House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)
My husband and I have had this property for about 25 years. Since my husband's family lived in Kailua for many years during his high school years, he had many fond memories of the island and 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 families who have been able to enjoy many happy days here. We hope that you find our place as comfortable for your family as we do for ours!
Owner purchased this House in 1990
Why Owner chose Kailua
What makes this House unique
Being located right near 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!)

Perfect stay in Kailua
We stayed here for a week and loved its location. Beautiful yard and very clean house. Had everything we needed. Short walk every morning to Kalapawai market for coffee in the morning and onto the beach to see the sunrise. Amazing beach and just the best place we've ever stayed on Oahu. The owners and property manager were wonderful, thank you so much!
This is a great place! We loved our stay!
Nice, private, beautiful place.
Property very clean. Debra great to work with. House very spacious. Well stocked kitchen and towe
Negative was the weather. Half of month was cold, rainy, windy . Very negative is road noise , very loud traffic. Beach is close and beautiful. Fun to watch kite surfers.
Mahalo for taking the time to write a review. I especially appreciate your comments about Debra, the property manager, as she works hard to make sure guests are well taken care of. As for the negative review on the weather, not much I can do about that! As for the road noise, not much I can do about that either except to say that we have a lava rock wall in front that helps to cut down on the noise and that everyone needs to evaluate for themselves as to how sensitive they are to road sounds. I'm here in the house myself now for a few weeks and it truly doesn't bother me.
Great place steps from Kailua beach
Comfortable for a family, close to Kailua beach and Kalapawai Market for an early morning cappuccino before a walk on the beach.
Cute, comfortable, and convenient—great for families!
This property has many wonderful amenities, chief among them its proximity to Kailua beach—you’ll never have to drive to get to an amazing beach! The grill and dining table under the lania are perfect, and the kitchen and indoor dining table are very well-appointed, stocked with all the appliances you could need. The laundry room closes off so that you don’t have to hear the washer or dryer, and the bedrooms are very comfortable. Having two full bathrooms is also a great advantage!
Perfect family getaway
Our group of 6 (my husband and me, 2 children ages 2yr and 5yr, my mother and sister) loved our stay here. The location is amazing - literally around the corner from the beach as well as the market. It is also within reasonable walking distance to Lanikai, and to the shops and restaurants in town. The size of the house was perfect for our group. The house had everything we needed, including a booster seat, beach towels, beach toys, chairs/mats, as well as kitchen supplies/food/dishes etc. We saw a couple of geckos, which we loved, and had no bug/insect problems at all. On our first day, Debra brought over an amazing basket of Hawaiian goodies! We would love to stay again when we have the chance.
Some notes for other travelers - if you have a crawling/toddling infant or young toddler who may "get into things", I would recommend bringing outlet covers and be aware it is definitely child-friendly but not baby-proof (nor should it be). For example, there is a fireplace full of lovely river rock that is very tempting for toddlers to play with ;) ... Our very adventurous 2yr old was fine, but when he was 12-18 months old he would have definitely broken and/or eaten something he shouldn't. The driveways face onto the main road, so it is a little bit of an adventure backing out/in the first couple times, especially if you have a big car. There is some road noise in the master & front bedroom so if you are a light sleeper, ear plugs are great.
