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 10 to 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!

Fabulous stay in one of the best towns on Oahu!

  • of 5
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.

The Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5
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!

Amazing Location

  • 5 of 5
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!

Perfect spot

Stayed here for three nights and loved it. The owners really did a fantastic job with the room and all the details. Not to mention it was a short three minute walk to the beach!

I hope to stay here again!

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.
