Amazing hospitality

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Cheryl's place in Kailua for 8 days in early April. Even before we arrived we felt like we knew her, she was super communicative and helpful with a few questions that we had. Her apartment is everything we wanted, very private, and just a few minutes drive to the most beautiful beach we've ever been to. It's easy to walk there as well, but we found that we took the beach chairs (thanks Cheryl) every day, so we drove. The town itself is fantastic, many restaurants (we particularly enjoyed Buzz's and The Food Company), and of course we visited Whole Foods daily as the apartment kitchen made eating in very easy, absolutely everything you need is there. Kailua is very easy to get to from Honolulu, very quick freeway, as well as a good road around the coast. Also a lovely drive up the east coast to the North Shore. We'd highly recommend both Kailua as a destination and Cheryl's apartment in particular.

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed stay here. the location is half way between the beach and the town with both easily walkable. This unit has every possible kitchen and bath amenity plus outdoor equipment including beach chairs, umbrellas and snorkels which we used every day. Everything was spotless and tastefully decorated. Great getaway for 2 in Kailua!

Lovely, Quiet, Easy Walk to Town and Beach

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed at many rental properties in Kailua, and this has been our best by far. 5-10 minute walk into town (feels like less since the weather is so lovely), similar to the beach. Bed and pillows are very comfortable, place is really clean, air conditioning is a nice bonus for warmer days (though air flow is good and windows have screens, so no bugs). Laundry a huge plus, and as everyone has said, Cheryl has really thought of everything! She had great recommendations for us, and was so sweet and easy to work with. We will be returning for all our subsequent visits to Kailua!

A Much Needed Rest

  • 5 of 5

Cheryl's apartment is lovely. She has it stocked with everything you could possibly need. Cheryl herself is a gracious and informative hostess. We needed a break and this was perfect. We walked into town almost every day as the apartment is that close. I would highly recommend this apartment in Kailua. The beach is super close and beautiful.

The property is clean and quiet and very well stocked

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in Kailua for many years and this is the best property so far. It is clean, quiet and a good value. Cheryl is great and went way beyond in getting us reconnected with some items we left behind. Look forward to staying there again soon.

I am a 10 minute leisure walk to the most beautiful beaches in the world! A great walk through the neighborhood. You can stop and get a hamburger or sit and have cocktails before walking home. Maybe a shaved ice at the same place as President Obama! It's the best treat after a warm summer day at the beach. A 10 min walk in the other direction will lead you into kailua town, which offers shopping and great eateries.... Don't like walking, I have bikes you can get there with too. Small town community offering all the luxuries and amenities to meet every need.
