This is one of those places that you hesitate to review...because you want to keep it all to yourself. But I realize that would be selfish, especially since I can't be in Kailua 52 weeks a year! This is not a standard B&B. Only one couple or group (1 or 2 bedrooms) is hosted at a time, so you are guaranteed privacy (but have the world's sweetest B&B hostess to advise you). Instead of fighting the crowds at Waikiki, this feels like staying with your favorite aunt at her house, if your aunt had a nice home in the same neighborhood in which the Obama's vacation. There is a very comfortable king-sized bed, free internet, adorable bathroom with atrium garden, use of a beautiful landscaped pool and hot tub, and you have TWO private decks, downstairs with hammock and table, and upstairs, where I watched the gorgeous sunrise (although apparently that is visible from the deck only two months of the year) and saw a huge full arc rainbow. It is 2 blocks to a beach access and a mile to the famous Kailua Beach, a tropical paradise of sugar white sand and aqua water. Plus a lovely continental breakfast, a mini fridge and microwave, beach towels, and instructions on sight-seeing. Did I mention the incredible Hawaiian bird songs? This is in a real home, so not for those who want a 5 star hotel, but absolutely great for those who want a 5 star experience on a budget.
