Exquisite beach location!

  • 5 of 5
The cottage had everything the four (2 adults, 2 kids 13 & 10) of us needed. Comfortable beds, cool breezes! The proximity to the beach is incredible, we woke up early to enjoy spectacular sunrises, enjoyed the sunny beach & snorkeling, rented stand up paddle boards, and enjoyed long beach walks. We cooked in the cottage and also enjoyed the nearby town of Kailua for exploring restaurants and discovering local chocolate shop Manoa Chocolate (go for a lovely tour, and chocolate tasting!) We all loved the outdoor shower, rope swing and hammock. We did the pillbox hike at sunset and loved the incredible views. Went to honolulu to visit Pearl Harbour, and also took a drive all the way to north shore! Wouldn't hesitate to stay again. Our hosts were friendly and quick to respond to any questions or to provide help. We loved Lanikai/Kailua and think paddler's dream is a rare find for this area.

Beachside Paradise

This was our first visit to Lanikai Beach and we will definitely be back. The beach and surrounding neighborhood/town were great. What made our stay truly awesome were the hosts at Paddler's Dream. They helped us every way possible and made us feel so welcome. We felt like we were part of the family. Thank you. See you again soon. Aloha.

very basic

  • 3 of 5
Hi Robin,
We had a good stay overall. I was very cold and with the windowna not designed to close, we really need a warm blanket for sleeping. We were very cold! The accomodation was clean, but quite old. Bery basic for the price, but I understand its expensive around there! Very food neighbourhood. Nice spot on a beautiful beach! Internet connection not good in cabin either!

Owner's Response: Aloha Maryam,
Very sorry the weather was not as warm as Hawaii could be, that was unfortunate. I wish you had let me known the 1st night you were cold and I would have had blankets delivered for you! Heavy blankets are just not "normally" needed, but could have been easily taken care of for you. And yes, New Years week everything on the island books up solid and we get very high rents this week. We are still one of the most reasonable cottages directly on the sand in Lanikai. Thank you for staying with us!

Wonderful stay on beautiful Lanikai Beach!

  • 5 of 5
The cottage was comfortable and the location was excellent. We loved being on the beach, hiking to the Pill Boxes, Kayaking, walking through the neighborhood and to the town of Kailua. We spent daytimes playing and evenings relaxing in the gazebo. Robin and Josh are wonderful hosts and we would definitely stay here again.

Truly Paradise

  • 5 of 5
Paddler's Dream is truly a dream. The proximity to the best beach in Hawaii, if not in the country, is unbeatable. The table and bench placed at water's edge make watching the sunrise each morning so accessible and amazing! The cottage itself is well stocked and we ended up cooking in a lot, basically because we didn't want to leave the property and miss any good beach time or quiet time. But when you do get adventurous there is plenty to do in neighboring Kailua, and beyond. And the best part of the cottage is the outdoor shower. I never knew how much I needed one until now! We had a great vacation in no small part to this wonderful rental.
