A Large queen size 4 poster bed, with a sitting area and dining area.

Residence has its own private entrance, private patio with umbrella table, parking and a large yard. The studio is located at the beach on a private lane and has a private gateway to Kailua Beach (maybe less than a minute)
We were so fortunate to have picked your 'Monet Suite' for our first stay in Hawaii. We felt very much at home in your lovely garden accommodation -especially after your warm welcome our first afternoon. Your location close to Kailua Beach was wonderful and we were able to find highway routes to all parts of the island quite readily.Should we return to Oahu, we hope to be able to stay with you againBruce and Mary (Toronto, Canada)
It was in a private neighborhood. Had a yard with stone walls, table and chairs, grill. Along with easy walk to access to the beach and local store.
Also had use of beach chairs, beach umbrella, snorkeling gear, etc.
Would definitely come back!!
The Kailua location of the vacation property was ideal: It was away from the traffic and congestion of Honolulu, and yet it was close enough to conveniently allow us to drive there for the day to visit/tour the sites.
We were so thrilled to enjoy the Monet Studio with its perfect amount of space for our little get away. It was clean and nicely decorated. We enjoyed our breakfasts at the outside table with our fresh Papaya and Pineapple! Parking was so convenient and a true bonus, as many places do not offer parking at all. Imagine walking just out the gate, across the little road, through the gate to the beach access and just a few feet down the path is the most beautiful beach in the world!! Joanie is a very lovely host and we enjoyed chatting with her as we were able. She shared her beautiful private pool with us, and although we didn't take a dip, the poolside area is so tranquil and is nicely landscaped. The Kalapawai market is just about a block away and a great place to pick up a morning muffin and coffee for our sunrise walk on the beach. Many other great things are available within walking distance. We will return here as we are able - the savings account is already begun!!
We enjoyed our stay at Joanie's house in the Monet room! It was nicely appointed, comfortable bed, and plenty of towels. She made sure to provide an extra fan and cooler per our request because it doesn't have AC, and we prefer a cooler room at night. Being that it was January, it was cooler in the evenings and with the windows open and fans going we were comfortable. The shower has great water pressure, nice and bright and big. The bathroom itself is on the small side, not much room to put your things. We used the dresser right outside the door to put our toiletry bags. The mini kitchen has a small fridge with freezer, toaster oven, blender, coffee maker and some utensils. There isn't a kitchen sink however, so we had to use the small bathroom sink to rinse dishes. And the dining table is what we used for prep space. There is a nice private patio with a bbq provided outside . We also appreciated the outdoor shower to rinse our sandy feet and legs off. This room is great for a 2-4 day stay. If you're looking for a longer stay she has another unit that has AC, has a larger bathroom and kitchen. For a longer stay we'd rent that. Joanie is a delightful host, very helpful and gracious. She provides plentiful beach gear, cooler, chairs, towels, boogie boards, and even had a few snorkel sets. The location to the beach access is steps away, across the street to one of the best if not the best beaches in all of Oahu. Around the corner is the popular Kalapawei market for great coffee in the morning, and a deli for lunch to go. It's also really close to a few surf shops, and shaved ice store and the center of town is a 2 min drive. Buzz's famous steak and seafood restaurant is also really close by, don't miss the salad bar and Calamari dinner! We will definitely be back!
A pleasure to stay here. My wife and I needed a place for 4 days after a week in Maui and this cottage was fantastic. A very short walk to on of the best beaches in the world! Joanie was very helpful. IK've stayed in Kailua a few times so no directions needed but she was more than helpful with any questions we had. We'd love to come back and stay here again! Hopefully for more than 4 days though!
My wife and I stayed here for a week to celebrate a milestone birthday. Everything said about this place is true -- clean, quiet, comfortable, and a 3-minute walk to the beach. It's a great couple's retreat. You avoid the crowds and congestion of Waikiki, but Honolulu is just a short drive away. There's lots to see on Oahu, and Kailua is a great base to explore from.
