KING KAMEHAMEHA THE GREAT'S FAMILY STAYS HERE AT OLD HAWAII

Lanikai House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Detached Unit, 1.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 6)

30 days or longer tenancies only, please.

King Kamehameha the Great's family has chosen 'Old Hawaii' to be their Hawaii vacation house. We are honored and delighted to be selected.

At Old Hawaii Plantation Beach House and Guest Cottage in Lanikai, we extend to all our guests the old fashioned Hawaiian Hospitality, and the famous Spirit of Aloha.

Step back in time to the romance, the charm, that is truly 'Old Hawaii.'

Hawaiian quilts on the beds, lauhala mats on the floors, native plants and flowers in the gardens. Plantation ceiling fans add to the aura of Old Hawaii. This treasure is available for you to enjoy.

You can relax on this heavenly tropical beach, or on the lanai overlooking the expansive grassy lawn. Listen to the soft music of the trade winds in the coconut palms. Enjoy nostalgic Lanikai, as it was since time immemorial, before the rest of the world discovered it.

This kama'aina beach hale was built by our family in 1931. It is an authentic Plantation home, located on prestigious Mokulua Drive, offering the comfort and ambience of Old Hawaii, but with all the modern conveniences, including WiFi for your Internet connection.

There are two bedrooms in the main hale and another bedroom in the detached ohana, a second Plantation cottage on the property, INCLUDED in the rental. There are two outdoor dining areas.

There is a new stove, a new refrigerator/freezer, a new microwave oven, and a new washer and dryer.

This is a family friendly, kid friendly home, with lots of beach toys.

A two-person, fully equipped kayak is waiting there for you!

You will be located across the street from beautiful Lanikai beach, named the best beach in the world by the Travel T V Channel.

A Perfect Holiday

  • 5 of 5
One of the best kept secrets on the island is "Old Hawaii". It is truly a wonderful place to stay in Lanikai.

The Hale was as described, pictures a true likeness. The kitchen has all you need, full equipped. I especially appreciated all the extra's that everyone had left behind. Made use of some and left what I had, hoping that the next people coming in could make use of them.

WiFi was wonderful to have, making it easy to get in touch with the owners, and to connect back home with family and friends.

The bikes, although getting on in age ( like the rest of us) were put to good use. Since we did not have a car rental, we used the bikes as our transportation, along with the great bus system!! The bus stop is located just across the street, and The Bus, #70, can have you in the little town of Kailua within 10 minutes. If you are a walker, and want to walk to Kailua Beach, that will take about 20 minutes......that is.....if you should ever want to leave the gorgeous Lanika Beach area.

Our thanks to Jean and Doug for sharing their Lanika home with us. A perfect holiday! Would we return.......absolutely....YES!

Paradise for Sure

  • 5 of 5
How wonderful this hale is ! We could not have had a more authentic Hawaiian experience than our stay this April in Lanikai.

The house lacks for nothing - comfy linens, fully equipped kitchen, closets and storage; 3 TVs-DVD+CDplayers+WiFi-; kayak, snorkels, toys and abundant sunshine. A 2 minute walk to the beach and several beaches to pick from ! All you need to bring is your bathing suit !

We came from the mainland to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary at this hale in Lanikai with our children, grandkids and friends. The kids played in the fenced yard; we played badminton and frisbee and flew toy airplanes on the big green lawn - it must be a third of an acre; and BBQ'd almost every evening. We did eat out at Teddy's for burgers and Cinnamon’s for breakfast a couple of times in Kailua, but really would never have had to even get in the car ! The kayak came in very handy - a quick trip to the Mokulua Islands by the hardy ones. And the hardy ones took a short hike to the top of the hill to see the WWII gun turrets . History is displayed at this hale with photos from the very early days before and during WWII.

The flora and beaches are just too beautiful - a photographer's dream. This side of Oahu is Hawaii's best kept secret.

We actually enjoyed doing laundry here ! Pack light and use the W/D !

Thank you once again,Jean and Doug, for letting us rest and enjoy your piece of paradise. Everything, was as last year...maybe better. Sure felt like home to us. We will be back, for sure!

If you are looking for a place to stay in Lanikai, this is it. As I say that, I wonder if I should be telling everyone about how great it is. The site suggests a car rental, but for the second year, we did without one. If you are able to walk, or bike, forget the car. The Bus comes right across the road, and hop on, and you are in Kailua in minutes....or go onward to Honolulu...in less than an hour. Buzz's restaurant is at Kailua Beach, and if you take the 7:20 pm bus (last bus), in for dinner, you will have to walk home. No bus service in Lanikai after that. A wonderful walk, 25 min., in the warm evening breeze. How great is that! Don't worry about not being able to see where you are going, as the street lights, lite your way home .....to Old Hawaii.

