Kailua Beach Park Cottage - 1BR

Holiday home in Kailua, walk to Kailua Beach
Kailua Beach was once again been rated as the best beach in the USA for 2019, by "Dr. Beach." The cottage is directly across the street from Kailua Beach Park and less than two minutes walk to step into the ocean at the beach. A full time vacation rental for more than 30 years. It is a fully legal vacation rental, license TA-073-910-5280-01. The property is tucked away one house back from the road into Lanikai, and described by guests as "a little oasis of quiet and calm."

The cottage is ideal for two people, but can sleep four. It is not recommended for more than two adults plus one or two children max. The bedroom has a queen bed, and the living room has a futon sofa that opens into a double bed with comfortable spring mattress. There is also a Pack-and-Play portable crib for infants. The bathroom has a full tub with shower. The unit is equipped with a wet bar that includes a large sink, full sized frig, microwave, large toaster oven and hot plate, but not a stove top or oven. The hosts have stayed as vacation rental guests across Europe, Asia and the US, and know what features are most important to vacation travelers, with cleanliness being the number one priority. The cottage has just been renovated and is very well maintained.

The rental area is an entire part of a house, very private and with a reserved parking space just by the private entrance. It has its own charcoal BBQ grill and there is shared, large capacity and easy to use wash machine and electric dryer on site.

For security and guest convenience, the unit has self check-in with a "smart" keypad entry system that assigns each group of guests their own unique PIN that expires after check-out.

The area at the Lanikai end of Kailua Beach Park is a quiet local neighborhood comprised mostly of owner occupied homes, some long term rental units and a scattering of vacation rentals - our 1BR Kailua Beach Park Cottage is one of the very few licensed, legal vacation rentals in the area.

We send a lot of Kailua and Oahu information and recommendations to guests a few days before their arrival. We are easy to reach by phone or email, and live only five minutes away, and are always happy to answer additional questions guests might have about the unit, Kailua town, and Oahu in general.

There are two end-to-end parking spaces on the property, and one of them is reserved exclusively for this unit. They are easy to get into and out of, if you know how to parallel park. If you do not know how to parallel park, it is recommended that you do not rent a van or large SUV, but consider a smaller vehicle with good all around visibility.

At the Lanikai end of Kailua Beach Park, between Buzz’s Steak House and the hilltop pillar marking the entrance into Lanikai, there is only one other legal, licensed vacation rental. All of the rest are unlicensed and illegal, and subject to shut down by the Department of Planning and Permitting, with subsequent cancellations of guests’ reservations.
Air-conditioned accommodation at this holiday home offers a safe and a hairdryer. Fridges, microwaves and coffee/tea makers are provided. Bathrooms include a shower.

3/5 Okay

Functional, budget-friendly but no frills
The location of this rental is great and it’s only a short walk to beautiful Kailua beach. We met Bob upon arrival and he was welcoming and also communicated well beforehand. Everyone is different in terms of what they’re looking for in a vacation rental. If you’re looking for a functional and budget friendly place and don’t need extra amenities then this will fit the bill. But still there were some drawbacks, like a lack of good ventilation in the bathroom that led to mold growth, and needing to strip beds and take out trash while paying a cleaning fee. The futon might be comfortable for younger/smaller kids, but isn’t long enough for taller teens like my six footer.

5/5 Excellent

Great trip
You cannot beat this location. You are steps away from one beautiful beach and 1/2 mile walk from another. The unit is small but it has everything you need, and it worked well for our family of four. Bob was extremely responsive and helpful. Would definitely stay here again.

4/5 Good

Quaint Kailua Cottage
I live on island and had rented this place for myself and a friend who was visiting, so I could give her a taste of Kailua town for a couple of nights. Overall this was an excellent property. Quaint, clean, and cozy with perfect beach access and located very close to Kailua town. Bob, the property owner was very detailed and readily available to answer questions. The only major hang-up was the couch/bed. The cushion/mattress was absolutely terrible. It was incredibly uncomfortable to sit on, let alone sleep. The mattress was so bad that we decided to forgo our second night in the cottage and go back to my house, where I had two comfy beds waiting. If you plan on using the couch/bed as a second sleeping option, I’d suggest looking elsewhere. The mattress is not fit for a restful nights sleep.

5/5 Excellent

Wonderful place

5/5 Excellent

Everything was perfect, can’t beat the location and lovely amenities with clear communication. Extremely clean and well cared for property. I’ve stayed on Oahu and this was my favorite.
