Kailua Cottage Rental Photos and Description

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!

We stayed at Bob and Roni's rental mid October 2016. We can't say enough about this rental. Bob was very responsive during the rental process through us leaving the property. Relatively small, but great for a couple. High quality rental from the bedroom, bathroom(including towels), kitchenette and pool. Everything was high quality including the owners. We enjoyed visiting with them during our stay. As you can see from all the previous reviews, this is the place to rent during a stay on the windward side of Oahu. Located close to beach and Kailua downtown. We will definitely stay here on our next trip if the property is available.

Kailua Beachside Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Great location for exploring Oahu. Cottage had everything we needed for our stay and was located within walking distance of beautiful Kailua beach. There was a beautiful pool onsite that we used, too. Owner lives onsite and was welcoming and helpful. We would stay here again! Thank-you , Bob!

Perfect cottage for our 5 night stay! Bob and Roni made us feel relaxed and welcome and having the use of their pool was a big plus! Location was ideal - with a beautiful beach literally steps away. A short drive to the Pearl Harbour Memorial with breathtaking views along the way!

We would definitely recommend this cottage!

Thanks again Bob & Roni!

A perfect oasis in Kailua! It was like our own salt water pool and then a very short walk to the beach! Our cottage was immaculate with the softest towels ever! Very private with the owners home right next to us! Easy drive to wherever you choose to go! Highly recommend!

Wonderful host and property

  • 5 of 5

I actually booked Bob's place for another couple, very last minute. My husband was racing our sailboat in the Pacific Cup race from San Francisco to Kaneohe, Oahu. One of our crew member's girlfriend decided to fly out to surprise him. She called me and I needed to scramble to find accommodations for them within two days! Kailua is a very popular area, and the minute I viewed Bob's place I immediately booked it. I could tell by the other reviews that it was the perfect place for a couple to relax, close to the beach and where we were staying. Bob was wonderful to work with. He communicated quickly and throughout the booking and checking in process. This was a wild weather event with Hurricane Darby beating down on the boats and the island. It was downgraded to a tropical storm, but it packed a punch with rain and wind. Bob was very helpful with our friends, always there to help, but offering full privacy for them in the cute and comfortable guest house. They loved it, even in the rain! That's saying something. They loved the pool (when it did finally stop raining) and the close by Kailua beach. They really liked meeting Bob and loved the experience. I would book it again without hesitation.

Owner's Response: Hi Kelly. Thanks for arranging our cottage for your race crew. We had a wonderful time chatting with Will and Jeane, and were happy to provide a quiet place for Will to recover from the race. We hope you'll keep us in mind for future travel, and hope to meet you in person soon. - Bob & Roni