Owner's Response: Little did we realize, in 2006, when we decided to list our old family beach house on VRBO, that we would meet so many interesting people from all over the world! And that they would become friends whom we admire and respect.
Most of our guests are well seasoned travelers, and many are former residents of Hawaii, who want to recapture their happy times of the past in the "Paradise of the Pacific." Many are our neighbors in Lanikai who need a place for visiting family to stay.
We are grateful to our guests for writing their reviews, and we look forward to welcoming them back at anytime in the future.

82 year old plantation home in need of updating

  • 2 of 5
My wife and I stayed at the mini-plantation house (approx. 834 sq. feet main house, approx. 400 sq. feet cottage) from 10/1/13 to 10/21/13. We were scheduled to stay until 11/1/13, but the home became much too uncomfortable to stay for our entire paid vacation. Let me state the pros and cons of this home:
Pros:
1) Great location. Across the street lies the beautiful Pacific Ocean. Lanikai's sandy beach is not directly across from the home. You will need to walk about 1/4 mile north to access the sandy beach portion. You can access the ocean through a walkway access path about 100 yards from the home, good for launching the kayak, but there is no sandy beach to enjoy.
2) Large yard, good for families with children.
3) Nice covered patio out front to enjoy outdoor weather. There are 2 tables with 8 chairs and a rocker.
4) Extra Cottage in back of home, sleeps 2 people on a twin bed. Approximately 400 square feet. Comes with toilet, no shower inside of cottage, but there is an outdoor shower if your adventurous.
5) Plenty of towels, pots, pans, dishes, cups, silverware. Mini microwave oven, hand can opener, newer appliances (about 2 years old), washer/dryer outdoors in back.
6) Plenty of older beach chairs, snorkeling equipment, boogie boards, 3 older bicycles, and a heavy kayak with detachable wheels to roll it to the beach access path. Cons:1) Home is very old and outdated. That would be okay, if the furnishings were newer and comfortable, but the couches were extremely old and not fun to sit on. The sitting chairs were also tortuous to use for any amount of time. The television was very small and hard to watch in its cabinet.
2) The queen bed in the master bedroom was horrible and unsleepable. It caved into the middle immediately upon laying down on it. We switched to the twin bed in the cottage, just about as bad. Very hard to sleep on mattress' that are well beyond their useful life expectancy.
3) Pillows were unsanitary. I bought a new one. Owner reimbursed me for that.
4) Overall cleanliness was poor. Surfaces not clean, gunk in silverware draws, around garbage can, mildew on shower curtain, leaking faucet in bathroom and kitchen faucet hard to turn off. Shower drain backed up with every use.
5) Bug problem in the home. This was the final straw. When we encountered one too many cockroaches, we left early. We did not ask for a partial refund, and none was offered. If the problems were fixed, a decent play to stay.

Owner's Response: We very much regret that you did not tell us about this in a timely manner, especially with our managers right next door, so that things could have been put right, and you could have enjoyed the rest of your time in Lanikai. Everything in the house now has been returned to very good order once again.

Wonderful home

  • 5 of 5
My family spent five weeks in this vacation home. This is a wonderful home for a family vacation near the beach. Plenty of space to spread out and the ohana out back is handy. It is very rare to have this much land around a house in Lanikai. The view at the beach is stunning. There is a beach/water access almost across the street from the property. The "sand" beach (much more crowded) is about 1/8th of a mile from the property. During low tide you can practically walk to it in the water across the street. The bikes were fun to ride and the kayak-perfect! The owner is fantastic to deal with and very responsive. Also, the manager lives next door and she was great and her family is lovely. We used to live in Hawaii and we really enjoyed this Hawaiian home near the beach. Mahalo Jean and Doug!!

More than a vacation but a feeling of being part of Old Hawaii

  • 5 of 5
I want to thank you so much for the wonderful time at your Hale. It was fantastic. Yes, it was everything you'd hope to happen in Hawaii...lots of sun, a great beach, time to relax. But it was a lot more for us and it's taken me a couple of days to really put it in words. I had a hard time conveying what it was, until I decided not to use actions for my thoughts but my feelings. I felt as if we were connected to a part of Hawaii that a lot of tourists don't ever get to be a part of...it really was Old Hawaii. Perhaps it was because I know the history of the cottage or it was because of seeing all those old photos you've put on the walls (love the one of you as a baby, as a stewardess and of course, of Shirley Temple and you!), or just because of that history, those photos and where the cottage is located, I had a greater experience of just hanging at the beach. Your cottage is special, Jean, and I am utterly grateful for having spent the time there.
