The Hula Breeze
Ranked #2 of 13 Kailua B&B and Inns
Reviewed January 8, 2014

We loved to stay in the Hula Breeze. The room is clean and nice. It is very quiet. The beautiful beaches from Kailua and Lanikai are just a few minutes away. Alisson and Sven are great hosts and the dogs are very funny.

This was our second stay at Hula Breeze. Rooms are spacious and very clean. Garden and pool area very attractive and well tended. They also have a couple of dogs to give loves to daily.

My family of 4 from Australia recently stayed in the Pineapple Suite at Hula Breeze and loved it. The location was great, the hosts beautiful and very informative and the accommodation perfect for us.

All being able bodied, we found the beach and the town center for shopping, both easily in walking distance.

Hula Breeze is conveniently located in the middle of both yet itself situated in a "no through road" which provides some much appreciated quiet time - perfect to relax.

We all loved our stay - Thank you Allison, Sven and of course adorable Ringo (Family Dog).

Aloha!

It was a delight getting to know you all and seeing such a wonderful family enjoy each other and have so much fun together. You made us want to get back to Australia!

Keep surfing and having fun! Come see us again sometime :)

We had a wonderful time staying in the Pineapple Room at the Hula Breeze for our honeymoon... spacious, well-appointed, and comfortable room, with plenty of personal touches (loved the welcome message, the delicious muffins, and the champagne!). Allison and her dogs Ringo and Ellie did a lovely job of making us feel at home... they really do embody the aloha spirit.

Definitely worth checking out if you'll be staying in Kailua, which is amazing in and of itself... wonderful beach (which is just a short walk from the B&B) and terrific restaurants made it a welcome respite after the first part of our trip in Waikiki.

Loved Kailua! Loved the Hula Breeze!
I feel guilty that this will be such a short rave review but, basically, you can see what makes the Hula Breeze so special by reading all the other nice things that so many other reviewers have already written. In summary, Kailua is everything 'real and local' in a beachside community - where Waikiki is all things Las Vegas - and the Hula Breeze with hosts Alison and Sven is a home from home - for those not looking for a 14-story hotel block integrated into a shopping mall. We loved every moment and only wish we could have spent longer! Paul & Sue.

Stayed in the Pineapple Room for 3 nights in October 2013.

Please appreciate that this establishment has TWO DIFFERENT ROOMS and self-check-in, so it is possible to check yourself into the wrong room if both rooms are empty upon arrival. Clue #1 – your reservations will indicate “Palm Room” or “Pineapple Suite”, which amazingly matches a permanent sign at each room’s entrance. Clue #2 – A white dry erase white board is posted outside each entrance, with a cute note like “Welcome (your name here)”. When standing at the street and facing the house, the left entrance leads to the Palm Room, the right entrance leads to the Pineapple Suite. I only mention these little details because upon arrival, we found that the other room’s guests failed to recognize either clue.

Excellent hospitality from Sven. He answered many questions about the island and loaned us an island trail book for hiking ideas. We highly recommend the Pill Box hike. The trail head has very little parking, but is only a couple of blocks from the south /east end of Kailua Beach Park, with abundant parking. You could hike from the Hula Breeze, or drive to the beach park to save a half mile of walking each way.

Made the short hike to beautiful Kailua Beach each morning and watched the sunrise. We were treated to a double rainbow one morning. On another morning the beach and roads were constipated with runners in and watchers of a 15K road race.

Excellent communication from Allison. A few days prior to our arrival, Allison needed to travel to the mainland. She provided alternate contact names/phone numbers should we need any assistance while she was gone and Sven was at work. Additionally, Hawaiian Airlines canceled our flights 2 1/2 months before the trip; the ultimate impact was staying at Hula Breeze for 3 nights instead of our originally booked 4 nights. Allison graciously changed the reservation with no charge.

Listing advertised first morning’s coffee and fruit as included. A bowl of fruit (papaya, bananas, apples, oranges) was on the table at check-in; and the fridge had a container of ground coffee and 2 very large tasty banana chocolate muffins.

Would stay again.

Sounds like you made the most of your time here. We hope to have you back again sometime.

After travelling for 3 months all over Europe and USA, we were looking foward to a few days of down time on Oahu without being amongst the rat race of Waikiki. Hula Breeze served that to us in spades. The Pineapple Suite as simply good! We were provided with all amenities of a self contained cottage, it as fun to go food shopping again just for snack essentials thankks to the small kitchen area in place. Sometimes the expensive part of travellng was eating out so having the chance to eat in like being at home was lovely. Everything in the suite was excellent, the bed was to die for in comfyness, the feeling of being at home was very special. Having the chance to be part of a community even for a few days was lovely and made me appreciate Hawaii more than if I was down in Waikiki amongst the tourist traps.

Having lived on Oahu years ago comng back to Kailua felt great and staying at the Hula Breeze was a big component of that.
