What makes this studio unique

Just a short walk to the Famous Kailua Beach, a 5 minute drive to Kailua town for shopping, and public transportation is two blocks away.

Morning walks on Kailua beach are always a great way to start your day, and if you are an early bird you can see the sun rise, its truely amazing, its paradise.

  • 5 of 5

It was Halloween, so Caren met us dressed as a cat with a tail also. She was a polite, kind, and a very friendly hostes. The property is near everything you need and has all you need inside. Target store and Starbucks coffee are 5 minutes down the road. View of beautiful scenary at a short distance in a very friendly neighborhood.

Met Our Needs and More

  • 5 of 5

Always a relief to find a vacation rental that does not disappoint! We have been coming to Hawaii (Kailua specifically) for many years, and always stay with our family there. This time, unfortunately, we were there because of the death of my sister and had to scramble to find a place to stay, since their house was full. This little studio was just right for our visit...a private escape to sleep and rest from the difficult tasks at hand. It is as other reviewers have stated: clean, comfortable, quiet and privately situated on a nice street. Parking could not have been closer or more perfect. The owners were super friendly without being intrusive. We really appreciated the many thoughtful touches: lamps w/built-in outlets, a folding table w/2 chairs for extra function, a great ceiling fan & AC unit, good shower, toilet paper upon arrival (no small thing, haha!), beach equipment and a light outside the private entrance...really nice when you're gone from morning 'til night.

We looked around and never saw extra towels, but managed fine. We didn't have need to cook, so washing dishes in the one tiny bathroom sink in the unit was not an issue for us. (there is great take-out & delivery in Kailua, by the way) If you're like us, coming from many time zones away, and need to "de-lag" or sleep late, this unit would benefit from curtains with a black out lining...when the sun comes up, you will too. As another reviewer mentioned, the TV is an older square tv with a low-def picture. For our purposes there, these were not problems. I might suggest a kitchen waste basket next to (or inside) the kitchen as not to fill up the one in the bathroom many times. However, the important things to us were in place, not the least of which was proximity to our Kailua family and walking distance to the best beach in the world. Many mahalos to Dennis & Caren for providing an excellent escape!

Owner's Response: I am so glad you found our unit and it worked out well. Sorry we didn’t get to talk much during your visit. Very sorry for your loss. We have bath towels, beach towels and sheets inside the wooden chest that is between armoire and side table. We have outside the studio a large garbage can and recycle can for just your unit. We have future plans of small upgrades to the studio.

Very pleasant stay. The space was everything (and more) that was stated and shown in the photos. Clean, well kept with plenty of towels and gas in the grill. The proprietors were friendly and accommodating. We definitively would stay there again and highly recommend it!!!

An unusual stay

  • 5 of 5

Most people travel to Oahu for sunshine and beaches. I live on neighboring Kauai, and as for many people who live on the neighbor islands, we come to Oahu for the medical care. I decided to have Gastric Bypass surgery in Kailua and needed to stay nearby for 4-5 days after being released from the hospital. I called Caren and explained in advance and she was very welcoming and accepting. The ohana unit was lovely, comfortable, quiet and perfect for me. Most important was the bed and bath and both were great. You are part of the house, but completely separate with even a small separate outdoor patio. I used the A/C on the one hot day and it worked perfectly. If there is one suggestion, maybe an upgrade of the TV and DVD player, they were pretty old and would not play the DVD's I brought.

But most important in a situation like this is the help and attitude of the owners. I promised Caren she would not need to take care of me or my needs, but I had a little complication and needed paramedic help. It was not an emergency and they did not use their siren, but I called Caren just so she knew they would be coming to the house. She thanked me then went outside to meet the paramedics and show them to the entrance to the unit. It was just right.

Thank you Caren, for your ho'okipa. Next time I stay, it will be for fun! David

Great Escape

We enjoyed our stay. The suite is the perfect size for a couple. The bed was super comfy. Very quiet neighborhood. Great location in Kailua. Close to town, the beach and quick drive for sightseeing.
