Our beach estate is located on over an acre of land, just steps to the best white sand beach in Hawaii. This is the only beach in Hawaii to consistently show up as one of the top ten beaches in the world lists. Unlike most beaches in Hawaii our beach is mostly free of tourists so you can actually have space and relax. On weekdays you will virtually have the entire beach to yourself!

Our 2200 sq foot home neighbors some of the finest properties on Oahu, just doors down from where the Obama family stays when they come to Hawaii. One of the very few properties that is actually a LEGAL vacation rental and has been since the early 90's, so you can be assured that your rental will be available when you arrive!

Our property offers the utmost relaxation and tranquility. Feel the white sand between your toes, bask in the warm Hawaiian sun, dive into the crystal clear aqua waters, and be glad you've made the best choice for your Hawaiian vacation! Located steps from Kailua Beach, the best Beach in Hawaii! Our two story house offers Ocean and Mountain Views, one house back from Kailua beach, 30 second walk down a sandy beach path. We are also just about a 5 mine drive to the famous Lanikai Beach. Escape to Kailua, a small beach town located just 20 minutes from Honolulu and Waikiki, truly away from it all!

Our home features high speed wireless internet, two flat screen tvs, Hawaiian koa wood cabinets, marble, and crown molding, modeled after the historic residence next door. There is now an A/C unit in the master bedroom and screens on all bedroom windows and fans throughout the house.

There are two large lanais one upstairs (with ocean and mountain views) and one downstairs. The house is situated on an acre of land with lush landscaping, allowing ample room to lay out in the Hawaiian sun or let the kids play. The yard has beautiful plumeria trees, red hibiscus bushes, orchids, and of course, a coconut grove.

The house has one King bed, two queen beds and two twin beds. We also provide a pack n play if needed. It has two full bathrooms, one with a tub/shower combo the other with a walk in shower. The master bedroom (king bed and a twin) and one full bathroom are located upstairs where the kitchen, dining room and living room are. The other two bedrooms and second bathroom are located on the first floor. The second bedroom has a queen bed and the third bedroom has a queen and a twin.

The kitchen is stocked with everything you need to cook. It has a full sized oven, four burner cooktop, refrigerator/freezer, microwave, dishwasher, toaster and coffee maker. The kitchen has four barstools, perfect for hanging out while meals are prepared or for casual breakfasts. The dining room table seats six and there is also an outdoor patio set complete with tables and chairs with an ocean view.

A full sized washer and dryer are located inside the house for your convenience as well.

We have one security camera located outside to the left of the front door that monitors the driveway to ensure guest and property safety.

The house is spacious, clean and right next to the beach. The beach is secluded and quiet. The amenities are all you need for a family vacation. I'll recommend this place all day!

My family and I really enjoyed our stay here. The property location was perfect! It is just steps from the beach. It is also very close to Kailua Town with lots of spots to eat and shop. We would definitely recommend it and would stay here again!

We stayed a week, was on the road everyday but one seeing the sites of the Island. Great beach time, very close to the ocean. What a lovely location. We will be back again.

This house is beautiful and well maintained. It matched the description well, both as to the house and the location. The house is well supplied with everything needed for fun at the beach or for making dinner. The beds are comfortable, the tables and chairs are too. We loved being there and would be happy to come again. The host, Crystal, was quickly and completely responsive to the very minor issues we brought to her.

The house is one house off the beach in a residential neighborhood. It was great to be able to walk to the beach every morning and afternoon. We were unaware that the refrigerator was not working so we bought groceries. There was a small college type refrigerator near the regular refrigerator. The next morning we realized that the regular refrigerator was not cold. Our host had sent us a message while we were flying but we didn’t see it, nor did she text me that information. She stated that someone who be in to fix it in a few days. Okay. The contractor came but did not fix it. It was inconvenient to try and keep all of our food in a college like refrigerator. We were told that the refrigerator had been having issues for weeks and the repairman had been out more than once. I have a friend on the island and asked if this was normal. I was told that it was Not normal and they could have easily replaced the refrigerator. When I asked to been credited for the food that we wasted and the fact that we had to eat out much more than planned for, I was told NO. I did like the house, but I am unhappy with the way I was treated regarding the refrigerator issue. The house was fine.

