Overview

About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2 max

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 (25 years and older only). We accept reservations that begin and end on any combination of the following days: Thurs-Sun. We can not accommodate Mon-Wed arrivals or departures.

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.

About Cheri Michel Brazwell

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!

Why Cheri Michel Brazwell chose Kailua

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.

Paradise Found

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Cheri and Scott's bungalow was wonderful.

Our hosts were the best. They were very friendly, informative, helpful and not at all obtrusive. All their recommendations for restaurants and sightseeing were spot on. The property is perfectly located. It is steps from a beautiful beach and the owners have provided all beach equipment. The accommodations were very comfortable with everything you would need. We totally enjoyed our stay and would return over and over again.

Lovely, private and close to the beach

  • 5 of 5

Enchanting, indeed. Hosts/ owners Cheri and Scott have created a beautiful, lush and serene oasis in the beach town of Kailua. The location could not be better - steps from Kailua Beach Park yet totally secluded, private and quiet due to their thoughtfully landscaped gardens. The cottage is well-equipped with a full kitchen, appliances, outdoor gas grill and beach chairs, mats and towels. Plus you get to enjoy the meditative koi pond. On site parking is a real plus. Cheri and Scott are helpful and informative without being obtrusive. You will feel right at home and wish you could stay longer!

Perfect Vacation Bungalow

  • 5 of 5

Charming bungalow. The location was ideal. Very close to the beach and market. The hosts were very hospitable and accommodating. They were available and helpful with the right balance of giving us our privacy. We would definitely come back and recommend this place to family and friends.

Amazing place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful time staying at Cheri and Scott's Bungalow! It was a very comfortable stay with great amenities. It has a nice, private stay with wonderful island decor. We took advantage of the full kitchen and grill outside. It is as close as you can get to the beach and close to Kalapawai market (with amazing coffee)! We would recommend this to anyone and hope to stay here again.

A hidden treasure and highlight of our vacation

  • 5 of 5

This location is perfect! It is away from the touristy side of the island and is perfect for sightseeing all over the island. We would definitely recommend the bungalow to others.

Private, beautiful, spacious

  • 5 of 5

Staying in Kailua was the perfect balance of quiet and adventure for us. We went on a few day trips, explored town, and spent plenty of time on the beach just out the back gate. Inside the rental (if you're ever there) is spacious, well-equipped, and nicely decorated. Cheri defines hospitality, and was available whenever we needed her.

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.
