Property Details

Updated: Jul 27, 2016
2 bedrooms, 1 bath, sleeps 6 - king bed, queen bed, queen futon and full futon

Please call me for updated calendar. Calendar may not necessarily be up to date.

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 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 it is 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 nearby. 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 the famous "pillbox trail" hike, which allows for even more spectacular views of Lanikai Bay and the Mokulua Islands.

I live on the property. PLEASE CONTACT ME BEFORE YOU BOOK.

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.

Felt like a local

  • 5 of 5

Lois is as kind and wonderful as in the previous reviews. She met us at the bottom of the driveway to help guide us through the steep driveway parking routine. We rented a Jeep which worked well for parking and reversing on the driveway. The house is larger in person than the pictures may suggest. I was tempted to write a poor review so I could ensure more availability for a future stay, but Lois is just too nice!

This location makes you feel like a local Hawaiian: Walking or driving to the village market for food, walking to the beach and coming home to an outdoor shower, hearing the birds every morning, leaving your "slippahs" outside Hawaiian-style. The house has several little touches to make your stay special, such as sand toys and boogie boards for the kids, extra chairs for the deck, remote controlled fans, and a large closet for your garments.

If you're looking for the quiet side of O'hau away from the crowds, this will suit your style.

Comfortable home with impressive views

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Everything was as described, photos were accurate,

the kitchen generously appointed, the short walk to the beach enjoyable. The beach itself was

beautiful, lively but not crowded on the weekend, almost empty during the week, very gentle turquoise water.

Lanikai and Kailua are places to change gears and take things into a slower, gentler mode and I liked

that very much.

The location was wonderful. It was very quiet and relaxing. Five minute walk to Lanikai Beach. The views were amazing! The house was clean and had all the amenities you needed - beach towels, beach chairs, washer & dryer to list a few. The hot tub was just the perfect place to relax after a day of hiking to the pill boxes. I was worried about one bathroom with four adults but it worked out great. The drive way is steep but we got use to it. Lois was a great host and even allowed us a late check-out! Our family is already planning coming back to this property next year!!

Wow! Can we live here?

  • 5 of 5

Lanikai Ocean View is every bit as beautiful as the photographs - in fact the photos don't do it justice. The property is more spacious than we expected and the view from the deck was just incredible. Once we arrived, we immediately made the decision to have breakfast and dinner at the house every day, because you can drink in the ever-changing vista for hours. Lois has provided for her guests superbly - the kitchen was brilliantly appointed with everything we needed to cook some great meals, and we appreciated the use of beach chairs and body-boards (which were well-used by our children). The walk to the stunning beach is much shorter than it may appear on the website: trust the reviews of everyone that it really is just five minutes. And the beds are incredibly comfortable.

We had booked this property for a special occasion, and it more than lived up to our expectations. We didn't want to leave!

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

Incredible views! Everything was as described and promised, except the broken dryer which, the owner said, was arriving the week after our departure. We had some laundry to do, but it wasn't a major issue for our four nights stay. Lois, the owner, was very kind and easy to work with. I would definitely recommend this place to friends and family, and would book this accommodation again in a heartbeat every time I visit Oahu.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. I offered that you use my dryer if needed, but, as you say, it wasn't a major issue. Thank you for being understanding. Because of all the storms hitting Hawaii this season, many ships were delayed, and so our dryer will finally be installed tomorrow. One of the many joys of living here in the islands.

Excellent accomodation

  • 5 of 5

It was truly wonderful days, we spent here. Every morning, we stayed, went to beach and every evening, we had the dinner at the lanai with magnificent ocean view. We took a meal from some Kailua town Restaurants, Uahi Island Grill, Prima Pizza, Mahaloha burger and amazing store “Whole foods Market”. We enjoyed Thursday night Kailua Farmer Market too. Our six years son took a hot tub. It was his most impressive thing. Barefoot staying is suitable for us Japanese. We were able to see a star filled sky here. It was very impressive that there are more stars in the sky than I can count. Thank you for wonderful staying in Lanikai and we would stay here again!

The water is clean, clear and warm with white sand. Lanikai has a 2.2 mile bike/jogging path. Kailua town is 5 minutes by car for shopping and restaurants.
