Our Sandroom is exactly one house back from the beach. The beauty is simply all around you. Take your cup of coffee or wine glass to the beach and go for a stroll.
We call our studio the sandroom. The sandroom will accommodate 2 people. It is 256 square feet. The bathroom is small and there is no sink in the bathroom. You have to use the kitchen sink. The bed is queen size.
We also have a one bedroom cottage across the pool deck that we have been greeting guests since 2003. The sandroom has lots of small appliances:
coffee maker or French press or Nespresso

if you cannot find it in the sandroom, please ask us for it.

Aloha. I am grateful for living in Kailua since 1966 and now with my son, Paulo, since 1989. We love to share our piece of paradise, steps to one of the most beautiful beaches on Oahu or Hawaii for that matter. Our home is an historic home (by Hawaii standards) built in 1937. We have been hosting in our cottage since 2002 and recently remodeled adding our “sandroom” in December 2012. Both the cottage and sandroom are attached to our home that we live in. Though our home is quite open we have created privacy on our side of the house as we have a large beachside yard separate from the pool area.
We take our hosting very seriously. We enjoy meeting and greeting guests from all over the world. We are available if you need us or just want to chat. We love to be invisible too and will respect your privacy and please respect our privacy.
I have one sweet silky terrier (6yo) who will wander into your place if you leave the door open. She is a hypo allergenic dog
I love to cook, read, watch movies, learn, go to the beach, travel, make a good cup of coffee, listen to music, entertain, appreciate art, walk, nature, listen to NPR, take in the hot tub, dip in the pool, drink wine and laugh (big doses). I love my family, friends and my dog.
Paulo loves all ocean sports, grilling, cooking, fiddling around with different musical instruments, learning, driving his truck, eating, traveling, nature, hiking, concerts, cultural events, and jiu jitsu. I just want to add that he has amazing dancing skills of which I am so jealous. I think he should do a stand-up comedy act. When not working, he is available to teach surfing and stand-up paddleboard.
Paulo speaks Spanish, Portuguese, little Italian and Pidgin. English spoken by Susan. I would love to speak French one day.
