This place was a slice of heaven . Clean,comfortable,quiet and Karen and Ralph were incredible hosts
The studio was UBER comfortable.
I chose this rental because I knew I would b missing my puppy back in CA. Arthur, the grand dog, kept my heart happy. No, he doesn’t go in the rental so don’t b afraid of hair.
The owners gave me excellent directions and directed me to a couple of really good restaurants.
You can drive up the driveway and park real close.
Karen asked if I needed anything laundered. After that, I wanted to tuck her in my suitcase and take her home with me.
The vegetation on the studio’s lanai is so well maintained. And it is a beautiful view.
I can not think of a thing of a thing they should change.
Thank you for your great review of our home! We enjoyed every minute of your stay and your kindness to us and the grand dog Arthur! So happy you had a great time!

The location is perfect! Minutes from the best beach on the island. Safeway is just a couple blocks down the road, easy to grab snacks when kicking it at the guest house. A lot of good restaurants near by. Owners were super nice to us even though we never met them. They let us check in early and out late which was very convenient for us. Even though they weren't here during our stay, their neighbor still left a hand written welcoming card for us with her number in case we had any problems. We had zero! The balcony has a gorgeous view of the valley and ocean. When we come back, we'll definitely book this place again. Thanks!
Very nice and as described
Separate apartment next to a very nice house in an upscale neighborhood. Unit is a studio very comfortable with very workable. I was by myself. Could handle one other person. View is spectacular with a nice sitting/dinner table outside. Parking was no problem and right next to the unit. Owners were very nice and flexible. I was able to check in early and able to check out later. If traveling by mysel I would definitely stay there again
Thanks so much for your lovely review. Happy to host you and that you were able to have a relaxing stay to visit your family. You are welcome back any time!
Cozy home like hawaii retreat
We really enjoyed our stay. Karen and Ralph were very welcoming upon our arrival and throughout our stay. They were available if we needed them but not visible if we didn't. Arthur, their sweet lab, would welcome us back to the house most days, which we enjoyed because we were missing our own pets at home.The space was sufficient for two people and had everything that we needed for our 10 day stay. We didn't cook anything other than toast (there are many restaurants close by) but there was a small hot plate available if needed as well as a microwave, coffee pot, and hot water pot. We were there to visit extended family so we spent much of our time outside of the apartment but it has a lovely balcony with a great view as well as a pool that looked very inviting! If we ever make it back to Kailua, we would definitely stay here again.
Thanks so much for your kind words! We are very happy you found us and that your stay made it easy to visit your family! Do come again, you are very welcome!
Great Hosts and Location!
What a perfect spot! The cottage sits up in the hills of Kailua, so we were treated to gorgeous views of the mountains and ocean every day. The location makes it easy to get to areas like Honolulu and the North Shore quickly.
Ralph and Karen were amazing hosts! Upon arrival, they had stocked our refrigerator with orange juice and milk, plus left out some Kona coffee and a fresh pineapple. Ralph let us know about some great beaches, spots to stop and restaurants, as well as gave us a handy, local-area map.
The cottage was clean, well stocked and even had an air-conditioning unit (but we didn't really need it). We felt at home during our two-week stay.
We had a late flight on our last day, and Ralph and Karen, being the great hosts that they are, let us stay later than the usual checkout time.
We're so glad we found the cottage! Ralph and Karen are probably the best hosts we've ever had.
Thanks so much for a lovely review! Happy that you were comfortable and felt at home with us! Please come back another time! Karen & Ralph
Our property is on the hill top in Kailua in a very quiet residential neighborhood. Quiet time from 10pm!
