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

From the time we made our reservation to our arrival and our stay, it couldn't have been more smooth and enjoyable. The cottage and property was beautiful and was a piece of paradise making our stay exactly what we were hoping. Standing in the driveway, you could see the beach entrance and the water just at the end of the street. After being out on the beach or out visiting family and Kailua, coming back to the cottage and jumping in the pool was heaven. Bob was so so nice and accommodating - true Aloha spirit. We were visiting Kailua for a family reunion and wedding so I actually had family staying at other properties in Kailua and told them all about this cottage for maybe their future visits to Kailua. I will definitely recommend being a guest of Bob's to my friends and family on the mainland.

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!

Great location, a little low on privacy

  • 4 of 5

This is a lovely little cottage in the owner's backyard. The yard is just a bit bigger than the pool. The neighborhood is high-end with a private entrance to a stunning beach on Kailua Bay. The cottage is small but has nicely painted concrete floors, a tiny kitchen with a full-sized refrigerator, inexpensive coffee maker, and microwave but no stove (hot plate), and a beautiful full bathroom. The two French doors and lots of overhead windows let in a nice breeze. The queen bed was comfortable. There was a gas grill available for cooking. The TV was so-so but you don't go to Kailua to watch TV. One big draw was the pool, but it is not the exclusive use of the renters. The owner told me his teen daughter and her friend might use it, but they didn't. I really enjoyed my stay. It was just awkward from a privacy perspective having to walk on the side of the house past the open windows where the family was having dinner or watching movies or having conversations. I didn't look and I doubt they were looking at me but they could see me come and go to the beach or dinner. From the back patio door, I could see a family member using what appeared to be a computer and felt strange sitting in their backyard. I stayed 8 days and got used to it after a couple of days, but it wasn't as private as I would have liked. It might not bother other people though. The owner was very respectful and did not come out into the backyard during my stay. All-in-all, it's a wonderful little place, especially for one person.

Owner's Response: Hi Erin, thanks for the thoughtful comments. We enjoyed having you stay with us. Having folks walk past the windows to get to the back yard is something we've gotten used to over the years, and we try to make sure our guests know that it's no imposition at all. In fact, we always try to say hi. Sorry if you were at all uncomfortable. -Best, Bob & Roni

Great property

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was everything 2 people could need. The pool is wonderful and always warm. The beach is a 1/2 a block away. This is a very clean and open beach area. During our experience over a holiday weekend; the beach was nowhere near crowded since, it is more of a neighborhood beach. We couldn't have enjoyed our time in Kailua more.

Best deal on the beach

  • 5 of 5

The guest house was perfect and private. And very well appointed. Bob thought of so many details - cooler, beach chairs, towels, boogie boards, extra linens, lots of clothes hangers. The walk to the beach was quick down the lane. Too close to the beach for such a low price. We will try to get this place again if we come back to HI
