About the property

If you want a tropical paradise, this is it! And a hammock to enjoy it all!

After a day of sightseeing or hanging out at the beach, my home welcomes you back with Hawaiian hospitality. Before the evening activities, you might want to take a short nap out back in the hammock, catch up on the latest news on the 47' TV or with the free WiFi, or grill some fresh Hawaiian shish-ka-bobs from Hibachi's on the patio. After dinner in the beautiful dining room, you can go for a leisurely bike ride through this lovely neighborhood. And then catch the beautiful Hawaiian sunset -- it can't be beat. ... Catching the sunrise? Snorkeling? Surfing? Checking out the sea turtles? The list goes on & on.

The house has 2 private bedrooms with closet storage. There is also a queen bed situated off to the side of the great room, and the leather sofa is also a queen size bed. There is a Graco Pack n Play for your baby.

For your entertainment, the house has WiFi, a 47' flat screen TV with DVD player, boogie boards, a surf board, snorkeling equipment, 4 bikes, etc.

Just bring your shorts, shirts, sandals, bathing suits, and toothbrush and you are set to go.

About Don Fenstermaker To ensure inquiries are received, always email and call us!

I am Don. I spent the early years of my childhood on Bellows Beach, just around the corner from Kailua. I love it here. One unexpected benefit of sharing our home is we are so excited about Kailua and Hawaii, in general that we love for others to experience this wonderful place.

Why Don Fenstermaker To ensure inquiries are received, always email and call us! chose Coconut Grove

Kailua has the best location in all of the Islands. It has all of the charm of a small beach town with easy access to Honolulu.

This Comfortable house brings the right balance of seclusion, beach access, compactness and efficiency, airport proximity, and charm. It made it possible for us to leave on the 8AM Hawaiian Airlines flight and be on the beach by 1. Where else can you do that?

We have outfitted this house with 'the best.' The bedding is all Martha Stewart 600 thread count, the kitchen pots, pans and utensils are all Williams and Sonoma first quality.

We have tried to ensure most of what you need to have fun is provided - boogie boards, snorkeling equipment, bikes and surfboard.

What makes this house unique

Secluded and beautiful, stand alone home sleeps up to 9. Fully stocked kitchen. 4 queen beds, 2 private bdrms, 1 bath. 1/2 mile from desirable N end of Kailua Beach. Lush tropical foliage, gated yard, great patio, 4 bikes, beach toys, snorkeling gear.

Beautiful Kailua Beach Home

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed our week stay in this clean, comfortable, beautiful Kailua beach home. Convenient location to town, grocery store and beaches. Kitchen fully stocked with all cooking essentials for those who like to cook/bake, outdoor grill was a big plus! Beach gear, towels provided which saved time and money in having to rent. Highly recommend the sunday farmers market in town, Lanikai Juice, Morning Brew for coffee or healthier breakfast option over Cinnamons although the cinnamon rolls were delicious! We enjoyed the nearby hiking trails, views were amazing! Lanikai beach was by far our favorite, truly paradise in Lanikai, hope to return soon and will definitely rent this home again. The owners were so kind and helpful from day one which made our stay even more pleasant. Thank you so much, Don and Mari for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home we had an amazing time!

The perfect family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Surrounded by palm trees, this cozy cottage is the perfect destination for your next family gathering. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need. We cooked most meals at home, and there was plenty of dishes, etc. for the 5 of us. Beach gear - including buckets and shovels for kids - were provided, which was a huge plus for my 3 year old. The beaches we frequented (Kailua and Lanakai) were a short drive a way. Or, if you're up for a nice walk, the closest beach access is about 10 minutes away.

Owner's Response: Dear Katie, We are glad you enjoyed our home so much. Once we get to know Kailua and surrounding areas better, we do not want to leave this place! We the owners, the property manager and cleaning crew work very hard to make sure all our guests expectations are met from the moment they arrive. You are all welcome any time! We love that place! Mahalo, Don

Great family gathering!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I met his parents in O'ahu for a week and stayed in this house. It was an awesome experience! All of us felt sorry about leaving this place on our last day. We spent most of our time talking in the living room or taking a walk to the beautiful beach about half a mile in one-way. Also, all Don's suggestions of restaurants and shopping lists near this house were very thoughtful and great. We particularly loved to pick up Kebobs and Kalbi for dinner barbecue (awesome grill!) with local beer and wine. We definitely want to go back and enjoy the relaxed atmosphere of this beautiful island.

Nice house with everything you need!

  • 4 of 5

This is a great house in a wonderful area. We did have a problem with the bathroom sink but the owner was always a phone call away and did everything he could to take care of it. We loved this area and the whole island. There is so much to do that a week is not enough! We definitely hope to be back!

Owner's Response: We are so glad you liked the house and the area. We know the repair on the sink was frustrating as the repair was really beyond the scope of our maintenance crew, even though they tried. We're sorry we weren't able to coordinate home access with an outside professional plumber, until the very last. Rotorooter fixed the problem, permanently. Our usual response to any issue is one day.

A spacious and comfortable home in a lovely area

  • 5 of 5

This house had everything we needed, plenty of bedding and kitchen items, hairdryer etc, it has lovely large living areas, and is in a nice quiet area. Shops are close by, including a Safeway Supermarket.

A short trip along the highway into town, everything was close enough but we were out of the busy centre, so it was really relaxing. We found some beautiful beaches in Kailua and nearby, my favourite was Waimanalo.

We enjoyed walking around Kailua, it has a nice calm holiday feel to it, and people are friendly. We were impressed with the courteous driving throughout Hawaii, especially Kailua.

Don and Mari are great, they're so kind and helpful. I always got a quick response when I contacted them prior to our trip. There were really clear instructions about what day to put out the rubbish bin etc, it was very simple.

We had a wonderful holiday in this beautiful house, I highly recommend it.

Kailua is the quintessential beach town and is known for its world famous beach and quaint feel. I fell in love with this area at age 6 and it has never left my memory and heart at 56. Honestly, it is the sweetest place on earth!

This beautiful Kailua sanctuary for your family and friends is a 1200 sq ft home completely surrounded by 20 royal and 3 coconut palms with a hammock to enjoy the constant ocean breeze. There are two very cute bedrooms with queen size beds and an additional queen bed and a couch that converts to a queen. You could sleep 8 if you really love all of them, but 6 is very comfortable. There is a fully equipped kitchen with a bar and a beautiful dining room. If you enjoy outdoor cooking, there is a gas bar-b-que, two outdoor dining tables and patio seating (you can get some amazing Hawaiian shish kabobs and poke from Hibachi's in Kailua). There is also a washer/dryer, 47' flat screen, boogie boards, a surf board and snorkeling equipment. To get around, there are two folder bicycles and one Electra beach cruiser and a place to park your rental car.

The house is about 3/4 mile from beach access 89A (shown in the photo) and a very easy 5 minute bike ride or 15 minute walk on Duck Lane (not the official name, but there are lots of ducks on this beautiful boulevard).

The house is 25 minutes from the airport and has great access to the famous North Shore and if you want to try kite boarding or some great sea kayaking, Kailua Beach Park is the perfect spot. There are lots of sea turtles, too!
