                          This private retreat is located on the north end of Kaneohe Bay, about 7 miles north of Kaneohe, in an exclusive area known as Waikane-'Water of the Gods' ...on the Windward side of Oahu. Watch the sun rise over the Bay and Chinaman's Hat, a small island off the shore. Just a few miles north is the beautiful Kualoa Beach Park for swimming and hiking, and Kualoa Ranch where there's horseback riding and special events. Kailua Beach and Lanikai are approx. 25 minutes south; NorthShore and Waimea Bay are approx. 40 minutes north; Honolulu is about 20 minutes southwest.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 1987

                          About the owner: For many years I have worked as an artist/sculptor...designing elements for the home. And I have managed property rentals for over 25 years. We spend a few weeks each year enjoying our island retreat and getting recharged.

                          Why the Owner Chose Kaneohe:
                          We looked for a special location for over 4 years until 1987... when we finally found our perfect island retreat. We built a custom pole house(s) and appointed it with Indonesian/Asian furnishings from our travels and extensive tropical landscaping from local farmers. For years we have shared the guest house with travellers from all over the world...with many rave reviews.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                          This is a very unique, exclusive area...located about 10 minutes north of Kaneohe, in an area called Waikane which means 'Water of the Gods'. It's private; has a serene country feel embellished with gorgeous tropical vegetation & fruit trees. Being embraced by the Koolau Mountains and enchanting views of Kaneohe Bay...this property is like no other. Great location...10 minutes to Kaneohe town; 20 minutes to Honolulu & Kailua; 40 minutes to the NorthShore. And close to beautiful beaches all along the coast.
