Overview

Kuulei Tract Studio Rental Photos and Description

Studio, 1 Bath (Sleeps 2.5)

*Calendar is managed off-site. Please inquire about availability and our monthly rates*

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; a 15 minute walk takes you to Kailua town (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.

About Owner/Manager

We are long-time Kailua residents. We are an ocean-loving family that enjoys traveling, surfing (older son), bowling (younger son), frisbee (dog*), photography and stargazing. *Our well-behaved sweet dog hangs out with us and loves the beach as much as we do!

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 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.

What makes this studio unique

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 photos to share with friends and family, inquire about our special guest rates.

Paradise

  • 5 of 5

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!

Clean, close to the beach, and quiet

  • 5 of 5

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.

Peaceful and clean

  • 5 of 5

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.

A Stone's Throw from the Beach

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here for 1 week. We found the large studio to be very private, bright and airy. The unit was very clean and well-maintained. The bed was comfy, there was a handy BBQ and a nice private lanai. The best thing for us was the 5 minute walk to beautiful Kailua beach. Our host was easy to reach and very accommodating. I highly recommend this condo!

Perfect babymoon getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We could not have been happier with the suite overall and greatly appreciated all the extras!

We visited Kailua while I was 29-30 weeks pregnant (last week) (maybe not recommended in terms of overall traveling comfort...lol) but having beach chairs, a big umbrella snorkel gear, and towels included, made everything just that much more enjoyable and easy. The bed was exceptionally comfy, bedding and pillows were perfection and even the temperature inside the suite was excellent. Although the blackout blinds were also appreciated, waking up to a gorgeous 180 degree view made us feel much further back from the road than you are. Beautiful views and natural light. Sunrises at the high breakfast table were really peaceful.

There's no question that road noise is obvious during certain times of day, (something we were nervous about) but it was never enough to disturb or bother us. Some locals just seemed to have nosier cars and music systems than we expected.

Incredibly friendly hosts and adorably well kept home and yard. One of the nicest in the neighborhood by far.

The convenient 3-4 min walk to the most secluded area of Kailua beach. Also recommend seeing Lannakai beach early morning (before the crowds) for some of the calmest, most peaceful swimming beaches I've ever seen. The water was like glass!

Highly recommend this suite, completely adorable and exceeded our expectations.

Car: recommended

Take your morning coffee to the beach and watch the sunrise. Spend the morning 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. 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.
