The bedroom floor plan is the same for both upstairs and downstairs (consisting of 2 bedrooms, 1 King master suite and 1 Queen bed with additional full bath each).

About Louise Tower

I work for my husband's construction company and have been in Hawaii for almost 3 decades. We travel extensively for work and pleasure and know what it is I like and look for when renting 'homes away from home'. I strive for quality, modern, luxurious spaces with accommodating features that enhance a traveler's needs and comfort.

Louise Tower purchased this house in 2014

Why Louise Tower chose Kailua

Being fully remodeled from wall to wall and foundation to the roof, these homes were taken down to the bare shells and upgraded in every aspect. Everything except the exterior 4 walls and original foundation is new.

Kailua is my home and while I have bought, fixed up and sold many properties here and the outer-islands, this property appealed to me because of it's location. I got to design and remodel these homes to my liking with a modern, simplistic and contemporary flair. Needless to say, I will not be selling these homes ever.

What makes this house unique

It's modern, its chic, its comfortable and contemporary with luxury furnishings and fixtures. No need to drive when one of the world's best beaches is just feet away. Amenities include an outside shower and kayaks to venture to the Mokulua Islands. We will continue to enhance this amazing location where families can gather together in one prime location with plans to add a tropical hot tub area after we install our PV. We stock our homes with supplies, toiletries and condiments that make traveling and the overall enjoyment of our home more convenient and accommodating.

Pictures do not do the Justice of the property!

  • 5 of 5

The property is spacious and well equipped with all sorts of cookware and beach gears. We love the nice view of the beach and the wind, which keeps

the house cool (AC is only available in the bedrooms). Property manager (Louise) is quick on responses and caretaker (Dave) gave us warm welcome when we arrived. Couldn't have asked for more. If anything, I wish we could've booked/stayed for a few extra days :).

Great Amenities for Families

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with 8 adults (4 couples) and 4 kids (ages: 13 months, two 2 year olds and a 4 year old). It was better than expected. The house is spacious with lots of common area spaces for play, rest and relaxation. The (two) kitchens (one upstairs, and another downstairs—convenient for grilling) come well-equipped for people who love cooking. If you're traveling like we did, you'll appreciate that it comes with a high chair, a clip-on high chair, and three umbrella strollers.

It's right across the street from Kailua beach and a quick walk to Lanikai. They have lots of beach stuff including a hefty cart that you can load a tent, snorkel gear and body boards onto.

Yes, there's bugs, but it's the tropics. You might find a stray gecko—but it's Hawaii. You'll even find those in a hotel room.

It's about a ten minute drive from town center with a Whole Foods, Foodland, Safeway, and Target. Plus a farmer's market.

We're looking forward to rebooking.

Excellent home and location!

  • 5 of 5

Extremely nice and comfortable house, located just across the street from the beach! Has a nice view of the beach also and a lot of adequate parking. Our only wish was that the living rooms had AC. However, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would love to return!!!

Great location and first class accomodations

  • 5 of 5

I spent a week here with my extended family. The location is very close to the beach, a short walk past two houses, cross a (busy for Hawaii) street and you are at the entrance to the beach. The beach itself is very kid friendly with soft sand relatively shallow descent and well protected from the big waves. The house is very nicely appointed with coffee makers, rice cookers, and full kitchen equipment for both floors. There was enough room in the second floor living area for the entire 9 person group to hang out together without feeling at all cramped, while people seeking private time could always find some in their air-conditioned rooms or porch or garage playroom etc. Louise (property mgr) et al were extremely responsive to requests and our needs and were always a text message away. We're very happy we booked this place and had a wonderful time. Thanks!
