Enchanted Lake House Rental Photos and Description

Views & Tradewinds at Cozy Cottage on a Hill, Minutes to World's 'Best Beaches'

Get a great deal in the best beachside town of Kailua when basic single room rates in Waikiki are up to $350/night!

The panoramic views of Kailua town and Enchanted Lake are amazing every time you step outside onto the wraparound lanai or look out its large windows. The cottage is clean, bright and airy, lit by skylights, and cooled from trade winds. Relax and enjoy your vacation in our quiet neighborhood away from all the hustle and bustle of Waikiki for a much better value driven price!

Built in 2002, this is a standard 2 bedroom, 2 bath cottage has approximately 1400 sq. ft. of cozy indoor and airy outdoor living spaces, furnished with elegant elephant bamboo furniture (a renewable resource), and energy efficient appliances, e.g. refrigerator, dishwasher, washer and dryer. You can use the electric stove in the kitchen, or use the stainless steel grill on the lanai for cooking.

***Please note*** The cottage is accessible only by stairs. The stairs start with 5 steps that lead to a 30 ft. landing, 4 steps that lead to a 10 ft. landing, then 12 steps that lead to the house.

Master bedroom has a king bed and en suite bathroom with jetted tub, television, ceiling fans, a/c, and a sky light.

Guest bedroom has a king bed and 2 twin beds; flat screen t.v., ceiling fans and a/c.

The dining table seats 6 comfortably with 2 seats at the breakfast bar.

The large lanai has two high dining table that seats 8 to relax and enjoy the views, and a stainless steel gas grill for you to enjoy outdoor meals.

We are strict about the 6 person maximum capacity of the house. This number includes toddlers and young children. If you have 7-8 people in your party, we recommend you rent the Studio as a 3rd bedroom option.

There is a large blue tiled turtle pool with a slide for the adventurous.

There are lots linens, bath and beach towels available.

The cottage is completely separated from the owner-occupied main house, located on the same property. The owners have two friendly black-lab mix dogs who are 8 years old that reside poolside by the main house. The dogs are gated in the pool patio area and are not allowed to access the guest house grounds.

Since we have our own 9 year old, we are family friendly with infants, toddlers, and children; we try to stock the cottage with amenities to make your stay safe, comfortable and fun.

The property is located about 2-3 miles from Conde Nast's rated three 'Best Beaches' in the world, Kailua, Lanikai, and Waimanalo Beaches. Kailua is famous for its water sports and we can recommend places to purchase or rent the toys to help you stay in the water, like surfboards, kayaks, windsurfers, masks and snorkels,and kitesurfing gear available. Let us know how we can make your vacation the best ever!

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

The property was very nice - well furnished and stocked; updated and clean. It was very comfortable for 4 adults & two kids. The lanai was really nice, with a great, breezy view, and the pool and slide was great. The location was good, as well. Less than 5 minutes' drive to grocery and similar stores, and a quick drive to the beach. It was also very helpful that the property came with many beach towels and beach toys/equipment so we didn't have to bring our own. Highly recommend!

Comfortable for our family

  • 5 of 5

Perfect for our family 2 parents, 2 kids 4 and 8, and 1 aunty. Comfortable low-key home base with everything we needed to make Kailua our home town for a week while visiting family. Our second stay at this cottage. We will return! One note: Stairs to enter so not for anyone with trouble climbing stairs.

We were very impressed by everything! The house is very clean, there are plenty of bath towels and beach towels. There is a washer and dryer so we were able to pack very light. The neighborhood is quiet and very homey feeling, and the view is absolutely gorgeous! We added another night, we just didn't want to leave.

If we visit this island again this will be where we'll stay!

Even better than when we stayed before!

  • 4 of 5

We had a delightful week. Improvements and additions since our previous stay were noted: the new King beds, and the air-conditioning units.

The owners were friendly and helpful. Everything was an easy drive from our Kailua home for a week..
