Recently, Kolea Estates, in the heart of Kailua, Oahu, hosted a wedding and family reunion. We are so pleased to have been part of a memorable occasion.
Here are some wonderful words from a recent guest:
We came for the wedding and got a fabulous family reunion!!!
I could not have reserved a better place to house my family for my son’s wedding. Each one of us had lots of private space and the kids loved the pool! There were four+ families at the house and had plenty of room to even arrange 26 flower vases, bouquets, etc for the wedding. If I had known how spacious the property was, I would have hosted the rehearsal dinner at the house. With the windows open, there was plenty of air movement. The two kitchens and sitting areas made meals very relaxing and easy.
I was very surprised at the welcome fruit and soap basket coffee cards and to find laundry detergent (two sets of machines). There are plenty of toys and movies, beach umbrellas and sand toys (boogie boards too). Never ran out of towels or dishes. I’m telling you it was well worth the price!
The gated drive and garage held 3 vans and a car comfortable and gave you complete security and privacy. Kudos to the staff at Emma Spencer Living!!
Suggestions to owners: label light switches, some sort of alarms for little ones around the pool, large crock pot. Suggestions for visitors: Watch the TV remote (hitting wrong button threw volume into max), hit Lanikai beach mid week/not on the weekend, Whole Foods right down the street (yeah!). Eat local and get shave ice from Island Snow! Sea Life park is about 20 minutes and Honolulu is about 30 in mid traffic times. Kailua is much better than Waikiki, slower pace, feels more like Hawaii, beautiful sandy beaches.
We appreciate the insight and information from our guests. We strive to make your stay at Kolea the best it can possibly be, and your suggestions and feedback help us keep doing that. Mahalo!
