About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2 max

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).

It is a 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. We can not accommodate Mon-Wed arrivals or departures.

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 which is very easy in this quiet & secluded bungalow.

The Enchanting Bungalow is decorated with upscale furnishings, original art and collectables from around the world. You will have your own private entrance, private yard & garden - filled with fragrant flowers - gardenias, plumerias, white ginger, night-blooming jasmine, and more...there are over 300 varieties of plants on the property.

About Cheri Michel Brazwell

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!

Why Cheri Michel Brazwell chose Kuulei Tract

This is an amazing property - 1/2 acre right on Kailua Beach Park...the property overlooks Kailua Bay. Because of the size of the property, each bungalow has it's own private entry and gardens...and even though we are in the heart of the action - it remains secluded, calm and quiet.

What makes this apartment unique

From an article in Coastal Living 2018:

Is this the most beautiful beach town in America? Quite possibly.

By Tracey Minkin

"There are beach towns, and then there’s a town so stop-in-your-flip-flops gorgeous, it’s tempting to name that place the ultimate beach town. Such is the temptation of Kailua, Oahu’s slender strand along its windward shore that’s home to two idyllic public beaches and 53,000 very lucky Hawaiians.

Surrounded by steep emerald slopes and carved quietly by rivers that flow into Kailua Bay, this understatedly hip community just 12 miles from Honolulu is endowed with extraordinary beauty, a serene lifestyle, small-scale neighborhoods of single-family homes, a walkable downtown with great food and shopping, and vistas without peer."

average rating of 4.981818 based on 55 reviews


  • 5 of 5

The bungalow has so many nice pieces of art, furniture, and figurines that it's like a miniature museum, and the yard has been transformed into a botanical garden! A world class beach is right across the street. Don't miss the kayak rentals about a mile up the road as you can paddle to the gorgeous nearby islands! Nice, clean, safe beach community outside of Honolulu yet close to so many attractions, hiking, and snorkeling. If you're second guessing this rental for any reason, no need to. Book it and you'll have a dream vacation!

Perfect Zen retreat! You'll be glad you chose this property!

  • 5 of 5

First off, the pictures are accurate but don't do the beauty and serenity of this property justice! The hosts Cheri and Scott are the kindest and most gracious hosts we've ever rented a property from, and they have put a lot of time and energy into making this bungalow very relaxing and thought of every detail possible to make your stay enjoyable. The beach behind the rock wall is perfect for strolling and playing/swimming in the water as the waves are gentle in this area, and when it's windy watching the kite surfers is a lot of fun! Kailua is a really great town with a nice vibe of old Hawaii mixed with modern convenience, but don't miss the market at the end of the driveway because while it looks like a hole in the wall, it's actually got great food prepared onsite that you can take to go and it's got the friendliest people running it. You will thank yourself for choosing this property and won't want to leave!! Mahalo to Cheri and Scott for being amazing humans and hosts!

Beautifully appointed inside and out.

  • 5 of 5

Excellent location if you enjoy peace and quiet as well as close proximity to the beach. Spacious bungalow with all the required essentials for a very comfortable stay. Cheri and Scott were excellent landlords who also live on the premises and ensure all your needs are attended to if so needed. The grounds were truly a tropical paradise.

Absolutely gorgeous, relaxing and enchanting!

  • 5 of 5

We would highly recommend this property to anyone looking to experience the natural beauty of Oahu. Kailua is a perfect blend of local and tourist, and the owners do everything possible to help you enjoy your Kailua experience. From local food and activity recommendations to the rental itself that is set up with absolutely everything you could possibly need- this is definitely a home away from home. We are already counting the days until we will be back. Mahalo Cheri and Scott!

Beautiful !!!!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment you arrive, the beauty driving up the driveway, with the flowers and greenery, is magical. Cheri and Scott greet you with a tour of the property. You can tell they really enjoy sharing their beautiful property. The bungalow is well equipped. The beach is so close!! Great location with restaurants and shopping just a short walk. There is some unique wildlife on the property, from butterflies being born, macaws flying overhead, and geckos scurrying about. It was like it's own relaxing world!! We can't wait to return!!

Thank you again for making our vacation so very special!!

Beautiful, relaxing retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! Amazing location… Just steps away from the most beautiful beach and not far from the town center. Our gracious hosts met us upon arrival and gave us a wonderful tour of the property and were always available during our entire stay. I would highly recommend this rental! Thank you Scott and Cheri!

Aloha! This property is a secluded garden paradise for two easy-going, non-smoking adults over 25. It is in the heart of all the Kailua Beach activities (right outside the beach gate) and yet, it is quiet and peaceful on our 1/2 acre property. It is in a neighborhood and so, everyone pays attention to calming down their voices, music, tv, etc. by 9pm work nights, 10PM weekends.
