House in Kaneohe Hawaii, USA

Our 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 car exchange but if not, Oahu has excellent The Bus service. We do NOT have Internet or 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. If you like beaches, Kailua and Lanikai are only 15km away. These beaches have fine sand, body surfing, kayaking, SUP (stand up paddling), kite surfing and snorkeling. The best snorkeling is at Hanauma Bay every day except Tuesday when it is closed. 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? We are within 2 miles of 3 Golf Courses, there are many hiking trails and if culture interests you we are about 45 minutes from The Polynesian Cultural Center with shows daily except Sunday. Doris Duke's "Shangrila" residence is also an interesting tour with reservations recommended booked through the Honolulu Museum of Art at http://www.shangrilahawaii.org/

History is your thing? Visit Pearl Harbor with free tours every few minutes. Add a trip to the USS Bowfin Submarine, the USS Missouri where the peace treaty was signed to end WWII or visit the Pacific Aviation Museum also on Ford Island at http://www.pacificaviationmuseum.org/

Neighbor Islands are accessible by 20-45 minute flights.

We will share our actual address when we have agreed to an Exchange.

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.
