Kailua Studio Rental Photos and Description

Studio, Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Serene tropical comfort in your own private studio just steps away from 1 of the top 5 beaches of the world's best. Walk on miles of white sandy beach, wind surfing, kite sailing, boogie boarding and kayaking or swimming.

The Tropical Breeze studio boasts garden views, tropical tradewinds and the soothing sounds of the ocean waves. Come and enjoy the aloha spirit and warm sunshine.

The studio, has high ceilings with a tropical-designed decor. Large Queen size bed, with sitting area, this is truly island living at its finest. A kitchenette, and a large airy bathroom, completes your studio. Residence has own private entrance, parking and large yard. This studio is completely air-conditioned with the newest Eco-friendly Unit plus has its own Solar heated hot water for the extra large walk-in shower.

The studio is located at the Beach, on a private lane and has a private gate with steps to the Beach (maybe 60 seconds?).

You cannot get any closer to the Beach unless you are prepared to pay for Beach-front.

Island espresso and outside eating all located within a few short steps! As an added bonus, our studio offers beach chairs, beach towels as well as an outside BBQ.... Again, aloha spirit, warm sunshine and a clean beautiful beach. What else could you ask for during your next Hawaiian vacation?

2nd stay here

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at the tropical breeze celebrating our 45 th anniversary. Again I have to say how amazing the piece of paradise is. The room takes me back to a time as a toddler at my grandparents home in lanikai. So much old Hawaiian character to the room. We live it here and will be returning next year two times. I'm back in the mainland now and miss the sounds of the ocean at night and birds in the morning. Don't forget to get your shave ice at island snow. We've stayed at 3 different places in 6 years and this is the best place. Joanie is a wonderful host. Until next year aloha

This place is all that is described by Joanie and Lori. It is amazing, peaceful, great location to the beach, no busy traffic, quiet, you can hear the birds and ocean. This was our third time staying at a vrbo in kailua and by far THE BEST! The tropical breeze cottage inside was like being at home but not. It has everything you need and more. Joanie is such a gracious host and a beautiful spirit. We love it here and will return on our future visits.

Perfect place for your honeymoon!

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I stayed at Tropical Breeze for our honeymoon...8 nights. It was wonderful and exactly as described. The owner was very friendly. We had our privacy. The beach was a very short walk down a pathway. Kailua beach is absolutely perfect. We explored the island and still felt that Kailua beach was the best with the most perfect sand. We snorkeled down the road at Lanikai Beach.

I loved the bathroom. It is spacious and has a big shower. It was nice to have the washer & dryer to use. There were plenty of towels, wash clothes, etc. Also, beach chairs, mats, beach towels, ice chest, etc were available to use. The bed was very comfy and there was plenty of storage space. We used the pool once which was nice. I would definitely like to stay here again. Since it was our first time to Hawaii, we did alot of sight-seeing and exploring. Next time, I would like to do more relaxing at the beach that is just a few steps away from this place. Hope to be back some day.

It was a Breeze!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at the Tropical Breeze. The info listed on the VRBO site was very accurate and the photos really did represent the property as it is. The beach is a very short walk across the street down a private path. The beach is one of the nicest on all of Oahu.

You are located in a quiet subdivision with good access to Kialua just a short drive. If you want to travel to Honolulu, it is a quick trip over the mountains, (traffic permitting) and you are in the heart of the city in no time.

We spent 2 weeks at the TB, and it was perfect for the 2 of us. The room is large with a nice queen bed, plenty of storage, a small kitchen area, and a large refrigerator. The bathroom is large with a big walk in shower. There is additional storage in the bathroom if you need more places to put things away. Seriously, the bathroom is as big as many of the cruise ship rooms that we have stayed in.

You also have outdoor facilities of table, chairs, a grill, and a private pool. It really makes you feel like you have a private residence on the islands when your rent the Tropical Breeze.

I was a bit concerned reserving a place online, 4000 miles away having never seen it. It is a great place. So leave your worries at home and enjoy your visit to the Tropical Breeze.

We will be sure to rent it again, the next time we are visiting Oahu.

Delightful Place

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Tropical Breeze was very pleasant and relaxing. The location is superb and we loved the private path to the beach. This studio comes with several extra touches that make it special: coffee and chocolates on hand at our arrival, great beach chairs and other beach essentials there for our use, the washer and dryer right outside the door, and a beautiful little private lanai. We booked this place somewhat at the last minute, and we were very pleased with the prompt responses to our requests for information.

The pictures of the property and the surroundings are quite accurate, and everything was clean and well-maintained. It was clear that this studio gets careful attention. We would be happy to recommend it to others, and we actually already have!

Excellent location!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is described perfectly. It really is a good deal. The bed was comfortable, the location was quiet yet close to the (private) beach entrance and to a small grocery market. And had nice extra amenities such as beach chairs, small cooler, wicker beach mats, lots of beach towels, and assorted bathroom sundries (lotion, etc). The condo was clean and well-maintained. Tons of shelves, drawers and closet space. We did not use the washer/dryer or the grill, so can't comment other than to say they do exist. It's a small little kitchenette which was perfect for our needs, but if you're someone that likes to cook dinner every night and want your counter space etc, this might not be for you. But it was fully functional, with toaster oven and hot plate and microwave. We had a great time here! So thanks Joanie!
