Beautiful place for laid back oahu vacation
We loved staying at Yao's place! Family of 4, we had the upstairs studio which had a comfortable large bed in the loft and space for our 9 and 12 year old below. The view from the living room was spectacular, looking out over Kaneohe bay and green mountains beyond. Yao supplied us with everything we needed, from boogie boards and water shoes to paddle board (though it was too windy on the bay for us to use it much during our stay). The location for us was perfect- Kaneohe is residential and "real" with a few restaurants 10 mins down the road. It's not Waikiki, but that's what we liked about it, and it was a convenient home base for exploring the whole island (we day tripped to the north shore, hanuama bay, even Kaena point all reachable in less then an hour even with some traffic). Would stay again happily on our next trip if we are so fortunate!
