Lovely Home with beautiful grounds and pool ! Caretaker was welcoming and kind. Quiet neighborhood and great beach access !! Barely spent time there, really only to sleep . Very comfortable and clean! Would definitely recommend. Mahalo!
HinaRapa and Theresa are such lovely, open-hearted people. It was a blessing to have them stay with us!
Comfortable studio with a short walk to a very beautiful beach
Our one week stay at this studio was very comfortable and enjoyable. The studio was small but very clean, well kept, and had all the necessities for a comfortable stay for two people. We were greeted by a lovely basket of fruit, some of which I was believe was grown on the property, which was delicious. Each morning we awoke to the sounds of a dozen tropical birds and ate breakfast on the nice patio. The pool was clean and a nice luxury after a day in the ocean. The place is only one block from a swim in the ocean and about 4 blocks from the best reefs for snorkling in Lanikai. While we were there it was unusually hot and humid, but the air conditioning, though a bit loud, kept the room plenty comfortable while we were there. There was plenty of room to hang wet swim clothes and towels and a washer/drier to accommodate when needed. All in all, I would highly recommend this place to stay.
Nick and Amy were so great at finding their way around the studio and grounds, while I communicated with them pretty much by email. I had just returned from my own vacation and was fighting a bug, which I didn't wish to pass to anyone. They left the studio in such a neat and clean condition. It was great to have them as guests. The studio is a bit cozy at 850 square feet, but I am glad they enjoyed their time here even so.
My family and I really enjoyed our stay the place was clean very we’ll stocked with essential items and Teresa made us feel welcome as well as accommodating. Definitely recommend the studio great location and close to the beach!
I am so glad that Diana and her family enjoyed themselves. Hurricane Lane threatened to cancel their flight out, but they handled that possibility with aplomb. Fortunately the storm downgrade to a Tropical Depression their last night with us and they were able to fly out the next morning. They are a lovely young family.
Clean, convenient and charming
A great location and a comfortable, spacious studio with a warm and thoughtful host. A great find!
We were so grateful for Michael and Andrea's courage in booking with us during a possible incoming storm. They were so kind and thoughtful, melding into the situation as they found it with ease. We were very lucky to have them as guests!
Cozy, quiet, and just right
The reviews about Teresa’s kindness are right on. Very willing to be as helpful as you’d like or leave you to your own directions. Her place was easy to find and very clean. The parking was fine for the 4-door Jeep. It’s covered too, which was great during the couple of afternoon rains that occurred. I did need a 3-pt turn to get out of once or twice. No biggie whatsoever. Beats on paying resort parking costs or searching for somewhere on a road to park.
Two ceiling fans help move the air and the window ac unit near the bed cools the afternoon heat just fine. Plenty of nice utensils and cooking items, though I didn’t bother cooking (too many good places to eat near by). The pool was quite nice to come back too after a day on the beach.
Hi Laurence & Erica,
Thank you for your great support! We loved having you to stay, although I know it was mostly a working vacation. A thought is to come back for a full visit for yourselves next time!
Perfect Place For Our Mother/Daughter Retreat
My daughter flew into Honolulu from NZ and I, from Oregon, for a mother/daughter week. Lanikai is just outside Kahlua Town. We had no car, but the bus system is fantastic and took us everywhere ($2.75 all day pass, $2.00 senior all day pass), with the bus stop being only 1/2 block from our rental. Downtown Kailua is about 2.5 miles from the rental and has many shops/grocery stores/restaurants plus the Kailua Town beach which is hugely popular and especially busy on weekends. Arrive in Lanikai and you drive through a lovely neighborhood with beautiful homes and beach. The beach is accessed through many coves along the main road. As beach parking is more limited in the Lanikai neighborhood, the beach is busy, but less crowded. Our studio rental was part of a family home, and totally private. Teresa was a wonderful host, explaining the bus, giving restaurant recommendations, tide information. The queen bed was very comfortable, and my daughter said the daybed (with trundle) was comfortable, as well. The kitchen was well equipped. We chose to bring some prepared food back from Whole Foods so as to get on with our day, instead of cooking. The bathroom was generous in size, shower had good water pressure, and there was also a washer/dryer. Internet reception was very good, and television had many channels from which to choose. The studio had deck off the kitchen where I had my morning coffee and listened to the birds. Beach chairs were there for us, on the deck, and beach towels were also provided. The home had a lap pool (which is the feature photo of the home) surrounded by Teresa's carefully tended garden. Would we stay here again? Absolutely! We loved walking through the neighborhood and into town. My daughter was able to snorkel on the Lanikai beach. I loved waking early, walking down through the many coves, and taking photos of the sunrise. We were in paradise,, and we can't thank Teresa enough for sharing her property with us! Karen Hayes
