DELIGHTFUL NEW DESIGNER STUDIO NEAR KAILUA BEACH

Kailua Kona House Rental Photos and Description

House, Studio + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Imagine relaxing in tropical paradise in a new vacation studio with high end, island style furniture and a private entrance. Located 0.8 miles from the beach (4 minute drive, 8 minute bike or 15 minute walk). Let the lush foliage surroundings and the sound of a small waterfall cascading into the fishpond in the front area, put you in the right frame of mind. You are sure to appreciate your full kitchen with granite countertops. Enjoy the fun, unique bathroom that has a travertine shower with a pebble floor and a beautiful tropical mural. The colorful custom ceramic sink is hand painted with turtles and fish.

Sliding doors open to a private patio with a grill for island dining. As a bonus there is a small open loft with a twin bed that is accessible by ladder. Although close to quaint Kailua town, with restaurants and boutique shopping, the studio is quiet and there is no street noise. It is a pretty three block walk to Kailua Beach, always listed as one of the world's best, with it's sugary sands, picturesque views and turquoise water. Lanikai Beach and the often photographed Mokulua's are just a five minute drive. The studio has mountain bikes, beach chairs, coolers and other beach gear available.

Not Comfy, not convenient to beach, misleading description

  • 1 of 5
  • Submitted: Feb 26, 2014

Very close quarters, even for just two people. Very little cross breeze so the place gets stuffy especially when it's humid outside. The room, towels were never cleaned - maid service does not exist here. What Satellite/cable TV service offers 13 channels (lo-def) 2 of which are in a foreign language and two more are shopping channels? None I've ever heard of. "Bikes available." Hmmm, 4 bikes: 1 inoperable with flat tires, 1 that won't shift, one that shifts 1 gear, one that shifts 3 gears. All bike chains and derailleurs are rusted solid. The walk to the beach is 15 minutes; to town is 12 minutes (opposite direction). The apartment is LOUD: barking dogs, ukelele player in the front yard several nights, car alarms going off and lots of chatter from the owners portion of the house. This is a studio apartment on the side of a large house. Nice pool, but you cannot use it. Many of the pictures on this listing are offsite, not of the place you'll be staying.

We do not recommend you stay here.
Owner's Response: I am very sorry to hear this guest was so unhappy as I am very much committed to people having a great stay. I am living in the main house by myself and it is so quiet here you can hear a pin drop. We are fortunate we have no traffic or road noise and it couldn't get quieter. I have a brand new bike sitting out in the area for bikes. I put chain oil right by the bikes and I ride all the time. This is a wonderful place to ride. The guests who have just arrived have mentioned what a lovely place and how quiet it is so I do not know how to fix this review or this person stay. This is a studio, more a place to sleep, eat, relax and get to the beach which is amazing and easy to get to.

Wonderful Place to Stay!!

My husband and I came for our first visit to Hawaii in August for our one-year anniversary!! My husband's step-mom was born/raised in Kailua and we knew that what she described to us as a nice/quiet town with a beautiful beach was where we wanted to stay! The studio was perfect! It was just the two of us and the size of the place was more than enough. The kitchen had everything we needed in it and the town of Kailua was really close (5-8 min walk) to do all of our shopping (Whole Foods, etc.) Everything was so clean and the paintings/decorations were so pretty! There were plenty of beach chairs, coolers, etc. provided. You cannot use the pool if staying in the 1 bedroom/studio unit, but with a beach that amazing so close, who needs the pool!? I will admit, it does get a little hot in there; however, there were 2 fans that we kept on while sleeping at night, and we slept just fine and we weren't there during the day most of the time anyways because we were out sightseeing! We drove to the beach (only walked there once) It isn't too far away, but was just easier to drive instead of carrying everything. We loved how quiet and low key everything was there. We drove to Waikiki for the day and although it was fun...we really appreciated staying away from all the hustle/bustle of the city. Make sure to travel up to the North Shore as well (Matsumoto's Shave Ice in Haleiwa)....see as much as you can of the island! Oahu was incredible! Thank you so much for an enjoyable stay!! We had the most amazing vacation!

Good Location

My husband and I were very happy with the decor, size and cleanliness of the studio. The studio looks exactly as the photos reflect -- the beach looks BETTER. If you are looking to live the Hawaii lifestyle this is for you. The studio is on a residential block with children at play and an approx. 3/4 mile (10 min.) walk to the beach; which we did every morning to watch the sunrise (Awesome even in the clouds). The kitchen is fully stocked and a updated washer and dryer with soap available.

We ate a great breakfast 4 times at Moke's and had dinner in Waikki at Orchids in the Halekulani Hotel and watched the sunset. The studio is in a great location easy access just as Susanne says. The North Shore (with the infamous surfing beaches) is about an hour drive, Waikki is approx 30 min drive for some major shopping and restaurants galore.

The only issue we had was the curtains on the sliding doors were difficult to close completely which left us feeling a little "exposed", especially since the other guests staying in the house used our walkway to access the laundry room almost every day! So it's not quite as private if there are other guests in the house.

Even still, the bottom line is I would recommend this studio and return. Next time we would love to actually meet Susanne personally.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for recognizing the great location we are in and for finding so many of the gems close by. I am sorry to not get the chance to meet you as I have just returned today. I will make a quick adjustment to get better curtains and to post a little sign asking for the other guests to walk the other way to the laundry room as the patio is very private and intimate. Thank you again for staying with us!
Much aloha
Susanne

Tranquility

Tranquility can never be overrated. Waking up to the cool breeze through the doors and the sounds of birds was delightful. Enjoyed the studio, the beach and the very cool beach town of Kailua.
