Kailua Cottage Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom, 1 Bath (Sleeps 2 + 1 sm child) Fully Equipped Private Studio Cottage

Aloha and welcome!

The Seashell studio cottage is a romantic, private and functional cottage, which is a two-minute walk from one of the most amazing beaches on the island. With a quick 10-minute walk you’ll arrive to adorable Kailua town, where you can enjoy a great meal in one of the numerous restaurants Kailua has to offer, shopping or just have a relaxing tropical drink on the beach in the Aloha spirit.

The Seashell studio is newly renovated with a small but functional kitchenette with a microwave, coffee/cappuccino maker, hotplate, refrigerator and toaster oven. It even has a large gas barbeque grill outside by the picnic area for all those grill masters. A cable ready TV/DVD combo, in-room Wi-Fi (high speed) Internet, linen and towels are all included. There is also a washer/dryer available on the property. You will retire to a comfy full size bed under a ceiling fan with the nice refreshing trade wind breezes throughout the studio at night. Parking is available on the property. We live on the property in the main house, but we truly value your privacy. We are available at any time to answer questions or give excellent advice/recommendations to make this one of the most magical and memorial vacations for you.

Why Valentina Jones chose Kailua

Because it is simple, but romantic and most importantly, across the street from the beach

Sea Shell Cottage

The studio cottage is even better than described! You really are steps from one of the most beautiful beaches on Oahu, and I know because we visited most of them during our week stay. Across the intersection is a wonderful market, with awesome coffee and deli choices as you walk about 50 yards farther and arrive at the beach. It was peaceful, wonderfully supplied with towels, beach chairs, kayak and 2 bikes, and a well appointed kitchen(ette). The only reason its not a full kitchen is that there is no oven. However, the two burner table-top stove is awesome.
Our hostess and host were extremely helpful in recommendations for places to dine or shop, and were readily available to answer questions when we asked. They provide you with a private fenced yard, grill, patio table with 4 chairs to allow entertaining on the patio, and as much privacy as you wish to have. Mahalo to them both!!
We most definitely recommend this place to anyone wanting to be away from the concrete jungle of Honolulu or Waikiki, I know we had a much more relaxed and enjoyable trip than anyone staying in any high-rise hotel!

素敵なバカンスを過ごすことができました!

  • 5 of 5
去年、初めて滞在し素晴らしかったので、今年はこのコテージに滞在するためにハワイ旅行にやってきました。5歳の息子と二人で2週間滞在しました。
まず最初に、オーナー家族のもてなしが素晴らしかったです。息子もオーナー家族に再会するのが楽しみだったくらい。
何か困ったことがあっても、隣のオーナー宅からすぐに駆けつけ、解決してくれました。
コテージもまた素晴らしかったです。
オーナー自ら手掛けた内装はまるで雑誌のようだし、設備も申し分ありません。
環境もパーフェクトで、海は通りを渡ったすぐそこ。途中には、カラパワイマーケットがあるので大変便利です。
カヤック、ボディボード等、海で遊ぶ道具もそろっているので、飽きることなく海で遊べます。
自転車もあるので、自転車に乗れば5分ほどでカイルアの中心地まで行けます。
カイルアには、おいしいレストランやカフェもたくさんあるので、毎日昼は外食、夜はホールフーズで食材を買い出ししたり、木曜日のファーマーズマーケットで買い物をして、コテージで自炊していました。(炊飯器など一通りそろっています)
滞在中、一度だけワイキキへ出かけましたが、街中のバス停まで出れば、2ドル50セントで、40分ほどでアラモアナセンターに行くことができます。

のんびりと暮らすように旅がしたかったので、理想的な場所でした。
ハワイには何度も来たことがあって、ワイキキには飽きたな…という方、海辺でのんびりしたい方におすすめです。
私もまた次にいつ行こうかと、今から計画たてています^^

