Staying in Kailua

Kailua has no hotels, but it has many b&bs and vacation rentals, some of them unlicensed, a source of tension in some residential neighborhoods. Most are privately rented, so there is no centralized listing. You’ll just have to browse on the Web.

Where to eat in Kailua

Kailua has dozens of restaurants, so finding sustenance should not be a problem.Here are a few of our favorites:

Buzz’s Lanikai
413 Kawailoa Rd., (808) 261-4661 
A classic beachside steak house, open for lunch and dinner.

Boots & Kimo's Homestyle Kitchen

Formaggio Grill
