About Rachel

Paul is an architect and Rachel is a landscape architect and planner.

We have lived in Kailua almost 30 years. We enjoy sharing our corner of paradise with our guests.

Rachel purchased this studio in 1989

Why Rachel chose Kuulei Tract

We are very conveniently located between Kailua Town and Kailua Beach. Kuulei Road is at the very end of the Pali Highway so we are also very convenient to Honolulu . Over the years we have had friends and family from the mainland visit. They are amazed and often say that they do not know of any place that has this combination of mountains, magnificent beach and lovely little town. We have an amazing monkeypod tree which shades the home. We are conveniently located between Kailua Beach and Kailua Town. We have replaced the fence and enlarged the Secret Garden to better serve guests. Hope to have updated photos by July 10th! Yes, we are always looking for ways to update and improve!

We are a licensed Bed and Breakfast with the City and County of Honolulu

You do not have to worry about the City closing this business.

What makes this studio unique

Someone said that Kailua has air like velvet and ocean like champagne. We like the soft air and love to swim in the waves.

Cozy and Convenient

  • 5 of 5

We so enjoyed our stay at the Ginger studio! It was perfectly located so we could quickly access the beach and town area. It had all the amenities we needed and we felt it was tucked away nicely to give us privacy. We loved listening to the water feature outside at night and hearing the birds in the morning. It was perfect for our stay and we would definitely come back!

Very comfortable

  • 4 of 5

Nice property. Really comfortable. All prior places we had stayed did not have A/C so that was a real plus for the hubby. Short stroll to the most beautiful beach on Oahu! Easy access to the rest of the island. I liked the neighbor feel of the area.

Nice Peaceful Stay

  • 4 of 5

Very nice property and friendly hosts. Bathroom has spacious shower and overall nicely appointed. Room was clean and quiet. Only quibble is the bed is on the soft side. All told a very nice place to relax and see Kailua.

Relaxing Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The Ginger Studio met our expectations. The outdoor sitting area is full of chirping birds. The room was very comfortable during our stay. The kitchenette adequate for our needs. We were within biking and walking distance to Kailau Beach. There is a small grocery store nearby. And if needed a larger shopping center within biking distance. We would stay here again if the opportunity to visit Kailau arrises.

Great location in Oahu

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at Ginger Cottage for 2 weeks in November 2016. It is a perfect location to enjoy the nearby gorgeous Kailua beach and the town of Kailua and the rest of the Island. We rented a car for part of our stay but we found it was easy access to Honolulu by public transit. The cottage is lovely and comfortable, a good size for two, with the ability to have simple meals at home. Thanks for the beautiful Hawaiian experience.
