About the property

2 story licensed and approved B & B- 3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, sleeps 6

Island architecture offers year round resort type lifestyle. A Guest House (3 bed/2 bath) with solar heated salt water swimming pool (separating it from the main house) can accommodate 6 guests comfortably. All rooms have decks with incredible views of the Bay and the Koolau Mountains. Situated on a knoll overlooking the boat house and dock gives instant access to water activities such as fishing, kayaking, water skiing or just sitting by the edge of the grass to enjoy the sound of the water lapping at the shore. Reading a book in the gazebo under the shade of the coconut tree and cooled by the trade wind breezes offers quiet comfort. Myriad pictures for photographs from sunrise to sunset available to enhance your memories of a trip to Paradise. A spacious free-flowing living space that blurs the line between indoors and out.

Our suites are available for 2 to 6 persons. You do not have to take the entire 3+2. Please call for details.

We are surrounded by palm trees waving in the tradewind breezes, birds singing in the trees shading the property, many different hues of blue in the water and sky coloring the landscape. Each morning is a new canvas already painted for you to enjoy.

About Gail Morris

My husband and I are both from New York and met in Hawaii. We built the houses in 1972 and continue to add, improve and update on a regular basis. The guest house was originally for our 3 daughters and is now used by our visitors. The pool and deck separate the master house (where my husband and I live) from the guest house.

Gail Morris purchased this house in 1972

Why Gail Morris chose Kaneohe

This property is at the end of a short dead end street on a knoll overlooking the bay. We have a 360 degree view from the water to the Ko'olau Mountains. We have lived on this property for over 44 years and have been sharing it with guests for more than 25 years. We love it, we love Hawaii and hope our guests discover what we have found, 'the secrets of Paradise...' !

What makes this house unique

We are out of the hustle and bustle of city life but close enough to get everywhere on the island within minutes, from the North Shore to Diamond Head with Honolulu and Waikiki in between. It's easy to get to all those places but not having to deal with traffic and congestion every minute affords you quiet time to relax and really enjoy your vacation.

A stay like no other

  • 5 of 5

It's very hard to find a place to stay for 5 people. You either have to get 2 hotel rooms and pay a fortune, or get lucky with what's on offer. We got lucky.

From the pictures, it's obvious that this condo is unique. With a living room, sitting room, dining room right on the bay, offering a 180 degree view of the ocean, and three lovely bedrooms, each with a balcony and even more of a view, this was an exceptional space. The private pool is crystal clear and heated with plenty of room to just sit, wade, or dive deep.

This was our first time staying on the east side of Oahu, only a 20-25 minute drive to Honolulu, through the most majestic mountains and rain forest (just like Kauai!). I've never enjoyed driving on a highway more. Very close to Kailua town, we could choose whether to eat in or go out. We also went to the Polynesian Cultural Center's luau for the first time since it was closer to us, and had a wonderful day, plenty of activities for our 2 kids, and lots of excitement for us all.

Most of all, the owners of the condo, Gayle and Red, are exceptional hosts and very nice people. They live on the other side of the condo and were there to answer any questions, but were never intrusive. We thank them for a wonderful week.

A Great family getaway !

  • 4 of 5

Lot of positives here. We stayed here 6 nights during mid-February. Great views of the bay and the mountains. Worked out super well for our group of 6, with the bedrooms and bathrooms right off the heated, open-air swimming pool which certainly kept the two grandkids happy. Quiet neighborhood and plenty of nearby shopping. This was a great escape from the craziness of Honolulu, but not too far for a couple of evening dinners in Waikiki. On top of that the on-site owner-managers were delightful hosts. This one would rate above most of the VRB-Homeaways we've done. Ron DeHart Bothell, WA

Great holiday spot

  • 5 of 5

We travelled as a group of three couples in the 60s bracket and thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Gail and Red's home. They were both helpful and friendly, even inviting us over for New Year drinks. The view was 2nd to none and it was lovely to get back and relax on the comfortable deck after being over on the Honolulu side of the Island which was very busy. We all enjoyed being able to sit around together in our own space compared to staying in a hotel.

There was a small kitchen with fridge, microwave, cooking and eating implements and although there wasn't a stove with an oven there were hotplates which were perfectly adequate for our needs.

There was a downstairs double bedroom with ensuite, upstairs another double bedroom with a covered deck off it and a smaller bedroom with two single beds, a shared bathroom with a great shower!

The local town had a good shopping mall with a super restaurant which we happily frequented. There were other recommended restaurants so there was no shortage of eating places.

All up we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to anyone looking for somewhere nice for accommodation. It was winter (end of December/New Year's Eve) when we were there but it was still warm and comfortable, although the solar heated pool was challenged as it was frequently cloudy! I still went swimming, once in it was beautiful, I'm a bit of a softy. For somewhere comfortable and relaxing with outstanding views it was perfect.

Relaxing and charming

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our 1 week stay at Gail and Red's vacation rental. We got a lot of rain, which was kind of a damper but the sun did shine on Christmas Day. Gail was a very sweet lady, and our son Henry (2 yr old) really took a liking to her! We had plenty of space for 4 adults and one child.

The pool is solar heated, so due to the rain, the water didn't warm up very much. It was still very nice to have the ambiance of the pool for our pool-side meals. The location of the property is very central to other sights in Oahu, though you do need to drive for all your errands.

We would come again, but probably in the summer so we could really enjoy the warm weather and pool! Thanks Gail and Red.

Owner's Response: It’s always wonderful to have such delightful guests and even more so to know they appreciate our efforts to provide a unique experience. Unfortunately we have no control of weather and periodically God waters His garden sometimes a bit more than expected. Henry is a delightful child and I’m sure will continue to be the charmer that he is. May you continue to enjoy all the blessings you deserve throughout the coming year. With fondest Aloha, Gail and Red

Kailua and Lanikai south east and Kaaawa north
Car: recommended

We are on the east side of the island between windsurfing at Kailua and Lanikai beaches to the south and board surfing on the North Shore. We are 15 minutes from the airport, 25 minutes from Honolulu and 30 minutes to Waikiki. Hiking Diamond Head, shopping at Ala Moana Shopping Center, visiting the Zoo, or night clubbing at the hotels are all within an easy reach and give a variety of things to do. Visiting Pearl Harbor, attending a luau, seeing Sea Life Park, climbing Diamond Head, watching the big board surfers on the North Shore are among some of the 'must do's' while on Oahu.

Other Activities: Movies, shopping and dining at the Windward Mall, swimming at Kailua and Lanikai beaches, close to Hoomaluhia Botanical Gardens, Temple Valley Byodo-in, beautiful Haiku Gardens, Polynesian Cultural Center, Northshore beaches and surfing, Chinaman's Hat at Kualoa Beach Park, Waimea Bay and falls, Tropical flavored shave ice in Haleiwa, Turtle Bay Resort golfing, southside Sea Life Park, Makapuu and Sandy Beach, Hanauma Bay, Waikiki, Diamond Head, Zoo, Chinatown, Manoa Falls, Koolina Resort, Pearl Harbor, whale watching, picture taking,

Golf: Many courses available both public and private. Closest are Bayview, Pali and Koolau about 2-4 miles.
