5 MINUTE WALK TO BEACH, BEST VALUE! - ASK ABOUT OUR FALL SPECIAL

Kailua Studio Rental Photos and Description

Studio, 1 Bath (Sleeps 2)

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. 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, DVD, in-room WIFI (high speed) and designated off-street parking are also included.

The room will be stocked with items for your first morning's breakfast.

We have two bikes for rent. As there is no washer/dryer for guest use, a wash-and-fold laundry service is offered for a nominal fee.

We live on-site but we value your privacy. Knock on our door if you need anything or just want to 'talk story.'

*Please note that we respond to all inquiries within 24 hours. If you haven't heard from us, email us directly at kailuabythesea at gmail dot com or call us.

FALL SPECIAL FOR NEW BOOKINGS ONLY: $135/night (plus cleaning fee and tax) for reservations under 7 nights or $128/night (plus cleaning fee and tax) for reservations of 7 nights or more. Offer is valid for stays between September 2 and November 15, 2014. Reserve by September 1, 2014 to take advantage of this rate.

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!

wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I had a wonderful stay at Kailua by the Sea. The room had everything we needed. The bathroom was well stocked with all the toiletries you might need--shampoo, conditioner, even q-tips! The bed was very comfortable and I loved the coffee. Every time we drove into Honolulu or Waikiki, we were very grateful that we were not staying there. We definitely enjoyed the calm and non-touristy atmosphere of Kailua. Also, we found many good restaurants in the area.

Kailua by the Sea AKA Heaven

  • 5 of 5
One never knows how much a q-tip is needed until there aren't any, turning the water on in the shower and it is just the right the temp at once, plus clean light space are only three things that come to mind when I think of this perfectly placed location. The best may be the comfort of the bed, we just loved all of it and the red rocker on the lanai as well. Oh, and the really good coffee. Did I say we really liked the q-tips?

Great Studio Rental

  • 5 of 5
This studio apt was perfect for us. It was spotlessly clean and very well equipped. The bed was very comfortable. We used air conditioning at night and it worked perfectly. They even provided start up supplies- milk, coffee, cereal, fruit, yogurt. There were large beach towels, cooler, lots of beach equipment and lots of other stuff. I would recommend this rental to ant couple who don't want to cook a lot. There is a toaster oven and electric fry pan but no stove. Very nice unit!

Cute studio in Kailua

  • 5 of 5
We loved our experience at "Kailua by the Sea". The owners were very nice and gave us a lot of privacy. The studio itself is very updated and in a wonderful location. Kailua is by far my favorite place to stay on Oahu. Loved it!
