Simple and Great

  • 5 of 5

We had a great few days staying here. We were comfortable, could cook, in a great location. It was easy to drive all over the island from here and we could walk to a beautiful, lightly used beach!

Private and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Queen Suite was perfect for my needs. It was walking distance to my friend's house on the beach, that was crowded with family for a wedding celebration, yet I could walk or drive back for my own quiet space. I valued the feeling of safety and cleanliness. It had everything I needed for my stay and I would totally stay there again.

Would absolutely recommend

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the queen suite in Kailua for 4 nights in May of 2017. This was a great place to stay for 2 people. Here is what we loved about it:

- It is very quiet, except for the occasional dog barking. It is on a very quiet street and did not hear any traffic noise at all. The owners live in the same house but we could not hear them either.

- Very clean, like spotless.

- Location is ideal, only a 10 minute walk to Kailua beach, and a great home base for exploring the south and eastern sides of the island. In my opinion this is the most beautiful side of the island and away from the crowds in Honolulu. Lots of lush green mountains and the best beaches on the island. There is a Whole Foods and Foodland about 5 minutes away by car.

- Is well equipped with wi-fi, BBQ grill, beach chairs, towels, just about anything you would need.

- It is nicer than the photos, very cozy and a nice place to hang out in the mornings and evenings.

I cannot think of anything negative to say about it. They do have an adorable golden retriever who may greet you when you enter the yard, which may bother you if you are nervous of dogs, but he is absolutely harmless. I would definitely stay here again.

Comfortable, relaxing home base in beautiful Kailua, minutes from amazing beach

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I really enjoyed our once in a lifetime visit to Hawaii (Oahu). Ken & Laurie's place in Kailua is perfectly placed for enjoyment of a wonderful beach (miles long). So very glad we weren't staying in Honolulu with the crowds but were able to unwind and relax in this beautiful beach town. Our accommodation was all it needed to be: big bedroom with comfortable bed and full bath. The living space is tight but has all we needed as we were able to use the outside Bar-b-que to cook while we had a microwave and toaster oven and small fridge. We made full use of the Wi-Fi. It was great to come back 'home' after a day of exploring the island and make a home-cooked meal. Ken & Lori unfortunately had a family emergency to tend to during our stay but their son stepped in and ably took over as our host. We appreciated their attention to us and their caring to make our holiday home comfortable. (The box of chocolate macadamia nuts was a great treat!) We enjoyed our stay and only wish we could visit Hawaii again during our Canadian winters! It would be hard to come up with a better place to stay for location and value.

P.S. I'm a little nervous of large dogs but Ken's two golden retrievers were beautiful. The younger one is quite enthusiastic (!) but I learned he only wanted to get to know me. He won me over so that I enjoyed seeing him. Overall we had a great stay!

Great location, neighborhood, and owners!

  • 5 of 5

Came here for a mini staycation with my boyfriend and let's just say that this place was very welcoming and comfortable. Ken was very courteous and helpful from the beginning to the end. His dogs were super friendly and playful, wished we could have played with them more.

This place is minutes away from everything you need! 10-15 minutes to get to the movie theater, many eateries such as Cinnamon's and Boots and Kimo's, Target, grocery stores, Lanikai pillbox hike, and beaches. The neighborhood was very nice and quiet. Would definitely recommend to friends and family, and would rent this property again.

Also, thanks for the Christmas cookies! They were delicious and adorable!
