Kailua Getaway

  • 5 of 5

It was nice for a change for the VRBO to be nicer than expected. The pictures don't do Meg and Rob's vacation home justice. My husband and I spent a week here with our 6 month old baby daughter. Everything was very clean, fresh and cozy. The bed and linens were very comfortable. There is a walk-in closet in the bedroom which was great to store all of our luggage. All areas are very spacious. We did have an issue with the ceiling fan in the main room however it was replaced the next day and the owners were very apologetic for the inconvenience. There is a Safeway and a Starbucks a block away however if you want to venture down town or to the beach it is about a 5 minute drive. If you come to Kailua and stay here you must check out Whole Foods. When we didn't feel like going out for dinner we picked up groceries from Whole Foods and used the BBQ on the private deck. We would highly recommend this VRBO as it offers a lot of value for the price.

Very nice. Perfect for a couple and week or longer stay.

  • 5 of 5

Very crisp, clean and new. Upstairs to catch the breeze and island view. Walking distance to groceries, coffee and restaurants. Beach chairs and small coolers were a nice bonus for our daily travels. Hope we have the chance to visit again.

Great Property

Beautiful apartment in a great location. Walking distance to grocery store and other conveniences. 5 minute drive to the beach. Convenient location for driving to the rest of the island. We had a wonderful stay here and thoroughly recommend this property.

Loved it

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this place was perfect. The apartment was very clean and well maintained. It’s located very conveniently to town and the beach. The kitchen is well stocked with pots, pans and everything you need to cook. We also thought the layout of the apartment was great and really worked out for my husband and me. It is a studio, but there’s more than enough room and is super cute. We loved everything about it!

Walking distance to shops and short drive to beach.

Travelling from Australia (the land of beautiful beaches), nearby Kailua beach was a fantastic surprise.

Perfect place to stay in Kailua

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful space to find for our first time visit to Oahu. This apartment was very clean, comfortable and very well appointed. Well loved sitting on the lanai and the fact that there were so many windows that provided a lovely cross breeze. We also preferred this side of the island. It was closer to birding places we were interested in going, but far less traffic than the Waikiki side. It was still very easy to go into Honolulu when going against rush hour traffic. Meg and Rob were lovely hosts and offered help when we asked. We would definitely love to stay here again, when we return to Oahu.
