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.

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.

Convenient, comfortable, well organized hide-away that balances indoor and outdoor needs. Blends in perfectly with the natural beauty of the island and small town charm.

Wonderful Kailua Beach bungalow

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful gardens, comfortable accommodations and a primo location made this Kailua Beach bungalow a gem. Our bungalow was equipped with everything we needed and our gracious hosts were helpful and available when we needed them. Really hated to leave and already planning a trip back.

Absolute heaven!

  • 5 of 5

Cheri and Scott are truly the perfect hosts, very welcoming and genuinely interested in making our stay enjoyable in all regards.

For us, their place was the ideal oasis for a a restful stay. Unbeatable location with close proximity to one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, close to shopping and still secluded in a wonderfully designed tropical garden. Wow!

We can definitely recommend to anybody without hesitation, you will not be disappointed. We will be back!

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.

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.

The bungalow guests may have two guests visit at a time. Guest parking is available at the beach park with easy access into the property from the beach gate. Keeping the parking easy to access and the property a quiet and peaceful getaway is designed to give our guests a memorable holiday...
