I work for my husband's construction company and have been in Hawaii for almost 3 decades. We travel extensively for work and pleasure and know what it is I like and look for when renting 'homes away from home'. I strive for quality, modern, luxurious spaces with accommodating features that enhance a traveler's needs and comfort.
Genette Simpkins purchased this estate in 2014
Being fully remodeled from wall to wall and foundation to the roof, these homes were taken down to the bare shells and upgraded in every aspect. Everything except the exterior 4 walls and original foundation is new.
Kailua is my home and while I have bought, fixed up and sold many properties here and the outer-islands, this property appealed to me because of it's location. I got to design and remodel these homes to my liking with a modern, simplistic and contemporary flair. Needless to say, I will not be selling these homes ever.
It's modern, its chic, its comfortable and contemporary with luxury furnishings and fixtures. No need to drive when one of the world's best beaches is just feet away. Amenities include an outside shower and kayaks to venture to the Mokulua Islands. We will continue to enhance this amazing location where families can gather together in one prime location with plans to add a tropical hot tub area after we install our PV. We stock our homes with supplies, toiletries and condiments that make traveling and the overall enjoyment of our home more convenient and accommodating.
This place has all you need for a relaxing beach house vacation! Spacious, clean, short walk to the beach, comfortable rooms with a/c in each, various beach toys/gear provided, washer/dryer, and full kitchen. It was perfect for our family reunion. The owner, caretaker, and on-site manager were very friendly and quickly responded to any questions. We enjoyed the home and hope to stay here again!
The perfect Golden Wedding Anniversary trip. In celebration of our 50th wedding anniversary my wife and I wanted to find the perfect location to be together as a family with our children and four grandchildren to enjoy Hawaii life with each other. We spent nine wonderful days at the Kailua Beach House. The location is perfect: across the street from Kailua Beach, 5 minute walking distance to Lanikai beach to watch the sunrise and the ability to reach most Oahu attractions in 30-45 minutes.
The Kailua Beach House lived up to all the previous reviews and more. The pictures do not do justice to the personal feel of the sea breeze, sound of the waves crashing the shore, smell of the sea salt in the air and the in person view of the ocean from the Kailua House deck.
Also thank you Louise for your help in making our stay so pleasant.
Genette - Our stay was wonderful - love your style; everything was perfect! Sorry we did not have a chance to visit - maybe next time - for sure! My children and grandchildren will remember this experience for a lifetime; this was something I always wanted to do, and you helped make it so perfect. The children loved walking over to the beach and playing in the water any time morning to night. We all loved the family reunion - sitting around, visiting, in the evening - wow! Thank you, thank you - love you. Nana
We were one of the first people to stay in this house, for our first trip to Hawaii, and I can't enough wonderful things about both the house, and Genette. No detail is overlooked: she had baby gear for our son, which was not only a rarity for us (we had to rent everywhere else we stayed), but it was also in impeccable condition, she provided incredible details in the VRBO app about the surrounding area (restaurants, grocery stores, etc.), and she even provides shampoo and soap! What's more, Genette was immediately responsive to our inquiries, which was made even more impressive because she was in New Zealand during our stay. The house is incredible, and the location (right across from the beach) can't be beat. We only wish we could have stayed longer. All rental homes should be this good, and if there was a way to give this property more than five stars, we would. Thank you Genette for making us feel at home!
Amazing! I cannot recommend Genette and her team enough. What stands out to me was the speed with which they would respond to my MANY questions. And there were a lot. No matter how big or small they answered them all so very quickly. This may seem insignificant, but when organizing a big group it really was a massive help.
Everything was immaculate and top of the line. The beds are SOOOOO wonderful. The kayaks and beach gear were used daily and are such a lovely addition. You will not regret staying at this beautiful home...
I will be back.
Excellent location, super clean, recently updated with all new everything! Best beach in Oahu is steps away. Quiet neighborhood. Close to everything needed! Well equipped with beach gear. Great guidance from Dave for finding local sights, restaurants, and he was always available if needed for anything... But we had all we needed!! Highly recommend. Hope to go back and would definitely stay here again.
Thanks for everything!!
