The partitions in this circular-design studio unit with a tall ceiling made it feel more like a spacious one bedroom apartment. The bed was comfortable, the kitchen well equipped, and there were plenty of windows and fans for staying cool. The kitchen had a full-size stove/oven, refrigerator, microwave and dishwasher rather than the scaled down versions found in many studio setups. Everything was clean and well-kept.
The owners are a delightful couple and are there when needed, but allow you complete privacy. The unit abuts the sometimes busy Kalaheo Road, but a screening fence and lovely plantings provide good separation. Beautiful Kailua beach is a short walk away. A nice selection of beach gear and two bicycles are exclusively available to the unit. The location affords easy access to grocery, pharmacy and other shopping needs.
Of the four places we have rented in Kailua over the past few years, this is our favorite. We highly recommend staying here, and will definitely be back ourselves.
