We stayed one week at the studio and had a wonderful time! The use of the bicycles, beach mats, beach towels, boogie boards and charcoal barbecue was so nice~! We couldn't have found that at a high-rise in Waikiki! The area was so quiet and so convenient to restaurants and shopping (Macy's!), literally minutes away! I want to Thank James for providing us his lovely home - but we only met him briefly on our arrival. The place is much larger and prettier than the photo. The internet worked very well and we enjoyed the many tv channels. There was a medium sized refrigerator, microwave, rice cooker, hot plate, coffee pot, coffee and filters, salt and pepper, plates,bowls, utensils and a handy large sink with a scrubby and dish soap to wash them up with. The towels were large and fluffy - even the dishtowels! We will definately stay again! We used the washing machine once ($2.00 wash/dry). What a lovely, affordable plave - felt like our own home for a week! Perfect for two people maximum. We enjoyed eating at Mokes and Teddies for burgers. Highly recommended!!!
Fantastic Unit for 2 people and yes this is not the Hilton by any means but the rooms are neat and clean ideally suited for showering and laying your head down for the night....besides the rest of the time you should be exploring Oahu. Parking for your car, Washer dryer to clean your clothes, fantastic neighborhood and close to all amenities plus one of the best beaches on the island (Lanikai Beach) makes this place a great value.
Big Plus is the Location, making easy access to all the major Hwys and your on the quite side of the island.
Accurately listed and met our expectations! No, it's not the Hilton with room service and plastic surgery, but this cute little place we would definitely recommend to our like-minded friends and family. It had everything we needed - even things we didn't think we'd need, all neat and tidy. And you can count on the host to get back to you quickly, which is nice to have a trustworthy and helpful owner within reach. Mahalo for sharing the aloha!
We didn't stay at this unit, but ours was similar. Very affordable, clean, and good hot water. Very enjoyable stay. Air conditioning and ceiling fan worked well.
The house was in a nice & quite location, everything was within a 5-10 minute drive from the unit. The bed was okay but was not a major concern as we only used the room as a place to stay at night when we were not out exploring the island. The owner was accessible and responded quickly in regards to our initial inquiries.
The overall experience was good and would highly recommend the properties to others wishing to vacation within the east side of the island. We can't wait until we have the ability to come back out again.
This was a great little studio. My boyfriend & I are from San Francisco, CA. We stayed here for a 1 week in spring. The photos & descriptions provided are very accurate. It has a nice bathroom, AC, little TV, mini fridge, and small table w/ chairs. The studio was very clean. They also provided a change of bed sheets and beach towels as well as free access to their beach gear like boogie boards. The price was very affordable. The location was great, right in Kailua. Just a short 5 minute car ride to the beach. If you're not renting a car, you could definitely walk to the beach in 15 minutes and take a nearby bus to the stores. The neighborhood is nice & quiet with no tourists around. There was a Whole Foods & Down to Earth grocery store also close by. The only downside was the old mattress left my back sore, but other than that, things were great. There is a washer and dryer in the garage that you have access to. I would DEFINITELY stay here again. I was originally very weary of using a rental website and transferring money through PayPal, but it turned out to be very convenient and safe. We never saw the owner during our stay. We just picked up the keys in the mailbox, found our room, and stayed settled in. Then upon departure, we just cleaned up a bit and left the keys for the owner. We also got our deposit back within a timely manner. This little studio in Kailua was sooo much better than staying in busy Honolulu. If I ever get the chance to return to Oahu, I will try and book this place again. THANK YOU very much for letting us stay here!
This is a nice cozy studio with small meal prep area for simple meals, small refrig, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, rice cooker/steamer, hot plate, pots, pans, utensils, dishes & glassware. Nice central location near shops and restaurants. Kailua is an upscale, beach side community on the windward (cool, tradewinds side) of Oahu. It is away from the hustle and bustle of the big city, Honolulu or Waikiki Beach, but still a short 20-30 min. drive away. Kailua is also 5 min. from another famous beach, Lanikai, with picturesque offshore islands. Rent a kayak and kayak over.
Other Activities: Kawainui marsh walk, bird preserve. Climb Olomana Mt.
Golf: Pali, Luana Hills (like Jurassic Park), and Olomana Golf courses are in Kailua.
Luana Hills also has a wonderfulSUNDAY BRUNCH with incredible, scenic mountain views.
A really challenging course, Koolau is also nearby.
