Bedrooms 3
Space 1,500 sq ft
Property type house
Minimum Stay 5 - 7 nights


About the property

3 bedroom, 2 bath, bonus office with AC, in a great neighborhood.

E komo mai, welcome to our home in paradise. Our well equipped tropical home is located in the beach town of Kailua, world famous for it's white sandy beaches and bay. It's new on the market and is conveniently located less than a mile from both the beach, downtown Kailua and the H3 freeway. It's a 5 minute bike or car ride, 16 minute walk to a public right of way to our white sandy shore line of Kailua Bay.

Our home is on a cul de sac lined with coconut trees affectionately known as Duck Lane to all Kailuians as the street is parallel to one of the two water ways that gives Kailua (Two Waters) it's name. A ride down Duck Lane ends at ObamaVille, the beach where President Obama spend his Hawaiian holidays. A step out side the house provides views of the the Koolau Mountain range as well a our neighborhood's own Kalaheo mountain with hiking trails and stunning views of Kailua Bay.

The three bedroom home is well equipped and has been newly renovated with a deluxe new kitchen, a combination of new laminate wood and acid stained concrete floors that match the recently installed concrete kitchen counter tops. Two of the bedrooms have been recently extended and upgraded including a master suite with plantation shutters looking over a large, lush back yard with it's own private deck, as well as an on-suite bath with an extra large soaker tub. We've recently added a new laundry room off the master bath with new washer and dryer, and a new outdoor shower.

The large extended Queen bedroom has a bonus attached office with AC for those that want to get some quiet work done while in paradise or planning your day's activities. Enjoy using 300 mbps high speed download cable internet and WIFI. We have a family room and large enclosed patio with open beam ceilings and a dinning area that seats six. We also have ceiling fans in just about every room. The third bedroom has a full size bed.

We have carefully landscaped the grounds with lush tropical haupu`u and lau`a`i ferns, tulip wood, all spice, apple banana and papaya trees. Two well equipped ouside paver decks provide morning and evening refuges from a full day of sightseeing and beaching. A gas BBQ grill is also included.

The town's primary bike lane is right outside our door. Ride the ten mile round trip bike path and see all of Kailua. We are also a block a way from Kawai Nui Marsh dike walk, hike and bike path which also takes you on a scenic route into Kailua town.

This house has a two bedroom apartment attached where our son, his wife and our grandson live. The apt is separated by two double wall construction and you have your own fenced in yard for privacy. Mike is the resident mountain biking and surfing expert. Ask him about Mike's Trail (biking and hiking), which serpentines up the mountain two blocks away with fantastic views of Kailua, or where to get ono (excellent) Boston Style Pizza.

About Bob Rogers

Life long, kama`aina (local) owners Barbara and Bob bought this house in 1985 in a premier Coconut Grove neighborhood and have been steadily upgrading it with extended bedrooms, studio/office, tropical landscaping and most recently a deluxe upscale modern kitchen. Bob aka Hawaii recording artist Coconut Joe, built his studio and recorded both CJ CDs in this house. The studio with AC has been turned into a large bedroom with office space. With the kids having moved on, Barbara and Bob have moved to a smaller home on the North Shore and now make their lovely Hawaiian home in Kailua available for others to enjoy.

Third generation kama`aina, Bob bought the house he was raised in. As owner/manager he will be able to provide you with a unique perspective of his home town and the outdoor activities it's well known for. Ask him about his favorite restaurant, bike ride, hiking trail, or which public access has the best waves for surfing, boogie boarding or little ones.

Why Bob Rogers chose Coconut Grove

Kailua is our home town Our kids grew up here. It's a great, well planned community, and our neighborhood is extra special with it's coconut tree lined lane and our kama`aina neighbors. Our beach house proximity is great, a mile from the beach and Kailua town, on the bike lane, close enough to the H3 freeway which will get you to the rest of the island with ease.

What makes this house unique

Large, beautifully landscaped yard surrounds this generous 3 bedroom, 2 bath home with bonus office. Once bedroom and office have AC. Located right on Kailua's bike lane, a short 15 minute walk or 5 min bike ride to the beach or Kailua town.

Wonderful in every way!

  • 5 of 5

Just great - the house, the location, the host, everything. It is a beautiful house and yard, comfortable and fully stocked. The location is wonderful - nice quiet neighborhood, walking access to the beach, close to shopping, restaurants, activities like kayaking, Honolulu, etc. Bob could not have been nicer or more helpful - not that we had any problems at all, other than some of the booking process, which is really a website issue, not Bob's issue. This is definitely where we will be staying during future visits.

Beautiful home in a quiet location, perfect for families

  • 5 of 5

Thanks Bob and Barbara for a lovely and relaxing stay at your beautiful home. It was the perfect spot for a family holiday, with nice open plan lounge room and kitchen and a huge backyard for the kids to romp around in. A lovely area too, very lush and not too far from the beach. Highly recommended.

Great hosts, great home, great weather...simply great. From being greeted by Alissa and Aiden upon arrival to the beautiful sunrises each morning to zip lining at Kualoa Ranch to Mike’s Trail to racing was an awesome stay. Mahalo!

Beautiful home in a very convenient location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this home for 5 nights and it was the perfect accommodation and location for our family. We had 6 people traveling together, including our two children, and the home was spacious with a wonderful yard for the kids to play in. Everything was very clean and the kitchen was well-appointed. There is a beach within easy walking distance and multiple other beaches within a few minutes drive. Kailua is a fun, family-friendly town with lots of dining and shopping options and we enjoyed the walking path along the canal that is right down the street. Altogether a wonderful spot for a relaxing vacation.

Country Kailua Home - Heaven in Hawaii!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful rental! Bob was very responsive and let us know the day we arrived the rental was going to be ready a few hours sooner than expected. First impression was how perfect the location was - we were able to avoid the need of driving through Kailua to get home when we ventured out - which can, at times, get congested. The kitchen was amazing, I have been looking into pouring cement in our new home counters - never seen something so beautiful. The overall house was in excellent condition - no pest issues, furniture was large enough for everyone! Beds cozy and comfortable. Bathrooms were perfect - the master bath had great water pressure (this matters to me). The yard....wowza! My two daughters, 8 & 9 were outside every day looking for lizards and asking what the flowers/ fruit were. We decided a yard was better than a pool since the beach was so close - and this was a good choice! The girls spent a lot of time out in the yard and enjoyed it immensely! No complaints about this place come to mind - we would rent again in a heartbeat! I worried we were too loud because we kept getting up early every day and the owner's son lives aside the property - but they also have a child and were very easy going. We chatted in passing and they were very kind and even helped us when we locked ourselves out - oops! We hope to get another opportunity to visit. This home overall was very well furnished, perfect for families that like to gather for dinner (saved some money there!). Highly recommend to future renters and Bob was very pleasant to work with.
