About the property

Ocean Front House, 2 Bdrm/2 Bath + Ohana Room, Sleeps 4-6. Great outdoor spaces.

Honu Hale Lanikai (Honu means turtle, Hale means house) is a simple and comfortable two bedroom oceanfront vacation home in beautiful Lanikai on the island of Oahu. Great for families. Honu Hale Lanikai has one of the very best locations in Lanikai, as it sits directly in front of the twin Mokulua Islands.

Honu Hale Lanikai has one bedroom/one bath in the main house and a large private bedroom and bath upstairs, which we call the Dolphin Suite. It can accommodate up to 6 people--2 each in the bedrooms and 2 on the queen futon bed in the living room.

See our YouTube video by clicking on the Video tab near the top of this page.

Honu Hale Lanikai location exactly in front of the Mokulua Islands provides endless hours of outstanding views from both bedrooms as well as the living room, dining room, backyard, side deck and even the upstairs bathroom. Easy access (a short stairway down to the ocean) means you can swim, snorkel, kayak, fish, etc. right from your yard. Your days are filled with the sounds of waves, trade winds blowing through the coconut trees and picturesque sailboats, kayakers and outrigger canoes going by. Lanikai provides a fun and healthy lifestyle in a friendly beach community. It's perfect for families as well as couples wanting a relaxed Hawaiian style home environment away from the busy and crowded resort areas.

Our TAT ID Number is W20035064-01.

We came to this place for the wedding of our daughter, sister, and friend. It was perfect that we were all able to stay together in this beautiful house on the water. This excellent setting with the view of the 2 little islands, with the outriggers, kayakers, boaters and swimmers brought back the memories of the beautiful place that brought us all together, Palau, and that made us all family. ... We so enjoyed our early morning swims with the gorgeous sunrises. The colors from the sunsets were amazing. The stargazing incredible. All the neighbors were so kind and friendly. Most of all we enjoyed our daughter's, sisters's and friend's wedding that was a dream come true for us all. We made so may more beautiful memories here to share with one another and friends when we meet again.

Thank you so very much for the wonderful stay in your beautiful home. We had such a relaxing vacation here. The view is incredible and we loved the privacy! Our kids will never forget this experience, nor will we! Everything was just perfect--couldn't ask for a more accommodating home away from home.

Each day a coconut floats in from 'unknown' islands. Watching crabs (from a safe spot) walk along. Watching many bird or geckos, that's what I did.

Kevin Ross, age 10

Thanks for hosting our vacation! We loved the sunrises, Air Chair (we bought one for back home), hammock and the Internet for researching Luau times, etc. We really liked the upstairs. We loved taking pictures of the 2 islands and playing soccer in the backyard with a beach ball. The geckos were great and swaying palm trees were perfect in our pictures.

We hope to come back soon! The Ross/Wingavaer families

Special place!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Love this place,very homey and comfortable,many different little hangout areas.

I love that it is kept as a casual beach house, but has all the comforts.

Especially enjoyed the open air family room for dinners.

In the morning the little deck off the kitchen is great for sunrise coffee for the early birds .will love to come back soon!

Peaceful retreat of islands & turquoise ocean!

  • 5 of 5

Aloha, If you have read all the blogs on this property then you know its a good

choice, if you want beautiful outdoor areas to enjoy like lazing in a hammock under a coconut tree with the ocean a few feet away, or if you like swinging in a air chair thats hanging from a seagrape tree listening to the waves, if you like the smell of salty air and cool breezes, if you enjoy the amenities of your own home, if you would like to

lounge on beach chairs at night to seek the stars, watch the sunrise, moonrise or just

enjoy a quiet evening with a glass of wine, if you prefer security and privacy and quiet,

if you like the convenience of nearby restaurants, farmers market, CVS and Target stores, if you want sports equipment rentals closeby, hiking trails, water sports,

if you would like to try Obamas shaved ice, whatever you have read on any of these blogs is what you will get and more! The owner is so easy to do business with, he made it so simple and welcoming, if you have never rented a vacation beach house in hawaii, this is the one to rent. We were 5 adults and two toddlers, we all were very

comfortable and wanted for nothing, we daily enjoyed that view of the Mokulua islands and the always changing turquoise waters of lanikai bay 24 hrs a day, the children loved the beach, turtles, crabs, geckos, baby coconuts, beach toys that were available and the huge grassy backyard. We also loved the fact that we were able to enjoy a quiet dinner and evening with family, with enough outdoor space and amenities to host 13 people and several cars. If this is not a description of a peaceful retreat of quiet and turquoise waters then I dont know where else you are gonna find it.

Sincerely, returning local islanders.

Absolutely Perfect with a Million Dollar View!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 spent 8 nights in this fantastic vacation rental this spring and enjoyed every minute of it. The location of the property is perfect, right on the water with stunning views of the Mokes where we watched the sunrise every morning. Right over the wall at the back of the house you have private access to the water. We rented kayaks in Kailua and kayaked down to the house and kept the kayaks for a few days. The pill box trail was about a 15 minute from the house - we did that hike four separate times since at different times of the day, the views from up there are amazing. The house had everything we could want, we loved that so many areas of the house were outside so we could enjoy the gorgeous Hawaiian weather. And the hammock, was just pure bliss. Kailua has everything you could possible want from shops to restaurants to Whole Foods and Longs Drugs. Lanikai Beach is one of the most beautiful beaches in Oahu. We have stayed on all the islands and in many locations on Oahu and this is the first time we have said that we would come back to a location, it was just perfect. If you are looking for a peaceful and beautiful house in the best location on Oahu, this is the place for you.

The most well stocked, well thought out home. Could not have asked for anything more unless John can control the weather! Truly an amazing property, no disappointment. It took us a day or two to adjust to the long driveway in our large car, but we soon mastered the navigation. Great location, amazing swimming and watch the sunrise each and every morning. We will never forget our vacation and would return gladly.

Peaceful Island Home

  • 5 of 5

If you want resort living and to be surrounded by shopping and hordes of tourists, this place is NOT for you. If you would like a place where you can stare out at the beauty of nature for hours on end while sipping your coffee in the morning, then I would definitely recommend this place! With the beach right in front of you, it is hard to want to leave the house. The view is incredible form both bedrooms and the spacious living room. There are four outside areas to hang out in (a side yard off the kitchen, the back yard, the lanai, and this cool little covered indoor/outdoor patio area. There is a beach three doors down in each direction if you get tired of your own personal beach. Turtles swim by! The snorkeling is also not bad. With 4 adults and a 5 month old, just the washer and dryer alone made this house worth it. The house is nice but not so nice that it does not feel like home. We did not want to leave!

We have found home in Lanikai!

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing place. Our family spent a week in this amazing home. If you are looking for simple and pure island living, this is your place. This is what heaven probably looks like. We had breakfast, dinner and lunch by the water. We swam with the turtles, puffer fish and the famous Humuhumunukunukuapua’a. We paddle boarded to the Mokes right from our backyard, did acrylic paints with the locals and practiced full moon yoga at the beach. Just a few of the activities available. The place has something for everyone. The owner was incredibly friendly and attentive to our needs. The neighbors (both locals) were welcoming. We are definitely coming back here! A happy family from Portland, OR
