About Dian Weeks

For many years I have worked as an artist/sculptor...designing elements for the home. And I have managed property rentals for over 25 years. We spend a few weeks each year enjoying our island retreat and getting recharged.

Dian Weeks purchased this cottage in 1987

Why Dian Weeks chose Hawaii

We looked for a special location for over 4 years until 1987... when we finally found our perfect island retreat. We built a custom pole house(s) and appointed it with Indonesian/Asian furnishings from our travels and extensive tropical landscaping from local farmers. For years we have shared the guest house with travellers from all over the world...with many rave reviews.

What makes this cottage unique

This is a very unique, exclusive area...located about 10 minutes north of Kaneohe, in an area called Waikane which means 'Water of the Gods'. It's private; has a serene country feel embellished with gorgeous tropical vegetation & fruit trees. Being embraced by the Koolau Mountains and enchanting views of Kaneohe Bay...this property is like no other. Great location...10 minutes to Kaneohe town; 20 minutes to Honolulu & Kailua; 40 minutes to the NorthShore. And close to beautiful beaches all along the coast.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Welcome!! Hope you have a fabulous stay at our beautiful island home! Please leave us a comment about your experience here in Kaneohe...we appreciate your thoughts and kind consideration of our bayside retreat.

Aloha & mahalo!

:) Dian

Beautiful Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were traveling to Oahu for our honeymoon and chose to stay at the cottage. It is equipt with almost anything you could need. It has a beautiful view, especially if you walk down to the shoreline when the sun is rising. My husband and I enjoyed the geckos that occasionally visited, totally fine with them because they eat bugs! We loved our stay, and already want to go back!

Peaceful retreat close to all the action!

  • 5 of 5

This property is beyond beautiful! Sunrises and sunsets from the deck are amazing to watch. The cottage was very comfortable. Easy to find too. Right off the main highway but tucked back enough where you can't hear traffic noise. Lots of chickens running around and even a few geckos! I'd highly recommend this place!

Open air cottage with beautiful vistas

  • 5 of 5

Just spent our spring break in the Kaneohe cottage and absolutely loved our stay. Open air cottage with lush foliage, breathtaking sunrises over Chinaman's Hat, and stunning mountain vistas. True Hawaiian getaway in private compound off the beaten path and away from the crowded north and south shores. Towns of Kaneohe and Kailua are close by (15-25 min) and offer all the conveniences of the mainland, and you are located on the lush side of Oahu midway between north and south shores (40-55 min, depending on traffic).

Beautiful quiet country retreat

  • 4 of 5

Dian's place is exactly as described. We had everything we needed for a great vacation. The driveway does need some repair, there are big ruts that our rental car bottomed out on. We also only located one beach towel in the closet. One big downside is the main highway is under construction and alternately shut down one lane at a time from 9AM to 2PM. It made traveling to sight see very long. It was our first time to Oahu and we wanted to explore, it took usually 45 minutes or longer to get to the Likelike highway which then connects you to other highways. If you are looking to relax and unwind, this is a beautiful place, if you want to sight see then maybe stay closer to Honolulu. Also, our 2 children didn't like that they couldn't swim in the water at the front of the property.

Owner's Response: Aloha, Thank you for your feedback. Glad you had everything you needed and were able to relax and enjoy the beautiful setting. And sorry about the driveway ruts, the recent rains have washed away some of the gravel...which we are having filled. And the highway construction should be done soon, sorry for any inconvenience. And the shoreline is beautiful to see the sunrise and walk along the shore, but as mentioned...not good for swimming for shallow & silty. The property info provided mentioned that there's a beautiful sandy beach & swimming just 3 miles north at the Kualoa Beach Park. Thanks again for choosing our property! Mahalo!

This private retreat is located on the north end of Kaneohe Bay, about 7 miles north of Kaneohe, in an exclusive area known as Waikane-'Water of the Gods' ...on the Windward side of Oahu. Watch the sun rise over the Bay and Chinaman's Hat, a small island off the shore. Just a few miles north is the beautiful Kualoa Beach Park for swimming and hiking, and Kualoa Ranch where there's horseback riding and special events. Kailua Beach and Lanikai are approx. 25 minutes south; NorthShore and Waimea Bay are approx. 40 minutes north; Honolulu is about 20 minutes southwest.
