Delightful accomodation

  • 5 of 5

The studio was ideal for my stay on Oahu. All one could need was available in a lovely garden setting. The location is close to the beach, shops and market. The host were great. I highly recommend this for a peaceful stay.

Great location!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed 10 nights at Michael & Joy's studio and very much enjoyed it. The location is perfect, very quiet and just across the road from the beach. Everything you need is in the apartment including beach gear and a barbecue which we used quite a lot. The outdoor shower is a great touch! Minor issues - the aircon is a bit loud and ineffective (but with the fan we didn't really need to use it), and the kitchen is basic and quite small. Otherwise very comfortable and highly recommended!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review Nic. We are so pleased and delighted that you enjoyed the location, quiet neighborhood, and the additional amenities that our vacation studio had to offer. We are also happy that we were able to provide you an early check-in/late check-out during your stay. The kitchenette is designed for those that wish to limit their time cooking. Therefore, it offers a microwave, coffee maker, blender, toaster, hot plate, and refrigerator. We are also pleased that you were able to enjoy the outdoor grilling with the beautiful weather that we have. Thank you for bringing the AC condition to our attention. If we had known, we could have easily changed it out for a new one during your stay. We will have a new AC installed and it will be be waiting for your use on your next Kailua visit! Much Aloha!

Lovely place with great location

  • 5 of 5

We spent 12 nights here and it was a very good experience. The owners are lovely and from the way the space looks inside and outside, they have an eye for detail and care their guests have a great, comfortable stay. Everything we needed and may have needed was provided, including beach items, a binder with a lot of information, plenty of hangers, detergent next to the washing machine, umbrella, flashlight, picnic basket, coolers, etc... We enjoyed the welcoming basket with coffee, chocolates and fruit. The location is excellent, 5 min walk to the wonderful Kailua beach, 10 min drive to Lanikai beach, and 5 min drive from restaurants, shops. Highly recommended!

Perfect place to stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent 5 nights in this cozy and comfortable studio. On a nice and quiet street just a short walk to Kailua beach park, it was the perfect location for us. Kailua town has lots of options and a very short drive away.

The studio has everything you’ll need for your stay - a kitchenette, spacious bathroom, even an outdoor shower, private lanai and a washer/dryer! I also want to point out how clean the unit is.

The owners, Michael and Joy are wonderful! I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a comfortable place to stay and blend in like a local.

We could not be more happy in our choice.

Michael met us upon are arrival with a warm welcome and showed us the studio.

The studio was spotlessly clean.Well appointed with all we needed and then some.(Beautiful welcome basket with chocolates,fruit ,and cookies)

The studio is very private and quiet. With a great location to the beach.

As our flight left later in the day, Michael accommodated us with a late check out.Which was greatly appreciated.

I would not hesitate to recommend this studio to my family and friends.

We will certainly be back.

Thanks again

Neil & Lindy

Car: recommended

People come from all over the world to visit Kailua's picturesque beaches, great restaurants and wonderful people. Its tight nit community, laid back vibe and uncrowded beaches is what appeals to so many local residence and visitors.

Kailua is full of natural beauty, from the stunning Ko'olau mountain range to the wetlands that provide the perfect setting for our indigenous birds, Kailua Bay is a magnificent place symbolizing the regional quality of the community. With quaint local boutiques full of one of a kinds and unique gifts, clothing, souvenirs and treasures to the extensive range of excellent local cuisine, its easy to see why Kailua Beach and nearby Lanikai have been on the 'Worlds Best Beach' lists by several publishers for many years... Come and Enjoy our paradise!
