We have a beautiful, spacious, architect designed 2 bedroom, 1.5 bath apartment with private access to Kailua Beach. Our home is only one lot off the beach and has a private access to the beach. It is in a gated community of three homes.
Our apartment is upstairs over our 3 car garage. We have a walk in shower and the toilets and the shower are provided with grab bars for assistance.
The apartment is nicely furnished with spacious bedrooms, a master bath, a half bath, a living room area, and a nice kitchen with lots of cooking devices in lieu of a stove/oven (see below). It has a separate entrance and is configured to insure your privacy.
We have a washer and dryer in the unit for your convenience.
The bedrooms are air conditioned, although you will probably not want or need to use them. You can hear the sounds of the ocean at night and enjoy the gentle tradewinds. There are ceiling fans in the bedrooms and living area to cool you off.
We also include high speed wi-fi access for streaming to your laptops or tablets and a printer to print out any maps, boarding passes, or documents from your laptop. We provide cable TV with premium channels for your entertainment.
We have a hot water shower outside so you can rinse off when you come back from the beach. Our guests with small children particularly like this amenity, as they can give their children a full shower before returning to the apartment.
We provide beach chairs, umbrellas and other beach toys, including boogie boards and ocean kayaks. If you are more adventurous, places to learn wind or kite surfing and stand up paddle boarding are literally just a few minutes away.
Early risers can catch one of our spectacular sunrises. Kailua Beach is regularly selected as the best beach in the world. It is a two mile long white sand beach and it is common to see people on their regular beach walks. It's no wonder the First Family vacations in Kailua every Christmas season.
A small market and places to eat are a mere five minutes walk away. Kailua town is close by with lots of unique restaurants and shops to visit, as well as full service markets, including an all new Whole Foods and a Target. Despite the fact that Kailua town is only 5 minutes away, the neighborhood is quiet and feels secluded.
The Hideaway is very comfortable whether you visit for only a few days or for an extended stay.
I guess I should have read a little closer. I got what was stated on the listing, however it wasn't what I was looking for. The value just isn't there for the money. Small, loud, bedroom window AC units that are turning on every 90 seconds, and off after 10 seconds. When we got up in the morning and opened the bedroom door we were met with a warm muggy living room. No stove for cooking completely negated the reason for having a VRBO home versus paying the same price for a nice hotel. Sorry, but staying in someone's back yard above their garage was just not the Hawaii experience we were looking for. What wasn't in the listing was the neighbors partying outside our window every night, and unfriendly neighbors that aren't too thrilled about having strangers share their security gate. This just missed the mark for us.
Apartment was clean and features were as promised. We enjoyed our stay.
If you are looking for a quiet hideaway in a lovely location, then this is the rental you will want for a great vacation ! The pictures on the site do not reveal the exceptional cleanliness and well equipped property that we found. All of the small comforts of home are present which make for a wonderful vacation . The owners were so kind upon our arrival to show us around and to assist us immediately when we had trouble with the TV. When there was a hurricane warning, we found a lantern and a flashlight on the stairs! The beautiful beach is accessible down a path just one house away. Some of the most beautiful water we have ever seen. We would recommend this property to anyone looking for a leisurely vacation .
Ron and Kathy welcomed us upon our arrival. My ten year-old sun, who is
usually very shy, instantly loved them and also the apartment. The
apartment is very clean and comfortable, especially for us Japanese who
customary take off shoes before entering the house. The living and dining
area is actually more spacious than it looks in the photos, and very
convenient because you can work with your laptop computers at the corner of
dining counter as well as at the computer desk at the corner of living
room, which my wife and I actually did during our stay. The barrier-free
full bath with high ceiling is very user friendly and comfortable. As for
the atmosphere, one lot away from the beach, and also from the Kalaheo
avenue is exquisitely good, because if it is too close to the beach, the
sound of ocean sometimes become too big for light sleepers, and the
closeness to the avenue makes the sound of morning commuter traffic a
little annoying. In this sense This Hideaway stands at the perfect
location. There is a famous local favorite store, Kalapawai market within
two or three minute walk from the apartment, which is very handy when you
need a bottle of water, juice or milk, and also a cup of morning coffee.
We had planned to use the kayaks at the apartment but we could not use them
because my wife damaged one of her ribs when she did surfing at Waikiki,
but we highly recommend the kayaking at the Kailua beach and Lanikai beach.
Overall, we highly recommend this apartment to those of you who would seek
peaceful atmospher and active water sports experiences at the same time.
We would like to come back to Ron and Kathy's apartment and stay longer
next time soon. Mahalo, Ron and Kathy !
My family of 4, including two teenagers enjoyed staying at Ron and Kathy's beach rental. I can emphasize enough how great it is to have a short walk from apartment to beach. We used the chairs and even pulled out the boogie boards to ride the waves one day. Kailua beach is clean, free of seaweed and rocks and makes a fun destination for any family.
Ron was available immediately one morning when I managed to lock myself out of the apartment and my family was sleeping through my calls and knocking. He made us feel welcome and was available for any questions. There was even a nice basket prepared for us with shampoo, conditioner, soap. It was a nice a touch and convenient to have since we hadn't purchased those products yet. We made use of visiting Target which was less than 3 miles away and we also enjoyed having a Whole Foods in town for sandwiches and pizza slices.
The apartment was very clean and worked well for us. Like many of the other renters have said before, it would have been nice to have had a grill. We have rented many times in Hawaii and have always used one during our vacation. This vacation we never cooked inside the apartment which gave me a break and allowed us to try the many offerings in town including one of our casual favorite's Teddy's bigger burgers. One night we even drove down to Waikiki for dinner which was about 1/2 hour away.
The air conditioners in the bedrooms worked really well at night. The rest of the apartment was quite warm, but once again we knew that was going to be case. After a couple of experiences, I wouldn't recommend anyone staying at a vacation rental in Hawaii without the minimum of air conditioners in the bedroom.
It was great vacation stay and nice to finally stay outside of Waikiki and have 2 very different experiences on Oahu. We loved both!
Ron met us as we arrived and gave us a tour of the apartment, the grounds, all of the amenities and walkway to Kailua Beach. The apartment is literally 100 steps to the most beautiful beach on Oahu! The apartment was totally furnished and supplied with everything we needed! We immediately walked to the beach and went swimming before driving into downtown Kailua for Dinner. The apartment is very comfortable for a family of 5 and we enjoyed preparing meals on several evenings as a family. Other highlights included having breakfast at the local market, hiking the Lanakai Pillbox Trail, Shaved Ice at Island Ice, and the Chief's Luau! Thank you Ron and Cathy for a very enjoyable stay in Kailua! When we visit Oahu again we will definately choose this Beautiful Apartment again! Doug and Jeanne Brush
Kailua Bay is on the windward side of Oahu, about 30 minutes from Waikiki and away from all the commercialism and crowded beached and high rise hotels, but easily accessible to all of the urban amenities. In addition to our fabulous beach, you will want to explore the beautiful coastline of the windward side and our tropical scenery where many movies are filmed. There is no lack of places to visit or things to do.
