Pleasant stay.

Nice little cottage by the beach. Owners are very nice and respectful of your privacy. It’s a very lush property with lots of trees and plants so there are some bugs but they never bothered us really. Location is perfect, beach is a 5-6 minute walk and maybe 10 mins to Whole Foods. Would definitely stay again.

Paul and Rachel have a beautiful home in Kailua. The Ginger Suite was very comfortable and cozy. They’ve thought of all the little things. It has everything you need. A nice little breakfast bar, beautiful beach close by and Kailua is full of great restaurants and shops, I highly recommend!

We so enjoyed staying at this comfortable property. Being that it is located in town where we used to live made it easy to visit familiar areas (especially the local beach) and explore places we hadn’t seen before. Accommodations very cozy and inviting and ammenities to assist in our stay were great. Sorry that we didn’t get to interact with the owners more so didn’t see them before our departure so will follow up with a note once back home. We would definitely consider staying with them again.

Me and my wife spent a week here. It was amazing! The location was perfect. We were so close to the beach and so close to all of the shops and restaurants in Kailua. The room was very clean, the amenities were wonderful, and the owners were very friendly!

We are fairly frequent visitors to the islands and prefer staying in rentals over hotels but have found it more difficult to find places. We were excited to find this rental and it was perfect for the two of us. The accommodations, and the access to the property owners was fantastic. We were provided a list with suggestions for restaurants, things to see and do and local information which was super… we checked out a lot during our stay. We appreciated the coffee bar and the first day breakfast provided - fresh fruit and scones. Having the microwave, small fridge and toaster oven was perfect for all our needs (keeping water cold as well as the few groceries we purchased from Costco to have available). The location provides easy access to the beach and to town. We walked everywhere! We enjoyed our morning coffee and snacks in the private garden area and were thankful for the bug spray because they were biting especially in the mornings and evenings. We will definitely keep this location in mind when we return to the islands. Great hospitality, location and accommodations.

This is a lovely property walking distance to the beach and to shops and restaurants in Kailua town. We spent a few days decompressing after a two-week trip around the islands with three grandkids and their parents. Absolutely loved the small, private courtyard, which was perfect for the two of us to enjoy breakfast and an afternoon cocktail. The hosts were awesome and made us feel so at home. We maybe chatted them up a bit much, but they were so friendly and interesting, we felt like old friends. We will definitely stay here again.

We had a fantastic stay at the Ginger Studio! The room is as described but even nicer in person with the other amenities. The property is well maintained with lots of landscaping and I loved the small fountain that blocked some of the background neighborhood noise. There is off-street parking and a really nice outdoor patio area surrounded by landscaping that makes it feel really isolated. Kailua beach is just a block and a half away, and there are boogie boards and beach mats for your use… We walked into town several times for meals and coffee. This was really a perfect stay for us in a perfect location. Paul and Rachel were very friendly and available without being intrusive - all of the information we needed was provided in advance, so there was no reason to contact them, but we enjoyed visiting with Paul when our paths intersected. We will definitely be back for another stay (as soon as possible!)

This is the second year in a row we stayed in the Ginger room. We love the location close to the beach and Kailua downtown. The lanai gives you a feeling of space. Exactly as advertised.

Loved my stay here! The hosts were so generous and helpful. I appreciated that the place was clean, well stocked with coffee and snacks, and located in a perfect location for beach and town activities. The garden courtyard was absolutely beautiful as well. Will definitely be staying here again during my next visit.

We were in Oahu for a Wedding. This is a great little spot. Had everything we needed and hosts were prompt. We needed an iron and they responded quickly and made sure we had a spray bottle and board as well. They were on it! Plenty of boogie boards, chairs and umbrellas. The bed was really comfortable and the beach was truly steps away. Great location. We’d stay there again.

The property is in a perfect location, especially without a car. Kailua Beach was five minutes away and Kailua town was thirteen minutes. Easily walkable! The studio is perfect for two people, with small fridge, a microwave, a toaster oven and a coffee maker. There is no laundry facilities but two laundromats are close by. The hosts were pleasant and a quick text away. The gardens and your own little patio is a bonus. We had a lovely time and will definitely return.

