Just 5 minutes' drive to stunning Kailua Beach, you will love every minute you spend in this bright, newly renovated 2,700 square ft. 5-bedroom, 3.5-bathroom 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.
You will be very centrally and conveniently located, but also get to experience the best of both worlds -- you are at the top of the hill, the end of a quiet cul-de-sac, nestled up against a lush, tropical jungle. Indulge in this private, tranquil setting, feeling completely nestled in and surrounded by gorgeous trees and greenery, yet be so close to amenities and world-class beaches. Be truly at one with nature, the rustling breeze, and the refreshing rain, wake up to morning birdsong, and sink into the peaceful beauty of this tranquility.
The home offers 3 completely separate self-contained suite areas ("Master Suite" on 2nd floor, "Palm Suite" on 1st floor, and "Jungle Suite" at rear of house) plus 2 additional bedrooms. Ideal for multigenerational families and groups of work colleagues, or anyone needing separate private bedroom/bathroom areas. Beautiful new luxury vinyl plank flooring throughout the main house.
The main living area on 2nd floor is an open-plan layout, with the kitchen, dining and living rooms all facing the spectacular full-screen views of the bay, ocean and mountains. The covered 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 newly renovated kitchen, with its quartz countertops, new cabinets, new stainless steel appliances, and recessed and under cabinet lighting. The brand new dining table is a beautiful mango wood square table that seats 8, and is counter-height in order to maximize the ocean view!
MASTER SUITE (2nd Floor):
The "Master Suite" is surrounded by the lush jungle, with wrap around jalousie windows that allow you to feel at one with nature. Sleep super comfortably on the Tempur Pedic king mattress and Tempur Pedic pillows. Enjoy the 40" flat panel LED TV in the master bedroom, with Apple TV. There is a half-bath ensuite off the master bedroom.
4th Bedroom (Queen, 2nd Floor):
Queen size 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.
5th Bedroom (Single, 2nd Floor):
New memory foam single bed with storage headboard, and includes a glass top computer desk and office chair. Views to the bay, ocean and mountains.
Full Bathroom is off the hallway next to the three 2nd floor bedrooms.
PALM SUITE (1st Floor)
The "Palm Suite" looks out onto the beautiful Hawaiian Areca Palms, and sports a gorgeous new full bathroom with shower, featuring ceramic tile, new vanity with quartz countertop and new fixtures. The "Palm Suite" 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 room is open to the front entrance and there is a folding partition, but no door separating the bedroom area from the front entrance.
JUNGLE SUITE (Rear of home):
Newly renovated, private 500 sq. ft. self-contained studio "Jungle Suite" nestled into lush jungle setting. Beautiful ceramic tile floor throughout, brand new kitchen cabinets, granite countertops, under cabinet lighting, new full-size fridge, new bathroom fixtures!
In the "Jungle Suite" you'll find the home's second kitchen, fully equipped with a new fridge, induction hot plate, coffee maker, microwave, dishware, and cooking and eating utensils. The bathroom has a huge walk-in tiled shower, new fixtures, and entrance door to the outside.
The "Jungle Suite" also includes a very comfortable queen size bed. Please note that this is a very good quality mattress, but it is a little on the soft side. From the mahogany high-top dining table, enjoy the jungle view as you dine. The "Jungle Suite" has a TV and private wrap-around lanai (porch) on 2 sides. You get a peek of gorgeous Kaneohe Bay from the lanai. Enjoy the private, lush back yard with the jungle canopy towering above, for your meals, yoga, or just staring at the moon and stars. It is so quiet back here that you will not hear any traffic noise or urban clamor.
The laundry hallway separates the main house kitchen and the rear "Jungle Suite", which is completely separated from the front part of the house, with no shared walls.
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 driveway. Feel free to use the boogie boards, beach chairs, snorkeling equipment, tennis rackets.
VERY IMPORTANT: absolutely no pets, no smoking, no unauthorized guests. While this home accommodates up to 8 guests, it is essential that our guests are quiet and respectful of the neighbors. Noise, partying and raucous behavior of any kind are strictly prohibited, and we do not permit any gatherings, parties or events of any kind.
We can accommodate Japanese speaking guests as we both speak Japanese. 日本語でもどうぞ。
NOTE: This listing has been newly updated (August 2017) to reflect the entire property, which includes the attached "Jungle Suite", which in the past was rented to a long-term resident. Reviews mentioning another renter on the property in the rear unit reflects old information.
