Aloha! We renovated this old-style Hawaiian home so that it will have the charm of old Hawaii with modern conveniences. The bungalow is on the ground level of a 2-story home. The 1/2 acre property is double gated (street side and beach side).
It is a great retreat for a maximum of 2 easy-going, nonsmoking (since we request no smoking anywhere on the property) adults (18 years and older only). We accept reservations that begin and end on any combination of the following days: Thurs-Sun.
This garden oasis (we've planted over 3,000 trees and plants) is in the most awesome location - situated right at the entry of Kailua Beach Park - walk out the back gate and you are 100 steps from Kailua Beach where you will find 2.5-miles of its famous soft white-sand and turquoise water - - often rated in the top 10 most beautiful beaches in the world. Beach walk, swim, kayak, wind-surf, kite board, body surf, snorkel, hike, walk/jog the Lanikai loop (4 miles around door-to-door) - there is an abundance of fun activities here...or, completely relax and chill out which is very easy in this quiet & secluded bungalow.
The Enchanting Bungalow is decorated with upscale furnishings, original art and collectables from around the world. You will have your own private entrance, private yard & garden - filled with fragrant flowers - gardenias, plumerias, white ginger, night-blooming jasmine, and more...there are over 300 varieties of plants on the property.

I am a leadership/mgmt consultant and I have been very lucky in that my work has allowed me to coach and lead workshops on 5 continents. My husband and I love to explore the world and, when we are at home, we love to renovate - bringing old homes back to life!
This is an amazing property - 1/2 acre right on Kailua Beach Park...the property overlooks Kailua Bay. Because of the size of the property, each bungalow has it's own private entry and gardens...and even though we are in the heart of the action - it is always calm and quiet here.
We rented this apartment for a week and it was very close to the beach (just steps away). The best thing about the rental was the amazing garden right outside the door. Beautiful blooming gardenias, bird of paradise, orchids and many other colorful, fragrant flowers. The rental is close enough to town that you can walk for dinner and right next to the Kalapawai market, so lunches at their deli are convenient. A very handy place to stay!
We absolutely loved this "enchanting " cottage in Kailua. It was a lovely place for us to come home to at the end of our days activities in Honolulu.
I want to start my review by mentioning the hosts to begin with. Cheri and Scott were very welcoming and accommodating. My wife and I couldn't have asked for better hosts and their hospitality shows throughout their home. Next I need to talk about the location. In real estate and in VRBO's, one thing that will always be completely unique is the location, location, location. The location backs up to the beach parking making it an ideal location. I could double down on all the good things everyone else wrote, or I could save you some time and tell you to book this place, like NOW, won't regret it.
Our hosts Cheri and Scott were delightful! Our paradise bungalow couldn't be a better location in beautiful Kailua. If you are looking for a central location (within walking distance of food, groceries, fabulous coffee and a world class beach) then look no further. In addition, the care and detail that have gone into the decorations and lush gardens are incredible. There is no question, you will enjoy your time here if you give it the opportunity. I hope to return soon and once again enjoy so thoroughly the beauty and surroundings. We so warmly want to thank you for your hospitality and letting us experience your piece of paradise. Mahalo!
Wow! What a find! This cottage is located as close to the beach as you can get in the town of Kailua. It is also next door to a small market with a deli and gelato ice cream. The beach is large and covered with fine sand. The cottage includes a reserved covered parking stall for the guest. This cottage reminded me of a bed and breakfast; a little old fashioned inside but large and spacious just the same. It has a bedroom with a queen bed, an a/c unit and a walk-in closet. The main room of the cottage has a couch area with a flat screen TV that includes cable with HBO, but we didn't watch TV. I did hook up my laptop to the TV with an HDMI cable and we watched some movies I had on my laptop. I really appreciated the separate desk to do some work on during my vacation since I'm self-employed. We also shut off the two a/c's in the house in the morning and evening, and opened the screened windows. The kitchen was small, but has a full-sized fridge and range. We cooked some of our meals there in the cottage, which saved us some of the time and hassles of eating out for every meal. The bathroom was large and it has a nice shower. A washer/dryer was also provided but we never got around to using it. Outside of the cottage is a screened-in lanai, which was large and wonderful; a great place to relax on cushioned chairs and enjoy the fresh Hawaii air. The cottage is basically the main floor of a residence; the owners reside on the second floor and were very quiet during our seven night stay. The grounds of the residence were amazing. It was like being in a botanical garden. They said they had planted over 3,000 plant varieties, and it was quite obvious. It also had a large rear lawn area with chairs, a fountain and a barbecue area with table and chairs. The backyard is enclosed with lava rock fences covered heavily in its interior with large trees and plants. There is a gate at the rear of the yard that leads directly to the beach and park located behind the residence; you can see the beach from the yard. The yard also has a shower for your use after a trip to the beach. They had beach chairs to use and a small cooler. But the best part about it was the hospitality of our hosts, Cheri and Scott. They were helpful when needed, they gave us fresh fruit from their garden and best of all, they let us overstay our visit for most of a day since our flight leaving Hawaii was late at night. I highly recommend this rental and Kailua!
We have stayed all over the world, and this is one of our favorite spots when it comes to location, accommodations and tranquility. Great beach with powdery sand, close to a market, restaurant and rentals for beach fun times, and a setting that is really quite remarkable. Scott and Cheri are warm and welcoming, just good people, and are as close or distant as you prefer.
I agonize over booking the perfect vacation, and this one was worth the effort. Trust us, this one is a true winner - and far, far better than Waikiki or most of the other options on Oahu. Book it and rest assured you made a great decision.
This beautiful little oasis in the most awesome location - situated right at the entry of Kailua Beach Park - walk out the back gate and you are on Kailua Beach where you will find the softest white sand on Oahu on our 3-mile beach - - often rated in the top 10 most beautiful beaches in the world. Beach walk, swim, kayak, wind-surf, kite board, body surf, snorkel, hike, jog the Lanikai loop (4 miles around door-to-door) - there is an abundance of fun activities here...or, completely relax and chill out - it's very easy in this quiet & secluded bungalow. Famous local hang out - Kalapawai Market, is outside the long driveway - wonderful for those morning lattes. Buzz's Restaurant is a short stroll down the beach and, Kailua Town Center is an easy 15-20 minute walk; packed with a delightful array of restaurants and cool shops.

Aloha! This property is a secluded garden paradise for two easy-going, non-smoking adults over 25. It is in the heart of all the Kailua Beach activities (right outside the beach gate) and yet, it is quiet and peaceful on our 1/2 acre property. It is in a neighborhood and so, everyone pays attention to calming down their voices, music, tv, etc. by 9pm work nights, 10PM weekends.
