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
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. 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!

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!

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!
This rental is amazing! House is stocked with everything you could possibly need! Very clean and beautiful. We had 6 people staying in the house and there was easily room for 9 people..Tons of space! Pool and hot tub are amazing and a quick 4 minute walk to one of the best beaches on Oahu! Wouldn't hesitate to rent this place again! Thank you Julie for an amazing stay!
Wonderful house in a lovely neighbourhood in Kailua. Julie was nothing but helpful and welcoming from start to finish and a pleasure to deal with. Our kids loved the pool and spa, and the home itself is great to stay in. So well set up - from the kitchen to the beach equipment.
We stayed with our 3 children and my husbands mother for 7 nights then went to Waikiki for 2 nights - should have stayed in Kailua longer!!
Mahalo to Julie for being a welcoming, responsive host and renting us her clean, comfortable, & well-appointed home for our recent family trip to Oahu. Everything our family of 7 (5 adults, 2 grandchildren) needed was available from enough boogie boards and beach equipment for everyone to towels and seating. The well equipped kitchen had everything you might want except food which was available from grocery stores just a short drive away. We also used both the pool and hot tub each day to relax after a busy day. The game room had more things to do than we had time to enjoy.
With sandy bottomed Kailua Beach being a short walk away, we were able to enjoy the beach in the morning or evening and still have time to visit the normal tourist sites we scheduled each day. Kailua Town is on the windward side of the mountain range and is about an easy 30 minute drive from Honolulu & its attractions. Speed limits range from 25 to 35 for most of the roads on Oahu except for the interstates which are 45-55 so while the time is higher, the distances aren't so far. From Kailua to Turtle Bay on the North Shore for golf was about 31 miles but took an hour to get there. Pick up a guide book from the car rental agency which has maps of each area of Oahu (we used Hertz's). From Kailua you can go north to the North Shore (garlic shrimp places on the way - messy but great), south past several beaches like Hanauma Bay to eventually Waikiki (scenic drive) or over the mountain (3 Highways - try them all - Nu'uanu Pali Lookout is a must) to the Honolulu area.
In summary, we thoroughly enjoyed staying at Julie's home in Kailua and would recommend it to anyone looking for a relaxing, quiet location easily accessible to the major areas of Oahu. If you want the noise & chaos of Waikiki, this isn't the place for you. If, like us, you merely want to see Waikiki, then stay at Julie's in Kailua and take a drive there - just don't do so on the weekend as parking is virtually impossible to find.
