Overview

About the property

Studio By The Pool With Full Bath & Kitchenette. Sleeps 2. Powered by the sun!

This quiet 400-square foot cottage sits by the blue-tiled pool and offers the perfect resting spot after a full day of activities or a sleepy day on the beach. It offers a full bath and kitchenette with full-sized refrigerator, microwave, and toaster oven.

The studio is detached from the owner-occupied main house and has a private side entrance and dedicated parking space. Come and go as you please. Guests have full use of the pool, pool deck, and private lanai for outdoor dining. Wireless internet and cable TV/BluRay provided.

Less than two minutes walking to the end of the street will bring you to world famous Kailua Beach, which is reached via a private gate. And a few minutes driving brings you to downtown Kailua, where you can enjoy dining, shopping, and the unique feel of one of the last true beach towns.

All of our electricity and hot water comes from the sun!

About Bob

We came to Hawaii in 1998 with the military and decided to stay. We love to travel and are happy to open our Kailua studio to fellow travelers from around the world.

Bob purchased this cottage in 2003

Why Bob chose East Oahu

When this property came on the market in 2003, we immediately saw its potential and had to move fast. The cottage was completed in 2007 as the final step in our multi-phase renovation.

What makes this cottage unique

Relax with zero environmental impact. Our property gets 100% of its electricity and hot water from the sun!

Guestbook comments from the owner

From the time we made our reservation to our arrival and our stay, it couldn't have been more smooth and enjoyable. The cottage and property was beautiful and was a piece of paradise making our stay exactly what we were hoping. Standing in the driveway, you could see the beach entrance and the water just at the end of the street. After being out on the beach or out visiting family and Kailua, coming back to the cottage and jumping in the pool was heaven. Bob was so so nice and accommodating - true Aloha spirit. We were visiting Kailua for a family reunion and wedding so I actually had family staying at other properties in Kailua and told them all about this cottage for maybe their future visits to Kailua. I will definitely recommend being a guest of Bob's to my friends and family on the mainland.

Great property

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was everything 2 people could need. The pool is wonderful and always warm. The beach is a 1/2 a block away. This is a very clean and open beach area. During our experience over a holiday weekend; the beach was nowhere near crowded since, it is more of a neighborhood beach. We couldn't have enjoyed our time in Kailua more.

Best deal on the beach

  • 5 of 5

The guest house was perfect and private. And very well appointed. Bob thought of so many details - cooler, beach chairs, towels, boogie boards, extra linens, lots of clothes hangers. The walk to the beach was quick down the lane. Too close to the beach for such a low price. We will try to get this place again if we come back to HI

Perfect location and relaxing house★★★★★

  • 5 of 5

The best location and relaxing house. ★★★★★We had a good time.Thank you for everything. Arigato Bob san.(^-^)

最高なロケーションと雰囲気、ハワイの空気を肌に感じることが出来、最高な時間を過ごすことが出来ました。 特に海までは歩いて3分でプライベート感があり最高です。

場所はGoogleマップを使用し事前に調べていたこともあり迷わず到着することができました。

駐車場に車て到着すると、オーナーのBobさんが笑顔で迎えてくれました。また、オーナーのBobさんはとても親切です。何でも笑顔で相談、説明をしてくれました。

私は毎朝、日の出とともにカイルアの海辺をランニングし朝食☕🍞🌄を食べ、ハワイの空気を感じ最高の時間を過ごすことが出来ました。少々、ヤモリの出没もありますが可愛く思えました。(虫が苦手な方はダメかもですが)

立地的にも、車でカイルアタウンまで5分位で不便は感じませんでした。

ハワイでの最高な時間を過ごすことができ、私達のお気に入りになりました。

※多少の英語力とレンタカーがあれば問題はないかと思います。★★★★★です(*^^*)

Owner's Response: Takeshi san- It was a pleasure to have you and lovely Chisako with us last week. Thank you for the kind words, and thank you to Google translate for helping me to read what you wrote. I'm happy that our location so close to the beach made it convenient for your morning runs. Yes, it is good to have a car....it makes getting to town so much more convenient. We hope we will see you again! Fondly- Bob

A perfect, private place! A gracious and thoughtful host! A very short walk to an amazing beach!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have been happier. Bob had everything ready for our arrival. And, having a completely separate bungalow with a private entrance, steps from the lovely saltwater pool, was a great way to spend our first week as husband and wife. He had everything we needed to make ourselves at home - grill, outdoor lounges by the pool, beach chairs, boogie boards, etc.

There really isn't anything we would have wanted, that wasn't already there! Thanks, Bob, for your hospitality!