Great location and extras

  • 4 of 5
We stayed one week 2 adults and a 2 yr old. Bikes and snorkel gear were provided (baby seat too- but not attached to the bike- we used a carrier we brought with us) the place was within walking distance to the beach and a few stores- otherwise you could bike or drive but if you want to stay in Kailua you won't need to rent a car. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because:
1- I tried to email the landlord several times with no response. This was frustrating but we are pretty versatile so it wasn't a huge problem however had I had pressing concerns I'd have been more upset. The person that met us at the house Alyssa was great! Very helpful (when she could be) and prompt with her responses.
2- I hate tv let that be said but my bf doesn't agree lol when we arrived the tv wasn't working and we had to fix it ourselves. Again not a big deal but if we didn't fix it ourself it migh have been a few days. Not sure.
3- privacy is listed in the rental description. I assure you this is as private as you can get unless you go north shore. Private fenced yard. The landlord was away for our visit but the owner of the property was not. He was taking advantage of the tenants time away and redoing the kitchen. The noise was never an issue and he was quite friendly but we had a hard time parking/pulling into the drive a few times as well as the owner entering our area without notice. Again not a big deal but we are a bit of nudists so the surprise was more than likely on him.
Overall we had a fabulous time and would definitely return. Ps I loved the shampoo provided :) good luck and enjoy!

Perfect vacation!

  • 5 of 5
We spent six nights at the cottage. It was perfect. When we arrived we were greeted by a friend of Valentina's. There was a bottle of wine and chocolates for us to enjoy. The cottage was spotless, and had everything we needed to enjoy the beach. The bikes were perfect to cruise into town for brunch.

It is well located to explore the island, everything is within driving distance. There are some lovely walks nearby. We watched the sunrise every morning with our coffee on the beach - it really is only 2 minutes away!

When we had a question about laundry Valentina responded promptly, which was very helpful. Although we didn't meet our host she was available by phone or email, and we had a contact person in town if we needed anything.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place to friends or family, and hope I can go back some day!

Perfect location, great host

  • 5 of 5
Our stay in the quaint studio was the best. The hosts were very accommodating: providing plenty of beach-going equipment, a new gas grill, extra wine glasses, and just the perfect amount of interaction. The location is great - a very short trip to a beautiful beach and a locals market is right on the corner. Beat the Waikiki tourist trap and stay here- you will not regret it.

Hawaii Trip

Valentina is really sweet and the cottage was a very nice place to stay; we were able to enjoy the bikes; but without life jackets I would not use the Kayak (but it was very windy too). We could have possibly rented lifejackets but I thought everything needed for the Kayak came with it. IT was nice to have all the amenities (beach towels, matts, coffee maker, a little hot plate, kitchenette was very cute) so that we could reduce our costs and was especially nice being only a block from the beach. Only three not so nice things: We did see some roaches in the bathroom in middle of night (ugh), traffic was very loud late at night in window behind bed (if we close window that helped but then it cut down on fresh air breeze), and shower stall had slight mildew. Since we did not have any damage we are expecting to get our $50 back but still have not heard anything yet.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review. It is very important that we have feedback from our clients, so we know how to improve our service to make your stay at the Seashell Cottage an enjoyable experience. You have spoken and we have listened. Based on your feedback, we have purchased life jackets for the kayak, which is something we overlooked and was much needed for safety. We apology for those pesky little critters, you found in the bathroom. Unfortunately, due to our close proximity to the beach and doors not being fully closed, we do on rare occasions have unwanted visitors in the middle of the night, that breach our Terminix minefield. However, we would like to assure our clients, these occasions are rare. We pride ourselves in presenting a very clean and well-maintained cottage. So we’ll pay better attention and take greater care in ensuring our little piece of paradise is clean and no wall is left un-cleaned. Lastly, as a reminder to all our clients, we offer damage protection through a third party company for everyone’s peace of mind. Unless a client declines damage protection at booking, the third party insurance company will charge you a non-refundable fee of $49. Again, thank you for your kind words and valuable feedback. We hope you will visit the Seashell Cottage again soon.

Mahalo,
Valentina
