The Space

Lilikoi cottage is a light and airy 1 bedroom home. It is 1 block from the access to the world famous Kailua beach. The cottage has a private entry, private garden patio, beachy and bright living room, fully equipped kitchen, bbq, wireless internet, tv, and a washer and dryer. The cottage bedroom has a queen sized bed with comfortable linens and the living room has a pull out queen sized sofa bed.

The cottage may also be rented as a two bedroom unit with the addition of our nautical themed Kids bedroom. The bedroom has two twin beds with new linens and is accessed off of the cottage's main living room. This bedroom is available for an additional $60 per night and is recommended for families with two or more children.

Kailua Beach is a 3 mile stretch of beautiful sandy beach. There are small waves that are a blast to play in for all ages. We provide boogie boards, beach chairs, snorkeling equipment and bikes. We also have surfboards for those who are so inclined. The Cottage is fully equipped for your short or long stay on Oahu so feel free to pack light.

We are extremely child friendly, we have a 6 year old son and a 4 year old daughter. Our children often play on the property with the other kids who are here on vacation, we have lots of toys, bikes and scooters that your children are welcome to borrow and play with.

Kailua is a quiet neighborhood with a great town center. We are about a mile from Kailua town. There has great shopping and great places to eat. We have 2 farmer's markets on Thursday, they are a great place to try local treats.

We hope that you choose to vacation in beautiful Kailua, it is a world away from the hustle and bustle of Waikiki!

  • Loved it! Perfect location! We brought our 16 month old son and had a great time. Very clean and comfortable. Very private. This is a great place in a great neighborhood for a family!

  • What a wonderful experience at the Lilikoi cottage! A perfect way to enjoy true island life in a beautiful neighborhood. Cottage is comfortable and homey. Access to a peaceful low traffic beach and use of snorkel gear, boogie boards, etc. Could not have asked for better or more courteous and helpful hosts. Highly recommend and would stay again!

  • Aloha, read the signage by the gate, and we instantly felt right at home walking into the private cottage separate from the main house. Nestled in the lovely neighborhood of Kailua, the beach was an easy 3-5min walk, and the town (we loved Lanikai Juice, and stocking up from Whole Foods), is a nice little bike or drive away.

    This well-kept property is filled with natural light and air, equipped with everything you need to have a beautiful stay-cation; enough hooks and hangers for the wet clothes, complete kitchen amenities, comfortable lanai, and wonderful and spacious bedrooms.

    This place made Hawaii feel like a home to us. The only regret we have is that we did not stay longer. I rarely leave reviews, but I sincerely wish to share and encourage future guests that this cherished experience is simply something that no camera can capture.

  • I visited Kailua with four friends from Portland, OR. We had a great time staying at the cottage!

  • We stayed for five days at the Lilikoi cottage. What a gem! It has everything for a beach vacation and is only one block from the beach. There are comfortable beds and a nice kitchen, where we did a lot of cooking. Kailui is a small town, but such a pleasant change from Honolulu and Waikiki. We had a wonderful time. Thanks to Katherine for sharing her place with us.

  • LOVED staying here. Cozy decor - it felt like home as soon I walked through the door. I needed an easy getaway and this was perfect - 2 blocks from the beach, a 5 minute bike ride into town, quiet back patio to relax at the end of the day, and bikes beach mats and chairs for your convenience. I couldn't ask for more. Looking forward to coming back again and again!

  • Mark and I had a fabulous time exploring Oahu from Katherine & Jason's lovely private cottage in Kailua. We cannot recommend this place enough! Thanks for a great stay. Can't wait to return some day.

  • We really enjoyed our stay here. It was exactly how it looked in the pictures. It was very nice to have a little high chair/booster seat and a playpen. We have a 3 year old and a 9 month old. Katherine was so accommodating and very quick to respond to my texts. Having access to beach stuff was so great. The only thing I did to make our stay more comfortable was rewash the dishes but I would most likely do that anywhere I stay. I think Katherine really thought of everything and I don't think I have seen my husband relax so much before. Kailua is such a beautiful place to stay. We will be back.
