AN AWESOME TIME!
My wife and I celebrated our 5th wedding anniversary here at Blue Ginger. Initially I chose this place for its location. Close to town and the beach. A quick walk either way! Needless to say my expectations here were exceeded. The house was awesome. The lanai, front and back, were a great place to spend the morning coffee and evening dinner. The grounds are lush and wonderful. A great hide-away feel. I have been to Hawaii several times and have always favored Kailua. Its a great little town. This was by far the best place that I have stayed. Susan and Claude are fantastic hosts! It was the best 2 weeks that my wife and I have had together. In fact we made reservations dates to return before we had even left!

PERFECT HOME BASE FOR THE KIDS!
Susan and Claude were perfect hosts. Their place had every amenity you could imaging; from aloe vera gel, snorkel masks, to limes. The kids (ages 5 & 6) never wanted to leave, because you open the back door to the pool and it's everything they needed. It is the perfect size for our toddlers; small enough and only 4 feet. The jacuzzi was also great in the evenings. For those looking for a lot of privacy and seclusion, this is probably not your best bet being that it is attached directly to the owner's main house. The kids slept in the trundle bed and that worked out just fine. The loft was a little steep; especially for those night wakers. Overall, it was a great stay. The pool was so fabulous that it worked to our disadvantage; we probably missed a few days at the beach or sightseeing because our kids preferred the pool . C'est la vie! -ANJAL P.

PERFECT IN EVERY WAY
We stayed in the Blue Ginger this past fall. We were two couples. The cottage was really great. It was plenty big enough for four adults. The property was great. We felt welcome and were able to relax there. We cooked most of our meals there which was very convenient and cost effective. The location to Kailua Beach is excellent, and it was our favorite beach on the island! The owners are present and respectful of your privacy but are available to ask questions. Overall, our experience at the Blue Ginger was perfect. It was our Mele Hele away from home! -YVETTE from Connecticut (Stayed: September 2011 Source: VRBO)
WE WERE JUST LOOKING AT OUR PICTURES
We were just looking at our pictures from our summer vacation on this cold snowy Colorado day. We were reminded of the the Blue Ginger Cottage and that it was beyond our expectations. The cottage was classy yet quaint. This tropical and safe neighborhoodlocation was perfect and the home like atmosphere was comforting and relaxing. The beach and everything you need is close by.Staying here was like staying with your favorite Aunt and Uncle. Susan and Claude's hospitality was like none we have ever encountered. We will definitely be coming back here! -KEITH & ANITA DAVIS from Colorado (Stayed: November 2009 Source: VRBO)
MOST WELCOMING AND COMFORTABLE
We came and stayed here back in 2006 and must say it is one of the most welcoming and comfortable places we have ever visited. The acommodation is fantastically comfortable, with more than enough space both inside and to the rear of the property. The furniture is modern and very tasteful. We will always remember our stay with fond memories as the owners, who were very friendly and generous, even let us use the Lanai for our sons wedding reception. It was a wonderful experiecne and we would highly recommend blue ginger to anyone considering a holiday in Kailua; 10/10 for location, comfort and style. - ANONYMOUS from London (Stayed: September 2009 Source: VRBO)
WE HAD SUCH A WONDERFUL TIME AT YOUR COTTAGE!
We had such a wonderful time at your cottage! The property is so beautiful and the pool was perfect. The cottage has everything we could have possibly needed from kitchen stuff to beach toys. We appreciated the proximity to the beach (10 houses) as it is hard to judge on a map how close it really is. And what a beach it is! Claude and Susan, you were wonderful hosts and look forward to future visits! Thank you! -SUSANNAH, JESSE, AMBER & JESSICA (Stayed: July 2009 Source: VRBO)
My family of five stayed at this wonderful location equipped with everything we needed and more. We arrived to find a lovely, very clean cottage with complimentary fruit, Kona coffee, fruit drinks in the fridge, even popsicles! We had beach mats, boogie boards, coolers, towels, masks, snorkels made available to us daily. We enjoyed the refreshing pool and hot tub and outside BBQ and patio area where we prepared a lot of our meals. I did use the skillet for breakfast. There's nothing they could add, we were pampered. We were blessed with gracious hosts. - BIG MAMA from Niagara Falls (Stayed: August 2012 Source: VRBO)
We enjoy having guests at our home. It is always a pleasure. These guests were delightful, including the 3 children. Mahalo
We discovered Blue Ginger Cottage three years ago and immediately fell in love with it. The cottage is beautifully decorated and furnished with all the amenities. The location is perfect with both beach and downtown close by. The outdoor space is wonderfully tranquil. We cannot imagine a nicer spot or more attentive owners. As a result, we have become Blue Ginger regulars with our time already reserved for next year. We can't recommend this cottage highly enough ( but don't try to get our time slot!) -JIM AND CELIA from Yankton, South Dakota (Stayed: January 2012 Source: VRBO)
THIS WAS OUR FIRST TRIP TO HAWAII, AND THIS WAS OUR GEM!
This was our 5th experience renting on VRBO, from Florida to Cape Cod to now Hawaii.. All were pleasant. This house however was probably our best and most enjoyable one, especially due to the fact that our hosts, Claude and Suzanne, lived in the house next door and were there everyday to ensure our stay was perfect. To both of you, we wish to hereby say how we appreciated our stay and how wonderful hosts you are.
Our family of four arrived from Canada for our first trip in Hawaii and Oahu not exactly knowing what to expect. My god was this a pleasant surprise. The house is walking distance 5-8 minutes away from Kailua beach which is really, REALLY one of the nicest beach we have ever seen in the US ( Conde Nast also voted it one of the best beach in the US), although windy. As days went by, we could appreciate the quality of our positioning on the island. 20 minutes away by car from all the excitements and excellent restaurants of Waikiki, yet perfectly well served by all the commercial ecosystem in Kailua where you find everything from excellent restaurants to an organic supermarket! It is a super quiet and safe environment, rather high end residential neighborhood. With time, we quickly realized how of a perfect nest it became for our vacations. From the quiet environment needed for the daily naps of our young kids to the magnificent pool that was always there to please us, to the very quick wifi always available, free, very quick and stable! (this is not a given everywhere!) A pool may seem obvious when you come from far away, but as we found in Hawaii, it is not so common in a rental. All in all, this was a perfect location, very nicely decorated and renovated, very clean little house.
We gave 5 stars and they are all deserved. Claude & Suzanne, thank you again for your excellent company and hospitality. Mahalo!!! -THE FAMILY OF YVETTE & DEO from Canada (Stayed: June 2011 Source: VRBO)
