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.
Wow! Pictures do not do this place justice. The territorial view is breathtaking. So many people get fixated on the beaches that they forget that Oahu's mountains are some of the most picturesque in the US.
The unit itself was very nice: large bathroom, spacious living sleeping/living area, walk-in closet, galley kitchen, private deck. There were also beach chairs, beach towels, boogie boards and coolers for use during our stay. Dan, the owner is wonderful. He could not have been more helpful. He truly embodies the aloha spirit.
My daughter and I traversed the entire island over a two week period and Kailua was hands down our favorite place. On Dan's advice we went up to the north end of Kailua Bay and found white sand, turquoises water, and near empty beaches. Heaven! There are also a number of great hiking trails in the area.
If and when we return to Oahu, we would definitely stay with Dan in Kailua again.
We loved the beautiful mountain view! Lovely space with many special touches and very comfortable bed. In a residential neighborhood, above a private home, separate entrance. We jogged down the hill 10 min to Kuilah Beach Park for morning swim. Good choice for quiet time away...
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at your property. The location was perfect and we especially liked sitting on the lanai that overlooked the golf course and wonderful Koolau Mountains. The property had everything we needed and was very comfortable. Thank you for sharing your place with us.
My husband and I wanted to stay in Kailua right after our wedding as we wanted to get away from the hustle and bustle of Honolulu. This place was perfect for what we wanted! It's located in a neighborhood near Kailua beach and close to Lanikai. The suite itself was charming and felt like we were in our own tropical oasis. It overlooked the golf course and had sweeping views of the lush mountain range - a great way to wake up in the morning. It was nice to hear the leaves rustling on the trees at night, I found it pretty peaceful as we were heading to bed. We were a little concerned about the tiny AC unit, but the fans kept it breezy and the place cooled down significantly towards the evening. The owners, Dan and Diane, were very warm and welcoming - their dogs were also very friendly. We can't wait to go back to Oahu and will definitely be considering this property if we find ourselves in Kailua again!
We had an excellent stay at this lovely apartment in Kailua. It was in a very scenic and quiet location with beautiful views of the mountains from the apartment lanai. The apartment was a comfortable, spacious studio with everything we needed during the two weeks we were there. The hosts were attentive but not obtrusive and provided maps, restaurant information, and cultural information books and brochures in the apartment. We would love to return in the future! T and J
We loved this property! Dan and Diane were exceptional hosts and we wish we could have stayed longer! The mountain views are stunning and easy access to the beach made this such an amazing trip. We will be back!
