Absolutely AMAZING! Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

The Kuu Hale was cozy, comfortable, had all the amenities we needed, was close to everything and made our visit home one of the best weeks ever. The open home, beautiful outdoor entertaining space and pool and walking distance to the beach were just what we needed! We couldn't have imagined a more perfect home. Uta was available and responsive if we needed anything. If you're looking for the perfect vacation home, look no further. This place is PERFECT!!!

Great Location and a really nice home.

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with our stay. The house is in a very nice and quiet neighborhood, just a few minute's walk from beautiful Kailua beach. The house is spacious and light. It does not have luxury interior decor, but we had no complaints, and we'd rather put our money towards location and functionality, which was excellent. Loved having our own pool in a very private backyard. Very quick drive or nice walk to the shops and restaurants of Kailua. Uta is excellent to work with, and even saved us when our housekey took an unexpected trip to the ocean floor on a snorkel trip, and she had a new one there waiting for us before we arrived back home. I was expecting that we'd be charged a fee for that, but we weren't - just part of the excellent customer service. And there was a very nice welcome basket waiting for us at the beginning of our stay. Overall, we felt very well taken care of, and would definitely stay here again next time we come to Oahu.

We spent a week at the Kuu Kailua home in February and had an absolutely wonderful vacation. Uta is extremely easy to reach and quick to return emails. She emailed before we arrived with all the pertinent information and even phoned during our stay to make sure that everything was to our satisfaction and that we didn't have any questions. She has compiled a binder for guests with maps, nearby restaurants, grocery stores, entertainment and all sorts of helpful tips. With 4 adults in our family, the home offered plenty of space for everyone. We travel frequently and I can honestly say this home has everything and more. The kitchen is stocked with every utensil, skillet, knife, etc that you could possibly need. Imagine my delight at finding it even had a rice cooker! The home is immaculate, complete with laundry facilities, hairdryers, beach towels and beach chairs. The pool is well maintained surrounded by a lovely private backyard. If you aren't a pool person, the beach is a pleasant 5 minute walk. To my surprise, we received a call from Uta the day before we were to depart letting us know that if we needed a late check out she would be happy to accommodate us. We were not scheduled to depart until 5:00pm so it was much appreciated. This is the perfect vacation rental. You will not be disappointed. We have already recommended this home to several friends. We look forward to our next visit

We have been coming to Kailua every year for about 10 years and have stayed in many different homes, the Kuu home was an excellent choice!!!! First of all Uta was very friendly and accommodating, check in was a breeze. The house is very roomy and comfortable. I loved the layout of the living room and kitchen looking out over your beautiful pool area and private setting. It's so nice to come home after your daily activities to a dip in the pool. It's also an easy walk to the beach. We all really enjoyed our stay and will return. Flip (the owner) was great too, very helpful and friendly.

This is the second time our family has rented from Uta, and this was as pleasant and seamless as the first time. We were in Kailua for a wedding. Our family consisted of three generations, and this house delivered for everyone! We wanted close access to the beach, a pool, a yard to kick a soccer ball, and enough room inside to spread out. Our family has rented in Kailua before, but this house was the BEST! The separate suites gave families privacy, and the several sitting areas did deliver in the need for our family to spread out. The location was an easy walk to the access lane for the beach. The kids lived in the pool and the yard. We wanted for nothing. We love to cook our meals when here, and the kitchen was well stocked. We often ate out on the lanai, but we had the option to eat inside, too. The wall of windows facing the pool and lanai gave the illusion of the outside and inside being one. Thank you, Uta, for all your help in making a smooth transition from our previous rental home, and for your kindness and helpfulness. Our family will definitely rent this home again. I would highly recommend this home.
