We stayed in the Ginger Room (there are two separate rental accommodations at Sheffield House) back in 2005 and returned again Christmas 2012. The Sheffields have just remodeled this studio rental and it's even nicer than before. As other reviewers note, it's not a traditional bed & breakfast. They leave juice, coffee makings, fruit, cereal and pastries, enough for your first day or two, then you are on your own for meals after that. The owners are available, if you want to make inquiries about the area, but they don't intrude otherwise. They also provide plenty of local info in the room. Great place for self-service, independent travelers (which we are). The bed is very comfortable, there's a porch and a small garden patio with umbrella table to relax in. We love the large walk-in shower (room for two!). It's a short walk to a fantastic beach - which we visited daily for sunrises, swims, and long romantic walks. Only downside is a bit of traffic along the main road - but the room is set back behind a wall and much foliage, and this muffles the sounds. A slightly longer walk to Kailua's business area, with access to a Whole Foods, many good restaurants, shopping, library, park, and so on. This is not a place for those looking for a resort-type experience and it's far from Waikiki, but heavenly for those who like a more authentic, low-key local Hawaiian experience. Good access to the rest of the Windward Coast and North Shore. We love it and will be back again.
