Amazing hosts/location and had everything we needed plus some!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our host Yao was extremely accommodating and provided everything for our stay to be as comfortable as possible, even down to supplying us with tips on the local area and being available for anything we needed if the need arose - which we didn't want for anything as it turned out. The view here is amazing and the kayaks/SUPs awesome to be able to use whenever we wished! The studio apartment sized rental we had would be perfect for two people - we squeezed three in and were still comfortable. The available washer/dryer is a life saver and we were able to cook full meals for three pretty much everyday - which you may be tempted to do with the full sized fridge and stocked mini kitchen provided - but do plan on trying out some of the local eateries mapped out in Yao's advice booklet - she gives great tips on the local food and attractions - we were never disappointed ! Couldn't recommend this place and the host high enough! We are already planning our next trip back! Thank you Yao!!

Stunning views!

  • 5 of 5

Although we only stayed one night, Yao made us feel right at home, and was super accommodating for us and our daughter. We even got to use her kayak and snorkel gear during our short stay. Would definitely stay there again.

Beautiful location!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful location away from the business of the big city, but still close to everything you need. Great location for day trips or laying by the water! Loved it!

A slice of paradise

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for five days in September and loved the place. It is situated on a shallow bay that is perfect for fishing, kayaking and snorkeling. The property is immaculate and is well equipped with everything you need to enjoy your stay - kayak, snorkeling gear, SUP, surfboard, life vests, fishing gear and more. The property is located in a quiet area off the beaten path but just a short drive to the North Shore. Yao was wonderful and a breeze to work with. I am so glad to have found this place for our stay.

Absolute perfection

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I went on a girls trip to Oahu. I used to live there so I avoid staying in the city. Yao's place sits right on Kaneohe Bay and it was such a little slice of heaven! Loved waking up to the amazing views it had to offer. Yao even heard us pull into the driveway and greeted us before we were even out of the car. She is such a kind, generous woman with a beautiful soul. She just wants to share the beauty of her home with everyone. Within ten minutes of being there we already threw on our swim suits and took the kayak out on the bay. Yao has tons of toys for you to play with and even has a place for you to do laundry! This will be the only place I ever stay when visiting Oahu from now on!

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful visit at this condo! It was accurately described and we had more than everything we needed. My husband was worried about not having air conditioning, but he slept very well with the fans provided. Don't plan to be able to walk to any restaurants, but there are a lot of good options within short driving distance. The paddle boards were awesome, we went snorkeling everyday and saw many sea turtles and other marine life. This is a great find and if we're back in Oahu we'd stay again!
