Oahu Paradise

  • 5 of 5

The location was convenient to everything and Yao was an incredible host going above and beyond! It was nice to have access to all the amenities Yao provided. We truly got to focus on just enjoying our time and every convenience was taken care of. I would definitely stay here again!

We enjoyed our stay at this property. Room is small, since we spent our time outdoor, it worked fine. the property is well maintained, kitchen well equipped. It was a pleasure to have breakfast and dinner on the lanai, the view is breathtaking. Property is equipped with snorkeling equipment, kayak and paddle board, they were greatly appreciated, (laundry too). We enjoyed canoeing to the sand bar, snorkeling.

Located on Kane'ohe Bay, it is very quiet, but so close to north shore, Honolulu...

Thank you Yao waiting for us when we arrived late, thank you for your time and advises, well appreciated, you are a gracious host. Just hope to be back soon

Beautiful view and great hosts as advertised

  • 5 of 5

Sitting out on the porch looking out over the water was beautiful. We were able to use the tandem kayak they provided to kayak right off the backyard out to the famous Kaneohe sand bar. We even saw some sea turtles along the way. Only small down side is that it can get hot in the room. There were a few fans provided thankfully and they were definitely needed.

Just what we were hoping for and more!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at this VRBO property. Yao and Paul were both very welcoming people and helped us quickly get acquainted with the property and the area. We found their recommendations on places to eat at or go see were very helpful. We stayed in the center, lower unit and were quite comfortable there. We greatly appreciated all of the extras like snorkel gear, kayak, paddleboard, washer/dryer, etc. The only problem was that it was very difficult to leave that view. We ended up eating almost all of our breakfasts and dinners at the outside table since the view was so much better than most of the restaurants. The Fresh Catch restaurant nearby had such great takeout that we went there three times to get dinner to bring back. We were surprised how good the reef was for snorkeling right out in front of the property. Unfortunately, we never made it out to the sandbar with the kayak but maybe on a future visit. Highly recommended!

Great view, relaxing location

  • 5 of 5

A great place on the water front in a quiet bay with awesome views. Yao and Paul provide everything you will need and more. They have a kayak, paddle board, water shoes, snorkeling gear available, let the water adventure begin. Great location to spend time on the windward side and south Shore of the island.

Perfect oceanfront getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had such a good time at Yao's VRBO. It is far enough away from the hustle and bustle of Waikiki that you can relax and yet close to all the essential amenities. The view was everything you see in the photos. Being able to walk out our door, then through the shallow water to the reef made snorkelling very convenient. The stand up paddle board and kayak were lots of fun. We will definitely be back!!!
