About Julie

I've lived in Hawaii since 1976. I have always lived on the Diamond Head side of the island.

In 2007, I was invited to dinner at my friend Ken's home in Kailua.

I looked forward to a leisurely drive through the Koolau mountain range, towering some 3150 feet in some areas above the valley floor, to Kailua....in 'the country.' No matter how many times I make this drive, I am struck by the diversity of the island and the breathtaking view when you emerge from the tunnels in the mountains and see the view of the ocean and northeast side of the island. I drove through the little town of Kailua and turned down a long driveway framed by lush Hawaiian plantings. I immediately felt the privacy of the property.

My first impression as I walked into the large entry room was the relaxing feeling of this lovely, open Hawaiian home. As I was shown around the home and property I remember remarking to Ken the house had a calming and peaceful presence.

The first night I spent in the home, with the ceiling fans slowly turning and the windows open, the sound of the ocean lulled me to sleep. I awoke to the tropical birds singing and was struck by the quietness of this side of the island and the neighborhood.

Julie purchased this house in 2011

Why Julie chose Kailua

Three years later, in April of 2011, I had the opportunity to buy the home. I love that the home has so many private areas, where people can spend time alone but be together on one property...out by the pool or in the spa, sitting in the garden area, relaxing in a bedroom with the windows open and the fan slowly turning or with the air conditioning cooling the room, relaxing in the large entry room while reading on the day bed, cooking in the large kitchen, or relaxing in the beautiful living room on the Hawaiian Punee (day bed) enjoying the beautiful Hawaiian gardens through the large windows. It is the perfect Hawaiian open air style home for multi generational families who are meeting to enjoy a vacation in 'paradise.' Imagine all this plus a beautiful white sandy beach with azure colored water only a 3-5 minute walk away! I enjoy sharing my home with my guests who are visiting the beautiful Hawaiian Islands!

Excellent Holiday home for the whole family

  • 5 of 5

Excellent Holiday home for the whole family. Exactly as specified. A spacious home with a large family room and kitchen. The house is nicely furnished and decorated in a traditional Hawaiian style. The well maintained tropical gardens with lights that come on in the evening also add to the experience. Try the outdoor jacuzzi in the evening and enjoy the garden views and the stars.

Julie, the owner is very welcoming and assures you have a pleasant stay. The home is certainly kids friendly. We were traveling with a 1 year old and a 3 year old and had no issues at all. They loved the outdoor pool and the large variety of beach and pool toys.

The local beach is only a stone throw away. This local beach is great for swimming (also for the young ones). It is only a 3 minute walk with a nice sand path through local vegetation. There is plenty of snorkeling gear as well as body boards and other beach gear/toys in the house to accommodate for the whole family. There is a pool table and darts board in the play room. A kayak is also available.

Access to the house is via a long driveway with access from a quiet street. Plenty of room for multiple cars and the property is nicely hidden from the road.

There are various shopping centers and a multitude of restaurants in the area. Or get some freshly baked pizzas from the Market Store which is also nearby.

Honolulu/Waikiki is a 30 minute drive by car.

Make sure to also take a drive to the surf beaches on the North Shore for a completely different experience.

We thoroughly enjoyed staying in this beautiful holiday home and would certainly recommend to others. We would consider coming back in the future.

Thank you very much Julie for looking after us and letting us stay at your beautiful holiday home!

Mark, Nat and family

Lovely, spacious accommodations! Just minutes walk to the beach too.

  • 5 of 5

The villa was everything we had hoped it would be. Very quiet, clean, spacious, and accessible. Our family came for our wedding and there was plenty of room for us to gather and celebrate and a quiet, comfortable space for them to retire to when festivities were not occurring. The hot tub and pool were both lovely and there were many spaces to spend leisure time in, allowing full use of the house for our family without feeling crowded. A very short walk to the beach, it was perfect! Thank you Julie for everything. Mahalo nui loa, Edie and Anthony

Fantastic property with everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful spacious home. Great kitchen for those that like to cook. Even had surfboards and snorkel equipment. Our family of 6 had a great time. The place could easily sleep 8. Beach literally 1-2 blocks away. Town of kailua was easy to get around with plentiful parking. Would definitely recommend and come back again.
