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!

Clean and comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

Loved the location, the Lanai. And especially loved the use of the bikes. We biked to the beach, the farmers market, the bookstore, to restaurants for lunch and even to Target and the post office. Everything was close by!

The place was clean and comfortable! Thankyou!!!

great Hawaiian welcome

  • 5 of 5

If coziness, view, and location are priorities for you, then this is your spot. We wanted a quiet neighborhood location to access the Kailua area beaches -- since we were exploring most of the time -- and we found it here. The spacious lanai gives the upstairs location above the host below, an expansive feel. We loved our morning coffee and evening libation on the lanai with views of the mountains behind. Ron is a cordial and welcoming host; the property felt classic Hawaiian; and we look forward to our return. Mahalo, Ron!

Great location, quiet and plenty of room for 2-3!

  • 5 of 5

I rented from Ron for a few days while I was house hunting for something permanent. The studio is secluded and has everything you need and plenty of space. Everything to enjoy in Kailua is walking distance! Highly recommend his place and I will definitely keep it in mind for when I have visitors in town that want their own place! Thank you Ron!

Wonderful location and I loved the bikes and boogie boards

We had a wonderful relaxing time. Went to the beach daily and then could walk to town for food. Also. We appreciated all the work the owners are doing to help the environment.
