Property Details

Updated: Feb 22, 2015
2 bedrooms, 1 bath, sleeps 6 - king bed, queen bed, queen futon and full futon

Enjoy the gentle breezes of outdoor living on the windward side of the island of Oahu. This two bedroom, 2,000+ sq. foot private Lanikai hillside home is on a quiet, dead-end street just a 5 minute walk to the widest section of Lanikai Beach. From our veranda you have unobstructed ocean views of all of Kailua Bay and the Mokulua Islands (the Mokes). The sunrises are spectacular, and when the full moon rises over the water with the Mokes as a backdrop? Breathtaking. In winter watch the breaching Humpback whales play just offshore.

The house is fully equipped with everything you need for your vacation, including all linens, towels and paper products. Just bring yourselves!

Our 6-person, fully automated, solar-heated natural salt hot tub was built-to-spec by Natural Salt Pools.

The house opens to a 900 sq. foot wrap-around veranda with extra large sliding glass doors to allow flow-through breezes throughout the house and 180 degree views of Lanikai Bay and the mountain behind the house.

Lanikai park, which has a new playground, a basketball court, an open field, and a workout station, is located conveniently at the bottom of our hill. If you enjoy an early morning jog or a late afternoon walk, our 2.2 mile Lanikai loop is just the place. There is also a trail behind the house which leads to several World War II bunkers, perched at the top of the mountain, allowing for even more spectacular views of Lanikai Bay and the Mokulua Islands.

Thank you Lois for opening up your wonderful Lanikai home to us. Everything was perfect! The view was amazing, the home was clean, the beds were extremely comfortable, the kitchen was easy to get around in (with the great view), and the hot tub was an added bonus! Waking up to that beautiful sun rising is a memory that will be with me forever. Lois, you were the perfect hostess. I appreciate your hospitality.

Excellent stay

We had the absolute best vacation here. The house is gorgeous, close to beach and very very clean. We forgot one suit case when we left Portland but did not need to buy anything since the house had everything. It it the best deal and so much better than getting a hotel in Waikiki. It was the best place we've stayed and we really appreciated everything Lois provided us. Thank you Lois for the awesome memory. We will definitely come back!

Views and deck are better than photos show. House is beautiful. Kitchen well stocked. We were family of four with two older teenage daughters. We were worried about sharing one bathroom, but the bathroom is huge and well situated with shelf space for all. Short 5 minute walk to the beach. Towels, chairs, umbrella all provided. The pill box hike is only 5 minute walk away. We hiked it every morning. Short and sweet - not dangerous at all though a little steep in places, but it doesn't last long. No place better to eat a Snickers bar than sitting on top of one of those pill boxes. The hot tub is fantastic - very clean. Lois, the owner is more than nice and friendly. She made sure that all our needs were met and questions answered. We were so happy that we truly wanted to book for the following holiday before we left, but my teenage daughters decided that they want to try The Big Island next holiday. Bummer for me. But, we'll be back for sure. Truly - you don't need to bring anything other than yourselves. The washer and dryer allow you to pack very lightly! Don't even hesitate to book this place - it is phenomenal. As for eats: Moke's for breakfast was delicious. Boston pizza - best pizza we've ever had. Uahi Island Grill l- amazing! 7-11 for spam musubi. Also during our visit, there was free yoga in the park at the end of the block on Saturdays at 9:15 am. The yoga instructor led an all levels sequence at the perfect pace.

Excellent holiday

We were a family of five with three adult children. The house was very comfortable with all amenities we needed. We were able to purchase organic, gluten free and vegan food and groceries all within a 5 minute drive from our location. The house was an absolute highlight with exceptional views of Lanikai. We spent many moments viewing the sites from the balcony and spending quality family time. We were also a family with many interests and the area was perfect for swimming, hiking and water activities. It was also great for relaxing and enjoying the natural beauty. Lois was very helpful and provided the right amount of support while respecting our privacy. This was a gem of a find and I have already recommended the home to two friends who are very keen to make a booking. The property is more beautiful than its photos and will not disappoint. Excellent location with a comfortable 300 meters walk to the beach and easy drive to all amenities and key spots on the island. From here we went to the north shore and spent a day with the turtles which was one of the highlights of the trip!

Thank you so much Lois. We love your home - gorgeous view, perfect location. We hiked the Pill box trail most mornings to watch the sunrise & kayaked to the bird sanctuary once.
We also had many wonderful walks on Kailua and Lanikai beach. We also loved watching the children practicing canoeing each evening & their proud parents and grandparents patiently waiting for them...Hawaii's version of soccer parents. We look forward to staying at your hone again. mahalo!

This was the most outstanding property we visited in Hawaii. It was extremely well maintained and supplied with everything you could need for your vacation. The owner was very friendly and helpful. The view from the deck across the entire front is amazing. The 5 of us were very comfortable and highly recommend this property. It will be our first stop when we return.

This was our second time to Lanikai/Kailua area and we absolutely loved this rental! Amazing views and the accomodations were more than perfect! We were walking distance to the beach and to a great hike (The Pillbox). I didn't think we would use the hot tub but it felt nice to get in there while it showered one afternoon. The bedrooms were very large and clean and Lois was very easy to work with! My only recommendation is that you rent a car with four wheel drive to get up and out of the driveway. You almost need a SUV ish kind of car in Hawaii anyway, but it helped when backing in and out of the driveway. We would stay here again in a heartbeat!!!!!

From the Owner

It was too beautiful a spot to allow it to remain unappreciated!

Activity and Interests

Nearest Barpub : Buzz's at 1 Miles Nearest Restaurant : Buzz's at 1 Miles Nearest Beach : Lanikai Beach at 500 Metres Car: recommended

We are a 5 minute walk from Lanikai beach and a 10 minute walk to Kailua beach.

The bay is perfect for swimming every day and kite surfing, windsurfing and boogie boarding on windy days and stand up paddling and kayaking when it's calmer. The water is clean, clear and warm with white sand. Lanikai has a 2.2 mile bike/jogging path and hiking on the mountain behind the house. Kailua town is 5 minutes by car for shopping and restaurants. There is a bus stop at the bottom of our hill if you don't have a car, but a car is recommended. Waimanalo beach, another gorgeous beach, is 15 minutes away by car.
