Very Welcoming Owners
Kathy and Val went out of their way to accommodate us and make sure things were going well.
The location is literally one block to a small cut through to the beach.
The beach is wonderful as the waves are just the right size for boogie boarding. The depth of water stays at about 4 to 5 feet for quite a distance with a very sandy bottom. They don’t advertise it well but they have two beach chairs, two boogie boards and a large mat and some snorkel gear available for use. They also had a small cooler and some ice packs in the freezer.
The TV was good with good cable access but when the AC was on it was almost too loud to watch TV. Internet also worked fine.
We didn’t cook only had breakfast in the room but if you were wanting to eat in more often your options to cook would be limited without a stove or oven.
Since there was no back to back booking they kindly let us keep our luggage a bit longer at the house as we had a late evening flight.
30 minutes to Hanauma Bay via hey 72
30 minutes to diamond head via hey 63.
Also did the movie tour at Kualoa Ranch. If we had booked earlier we would have liked to do the ATV tour as it looked like fun.
Mormon Temple in Laie was beautiful and thought the Polynesian Cultural Center was a great value and best maintained the various island cultures.
If this location seems to meet your needs Kathy and Val will try their best to make it a great experience.
Aloha D & D,
Thank You SO MUCH for taking the time to write this review. We appreciate the positive comments and are glad that you enjoyed your time here in Kailua.
Shucks -- we are sorry that the AC was a bit too loud while trying to watch TV. Also unfortunately with our zoning laws we aren't able to have a regular size stove or oven. But most of our guests LOVE grilling on the full sized BBQ grill on the patio. There is also a 2 burner hot plate and convection oven if they prefer to prepare meals inside the rental. Glad you folks were able to enjoy eating out at the various restaurants.
We truly enjoyed hosting you both and hope to see you again someday.
A Hui Hou (until we meet again)

Many thanks for a comfortable stay
We had a nice stay thank you. Positives included friendly hosts, clean accommodation, enough towels for a fresh one every day, beach stuff and relatively quiet neighbourhood.
Not so good included no couch (only single chair), poor lighting, no table, poor fan, some beach stuff in poor condition though still usable. The dogs got yappy and loud at times.
Overall, we had a good stay, enjoyed ourselves and were comfortable.
Thank You Vanessa for taking the time to submit this review. Glad you and your family "overall" had a good stay.
I apologize about our yappy and loud doxies. That happens usually when our neighbors come home from work and they are just alerting us that someone is near our property. It's a tough job but we are thankful they are such good watch dogs. The pictures on the website don't show a couch and there is a small table in the rental with 2 stools and also if you wanted a chair with a back for the table there were 2 next to the refrigerator. As far as the lighting goes there was the one on the ceiling connected to the ceiling fan and then 2 tall stand up lamps that you could have moved anywhere you wanted to within the rental as well as another lamp on the night stand. Also I apologize for the beach stuff in poor condition -- I am guessing you are meaning the chairs. You should have let us know and I would have gladly purchased new ones. In fact I just did that yesterday. Being so close to the beach the rust just has its field day and collects on everything.

Kathy and Val have truly created a "House of Sweet Dreams." Lovely yard, welcoming Hawaiian decor, and all the amenities. Safe and quiet neighborhood with reserved parking just a short jaunt from beautiful, uncrowded Kailua Beach. Perfect room for two!
WOW -- Thank You SO MUCH for this AWESOME review. We sure are glad you enjoyed yourself at the House of Sweet Dreams. It was a pleasure hosting you for your stay in Kailua. A Hui Hou -- Until we meet again.

Studio with very nice patio across from best beach
Hosts are very friendly, all is sparkling clean.
Thank You for taking the time to submit this review.
We enjoyed having you girls for your short stay here in Kailua. We are extra careful to have the rental sparkling clean. We have stayed at vacation rentals where that wasn't the case and it was very disappointing to us.
Hope to see you again sometime.
Kathy & Val
Our stay in Kailua was perfect not only because Kailua is beautiful but because Kathy’s place is wonderful! Val was great showing us around and the unit has everything (and more!) that you need. Perfect location - easy walk to the beach - and easy walks to other amenities (or a very short drive if you don’t want to walk). We loved it and if we’re ever back, we’d definitely stay here again. Mahalo Kathy & Val!!!
Awe S. & A.,
Thank You SO MUCH for taking the time to submit this AWESOME review. We are HAPPY you enjoyed your stay here in Kailua and we LOVE IT when folks truly appreciate our piece of paradise.
Kathy & Val
Location of Dreams!
Kathy is a wonderful host! We were iso comfortable and the icing on the cake was the beautiful location of her home in Kailua! The walk to the beach was priceless and Lanikai just a few minutes drive away was filled with sunrises that felt like heaven on earth. We highly recommend staying here and we look forward to our next opportunity to return!
Awe -- Thank You SO MUCH S.M. for this AWESOME review. Val & I truly enjoyed meeting you and your husband and your ADORABLE baby girl. We are THRILLED that you folks were so comfortable. Hoping your stay at Turtle Bay on the North Shore was Fun Filled and then also on Maui that you all enjoyed your stay. We hope to see you folks again for a future vacation. A Hui Hou -- Until we meet again.
With Much Aloha,
Kathy & Val.
