About William Page

We are a third generation kama'aina family with one of the loveliest rentals you'll find anywhere. We are on the other side of the Island of Oahu, Hawaii. Away from Honolulu. Away from Waikiki. Away from the rest of the world.

Kailua Guesthouse has two terrific rentals 3 blocks from Kailua Beach in a lovely neighborhood in the nicest place on earth. You can hear the surf at night.

Looking for a great place to stay away from Waikiki? Dr. Beach found Kailua Beach ten years ago and ranked it America's Best Beach in 1998. Now it's yours. It's right next to Lanikai Beach, named America's Best Beach in 1996. Just 15 miles from Waikiki and Honolulu but light-years away.

Kailua Guesthouse Palm Cabana - Walk to Kailua Beach
average rating of 5.0 based on 3 reviews

Great lodging option for the windward side.

  • 5 of 5

Quiet, clean and well equipped. Easy walk to Kailua beach, and equally easy walk to downtown. It was everything that we hoped for. Thank you, Mr. Page.

Better than we could imagine from the description

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at Kailua Guesthouse. The location is central to everything you need. We walked to restaurants, shopping, Kailua beach. There are two guesthouses on the property, totally separate from the main house. We stayed at Palm Cabana. Will, the owner showed us everything we needed to know about the property and made excellent recommendations for things to do, restaurants, grocery stores, shopping. The units are well equipped for a good time, lots of good movies, flat screen TV, comfortable bed, spacious private lanai. We enjoyed magnificent sunrises, breakfasts, and sunsets with amazing views of the mountains, tropical trees, birds, and smell of the plumeria from the lanai. Our favorite restaurants are: Zia's, Teddy's bigger Burgers, Lucy's, Boots and Kimo's (breakfast), Crepes O Ka Noi. Favorite beaches were Kailua, nearby Lanikai and Hanauma Bay. Will provided suggestions for hikes-- We hiked to Maunawili Falls and Lanikai Ridge (WW II pillboxes overlooking the Bay). The descriptions given are accurate as far as they go, but so much more. The photos are accurate but inadequate to get overall scope. We were pleasantly surprised by the size of the unit, the bathroom, the large lanai, the free laundry facility, the beach toys and chairs. Little touches like flashlights, dish soap, paper towels, shoe horn, so many little things you don't think about, made the visit trouble-free and pleasant. The property is well maintained and clean. Will lives on site and was especially helpful if we had questions. We felt secure and safe at all times. I would highly recommend this town and in particular, this property for a wonderful time on Oahu. We have stayed in Honolulu before and much preferred the island pace and experience at Kailua Guesthouse.
