About Zak Bryson

I surf and my wife loves to ocean swim. We like the relaxed casual lifestyle Kailua offers. We love the pace of Kailua and decided to make it our home over 20 years ago.

Zak Bryson purchased this house in 2000

Why Zak Bryson chose Kailua

Walking distance to the most incredible family beach on Oahu.

What makes this house unique

Small Beach town with many dining and shopping options.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My family and I stayed at the Kimo's House and it was awesome! The location is across from the beautiful beach and you actually walk thru a small park before getting to the beach. We had a large group with adults and babies, and the home was perfect! I totally recommend the house, especially for families traveling with kids and babies. We look forward to staying there again.

Very nice stay at Plumeria Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This place is right on Kailua Bay/Beach/Park on Oahu island. If you are with family/kids and looking for beach house located at one of best beach on Oahu then this is the place to choose..

Owner Zak is very nice and helpful.

Everything is exactly as advertised..

We have been to Waikiki beach and famous Lanikai beach that is near by but without parking or shower facility.

We found that Kailua Beach/Park that this house is located at is the best beach for kids and certainly better than Waikiki or Lanikai.

Once we are done with beach, we used to just walk back to house and use outside shower (with hot water) at house.

Zak provides detailed direction, and pay attention.

Besides beach next door, Honolulu is just 30 minutes drive on beautiful highway and there are lot of shops in Kailua to meet the needs to avoid traveling to Honolulu and its traffic jams..

Very peaceful and trouble free place with all required amenities to make your stay nice and easy.

We had great time.

We would certainly like to stay again here on next Oahu visit.

Another great vacation at Kailua Beach in Plumeria Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent our sixth winter visit at Plumeria Cottage. Well furnished and maintained. It can accommodate six persons with three bedrooms and two baths. Great TV system including Netflix. Kailua Beach is a five minute walk away. It is one of the most beautiful beaches in Hawaii. Wonderful deck for activities and meals. Kitchen is well equipped for cooking and BBQ grill outside. Kailua town has great variety of stores and restaurants including a Whole Foods. Manager responsive to our needs. We are already booked for our next visit to Plumeria Cottage.

Plumeria Cottage - Nice!

  • 5 of 5

We had a very nice stay in the Plumeria Cottage (4 adults and 2 children). The property is well-maintained and clean, with comfortable beds and two bathrooms. The kitchen has everything for those wishing to cook for themselves. (Perhaps with the exception of a Keurig - I missed mine, but did ok with the drip machine). We ate in almost every meal and loved the charcoal BBQ! There were plenty of beach toys for the children and the lovely Kailua beach is an easy walk from the property. The outdoor shower makes it easy to keep sand outside, and there is a washer/dryer. The towels and linens were very nice - and there were plenty of beach towels. The property manager promptly answered any questions or requests. We hope to return again in the future!

Wonderful Trip

  • 5 of 5

We rented the Hibiscus Cottage for our Thanksgiving trip to visit our daughter who is living there. It was perfect for us. We had our parents as well as our family of 4, so six people total and with the three bedrooms and two bathrooms it was just the right size. We really enjoyed the outdoor space to BBQ dinner and sit outside enjoying the weather after it got dark. The kitchen is updated and was really nice to prepare meals in. It's right in the middle of everything, great beaches right nearby but also can jump on the highway and head up to North Shore or into Honolulu. I would highly recommend it and we will definitely stay there again.

Stay at Plumeria Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We quite enjoyed our stay at the Plumeria Cottage. It is as beautiful as the pictures show. The house was very clean and had all of the amenities that we have come to expect and more. Bedding and couches were quite comfortable for sitting and sleeping and with two full bathrooms, no waiting. There are plenty of beach toys to take with us on a short walk to one of the prettiest beaches you would want to see. The mostly covered lanai has a view of the mountains and was perfect for enjoying meals, BBQing, or just relaxing. This is a place that I could easily stay at again and hope to do so.
