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.
This place was amazing and the fact that it didn't have a stove but had every electric appliance you could imagine was incredible - electric skillet, crockpot, burners, rice cooker, pots and pans, microwave and more was outstanding. We cooked in almost everyday!!! This place is clean, close to the beach (one house away), acxeissble to market and other needs-we even rented from Hawaii Beach time and had a paddle board and kayak for a week delivered to our front door! The owners are amazing and there isn't anything you will need - they have it all - beach chairs, linens, beach towels, parking, air in rooms, fans, TV, DVD, all ammenities, washer & dryer so pack lightly..,,just go enjoy yourself!!!! My family and I will be back! Thank you Ron and Kathy
This property was well kept and well stocked with plenty of linens and kitchen equipment. It was great having beach equipment to use, especially the boogie boards. The location can't be beat! There is no ocean view from the house but it is steps to Kailua Beach, with a market, some shops, and a shave ice place all in walking distance. Having off street gated parking was also a plus. We would stay here again!
We concur and agree with all the wonderful things said about the Hideaway. The house was fully equipped with essential necessities we needed. The kitchen had small appliances like coffee maker, toaster oven, microwave etc. enough for making snacks and light breakfast. No stove-no cooking ... hey we're on vacation!! We found the apt to be clean spacious and comfy above the garage and tastefully decorated with a beachouse feeling. Ron welcomed us and gave a tour of the place and showed us where they store the beach equipment. Wow.. what a selection. They have beach chairs, boogie board snorkel gear umbrella noodles etc.Lots of beach towels. Great tools to have , no need to pack them along. The 2 bedrooms were small but adequate with comfy beds. They have AC each but did not use them. We used the ceiling fans and with the windows open you can hear the surf and the ocean breeze. Very soothing. The outdoor shower was a plus to wash off the sand or take a complete shower with hot and cold water. The gorgeous beach was a few steps away as stated ( one house over). The town about 3-5 min drive or 30 min walk. It has restaurants, Target, Whole food, Pier 1 Import etc and other local shops. Despite the windy rainy and overcast weather we had a blast. Went to Waikiki where it's always sunny and saw other attractions. . Fun and enjoyable unforgettable vacation. Mahalo!!
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 .
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.
