About the property

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

Executive, spacious vacation home. The perfect vacation spot for you and your family. Large 3 bedroom, 4 bath home located less than a one minute walk to the white powdery sands of Kailua Beach, which by the way, is great for small 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!

Dolphin Manor has ocean views, 3200 sq. ft. of living space, a gorgeous swimming pool, air conditioning, HDTV with HBO and 30 music/movie channels, 2 washers/dryers, free WIFI, free gated parking, a full modern kitchen with granite counters, gas BBQ grille, and more. There are 2 king beds, 2 double beds, a queen sofabed, and 2 twin futons, which can be put anywhere in the house. We can also provide a crib and/or pack n' play for a child.

'Aloha!! This is Asako....

I'm writing to thank you for letting us use your beautiful home this summer. Dolphin Manor was very clean and comfortable and felt very at home. We basically spent most of our time swimming in the beautiful Kailua beach. We saw a sea turtle a few times! We also loved the beautiful pool !! It was a dream house for all of us. We all wanted to live there! We are already talking about our second visit to Dolphin Manor!!

Thanks again for making our anniversary very memorable. We had such a great time and will never forget this vacation for rest of our lives...'

'Thank you for everything! We will cherish our memories from our stay at Dolphin Manor. It was exactly what we were wishing for and our wish came true. Sincerely, The Schatans from California'

'We really enjoyed our stay at your beautiful home. The location was perfect and you had everything we needed. The pool was awesome and the house so close to the beach! Can't wait to come back next year and stay with you. Thank you again for everything!! Brian and Cindy A.

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 36 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.

Why Zak Bryson chose East Oahu

We used to own 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 wonderful vacation destination.

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 beautifully maintained and spotless. Steve's gardens are breathtaking and the pool is fully tiled and quite large. You can walk to the beach in less than 2 minutes and watch the moon rise over the ocean. This is especially gorgeous during the full moon. You can also see the sun rise over the ocean each morning. We truly live in Paradise and wish to share the experience with our guests....

Guestbook comments from the owner

My family had a wonderful stay at Dolphin Manor. The house was clean, neat and the pool was fantastic. The location by the beach couldn't have been better and it was the best family vacation we've ever had. Definitely will be back!

Great location and accommodations!

  • 4 of 5

The Dolphin Manor is a charming home! We were so pleased to find it so clean and inviting. The pool is perfect for cooling off after a day at the beach or just having family fun with the kids. We loved the equipment in the garage, including beach chairs, strollers, swim noddles, swim masks, snorkels, boogie boards, bikes, and helmets. It's the perfect home for families with kids looking for the ultimate beach house experience! It's right across the street from the most beautiful beaches we've ever seen! It's close to downtown, which has all the stores and restaurants you could want, including a Target. On the downside, uninvited guests such as ants and cockroaches made us feel a little unnerved. We kept the kitchen clean, but just an empty coffee cup left in the sink or a crumb left on the counter attracted a stream of ants. Also we woke up to 2 inch cockroaches in our bedroom and downstairs family room on two occasions! We planned to have a family barbecue on our last night at the house, but we discovered that the the barbecue grill was too dirty to use, which was disappointing. Our stay would have been less stressful if a guide to use the TV remotes would have been provided. We had to figure it out by trial and error, which was frustrating. On the upside, a spacious house on one of the most beautiful locations on Oahu was a great experience!

Older decor but everything was clean, well thought out and functional.

  • 4 of 5

A great assortment of beach items in the garage. New bikes (with locks), new cooler, new Tommy Bahama beach chairs (5) and a new beach umbrella. Great location, 2 minutes walk to the beach. Pool was great, wide screen TVs throughout. Zeak was very responsive to anything we needed. We will stay here again.

Convenient, comfortable, and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Dolphin manor sits in the perfect location. My family and I stayed in this home for 5 days and never used our car. We were very pleased that the best beaches were right across the street and many shops and restaurants were accessible by foot. The house has many conveniences like strollers, bikes, boogie boards, snorkel equipment, and towels. The pool was situated in a very private manner that allowed my family to relax after a "hard" day at the beach.

We're definitely coming back. It was a great experience.
