Kailua studio description

Hale Moana is a Non-Smoking studio nestled beneath two lovely shade trees with a 'treehouse' view. Our studio is cooled by refreshing island tradewinds and by the shade from our Monkeypod and Tamarind Trees.
Hale Moana has interior teak and bamboo furnishings which rest on a cool, quartzite slate tile floor. Private parking & entry to a 750+ square foot studio and lanai. The interior also has a vaulted ceiling with skylights and plenty of light throughout. Gas two-burner cooking inside and a gas BBQ grill outside. 39' TV. Wifi.
Once settled in at Hale Moana, you will be a few delightfully sandy paces to beautiful Kailua Bay and Kalama Beach with views of Flat island, the Mokulua islands (Moku Nui and Moku Iki), outer islands (sometimes Molokai and Maui are visible in the distance) and wonderful sunrises too on our East facing, windward side of the island. Listen to the birds, ocean and breezes...

Guest comment: 'This vacation was paradise, not at least because of this great place to stay! Though Germany is far, far away - we would love to come back and we will. Mahalo for everything (we will miss all the flowers!) N&T

Guest comment: 'We absolutely loved our stay here! Your place is so cute and we loved all the art and Hawaiian touches.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 1939

                          Why the Owner Chose Kailua:
                          This home was built for our tutu, Moana, in 1939; it was one of the first houses in the neighborhood, when the streets were paved with crushed coral. Moana married and moved to Kailua, from Waikiki, to raise a family of three. The older generation remained in Waikiki, in the family home there, until the mid '50's. We built onto the main house in 2003 to create what is now our studio, Hale Moana. We hope you enjoy the space we've created as much as our guests, friends and family members do.
