Property Details

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 3)

Enjoy a restful respite in this private cozy cottage. The cottage is a separate building located on the back corner of a 10,000 sq. ft. lot.This is a comfortable, self-contained, one-bedroom cottage (approximately 850 sq. ft.) and is bright and spacious. It is furnished with loving care and charm. We are located in Lanikai across the street from the beach.

There is a beautiful secluded beach at the end of the easement with safe swimming for children, and a perfect spot to put in your kayak. It is not walkable when tides are high. The cottage is a separate building from the main house and the yard is private. An outside hot and cold shower is available for your use when returning from the beach. We have a laundry room for your convenience. Also located under the carport are beach mats,umbrellas, beach towels, masks, snorkels, beach chairs, toys etc.

We have a lot of beach toys. We have several kayaks available to rent and our rate is lower that the local shops charge. It is also much more convenient to take the board from here rather than having to drive to the shop to make the rental. We also have bicycles available for your use.

The property's electricity is operating on a photovoltaic system which means that all the electricity is supplied by the sun. You basically have no carbon footprint with this system.

A This is a non-smoking facility.

Owner is on site to meet all needs of guests. We offer a grocery service to guests who would like amenities/food upon arrival. Please ask owner for more information.

I also have a Loft apartment vrbo # 339963. sleeps 4. Guests will also rent this unit if they have friends or family joining them.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The past two months here at your cottage have been absolutely wonderful. Lanikai is truly a very special place. Thank you for opening up your home for me and I appreciate your warm and laid-back personality and your professional and welcoming hospitality. I hope to be back sometime soon, but I will have many wonderful memories of my time spent here. Best of luck to you and your family.

Bungalow Beauty

We can't say enough about our recent stay in the bungalow. The size was perfect, the atmosphere cozy and the owner and family so welcoming and accommodating.
The beach was a short walk away, which was very convenient. We enjoyed sitting in the back yard, relaxing and looking at the banana, lemon and various other tropical trees.
This little bungalow is definitely a gem.

Highly recommended

Our week at the Lanikai bungalow with its feel of a laid-back treehouse was the perfect setting for a second honeymoon. A relaxed, homey respite that was perfect for our needs. Though the weather was hot and humid, the ceiling fans and two lanais provided cool breezes. One night we had a huge thunderstorm that was kind of exciting! Lynn and her son who live in the main house were wonderful hosts, completely unobtrusive but very helpful when we needed them. We walked to the fabulous Lanikai beaches, climbed the Pillbox Hiking Trail and had a couple of easy day trips to Honolulu for the ukelele festival and the newest Pearl Harbor exhibits. The only thing we regret is not kayaking out to the Mokulua Islands. Next time...

Spent a week in the bungalow with my wife. We loved the quiet beauty and the cozy, but well furnished space. Lynn is a kind person and a fantastic host.

Holiday in Lanikai

  • 5 of 5
The cottage is lovely, the garden as well-- a perfect place for an older couple to relax and watch the cardinals flit from tree to tree. Best is the close access to entry into the warm sea, a fabulous spot for swimming a good distance following the shoreline. Lanikai beach offered calm water most days and would be perfect for a young child to enjoy the sea.

This is a wonderful bungalow retreat! We're marine biologists, and were on Oahu for a month to do some work. Staying at Lynn's made it feel like a vacation. The cottage is very comfortable, beautiful maintained, and perfectly sized for two. It has everything you could ask for. We were ready to live there forever. The location (Lanikai) is legendary.. You're going to love this place!

Holiday with grandson

  • 4 of 5
If staying in Waikiki is not your idea of a holiday this little hideaway may be just the place for you. The daughter-in-law was very helpful with suggestions and we felt comfortable with her. Glad we rented a car and having groceries bought for us ahead of time was really wonderful.

From the Owner

I choose to live here and provide a rental property because it is one of the most beauitiful beaches in the world and Kailua is a very fun and manageable town.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Honolulu at 10 Miles Nearest Barpub : Kailua at 1 Miles Nearest Golf : Mid-Pac at 1 Miles Nearest Motorway : H-3 at 2 Miles Nearest Restaurant : Buzz's at 1 Miles Nearest Beach : Lanipo Street easement at 1 Miles

Lanikai is voted by Conde Nash as one of the most beautiful beaches. We have all the beach toys, kayaks, surf boards, 3 man outrigger, stand-up boards and a local expert who can take you out on a private excursion for a nominal fee. There are three beach easements across the street and we are near the end of the loop which is much quieter than the beginning of Lanikai. It is a 5 minute walk to the 1/2 mile strip of Lanikai (walking portion) beach.
