Welcome to our new studio in Kahalu'u. This is brand new construction completed January of 2014 with many high-end finishes including: Full kitchen with granite countertops, ice-maker fridge, tall 9' ceilings, bullnose corners, beautiful mahogany trim, luxurious stained concrete floors, travertine tile bathroom with walk-in travertine and granite shower. This Studio has partial ocean views and access to the ocean for crabbing or kayaking and snorkeling in the bay. Up the road is better for hanging out on the beach. Another highlight of this Studio is the two big patio doors look out over a 50' by 100' lawn great for kids to play on.
We are a young family doing our best to create a paradise here in Hawaii. I work for a local bank and my wife is a personal chef and a mom. We feel very lucky to live at this home in Kahalu'u in Hawaii.
Hillary purchased this studio in 2013
The tropical climate takes it's toll on homes in Hawaii. Even a home that is a few years old can appear much older here. This home is brand new and doesn't have any of the issues associated with older homes. This home also has the advantage of having a contemporary floor plan, recessed lighting, tall ceilings, and other modern home features.
Proximity to the ocean, the north shore, Kailua, Kualoa Ranch, the Polynesian Cultural Center are all great benefits. The large yard and new construction with contemporary feel are also big benefits.
If you're looking for a place to stay outside of the hustle and bustle of Honolulu, then this is your place. You will get beautiful views of the Koolau Mountains on your way there. There was nothing extra we needed, as Hillary and her husband Shad accomodated for everything. Calm, relaxing, and a perfect place to wind down in after a day hiking, or at the beach. Would love to stay there again.
My husband and I have stayed here multiple times. It is clean, well appointed, convenient, and safe! We love the location- about 30 minutes to all our favorite spots on the North Shore. The owners are very kind and attentive to all of our questions and and are just so good to work with. We would recommend this place to all of our friends. It is quite affordable as well. We hope to return each year!
My daughter went to grab something that fell under the couch and a bundle of hair mixed with dust and nastiness came out from under the couch. I felt that this place was dirty and needed more attention.
Hillary is great though. Very accomodating. She lives above with her family, so you'll hear them from time to time.
Maison très bien équipée, lit principal super confortable, stationnement directement à la porte. Belle grande cour et accès à l'eau. Tout le nécessaire pour la plage à la disposition des locataires. Un très beau et bon choix!
We stayed with two young kids. The host was very helpful and even gave us some extras for the baby to use. It can get a little loud with the highway so close and the walking upstairs, but easily tolerated. Parking was not a problem. Good food nearby. The only other issue we had was that we paid a cleaning fee, but there was a list of chores to complete as well for checkout.
Kahalu'u is quiet, beautiful and convenient to Honolulu and the North Shore. It is especially close to: Chinaman's Hat (our favorite island to kayak to), Kualoa Ranch (very popular tourist attraction) and endless great beaches. Our favorite kid-friendly beach park is Kahana Bay. It is about eight miles away toward the North Shore. Our favorite bon fire area is in Ka'a'Awa about seven miles away. Ka'a'Awa is also a great area for snorkeling. Driving the other direction, SouthEast to Kaneohe and Kailua, will give you more options for restaurants. Hale'iwa Joe's in Kaneohe is our favorite restaurant. Driving past Kaneohe to Kailua you are rewarded with very beautiful, very popular beaches. Kailua is about 12 miles away.
The nearest grocery store is three miles away. Next to the grocery store are a few small restaurants and a large movie theater. Across the street is Valley of the Temples. Not only is it free, but it's one of the most beautiful places on Oahu. There is a very picturesque Buddhist Temple there with an impressive koi pond complete with small turtles and stunning black geese.
