Guestbook comments from the owner

"Hi Debbie,



I'm back in the dreary California winter, but I wanted to say Thank you for a wonderful week. Your place is perfectly located and outfitted, and

I can't think of a better place to stay. I met a lot of nice people, yourselves included, and I got to do a lot of fascinating, although muddy hikes. I even enjoyed the weather -- what's nicer than a tropical rain? Maybe I'll be staying with you again.

Yours truly, Jonathan"

Better than Home

  • 5 of 5

We spent a relaxing week here and totally enjoyed our stay! It was better than home since we did not have to do anything other than go to the beach or explore the island. The studio is ocated in a very quiet, safe neighborhood. The host has thought of everything in this studio: toiletries, cooking equipment (dishes, utensils, microwave, grill, fridge, toaster, rice cooker, coffee maker, and hotplate), beach things (towels, boogie boards, chairs, umbrellas, coolers and more). Everything was extremely clean and in good order. One of the nicest beaches on the island is a 5 minute walk from the unit (or an even shorter bike ride using one of the two bikes provided for guest use). The host has information about things to do and where to dine in the local area. We totally enjoyed our stay and appreciated the lovely touches of a variety of snacks and fruit that were provided when we arrived. (One of us was on crutches and appreciated the walk-in shower and the easy access into the unit-no steps).

Great studio

  • 4 of 5

Great little studio in Kailua. My husband and I stayed there for 5 nights, the place was very clean, the bathroom is huge with double shower. I did not feel that the carpet is damp like the other reviewer posted and I have lots of seasonal allergies, but I did not have to use my allergy medicine once. Debbie and Dave left us some drinks and snacks which was wonderful. Pretty much everything you need is there, towels, beach towels, beach chairs, boogie boards, and bikes. We rode the bike to town on a nearby bike path. The owners live right next door and they are very helpful. The walls are thin so sometimes you can hear people through the walls, but that doesn't bother me at all. It is definitely not a 5 star hotel, but you are only paying $120 a night. The best part is you away from all the craziness in Waikiki and 5 mins from one of the best beach in the world.

Beware: Not Even Close to a Five Star Rental

  • 1 of 5

First let me start by saying that we couldn't sleep comfortably here. The pictures made this unit look nicer than it actually is and the reviews were mostly good, so we were shocked upon arrival. I seriously thought someone was already staying there when we arrived as there were personal items all around the unit and not near as tidy as the photos. Our main issue though, was the carpet (think damp carpet due to the proximity of the beach, the kind you don't want to walk barefoot on!). In general, carpet is NOT what should be considered "low-allergen" as listed in the description. The A/C above the TV worked briefly, then shut off and the unit quickly became stuffy and hard to breathe in. The filter had fuzz hanging down and desperately needed to be cleaned as well. Opening the windows didn't help much as the blinds didn't allow air flow and if you raised them, you had no privacy. Speaking of privacy. If you read "romantic" like we did, you might be surprised that there are 2 doors in the hallway to the adjoining unit. The short time we were there, we heard nothing but coughing and talking from next door, again not romantic or private. Lastly, when we emailed the owner to let her know the unit was causing allergy attacks and we would be unable to stay there, she did not offer much assistance and included some comments making it feel as if she was observing our coming/going, etc…again, not so private if the owner is on-site watching your movements.

Owner's Response: This is the first time I have had to write a rebuttal to a review. I have a 100% listing quality and a 5 star average of 35 reviews. So this guest is definitely an aberration. The carpet is a low allergen carpet, a little over a year old. It is very clean and was not damp at all. There were no personal items left there and everything was very clean and tidy including the AC filter which had just been cleaned that day before they arrived. The AC works perfectly. The guest had changed the mode on it. This guest neglected to call me once he had a concern about the AC. I make it very clear if there are any problems or concerns to call, text, email, & contact me immediately. Instead he left the next morning and emailed me that the AC wasn't working and never mentioned anything about the condition of the unit other than he and his wife had allergies and had concerns about the air flow. My response to his email was that I was very disappointed that he did not contact me immediately as the AC was an easy fix by changing the mode back.

Fantastic studio near Kailua beach

  • 5 of 5

We loved the studio in Kailua. It was 2 blocks from the beach, which we took advantage of in spades. The studio comes with boogie boards and other beach stuff - everything we needed was there. With onsite parking, it was easy for us to get out and visit the rest of the town, Honolulu, and the rest of the island. We definitely recommend staying here.
