“Clean, pleasant bedroom and bathroom”

This was like a new hotel room in a private home. We had a separate side entrance. We were within walking distance from the beach, restaurants, and shopping, in a nice residential neighborhood. It was a pleasant, quiet place to stay.

“CEO”
Reviewed 4 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

If you choose Hawaii, you have to choose Tina's studio. No wonder celebrities have their vacation at Kailua. The apartment is perfect and the lush garden makes both inside and outside a real holiday home. We stayed for 11 days and had a fantastic holiday. We have been kitesurfing all over the world, but never experienced a beach like Kailua beach. Tina's hospitality, friendliness and kindness are rare. We will be back.

“Very nice accomodation”

The place is in a very good location, you can walk to cafes and restaurants, or the beach. The studio apartment is very nice, with a good bed. We slept very well. But here is one thing that should be changed: the tripadvisor web entry for the place is very poor: the place has a name (not "5 minute walk..."), and an address (tripadvisor has only the name of the street, but there are many houses on this street) listed. The tripadvisor map location is of no help finding the place either, since it is marked at the wrong spot. With the information that was available from tripadvisor, we could not find the place. Since it took a while for the owner to respond to a phone call (she had a good reason and apologized, and I am not blaming her for any of this), it was a bit frustrating to get there.

“Really cute place. Very nice for a couple on a budget.”

This is a very cute and comfortable room and it was very reasonable for Ohau. My husband and I had stayed right on the ocean and paid a lot more on Kuai, but we were looking for a place that was not to far from Pearl Harbor and the North shore and NOT in Honolulu. This was a very good spot. There are lots of nice restaurants in the area, shops too. The family will rent you a kayak if you like. The property is about 3 or 4 blocks from the ocean. You could walk, but if might be difficult to do with beach gear. Tina was lovely to deal with.

Pros
Cute, room was very clean, bathroom shower needs a scrub around the middle
Bed comfortable and decor very attractive
Microwave, Fridge and coffee maker very helpful. There is a little table in the room and a little table outside the room.
Nice family
Price
Towels and other things might need were located in a closet made into a little kitchenette and storage area.
Kayak rental available
Washer and Dryer available at certain times of the day
Pool available only if family is not using it. Permission needed.
Tina gave us great advice about where to eat and what to visit and how to get there. There is a map hanging on the wall in the unit.

Cons
You are staying in a room connected to the house. We could hear them, so we figured they could hear us. We were a little worried about talking too loudly (may not be a good honeymoon room either...)
No view. Windows look out over fence. You can open window to family pool area and that is very pretty, but it also overlooks the family's house, so privacy is lost.
The area where the house is located is not terribly attractive. It is a residential area.
We felt a little confined, but it was fine for a few nights.

We were blown away for how great this place was given the pricetag.
A beautiful comfortable room in a really great part of Oahu. The host was lovely to deal with.
Short walking distance to the shops, two beautiful beaches, markets, gear hireage places, restaurants.
The room itself felt like a honeymoon suite, and had it's own entrance down the side of the house, where we often had a wine in the afternoon under the fruit trees. It had all the facilities and extras we could need, even bottles of insect repellant and after-sun in the cupboard!
Thanks so much fo having us.
