About Grady & Carole Geske

We are happily retired in Kailua. Grady is a career Marine (helicopter pilot, Vietnam era) followed by a second career in Cruise Missiles. Carole is retired teacher. We have a large family (10 children and 16 grandchildren) mostly living on West Coast of Mainland. We enjoy living the aloha spirit in Kailua.

Grady & Carole Geske purchased this studio in 2005

Why Grady & Carole Geske chose Kuulei Tract

Having traveled and lived throughout the United States for over 40 years, we have found our Heaven on Earth-Kailua by the Sea.

What makes this studio unique

We feel like we are experiencing a five star resort of our own every single day. Surrounded by 20 various species of tropical palms, waterfall, colored lights and warm heated swimming pool in total privacy is so relaxing after a day hiking or on the beach. We love to share our little corner of the Islands.

Guestbook comments from the owner

It's not the house nor the weather that makes a stay at the Seabreeze special; It's the lovely and caring hosts Carole & Grady. Always there when you need them and also when you think you don't. Hope to return in the near future. We Loved the stay! Mahalo

An oasis in paradise

  • 5 of 5

Grady and Carole have a wonderful layout with access to a a private and larger lanai, beautifully maintained property with quick access to the beach and nearby shops and resturants. They provided great hospitality with recommendations, beach supplies and a well stocked mini-frig. We could not be more plreased with our stay and lookforward to returning.

Beyond our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at the SeaBreeze in Kailua for 5 days. After booking the rental, I was initially apprehensive as I have never used VRBO before and was not sure I selected the best rental for my needs as they all seem to sound pretty good on their website. We were not disappointed. The pictures did not do it justice. The rental is spacious, clean, quiet, private and comfortable. The pool, landscaping and living space for the rest of the house is beautiful. Grady and Carole are extremely hospitable, friendly and thoughtful. Our minifridge was stocked with various drinks (soda, beer, juice and a bottle of wine). There was a basket of fruit and snacks in the room. After checking in, we enjoyed a glass of wine with Grady and Carole and then again on our last evening.The following day, Grady gave us an unsolicited quick personal tour of Kailua, pointing out good restaurants and shops and beach access. They opened their home to us and did not mind us sharing their living space with them. Since it was our first time in Oahu, we spent most of our time sight seeing in/near Honolulu (about a 35 minute drive). I would definitely recommend the SeaBreeze and would not hesitate to stay there again if I return to Oahu.

Wonderful stay at the Seebreaze

  • 5 of 5

We had a truly wonderful stay at the Seebreaze in Kailua. Carole and Grady greeted us when we arrived at their beautiful apartment and gave us a tour of Kailua which we very much enjoyed. Their insights were very helpful when choosing were to eat out after a busy day at the beach :-)

The apartment is within close walking distance to one of the most beautiful beaches on the island (Kailua Beach), but there is also free parking at the beach. It is also within walking distance to the town center with Whole Foods, Target, Safeway, and many great restaurants. We absolutely recommend trying Hibachi, which is a small fish market that serves delicious poke. Thanks to Carole's and Grady's attention to detail - starting from the Welcome-Basket, to the well-stocked fridge, all the way to the beach equipment - there was nothing else we could have asked for. The garden setting was very relaxing. The location was perfect for us, so close to the beach. With our rental car we took several day trips to other areas of the island. We very much enjoyed our stay and can't wait to come back when we visit Oahu again. Mahalo!

another perfect stay

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here before and had such a wonderful time it was the only place we considered for our trip back to Oahu. Perfect spot for just the two of us, but the hosts welcomed our son and his family for swimming in the beautiful backyard pool. Waves were rough during our visit and the pool was ideal for the little ones. We know we can count on a comfortable stay in a beautiful setting with gracious hosts. It doesn't get any better.

Owner's Response: Our goal is for all guests to "feel at home." We are pleased that Kate & Doug too have felt that experience remains at The Seabreeze.

Bliss at the beach

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect get away location! Not only is it two blocks to one of the most beautiful beaches in the islands, but the property was beautiful and the room was lovely! A fridge stocked with great food, use of the BBQ, swimming pool, hot tub and any small amenity a person might need when on vacation at the beach are just some of the things that were so thoughtfully provided. Carole and Grady could not have been more kind or generous and, as a female traveling solo, I was comfortable and felt at home and at ease immediately. I can't wait to return. Thank you Carole and Grady for everything:-)
