Overview

About the property

4 bedrooms 4 baths. Perfect home for extended family groups & Romantic Getaways

Our BEACHFRONT home is designed to provide you with a perfect vacation retreat. You will be as close to the beach as a house can be built.

The beach of Kailua is renown for its fine white sand, blue green waters and safety. This is not a crowded beach, but has a pleasant neighborhood feel.

The 4 Bed/3.5 Bath house gives plenty of space. Upstairs/downstairs and corner bedrooms offer privacy when needed yet togetherness as desired. The 1300 sq ft wrap around lanai gives everyone the feeling of participating in the adventures, whether watching and yelling encouragement, or showing off newly learned water skills.

Our house has everything you need and a casual feeling that will make you feel right at home. The Hawaiian style furnishing and feeling has made our home recommended by some true Hawaiian leader as the best Hawaiian home available.

A garage FULL of BEACH TOYS, YARD TOYS, BBQ OPTIONS, TEAK LOUNGERS, ROCKERS, & TABLES will ensure that you never have a dull moment. The Large Yard allows for plenty of play as well as relaxation.

Kailua is a charming town that has many delicious restaurants and shopping for everyone. You can get all the essentials and find many things to take home as moments of you Hawaiian vacation.

Getting to attractions such a PEARL HARBOR, the NORTH SHORE, HANAUMA BAY is very simple.

The House : The house has 3 Bedrooms Upstairs and 1 in the Lower Level.

The Upper Master Suite has a king bed, full bathroom, and private access to the lanai.

Garden Bedroom has a queen bed and tranquil mountain views

2 Koa Wood Twin Beds furnish the Koa Bedroom which has great views of the beach and yard.

A Large Living Room opens onto the Lanai overlooking the ocean and wrapping around three sides of the house providing views of the beach, the yard, and the mountains. Comfortable couches allow for maximum relaxation while taking in the views of watching a DVD on the flat screen tv. The dining table is perfect for gathering around for dinner conversation.

Downstairs consists of a semi Private Suite with King Bed and Private Half Bathroom.

The Lower Living area features a galley style service kitchen which opens up to a dining area, sitting room, and full bath.

The lower common areas lead one DIRECTLY into the large and beautifully landscaped lawn

The Property : The entire home was designed to be a true representation of Hawaii.

The Plantation style architecture celebrates Hawaii’s heritage of sugar and pineapple plantations; workers and land owners on the plantations would live in homes stylistically similar to ours.

The interior décor of our home reflects this tradition as well while providing modern convenience and comfort. Our furnishings are made of woods and materials traditionally found on the islands, Koa and Bamboo, and we strive to keep the feel of Hawaii throughout the house with tastefully chosen accessories.

Extras: EVERYTHING for your beach vacation is provided with the house- towels, chairs, bbq grill, loads of Beach Boys, and an outdoor shower with hot and cold running water.

*The sounds and views of the beach, ocean, and surf are always within range*

About Daniel Dudden

On our first visit to Hawaii we knew we had found Paradise. Within 4 months, after searching all the islands, we purchased this Beach Front home.

We were extremely lucky to find this home and this location. The house has 100 feet of beachfront and sits 42 feet back from the beachfront. Access to the 3 mile sand beach is across our manicured yard by a beach access on either side of our yard. The location also is directly into Honolulu, not neighborhoods to drive through or road changes to make. We are seemingly in the center of Kailua Town, (Farmers Market 5 blocks away. Whole Foods another 5 blocks.) yet so private you can spend your vacation here without seeing or hearing a car or any street noise. It is such a beautiful place we cannot keep it only for ourselves.

We enjoy sharing this wonderful bit of Hawaii and it is fun making new friends from around the world.

(Funny.....we live in Kailua "Town", but when you go to "town" in Hawaii you are going to Honolulu.)

Daniel Dudden purchased this house in 2000

Why Daniel Dudden chose Kuulei Tract

We strive to make our home reflect all that is beautiful and pleasant about Hawaii. We want our guests to have a easy and memorable vacation. We think the magic of visiting Kailua on the Windward side of Oahu is the best possible choice for a holiday. Live in a home that arguably has the best location and views in Hawaii. The drive over the Pali Highway or H-3 is magical. The charm and comforts of Kailua town. There are many colorful shops but yet all the amenities of a big town. The restaurants are delicious, and you can enjoy different cuisine every night and not choose a favorite. Need we mention the amazing beach literally at your front door. Kailua Beach is ranked as one of the nations premier beaches and it is Hawaii's safest. It's 3 miles of pristine white sands and blue waters are best viewed from our home.

