Just Right

  • 5 of 5

Perfect home base for an Oahu stay! You can do a quiet hideaway in Kailua with shops, restaurants, and beach all a five minute drive away, or if you're feeling adventurous can go see and do all the island sights and activities.

Good for what we needed

  • 4 of 5

Small and cozy, but if you are just looking for a room in a nice town it works. We didn't spend much time there because we enjoyed the island. Don't plan on cooking anything too complicated, but eggs and cereal for breakfast, pack sandwiches for lunch, and eat easy dinners or eat out and enjoy leftovers.

We loved this place because it worked for what we needed. The only annoying thing was the barking dog next door. But again, don't spend more time than you need at this place and everything is worth it. I would strongly recommend this place and if we make it back to Oahu it will be on the list of places to stay.

Small, quiet, comfortable, & clean with an excellent price

  • 5 of 5

As others have noted, this is the perfect place to sleep, shower, and leave your stuff to explore the area around Kailua. In fact, this was our basecamp for visiting most parts of the island. We didn't find the drives long at all. The room had all the amenities we needed, and James was completely accommodating for our minor requests. We highly recommend this property for a couple with simple tastes.
