About the property

Steps to the beach on a private road. Enjoy the quiet beach neighborhood with .

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

coffee maker

toaster oven


electric tea pot

induction hot plate

pots and pans

iron and ironing board


rice cooker

TV with cable service

beach chairs and towels

snorkeling equipment

beach umbrella



If you need anything else, just ask.

Glasses, dishes and silverware are all provided

Guest Access

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.

The Neighborhood

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.

Getting Around

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.

House Rules

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.

About Helen Petrovitch

My husband and I are both internal medicine MDs. We enjoyed bringing up our children and now that they are gone we have some space to share. We took our family all over the world when our children were young and usually stayed in places like we are now offering. This is what has motivated us to have vacation rentals.

Helen Petrovitch purchased this cottage in 1997

Quiet and Tranquil

I loved the Tiki room. All the amenities supplied and a very well kept property. My hosts were very accommodating and made me feel very welcome. I would definitely book this property again.

What a Gem of a Place!

  • 5 of 5

What a gem of a place this is. Five stars are not enough! I couldn't be more pleased. Helen and her family are just the nicest people ever! They made me feel right at home. I have everything I need plus my favorite beach is right outside just steps away. I love my early morning walks on the beach and afternoon swims. The location is very convenient for getting just about anywhere on the island. It takes about 30 minutes to get to downtown Honolulu. It only take five minutes to get to Kailua Town and the Down to Earth and Whole Foods for food shopping. I'm local, so I don't eat out as much as perhaps a visitor might, however there are all sorts of good restaurants in KailuaTown. I would recommend this place in a heartbeat. It's just perfect!
