'Island style' living, in this spacious renovated custom home surrounded by beautiful

tropical vegetation and gorgeous sunrise views over Kaneohe Bay and Chinaman's Hat Island.

This private country retreat is comfortably furnished with contemporary furniture and

accented with artful Indonesian elements. The unique interior consists of a spacious sunken living room with open beamed ceilings and Brazilian Cherry hardwood floors thru-out, dining area with custom ‘koa’ counter bar, fireplace with ‘koa’ mantel and fully equipped gourmet kitchen with Viking appliances and island range. There are two bedrooms with queen beds. One has A/C. The master having access to the wrap around lanai/deck with lovely water and mountain views and the second bedroom doubles as an office with exotic wood desk. And, if needed, the living room sofa makes into a comfortable queen size bed with a folding screen for privacy. The master bathroom is accented with glass tiles, exotic wenge double sink vanity, and soaking tub with modern shower fixtures. The large open lawn leads to the beautiful coconut palm lined shoreline, approx. 100 feet from the house. And the upper end of property has fruit trees…mango, avocado, fig, citrus, lychee, papaya and Surinam cherry. There’s a nice swimming beach only 3 miles north at the Kualoa Beach Park, across from the Kualoa Ranch. Another attraction is the Polynesian Cultural Center which is 20 min. north from the property.

This convenient, yet country location is approx. 40 minutes from Honolulu (southeast) and the North Shore (north). And there’s a shopping center only 10 minutes in Kaneohe (south), as well as, 20 minutes to Kailua (south).

Come experience this most unique and private island retreat, like no other.

                                                              Beautiful Getaway

                                                              HappyWandererSpartanburg, SC

                                                              This house is amazing! My husband and I could not get over the view and all of our friends and family thought the pics we would send were straight from a postcard! This house did not disappoint one bit!

                                                              Great size for a couple honeymooning but would also be good for a family of four getaway with the 2 beds/2 baths. We were initially concerned about there being no AC but this was solved with the fans provided and occasionally leaving the sliding doors open with the screens closed to keep bugs out. The wind on this side of the island was wonderful and kept us plenty cool.

                                                              The amenities (gourmet kitchen, wifi/cable, and laundry) made this a great getaway. We hardly wanted to leave the house! Would totally recommend and have already began discussing when we can come back!

                                                              Gorgeous home in a relaxing location

                                                              Holly S.

                                                              This rental home was absolutely perfect for our 10 day visit to Oahu. The house's layout was comfortable enough for everyone to hang out and the kitchen has modern appliances and all the pans / dishware we could have needed. But my two favorite parts of this location were related to the outside -- all the sliding doors / porch space, and the short walk to the shoreline meant that we had amazing sunrise views every morning and could enjoy the wonderful weather throughout our stay. The main stores (grocery stores, mall) were only a short 5 mile drive away, and being so close to so many of the attractions / views we were interested in was perfect. Dian provided detailed instructions for our arrival and was very responsive to any questions we had along the way. I would stay here again in an instant!!

                                                              So glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay in beautiful Waikane! Appreciated your kind care and cleanliness of the house. Hope you can return some day!


                                                              Exceeded my expectations

                                                              This house is absolutely gorgeous and you will not be disappointed one bit. My favorite was sitting on the lanai every morning, drinking my coffee and watching the breathtaking sunrise. During our stay I had a couple questions for Dian and she was very quick with her responses. The only thing that would have been nice would be to have a few chairs down by the water to sit on.

                                                              The beds were very comfortable and there were plenty of extra pillows, blankets and bath towels. We bought a few fire logs at the store and actually had a fire a couple of the nights we were there. The house is located off the main road so you can’t hear cars and although there are houses on either side we didn’t hear anyone. It’s a very quiet and private space which is exactly what we were looking for.

                                                              A fabulous place!

                                                              Fun in the sun!

                                                              House and nice and comfortable! Cool breeze coming off the water was invigorating.

                                                              Perfect week!
