Property description

E komo mai to The Cottage at Hale Makai - our piece of island paradise in Kailua. Lying alongside a fabulous three-mile stretch of protected beach, Kailua is a small town on the windward side of Oahu. Kailua Beach is routinely voted one of the best beaches in the world and, with no hotels in town, only local residents and visitors who rent vacation homes get to enjoy our island lifestyle. You will love this kama'aina (local) way to enjoy Hawaii.

You couldn't ask for a more perfect location! Set up for couples or small families, our one-bedroom, one-bath detached cottage is just steps from Kailua Beach. Pick up your cappuccino at the Kalapawai Market every morning and your shave ice (snow cone) at Island Snow every afternoon. Your family will love this Kama'aina (local) way to enjoy Hawaii.

Kailua town, with its restaurants, shopping, and entertainment is a little more than 1/2 mile away. And, in just a short car ride, you can swim with the dolphins at Sea Life Park, snorkel in Hanauma Bay, hike the stunning Ko'olau mountains, swim/surf the North Shore, browse the 'Swap Meet' at the Aloha Stadium, sample Honolulu's nightlife, walk Waikiki Beach, or get to the airport.

Kick back. Our cottage has been furnished in island style to make your stay relaxing and enjoyable. You will feel right at home while you barbecue dinner on the lanai, wander to and from the beach, watch movies or cable TV, or drift off to sleep in the comfortable bed. We also have wireless internet access so you can stay connected!

The detached one-bedroom, one-bath cottage has a queen-size bed in a separate bedroom and queen-size sofa bed in the living room (sleeps two adults plus small child comfortably), kitchen/eating area, and covered patio with a Weber gas grill and outdoor furniture. Includes access to all the beach toys - boogie boards, sand toys, beach chairs/mats/towels and cooler and an initial supply of paper and soap products.

Located on a large lot with a separate, three-bedroom, two-bath detached house (VRBO #55006), the cottage is available to rent separately or together with the house for larger groups.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1990

About the owner: My husband and I have had this property for about 25 years. Since my husband's family had lived in Kailua for many years during their high school years and had many fond memories of the island, we wanted to be able to bring our own family back to Kailua and create our own family memories. About 8 years ago, we decided to open our home to other vacationing families who have been able to enjoy many happy days as a family here. We hope that you find our place as comfortable for your family as we do for ours!

Why the Owner Chose Kuulei Tract, Kailua, HI, USA:
Location!!

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Being located a short walk from Kailua Beach means that you can go back and forth to the beach all day without loading and unloading everything into and out of the car. I love being able to pick up my latte at the Kalapawai Market before my beach stroll, and we have a family ritual of shave ice every afternoon from Island Snow (President Obama's favorite before-dinner snack with his kids!)
