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.

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!

Fantastic private oasis!

  • 5 of 5

Mahalo, Bob and Roni! It was so great to come back to home base after our busy days. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Kailua; your place made it that much more special and memorable. We had everything we needed and more. We also used the cooler everyday ensuring we always had cold beverages while out and about! Really loved the warm and inviting pool, that we used daily!! The lanai provided an excellent place to relax and enjoy our meals.

The short walk, literally only steps, to the beach through your exclusive and gorgeous neighborhood was truly the cherry on top!

We will miss turning down the road headed to "our" cottage.

Mahalo again for all of your aloha and hospitality! Malama pono.

A hui hou,

Joby and Travis

Owner's Response: Aloha and Mahalo, Joby and Travis! I guess it really says something when returning locals say such nice things. Since you guys know the area so well, the fact that you like our cottage and location really says a lot. I'm so happy that we were able to provide what you were looking for and a quiet place to rest. You were certainly some of our "busier" guests! Glad to have you with us and hope to see you again. Fondly- Bob & Roni

Perfectly named, perfect stay

  • 5 of 5

Everything written about this place is absolutely accurate - but with an added bonus.

The hosts are too modest to mention that they provide the perfect mix of warmsth and friendliness, always availabile for a hello - but yet invisible and non intrusive.

The cottage is spotlessly clean, the kitchen fully stocked with amenities, the pool a terrific oasis, and. we were steps from an uncrowded piece of beach paradise.

The privacy and tranquilly was simply delicious. Thank you thank you.

Simply can't wait to return .... and are busy recommending it now to others.

Comfortable, relaxed, terrific hosts, a perfect getaway with a private saltwater swimming pool.

  • 5 of 5

We loved our week long vacation in Oahu. We had access to a beautiful beach, minutes away from our little cottage, as well as a pool right outside our door. Our hosts were respectful of our privacy yet totally accessible. We highly recommend this accommodation.
