Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)
My husband and I have had this property for about 25 years. Since my husband's family had lived in Kailua for many years during their high school years and had many fond memories of the island, we wanted to be able to bring our own family back to Kailua and create our own family memories. About 8 years ago, we decided to open our home to other vacationing families who have been able to enjoy many happy days as a family here. We hope that you find our place as comfortable for your family as we do for ours!
Owner purchased this Cottage in 1990
Why Owner chose Kailua
What makes this Cottage unique
Being located a short walk from Kailua Beach means that you can go back and forth to the beach all day without loading and unloading everything into and out of the car. I love being able to pick up my latte at the Kalapawai Market before my beach stroll, and we have a family ritual of shave ice every afternoon from Island Snow (President Obama's favorite before-dinner snack with his kids!)

Location, location, location
We had an absolutely fabulous time and so enjoyed the cottage. It was perfect for us as we had our daily morning stroll to the coffee shop and then to the beach for our daily walk, coffee in hand. The cottage was just perfect for the two of us. And it was also so easy for us to host my daughter and her family, who live locally, for beach time and a couple of dinners. You provided everything we needed. Thanks so much for helping us to have another wonderful vacation in Kailua.
Wonderful location, great accommadation
Our stay at this cottage was pretty close to perfect. The cottage looks just like its pictures but the pictures can't convey how comfortable and well-stocked it is. The bed is comfortable, the shower is great, seating and tables are good. We spent a lot of time on the lanai, ate all our meals there. The kitchen is much better provided than most places I've stayed - plenty of dishes, silverware, even placemats and napkins. There are plenty of pots and utensils for whatever cooking you may want to do. Lisa and Debra were very easy to deal with and everything went smoothly.
The location is as good as you could want. It really is "250 steps to Paradise." I walked an hour on Kailua Beach every morning and went back in the afternoon. We got breakfast at the Kalapawai market most mornings, walked to Island Snow for shave ice several afternoons. Kailua has many restaurants, shops, whatever you might want, and it's an easy drive to the North Shore and the rest of Oahu.
The cottage and the house are very close together and share the back yard, as others have noted. We had good neighbors in the house and no complaints. One night they had guests and several children played loud games in the back yard, but we are used to children and didn't mind. Other than that, we weren't much aware of their presence. It's a beach community with houses in close proximity. We had as much noise (not much) from the people on either side and behind us as we did from the house.
We have stayed in the house before; this was our first time in the cottage. I hope to return often!
The perfect place for the perfect holiday!
Me and a a couple of friends have been in the Cottage in Kailua for 2 amazing weeks.
The place fitted us perfectly since the sofa in the livingroom is a very comfortable bed.
The patio on the big garden was perfect for our breakfast and dinner. Everything was so silent and relaxing. The beach is so close and we walked every morning to see the sunrise.
Lisa and Debra have been so kind and helpful. We collaborate to organize everything for our best stay. The fridge had a problem and Debra took care of everything very quickly.
I recommend this Paradise to everyone.
Mahalo, Lisa and Debra.
Cottage in Paradise
The cottage is charming, well-equipped and ideally situated steps from beautiful Kailua Beach. The garden is pure Hawaiian with plumeria and soaring palm trees. For an authentic island visit you couldn't find better accommodations.
Quaint Cottage in Paradise!
From the outside of this cottage, you don’t realize how much space you actually get inside of this place! It has a full living room, kitchen and breakfast nook, private bed/bath, driveway and even a washer and dryer unit. My husband and I often book this place when we travel just the two of us and we have more than enough room for the two of us to comfortably enjoy our stay without feeling cramped.
A family was staying in the main house while we were there but the home and cottage each have their own living spaces and accommodations so neither parties feel like the other is even there! There is complete privacy around the entire cottage (bamboo fencing, foliage, etc.) and around its own patio so you will not feel like there is anyone else staying in the vicinity...truly the ultimate getaway.
The cottage’s kitchen is fully equipped with all the dishes, utensils and cooking appliances you’ll need and even has its own grill on the private patio. Most hotels on the island for two people were more expensive than our stay here and they still didn’t have the location and short walk to the beach that this cottage had. We will never get tired of staying here!!! Thank you again for having us!
Lovely cottage with all the comforts. Spent most of my time in the lanai.
