About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Sunroom, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Aloha and welcome to your beach house. This charming home has everything you need for your dream vacation. Bring your family and friends to unwind Island-style. Come on in and make yourself comfortable. As soon as you walk through the door the stress of everyday life will melt away.

Most of the time our Island tradewinds and ceiling fans will keep you cool. When needed, there is air-conditioning for your added comfort. Each bedroom has a tropical theme all its own. The living room even has a fireplace if you feel so inclined. The large sun room opens on to the pool area providing a perfect setting for entertaining and intimate gatherings.

Enjoy swimming in the custom-tiled pool or relax poolside. Shower off in the outdoor tropical bathroom. The private, peaceful garden setting will make the rest of the world disappear.

A six-foot fence wraps around the spacious front yard – ideal for playing volleyball, lawn darts, or just kicking back. Kalama Beach House is a non-smoking house, although smoking is permitted outside. It is ideally situated just across the street from one of the top-rated beaches in the world, Kailua Beach – a short walk and your toes will be digging into the white sand that stretches for miles. Stroll along the shore or take advantage of one of the many ocean activities available.

The warm turquoise-blue water awaits you! Imagine taking your cup of Kona coffee with you in the early morning to stroll the clean, quiet beach as the absolutely magnificent Hawaiian sun rises! At night, when it’s full-moon time, an experience you won’t forget is when a gigantic full moon appears to rise right up from the horizon. Only a 25-minute drive through the majestic Ko'olau Mountains to the airport, downtown Honolulu and Waikiki. Per Honolulu city and county this property is available for monthly rentals.

Nearby attractions include Kualoa Ranch, Botanical Gardens, Sea Life Park, The Blow Hole, Hanauma Bay & the North Shore. Kailua Town has plenty of shopping from big-name stores to trendy boutiques, antique stores and Island-inspired gift shops that make it easy to find that special something to take home with you. A wide range of restaurants are also just minutes away offering something for everyone including the health-conscious and vegetarian appetites. Several supermarkets and the best health-food store on the Island are close by.

Reviews

Showering outdoors is a perk of paradise.

VRBO Bear stayed here

Nov 3, 2009

After visiting the Kalama Beach House, I decided that hibernation is for the birds. Why sleep away the winter when you can experience a healthy dose of sunny paradise on Oahu? The property was steps away (less than a block) from beautiful Kailua beach and minutes away from delicious local dining. This bear did sleep, but only after days filled with Polynesian culture, sightseeing, boogie boarding, swimming, snorkeling, kayaking, hiking, and island cuisine. Speaking of food, I feasted on the delicious island treats of exotic fruits, meats, and sweets during my visit. This bear just so happens to love Spam, a local favorite. Although the Kalama Beach House was totally comfortable and featured a refreshing salt water pool, my favorite thing about the property was the outdoor master bath. Resembling a tiki hut and hosting a rain forest shower, the master bath was a relaxing getaway that made me feel as if I were living in the jungle (without those pesky lions and tigers, of course). I was genuinely sad to leave Oahu’s tropical setting and return to my wintery home. I will most definitely return to Hawaii and may even consider trading in my snow skis for a surf board.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

Great house--beds are comfortable, kitchen is well stocked, pool is great, outdoor shower is a treat--everything is well cared for. Great location--very convenient to the beach (across the street and down a beach path) and lots of beach stuff is provided. The owners live on site and are very nice. We had a wonderful stay.

We had a wonderful time. This house is perfect and in a great location. Madeline and Joe were great hosts who have thought of everything, they even found a sewing box for my mother. We hope to be back soon.

Great location - nice beach area

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay here. Lots to do, and the local community is a good size for casual shopping and eating.l We had a good visit, seeing the Arizona memorial, the falls, the bay and the North shore. We did visit the dole plantation, but it was not quite what we expected - perhaps the large crowd detracted from the visit there. But overall, very happy with the entire trip and stay.

