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.

Stay in Kailua, not Honolulu

  • 5 of 5

If you are visiting Oahu, Kailua is the place to go. Honolulu is way too crowded with people and congested with traffic. Kailua is perfect. Gorgeous scenery, beautiful beaches, and a nice little town with everything you need for a great vacation. This house is perfect for families. Why would you stay in cramped hotel when you can spread out at a house? Nice yard and patio, very private. Nice hot tub. Beach chairs and boogie boards ready to go. Plenty of space in the house. All the conveniences of home such as laundry and full kitchen. Loved it!

There is only one word that would describe our stay & the word is "Perfect". It was perfect from the minute we booked the location, communication with the owner, our stay & our check out process. It actually felt like we were in our own home. I highly recommend it for anyone who wants to visit the island of Oahu. I'm definitely keeping the location information for future visits.

Spacious Clean Beautiful House

Very well maintained house with everything you need. We had a relaxing time here - my parents especially love the yard during evening and morning to enjoy the cool breeze.

Great Kailua location

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay at this property. We are very familiar with the Windward side of the island, so this was a great place for us. The beds were great and the unit was clean and ready for us. Bill, the property manager was great. We had a problem with a bathroom and he was right on it. Nice place to stay.

A nice place for family

  • 5 of 5

My family just came back from Oahu yesterday. We stayed in this house for a week. It is a very nice place to stay, close to beaches, close to grocery shopping and easy to go anywhere in this island. The house is neat and well furnitured. The agency prepared shampoo, conditioner and body wash for us. It was a surprise. We loved the kitchen and we enjoyed to make and have breakfast everyday. WiFi is really high speed. Beach chairs, coolers, beach umbrella and short surf boards are provided. There even were some sand toys for kids. Richard is a very kind gentleman. He replys my email very fast and always give me right answers to my questions. We really enjoyed the week we spent in this house. The only concerns for this house were: 1) we have observed lizards in the house. 2) We saw some unknown animal's excrement in one of the bedrooms.

Enchanted Lakes/Kailua upscale, modern affordable

  • 5 of 5

As a native to Oahu who lives on the mainland now, I cannot see any reason to stay in hotels anymore with options such as this. The affordability, convenience, comfort, amenities, location and spaciousness of this property is impossible to beat. I stayed here during a recent visit over the Thanksgiving break and (with the owner's permission) had my sister and cousins family over. It as easy and enjoyable as being at our family home in Moanalua. Being a former kamaaina and very "picky" about my family's accomodations, I would recommend wholeheartedly to anyone.

To respond to a couple of reviews for clarity:

WIFI review: Our experience with the wifi was nothing but positive

POOP review: A gecko was probably responsible for the "poop" described. Looking similar to the GEICO gecko and making sure no bugs or insects are in the home, geckos are considered very good luck in local Hawaiian culture.
