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!

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 Kailua
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.

This was a fantastic property, great for a couples getaway in beautiful Kailua Hawaii. It e
The cabana accommodation is spacious, and exceeded our expectations. The pool was a welcome retreat and well-maintained. The kitchen was excellent for preparing light meals, and our host, Bob was kind and responsive. There were Beach toys to use, outdoor shower for sand removal, and the beach was literally 300 ft from the house. Parking was available onsite. We loved this place and would definitely return.
everything you need
Had a wonderful stay! The convenience of Kailua Beach is great ... a couple min walk dowb the street to that amazing beach. We had morning coffee on the beach then back for breakfast and then long walks along the 2.5 mile empty beach made for a relaxing time. Bob and Roni have everything you need. Really enjoyed have some beach chairs and umbrella right on the way out to the beach.
Thanks for a great getaway.
A cozy and relaxing retreat
Tranquility Base is exactly that - a tranquil home base for a vacation on the windward side. The cottage is equipped with everything needed for a comfortable stay. The neighbourhood is quiet and proximity to the beach is great. Bob and Roni are great hosts, there if you need them but otherwise leave you be. It truly felt like a home away from home and we look forward to visiting again soon.

could not have been better
Super clean, close to beach, just as in pictures. Owner very accommodating as TV went out and he rushed out to buy a new one. We have stayed in many VRBO properties and this by far was the most convenient to everything. Suggestions for eating and sight seeing were spot on. Thanks Bob and family for a great time.

Great location, a little low on privacy
This is a lovely little cottage in the owner's backyard. The yard is just a bit bigger than the pool. The neighborhood is high-end with a private entrance to a stunning beach on Kailua Bay. The cottage is small but has nicely painted concrete floors, a tiny kitchen with a full-sized refrigerator, inexpensive coffee maker, and microwave but no stove (hot plate), and a beautiful full bathroom. The two French doors and lots of overhead windows let in a nice breeze. The queen bed was comfortable. There was a gas grill available for cooking. The TV was so-so but you don't go to Kailua to watch TV. One big draw was the pool, but it is not the exclusive use of the renters. The owner told me his teen daughter and her friend might use it, but they didn't. I really enjoyed my stay. It was just awkward from a privacy perspective having to walk on the side of the house past the open windows where the family was having dinner or watching movies or having conversations. I didn't look and I doubt they were looking at me but they could see me come and go to the beach or dinner. From the back patio door, I could see a family member using what appeared to be a computer and felt strange sitting in their backyard. I stayed 8 days and got used to it after a couple of days, but it wasn't as private as I would have liked. It might not bother other people though. The owner was very respectful and did not come out into the backyard during my stay. All-in-all, it's a wonderful little place, especially for one person.
Hi Erin, thanks for the thoughtful comments. We enjoyed having you stay with us.
Having folks walk past the windows to get to the back yard is something we've gotten used to over the years, and we try to make sure our guests know that it's no imposition at all. In fact, we always try to say hi. Sorry if you were at all uncomfortable. -Best, Bob & Roni