What makes this house unique

Possibly the best beach access, the best beach, the best accessorized home, in the best town in Hawaii.

We offer A Taste Of Hawaii----Last summer we hosted a family who was recommended to our home by a 'Hawaiian Kahuna' friend because 'this is the house that best represents what he wanted his vacationing mainland friends to experience in Hawaii'.

Kailua Beach. The house is as close as permitted
Car: recommended

Our Beach Front home is in Kailua, on the Island of Oahu, Hawaii and on the windward side of Oahu Island. Oahu means "The Gathering Place" and Oahu is the center of Hawaii's business activity, & government, contains 80% of Hawaii's population, and includes Honolulu, and Waikiki. Our home in Kailua is 15 miles across the island from this activity, yet is only about 30 minutes from the airport and all the world class activities, entertainment, and culture of Honolulu.

To and From Honolulu is usually on the PALI HIGHWAY, (or Hwy 61) The Pali Highway, to me, starts on the windward side of Oahu at the stoplight nearest my home then windes 15 miles across the island and through Chinatown, downtown (Central Business District), and ends the Leeward side of Oahu, at Aloha Tower, in Honolulu Harbor.

When traveling between Honolulu and Kailua, be sure to stop at:

1) The Pali Lookout: This is where King Kamehameha defeated Oahu's Army during his quest to conquer all the Hawaiian Island. The views are great.

2) Take the Old Pali Road through the jungle and rain forests, Follows the current road closely but is beautiful and not much slower.

3) Almost in Honolulu, but on the Pali Hwy is Queen Emma's Summer Palace.

4) In Honolulu, visit Iolani Palace, the only Royal Palace in the USA.

5) There is an endless list of excitement and activities in Honolulu.

Our home is just a block off the road that circles the island. Start your NORTH SHORE bound "Around the Island" trip by taking a left off our private drive onto Kalaheo Drive. Kalaheo continue on to the Ocean Frontage road, Kaneohe Bay Drive, and then on to Kamehameha Highway. On your North Shore drive you should visit the famous and interesting places like the Macadamia Nut Farm, and the Kuaola Ranch where activities and beauty abound. These are the settings for many movie & TV shows. Don't forget to visit The Polynesian Cultural Center.

Continue on to visit the North Shore's famous beaches, surf spots, and sightseeing places. On your way to the North Shore there are places to visit the turtles resting and the Monk Seals sunbathing.

(Maybe this should be a two day or even a week long trip, but it always remains a short drive back to the house.)

EAST END OF ISLAND Taking a right turn (Opposite Direction) off our street onto Kalaheo Drive there is a shorter drive that takes you around the East end of Oahu. On this road you will pass the Makapuu Lighthouse hiking Trail, a Blow Hole viewing pull off, and snorkeling at Hanauma Bay. Travel on into Hawaii Kai and/or Honolulu.

FOR A SPECIAL TREAT on a rainy day take H3, Likelike Highway (Hwy 63) or the Pali Hwy. (H3 is best) across the island and see hundreds of 1000 ft waterfalls. (On any day there are at least of few.)

One of the islands more famous hikes is to the beautiful views from the Lanakai Pill Boxes. This is a short and uneventful hike (don't give up on the first 100 yards) you can start from the house by walking towards Lanakai, or if you are tired of beach walking, drive the mile to Lanakai and park across the road from the Mid-Pac Country Club.

Heiau's are plentiful on Oahu, from ancient warshiping ruins, royalty birthing temples and more.

Our home is on Kailua Beach, just 42 feet across a perfectly manicured lawn to 3 miles of tropical waters and sand Beach.

