Sunbathe or swim in the cool water or just walk on the white sandy beach. On breezy days watch the windsurfers, or look for sea turtles between Flat Island and Kailua Beach Park.
Take advantage of waking up early from the time zone change and walk down to the beach to watch the sun rise out of the ocean over the Mokulua Islands. Or once a month check out the full moon rise out of the ocean. Bird watching is superior over the canal at Kailua Beach park or in Kawainui Marsh. See stilts, herons, or iwa birds.

Cozy garden setting, feels like home
Cozy garden setting, feels like home
I stayed only in the cottage, so this review is not for the garden suite. I arrived late evening and Rachel had left the lights on for me. I immediately felt like I was staying at a relative's home instead of a rental. The "secret garden" mentioned in the description feels like an outdoor living room for the unit, as it is just steps outside the door and for use only by the cottage guests. The unit is very private. I could hear the folks next door in the other unit (they are connected via a door) a tiny bit at times, but it was not bothersome or often. The fountains outside are wonderful to fall asleep to and although there is road noise at rush times (relatively speaking...Kailua is not a big town) it was not a problem for sleeping. Maile, the resident dog, is adorable and around, but only to say hi and move on. You are responsible for your own dishes and upkeep. There is no sink in the kitchenette, but a nice big bathroom sink. The beach is a very short walk. I've stayed at 6 properties in the Kailua area and this one is in my top two. Highly recommended for a romantic getaway or personal retreat.

Owner response: Hi Amy, Thank you for your your kind words. Hope to see you again. Rachel
As a former resident of Kailua I was delighted to find Sheffield House and was able to stay there for two island visits. The hosts are delightful and very respectful of guest privacy. The cottage is great and the lanai and garden are ideal for drinking morning coffee, reading, relaxing, napping, or watching the moon through the Shower Trees. Kailua has one of the best beaches in Hawaii, and is a very very short walk from Sheffield House. The proximity to Kailua Town is very convenient. Mahalo nui loa to Rachel and Paul for being such wonderful hosts.

About the owner: We have lived here for 27+ years and love to share our corner of paradise. Paul is an architect and Rachel is a landscape architect and planner. Our three children are young adults who are in and out but are primarily living on the mainland enjoying adventures in college and work.
Why the Owner Chose Kailua:
We love Kailua. We've hosted guests to our island for 25+ years in Kailua. The location between magnificent white sandy beach and tiny Kailua Town is perfect.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Sheffield House's location is extremely convenient to the beach, to Kailua town, or to Honolulu. We have been offering vacation rental hospitality for over 25 years. A truly unique benefit is the black cocker spaniel, named Mai'ile who loves to have her stomach rubbed. (Mai'le is a girl's name. A former Miss Hawaii was named Mai'le. It is also the name of a green vine which is used for leis for men in traditional Hawaiian weddings or the prom.) Another unique benefit is the absolutely gorgeous white shower tree in the Garden of the Garden Suite which blooms from June - September.
