Overview

Kailua Studio Rental Photos and Description

Studio, 1 Bath (Sleeps 2.5)

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.

About Owner/Manager

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.

Why Owner/Manager chose Kailua

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.

What makes this studio unique

If you like the aloha spirit, sandy feet and the simple life, you will enjoy our spacious studio, Kailua by the Sea!

Great place to stay in Kailua!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely, relaxing stay! We loved the close walk to the beach and the space itself. We grilled and had yummy food from home a couple nights. The owners were very kind to us and also gave us lots of privacy. We hope to return sometime soon!

Quiet and close to beach

  • 5 of 5

We had a very relaxing and enjoyable stay. The studio was very clean and the owners went out of their way to make sure that we had everything we needed for our 2 young kids. It's a short walk to the beach, and they provide you with everything you need. Owners were very nice people and extremely helpful.

Outstanding Oahu! #Kailua

  • 5 of 5

If you want peace and quiet, a spotless and well thought out studio space with every thoughtful amenity, easy access to all that embodies Hawaii, and still be able to walk out your door to the beach then this is the spot! These host were quiet and allowed us complete privacy. We never even met them until day 6. They thought of many details from boogie boards and snorkeling gear, to beach towels and beach mats, to sun block and aloe, to a private outdoor dining space and a grill...the list goes on and on. They provided an oasis and made it easy to experience Oahu. We will stay here again. The location was great. We come from a small town so we liked the way it felt like home yet it had so much fun, great food, shopping, outdoor activities and more to offer. One of our favorite things about staying here was the quiet beach access. Turn the corner and you are about 400 feet from the beach! We grabbed the beach chairs, mats, boogie boards, and the cooler (all provided by owners) and we walked to a quiet picturesque beach. We loved waking up and brewing Hawaiian coffee. We'd sit and sip while gazing out the panoramic 360 degree view of palms, mountains, blue skies and a quaint neighborhood. We then would set out to hike to waterfalls, explore the island, or some other adventure the day held. This was better than any hotel or cabin we have EVER stayed in! It was quiet, accommodating, modern, clean, reasonably priced!

P.S. We loved Moke's for breakfast!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind and thoughtful review. I am so glad I got to meet you on day 6! If you guys had left before we bumped into each other, it would have been a first for us. We love to meet our guests - even for a quick chat. I'm happy to know you two had a wonderful time in beautiful Kailua. We also enjoy going to Mokes and Cinnamons for breakfast/brunch. Thank you for mentioning that in your review. Hope to see you again sometime and maybe we will run into each other a few more times next time!

Kailua Kool

  • 5 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: Yup - you just about summed it up. Studio is perfect for a couple or a couple with a young child who wants to hang out on Kailua/Lanikai Beach and visit the other attractions on Oahu. We also like the food at Kalapawai! Hope to see you again!

Great location, had everything we needed!

  • 5 of 5

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.

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. Several endangered waterfowl live in the marsh. 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.
