I stayed for three days and wish that it was much longer! The studio was much better than I expected. This was my first time using Airbnb and my first trip to Oahu so my expectations were somewhat vague. This place was so much nicer than I could have imagined. The studio itself was perfect. More than ample space and meticulously clean! Cara has thought of absolutely everything that you might need and all very organized and clean! From the incredible shower to the relaxing outside space I can't think of one thing that I wasn't more than my expectations. With your own entrance the space is very private. Lastly, the location is perfect. The most beautiful beach is about a 2 minute walk and downtown Kailua (that has absolutely everything that you might need) is about a 10 minute walk. This place truly is a little piece of heaven!!!!!!!
Cottage was exactly as pictured. Smartly decorated with all the necessities and more! The neighorhood is quiet and serene, and just a beautiful place. This is definitely an excellent choice when making your vacation plans to Oahu, Kailua. The best attribute of this listing are the owners...they are so kind and are happy to answer any questions regarding the property, the area, give directions or provide restaurant recommendations. They exude the 'Aloha' spirit. Looking forward to my next stay. I'm just hoping it will be available.
This was our second stay at Cara's, we loved it so much we had to come back. Perfect location, one block from the beach, 10 min walk to the town. Place is specious, private, clean and very well equipped. Cara is sweet and very welcoming host, easy to reach. I can't say enough good things about her and the place. We had wonderful stay.
This was my first booking on Airbnb so I was skeptical but the place was wonderful just as described. The worst part of this place was the day we had to leave. It is only a few minutes walking distance to the beach and only a short 10 minute drive to one of the most famous beaches in the world. The town has everything you need, groceries, shopping, even a Starbucks. If I have the chance to visit Hawaii again this place would be on the top of my list to stay at. Would definitely recommend.
We have enjoyed our stay very much at Kailua Beach Cottage Gateway. The place is very clean, private and comfortable. We found everything we needed in the cottage. I loved cotton bedding and towels. Induction cooking top was great for cooking. The shower is very comfortable and spacious. The location is excellent, very close to the beach and to town. Hosts were very helpful and very nice. I also enjoyed the private spacious garden, which is very well kept. The wagon was a lot of fun for the baby. This is the place I would like to stay on my return visits.
This private studio was exactly as advertised. Plenty of space, nice little garden area with seating. Great to relax during the evenings. A few minutes walk from the beach in a nice quiet area. However a 15 minute walk puts you in the middle of Kailua town which has almost everything you could need. All in all, it’s a great cottage that I would definitely recommend and hopefully I will make it back there one day!
A wonderful place with wonderful host!
It was a please staying at Cara and Bryan place. Everything as described! Very close to the beach and town. Very clean!
Great location, family friendly area, walking distance to beautiful beach! I would highly recommend it to anyone visiting the area.
Hi I'm Cara. I'm a local girl born and raised in Hawaii. I live in Kailua, along with my husband Bryan and our pet dog named Marley. Our 2 children also live here, but being young adults they are either working or out with friends. Our home is just 1 block from beautiful Kailua beach. One of my favorite things to do, is to watch the sunrise. There is something about waiting for the sun to come up over the horizon with the colors in the sky changing, while dusk turns to dawn, it is truly spiritual. I would love to share this experience with you and your family.
I also enjoy cooking, trying out new recipes and dining out. Follow me on Instagram @cara_loves_life or on (website hidden).
