Overview

Lanikai House Rental Photos and Description

Views & Tradewinds at Cozy Cottage on a Hill, Minutes to World's 'Best Beaches'

The panoramic views of Kailua town and Enchanted Lake are amazing every time you step outside onto the wraparound lanai or look out its large windows. The cottage is clean, bright and airy, lit by skylights, and cooled from trade winds. Relax and enjoy your vacation in our quiet neighborhood away from all the hustle and bustle of Waikiki for a much better value driven price!

Built in 2002, this is a standard 2 bedroom, 2 bath cottage has approximately 1300 sq. ft. of cozy living space and is furnished with elegant elephant bamboo furniture (a renewable resource), and energy efficient appliances, e.g. refrigerator, dishwasher, washer and dryer. You can use the coiled electric stove in the kitchen, or use the new stainless steel grill on the lanai for cooking.

***Please note*** The cottage is accessible only by stairs. The stairs start with 5 steps that lead to a 30 ft. landing, 4 steps that lead to a 10 ft. landing, then 12 steps that lead to the house.

Master bedroom has a queen bed and en suite bathroom with jetted tub, television, ceiling fans, a/c, and a sky light.

Guest bedroom has 1 king bed (converted from 2 twin beds with a 3' memory foam topper) and 2 twin beds; flat screen t.v., ceiling fans and a/c.

The dining table seats 6 comfortably with 2 seats at the breakfast bar.

The large lanai has two high dining table that seats 8 to relax and enjoy the views, and a stainless steel gas grill for you to enjoy outdoor meals.

We are strict about the 6 person maximum capacity of the house. This number includes toddlers and young children. If you have 7-8 people in your party, we recommend you rent the Studio as a 3rd bedroom option.

There is a large blue tiled turtle pool with a slide for the adventurous.

There are lots linens, bath and beach towels available.

The cottage is completely separated from the owner-occupied main house, located on the same property. The owners have two friendly black-lab mix dogs who are 4 years old that reside poolside by the main house. The dogs are gated in the pool patio area and are not allowed to access the guest house grounds.

We are family friendly with infants, toddlers, and children; we try to stock the cottage with amenities to make your stay safe, comfortable and fun.

The property is located about 2-3 miles from the three 'Best Beaches' in the world, Kailua, Lanikai, and Waimanalo Beaches. Kailua is famous for its water sports and can recommend places to purchase or rent the toys to help you stay in the water, like surfboards, kayaks, windsurfers, masks and snorkels,and kitesurfing gear available. Let us know how we can make your vacation the best ever!

So much potential - won't be back

So much potential - won't be back
  • 2 of 5
I have taken pictures but unfortunately VRBO doesn't have an option to add photos with my review
Negatives:
- house is dirty and in need of a really good deep clean, and general maintenance. I actually found a child’s “lost tooth” under one of the living room chairs
- lack of general cleaning supplies - no broom or mop.
- frying pans need to be replaced
- old food left over from previous guests needs to be thrown out
- deck photo not accurate
- coolers and beach supplies are just a pile of left overs on the deck from previous guests. Most are broken, ripped, or just gross - there is no way I’m using someone else’s left over water shoes or snorkel. Coolers and beach umbrella are broken, beach bags are moldy
- bed sheets have stains and rips
- mattress cover was stained with numerous yellow spots - urine? sweat?
- blinds have been changed since listing pictures were taken. They are not privacy blinds. Change in the dark or the bathroom if you don’t want the neighbors to see you.
- Large bedroom with the 3 beds faces east - the blinds don’t block light therefore room is very bright in the morning. Sunrises at 6:45 - and so did my kids
- living room room furniture is super uncomfortable. The backs are straight up and every time you move the cushions slide out from under you.
- The pool itself is well maintained but the pool deck needs work and tidying. There is a pile of used dirty planter boxes in the corner
Positives:
- nice quiet location
- nice sized rental, we didn't feel cramped
- large deck
- ant problem has been fixed
- kitchen is well equipped

