About Victoria and Brad


I am from England and have been in Hawaii for over 36 years. We have raised 3 children here and many foster children. I am a massage therapist and facilitator for domestic Violence classes. There is no place better to live, play and raise a family.

Victoria and Brad purchased this cottage in 2000

Why Victoria and Brad chose Kailua

The cottage really is 100 yards from the ocean and 4 blocks from the town center. The cottage is clean, quite, private and peaceful. It has a washer and dryer and a small gas bbq and a brand new A/C . Everyone loves to sit and watch the birds play in the water fountain while sitting on the peaceful covered lanai.

What makes this cottage unique

I fell in love with this home one day on my morning run many years ago. I stopped and said "one day I want to live right around here, its such a great area" and 6 months later my realtor showed it to me and I walked into the home and said " Yes, this is it" 17 years later ! I have ran bed and breakfasts in the mainland and here in Waimanalo and wanted to share Kailua with everyone. There is nothing better than just walking a 100 yards to the beautiful beach , its beautiful and calmness always greet and surprise me.

Great little Cottage

  • 5 of 5

I loved my 10 days in Kailua for my daughters wedding and although I didn't spend much time at the cottage because we were so busy trying to squeeze in all the exciting things to do on the island it was perfect! I am not a crowd kind of tourist so I really enjoyed being away from the crowded touristy areas but close enough to do anything you could imagine. It was very clean, quiet, private and had everything I needed with a BEAUTIFUL beach only steps away! Victoria and Brad were very accommodating and even had little extras like beach chairs, coolers etc for me to use. I can't wait to go back and would definitely stay at the cottage again.

Great place and great location!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week here and loved it. Victoria was very helpful and easy to communicate with. The location was out of the craziness of Honolulu, but easy to get to all the places we wanted to go. The beach near the cottage IS as lovely as the pictures show! The cottage was small, but suited our needs well.

5 minute walk to the most amazing beach!

  • 4 of 5

This private little cottage across the street from an open and spacious beach was just what we needed for our short 6 night stay in Oahu. Unit was exactly as described. Clean, private and peaceful. I did find it a bit warm for sleeping even with the small air conditioner but during the day it was well shades and when the breeze blew through it was so relaxing. Thank you again to the wonderful hosts for checking in on us but still giving us our privacy. AMAZING little place!

Secret beach cottage

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for location- this adorable beach cottage is it! We spent most of our time out and about exploring the beautiful island of Oahu and staying in Kailua was PERFECT! The cottage's location literally across the way from the beach made it the best spot to unwind after a full day of adventures. Victoria and Brad provided boogie boards, beach chairs and beach towels, and even snorkeling gear, which was really thoughtful and helpful! The cottage is tucked away behind the main house with it's own separate and private area. We just loved being in Kailua so much we plan to make it home one day. Victoria was responsive and available to answer any questions we had and was kind enough to provide a list of great local spots to check out. It is a perfect cottage for single or double occupancy. Thank you again, Victoria and Brad for opening your home and your beach to us!
