Blue Ginger Cottage/Mele Hale - 'Happy Home' is situated in the wonderful town of Kailua on the windward side of Oahu. We are the owners living on the property, next to the attached cottage. We are available at your request to answer your questions and share what we know about the islands. Our goal is to provide you with a home-like atmosphere. Your comfort is our top priority. Our concierge is Nicky the cat. He greets all guests but is happy to stay away if not welcome.
This is the ideal home for a family with 2 – 3 children, or couples celebrating a special event. It is three blocks to the center of town, and two blocks to glorious Kailua Beach. The property is very private; like a park on almost one half an acre. Feed the birds in the morning. Laze in the hammock; sit on one of two lanais - one off the bedroom in the garden, the other overlooking the pool and Jacuzzi. The back yard has other spots for relaxation - the gazebo and lawn chairs clustered under the lush vegetation .
Access to the cottage is through 3 exterior entrances – the sitting area, the bedroom and the bathroom. The inside is bright and very comfortable with 18 foot ceilings, skylights and ceiling fans. Sleeping arrangements are the queen bed in the master bedroom, a double bed in the loft which overlooks the bedroom, and two twin beds in the sitting area.
Fresh flowers, fruit, juice, muffins, cereal and coffee are all part of the welcome package. The refrigerator and cupboards have condiments often needed for home cooking; spices, vinegar/oil, peanut butter, etc. The amenities include everything needed for cooking – full size refrigerator with ice maker, microwave, electric skillet, toaster, coffee maker, etc. The outdoor burner on the grill is often used.
Most Sundays, a few family and friends gather for what we call 'Bubbly Sunday' - potluck, some prosecco, and sometimes the Jacuzzi. Cottage guests are always welcome.
If you are looking for local adventure we recommend hikes, kayaking or, consider paragliding. Come! Join us in paradise.

Oahu has so many activities - particularly in the out of doors. Besides the obvious ocean fare, there are aerial activities. Dillingham airfield has parachuting and glider flying. our son is part of a paragliding group here. Given the right wind conditions they fly off the Mokapuu Lighthouse site, Kahana Bay, Nanakuli and even Diamond Head. check out their website:
