Kailua Getaway

  • 5 of 5

It was nice for a change for the VRBO to be nicer than expected. The pictures don't do Meg and Rob's vacation home justice. My husband and I spent a week here with our 6 month old baby daughter. Everything was very clean, fresh and cozy. The bed and linens were very comfortable. There is a walk-in closet in the bedroom which was great to store all of our luggage. All areas are very spacious. We did have an issue with the ceiling fan in the main room however it was replaced the next day and the owners were very apologetic for the inconvenience. There is a Safeway and a Starbucks a block away however if you want to venture down town or to the beach it is about a 5 minute drive. If you come to Kailua and stay here you must check out Whole Foods. When we didn't feel like going out for dinner we picked up groceries from Whole Foods and used the BBQ on the private deck. We would highly recommend this VRBO as it offers a lot of value for the price.

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.

Private retreat

  • 4 of 5

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.

We totally enjoyed our visit to Oahu. This little place was the perfect location for our adventures each day. The house is very nice and located in a great area close to beaches, shopping and anything else you might want to do.

The location of the property was perfect. Not far from shopping, restaurants, beautiful beaches . . . It was quiet and peaceful and had all the amenities of home. First time we stayed in Kailua and the windward breezes were awesome.

Perfect Beach Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Meg's apartment is truly the perfect beach getaway! It was close to everything you need and 5 minutes to the best beaches for swimming and kayaking. The town is a gem, the views were incredible and the apartment was spotless. We had an amazing time and would definitely love to stay here again when we're back in Oahu!
