Guestbook comments from the owner

My family and I stayed at the Kimo's House and it was awesome! The location is across from the beautiful beach and you actually walk thru a small park before getting to the beach. We had a large group with adults and babies, and the home was perfect! I totally recommend the house, especially for families traveling with kids and babies. We look forward to staying there again.

Perfect Location for a Family Get Away!

  • 5 of 5

My father, brother, spouse, two small kids and I, stayed in the Plumeria Cottage for a week in August and it really was the perfect place for us to enjoy time with family. It's proximity to Kailua Beach can't be beat, with Buzz's Lanikai just a few minutes away as well. You honestly, can't park much closer to it. About 10-15 min walk way is a small deli/market, Island Snow shave ice, kayak rentals and a little hole in the wall hawaiian bbq joint. A 10 minute drive will put in Kailua town with tons of grocery stores and restaurants.

The open layout of the shared kitchen/dining/living space combined with the HUGE Lanikai gave us ample space for all six of us. The kitchen had every tool or pot we could want and we made use of the weber grill several times during our stay. There were sand toys, boogie boards, snorkel masks, beach chairs and a cooler that we used everyday to make our beach days comfortable and fun. And a closet full of board games to keep us entertained when we returned.

Prior to my arrival, I was a little worried about being in Hawaii in August when temperatures were in the mid to high 80s with no air conditioning, but the ceiling fans and island breeze through our second floor windows kept us cool at night.

And last, but certainly not least, Zak, Jim and Marge were incredibly friendly and responsive and gave us some great tips on outings.

I honestly could not have asked for a better place to spend time with my family.

Perfect place for our family!

  • 5 of 5

The location was perfect! We love Kailua Beach and to be able to walk across the street to the beach was wonderful. Not only was it convenient but it was well stocked with everything we needed for the beach and for cooking!! We would highly recommend this cottage. You will not regret it!!

GREAT location!

  • 5 of 5

This house is literally a 2 minute walk to the gorgeous Kailua beach and a 5-10 minute walk to essentially everything else in Kailua. Although this property has a downstairs unit and neighbors on all sides it still felt very private and relaxing. When we weren't exploring the island we spent most of our time on the huge partially covered deck. There were a total of 6 of us (myself, my husband & 4 kids {10,11,17,18}) staying in the unit and we had plenty of space and storage. The only negative I can think of is that the unit is a bit dated and the kitchen could benefit from an update but hey, I didn't come to Hawaii to stand in a kitchen all day so don't let that deter you! The unit has TONS of beach stuff, especially for the kids, beach towels and even an ice chest so all you have to do is bring your swimsuit and take that short 2 minute walk to paradise!

Our 7th Annual Visit to Plumeria Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I love Kailua and this special upstairs duplex unit. It is a five minute walk to one of the most beautiful beaches and parks in the Hawaiian Islands. Furnished comfortably and everything kept in excellent condition. The upstairs deck looks towards the Koolau Mountains and on clear days you can see the Pali, a famous landmark. Kailua has many wonderful restaurants of all cultures and price ranges. Excellent grocery stores including Whole Foods and Farmer's Markets. Unit comfortably set up for a couple or a family of six. We had family visiting and lots of quiet space for everyone. Newest addition are handicap access bars in one of the bathrooms. This was especially essential for my husband who was recovering from a recent hospitalization. Zak, our rental agent, was always available with a smile and assistance. Our landlords, Jim and Marj, keep their units in tip top condition and are always making additions for tenants. We are booked for our family vacation next winter. Great rental unit!

A great find

  • 5 of 5

A great find with everything you need to make the perfect holiday. The apartment was really well equipped and in a fantastic location - 3 minute walk to Kailua beach and within easy reach of shops. Parking available, especially useful during busy periods.

Great Family Holiday

  • 5 of 5

Trying to organize a family holiday in Hawaii was a challenge with 6 adults with diverse interests. Plumeria Cottage in Kailua fit the bill perfectly and we could not have been more pleased. The location is perfect. Walking to fantastic beaches was easy, walking to town for a coffee and paper was very comfortable, easy hiking was accessible, and surfing for the adventurous in our group was excellent. The ambiance of a small town was very pleasant; we are not fans of crowded resorts. Plumeria cottage was the right size for our group - very clean and comfortable. The owners, Marj and Jim were excellent hosts, responsive to our needs and providing information about local resources.

They were gracious and helpful. Altogether it was a wonderful place for our holiday.

Susan
