The space

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).

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 - it's very easy in this quiet & secluded bungalow.

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.

The bungalow rental includes:

- Off-street parking
- Private entry

- Kitchen includes: Mid-size fridge, microwave, toaster oven, induction cook top (solo), blender, coffee maker, tea hot pot

Blu-Ray Speakers
Beach chairs, beach towels and cooler - an iron and ironing board - blow dryers, , etc... it's got it all.
Washer/dryer (shared)

The bungalow is located in a residential neighborhood. To be good neighbors, we ask that our guests have no more than 2 additional guests on the property.

Also, if you'd like the same feel but, would prefer a larger space (1000 sq. ft) with a full kitchen - check out the bungalow's big brother 'Enchanting Kailua Beach Retreat' (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) #491890


Additional parking is available at the beach park with easy access into the property through the beach gate. Keeping the parking easy to access and the property quiet and peaceful for both bungalows is designed to give our guests a tranquil & restful respite on their holiday.

I could not recommend this property enough. We stayed at the beach bungalow for two weeks and were blown away. The location is perfect, nestled right by the beach and not too far away from Kailua town. Kailua beach (a minute away) is absolute paradise. Cheri and Scott made our stay so perfect - from the fresh local produce and wine on arrival (to celebrate our honeymoon!) to the provision of beach gear and lovely toiletries. The garden is peaceful and stunning and the bungalow has everything you want for a holiday and is tastefully decorated and immaculate. If you are lucky enough to find this property free for your dates, book! You will not regret it!

Do yourself a huge favor and avoid all the overpriced generic hotel rooms - if you have the opportunity, step into paradise at Cheri's secluded bungalow. As everyone has said, the absolutely gorgeous beach is right in the backyard - you could not get any closer. The location itself is truly paradise, and Cheri went above and beyond to provide amenities we didn't think to bring ourselves. The location is peaceful and was the perfect getaway. The location is only a few minute drive into downtown Kailua and 15-20 minutes away from all the other major hot spots in Oahu. We highly recommend this location and our host, Cheri! You will fall in love all over again.

This property is an absolute dream just steps away from the beach. The bungalow is the perfect space for any couple looking for a paradise get away. Cheri and Scott provided everything needed (towels, beach chairs, extra clean bed sheets, all kitchen supplies one would need) to feel comfortable. The bungalow has its own AC unit so guests can stay cool at all times. The beach is absolutely gorgeous and never too crowded. Cheri and Scott were able to make excellent food and activity recommendations. My wife and I highly recommend the open water shark swimming on the North Shore (details will be in your welcome packet when you arrive). Upon arrival Cheri presented us with a welcoming basket containing Champagne (since my wife and I were on our Honeymoon), Kona Coffee, Pineapple, and Macadamia Nuts. We loved seeing their three cats Nzuri, Niali, and Zazou around the property. After seeing the continuous 5 star reviews we knew this place had to be special. It definitely was! We hope to return sometime soon for a second stay. Thank you Sheri and Scott! Mahalo!

Best location in Kailua! Just a few steps to one of the best beaches in Oahu, and next door to a great deli/grocery store. The garden is beautiful, full of trees, birds, and cats :) Cheri has been really nice and friendly, and we highly recommend her place.

We loved EVERYTHING! It was beautiful, private, clean, and close to everything. We had a beach right in our backyard along with fresh fruit, kind creatures, and gorgeous plant life. There isn't a better or more beautiful place to visit.

Cheri Michel User ProfileCheri Michel is a superhost.

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!

We have enjoyed welcoming guests into our bungalows here in Kailua - the property is very large (over 20,000 sq. ft.) and so, guests can feel very secluded - everyone has their own private parking space, entry and their own private gardens. If our papaya and bananas trees are fruiting - we share!
