About Sue W. Brown

We've lived here happily for 30 years. After our children left for college, we decided to offer our space to nice people who want to vacation in Kailua to enjoy themselves and life.It'ts fun at the Mokes (mountains) off Lanikai Beach, a 5 min. drive from Kailua Beach. Kailua beach is three blocks from our home. Kayak rentals and Island Snow shaved ice is 2.5 blocks from our home on the way to the beach.

Sue W. Brown purchased this studio in 2000

Why Sue W. Brown chose Kailua

This is a convenient location, near the beach, tennis courts, public olympic-size pool, shops, schools, restaurants, basketball courts....close to just about everything. You can cruise at the beach, swim, sunbathe, look for sea turtles.... or walk around Kawainui Marsh, a nature preserve and look for fresh water turtles and native birds....We are active with art & dance classes, so we aren't home too much. But since we are both born and raised in Hawaii, we would be happy to help travelers with any information they need.

What makes this studio unique

This is a great location halfway between the beach and Kailua town for restaurants and shopping. You can just cruise and walk around Kailua if you wish. We're just 3 blocks from Starbucks, Cold Stone Creamery, Fat Boy's (reasonable gourmet, local fast food, Maui Tacos, Teddy's Burgers, and the supermarket. If you wanted to be relaxed and not drive, we are 1/2 block to theBus, where for $2.50 you may catch theBus anywhere, to downtown Honolulu to visit the State capitol, etc, to SeaLife Park and it's giant sea tank of fishes and sharks, to the big waves on the North Shore, or even to Waikiki to avoid having to find parking there. You're even free to borrow our bikes, they're old but they'll get you around Kailua. Life is short, be mellow, be happy and our home is a great launching ground for that.

Walk to Beach. Orchid studio. Nice Relaxing
average rating of 4.3333335 based on 30 reviews

Great for a solo budget traveler, very close to the beach

  • 5 of 5

This is an excellent deal. Ron and Sue were kind and helpful whenever I needed them. The suite is very close to the beach and walking distance (10-15 minutes) to grocery stores, as well. Expect the suite to be a little dark, humid, and old -- there's no way you can get a deal this good without those things. It has everything you need, though, for this sleepy and charming beach town. Mahalo, Ron and Sue :)

Great place to stay for the budget-minded traveler.

  • 5 of 5

Orchid Studio is as advertised - a studio room with small kitchen & bathroom. It's clean & furnished with fridge, microwave & hot plate, dishes, towels, etc. The owners were very helpful in providing appropriate bedding for my husband, who is allergic to scented laundry soap. About the only thing I missed was a nightstand on both sides of the bed, and the only available chair and table was on the lanai. If you are looking for peaceful Oahu digs and don't want to break the bank, I highly recommend Orchid Studio!

We really enjoyed the close proximity to beach and shopping. We love Kailua.

  • 4 of 5

The room is bright and cheery. Very light cooking only. Very clean room and well kept property. We biked everyday. Fun! I would return and give 5 stars if they update pillows and bed. If you want easy access location, this is great. Owners are nice folks too!

Owner's Response: Hi Karen, Thank you very much for your visit. We enjoyed having the best glutin free bakers visit!. We do provide 4 pillows ( many places only provide 2) . Some people like the thin ones, and some people like the thick ones. We have now thrown out two pillows and there are two brand-new pillows there. That is a $1500 Nikken healthy bed. However, I do realize that it is quite firm. I will work on replacing it . Thanks again!! Aloha, Ron

Worst ever!

  • 1 of 5

Bad smell from sewage inside the room. The TV wouldn't work. The fan did not adjust. The smoke detector went off from the steam in the shower, I had to run outside naked to get a chair to reach it and disconnect the battery.I placed three calls to the mgr. because the key and lock on the door were broken and all our things were locked inside. Never got a call back! Not a fun stay. This review wont submit without me giving it a star..under protest I will give it one!
