Our place is the perfect base to explore the island - perfect location to do day trips anywhere on Oahu.
We are close to the beach (20 minute drive) & a quick 25 minute drive from Honolulu (35 from Waikiki). We have stellar views that will take your breath away. We are located in a prime spot with access to 3 major freeways: any tourist site on the island is a 5 - 60 minute drive from us. The perfect base to explore everything Oahu has to offer!
Peace and quiet in a beautiful setting, yet only minutes away from the hustle and bustle of it all! We live in a quiet neighborhood in Kaneohe with beautiful views from the rooms and lanai of the Ko'olau mountain range (Stairway to Heaven trail).
Times Supermarket few blocks away, other major supermarkets a quick 5 minute drive. Tons of mom and pop restaurants within a few miles of our home. On Wednesdays and Sundays Windward Mall has a large farmer's market - which is only a 5 minute drive away.
We highly recommend you rent a car to explore the island with. Although we are near bus stops - the buses are slow and you will enjoy your holiday more with a car.
Plenty of closet space, a queen bed, tv and dvd player in the room with tons of dvds to choose from, with access to washer and dryer, shared kitchen, and shared bathroom. We provide beach chairs, snorkel masks, beach towels, bath towels, shampoo/conditioner, and ice chests. Enjoy the trade wind breezes and ceiling fans.
Lounge on the large lanai or enjoy your morning coffee overlooking the beautiful Hawaiian mountains with a glimpse of Kaneohe Bay.
It is a 3 bedroom house - we with our Boston Terrier reside in the house you will be guesting at.
**We have two spare rooms in our home. We rent both out or you can rent one or the other depending on availability. Please check out the other listings to see if they better meet your needs - click the link below. Mahalo!
There is one bathroom with a shower that is shared by the house. There is a shared washer and dryer on the property, guests will have access to the lanai, kitchen, shared bathroom, and living room. There is a parking spot on site. There are two flights of stairs up to the house.
We have an adorable Boston Terrier who loves to cuddle and get attention. She may jump on you - just tell her no. Also please keep your doors closed otherwise you'll find her riffling through your trash-bin or curled up in your bed.

We live in the house - so we will bump into each other from time to time. We are more than happy to give any sightseeing advice or answer any questions. We work from home so we will be there quite a bit, but if for some reason we are not there please just shoot us a message and we will answer any of your questions.

We do have a stray bunny who lives on the property and it is quite the "gangsta" - he will not let you pet him, but he has no fear of cars. Please be careful if you drive up onto the property that you keep an eye out for him.
As this is the Windward side - there are random roosters and chickens who live in the neighborhood. If the noise bothers you (we recommend you close your windows) - we have ear plugs and a white noise machine.
This is an open air house on the jungle mountain side - you get the cool mountain breezes and temperatures however you also get the natural element and "wildlife" (bugs/lizards/chickens #hawaiiawildlife). The house does show signs of aging in a tropical setting - the house is over 40 years old in original condition (so you'll see the occasional rust stain etc). And there are bugs/lizards/mosquitos in the garden - we can't really do anything about them however we do get routine pest control on the inside of the house. That said - heavy rains, leaving food out, screen doors open - attracts a certain element aka ants/etc. Its a jungle - we do the best we can to avoid it but occasionally they come in for a visit :) (just let us know and we'll take care of it).
Please clean up after yourselves in all common areas. No shoes in the house (Hawaiian custom). Please rinse off feet before coming into the house after the beach. Please be quiet from 10pm-8am. No nudity in common areas. No drugs. Close screen doors (bugs) at all times. No vaping inside the house.
I'm a working professional who lives between Cali and Hawaii. Like the outdoors, traveling and experiencing new things.
