A mini resort by the beach that made our first trip to Hawaii extra special. The place had everything we needed and more! Susan was very friendly and so were other guests on the property. You can expect nightly communal poolside chats or opt to lounge in your private quarters. This was our first Airbnb reservation, all future airbnb bookings will have a lot to live up to in comparison. Thanks again Susan!

Amazing! Waking distance to a relaxing beach, host provides everything needed to really enjoy the beach. Host was friendly and accommodating. The place was one of the rare airbnb's which was actually better than the listing looked. 5/5

The following review was written by my husband, Curtis. Susan is the ultimate airbnb hostess. Her property is spacious, with lovely landscaping that includes swimming and warm pools, sculpture, fountain, lawns and plants. The cottage was very charming, well appointed and had good feng shui. The bed had a king and so comfortable. The closets were ample. There were ac and ceiling fans in both bed and living rooms and could all be controlled separately. The living room was nicely furnished with table and chairs for eating and raised memory foam couch/extra bed platform full of cushions. There were TV’s in both rooms. The living room t.v. had full cable and the bedroom t.v. offered Netflix and Amazon. Both rooms had adjustable blinds that allowed for full light to very low light options. I am legally blind and was pleased at how easy it was to understand the layout and move around without accident. The kitchen was well equipped and opens onto a private deck with picnic table and benches for fresh air dining. It was all so deliciously enjoyable. We had a lovely beach just a short walk where the sand was soft, the water warm and the waves just enough to rock us into the idyllic state that is IS the Hawaii dream.

We had a wonderful stay in Susan's cottage. The communications before our arrival was fantastic and the location of the house is just one house away from the beautiful Kailua beach. The cottage was very well appointed with all the amenities and supplies you can possibly want or need both inside and outside. Susan and her son are both extremely welcoming. This is my first time using Airbnb and would definitely do it again! p.s. The cottage has a ductless air conditioning that works extremely well. We rarely needed it during our stay but this is definitely a huge plus if you are visiting in the warmer months.

Susan was completely friendly and welcoming and it was lovely to share the space of her home. We got some great recommendations on places to go in town. For the majority of the time that we stayed, it was very quiet on the property and it almost felt like we had the space to ourselves. Especially enjoyed the hot tub when it was a bit too cool and cloudy to go to the beach. The walk to the beach is so easy; simply amazing location.

We had such a great time staying here on our weeklong trip. The cottage was wonderful, the location couldn't be beat, and Susan was very welcoming. It was amazing being just a few hundred feet away from the beach, and we were very happy with our decision to stay in Kailua. I would recommend the cottage to anyone, and we would be glad to stay again on another visit to Oahu!

Aloha. I am grateful for living in Kailua since 1966 and now with my son, Paulo, since 1989. We love to share our piece of paradise, steps to one of the most beautiful beaches on Oahu or Hawaii for that matter. Our home is an historic home (by Hawaii standards) built in 1937. We have been hosting in our cottage since 2002 and recently remodeled adding our “sandroom” in December 2012. Both the cottage and sandroom are attached to our home that we live in. Though our home is quite open we have created privacy on our side of the house as we have a large beachside yard separate from the pool area.

We take our hosting very seriously. We enjoy meeting and greeting guests from all over the world. We are available if you need us or just want to chat. We love to be invisible too and will respect your privacy and please respect our privacy.

I have one sweet silky terrier (6yo) who will wander into your place if you leave the door open. She is a hypo allergenic dog

I love to cook, read, watch movies, learn, go to the beach, travel, make a good cup of coffee, listen to music, entertain, appreciate art, walk, nature, listen to NPR, take in the hot tub, dip in the pool, drink wine and laugh (big doses). I love my family, friends and my dog.

Paulo loves all ocean sports, grilling, cooking, fiddling around with different musical instruments, learning, driving his truck, eating, traveling, nature, hiking, concerts, cultural events, and jiu jitsu. I just want to add that he has amazing dancing skills of which I am so jealous. I think he should do a stand-up comedy act. When not working, he is available to teach surfing and stand-up paddleboard.

Paulo speaks Spanish, Portuguese, little Italian and Pidgin. English spoken by Susan. I would love to speak French one day.
