About the property

Kapakai Cottage is a island style Apartment with 2 Bedrooms, 1 full Bathroom with jacuzzi tub, new full kitchen.

Amazing Mountain Views in a Lush and Peaceful Setting

If you appreciate lush and green surroundings you have come to the right place in an exclusive Kailua neighborhood.

Kapakai Cottage is a newly renovated modern island style apartment on the second story of our home in Kailua. There are beautiful mountain views all around. The balcony, bedrooms and living room overlook the lush Koolau mountains.

The apartment is located in a quiet neighborhood, about a five-minute drive from Kailua town and beautiful Kailua/Lanikai beaches.

There is a king size bed in the master bedroom and a queen size bed in the second bedroom. We also offer a pack'n play and portable crib for a infant.

The bath has an entry to both the living room and the bedroom.

The kitchen is fully equipped with a cooktop stove, oven, refrigerator, and microwave. The bath has a jacuzzi tub, which can also be used as a shower.

Wireless access, cable TV, and DVD/VCR, are also provided.

The Apartment provides central air conditioning that will cool the entire apartment, both bedrooms and the living/kitchen area if needed.

There is plenty of ventilation with ceiling fans in both bedrooms and in the living room in case you prefer to open the windows.

There are beach accessories and bicycles available for your use at no additional charge. The bicycles are "beach" bicycles, so they are a little rusty and used but they will get you around Kailua town and to the beach.

Located about 20 minutes from Honolulu, Waikiki and Hanuama Bay and Pearl Harbor. This property is very well situated not far from the scenic routes taking you to the North and South Shores where you can enjoy the magnificent Hawaiian coastline.

Kailua is a very charming windward beach town where you will find the residents most pleasant and helpful. Kailua offers many restaurants and shops. Golf courses, tennis and water sports such as windsurfing, para-sailing and kayaking. On the windward side you can also enjoy a day at Sea Life Park, encounters with animals at Kualoa Ranch and some amazing hiking.

Well appointed and clean. The owners are friendly, helpful and available.

  • 4 of 5

The location allows quick access (within ten minutes) to Kailua and Lanikai. Highways are very close. This was a peaceful and comfortable place. Snorkel gear, chairs and other beach items are there for your use. A slight negative is the lack of A/C, but box fans were very helpful. Some great mountain views.

A lovely 2 bedroom apartment - with issues

  • 2 of 5

Kapakai Cottage is a lovely second floor 2-bedroom apartment with (nearly) everything you need for a perfect vacation. The full kitchen is great and many extras were thoughtfully supplied, such as DVDs and games. The apartment is very conveniently located close to a Safeway, various good kine eats (check out the Food Company and the nearby Vietnamese Noodle place) and not far from the beach (with bicycles included). There are ceiling fans but no air-conditioning (which is common in Kailua), which wasn’t a problem in March, but you might need to open windows (see below). A dishwasher and/or washing machine would have been nice, but otherwise the furnishings were complete. Please note it has a steep staircase, so this would not be appropriate for someone who needs accessibility.

Noise-sensitive and chemical-sensitive people, however, might not want to stay here. In this part of Kailua, the homes were built very close together (houses in Hawaii are generally spaced pretty close), so you hear lots of neighborhood noise. Since you have to leave windows open to cool off, the sounds come tumbling in. So if the kids next door enjoying their pool cause your teeth to grind, or the sound effects of the movie being played downstairs (and next door, and in the back), or the many neighboring dogs barking at the least sound, cause you to lose sleep, then you may wish to consider staying somewhere else or bring earplugs (that worked for my wife).

Hawaii is also the land of bugs – you have a choice: bugs and the lizards that eat them, or pesticides. Someone nearby (apparently not the owners of the cottage itself) laid heavy on the pesticides just before we got there. It didn’t bother me, but my wife developed a rash. We’d rather have the bugs.

We want to mention a highly unpleasant interaction with the cleaners. We were granted an extra hour to check out, but no one informed the cleaners. They burst in and were exceedingly nasty to my wife and me. There is much more to the story, but we hope that the cleaners no longer work there. VRBO has apologized and told us that the cleaners will be replaced

Our two-star rating is heavily influenced by the noise, the smell and mostly the poor experience on our last day. If you are not bothered by noise, prefer pesticide to bugs and have faith that the cleaners have been replaced, then, by all means, enjoy this lovely apartment.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your stay and for bringing this to our attention. We apologize for any inconveniences you experienced. Our neighbors are generally very respectful and noise is not usually an issue. I'm not sure about the pesticide issue, as we did not use any pesticides in the apartment or the surrounding yard before your arrival. We also sincerely apologize for your experience with the cleaners. As we mentioned, the cleaners have been replaced and we are confident that this will not happen again. We take seriously the needs of our guests and make every effort to provide a peaceful and restful stay.

Perfect Home

  • 5 of 5

The vacation rental was perfect home for four. Excellent location and a beautiful home. We greatly appreciated the beach gear that was provided such as towels, snorkel gear, mats, shovel and bucket for the kids, small cooler etc. Definitely made life easy for us to hop over to the beach. The home was decorated beautifully just like the pictures. Nice big kitchen if you want to cook, but hey I was on vacation... no cooking for me! We were glad that we selected this home, which was calm and relaxing side of Hawaii versus the hustle and bustle of the over crowded city of Honolulu. My favorite part of this home was that it had wonderful trade winds coming through the windows, which I slept like a baby at night! The home is in a great location... a couple minutes to the beach or a couple of minutes to the main highway, which was perfect if you want to drive around the island. We stayed for a week, but wished we stayed longer. I definitely will be back! Btw, the owners were really nice. We would sometimes see the husband and chit chat for a few minutes, a wonderful standup guy. Nice to meet great people during our travels!

Beautiful place

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 4 and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Kapakai Cottage. The owner was so friendly and made us feel very welcome. The kitchen is very well equipped and there were lots of beach towels, snorkel gear and beach umbrella that we could borrow. It was an excellent stay.
