Great Property

  • 5 of 5

The house was set up with everything you needed. It was modern and very clean. Nice pool. The location was great, close to town and the beach, and very quite. John and Cheryl were great hosts.

Great Kailua Property

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just spent a week at John and Cheryl's property and couldn't have been happier. It's a very comfortable home in a quiet neighborhood and it's only a five-minute walk to Kailua Beach, one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. John and Cheryl live in the adjacent property and were very responsive to the couple of questions we had. Everything was as promised. The king-size bed was very comfortable, the kitchen had everything we needed, and in addition to being close to the beach, it's only a 2-3 minute drive to downtown Kailua. Cheryl gave us great restaurant recommendations. Over Easy for breakfast, Cactus for drinks and tapas, and Champa Thai for curry. Enjoy.

Best vacation

  • 5 of 5

I am a little late in giving a review, but my husband, daughter, and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay in June. This was the perfect location. It was an easy walk to the beach, restaurants, farmer's market. There are great hiking spots nearby. The rental was very private and in a lovely neighborhood. We stayed in a resort the last couple of days of our trip and found ourselves wishing we had stayed here the whole time.

Luxurious Accomodations in Pristine Kailua, Short

  • 5 of 5

We want to say thank you to Cheryl and John for the best accomodations we ever had! Everything about this property makes you feel as if you're living as locals on the gorgeous island of Oahu! Private entrance and deck to leading to pool, gorgeous living space and kitchen! Washer Dryer, beautiful bathroom, all amenities and supplies a home away from home can offer! What more can you ask other than packing your bags and without hesitation booking your stay with these wonderful and accommodating property owners! Total privacy, your own parking spot, the list goes on! We had the best stay ever and are looking forward very much to our next Hawaiian adventure and staying here as guests in our favorite town of Kailua! Did we mention only a short walk to the most breathtaking beaches on all the island? Kailua, Lanakai, fabulous local restaurants and shops to choose from, only minutes away from Whole Foods! What more can you ask? Thank you Cheryl and John for the most fabulous accommodations and Hawaiian vacation we've ever had. This was our very first experience with VacationRentals and and we wouldn't hesitate to book again in the not so distant future! Did we mention our 7 year old son Alex finally learned to swim in your private pool? We cannot thank you enough for all the wonderful memories you've given us to share and recommend to all of our friends and family! We are already missing staying at your property and are very much looking forward to our return to Kailua!

Mahalo and Warmest Regards from New York!

Jerry, Bella & Alexander :)

Owner's Response: Mahalo Jerry, Bella and Alex, We are so thrilled to hear that our home exceeded your expectations. Hearing how Alex learned to swim in our pool was so special. Our boys are older now and so those happy sounds coming from the pool were most refreshing. You were lovely guests then and now we call you friends. We would love to host you again in the future and happy to hear that you have truly discovered the essence of our quaint little piece of Paradise we call Kailua. Best to you all, always! John and Cheryl

Upgraded, quiet, clean!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is nestled behind a large home in a quiet established neighborhood with its own separate entry. It has all the amenities you need including a small pool in back where we enjoyed our morning coffee and listened to the birds. Pictures are acurate except for the upgraded tiled pool beautifully designed with three honus at the bottom. The kitchen is fully equipped although we ate out, bathroom has a deep tub, and bed was comfortable. The only drawback was the tenants in the front home and their excercise equipment on back patio which was adjacent to the yard/pool area(???). Short two block walk to Kailua Beach and shopping. Wish we could have stayed longer!

New Year in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I brought in 2016 in this lovely rental. The rental property has a convenient separate entrance from the owner's house with a keyless lock for easy access. We enjoyed the pool and grilling in the rear, but the highlight was the location in Kailua. The beach is a short walk from the property (around five minutes) and is spectacular. Much nicer than the crowds at Waikiki. Also, downtown Kailua is a short walk in the opposite direction. Not only are there plenty of delicious restaurants to dine at, but if eating in is your thing, then a Whole Foods is right around the corner. The rental was super clean and the kitchen offered all the necessities for cooking your own meals. Also, the wifi was great and we were able to stream any tv program or movie with ease. The bathroom was great and the large tub was perfect for soaking after a long hike. Overall, I wouldn't hesitate renting here again and highly recommend it.
