Very airy and clean studio!

  • 5 of 5

The owners were respectful and helpful. The studio was immaculate! Love the design. The kitchen was well equipped. Beach towels, beach chairs and snorkel equipment were available for their guests to use. Guests need a vehicle to get to restaurants and the beaches.

Wonderful place

  • 5 of 5

The studio is a great place with beautiful, relaxing mountain views. Just as pictured. Very clean, stocked with everything needed to cook meals, beach gear, etc. It was like coming home. We had complete privacy and felt safe and secure. We loved our time there. Will definitely book again on our next vacation. Todd and Elaina, thanks for making the studio available.

Perfectly appointed; perfectly comfortable, and spacious

  • 5 of 5

This studio apartment was perfect for our five-day visit -- and would have been for longer too! We enjoyed having all the kitchen amenities and being able to make breakfast every morning before we set off on our adventures and the occasional dinner at home. I'm a tea drinker, and many of the other places we looked at only included a microwave and coffee maker -- not conducive to making a nice cup of tea.

Everything was immaculately clean and ready for us when we arrived. The proximity to shopping and other Kailua activities was appreciated. One of my husband's "must-haves" was air conditioning, and we never even used it -- the breezes flowing through the many windows kept the flat cool and comfortable; and those windows keep the flat light and airy, with plenty of coverings for privacy. This studio has a GREAT bathroom and shower -- and a fantastic kitchen for a property of its size.

If I had to come up with one, the only "drawback" or "negative" I would be able to come up with is its location, which is not on the beach, so it's a long walk if you want to walk there -- BUT nothing is far away on Oahu, and there are plenty of buses if you choose that route , so this is NOT a problem -- and if you are adventuring to other parts of the island, it has easy access to highways to get you out and about without having to drive through town traffic. Location should NOT deter anyone considering this lovely, comfortable studio.

Todd and Elaina have a great sense of style, and have created a lovely retreat, offering good advice on beaches, beach parking, restaurants, etc. They have also provided everything anyone would need for a great beach vacation: towels, boogie boards, sand chairs, backpacks, etc.

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 Pōhākupu

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.
