“There are not enough good thing to say about Wen’s place! Her hospitality was outstanding, she was in constant communication and even let us in on when farmer markets would be set up in the Kailua area. Her place was perfect for my husband and I! She provided beach towels, beach gear, and reusable shopping bags/thermal lunch box (we ended up buying our own for souvenirs). My only “complaint” would be at first the Airbnb was a little tricky to find(due to our flight landing late and arriving at the Airbnb in the evening) but Wen made sure to provide directions (a few weeks ahead of time from our reservation date) from the airport to her place (provided alternative route due to a highway closure) and with pictures of the road/cross road. My husband and I definitely feel we got what we paid for, and we enjoy supporting local instead of hotel stays if we can. We would definitely return to this Airbnb if we’re ever in the area again!”

“This is a very spacious studio apartment. It was quiet and super comfortable. The hosts were very helpful, but not intrusive. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed for cooking. The air conditioning worked well, although was not always needed as the apartment has many windows on all sides and great fans. The apartment is above the main house's carport, but we never heard cars coming and going. All the amenities were loverly. Lots of towels, comfy bed, washing machine and dryer, great TV, lots of different types of dishes. We had our adult daughter with us a few days and the hide a bed was super comfortable and easy to set up. The apartments is a half a block from a beach entrance and only took about 5 to 8 minutes to hit the beach. The house has beach chairs, boogie boards, beach toys, umbrellas for use. My husband and I used the bicycles and they were really good. We rode to Lanikai and back, a great trip. There are only kids bike helmets, so we went without.”

“Book way ahead if you hope to get Gary and Diana's place for your trip to Kailua. After much research of options there, I reserved our stay there 5 months before our trip. I'm glad I did. When I checked again a month later, their space was booked solid for months before and after our week. If we had chosen to stay in the Kailua area, we would have been fine without a car as it's an easy walk to restaurants and beaches, however, Gary wisely suggested to really see the island it's best to rent a car. Smart choice. Using less than a full tank of gas, we split our time between exploring the island and beach time. Our favorite beach was just 5-6 miles away at Waimanalo. Although the Kailua beaches are amazing, parking can be an issue. That was never the case at Waimanalo. Much fewer people there. And don't forget to check out the stretch of coastline between Waimanalo and Waikiki. Gary and Diana made us feel right at home and have thought of every detail in their space. Bottom line is that it's an incredible value.”
