Ask for Sydney
About Ask for Sydney
Steve and I lived in Colorado for 10 years and had our first child. She was 3 months premature and weighed in at a whopping 1 pound!! When she turned one, she weighed almost 10 pounds. Her doctor said that she would grow if we moved her to a warmer climate.. that it was difficult for her to maintain a 98.6 degree body temperature without burning so many calories. So, we moved to Hawaii.. with $500 in the bank and our little daughter. That was in December, 1979. And here we are 40 years later. Our daughter has since married and moved back to Colorado and had two beautiful daughters. We had our son after moving to Hawaii. He married his high school sweetheart, and they now have 2 sons. There's more to the story, so come and stay with us to hear the rest. We love our guests and have many repeat visitors to our lovely rentals.
Why Ask for Sydney chose Kailua
We used to own a small travel agency and people were always asking if there was anywhere to stay other than Waikiki. So we decided to rent out some rooms in our home to accommodate our clients and to make a little extra money. There were no hotels in our town and the beach was just gorgeous. Little did we know that Kailua would become such a wonderful vacation destination.
What makes this House unique
You will love the hospitality and service we provide our guests. The beach is absolutely gorgeous and the property is beautifully maintained and spotless. Steve's gardens are breathtaking and the pool is fully tiled and quite large. You can walk to the beach in less than 2 minutes and watch the moon rise over the ocean. This is especially gorgeous during the full moon. You can also see the sun rise over the ocean each morning. We truly live in Paradise and wish to share the experience with our guests....

Wonderful location across the street from Kailua Beach Park. Enjoyed our stay in Kailua and seeing most of O’ahu throughout our vacation, while having a comfortable place to sleep, snack and relax in the pool from time to time. Thank you Zak for a great stay for the 8 of us!!
Great location, comfortable home
This was a perfect spot for our family vacation-Kailua beach was great for small children, and the location was convenient to many of the places we wanted to visit on the island. The house was well-supplied with towels, paper goods, detergent, shampoo, pool and beach toys, beach chairs, 2 boogie boards and more. The pool was a little cool when we arrived in mid-march, but warmed up the following week. There were a few amenities that could use updating (the blinds did not work well, the balcony seemed unsafe to use, and the bikes could use repair) but the house is very comfortable. We especially enjoyed the ceiling fans in every room. Zak was very responsive anytime we needed something.
We found Buzz's Steakhouse disappointing (we ordered fish), and the cinnamon rolls at Cinnamons were very small. We especially liked Tokoname Sushi Bar & Restaurant; Mexico Lindo was good, as was Grylt.
Great location. Well stocked for a family vacation. Pool a great asset. Plenty of towels. Beach
Our family gathered at the Dolohin manor for a family vacation. We found the house a perfect match for us. The house is in a perfect spot. Very close to the beach with a gated driveway which gave us plenty of privacy. The house was well stocked with towels and bedding and the kitchen had everything we needed for the simple meals we prepared. The owners were available when needed but respected our family time. I would highly recommend this house for a family looking for a relaxed Hawaiian vacation in a beautiful place.
Great location but house definitely needs some attention!
Dolphin Manor is conveniently located across the road from Kailua Beach and having a nice backyard pool were the two positives of our stay. We traveled as a family of 9 people (3 generations). The house itself is tired and in need of maintenance. First impressions are everything! The eavestroughs are old and leaking all around the house and the exterior could use a good powerwash. The upper decking off the bedrooms is so rotted we didn't dare walk out there. Interior doors need a good clean and the windows, sliders and blinds are old and in bad shape. The master bathroom shower was unusable due to corroded taps. For the price, and comparing it to a similarly priced house we rented on another island, we were disappointed. It was great to have access to a few bicycles and there are lots of beach toys along with chairs to take to the beach!
Great location. Property has everything you need. Peaceful
Would definitely come back. Very enjoyable
Everything you need is right here !
We loved that the best beach is right across the street and the park is great for families. Nice for bike riding or walking early in the mornings when the sun rises. The house was spacious and we were a group of 6 adults. It was nice that there were two washers and dryers and plenty of parking for two cars behind the driveway gate. The pool was a bonus. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Oahu !
