About Katy Cai

I grew up in Kailua, steps from beautiful Lanikai beach. After living on the East Coast and traveling throughout Europe and Asia, I've come to appreciate this small corner of Oahu as one of the most unique and spectacular places in the world. The only thing that exceeds my love for Hawaii is my love for Kailua. I hope you will feel the same spark during your visit here.

Katy Cai purchased this house in 2014

Why Katy Cai chose Kailua

Location location location! Our home is steps from one of the most beautiful and popular beaches in the world. Why stay in the hustle and bustle of Waikiki when you can experience an authentic Hawaiian vacation at your very own beach house. Also feel safe and secure in a home situated within a private gated community.

The heart of Kailua town, a charming area with delicious restaurants, trendy boutiques and convenient grocery stores, is less than a 10 minute drive away. Whatever you envision as your ideal Hawaii getaway - kayaking adventures, poolside massages, sunset strolls on the beach - our cozy home puts it all at your fingertips.

What makes this house unique

The neighborhoods of Kailua and Lanikai are extremely desirable. Homes are hard to come by and typically very old. That's what makes this property a gem. Not only was it built in 2007, it sits within a small secluded and private gated community. Yet all of this does not take away from it's prime location - directly across the street from magical Kailua Beach. It really doesn't get much better than this!

Katy is an amazing host to work with. She is responsive and polite. The house is literally across a busy street (so be careful!) from a beautiful beach park. There's a great restaurant up the street (Buzz's) with a lethal MaiTai. A small market further up the street has great coffee and essentials, but you'll want to go to the Target in town for a more robust shopping trip.

The house is in a gated area with a few other units. Very quiet and peaceful. Be a good neighbor! If you are, your neighbors will invite you over for beers. :)

The house has plenty of linens, plates, silverware, paper products, laundry detergent, etc. We bought coffee filters, so the next group that rents the house - you're welcome. We were an all adult group of 8, so coffee is a MUST.

The pool was chilly, but no big deal. I can see where others might have an issue with it. There isn't a ton of seating outside on the lanai, but we made do with beach chairs. There's AC in two bedrooms. It DOES get warm in the other bedrooms, but you can work around it. The walk in closet is big enough to sleep in and it's part of a bedroom that has AC.

Washer and dryer are great. The dryer has a little note on it to tell you how to make it work. There seems to be an issue with the time setting, but again, not a big deal.

This was truly like staying in a relative's home. We are already talking about coming back!

Great Home and Excellent Location

  • 5 of 5

Just as advertised! We had a wonderful stay and would definitely come back. The only complaint my wife had, was she wished there were more washcloths. The home is very well maintained and the location excellent. Easy access to the beach across the street and plenty of restaurants near by to choose from. Thanks Katy!

Great location and great accommodations

  • 5 of 5

The house was fabulous. For an adult family of 8 there was plenty of space so no one felt crowded. The upstairs room and one downstairs room are not air conditioned. They were warm ,but cooled off at night. There's ceiling fans but having the floor fans made a big difference. The beach is busy this time of year ,so it's a huge advantage to walk across the street to go to the beach. It's an open floor plan so it's very group friendly. You do have to be quiet at night and even inside with the doors open your voice carry. I would recommend this beautiful home for any group.

Thank you Katy for helping answer any questions we had,even ones that didn't pertain to the house specifically.

Beautiful home near Kailua Beach!

  • 5 of 5

Upon arrival the house was very clean and have everything we needed for our weeks stay. It is located on a gated drive which we loved. The house was just a short walk from the beach and Buzz's Steak House! It is also a quick drive away from Whole Foods, the Pill Box Hike, and Lanikai Beach. The pool was clean and a great way to start the day! Check out was very simple! Would definitely stay here again!

We had a wonderful time staying here for three weeks. The house is great with lots of room for the Grandparents, the Parents, and the Grandchildren. Great location too, close to the beautiful Kailua beach and if you just wanted a quick dip we had the pretty swimming pool. The house is located in a quiet neighbourhood. Any questions were promptly answered by Katy. Thank you.
