The Seabreeze is an illegal vacation rental. Kailua neighbors are working to get it out.

Vegetarian: there is a good vegetarian store in Kailua, Down to Earth, that has very casual food. It's a cross between 70's classic vegetarian food & Asian-influenced food. The Down to Earth in Honolulu is bigger & has a good salad bar & bigger selection. That's the only pure veggie place besides the Hare Krishna temple, which is just over the hill from Kailua - you don't have to go all the way into Honolulu. It's in Nuuanu and has very good buffets on beautiful grounds.

Baci Bistro in Kailua is charming & always has a good vegetarian choice. There's also an Indian place that's good (forgot the name, sorry).

Singha Thai, right in Kailua across from Maui Tacos/Jamba shopping center, has good vegetarian but be sure to ask for your dishes without fish sauce. Same with Ba Le Sandwich Shop next to Daei - good tofu sandwiches, ask no fish sauce.

Maui Tacos has a good vegetarian selection & they understand that vegetarian means no chicken stock in the rice or lard in the beans.

Agnes' Portugese Bake Shop is not vegetarian but makes McDougall bread w/no eggs, oil, or milk that's incredibly good.

If you want a treat, go into the edge of Waikiki to Padovani's, either the dining room or the upstairs wine bar, and ask for their vegetarian menu. They're the only fine dining place on Oahu that has an entire separate vegetarian menu rather than just one special. You can get a degustation menu or just pick & choose.

Hoku's is the other veggie-friendly fine dining place, also in town but outside Waikiki, at the Kahala Mandarin Oriental. They'll have one veggie special but if it's not the vegetarian platter you might want to ask if they'll make that for you. If you do, don't order an appetizer - it's a lot of food.

There is also a lot of fast food sushi on Oahu and they always have a few veggie selections, usually basics. The Kozo Sushi in Kaneohe near Kailua has brown rice sushi, if you're in the area.

Oahu is not very veggie-oriented but I can always find something good. Just know that they'll often grill the vegetables on the same spot as the pork cheeks and use chicken stock in the risotto, but will be very accomodating if you ask.

Sorry, I wrote Singha Thai, which is Waikiki & also very good. I can't remember the name of the Kailua restaurant at the moment but you can't miss it.
