Overview

About the property

3 bed/3 bath on Kaneohe Bay, sleeps 8 (>6 pax, there is a $35 charge/ea/night)

Welcome to your home away from home on the Eastern shore of O'ahu... Kaneohe Bay Hale. This oceanfront home was remodeled with a comfortable open concept kitchen, living area and covered lanai on the main floor, giving this home a natural island feel. The main floor has one full bathroom inside and one half bathroom accessed from the outside near the convenient outdoor shower. Upstairs has a small living area, three bedrooms, and two bathrooms.

High-end finishes like slate rock flooring, solid surface counter tops, and recessed lighting make the home feel more modern without losing its island charm. A large screen door opens to a spacious covered lanai with a barbecue and a great lawn that ends at a small retaining wall at the ocean's edge. When the tide is low you can venture down to the shore where small crabs hide under rocks and picturesque fisherman's boats sit mostly forgotten. Tall trees provide back yard privacy as you enjoy a meal on the large covered lanai(12'x50'), or inside looking out across Kaneohe Bay to Mokapu Peninsula. Take the two kayaks out onto the bay for some morning exercise and to see the beautiful expansive views of the Ko'olau mountain range from the ocean.

Parking: There is one covered parking spot available and room for at least 10 more cars in the private, secure driveway. For special events and with careful planning 30+ cars can be accommodated.

Sleeping: Upstairs there are four beds and one day bed, creating accommodations for up to 8-10 guests (for guests with more than 6pax, there will be an additional fee per head count). The largest bedroom has a queen and a full bed. The master bedrooms has a queen bed and the mauka bedroom has a queen size bed. The small upstairs living area contains a queen sized day bed. If you need even more space, 2 to 5 guests can be accommodated in the 'Kahaluu Cottage' vacation rental studio that is located across the yard (VRBO# 503307).

Special Events: For an additional fee the 4000 sq ft front lawn can accomodate events for up to 125 guests. $1000 for fewer than 50 guests, 50-80 people for an $1500 fee and events for 80-125 people may be held for an additional $1850.00 fee. The private back yard right on Kaneohe Bay, large front yard, ample parking, easy access for large delivery trucks, availability of a separate, private studio, and an easy to find location on Kamehameha Highway make this an ideal special event location. Wedding parties, birthdays, and family reunions are examples of events that would work well here. *All tent rentals must be booked through Pacific Party Rentals and porta potties are required for events over 50.

Beach: Does this property have a beach? Not really. When the tide is high, the ocean comes all the way up to the lawn. When the tide is low there is enough room to venture down onto the dark silty shore. Can I get in the water? Yes - but it is shallow and rocky and not ideal for swimming. The best way to enjoy the ocean at the house is on a kayak. We have a single seater and a two seater available for you to use. Going out on the Kayaks is fun and interesting and the views are stunning. Is it safe? Generally yes, there are never waves and it is shallow for at least 100 yards. Is it safe for all ages? Children and adults should watch out for large rocks. Can I snorkel here? Yes, If you take the kayaks out there are places to snorkel in the bay. Where is the closest sandy beach? Two miles away at Kualoa Beach Park is the closest sandy beach.

What makes this property great: 1) Because this home has a nice green lawn right up to the water’s edge, you can enjoy the ocean without dealing with the fun, but messy sand. This home is a great “home base”. Guests travel all over the island to discover different beaches and come home, clean up, and can still enjoy the beautiful ocean. 2) Events: this really is a nice spot to hold an event. Please see the special events section for all the great benefits. 3) Large groups can rent both the Kahaluu Canoe House and Kahaluu Cottage for a together-but-separate sleeping arrangement.

About Pilialoha Miller

We are a local married couple from Kaneohe. We love the ocean and the activities that Kaneohe Bay allows us to enjoy. We take great pride in our work and have a deep sense of responsibility to not only nuture but share what we have as we set an example for our children.

Why Pilialoha Miller chose Waikane

This side of the island is simply, "God's Country". We have grown up here in Kahalu'u with all of our family and friends and could not imagine living anywhere else. The people are friendly, the serenity is amazing, and being Bayfront is incomparable. The location allows you to get away from the hustle of the city but keeps you close enough to commute quickly to everything you need or anywhere on the island you want to go.

What makes this house unique

Please see the special events section for all the great benefits. 3) Large groups can rent both the Kahaluu Canoe House and Kahaluu Cottage for a together-but-separate sleeping arrangement. 4) Living next door is Chef Hill – Hillary is a personal chef, cooking instructor, diet coach, sushi chef, artisan baker, pastry chef, and caterer. She’s also very friendly and well loved by all who meet her. Ask to see a menu. 5) Proximity to the North Shore, Kailua, Kualoa Ranch, and the Polynesian Cultural Center are also great benefits.

Our families are born and raised in the Kaneohe Bay area, so when you decide to stay at the Kaneohe Bay Hale, we will be happy to guide you on how to explore this island the way only a "kama'aina" (local) could.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This was our 1st time visiting Hawaii. My husband and I brought our two sons, ages 22 and 17 to celebrate their graduations.

After a rocky start thanks to a 15-hour flight delay this house was everything we needed for a perfect week in Paradise!!

The communication with the owner was quick and personal making us feel like welcomed guests! The attention to detail, cleanliness, extra amenities and location we're all much more then we had ever dreamed of.

There were comfortable beds throughout the house, separate showers for everyone with ample hot water, and a View that was perfect for every sunrise!

The Neighbors are all extremely friendly just like everyone we encountered on the island!

It is a perfect location to be away from all of the tourists and yet a beautiful and quick drive to anything you want to do.

We suggest the kayak and snorkle tour from Holokai kayak and snorkel Adventures located on the Bay less than 5 minutes from the house, as well as a full day at the Polynesian Cultural Center which is a short drive up the road!

Everything you need from ice chest, sunscreen, or beach chairs & towels, it's on hand at this home!!

We can't thank you enough having a and we look forward to returning soon!

We fell in love with Hawaii while in this house!

  • 5 of 5

Our family absolutely loved this house. The sound of the ocean waves crashing and the ocean breeze that comes thru the windows at night were just amazing. The house is extremely spacious with lots of room to move around. We cooked several meals at the house in the beautiful kitchen. Pilialoha was very friendly and a blessing to work with. We would definitely stay here again....we had a great experience.

Beautiful morning view

  • 3 of 5

The house was spacious and lovely waking up to the sunrise every morning. The only down side to it was the cleanliness of the cookware, a couple of beds, and pillows. One bed sheet cover had mold on it while another bed had hair that wasn’t ours. The pillow also had mold. My guess is that when the sheets and pillows were washed, they weren’t fully dried and was stored in a closed container. A few pillows smell like people had thrown up on. I brought this to the attention of the owner. She said they are throwing those away. Not to mention my sister found a gecko in her bedroom. She freaked out. My dad had to come and get it. We were told that geckos are good luck. Other than that the owners were pleasant to work with.

Beautiful home, beautiful stay.

  • 4 of 5

The house feels bigger than the advertised square footage because of the ample living space around the house. We had family dropping by off and on. They were able to easily park and turn around in front of the house. There was plenty of seating on the lanai and the hammock was tried by all but a few. The amenities were very nice and we felt at home very quickly. With 3 full bathrooms and a half outside, no one was left dancing in the hallway although we had 2 families there. It was so nice sleeping with the windows open and letting the breeze blow thru. Plenty of fresh air. I would definitely enjoy staying here again--away from the crush of town and so very relaxing.

We did not use the kayaks that were provided although the property is right on the water. The water was pretty choppy and we were busy with family. That is definitely a perk that we just didn't have time to utilize.
