Bayview Retreat is a new 1,200 Square foot professionally designed apartment centrally located to all major attractions. Beautiful hikes to waterfalls all within a 2 to 15 minute drive.
He'eia Kea Boat Harbor is 2 minutes from Bayview retreat and offers boat charters on Kaneohe Bay. Charters can include the full moon sandbar sails, snorkeling with turtles on various reefs and motor craft rentals.
One of nicest features of the apartment is the 24' x 10' lanai overlooking the water. The property is situated on a hillside so you are able to view many of Kaneohe Bay's patch coral reefs.
I have stayed at Bayview Retreat many many glorious times. It is my home away from home. Anita is the most gracious and accommodating hostess and always ready with great suggestions for many adventures on the island. The house is just beautiful and makes you feel right at home with a beatifully stocked kitchen for the gourmet in the family. The views are spectacular and makes you feel like never leaving the lanai!
It is truley my "aloha home" and I can't go too long without spending some time there, wheter it's a full month or a weekend. I highly recommend Bayview and the lovely hospitality of Anita and her family. Can't WAIT to get back!
From the communication from the owner about out stay to actually experiencing this property, our rental was first rate! The owner Anita has such a spirit of Aloha and can be counted on to address any of your needs from the property itself to recommendations and directions to local attractions. This property surpasses the description and pictures. Awakening to the sounds of the birds and the view was the highlight of our stay. The apartment has all of the amenities you could ask for (including iron, ironing board, and hair dryers) and is spacious, beautifully decorated and comfortable. I would love to live in this apartment full-time! Although there may be more beach and other activities on the leeward side of the island, the windward side and it's beauty is the place to be.
Expectations exceeded at every turn. From the location, to the beautiful property, to the sincerity of the owner-this place has it all. I stayed for a week with friends and it was truly paradise!
Anita helped us navigate the natural wonders of the area. We met amazing locals who welcomed us like family. We'll be back!
We spent 10 glorious nights in this wonderful place, overlooking Kaneohe Bay! It is called apartment in the description but it is so much more! We truly felt like we were in a home...our home! Every convenience at every turn, made for such a comfortable stay. Beautifully appointed with exotic furnishings from Bali, travertine and wood flooring, an amazing lanai with sweeping views, this hillside home in a lovely, quiet neighborhood was a gem! Close proximity to our favorite beaches of Kailua and Lanikai. Close grocery store (Safeway) and Walgreens and Longs Drug stores. Easy in and out of neighborhood and all points of interest. Look no further....this is a wonderful place for you to call "home"!
Owner, Anita was a delight to communicate with in the planning and a wonderful breath of Aloha to us! We hope to return someday, and we would recommend this property to family and friends.
Stayed at this awesome apartment through Easter break with the kids and mother in law, six days in total. We thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful view from the lanai the entire time we were there. If you like the quiet of living in a residential area while on vacation, this is it. A drive to to Pearl Harbor takes approximately 20-25 minutes depending on traffic. If you like wasting your time in traffic stay on the West side. Lots of people told us to stop at Walmart and Costco on your way to your rental. This is a flawed idea. We shopped local as we ate breakfast in the apartment and were off touring the island the rest of the day. I had friends tell me they spent $500 in food and shipped most of it home, since they ate out everyday. What a waste. On our way to the apartment, which is a term I wouldn't use as this place is very, very nice throughout. Stone flooring, granite counter tops, first class all the way. The communication with Anita was wonderful from beginning to end. We were provided with the owners phone numbers to call if we had any problems. They have wireless internet and since we all have I this and that, this was great as we could all use this service.
On the way to the apartment is the Byodo In, which is a replica of a 900 year old Buddist temple. Free parking and three bucks to get in. Way worth the price and time to walk the ground and ring the bell. If you go turn in to the grounds @ the McDonalds as there are two roads with the same name a 1/4 mile away from each other. This temple is approximately two to three miles away from the apartment. If you park at the McDonalds and walk the highway south about two hundred yards there is a path leading to a hike up to breathtaking, unobstructed views of the whole of Kaneohe Bay. The path is not marked, but for a sign that says no trespassing, which we took as the property to the right of the trail, but the hike is awesome when you make it to the top. If you are into standing on pill boxes manned by soldiers during WW2, locals we met on top of the hill told was this was the best hike in Kaneohe. Afterward there is a Shave Ice store right next to the grocery store near Mickey D's
The apartment is completely furnished will all the appliances you will need. I would recommend buying/bringing some spices of your cooking taste when BBQ'ing. We would not hesitate to rent this place in the future. Thanks again for a wonderful stay.
This was our first visit to Hawaii and I am so glad we found Bayview Retreat! We had a wonderful 5 day visit here and our only disappointment was that we couldn't stay longer. From the moment we arrived we felt comfortable in the lovely surroundings, both inside and out. The pictures represent the facilities beautifully. We loved the décor and the incredible views. Bayview is absolutely comfortable for 4 adults. We had some concerns about the lack of air conditioning until we experienced the trade winds; they are wonderfully refreshing and we were truly comfortable!
It was extremely relaxing being in a neighborhood as opposed to the hustle of the city. The location worked very well for us. Our daughter was attending a conference in Honolulu and had to commute a couple of days. Even with rush hour traffic and construction the trip was only about 40 minutes. We also like the fact that the many other areas of the island were so quickly and easily accessible.
Beach towels, beach chairs, and a cooler are on site which made heading to the beach a quick and easy process. Anita, the owner and host, provided us with ideas and suggestions for areas of interest to explore and restaurants. We particularly appreciated her assistance in finding the "path less traveled" areas as that is our preference when traveling. If you stay at Bayview, be sure to have a splurge and go to dinner at Haleiwa Joe's. It is an incredible restaurant; food and surroundings - thanks Anita!!
We have been fortunate to have had several terrific experiences renting through VRBO and HomeAway; Bayview Retreat has been another wonderfully successful experience. We have reminisced and reviewed pictures regularly since our visit. Mahalo nui loa Anita and to your family for making our first trip to Hawaii such a memorable one!
Just finished a wonderful vacation at the Bayview Retreat. This property was way beyond my expectations! Beautiful view, immaculate accommodations, and a wonderful owner! Anita was very informative and helpful when we checked in. We were able to cook a great Thanksgiving dinner and have friends over to enjoy the food and view! The kitchen had everything we needed. I would recommend this property to anyone who wants a spot that is convenient to everything. The pictures and description of the place is very accurate. Thank you for everything. I really enjoyed getting to know my Marine and his wife in such a comfortable setting! We had a blast!
