Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Teresa,

We enjoyed very much our stay at your studio! Your red book was very helpful. We loved Maui Tacos, Hibachi, Lanikai Juice. Thank you so much!

Best wishes from all of us,

Our family of four stayed in the studio for a full week from Nov 26 to Dec 3, 2016. We had a wonderful time and the studio had everything, I mean EVERYTHING, we needed!

We were greeted by Kona coffee, a local chocolate bar and a bowl of local fruit!

It was fully stocked for cooking meals, BBQ was great, and it had a great supply of beach towels, chairs and sand toys.

The studio was very clean and we felt at home.

We loved waking up the peaceful sounds of birds chirping then having our coffee on the gorgeous lanai. It was heavenly!

You honestly can't beat the location! A five minute easy walk to one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. The views were jaw-dropping.

We had a rental vehicle, so we did some day trips and the drive was never long from Lanikai! Diamond Head, Hanauma Bay, The North Shore, Dole Plantation, all within an hour!

We enjoyed doing the Lanikai Pill Box Hike which started just a few blocks from the studio and would highly recommend it. The views were absolutely worth the effort!

We loved driving into Kailua to walk around and check out the shops, go for dinner (Buzz's and Mexico Lindo were fabulous!) and get groceries (Foodland seemed to be the best deal).

Theresa responded quickly to anything we asked and everything went very smoothly! We didn't end up using the pool, but it looked lovely.

We would definitely love to come back and wouldn't hesitate to stay here again!

Everything you can imagine!

  • 5 of 5

The property had everything we needed. Though it's a studio, 4 adults were very comfortable for 7 days without feeling like we were on top of each other. The refrigerator was big enough to fit all our groceries, and the garden pool...can't adequately describe that gem. Sitting outside on the porch in the morning listening to the birds sing with all the tropical flora was simply magical. Loved the tranquility of the mornings. Thank you Theresa! We would definitely book with you again.

Beautiful studio near beautiful beach

  • 5 of 5

Teresa is a very nice host. She welcomed us with fresh fruits and coffee and explained us everything we had to know personally. The studio is nicely decorated and very well equipped. Even soap for the washing machine and insect repellent (not really necessary during our stay since there were few moscitos around) were provided.

Lanikai Beach is probably one of the most beautiful beaches on Oahu. And it is really close to the studio. If we should come back to Oahu we will definitely stay here again.

wonderful spot to stay in Lanikai

  • 5 of 5

This spot is homey, feels secluded and has everything you need for a comfortable stay in Lanikai. The owner is incredibly thoughtful and the space is comfortable and has everything needed for a stay near the beach. I was there with my two boys (9, 11). It would also be comfortable for a couple or a couple with a child.

The pool is a wonderful space to spend some downtime - and then the location in terms of a short walk to the beach, Kailua beach park, Kalapawai market and a short drive to Kailua town, etc. is really exceptional.

Beautiful, quiet, heavenly retreat in Lanikai!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect for what we needed: a quiet place to sleep, near the beautiful beaches of Lanikai and Kailua, with a great pool to chill out. Ideally equipped for our small family.

Thank you so much Teresa!

Felt like home!

  • 5 of 5

When we went to book our Hawaiian vacation we knew we wanted to be somewhere that was a lot slower paced than the Waikiki we had been to before. Kailua was the perfect setting and Teresa provided wonderful accommodation. We were within 4 blocks to the beach and it took about 7 minutes to walk there. We travelled with our 10 month old daughter and were very comfortable in the condo. We had everything we needed and teresa was so helpful when we had questions. We loved the pool area and found that it had enough privacy to allow for us to enjoy our time. We really felt like we were invited to stay with friends and would recommend this place to anyone.
