Large 1BR-1/2 mile from the beach-Full Kitchen-Quiet A/C in every room-Sleeps 4
Aloha, I'm a husband, father, jack of all trades, coach of all sports and owner/manager of 5 vacation rentals in Hawaii. I was raised in Hawaii from the age of 8 years old after my family moved here from the USA mainland. Hawaii has so much to offer and I hope you get the chance to visit and explore this incredible island.
Greg purchased this House in 1998
Why Greg chose Kailua
My wife and I grew up in Kailua so we know it well. It's so close to the beach, restaurants and grocery stores. The small town feeling and tight community remind us of our younger growing up days. It was so great that we were able to own a home in the beautiful town that we grew up in.
What makes this House unique
The beach is beautiful with it's white sand, friendly people and mostly calm waters. Never really rough, even in the winter when the North Shore surf spots are reaching 25 feet - Kailua bay will stay nice and mellow. A perfect beach for swimming and boogie boarding. There is a small covered patio on the corner, next to the coconut trees, for meals or just for enjoying that morning coffee while watching joggers and dog walker going by.

Lovely one bedroom apartment with all the amenities needed!
This is a great place to stay for one person, two people or a family with small children. The kitchen is fabulous! Lots of counter space, a microwave, dishwasher, stove and oven, refrigerator and freezer with an ice maker. The living room dining area is very comfortable and has an air conditioning unit as well as cross ventilation and a ceiling fan. The bedroom also has an air conditioning unit and a ceiling fan as well. Both the living room and bedroom have TV's connected to Spectrum cable. The bathroom has a tub and shower and the sink is in a separate area! There is a high speed wi-fi, a BBQ grill, & everything you need for the beach. You can use the washer and dryer which is in the garage! There's a small porch with a table and chairs as well. The owners are delightful and helpful and live in the attached home! I highly recommend this to anyone wanting a great place in Kailua!
We enjoyed staying here. The unit is very comfortable with some lovely touches - great kitchen and bedroom, comfortable recliners in the living room, well stocked, nice neighbourhood, easy parking. And it actually has a bathtub as well as shower - not all that common. Greg and Cindy were easy to communicate with. Kailua is a good base for lots on the island, and has a super beach. We recommend.
Quiet neighborhood stay at Coconut Corner
Enjoyed all the amenities of this quiet corner unit with its lovely new kitchen and beautiful plank flooring. Fairly close to the beaches and shops and restaurants in town and well equipped with cooler, beach chairs etc. Living room furniture could use some updating though as we found the couches a bit uncomfortable. Air conditioning was greatly appreciated as we were there during some stormy, humid weather.
While Greg was a gracious and accommodating host the unit needs a redo. The furniture was kind of shabby and the place needs to be upscaled. The mattress was too soft for us but that’s a personal preference. The bedroom light had no wall switch but was worked from a string hanging over the middle of the bed which was difficult to do when in bed. Overall, it was just adequate.
Ouch - that shabby comment stings. I really don't want to sound defensive - I realize people have vastly different tastes in decor. But I just want to point out that quite a significant amount has been invested in this rental recently to completely re-do the kitchen, the flooring is new, the split air conditioning is new and after putting in AC, we needed to upgrade all the windows to hold that nice cold air in. And then after new windows - we had to have the house painted, of course. I'm not sure what kind of upscale amenities you might have missed or been looking for, but I do realize a vacation rental is a different experience from staying at a luxury hotel.
Nice quiet neighborhood
This is a nice rental. It was clean. The kitchen was well equipped. The bed was comfortable.
Nice quiet neighborhood on the west end of Kailua.
Nice attached unit with room for family to visit.
A little farther from the beach than we thought, but will probably stay there again.
