Perfect location and cute cottage

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the Tropical Beach cottage. Kailua beach is one of the nicest beaches we have ever been to and it was the perfect location. The unit was well kept and comfortable and we would definitely stay there again. We are a family of four with kids 10 and 13 and everyone enjoyed our stay.

The Sound of Wave

  • 5 of 5

I stayed with my friend for a week. We liked this place very much. The beach is very near so we can enjoy the sound of the wave. Listening to the sound, I felt calm and peaceful. And the cottage is so nice and comfortable. Everything we need is there. The room is full of pretty things. I want to come back again !

Good location and family friendly

  • 4 of 5

Very close to the beach but if you want the calm beach for kids its about a mile drive down to Kailua beach park closer to lanikai. This cottage is also close to the town center where they have Foodland, safeway and Target. Restaurants are also within short driving distance.

The place had all kinds of beach toys, towels, boogie board and pool float.

The street is very quiet after sundown which was nice and relaxing. Loved hearing the crickets and waves at night. For the kids, they enjoyed the geckos, little frogs, slugs and there was this huge snail that came out when it rained.

It was very hot and humind when we went. This was due to the hurricanes that passed by the islands. The fans helped but wish there was air conditioning.

Its a cute cottage and big enough for a family of four (2 little kids).

Cozy, clean, on short trail to beach

  • 5 of 5

Stayed 5 nights with husband and two teenagers in early April, 2016. Just enough room for everyone. Bed was firm in bedroom. Daughters said pull out was comfortable in living area. There is a door to separate the two areas. Ceiling fan and screened Windows/doors for ventilation.

Garden space was nice to have coffee in the mornings. About 3/4 of the garden space was covered, which is good when it rains. Lots of beach gear was provided and all the necessities for cooking (no range, but there was a double hot plate, convection oven, and another magnetic cook surface).

Coffee pot was programmable so we had fresh, hot coffee waiting in the morning (there was a container with a lid to put coffee in to refrigerate or bring in car for iced coffees too). They also had a cooler bag to use. I would recommend either buying another ice tray (or bagged ice) or start making ice to put in the container in the freezer to have enough ice (they might be getting another tray, not sure) due to no ice maker in fridge, but we made it work.

There was enough hot water for four people to shower, and we had enough room to organize our bags.

The beach was like a one minute walk, we were super close to the beach. Not many people on the beach while we were there during the weekdays. Weather was good for swimming and light boogie boarding (waves aren't huge - just right for kids). No snorkeling at that spot (water was murky. Didn't check the ends of the beach though). People were walking dogs (all under control, no problems) and running on beach - friendly.

Owners were very nice, only saw them a few short seconds a few times coming and going in the parking lot and when we got there. Everything was straight forward and easy to find.

Sounded like neighbors had a dog, but it only barked a few times and only for very short periods during the day (possibly when someone went to their house?), but we were never woken up or bothered by it. Didn't hear any roosters, thankfully. Overall, a quiet neighborhood. Sounds I heard at night were mostly waves, rain, and crickets. There was one night when someone was partying, but it was short lived (maybe vacationers?).

Driving was easy. Shopping and eateries minutes away. And there is a big mall about 15-20 minutes away. Buzz's steakhouse was a good meal, spendy, but isn't everything in Hawaii? Also some good soft frozen yogurt places are close. Also try Lanikai Juice at the town center, very good.
