What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Kailua

This is a quiet, tree-lined gated community . The officers at the main gate are very nice and helpful. I don't like that the back gate seems to be broken more than working.

I enjoy spending time at the lake and golf course. I like the community amenities like the walking trails and pool and tennis courts. I like the gate security and our neighbors are friendly. I like to go to the local pub and coffee shop.

It's a typical older neighborhood in Hawaii. Most of the houses have had a few additions but not too fancy. It's very densely populated but surprisingly quiet. I am 2 blocks from the bus line so when I am too old and decrepit to drive I can take the bus. My neighbors are nice and we know each other. I am a mile away from stores, banks, church, and businesses so I don't have to go to Honolulu very often. It's flat so it's easy for walking. Because we are close to the beach we don't get much rain.

Well liked people, a mix of locals and visitors. Shops close by, no need to travel far. Lots of places to eat and meet.

There are parks nearby. I feel safe in my neighborhood. The houses are well maintained. There are close stores and restaurants.

Supermarket nearby, good views, community center, pool and park are top notch. I also like that we are away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
