Simone (the host) was great, and so was the place. Spacious, clean location (just like the photos), steps from pristine beach -- what more can you ask for? In addition we could use the bikes for the 2 adults, and Simone even went out of her way to help us get settled in with 2 kids with their sleeping arrangements and such.
Overall a great experience, would like to repea it one day:)
The location was fantastic with a very short walk to the beautiful Kailua Beach Park. Our unit was roomy, light, well appointed and the bathroom was spacious. We enjoyed using the bicycles that were provided, but did not have a chance to try out the SUP or kayak. Maybe next time. A great place to vacation.
We had a wonderful time at Simone's place. The apartment is very spacious and clean, the ocean really is just a couple of steps away. Simone and her kids are great hosts and were so friendly and supporting. Driving to "downtown" Kailua with it's shops, restaurants etc. just takes a couple of minutes. We can highly recommend the place and we will certainly be back soon.
We are in our 70's... but active... and found Simone and her family and the rental to be perfect for us. It's a 5 minute or less walk to the beach and within walking distance from a cute market and popular restaurant.
The apartment is open and airy as described. The bedroom and bath are roomy and the living area is full of windows that all open for wonderful breezes. The small kitchenette was all we needed for breakfast and lunch and an occasional dinner in. Simone has lots of ideas about restaurants and things to do in the area. She also has lots of ocean "toys" that are easily carried to the beach.
We had such a good time that we rented for a few weeks next winter before we left for home!
We are very happy with all of the stay.
The room is spacious, clean and calm so we were able to feel like home. So much windows that capture the scenery and the light of outside are very photogenic. Facilities and equipment are in sufficient type and amount, well-maintained. The bedroom faces the road, but the street in front of the house is a dead end. So it was very quiet in the night.
The location of this property, just a short walk to Kailua Beach Park, brought us a wonderful experience. After leaving one day trip visitors, the "particles of air" in Kailua and Lanikai transform totaly. The beach walk in the morning and evening had become in daily routine. Previously, we stayed in the Yosemite Park. We found that only in the early morning and evening after leaving tourists bus, there is different type of serenity. Here we had the same experience.
We enjoyed the full menu of outdoor life.
After 5 km Lanikai area run, went to Maunawiri stream and enjoyed green smoothies of Lanicai Juice on the way home. Lanikai Pillboxes Trail is very popular but we select little longer course going down on the opposite side of the Kalwa Ridge. Sea kayak touring to Popoia Island and Moku Nui Island is small adventure. After that, we were fascinated going to the Lanicai Beach at my own kayak before the way back to Kailua Beach
In Yokohama, we continue to enjoy the memory of the stay.
Simone, thank you very much for your hospitality.
