What makes this studio unique

This property has one of the best views in Lanikai! Short walk to Lanikai beach, quiet, and naturally cool most of the time.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Words cannot describe how wonderful Lois' place is, especially for the value, but I'll try. First, the location is easily the best spot in Lanikai, let alone Oahu altogether. The view is stunning, and the accessibility to Lanikai beach, Kailua and surrounding attractions makes this spot ideal for your desire to explore the island. BUT, we didn't because you simply cannot find a better "perch" on the island. In fact, most people we met around town and on the beach made this destination spot for a day, and left wondering "why don't we just stay here the whole time"? Enter our 7 day stay. First, Lois is a wonderful person and great host. Reminder, this is her home and permanent residence, thus it is (I believe) equally important to be mindful and respectful as guests (this probably holds true in most aspects of life). That being said, most of the time you felt like you had much of the property to yourself (includes the pool, your room, and a separate studio-like area with lots of extras). The bed is comfortable, the bathroom is clean and roomy, and even thought the sunrise and sunset are bar-none the best thing to do, Lois does provide wireless internet and cable t.v. Access to the beach is 3 blocks away, albeit I am lazy, so I chose to use are rental car. Lois provides you use of the washer and dryer, and the rec room is equipped with microwave, refrigerator, toaster oven, hot plate, coffee maker...and even gives you fresh eggs from her chickens and filtered drinking water as needed. I loved not having to pack beach towels, snorkeling gear, coolers, and other beach items because they are all provided. Anyone would be hard pressed to find a better accommodation and location for the price, not to re-mention what a great host Lois was. We also had our own parking spot, which is RARE in Lanikai. Again, words cannot describe the views, especially as your toes are dancing in the beautiful pool. I took a video from the patio where we watched the sunrise every morning. You can find it on youtube searching under Panoramic view of Lanikai Bay. This is what you'll see if you are fortunate enough to break away for vacation, and Lois' rental is available. Rani and I thank you again for a spectacular time "doing nothing". It was the best!!!!!

So much better than we ever expected

  • 5 of 5

My wife & I both loved our week at this beautiful place in Lanikai after spending a week on the west side of the Island. It was simply amazing. The ocean view from the kitchen & adjacent patio area is breathtaking to say the least, with the islands of Moku Nui & Moku Iki out in the distance making it doubly awe-inspiring. We were a little worried about downgrading to a queen-sized bed but it was actually quite comfortable & we both slept extremely well. The bathroom was very clean & spacious & the walk-in shower with its 'rain shower-head' was a welcomed relief after a long day of exploring the Island & the nearby beaches. Lois was an extremly gracious host & provided everything one could possibly need to have an amazing day at the beach or wherever an adventure would take you. The walk down the hill to Lanikai beach is very easy & the beach is wonderful but do not miss Kailua beach as it is one of the best, if not 'The Best' beach on the Island, well, that is if you are not looking for huge waves & just want to have some fun in the water. Again, a wonderful & amazing place.

Views + Comfort=PRICELESS!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, children and I have had the priviledge of staying on this property for many years! This year however it is just the two of us and we will be staying HERE instead of the larger rental. It has everything the two of us need and the pool is a BONUS! I've recently helped my friends try to find another similar place to stay in Lanikai (because we are all going to be there at the same time) but nothing compares to this! The view is priceless!! PRICELESS! Sunrises and moonrises are breathtaking. I know right where I'm gonna sit and watch them! Lois is always accommodating and awesome. Both of her rentals are fully stocked with everything a visitor needs to enjoy the beaches. It's a quick walk to Lanikai beach and Kailua Beach. When my husband and I first saw this rental we knew we would be perfectly happy here! You just can't beat the location, the views, comfort, the price and the awesome owner!

A gorgeous place to hang and relax

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed a week stay at Lois' beautiful home overlooking Lanikai Beach. Having lived in Lanikai for two years, it was great to get back there and our accommodations were wonderful. The bed was very comfy and the room very clean. The attached garage and lani was perfect for morning coffee and making breakfast. Lois had beach towels, beach chairs, and coolers available for us to take to the beach. We also had access to the washer and dryer. I sat most mornings by her pool drinking my coffee and watching the glorious sunrise over the Moks. I would highly recommend this place as it is a quick walk to Lanikai Beach and beautiful walk to Kailua Beach and Park. We also walked to Buzz's for dinner one night which is a must if you are staying at Lois' home. Lois is very sweet and we enjoyed her home and we will surely go back to stay.

Breathtaking view from this gorgeous location!

  • 5 of 5

Unbelievably beautiful views, quaint, comfortable and relaxing studio and bonus room, as well as beautiful and private pool. Everything needed for a lovely vacation, along with all the amenities for home and beach. Lois, the owner, is very nice and accommodating, and we enjoyed chatting with her too. Situated perfectly close to the beach, a nice walk for the fitness folks, and a two minute easy drive for those of us who prefer to drive. So nice to have an opportunity to vacation in such a lovely home and location.

Terrific stay in Lanikai!

  • 5 of 5

Just spent 2 great weeks at Lois’s in Lanikai. Breathtaking views, lovely salt water pool, and cozy accommodations. Did I mention the best beach in Oahu is just a short walk down the hill. Lois is a very nice homeowner/host. All beach toys and anything you will need are there. Loved having a full size fridge with freezer. (Made less stops to the grocery store that way.)

Enjoyed the privacy on the lanai.

Very interesting hike to pillboxes, which is the view from straight up the hill behind the house. Nice bedroom, with big bathroom. Comfy bed. Great to have a washer and dryer to use. Buzz’s Restaurant is 5 minutes away, (went there numerous times, but you should make reservations it is super busy every night). Would definitely stay here again, when we go back to Lanikai!
