Lanikai Loft is located across the street from the most scenic beach in the US and is like living in the trees with a wonderful view of the mountains, yard and partial ocean view. Access to swimming and kayaking is just across the street. The Mokulua Islands are just a short paddle (20 minutes) away. We have kayaks for rent on site and free bicycles. We also have a guide onsite who can give you a tour of the islands. The ridge hike (also 20 minutes) gives you a great view of the entire area from Lanikai to Kailua.
The loft design is a complete one bedroom apt and is very open with lots of windows. There is a view from almost any window and very good cross ventilation to take advantage of the ocean breezes. There are three sliding doors onto the lanais. We have two lanais to take advantage of for lounging and eating. The bathroom is large and has a soaking bathtub. The bedroom is also large and private from the rest of the unit. The loft is sitting above and off to the side of the house and is entirely private with an entrance under the carport. The property has a photovoltaic system which captures the sunlight to provide electricity for the whole facility. There is no carbon footprint. The flooring is bamboo and has area carpets as coverings. The laundry area is downstairs. Most of the beach necessities - umbrella, chairs, coolers beach towels etc. are available. Owner is onsite to meet all needs. This is a non smoking residence.
We offer grocery service to those who would like to have amenities/food upon arrival. Please ask owner for more information.
We have reserved off street parking for one car. The bus stop is across the street. There is a walking, bike path across the street which circles the community of Lanikai (about 2 miles).
The closest town (Kailua) is about 2 miles away and is a very comfortable town for walking and shopping. There are lots of restaurants, grocery stores and a department store.
I have a one bedroom cottage located on the backside of the property. It is very private and has it's own yard. If you book both properties you could accomodate two parties of a total of 6 people. The other property is Lanikai Bungalow vrbo 45505.
Keywords: One bedroom apartment., views, beautiful garden, near world class beach, One bath with large tub and shower and full kitchen.
I raised my children in the house located on the property and have lived in Lanikai since 1977. I love hosting guests as it is a very enriching experience and made several friends as a result.
Lynn Lundquist purchased this apartment in 1980
This has been my home since 1980 and the loft was built onto the top of the existing house in 2001.
Kailua is a fun town to spend time in. There are lots of good restaurants, antique shops and many interesting mom-and-pop businesses. The ocean sports are world class. Especially fun is exploring the three islands that are off-shore. The ridge hike gives guests an instant feeling of place since it has a view in any direction. The Lanikai loop is about 2-1/2 miles and there is a dedicated walking biking path so it is very convenient and safe to walk, bike, or run.
Thank you for our wonderful stay at your charming rental this past week. My sister and I had a very relaxing time together with lots of talking, laughing, reading and just enjoying beautiful Lanikai. Your yard is lovely - what a treat to be able to sit and relax in such a beautiful setting. We really appreciate the friendliness of you and your family. Everyone was so nice and welcoming, including your dog and cat. We loved our stay and weren't ready to leave but we will definitely be back
We had lovely 10-day stay and almost perfect 85F weather. The loft has a wonderful porch looking east -- great place to relax at the end of the day.
Lynn, Michelle, Dirk and Junior (the dog) were perfect hosts and made us feel welcome. Great location near beaches and Kailua downtown (especially Whole Foods and Farmers Market). We were able to cook most of our meals -- which made the trip both economical and food-choice healthy.
The loft was clean and full of light (lots of windows). Off street parking was available. As the VRBO ad indicates --- you can use the various beach gear (chairs, etc.). Laundry facilities were excellent -- and essential after a day at the beach.
This is our second stay on this property and again it was a great time. Plan on coming back again as soon as possible. Lynn,Derrick, Michelle, Cash and Junior the Dog are all so helpful!!!
Beautiful setting. Perfect location near one of the world's best beaches - our favorite (Lanikai). Bathroom and closet space small and no dishwasher, but having 2 lanais makes up for it. Gorgeous wood floors and lovely bedroom. Enjoyed it.
This loft apartment is everything it claims to be! Lynn has a unique and beautiful decorating style. The bamboo floors and tropical decor are lovely. The lanais are perfect for relaxing, reading, or just enjoying the tradewinds and the sunrise/sunset. The apartment is even nicer than the photos appear and is fully equipped for preparing your own meals. If you prefer to go out, there are several nice restaurants nearby in Kailua. Lynn, Dirk, and Michelle, are pleasant and accommodating hosts. Dirk was especially helpful with suggestions for kayaking and outdoor activities. Everything we needed for the beach was provided...beach towels, chairs, mats, umbrella, cooler, etc. This was the perfect vacation and we look forward to returning someday!
This is by far the best spot on Oahu. Swimming before breakfast and kayaking out to the Moku islands was pure delight. The loft was comfortable and the garden below lovely.
Our Christmas in Paradise was absolutely AWESOME!! We spent 10 nights in the loft and found it to be a FANTASTIC stay in Paradise! Lynn was so very nice and full of information about the area. Michelle put some lovely Christmas touches inside and outside the loft as she knew we were bringing a 4 year old with us. Yes....Santa does come to Hawaii too!! We had a small New Year's Eve get together with family at the loft and Lynn set us up with her BBQ Grill and home grown fruit to go along too!! Loft was just as pictured, clean, and so well maintained! Having the availability of the washer and dryer meant we went home with no clothes to wash!! Thanks so much for everything we needed for a day at the beach or sight seeing. You had us covered for all our needs with your stocked up beach supply sheds. We can't wait to come back again and enjoy the Loft in Paradise once again. Hoping to see y'all again later this fall!!! Until then....ALOHA!
