Had a wonderful five days in Oahu staying at this gorgeous home just a few blocks from the beach. After a five days in a resort we wanted a more home like setting and privacy for our family of four. This location in East Oahu was magnificent and easy to get around to all the main island sites (North Shore, Winward hikes, Waikiki, stunning Lanikai beach, Hanauma Bay, etc.). The property is well maintained and the layout was perfect. We enjoyed the open main area and the breeze coming through the home. Private courtyard, backyard, and pool felt like we were alone in paradise.
Couple things you should know when you visit this home. Beach is about a 6 minute walk to a private beach. It is an easy walk and enjoyable walk, but you cannot park at the beach which was fine for us. You do have an option to park at main beach areas if that is needed. Main area is "breeze cooled" not A/C, but there are A/C units in each room for comfortable sleeping. Pool doesn't have a Jacuzzi and the pool steps are unusual (steep drop), however, my teenagers were just fine!
Mike T. was great and answered any questions I had within minutes of a text or call. We are thinking of making this an annual or every two year vacation spot because we enjoyed it so much!
Perfect place to stay, just a short walk to a great beach. We stayed there with 8 people and had plenty of room for all of us. Gracious and attentive hosts.
First let me start by saying the hospitality from Mike and Kelly were above and beyond what I expected. The process was super simple from check in to check out. All texts and emails were answered within minutes. The house itself sits in quiet neighborhood with friendly neighbors. The pool and lanai area was perfect for sunrise breakfasts and late night talk story with family and friends. My nephew loved running around and playing with the toys that were in the chest. The full kitchen gave us the ability to cook full meals and to keep tons of water and juices icy cold. The living room and dining room had fans that cooled down the house fast and each bedroom had it's one adjustable air conditioner unit which made sleeping and preparing for the day comfortable and easy. All beds were made with high thread count sheets that made every nights sleep feel like you are at home. This house has an amazing washer and dryer which came to be super convenient for washing clothing while we spent our days at the beach and sweating at the Aloha Swap Meet. Not far from shopping, beaches and some amazing restaurants, Kono's, Cinnamons, and Nico's Pier 38 to name a few. Short 25 minute drive to Waikiki but far enough to experience the quietness that Kailua brings. Find yourself a Costco so you can get drinks and food.. but hit up Foodland for the freshest Poke ever. This home was an amazing place for our family and we plan on staying here again when we come back. Thank you Mike and Kelly for such an amazing stay. We left some Pumpkin cookies from Trader's Joe for you.. hope you got them. Take care and Mahalo.
We loved our stay here! The home was clean and well laid out offering space for our group of 7 adults. Kitchen was clean and well appointed. The beach was just an easy walk away. Beautiful sandy beach and warm crystal clear water. Grocery store a few minutes drive. The location was perfect with easy drives from/to the airport. We visited the north shore for one day and swam at the pipeline. The second fuller day included trips to pearl harbour, diamond head and the south shore. The last day, the waves were perfect for body/boogie board surfing. Unfortunately we were only here for a short layover ... we will definitely be back again
