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 Kailua

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.

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.

The Gents

  • 5 of 5

The Ginger Studio was perfect for our needs. We had spent 10 days on a structured tour of Maui and Oahu at large hotels and busy places. We were looking for a place to relax and just enjoy the beauty of Hawaii before heading home. Kailua and Sheffield House were perfect for that. The owners have given a lot of thought to the needs of their guests. We would have liked to meet the owners, but they had to go to the mainland while we were there. They made sure we had good directions to Kailua and a contact if we had any problems. The Hawaiian bread and fruit provided was much appreciated and enjoyed. Besides being neat and very clean the location was central for what we wanted to do. Plenty of good restaurants near by which were listed on a What To Do sheet and map. We spent an afternoon at Kailua beach and Park which was very nice.

great place, location and environment

  • 4 of 5

Place was awesome. A very very short walk to the beach. Private parking off street. A little oasis. I would definitely stay here again. Didn't like that you could hear other tenants in ajoined rooms.

A Beautiful Stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 6 nights in this unit. It was very clean, beautifully decorated, bed was comfortable, and location was perfect. Coffeemaker, small refrigerator, and everthing we needed was provided. The welcome breakfast of fruit and Hawaiian bread was a wonderful touch. The room offered ample room for luggage storage without stumbling over it. It is a very short walk to Kalapawai Market and the amazing beach. Downtown Kailua was a short drive . The AC unit worked great, though not normally needed, we were there during an unusually hot time and it was much appreciated! Owners were friendly and accessible. The private patio was a nice touch for enjoying morning coffee. We will definitely return!
