Year Purchased: 2000
About the owner: We enjoy and have lived in this home since 2000 and the previous 20 years in our home just 2 doors away. We have found it to be very convenient to Kailua & Kaneohe towns, Honolulu, the Honolulu Airport as well as Kailua Beach.
We have had an advertising business since 1972 and I am a watercolor painter as well.
My husband grew up on Oahu and enjoys being able to share his local knowledge of the islands with our guests.
Sailing in Kaneohe Bay is a passion of ours and we are out on the bay every weekend either sailing in Kaneohe Bay, off-shore, between the islands and around oahu.
Why the Owner Chose Kailua: We sold our home on the bay in 2000 after the last of our children left home and found this property to be perfect for our needs.
It provides a separate 'Ohana' rental with the comforts of a 'home away from home' for returning families, visiting family here as well as other visitors to the islands.
Temporary work bring some of our guests here to stay with us, others are military guests who need temporary housing and other visitors are building lifelong memories of their Hawaiian holiday.
Our cottage also serves as extra space for our own returning family as well. They enjoy having their own space. This is also true of other returning families, many who return each year.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: We are happy to have this space on our property for our guests and family to stay.
The enclosed patio and garden provides the space and privacy for your outdoor enjoyment and bbqs.
It is conveniently located to Kailua Beach and the round-the-island route for exploring and enjoying our beautiful islands with its numerous beaches.
H-1 & H-3 provide access close by for a fast route to Honolulu, Pearl Harbor or the Honolulu Airport.
Some of our guests prefer not to drive so air conditioned bus service & stops are just a few doors away and will get you most anywhere or all the way around the island of Oahu. The Polynesian Cultural Center, Pearl Harbor, Sea Life Park and Hanauma Bay are all accessible by bus, although transfers may be necessary.
We have found most of our guests need internet access while visiting so beginning May 2011, we are adding a high speed internet connection.
We have parking right in front of the cottage at no additional cost. Some guests have remarked that the hotels in Waikiki charge $20/day to park your car,
whether or not it is used.
Children are welcome and the enclosed private patio and the additional electric remote gate across the property, keeps them from getting to the Bay Drive.
