Paradise in Paradise 5 of 5 We loved everything about this wonderful, light flooded house: the magnificent view, the beautiful pool, the lush green garden, plenty of bedrooms, being woken up by the sun in the master bedroom, great kitchen with everything needed for being your own chef and the generous living room with a huge full HD TV. Wifi is perfect all around the house. The location is at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac with only a 5min drive to Kailua Beach Park.The property manager was extremely responsive and supportive in every possible way. We enjoyed every moment of our marvelous stay and are looking forward to coming back some time in the future. Review Submitted: Nov 23, 2015 Date of Stay: Jul 2015 Source: HomeAway Jennifer J. Secluded Hawaii Oasis - would definitely stay again 5 of 5 Lovely property, more secluded than the usual Kailua property due to being against the hillside on a dead end street. About 15-20 minute walk to the beach 4 bedrooms, 3 with queen beds, one with a twin futon Bedrooms have A/C Main house has large kitchen with gas cooktop and electric ovens No A/C in main house but breezes are good Shared laundry with permanent tenants downstairs Pool is large and solar heated. Shallow end is about 3 1/2 feet deep so not for tiny kids. Hot tub on side deck is nice. Lots of TVs throughout house/ cable. Wifi throughout house as well; worked great. Property manager is very helpful and responsive!!! Overall property is above average for Kailua (I lived here so I know!) Short 5 minute walk to Safeway/groceries, restaurants Would definitely stay here again and recommend this home! Review Submitted: Jun 17, 2015 Date of Stay: Apr 2015 Source: HomeAway Barbara N. Attractive, spacious, private paradise 5 of 5 We had an awesome stay in your home earlier this winter! Sitting on the lanai every morning at sunrise drinking tea was a beautiful and serene way to begin each day. The ocean view allowed us to see the Mokes. The property itself was very clean, well-maintained and comfortable. The recently re-modeled kitchen was well-stocked with every implement needed to prepare a gourmet meal. We could easily walk to a nearby supermarket so we could prepare our own tasty and delicious meals at home. There were, however, many good restaurants in Kailua and in nearby Kaneohe for anyone who likes to dine out while away from home. This was our fifth visit to Kailua so we have discovered many of these on previous visits. Forget the high-rise hotels and crowded beaches in Waikiki. Kailua, a mere 20 minute ride from the airport in Honolulu, offers gorgeous white sand beaches that stretch for miles, which are relatively uncrowded. We also found great beaches at Lanikai and Waimanalo just minutes away. Because Kailua has been "discovered" with the Obama family vacationing here for the past several years, it's probably best to hit the beaches during the week, rather than weekends. But this discovery has also added many new shops and boutiques to the downtown area, which we also enjoyed. Though we loved our time on the beach, we also loved a pool workout in the front yard most days. It was especially nice since we didn't smell like stinky chlorine afterwards. Another way we spent our time was hiking in the nearby rain forests, which Dean and Jaynine will gladly tell you all about. A visit to Oahu would not be meaningful without visiting the Pearl Harbor Memorial. It was an easy drive from Kailua to this national memorial and I guarantee you will be moved. We also loved the Bishop Museum in Honolulu for providing an insight into Hawaiian culture and history. This home has a distinct "island" feel and will make you feel like you have truly had a vacation in paradise! I definitely plan to return to this property and highly recommend it. Review Submitted: Apr 2, 2015 Date of Stay: Jan 2015 Source: HomeAway Allison S. Relax surrounded by the spirit of Aloha! 5 of 5 From the moment you walk through the beautifuly hand carved wooden gate you sense you are entering a magical place. The spirit of aloha is reflected in every detail. From the tropical Birds of Paradise that surround the salt water, heated, lap pool, to the custom cabinet work in the newly renovated kitchen, you feel immersed in the island life style. The neighborhood is perfectly quiet, other than the song birds cooing, and you are surrounded by nature at every turn. Breath taking views of the ocean off the back lanai never let you forget that you are lucky enough to be on a Hawaiian Island, even if it is just for a little while. Every detail has been though through with care, allowing you to just kick back, relax and enjoy all the area has to offer. A six minute walk to one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. A five minute walk to shops and is all right there, waiting to be enjoyed. I felt like I was staying at a 5 star hotel and spa all wrapped up in one package and I didn't have to share with any other guests! I loved the pool and the hot tub. Looking up at the stars at night and forgetting everything else, just for a while. This is what a vacation should be! Thanks so much Jaynine and Dean for sharing your lovely home and your spirit of aloha with our family! We will be back!!!! Review Submitted: Mar 16, 2015 Date of Stay: Jul 2014 Source: HomeAway Did you find this review helpful? 1 Yes 0 No Chris S. An oasis in Paradise! 5 of 5 The surroundings were just plain magical. Secluded, yet convenient to everything. High on a hill, last house on the street, totally private with a backdrop of lush tropical mountains and an overview of the ocean and the twin islands called the "Mokes" which are seabird sanctuaries. We found not only the setting to be tranquil, but the home and property lent itself as an adult "playground". Perfect for outdoor activities, chillin' and dining. After taking a swim in the luxurious pool surrounded by carefully tended tropical flora and fauna, we'd relax in the hot tub taking in all the marvelous scents of nature. The home itself is comfortable and equipped with every modern convenience - the kitchen is a gourmand's delight. This oasis is close to shopping, restaurants, hiking, the beach, sightseeing, and more ... We enjoyed our stay thoroughly and left for the mainland very relaxed and renewed.
