Overview

About the property

Studio Apartment with wonderful views

Ocean and mountain views from your own lanai across Kailua Bay and the Koolau Mountains. Our studio apartment sits on a hillside in Kailua with no houses behind so it is very private and quiet. The accommodation totals 700sq ft including the 400sq ft studio and the 300 sq ft lanai. Facilities include, Air Conditioning, fridge, microwave, kitchenette with hot plate, toaster, coffee maker, crockery, cutlery and glassware. There is a Queen size bed, cable TV, wireless internet and dedicated off road parking. We do recommend hiring a car as it is a one mile drive to Kailua Town and two miles to Kailua beach. The studio is a separate building just across from our main house and has its own private entrance.

Wonderful studio. Great host.

  • 5 of 5

We arrived late, but lights were on & door unlocked for us. Ralph had left us coffee, juice & fresh pineapples & bananas. The view is priceless & studio comfortable & well equipped. We hope to stay here again.

Wow!!!

  • 5 of 5

We went to Oahu for our 25th wedding anniversary, so we wanted to stay someplace where we could have some privacy and relax. We are so glad we found Bayview Cottage. Waking up every morning to watch night turn to day bringing the mountains into view while lying in bed was fabulous! We loved that we could have breakfast in the studio and then head out at our leisure! Ralph greeted us upon arrival, and we had a wonderful chat with him. The studio was immaculately cleaned and fully equipped with everything we needed and more. It's a lovely space with incredible views. Karen and Ralph went above and beyond to make sure our needs were met while still respecting our privacy. When they tell you the water can take a while to heat up because it's a solar heat, believe them. We didn't find it a problem, but it important to note when planning to get your day started. Eating breakfast on the lanai felt like the perfect start to the day. Even though we were on vacation, I even ended up feeling so inspired I wrote a few poems sitting on the lanai and looking out over the mountains and the bay. The studio is a short drive from Kailua Beach, which is a wonderful place to take a walk on the beach! Also, close by is a Whole Foods and a great grocery store called Down to Earth Natural & Organic! I will definitely check to see if Bayview Cottage is available if we decide to go to Oahu again!!

Beautiful place with breath taking views around every corner

  • 5 of 5

I absolutely enjoyed my stay here. The house is located on a hill. The room has the most amazing views. Karen was so nice and accommodating. She gave us advice and was there if we needed anything or had any questions. The room had a small television and a small kitchen area great for preparing small meals in the morning. The pool was beautiful and a nice get away from the beach. Be sure to bring treats for their lab Arthur! I reccommmend this place 100% and would stay again in a heart beat!

I truly enjoyed my stay.

This Bay View Cottage has it all

  • 5 of 5

As others have said, Bay View cottage has great views of the surrounding mountain peaks and out to the ocean. Owners are warm, welcoming and hospitable. We had everything we needed. The cottage was clean, has a comfy bed and we enjoyed dinner on the balcony looking over the valley. We would definitely return to this cottage.

Super Carriage House With Views for Days

  • 5 of 5

The Carriage Hose Rental is high above Enchanted Lake & Kailua. You will feel the Aloha Spirit in this Location. The Hosts are Very Personable and enjoy People. The Hosts keep the rental very clean & tidy. We stayed over New Years for 11 days. I would Highly Recommend this Rental to anyone looking for a location that is "Not On the Beach". The rental is in a High End Multi-Million Dollar neighborhood with a lot of Peace & Quiet. Did I mention the VIEWS!!!!! Unbelievable, Gorgeous, Transcendental......
