Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday cabin in Kuulei Tract - Tropical Kailua Beach House

Beautiful! Huge 1-bedroom! Full kitchen,W/D, A/C, parking

Welcome to our Kailua Beach House!

Our gorgeous unit was a long-term rental for 2 years, but is now available again for vacations. We have updated it, repainted it, and it looks beautiful.

Large 1-bedroom stand-alone “cottage”: This 600 sq ft unit has its own separate entrance (we live in a house behind the rental). There are no shared walls, and there is a fence between the rental and our house – you will have more privacy here that in other “attached” rentals. The bedroom is large (160 sq ft), and the living room, kitchen, & eating areas are super roomy. The roomy trade-off is that the bathroom is small (no tub – shower only).

Excellent Location! We are located less than 2 blocks down the road from Kailua Beach, and also just a few blocks to the main ‘Kailua Town’ with restaurants, shops, & stores – there is no need to drive to the beach, or to dinner. For those of you who know about Kailua and want to rent here, you will love our location! For those of you who have not stayed in Kailua before: Kailua is a small town (40,000 population) right across the island from Honolulu. The beach here is amazing – Google it! – it is about 2.5 miles long, with year-round gentle, warm, clear waters, and soft white sandy beaches. This is the town and beach where the President and his family stay over Christmas. It is an awesome tourist town for people who prefer to have a more relaxing, quieter Hawaiian vacation. But, if you want to hit the shopping and nightlife of Waikiki, it is only a 20-30 minute drive over to Honolulu.

Full kitchen! We have a full kitchen, including a dishwasher, Keurig coffee maker, microwave, place settings for 8, and all the usual kitchen utensils and tools. There is also a nice stainless steel propane BBQ outside for burgers, grilled fish, kabobs, or whatever you’d like. Most 1-bedroom rentals have only a hot plate and a sink, so this is a nice addition.

Parking: The unit has 1 off-street parking spot in front of the rental, so your car will not have to be on the side of the road.

Sleeping for 2-4: Very comfortable, new, pillow-top King Serta Perfect-Sleeper bed in the bedroom, with additional sleeping for 2 on the 2 fold-up portable twin mattresses (which are more appropriate for school-aged children than adults).

Bathroom with shower only (no bathtub), but freshly painted & updated. Includes hairdryer, and comfy plush towels.

Beach Stuff! We have 3 boogie boards, folding beach chairs, a small cooler, & several beach towels for our renters to use. If you want to try paddle boarding or kayaking (a must for Kailua vacationers!), then the best beachside rental place in town is right nearby.

WiFi and Cable TV: Yep, we have both at the unit.

Ambiance & General Info: Our rental is in a neighborhood, and we live on the property as well. THIS IS A NO-SMOKING PROPERTY. The nights are quiet, and since this is a residential neighborhood, it is not a place for loud gatherings or late parties.

Welcome to our beach house! We would love to have you come stay with us!

Absolutely perfect location! Short and easy walk to beach, restaurants and stores. Everything you need to relax and enjoy Kailua..we loved grilling out and dining al fresco. We stayed here while transitioning to Hawaii with our 2 toddlers. Plenty of space and everything we needed for a family of four including washer and dryer. Rob and Bonnie have made this a great spot for a romantic getaway or an adventure with your family. We will definitely recommend to family and friends who come to visit!

Nice location, easy walking distance to beach and town.

  • 4 of 5

Well kept cottage house was separated by a fence from the main house, never saw the owners throughout the week but very friendly and easy to communicate with through email. Fully stocked kitchen and nice bedroom/bathroom. Internet was slow but otherwise a great rental.

Exactly as described!

  • 4 of 5

My boyfriend and I stayed here for the month of August, and the first thing to say is that the property was exactly the way it is described on this website. It's two blocks from the beach and 3/4-ish blocks from the center of town, which makes everything super accessible (even without a car) and was really nice since we only had one car and my boyfriend needed it most days for work. The actual house is also pretty great, a nice size for a couple. We don't have any children and didn't have any overnight guests, so I'm not sure if it would be great for more than two adults, but it was definitely right for us! The washer/dryer was also a Huge plus, if only because we didn't have to deal with wet beach clothes/towels for long.

Bonny and Rob are also super nice: they made the whole renting process extremely easy, from my first inquiry in April all the way through the end of our stay, and they promptly processed my refund for the security deposit! I really liked their willingness to be helpful: my boyfriend is stationed on the island, so we've done a lot of the interesting tourist things before, but Bonny and Rob made it very clear from day 1 that they were around and/or available by phone to give suggestions about things to do and answer any questions we had!

The only downside was that the lack of A/C outside of the bedroom made it a bit difficult to use the kitchen. For the most part, the trade winds kept the house comfortably cool and the A/C window unit in the bedroom made it easy to sleep, but given the layout of the kitchen, the whole place heats up as soon as you turn on the stove. I chose the place because I'm a big cooker and it was one of the few houses I could find in the area with a full kitchen, but I ultimately didn't get as much use out of it as I would've liked (I made up for it by grilling a ton). The internet can also get a little spotty outside of the kitchen sometimes (not sure where the router is located), but it's really only a problem if you want to stream Netflix or something.

Other people have complained about noise from the road— that wasn't a problem for us at all. I barely noticed it, and I spent way more time at the house working than I imagine most people on vacation do. I also can't stress enough how perfect the location is (walking distance from Everything), and how accurate the description is. Read it, and you'll absolutely know what you're getting! I'd stay here again.

Bonnie and Rob’s place is absolutely wonderful! I would without question recommend this place to all

  • 5 of 5

First off, the location is perfect! The rental is within close walking distance to Kailua Beach as well as to a ton of shops and restaurants nearby. It’s also near a great public park.

The rental is roomy and very clean and bug-free. It has everything you would need: full equipped kitchen, TV with cable, wifi, parking spot, washer/dryer, beach chairs, mats, and towels, boogie boards, you name it. And there’s A/C in the bedroom, plus ample breeze comes through the windows in the rest of the place to keep it cool. The bed is king-size and the living room couch is very comfortable. Bathroom shower has great water pressure. Honestly, no complaints for this amazing place!

As hosts, Bonnie and Rob were incredibly kind and truly cared that we enjoyed our stay. Bonnie always responded immediately to my texts and was very accommodating and helpful when I had questions. They helped to make our Hawaii vacation one of the best vacations we’ve ever had. Thanks!

Convenient and Cozy Beach Spot

  • 5 of 5

Bonny has made the unit off her house a home with all the amenities you'll need. My significant other and I stayed in the rental until we could transition to a more permanent house. We moved to Hawaii for work, but everyday I got off work it was like being on vacation. Walkable distance from the beach, farmers markets, restaurants and trails. Great people and good neighborhood.

Great vacation rental!

  • 5 of 5

Bonnie and Rob were fantastic hosts who have thought of all the little details you don't always see in vacation rentals. There was everything you could need for the beach (chairs, beach mats, umbrella, boogie boards, cooler), plus things like ice packs for the cooler, extra sunscreen etc. The bedroom was bright and inviting, tons of channels on the tv, a great washer/dryer and a parking spot. The rental is walking distance to both town and beautiful Kailua beach (though we still drove as it is a bit of a distance with a bunch of gear). There's a wonderful welcome book with lots of information for guests. The rental is on a somewhat busy road and can be a little noisy at night, but it's easily drowned out with the A/C. The full kitchen was a great feature. Only item of note for those paying in another currency - there is a damage deposit and when it's refunded you get dinged by the bank with the exchange rate (in addition to any changes in the rate).
