About Kimberly and Tom Danks

Aloha, My name is Kim Danks(on the Right) I have been a long term Hawaii Resident and am so Happy to be able to share part of Kailua with you. I moved into this amazing home in 2006 and knew right away what we were going to do with the Suite next door. We are located in the perfect spot here in Kailua as we are very close to the Magnificant Kailua Beach and Quaint Kailua Town. We are located at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac which makes our property a sanctuary. I have truely come to know the Laid Back style that Kailua brings as daily walks along the shore, or swimming to flat Island cause in ones life. The local hiking is not one to miss, and I take advantage of really getting to know the Island as often as I can. I Love to share my Property with Guests as a way of sharing Aloha.

Kimberly and Tom Danks purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Kimberly and Tom Danks chose Kailua

I chose to buy a vacation rental at Kailua Beach, Hawaii so I would be able to share the amazing Windward side of Oahu to Guests who would otherwise might only get to enjoy Waikiki Hotels. Hawaii has so much more to offer then the hustle and bustle of Waikiki city. Our Kailua is a Tropical wonder with so much to do and experience. Kailua Beach rated in the top 10 beaches of the world is just a short walk from our lovely Hawaiian Suite.

What makes this cottage unique

Relaxing on the patio at this Kailua beach vacation rental - Tropical Sands Luxury Suite with the Kukui nut tree umbrella overhead feeling the cool ocean breeze should not be missed. The fountain feature adds the soothing movement of water that deepens relaxation. Nestled inside the property the Suite is enveloped with tropical foliage and very private for your pleasure. Upon entering the Suite you will be very pleased to find an extremely clean and comfortable unit to call your own while vacationing. Tropical Sands is stocked very well and the local furnishings are extremely comfortable. The experience is one that should not be missed.

Best experience ever!

  • 5 of 5

Part of the reason I booked this rental, was because of the great reviews from previous guests. Everyone had great things to say about the owners. Unfortunately, I didn't get a chance to formally meet Kim and I briefly met Tom. Not because they are not friendly, but because we were rarely home. This being our first visit to Hawaii, we spent a lot of time exploring the island. Kailua is by far my favorite area in Oahu! And this cottage just felt like home. It really does have everything you need. And it was awesome that they had beach towels and boogie boards for us to use. We'll definitely be returning to Tropical Sands. I can't say enough positive things about this place! 5+ stars!!

Tropical Sands Kailua Hawaii

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our 2 week stay in this cute little condo! It is located in a very nice neighborhood in Kailua,Oahu about a ten minute walk to the best beach I've been on in Oahu. We were very comfortable and loved the decor, location and privacy. My husband and I cooked mostly every night -- the kitchen was fully stocked with knives, pots/pans, etc. we plan to stay there again on our next trip to Oahu. The property is very clean and well maintained; chairs are available for the beach and plenty of beach towels. The washer/dryer was very handy as we like to pack very light. We will rent Tropical Sands again, excellent place to get away and enjoy Hawaii

Beautifully maintained suite

  • 5 of 5

A lovely welcome of flowers and fruit and soft Hawaiian music playing on a radio awaited us upon entering this charmingly decorated suite. We had everything we needed for our stay in this lovely spot, which was just perfect for a couple wanting to get away from it all. We appreciated the many thoughtful touches, such as the beach gear provided, the wonderfully soft linens and comfortable bed, and all the appliances and utensils we could possibly need in the kitchen. "Luxury Suite" is not an overstatement. The morning after our arrival, we awoke to the sound of songbirds bathing in the fountain outside our window. We enjoyed the 10-minute stroll down the street to the beach, but we also drove to several other exceptionally nice beaches nearby as. All the shopping amenities we could wish for were at hand, but the property itself is at the end of a cul-de-sac and gets very little traffic by. All in all, we were very pleased with our stay. This is the fourth or fifth rental we've done through VRBO, and it was our favorite so far. Mahalo!

Owner's Response: Aloha Kathryn and thank you for your lovely review. I feel the array of beautiful Hawaiian birds that dance in the babbling water feature on your tropical patio, morning and afternoon, bring peace, joy and and total relaxation. A symphony of God's beautiful creation found here in the Islands. We hope for your return. Aloha, Kim and Tom

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review, We totally agree that Tropical Sands is perfectly located. Walk to the beach, or to town in such a short time is a terrific way to get acquainted with our special Kailua. Tropical Sands is approximately 500 square feet inside, and a perfect size for most travelers. Aloha. Kim and Tom

If you book this suite you are in for a treat!

The suite was very clean and well maintained. I loved the beach décor and having all the amenities you'd have at home like a washer/dryer and the coffee maker. We were also pleasantly surprised to find beach chairs which we took with us when we traveled around the island.

My husband and I would have breakfast out in the little patio in the morning under the trees listening to the birds which was so beautiful.

You are nearby to a lot of shopping (food and souvenirs), but also very close to a beautiful beach, which we absolutely took advantage of. We actually loved going to Wholefoods at night to make a salad and bring it home for dinner after a day of traveling. Wholefoods is right around the corner.

The street is very quiet and the bed is very comfortable so after a day of adventure you are guaranteed a great night's sleep. Every morning I woke up feeling super refreshed and ready to take on the day.

The location was perfect (if you rent a car) to travel all around the island. It seemed like nothing was over an hour away, the farthest being North Shore. It was very centrally located to all points of interest around the island.

We would absolutely stay here again and that's saying a lot because we are a couple who really likes to visit new destinations when planning our next trip however I would love to go back again just to sleep in that bed!

My husband and I agree that this was the best vacation to date. The owners of this property really know what they're doing. Thank you VERY much for a wonderful stay! You have a beautiful property and live on a beautiful island! I can't sing it's praises high enough!! Mahalo!!!!!!!!
