The cottage is a one bedroom located within walking distance to beach and shopping area that has a variety of restaurants, local stores and chains (Whole Foods and Longs) Owner/manager's where responsive, with check in and out very easy. Cottage was furnished adequately and had a small outside area to eat or relax in. Décor was standard and the wood paneling is not my favorite but traditional for when the cottage was probably built.
Cute and spacious cottage! No problems checking in or out. Stores, restaurants and beach is near by. Restaurants close by were vegan and vegetarian friendly. The kitchenette took a little time to maneuver and our surge protector fried up, but it was more user error than anything. The bedroom was nice and comfy, not many outlets though. The other guests were loud at night in the courtyard and some geckos got into our room through the walls somehow. We still had a blast and the little hiccups made for some laughs. I would stay here again.
If you are looking for a five star Motel on Waikiki, this is the wrong place. But, if you are looking for a great place to rest and sleep after days filled with adventure and site seeing. You will love the Cottage, we had plenty of privacy. A very comfortable bed, and lots of little simple amenities that made this a perfect home base for the quieter side of Oahu. Just a short run from Kailua Beach and Lanikai Beach, where sea kayaking, boogie boarding and, paddle boarding are readily available. There are also some small islands just off the coast that can be explored as well.The traffic jams and large crowds of people are miles away on the other side of the island. Groceries close by at Target and Safeway made it easy to save money on meals, and everything we needed for preparations was here at the cottage. Oh and did I say the bed was really comfy as well. There was ample room and beach equipment available as needed. The owners are very accommodating, but respectful of your privacy. I know that we will be back, my wife is a bit finicky, but she absolutely loved everything.
We stayed at Kay's vacation rental for 5 nights and we have a great experience. The family who runs the place were very attentive and quick to response to any of our questions or request. They have a lot of beach and snorkeling equipment you can use, they also have a little park a few meters away that we used often for our 2 year old daughter.
If we go back to Kailua we will definitely stay with them again.
What a wonderful stay we had. A great holiday let comfortable, cozy, clean and stylish. And they thought of everything you could need from a toaster to a body board. Plus it is a great Base for your holiday easy access to the roads to get anywhere on the island with one of the world's best beaches just a short walk away.
Disappointed that the cottage had old beds that smelled. The mattresses were old and stained. I had to wash the sheets to improve the unpleasant smells. The only good thing about this cottage was that it was close to the beach.
Convenient Condo in walking distance to the beautiful Kailua Beach, where parking might be a problem. It provides fair space in the living room and bedroom. WiFi and a modern TV keep you connected . The kitchen part with mobile cooking equipment is relatively basic. If you find a shortage of plates, glasses etc. just talk to Brenda and she will help out. She will also provide good advice if you are looking for restaurants and things to do. Towels and chairs for the beach are really outstanding. We enjoyed our stay.
