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 and accommodating features that enhance a traveler's needs and comfort.

Louise Tower purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Louise Tower chose Kailua

Being fully remodeled from wall to wall, these homes were taken down to the bare shells and upgraded from the ground up. 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 cottage unique

It's modern, its chic, its comfortable and contemporary with luxury amenities such as an outside shower, kayaks and paddle boards (soon to include a hot tub), enhance the amazing location with the best beach in the world, just feet away.

Very clean. Excellent location. Felt very private even though there were other rentals on site. Decorated very nicely. Comfortable. Two kayaks have whioles in them however. Really should remove them or get them fixed.

Newly renovated and super close to the beach

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 really enjoyed our stay in Kailua at the Ohana house. The beds we comfortable (2 bedrooms where my two children used the 2nd room with a trundle bed), the kitchen was well stocked with everything you need in a home. The property manager was very responsive to our few requests and also polite and friendly. We made use of the boogie boards. Of course, Kailua beach is one of the best in the world. We would absolutely stay here again.

Beautiful place and location!

  • 3 of 5

3 of the kayaks had leaks causing sinking and tipovers. More plates, coffee cups and silverware would be nice.

Very comfortable and clean little apartment right across paradise

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was everything we wanted it to be and more! To start, the place was very clean and comfortable. It came with fresh towels and beach towels and had all the necessary items required in the kitchen to make us feel like it was our home. It also came with some sundry items like oil, condiments and spices., which is nice because we cooked a lot of our meals and didn't have to buy all that stuff.

There were 4 of us staying there. Although the apartment has 2 bedrooms, it was a little crowded. What provided additional comfort though was the lanai which has a beautiful couch and bbq - perfect for taking in sunrises and sunsets - and you can see the ocean from there too! Loved having the option of either turning on the fans in all the rooms or putting on the AC on hotter days. You also get to use kayaks, snorkel equipment, coolers and chairs so no need to bring any of that. It's so convenient!

In terms of location, I couldn't ask for anything better. Kailua Beach is one of our favs and its about a 30 sec walk across the road. Our fav beach on the whole island is Lanikai and it's a 7-10 min walk which is perfect because it's hard to find parking in Lanikai. There are tons of cute restaurants and shop in the area too.

Lastly, the caretakers Dave and Tiffany are awesome! They are so accommodating and kind and anything we needed help with, they were easy to get a hold of. Very cool people. We will absolutely be back and will definitely be staying here again!!

Terrific location!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful place to stay. Kailua beach is right across the road. No need to fight for a parking space. It was so easy to pull the kayaks to the beach. The kayaking was safe and fun. The house was so comfy. We especially loved the deck and the views of the ocean. Missing the balmy weather now that we're back Minnesota.
