About the property

Welcome to our beautiful Island cottage, nestled among lush tropical foliage. A separate cottage to relax and escape life's rigors, with your feet touching the sands of our world famous Kailua beach, a 10 minute walk, from your front door. Head in the other direction and a 10 minute walk takes you to shopping and dining. Our newly finished cottage boasts all of the upscale details and furnishings you would want for a lovely vacation getaway. A modern, fully stocked kitchen with new stainless appliances, and granite counters. A beautiful tiled bath (no bathtub) comes complete with plush towels, soaps, shampoo and conditioner. All splendidly appointed with Hawaiian artwork, Bali furniture, rugs, a comfortable Cal-king bed, full-size futon, 45' TV, internet, Wi-fi Blu-ray player, books, and so much more, all featured under an open beam vaulted ceiling.

Paradise isn't complete without your own covered lanai to relax in the morning with a cup of Hawaiian kona coffee, reading, an afternoon BBQ, or an evening cocktail, with the sounds of a waterfall at your doorstep. Comes complete with a beautiful outdoor tiled hot/cold shower.

The beaches of Kailua and Lanikai are rated among the most beautiful beaches in the world. Wind/kite surfing, kayaking, swimming, snorkeling, paddle boarding, all at your fingertips. Our quaint Kailua town is riddled with energy and availability. Joggers, walkers, skateboarders, boutiques, farmers markets (Thursday evenings and Sunday mornings), restaurants, and bus service throughout the Island. Catch a sunrise or moon rise from the beach, hike up the Ka'iwa Ridge Trail, or commonly known as 'Pillbox' hike, that overlooks Lanikai, and view the gorgeous blue, tranquil waters and Molulua 'Mokes' Islands.

Beach activity is available for your use, boogie boards, snorkel gear, beach mats, chairs, and coolers.

About Debora J. Anderson

My husband, son and I have lived in Kailua for 5 years. We are fairly new to the area, but have enjoyed it tremendously.

Debora J. Anderson purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Debora J. Anderson chose Kuulei Tract

We love Kailua compared to any other area on Oahu. The area offers up hiking, golfing, the best beach around, running and biking along the Lanikai loop, and let's not forget the incredible views and weather. Kailua is a great place to vacation.

Very Nice

  • 5 of 5

This was a nice place to stay. It was private, quiet and clean. I would recommend this cottage to anyone who is looking for a nice stay. The Andersons try hard to provide tenants with all the amenities. It is well stocked and thought out as to what one would need. Just bring your tooth brush and swim wear. Thanks Andersons.

Lives up to expectations!

  • 5 of 5

This is a gorgeous and well appointed vacation rental. Very private, although some of the neighbors are a bit loud. Close to town, and a 15 minute walk to Kailua Beach requiring crossing several streets including the busy round-about area fronting Kalapawi Market.

Spectacular cottage in the heart of Kailua

  • 5 of 5

Barry and Deborah’s cottage was truly wonderful and beautiful and beyond our expectations. Everything about the home was just perfect. Every little personal touch and decoration was so well thought out. The cottage was so very comfortable and homey. It had great open space and was very private and secluded. The cottage has everything you need on a vacation or long stay and is central to everything in Kailua - town or beach. We have stayed many places in Kailua but Deborah and Barry’s cottage is above and beyond the rest.

Amazing, private space in a great location

  • 5 of 5

This place far exceeded our expectations. My wife and I stayed here with our 5 year old son for a few days...the detached cottage is huge and decorated beautifully. Our son slept on the futon with no issues. The kitchen has everything you would need to cook full meals, the bedroom has a nice king bed with a spacious closet, the washer/dryer area out back is great, and they even had beach chairs, toys, and towels for our use. They thought of everything to make our Kailua experience perfect. We would definitely stay here again!

Beautiful cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Great location, clean, and comfortable! Would recommend to anyone wanting to stay clear of super touristy areas like Waikiki - still an easy drive or bus ride to the strip. Mahalo, Deb and Barry!
