About Louise Tower

I work for my husband's construction company and have been in Hawaii for almost 3 decades. We travel extensively for work and pleasure and know what it is I like and look for when renting 'homes away from home'. I strive for quality, modern, luxurious spaces with accommodating features that enhance a traveler's needs and comfort.

Louise Tower purchased this house in 2014

Why Louise Tower chose Kailua

Being fully remodeled from wall to wall and foundation to the roof, these homes were taken down to the bare shells and upgraded in every aspect. Everything except the exterior 4 walls and original foundation is new.

Kailua is my home and while I have bought, fixed up and sold many properties here and the outer-islands, this property appealed to me because of it's location. I got to design and remodel these homes to my liking with a modern, simplistic and contemporary flair. Needless to say, I will not be selling these homes ever.

What makes this house unique

It's modern, its chic, its comfortable and contemporary with luxury furnishings and fixtures. No need to drive when one of the world's best beaches is just feet away. Amenities include an outside shower and kayaks to venture to the Mokulua Islands. We will continue to enhance this amazing location where families can gather together in one prime location with plans to add a tropical hot tub area after we install our PV. We stock our homes with supplies, toiletries and condiments that make traveling and the overall enjoyment of our home more convenient and accommodating.

GREAT Beach house for big group with kids!

  • 5 of 5

Our group (6 adults and 5 kids ages 4-12) raved about this house! The location is steps away from the fantastic Kailua State Beach Park and close to town for many restaurants, shopping, and of course lots of shaved ice. The house is well stocked with all the essentials and the "extras" via kayaks, boogie boards, and beach toys were appreciated by all. The kids LOVED the converted bonus room in the garage as that became their go to hangout spot. Plenty of sleeping room for all in our group and the AC in the bedrooms is fantastic. Main rooms can get a little warm during the day, but open up the doors and windows and enjoy the ocean breeze. The adults spent a lot of time enjoying our evening cocktails on the balcony and enjoying the view. Louise is VERY responsive and even though we had a small hiccup at check-in, she was all over it and remedied in 10 mins. All in our group plan to be back here for our next trip to Oahu!

Beautiful home and awesome location!

  • 5 of 5

The check in process was easy and they provided codes a week in advance. They tried their best to accommodate early check-in which helped out a lot! Unfortunately we were not able to do a late check out which wasn’t a huge a problem. The amenities were amazing: we loved that we were close to the the beach, swim gear, snorkels, and kayaks, lifejackets and beach toys for children. We love the house it was spacious it was big and able to accommodate our whole family. We were able to cook in our kitchens and just relax it was nice! The only downside was that the only the AC is only in their bedrooms which made it tougher for some of my family members that stayed in the living room. Overall, our stay was beautiful and rated five stars.

Great vacation property and location!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a weeklong trip to Oahu, and spent the first 4 nights at this property in Kailua. We were traveling with a big group which included kids and babies (8 adults, 4 toddlers, 2 infants). This property had absolutely everything we wanted and needed in a vacation rental. Lots of small touches to make it feel like home, and the property itself was renovated very well. The laundry was great to have as well. We generally spent most of the time upstairs because the space was great to have everybody comfortably there. Nice long dining table was able to accommodate everyone for meals. Had a private chef come in the last night we were there and the room/kitchen was perfect for that. The one comment everyone kept saying was just how close the beach was to the house, and that we couldn't have asked for a better location. Plenty of beach toys (and having the wagon to haul it all across the street was great) and snorkel gear. Didn't get the chance to use the kayaks but that was more due to the weather. Thought parking was going to be more of an issue as we got in on a Saturday afternoon, but everything worked out well even with three cars.

Can't say enough about the property, and we are already thinking of the next time we can make it out. Also, great communication from Louise/Genette throughout the booking/rental process. Thanks for a great trip!

All we had hoped for

  • 5 of 5

This property is amazing. We are Kailua locals who wanted to have a place nearby for mainland family to stay, play, and congregate in and around a wedding and found this to be a perfect setup near everything with a gorgeous view just across from the beach, with kayaks and outdoor shower included. The quality of the renovation makes you want to keep it beautiful and every detail is not only lovely but functional and comfortable, with so much room to just share company and wish this was your everyday. We had a bathroom light issue and a TV malfunction that were fixed within a day -- the caretakers are uber responsive. The pictures do represent what you get. 4 comfy bedrooms in the main house with 4 bathrooms (2 en suite) and more sleeping in common rooms. Plenty of cooking and serving ware. Parking was not an issue. Would recommend this VRBO in a heartbeat. We ended up having our family get togethers here rather than at my house! 6 stars, easy. Thank you so much!
