Overview

About the property

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 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. The master bedroom has a new split system A/C which is operative 8PM - 9 AM.

At the bottom of the street, Lanikai park has a playground, a basketball court, an open field, and a workout station. 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.

After the beach, rinse off in the outdoor hot water shower with great view of the Mokes!

I live on the one acre property in a separate house so I am always available if you need anything.

What makes this house unique

It gets the trade winds, is away from the traffic and noise, and it has drop dead views. The house is airy and comfortable and has A/C in the master bedroom.

Guestbook comments from the owner

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.

Views!!

  • 4 of 5

PROS: The views are amazing! We ate every meal on the patio. We stayed 5 nights with our 6 and 2 year old. The kids loved the house, mostly the stairs, wrap around porch, and seashells on the coffee table. The driveway is STEEP if you're not a good driver but I wouldn't say it is a con, after all those views have to come at a price. We went to the Kailua Famers Market on Thursday night and had a blast. The outdoor shower was great after the beach, the beach toys were perfect. Overall we are already daydreaming about this house!!! In the middle of July, it was beautiful. Nights were warm but we slept with ALL the windows open and fans on & were very comfortable.

CONS: The ice maker wasn't working, would've been nice to plan for that! Blu-ray DVD player didn't work, and with 2 small children it would've been nice to sit them down for a minute but it wasn't that big of a deal. FYI: it is a blu-ray player and the movies in the closet are regular DVD so they don't play, we rented at redox. The jacuzzi was great but with the environment, there were cockroaches outside in the evening which I was not a fan of.

Thank you Louis so much for a great stay overall. Our remaining days were spent at Aulani where we had major crowd anxiety after our amazing stay in your beautiful home!!

Owner's Response: I'm glad your family enjoyed your stay at my home. I enjoyed having you as well. I'm sorry you didn't get the DVD player to work, but I went down the next day to check it out and had no problem playing a dvd. I have now written the directions in the book in case anyone else has a problem. I apologize for your frustration. Regarding the ice maker, I leave ice in the freezer as well as ice cube trays. I realize it's not high tech, but it works. I'm glad overall you loved your time here even after comparing it to your stay at 5-star Aulani.

This property has great views, a great locale, and was a great fit for our family of 5!

  • 5 of 5

We loved being on the Windward side of Oahu! The 2 porches were great to hang out on and we loved being close to the best beach areas and hiking the Pillbox. It is definitely more relaxing than Honolulu, but easily accessible (we did Pearl Harbor).

We were also able to cook and do laundry, very accommodating!

Owner's Response: I'm glad you took advantage of the pillbox hike being so close that you could hike it many times and also enjoyed Lanikai Beach. Yes, we are far enough from the hustle and bustle of Waikiki but close enough to be able to visit easily.

Majestic views and a beautiful house

  • 5 of 5

This house is absolutely beautiful and beyond our expectations. The views are breathtaking. The house is comfortable with lots of room and everything you need. The pictures of the interior of the house do not do it justice. It is beautiful inside and out!! The location could not be better. We loved this house so much it truly made our vacation. Lois, the home owner, was wonderful. The next time we come to Oahu, we will arrange our trip around this accommodation. It was that amazing!! Thank you, Lois, from the bottom of our hearts.

Very nice property! I want to come back!

  • 5 of 5

Lois has created a wonderful experience for family travelers to Oahu. This rental property has an amazing view of Lanikai coastline and the Mokes islands. There was plenty of space for our family of six people. We definitely want to come back to this one!

View is almost too pretty :)

  • 5 of 5

Well, the panoramic view would have given this rental five stars even if it had been a Yurt! Just gorgeous and the house was spacious with just two of us. We chose to park below the house because if you don't then you must park on the steep driveway. That's not a negative but just a heads up so you are ok with either way. Lovely stay. Easy access to the fabulous Lanikai Beach. Would happily rent again. Mahalo!

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. Kailua town is 5 minutes by car for shopping and restaurants. Waimanalo beach, another gorgeous beach, is 15 minutes away by car.
