About the property

A Garden Oasis, Decorated W/ Furnishings & Original Art From Around The World.

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 (18 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

- Private outdoor garden with a barbecue

- Wireless Internet

- Air Conditioning

- Flat screen TV w/ HD cable including free HBO & Showtime

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

- A new garden room with a 6' by 4' window overlooking your private garden...

The plates, silverware, wine glasses, bedding, towels, etc. are all top quality. Queen sized bed.

Also includes:

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' VRBO #491890

Garden of Eden without the apple tree!

  • 5 of 5

This is a secluded, delightful space to relax in. Surrounded by a beautiful garden which attracts birds and butterflies, you can spend the day here just enjoying the peace and quiet. All the details to make your stay stress free have been provided. You can cook full meals in the well appointed kitchen and the spaces inside the bungalow are comfortable (great bed!) and artistically well coordinated. Scott and Cheri were so accommodating and always available to help with any questions we had about the area. As other reviewers have said, the best beach in Oahu is right out your back gate and coffee is next door at the market, however you never hear any noise from either place! Loved it so much, we have already booked two weeks for next year. Thank you again Scott and Cheri for being wonderful people and sharing your little bit of heaven with us. Smoke and Mary

Elegant Surroundings

  • 5 of 5

This is an elegant place close to Kailua State Park. The setting--really like a jungle in some places--is beautiful. The Brazwell's have an incredible sense of taste and detail. There is nothing in the two units--we have stayed in both--that has not been thoroughly thought out. We will be coming back! They have a perfect place for small weddings and they do this as well.

Absolutely fabulous

  • 5 of 5

Dear Cheri and Scott,

Many, many mahalos for a splendid stay at your Secluded Beach Bungalow. We've stayed at several other places in Kailua and this is by far the best, with beauty both indoors and out. What a fabulous location just steps from the silky sands of Kailua Beach, the best key lime pie on the island at Buzz's, and just minutes to town. You've created such an idyllic oasis where romance and relaxation replace worldy worries. We really enjoyed meeting you, and look forward to seeing you again on our next visit. All the very best for the New Year 2018!!!

Carolyn and Rick, Summit NJ

Hands-down best place to stay in Kailua

  • 5 of 5

Our stay here was beyond fantastic! We came to Kailua to elope on our favorite beach. Upon arrival, Cheri gave us a tour of the beautiful property and our bungalow. Once we settled in we took a quick walk to Kailua Beach which is literally less than 50 yards from their backyard! Nearby restaurants, Whole Foods, the Kalapawai Market next door and Target gave us everything we needed. However, The Bungalow had shampoos, towels, soaps, microwave, fridge, beach toys, TV, and a really really comfortable bed! So you practically don't need to leave. Cheri was also kind enough to let us take a few pictures on the garden grounds and they turned out amazing! If you stay here, you won't be disappointed. It's exactly how you would imagine a trip to paradise to be. Thank you Cheri and Scott!

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! We have enjoyed welcoming guests into our space here in Kailua - the property is huge (over 20,000 sq. ft.) and so, guests can feel very secluded in their private gardens.

Why Cheri Michel Brazwell chose Kailua

There isn't anything like it - the location is amazing - walk out the back door and you're 100 steps from Kailua Beach. The property has been likened to a botanical garden - we have planted over 3,000 trees and plants - wait until you experience the night-jasmine opening up at night. the bungalows are artfully designed with high-end furnishings, original art. We only use top linens & towels. Loving and creative attention to detail...

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our first time visit to Hawaii started off with Cheri and Scott's secluded bungalow. Cheri greeted us and provided everything we needed to make our stay complete. She even provided a few extra treats! We absolutely loved the tropical gardens ... So very beautiful ! The beach access and proximity to local businesses was perfect! The bungalow was very private and secluded ! We also enjoyed all the artistic touches in the decor . Cheri and Scott were very friendly and available if needed. We would highly suggest this hideaway.
