Open, very spacious, newly renovated 2nd fl studio in cedar home. Modern rustic vibe. Good for those looking for a place away from Honolulu's bustle. You'll like my place because of the location, comfort, convenience; easy access to any part of the island with a car. Kāneʻohe is known for lush, verdant scenery; it is usually wetter (and cooler) on the East side. You will find yourself relaxing as you exit the tunnels overlooking the Bay-I do, everyday!
The short of it: I have 3 rescue dogs who are very sweet once they meet you, no smoking of anything anywhere on the property, no shoes inside, it is a large space and very clean so please do your part to keep it that way, I am around but prefer to let you do your thing, older neighborhood means please respect quiet hours.
If you are looking for a place other than the tourist-focused spots of Waikīkī, or the pace of Honolulu, and want to take advantage of not having to pay resort fees or parking fees, this could be the place for you. If you don't need a constant host, are pretty self-sufficient and content to do your thing, not seeking loud parties, and don't mind the love and affection of dogs, this could be the place for you.
Where you will stay:
The studio is newly remodeled (2017) and located on the second floor of a cedar home on a fenced corner lot. It is very spacious. You have your own entrance (up stairs); because the studio is on one end of the house, you also have privacy.
Vaulted ceilings, air-conditioning, 10' closet, new appliances and fixtures, king-sized bed. Large walk-in shower, microwave, full-sized refrigerator, toaster and hot plate, and a supply of locally grown coffee. Free broadband access wireless internet, TV with cable channels, DVDs. Beach chairs, mats, a beach umbrella, and small cooler bags to carry food in to the beach.
The rest of the house and the property:
The house sits on a corner lot, one side a road and the other a cul-de-sac. It is fenced, and bordered by a line of areca palms. The street side of the house can get busy during rush hour. You might hear dogs barking occasionally. My dogs will bark occasionally at passersby, though I always try to keep that to a minimum.
Disponible para huéspedes
Check-in time is 4p-9p. Out of courtesy for my neighbors, it is preferred that you try to keep between those times. However, if you do need to arrive later than 10p, just let me know. It is preferred you keep to the studio part of the house inside.
Atención a los huéspedes
I maintain a very busy schedule. My preference is to let you do your thing. You'll be greeted when you arrive, introduced to my pups, to make sure you are comfortable and set. As I live on the property, I am always around if you need anything. I prefer to let you do your thing, but I also want to make sure you enjoy your stay. However, if you need a constant host, this is likely not the rental for you.
Otros aspectos destacables
Besides myself, there are 2 roommates and 3 dogs - Theo, Blu, and Maka. They are all rescue pups, medium to large sized, and very sweet. You may hear them from time to time as they play. My dogs do roam the yard during the day so you must be comfortable among dogs; once you are introduced to them they will be your biggest fans.

Born and raised in Hawaiʻi, I can't imagine any other place my home.
On my bucket list: to surf, dive, and hike on every continent...and snowboard wherever I can along the way.
On my host style: My style is laid back and reserved; I am a busy working professional and tend to like my space, so I will do the same unless you need something.
