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!

Kailua by the sea!

  • 5 of 5

This place was nothing short of our little slice of paradise! So conveniently located to great beaches, it was easy to start each morning with sandy toes. There were very few people on the beaches in the morning but picks up as the day progresses which was a plus. We did not have a car for the first half of our stay but that did not hinder us much since there was so many places conveniently located around the rental. Once we did have our car, this rental served as a great 'home base' as you might call it. The space is so nice and stocked very well and the bathroom and bed are from a dream! All the extras provided also served as a nice touch and you could tell these owners put a lot of time, thought and effort to ensure that their guest have the best stay possible. I would highly recommend this place to anyone staying in Oahu and am already jealous of its future tenants! If we ever did return, we sure known where we will be staying at!

Mahalo!!

Loved Our Stay

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here during our trip to Oahu. It was close to a great beach (that wasn't crowded) and also within driving distance to all the other places we wanted to visit during our trip. Our ten days here flew by and we had a great time. The property had everything that we needed, we ate breakfast and drank our coffee there each morning before going out and exploring the island. The bed is comfortable and studio is very modern and clean and all the extras provided like towels, shampoo, boogie boards, and a cooler. Would love to come back again to the same place.

Owner's Response: Mahalo for your kind review. We really enjoyed meeting you and Carolyn. Although, you did a lot of activities and sightseeing in 10 days, there is more to do and see on Oahu. Come back soon!

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!

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.
