Teresa, warm, friendly, soft spoken lady. We arrived late at night April 20. Teresa welcomed us and made sure we settled in right. There was a cute welcome fruit basket filled with pineapple, apple banana, mango and avocado! Quiet and convenient location. Clean, cozy and sweet rental. Very well stocked supply. Just 5 min drive to the BEST BEACH IN THE WORLD, LANIKAI BEACH. We walked to the beach nearby to watch the sunrise. BEST EXPERIENCE. We weren't too far from Longs, Whole Foods, Target. Please check out Kalapawai Market cafe beside Kailua Beach, Bob's Pizzeria just a few steps away. Don't forget to explore Pillboxes Trail! We didn't get a chance to do that! We were too busy going to the beach just 5 mins away! Teresa, you are so wonderful and can't THANK YOU enough. THANK YOU! Big hugs to you and Summer. (Naomi misses Summer)
This was a perfect retreat for our family. We are a young family of 5, the fifth being a 9 month old baby boy. The cottage was very clean, comfortable and welcoming. Our favorite amenities were the large washer and dryer units located in the large bathroom, which was perfect for coming home from the beach or the swap meet. One of the best beaches in the world was a short walk, less than 10 minutes, from the cottage. Totally doable for a family with young kids.
The property was very well maintained. The private patio was lovely and the pool was beautifully landscaped.
For people who are in need of using a cell phone (we have Verizon), Lanikai has poor cell reception. With the location of the cottage being next to a hill, I was rarely able to take a call and barely able to send a text. There is a land line available in the room.
I don't know if the WiFi can be improved or not. There were 3 occasions where the WiFi signal dropped out and disappeared.
Beyond that, there was nothing to complain about. The customer service was great, the amenities were perfect and the location couldn't be better for the price.
after one week in crowded and busy honolulu, we really enjoyed the calm and relaxing atmosphere of lanikai and kailua.
the studio is located very close to the beach and well equiped for our family of 4 people.
we enjoyed the evening rest in the lanai, and the kids had fun on the swimming pool after spending the day at the beach.
Lanikai and Kailua beaches are beautiful : ideal for kids (no waves) and we enjoyed snorkeling in the crystal-clear water (turtles showed everyday)
Teresa is a great owner and we appeciated her kindness
We stayed for a little over a month and found the studio to be quiet, clean, comfortable and quaint. It was just as described and it had all of the necessities we needed to make our visit enjoyable. The kitchen had a nice assortment of appliances and utensils so that if we chose to eat in rather than out, it was easy and relaxing. Most days we chose to pack a lunch in the cooler that was on hand, and were able to take advantage of the local farmer's markets to get fresh fruits and veggies to take with us.
Being so close to Lanikai beach was a pleasure as we could get up at dawn and take a short stroll down to the beach to watch the sunrise or spend the day at the beach without having to worry about finding parking along the street.
I grew up in Kailua and being in the close-knit Lanikai community was a pleasure as the residents are quiet, friendly, helpful and outgoing. Teresa was an excellent host, both friendly and gracious,and went out of her way to make sure that everything was okay and that we had everything we needed.
We were able to enjoy the Lanikai Ridge Pillbox trail, the Moanalua Valley Trail, and a nice hike around Kaena Point as well as watching several surfing competions and some less crowded and sleepier (but gorgeous) beaches like Laie and Waimanalo. We went back to several of our favorite restaurants like, Buzz's Steakhouse, Kalapawai Deli and Kua Aina Burger, but found several new ones as well; The Pig and the Lady, Sweet Home Waimanalo, The Honolulu Burger Company and Cactus. For fun we ate at the Thursday night Farmers Market in Kailua Town one evening.
All in all, it was a great visit and we would definately return. The unit was clean, comfortable, quiet, secure, had onsite parking and was located in a beautiful enviornment. Our host was friendly, gracious and considerate.

I grew up in Kailua. To say it was just like being home is an understatement! Theresa was the perfect hostess for our family. Our 9 year old couldn't have been more thrilled to share the pool, the beach and the fantastic back door BBQ. I couldn't have been any more comfortable. Every need more than met and I would recommend to anyone! In fact, I'm coming back sooner than I thought because of this and I hope it will be available. Just like home and perfect for 3.
The place was perfect for a couple. It had all that you need to start living life ie. the kitchen had all supplies; the owner even left a basket of fruit and organic coffee. The laundry in-unit was clean and laundry soap was supplied - unbelievable considerate. The studio came with private parking and the private pool was so perfect. And if the beach is what you want, very nice beaches in walking distance or a short car ride. And don't forget to visit Buzz's, really great service and very good food.
Other Activities: Just one block from our driveway to the nearest Lanikai Beach right-of-way & three small blocks to the large Lanikai Beach; kayaking, boating, parasailing, biking, health/beauty spa; Lanikai Park with basketball court & swings.
