Kaneohe house description

Just five minutes' drive to stunning Kailua Beach, you will love every minute you spend in this bright, comfortable 3+ bedroom home. The breathtaking views of the ocean and Kaneohe Bay, Coconut Island, and the magnificent Ko'olau Mountains will make it hard to leave the house. (We can honestly attest to the fact that the pictures, no matter how good, cannot do justice to the views!)

You will be very centrally and conveniently located, but also get to experience the best of both worlds -- you are in striking distance of some of the best beaches imaginable, endless wonderful hiking trails, and attractions, but also come home to a tranquil oasis at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac, nestled up against a lush, tropical jungle. Wake up to morning birdsong from this secluded haven. Zero traffic noise here.

Fabulous central location 2 blocks from Kaneohe Bay Drive and city bus stop. Five minutes to Kailua Beach. Easy access to H-3, Likelike and Pali Highways. Five minutes from grocery stores, restaurants and all the amenities you need. 25 minutes from Honolulu Airport, 25 minutes from Pearl Harbor, 45 minutes from the North Shore, 30 minutes from Waikiki.

This is a 3-bedroom, 2.5 bath 1600 square feet house. On the main second level, there are three bedrooms, 1.5 bathrooms, kitchen, dining and living rooms. The living room offers a full screen view of the bay, ocean and mountains, and a glass sliding door opens onto the covered lanai. On the first floor there is a family room/den with a comfortable Ikea sectional sofa which easily converts to a double bed. A full bathroom is next to the family room.

All rooms have lots of jalousie (louvre) windows letting in abundant light and welcoming breeze.

The master bedroom (main second level) is tucked away in the back corner of the house, surrounded by the lush jungle, with wrap around jalousie windows that allow you to feel at one with nature. Sleep super comfortably on the Tempur Pedic king mattress and Tempur Pedic pillows. (Please note that this mattress sits directly on the floor.)

The second bedroom (main second level) includes a glass top computer desk, a single trundle bed (very comfortable), and views to the bay, ocean and mountains.

The third bedroom (main second level) has a new, very high quality queen size air mattress that sits high off the ground and feels more like a regular bed than a traditional air mattress. It offers options for soft, medium and firm inflation levels, and has a built-in secondary pump that keeps it inflated at your chosen firmness throughout the night. That means it never needs attention and you don't need to wonder about it staying inflated. An air mattress, completely redefined!

The main living area is an open-plan layout, with the kitchen, dining and living rooms all facing the spectacular views. The lanai off the living room extends the living area and brings the magnificent expanse and beauty of the outdoors inside. Whether preparing a meal, enjoying your food, lounging on the sofa, or relaxing on the lanai, you will be mesmerized by the ever-changing vista.

From the kitchen, access the laundry room available for your convenience. This laundry area is also utilized by the cottage at the rear of the house.

No two days, rainbows or cloud formations are the same. Our position at the top of the hill and end of the cul-de-sac gives you an obstructed, elevated view straight out to the natural wonder of the scenic beauty surrounding us. And being situated on the windward (northeast) side of the island, we are blessed with near-constant 'trade winds' which provide a natural cooling breeze that keeps the tropical warmth just perfect.

There is off-street parking for one car in the garage or on the asphalt part of the driveway, and public transportation (bus) is on Kaneohe Bay Drive (only 3 blocks away).

The windward side offers the true island paradise experience. From the stunningly beautiful turquoise beaches to the Jurassic Park-like Ko'olau mountain range with its sheer, incredibly steep cliffs covered in lush vegetation, this is the best that Hawaii has to offer. There are four, different, world-class beaches within a 15 minute drive. There are tons of hikes where you can see waterfalls, mountain ranges, breathtaking ocean views, gorgeous flora and fauna, and humpback whales (during the November-April season). You are also about 50 minutes from the funky North Shore with its huge waves in winter and great swimming and snorkeling in the summer. Honolulu (known to the locals as 'town') is an easy 25-minute drive over the Ko'olau mountain range.

In the interest of full disclosure, bugs are part of living in Hawaii, as are other creatures who visit from our jungle. The occasional cockroach is not a sign of sanitation problems. You also might see a cane spider (large, but not poisonous.) You will also very likely see geckos and possibly hear wild pigs in the jungle at night. Again, neither of those is dangerous. We do see a couple of centipedes a year, and their bite is painful, so make sure you check that your closed-toe footwear is uninhabited before putting it on. All of that being said, we can guarantee that the place is super clean, and you certainly don't have to worry about being infested! And the other comforting news -- no snakes in Hawaii!

There is a 32' flat panel TV in the master bedroom, with a combo DVD/VCR player. You will enjoy free wireless broadband internet access throughout the house.

Feel free to enjoy the air hockey table and elliptical machine in the garage, as well as the boogie boards, beach chairs, tennis rackets and other play equipment.

NOTE: This is an extremely quiet street in an older established neighborhood, filled with mostly elderly people who have owned their homes for 30-40 years. Our vacation rental is also a very quiet one. It is imperative that we have our guests' cooperation in keeping it peaceful. If you are someone who wants to be loud, have more than a few drinks, party or let loose in any way, laugh and talk raucously (day or night, but especially at night), then this is not the rental place for you. You would be happier in and better suited to the Waikiki vibe. Our ability to host future guests, and the success of neighborhood vacation rentals in general, are dependent on the happiness and blessing of the neighbors.

This rental is also not suitable for children.

We can accommodate Japanese speaking guests as we both speak Japanese.
