Beautiful apartment in a great location. Walking distance to grocery store and other conveniences. 5 minute drive to the beach. Convenient location for driving to the rest of the island. We had a wonderful stay here and thoroughly recommend this property.
Very easy and comfortable.
Walking distance to shops and short drive to beach.
Travelling from Australia (the land of beautiful beaches), nearby Kailua beach was a fantastic surprise.
Everything about this place was perfect. The apartment was very clean and well maintained. It’s located very conveniently to town and the beach. The kitchen is well stocked with pots, pans and everything you need to cook. We also thought the layout of the apartment was great and really worked out for my husband and me. It is a studio, but there’s more than enough room and is super cute. We loved everything about it!
Perfect place to stay in Kailua
What a wonderful space to find for our first time visit to Oahu. This apartment was very clean, comfortable and very well appointed. Well loved sitting on the lanai and the fact that there were so many windows that provided a lovely cross breeze. We also preferred this side of the island. It was closer to birding places we were interested in going, but far less traffic than the Waikiki side. It was still very easy to go into Honolulu when going against rush hour traffic. Meg and Rob were lovely hosts and offered help when we asked. We would definitely love to stay here again, when we return to Oahu.
GREAT PROPERTY, BEAUTIFUL RECENT RENOVATION, GREAT LOCATION
Beautiful second floor open concept apartment with all the necessary stuff for the stay. There is too many to list. Parking on the street, you do not get tickets.
Owners did a great job with the recent renovation. Looks and feels like brand new place.
Great location with pill box trail about (4 min drive) you can see it when sitting on the deck, Olomana trail (4 min drive), some of the best beaches in Hawaii (5 min drive) Lanikai beach and Kalama beach.
If you have a car North Shore is about 45 min drive, Kualua ranch (25 min drive), Makapuu look out point (15 min drive) along with many other nice spots along the east coast drive.
Lots of restaurants, stores (Whole Foods and Target) are within a few minute drive.
BBQ on the deck is a very nice addition when you are coming from a country where there is cold weather most of the year.
Would fully recommend this place to any couples or people with kids, this place is large enough to enjoy with two kids or two couples.
Owner is very quick to replying to any minor questions we had.
We had a relaxing stay in Kailua. This property is bright, clean,and contemporary just as the photos led us to believe. The ceiling fans were life savers quietly moving air. Everything we need was provided in an apartment setting. To sit outside on the lanai and watch the sunrise over the mountain was so peaceful. We also benefitted by seeing the sunsets out the opposite windows. I would recommend this second floor VRBO.
