My boyfriend and I loved this Kailua Beach cottage! It was very cute, clean and had everything we needed to make our stay enjoyable. There was even a nice little welcome basket with coffee and chocolates waiting for us when we arrived! We also made very good use of the beach equipment that was provided. We'd definitely love to stay here again next time we're in Kailua!
Mahalo nui loa Cara for beeing such a wonderful host. We enjoyed our stay in Kailua very much. The Cottage was clean and spacy, well equipped with everything we needed. The beach is just a walk across the street, couldn't be better. Cara lives next to the cottage and is very helpful and kind.
Great place for a getaway! The hosts made sure everything was perfect... can't wait to go back.
We had a lovely stay at the Kailua Beach Cottage Getaway. It really was like a home away from home. Everything you could possibly need was made available. I loved the attention to detail. I loved that we could do laundry, grill and cook. Of course, the location is perfect! We have stayed very close to here now 3 times because we love the "private" access to Kailua beach, probably THE BEST beach in Oahu! We were traveling with two kids and it was so SO nice to stay in Cara's cottage, where we could really relax and enjoy the peaceful surroundings. The cottage was immaculately clean and comfortable. It was easy to communicate with Cara and coordinate our arrival. I can't say enough nice things! We had a great time. Thanks, Cara and Bryan!
Kailua cottage was the perfect vacation rental for us. It was truly the home away from home. Cara had it stocked with everything that we needed, from toiletries to kitchen gadgets to beach accessories complete with a cooler and quality wagon to tote it all.
We were a party of three--my wife, our 17 month old and I. The beach was 5 min walk away, and we towed the little red wagon with us since it would have been nearly impossible to carry all that we needed especially with a toddler.
Cara even had a generous stock of island treats for us which we slowly enjoyed throughout our stay. She even dropped off two super sweet and delicious mangos on the porch for us--a welcoming surprise after a long day out in the sun.
Our host, the place and the experience was better than we could have hoped for!!! Really clean, really close to the beach and a perfect holiday!!!
Just a hop, skip, and a stroll to the beach from Cara's very clean and comfy place.
It has a real local feel and suited us perfectly for a few key days in Kailua!
About the Host, Cara
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.
Come and experience true Hawaiian hospitality, as a native Hawaiian I was raised with the Aloha Spirit. We were taught to put others first, be considerate and always share.
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 Facebook.
