Guestbook comments from the manager

The Sunshine Cottage was absolutely perfect. I spent a lot of time researching rentals and I couldn't be happier with our choice. I look forward to many more visits. Location - Kailua is the perfect beach town. Wonderful food, gorgeous beaches, friendly locals and amazing golf. The cottage location in Kailua is perfect, walking distance to the beach and the beach park. Convenient parking, walking distance to Kalapawai market, bike & running trails. Accommodations - the cottage is wonderful, everything feels brand new and upgraded. The fully stocked kitchen made cooking at the cottage so easy. The open living space with wifi was so convenient to get a little work done (yes, even on vacation). Washer, dryer, dishwasher, everything you need for an easy, relaxing vacation. Thank you for the wonderful stay!

Perfect cottage at the most beautiful beach

  • 5 of 5

We loved spending our time at this beautiful cottage. It was so comfortable, I would live there full time.

It was a very short walk to Kailua Beach, where we watched the most amazing sunrises every morning, kayaked, swam and more.

The professional kitchen was stocked with everything we needed to prepare the fresh local ingredients we gathered around the island at various farmers markets, fishmongers and fruit stands. There are good local restaurants nearby, but we love cooking and this kitchen was built for it. The charcoal Webber grill was so nice to have on hand.

The outdoor shower was not only fun but functional. Since we were always coming and going from the beach, it was handy to shower off before heading inside.

The neighborhood was quiet and peaceful. The owners were kind and helpful, but not intrusive.

The bed was very comfortable. We only needed to use the airconditioning one humid night, but otherwise, the house was pleasant day and night.

The bathroom is well appointed, with a bidet, and multiple shower heads. Once you use a bidet, you never want to go back. Glad they had one!

Most importantly, we felt welcome and at home. The cottage was peaceful, rejuvenating and the place we found our center as we regained the strength we needed to return to our regular lives.

Simply Outstanding Accommodation

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Jim, Marg, Zak and Nina for everything you've done to make Sunshine Cottage a five star home away from home.

We can sum up our impressions in four words:

LOCATION: Central location for all of Oahu and very close proximity to Kailua Beach, one of the finest beaches in all of Hawaii.

COMFORT: Sunshine Cottage is an upscale cottage with high end appliances and accessories. Such a comfortable nice place to start a wonderful day.

SERVICE: Jim, Zak and Nina are an outstanding team always ready to help out when needed ensuring that everything is clean and functional, or just there to offer friendly advice and recommendations of where to go, what to see and how to get there.

SECURITY: Sunshine Cottage is nestled in a tight little group of homes in a friendly little community far enough off the main road to provide us a quiet, secure and peaceful feeling during our entire stay.

A Gem! 5 Stars!!

  • 5 of 5

It was our first visit to Oahu as we traditionally stay on Maui each year and found this island to be breathe taking with beauty and the Sunshine Cottage sits next to one of the top 10 beaches in the world at Kailua Beach...Heaven!!We LOVED our stay and we were blessed to discover the white sand beach with turquoise water just across the street from the Sunshine Cottage. We really liked that the owners of this property have paid attention to all the details that make for a relaxing stay. The kitchen was filled with great appliances, pots, dishes of all sorts and I was never wanting for a missing tool in the kitchen because it was all there! The cottage is large, quiet and peaceful, private and beautiful birds and butterflies came to visit. The ocean was so close by and we walked on the beach and swam each day. Kite surfers were fascinating and my husband took lessons on the beach each day learning the new sport. Thank you Marg and Jim for sharing this piece of paradise you have created. We look forward to returning to this beautiful property as it is our new Hawaii favorite!

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage we rented was fantastic. First, the owners and the property manager answered all our questions about the cottage and had many helpful tips about our location, where to shop, eat and recreate. Secondly, the cottage is very roomy, comfortable and clean. A plus also, is that the cottage is located across from a park and that park a fronts the Kailua beach. The Kailua beach is the calmest of all Hawaiian beaches, you won't be disappointed.

Wonderful week!

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a wonderful week in this island home. The house is really a lovely home and everything we needed was there. It was great to get up each morning and head across the street to one of the most beautiful beaches in the world! I enjoyed the decor of the home and the furniture was so interesting and beautiful! The small town atmosphere of Kailua made this our best trip to Hawaii. We thank you for sharing your home with us and would love to return someday.

Great Property, Awesome Location!

  • 5 of 5

If you're going to Oahu and don't need more than one bedroom, this is probably the perfect place for you to stay. Kailua Beach and Park are just idyllic. The beach is long. The sand is soft white powder. The water is pure clean and aquamarine in color. The shady park is a perfect place to hang out after you've had enough sun and surf. There's a village feel to it all - far from the touristy chaos of Waikiki and Honolulu. There are groceries and restaurants close by. This property is right across the street from the beach and park. Together, they make up a slice of heaven that was very difficult to leave.

The home itself is just wonderful - the photos don't lie. If I was at a point in life when I could get by with down-sizing from a big old family home, this would be my choice. (I've made notes so I can duplicate it someday.) The interior is so spacious and well appointed... truly, this place qualifies as a jewel box. The kitchen is outfitted with everything you could need. The bed is c o m f o r t a b l e ! The linens were top quality. The home was wonderfully clean. I keep asking my spouse "Are you sure we can't just retire and try to buy the place?"

Thanks, Marjorie and Zak, for making our visit to Oahu so special. From Kailua, we could get to all the sights and activities quickly. The best part was the property, the house, and the park and beach across the street. Maholo!
