About Katy Cai

I grew up in Kailua, steps from beautiful Lanikai beach. After living on the East Coast and traveling throughout Europe and Asia, I've come to appreciate this small corner of Oahu as one of the most unique and spectacular places in the world. The only thing that exceeds my love for Hawaii is my love for Kailua. I hope you will feel the same spark during your visit here.

Katy Cai purchased this house in 2014

Why Katy Cai chose East Oahu

Our family friends who live abroad fell in love with Kailua and then once more with this particular property. For all the same reasons mentioned in its description, they found they're little piece of heaven in what is already paradise. Because the majority of their time is spent away from Hawaii, their hope is to share their new found love for this island with visitors from around the world.

What makes this house unique

The neighborhoods of Kailua and Lanikai are extremely desirable. Homes are hard to come by and typically very old. That's what makes this property a gem. Not only was it built in 2007, it sits within a small secluded and private gated community. Yet all of this does not take away from it's prime location - directly across the street from magical Kailua Beach. It really doesn't get much better than this!

Relaxing stay!

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 10- grandparents, two sets of parents and four young children- we had such as relaxing vacation! You can't beat the proximity to Kailua beach. The pool was great for a break from the beach. The indoor/outdoor living was great for our family when prepping meals, enjoying the sun, and when others wanted a break from the sun. The house is spacious with good sized bedrooms and bathrooms. Great amenities: beach toys, chairs, umbrellas for the beach, grill,and laundry! We found the home well kept, but the carpets could use a cleaning or be replaced in a few rooms.

Family and friends spent a week here and enjoyed every minute. It's close enough to everything but secluded enough to feel like you are away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Hope we get to visit again.

Staying at Katy's was a great experience from inquiries, booking, planning for arrival, checking in and out. Katy's communication was excellent and very flexible to accommodate our needs. We did not have to contact Katy once during our stay because everything was perfect. The house is as-described and had abundance of supplies throughout (towels, paper towels, tp, etc). Most importantly, Kailua beach is literally across the street. Great host, outstanding amenities, and excellent location. Thank you Katy for a memorable experience!

The property was great! Plenty of space for the whole family.

  • 4 of 5

Overall the stay was great! Couldn't beat the proximity to the beach. The property had lots of great items for the beach and pool nothing more in that area we could have asked for. Pool needed to be cleaned badly when we arrived and we couldn't use it the first 2 days but luckily the beach is right across the street. One of the sliding doors didn't lock and we tried to contact the owners with no response. All in all a great place and central location would definitely stay again

Owner's Response: Hi Ace! I'm so glad you folks enjoyed your stay at the house. My sincerest apologies about the door and the pool. I didn't receive an email, call or text from you folks though, so perhaps it didn't get through. But I wish I had know because we definitely would have taken care of both issues immediately.

Slice of paradise, with a few minor drawbacks

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5 plus 3 grandparents spent a wonderful week at this lovely house. The location is very good, away from but still accessible to the various sites around Oahu. There are 5 houses on this gated street and beautiful Kailua Beach is a 2 min walk away. Grocery stores and many restaurants were within a 5 minute drive. The backyard is fenced in, but there is minor noise from the elementary school on school days. There is minimal ocean view from the house, and one of the neighboring houses has second floor windows that open directly over the pool area (though we barely saw or heard them).

The layout of the house is excellent, with a large great room with wall-to-wall sliding doors to the pool area. The great room did get quite warm during the middle of the day - there is no A/C there and the large double fan didn't seem to heIp much; evenings were fine with a nice cross-breeze. The pool (with cool waterfalls) and hot tub were the center of activity for kids & adults alike. In terms of sleeping arrangements, the downstairs master suite has sliding doors that open directly to the pool and the outdoor shower is a cool feature. The TV room did have sliding doors that could be closed; however, the sofa bed didn't look very comfortable and there is no A/C in that room. The other bedrooms all had A/C. Two of the upstairs bedrooms were sizeable with their own bathrooms (one with a queen & TV, the other with 2 single beds but no TV). The third bedroom upstairs is comfy, but has no TV and no bathroom (either have to sneak into one of the bathrooms attached to the other 2 upstairs bedrooms or go downstairs to the common bathroom off the laundry room (which does have a shower).

Some of the amenities were a bit lacking, with I believe 1small bottle of shampoo/conditioner provided, so we bought our own shampoo and soap. The kitchen had plenty of dishes, silverware, pots/pans, appliances (including a rice cooker, coffee maker, & toaster), etc, but otherwise very little in terms of kitchen staples (beyond some cooking oil and a few spices). There is no water filter nor icemaker. The was a high chair and folding

Cleanliness was good, although there is visible minor wear and tear on the carpet, walls, furniture, etc.

Overall, despite a few minor points, we had a fun and very memorable week. The owner answered our 1 question promptly and issued our security deposit promptly also.

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

My friends and I rented this house to celebrate our joint retirements. The location is perfect. The house is on a private lane and across the street from Kailua Beach Park. Kailua is located on the windward side of the island (hence somedays it was too windy for the beach), but an easy commute to Waikiki, Pearl Harbor, and downtown.

The agent, Katy, was very responsive and easy to work with; the rental contract pretty straight forward. I would highly recommend working with her again.

The house itself is beautiful and spacious. However, my friends and I found it in need of many minor repairs and cleaning. Despite all this, we had a great time.
