Our stay at Heather and Gerardo's studio was wonderful! The studio was clean, comfortable and close to the beach, just as described! Kailua is an awesome town with everything you need for stay within a close distance. It is also perfectly located to go anywhere else on the island in an hour drive! The beach was AMAZING! Our 2 favorite things to do during our stay were to wake up, make a cup of coffee and go watch the sunrise on Kailua and go swimming with the sea turtles on the next beach, Lanikai.
Heather and Gerardo are so pleasant and had great suggestions of places to eat and visit. There are a lot of helpful guide books in the apartment as well. We really appreciated using the towels, boogie boards and snorkel equipment that Heather and Gerardo had. We loved our stay and can't wait to recommend it to our friends and family! Hopefully we will make it back to this magical place and have the opportunity to stay here again!
Thank you Heather and Gerardo for making our first trip to Hawaii a memorable one! This was the best vacation we have ever been on!
Communication was very good. Listing was as described. Bed was very comfy. Very close to beach. Walk into town to restaurants, coffee, shopping. Quick drive to even more selections. Beautiful back yard. Room very open so if you are concerned about privacy you might want to rent the upstairs unit. It didn't bother us though. We were pleased with the rental.

This place was perfect for me and my girlfriend. Heather was responsive to my texts/emails and was ok with us checking in late as we were busy the entire first day. Close to the beach is an understatement...just a short 10-15 walk and we were there. The area we loved so much...plenty of shops and restaurants...a Whole Foods, local eats, even a Salvation Army that we had to buy luggage from to bring back all of our souvenirs. We loved the pace of the area as opposed to when we went to Waikiki which was just a bit too busy. Heather and Gerardo had beach towels, scuba gear, boogie boards and a cooler which we all used as we just went around hitting up all the beaches on the island. Heather was also super sweet letting us borrow a scale to use for our luggage. Her energy was infectious and she was a pure delight when we met. This was a perfect place for us to stay and we will definitely be back and use them again.
We had a fantastic time staying in Heathers place. It was so close to the beach and shops. Plus we were very close to many tourist attractions and honolulu. We would highly recommend others stay here!
Die Gastgeber waren sehr nett & man fühlte sich stets wohl. Die Lage ist super, ruhig & wirklich nah zum Strand. Ebenfalls sind viele Einkaufsmöglichkeiten & Restaurants in der Nähe vorhanden. Wir sind froh dort gebucht zu haben und würden jederzeit wieder zurückkehren.
Heather and Gerardo were great hosts: attentive if necessary, distant, and friendly.
We arrived early because it was my first time using Airbnb and I didn't realize we had a message conversation, in which they sent me a light itinerary in which the unit would be available, parking accommodations, and reasonable expectations.
SO WE ARRIVED EARLY and they quickly finished preparing our room and we were officially in Hawaii! They shared some interest points and showed us all the fun Hawaiian toys they have we could use, which we did use the unbroken snorkel gear.
We stayed five days and it was a pleasant room on the first floor with the fun slit glass windows that I've never experienced! GECKOS. Geckos. So cute.
We drove into Waikiki once, BUT I CAN TELL YOU THE KAILUA BEACH A QUICK WALK FROM THEIR PLACE WAS WAY BETTER. So you should stay here instead of tourist spots on the island because it really was a great experience.
You'll definitely need a vehicle to get around, but other good news is they live SUPER close to a Whole Foods!
I would recommend Heather and Gerardo for anyone who is looking to have close access to water and amenities and is happy to have a functioning bathroom and fan.

We recently moved from New York to Hawaii for better health and quality of life; and boy, did we find it! We love it here and since we are only 6 houses from the beach we go everyday for a swim in the beautiful clear waters of the Pacific. The high mineral content of the water is wonderful for what ails you! We especially like the weather, consistently warm without humidity and trade winds that keep the air sweet and clean. We're social people, (my husband is in the entertainment industry) and really like meeting all the different people that come to stay in our cute rental to enjoy the wonderful beach community of Kailua.
