Wonderful, quiet neighbourhood a short drive or cycle into Kailua town centre. Large well-equipped lanai with lots of seating, stacks of beach toys to use and a gas barbecue for cooking meals and making our daily morning coffee.
We were a family of four with two kids - 10 and 13. Accommodation was comfortable enough and we spent our days outside on the lanai or out at beaches and attractions.
We used the property's kayaks and SUP to paddle to Kailua beach - a great experience.
Any requests and issues were responded to on-the-spot making our stay relaxing and trouble-free. A big Mahalo!
Our family of two adults and 10-year-old visited in mid-November and loved it! Truly a gem, if you want to escape the tourists and live like a local. Unit is as pictured and described, clean, nicely decorated and host provided tons of little extras to make it a lovely and welcoming temporary home for us. We especially enjoyed: safe, quiet neighborhood; waterside bench swing; beautiful garden; private pool; kayaks, beach gear, even sun hats available for our use. She provided everything we needed, and MORE!
The location was absolutely perfect! We were minutes away from Lanikai beach, hiking spots, food, and shopping. We were able to escape the people and the hustle and bustle by retreating to our tropical hideaway, located in a quiet neighborhood. Our hosts were very accommodating to our needs. A very spacious lanai area with a private pool were available whenever we wanted. A grill, tableware, snorkeling gear, towels, beach toys, and many other amenities were readily available for our use. We had a wonderful time and would recommend staying here!
I had a lovely week staying in Jacqui's tropical paradise studio with my husband, and two teen-aged sons. Jacqui went out of her way to make our stay welcoming and comfortable. My boys loved playing in the pool while we enjoyed meals in the spacious lanai. If we needed anything, from laundry services to basic supplies, we'd send Jacqui a quick text, and she's take care of us right away. It was fantastic being able to use the kayaks and water gear. We'd paddle to the beach, (15-20 minutes), which kept us from having to find parking. Jacqui supplied towels, toiletries, dishes and silverware, as well as snorkeling gear, boogie boards, sun hats, coolers, beach toys, beach chairs and mats. There's not a table or cooking facilities inside, but just outside the door on the lanai is a table that seats six, a sitting area, an outdoor sink, and a bbq. Inside is a coffee pot, microwave, and small fridge with freezer. We stayed comfortable with the ceiling fan, floor fan, and the sea breeze. We were sad to leave our tropical paradise home! Thank you to Jacqui for taking such good care of us!!
