Stroll along the white sandy beaches of Lanikai Beach, named one of the top 10 beaches in the world by 2014 Travelers Choice! Only a 5 minute drive from our stunning one-bedroom. We are situated on a picturesque, family-friendly road with little road noise and traffic. Breathtaking Kailua Beach is 0.8 miles away and will only take you 15 minutes to walk or 3 minutes to drive. Charming Kailua Town is also only a 12 minute walk away (0.6 miles) where you will find restaurants, shopping and grocery stores. Take a stroll through Whole Foods, try a shave ice with local flavors like Lilikoi, Mango or Pineapple at Island Snow or grab a coffee from Kalapawai Beach Café and walk the beach.

You will discover lush, tranquil tropical gardens, a gorgeous lily pond complete with a waterfall and fragrant flowers on the property. The 10,000 square-foot property offers peace and quiet, making it the perfect refuge to come home to after a long day exploring the island. Unwind beside the sparkling salt-water pool and spa that boasts a waterfall.

The unit features Hawaiian culture through stunning artwork, tropical décor with an island feel. The one-bedroom unit, located at the front of the property, has 700 square feet of living space that overlooks your own private Gazebo. This unit is perfect for guests wanting to cook as it comes fully furnished with a full kitchen: stove, fridge, microwave and a private BBQ. After a long day in the Hawaiian sun, you can rest your head on a sublime King Bed and cool off with a top of the line A/C wall unit and watch a movie on the large flat screen TV. A hand-painted tropical sink in the bathroom brings the island life inside. A sparkling salt-water pool and spa is available in the backyard for your use along with lounging chairs.

WIFI is available so you can keep up with emails and post all of your vacation photos. There is also a shared laundry facility on site and one off-street parking stall.

Not my favorite experience

  • 3 of 5

We traveled from Maui for a trade show and stayed in the studio on this property. When we arrived, there was a "welcome note" from the owner telling us not to communicate with anyone asking questions in the area because her rental was legal; however, we were instructed to tell anyone asking that we were a "friend" of the owner's and just visiting (not paying guests).. This was very awkward to us.

Then, we opened the booklet on the table prepared for our stay and found:

1) We would be charged a significant amount if we left the A/C on in our room while we were away.

2) Another unusual upcharge if we left the pool/Jacuzzi on

3) There was a disagreement of some sort or contention with a neighbor and if approached by him we were to tell the owner immediately

We found these things a bit disturbing. We also felt we couldn't enjoy the pool area with any privacy because the back of the house and living area was completely open (no walls) to the pool and back yard area. This gave all of the other guests and the owner a view of us if we had decided to swim. Again, a bit awkward.

Overall, the unit was mediocre. Needed a good cleaning - mold in the shower and on the shower curtain, a layer of dust under the bed, and a pitcher we decided to use for iced tea was filthy.

The A/C worked very well, and plenty of dishes and utensils were provided. Bed was okay.

Too far to walk to town but just close enough to walk to the beach (as long as you don't have to carry chairs, coolers, etc.).

We felt, for the money, we would have rather had a hotel with daily maid service, soap/shampoo an upgraded bed and cleaner surroundings. We have not stayed in many studios; however, we have rented entire homes and condos before and found them to be much nicer and with better amenities without the "warnings" regarding neighbors and such.

Finally, remember this property is in very close proximity to neighbors; in other words, it is a subdivision with very small lots and hardly a "Luxurious Resort" as described.

Owner's Response: Sometimes reviews just make your heart sink, especially if you are me (the owner), who wants all of her guests to have a great experience. I have built this property from scratch and devote myself to going the extra mile. I even recently paid an electrician $600 dollars to get lights for the gazebo at night. It is so wonderful to be outside at night! I went swimming at flat island, which is three minutes from our property and it was totally amazing! I think these people don’t realize how fortunate we are in our location and the fact that there are no hotels on this side of the island. It is a small, beachy, gorgeous place. My backyard landscaping and pool are stunning and actually private for 95 % of the time. Did they hear the fountain in the fish pond at the front of the house that we maintain with a lot of effort? The shower and bathroom in this unit are my pride and joy, I hand painted the mural, the fish installed in the travertine and the starfish in the pebbles on the floor. I guess this guest doesn’t appreciate what an amazing property we have and how much work it has taken to make this place a great resort. Cant win them all just know I care and have worked very hard to give all of my guests a relaxing Hawaiian experience.

Nothing more we could of asked for!

  • 5 of 5

WOW!!! I don't even know where to begin. We had such an amazing trip to Oahu. Everything was perfect. So close to everything. We walked to the beach a couple of times or it is a short 5 minute drive, if that. The Coconut Cabana was home away from home. You truly felt like a welcomed guest at her home. So much attention to detail...from the owner's lovely art that decorated the space, comfortable furniture, a binder full of useful tips about the area, a selection of books to choose from when you just want to sit by the pool and get lost in a book, beach chairs, coolers, plenty of beach towels. And not to mention, super clean! I can't even think of anything else we could of needed. You won't get this from a hotel! I will definitely book here again if we ever make it back! Mahalo Susanne!!

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This suite is in the perfect location in Kailua. It is minutes away from restaurants, shopping, beaches, hiking, golf courses and more. The unit was clean, functional (full kitchen + BBQ), and the artwork was a nice touch. The pool and hot tub are also nice to use in the evenings. We really enjoyed our stay and appreciated the use of bikes, beach gear, coolers, frisbees etc. Mahalo!

Cute property looks just like the pictures!

  • 4 of 5

The property is small but has everything one needs and more! The shower is definitely the show piece for the inside. We enjoyed the gazebo and the hot tub almost everyday we were there. Really convenient to the beach, shopping, and restaurants. Loved Buzz's for both lunch and dinner. Could use more lighting in the back at night as it is very dark to get to laundry and the pool this time of year. Staff was friendly and efficient and made our stay enjoyable.

Great stay in Hawaii

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful experience at this property. The accommodations were very comfortable. We loved having our own private lanai. The property management staff was very friendly and helpful. We would go back to this rental anytime we are on Oahu. Highly recommended place to stay!!!
