We stayed at the Cottage for 4 nights in November. It was perfect for us. It has a small kitchen which we made breakfast every morning with free coffee. The breezes kept us cool all day and night that we never used the A/C. For lunches and dinners there is a nearby shopping center with restaurants. We liked the king size bed, the washing and drying machine next door and the staff and owner very friendly and helpful. This was a great stay.

“Convenient Kailua Cottage”
Reviewed 16 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

person found this review helpful

A good choice for the adventure minded traveler. Cottage is typical of island life in the tropics. Do not stay here if you are averse to geckos which are common and tend to poop on the counters/bathroom surfaces. Selected this independent cottage from among other options on this property (apartment/studio) for the greater amount of privacy although you can hear other neighbors/guests and their televisions. Property is as advertised, 5min walk from beach, and ideal for staying in Kailua, HI. Parking is on street/grass as with most other residences in this area. Water is hot and power is provided by solar collectors. Commercial washer ($2.00) and dryer ($1.25) on premises. Extremely easy check-in/check-out with keys available in unit upon arrival. Pillows were flat and couch creaky with aged cover. Refrigerator functional with rust spots. Microwave, hot-plate, toaster oven and sink make eating in an easy option.

“Great location and a cozy place to stay”

We stayed here during the second half of our trip and it is so much better than staying in Waikiki. The area feels much less busy than Honolulu and is very scenic. The room was small, but we had our own private bathroom and the exterior doors lets us come and go as we pleased. The only problem I had was that there was some misscommunication on what forms of payment were accepted, so I had to scramble to come up with some cash once I arrived.

“Snap this up while you can”
Reviewed 13 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

We wanted to avoid the big city feel and crowds of Honolulu so we looked in Kailua. It was perfect. We were minutes from the sites in Honolulu but on the most beautiful beach on the east side of Oahu. We easily jumped on the highway to the North Shore to see the big waves and surfers as well as great snorkeling at Turtle Bay.
The condo was super clean and comfortable with a huge walk in closet in the bedroom. The kitchen area was small, no stove but had a hot plate, electric fry pan, toaster and toaster oven. The condos shared a couple of charcoal grills.
It is near to shopping from Macys to Target with Safeway and Whole Foods. It's less than a mile to a terrific beach with a bike trail.
Nothing fancy here just a good deal in a perfect location.

This studio is very roomy and comfortable with everything needed for a great stay! We did a lot of site seeing on the island, and it was so refreshing to come back to our studio and relax. We also did a lot of our own cooking, and the kitchen had all we needed. The king size bed is very comfy for a good night's rest. Brenda and staff were so friendly and helpful. Kailua beach is beautiful...and so close. This place is far enough away from the busy parts of Honolulu and Waikiki, but close enough to go in and enjoy if you would like. I would definitely stay here again!
