My husband and I recently stayed at Sharon's Serenity Bed and Breakfast and we didn't especially enjoy our stay. The location is primo, within a few blocks walk to the beach, one of the best beaches in Kailua, Hawaii. The house is a basic ranch style home with 4 bedrooms. The furniture in the bedrooms is very old and rickety.... More

I keep seeing people using the word 'relaxing' in Sharon's reviews, which is absolutely correct. We have such busy lives and didn't want to get caught in the bustle of Waikiki crowds. The beach close to the house looks like a dream come true with soft, almost white sand and aquamarine water, and it was never crowded. Sharon's home has... More

We felt like we were good friends visiting from out of town. Quiet when we wanted to be alone, friendly when we wanted to enjoy some of Sharon's companionship. The rooms and breakfast are simple but more than adequate. Sharon's pool and gardens are magnificent. Sharon and Bailey, we thank you.

Three of us stayed at Sharon Serenity for little more than a week and it was great experience! Upon arrival, we felt right at home and very much enjoyed beautiful backyard with pool - where we end up hanging around during evenings. Property conveniently located to one of the best beaches on Hawaii (Lanikai beach). Breakfast was ready for us... More

Sharon is a wonderful lady, fabulous hostess who makes you very welcome in her home. Her house is like being at home - you are welcome to sit in the living room when or if you are not able to sleep due to time change, jet lag, etc. The coffee is always available. She has a wonderful dog, Bailey, who... More

My wife and I returned to Oahu to say goodbye to my mother’s last sister (died December 9 at 92 years) my Mother passed 2010. Both raised in Manoa . My wife and I wanted a place that was easy to find and located in Kailua and very quiet, free of traffic noise. We found Sharon’s Serenity and stayed January... More

I am not much for writing negative reviews, so I will keep this as positive as possible. If you want negative, there's plenty on here that will pretty much describe what others found at Sharon's Serenity. You can focus on the negative, or you can make the most out of life by looking for some positives. This is essentially a... More

Sharon's Serenity Bed & Breakfast is located within walking distance of beautiful Kailua Beach, one of the nicest beaches we visited while in Hawaii. As promised, Casey the Bichon and his companion Bailey were there to greet us (but since they are getting old, they mostly sleep by the door, guarding it faithfully!) Unlike the "continental breakfasts" served at chain... More

My husband and I absolutely enjoyed staying at Sharon's Serenity. We were celebrating our honeymoon and we stayed there for 6 nights. We had originally booked the blue room and slept there for one night however, Sharon gifted us with upgrading us to the Pool room. The Pool room was perfect! We had an amazing view of the pool and...

We met Sharon as we arrived at her B&B, and she was a very attentive host from the start. And while others found the home living off-putting, we thought it was charming. The room was perfectly adequate, and the location is exactly what we wanted--30 minutes from the airport, away from the Honolulu busyness and noise, but walking distance from... More
