About the property

Studio By The Pool With Full Bath & Kitchenette. Sleeps 2. Powered by the sun!

This quiet 400-square foot cottage sits by the blue-tiled pool and offers the perfect resting spot after a full day of activities or a sleepy day on the beach. It offers a full bath and kitchenette with full-sized refrigerator, microwave, and toaster oven.

The studio is detached from the owner-occupied main house and has a private side entrance and dedicated parking space. Come and go as you please. Guests have full use of the pool, pool deck, and private lanai for outdoor dining. Wireless internet and cable TV/BluRay provided.

Less than two minutes walking to the end of the street will bring you to world famous Kailua Beach, which is reached via a private gate. And a few minutes driving brings you to downtown Kailua, where you can enjoy dining, shopping, and the unique feel of one of the last true beach towns.

All of our electricity and hot water comes from the sun!

About Bob

We came to Hawaii in 1998 with the military and decided to stay. We love to travel and are happy to open our Kailua studio to fellow travelers from around the world.

Bob purchased this cottage in 2003

Why Bob chose Kailua

When this property came on the market in 2003, we immediately saw its potential and had to move fast. The cottage was completed in 2007 as the final step in our multi-phase renovation.

What makes this cottage unique

Relax with zero environmental impact. Our property gets 100% of its electricity and hot water from the sun!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We thank you for a wonderful visit. Your little cottage is truly “Tranquility Base”. Thank your daughter for greeting us upon our arrival.

We appreciate your “distance “ yet your availability when we had questions or glitches.

We were excited when we were introduced to your youngest daughter as she was preparing for her prom night. It brought back memories of our experiences.

Thank you for the visit and good luck to you and your family. We are sorry that we didn’t have a chance to meet your wife.

could not have been better

  • 5 of 5

Super clean, close to beach, just as in pictures. Owner very accommodating as TV went out and he rushed out to buy a new one. We have stayed in many VRBO properties and this by far was the most convenient to everything. Suggestions for eating and sight seeing were spot on. Thanks Bob and family for a great time.

The cabana accommodation is spacious, and exceeded our expectations. The pool was a welcome retreat and well-maintained. The kitchen was excellent for preparing light meals, and our host, Bob was kind and responsive. There were Beach toys to use, outdoor shower for sand removal, and the beach was literally 300 ft from the house. Parking was available onsite. We loved this place and would definitely return.

everything you need

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful stay! The convenience of Kailua Beach is great ... a couple min walk dowb the street to that amazing beach. We had morning coffee on the beach then back for breakfast and then long walks along the 2.5 mile empty beach made for a relaxing time. Bob and Roni have everything you need. Really enjoyed have some beach chairs and umbrella right on the way out to the beach.

Thanks for a great getaway.

A cozy and relaxing retreat

  • 5 of 5

Tranquility Base is exactly that - a tranquil home base for a vacation on the windward side. The cottage is equipped with everything needed for a comfortable stay. The neighbourhood is quiet and proximity to the beach is great. Bob and Roni are great hosts, there if you need them but otherwise leave you be. It truly felt like a home away from home and we look forward to visiting again soon.

Great cottage and hosts

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this property. It is perfect cottage for a couple, nicely furnished with areas to sit both inside and outside. We felt that it offered a lot of privacy which is not alway the case when you stay in a place with a main house. You can't beat the proximity to the beach for long walks and beautiful Kailua beach. Rob was super welcoming and made himself available if we needed anything which we did not since everything was in great working order and they provide detailed information on the cottage and things to do on the island. Wholeheartedly recommend!