Awesome place in between adventures

  • 5 of 5

We packed the house full and still we found it very spacious.

Our stay wasn't perfect but the pros blow away any possible negatives. Joe was incredibly responsive and accommodating. As has been mentioned there are tons of amenities in the house that made our stay awesome... from the beach supplies, wagon, chairs, cooking supplies, bathroom supplies and more than plenty of kitchen plates and glasses to always accommodate.

The front yard being fenced in helped with our little kids and the sunroom and pool areas were fantastic. There is some noise from the nearby road at night, but that is a welcome trade off for how close we stayed to the beach. Everyone had great sleeps and we had tons of fun with the pool, games in storage, and the blender. A fantastic stay for sure.

Excellent location, charming home, a+ owner communication - best choice for authentic Oahu holiday

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay at the Kalama Beach House! I'm so glad we chose this property. The location is excellent... steps to the beach, fabulous pool and great for day trips by car to anywhere on the island.

Our family of two adults and three kids were comfortable. There is lots of room to spread out and relax in sun or shade. The home itself is an older character home that is clean. I would say I am quite picky and I felt comfortable. In humid island locales there is a humid stickiness that can't really be avoided so expect to do some wiping and cleaning if you are staying longer than a few days since sand and stickiness accumulate especially with kids around. The kitchen cupboards and indoor bathroom are quite old so don't expect the dry feeling that comes from a brand- new home or hotel. We liked that it didn't feel as "sterile" as a resort. We all preferred the outdoor bathroom and shower. What a nice tropical touch!

We loved seeing the geckos in the yard and did not see any bugs or geckos in the house. The home, floors bedding and upholstery are very clean.

The kitchen is perfectly stocked with anything you might need. From beach toys, chairs, beach wagon, snorkelling supplies, boogie boards, there was not anything we had to rent or buy. We had everything we needed and we so grateful it was supplied for us.

The location is absolutely fantastic. The house is so close to the most incredible beach that we saw on the whole island. Safe sandy bottom and

waves that were perfect for boogie boarding or body surfing. My kids aged 7,9,12 loved the beach and swam and played nonstop.

Kailua is great for shopping & restaurants and there are conveniences within. 5 minute drive or 20 minute walk. I found the town to be picturesque and I felt very safe.

We spent a week here and loved meeting Joe and appreciated his friendly suggestions. He was sweet and kind and gave us all the privacy we wanted. We would definitely recommend this home rental and would stay here again. Thanks Joe!

Hawaiian Christmas Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This was the PERFECT place for a family Christmas in Hawaii! Joe went above and beyond to make it truly special. We had a full house with adults and two young (4 and 5 ) boys. When we arrived, the house was decorated for the holidays with a Christmas tree and all. It made it feel so festive and the boys were delighted. Beyond the holiday cheer - the location was amazing - a super short walk to a non-crowded and beautiful beach. There were toys, chairs and everything you needed at the house for a relaxing day on the beach and a gorgeous pool and backyard space for hanging out in when we were at the house. The house had everything we needed to just relax, hang out, cook good food, and enjoy family. We will definitely be coming back!

The Kailua Experience One would be hard pressed to come up with just one word to describe the essence of Kailua. After all, how could a single word encompass all the pleasures found in this lovely little beach-side town? The least we could do was three. Lush. Let’s start with the obvious, where Oahu’s windward climes conspire to create lush leafy avenues bathed in warm sunlight. This is why to this day, Kailua is often referred to as “Kailua Town”. Languid. Kailua is an unhurried place, soft & gentle to the core, where unassuming shops and eclectic cafes beckon the passerby with a delightful array of foods, gifts, treats, and the island’s best antique stores. It is a town of many tastes, & meant to be approached in a like manner: in small leisurely bites. Light. There’s a playfulness that prevails in almost everything that is Kailua, whether discovering one of more than 75 special shops and charming restaurants that are tucked about the town, or grabbing the last bit of provisions.
