If you want to stay away from Waikiki, try here. Easy walking distance to lovely beaches and everything you need. Make coffee there or take a short stroll to the Kalapawai market. Plenty of restaurants around too. Comfortable bed and clean. Also wifi.

“Warm hospitality in Kailua”

My husband and I just came back from our trip to Hawaii. Since we did the island hopping during our stay, we were able to experience several accomodations. Out of all the places, we must say that Tina's place was the nicest with safe and family atmosphere. The place was always clean. Even though we were were late due to the flight cancellations, Tina was very accepting and had the room ready for us when we arrived two days later.

The place is ony a few minutes (less than literally 5min) walk to the most beautiful beach and the town, Kailua is very beautiful with a very relaxing touch. When we drove to Honolulu and Wakiki the next day, we were very glad to we stayed in Kailua.

We enjoyed the little snacks, the Hawaiian coffee, and guava juice, which were there to greet us when we arrived. Thank you for such a nice place and we will definitely come back!

The beach is excellent, and the Kalapawai Market was a gem.
Great coffee in the morning, and the staff had wonderful recommendations for local restaurants. The Island Grill is not much to look at, but Oh My, what great food, and extremely reasonable prices. Try everything is our advice. The Grove and Baci are excellent as well for a nicer 'real' restaurant feel, with commensurate prices, but just wonderful dining experience.
Tina, our host, was most helpful and gracious at all times.

Liked best: The location. Very close to a great beach and market, and a Whole Foos in the other direction
Liked least: Not having a 'kitchen sink'. We didn't do any cooking per se, but cleaning up after snacks/sashimi was a bit tricky

We had a great week in Tina's studio. It served as a very quiet, relaxing home base for our first trip to Oahu and exploration of the island. Tina's extra touches like fresh bread, bananas and fruit drinks in the refrigerator in the room when we arrived late at night were really appreciated and we were made to feel very welcome.

“Fantastic value and in a great location”
Reviewed 10 August 2012 for a stay in July 2012

We stayed here for 3 nights to start our honeymoon.

The studio is literally a 5 minutes from Kailua Beach (which is so much superior to Waikiki, it's not even funny) and offers everything you need for a good stay. The bed is comfortable, the TV is large and works, and the private garden is great for grabbing some pizza and chilling at home.

The fan is all you need to stay cool, the shower works, but it has low water pressure. There's a collection of sunscreen, after sun balm, shampoos and shower gels in the closet, presumably from what some of the previous guests left behind, which is actually really awesome! It's also really helpful that you can use the laundry and dryer facilities, which are right next to the room.

The studio is in a residential area and the owner's pool is right behind the studio, so expect to hear some children in the afternoons. Certainly didn't bother us though! We'll be back when we're back on Oahu!
