Why Marcie Nowack chose Enchanted Lake

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed five nights at Marcie's and loved every minute. The studio is close to the beach and grocery shopping but seems worlds away. The studio is exactly as pictured, and perfect for two people. The room decor, linens, kitchen utensils and equipment were all top notch. We especially enjoyed having coffee available to fix. Marcie gave some helpful suggestions for getting started on the stand up paddleboard, and we both gave it a try and loved it! We took a hike at nearby Maunawili Falls which we would not have done had Marcie not mentioned it. I would definitely stay here again!

Outstanding, peaceful stay on Enchanted Lake

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Enchanted Lake exceeded our expectations. Such a beautiful, peaceful setting with numerous outdoor spaces for quiet reflection. Everything we needed, including kayaks and beach equipment, was provided. Marcie is an outstanding host who was present for any questions, but also gave us the privacy we needed. Since I currently use a walker going to the beaches was challenging. This property fulfilled my need to be by the water on the days when I didn't want the hassle of getting to the beach. If we return to Oahu, this is where we will stay & I will highly recommend it to all my friends.

Fabulous stay in quiet studio

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I really enjoyed our vacation. It was so relaxing. Kailua is a nice little town away from a big city. I was glad that there are organic grocery stores. Marcie kept the studio clean and conformable. We loved eating breakfast in the back yard watching the lake and boats. She has several kayaks so I did kayaking for the first time in my life. We would like to go back.

Even more relaxing than I anticipated ;-)

  • 5 of 5

I had researched this studio and knew that it was located on the Enchanted Lakes, just a short drive away from the scenic coast beaches! I walked around to the studio door and looked in sliding glass/screen doors to a very welcoming studio apartment.

I checked out the backyard and fell in love with the Lake view. The hammock was SO relaxing. When the shade shifted, I moved to the table and chairs and then on to the dock for a variety of views ;-).

The A/C was appreciated, but usually there was a nice breeze and wonderfully fragrant Hawaiian air to enjoy!

It was SO great to escape the craziness of Waikiki to enjoy a quiet last couple days in paradise! There are so many beautiful spots less than an hour’s drive. I recommend The Shack for great drinks and food. We found an Island Snow shop very close to a very scenic beach. I have already recommended this studio to several people (before I left Hawaii). I would go back in a heartbeat!