Kailua Town is a charming beach town with many great restaurants and great shopping. There are some particularity good upscale restaurants along with delicious casual dining. The area has many grocery and drug stores and other services to make your stay easy. There are two Farmers Markets each week within a few blocks from home. We are uniquely located in the middle of Kailua Town, Whole Foods is the nearest market. Yes our home is secluded enough that you will not see or hear a car or traffic from the house for the duration of your stay. Access to Kailua town (and to Honolulu) is easy, no more than two corners to turn.

There is always beach activities to watch or join. In addition to sunbathing and beach novels there is great boogie boarding, kayaking, windsurfing, kitesurfing, stand up paddling, and other ocean sports to enjoy.

Surprisingly enough you will often have the beach to yourself. Kalama Beach Park is a mile in one direction, Kailua Beach Park a mile in the other but it is pure beach to the beach parks and beyond.

Kailua is the perfect vacation spot, out of the hustle and bustle of Waikiki but a nice and comfortable community with amenities galore. Kailua Beach is known as a favorite among locals for its incredible beauty and peacefulness. We are just a 30 minute drive from many of the local tourist attractions like Pearl Harbor, but you will feel a world away while enjoying our home.

Golf: Some say Hawaii is one big golf course. All courses on Oahu are easily accessible from our home.

Amazing experience

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic location and home. Everything and more you expect when staying in a beach front house. Every detail is considered every amenity is right there for your comfort. The house is meticulously cleaned and maintained. My stay was two people there is absolutely plenty of room for 8 very comfortably, plenty of linens, house towels and beach towels. Washer and dry both very efficient should you need. There's even an electric car charger!! For a fun family trip, plenty of entertaining room, or for a romantic getaway this is the place. The beach is about 30 yards away, enjoy your morning coffee on the lenai rocking in a rocking chair watch the sun rise listening to the waves. This was truly an amazing stay. definitely strongly recommend and encourage you to stay here! I know I will stay again on my next visit! Thank you Dudden Family!!

Vacation in paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Dan and Virginia's beautiful home in Kailua was perfect in every way for our family vacation. Eight of us (parents and young adults) enjoyed all the amenities that came with house: great kitchen, every water toy you could want (SUPs, surf boards, kayaks, boogie boards, etc), lawn games, bikes, coolers, hats, rash guards, sun screen, sand chairs, beach towels, grill... you name it! We ate most of our meals at the house and enjoyed cooking together in the well-stocked kitchen (all the spices, utensils and dishes we needed) and loved spending time on the beautiful wrap-around porch, perfect lawn and - best of all - the amazing, beautiful and quiet beach just steps from our back door. The 4th of July fireworks right over our beach were an amazing bonus to the wonderful week we spent together. Couldn't have asked for a better location - easy walks or bike rides into town (and shave ice!) - and the gorgeous beach to look at and enjoy 24/7. Dan and Virginia were perfect hosts and were very helpful before and during our stay. A wonderful vacation that our family will never forget! Mahalo!

Owner's Response: Aloha, Marilyn and her family were wonderful guests. They are very active and fun people who have fun together as a family. They tried every activity available. Every time I stopped by I was envious of the fun they were having. Things were cleaned and put away when they departed. The house and the furnishing were well treated. Maybe the best ever. I hope they will visit you someday, this is a family that makes hosting fun. Dan

Everything you could ask for and more in a Kailua beach house

  • 5 of 5

Our party is two couples plus on two year old child. We were looking for the perfect relaxed beach house with lots of space, and we found it! Dan's house is right on the beach in the best part of Kailua, just a short walk along the sand from the beach park. The house is equipped with everything you could need for your stay including boards, bikes, kayaks and more. Dan was very helpful before and throughout our trip, just a phone call or message away with local tips. We had a very special holiday that will be remembered for a long time!

Great location and well stocked for a family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

I know this will an anniversary to cherish for a long, long time. Dan

Little piece of paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We (four adults and four children) had a wonderful vacation. The house is located on a lovely stretch of the beach--practically empty, but within walking distance of the main beach and the all-important shave ice store. The waves were perfect for boogie-boarding and the porch perfect for watching the sun rise. The house was stocked with two of everything we needed, along with kayaks, boogie boards, games, bicycles, extra rash guards, and loads more. When we expressed interest in volleyball, Dan bought a set! Our only complaint was that we couldn't stay longer... But we'll be back as soon as we can.
