The price is set very low at $100 because due to zoning laws we must rent for a minimum of 30 days. There is also a Hawaii State GETax of 4.5% and a TATax of 9.25% The studio is large. We just renovated it in the summer of 2016 and it is very well appointed and feels new and very tropical. The beach is two houses away using our private beach access. At night you can hear the ocean. The kitchen is full of appliances and a small fridge with an additional small fridge in a cupboard just outside.
Appliances and extras include:
washer and dryer in our garage
electric tea pot
induction hot plate
pots and pans
iron and ironing board
TV with cable service
beach chairs and towels
If you need anything else, just ask.
Glasses, dishes and silverware are all provided
We have beach chairs, a beach umbrella, beach towels, snorkeling equipment, boogie boards, and a cooler to make your stay fun and enjoyable.
We are very lucky to have an onsite massage therapist who is also an expert in skin care including facials, peels and wonderful skin products. A great way to get a head start on a very relaxing vacation.
The pool in the back yard is for our guests to use 11am to 6 pm - this is because from the pool area there is a direct line of vision into our bedroom.
Interaction with Guests
We enjoy meeting people from everywhere. We also welcome conversations and inquiries about Hawaii and our neighborhood. Please provide your arrival and departure times when booking. If we can't be there to greet you - we will connect with you by cell phone on arrival and meet you in person as soon as we can.
Ours is a friendly private street where there are several beach vacation rentals. If you stroll down the beach for about a mile there is a very cute neighborhood store that sells groceries wine and beer, and coffee drinks - they have a deli with great dishes for a picnic. Kailua town is a 5 minute drive to great shops and restaurants.
There is a bus stop very close by. Enterprise has a car rental office in Kailua. You cannot take the bus from the airport to our home WITH a suitcase. A taxi from the airport will cost about 40-60 dollars.
Children must be 7 years or older. Smoking is not allowed on our property. Please keep noise levels down in the evening as ours is a quiet neighborhood. The inside of our house including our bedroom and bathroom is clearly viewed from the backyard so we ask guests to use the pool between 11am and 6pm so that is will not interfere with our privacy. We are usually away for a good part of the day at work.
