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!!!!!

Amazing view & stay

We loved our stay here. The room and property are exactly as described with no surprises. As other reviewers have noted, the driveway is a steep walk... to a heartbreakingly beautiful view! Only issue we ran into was that the wifi router needed to be reset (same thing happens at home) and we did not realize it was in the room so asked Lois to do it. Lois not only reset it for us, she moved it out of the room in case it needed to happen again. The rec room is super fun and there are lots of beach accessories around. Lois is a lovely host & it is a lovely rental. We hope to be back soon. :)

Lovely Restful Comfortable

  • 5 of 5
Lois was a most hospitable host! The property sits perched above Lanikai on the hill overlooking Lanikai homes and the lovely beach. The view is spectacular. The property is a terrific value! The bedroom is clean, comfortable, simply but tastefully decorated. The bathroom is equally simple, clean, and more than serves one or two guests adequately. The separate 'garage' conversion contains a full kitchen with appliances for your cooking needs. There is an even lovlier small patio in front of the garage, private and perfect for watching the sunrise over the Mokes while you sip your coffee. If you are nice, Lois might even bring you some freshly laid eggs from her chickens! Internet is included. My new home away from home the next time I visit Lanikai (the best beach on Oahu!).

You will love staying here. The view is the highlight with the Mokes and lots of bright green ocean in front of you. The accommodations are perfect for two. All you need for casual cooking. The bedroom and bathroom are very nice and spacious. We were there for an extended time period and it all worked out well. We got to know the owner and her pets. A very welcome, homey, and friendly atmosphere.
If we are back in Lanikai, this is the place we will want to stay.

Just as advertised

My husband and I stayed there for 5 nights. Everything was true to the pictures. Every morning we sit on the sitting area and watch the sunrise during breakfast. We had access to private laundry which is essential in Hawaii. Both Kailua Lanikai Beach are close by. Lois was very nice to us. We had a wonderful trip. Highly recommended!

Stunning is an understatement, try mindblowing!!!

Wonderful view of lanikai. Great pool. Snorkling gear, boogie boards, beach towels. It was awesome to get up, go into the garage bonus area, do some yoga, make some breakfast, and watch beautiful sunrises everyday. Lanikai beach is great for kayaking, canoeing, and kite surfing. Short drives to get to everywhere else on the island. The owner was extremely friendly, easy going, and a pleasure to work with. We plan and returning, again, again, and hopefully, again!!!

Jaw dropping views and easy living

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I had been to the island before and stayed in Waikiki but this time we wanted a more relaxed and local experience. That is exactly what we got when we stayed at Lanikai Ocean View. When we got out of the car and looked out at the water and islands we just stopped and stared and then laughed. "I can't believe we are staying here!" Lois was kind and considerate and we felt very comfortable hanging out on the property. The room is a little small but we had full use of the bonus room where we cooked a lot and did yoga with looking at the water. We swam in the pool almost everyday and it was amazing. The room also came with boogies boards, a fridge full of condiments and everything we need to explore the island. Snorkel mask and fins which we used daily, Beach towels, sunblock and bug spray, a cooler and ice packs a beach bag and a binder full of ideas of where to eat and what to do. We would stay there again in a heart beat, Mahalo Lois for your sharing your amazing home with us!
