Location, location, location! Away from the busy-ness of Waikiki yet so convenient to the best that O'ahu has to offer, this retreat offers a tropical palate, modern amenities, and amazing sunrises on one acre of oceanfront property (not a swimming beach) facing Mokoli'i Island (Chinaman's Hat) on the windward side of O'ahu. Water activities, horseback/ATV riding, hiking/exploring, shopping, sampling from diverse and delicious eateries-you're in a convenient spot from which to launch activities.

Location

Kaneohe, Hawaii, United States

The vacation home is located in Kaneohe, Hawaii, United States. Tucked away from the hustle-and-bustle of Honolulu/Waikiki....but a close commute to everything! Whether it's swimming, snorkeling, beachcombing, horseback riding, ATV riding, hiking, exploring every nook and cranny of the island, taking in unparalleled beauty, sampling from O'ahu's diverse and delicious cuisine, you are in a convenient location from which to launch the day's activities. Just one mile up the road, the picturesque 153-acre Kualoa Regional Beach Park offers sweeping mountain and ocean views, picnic lawns, and beach access, while Kualoa Ranch & Zipline, a 4,000-acre private nature reserve and working cattle ranch, offers a plethora of activities: horseback riding, ATV riding, zip-lining, and tours of Hollywood film locations.
For a literal and delicious taste of Aloha, you'll want to visit
Tropical Farms Macadamia Nut Farm, just up the road from the vacation home, which began years ago as a simple roadside store and is now a quaint farm with a shop selling macadamia nuts, coffees, chocolates, and gift baskets. For genuine Hawaiian kalua pig, squid lu'au, lomi salmon, poi, haupia, ho'io salad....a visit to the Waiahole Poi Factory, just a two minute (1.4 miles) drive down the road, is a must. Nearby Sunshine Arts Gallery is a delight for your eyes and offers unique Hawaiian treasures.
The friendly, laid-back, beach community of Kailua, with its eclectic assortment of eateries and boutiques and 2-mile stretch of white-sand beach; the spectacular North Shore with its unparalleled beauty, old surf-town Hale'iwa with its shops and restaurants; and even Waikiki and the South Shore....all are easily accessible from the vacation retreat.

Born and raised in western Massachusetts, about as far away as one can possibly be from Hawai'i and still be in the United States, I arrived on O'ahu for a one-month vacation in 1980…but Hawai'i is hard to get out of one's system and I stayed to make Hawai'i my new home state. I’ve been exploring and loving the islands, people, and culture of Hawai'i for nearly four decades. I bought my first property on O'ahu in 1983, and during the 45-day escrow period, I earned my State of Hawai'i real estate license. Just two years later, I purchased the company I’d been working for; upon selling that business in 1986, I began and built my company, Fidelity Properties, from the ground up. I purchased this beautiful (undeveloped) property in 1989 and built my home and the rental home and, over the years, I've nurtured the 'aina (land). I enjoy swimming, boating, and staying active. Most importantly, I am happy to share this paradise with you. Why this property? "Keep the COUNTRY country." You will see intermittent signs along the road on your way to the home. The village of Waikane is in "the country" away from the developed and more congested and populated areas of the island, and residents would like to keep it that way! Here, there are flower farms and and fruit trees.....a little bit of yesteryear and a country road that hugs the shoreline and takes you along an incredibly scenic drive along the windward coastline and onto the North Shore. The quiet, windward side of O'ahu, from Kahuku to Kaneohe, is renowned for its lush vegetation, breezy trade winds, spectacular beaches, friendly little towns, and laid-back lifestyle. With just about everything close at hand and several convenient avenues to Honolulu as well as the North Shore, it is no wonder I fell in love with and chose windward O'ahu, backdropped by the dramatic Ko'olau Mountain range, for my home and business base. The nearest town is Kane'ohe, only a 15-minute drive, where you will find a variety of restaurants and shopping, a newly-expanded mall, movie theaters, and grocery stores. An acre of oceanfront, prettily landscaped with palm trees, flowers, and a lily pond, offers tranquility at the water's edge (the 'ae kai).....Sit and relax: your view is the Chinaman's Hat sitting in the calm bay and the Ko'olau's rising steeply. Forget your cares, feel anxiety slip away, savor the serenity.....
