It was splendid!

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay. It was out of the hustle and bustle of Honolulu and close to the beach. A very nice restaurant right across the street and a grocery store just a few blocks away. We were very pleased with the home and the fact that it was all behind a gated fence. It was also nice that they made some beach toys available for our child. We had a very good stay and would highly recommend it to anyone.

nice place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We really liked our 8 night stay in Kailua in the end of February. Very convenient location (walking distance to the beach and Safeway). The weather was not the best during our stay, but the owners made us feel very welcome and like home. We really appreciate Annette's and Dietrich hospitality and Barb's good heart. The unit it self very nice. Every morning we woke up by birds singing like in the jungle. We definitely will be back!

Amazing Location and Beautiful Suite

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay with Annette and Dieter! We got in late and Annette had stocked the fridge with some breakfast essentials, including fresh bananas from their tree. The space is great for two people and the bed is very comfy.

Good location, Nicely kept unit

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 6 nights in February 2018. We enjoyed the location in a quiet residential neighborhood within easy walking distance of a very nice beach. The unit is well-kept & has everything we needed. The hosts were very welcoming and helped to make our stay very enjoyable

The location can’t be beat. This lovely property is an oasis on Oahu. Quiet, clean, comfortable and a 5 minute walk to the amazing Kailua Beach. Barb is lovely to work with and took care of all our needs! From the fresh fruit awaiting us, to the use of their boogie boards and snorkel gear - we had a perfect stay and will definitely be back!

Roomy, comfortable, and all the amenities of home. Everybody so very nice and helpful.

  • 4 of 5

We loved our 3-week stay with Annette & Dieter. They are such warm and caring people, and filled with good suggestions for hiking and sightseeing. It felt like we were visiting the home of family, like staying at an aunt's house. Roomy, comfortable, and all the amenities of home.

While the owners were away for a week in the middle of our stay, we developed a good rapport with their maintenance/cleaner/dog-care lady. Any problems that cropped up were quickly resolved, like showing us where the knife sharpener was located, or when we asked for some tools to help adjust our sports equipment. Their little Daschund Tino was quite personable in his greetings to us whenever we crossed paths, otherwise he mostly kept to himself.

The rooms remained at a comfortable temperature throughout our December into January stay, despite vastly changeable weather, ranging from warm and dry to cold and wet (for Hawai'i standards)---we just opened the slatted jalousies or closed them accordingly. The house and yard get adequate shade from the mature trees around the yard.

The front gate for the entire property was nice in that it not only separated the whole yard from the street traffic, but also allowed the front yard to seem as if it were part of the rental portion---we had our car parked there. It was also convenient for allowing our other son to have access to his surfboard which he was keeping here because it was a much shorter walk to the beach than where he and his girlfriend were renting. And talk about beach convenience---it was only 6 minutes' walk with empty hands (8 minutes with longboards). The only drive to beach we did was for a Lanikai Beach sunrise experience.

We will most surely book with them again if possible.

Thank-you from Mark, Thomas and Leena,

Vancouver, Canada

Car: recommended

We are very close to Kailua Beach, Oahu, within walking distance. Shopping, Restaurants are nearby, a drive to Honolulu and Waikiki takes about 35 minutes. The famous North Shore with the Polynesian Cultural Center is about an hour drive. The map provided is wrong. We are in Kailua, Oahu, not in Kona.
