This is a spacious, lofted ceiling attachment to the main beach bungalow style house (which is occupied full-time by your AirBNB hosts). It includes it's own private entrance, bathroom, and queen size bed. Gets beautiful morning breezes sun from the windows that run the entire length of the windward facing wall. It's in a cozily packed residential neighborhood, but is on a flag lot (meaning set back off the road itself) for a bit less noise.
Kailua is a quaint little beach town (think Bethany Beach Delaware or Venice Beach, California). A great variety of restaurants, shops, grocery stores (including a Whole Foods) are all within a few minute walk or bike ride from the house.
A few minute drive away is one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, Lanikai beach, and of course the much larger, just as loved (and beautiful) Kailua beach. This is a great location, on a side of the island that is less traveled and hard to find nice accommodations.
A++ best hosts and an overall wonderful experience. Bright, airy, clean and cozy studio that met our needs and surpassed our expectations. They were happy to help, generous in what they offered and respected our privacy. We felt welcomed and they shared the aloha. Would recommend this studio to all of our like-minded friends and family in a heartbeat.
Simon was a great guy, easy going and helpful. The apartment was exactly as described and comfortable without a lots of frills. Exactly what I was looking for... Great stay.
Simon is a great host and his place is exactly how he describes it to be. He was very quick to answer any questions I had about the area and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Would go back.
Ok, Simon was an amazing host. I felt like it was home away from home and you cannot get any better than that. Very thorough and helpful. The place is perfect size, sunny and breezy, located close to anything you might need. Loved it! Thanks Simon, aloha, and see you again soon!
This was my first experience using a vacation rental service and Simon's place made me feel great about my decision to rent. It is in a great location, nice neighbors, and Simon and Voni are excellent hosts. Their recommendations and directions were always helpful and spot on. The room itself is big, bright, and airy and Simon provided beach towels, a boogie board, swim fins etc. for my use. I would absolutely consider staying in this rental again.
I booked my trip at the last minute, and I had never been to Oahu before. I was so lucky to get to have Simon's studio to stay at. I t was perfect for me. The location was great and Simon and his girlfriend were awesome hosts. They directed to me to places to go and where to eat, and made me feel completely at home. And the bed was really comfortable- I slept great. I hope I can stay there again when I go back to Oahu. Thank you Simon!
Simon was an amazing host. After missing a full day in Hawaii due to a long delay at the airport. We finally arrived at the studio to.find a bottle of wine and two glasses. This shows the generous nature of Simon. The studio was exactly what we wanted and some. We definitely had the honeymoon we wanted and we couldn`t have chosen a better place to stay. The location was perfect if you want to experience the natural beauty of the island. We would definitley stay here again and have already recommended simon to our friends and family.
Staying at Simons place was a really great experience. Kailua itself was awesome, and me and my girlfriend were really happy we chose to stay there instead of Waikiki. Nice small beach town. The studio itself was really nice. In a nice residential area where it was usually very quite apart from the occasional neighbor and some bird sounds. It was a little bit run down, but very tastefully decorated and clean. Has everything you need, especially if you aren't really planning on spending tons of time in the room. Simon and his girlfriend were really helpful and friendly, he lent us snorkeling equipment, told us all of the great places to go and was always accessible if we had any questions.
All in all it was a great experience and I am really happy we decided to stay here. The price is unbeatable compared to what you would spend for a hotel.
