Private Peaceful and Functional

Aloha! Hola. I am just about to check out today and wanted to positively rate my stay. The location worked out really well for me to access the beach and family in both the Windward side and for events in Honolulu for the arrival of the Hokulea. I'd stay again! Malia

What a great experience!

  • 5 of 5

It was everything we expected for a "Homeaway!" Private, quiet, close to everything we wanted to do. Most mornings I walked five minutes to the beach for sunrise--I took a hundred or more photos over the week--followed by coffee and a yogurt bowl at Kalapawai Market.

Downtown Kailua is just a few blocks the other direction with all types of restaurants, grocery stores, boutiques and services.

The unit was clean and well-stocked with everything we needed.

Off-street parking is definitely a bonus.

This is our third trip to Kailua, but the first where we have had to find our own accommodations. We usually stay with our daughter.

The weather this trip was particularly hot and humid, but the windows, fans and air-conditioning helped keep this unit comfortable.

The lanai was a great place to relax and enjoy the mountain view.

If you want a quiet location away from the non-stop activity in Waikiki, this is definitely the place to consider.

We will be back again!

Owner's Response: Tom and Gina were just wonderful people. We were so happy that they had a great time enjoying themselves and yet had time to relax at home and enjoy the mountain view. Thanks for gracing us with your presence. Aloha!

Conveniently located, quiet, roomy and comfortable.

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I were very pleased with this studio apartment. It's close to the ocean and our favorite little market. We didn't need to cook or eat meals there, but we were very happy to have dishes and glassware, a refrigerator and microwave for our use. Access to a washer and drier was also a real plus. A nice touch we would have liked to take advantage of, was to have bikes and beach gear available, too. This was a quick family trip, but we'll schedule more time for play next time. We will definitely recommend this unit to our friends. In fact, we already have! Mahalo!

Perfect Kailua location

  • 5 of 5

This property is located a short walking distance from beautiful Kailua beach and Kailua town. You could almost spend your entire vacation without a car in this very quiet, safe neighborhood. You will probably want to drive to other popular Oahu areas, so there is plenty of parking at this property off street. The property is completely furnished with everything and anything you would need for a fun Hawaii vacation including: all linen, towels, kitchen utensils, microwave, refrigerator, beach towels and chairs, washer & dryer, full bathroom, and AC. I will definitely return to this wonderful property next time I visit Hawaii.

Close to beach and clean

  • 5 of 5

Super close to beach, the providing of beach towels, chairs, umbrellas, bikes, coolers etc. is awesome because you have everything you would need for the beach at home! It's very quiet, we were the only occupants during our stay. If you're wanting close proximity and provided amenities this is the place for you! It is not updated by any means, appliances, bedding etc. but is VERY clean! We would definitely stay again and hope to bring my in-laws to stay in the room next to us! Thank you Lu & Ron!
