The space

Lilikoi cottage is a light and airy 2 bedroom home. It is 1 1/2 blocks from Kailua Beach .
The cottage has a private entry and a private garden patio area.
The Living room had a beachy feel and is bright and airy. The kitchen is fully equipped for cooking. It has pot, pans, cutting boards, utensils, etc... We try to keep some staples for you ie: salt, pepper, some spices, sugar, cooking oils, mayonnaise, mustard, and ketchup.
The back patio has an outside dining table and a gas grill.
The cottage has TV, WiFi, and books for you to enjoy.
It also has its own washer and dryer.
The master bedroom has a comfortable queen sized bed with soft linens. The room is bright and airy with a sliding glass door to the back patio and an a/c unit for the occasional hot and sticky night.
The second bedroom has two twin beds with soft linens and is accessed off of the cottage's living room. The twin room also has an A/C unit for keep you comfortable while you sleep.

Kailua Beach is a 3 mile stretch of beautiful sandy beach. There are small waves that are a blast to play in for all ages. We provide boogie boards, beach chairs, snorkeling equipment and bikes. We also have surfboards for those who are so inclined. The Cottage is fully equipped for your short or long stay on Oahu so feel free to pack light.

Kailua is a quiet neighborhood with a great town center. We are about a mile from the center of Kailua town. Kailua hosts great shopping and great places to eat. We have 2 farmer's markets on Thursday and one on Sunday morning. They are a great place to try local treats.

We hope that you choose to vacation in beautiful Kailua, it is a world away from the hustle and bustle of Waikiki!

Katherine made us feel very welcome in her cottage with a basket of tasty Hawaiian treats. But the best thing was the proximity to the draw-droppingly beautiful Kailua and Lanikai beaches. And Katherine provides everything you need to really make the most of them.

This little Kailua cottage is 2 blocks from a beach access point - not too far to lug beach chairs and coolers to one of the nicest beaches on Oahu. since it was hot when we stayed we appreciated the ceiling fans and AC units in the bedrooms.

The Lilikoi Cottage was our home away from home while in Hawaii for a week. Kailua is the perfect location to truly experience Hawaii. Katherine had everything we needed, right down to the aloe lotion! All you need to pack are your clothes. The check in/check out process was …

Response from Katherine:
In Response to Marc's review I would like to say a few things: 1) Marc and his family arrived at the cottage at 2:30pm and check in time is 3:00pm. The Cottage was not ready as you stated. I was finishing up vacuuming the living room floor and still needed to make the bed, as well as other last minute touches. 2) As for the refrigerator leaking; when you brought this to my attention I told you that I was aware of the leak and that we are renovating the kitchen in April which included replacing all of the appliances. 3) As for the centipede I apologize but unfortunately they are part of living in the tropics. I have never seen a centipede inside the cottage before. As I stated in our earlier correspondence, I cannot reimburse you the airbnb fees that I do not receive. As for the cleaning fee, even though you only stayed one night, the entire cottage and all of the linens still need to be cleaned before the next guest arrives. When I explained the break down of my refund you instantly threatened to write me a bad review if I did not refund you $35 in airbnb fees as well as the entire $100 cleaning fee. As per the airbnb community host and guest standards, this type of threat is considered extortion. This platform is built on trust and honest reviews by both hosts and guests, I felt it necessary to inform airbnb of your threat to leave a poor review if I did not compensate you the additional $135. I had already refunded you $1074.85 . I phoned airbnb and spoke with them directly, they instructed me to flag our conversation and stated that I have given you an ample refund especially since you agreed to my moderate cancellation policy. I would have been completely within my rights to only give you a refund of $447.50. This information is taken directly from their website about the compensation guests should expect with a Moderate Cancellation Policy: "Moderate Cancellation Policy: Full refund 5 days prior to arrival, except fees" "If the guest arrives and decides to leave early, 50% of the accommodation fees for the nights not spent 24 hours after the cancellation occurs are refunded." Aloha, Katherine