Enjoyed this property located a minute walk across to the ocean. Nice quaint little relaxed town. The house could use a deep cleaning, the kitchen counter needs replaced as it's stained (Soaftsoap could fix that) but there's a horrible burn spot under the toaster, and the upper deck needs to be strengthened. It's very unsteady and weak. All in all it's a nice place to stay while on vacation. If you can get past the minor imperfections it's well worth the visit.

We could not have had a better stay! We had a toddler with us, and having the flexibility to walk back and forth to the beach whenever we wanted was incredible. The house was exactly what we were looking for - clean, comfortable, so convenient to the beach and to Kailua and beyond. It was well-stocked with everything we needed...plenty of beach towels, beach toys, well-stocked kitchen. And the views!!! We loved sitting around the table on the deck watching the sunrise or the stars. Perfect place to just hang out together. Hopefully we will make it back someday... Mahalo Crystal and family for everything!

Our family is originally from Hawaii and visit as much as possible after moving to the mainland many years ago. Kailua Beach is our favorite beach and this home puts you a few short steps from the incredible beach. The most crowded time on the beach is 5:45am when many are walking the sands as the sun rises. Otherwise, you might have to share a quarter mile strip of sand with about 10 people. Kailua beach runs about 2.5 miles end to end. The popular beach park areas sits 1.5 miles from the sands backing up to this property. We had all ages this trip (10 month old, 10 year old, teenager, and a few adults). Accommodations were great and as described. It's not new or flashy, but classic and beachy. Don't get hung up on the age of the furniture or cabinetry, sit on the deck and enjoy the ocean breeze. The convenience of ocean access is so nice. A/C in all the rooms would be a nice upgrade, but there's enough airflow to keep things comfortable. Our Ohana loved the location and the house worked beautifully for relaxing and multiple trips each day to the beach. Highly recommend and we would love to come back!

The location of the house is very close to the beautiful beach. The small town of Kailua offers all convenience and charm of living in a quiet, friendly seaside town. The hostess, Crystal, is very considerate and responsive. The property manager is also super helpful and friendly. Some minor issues with the appliances were addressed in a timely manner. We really enjoyed our stay in this beautiful, well-appointed property. Helen

The house is old, but the age only adds charm to it. The only inconvenience we experienced was low water pressure in the shower downstairs. Proximity and easy access to the beach is definitely a plus. We enjoyed our vacation in this house.

We had a host cancel our reservation from another rental site 3 days before we were leaving for our trip, with no reason given. Needless to say, it created some panic. As it turned out, it was probably a blessing as this place had a last minute cancellation as well. This place was convenient to get to anywhere on the island, yet away from all the congestion around Honolulu/Waikiki. Being 200 ft from the beach was tremendous when having to pack up 7 people for the beach. Outdoor hot shower for washing sand off was great. Air conditioning is only a window unit in master bedroom as the description says, thus the rooms in the basement were extremely warm at all times. A number of fans were available and helped, but was still hot. For our first trip to Hawaii, it was nice having our own place and not having to get lost in the hustle and bustle of a hotel/resort. Overall, we were pleased with the amenities and location to everything.

The house was perfect for a friend/family gathering. We had plenty of room in the house and the yard was huge. The beach out back was quiet and the ocean was perfect amount of waves for all ages. We will be back

This Kailua house is beautiful and cared for in a loving and meticulous manner. The yard is beautiful with both ocean and mountain views; the house has antique hardwood features, comfortable beds, and is steps away from a beautiful beacch. Our family enjoyed our stay - there was plenty of room, toys for the kids and a warm outdoor shower. Beautiful all around.

This home is ideally located for those who want a great beach vacation. Just steps away from the beach - the best beach on Oahu I might add, with a relatively short walk to town if you are so inclined. Our family loved this home and we would definitely return.

