Lovely Kailua Hideaway

  • 5 of 5

Close and walkable to beautiful Kailua beach and the lively shopping area, Michael's apartment was perfect for our week on Oahu. The kitchen was well-equipped for making simple meals, the patio was delightful for enjoying those meals, the bed was comfy, and the entire apartment was spotlessly clean. Our host was available and attentive, providing two bicycles, beach chairs, and an umbrella. Thank you, Michael, for sharing a part of your lovely home with us.

Amazing gem in Kailua! All you need for your beach getaway on Oahu with great hosts.

  • 5 of 5

Michael’s place is amazing! Not only is it a block from the gorgeous Kailua and Lanikai beaches, but it is fully equipped with everything you need for an awesome stay. It’s large (especially compared to other rentals in the area for the same price) and fully equipped with kitchen appliances (coffee maker, hot plate, large mini fridge w freezer) grill, private outdoor patio, outdoor shower, beach towels and chairs. Michael even lent us some beach cruiser bikes for the nearby bike path. There are kayak / paddle board rentals within walking distance and the center of town is also not far by car or foot. There is a market open until 9pm right across the street for any essentials as well. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and a big reason was because of these accommodations. Michael is also very responsive and helpful with anything that may come up. Also great travel recommendations within the rental. We hope to come back to Kailua again and will definitely hope to stay at Michaels place again!

Great property

  • 5 of 5

We had a very enjoyable stay here while we visited our son. It is comfortable and has everything for 2 people. The beach and downtown are both easy walks away and it is nice being in a residential area. Michael was a great host and gave us restaurant lists, several of which we went to. There was a gift basket of coffee, fruit, and chocolates upon arrival. Seeing that we were eating lunch and dinner out we didn't have to buy anything for breakfast with the gift basket. Highly recommend,.

Wonderfully beautiful and private get-away

  • 5 of 5

Highly recommend this lovely home away from home. 5 minute walk to the beach and the Kalapawai Store for anything you might need. And a short walk into the sweet little town of Kailua. Peaceful and relaxing with a lanai surrounded by tropical plants. The hosts are very nice and accommodating but allow for your privacy also. Couldn't have chosen a better place. We will definitely stay here again.

Quite the “work trip”

  • 5 of 5

I do travel a good bit for work. Going from hotel to hotel wears on you a bit even if the destination happens to be Hawaii.

Staying in Michael and Joy’s studio was like no other work trip. You don’t get daily room service, the noise from the adjacent room, or the overpriced restaurant or bar from down stairs. What you do get is a mini home away from home. The studio has everything in it to make you feel right at home. Nothing is missing. The welcome basket makes you feel right at home from the moment you walk in. It’s easy to get to. Parking is never a problem and you have no need to pay or tip the valet because the car is right out front. Then again, the car is almost not needed because you are really only 5 min walk from one of the best beaches in Hawaii. I just grabbed the provided beach chair and a beverage and in minutes I was fully relaxed on the beach.

Let’s face it, the travel to Hawaii is long. By the time you pull up to the studio your pretty tired. I was met by Joy. She showed me in and answered the questions that I had. I got settled in and put a few things in the refrigerator. In short order I was under the ceiling fans smelling the tropical beach scents. I looked forward to returning back to the studio after each day of work. It may have been a work trip but it was the most relaxing week of “work” I’ve ever had! If I do have any complaint it is the fact that my wife was unable to join me on this trip.

This place Rocked!

Car: recommended

The property is located near local activities, such as bicycling, kayaking, surfing, kite boarding, wind surfing, snorkeling, and hiking. It is in walking distance to the district recreational center in which tennis, basketball, and swimming can be enjoyed. A 10 minute walk will put you in the center of Kailua town in which shopping or sitting outdoors and having breakfast, lunch or dinner are only a few possibilities. You are in a 7-10 minute walking distance of the Farmer's Markets that are held on Thursday and Sunday.
