felt like home

  • 5 of 5

We spend 12 nights here and felt like home, still sad to leave. The unit is compact but just right for 2, all we needed was there to make breakfast in the morning or bbq in the evening.

There’s plenty of space to store your belongings and organize the way you like. The interior is island style and tastefully selected, lots of books and guides to plan your days on the island.

The location is great, right around the corner to beautiful Kailua beach. Kalapawai market or watersports gear rental is close as well, so no need to use the car all the time.

Michael and Joy gave us a warm welcome and were always helpul when needed. We cant wait to come back and live here again .

True aloha spirit, mahalo from Roman and Silvia!

The studio fit our needs very well. It has everything for two people to be comfortable. The hosts are friendly, accommodating and respond quickly to inquiries. The location was exactly what we were looking for; close to the beach and walking distance to stores and restaurants.

Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I stayed here while visiting family for the holidays - it was perfect! Joy and Michael were wonderful - very easy to work with when preparing for our vacation and they were at the property when we arrived to show us the place and see if we had any questions. Our stay was quiet and peaceful, and the space had everything we needed- dishes, towels (bath and beach), TV, air conditioning, a small fridge, kitchen appliances and more! We could walk to the beach in the morning to watch the sunrise and grab a cup of coffee at the market on our way back. The air conditioning was also a definite plus. I would definitely recommend this place and will hopefully stay here each year when we visit Kailua for the holidays!

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!

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.
