Doug & Bird's place was a big, welcoming, somewhat bohemian sort of place. We were in the smallest room but it's not like you're going to spend a lot of time in there, the common area is nice, and besides there is Oahu/Kailua/beach to explore. It's in a fantastic location at the far north end of the huge Kailua beach, but it has private gate access up there, so at times it felt like an enormous private beach. Doug & Bird have towels, umbrellas, and a few other random bits and pieces they'll lend you. They also have kayaks and equipment, which we never ended up using. The house is a short drive to Kailua which is a lovely, medium sized town. There are also a couple of places to eat and a Safeway just around the corner.

Doug and Bird were great hosts. Their place has a beachy sort of feel to it, with both covered and open areas to relax with them and other guests. Right on the canal with kayaks, etc. The room and bed were comfortable. There were 2 chairs in the room but no table, although because there was plenty of space in the outdoor living area, the lack of a table in the room wasn't a problem. Way more than enough towels, lots of hot water in the shower, a basic but useable kitchen. The camaraderie and generally relaxed feel were the best part. We hope to stay here again! However, next time we might pick a time when the Obamas aren't in residence - the Secret Service checkpoints were ok but the canal was off limits til the Obamas left.

What a great stay! Doug gave us a free upgrade to a small studio which was very noce. Their house is perfectly located, ypu wake up to the aound of the ocean, the wind and with the canal on your doorstep. Everything is like shown on the pictures, everything was superclean, they prepared some snacks, drinks and had coffee. Doug aand Bird were very welcoming bit not overly, let us use their beach equipment and water sports gadgets. We had a perfect stay!

Doug and Bird were very welcoming and even provided us with a box of chocolates as a welcome gift. Our room was very clean and comfortable. Doug gave us great helpful tips about the area and suggested routes to take when we went driving around to be tourists and do some sightseeing. We were encouraged to join in the evening socializing and even a barbeque event with Doug, Bird and their other friendly guests.

I had an outstanding stay at Doug's place. Doug, his wife, and long term guests made me feel welcome, and we quickly became good friends. They gave me space if I wanted it but also invited me to hang out with them for BBQs and lots of fun games of ping pong. The house is situated along the banks of a canal, just a block from the north end of Kailua Beach. The location is absolutely perfect. When ready for some beach time, you pick out some beach chairs and an umbrella, and off you go. The north end is never crowded because it is not publicly accessible from the beach (the houses, including Doug's, has a key to a gated beach walkway). Doug also had boogie boards, paddle boards, bikes, and a canoe for lots of fun activities. I had a rental car, and there was always ample street parking. The neighborhood is really affluent and safe. The balcony room overlooks the canal and mornings here are so peaceful. I loved starting my day with breakfast on the balcony, looking out for fish jumping out of the water just yonder. The bed was comfortable, and the room was quiet, so I felt refreshed every morning. The entire premises were neat and tidy, and the landscaping was beautiful. Doug is a wonderful host, and I can't wait for my next visit.

Wonderful people and excellent location. It was pleasure to stay with Doug and birdie during my finance and I vacation. They were very accommodating when we wanted to switch our room from the interior to the balcony room. They offer tons of activity options ig ocean kayaks, bike's (use this to get around Kailua) to get around Kailua beach, lanikai and Kailua town. Doug and birdie are wonderful hosts and I highly recommend staying at their place

I am a lifetime Kailua resident. Live with wife, Bird, where we own and manage our vacation rental as part of our home. Retired from police department, I stay busy maintaining this and other rental properties in Kailua, doing most upkeep on my own. I stay active with slow-pitch softball, tennis, kayaking and ping-pong.
