Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

The unit is small, but it n a great location and perfect for two people. Kathy is the consummate host. She met us upon arrival and show us around the facilities. Everything you need for an enjoyable stay is provided (beach towels, sand chairs, cooler, etc, plus access to your private washer/dryer!). The area is quiet and the spectacular beach is only a short walk away. The town of Kailua has great restaurants and shopping and is an easy starting point for driving to the North Shore.

We highly recommend a stay here and hope to be back again!

Fantastic location.

  • 5 of 5

Just one block from the beach. Scenic two mile road loop to walk or bike on. One block from the entrance to the famous Pillbox hike. Cozy room with kitchen amenities. The owner, Kathy, is very helpful and extremely responsive.

Location, location, location

  • 5 of 5

Great little studio one block from the beach, one block from the pillbox trail, with decent amenities. Other reviewers discuss the small bathroom, which yes it’s small, but the photos clearly represent its size. The outdoor space consists of a small patio with table and chairs and a small lawn area behind the studio. Kid friendly, however traveling with our almost 3 year old we realized how much we missed having a separate bedroom for bedtime/naptime but that’s a personal preference. The owner lives on site but pretty much leaves you alone unless you have questions or recommendations, of which she is very helpful. The neighborhood is a one way loop which is a great 2.5 mile run in the morning to end with a gorgeous sunrise at Lanikai beach. All in all a great spot for a couple or small family!

Studio close to the most beautiful beach on earth!

  • 5 of 5

We just finished a week at this studio in Lanikai, home of the most gorgeous beach in the entire world. The owner, Karen, met us the first day and showed us around, and was available any time we needed something. They have a cabinet outside full of anything you might need for the beach, which was awesome. The studio itself is one room set up with a bed, a two-seater couch, a table/chairs, and a kitchen (a full refrigerator but no stove, although they do have a hot plate and a grill outside). There's also a very small bathroom with a standup shower. The studio is also walking distance to Kailua Beach, another gorgeous beach, and an easy walk to Buzz's Steakhouse for drinks and food (definitely try the Artichoke Surprise). The only thing to be aware of is that the studio is situated right on the street leading to the popular Pillbox hike, and people start this hike as early as 5am, which means there is quite a bit of early morning noise. However, Karen thoughtfully provided ear plugs in anticipation of this issue.

Very comfortable

  • 4 of 5

A neat, clean small studio flat. Perfect for what we needed for three days.

Very short walk to the beach.

Kathy could not be more helpful and accommodating.

About Owner / Property Manager

Aloha, I am a local American Asian raised on Oahu but have lived in Europe and Alabama while my father was in the Army. My husband bought this house in Lanikai in 1999. I have two daughters attending nearby schools. I have over 15 years experience in managing rental units in Lanikai and Whistler, BC, Canada. I am very organized, efficient, and courteous. Since I work from home, I am available to assist with any questions or issues. I believe good communication is the key to a good relationship.
