Guestbook comments from the owner
Thanks for allowing us to use the studio. It’s a great unit and we had a blast. It was so relaxing that I actually lost track of the days and didn’t realize we had to check out. This was, by far, the most relaxing trip to Oahu I’ve ever had and I’ve been there more than 25 times.



Thanks again and we look forward to seeing if the unit is available again next time we head that way.

WE ENJOYED OUR VISIT SO MUCH!

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful little hide-away! We really enjoyed our stay in Kailua in your beautiful studio! We were very comfortable and the temperature was always perfect. Rode bikes to the beach - walked to the beach. Walked ENTIRE LENGTH of the beach. So beautiful! Paul loved Island Snow Shave Ice. Borrowed your book "Oahu Revealed" and it took us all over the island. Went to Waikiki Beach and ate at Duke's (What a bargain and terrific food overlooking the beach!). Snorkeling at Hanauma Bay, watched whales from trail to the point (lighthouse). Ate an unforgettable dinner at Hale-iwa Joes Haiku Gardens! Next time we'll get there at 5pm when they open! We fell in love with Kailua and we'll be back, it is a beach town, not a tourist town. Thank you so much!

Only someone with an artist's eye could have furnished and decorated the studio in such a lovely way. The best on the island - very tasteful and comfortable. Really a pleasure to stay here! The studio is so private. Thank you for creating this hideaway! We will be back!

PERFECT LOCATION AND VERY COMFORTABLE!

  • 4 of 5
I stayed at Susanne's studio for 5 weeks and loved it for a lot of reasons. For the price you pay, you cannot find a studio in Kailua with a better location or a more complete "home" package. With the exception of a single week when I had business on the other side of the island, I spent 4 full weeks without a car. It's a 10 minute walk to town, 15 minutes to the beach, and 5 minutes to a bus stop that is the ticket to anywhere you'd like to go on island. A big bonus was the super fast and very reliable internet connection; I am a remote employee and spent the entire 5 weeks working on Susanne's wi-fi without a single interruption in service. I pull down very big data sets for work, and the speed was impressive. The studio was clean, had a fully provisioned kitchen and bath, and the laundry is right around the corner. It was an incredibly functional home away from home.

The suggestion that I made upon leaving was to install air conditioning in the unit. During the daytime when I was home and the big sliding doors were open, the studio was very cool and I was never hot. At night when the doors are closed, though, it can get stuffy in there. For the last couple of nights, I just slept with the sliders open and it was perfectly comfortable. Anyway, Susanne said she'd look into it. Either way, for the price you pay, it's a super deal.

I'll be coming back to Oahu in the fall and hope to stay here again, if the unit is available. Thanks for a lovely stay Susanne - much Aloha to you. I enjoyed your beautiful home.

NOT COMFY, NOT CONVENIENT TO BEACH, MISLEADING DESCRIPTION

  • 1 of 5
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!!

  • 5 of 5
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

  • 4 of 5
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
