Overview

About the property

An easy walk to the beach -- newly remodeled big one-bedroom with a private yard

Unlike other listings at a similar price, this newly remodeled addition to our house is private, peaceful, and spacious. The perfect place for a couple or a small family looking to get away from it all! With an all-new kitchen and living area and its own private yard, this beautiful "ohana" residence is the perfect getaway. Please check out our reviews to see how much our guests have enjoyed this home away from home.

The large upstairs bedroom is cool and breezy, with two king beds; enjoy a relaxing evening or a morning coffee on the balcony, and take in the view of the Ko'olau Mountains.

The downstairs was fully remodeled in 2012. The new new kitchen and living room open onto a private fenced yard with an outdoor breakfast table nestled in the shade of the plumeria tree.

This rental is an easy walk to the beach: it is 5 minutes or less to both Kailua and Lanikai beaches, the jewels of the Windward side of Oahu.

The house is in a quiet neighborhood, away from the vehicle and foot traffic in other parts of the Kailua area. Just down the street, walking distance from the house, is Buzz's Grill - the neighborhood watering hole and an excellent place for dinner. Kalapawai Market is just a little way further down the street - a local hangout, where you can get a cup of coffee and the newspaper, or have breakfast or lunch. Bob's Pizza and Island Snow (your go-to spot for shave ice) are right there, too.

In Kailua Town proper you'll find a new (and quite vibrant) Whole Foods, as well as many different restaurants, including Japanese, Mexican, and Italian food. There's also a great farmers' market every Thursday evening, where local farmers sell fresh produce and a series of food stands provides the best Oahu has to offer.

This rental provides you with peace and privacy, and great access to a world-class beach. Residents and visitors alike love the easy-going spirit of this area.

You can enjoy nearby golfing, snorkeling, kite-surfing, sailing, and boogie-boarding, or just hang out on the beach. And of course just a short drive away you will find world-class surfing and diving; now might be the time to take that surfing lesson! The Ko'olau Mountains offer beautiful hikes through lush forests.

Our family loves living here, and you will love it here too. We look forward to answering any questions you might have, and to meeting you someday, too.

About Jonathan and Jenny

We moved to Oahu from the mainland six years ago, and we quickly fell in love with Kailua. The small-town feel of the place, the welcome we received from those we met here, and the lovely beaches all just made us feel so at home.

Jonathan and Jenny purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Jonathan and Jenny chose Kailua

We chose this property because it was beautiful, convenient, and private. The neighborhood is safe, and we liked how green it is - the landscape really stands out here.

What makes this apartment unique

The house is a classic Hawaiian home - mid-century modern with a lovely yard. The rental unit is an 'Ohana' apartment - a place for friends and family to stay and visit. It was built more recently and has a great feel, too. The previous owners of this house used to live on the Ohana side - they loved the upper veranda, and would sit out there every night watching the sun set over the Ko'olaus.

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

This place was wonderful!

My husband and I took our 6 month old to Hawaii and stayed in Kailua. It was less than a 5min walk to Kailua beach.

It was very spacious with everything you might need. Two king size beds upstairs in a very open floor plan. The owner also provided a pack n play for my baby and had it all set up when we arrived! Downstairs there's a kitchen and bathroom. There's a private fenced yard which is perfect if you're traveling with kiddos. They have a stand up paddle board and other beach equipment you can use. We will definitely be staying there when we return to Oahu.

The only cons about the space was that it was a bit bright in the bedroom which was only a problem because I had a baby there and he needs to sleep with blackout curtains.

This place is located near lanikai beach and tons of stores. Perfect location

Very comfortable

  • 5 of 5

My adult daughter and I stayed at this property and it was great. Quiet area but able to walk to beach (5 - 10 mins) and the wonderful Kalapawai Market etc within 15 minutes. Very large bedroom upstairs with two huge beds in it. Lovely lanai off the bedroom with views to the mountains. Also a private garden downstairs.

Very peaceful, well appointed property.

Perfect for Family of Four

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for three nights while visiting friends in Kailua. It was perfect for our on-the-go family of four (two teenage boys). The large beds we a huge plus, and the view of the mountains from the bedroom was beautiful. The weather was unusually hot while we were there, but the unit's layout is very airy, and the air conditioning was a nice luxury after a long, hot day. We easily walked to the beach (Kailua and Lanikai) every day, and although we didn't use the beach equipment, we noticed there was plenty provided by the owners. We also walked to Buzz's, a must for a nice dinner, and hit Kalapawai market for coffee and breakfast every morning (an easy walk, but we drove in order to maximize our day). In fairness, we didn't cook, so I can't speak to the functionality of the kitchen, but while not a "cook's kitchen," it certainly seemed to have everything you would need if you were so inclined. The downstairs (living room, kitchen and bathroom) was not nearly as light and airy as the upstairs, so we spend most of our time upstairs and on the top balcony. I only wish we had more time in Kailua this trip. We would happily stay here again.

Wonderful trip

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our visit to Kailua. My husband and I spent 7 nights here and had a very relaxing and fun trip. The apartment was clean and had everything we needed. We really liked the location. Kailua is not as crowded and the traffic is not as bad as in Honolulu. We walked to the market just about every morning for breakfast and we walked to the beach too. There are several nice restaurants in town. The only downside that we saw to the apartment is that the bedroom is upstairs and the only bathroom is downstairs. The deck is nice upstairs and there is a pretty big yard downstairs. We would definitely stay here again.

Kailua or Lanikai
Car: recommended

You are SO CLOSE to the beach. Walk to Kailua or Lanikai, the most beautiful beaches on Oahu. Take a stroll on the beach in the morning before breakfast (you can just duck out the door while the coffee is brewing). This is also Kailua, Oahu's secluded community, with great restaurants and a laid-back vibe. The rest of the island awaits you, but here you can get away from the high-rise hotels, the traffic and the crowds of Waikiki.

Our house is in a quiet, residential neighborhood. It is a great place for a relaxing getaway! Late night partying and large groups really don't work well for us. Reserving this property means you understand and accept this. For which we are very grateful to you! Aloha.
