About the property

3 Bdrm, 1 1/2 Bath Completely Renovated Very Clean yet Simple Home

This may be the Best Valued 3 Bedroom home in Kailua that is listed here on VRBO. The home is not realistically walking distance from the beach, but it is only a 5 minute drive (1.6 miles) to Kailua Beach.

The main thing to inform travelers is that this home is super convenient to a Safeway grocery store and several local eateries, but it is on a single lane road that feeds our residential community. You can hear cars going by during the work commute M-F and daytime but is quieter during sleeping hours. The master and secondary bedrooms have a portable A/C unit so when you close the windows and use A/C, the outside noise is minimized.

This home has two bedrooms set up beautifully with comfy plush queen beds with the master bedroom having a half bath attached to it. The third bedroom has a very nice queen sleigh solid wood bed, but only ceiling fan, no A/C. All rooms have ceiling fans and the fully equipped kitchen is ready to go if you enjoy cooking at home. This home is turn key as if it is your own!

The living room is equipped with Tommy Bahama couches and a large screen HD 50' SmartTV with cable and a DVD/Blueray Player.....Fastest WiFi available to a residential home.

There is a tall cedar fence that offers privacy where you can sit at the provided patio furniture with a morning cup of coffee or an evening glass of wine.

The owner lives in the back of the property in an attached dwelling. I make myself readily available to answer any questions of things to do, or address any concerns or questions you may have. I have extensive local knowledge in many categories, and I'm happy to share information with you so don't hesitate to ask!

* An Important note is that this home has only one shower, therefore I limit the amount of persons to what is practical for the guests to sleep in comfort. One or Two Couples / In Laws with the kids is perfect! Guests are asked to sleep in the beds and not on the couches. If you have a group of more than four, there is an additional $25/day per person fee. More than 6 is just too many persons for the home and I thank you for understanding that it is to your benefit to find a larger home for your group.

Why Jim chose Keolu Hills

This property is geared for the people that are active during the day and do not need to sit on the Lanai to look out at the beach. Everything is in close proximity and you can even walk to the Enchanted Lake shopping center that offers several different choices of food as well as a Safeway grocery store. There is even a movie theatre that you can walk to if desired.

What makes this house unique

Olomana Golf course is a great affordable public course that also offers a driving range with lights open until 9pm. Lanikai Beach is the place to go and watch the full moon rise, or hike the pillboxes for the sunrise! Absolutely breathtaking memories are all around you here and if you are open to my local knowledge, I am again more than happy to share! This home is on a road that feeds the residential area here, so if you don't mind normal cars driving by mostly during the day, this will work out great for you and your budget! We also have a Whole Foods store close in Kailua for all your natural food needs.

Excellent! Recommend to everyone!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house. It was very clean and cozy. It is well located. Perfect for groups/families that want to be near the city but not directly in the action.

The owner provided us with extra amenities like beach chairs, boogie boards, beach towels etc. The kitchen was well stocked.

The owner was exceptionally friendly and helpful.

I recommend the property.

Owner's Response: It always warms my heart to hear that families that stay at my home are so satisfied with all the details that make their stay exactly as they have planned and at a great value. My goal is to reach out to those "On the Go" families that don't want to overspend on a place they just want to use as their home base where they can take a hot shower, sleep in a comfy bed, and have the option to make meals for their families if so desired without having to buy lots of staples. Another home run at Kohola Kai!

Lakewood, WA

The perfect retreat. It's just as owner states, nothing g left out.

  • 5 of 5

This home was just perfect for us. Just as owner stated, nothing left out. Home is located right off the main road, I'm use to main traffic noise so it didn't bother me. The other house guest had the back bedroom and did not experience any traffic noise. The home is already move in ready. Everything you could possibly think of is at hand. Beach toys, lots of towels, . Jim, you were awesome thank you so much for everything and welcoming my family & friends to your beautiful home and thanks for coming over and tending to my son's foot accident you really didn't have to or obligated to come over , I want to say thank you, I can't thank you enough, 😎?😄?

Thanks Karen Adams

See you soon,

Great place to stay in Kailua

  • 5 of 5

Jim's place is great! Yes, its on a busy road, but the noise really didn't bother us and it was pretty quiet at night, when it mattered.

The house is very well equipped, with everything you could need in the kitchen - even condiments, coffee, tea and sugar - and Jim (a friendly but unintrusive host) left us a lovely welcome basket of goodies. He also provides beach towels, beach chairs, body boards and other beach kit - really useful! The beds are very comfortable, the shower is great and the laundry facilities met our needs too. The air conditioning units in the bedrooms worked really well - essential for us - and the fans in the living area helped to cool it down a bit. The tv had good reception and a reasonable range of channels, including some free on-demand stuff. The garden (front yard) with table, chairs and sun umbrella, was private and caught the lovely breezes.

The house was in a great location for us: very close to gas stations and to a plaza with restaurants and a supermarket, and it was just a short drive to get to the town centre and the beach park.

We loved Kailua and would highly recommend Jim's house to anyone who is not looking for top-end luxury but is happy with a comfortable, well-equipped and friendly place to stay. (And if, like us, you love cats, Jim has two very friendly and beautiful ones who enjoy company if encouraged to come and visit.)

Perfect location with great amenities.

  • 5 of 5

Kailua is an awesome area and the rental provided a comfortable and homey living experience. The owner pays attention to detail to include a clean home along with everything you could possibly need for a wonderful visit. We hope to return some day and would love to stay at this location once again.

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

House was great. Perfect location for our trip. Not in a touristy part of town which was exactly what we wanted. Close to shopping centers, restaurants & even a target for anything you forget. House has everything we needed just had to add food. Highly recommend#