Excellent location - easy access to beach; room outlay is very practical and homey. Caveats: - no investments in interior for a long time - plumbing is not up to scratch - loose taps, water spillage, first floor bathroom - shower does not work - very limited outside (porch and garden) furniture - table on porch at the limit (rusty) However: truly a paradise lime spot Thanks

We enjoyed our stay. I personally enjoyed sitting on the deck taking evening pics with the moon in the palms and the moonlit water. I enjoyed walking to the white sand beach from the property and riding the waves. The house layout was great for us and the warm water outside shower was very nice. We are grateful for our time together.

The house & property were wonderful. It was a bit difficult to initially find the house, as you can’t see it from the street. Recommend that after reservation confirmation that directions say that the house is behind the house at 33 Pilipu Place. I was sad to see a house being built just past this house that will almost obstruct the ocean view that was so beautiful. Truly a shame. The price was appropriate for the location and condition of the house. The deck may need to be renovated shortly.

This home is set up well for a family. 2 bedrooms and large bathroom on the first floor and master upstairs. So close to the beach, it was an easy walk. Everyone I dealt with was so helpful. Wonderful experience for our family of 6 adults and 1 two year old.

This is a beautiful old home and perfectly laid out for our purposes as a family reconnecting to bring a loved one home. It's a very short walk down a sandy right-of-way to one of the most beautiful beaches on the islands at Kailua beach.

September 2022
This was our second time to stay in Kailua . This home ‘s location and ease of access to the beach was as promised . Travelled with Mom , husband and two Friends and the home was great. The kitchen was fully equipped and the long walk into town was just the right amount . Looking forward to coming back :)

Property was a historic residence so that is what you get; a little dated but charming feel to it. The only thing I would say about the property is that I had the impression it was on the beach based on the photo, which it isn't. A little deceiving but I don't think you will be disappointed. Just a short walk to the beach. They are currently building a residence so in time, the ocean view will be more obstsructed. House does not have air; only a window unit in the bedroom on the main living area. But that might be most houses in Hawaii, it was just a little uncomfortable sleeping if you are used to air.

The location, just yards from Kailua Beach and close to attractions in town, is excellent! The house itself is comfortable and has aged very gracefully.

Beautiful location just behind one other house to the beach. The house between this and the beach is currently under construction, but it wasn't too loud while we were there. The host is very quick to respond and easy to communicate with. The person who cleans the house is very nice as well, we ran into her when we were checking out. We had a great time.

Good experience staying at this property. Everything meet our expectations. You can find everything you need in kitchen, good decorating, feels like stay at home. 房子在Maui中部,离机场近,周围有ABC store ,面包房,咖啡店,对于短暂停留挺方便。房价稍高。

We were in town for a memorial and two weddings. Busy family! This old, but updated, estate home gives you the feel of staying in Hawaii back in the plantation days. Tall ceilings, beautiful woodwork and a great view of the water. Sadly, this view will soon be gone as a home is being built between this house and the beach. Still, there is beach access! If you are familiar with Kailua, some “new” residential and commercial development has occurred over the years, but Kailua as a whole hasn’t really changed in over 30+ years. The house itself comfortably accommodated 3 couples with lots of space and wonderful lanais both upstairs and downstairs. We had a great stay!

Yards away from the ocean and sand beach. Beautiful and limited use, particularly midweek. House was a charming older home with lovely landscaping, outdoor dining, and full kitchen.

We had a wonderful time with our group of 4 kids, 3 adults. My parents were also supposed to come, but they didn't make it. It would have been a tight fit with more people. The property is really beautiful and has everything you need for a beach vacation. The beds are also comfy and the kitchen has lots of dishes. The location really is steps from the beach and we also enjoyed the deck and yard.

