I'm a Navy wife, former flight attendant and mom. I fell in love with my husband and Hawaii on vacation years ago. We met on Oahu and married a few months later. I can't live without time in or on the water, family, friends, wine and music. We are an extremely active water family and spend most all our free time in or on the water. It's been a pleasure hosting and getting to know guests from all over the world. Many have become dear friends and repeat guests.
Katrina purchased this Cottage in 2014
Why Katrina chose Kaneohe
We fell in love with the mature fruit trees and native plants on this organic property. We currently grow: Papaya (Watermelon and Strawberry), Mango, Surinam Cherry, Mountain apple, Starfruit, Apple banana, Lilikoi (Passion fruit), Soursop and Noni. As we continue to cultivate the property we're adding native plants to encourage a healthier environment.
What makes this Cottage unique
Walking thru the gates into our lush tropical garden, you will hear the soothing sounds of running water and birds. We especially love the flowering plants and variations of greens! We strive to remain an organic property, both in maintaining the property and cleaning our cottage. We take pride in our exacting standards of cleaning and ensuring our guests have a wonderful stay:)

What a beautiful and comfortable place to call home! The apartment is in a great location and was very cute, clean and cozy! Katrina is a pleasure to work with and clearly takes pride and joy in what she does. We only wish we would have booked a longer stay. Will definitely be coming back when on Oahu!
Lovely cottage, very clean and just as pictured. Katrina was wonderful. The coffee and pineapple in our welcome basket were an amazing treat and very much appreciated. Beautiful, quiet little retreat with everything you need for a short or long stay in Oahu. Mahalo.
Tropical Hideaway Kaneohe
This is our first experience with VRBO rentals and was well pleased with our stay at Tropical Hideaway in Kaneohe. The owner, Katrina, was very helpful and thought of everything you might need while staying at her property. The cottage was very clean and she had maps and brochures of things to do in the area. we went to nearby Kailua beach and found it to be one of the best beaches we were ever on. Katrina had beach chairs, an umbrella, mats and even a small cooler for our use. She also provided coffee for our stay and some fruit from the trees in her yard. Everything in the kitchen was well labeled and easy to find. I don’t think she could have thought of anything else we might have needed during our stay. Absolutely loved the place and would definitely book through VRBO in the future.
Away from the crowds!
Because we choose to be away from the craziness of the city, this location was the best choice for us! It is close enough to get to Honolulu, but on the side of the island that is less populated. It is super close to Kailua and also easily accessible for a drive to the North Shore.
The accommodations were amazing and our hostess was kind and generous! I especially loved the treats we received upon arrival and the fresh fruit that was hanging on the door some mornings!
I highly recommend this location and hostess!
Clean, welcoming, we loved it!
This was our first experience in a VRBO and we were tentative in doing something outside our norm. We are happy we took the chance!
Katrina was extremely communicative prior to our stay, to ensure we had an easy entry to the suite and making herself available if we needed assistance. The suite was clean and very cute and comfortable. A nice gift basket was waiting for us and even had passion fruit left at our door upon returning from a day of paddling.
We enjoyed privacy in the suite and loved the easy access the location provided.
We will definitely be back!
