Welcome to our studio in Kahalu'u. This is a new construction completed January of 2014 with many high-end finishes including: Full kitchen with granite countertops, ice-maker fridge, tall 9' ceilings, bullnose corners, beautiful mahogany trim, luxurious stained concrete floors, travertine tile bathroom with walk-in travertine and granite shower. This Studio has partial ocean views and access to the ocean for crabbing or kayaking and snorkeling in the bay. Up the road is better for hanging out on the beach. Another highlight of this Studio is the two big patio doors look out over a 50' by 100' lawn great for kids to play on.

We are a young family doing our best to create a paradise here in Hawaii. I work for a local bank and my wife is a personal chef and a mom. We feel very lucky to live at this home in Kahalu'u in Hawaii.
Hillary purchased this Studio in 2013
Why Hillary chose Waikane
The tropical climate takes it's toll on homes in Hawaii. Even a home that is a few years old can appear much older here. This home is brand new and doesn't have any of the issues associated with older homes. This home also has the advantage of having a contemporary floor plan, recessed lighting, tall ceilings, and other modern home features.
What makes this Studio unique
Proximity to the ocean, the north shore, Kailua, Kualoa Ranch, the Polynesian Cultural Center are all great benefits. The large yard and new construction with contemporary feel are also big benefits.

Short and Sweet
The cottage is clean with comfortable furnishings. There were only two of us staying but it can easily accommodate at least four more. It’s just steps to the ocean but the unit is not oceanfront and it is not a beach meant for swimming. However It’s a great place to watch the sunrise. The unit is close to the main road and can be noisy at times. The owner lives in the upper unit and you can occasionally hear them walking. Our stay was short but this unit met our needs perfectly. It’s a short drive to Kaneohe town for shopping and dining and perfect for traveling to the North Shore.
Beautiful,private and relaxing!
So happy we found this property! It is perfect for a small group or family. Hilary and her husband were very kind and resourceful. Even though we were directly underneath their home,we had a lot of privacy. I would defiantly consider staying here again if ever in the area. Mahalo!
We'd stay here again!
This was our first time staying at a VRBO on Oahu. Hillary and Shad couldn't have been more gracious. The cottage walks out onto a patio that leads to a gorgeous lawn and to the ocean. We had access to loads of water flotation devices for kids and adults. There are also kayaks available that are shared between a couple of different homes. The cottage was clean, the kitchen was well stocked and it's location is perfect. We love to visit the beach at sunrise. We had no problem getting to Lanikai, Kailua or Waimea by sunrise. Great place, wonderful hosts. We'd stay there again!
Lovely and spotless
We spent a couple of nights here for a wedding at Kualoa Ranch and this was ideally located. The cottage is clean, with an open floor plan, perfect for families. It's a lower floor unit, situated under a home. The first night we were there, someone was up all night long, walking and perhaps moving furniture. The second night was silent except for road noise. I assume the first night was an unfortunate aberration. If you find yourself in need of a place to stay outside of Waikiki, this is a good and reasonably priced option.
Nice, clean and friendly
Hilary was helpful and easy going.
Great place away from it all, but close enough to get to it all.
Wonderful hosts who accommodated a last minute booking. Very comfortable with lots of room.
Kahalu'u is quiet, beautiful and convenient to Honolulu and the North Shore. It is especially close to: Chinaman's Hat (our favorite island to kayak to), Kualoa Ranch (very popular tourist attraction) and endless great beaches. Our favorite kid-friendly beach park is Kahana Bay. It is about eight miles away toward the North Shore. Our favorite bon fire area is in Ka'a'Awa about seven miles away. Ka'a'Awa is also a great area for snorkeling. Driving the other direction, SouthEast to Kaneohe and Kailua, will give you more options for restaurants. Hale'iwa Joe's in Kaneohe is our favorite restaurant. Driving past Kaneohe to Kailua you are rewarded with very beautiful, very popular beaches. Kailua is about 12 miles away.
The nearest grocery store is three miles away. Next to the grocery store are a few small restaurants and a large movie theater. Across the street is Valley of the Temples. Not only is it free, but it's one of the most beautiful places on Oahu. There is a very picturesque Buddhist Temple there with an impressive koi pond complete with small turtles and stunning black geese.
