Overview

Enchanted Lake House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

This unique private home in Enchanted Lake will allow you to enjoy the best Kailua has to offer without an extraordinary price tag. Lovingly appointed with high-end appliances and modern furnishings, this large home with an open floor plan offers the perfect setting for entertaining, relaxing, sun tanning, and enjoying Kailua's extraordinary year-round weather.

Renovated in 2010, this home is conveniently located walking distance to Enchanted Lake Shopping Center (grocery, Starbucks, Subway, McDonalds, Ben Franklin, Round Table Pizza, etc...), The Shack restaurant and sports bar, and St. John Vianny Catholic church. A short 5 minute 1.7 mile drive brings you to world-famous Kailua beach and another 5 minutes to the incomparable Lanikai Beach. Kailua town is also a 5 minute drive to shopping, restaurants, coffee shops, post office and the local farmers market.

The house features a 4 person Jacuzzi and two newly renovated, modern bathrooms. The master bedroom has a California King bed, a private bath, private garden and a 40' TV and digital HD cable. The other two large bedrooms have Queen beds, a private garden and share a full bath.

About Richard Lewis

I am the CEO of a software company that has had to relocate to Ventura, CA. I came to Hawaii in 1987 from North Carolina and fell in love with the state and the island of Oahu. To escape the hectic pace of Honolulu I moved to Kailua in 2007. Kailua is definitely the best place on Oahu to live and vacation. Small town feel, safe, friendly people, gorgeous beaches, and wonderful weather. I am an avid Crossfitter and exercise enthusiast and love being outside as much as possible.

Richard Lewis purchased this house in 2007

Why Richard Lewis chose Kailua

This location is central to everything. Close to the Enchanted Lake Shopping Center, close to Kailua town and close to the beaches. It is on a nice, quiet residential street and is a large, 9500 square foot flat lot. I also love the privacy of the large walled back yard.

What makes this house unique

The house has high, open-beam ceilings and an open floor plan. The back lanai extends the living space out into the yard under the palm trees. The private back yard is great for sun tanning, grilling and playing volleyball or catch. The furnishings are much better than even a high-end hotel. I enjoy entertaining friends, using the outdoor shower and jacuzzi, cooking out and sitting out under the stars at night.

Family Reunion Fun

  • 5 of 5

The House was perfect for us. Check-in and out were a breeze. The owner was very prompt with our security refund. The location was great, lots to do close by. The house was great! Everything we needed was there from beach toys to video games / movies. The kitchen was very well equipped.

Great location, fully stocked, plenty of space, just no WI-Fi

  • 4 of 5

For our vacation, the location worked out great for us. This area was not too busy, but you had options for grocery shopping, fast food, etc all nearby if you liked. You have covered parking outside for one car.

As far as the house, it was clean, had plenty of space, and the owner has it stocked with about all of the kitchen accessories/utensils I think you could ever need. Before going to buy supplies, check all the drawers.....you might already have sandwich bags, foil, plastic wrap, etc. :) Just as stated, all the appliances are high end with great options. A separate room for the washer and dryer and cleaning area right at the back door entrance was very convenient. Each bedroom had a comfortable bed, plenty of storage, and its own AC unit that would get the rooms plenty cold. The bathrooms were nice and clean and laid out nicely. Just a really cool layout on the house.

I was very skeptical about not having AC for the living room / kitchen, but it turned out to be just fine for us. Now, we were not home for a large portion of the time we were there, but the amazing weather worked out ok. The weather was nothing short of absolutely perfect when we stayed....and we are from Houston.

The backyard was very nice with an outdoor table with umbrella that was a great place to have breakfast. There are a couple of lounge chairs set up that were nice. There are also 2 shower heads outside to clean yourselves and your belongings off after visiting the beach. Very convenient and helpful. There are also a few items such as beach chair, boogie boards, etc that will help out when going to the beach. We left a cheaper plastic Wal Mart cooler with wheels there for the next visitors!

Now, the ONLY complaint I really have was the lack of WiFi. We literally did not have it our entire stay. We made the calls to the owner and were notified that there appeared to be issues with the provider. Communication with the issue was good, but we ended up not having WiFi the entire time. With 3 boys 11 and older with Ipads, Iphones, etc, our phone bill was HUGE! Just something to keep in mind if there continue to be issues.

If we do make it back to Oahu, we will consider staying here again.

Owner's Response: Sorry about the Wifi. At some point someone broke the fiber cable going into the router. Hawaiian Telcom was not able to repair it until the end of your stay. It's the only wifi downtime we've had in 4 years.

Up to date furnishings, close to a beautful beach Kaiula.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this well equipped home with pleasant furnishings. The beach nearby Kailua was beautiful. It was centrally located and attractions not too far away, Waikiki, Diamond Head, Hanauma Bay, and Pearl Harbor.

UNCOMFORTABLE!

  • 1 of 5

Animal droppings in every room! No AC except in bedrooms. Inside temp reached 90 degrees WITH windows opened hoping for some relief from the heat. Storage room with the "clean" towels, toilet paper and paper towels was covered with animal droppings and THAT room was being cooled with an AC unit. We contacted the owner, Richard Lewis, who refused to allow us the use of a portable AC unit in the storage room, and sent his property manager over to ensure that we didn't use it. He explained that the cost of electricity was to much, and that he does not make money from the house to afford the extra cooling costs. After 3 of staying at this address, wecouldn't take the heat and feces. We were forced to seek other lodging options, and we DEFINITELY made the right choice! We secured another home from this site with cold AC, clean environment, and a welcoming owner, a pool, ocean view, and MUCH MORE for around the same price!

My advice to you readers.....KEEP LOOKING! You'll find something decent and won't jeopardize your health or comfort.

(We took photos.....if ONLY we could share them with you!)

HORRIBLE!!!

  • 1 of 5

Rental was misrepresented. Owner insisted on cooling a room full of feces, instead of the main living area. Poop was EVERYWHERE! In our rooms, in the main living area, entryway. Horrible stay, ended up leaving the rental early and find other accommodations. Do NOT recommend.
