Paradise in Lanikai
This is truly a magical place. my sister and I shared the cottage and could not have asked for more. Everything you could need is here. Lynn is so very helpful and generous of her time and resources. We loved the garden, the ability to walk to the beach and private easements. Our local family was able to visit in the lovely garden. Don't miss out on the incredible outdoor shower! We can't wait to return to this wonderful place. Mahalo Nui Lynn
An amazing week . . . thank you!
The bungalow is my "go to" place when I need some time near the water. This time I brought lots of family, who stayed in various rentals on Oahu, and we had an amazing time. I can't say enough about Lynn and her family, and ... WOO HOO!! the Lanikai Loop had very restricted parking over Labor Day weekend so we had full run of the beach and the loop! Definitely coming back. Oh, and Dirk, the owner's son, is a kayak guide who can set you up for a paddle to the Mokus.
Lynn's Cottage in Lanikai ! Oahu's best...
While the island of Oahu is full of lodging choices, we narrowed down our base to Lanikai. What a wonderful place; away from Waikiki's buzz, yet a short drive to visit, as well as a short distance to the North Shore and all the great beaches and sights along both ways.
And then we found a nice and cozy paradise within Lanikai at Lynn's cottage. It is as laid back as it is well furnished. Lynn and her family are the ideal hosts. Friendly, helpful and very respectful of your privacy at the same time. We used the bikes, the beach chairs, the towels, the coolers, and even had some of the delicious star fruit in season on their yard. We enjoyed the outside table so much that not only we would have breakfast there every morning but we would bring back take out instead of eating at the restaurant. The AC, shower pressure, kitchen and utensils all worked great.
Overall, if you want a stay as close to the local experience, with all the convenience of your own beach house, Lynn's is the place to stay.
Dirk, Michelle, Cash and Lynn... thank you so much for a wonderful stay. I want to go back soon !!
Delightful and Quiet
The cottage was quiet, clean, comfortable, and had everything I needed. Outside the cottage door was a sitting area that was private due to the vegetation surrounding it. The ocean was a block and 1/2 away; and Kailua Bay was an easy 1+ mile walk. The owner, son and daughter in-law were all very pleasant, and helpful. I would definitely recommend it.
Ocean cottage, home away from home!
We absolutely loved our stay in this cozy cottage which had everything we needed! Besides enjoying local restaurants, after one quick to get local groceries, we enjoyed cooking easy meals for breakfast and dinners in the cottage too - everything we needed was there. Breakfast we enjoyed on the patio with the beautiful garden and the huge variety of flowers and birds were amazing. Lynn and Dirk were very friendly and answered all our questions (and there were many) about all the local great hot spots and tips and tricks on the island for getting around, enjoying the beaches (away from heavy tourist locaitons), and the best times of day or evening to do certain things. We enjoyed establishing our own routine while there, and borrowing the bikes and beach gear and just loved walking "home" from the beach to our little cottage away from home.
Thank you so much Lynn, and we will definitely be coming back again!
perfect location, friendly owner
Being from Los angeles, I wanted to be away from the craziness of Honolulu. This is definitely the perfect stay for me and my husband! It is a back house, with the owner living in the front. Lynn, her son, and daughter gave us our privacy, and at the same time was available for us whenever we had questions about hikes and things to do. The place was enough for 2 people, but can easily fit more since there are couches. The bikes was convenient to take to the beach/ town. the beach access was about 2-3 houses down, but the nice sandy Lanikai beach was about 5-10 minute walk. Her son helped us with the kayak rental, and even helped us get into the kayak and lent us his bag to put stuff in. The house had everything we needed; from kitchenware to shower stuff. the outdoor shower is very nice, since we went to the beach almost every day. it is in the town of kailua; where everything is mainly closed by 8-9pm, and the streets get dark. It is a safe and nice neighborhood. I recommend this place if you want a nice little quiet gettaway that is short walk to the beach!
very clean, no bug issue. ac available but we never had to turn it on. the ceiling fan was enough!
