About Matt & Patti
I moved to Oahu from SoCal in 1993 to work in real estate and surf. Shortly afterwards I met my wife. Patti and her family has been in Kailua for generations. We've been married 20+ years living in Kailua. We have 2 super outgoing and athletic children. Our son is a Junior at Chapman University and our daughter is a Junior at Mid-Pacific Institute. We're a family with Christian values.
Matt & Patti purchased this Studio in 2012
Why Matt & Patti chose Kailua
We bought our home because it is uniquely located between Kailua Town and the beach on a tertiary (non-busy) street. It is the gateway neighborhood to Lanikai without the headache of Lanikai's famous traffic. It is in the middle of everything, the most convenient of meeting places for our kids and their friends.
What makes this Studio unique
One of the things we really love about our home is its location. Friends and family stop by regularly because they were "in the neighborhood". An example is Kailua Beach is one of the most popular places to watch a 4th of July Parade and fireworks. Family and friends park at our home, have a pot-luck dinner and then walk to the beach for the fireworks. Since moving in we completely remodeled the entire home. It was originally built in the 1950's and we completely renovated it with a beach-modern look fully equipped with photovoltaic, thermal solar and other energy efficiencies. We love it because it is comfortable, quiet and a safe place for our family and friends.

Our first trip to Hawaii was almost perfect! The unit was spotlessly clean, exactly as portrayed, and Matt and Patti were awesome hosts! We had a extremely fun vacation and we're able to visit almost all parts of the island and do everything that we wanted to do! The cottage where we stayed was convenient to everything, the beach and downtown area were walkable and when we didn't want to walk, we were able to use two bikes provided to ride all over our part of island. If it wasn't for our children and grandchild , we might stay for another month :-) thanks Matt and Patti!

Cute, Clean, Relaxing!!
The cottage was clean, well furnished, and in good repair. Communication with our host was simple and timely. Also, it was a nice change of pace to be in the neighborhood of a smaller town, as opposed to the busyness of the Waikiki scene. Thank you for a comfortable place to consider home for the week!
Clean, quiet, nice location. Bikes to explore town were nice. East bike ride to beach or you can walk. The size was appropriate for the two of us. Highly recommend this location. Kailua is a great beach town!
Thanks Alison! We appreciate your review and are glad you guys used the bikes! What a great way to get around Kailua and to/from the beach. We hope to see you guys again.
WHAT A PERFECT COTTAGE!
The cottage was wonderful. It was clean, quiet, and within an easy walk to the beach and to town actually. Met a wonderful neighbor who took us on a tour of the area and helped us with a flat tire. A private sitting area and awesome air conditioning. My friend said that the only item needed was a clock. I told her to look at the microwave. What a great and relaxingl week we had. I am keeping the # for the future.
Aloha Joan. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. We certainly hope to see you again. No watch, no clock.......just relax and enjoy Kailua!
Everything was great and exactly as described. We were fly fishing so our local guide would pick us up every morning and returns in the afternoon. We’d usually bicycle in to town for dinner, which was very close.
All and all we had a fantastic time and loved the apartment.
Thanks Tim! And thank you for sharing your photos catching fish with your fly rod/reel! What a treat. We hope to see you guys again. Warmest Aloha!
We had such a great time staying here in Kailua. It's a very short walk from the beach - which helps on busy days when parking can be tough! Sandy Bottom's cottage definitely feels like home. It was sparkling clean, bedding felt fresh, and had everything we needed - including beach towels, shampoo, conditioner, etc! Matt & Patti were great hosts and very welcoming. Thank you!!!
Thank you Josefina. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay with us. Warmest Aloha to you and family. A hui hou!
