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 '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

Feels like home

  • 5 of 5

So glad we found Julie's home available for our first time on the island. The house is beautiful inside and out. Julie pays close attention to detail. She has everything thought out for what you might need for your stay. We loved the pool table in the game room at night including the jacuzzi. Washer and dryer was a bonus as my husband and I just came in from a cruise. Her yard is like a tropical oasis and is well maintained. She is easy to get in contact with and is quick to reply. If you get a chance to stay at Julie's home just pack your clothes, she's got everything you might need including snorkel/beach gear for the whole family. She even had baby wipes, aloe gel, and bug repellent which we didn't have to use but the gesture was appreciated. The home is located about 30 minutes from the airport/Waikiki area. There is a beautiful beach nearby that you can easily walk to. Love this home and love Julie!

Amazing home and perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

Julie was at the house when we arrived to great us and to go over the home. This house is much more than advertised. The home was immaculate, decorated very nicely and was stocked with anything we needed and more. The hot tub and pool were crystal clear and the grounds around the home are very well maintained. Julie had a bowl of fresh fruit and Hawaiian coffee for us when we arrived. The beautiful beach is literally a 3 minute walk from the home. One of the teenagers that were with us loved the extra little room away from the main house and made that his "own space". It was nice to have beach chairs, boogie boards, beach umbrellas and snorkel gear available to use. If we ever have the chance to go back to Hawaii, we certainly would try to rent this house again. I recommend this home to anyone who wants to be able to relax in their own pool/hot tub and BBQ at night and spend the days at the near by beach.

Julie was an excellent host, very accommodating and responsive!

  • 5 of 5

Kailua is a great small town with a beautiful and comfortable beach. The house was very nice and was well equipped. The neighboring houses were closer than we anticipated but the privacy fence secluded the property adequately.

Home away from Home

  • 5 of 5

We visited from Illinois in January of 2017. We had an excellent stay in this Kailua home; it was the perfect base for our first Hawaiian visit. Julie had the house ready for us on check in and it had everything we needed; we bought a week's worth of groceries and we were set! We are a family of four and the house allowed us to spread out and enjoy some personal down time. We found the house to be as advertised and would stay again on future vacations to Hawaii. Julie was an excellent host!

Thank you very much!

Great house for our family to enjoy! Open floor plan felt spacious. Grounds are lush

  • 4 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed the pool, hot tub & BBQ area. The separate bldg with a pool table & game area was an added benefit when it rained. Short walk to the beach was fun!
