Description

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

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

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.

My fiancé and I had the best vacation staying at Cheri and Michel's place! Kailua Beach Park is literally your backyard and perfect for days when you get want to hang around and just go to the beach. Cheri and Michel have a beautiful home full of lush and gorgeous plant life. It was so relaxing and wonderful. They were the friendliest hosts and so helpful, they made us the most delicious banana bread that we are still talking about! Very wonderful and kind people, we hope to be able to stay at their home again in the future!

We loved staying here with the beautiful garden and so close to the beach. It really is steps to the beach! It was great to have the beach chairs which were so easy to put on like a back pack and go down to the beach. Cheri and her husband are so friendly and accommodating whike giving their guests just the right amount of space to enjoy their vacation. Their beautiful place is in such a great location. We could walk to Kailua beach, Buzz's, Lanikai beach, the paddle board and kayak rental place and Island Snow among other great places. It was a wonderful trip!

The bungalow was absolutely perfect for comfort, amenities, location to beach/shops. Perfect amount of seclusion yet still easy access to everything you need. The lush grounds were so beautiful & serene with a private patio area and walkway to beach. Communication with Cheri & Scott was a breeze and they even gave us a bottle of champagne for my boyfriends birthday! Great hosts & property- we can't wait to come back!

We loved every minute of our stay with Cheri and Scott! They have impeccable taste - from the location of their home, decor, and gardening talent, to their restaurant suggestions and lovely amenities throughout the home. This was hands down one of our favorite trips!

We loved the walk through the garden to Kaulia beach, which is stunningly beautiful and in very close proximity. We enjoyed staying in Kailua area as well, which has great shops and restaurants. Cheri is a thoughtful host and provided lovely amenities - from locally made soap and good snacks, to beach chairs and umbrellas - which we did unfortunately have to use. Also a surprise gift when we mentioned we were celebrating our 10 year anniversary - very thoughtful and appreciated! We highly recommend staying here.

Walk to Kailua Beach or to the famed market next door, this is a lovely and tranquil spot with nearby restaurants that are my personal favorites with lots of Asian food or American cuisine nearby. The sound of the surf all night is so restful. The hosts are terrific - there when you need them and out of sight when privacy is wanted. we popped over to Honolulu easily, or drove to Waimanalo, or Haleiwa easily enough. The best of Hawaii there and nearby. Ho'omaluhia Gardens in Kaneohe and Valley of the Temples are not to be missed.

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!
