This is a bedroom attached to the back of a family's house, not a detached studio. As such, one hears speech and coughing from the family. The ceiling fan pictured did not work, but the owner placed a portable fan in the rental to try to cool off the room. Drapes cover all the windows and it is difficult to push them aside for more ventilation.Hm, give up privacy for more air? Sure. The owner Tina was gracious and experienced, offering useful maps and a bicycle for my use. The room was spotlessly clean and the bed comfortable. There were 3 available drawers to unpack in, but no table or desk-height surface with a nearby outlet for my tablet. As a senior, I found the room poorly lit. But the price represented a good value.

Perfect location away from all the noise of waikiki on in our opinion the best part of Oahu. The local beaches are perfect and Tina is really helpful if you need any info :)
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.
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!