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We regret that your wife did not immediately tell us about the state of the Cottage so that we could have ordered an immediate re-cleaning of the unit for you. It is the cleaning crew’s job to do their duties, including cleaning out the fridge after every renter, washing the linens properly or reporting rips/stains if they need replacing. We rely on the cleaning crew to report on any items in the house that need repair or replacement. We have shared this review with them for a better result in the future. We also state in our handbook that we welcome our visitors to let us know as soon as possible if you need assistance with the unit, for although we live on the same property, we rarely enter the Cottage.
Per your recommendations, we have put in new 1) frying pans, 2) broom and mop, and 3) curtains to block out the light and for privacy (please note that your family was on a 4 hour time difference, and that might have partly contributed to why the kids woke up at their usual time of 6:45 am, which is 10:45 am CST), 4) will install different couches on 12/16/14, 5) order maintenance to put away the unused planters, and 6) power wash the pool area.
In the amenities section of this unit’s vrbo website, it states, “coolers, beach chairs, umbrella, snorkel gear, bodyboards (due to renter's usage, condition not guaranteed).” However, we will remove these items from the website as being available and instead recommend places to purchase new equipment.
We will also update all photos on the website to reflect the changes to the Cottage. We strive to make the place a better one for future renters.

Perfect home away from home for a family

  • 5 of 5
Our family of four with children ages 6 and 2 was totally at home for 2 weeks. We also had a third adult with us for one week. We put my sister in the master bedroom with her own bathroom, and our family of 4 was totally comfortable in rhe second bedroom with a large bed and 2 twins, that week. We had everything we needed for a simple family visit with daily trips to the beach. We did not bring any beach toys or towels. These were adequate. We also used the stroller, and noticed the high chair, pack n play, and other baby gear. Having a second bathroom was positively luxurious. The kitchen is well stocked. The view is great and it's a quiet, relaxing spot for kids to take down time while adults have a cold drink on the lanai. Great natural light and ventilation. Some reviews did mention ants--- I'd like to echo that ants in kitchens are ubiquitous in Hawaii and we've learned over years of visits to family that food must be meticulously cleaned up and the dishwasher run immediately- if that's done, you don't see ants! We were totally satisfied and would be happy to return.

Kailua Home

  • 5 of 5
We had a very nice stay at this house. It is a very quiet neighborhood. The property is well maintained with detailed written instructions. The photos were accurate, except the pool has a fence around it, but the is not a big deal. The owners keep to themselves, but are friendly if you need them. The location is great if you don't need to be right on the beach. You are 5 minutes to Kailua beach and 2 minutes to highway 72 to head out to other destinations, which we did often. You can't hear the highway because it is on the other side of a large hill. We are a family of 5 adults and it was perfect for us. There are lots of stairs which might be a draw back for some. We would stay here again.

Great place to stay in Kailua!

  • 5 of 5
Myself, my husband, our two and 1/2 year old and my mother and father-in-law all stayed here while we visited family for a week and it was perfect for us! Very spacious, loved having two bathrooms for the 4 adults and the kitchen was great. We LOVED the lanai and ate our breakfasts every morning out there with the beautiful mountain and lake views. They had tons of towels and linens and everything you could think of in the kitchen, although we never made more than quick breakfast meals.
My favorite thing about this place was the fact that they had tons of toys and beach toys that were PERFECT for our two year old son! Made it very easy to keep him entertained at the rental as well as on the beach--thanks!
The steps were never a problem for us, although there are many, but were well lit and we knew about them before hand. During our stay they were doing road work on every road in the neighborhood and no one was allowed to park on the street. Our hosts were very gracious and gave up their parking spots in the driveway to let us part there, again, thanks!
The home is very close to Kailua town, you still would have to drive, but very close to grocery stores, restaurants and shops. We loved the location overall--would definitely rent this place again!

wonderful holydays

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in this lovely and clean house in february 2014. My sons ( 13 and 18) loved the pool. Even if it was a rainy day, they jumped in. The location is ideal for starting sightseeing. And after an adventourous day we loved to sit on our lanai and relax. We will return!
Everything else (friendly people, shopping ...)is as said before. The stairs have a lot of automatical started lights!
Wir haben unseren Urlaub sehr genoßen! Das sehr gepflegte Haus ist der ideale Startpunkt für Inselausflüge mit dem Auto. Gerne kehrt man hierher zurück, um in Ruhe auf der Lanei all die Eindrücke sacken zu lassen. Oder man gönnt sich einen faulen Pool- und Beachtag. Die Räume sind groß genug für Familien und die zwei Bäder sind prima bei der Nutzung mit mehreren Personen. Wir wünschen Arlene und Josh noch viele zufriedene Gäste.
