About the property

Seaside studion - steps to beach - 5 minutes to cute small town

Inquire about special rates! Steps from the beach on a private lane. Large peaceful studio with cathedral ceilings, kitchenette, and private yard with barbecue. Located in the best neighborhood in Kailua, enjoy the sounds of the ocean and feel the tropical trade winds. TAX ID#s GE (general excise) and TA (transient accommodations) 123-430-7072-01

The price is set very low at $135 because due to zoning laws we must rent for a minimum of 30 days. There is also a Hawaii State GETax of 4.712% and a TATax of 9.25% that is collected by VRBO.

The studio is very large - 556 square feet. We just renovated it in November of 2014 and it is very well appointed and feels new and very tropical. The beach is two houses away using our private beach access. At night you can hear the ocean. The kitchen is full of appliances and a small fridge with an additional small fridge in a cupboard just outside.

Appliances and extras include:

washer and dryer in our garage

coffee maker

toaster oven


electric tea pot

2 burner induction hot plate

pots and pans

iron and ironing board


rice cooker

TV with cable service

beach chairs and towels

snorkeling equipment

beach umbrella




If you need anything else, just ask.

Glasses, dishes and silverware are all provided

We also have a hot water outside shower (in addition to the shower in the bathroom) and

there is a tropical private yard for the studio with table and chairs where you can enjoy cocktails or barbequing and dining outside under the Hawaiian moon and stars.

Guest Access

We have beach chairs, a beach umbrella, beach towels, snorkeling equipment, boogie boards, and a cooler to make your stay fun and enjoyable. Children must be 7 years or older. Smoking is not allowed on our property. Please keep noise levels down in the evening as ours is a quiet neighborhood. The inside of our house including our bedroom and bathroom is clearly viewed from the backyard pool area so we ask guests to please use the pool between 11am and 6pm. We are often away for a good part of the day at work.

We are very lucky to have an onsite massage therapist who is also an expert in skin care including facials, peels and wonderful skin products. A great way to get a head start on a very relaxing vacation

Interaction with Guests

We enjoy meeting people from everywhere. We also welcome conversations and inquiries about Hawaii and our neighborhood. Please provide your arrival and departure times when booking. If we can't be there to greet you - we will connect with you by cell phone on arrival and meet you in person as soon as we can.

The Neighborhood

Ours is a friendly private street where there are several beach vacation rentals. If you stroll down the beach for about a mile there is a very cute neighborhood store that sells groceries wine and beer, and coffee drinks - they have a deli with great dishes for a picnic. Kailua town is a 5 minute drive to great shops and restaurants.

Getting Around

There is a bus stop very close by. Enterprise has a car rental office in Kailua. You cannot take the bus from the airport to our home WITH a suitcase. A taxi from the airport will cost about 40-60 dollars.

About Helen Petrovitch

I am an Internal Medicine physician involved in clinical research. My husband is a hospitalist and we have 2 grown children. We have lived in this neighborhood since 1997 and in Kailua and Lanikai since 1982. We have enjoyed traveling all over the world with our children when they were growing up and staying in small hosted B&Bs. Now we are very pleased to offer the Coral Room studio adjacent too our home by the sea and introduce guests to the charms of our small and tropical community in Kailua.

Helen Petrovitch purchased this studio in 1997

Why Helen Petrovitch chose Kalama Tract

Our Coral Room is a large studio and we are two houses from the beach with a private beach access. You will hear the ocean at night. We have private parking in our three car driveway and you can drive to our cute small town where there is a Whole Foods store and many small shops and restaurants.

What makes this studio unique

Quiet friendly neighborhood, beautiful warm ocean. Walking distance to beachside café/shop.

This rental was absolutely perfect! 3 adults and one child, we fit very comfortably in the space. It was clean and put together wonderfully upon our arrival. The beach is right at the end of the road, you could hear the ocean at night! The pool and hot tub, right outside the back door was an added bonus! We rode bikes our entire stay- everything was SO close, no more than a 12 minute bike ride to anywhere we needed to go. The beach was quiet because it falls on the private side. The neighbors were loud at times-but that was to be expected when people are vacationing in Hawaii. we always slept with the windows open (with screens) because the Hawaiian breeze was perfect! No AC needed, we just used the provided fans. The TV worked- but we hardly used it, the wifi worked and it was fast, the hot plate is actually really awesome and worked very well. All the alliances worked. The fridge inside is tiny, but luckily there was another mini fridge outside for us to use.

Overall Helens place was perfect for us! I can't think of anything negative about the rental!

We will definitely be contacting her again for a family vacation!
