About The Owner

Hi, We have lived in Kailua since 2003 and remodeled the house in 2004 to include this very nice studio apartment which had previously been a long term rental. We are looking forward to meeting new people and hope they can enjoy our little piece of paradise.

The Owner purchased this studio in 2001

Why The Owner chose East Oahu

We purpose built the attached studio so we would have a well built property to share on the rental market. In the past we have had it as a long term lease but want to start to try sharing it as a vacation rental.

What makes this studio unique

Large, well maintained and stylishly appointed studio with easy access/parking that offers a great Hawaii location.

Very clean and well-appointed efficiency unit in a quiet neighborhood.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed how clean, updated and confortable everything was. Lot's of amenities and very quiet. Many windows for a cool breeze and AC for those few times when it was a little warm. Bed was a little saggy in middle but overall confortable. Great tv and internet. The location was perfect while visiting family who live 2 blocks away. Short distance to beach, Pill Box hike, Kailua farmer's market, restaurants and shopping. On-site property managers were available but we didn't need anything. We will definitely book again!

A delightful stay!

  • 5 of 5

I have been to Oahu many times and this time decided I would stay in Kailua. What a find this little gem was. The pictures barely do it justice....everything has been well-planned and well-thought out and appointed beautifully. The location is wonderful, 5 driving minutes to Kailua and Lanikai beaches and 5 minutes to town. It was always so nice to come home to such a comfortable studio after a day at the beach or sightseeing. The kitchen was great, too, and I appreciated the full-size refrigerator. Everything you could need was supplied. Ill be back for sure! Diana, Los Angeles

Clean, bright, airy studio in quiet Kailua, close to beaches, stores everything you need.

  • 5 of 5

Excellent location. Excellent studio. Excellent hosts. We were so pleased with the accommodations. The studio is comfortable, clean and stocked with so much. Big screen tv, Netflix, a binder full of great info, etc. So thoughtful and helpful! If you stay here, I highly recommending checking in first, before you go to the store like we did. We really didn't need half the things we purchased. There is a closet full of goodies to use outdoors. Our hosts were friendly and flexible. We would definitely return here again! Thank you so much!

Perfect retreat- better than described!

  • 5 of 5

This studio was the perfect retreat for two weeks in Kailua visiting family, friends, and our newborn grandson! The layout of the studio is great and the decor pleasant and tastefully Hawaiian. Both the kitchen and bathroom are very well stocked! The neighborhood is very quiet, easily accessed with a convenient parking space right by the studio door. A great experience- comfortable bed, big screen smart TV, new AC, sharp kitchen knives and picturesque shower - are on the top of our favorites! Also, the owners were easy to work with and easily accessible - a very important plus!

Best designed and furnished unit we've ever rented (over 25 years of travel rental experience).

  • 5 of 5

The owners describe the unit exactly: it has a good view inland of the Windward Mountains which are lovely, pointy and very, very green. Short drive to downtown Kailua (5 minutes or less) and to the gorgeous Kailua beaches (7 to 10 minutes). Surprisingly short drive to key areas of Honolulu: airport 25 min.; Chinatown 25 min.; Waikiki 35 min.

Unit itself is lovely with a complete kitchen, glorious bathroom, comfy bed and living/dining areas. Huge flat-screen TV with full cable and Netflix. Good internet access. Washer/dryer. Small but adequate balcony.

Neighborhood is residential and very quiet except for about 30 minutes in the morning 8 to 8:30 and afternoons 3 to 3:30 when kids are walking to and from their high school. Didn't bother us at all and the kids are respectful, not rowdy (we were often taking little neighborhood walks in the afternoons).

Best restaurants in Kailua: Baci Bistro for Italian, Lemon Grass for Thai, Uahi Island Grill for California cuisine styled local ingredients, and the Kalapawai Deli & Cafe for sandwiches and picnic style food.

Will definitely return here for future visits to Oahu (we live on the Big Island and need regular visits to the "big city" life).

Finally, owners were very friendly and responsive to our questions, but also respected our privacy so much that we rarely encountered them which was almost a shame since they are lovely, lively people.