This place is spectacular - clean, quiet, and close to some of the best beaches. We enjoyed being able to walk into town as well. Would recommend on all fronts!

We loved our stay in the Ginger studio! It had everything we needed (extra towels + beach towels, an umbrella, chairs, boogie boards, and more). The location cannot be beat ... it's close to the beach, shops, restaurants, and the local park. What a lovely find in Kailua!

This is a rare gem on the Kailua side which happens to be my favorite area. Everything is beautiful as advertised. Having beach chairs and boogie boards was an added bonus touch. Thank you for making your home available.

We have stayed at many VRBOs. This was certainly among the top experiences. Everything was even better than advertised. The location was ideal, easy walk to the beach, restaurants, grocery stores, etc. The private, outdoor garden patio was a beautifully maintained space that made the studio apartment seem much larger. Paul and Rachel were excellent hosts with good communication and responsive to our questions/needs. We unquestionably would come back. Mahalo!

I’ve stayed at at least eight places in Kailua, and this was the best by far—easily walkable to the beach and town, beautiful and quiet property, friendly owner, comfortable bed, fresh fruit provided, toaster oven and microwave and refrigerator for light meal prep, shady private parking steps away, beach umbrella, chairs, mats and even boogie boards. My gosh, what more could you want??

Great rental. Had everything I wanted and needed, including separate unit, outdoor area, dedicated parking, close to beach and shops/eateries. Adorable outdoor space. Only thing I could say is that I could hear voices occasionally in the next door unit. Didn’t bother me as much as I only heard them during the day.

We were extremely happy with our accomidations. It is a short walk to everything and the host are wonderful. I am seriously looking at booking it every time we visit.

The property was as described on VRBO. The host couple were great! The location town center and the beach made it ideal for walking everywhere. Travel in and out of Kailua to the rest of the island was easy to do.

We had a wonderful stay at the Sheffield Bed & Breakfast. The studio is perfect size for a couple with a little patio and a tucked away secret garden that’s perfect for morning coffee or eating outside. We hungout there a lot - super peaceful and beautiful. The location could not be better - we walked to basically everything in town and it’s a 5 min walk to the beach and the beach Is gorgeous. This little studio comes w everything you need including beach chairs, towels, and an umbrella. Paul could not have been more welcoming and everything was seamless. He gave us a great reco for exploring the North Shore which we took and loved. Great stay, can’t say enough good things. Thank you!!

Rachel and Paul were the best hosts! Their property is in the most convenient area in Kailua and just a short walk away from the best beach on the island. The ginger studio is perfect for two people with a spacious room, bathroom, and private lanai and patio area. My friend and I loved picking up our food to go and enjoying our patio surrounded by lush tropical plants especially at night time while it was lit up! I just wish it was a king bed rather than Queen but that doesn’t stop me from wanting to return here every time I come to Oahu. Thanks Rachel and Paul!

Great stay with easy walk to the beach. Was a great home base for us. Loved having the chairs available to take to the beach for sunset.

Kailua is on the prettiest side of the island, and this property is just gorgeous. It’s a very short walk to a beautiful beach in one direction and a short walk to restaurants and shopping in the other direction. A few small things: if the bath towel rack is moved up about a foot, the bath towels won’t cover the toilet paper. :) Also, I bought an ice cube tray for the makeshift freezer but alas, it was too large. Ice would be very appreciated in the hot tropics. We absolutely LOVED staying in the Ginger Studio at the Sheffield House. Thank you, Paul and Rachel, for a wonderful experience!

My fiancé and I were thrilled to celebrate our engagement in Kailua and this property was the perfect place to do so. Rachel thought of everything and ensured our stay went off without a hitch.

We enjoyed our stay at Sheffield. Easy access to beautiful Kailua Beach and the town. The outdoor space was lovely both for morning coffee and evening wine. The bed was comfortable but the room is smaller than it appears in the photos. Room was clean but not Immaculate.

Lovely accommodation just blocks from town and beach. Knowledgeable and friendly host. Loved the outdoor courtyard for eating. We’ll stocked with beach chairs and boogie boards. Would definitely come back!

Walking distance to Kailua town and right down the street from the beach. Was nice and quiet/secluded with a perfect beach vibe.
