|Minimum Stay||3 nights|
Located in a lovely beachside town, Kailua By The Sea is a second floor detached studio with a private entrance and lanai (balcony). The room is designed for relaxing and getting into an aloha-zen state of mind.
A five-minute walk around the corner (200 yards) takes you to our secluded beach access on Kailua Beach; a 15 minute walk takes you to Kailua town (0.7 miles).
Newly constructed in October 2012, the 485 sq. ft. room and lanai takes advantage of the trade winds but has a split system A/C and a ceiling fan to keep you cool when the trade winds stop blowing. Insulated walls and double-glazed windows keep the room quiet. No one lives beneath the studio and there are no other rental units on the property.
Rinse off the sand in the spacious shower which uses a heat pump water heater. Dimmable LED lights set the mood for a romantic evening.
Sleep comes easy on the comfortable king size bed. Just like in the top resorts, everything that touches your skin, including the duvet cover, is freshly laundered when guests depart.
Enjoy indoor or outdoor dining on the lanai. Prepare simple meals in the kitchenette equipped with a microwave, toaster oven and electric skillet. A private bbq grill is also provided for guest use. A 40-inch TV, in-room WIFI (high speed) and designated off-street parking are also included.
The room will be stocked with a few items for your first morning's breakfast.
We have two bikes for rent. There is no washer/dryer for guest use but there are self-service laundromats and dry cleaners located nearby.
We live on-site but we value your privacy. Knock on our door if you need anything or if you want to 'talk story.' We love chatting with our guests and sharing our knowledge of our beautiful island home.
We are long-time Kailua residents. We are an ocean-loving family that enjoys traveling, surfing (older son), bowling (younger son), frisbee (dog), photography and stargazing.
We wanted a home by the sea in Kailua. We love that we can walk to one of the most beautiful beaches in the world in under five minutes. The beach at night is also magical - with sand crabs scuttling about and moonlight reflecting on the water. We built the studio primarily for family and friends who visit, but we also enjoy sharing it with people from all over the world. Several of our guests have left a penny behind with a wish to return. We hope you will stay with us and enjoy our beautiful corner of the world.
If you like the aloha spirit, sandy feet and the simple life, you will enjoy our spacious studio, Kailua by the Sea!
This property is just right if you're planning on using it for sleeping, reading, relaxing and the like. It is a medium sized studio, one room, kitchenette, dining area, bathroom, so it's not really intended for more than a couple people on a get away. Having said that, it was perfect for us as we hit the usuals, Pearl Harbor, Waimea Bay, Waikiki and other "spots" on the other sides of Oahu, but it was especially fantastic for just staying put and sitting in the sun on beautiful Kailua bay. It's a very private and secluded beach and is just a three minute max walk to get there. If you've never been to Oahu, this is the town to stay in as it's laid back and beach-ee, and lots of good food especially the insanely delicious gumbo at Kalapawai Deli/Cafe (check tripadvisor.com for restaurant recommends) and then drive to the other sides of the island for the busier, more touristee stuff. Great hosts and great property! We will likely return.
This little studio was exactly what we needed. Great location, close to the beach, the pillboxes in Lanikai and our friends who live at Hokulani in Kailua. Walk to Kalapawai Market, restaurants, shops, etc. Clean and tidy, with plenty of space for the two of us, Wifi, nice King bed, kitchen with fridge, microwave and dishes. Air conditioning if you need it, lots of windows for breezes though. Keep in mind it is close to the road. Wasn't too noisy but with windows open you can hear a little road noise in the mornings. Didn't bother us at all though. There is a TV but no cable - I believe it is setup with Netflix, Hulu, and we could connect our computers to it. But not much TV watching with what is outside! Owners are very gracious and helpful. We had a great time and would definitely come back.
This is the second time we have stayed here. It's so close to the beach.
We like the town going to the Farmers Market and lots of shopping
near by. Great parking and very clean room. Hope to visit again
next year. K & A
My boyfriend and I had a great experience at Kailua by the Sea. The owners were always available., but gave us 100% privacy. We were right around the corner from the beach access and had several beach items to use during our stay.
Kailua is beautiful and I can't recommend the beach enough. Shiyana and Richard had fruit, yogurt, oatmeal and coffee waiting for us. There is a small fridge/freezer, microwave, coffee maker and electric skillet to use. We made eggs and ate fruit several mornings of our stay.
The rental is on a busy road, but you can close the windows and use the AC if you need to. It's very cutely decorated with nice sheets and towels. The rental is spacious and quite comfortable. There is even a nice area on the patio to sit and enjoy the weather. If you stay here, you'll be happy.
My girlfriend and I LOVED our stay here! The studio was modern and incredibly clean which we both appreciated very much. The neighborhood surrounding the studio was very quiet and safe. The beach was a very short walk (approximately 5 minutes) and the beach was never very crowded compared to the beaches in Honolulu. We had absolutely no complaints and we are both already looking forward to our next stay here!
Pick this place! It is amazingly clean and comfortable and has all of the necessary amenities you could think of -- including A/C! The family provides an extremely handy notebook of things to do and restaurants to check out, which we didn't fully appreciate until the next rental didn't have one. The best part about this place is how close everything was. We had a car, but even if we didn't there were plenty of great locations in walking distance and a nice sidewalk to get there. The beach is barely a block away! And its beautiful, quiet and clean! We unfortunately did not get to meet the owners because they were on a cruise and I just hope they know what a great time we had! In our opinion this is a far better than any hotel because it felt like home. Thank you for everything!
Watch the sunrise from Lanikai Beach. Walk to Kailua Bay for swimming, bodyboarding, kayaking, windsurfing, kiteboarding or stand-up paddling. If you are lucky, a turtle might swim up to you! When you need a break from ocean activities, visit Kawainui Marsh, the largest wetland in Hawaii. There are also several lovely hikes in the Kailua-Lanikai area. Browse the beach-chic boutiques and try the restaurants in Kailua town. Waikiki is a 30-minute drive and all other major tourist attractions are no more than an hour's drive from beautiful, laid back Kailua.
