About the property

Newer 5-Bedroom/6-Bath Home (sleeps 10), 5,000 sft., 225 Steps to Sandy Beach

E Komo Mai! Welcome to our newer 5-bedroom/6-bath private home, located in the desirable windward town of Kailua, Oahu. This beachside residence is within close walking distance to a 3-mile stretch of one of the best swimming beaches on Oahu. Stores, restaurants, shave ice, kayak rentals, and a medical clinic, are all within eyesight too.

Our home bodes well for those large families or gatherings of best friends that want to enjoy each others company, yet have the space to relax or search out privacy throughout this 5,000 sft. home.

Our goal is to provide our guests with all the comforts they would expect on a vacation in paradise. Imagine, every bedroom in this home has its own private bathroom. All of the 5-bathrooms have at least a shower, and 2 have an extra tub/shower feature. Additionally, all of the 5-bedrooms have large closets, of which 4 are walk-in's. Each bedroom has its own flat screen television and a dedicated split air conditioning unit for added comfort.

The well furnished kitchen boasts granite countertops and contains upscale major appliances with brand names such as Sub-Zero, Wolf, and Bosch. A nook that seats 4 comfortably adjoins the main kitchen area along with a spacious pantry stocked with cooking paraphernalia, small appliances, and paper products.

There are 2 enormous covered outdoor lanai's, approximately 750 sft. each in size, both facing directly towards the cool prevailing trade winds. Numerous tables and chairs are provided on each lanai, with a teak dining set (seats 10) and a Weber gas BBQ positioned on the downstairs lanai for covered outdoor dining enjoyment.

Exceeded our expectations. Fabulous.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Harry's home for 11 nights. We are a family 5 and had another family of 3 with us. There was ample space for all and the house exceeded our expectations. The kitchen was well stocked and we were very grateful for the welcome basket. We made good use of the beach chairs, snorkels and bikes. It was also a great bonus to have beach towels.

Fantastic location, and the property exceeded our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

Harry was a great host, greeting us as we arrived and walking the entire property to make sure we knew how/where everything was to make the most of our stay. We had family coming and going through the week, and this property was great to get back and forth from the airport in a timely manner. Our kids and grandkids had a blast playing with all the beach toys Harry provided. Would, and already have recommended this Property to our friends and family for future stays.

Best Family Vacay Location, Ever!

  • 5 of 5

Wow, where to start...........well, Harry couldn't have been easier to deal with during the booking process. Once we had decided to book with Harry and confirmed availability and dates the VRBO website made payments and process streamlined and painless (other than having to pay ;) ). Harry provided us with details and information about his property and the surrounding area which helped us to plan our trip and take advantage of opportunities we wouldn't have been otherwise aware of. Our family group consisted of 9 adults ranging in age from 2 to 58 so our interests were varied. On arrival, we were delighted to find 2 double attached garages for our rental vehicles behind a rolling gate making for a secure and safe area to enter and leave from. The website doesn't do the house justice, it is simply huge, with each of the 5 bedrooms having their own private bath. Laid out on 2 levels, each with a large lanai as well as an indoor "lounging" area, we never felt crowded. The main level also had a dining area which we used for breakfast and lunch, but we ate dinner outside on the lanai every night. Meal preparation was a breeze in the large well-equipped kitchen. we even baked cookies, pretzels, and cinnamon buns (out daughter is an accomplished baker). The large 4G hi-def TV was great for catching a game or a movie while digesting. There is a small community grocery right next door for emergency supplies, and Safeway, Target, and Whole Foods are a short journey away for more substantial forays. If it's beach you want, one of the nicest beaches we've ever seen is less than a 5 minute walk (for a 2 year-old) away. We were there every day and never found it crowded. If you need beach toys, boogie boards, masks and snorkels, bicycles (3), don't worry, Harry's got you covered. Kailua is a part of Hawaii we had never before visited, and Harry's place is ideally situated for quiet and convenience. It's about a half hour from the airport, away from the hustle and bustle of Honolulu, but easily close enough should you want some of the "Big City". The North Shore is an hour away, enjoyable hikes are right outside your door, or a short drive away. Although we were there as a family, we are seriously considering a return with friends. Harry's place would work well with as many as five couples. Mahalo, Harry!!

Beautiful, spacious home... steps away from Kailua beach!

  • 5 of 5

This house is beautiful! SO appreciative that Harry allowed us to stay in his gorgeous home! It's very close to the beach, and he's super accommodating. He showed us around when we arrived and went over the ground rules; and also met with us prior to our check-out. Location is great; right near Kailua and Lanikai beach. Also, not too far from Foodland, Target, etc. I'd recommend this home to anyone traveling with large groups/multiple couples as each bedroom has its own ensuite bathroom. The house itself was well stocked with various items (shampoo, conditioner, body soap, coffee, sunblock, etc). The patio and lanai were very open and great for relaxing, and hanging out.

To be honest, everyone else that was in town with us (but was obviously not staying with us), were both impressed and jealous of how amazing this home is! When we plan our next trip to Hawaii, we'll definitely be reaching out to Harry again. Thanks again, Harry, for your generosity and hospitality!

Absolutely Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

Not only was this home stunning inside and out, it was impeccably kept. Each room was decorated and adorned with fresh flowers from the outside floral landscape. Our family of 11 stayed very comfortably, cooking and relaxing both upstairs and down and thoroughly enjoyed every amenity provided. Harry was a wonderful host and catered to every request we had. We only saw him when we reached out for something, which he would immediately take care of.

The house itself is fully stocked with everything you could need, down to sunblock, coffee or condiments. The furniture was comfortable and clean, we even enjoyed an upgraded, brand new king sized mattress when a queen was advertised.

This home and its host are magnificent!
