My Happy Place!
The best HomeAway place I’ve stayed in by far!!! The place was very clean and well appointed. Nice touches in decoration and clear indications that Lionel and JIll know about hosting by all of the small thoughtful touches. Perfectly located in a low key neighborhood, the studio is a short drive to several of the island’s attractions. Initially, I was concerned about not being right in Honolulu/Waikiki where the “action”
Would be, but I wouldn’t trade the experience of staying in this studio in Kailua for anything. The scenic drive to and from destinations made this choice of stay worth it as well.
Thanks to Jill/Lionel for accommodating our late departure from the island and letting us stay for later check out. Also for the constant communication.
This was my best vacation ever and staying at this studio contributed to it!!!
We greatly enjoyed our stay at Jill's and Lionel's! The studio is bright, clean and very modern. It has windows all around and some excellent views. It is quiet, bright and has full privacy. The kitchen is very well-equipped, the bathroom is large and airy. Loved the walk-in shower. The bed is not very big (queen size) but comfortable. Every detail is thought through at Jill's place. We loved the little touches, great supplies and nice decorations. Everything is exactly like in the pictures. Parking in the driveway is easy. Loved also the extra space in the garage at the entry and all the beach supplies. The beaches and the town centre are all just a few minutes' drive. Communication with Jill was excellent - she was very nice and helpful (it was great meeting you, Jill!). We were very comfortable and would happily stay here again! Many thanks!
Roomy studio retreat!
We were greeted early by the owner, briefed on the amenities of the studio, and pleased to find refreshments and a list of recommended local spots to visit. The studio is well stocked with utensils, cookware and table service. The studio is in a family friendly neighborhood which added to the feel of being a local rather than another tourist. The beaches and hiking trails are within walking distance (or short drive by car). We were especially pleased to see the pillboxes from our studio window, and appreciated the view even more after we conquered the Pillbox hike ourselves.
The Makani Kai Studio was beautiful, clean, comfortable and completely meet our high expectations. The set-up and amenities made us feel right at home and also offered us a totally different Hawaiian experience! The owner was incredibly nice, helpful and respectful to us prior, during and even after our stay. Besides the absolute beauty of the place, what we also loved was all the thought and attention to detail that the owner put into preparing the studio for us! Everything from the bath sponge available in case we needed it, to the thank God there was coffee already there to use on that first morning since we got in late on arrival night, to the Bose speaker with cord that was like the one we use at home, etc.. Point being, we noticed and appreciated that kind of serious preparation that helped make our stay so great. Of course the other best part of the stay was the studio being located in Kailua letting us be minutes away via Jeep from Lanikai Beach, the most beautiful beach in the world! Watching the sunrise/sunset on Lanikai had been on our must-do list for years and because we stayed so close we were able to experience those sunrise/sunsets every day very conveniently! To sum up, it was a fantastic experience and I highly recommend this studio!
Immaculate efficiency apartment with all the indoor amenities needed for a relaxing stay.
Property located in a quiet neighborhood between 2 of the most beautiful beaches on Oahu - Kailua and Lanikai. Walk or drive to shopping, restaurants, beaches. Property managers very accommodating and knowledgable of the area.
Best VRBO ever!
This is the best VRBO I have ever stayed at! It was just perfect in every way. It is spotless, brand new, decorated so well that it made the stay not only very comfortable but also very relaxing. It is about 7 minutes drive to Kailua Beach and maybe 4-5 minutes to town. I was in Oahu for work and it made the perfect base. I prefer to stay on this side of the island as Honolulu and Waikiki are fun but a little too hectic for me. The weather wasn't great and it was lovely to just spend time in the Studio working or relaxing. Wi-Fi signal was strong for work and Netflix. The Kitchen is fully stocked to cook, and it's easy to stop by the Farmers Market twice a week in Kailua and get your supply of great fruits and vegetables. Iron and ironing board were a plus. The Studio came stocked with excellent coffee/tea essentials and it was a really nice treat. The bathroom is impeccable with nice toiletries if you forgot yours. Every detail was really thought of. Thank you Jill and Lionel for a wonderful stay! I am already planning my return.
