About this listing
Steps from the beach on a private lane in the best neighborhood in Kailua. Large peaceful studio with kitchenette. Close to restaurants and shops in Kailua town. Enjoy the sounds of the ocean and feel the tropical trade winds.
The price is set very low at $100 because due to zoning laws we must rent for a minimum of 30 days. There is also a Hawaii State GETax of 4.712% and a TATax of 9.25% that I will collect when you arrive (cash or check). The 2 taxes added together equal $14 per day. For a 30 night stay the tax comes to $420. The bed can be configured as a king size bed or two single beds. Let us know how you would like it before arrival.
The studio is spacious. We just renovated it in April of 2016 and it is very well appointed and feels new and very tropical. The beach is two houses away using our private beach access. At night you can hear the ocean. The kitchen is full of appliances and a small fridge with an additional small fridge in a cupboard just outside.

If you would like to use the pool and backyard at another time please text or call me and I’ll let your know if it will work.
We have beach chairs, a beach umbrella, beach towels, snorkeling equipment, boogie boards, and a cooler to make your stay fun and enjoyable.
We are very lucky to have an onsite massage therapist who is also an expert in skin care including facials, peels and wonderful skin products. A great way to get a head start on a very relaxing vacation.

Ours is a friendly private street where there are several beach vacation rentals. If you stroll down the beach for about a mile there is a very cute neighborhood store that sells groceries wine and beer, and coffee drinks - they have a deli with great dishes for a picnic. Kailua town is a 5 minute drive to great shops and restaurants.
There is a bus stop very close by. Enterprise has a car rental office in Kailua. You cannot take the bus from the airport to our home WITH a suitcase. A taxi from the airport will cost about 40-60 dollars.

I am an Internal Medicine physician involved in clinical research. My husband is a hospitalist and we have 2 grown children. We have lived in this neighborhood since 1997 and in Kailua and Lanikai since 1982. We have enjoyed traveling all over the world with our children when they were growing up and staying in small hosted B&Bs. Now we are very pleased to offer the Coral Room studio adjacent too our home by the sea and introduce guests to the charms of our small and tropical community in Kailua.
