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 Kalama Tract

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.

Perfect location for this clean, homey little cottage.

  • 5 of 5

Very relaxing, lots of birds play in the charming fountain every day. The cottage is just across the street from the best beach on Oahu. If you want to walk the beach, swim, boggie board, and fresh food, then this is the place! Catching the bus into the big city is so easy and cheap. We walked or took the bus. Very nice

Overall great but some small details

  • 4 of 5

All you have read so far is accurate with a 2 details that changed it from 5 to 4 star for us. Bathroom and Kitchen amenities are accurate but should be known that kitchen is in the bathroom which we found a bit off. Plus the hosts noted in there brochure on site that you are in paradise so with that comes bugs that they spray for ,,, true but a few made there way into fridge so again we found a bit off plus all other accommodations in Hawaii from our 3 week trip were bug free??

The hosts were very good and accommodating. A new driveway was installed while we were there and they handled well to be sure it didn't effect our vacation.

Convenient, clean, and neat

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Kailua Cottage. The location was a very convenient base to many attractions without being in the craziness of Waikiki, plus there was off street parking! We felt that it was a good value, and would stay there again if we came back to Oahu. Victoria was welcoming and pleasant to deal with before and during our stay, providing recommendations for dining and other attractions. We were less than half a block from the Kailua Beach Park entrance, and that really added to our experience. There were beach towels, beach chairs, and mats available for use, which was great. Mahalo, Victoria and Brad--you helped us have a great vacation!!

Private, clean, convenient and safe

  • 5 of 5

I had a wonderful time at the Beach Cottage. As a solo traveler, safety and privacy were extremely important to meet, and this lovely place fit the bill. I so enjoyed sitting in my private garden watching the multitudes of birds drinking from and bathing in the fountain. The location was ideal, near the beach and close to town. The cottage was well appointed with everything I needed to provide a relaxing vacation.

Thank you Victoria and Brad!
