About Scott Wehner
A simple plane ride landed me in the most beautiful paradise. The intense color of the ocean , mountains and tropical flowers and the constant warm trade winds are something I never take for granted and appreciate every day.
Why Scott Wehner chose Kailua
Kailua is home, we have the nicest people, plus it's the most beautiful and serene part of Oahu. The two and half mile white sand beach, warm kind waters, the quaint little town of Kailua with many great restaurants and great shopping add to the island splendor.. When it was finally time to buy the family home, we knew we wanted to be very close to the water and be at the quiet end of the beach. It's really a dream come true to live here and such a blessing to have a big tropical yard with pool and lots of gardening space. Growing up on a farm growing fruit and vegetables was our lifestyle. Gardening in Hawaii is so much fun as everything grows so fast. Papaya fruit can grow from seed to fruiting tree in less than one year. Most crops flower multiple times and fruit many times each year. It's like the Garden of Eden. I feel like I'm living dream... safe and taken care of. I have entrusted long time licensed property managers and Kailua residents , Chris and Beth Cronk, to take care of our guests and to make sure they experience the very best Hawaiian Holiday possible. They truly know how to extend the Aloha Spirit and Hawaiian Hospitality. You will like them, I’m sure. Aloha Welcome Home Scott
What makes this Studio unique
The Golden Garden is my favorite place to relax, meditate and feel the cooling breezes and listen soothing sound of the waterfall. The Koi in the fish pond are playful, fun and friendly. They really like people! I have taken great pride in maintaining the tropical look and feel of this garden villa. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

Okay for the price
There are not very many vacation rentals in Kailua for a budget of less than $3K per month for rent - so this place fit the bill.
Location near public access to Beach
The Bad and The Ugly
Dirty upon arrival (moldy toilet seat cover, moldy desk chair, futon smelled of mold)
No dresser for clothes
No room in closet for hanging clothes
Broken fan (was replaced)
Old and dirty iron and ironing board (replaced)
No tea kettle (purchased)
Stuffy and hot - the 7 foot tall fence around the house doesn't let the trade winds blow into the unit.
Not much outdoor space to hang out
Refrigerator outside on opposite side of patio
Noisy - Koi Pond/Niagra falls and having fans on all day and night
Too much unnecessary furniture (would have been nice to have a small table with chairs instead gross/old couch covered in quilts - also furniture didn't fit the studio).
I lived there for 3 months - I wouldn't stay there again if I had the choice.
If you are there for a weekend it may suit you if you are on a budget - but if you are not on a budget go elsewhere.
The only positive was the property manager's husband who helped on day one and beyond who fixed the toilet, offered to bring back the cleaners (which I said yes, but by the time they had time to come back to clean the apartment I had already done a thorough cleaning), purchased/replaced items.
It is very difficult to find a multi-month furnished rental on the islands - I only had a 2 weeks to find one (move was work related).
My cleaning fee was reimbursed - but my stay suffered from The Bad and The Ugly and I never felt comfortable in the place.
We appreciate your comment about the "good" (price was right) but the rest of it about the "Bad and Ugly" is quite unfair, don't you think?
We made many changes and additions to furniture and fixtures at your request. We purchased new linens and appliances at your request. We did our best to resolve every issue and concern you came up with. We even offered to refund all your $ and find you a place that would be more suitable for you. You declined.
I don't know what else we could have done to satisfy you. It is sad you chose to use the terms "bad and ugly" to describe this newly constructed, beautiful, tropical Hawaiian Garden Villa so close to the beach.
The Perfect Place
Clean, Comfortable and the perfect place to stay in Hawaii. I can't wait to come back and stay again.
The apartment was very nice. We enjoyed the koi pond, outdoor shower & the nice furnishings. This is an excellent place to stay & the beach is a very short walk away. Rental personnel were excellent.
For your kind comments. We are so glad you had a great Hawaiian Reunion and that you found our tropical Golden Garden Suite pleasant and comfortable.
We appreciate kind and considerate guests like you. Please tell your friends and come back when ...you are always welcome
Warm Regards and Aloha
The Golden Garden Team
Golden Garden Villa is located in a quiet residential area a short 5 minute walk to the beach. Oahu's Kailua, meaning "two seas" or "two currents," is named after either the two lagoons located on the island or the two currents that run through Kailua Bay. Steady trade winds make Kailua Beach a great windsurfing and kite-flying destination. Kailua Beach Park features pristine white sand and views of the offshore island known as Moko nui or "two islands."
