Two of Hawaii's most famous beaches are just a 7 minute walk or 1 minute drive. Kailua beach is 2 miles long, and features Flat Island which is a bird sanctuary that you can visit. Lanikai beach is rated one of the 10 most beautiful beaches in the world, yet uncrowded and has a 'local feel.'
Swimming, kayaking, stand-up paddling, kite surfing, snorkeling, windsurfing, boogie boarding and surfing are popular activities at Kailua and Lanikai beaches.
A relatively easy hike called the Pill Box hike is close by, with magnificent 360 degree views of the ocean and mountains. within 10 minutes drive is either the hike to the top of Olomana Mountain ( called the Matterhorn of Hawaii) and the tropical rainforest hike to Maunaiwili falls.
We're just a five minute drive to Kailua where you can enjoy family and fine dining, and shopping Hawaiian relaxed style in the many contemporary shops.
Waikiki and Honolulu are 40 minutes away, for cultural events, museums, night life, endless restaurants and entertainment. Waikiki is a great place to learn to surf, and take ocean tours.
The North shore a beautiful 1+1/4 hour drive through mountains and pineapple farmland, is famous for world class surfing, botanical gardens, and ancient Hawaiian sites.
The Polynesian cultural center is just 45 minutes away for a day of experiencing a variety of island cultures from hula to fire dancing.
Whatever your interests, you can plan day trips and easily return to your private, quiet and romantic 'bird nest' hide-away.

very pleasant accommodations
enjoyed my stay, very peaceful, breezy, quiet and comfortable. beautiful mountain views
We really enjoyed our stay. The place itself was perfect for our needs and close enough to the beach. It was clean, comfortable and having the balcony was an added bonus where we could enjoy the beautiful scenery. Our hosts, Dan and Diane, were so friendly and accommodating and it was a pleasure to meet and talk with them both.
The only things to note would be the noise of early morning mowing of the golf course nearby and the brightness of the suite which could a disturbance to some for sleeping in in the mornings.
Overall, this was a perfect home away from home and we'd definitely return!

Wonderful corner do Oahu, studio made much more spacious by walk in closet with room to stash open suitcases, gorgeous lanai view of golf course and mountains. Would stay again.
Best view in Kailua. Great value
The owners were really helpful and great people. Wonderful little place with a view that never gets old. .5 mile from the beaches and tons of restaurants. Short drive to Honolulu. Thanks so much for the courtesy of staying at your place.
Comfortable, fabulous view, great location
The hosts were gracious and helpful, we woke up each morning to a spectacular view of the mountains, and the location was great: easy access to all major roads, wonderful beaches just blocks away, lots of good restaurants in Kailua and a warm small town feel, even though we could find everything we needed in town. The sunrises and sunsets won't be forgotten.
Wonderful quiet neighborhood with easy pleasant walking to beaches, and dining.
The owners are super helpful and kind. We got great advice on hiking and enjoyed the beaches and beach town feel (after noisy Honolulu). Clean apartment, beautiful views, plenty of space and lots of thoughtful little extras. Would come again and send friends!
