Over the mountain, not far from the Sea, Lies an old shack under a tree There's 2 chairs and a bed, a nice place to sleep No Jacuzzi, but there is a t.v. Our only air (con) is the trade-wind breeze. And if you don't mind all the birds in the Tree, You'll find their songs soothing, while you hang out on the balcony: Yes, there's a place to cook too and a bathroom as well, in our simple Shack, up on a hill. Our rates are low, as you can see; lower than most- it seems to be. If you don't expect more than our simplicity, and are not in need of a fine resort down on the Sea- you may like to stay in our Shack under The Tree, and come to agree, it just may be, the coolest Shack in all Hawaii.

ps. Our 'Shack' is around the back, of our house, and you get there by walking around the side of our main home, to the back. The terrain is gravel and stepping stones, so a large, heavy rolling suitcase is not very practical, as they don't roll very well on gravel- all to say, smaller or more carryable bags would be easier for you, unless your back is young and strong and you can manage heavier bags.

we are up on a hill overlooking Kaneohe Bay, probably one of the most beautiful views on the island, and the only navigable bay in Hawaii. We are between Kailua and Kaneohe Towns, and about 12 miles from Honolulu, over the mountain, and 20 miles to the Honolulu International Airport.
Too many things to see and do to name here, so ask us when you are here.
Year Purchased: 1954
About the owner: a simple guy, with a simple wife and 9 kids: graduated from Kailua High School in june of 64, went to SBCC for college, stayed out the next year, got drafted, was in the Army for 2 years, then got introduced to the Gift of Eternal Life in the early 70's, went to the Philippines as a Missionary for Jesus in 74, ellie was our first disciple. We fell in love, got married, had 9 kids and lived happily ever after. Would have to sit with me on The Lanai with a beer, to fill in the rest. :-)
Why the Owner Chose Kaneohe: Back in 1954, mom and dad bought this property and its where i grew up.Thru-out the years, they were always entertaining friends, and even strangers on the Lanai. After the property came into my name, and we needed to supplement our income, we figured turning people on to the Island for a reasonable price would be the key- and since 09 it has been.
Why this property? well, rather than boasting, how about we just let past reviews on our other property, i.d. # 264002, speak for us.
