Overview

About the property

1 bedroom + sofa bed/futon, 1 bathroom, sleeps 2

Soaring above the palm trees this beautiful private suite invites you to relax being soothed by the gentle tradewinids. Enjoy paradise having a panoramic view of the expansive Ko'olau Mountain Range. Watch the sunrise over the country club near Lanikai beach, and see the sunset behind Mount Olomana, the 'Matterhorn of Hawaii'.

The studio is private and quiet, it has a separate entrance, is situated over the garage,with private parking. It does not share any walls with the main house. In the air conditioned studio is a queen size bed, futon, tile bathroom walk in shower, jacuzzi tub, galley kitchen,and walk in closet. There is a small private outdoor deck to relax and take in the views. We provide beach gear including snorkels , masks, fins, boogie boards, beach towels, and cooler.

Two of Hawaii's most famous beaches are just a 5 minute walk or 1 minute drive. Kailua beach is 2 miles long, and features Flat Island which is a bird sanctuary that you can visit. Lanikai beach is rated one of the 10 most beautiful beaches in the world, yet uncrowded and has a 'local feel.'

Swimming, kayaking, stand-up paddling, kite surfing, snorkeling, windsurfing, boogie boarding and surfing are popular activities at Kailua and Lanikai beaches.

A relatively easy hike is close by, with magnificent 360 degree views of the ocean and mountains.

We're just a five minute drive to Kailua where you can enjoy family and fine dining, and shopping Hawaiian relaxed style in the many contemporary shops.

Waikiki and Honolulu are 30 minutes away, for cultural events, museums, night life, endless restaurants and entertainment. Waikiki is a great place to learn to surf, and take ocean tours.

The North shore a beautiful one hour drive through mountains and pineapple farmland, is famous for world class surfing, botanical gardens, and ancient Hawaiian sites.

The Polynesian cultural center is just 45 minutes away for a day of experiencing a variety of island cultures from hula to fire dancing.

Whatever your interests, you can plan day trips and easily return to your private, quiet and romantic 'bird nest' hide-away.

Why The Owner chose Oahu

It is a quiet neighborhood, 5 minutes walk or bikeride to the 2 mile long Kailua beach, and close to Kailua town and schools, and not very crowded with tourists. It is within easy 30 minute driving distance to the airport, and just 1/2 hour to Waikiki and Honolulu.

What makes this studio unique

Very quiet, no thru traffic, nice neighborhood, close to best beaches, easy access to Honolulu.

The views of this property are amazing and the location is great.

  • 5 of 5

Stunning views overlooking the golf course with the pill box mountain in the background. This place was clean and comfortable. An easy walk to two beaches. The owners were friendly and helpful. The kitchen is small, but all that we really needed. Our flight arrived late in the night, but the check in was seamless. We would definitely stay here again.

Clean and comfortable studio with great golf course and mountain views.

  • 4 of 5

Great mountain views overlooking golf course. Clean and comfortable studio. Microwave, toaster, small refrigerator and adequate kitchen utensils. Good location close to beach. Owners are very friendly and accomodating. Wifi is spotty but att phone reception very good. 6:00 lawn mowing on golf course awakens you to a beautiful sunrise- unless cloudy then may be annoying. Good for single or couples. .

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much Dan and Diane for being so friendly and helpful and for making our stay so comfortable! We spent a week in this lovely studio and enjoyed every minute of our stay! The view of the mountain is breath taking and spectacular, the room is very clean and comfortable, having breakfast and dinner by the window with the view of the mountains are just romantic and wonderful! The kitchen is small but has everything needed, bath room is spacious and new. Great location, just a few minutes away from Kailua downtown and beaches. Cannot wait to go back again. Would highly recommend it!

What a gem!

  • 5 of 5

A perfect little hideaway with incredible mountain views! Dan and Diane, the owners, are delightful! Helpful and available when you need as they are right downstairs from you but not intrusive at all-just friendly and welcoming! The rental was well stocked ...towels, coolers and snorkel gear plus helpful direction for dining, beaches, hikes etc to fill your time.

We highly recommend this rental and look forward to coming back!

Mahalo Dan and Diane and Aloha!
