House in Kaneohe Hawaii, USA

Our small comfortable Home is located on the Windward side of the island of Oahu, Hawaii. Kaneohe is a typical suburban area close to all amenities, tourist sites and beaches. The weather is pleasant all year. We live in a neighborhood with a private pool only 2 streets away. We sometimes can offer a car exchange but if not, Oahu has excellent The Bus service. We have NO Internet and NO Cable TV service in our home. Best to enjoy your time outside. Options are to bring your own Wifi Hot Spot or go to Starbucks 1 mile away. We have movies available to watch on the TV.

The island of OAHU has Waikiki Beach where many tourists spend their entire holiday. There is so much more to see and do though.

-Climb DIAMOND HEAD (Reservations required for hike & parking)
-Avoid shopping in Waikiki, head to the ALOHA STADIUM FLEA MARKET for best prices on Souvenirs on Wednesday, Saturday or Sunday morning from 9am - 2pm. Allow a minimum of 2 hours to shop.
-If you like beaches, KAILUA and LANIKAI are only 6 miles/10km away. These beaches have fine sand, body surfing, kayaking, SUP (stand up paddling), kite surfing and snorkeling.

-The best snorkeling is at HANAUMA BAY Wednesday - Sunday. $25 Reservations Required 2 days before. You must go on line promptly at 7am, 2 days before to reserve a time slot for up to 5 people. Tickets are all sold out by 7:15am. OR best to arrive at Hanauma Bay at 6:45am day of, without Reservation.

Visits to the USS MISSOURI ship where the WWII Peace Treaty was signed and/or PEARL HARBOR AVIATION MUSEUM on Ford Island and/or USS Bowfin Submarine can be purchased at Pearl Harbor Historic Sites on the day of your visit.
-The NORTH SHORE beaches are also beautiful and host the big wave surfing contests during the winter season November to March.

-HUMPBACK WHALES are visible around the islands from November to April. I recommend going on a Whale Watch tour. Other sightings of protected Green Sea Turtles and Hawaiian Monk Seals are becoming more common but please give them room, it is illegal to approach them.

Looking for other things to do?

Kaneohe is a town located on the windward side of Oahu. We have spectacular mountain (Mauka) and ocean (Makai) views, all conveniences and access to nature nearby. The Bus service covers Oahu quite well including to Waikiki and the North Shore. Our Skyline train opened July 2023 and currently travels from near Pearl Harbor to Kapolei. Can be paired with the bus system.

Kaneohe Bay is a protected bay making it great for boating. The sandbar is a great place to visit as you are in the middle of the ocean with a beach at low tide. You can swim, snorkel, kayak, picnic, etc. Access by water only.

Our neighborhood has a private pool only 2 streets away. The grocery store and restaurants are 1 mile away. We are close to the ocean & beaches only a few miles away and trails in the mountains less than 2 miles away. We live close to the largest botanical garden on Oahu - Ho'omaluhia - where you can drive, walk, bike or camp.
