Modern, New and Upscale Ohana Unit Across From Kailua Beach
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 and accommodating features that enhance a traveler's needs and comfort.
Louise Tower purchased this Cottage in 2014
Why Louise Tower chose Kailua
Being fully remodeled from wall to wall, these homes were taken down to the bare shells and upgraded from the ground up. 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 Cottage unique
It's modern, its chic, its comfortable and contemporary with luxury amenities such as an outside shower, kayaks and paddle boards, snorkels and masks enhance the amazing location with the best beach in the world, just feet away.

A perfect little beach house between Kailua and Lanikai!
My boyfriend and I decided that we wanted to have a little staycation at a place right by the beach with one of our dogs. This house was perfect! It was a short walk to Lanikai Beach, and Kailua Beach was right across the street. Loved the amenities that were provided, such as the barbecue gas grill, washer and dryer, outdoor shower for washing off after the beach, and all of the comforts of home but better because we were right across from the beach! Communication with the property manager, Louise, was great! She did everything to make sure that we really enjoyed our stay. I would definitely love to stay here again!
Great houses and even better selection of beach toys!
Great place, beautiful area and beach, will definitely be back!
Everything was great, no complaints.
Fantastic location!!! & loved the kayaks!!!
We loved the house, and the location was an A++. We normally stay in hotels in Hawaii and really enjoyed the extra space that a house provides plus the washer/dryer. It was also nice to have a kitchen and be able to prepare some simple meals, after eating in restaurants for every meal prior to staying in the house.
The interior of the house was bright and beautifully decorated—just like the pictures. Here are the best things about the house that I didn’t fully appreciate until we got there: (1) the location was just steps away from a gorgeous beach (with a street crossing). We had never been to Kailua beach before and it’s beautiful (a bit windy, but still comfortable), (2) We knew the house had four kayaks and 2 stand-up paddle boards (plus many other beach toys and amenities). We didn’t realize up front how much we would enjoy them! The house had wheels for the kayaks, so they were easy to transport from the house to the ocean. I had only been kayaking a handful of times prior to this vacation and had never tried SUP. Both were very fun, and our kids (age 17 and 11) really enjoyed them. We ended up using the kayaks every day for at least an hour or two. We weren’t sure our 11-year-old son would be able to kayak in the ocean, but he did great (we were there on calm days). (3) the house was very thoughtfully outfitted with everything we needed to be comfortable (laundry detergent, paper towels, blender, air tight containers for leftovers, a mat for leaving dishes out to dry, a vegetable peeler, and more). It seemed to me that the owner must have stayed in the rental unit to figure out exactly what was needed.
We were glad the house had air conditioning in the bedrooms, and we were able to open the bedroom doors to cool off the living area a bit. It was hot during the day (around 90), and at the end of the day, we enjoyed the reprieve of air conditioning. The lanai was nice and private. We enjoyed some time out there, but kept coming back into the air conditioning. If it had been a couple degrees cooler, we would have spent all our time on the lanai.
As for things to do close by – the favorite thing that we did was kayak on the ocean down to a little river and then kayaking on the river, which was calm and relaxing. We didn’t want to come back on the ocean because it was upwind (and we were tired at that point), but my husband fetched the kayak wheels from the house and we easily wheeled the kayaks back to the house.
Best Town on Oahu, Steps Away from the Beach — Paradise!!
Guys this place was such a wonderful getaway. Loved hanging out and grilling on the lanai, enjoying having all the windows open to take in the breeze, and best of all being steps away from the best beach I’ve ever been to. Bed and sofa are comfy ... there are so many TVs!! I would think depending on your normal living situation this would feel cramped for a family of 4 (but if youre from nyc/san fran, its plenty of room!). Very clean and has everything you need. Having another group in the big house and the residents downstairs we’re friendly and didnt disturb us at all. Thanks again!!
We loved having you and hope you'll be back to stay with us!
The flat has style and a very good location next to the Beach
