Great stay with great hosts!

  • 5 of 5

Joy and Michael's place was wonderful. Their studio is perfect for two people. Its actually two separate rooms. A bedroom with a small TV and AC (important on hot days), a bathroom and a separate kitchenette/dining table (also has its own AC). The kitchenette has a sink and some basics like a microwave, coffee maker and hot plate, but there isn't a full oven with burners here. We didn't care because we mostly ate out anyway. There's also a cute little outdoor lanai to hang out in. The decor is very tasteful and everything worked as expected. All the rooms are a nice size. Joy and Michael had even left us some coffee, chocolates and fruit as welcome gifts.

The location is excellent. Just a few minutes to one of the best beaches in Oahu. Kailua has some great shops and restaurants and is away from the crazy tourists of Honolulu. Getting to the North Shore, Honolulu or the west side of the island is super easy and there are a lot of other beaches and hiking trails close to Kailua. We highly recommend staying there instead of the tourist trap resorts in Waikiki. In fact, we loved it so much we decided to extend our stay. Joy was very flexible and patient with us and even offered us a late checkout without even having to ask. Great hosts. Highly recommended! :)

Incredible accommodations! Everything we could have needed

  • 5 of 5

With a five minute walk to Kailua Beach and a short walk to downtown, this was the perfect location for my daughter and me. The apartment was perfect, with a private bedroom off a small living area. My teenage daughter could sleep in And I could get work done in the morning. Beautifully appointed with everything we could need to cook in the apartment and lovely furnishings. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

Kailua is a beautiful place and this studio is the ideal place

  • 5 of 5

I can't speak highly enough about our stay in Kailua. The start of our vacation the weather was not great but the apartment and hosts were fantastic to us. The accommodation is quiet, private and has everything you need. It is definitely a place for maximum two people but it has ample space for a couple. We stayed here for 8 nights and we were very satisfied with everything provided. From the beach equipment, to the shower supplies everything was great. The value for money was excellent and we would for sure look to come back again.

Studio By Kailua Beach

  • 5 of 5

This was just a little quick vacation that my husband and I took, for me it was more of a studying get away and for my husband just to get away from the city. We met Micheal and Joy upon arrival. Micheal gave us a tour, it is a really cute studio. It had everything you needed from extra set of towels to a fruit basket, which was great. It's a small little set up but perfect for two. I took a walk to the beach which wasn't far at all. I was really happy with the space and privacy. It is definately a perfect little get away.

Great Location and Amenities!

  • 4 of 5

the only drawback is the lack of privacy. As a couple, we either had to lose all natural light by closing the shades or be exposed to the other tenants walking by and peeking in the bedroom and kitchen windows.

The amenities, from the great welcome basket, kitchenette appliances, beach gear, towels, to the shower accessories were all extremely valuable! Would love to come back one day!

Car: recommended

The property is located near local activities, such as bicycling, kayaking, surfing, kite boarding, wind surfing, snorkeling, and hiking. It is in walking distance to the district recreational center in which tennis, basketball, and swimming can be enjoyed. A 10 minute walk will put you in the center of Kailua town in which shopping or sitting outdoors and having breakfast, lunch or dinner are only a few possibilities. You are in a 7-10 minute walking distance of the Farmer's Markets that are held on Thursday and Sunday.
