About the property

One Bedroom, One Bathroom, Sleeps Four, Ten Minute Walk To The Beach

This one bedroom apartment is located on Kalaheo Hillside across the street from a church and one block away from a shopping center with a Safeway, a Burger King and several other restaurants.

The apartment has a fenced yard and lovely green lawn. There is a patio with a Weber Charcoal Barbeque. Inside you will find a roomy 700 square feet divided by a folding wall that closes off the bedroom or opens up for a more spacious feeling. The bathroom is recently remodeled with a new shower and vanity. The kitchen was also remodeled last year and is fully equipped with everything you need to do your own cooking. The living room is comfortably furnished and includes a queen size Futon bed/couch and TV with internet connection. There is also a window air conditioner.

The bedroom has a queen size bed and ceiling fan. We just added a new window air conditioner.

There is parking available on the grass just outside your private gate and front door. A washer and dryer are located in the attached garage and are for your exclusive use.

The owner lives in the upper level of the house and will be available to help if needed. It is not a two story house. The upper level is uphill a half story up and shares a common wall with the lower unit.

The beach is just a short walk away along Kalaheo Avenue, past Kailuana Street, where the president has stayed while here on vacation, then down a beach access path. This end of Kailua beach is less crowded than the Kailua Beach Park area.

About Johanna Lillico

I grew up here on Oahu and graduated from the University of Hawaii. I have lived here in Kailua for 25 years. My husband, Rusty, is a retired contractor and is a great handyman. Our two kids grew up in Kailua and are pursuing their college educations. We have two small dogs and a cat.

Johanna Lillico purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Johanna Lillico chose Kailua

This house is conveniently located near everything and is in a very nice neighborhood. The apartment is sunny and bright and private.

What makes this apartment unique

Near Kailua beach and the sunrise. The windward side of the island is a little cooler especially after the sun goes down behind the Koolau mountains. The jalousie windows throughout the apartment open to the soothing trade winds.

We will strive to make your stay as pleasant as possible.

Convenient location to Kailua town, the beach, and shopping!

It felt very private and it was close to many things like beaches, grocery stores and restaurants.

  • 5 of 5

We came to Kailua to visit my son stationed at the Marine base. It was fun to visit the places he goes to and to discover new places together. Hale Ekolu was clean and comfortable. We didn’t want for anything. They were very thorough in putting this place together. We would definitely come back.
