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

Wonderful Kailua Experience

  • 5 of 5

While the weather in Kailua didn't go the extra mile to make us comfortable, Carole and Grady did! Grady surprised us with an introduction to Kailua by driving us around town our first morning and pointing out the beaches, restaurants, stores, etc... that was great! Trust his recommendation of Baci Restaurante ... best food and value we had in Kailua. The room was bigger and better than we expected. Clean, roomy and comfortable. Loved the private lanai and the short walk to coffee/breakfast/beach. Thanks for sharing your special place with us Carole & Grady!

Owner's Response: Mahalo Bob & Britt, Our goal is for you to make yourselves at home, and we are glad that you did! Our favorite Kailua restaurant, Baci Bistro, is now yours also. We regret that we cannot control the weather & we were delighted to see that you two were able to maximize the sunny parts of our island during your visit. A Hui Ho !

Grady and Carole were very welcoming! Do try every suggestion they offer! This place was awesome and perfect. Fridge was stocked, greeted with leis, & sharing their piece of the island. Carole put some epsom salt in the hot tub for us after hearing we went on a hike POW wonderful! Plenty of privacy! Grady, thank you for your service; Carole & Grady, thank you for being so welcoming!

5 Star in Every way!

  • 5 of 5

We were privileged to stay at the upscale SeaBreeze for a week and loved it.

Carole and Grady are master hosts and provided everything we needed to feel at home in their wonderful Kailua home. Hopefully we will have the opportunity to return and stay longer. This was by far the nicest VRBO property we have visited over the many years of staying with VRBO.

Our sincere thanks for the Hawaiian hospitality and Aloha we felt. Jim & Judy

Great lil' B n B location

  • 4 of 5

All one really needs to do is browse prior reviews to see all the positive comments about Grady and Carole. Genuinely nice people who open their house to guests- as well as to others in need. The Seabreeze is a perfect location- quiet street, 5 minute walk to a stunning beach, and about the same distance from downtown. You can walk over to Buzz's even. Really you couldn't get a better location to not be car-bound and Kailua is a great town to spend some time in. The only thing to note is that this is a true B n B experience rather than a completely separate vacation rental. The Seabreeze room is accessed through the house and while Grady and Carole's room is separated from the house by an outdoor living space, they do use the kitchen and laundry room and there may be others staying in the house (there was a family of 5 unexpectedly staying when we were there- they were in town for medical care and Grady and Carole graciously opened their house to them- this is the type of people they are, and I would certainly never complain about someone's altruism, but it can make for a less private stay than anticipated). The only other caveat I would share is that oddly the locks are reversed on the interior doors so that you cannot lock your room. This goes for the bathroom as well- so you need to be comfortable leaving your belongings, as well as sleeping, and showering (or using the bathroom) without being able to lock any doors. First time I have encountered that and it did take some getting used to. But the positives most definitely outweigh these caveats.The pool and hot tub were always made available to us and we certainly felt welcome, and the grounds are beautiful.I would certainly return if fortunate enough to find myself back on Oahu!

Owner's Response: We don't solicit reviews but glad to have input. We had a handyman over to the house and reversed the locks. When we had the room and doors painted several months ago, they got reversed.We would never go into anyone's room when they are here.Fresh towels are often left by the door. Wish you would have mentioned your apprehension upon check in. Most of our guests enter and exit through the private side gate. It does get wet on the stones when we have rain. So glad you used the front door and were safe. We live Aloha and when my daughter from Japan asked us to house a military family for their son's medivac to Oahu, we didn't hesitate. We were concerned about the medical emergency. Happy to report the child and family are doing well with treatment back in Japan. Often we don't see our guests daily.They exit and enter through their own gate. We were glad you came out and enjoyed the hot tub daily. Please know that we provide a private and quiet atmosphere . In 15 years, this is the first time that we have honored a last minute medical emergency. We have 10 children and 16 grandchildren and they all abide by the no visit rule when we have B&B guests. To future visitors, we live aloha and look forward to providing you a quiet, private atmosphere with love and sunshine. MAHALO
