Kailua Escape - Big beautiful house near Lanikai and Kailua beaches

Bedrooms 3
Space 2,000 sq. ft.
Property type house
Minimum Stay 4 nights


About the property

Newly renovated 3 Bedroom, 2 Bath house with enclosed yard 2000 ft Open concept

Located in an upscale, quiet, residential neighborhood, our home has 1 king bedroom and 2 bedrooms each with two twin beds. The house is very spacious with a newly remodeled modern kitchen, with all the modern conveniences! A lovely quiet retreat. Very easy walk to Lanikai and Kailua beaches (5 minutes) but tucked away so out of the main strip!

From the house it is an easy walk to Kailua Beach, Lanikai Beach, Buzz's, Island Snow or Kalapawai Market. The center of activity in the house is an open concept kitchen, dining and living room with high ceilings, hardwood floors and lots of light. There is a patio with an outdoor table and chairs off the living area, and a large enclosed yard with tropical landscaping. The neighborhood is very quiet at night.

The kitchen has all new appliances, and the house has a washer & dryer, cable tv, high-speed internet and wifi, and off street parking, a very nice escape. This is our family home, and there are lots of games to entertain your kids.

No large groups or parties, please. To respect our neighbors, this property is not suited for groups looking for a place to have a party, a family reunion, etc. It is really a quiet retreat for a group of up to five people (or perhaps one or two more in certain circumstances) hoping to enjoy Kailua and Oahu.

About Jonathan and Jenny

Our family moved to this neighborhood in Kailua and we love the location, proximity to beaches and quietness. It is a family setting - not a tourist spot.

Jonathan and Jenny purchased this house in 2012

Why Jonathan and Jenny chose Kailua

This is a great part of Kailua because it is away from the noise yet close enough to walk to two of the nicest beaches on Oahu, to bike to town or to Buzz's, or to get coffee/breakfast at Kalapawi market. We've been working to renovate our home for two years and it is a lovely, large open space that is great for a relaxing getaway for family and friends.

What makes this house unique

Location, Location, Location - Plus plenty of clean open space... it's a delightful spot! Easy walk to the beach. Pleasant walk to Kalapowai Market (10 minutes) for coffee or Buzz's (6 minutes) for dinner.

Excellent accommodation in Kailua

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy with this house in Kailua. It was clean, spacious, and comfortable. The location is great—walking distance to the beach. It easily accommodated 6 people. We would definitely come back to this house in the future.

Away from it all, yet convenient

  • 5 of 5

Jonathan and Jenny's beautiful house is just as described and pictured. My friends and I made up a group of six and enjoyed a comfortable stay at the house for a total of 4 nights. The house is clean and extremely spacious. Plus, it's conveniently located: steps away from Kailua Beach Park, a few minutes to the Pillbox hike, and a short drive to downtown Kailua for a great selection of restaurants (e.g. Boots & Kimo's, Cinammon's, Zippy's, Hibachi, etc.). There's even a Target, Whole Foods, and Foodland nearby. All this, and we got to stay away from the chaos that can come with Waikiki. Plenty of towels, 4 bodyboards, and a couple of chairs were provided to make for some easy beach days. One drawback that my group found was the lack of an ironing board, although an iron was available.

Beautiful home in Kailua

  • 4 of 5

We stayed 10 days in Oct and had an amazing time. Home is in a great location in quiet Kailua, 5 min walk to great beaches. Home has been recently updated and is clean, bright and open with lots of space and everything you need including beach toys, beach towels, etc. No microwave which made it a bit difficult with kids, so we borrowed one for the week. AC in main area of home works great, back bedrooms can get warm during day, but cool down nicely during the evenings so it wasn't a problem. Wifi worked well throughout the home. Owners were easy to get a hold of and communicated well with us as needed. While we drove to nearly every beach around Oahu, Lanikai and Kailua beaches right down the street are among the very best. Saw lots of sea turtles at Lanikai beach right around the corner. Overall, I'd say this was among the best places we've stayed in Oahu and we would definitely return.

Charming home, loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful property located within 10 minute walk to Lanikai beach. The house is fully stocked with everything you could possibly want (lots of towels, beach gear, fully stocked kitchen, new washer and dryer, and even toys for the kids). Very quiet safe neighbourhood, peaceful and relaxing. Rooms have fans and louvered windows and living room has air conditioning (we were here in October and it was comfortable during the day and night). There is a separate unit for a separate tenant with its own entrance and yard - we didn't come across them during our stay except seeing them once through the sunroom windows. We had no trouble getting in to the property even though we arrived late at night.

Can not say enough great things about this lovely home - will definitely return.

Beautiful home in quiet neighbourhood close to the beach

  • 5 of 5

The house was very clean and spacious. Had everything we needed with regard to kitchen supplies. Lots of room to stretch out. The neighbourhood is a quiet residential area with beautiful homes and gardens. However, you're just a quick walk down the hill to a great beach. Can walk to Buzz's easily. Other amenities not that much further. Lots available in town in terms of groceries and places to eat.

Would definitely book again!

Kailua is a favorite destination for visitors to Oahu. It's a great small town on the windward side of Oahu, with charming beaches, great restaurants, a Whole Foods, and lots to do and see. It's a wonderful alternative to busy, urban Waikiki with its hotels and apartment buildings.
