Lanikai House Rental Photos and Description
House, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)
Aloha and E komo mai. Welcome to Hale Sweet Hale, our “Home Sweet Home.” Once a private, multi-generation family residence, this charming dwelling built in 1939 is lovingly cared for by the original kama’aina, (local) family and is now offered for your enjoyment.
Entering upon a lava rock driveway, this home strikes a nostalgic note with its sprawling lawn and double gable roof. Original family pavers lead you inside to experience this historic one of a kind, charming Hawaiian beach house.
This home has three bedrooms and one bath. The rooms are light and airy with 10-foot high ceilings and original crown moldings throughout. The décor and ambiance merges informality with elegance reminiscent of past generations of local gentry who truly lived the "good life". The embracing feeling of the home can be felt in the vintage style bark cloth cushions and chairs that truly invite you to relax and read a book.
In the uniquely appointed bedrooms, lovely colors and simple accents encourage tranquility and family togetherness.
Our Home is merely steps away from one of the most stunningly beautiful beaches in Hawaii’i, just waiting for you to frolic in.
Truly a charming experience, please make yourself at home and enjoy Hale Sweet Hale as generations before have done.

Guestbook comments from the manager
The location was great. It was less than a 5 mins walk to the most beautiful beach in Oahu (in my opinion)! It was a fantastic location for a low-key vacation and away from all the hustle of Honolulu/Waikiki area. My dad fished at the shore, my nephew swam at the beach, and my husband and I layed out everyday. It was about a 30 mins drive to Waikiki and the touristy area. The house itself was quaint. It was hard at times with 6 people and 1 bathroom. The kitchen was somewhat spacious with 2 dining room tables. There are 2 small TV's in the house - but, when you're in Hawaii, do you really want to spend time watching TV? :)
There's a hike in Lanikai, the Pill Box, great hike with great views. We ate at Zippy's a couple times.. it's convenient, yummy, and cheap.
