About the property

2 Bedroom + Den, 2 Bath, (Sleeps up to 8)

The Master Suite in this house will take your breath away and is on a third story all to its own. It is hard to decide what is more beautiful ... the Ocean Views or the Mountain Views. The suite has AC but you won't need it as you will be lulled to sleep by the quiet lapping of the waves on the beach and cool ocean air. The house is just one house away from the beach access or about 50ft away.

2nd bedroom has a queen bed and is on the main level (2nd story). This room also has AC, a futon, and pull out couch.

The kitchen has everything you will need and opens to the living room and dinning areas on either side. The vaulted ceilings make it very light and airy. The living room has a queen day bed and twin day bed which also has a twin trundle under it. So with the addition of pullout and a futon in the 2nd bedroom there are a variety of accommodations for additional guests. We don't expect you will use all of the bedding options but its certainly nice to have such a wide range of options in case your group calls for it.

The house comes with everything for the beach: Chairs, Beach Mats, cooler, boogie boards, surf board, and much more.

Please note this house was taken off VRBO for a couple years while rented long term (thus the gap in cust reviews). Furnishings, bathroom remodel and updated pictures taken Aug 2017.

About Mark

I grew up in the Midwest and moved to Oahu for my love of the Ocean. There is nowhere else on Oahu I would rather live than the windward side of the island (East Side). I have my own Real Estate Company called Petritz Realty. I specialize in investment real estate and income producing properties. I do the property management on my properties as well as for some friends and family. Please let me know if you are interested in looking at Real Estate while you are here with us. I look forward to meeting you. Warm Aloha,

Mark purchased this house in 2010

Why Mark chose Oahu

The beach is right there and you will have it to yourself. Very quiet beautiful white sand.

What makes this house unique

People really appricate the variety of bedding options.

The 2nd bathroom is actually 2 bathrooms. A shower room with sink/vanity and a separate toilet room with its own vanity. Long story short a lot of people can get ready at one time.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great place to stay for a beach getaway. Two houses away from beautiful Kailua Beach. We loved getting up in the morning and taking a walk on the beach or going for a dip. The area is pretty quiet and residential. The place has plenty of sleeping options, and we especially enjoyed the top floor bedroom. There are a few interesting structural design things happening. The place works great! Instructions were clear, and the place has an added bonus of keyless entry for beach trips.

Perfect position along the beach in Kailua

  • 5 of 5

Perfect position along the beach in Kailua. Nice house in quiet residential area. The perfect spot for someone looking to avoid the crowd of Waikiki but staying not far away from Honolulu. We really enjoyed it.

Secluded and Quiet!

  • 5 of 5

We had an unreal vacation in Kailua. This house had everything we needed and is steps from the beach. Loved the upstairs bedroom and the ocean view. The house is 5 minutes to downtown Kailua and only a couple minutes from another area with a grocery store and Nico's which has amazing Poke. Kailua beach is huge and totally uncrowded and great for body surfing. I highly recommend this spot if you are looking for a quiet spot that is relaxing and has everything that you need.

Felt like home

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time, our rental was like a new home. My boys loved that the beach was literally 1 minute away, so did my wife for that matter. It was more important to us to be close to a beach, easy access to main roads for adventures, along with a safe environment for us to stay in. (We heard that Waikiki wasn't as welcoming). The house housed us all well and had everything we needed. Being on the second and third floor gave great breezes when it was hot, but we were usually at the beach.

I saw some bad reviews and wanted to point out that if your looking for really high luxury with waiters, expensive TVs, etc. why don't you just go to a huge resort near home? Marks place is for the pleasure and feeling of traveling to Hawaii, his rental makes you feel like you belong there.

Thank you Karin and Mark for the wonderful stay.

Not as described or expected

  • 1 of 5

I hesitate to write a review of this property only because it appears that any negative review is critically refuted or discredited by the owner. However, facts are facts. First the POSITIVE: Location to beautiful Kailua Beach was as described and is very close and convenient to the house (certainly the most positive aspect of this rental). Also, the neighborhood is very pleasant and a convenient location to restaurants and shops. Dealing with Mark was a pleasant experience. The views from the upstairs bedroom were beautiful! Now the NEGATIVE: House needs upgrading! This house advertises air conditioning but only has one very small unit in the very upstairs bedroom. It doesn't keep the bedroom within a comfortable range much less other areas of the house. Additional fans were brought over on Thursday (after we shared how very hot the unit was on Sunday) but they didn't help a whole lot (although we were thankful for them). The house appears as if it's been furnished from the cheapest furniture to be found (rusty and very uncomfortable). I have seen college dormitories better furnished and equipped. If the owner would spend a few dollars and upgrade the furnishings from Craigslist or Goodwill it would be a huge improvement! While the house is older and dated (pictures make it look much better than it is) it has potential. Improved furnishings, paint and a few more A/C units would make this place much nicer. The appliances are very outdated and the grill and accessories are in horrible condition (pretty much unusable). The beach accessories were fair (some of the boogie boards were broken and one of the 2 canvas beach chairs had the seat ripped out and was unusable). I, like one of the other reviewers, have taken pictures of this unit and they certainly don't look like the ones as advertised. I'm not sure where all the spacious room and back porch are that are mentioned in other reviews for this rental. There was no back porch, only a very small area roped off from the rest of the yard that we were able to use. Although it is stated that the house sleeps 8, I can't imagine how 8 adults would fit and share the one full bathroom. Housekeeping could have been better. When we arrived there was laundry in both the washer and dryer and the floors needed to be swept. Overall, unless this unit is updated, I can't in good conscious recommend staying here.

Owner's Response: You brought up some great points as well as few that were pretty off base. Only the bedrooms have AC and most of the year you won't need it. The house gets a wonderful tradewind breeze that blow threw it. Not sure if i missed anything in there. Not to "discredit you" but the guest that stayed just 2 weeks later left a 5 star review.....and we didn't change any of the furnishings other than the boogie boards and beach chairs which were broken. They only last 6 months or so with the salt air and heavy use. Someone used the charcoal grill as a fie pit and melted the handles. There was a 2nd one there but was rolled around the side of the house and they must have missed it. Couches have been replaced with daybeds in 2017

This was the perfect beach house! Only steps away from the most gorgeous beach. The 3rd floor bedroom was private and had views of both ocean and mountains. It was nicely appointed to meet all our needs. The kitchen was larger than expected. The neighborhood was quiet yet close to everything.
