About rick mcmahon

We are Hawaii residents for the past 47 years. Grew up in Europe, Asia and Manhattan Beach California and settled in Kailua for the love of the islands. We operate a Segway activity business minutes from our brand new home and can offer much Aloha about what to do, where to go and how to make the most of your stay.

rick mcmahon purchased this Cottage in 1985

Why rick mcmahon chose Enchanted Lake

Location, location, location and the brand new fully furnished apartment make this a great choice to enjoy all of what Kailua can offer.

What makes this Cottage unique

We have a very comfortable air conditioned accommodation with great amenities, and walking access to local farmer's markets, restaurants, shopping, beach activities, hiking. You will wake up to balmy breezes and birds chirping to remind you of sunrise outside your lanai and A/C to cool you off from a hot day at the beach or a comfortable nights sleep.

                                                          Great Hawaiian vacation spot

                                                          Leslie G.

                                                          The space is as advertised and is well equipped with everything you need plus extras. Paper goods and cleaning supplies were in great abundance! Not their fault but because of the continued damp weather, the space never was dry. Nancy and Rick were pleasant and helpful with nice suggestions on places to dine and shop. The beach and many attractions were within walking distance and often just a short drive away.

                                                          Warm, inviting and relaxing

                                                          Jennifer P.Parker, CO

                                                          This property is wonderful. The cottage has all the amenities of home and is just as comfortable. It's close to the beach and shopping if you want to get out. Or you can sit on the front porch and relax. Some family members stayed somewhere else and said when they come back to Kailua, they want to stay here.

                                                          All the way around perfect

                                                          Denny C.

                                                          Location was perfect. It is located in a quiet quaint area. Rick was very hospitable and knows the hiking trails very well. We will be back

                                                          Cute place with everything you need

                                                          Tessa D.Austin

                                                          Very nice owners. Clean and safe property. Walking distance to a gorgeous beach. They provided bikes and beach essentials. One thing A couple things I would like to see improved are the cruising bikes (air in the tires were very low), and the washing machine cleaned (smelled like mold). These things can be fixed easily. Great price, great place, and cute town!

                                                          Cottage was clean, modern, well decorated and comfortable. Very high-end!

                                                          Mark L.San Rafael

                                                          We had a great time staying at Rick and Nancy's place. We were close to the each and downtown Kailua. Rick was very helpful with suggestions of where to eat or places to visit, so we got the "insiders" view of Kailua and the surrounding area.

                                                          We would definitely stay here again, and we've recommended this property to all our friends.

                                                          Nancy and I truly appreciate the honest feedback and are thrilled you enjoyed it so much.


                                                          The cottage was perfect.

                                                          Debbie L.Maryville, TN

                                                          My son, daughter-in-law & I just spent 5 nights in this cute bungalow. There owners have gone to the trouble of adding some extra touches. Decorated nicely, newer kitchen appliances, very nice bathroom with great towels, hook up for music with speakers in ceiling. flat screen TV, access to washer/dryer & most of all a thick duvet type mattress cover to go on the pull out sofa that really makes a difference. There were beach towels, beach chairs, boogie boards, beach mats & a cooler. The owners were so nice and helpful with restaurant choices & even let us borrow some snorkel equipment since we one one short. Very convenient to beach and town. Not too much of a walk to the beach, but there is a public park there with parking if you choose to drive. Also, very interesting downspouts on cottage . I am a Realtor so that was a treat for me to see something very unusual in my part of the country. I would definitely stay her again and I love Kailua.

                                                          Owner's Response:

                                                          Aloha Debbie,

                                                          That was very thoughtful for you to comment so completely about many things that you enjoyed on your stay. We are truly grateful to you for choosing to stay with us and leaving such nice comments regarding your time here. We too hope to see you again in the near future.
