Located in a lovely beachside town, Kailua By The Sea is a second floor detached studio with a private entrance and lanai (balcony). The room is designed for relaxing and getting into an aloha state of mind.
A five-minute stroll around the corner (200 yards or 0.1 mile!) takes you to our secluded beach access on Kailua Beach; the center of Kailua town is less than a mile away (0.7 miles).
Newly constructed in 2013, the 485 sq. ft. room takes advantage of the trade winds but has a split system A/C and a ceiling fan to keep you cool when the trade winds stop blowing. Insulated walls and double-glazed windows keep the room very quiet. No one lives beneath the studio and there are no other rental units on the property.
Rinse off the sand in the spacious shower which uses a heat pump water heater. Dimmable LED lights set the mood for a relaxing evening.
Sleep comes easy on the comfortable king size bed which has a top quality memory foam mattress. Just like in the best resorts, everything that touches your skin, including the duvet cover, is freshly laundered when guests depart.
Enjoy indoor or outdoor dining on the lanai. Prepare simple meals in the kitchenette equipped with a microwave, toaster oven and electric skillet. A private bbq grill is also provided for guest use. A 40-inch TV, in-room WIFI (high speed) and designated off-street parking are also included.
The room will be stocked with a few complimentary items for your first morning's breakfast.
We have two bikes for rent. There is no washer/dryer for guest use but there are self-service laundromats and dry cleaners located nearby.
We live on-site but we value your privacy. Knock on our door if you need anything or if you want to 'talk story.' We love chatting with our guests and sharing our knowledge of our beautiful island home.

We are long-time Kailua residents. We are an ocean-loving family that enjoys making new friends, traveling, photography, snorkeling and stargazing. We love Kailua and we do what we can to take care of our beautiful beach town.
Why Owner/Manager chose Kailua
We wanted a home by the sea in Kailua. We love that we can walk to one of the most beautiful beaches in the world in five minutes. The beach at night is also magical - with sand crabs scuttling about and moonlight reflecting on the water. We built the studio primarily for family and friends who visit, but we also enjoy sharing it with people from all over the world. Several of our guests have left a penny behind with a wish to return. We hope you will stay with us and enjoy our beautiful corner of the world.

What a gem!
Stayed in this fantastic studio for our first trip to Kailua in mid-March. 1 minute walk to the most beautiful beach we've ever visited. Although the weather didn't cooperate, we still had an amazing time. Such a great little beach town! Fun shops, restaurants, coffee spots, bike trails, parks, and hikes all within walking distance. We loved the location of the studio - so close to the beach and less than a 10 minute stroll to town. So many great amenities in this super clean and well-kept studio - everything you need for the perfect stay! Great outdoor patio for meals and cocktails! Don't miss Buzz's for great food and mai-tai's or Kalapawai Market!
Perfect for a laid back Hawaii vacation
We loved our stay here! This place was absolutely perfect for us. We loved sitting on the lanai in the mornings and evenings. The beach is incredibly close, only a five minute walk. After driving around the island we have determined Kailua is the absolute best place to stay, particularly this place.
Close to the beach and town. Really clean and spacious for a studio!
We absolutely loved our stay here! The place was immaculate and really spacious for a studio! We loved being a block off the beach. The hosts really thought of everything when it comes to the amentities. Lots of beach stuff to use, a safe in the room, extra towels, shampoo, conditioner, soap and lotion stocked in the bathroom. We would definitely stay here again!
Perfect studio apartment just a couple blocks from Kailua Beach
We loved this little studio above the garage--it was great having a little kitchen, and we walked to the beach almost every day. Extras included beach towels, a cute picnic basket (complete with two wine glasses and corkscrew), and shampoo/condition dispenser in the shower. Everything was very clean and neat. Would readily stay here again.
Great location. Well equipped and comfy. We enjoyed our stay very much.
All good things to say about our stay here and visiting Kailua and Kualoa. Thanks to Denise and the hosts for the advice and warm welcome.
Very clean and inviting.
Everything you need to enjoy your stay.
Take your morning coffee to the beach and watch the sunrise. Spend the day frolicking at the beach! Bodyboard, kayak, windsurf, kiteboard or stand-up paddle on Kailua Bay. If you are lucky, a turtle might swim right up to you! When you need a break from ocean activities, visit Kawainui Marsh, the largest wetland in Hawaii. Several endangered waterfowl live in the marsh. (Birds are most active early morning or a little before sunset.) There are also several hikes in the Kailua-Lanikai area. Browse the beach-chic boutiques and try the restaurants in Kailua town. Take a long walk on the beach at sunset and say hello to the locals. When you are ready for the hustle and bustle of Waikiki, take a 30-minute drive over the mountain. All other major tourist attractions on the island are no more than an hour's drive from beautiful, laid back Kailua.
