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!

Large home in a wonderful location. We will return!!!!

  • 5 of 5

The house was a nice size for grandkids, their parents and grandparents to enjoy - nine of us in all. Good sized bedrooms. Nice sized kitchen/dining area open to the living room. The only down side was there wasn’t enough seating in the living room so had to bring in patio chairs.

Everyone loved the pool!! We all appreciated the pool/beach chairs and toys. We did purchase two new beach umbrellas and three new boogie boards and left them there for other renters to enjoy!!

The location was perfect!! We will be back!!!!!!

Great location near beach, amazing home with pool

  • 5 of 5

Traveling with a toddler isn’t easy so my husband and I wanted to stay in a nice, spacious home within walking distance from the beach. This house was perfect. It is gated so we felt safe, had enough space so our son could roam freely, and the beach was across the street so we easily strolled over with sand toys in hand. For those times we didn’t go to the beach, we took full advantage of the pool in the backyard. Private and large, the backyard is a getaway in itself.

We also brought my parents, grandma, and friend along for the trip. With four bedroom, we fit comfortably with room to spare! We enjoyed the kitchen and large dining area; great communal space to enjoy each other’s company. The grocery store is a short drive from the house so we were able to stock up the fridge since we didn’t want to eat out too much.

I would highly recommend this property. Katy was lovely to work with: professional, responsive and efficient. I can’t wait to stay here again!

Amazing time in Kailua!!

  • 4 of 5

We had 5 adults staying in the Kailua house. There was plenty of space for everyone to spread out. Katy was very accommodating and answered our emails quickly both before and during our stay. Access to the beach could not have been easier and the beach area was not crowded at all. Pool toys and beach chairs were available for our use.

Kailua is a beautiful town and we enjoyed shopping and dining in the area. The views are beautiful in every direction. There is a Target and a grocery store nearby which were very convenient.

There were several small drawbacks that we noticed during our stay. There was noticeable debris at the bottom of the pool and it was not cleaned during our stay. There are two bedrooms that are not air conditioned - of these, the upstairs bedroom (the one with two twin beds) has a lot of windows and got a good airflow; however the downstairs bedroom (queen bed) remained uncomfortably warm overnight. The bed mattresses were not great, we did purchase a mattress topper at Target which helped.

Overall we had a great time and would stay here again.

Location!

  • 5 of 5

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!
