Hale Kai - Kailua Rental Highly Recommend

Just returned from a 15-day adventure to Oahu and the Big Island. Wanted to thank all at TA for the useful information that made my stay in Kailua most enjoyable.

A special thanks to Tom and Lucinda Coffey hosts of their Hale Kai rental in Kailua. What a wonderfully, peaceful, quiet, residential location. hawaiioceanfrontrentals.net/kaikailua.html

A home-away-from-home feel. Our mountain view rental was perfect, open-airy living quarters nicely appointed leather furniture with matching wicker accent pieces, large vaulted ceiling, loft with lighting and skylights, 2 lanai’s (one overlooking the pool and the other with an ocean view – were I enjoyed the morning sunrises with my cup of tea), king size bed, marbled bathroom - open shower with glass blocking, walk in dressing closet, kitchen (full size refrigerator, microwave, hotplate, coffee maker, etc. – didn’t do any cooking as we ate out or brought in) and everything you would need to spend a day at the beach (mats, chairs, umbrella, boogie board, surf shoes, sun hat, etc.) Their website also notes all the amenities. Use of laundry facilities and secure private parking (no additional charge, unlike that in Honolulu if you were staying in a hotel) were a plus. I especially enjoyed their saltwater pool and chatting with Lucinda, she was a wealth of information regarding restaurants and activities on the island.

I would definitely return and would highly recommend this rental property to family, friends, and all. Thanks Tom and Lucinda!

LorraineW,

Sorry! That was a little insider info that had nothing to do with your post.

I'm glad you enjoyed Kailua.

How was the Big Island.

I hope you got a chance to go see Mauna Kea at sunset and do some stargazing afterward. I'm real big on that because it's just such a great experience.

I kinda new this post would generate some kind of brewhaha. lol

Furniture

Didn't see that much of the BI as we flew over on Saturday to board the Kona Aggressor (Saturday - Saturday ). Did some shopping in Kailua-Kona (too tourist for me) before boarding. But after, the following Saturday, rented a car and drove to Captain Cook - breakfast at the Coffee Shack, what a view and the grinds were exceptional then over to Pele plantation to meet Gus and Cindy for a tour - didn't know there was so much in processing coffee or the mac nut. Stayed only one night at the Outrigger. Had dinner at Jamisons by the Sea for our anniversary, then the long flight back home to PHL.

If we had more time I would have loved to see the volcano national park and the other side of the island, maybe in the near future. With family on Oahu, we'll be back.

I am glad to hear you had a wonderful trip to Kailua. Our community appreciates consciences vacationers who stay in legal vacation rental businesses that have a “non-conforming use” certificate like the Coffey’s B&B. We look forward to your return to our community.

We had a great time at a private rental in Kailua. It was clean, comfortable, quiet and private. Not far from the beach.

Thank you Karen for the kind words about tourists. All of the people we met in Kailua were very friendly to us.

Aloha!

As a full time residence in Lanikai , I would like to welcome all tourists. We enjoy sharing our beach with you. We are right next to Kailua where you can shop and dine. Our Lanikai beach like Kailua is considered one of the top ten beaches in the world..

Aloha!
