Welcome to Lanikai Surf Hale! Just 200m from beautiful Kailua beach!
We are located in the quiet neighborhood of Lanikai, on the windward side of Oahu. Lanikai is just 20 minutes drive from Honolulu and Waikiki and just steps from Kailua beach where you will find 3 miles of the world's most amazing beach. A five minute drive will take you to Kailua town where you will find an assortment of restaurants and shops. The beaches offer kayaking, boogie boarding, surfing, windsurfing, kite surfing, snorkeling, and beachcombing. We provide boogie boards, 2 sets of fins, masks and snorkels. Kayak rentals are a 10 minute walk away at Windward WaterSports. The beach is also a great place to watch the sunrise over the ocean and set behind the spectacular Koolau mountains .
If you are interested in fitness, we have 2 beach cruisers and Kailua has many different bike paths. You can walk, jog, or bike all around Kailua! Come and experience the peace and tranquility of our side of the island.
You will stay in a private cottage with it's own front and back entrance. The cottage has a queen bed and a comfy fold out futon. Don't want to eat out every night? Surf Hale has a full kitchen stocked with everything you need to make a home-cooked island meal along with several island cook books to choose your favorite local dish! The bedroom/living area has hardwood floors and plenty of storage for your belongings. Step out to your private lanai and relax or BBQ. The cottage also has wireless internet, fax machine, printer(upon request), hair dryer, iron, coffee maker and a bag of Hawaiian coffee, toaster and a washer dryer is available to use for $3 a load (includes soap & softener).

What a lovely place to stay, next to the most beautiful beach I have ever seen! We picked the perfect location for a much needed girls getaway. Thank you for your hospitality! You made our stay so completely enjoyable. All the best to your darling family!
This place is all about the location. The walk to beautiful Kailua Beach Park is under 5 minutes and it is FANTASTIC!! Carly and Jeff were more than helpful with places to go and things to do and Jeff was a great help in renting Kayaks for a day. Everything you need for a day at the beach is already there!! The place is nice and private and everything is plenty comfortable. We did not use the kitchen much but it was certainly an adequate place to cook a couple of meals. Thank you Carly and Jeff we had such a wonderful time!!
I recently had the opportunity to extend a business trip and invite my small family along with me. This was our third and final location of the trip, and turned our trip into a vacation. We first stayed at a hotel in Waikiki (due to business needs), then an Air BNB location in Kaneohe Bay area (great view - but that was all). Landing at the Surf Hale, and having the guidance of Carly and Jeff was just what we needed.
Connecting with Carly was easy and timely. Working with her either by text or e-mail we sorted the whole thing out, and got payment arranged via PayPal which was convenient also.
The photos and description are accurate, the only difference is that some of the furniture was moved around. All in all it was very convenient and comfortable. There were three of us (myself, my wife, and 7 year old son) and it fit well. The kitchen wasn't huge, but right sized to let us create small meals easily. The walk to the beach was 5 minutes at most to Kailua Beach Park (seems like local hang out, with decent waves for the little grommets), and maybe another 3-5 minutes if you want to head to Lanikai Beach (highly recommended for snorkeling and floating... and just sun soaking). We were a short 5 minute drive from downtown Kailua.
We also discovered that her comment about local "wildlife" was accurate as well. We spotted any number of lizards and geckos (my son was pretty excited about that), and had a regular cardinal come and sing to us on the patio in the morning. We should have paid more attention to the comment, and not left our bananas out through the night. It seems that local mice appreciate bananas and one helped himself to about half of a banana. We didn't see him or have anything else nibbled on for the remainder of the trip, so I guess he got his fill.
We didn't use the kitchen too much, because Carly and Jeff guided us to a few good spots for food. The first was Kalapawai Cafe. You could get small meals, easy stuff for kids (including PB&J), or something more exotic and island focused (like striped marlin over lemongrass risotto). We also tried out Cactus, a (light?) Mexican restaurant that had island flavor. Not sure exactly how I'd classify it, but when we return to the area we'll go there again. Last we went to Kailua General Store for light fluffy shave ice.
If we find ourselves back on Oahu we'll definitely seek out Carly and Jeff to see if the Surf Hale is available. Great spot to relax and enjoy.
My boyfriend and I recently stayed for a week at the Surf Hale and it was absolutely perfect! The place is very private and very relaxed. Kitchen had all the tools you would need and plenty of extras throughout the place like books, dvds, extra linens/towels, hair dryer, bbq stuff, beach equipment, and on. Past guest leave behind personal tips and 'must do' lists, so you have a connection on the local activities. Comfy bed and cute living area.
Carly and Jeff were very warm and welcoming, and respectful of privacy. Their whole "family" was wonderful and adorable.
Five minute walk to breathtakingly beautiful beaches of all varieties (family friendly calm waters and snorkeling to more athletic waves). For a relaxed vacation away from the overly touristy areas, definitely stay here! You can shop local boutiques in Kailua shopping center, or take the Pillbox hike to watch the sunrise over the beach.
Everything you need is within walking/biking distance. Not to mention all the locals are kind and fun to interact with.
I can't say enough good things about the Surf Hale and area itself. We'll definitely be returning in the future.
