Fantastic location and Hostess

  • 5 of 5

Perfect, safe, clean and unbelievably well stocked accommodation. Cheryl is a fantastic hostess and has thought of everything. Very well located for going anywhere on the island or just to hang out in Kailua. Made our vacation so special, Mahalo!

Best Beach & Everything you could ever need

  • 5 of 5

Cheryl's place is fantastic! She's truly thought of everything. She even has tupperware for your beach picnics! We made good use of the bikes and really enjoyed riding around the lovely town of Kailua. The bed is super comfy, great water pressure in the shower & the washer/dryer was really handy and she supplies the laundry detergent too! The kitchen was stocked extremely well & had everything for us to make nice meals at home. We didn't have to use the air conditioning often but it was really nice to put it on at night to cool down the bedroom. The location is very convenient to both the beach & town. You can easily walk or ride to either in about 10 minutes. We did find one restaurant we really enjoyed called Baci (italian) I'd recommend making reservations. You should also check out the farmers market for fresh fruit & veggies. Don't hesitate to rent Cheryl's place it's cute, convenient & has everything you'll need for an excellent stay in Kailua. Thanks Cheryl!

Beautiful property and wonderful hostess

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just came back after staying 5 nights at Cheryl’s place. The property is fantastic and we could not have asked for a better place to stay. The place was very clean and had everything we could have needed. It’s in a quiet neighborhood making it the perfect location for a relaxing vacation. The kitchen was fully equipped and the fridge was filled with all the condiments you needed for a simple breakfast, sandwiches or burgers. The access to an outdoor grill was great. Having a washer and dryer was also really nice. The air conditioning in the bedroom was very quiet so we were able to have good night’s sleep. The safe in the bedroom was great to store all our valuables. The Kailua beach is only a 2-3 minutes’ drive and we did not have any trouble finding a parking place every afternoon we went to the beach. Cheryl was so nice and always available if needed. She was happy to suggest some nice restaurants in the area and also offered to print some documents we needed for a tour we booked at the last minute.

In the end, we would totally recommend a stay here and if we ever have the chance to return to Kailua one day, we would certainly stay at Cheryl’s place again. Thank you so much Cheryl for being such a nice host and making our first visit to Hawaii a memorable vacation.

Awesome Stay in Kailua.

  • 5 of 5

I have to say that Cheryl's property was one of the best VRBO's I have stayed at. Cheryl seemed to have thought of everything, it was one of the best stocked for towels, shower gel, pots and pans, etc. It was great to have air conditioning in both the main room and the bedroom. The bedroom unit was very quiet and made for a good night's sleep. The lanai was very private and with the lanai covered it meant that we could sit outside come rain or sun - fantastic! I liked the fact that we had a safe as well so that we could leave our valuables while we went to the beach. Although it is within walking distance of the beach, we preferred to drive, particularly when you are carrying beach chairs, boogie boards, parasol, cool bags et al. Cheryl made us feel very welcome during out stay and was on hand if we needed anything.

I would totally recommend a stay here and should we decide to return to Kailua one day, we would certainly try to stay with Cheryl again.

What a GREAT vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The property owner provides absolutely everything needed for your comfort and convenience. This is a great location, quiet yet close to many attractions and within walking distance to one of the nicest beaches on the island. Downtown Kailua is only steps away with many excellent restaurants and gift shops. It's enjoyable to just walk around the town. We especially loved having breakfast or lunch at Cinnamon's or the Big City Diner. The owner is friendly and eager to help you out. She is knowledgeable about the area, and goes out of her way to make your stay there comfortable and amazing. Thank you Cheryl - we'll be back!

I am a 10 minute leisure walk to the most beautiful beaches in the world! A great walk through the neighborhood. You can stop and get a hamburger or sit and have cocktails before walking home. Maybe a shaved ice at the same place as President Obama! It's the best treat after a warm summer day at the beach. A 10 min walk in the other direction will lead you into kailua town, which offers shopping and great eateries.... Don't like walking, I have bikes you can get there with too. Small town community offering all the luxuries and amenities to meet every need.
