Just bring your laptop computer. Covered parking: Drive up, park your car and open the door to the Lanikai Vacation Home.
Thank you doesn't seem to express enough how much we appreciated our home away from home. From our later than anticipated arrival and your gracious welcome, to the thoughtful touches and very comfortable beds - we felt like we were home.
Of course, Lanikai is the best spot and so friendly, safe, welcoming and quiet that we don't want to leave! The fruit, coffee and chocolate were delicious.
If you're ever headed to Kodiak, Alaska, please look us up!

after one week in crowded and busy honolulu, we really enjoyed the calm and relaxing atmosphere of lanikai and kailua.
the studio is located very close to the beach and well equiped for our family of 4 people.
we enjoyed the evening rest in the lanai, and the kids had fun on the swimming pool after spending the day at the beach.
Lanikai and Kailua beaches are beautiful : ideal for kids (no waves) and we enjoyed snorkeling in the crystal-clear water (turtles showed everyday)
Teresa is a great owner and we appeciated her kindness
We stayed for a little over a month and found the studio to be quiet, clean, comfortable and quaint. It was just as described and it had all of the necessities we needed to make our visit enjoyable. The kitchen had a nice assortment of appliances and utensils so that if we chose to eat in rather than out, it was easy and relaxing. Most days we chose to pack a lunch in the cooler that was on hand, and were able to take advantage of the local farmer's markets to get fresh fruits and veggies to take with us.
Being so close to Lanikai beach was a pleasure as we could get up at dawn and take a short stroll down to the beach to watch the sunrise or spend the day at the beach without having to worry about finding parking along the street.
I grew up in Kailua and being in the close-knit Lanikai community was a pleasure as the residents are quiet, friendly, helpful and outgoing. Teresa was an excellent host, both friendly and gracious,and went out of her way to make sure that everything was okay and that we had everything we needed.
We were able to enjoy the Lanikai Ridge Pillbox trail, the Moanalua Valley Trail, and a nice hike around Kaena Point as well as watching several surfing competions and some less crowded and sleepier (but gorgeous) beaches like Laie and Waimanalo. We went back to several of our favorite restaurants like, Buzz's Steakhouse, Kalapawai Deli and Kua Aina Burger, but found several new ones as well; The Pig and the Lady, Sweet Home Waimanalo, The Honolulu Burger Company and Cactus. For fun we ate at the Thursday night Farmers Market in Kailua Town one evening.
All in all, it was a great visit and we would definately return. The unit was clean, comfortable, quiet, secure, had onsite parking and was located in a beautiful enviornment. Our host was friendly, gracious and considerate.

I grew up in Kailua. To say it was just like being home is an understatement! Theresa was the perfect hostess for our family. Our 9 year old couldn't have been more thrilled to share the pool, the beach and the fantastic back door BBQ. I couldn't have been any more comfortable. Every need more than met and I would recommend to anyone! In fact, I'm coming back sooner than I thought because of this and I hope it will be available. Just like home and perfect for 3.
The place was perfect for a couple. It had all that you need to start living life ie. the kitchen had all supplies; the owner even left a basket of fruit and organic coffee. The laundry in-unit was clean and laundry soap was supplied - unbelievable considerate. The studio came with private parking and the private pool was so perfect. And if the beach is what you want, very nice beaches in walking distance or a short car ride. And don't forget to visit Buzz's, really great service and very good food.
This place is incredible. My mother, my daughters, and myself stayed there for 10 days and it was a 5 min walk to Lanakai Beach. The snorkeling there was incredible. If Hanauma is a 10 to you, then this would be an 8. The suite was clean, smelled great, was nice and naturally or artificially breezy if you chose, was in a beautiful location, and was more than we expected. I’ll admit, we were nervous sending the payment as a Money Order through the mail for the discount, but Teresa’s as honest and kind as humans come. We were 200% satisfied with this place, and the girls absolutely loved it too! Nice and safe area where you could let the kids go out and explore without worry. Day two back from vacation, and I’ve already got three other friends looking into it ?. Mahalo Teresa!
While Teresa is a lovely person, and she is gracious and welcoming, her rental is a converted garage shop with extremely poor insulation. The ventilation is quite poor. You can hear the tenant who lives above your island getaway blow her nose, hear the beeps of the microwave, the blasting tv... and the sounds go past 11 pm and can start as early as 5 am. The inside of the rental is wonderful but this is only a good choice if you don't mind a third party (upstairs tenant) as party of your stay., and you don't mind not having a view, and very little natural lighting inside. Teresa will not give you a refund based if you are dissatisfied. I wish I could be more encouraging but this was our experience.
Other Activities: Just one block from our driveway to the nearest Lanikai Beach right-of-way & three small blocks to the large Lanikai Beach; kayaking, boating, parasailing, biking, health/beauty spa; Lanikai Park with basketball court & swings.
