Soaring above the palm trees this beautiful private suite invites you to relax being soothed by the gentle tradewinids. Enjoy paradise having a panoramic view of the expansive Ko'olau Mountain Range. Watch the sunrise over the country club near Lanikai beach, and see the sunset behind Mount Olomana, the 'Matterhorn of Hawaii'.
The studio is private and quiet, it has a separate entrance, is situated over the garage,with private parking. It does not share any walls with the main house. In the studio is a queen size bed, futon, tile bathroom walk in shower, jacuzzi tub, galley kitchen,and walk in closet. There is a small private outdoor deck to relax and take in the views. We provide beach gear including snorkels , masks, fins, boogie boards, beach towels, and cooler.
Two of Hawaii's most famous beaches are just a 5 minute walk or 1 minute drive. Kailua beach is 2 miles long, and features Flat Island which is a bird sanctuary that you can visit. Lanikai beach is rated one of the 10 most beautiful beaches in the world, yet uncrowded and has a 'local feel.'
Swimming, kayaking, stand-up paddling, kite surfing, snorkeling, windsurfing, boogie boarding and surfing are popular activities at Kailua and Lanikai beaches.
A relatively easy hike is close by, with magnificent 360 degree views of the ocean and mountains.
We're just a five minute drive to Kailua where you can enjoy family and fine dining, and shopping Hawaiian relaxed style in the many contemporary shops.
Waikiki and Honolulu are 30 minutes away, for cultural events, museums, night life, endless restaurants and entertainment. Waikiki is a great place to learn to surf, and take ocean tours.
The North shore a beautiful one hour drive through mountains and pineapple farmland, is famous for world class surfing, botanical gardens, and ancient Hawaiian sites.
The Polynesian cultural center is just 45 minutes away for a day of experiencing a variety of island cultures from hula to fire dancing.
Whatever your interests, you can plan day trips and easily return to your private, quiet and romantic 'bird nest' hide-away.
I am an occupational therapist, yoga instructor and body worker. If you are interested, I offer private sessions to enhance your relaxation while vacationing here in Hawaii.
The Owner purchased this studio in 2003
It is a quiet neighborhood, 5 minutes walk or bikride to the 2 mile long Kailua beach, and close to Kailua town and schools, and not very crowded with tourists. It is within easy driving distance to the airport, and just 1/2 hour to Waikiki and Honolulu.
Very quiet, no thru traffic, nice neighborhood, close to best beaches,easy access to Honolulu.
Loved our stay! We have stayed in about ten VRBO's in the last six months. Far and away - this has been THE best! Fab view, comfy space and love Dan and Diane! Mahalo!
My stay here was amazing. I arrived a little bit earlier than expected and Dan, the owner, was still cleaning and preparing the home for me, however, he was extremely nice and allowed me to change and put my stuff in. What you see in the pictures is exactly what you get. The views from the lanai is breath taking.
Although there's no air conditioning in the unit, opening all of the windows gave you wonderful breeze throughout. The room also has a celing fan and additional fan provided. It is a short jog down the road to Kailua Beach Park and about a 3 min drive (you can actually walk there too, but I was too lazy) to Lanikai Beach. I opted to stay in Kailua specifically to spend my entire time on Lanikai Beach, so this place was absolutely perfect. Both Dan and his wife were so nice. The unit was very private with its own entrance, but they were always available should I need anything or had any questions. They have 3 super sweet dogs as well. They never bothered me one bit, but Dan did ask when I arrived if I had any issues with dogs and warned me of the ones he had first. They kept me company on the lanai a couple of times, which didn't bother me at all. I liked it. I really enjoyed my stay here and would reccommend it to anyone. I went to Hawaii to relax and that is exactly what I did. Away from all of the tourists that flock to Waikiki. The only problem I had there was having to leave. I can't wait to go back and will definitely stay here again.
We stayed in the apartment for 5 nights. After arriving Dan introduced us to his friendly dogs. The apartment has a balkony with a great mountain view. It was clean and comfortable.The wonderful beach of Lanikai is only a few minutes away. Dan and Diane are wonderful hosts. Dan made us aware of the lunar eclipse in the evening. We had an evening flight back and Dan allowed us to use his private shower on our last day, because the apartment was prepared for the next day. Thank you very much Dan for this. So we had a few more houres at the beach on our last day. We would come again.
My husband and I stayed here for two nights in March and highly recommend it. We arrived earlier than expected, but the owner graciously allowed us to leave our luggage and suggested places to hike and local restaurants while he prepared the apartment. The studio was clean with helpful maps and other information and had a beautiful mountain view. While the kitchen was very small, it included all the necessities for vacation eating. A breeze kept the studio cool at night. The beach looked to be a 10 -15 minute walk, and there were all kinds of beach supplies to use. We appreciated the off-street parking and lack of crowds. Finally, when we were ready to drive to the airport, the owner gave us tips about how the best route. The one drawback has nothing to do with the owner or the apartment itself but had to do with the neighbor’s young children who would scream and cry.
Fantastic studio, just right to ease us into our Hawaiian experience.
Hosts Dan and Diane were the best.
It was clean, bright, airy and private.
We will be back!!
