Tropical paradise in Kailua

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay here at Tropical Hale and hope to return again in the future. The accommodations are amazing. The interior design is magazine worthy while being comfortable, the space feels much larger than it really is, and the kitchenette is such a wonderful bonus. The refrigerator is a good size, and we were able to cook all kinds of things from simple egg breakfasts to seared Ahi dinners. Everything is as advertised in the suite. It is attached to the main house, but has a private entrance and feels completely separate.

The location is great, with an easy walk to one of the most beautiful beaches on the island or to town with shopping and dining. We also made trips to the North Shore and Honolulu; nothing felt too far away but you will probably want a car. We really like the pace of life in Kailua as compared to the city, and for being a small town it has everything you could need from local grocery stores to Target and Whole Foods, not to mention some great restaurants and coffee shops. Having all this convenience nearby and still waking up to the tropical birds is such a treat!

The best part of the stay are the hosts though. Sally is welcoming and thoughtful, and very easy to communicate with both before and during your stay. She makes herself readily available to you while still giving you the privacy you want and expect on your vacation. If you like dogs, then Dante is sure to become a fast friend and you will look forward to his daily rounds.

If you are looking for a relaxing Hawaiian vacation on Oahu, look no further than Tropical Hale.

Best VRBO I've ever had the privilege to stay in

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this VRBO exceeded our expectations. It was very clean, decorated beautifully with a Hawaiian flare and was very comfortable. The owner was so gracious making sure we had everything we needed. Her large black standard poodle, Dante, added to our whole experience there. We were greeted every morning by this magnificent dog. We were so fortunate to find this place and will definitely stay there again. And, above all, we made a new friend.

Great title

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place to stay. It was quiet and the pool was also wonderful. The place was very nice and comfortable. A great location to not have to stay in Waikiki. The Host was an absolutely wonderful person and very accommodating. Thanks for a great stay.
