    Wonderful property to feel like home and act as your home base

    We really enjoyed staying at Terry and Liz's Ohana unit. The unit is tucked away on a quiet hillside overlooking beautiful Kaneohe Bay. The outdoor space is unique and tropical feeling with a gorgeous monkey pod tree providing shade and ambiance! The unit is clean and comfortable and has all the comforts of home, from face wipes to refresh after getting off the plane, plenty of towels for beach and showering, coffee and local honey for your morning joe, and they even had a delicious pineapple sliced in the fridge ready for breakfast our first morning! Terry and Liz greeted us and showed us to the unit, despite our late arrival. They were kind and accommodating of our needs as we traveled with an infant. Although we never made it for a hike, there is a popular hiking trail directly across the street from this property that would have been a lot of fun had we had more time. We loved the location of this property, just 10 minutes to Kailua and a short jaunt down into Town side. We truly enjoyed our stay here and only wish we'd had more time! Thank you!

    Cozy studio

    Studio was clean and nice. Location was remote and for some reason I thought walking distance to beach or bay. The only complaint sliding glass door need better lock didn’t seem secure enough for me and screen needs replaced.

    Kaneohe Review-; IT DOES NOT GET ANY BETTER THAN THIS!

    I was fortunate enough to spend three months with Elizabeth and Terry in this beautiful studio apartment below their home. As a travelling therapist, I have had many different experiences with housing, short/long term stays, etc. and this place blew them all out of the water. Communication with this couple was easy, well organized, and extremely welcoming. Upon arrival to the home, I found that the kitchen was fully stocked with the appliances/dishes I needed, the grill was cleaned with a brand-new tank of propane and a bag that included a lighter and all the grilling tools one may need. The sink was set up with a new bottle of dish detergent, the shower fully stocked with unopened bottles of shampoo, conditioner, body soap, and a fresh bar of soap. All toiletries were brand new with replacements stored away for future use. If ever I ran out of paper towels, trash bags, etc. they would restore them for me immediately. The studio was spotless upon my arrival. They did everything in their power to make me feel comfortable and to ensure that I had everything I needed. As a traveler from the mainland, there were many items that I needed but did not want to purchase because I knew I could not fly them back home with me (beach chair, umbrella, cooler bags, etc). All I had to do was ask and before I could get home from work and they would have all of these items set out on the porch for me to borrow for my duration. I absolutely loved the location, the views, and the neighbors. I felt more comfortable in this studio than anywhere else I have ever been. Also, if you enjoy hiking, there is a hike, The Friendship Garden, that begins approximately 10 feet from the driveway- great for a little evening exercise. Throughout my stay, they ensured that I always had a place to park in the driveway- which was VERY CONVENIENT if you have ever had to struggle with street parking. They always gave me my space, I was able to come and go as I pleased, and would always check-in to be sure I was doing okay and to see if there was anything they could help me with. You can find beaches, shopping centers, grocery stores, and gyms all within 10-15 mins of this location. They allowed me the option of a weekly maid (with an extra fee) and it made ALL the difference! The maid is phenomenal as well, it is a great feeling getting home from work to find that all of your dishes have been washed, trash is out, and your studio spotless. Elizabeth and Terry are truly good people.

    Beautiful area, very clean property

    Very clean property with nice sized kitchen/bathrooom areas and single room. A good size for a single traveler or a couple (with maybe a baby or very small child.) Great views from your patio including of the bay and from the neighborhood.The hosts are very nice and can offer advice or information about local sights etc, if you want it. There is parking for a single small to moderate sized vehicle and the hosts reserve 2 days a week for guest to use the washer and dryer, but you can arrange to use anytime if needed. Wifi was fine for anything I needed to do online. Be aware that this is an actual neighborhood, not a tourist party site. It is quiet in the sense of no parties or late night noise, but like many real Hawaiian neighborhoods, the fact that windows are open, people are outdoors and the houses are close together means that you can hear a lot of different ambient noises in the day/evening, and also the neighbors can hear you. So if you want to play music or videos, or have phone conversations late at night you might want to go elsewhere.

    Tropical Paradise

    We were truly lucky to find this jewel on Oahu for the holidays! Terry and Liz were wonderful hosts and they have attended to every detail to make this a one of a kind listing. It’s a quiet paradise tucked under a magical Monkey Pod tree, on a hillside overlooking the bay. We enjoyed having coffee outside listening to the birds and breezes high in the forest canopy. The newly remodeled accommodation is comfortable and well-appointed with new furnishings and linens. This central location, away from the hustle and bustle of Honolulu, is a perfect base to explore all areas of the island (35 minutes to Waikiki, Honolulu, or Pearl Harbor; one hour to Makaha Beach on the West side; and one hour to Turtle Bay or the North shore).
