About the Property
3+ Bedrooms, 2.5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 5
Just 5 minutes to Kaneohe town, Kailua town and MCBH marine base, and also to all three freeways going into Honolulu, this is the ideal base from which to explore the island. Honolulu is an easy 20-25 minute drive. So you will be very centrally and conveniently located, but also get to experience the best of both worlds -- you are at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac, nestled up against a lush, tropical jungle, yet so close to amenities and world-class beaches. Wake up to morning birdsong from this secluded haven.
This is a 3+ bedroom, 2.5 bath 1,600 square feet house. The living area offers a full screen view of the bay, ocean and mountains, and a glass sliding door opens onto the covered lanai. Brand new kitchen and downstairs bathroom renovation, and beautiful luxury vinyl plank flooring installed throughout home -- just completed in January 2016.
All rooms have lots of jalousie (louvre) windows letting in abundant light and welcoming breeze.
There are three bedrooms on the main second level of the house:
The master bedroom is tucked away in the back corner of the house, surrounded by the lush jungle, with wrap around jalousie windows that allow you to feel at one with nature. Sleep super comfortably on the luxurious Tempur Pedic king mattress with Tempur Pedic pillows, on a brand new platform bed. There is a half-bath ensuite off the master bedroom.
The second bedroom bedroom has a brand new queen memory foam mattress, with views to the bay and mountains, and also to the jungle on the side of the house. The room also has a kids' study desk.
The third bedroom has a brand new memory foam single bed with storage headboard, and includes a glass top computer desk and office chair. Super views to the bay, ocean and mountains.
The main full bathroom is off the hallway, opposite the second bedroom.
The main living area is an open-plan layout, with the kitchen, dining and living rooms all facing the spectacular views. The lanai (deck) off the living room extends the living area and brings the magnificent expanse and beauty of the outdoors inside. Whether preparing a meal, enjoying your food, lounging on the sofa, or relaxing on the lanai, you will be mesmerized by the ever-changing vista.
You will love being in the brand newly renovated kitchen, with its quartz countertops, new cabinets, new stainless steel appliances, and recessed and under cabinet lighting. From the kitchen, access the laundry room available for your convenience. (This laundry hallway area is also utilized by our long-term resident in the studio cottage at the rear of the house.)
Downstairs on the lower level is the main front door entrance, a family room/den which can be an additional bedroom, plus a gorgeous new full bathroom with shower, featuring ceramic tile, new vanity with quartz countertop and new fixtures. The family room/den offers the comforts of an Ikea sectional couch which also pulls out into a very comfortable double bed -- much more comfortable than a typical pull-out spring sofa bed. Please note that the den is open to the front entrance and there is a room divider separating the two (no closable door).
There is a new 40" flat panel LED TV in the master bedroom, with a combo DVD/VCR player. You will enjoy wireless broadband internet access throughout the house.
No two days, rainbows or cloud formations are the same. Our position at the top of the hill and end of the cul-de-sac gives you an obstructed, elevated view straight out to the natural wonder of the scenic beauty surrounding us. And being situated on the windward (northeast) side of the island, we are blessed with near-constant "trade winds" which provide a natural cooling breeze that keeps the tropical warmth just perfect.
There is an open 2-car garage attached to the house. You have use of 1 garage space, as well as additional parking on the asphalt driveway in front of the open garage. Feel free to use the boogie boards, beach chairs, snorkeling equipment, tennis rackets.
Sorry, no pets and no smoking allowed.
We are fortunate to have an excellent permanent long-term renter in the studio cottage at the rear of the property. He is a very quiet resident who teaches at a special needs high school and helps take care of the property. The cottage is a completely self-contained unit with no shared walls. The laundry hallway in between the two is shared. So the two units have good privacy separation. The cottage resident parks one vehicle on the flat concrete driveway adjacent to the garage.
We can accommodate Japanese speaking guests as we both speak Japanese. 日本語でもどうぞ。

Just five minutes' drive to stunning Kailua Beach, you will love every minute you spend in this bright, comfortable 2+ bedroom home. The breathtaking views of the ocean and Kaneohe Bay, Coconut Island, and the magnificent Ko'olau Mountains will make it hard to leave the house. (We can honestly attest to the fact that the pictures, no matter how good, cannot do justice to the views!)
You will be very centrally and conveniently located, but also get to experience the best of both worlds -- you are at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac, nestled up against a lush, tropical jungle. Wake up to morning birdsong from this secluded haven. Zero traffic noise here.
Fabulous central location 2 blocks from Kaneohe Bay Drive and city bus stop. Seven minutes to Kailua beach. Easy access to H-3, Likelike and Pali Highways just 2-5 minutes' drive away. Five minutes from grocery stores, restaurants and all the amenities you need.
About the owner: We are a family of four who love to share our home and this incredible island while we are traveling. We treasure our travels, experiencing other cultures, singing and music, good food and meeting people from around the world. Our biggest thrill is being in beautiful nature, which Oahu offers in abundance.
Why the Owner Chose Kaneohe, HI, USA:
We were immediately drawn to the unique way in which this home is tucked into the top of a small, quiet, private cul-de-sac, nestled up against the jungle, with a breathtaking view of the mountains, ocean and bay, while being in the most convenient, central location with easy access to anywhere on the island.
