unspoiled, unpretentious, calm water, walk straight into the pacific ocean and reef edge and look for turtles, angel fish, etc.
We loved staying at Yao's place! Family of 4, we had the upstairs studio which had a comfortable large bed in the loft and space for our 9 and 12 year old below. The view from the living room was spectacular, looking out over Kaneohe bay and green mountains beyond. Yao supplied us with everything we needed, from boogie boards and water shoes to paddle board (though it was too windy on the bay for us to use it much during our stay). The location for us was perfect- Kaneohe is residential and "real" with a few restaurants 10 mins down the road. It's not Waikiki, but that's what we liked about it, and it was a convenient home base for exploring the whole island (we day tripped to the north shore, hanuama bay, even Kaena point all reachable in less then an hour even with some traffic). Would stay again happily on our next trip if we are so fortunate!
Place was great, close to Chinaman's Hat and the Sunken Beach. The place is on the rainy side of the island, so expect some weather - Backyard drops off right into the ocean, but there is no beach on the property. This is one 'apartment' of a 5 different 'apartments' in a large house.
The studio is very welcoming. It's a place you where you could stay all day and enjoy it. The quit, the privacy and the view make it a relaxing place to stay. The lani is great.
This is the most beautiful place we have stayed in the Islands! You wake up to a spectacular view of China Mans hat, what could be better than that. Yao was a wonderful host! She provides EVERYTHING you could need for a perfect vacation, from Shampoo to a standup paddle board and everything in between :) I'm sad to say we didn't use any of the water toys, we sat down by the water in the patio furniture and were just so relaxed we couldn't bring our selves to get up for hours. This only means we will certainly return to this perfect Island get away!
Thanks for a wonderful vacation!

Yao was incredibly welcoming and helpful. We found her house to be perfect for our needs. We rented one of the smaller spaces, but it was perfect for my husband and I. It even crossed my mind that we would have even had room for our children to stay too. The backyard walking right into the bay was just breathtaking. Yao generously supplied every piece of equipment we could possibly have needed, from snorkel gear, to water shoes, to beach towels, chairs, hats. . .you name it. We frequently used the kayak and snorkeled. We LOVED Local Catch, Kanohe Boston Pizza (I know, but it was really good), and KOA Pancake House. There were always local fishermen out in the bay who were so nice and helpful as well. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect place to stay! Our last day, we kayaked out into the water for the sunrise and were treated not only to a gorgeous sunrise but a double rainbow!
My wife and I chose to get married in Hawaii with just our immediate family. It was convenient for them to let us all stay under one roof, even though it meant the owners had to leave! Everything was very nice.
property is only about 5 minutes away from shopping malls...
but it is removed just enough to enjoy your peace and relaxation and with the feel of good ol hawaii
