About the Property
4 bedroom 2 bath: Hilltop privacy, low-traffic, + easy access to Kailua beaches
You can sit on the front deck and gaze at Coconut Island, reading about its fascinating history--not only was it said to have been used for shots of 'Gilligan's Island,' but it once hosted presidents, actors and royalty, and WW II Navy flyers 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, electric kettle, crock pot, 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 (22 minutes away). Kaneohe town (and Windward Mall) is about 12 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 -- the reward is the view! Driveway is not suitable for trucks, and we recommend cars and SUVS over vans.
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)
