About the property

We are located across from the NICEST part of the BEST beach on the island

The Kukui House is a 2 bedroom 2 bathroom house. It is upstairs and overlooks the pool from a covered lanai. The house has a full kitchen, one queen bed, 2 twin beds, and a sofa-bed in the living room. There is AC in every room, free WIFI, free parking, washer/dryer w/laundry detergent, fabric softener & bleach provided, Large TV w/Movie channels, hair dryers, shampoo, conditioner and body wash, gas BBQ, bikes, boogie boards, coolers, beach chairs/mats/towels and much more...

This house is located on a private beach lane, on a private estate called Kailua Gardens. You would enter the house up the stairs next to the pool. Please note the second bathroom is located downstairs next to the laundry/pool area. There are two other rentals on the property, the Sunshine Suite and the Palm Villa, which shares the pool.

The best part is you just walk down a private beach lane and in less than 2 minutes you would be at Kailua Beach which is the most beautiful beach in the country! It is great for children. The water is calm since there is a coral reef 1/2 mile off shore, where the waves break. You can snorkel, swim, kayak, or just walk the beach for hours. You can also watch the sun rise in the morning over the ocean and the moon rise in the evening. It is truly breathtaking!

Take a look at the photos below, and let us know if you would like to spend your vacation with us. We would love to have you stay. Aloha!

About Zak Bryson

Steve and I lived in Colorado for 10 years and had our first child, Sharly. She was 3 months premature and weighed in at a whopping 1 pound!! When she turned one, she weighed almost 10 pounds. Her doctor said that she would grow if we moved her to a warmer climate.. that it was difficult for her to maintain a 98.6 degree body temperature without burning so many calories. So, we moved to Hawaii.. with $500 in the bank and our little daughter. That was in December, 1979. And here we are 35 years later. Sharly has since married, given birth to our grandaughters, Kaylee and Riley, and has moved back to Colorado. We had our son, Zak after moving to Hawaii. He married his high school sweetheart, Amber, and they have 2 sons. And, he just began working for us full time!

There's more to the story, so come and stay with us to hear the rest. We love our guests and have many repeat visitors to our lovely rentals.

Zak Bryson purchased this house in 1987

Why Zak Bryson chose Kailua

We bought our house before it became a vacation rental. We owned a small travel agency and people were always asking if there was anywhere to stay other than Waikiki. So we decided to rent out some rooms in our home to accommodate our clients and to make a little extra money. There were no hotels in our town and the beach was just gorgeous. Little did we know that Kailua would become such a B&B mecca.

What makes this house unique

You will love the hospitality and service we provide our guests. The beach is absolutely gorgeous and the property is like walking into Shangri La. Steve's gardens are breathtaking and the pool is beautiful.

Awesome place for a Hawaiian vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family had an amazing time in Hawaii - and staying at the Kukui House made it that much better. Walking distance to Kailua and Lanikai beaches, a bike ride to Kailua town, beautiful backyard with pool and bbq......we couldn't have stayed at a better place. Zak and his family are wonderful and very accommodating. We HIGHLY recommend this property to everyone and would definitely stay here again!

Great location, nice people

  • 4 of 5

The house was comfortable, the kitchen had everything we needed, and the location is wonderful--literally a hundred steps from a lovely beach and park, even fewer if you're tall. We talked to one of the owners a few times and he was delightful. Our only serious reservation was that it seems misleading to call this a two-bedroom, two-bath accommodation, as one of the bathrooms is outside, and downstairs. We were traveling with two older women, neither of whom was prepared to trot up and down the stairs in the middle of the night. The bedrooms are also modestly sized. If for some reason you plan to spend a lot of your time on Oahu indoors (but why?), this might not be the best choice. But if you want to get away from Honolulu, and have access to a good beach, just a few minutes from perfectly nice restaurants and all the necessary stores, this is a good option.

Just home from Hawaii!

  • 5 of 5

Great stay at Kailua! We loved the area, way more relaxing then the big city which is about a 30 minute drive away.

Zak and his family made us feel very welcome, answering all our questions promptly before we arrived and sending us directions to the location of the apartment, which was useful as we were arriving late in the evening. Zak was there the next morning cleaning the pool (which he does every morning) and we got to meet. He lives close by and is available to answer questions and assist you as needed.

Our apartment was great for 4 adults and our 21 month old grandson. We so appreciated having the use of a playpen for his bed. The apartment kitchen was well equipped so we could do some of our own cooking. Lots of beach equipment and toys for us to use. Bikes for riding into town on the bike path were also nice to have. Pool was great to have too, nice swim in the evenings before bed!

The other guests who came and went didn't bother us. Hardly noticed they were there as everyone is "doing their own thing".

Thanks Zak for everything, it was nice meeting your folks when they arrived home too. You helped make our holiday a memorable one!
