Overview

Kaneohe House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, sleeps max of 8

From this private, 2 story hilltop home located on the Kailua end of Kaneohe above Kaneohe Bay (it's an easy 6 minute drive to Kailua town and beach, a few minutes more to Lanikai beach, and less than 10 minutes to Kaneohe town), you'll have PANORAMIC POSTCARD VIEWS from nearly every room -- sailboats on the bay (the weekly races provide a colorful show of spinnakers), the sandbar in the distance (location of scenes in the movie '50 First Dates'), and the Koolau mountains as the backdrop.

You can sit on the front deck and gaze at Coconut Island, reading about its fascinating history--not only was it used for shots of 'Gilligan's Island,' but it once hosted presidents, actors and royalty, and military service members on R and R, and now serves as an important marine research facility. Or, you can watch for visiting yachts or other vessels -- with the filming of 'Pirates of the Caribbean 4' in the bay, the view from the deck included a pirate ship!

The home is cooled by HILLTOP BREEZES and ceiling fans and is fully furnished with all linens and full kitchen amenities, plus extra cooking items (blender, rice cooker, coffee grinder, electric kettle, crockpot, mini food chopper, waffle iron, Foreman grill, spices). We also provide body boards, snorkeling gear, beach towels, coolers, beach umbrella, sand toys, and beach chairs.

There is 1 bedroom downstairs, plus a tub and shower bathroom; there are 3 bedrooms upstairs, plus a shower-only bathroom. Toilet is separate from the sink/shower, and has its own door off the hallway.

Also included: wireless internet access, flat screen televisions, a full-size foosball table, books and board games. To help with your choice of activities, we provide brochures, maps and local menus. The indoor dining table accommodates six; there are also 2 counter chairs and outdoor chairs plus table on the lanai.

In 6 minutes you can drive to world-renown KAILUA BEACH, where, in addition to swimming, you can enjoy activities like body boarding, surfing, kayaking, windsurfing, and kite-boarding. A few minutes beyond Kailua beach is LANIKAI BEACH, also voted as one of the country's best. There are several nearby golf courses, both public and private (including Koolau, one of the country's most challenging and most beautiful).

MILITARY guests will appreciate the short 5 minute drive to the Kaneohe Marine Base and its commissary, exchange, and private beach.

For 'big city' action, you can get to HONOLULU or WAIKIKI in about 25 minutes, or you can access the nearby H-3 onramp to head toward Pearl Harbor, the Aloha Stadium swap meet, or the airport (about 23 minutes away). Kaneohe town (home of Windward Mall) is about 10 minutes away. Continue past Kaneohe and you'll be on a scenic drive to Kualoa Beach Park, or beyond to the north shore and its famous beaches. Or, if you prefer to just relax, you can sit on the lanai with a good book and spend your day enjoying the view.

We look forward to welcoming you to our hale with a basket of Hawaiian coffee and local treats. Don't forget your camera!

Special Note: ***The paved driveway up to the house is steep -- not suitable for trucks. (Cars and SUVS are recommended). The reward is the view!

Another special note ** While we want you to enjoy the house and its decks and views, we do request that you show aloha to our neighbors on the street below by refraining from loud, late partying on the decks at night**

(Please note: We don't allow smoking or pets in the house)

Spectacular View

  • 5 of 5

We had 5 adults and 3 teenagers. Bill and Joyce were so accommodating! They set up the beds perfectly for us. From the moment we walked onto the porch and took in the view, we knew it was going to be the perfect vacation. The peacefulness of the neighborhood allowed us to easily relax. We had all been to Hawaii more than 10 times and this visit was by far the most enjoyable.

We woke up in the morning, had everything we needed to make breakfast and enjoyed it outside on the porch. Then, we went to take in all that Oahu has to offer (Bill and Joyce had a handy folder with suggestions) and came home to have a full kitchen to prepare dinner and eat outside with the view, fresh air and calm of Kaneohe. We even had access to a large barbeque that we could use while taking in the view with a cold bottle of beer. Safeway was less than 5 minutes away for our groceries.

The property also had a lot of the items that are too bulky to pack, but are critical for enjoying the water in Hawaii (boogie boards, beach chairs, umbrellas, beach towels, etc.)

We will definitely try to get this place again for our next visit to Oahu.

Perfect Getaway Location

  • 5 of 5

There were four adults and two children in our party, and this house was a perfect size. The view is so much better than being in a hotel room, even if the hotel was on the beach. The whole front of the house is basically windows; there were times we just wanted to lounge around and enjoy the view. It is very close to a child friendly beach. Many great restaurants are near. Bill and Joyce, who live next door, have a book full of restaurant info, as well as what to do on the island. They have some snorkeling equipment, beach shoes, and boogie boards, as well as beach towels. It has a very steep drive, but worth the little extra oomph needed from your vehicle.

Stunning View!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great experience! The owners, Bill & Joyce were very kind and took the time to show us around in our first day. Although we did not see them again until our last day,

they made sure we were settled and comfortable. The best part of every morning was the view from the front porch! We were able to utilize the kitchen fully and the bedrooms were

nice and cozy. We traveled to many places during our vacation and we had a very nice place to return to at the end of each day.

Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our family experienced the vacation of a lifetime on Oahu and coming home to Hillside Haven each night made the trip complete. The house was perfect for our family of 4 in every way. We were welcomed with fresh fruit, coffee/tea, and island hospitality! The neighborhood was peaceful and the VIEWS from this house are absolutely breathtaking! There is a binder of brochures and sight seeing tips from the owners in the home. Their knowledge of the island and destinations is invaluable! We will definitely be back!

Greatest Owners and View of all time

  • 5 of 5

There were 8 of us adults going on an island hopping vacation. This was our first island, and what a wonderful way to start our adventure. Bill and Joyce were fantastic to correspond with leading up to our arrival. When we arrived, the house was more beautiful than the pictures. The pictures didn't lie, the view was AMAZING! No other house we stayed on while at the other islands could compare. The STEEP driveway was scary, but once you get up, it's well worth it. There is an abundance of beach accessories in fine shape. It didn't feel cramped at all for the 8 of us adults. If we ever make it back to Oahu again, we will be staying here!

Wonderful getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our young family of four stayed at this wonderful family friendly house perched on the top of a hill near Kailua. We were warmly greeted by Bill and Joyce, who welcomed us and made us feel at home. It is a very spacious residence with a fully stocked kitchen and wraparound balcony. It is very private as it is the top house on the hill (you do need a car). There was ample beach toys for the kids and snorkel gear for the adults. The owners live next door, and were available at all hours to answer any questions or provide recommendations for what to do on those rainy days, but were very discrete and I didn't see them unless I had a question. The location is only a quiet 5 minute drive to Kailua Beach, and a 30 minute commute into downtown Honolulu. If you're looking to stay away from Waikiki, have access to beautiful beaches, and enjoy the rugged greenery of the Eastern windward side near Kailua, this is the place!
