Gated Estate, in Quiet Neighborhood, Sleeps 2-16 in 8 Bedrooms, 4.25 Baths
Why Liz Hamilton chose Enchanted Lake
After traveling to more than 100 countries including expeditions to the North Pole, Antarctica, Africa and the Amazon finding the perfect place to vacation and relax was never an easy task for me. After numerous trips to Hawaii over the years I experienced a vacationers epiphany driving the Pali Highway from Honolulu to Kailua on a beautiful sunny day in September. I knew immediately that Kailua was a town that provided me and my family the thrill of an exotic destination with all the creature comforts that make traveling civilized. When I entered the private and gated confines of Kolea Estate I immediately feel in love with a comforting, calming, sprawling and secluded environment offered by this property. It is my wish to offer the traveler more than a rental home with this sweeping enclave to escape reality and to find comfort after exhilarating days on Kailua Beach, exploring the island of Oahu and tasting the colorful flavors of Hawaii. It became my goal to create an estate get-a-way that embraced outdoor living, privacy, and comfort for an intimate couple looking for a secluded paradise to a gathering place for families with children in need of a bonding space more conducive than a typical hotel room. Kolea Estate is developing into a retreat for travelers of all types who appreciate their own space to savor vacation as they want to experience vacation. I hope visitors to Kolea Estate and Kailua feel the mystical allure of Hawaii that exists beyond the stereotypical hotels of Waikiki.

Exceeded our expections
Everything we needed was there. Many thanks to Misty from all our guests.
Wonderful property in a wonderful location
We had 11 family members at the property. The accommodations were excellent, located in an upscale neighborhood. Everyone had a wonderful time. We loved the privacy of the bedroom arrangements and the separate but attached villa building. The layout of the property is great with a very private feel. Pool, outdoor kitchen and bbq, lots of lounge chairs and beach equipment were among the favorite amenities. The property is located very close to the town center (at maybe a mile we considered it walking distance) which has nice restaurants, boutique shopping as well as Whole Foods and Target. Several public beaches are within very easy access. We will go again!
Great property for a large group
There was lots of space to visit and we enjoyed the outdoor space the most. Well equipped kitchen. The 2 sets of wash/dryer was great for a larger group. Great shopping and dining in the area and beach was only a 20 minute walk.
The best Retreat ever!
I loved the place! It was spotless, beautiful and comfortable. Misty was so helpful! She was always available when we needed her or had a question. My staff loved the property. We were totally relaxed and re-juvinated. I will definitely be a return customer!
Nice family house , good for a large group .
It was exactly what we needed for our group, big house, lots of space outside ...
Wonderful place for a large group
Our family of 13 stayed at this spacious and comfortable property; everyone had privacy while enjoying shared spaces. The kitchen is large enough for group cooking and dish-washing with a variety of appliances including a bread maker and rice cooker. The outdoor living area was a great place to gather when people came back from their island activities, watch the kids swim or hold a Cups or Farkle tournament. There were plenty of beach towels, chairs, coolers and other beach equipment available. Two sets of washer/dryers were helpful keeping beach towels fresh. If you have pre-K age children, you should know that the bunkroom has an exterior door that leads directly to the pool area...it was not a concern for our older children but it is a consideration. Misty responded to our questions and problems by text promptly.
The unique shops, boutiques and restaurants in Kailua can't be found elsewhere on the island. And nearby Lanikai beach (less than 1 mile away) is rated as one of the best beaches in the world! Sunrise there is spectacular!
