It was a perfect place to move around the island. The beds were comfortable and the pool area was relaxing. Had all the beach stuff we needed. The dog became my boys favorite part and the little boy. We would stay again.

Great, family friendly place and location!

  • 5 of 5

Had everything we needed. John and his family were super friendly, even the dog. It’s also a short walk to the shack, Starbucks, movies and the store. Super short drive to the best beaches in O’ahu. I would recommend this place and look forward to staying again in the future, Mahalo!

Nice neighborhood and close to beaches.

  • 4 of 5

John was a wonderful host and his family was lovely. The family dog was awesome and we enjoyed having a dog on the property. The house was clean and the two bedrooms share a Jack and Jill bathroom which worked great with our family. The neighborhood was friendly and close to shopping and beaches. Only suggestions would be handsoap in kitchen and bathroom would have been nice. Also some pictures on the walls would have made it homey. Thank you John !

More than I expected!

  • 5 of 5

I simply loved this place! The place was HUGE, I was very skeptical about the pictures, as it looked too good to be true, too roomy. Well let me tell you this place was GREAT, we literally had a bit too much room (since I wanted me to keep the family nice and tight). The unit I rented had two bedroom with adjoining bathroom upstairs and then the Lanai was HUGE with another twin size sofa bed where the boys slept and we spent most of our time at night playing cards and games. The beach was very close (we almost ran into it without knowing), the Google map makes it look much farther for some reason. The kitchen was updated with nice granite countertops and again HUGE, all rooms have a TV and the couch downstairs can sleep 2 adults comfortably. There was 2 adults and 4 kids in our group so we all decided to sleep upstairs. There are chairs and beach toys to take to the beach. The pool was beautiful, but freeeezing since it was Dec, but we jumped in it anyways. The one thing I wasn't so sure of was the dog, it was quite and friendly until the kids started playing in the pool, he came around the corner with its ears and tail up like he was in alert and started barking and chasing the boys. We told the boys to jump in the pool where it was "safe" and went n got the owner who took it away, also at some point the dog pooped this huge poop on the grass almost right in front of our unit so I told the boys to watch out and make sure they didn't step on it. Other than that our stay was great, you dont see or hear much from the owners or other occupants, the location is great with a Safeway and eating places within walking distance. I was very happy to not let my skepticism change my mind about this place.

Terry's Trip

  • 5 of 5

Super Spot...This two bedroom is awesome! Downstairs the fully loaded kitchen and living area is spotless and just steps away from John's lovely pool.The bedrooms are upstairs and open to a beautiful lanai complete with comfy couch and cafe type table and chairs. You simply can't beat the stunning mountain view. I have stayed at John's place for three years in a row. I love the area...great neighborhood, secure entry and ample parking. John is a great host. He loves his Oahu home and suggested The Lanikai Pillbox Hike..just minutes from his home..I wouldn't stay anywhere else. Highly recommend this place..I especially love the neighborhood setting.Weekday mornings you can hear the nearby elementary school begin their day with a patriotic song and Hawaii's State Song. You'll have to step out to the Lanai can't hear it from the bedrooms. John has a lovely family and your stay will give you a feeling of Aloha to last a long time. I love seeing other guests coming and going.Each time I stay here I have had a wonderful, welcoming, positive experience..Kailua is a wonderful place and John's place just can't be beat for the most affordable price and genuine taste of Island living.Two thumbs up!!! 🌴? 🌴? 🌴?

Two Thumbs up for Kailua Rentals!!!

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed 3 times in Kailua Rentals. I visit once a year and have stayed in 3 of John's available suites. I have found reach room to be comfortable, clean and well maintained. I love the Kailua location. Kailua Rentals is in a safe,secure neighborhood. There is much to see and do in and around Kailua. Great shopping in Kailua. Beautiful Beaches. Nearby movie theater and grocery shopping. Easy to get around You can travel to so many places without having to deal with Honolulu traffic. The Pali, Queen Emma's Palace, Kaneohe, Valley of The Temples. I love that John's place has secured gating. The bus line is just yards away..Beaches are easy to get to. Family friendly ...John and his wife have two beautiful, well behaved children. These kids are never underfoot but I have seen John's daughter chatting with some visiting children before. John knows his island well as it is obvious that he wants your visit to be a a positive one..he is so knowledgeable and can answer questions that only a local could. You can usually find John on the property throughout the day but if not, he is only a text away. Great TV selection. AC works great. Each shower is so large and comfortable. The water is always hot . Two Thumbs up here. I wouldn't want to stay anywhere else..I have done the Waikiki stay as well and believe me, you want to stay here.This is your home away from home. I guess the proof is in the pudding...I wouldn't return and seek out Kailua Rentals if I didn't think it was a super place to stay.Highly recommend this place.You can't go wrong here . 3 stays in 3 years.. Speaks for itself. You can't beat the price or the hospitality. Aloha..Terry Shaw. ( I'm on FB if you want to pm me ) This place is just perfect!
