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.

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 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.

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.

Stunning View

  • 5 of 5

The house has a stunning view of the ocean and the Mokes which is optimized by the wall of sliding glass doors and windows. We've enjoyed sitting on the deck and in the hot tub just taking in the vista. The price of being built in to the side of the Lanakai hill is a very steep driveway, so make sure your rental vehicle is 4 wheel drive. We'd love to come back!

Tropical Sanctuary

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here last week with our two teenage daughters. We arrived in the dark at night and the house was nicely opened and lit up and welcoming. We were on Pacific time, three hours ahead, so when the thousands of birds woke us up with their varied songs the next morning at sunrise we were ready to go. Once we saw the view we couldn't believe it. We watched the sunrise over the Mokes, which became a tradition each morning, and within a couple of hours it was high in the sky and making the water turqoise. The Beach is within a 5-7 minute walk from the house. It's the most beautiful accessible beach in Oahu, nicely private and quiet with a gorgeous reef protecting it from waves and making it great for swimming, with the view of the Mokes in the background. You get a nice neighborhood experience, quiet and not too touristy. Just hanging out reading or snacking on the deck makes for a good day given the amazing view. We also enjoyed the town of Kailua, easily navigatable, parkable, and with just enough stores and places to eat to provide everything you could want.

Beautiful property at a great location

  • 5 of 5

It is a well-maintained property with everything we needed. The view was so beautiful. It was relaxing to sit at the lanai and enjoy the sea breeze.

Unbelievable view!

  • 5 of 5

Super place to stay for a family. We have three kids so the two bedrooms plus the futon worked well. The kitchen is spacious and we cooked quite a bit to save money - plus the view was one we didn't want to leave! We will certainly consider a return trip here.

Lovely house with spectacular views

  • 5 of 5

This is a very spacious, functional house with spectacular views of Lanikai! Sharing the single large bathroom with four adults was not an issue. We cooked several times during our stay and the kitchen was stocked with what we needed. We enjoyed each morning's sunrise and the double rainbows we saw on the day we left. Lois is a very responsive host. The only tip is that the views do come with a cost, which is a very steep and somewhat intimidating drive way. That should be factored in planning, if you have anyone in your party with mobility issues. In any case, we would love to stay here again!
