Kailua house description

From this private, 2 story hilltop home located on the Kailua end of Kaneohe above Kaneohe Bay (it's an easy 6 minute drive to Kailua town and beach, a few minutes more to Lanikai beach, and less than 10 minutes to Kaneohe town), you'll have PANORAMIC POSTCARD VIEWS from nearly every room -- sailboats on the bay (the weekly races provide a colorful show of spinnakers), the sandbar in the distance (location of scenes in the movie '50 First Dates'), and the Koolau mountains as the backdrop.

You can sit on the front deck and gaze at Coconut Island, reading about its fascinating history--not only was it used for shots of 'Gilligan's Island,' but it once hosted presidents, actors and royalty, and military service members on R and R, and now serves as an important marine research facility. Or, you can watch for visiting yachts or other vessels -- with the filming of 'Pirates of the Caribbean 4' in the bay, the view from the deck included a pirate ship!

The home is cooled by HILLTOP BREEZES and ceiling fans and is fully furnished with all linens and full kitchen amenities, plus extra cooking items (blender, rice cooker, coffee grinder, electric kettle, crockpot, mini food chopper, waffle iron, Foreman grill, spices). We also provide body boards, snorkeling gear, beach towels, coolers, beach umbrella, sand toys, and beach chairs.

There is 1 bedroom downstairs, plus a tub and shower bathroom; there are 3 bedrooms upstairs, plus a shower-only bathroom. Toilet is separate from the sink/shower, and has its own door off the hallway.

Also included: wireless internet access, flat screen televisions, a full-size foosball table, books and board games. To help with your choice of activities, we provide brochures, maps and local menus. The indoor dining table accommodates six; there are also 2 counter chairs and outdoor chairs plus table on the lanai.

In 6 minutes you can drive to world-renown KAILUA BEACH, where, in addition to swimming, you can enjoy activities like body boarding, surfing, kayaking, windsurfing, and kite-boarding. A few minutes beyond Kailua beach is LANIKAI BEACH, also voted as one of the country's best. There are several nearby golf courses, both public and private (including Koolau, one of the country's most challenging and most beautiful).

MILITARY guests will appreciate the short 5 minute drive to the Kaneohe Marine Base and its commissary, exchange, and private beach.

For 'big city' action, you can get to HONOLULU or WAIKIKI in about 25 minutes, or you can access the nearby H-3 onramp to head toward Pearl Harbor, the Aloha Stadium swap meet, or the airport (about 23 minutes away). Kaneohe town (home of Windward Mall) is about 10 minutes away. Continue past Kaneohe and you'll be on a scenic drive to Kualoa Beach Park, or beyond to the north shore and its famous beaches. Or, if you prefer to just relax, you can sit on the lanai with a good book and spend your day enjoying the view.

We look forward to welcoming you to our hale with a basket of Hawaiian coffee and local treats. Don't forget your camera!

Special Note: ***The paved driveway up to the house is steep -- not suitable for trucks. (Cars and SUVS are recommended). The reward is the view!

Another special note ** While we want you to enjoy the house and its decks and views, we do request that you show aloha to our neighbors on the street below by refraining from loud, late partying on the decks at night**

(Please note: We don't allow smoking or pets in the house)
