IF BOOKED, PLEASE ASK ABOUT MY OTHER RENTALS. Step back in time and soak up a peaceful, private, quintessential Hawaiian vacation experience. AC!

I'm sorry but we are not a suitable property for children under 10 years old.

The PINEAPPLE SUITE is a NEWLY REMODELED self-catering licensed vacation rental located on a secluded road, only a few short blocks from Kailua beach and minutes from Lanikai Beach. Nestled among tropical gardens, we have taken care to create a refuge of comfort that is designed to meet all your needs.

The Pineapple Suite is spacious and clean. It has a kitchenette with a full size refrigerator, sink, microwave, hot-plate, blender, toaster and dishes and cutlery. Everything you need to cook a nice meal at home.

Our tropical breezes are cooling and beautiful, but for those who need the option of AIRCONDITIONING, we have AC.

Please note we no longer offer access to pool or washer and dryer. Our current prices reflect this.

Please note this is a non-smoking home. We don't allow smoking in the suite or on the premises.

We provide Coffee for your first morning, but you may want to stock up with groceries from one of our many local grocery stores, including whole foods, just a 5 min. drive from your suite. Also we have a local farmers market (Thursday mornings from 9 am -10 am) just a 5 minute walk from us.

You will be lulled to sleep by the gentle tropical breeze. You will awaken refreshed after sleeping between luxurious sheets of 400 thread count. After savoring a breakfast of local fruit and Kona coffee, enjoy sitting on the lanai while listening to exotic bird songs.

Help yourself to a boogie board, beach chair and towel and take a seven minute stroll through a residential neighborhood, protected from traffic and crowds, as you make your way to Kailua Beach.

Rated among one of the best beaches in the US, here you will be welcomed by warm ocean breezes, turquoise blue waters and white sand that is soft and warm. Remember how it felt to be a carefree kid on summer break? Here you can relive those memories.

Go ahead and rent a kayak, surf board, paddle board, bike, kite board or windsurfing gear…all just 10 minutes from your guest suite. The ocean is your playground. Shopping, tennis and golf are also nearby!

Stop off at the famous Kalapawai Market where they can make you a delicious deli sandwich for a picnic lunch or serve up a latte just the way you like it.

Once you return to your home away from home at the Hula Breeze, take a nice nap before heading out to the charming town of Kailua. You’ll be surprised to find many restaurants to choose from in all price ranges.

You will be eager to return to your spacious suite where you may lounge on your comfy bed and perhaps enjoy some pineapple/coconut ice cream….sure to give you the sweetest of dreams.

If you choose to venture out to explore, Kailua is the perfect get-anywhere location. The island of Oahu is only 40 miles tip-to-tip, so you can explore it all quite easily. Honolulu and Waikiki are just a half-hour away. As your on-site hosts, we will help you discover and enjoy our beautiful island.

Sven and Allison live on site and we are happy to help you with any questions and to provide you with our local knowledge. We have Ringo, a Portugese water dog, who is a real clown!

We welcome you to come stay at the Hula Breeze and enjoy all the wonderful delights that Hawaii and Kailua have to offer!

About Allison Shadday

We love to travel and we love our Hawaiian home. In 1998 we took a year off to visit 17 different countries. Our travel experience gives us first-hand knowledge of what makes a simple room a “second home.' Sven speaks fluent German. Allison is a counselor who listens well in any language. Ellie is our friendly Bernese Mt. Dog who wonders how she ended up in Hawaii. We are happy to share our “local” perspective on activities, sites to visit and restaurants.

Allison Shadday purchased this studio in 2009

Why Allison Shadday chose Kuulei Tract

We have lived in many spectacular places, but Kailua offers us the ideal location to pursue all our passions. One of the most beautiful beaches in the world is just a few blocks away. Hiking, biking, golfing, kayaking, windsurfing, kite-boarding and more are available just a few minutes from our home. We can walk to the quaint town of Kailua or take a 30 minute drive to Honolulu for world class cuisine. The tropical weather allows us to enjoy water sports all year long! Not to mention the warmth and kindness of our Hawaiian neighbors. We have found one of the greatest places on earth!

What makes this studio unique

We truly have one of the best locations in Kailua. Just a 7 min. walk to beautiful Kailua Beach, and a 12 min walk to cute Kailua Town. Located on a quiet cul-de-sac with no street traffic. You are in a protected setting in one of Kailua's nicest neighborhoods. Our license is a real plus as well!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks so much for the kind makes us so happy to hear that our guests relax and rejuvnate during their stays with us. We hope you come back soon!

Warmest Aloha, Allison & Sven

Perfect Spot!

  • 5 of 5

The Pineapple Suite was a perfect place for us to stay January 3-9, 2018. I was originally looking for a place with bikes but kept coming back to Hula Breeze. Then it dawned on me that we could stay in this clean, adorable cottage and rent bikes - which is exactly what we did. The unit is exactly as pictured. It was perfectly located. Our bikes were delivered to our door by a shop just around the corner. We then rode to Lanakai Beach a couple of times with the great beach chair backpacks provided by Alison and Sven. Days like that you never forget! There was so much to see on Oahu that we need to come back and when we do, we will stay here again! Thank you for a great visit!

Lovely place, would recommend

  • 5 of 5

This charming garden unit is spacious ( studio) with very comfortable king size bed, good linens, plenty of cupboard space with hangers, meticulously clean! kitchen well equipped although note there is only a hot plate, no stove ( which is apparently normal for units of this type in Kailua/Lanakai area); only thing I would recommend is some additional cups and glasses of a 'non giant' size - but this is a minor preferrence on my part and not a complaint at all; The bathroom is small but again meticulously clean - the new large towels were lovely! appreciated having the new beach towels as well; beach chairs, boogie board and other beach toys were available; The location is excellent and once you know your way around you can easily walk into town - there is a whole foods, a foodland and more; some great small restaurants - Kailua still offers a chance at 'old Hawaii' which I very much appreciated as a many time visitor to hawaii. Alison had set up the arrival to be very easy ; she was very responsive on email if we had any questions - quick to answer; she also offered great tips and hints for enjoying the area. Loved it and would recommend.

Great location and great hosts!

  • 5 of 5

We were only in Kailua for a couple of days, but being so close to the beach, market, and town meant that we got to spend the majority of our time walking around and enjoying the scenery. The market by the beach had great coffee and scones! The place itself is small, but it's exactly what we booked and all that we needed. Kailua is beautiful, and if you can make it up the Pillbox hike you can see the beauty from a whole new perspective! Will recommend to anyone we know who is travelling that way.
