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 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 traveling, photography, stargazing, kayaking, bowling (younger son) and frisbee (dog*). Our well-behaved sweet dog hangs out with us (and in the back yard) and loves the beach as much as we do!
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 under 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.
If you like the aloha spirit, sandy feet and the simple beach life, you will enjoy our studio, Kailua by the Sea!
We are professional photographers, so if you are getting married on Oahu or would like some beautiful beach portraits to share with friends and family, inquire about our awesome guest rates.
We like this place and the owner so much that my wife and I have stayed here twice now. Super clean and cozy, close to the beach and walking distance to restaurants and the grocery store. Highly recommend!
(Sorry, late review). This place was great! It had everything we needed for such a limited space. The location was just perfect for me and my wife. It's a good 15 minute walk to Kalapawai Market for some coffee, which is right next to Kailua Beach. 15 minutes the other way is Kalama Beach. I would definitely come back here.
The moment we pulled in the drive way we were greeted with a smile and Warm hospitality. A Nice Bday greeting for my wife welcomed us as we entered the studio. The views were perfect an room was exactly what anyone would want when on a vacation. Extremely clean an had every amenity that u could want or need, even aloe vera gel for our sun burns. Lol. All in all the Room and Vacation was PERFECT. An hope we can one day return to this perfect getaway.
It was absolute paradise. It was a place I actually wanted to spend more time at but was out enjoying all the fabulous sites. It was truly super close to a great beach. They provided extra touches that really made a difference. Really appreciates the speedy response to any questions as well! Perfection!
We had a wonderful time at Kailua by the sea. The place was clean and newly updated, just a 2 minute walk to the beach. Shiyana was the perfect host, friendly and generous. It was great to have the boogie boards and snorkeling gear. The location of the house was perfect for going into town and we loved the quiet neighborhood.
The owners were respectful of privacy but friendly when asked for info. The room was full of helpful information on the area. The windows and breeze were amazing and the studio was very clean. The weather was not amazing but we enjoyed our time in the studio regardless. We kept the windows open and enjoyed the view of the mountains. It is walking distance to all 3 farmers markets which were a highlight for us. (The Pig and the Lady Vietnamese food at the Thursday night market was fantastic.) Plenty of kitchen supplies for preparing and eating our papaya, pineapple and banana fruit salad. The beach was quiet and seemed like mostly locals. The road noise was noticeable but wasn't a problem unless we watched tv with the windows open. So we closed them for tv viewing! A/C wasn't needed much but worked just fine. Overall we would stay here again if we came back to Kailua.
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 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.
