Relaxing and Peaceful
We absolutely loved this hidden gem - it's beautiful, comfortable and well stocked, a true home away from home. The location is the perfect combination of being close to shopping, restaurants and beach access but is tucked away in a beautiful hillside neighborhood with absolute peace and quiet. As a bonus, there's a lovely and loyal old dog Shay that truly brings the 4-legged love were missing leaving our dogs at home. The apartment is exactly as pictured - comfortable furnishings, well cared for and has everything you'll need including beach towels, coolers and chairs. There are wonderful fans throughout the house including the large deck (we spend most of our time there) so it was breezy and comfortable any time of the day. The property is gated so we felt totally safe, never locked our car or the apartment - you will love staying here as much as we did (5 nights total). There's a wonderful beach about 20 minutes away on Kua Bay that we went to every day except Wednesday (closed) and lots good beaches just north of that. You're close to many good restaurants and shopping nearby in Kailua only 5 minutes away. It's also close to grocery stores and Costco. We loved that we felt like 'locals' and tourists at the same time and saved a lot of money eating meals at the apartment. It was easy and effortless dealing with Donna and a pleasure to finally meet her and Robbie. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place to anyone and hope to stay here again someday.
