Kalama Tract Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)

HAWAII TAX ID # W01993578-01

Hale O KuhiKuhi HiHi' O -- 'Ha Lay O Coo Hee Coo Hee Hee Hee O'

Aloha and Welcome to the 'House of Sweet Dreams.' If you were able to pronounce the name of our vacation rental let us Congratulate you on your first Hawaiian language lesson.

Our quaint and cozy, large, one bedroom, Apartment unit is located half a block from world famous Kailua Beach. Kailua meaning 'two seas' is located on the southeastern shore on the island of Oahu, Hawaii.

Come and take a tour with us:

Imagine starting your day with a complimentary cup of fresh brewed Kona Coffee and a sunrise walk on the three mile stretch of pristine white sand beach. With its gentle trade winds and constant water temperatures ranging from 70-75 degrees Fahrenheit (20-25 degrees Celsius), Kailua Beach is a perfect setting for year round water-sports. Some of the activities you may partake in include: swimming, surfing, windsurfing, kitesurfing, snorkeling, body surfing, boogie boarding, kayaking, etc.

There are other water activities nearby including: scuba diving, deep sea fishing, glass bottom boat rides, jet skiing, para-sailing, submarine voyage, etc.

Our 'Hawaiiana' decor gives you the true island feeling of 'home away from home.' Palm trees, antique rattan furniture, 'ukulele' paper towel holder, and kitchen 'ukulele' dish towel rack are some of the unique accents of our unit that are found in no other part of the world. Along with the Bamboo towel bars in the bathroom this unit gives you a tropical feeling of truly being in the Pacific.

After a full day of water activities come back, crank up that Air Conditioning unit to prepare your surroundings for some much needed 'snooze' time. Embellish in a hot shower with complimentary 'local' island fragranced shower gels and lotions. It's time to take some 'R&R' (rest and relaxation). ** BAMM ** REVITALIZATION HAS OCCURRED!!!

By this time you have worked up quite an appetite. Kailua town offers quite a variety of restaurants ranging from casual to fine dining. Some of our favorites include: Los Garcias Mexican, Assagio's Italian, Buzz's Steakhouse, Champa Thai, Noboru Japanese, Big City Diner, Cinnamon's family, etc. There are also the regular fast food restaurants available including: McDonald's, Taco Bell, Jack-in-the Box, Papa John's Pizza, etc.

Another alternative might be to put your favorite foods on the Barbecue Gas Grill and dine on the Patio Lanai. However, and yet still another alternative might be to enjoy a full blown 'night on the town.' The Famous 'Waikiki' is a mere 30 minute drive into Honolulu. A more extensive list of restaurants is available and after dinner you may find a wide variety of music for your listening pleasure or visit some of the local nightclubs and enjoy dancing the night away until 4 AM.

You might not be a water enthusiast - there are various other activities to enjoy - including: golf, hiking, art or historic museums, sight seeing, Pearl Harbor Memorial, shopping, bicycling, Sea Life Park, Waikiki Aquarium, live theater, movies, sky diving, glider rides, etc.

Mahalo and 'Thank You' for coming on our tour we hope you enjoyed yourself as much as we enjoyed taking you on your tropical vacation memory that will last a lifetime. Bring your imagination to reality. You deserve to experience the 'House of Sweet Dreams.'

Guestbook comments from the owner

Kathy and Val,

Thank You for your warm hospitality last week during our 2 night stay at your rental. I have already highly recommended it to one of my teacher friends who wants to visit Hawaii someday. You sure do a great job of thinking of all the extras for making our stay most pleasant -- the orientation tour of the area, the beach supplies, the picnic table umbrella, the 'how to' folder -- everything was so perfect. Next time we'd like to stay longer.

Blessings to you both,

Julie and Bill

(now back in Michigan; when we left 2 weeks ago it was winter with 1 1/2 foot of snow but now the snow is mostly melted!)

For our 1st time in a VRBO home, Kathy and Valerie set the bar super high! It was simply perfect!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at “House of Sweet Dreams” for 5 weeks. We had a great time and felt right at home! Kathy and Val made sure we had everything we needed and much more! They are very nice and amazing peoples, as the weeks went by, we had the opportunity to get to know them both and became very good friends, but our privacy was still well respected! The location is perfect! A 2 minutes walk and you are on the most beautiful beach of the island of Oahu and within walking distance to the grocery and most stores. The apartment is very nice and super clean with a full equip kitchen. We were able to cook meals without any problems; there is also a nice gas BBQ at your disposition. The attention to details that we received from our hosts was simply the best. (Even a wagon to carry the beach equipment who was all provided!)

The next time we will travel to Oahu Hawaii won’t only be to visit the island but also to visit our dear friends Val & Kathy.”! We would recommend it to anyone traveling in Oahu, looking for a tranquil area and just 20 mins by car to Waikiki!

What an amazing time at the “House of Dreams”! Aloha ans Mahalo!

Above and beyond!

  • 5 of 5

We started our trip in another rental, where our worst fear came true, it was not as advertised! We were offered a refund if we could find other accommodations, so at 9pm we started our search, by noon the next day we were in our new rental and beyond thankful at Kathy's prompt response! The rental actual is nicer in person than pics show. The outside area is perfect for relaxing, it really is across the street from the beach. The property is immaculately clean and well kept! The AC works great, she said the shower water pressure was great and it was! Beyond that the owners were so amazing and welcoming! They made sure we had everything we needed for the beach, and I mean everything! Towels, chairs, mats, toys, even a wagon and beach bag to carry it all! They gave us recommendations for food and sight seeing. We are SO happy and thankful we got a chance to stay, we definitely want to go back!
