Guestbook comments from the owner

Words cannot describe how wonderful Lois' place is, especially for the value, but I'll try. First, the location is easily the best spot in Lanikai, let alone Oahu altogether. The view is stunning, and the accessibility to Lanikai beach, Kailua and surrounding attractions makes this spot ideal for your desire to explore the island. BUT, we didn't because you simply cannot find a better "perch" on the island. In fact, most people we met around town and on the beach made this destination spot for a day, and left wondering "why don't we just stay here the whole time"? Enter our 7 day stay. First, Lois is a wonderful person and great host. Reminder, this is her home and permanent residence, thus it is (I believe) equally important to be mindful and respectful as guests (this probably holds true in most aspects of life). That being said, most of the time you felt like you had much of the property to yourself (includes the pool, your room, and a separate studio-like area with lots of extras). The bed is comfortable, the bathroom is clean and roomy, and even thought the sunrise and sunset are bar-none the best thing to do, Lois does provide wireless internet and cable t.v. Access to the beach is 3 blocks away, albeit I am lazy, so I chose to use are rental car. Lois provides you use of the washer and dryer, and the rec room is equipped with microwave, refrigerator, toaster oven, hot plate, coffee maker...and even gives you fresh eggs from her chickens and filtered drinking water as needed. I loved not having to pack beach towels, snorkeling gear, coolers, and other beach items because they are all provided. Anyone would be hard pressed to find a better accommodation and location for the price, not to re-mention what a great host Lois was. We also had our own parking spot, which is RARE in Lanikai. Again, words cannot describe the views, especially as your toes are dancing in the beautiful pool. I took a video from the patio where we watched the sunrise every morning. You can find it on youtube searching under Panoramic view of Lanikai Bay. This is what you'll see if you are fortunate enough to break away for vacation, and Lois' rental is available. Rani and I thank you again for a spectacular time "doing nothing". It was the best!!!!!

Terrific stay in Lanikai!

  • 5 of 5
Just spent 2 great weeks at Lois’s in Lanikai. Breathtaking views, lovely salt water pool, and cozy accommodations. Did I mention the best beach in Oahu is just a short walk down the hill. Lois is a very nice homeowner/host. All beach toys and anything you will need are there. Loved having a full size fridge with freezer. (Made less stops to the grocery store that way.)
Enjoyed the privacy on the lanai.
Very interesting hike to pillboxes, which is the view from straight up the hill behind the house. Nice bedroom, with big bathroom. Comfy bed. Great to have a washer and dryer to use. Buzz’s Restaurant is 5 minutes away, (went there numerous times, but you should make reservations it is super busy every night). Would definitely stay here again, when we go back to Lanikai!

local getaway with amazing views

  • 5 of 5
Lois's place was the perfect place to end our two week long honeymoon. Her place is in a quiet residential neighborhood, with amazing ocean views, sunrises and if you are lucky like us, a supermoon. Lois was very welcoming, and we really enjoyed socializing with her. The room was very clean and spacious. We only slept in the room, and spent most of our time in the spacious garage converted kitchen area. There was a really long counter-top for all your cooking and the window overlooking the ocean was a nice touch, especially if you like cooking like I do. Off to the side of the kitchenette, double doors opened to your patio space with the spectacular views that you see in the photos. We literally spent all of our time on that patio when we where at the house. The pool was also really nice and refreshing. The beach is walking distance, and yes, the driveway is steep but a little exercise is good for you! I would definitely recommend this place for a couple looking to relax and have a more local experience while enjoying spectacular views and nature.

Amazing view & stay

Amazing view & stay

We loved our stay here. The room and property are exactly as described with no surprises. As other reviewers have noted, the driveway is a steep walk... to a heartbreakingly beautiful view! Only issue we ran into was that the wifi router needed to be reset (same thing happens at home) and we did not realize it was in the room so asked Lois to do it. Lois not only reset it for us, she moved it out of the room in case it needed to happen again. The rec room is super fun and there are lots of beach accessories around. Lois is a lovely host & it is a lovely rental. We hope to be back soon. :)

Lovely Restful Comfortable

  • 5 of 5
Lois was a most hospitable host! The property sits perched above Lanikai on the hill overlooking Lanikai homes and the lovely beach. The view is spectacular. The property is a terrific value! The bedroom is clean, comfortable, simply but tastefully decorated. The bathroom is equally simple, clean, and more than serves one or two guests adequately. The separate 'garage' conversion contains a full kitchen with appliances for your cooking needs. There is an even lovlier small patio in front of the garage, private and perfect for watching the sunrise over the Mokes while you sip your coffee. If you are nice, Lois might even bring you some freshly laid eggs from her chickens! Internet is included. My new home away from home the next time I visit Lanikai (the best beach on Oahu!).

You will love staying here. The view is the highlight with the Mokes and lots of bright green ocean in front of you. The accommodations are perfect for two. All you need for casual cooking. The bedroom and bathroom are very nice and spacious. We were there for an extended time period and it all worked out well. We got to know the owner and her pets. A very welcome, homey, and friendly atmosphere.
If we are back in Lanikai, this is the place we will want to stay.
