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.

The Owner purchased this studio in 2003
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.
Very quiet, no thru traffic, nice neighborhood, close to best beaches, easy access to Honolulu.
From the moment we arrived it felt like home. Kind and friendly owners. They went beyond expectations and provided assistance for all our needs. Accommodations clean, comfortable with a great view.
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!

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!

Great place, comfy and cozy. It had everything my fiancé and I needed. Daniel and his wife are nice people but we didn't see them much because it was very private get away. 3 minute drive to the beach. Small but perfect kitchen with a stove and microwave and pots and pans and kitchen utensils. No oven but we didn't need one. We grilled out side on the gas BBQ. The bathroom is huge with a nice jet tub. You can't beat the view of the mountains and golf course. Perfect get away for a couple. Thank you to the Browns!
My family could not have enjoyed our stay more! The studio is very comfortable with an absolutely sunning view and a well stocked small kitchen. We appreciated the many beach supplies and Dan's great suggestion about a local farmers market. He and Dianne are perfect hosts, welcoming, helpful, unintrusive, and wonderful to talk to. We look forward to staying here again one day.
This is a great retreat from hectic Waikiki but still on the same island! 5 minute drive to Kailua Beach or Lanikai Beach or drive to the North Shore. Kailua town is charming.
Host is very helpful and has provided info on suggested activities, restaurants etc.
Tastefully decorated room with a great bed! Tiny kitchen but adequate especially for warming take-out from nearby grocery stores and eating on the deck enjoying the view.
We plan to return next year.