First off, you can't beat this location. This beach is among the most beautiful in Hawaii, if not the U.S. and its location away from the concrete towers looming over Waikiki is a huge plus -- you can enjoy the restaurants and attractions of Honolulu and still have a quiet family beach without the rush of tourists. The home is set on a beautiful property, with well maintained gardens and an easy quick path to the beach. If you're a family that has to carry tons of beach toys and chairs for your day at the beach, you'll love the proximity the beach. It's a super easy walk. The home dates back to the 1920s and the original architectural details are largely intact. The home is showing its age though -- the deck needs replacing and the furniture 's upholstery could use an update, a ceiling fan needed repair, but those were not dealbreakers for our group. However, if you're looking for a luxury home with everything brand new, this is not for you. But for our group -- friends who grew up in Honolulu and some first time visitors to O'ahu -- it was absolutely perfect and a great value for the money paid. I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again. One important note: during our stay, there was a vacant lot between the home and the oceanfront, giving us a splendid and unexpected view of the ocean. However, while we were there, construction began on the lot. Before booking, I would check with the owners on the status of construction -- I don't think I would want to stay there with a house under construction -- that noise would be a deal breaker.

I reserved this house for my family that was coming to visit Hawaii. I’ve lived on Oahu in Kaneohe (about 5 mins from Kailua) for the past 5 years. I’ve even spent about a year living in Kailua. The overall vacation rental experience was good, but there were just some odd things that gave the experience a strange feeling. First, I’d like to lend a bit of context that isn’t really given anywhere in the rental advertisement. The advertised house is a part of a 3 building property very close to the beach. It IS NOT it’s own stand alone property, but 1 of 3 building associated with the property. The entire property is not directly on the beach. It is 1 building away from the beach on it’s block. This isn’t a big deal, and is extremely common in Kailua. You can walk to the beach from this house in less than a minute. Like most houses in Hawaii, there is no central air conditioning. This is not a big deal, as most houses in Hawaii do not have central air conditioning, and instead rely on window units and split level AC. A few of the complaints against this house in other reviews cite that the house is not well ventilated due to this. If you open all the windows, however, there is enough of a breeze from the ocean to make things feel comfortable. This is generally how it is in Hawaii, and I even leave all my windows and doors opened at my house. There were, however, windows without screens in them. When questioned about additional screen, the owners said there having windows or doors without screens in them is, “a Hawaii thing.” As stated previously, I’ve lived here for about 5 years in 4 different houses, and every single one of them had screens in every single window. Not having screens is not, “a Hawaii thing.” This is multi-million dollar property that is expensive to rent. Go to hardware Hawaii, buy some screens, and stop telling people silly things. Finally, the house is advertised as a “Historical” property. While we were there we talked to the neighbors and the specific building you’re staying in was build in the 1980’s according to them. While some buildings on the property may be historical, and the entire property itself may be historical, the building you’re staying in, is not. That being said, the house is beautifully built and period correct. The house is interesting, wonderfully decorated, and beautifully built. It doesn’t matter if it is historical or not, I would still recommend it. The house COMFORTABLY sleeps 3 couples (6 peo

We loved our stay at this comfortable home on a private rd. with a large upstairs veranda looking out to the beach. Great for taking a blanket at night to see the many stars. We especially appreciated how quiet the location is. Kitchen is well appointed. We also loved the koa wood cabinets and the touches echoing lovely turn of the century Hawaiian touches. Just a perfect place to relax, read, do artwork and Crystal Knish is a perfect host, responding quickly to any questions we had. And in addition was kind enough to suggest local places to eat - We tried 3 and they were terrific. We have many warm memories of our perfect stay at this home in the Kalama tract, Kailua-Oahu.

Can’t beat walking distance to the beach. But I hope they update the furniture (especially the sofa bed & air mattress as it wasn’t fit to be slept in) and downstairs bathroom.

We had such a great week on Oahu! The location in Kailua offered us a quiet retreat away from the hustle and bustle of Honolulu. The proximity and easy access to Kailua Beach gave us a nice place to come relax after a busy day on the North Shore or a long day hiking. The house was beautiful and had all of the amenities you could ask for.
