Guestbook comments from the manager

So far Kailua is our favorite place we've been to in Hawaii. The beaches are amazing. The food is amazing. The town is really cool and not overrun with tourists. Laura's Studio was clean and beautiful and the view was like a matte painting from a movie. The unit had its own entrance and gave us all the privacy we needed. The bed was huge and super comfy. The room was bright and cheery. The shower was awesome. We had a driveway spot for our jeep. Laura is really nice and she was always closeby in case we needed anything. She hooked us up with a sweet discount at a local kayak and paddle board rental shop. It was awesome! We were sad to leave Kailua. We will definitely be returning and wouldn't hesitate to rent with Laura again!

This was the perfect place for our family of four to spend time in Kailua (including 2 young adults). Jacqui and Jeff have created a beautiful 'Tropical Hideaway'. Located in a quiet neighbourhood but just two minutes to the main highway leading to south coast area, north shore or 20 minutes on the Pali Highway to Waikiki. As well 3 minutes to Kailua or Lanikai beach. Great 'Pill Box' hike, grocery and dining options literally around the corner. The studio room is large and clean and beautifully decorated and so well equipped just add your own food! As well they have thought of and supplied everything you need to take advantage of all the island has to offer. If it's not here, you don't need it! The room and lanai is even more beautiful than the pictures show. Even though the weather wasn't the greatest we were still able to enjoy our meals outside and down times relaxing on the covered lanai. As I am writing this at home amidst another Canadian deep freeze, I am so missing those evenings! Missing the morning birds, the flowers, the geckos in the yard and the sound of the ocean in the night. Jacqui, Jeff and their daughter were very attentive hosts, it felt like staying with family (or better!). We all agreed, we would stay here again.

True Hawaiian Hospitality

  • 5 of 5

My husband, teenage daughter and I all enjoyed this lovely home very much. You feel like you are truly in Hawaii with the perfectly designed and decorated interior and the beautiful tropical outdoor space. Jacqui and Jeff were the perfect hosts. This home is well stocked with everything you could possibly need and has all of the gear needed for exploring and time on the beach. We really enjoyed the lanai and yard, the pool and the outdoor grill. We loved kayaking on the canal! This place is true Hawaiian gem!!

Aloha and mahalo to Jaqui and Jeff. We have just returned from a family trip to Kailua, our first to anywhere in Hawaii. We so appreciated the clean comfortable space both inside and out, the quiet and laid back feel, the acces to sporting equipment (kayaks, boogie boards, water shoes, snorkel gear, SUP, coolers and chairs for the beach) - everything. And the beds are comfy too.

Jaqui herself is friendly and warm as well as virtually invisible... we often felt like we had the whole place to ourselves even though they were home.

The canal can’t be beat, a fun way to spend the evening kayaking. Or sitting under the lanai while the kids had a final dip in the pool.

The outdoor food space is good, well stocked and set up, that said we never used it. We were able to get by using the smaller inside space which was a personal choice based on our scheduling and not about the spaces themselves

This place was perfect for our family of 4

Ideal getaway for a couple or small family.

  • 5 of 5

Visiting Oahu in mid October can be tricky, especially when the trade winds are in.. But, the weather aside we had a very comfortable and pleasurable stay. Our hostess was very sweet and accommodating. Many different items were available for us to use at our leisure including: fins snorkel gear and boogie boards. The location was absolutely perfect with a Safeway and Starbucks just around the corner, who could ask for more? The property was clean, and the Linens were fresh. The only thing this location was lacking was a sink to do dishes in that we were able to manage with the small bathroom sink. I hope you have a wonderful stay here...we did. Mahalo-

The room and property are lovely - just like in the pictures! Jacqui is a great host!

We loved the ambience of the Aloha guest cottage. The lanai area is spacious, opening onto a beautiful garden and pool. The garden and pool made it perfect for a four-year-old - so much better than being cooped up in a high-rise hotel room. We were able to barbecue in the evenings and enjoy sitting around the pool. Kailua is far from the bustle and crowds of Waikiki - a real Hawaiian beach town - and has one of Oahu's best beaches - white sand, clear waters, gentle waves. And Jacqui provides just about everything needed to take full advantage of the setting: kayaks, boogie boards, snorkels and fins, beach towels, even a small cooler or two. And it is an easy drive to explore the north shore or the glamour of Waikiki.

Awesome vacation in Kailua

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Aloha Tropical Hideaway from Mar 27 to Apr 4, 2017. This was our second stay in this vacation rental and it is our most favourite one on Oahu. It was so relaxing and we enjoyed every minute of it. It pushed all right buttons for us. The rental is attached to the main house that is a residence of the owners. The owners are very pleasant and helpful if you need something. Otherwise you barely see them and you have plenty of privacy. You can use a huge, covered patio, a swimming pool, and a backyard. The backyard is right beside a canal where we were feeding fish or we took kayaks and paddled to Kailua beach and back. The rental is quiet and at night you can hear wind in palm tree tops and birds singing in the morning. The room is cool enough and we never felt hot. If you feel like it you can also use a ceiling fan. It has a king bed, a sofa queen bed and a single bed. It was very comfortable for us - 2 adults and 2 children. It has a rather small fridge and only outdoor kitchen. You can use an outside BBQ with a side burner as a stove and all necessary kitchen supplies are in a cupboard in the studio. The kitchen sink is also outside. Cooking outside actually adds to the overall romantic character of a stay. When we go next time to Oahu we will definitely try to book it again.
