Just the mountain view every day was worth the price!

  • 5 of 5

This way exceeded our expectations. It was even nicer than the photos.

It was very very clean and had wonderful amenities. We enjoyed the view everyday.

It really felt like a Hawaiian vacation.

What a great experience!

  • 5 of 5

It was everything we expected for a "Homeaway!" Private, quiet, close to everything we wanted to do. Most mornings I walked five minutes to the beach for sunrise--I took a hundred or more photos over the week--followed by coffee and a yogurt bowl at Kalapawai Market.

Downtown Kailua is just a few blocks the other direction with all types of restaurants, grocery stores, boutiques and services.

The unit was clean and well-stocked with everything we needed.

Off-street parking is definitely a bonus.

This is our third trip to Kailua, but the first where we have had to find our own accommodations. We usually stay with our daughter.

The weather this trip was particularly hot and humid, but the windows, fans and air-conditioning helped keep this unit comfortable.

The lanai was a great place to relax and enjoy the mountain view.

If you want a quiet location away from the non-stop activity in Waikiki, this is definitely the place to consider.

We will be back again!

Owner's Response: Tom and Gina were just wonderful people. We were so happy that they had a great time enjoying themselves and yet had time to relax at home and enjoy the mountain view. Thanks for gracing us with your presence. Aloha!

Great unit and location

  • 4 of 5

This unit had all conveniences we needed and conveniently located to town and beach. Great mountain view from balcony. One unanticipated feature, however, is that the balcony is not private, as it is also the access for the neighboring unit.

Location, location, location!

I visited Kailua last week and stayed in the upstairs studio unit with an amazing view from the lanai. Sue was very helpful in getting everything reserved and even helped me switch to a larger unit when my sister decided to join us. The location of this house couldn't have been any better! It is on Kailua Rd. and is literally minutes away from 2 of the most beautiful beaches you have ever seen as well as plenty of shops and restaurants. The room was very clean and had everything we needed. They even provided beach towels and chairs, which we used daily. We had a very adventurous vacation that included hiking to waterfalls, floating in tidepools and kayaking from Lanikai beach to the Mokes. At the end of each day we slept like babies and woke up refreshed. I would 100% stay here again and recommend it to anyone. Thanks for everything! Kristy - Austin, TX

very very close to the most beautiful beaches: Kailua and Lanikai

  • 5 of 5

This was my first time to Hawaii. I am very impressed with the location of this place. The drive was less than 5 minutes to Kailua and Lanikai beach. Those two beaches are why I decided to come to Hawaii, and there were more amazing than pictures. There was always a place for parking at Kailua, at Lanikai we had to park in the neighborhood and walk, but it was less than 5 minute walk. We decided to split our time between the east part in Kailua and the Northwest part in Haleiwa. It was way better to be in Kailua because it was closer to more things to do such as Waikiki. I wish I never left.

The room was great for two people. I don't think pictures show, but there is a very large walk-in closet that made it possible for us to use as a place to change and hang clothes. Very clean, no bugs. Extra towels and bed sheets. The only thing is that I did not like the comforter on the bed, I think it is outdated. This is a small price to pay for paradise! I would definitely go back. Also, it seems there is a room being rented directly next door upstairs and people have to pass by your room, but they have their own balcony separated by a wall with a door. We didn't have any problems with this though.

Ran into the owner once or twice. She was very helpful and nice. I realized I accidentally left my charger after I dropped the key in the drop box and wasn't able to get a hold of anyone at the front door, so I just left it. I will consider coming to this same place simply because of location and price if I ever go back to Oahu.

Beautiful studio in Kailua

  • 5 of 5

The unit we stayed in was clean, spacious, and had a beautiful view of the mountains from the lanai. It was a wonderful place to stay, within a short walk from the beach, and a little bit longer walk (~1 mile) to shops and places to eat. Our host was very quick to respond to us when needed, and had very clear and useful instructions for finding the house, and our room (which was one of several on the property). We will definitely be looking forward to staying here again on our next trip to Kailua!

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your visit. According to google maps, we are .6 miles to Starbucks. Right next to Starbucks is Jamba Juice, then Teddys Burgers, then Maui Tacos. Right across the street on Hahani St., is Formaggios Italian food, and Saeng's Thai Cuisine. Also, right across the street, on Kailua Rd. is Times Supermarket. Indian food, then 6-7 stores down is Lanikai Juice, Mexican Food etc. another 1.5 blocks is Whole Foods. 2 blocks down from our home in the other direction is island Snow Shave ice, pizza and other restaurants. Another block and you're at the beach! But, being spoilt Hawaiians, we drive, so we can spend the extra 3 min. At the beach :-)
