Well Appointed Quaint Seaside Cottage!
No need to continue researching safe accommodations for your visit to the island of Oahu. My research led me to the seaside town of Kailua. Up a private lane through a gated fence, directly to the dutch-door of a quaint cozy cottage! It was the perfect home away from home. Equipped with a full open kitchen suited for any type of cook...or perhaps you are like me, just desiring a beautiful place to pour a nice glass of Merlot while enjoying my beautiful flowers we picked up at the grocery store down the road. After an awesome venture to the North Shore's 2015 Billabong Surfing Masters competition and a visit to beautiful Waimea Valley, it was time to close our first day. The hot shower felt so good. I loved how "I" controlled the water pressure. Ladies, the lighting in the bathroom is perfect. There is even a retractable, magnifying mirror for a closer look at our beauty! I am a solid "morning person", however the king-sized bed is so comfy, I even questioned getting out of it. Then I remembered, I was only steps away from two of the most beautiful beaches on the island. Focused, I brewed our coffee and grabbed a beach chair. It was going to be another wonderful 83 degree day in December. We visited many places. The Macadamia Nut Farm Tour is not to be missed. You'll love it! Try some shrimp at a shrimp farm or stay closer to home and enjoy Buzz's Steakhouse. You won't be disappointed! Eat the fresh fruits of the island. Explore, unwind and enjoy. Don't overpack, use the washer and dryer at the cottage!
Jim and Marjorie, We loved our visit. Your home felt like our home! Please convey our gratitude with Zak. We appreciated his kindness and professionalism. He was very helpful upon our arrival. It was a pleasure meeting Paul and his lovely wife. The evening prior to our departure, we elected to share our perishables with the neighbors next door. What a lovely visit we had! Thank you for the many added touches. The music/cd player, the well equipped kitchen to the table coasters. The detailed Artwork! I am curious regarding the story behind the signed surfboard displayed in the kitchen. Your eye for detail has not gone unnoticed! The many kinds of bed pillows to suit all types of sleepers is brilliant! We were so pleased and felt as though we were visiting family and you know... Family always returns😊 Mahalo for a wonderful "home away" experience!
P.S. We hope you enjoyed the bottle of wine we left for you. It was made in our region.
Thank you so much for taking the time to review our home.
We call the Cottage home when we are in Hawaii, and we miss it every day we are away.
The Cottage is almost 8 years old now, my sons and brother-in-law helped me build it, my wife and I did the design and furnishing plans. It is built to resemble the old plantation style homes of the 1940's.
The artwork is from both local and French artists. Our favorite piece is the painting by Susie Anderson that is hanging over the TV.
Most of the 'artifacty' stuff came from Island Treasures in Kailua, our good friend Gayle is the owner and she lives on Lanai'i now - she still commutes and works in the store most days.
The surfboard in the kitchen with all the signatures on it was a surprise 60th birthday card/present from my wife Marj and my son Chris..
Kailua will always be 'home' to us.
Mahalo for selecting our home to spend your vacation in.

Well appointed beautiful home
We spent eleven wonderful days enjoying this lovely home. A few minutes walk to expansive Kailua beach that had lots of sand and great swimming. Although this home was close to several others, like many beach communities, we felt the privacy of a small but well manicured side and backyard. Loved all the tropical landscaping and the comfortable furniture of this spotless Hawaiian home.
Cottage is quaint and well appointed w/ everything a guest would need.
Place was well maintained, comfortable, nicely decorated.
Charming and spacious cottage across the street from Kailua Beach Park
My husband and I spent a week in this lovely cottage. The location, across the street from beautiful Kailua Beach, is wonderful. The house is spacious and beautifully decorated, with everything one needs to cook, relax and be comfortable, including beach chairs, hiking guides and beach towels. The garden setting is great. We followed Zak's restaurant recommendations and were never disappointed, eating wonderful meals just minutes away in Kailua. We loved it and hope to return!
The beach cottage of our dreams!
Just spent a week at the Sunshine Cottage, and it was everything we expected and more. Photos do not due justice to the roominess and airiness of the cottage. Fantastic experience, so close to the beach and food services. Due to the high ceilings and fans, it stays relatively cool and we never needed the A.C.. Zak was great to work with, very quick to respond to emails.
Lovely Cottage at Kailua Beach
My husband and I spent a week at this lovely cottage in December. It was beautifully furnished and designed with great care. The pictures are very accurate and the house was immaculate. The ceilings are gorgeous! The modern kitchen is well equipped. If you enjoy cooking, you'll find everything you need here. Staying here is reminiscent of being in a Hawaiian plantation on a small scale. It's very roomy and perfect for a couple and only a one minute walk from Kailua Beach Park which is one of the most perfect beaches in the Islands. It's a great beach for a long walk. Although the cottage is very close to homes on either side, our stay was very quiet. For restaurants, we always enjoy the food at Champa Thai in Kailua town and Bob's Pizzeria has good pizza. For a nice salad, try Aloha Salads. Nico's is very good for fresh fish, a small menu but delicious. There's also a large Whole Foods if you want to get nicely prepared meals. A fun thing to do is to take a ride to the North Shore through all the tiny bayside towns and you're in the countryside. We found Zak very responsive and easy to work with. Thank you, Zak, for a great stay. We hope to return.
