The accomondation is in a nice neighborhood. Margrete provides beach towls and all other stuffs you need for the beach. We find a wrlcome basket and also water for the firdt day. Margrete left the day after we arrived, but she took care tthat we have a contact person. Everything is very clean and in good shape. The rooms could have more daylight. The posdibility to wash and dry was great. We had a good time.

We loved staying here! Kailua was definitely a good choice of area to stay in. It was small and chill, but still had plenty of convenient shopping nearby. It was also a great location for easily getting to nearby beaches and other activities around the island. We were really impressed by Marge's thoughtfulness and attention to detail in getting the cottage ready for us. She had snacks and drinks ready for us when we arrived as well as many cooking essentials stocked. The beach supplies available to us were awesome and very extensive. We loved having a washer and dryer as well as a line to dry our beach towels and swim suits on. The main bedroom was small, but we used the second bedroom for our luggage with no problem. I was a bit concerned that the bedroom would get too hot to sleep in with only the windows open, but it was never an issue (and each bedroom had a window A/C just in case). The cottage was nicely clean and we never saw any bugs or critters inside. Everything was cozy and convenient and we loved our stay! We would definitely come here again!

This place was perfect for me and my sister while staying in Kailua. It is clean and quite. Close to beaches, hikes, and restaurants (by car). Marge was friendly and accessible. She has a binder full of tips and suggestions that we found helpful.

What a hidden gem! We had the most amazing time at Marge's place. We felt like we were at our own home. Anything and everything you may need is either included or just a trip down the street. The beaches are close, the highways are near and there are lots of shops and great places to eat 5-10 minutes away. Marge had some great suggestions on where or where not to go and was always so helpful. We will definitely be back and hope to stay here again. What you see is exactly what you get and it's way better than any hotel. =)
