Kitty was delightful! She was welcoming, pleasant, friendly and happy to provide recommendations for restaurants, beaches, good snorkeling locations, sightseeing, etc.

The vacation rental was nicely decorated. The beds were comfortable. The rooms are well-insulated so there is privacy for both sleeping areas. There were tons of little unexpected extras (beach towels, beach chairs, soap, shampoo, conditioner, macadamia nut chocolates...) that made our stay even more pleasant. The washer and dryer helped ensure that we didn't have to travel with damp or dirty clothes, which was just what we needed (since our time on Oahu was the first week of a two-week international trip.) Everything was clean. The property feels like it is a faraway paradise from all the hustle and bustle of Honolulu, but it is less than an hour's drive, even with traffic. Kailua and Kaneohe are close with plenty of restaurants, beaches, and botanical gardens. The property is so beautiful, it almost makes it hard to want to go out sightseeing!

Tips:
If you are a light sleeper, I recommend turning on the air conditioner to provide "white noise" to mask the roosters crowing until late at night and starting up again early in the morning.
Hunter (Kitty's dog) has a sneaky habit of "borrowing" a shoe and depositing it somewhere else on the property, so place your shoes just inside the door (not on the carpet) if you'd like both of them available to wear later. (Hunter apparently doesn't chew them, just relocates them elsewhere.)
When Kitty warns you not to stand or sit near the edge of the property, she's not kidding - the coconuts can, and do, fall!
