About the Property
Studio, 1 Bath (Sleeps 2.5)
Located in a lovely beachside town, Kailua By The Sea is a second floor detached studio with a private entrance and lanai (balcony). The room is designed for relaxing and getting into an aloha state of mind.
A five-minute stroll around the corner (200 yards or 0.1 mile) takes you to our secluded beach access on Kailua Beach; the center of Kailua town is less than a mile away (0.7 miles).
Newly constructed in 2013, the 485 sq. ft. room takes advantage of the trade winds but has a split system A/C and a ceiling fan to keep you cool when the trade winds stop blowing. Insulated walls and double-glazed windows keep the room quiet. No one lives beneath the studio and there are no other rental units on the property.
Rinse off the sand in the spacious shower which uses a heat pump water heater. Dimmable LED lights set the mood for a relaxing evening.
Sleep comes easy on the comfortable king size bed which has a top quality memory foam mattress. Just like in the best resorts, everything that touches your skin, including the duvet cover, is freshly laundered when guests depart.
Enjoy indoor or outdoor dining on the lanai. Prepare simple meals in the kitchenette equipped with a microwave, toaster oven and electric skillet. A private bbq grill is also provided for guest use. A 40-inch TV, in-room WIFI (high speed) and designated off-street parking are also included.
The room will be stocked with a few complimentary items for your first morning's breakfast.
We have two bikes for rent. There is no washer/dryer for guest use but there are self-service laundromats and dry cleaners located nearby.
We live on-site but we value your privacy. Knock on our door if you need anything or if you want to 'talk story.' We love chatting with our guests and sharing our knowledge of our beautiful island home.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.
Paying with a credit card on VRBO protects your payment for up to $10,000 against listing fraud. We recommend completing your booking on VRBO.Learn more

Take your morning coffee to the beach and watch the sunrise. Spend the day frolicking at the beach! Bodyboard, kayak, windsurf, kiteboard or stand-up paddle on Kailua Bay. If you are lucky, a turtle might swim up to you! When you need a break from ocean activities, visit Kawainui Marsh, the largest wetland in Hawaii. Several endangered waterfowl live in the marsh. (Birds are most active early morning or a little before sunset.) There are also several hikes in the Kailua-Lanikai area. Browse the beach-chic boutiques and try the restaurants in Kailua town. Take a long walk on the beach at sunset and say hello to the locals. When you are ready for the hustle and bustle of Waikiki, take a 30-minute drive over the mountain. All other major tourist attractions on the island are no more than an hour's drive from beautiful, laid back Kailua.
About the owner: We are long-time Kailua residents. We are an ocean-loving family that enjoys traveling, photography, stargazing, kayaking, bowling (younger son) and frisbee (dog*). Our well-behaved sweet dog hangs out with us (and in the back yard) and loves the beach as much as we do!
Why the Owner Chose Kuulei Tract, Kailua, HI, USA:
We wanted a home by the sea in Kailua. We love that we can walk to one of the most beautiful beaches in the world in under five minutes. The beach at night is also magical - with sand crabs scuttling about and moonlight reflecting on the water. We built the studio primarily for family and friends who visit, but we also enjoy sharing it with people from all over the world. Several of our guests have left a penny behind with a wish to return. We hope you will stay with us and enjoy our beautiful corner of the world.
The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
If you like the aloha spirit, sandy feet and the simple beach life, you will enjoy our studio, Kailua by the Sea! We are professional photographers, so if you are getting married on Oahu or would like some beautiful beach portraits to share with friends and family, inquire about our awesome guest rates.
