About the property

1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, full kitchen, A/C, 2 bikes & kayak, sleeps 3

Aloha, come and relax at our tropical Kailua home located in one of Kailua's finest neighborhoods. Kailua Beach hale is located across the street from the beach access (150 feet to the access and about 700 feet to the waters edge) to a quiet sandy section of Kailua beach. It is a great spot for boogie boarding and snorkeling. Use the kayak, boogie boards and snorkel gear to cruise Kailua bay. Towels and beach chairs provided. We also have two bikes for you to explore the area, just a mile to Kailua town. The hale has an open air design, with high ceilings and plenty of windows. The wall dividing the living room and the bedroom does not reach the ceiling as it is a high domed ceiling. It has a modern kitchen with dishwasher and a washer/dryer in the bathroom. Enjoy your coffee in a tropical garden area with comfortable chairs and patio table. We have just built a beautiful rock waterfall and pond that is wonderful to listen to while relaxing. The living room has a flat screen TV and DVD player with Cable TV, and free WiFi internet available. The living room also has a single size bench seat that can be used as a bed for 1 smaller person. A playpen is available for little ones. No sofabed. The unit has a common wall with the main house but against a storage area so you have complete privacy without feeling like you have a neighbor. You entrance and yard are on a separate street from the main house giving the cottage a feel of being on its own. Kailua is great for snorkeling, kayaking, biking, swimming, diving, windsurfing, boogie boarding, surfing, paragliding or enjoying a good book. The property is very private, fully gated and has 1 parking space and a private entrance. Being close to a popular beach you can hear some car noises during the day, although the beach is sparsley populated compared to Waikiki.

Kailua beach is one of the most beautiful beaches in Hawaii. It has something for everyone. Kailua town has great restaurants, lots of shopping and is away from the Waikiki crowds. There are plenty of supermarkets close by for groceries. Our Kailua hale is conveniently located to enjoy all that Kailua has to offer.

Perfect for us!

  • 5 of 5

We are so glad we chose this round house to stay in. We were only on Oahu 5 days, and we still found ourselves calling it "home." The house itself is cute, clean, and comfortable. It felt roomy with just the two of us. And it's location is perfect--just a half block from a very quiet (but beautiful!) beach and a short bike or car ride from downtown Kailua. We found it had everything we needed--beach towels, a fully outfitted kitchen, a washer/dryer, snorkling gear (we didn't have to rent our own!), bikes, guidebooks to Oahu, etc. And we LOVED the garden! It felt so private. Think lots of tropical plants, a water feature (with fish!), and a private gate. We chose to stay in for several meals just so we could eat on our patio table and enjoy the space.

Lisa and Brett are lovely and generous hosts, too. They were so warm and welcoming, and Brett had great advice the first night when we were jet lagged and had questions about how best to spend our time on the island. At the same time, they were not intrusive at all, and we totally had our own space.

We did learn the hard way that when we were gone all day, we should leave the windows open to catch the breeze. But the AC was efficient for cooling us down. Plus, there were tons of fans and the garden was a great alternative hang out spot while the AC was doing its work.

We didn't want to leave. If we're ever back in Oahu, we'd rent this spot again in a heartbeat!

Super place. All the toys included. Walk to beach is literally across the street. Would recommend for 2 people or 2 with small child. Might need more space with older kids. Couldn’t have been easier!

Clean, Bright, Tropical Hale

  • 5 of 5

This lovely hale is well-located in Kailua to enjoy a short walk to the beach or a bike ride to town. It is a bright and spacious studio layout with the bed separated from the main living area by a partial wall. There are lots of opening windows (all screened, so no worries about bugs) that allow for a cooling breeze. The hale has its own private garden area, large enough for a large water feature, BBQ, table with 4 chairs, 2 lounge chairs, and kayaks. There are also beach chairs, mats, boogie boards, and snorkel equipment available. The hosts, Lisa & Brett were very welcoming, kind, and professional, and it was a pleasure staying at their lovely hale. Mahalo!

Small and nice

  • 5 of 5

The accommodation was very clean and we felt very comfortable. It was very well equipped and it had everything you need.

The beach is directly across the street and in the garden there is a lot of equipment for the beach.

We can only recommend this property and would spend our holidays there again.
