This house was super close to Kailua beach, (like a 3 minute walk to sand, another 2 to water), and also an easy walk to Lanikai beach (an easy mile, which trail/sidewalk the whole way). It was also close to town, two farmers' markets, and lots of restaurants. The house came with boogie boards and other beachy equipment, plenty of towels - both for at beach and at home - and an outdoor shower to rinse off sand before going in the house. The kitchen was fully stocked with pots and pans as well as all the condiments we could ask for (oil, butter, seasonings, soy sauce, etc.), saving on us having to buy all the things just for a week of food. The owners, who live next door, were very kind and responded quickly to our questions.
There were five of us - three kids (6, 8, and 10) and two adults. The house was a great size for the five of us, and there was always enough hot water for our post-beach showers.
I can't think of any complaints, and we will definitely try to stay here again if/when we're ever back in the area.
My family of four had a very relaxing and comfortable stay at Vic and Karla's place in Kailua. It was much larger than we expected with a spacious living room and bedroom. In the bedroom, there is plenty of space for a travel crib in the room (if you're wondering if this is possible). Having the the extra bathroom was so nice. The place was nicely updated and clean. The wrap-around deck is large, and we spent a lot of time outside eating meals and just enjoying the amazing weather. The kitchen had lots of nice amenities that some places don't often have (such as sandwich bags, plastic wrap, fresh coffee and good knives!). The location was very quiet, and Karla was helpful to let us know that we didn't have to worry about our noisy little kids waking anyone up early. Because the unit is above their garage, they can't hear a thing in their house. The unit felt very private with it's own side entrance and windows facing out to a park-like setting (golf course). The location is just 5-10 mins to anything in Kailua, shops, restaurants, beach, etc. We hope to come back again!
