area half way between pretty much any location you wanted to go see. Very short drive to a very preyy beach.
We will be back!!
Hi Ronda & Family,
We enjoyed having you as our guests at Keolu Hale! So glad you had a wonderful stay and enjoyed our beautiful beach!
You were wonderful guests, and we would welcome you back at any time!
Excellent service and very cozy home!
From the start we were treated so well! When we left, we forgot my 3 year old's teddy bear, and they mailed it to us free of charge! You really feel like family here, while they maintained a welcoming professional relationship. Such a comfortable house! And so close to everything!
We loved having you and your family as our guests at Keolu Hale, and would welcome you back at any time!

Lanikai Beach is also just around the corner, which is a perfect beach for young children, as there is very little wave action. Kalapawai Market is our favorite stop on the way to the beach to pick up a delicious coffee, scones or muffins, and watch the sunrise. Or, if youre not an early riser, pick up a to go deli lunch made fresh and to order. Hike to the pillbox at the top of Lanikai for a great hike and a breathtaking view.

Kyaks, surfboards, windsurfing equipment, bikes, and anything you may need to make you vacation even more fun is available to rent at a variety of places right in Kailua. You will love Kailua!
