A Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

This property is very comfortable and in a convenient, peaceful location. Sally provides everything you need to enjoy your vacation including use of the pool. The house is beautiful and surrounded with lush vegetation and we enjoyed sitting outside after our outings. Dante, the standard poodle, will come by to visit as well. He is very well-behaved and serene. There are several convenience stores and restaurants within walking distance as well as the big Kailua Beach Park so you can get by without a car. However, we opted to rent a car at the airport which gave us more freedom to tour the island and enjoy the many beautiful look-out points and amazing beaches. We would love to return to Sally's property!

Tropical paradise in Kailua

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay here at Tropical Hale and hope to return again in the future. The accommodations are amazing. The interior design is magazine worthy while being comfortable, the space feels much larger than it really is, and the kitchenette is such a wonderful bonus. The refrigerator is a good size, and we were able to cook all kinds of things from simple egg breakfasts to seared Ahi dinners. Everything is as advertised in the suite. It is attached to the main house, but has a private entrance and feels completely separate.

The location is great, with an easy walk to one of the most beautiful beaches on the island or to town with shopping and dining. We also made trips to the North Shore and Honolulu; nothing felt too far away but you will probably want a car. We really like the pace of life in Kailua as compared to the city, and for being a small town it has everything you could need from local grocery stores to Target and Whole Foods, not to mention some great restaurants and coffee shops. Having all this convenience nearby and still waking up to the tropical birds is such a treat!

The best part of the stay are the hosts though. Sally is welcoming and thoughtful, and very easy to communicate with both before and during your stay. She makes herself readily available to you while still giving you the privacy you want and expect on your vacation. If you like dogs, then Dante is sure to become a fast friend and you will look forward to his daily rounds.

If you are looking for a relaxing Hawaiian vacation on Oahu, look no further than Tropical Hale.
