Better than Home

  • 5 of 5

We spent a relaxing week here and totally enjoyed our stay! It was better than home since we did not have to do anything other than go to the beach or explore the island. The studio is ocated in a very quiet, safe neighborhood. The host has thought of everything in this studio: toiletries, cooking equipment (dishes, utensils, microwave, grill, fridge, toaster, rice cooker, coffee maker, and hotplate), beach things (towels, boogie boards, chairs, umbrellas, coolers and more). Everything was extremely clean and in good order. One of the nicest beaches on the island is a 5 minute walk from the unit (or an even shorter bike ride using one of the two bikes provided for guest use). The host has information about things to do and where to dine in the local area. We totally enjoyed our stay and appreciated the lovely touches of a variety of snacks and fruit that were provided when we arrived. (One of us was on crutches and appreciated the walk-in shower and the easy access into the unit-no steps).

A little Jewel

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our 2 week stay at Debbie and Daves studio. It is the perfect size for two people. I would highly recommend staying here especially if you want to stay in the Kailua area. The studio is a short walk to the beach. We also enjoyed the chocolates, coffee, bagels, cream cheese and juices that were awaiting us when we checked in!!! If you enjoy biking, bicycles are available for your use as well. Should we return to Oahu, we definitely would stay at Debbie and Daves again!!

Homey comforts, spectacular hosts!

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay in this suite! It was so close to the beach, and the price was very affordable. We made use of the boogie boards, cooler and bicycles. We particularly loved the spacious bathroom and amazing double shower. Had it been warm enough, we would have used the air conditioner more, but did notice how wonderfully quiet it was. Debbie provided lovely welcome treats as well as bagels, coffee and cream. They were very friendly, gracious and accommodating hosts, and being a short term rental host myself, I really appreciated all their thoughtful touches that made our stay all the better!

Exceptional quality, location, and comfort

  • 5 of 5

We loved this property for so many reasons and are eager to write a review to let others know what a wonderful stay this was! First, the place is clean, comfortable, and in a great location. The walk-in closet is huge and easy to quickly unpack for a relaxing stay. The bathroom is so nice and the double shower heads are luxurious. All the dimmer lights in the bathroom and bedroom are really relaxing and make it feel so homey! There is a air conditioning unit which cools the room off quickly and keeps it perfectly comfortable all night long and the black out curtains make for some great sleep (really useful for getting over jet lag). The neighborhood is quiet, clean, friendly, and just a 5 min walk to the beach. The amenities of the apartment are so nice. The kitchenette is really functional and we were able to make green smoothies and eggs for breakfast. The outdoor sink is great for washing up dishes and there is a hose provided for rising off sandy snorkel and beach gear - such a useful feature that we didn't consider before coming to stay.

Debbie is an exceptional host. She always responded to messages promptly and the extras she provides are such a nice touch (E.g. bagels and cream cheese, juice, chocolates) Plus the apartment is stocked with useful items big and small. Besides the beach chairs, towels, snorkel equipment (great quality) and other things listed, there are a host of other small and useful items: safety pins, bug spray, aloe, q-tips, shampoo, paper plates, and drink coolers just to name a few. We really used these small things and it made our stay so comfortable! You don't always remember to bring those things from home!

We felt right at home in Kailua from this comfortable place. We hope to return someday and hope many others enjoy it in the future!!

I would definitely recommend the apartment. However, it is attached to the owner's home, but we still felt like we had our privacy. Just a quick 5 minute walk and you are walking on the beautiful shore of the Pacific. Lot's of restaurants, shopping nearby. Great location if you want to be away of the hustle and bustle of Honolulu area. Still a short drive to all the attractions. We booked our Pearl Harbor tour through Aloha tours. Great idea to do so you won't need to bother with driving in the busy traffic. Deb had lots to offer to assist with activities i.e. beach accessories, bicycles, snorkeling gear. She had chocolates waiting for us and even a bottle of wine to celebrate my husband's 60th birthday. The apartment was clean and literally had THE MOST comfortable bed I've ever slept in away from home. Thanks Deb for making our stay comfortable.

Well priced property in a convenient location

  • 5 of 5

This is a very well presented studio apartment with a surprisingly large bathroom (twin hand basins, double shower) and a walk-in dressing room with plenty of shelves and hanging space. The apartment is unusually well stocked with towels, toiletries, beach items, two bicycles, paper towel, soap, etc. Parking is under cover. Property is located in a quiet suburban street with a short walk to a beautiful beach. There are not any views from this studio apartment. An outside sink with hot water is provided for washing clothes and dishes, etc. Recommend the very picturesque Royal Hawaiin Golf Club for experienced golfers and Buzz's restaurant for lunch or dinner, both less than 15 minutes away by car.

We would not have any hesitation in recommending this property to others.

Car: recommended

Kailua is located on the Windward side of Oahu. Kailua's main attraction is its world-renowned beach, voted as one of the top ten beaches in the world. Other areas of interest in Kailua are the Mokulua Islands, Kawainui Marshland, Mount Olomana, ancient Hawaiian sites, many parks, playgrounds, unique businesses, restaurants, and boutiques.

Kailua Bay is protected by a reef which provides an awesome playground for swimming, kayaking, paddle boarding, sailing, windsurfing, snorkeling, body boarding and surfing. There are also several golf courses and tennis facilities nearby.

Kailua is just 20 minutes from Honolulu International Airport and downtown Honolulu and 30 minutes to Waikiki. Kaneohe Marine Corps Air Station is just 5 minutes away. There is easy and convenient access to the H-3 freeway, Pali Highway and Likelike Highway.
