Great location, great size, and a parking space. Wonderful and responsive owners.
Thank you for your review, Kristine. We hope you can return!
Paradise in Kailua
Easy process. Affordable. Perfect for two adults and two teenagers. Loved having a 2nd full bath and outdoor shower. Came with lots of amenities: washer/drawer, snorkel gear but only for one; plenty of beach towels; small cooler for use; games. Upstairs tv did not work. Would have been nice if it did but we were fine. Would have loved A/C but understand not many places do.
We are pleased that you and your grandkids enjoyed your stay. Please come again!

We had an absolutely wonderful stay. The cottage is beyond perfect! Perfect amenities, perfect location, perfect everything. The beach access is the best and then the pool an extra bonus. We will definitely come back!
Thank you, Mary. Please do return!
Great home in great location
This was just what we were looking for - a small home in a residential community which could function as either a base to return to after touring or else a place to relax in itself. We were met by the owner's daughter who showed us around, helped us settle in, and gave us her number in case we needed anything. The house was clean and comfortable with plenty of towels, bedding, laundry, drying line, off street parking, a pool, a functional kitchen, and WiFi. It can comfortably house a family of 4 or even 5. One of the best beaches on the island is a stone's throw away (5 min walk) and you can hear the waves at night when you open the windows. There is a popular local convenience store with a great deli and gelato just around the corner, and just beyond that is a large, grassy, city park attached to the beach with public restrooms and a running/bike path. There are boat rentals and we saw dragon boat racers, kayakers, parasailers, and windsurfers. For people who like to walk/hike, it is a 20 minute walk to the beginning of the pill box trail, a moderate climb up the mountain with stunning views of the ocean and the town. We were never bothered by mosquitoes. Plenty of shopping - groceries, drugstores, clothing, restaurants, scuba/surf/swim shops, movie theatre, and a great locally owned used book store. The Thursday morning farmers market had the best produce I've seen on the island. The only downsides were no dishwasher, no A/C (but in April, with the breezes, screen windows, and ceiling fans, we were comfortable and did not notice), some noise issues (commuting traffic on the road a half block away and a couple of late night weekend parties). A note about driving - the drivers were courteous and stopped for pedestrians or to let you make a left hand turn, but the roads are crowded, slow, and labyrinthine. Parking is limited and we often used metered street parking in town. In retrospect, we should have rented bikes - the town isn't that big and there were walking/biking lanes everywhere with plenty of people using them. Overall, a fabulous experience, a great rental, considerate hosts, and I hope we get a chance to come back.
Thank you for the kind words in your review. We are sorry that we did not get to meet you, but happy that you enjoyed your stay. You would be welcome again any time at Beachside in Paradise!

The absolute best Home-Away-from-home.
My husband and I had the pleasure of staying at Dick & Wanda’s lovely cottage for 9 weeks (Jan 5 - Mar 10, 2019). Not only was the accommodations perfect, the owners were so incredibly helpful and friendly. We had a number of family members visit us over the 9 weeks (as you would expect when you rent a cottage in Paradise) and when our infant Granddaughter stayed with us, Dick and Wanda made a portable crib available for us to use. Everyone was comfortable.
The cottage is in the perfect location. It is next to the most spectacular bay / beach; it is 2 minutes walk to a fabulous local market / convenience store; 2 minutes walk to adventure rentals (bikes, kayaks, paddle boards, etc). You can walk to the Pill Box hike (well worth the effort), walk to Lanikai Beach (if you are looking for a change in scenario), walk to Kailua town centre where you will find multiple choices of shopping & dining - not to mention you are a 5 minute walk from a fabulous Oahu landmark restaurant - Buzz’s steakhouse. So if you don’t have a car, you can enjoy a great deal of what Kailua has to offer.
Given we were there for a longer stay, we required a car to manage picking up guests and shopping for large amounts of groceries and beverages. The car also allowed us to visit many of the beautiful sights within 20 - 45 minutes drive from the cottage: Makipuu lighthouse, Koko roach beach (near the blow hole), diamond head, Waikiki, Pearl Harbour, and much more. Our favourite day trip was to Haleiwa and the Northshore - a must for any Oahu visitor.
Suffice to say you cannot go wrong with this beach house rental. Absolute paradise.
Thank you, Linda, for your response and for adding so many details about the property, the area, and Oahu. It was our pleasure to get to know you and your family. We sincerely hope that you will return for another enjoyable stay in Paradise!
