Amazing studio within walking distance to beach!
If you are looking for an extremely clean, well equipped, quaint retreat for your Hawaiian vacation, look no further! This studio is within walking distance to one of the most beautiful beaches in Hawaii, and away from the hustle and bustle of busier, more touristy cities on the Island. Short drive to downtown Kailua which has tons of grocery stores, boutiques, and restaurants.
Let me pre-face this review by saying my family and I are experienced travelers, and almost always use VRBO for rental properties. With that said, this is by far the best rental we have had the luxury to occupy. The online photos do it no justice, it is much bigger than pictured, easily fitting my family of three. The cleanliness and attention to detail can not be surpassed. Having a welcome package including fresh fruit, coffee, and chocolate was a nice surprise. Teresa, the property owner, is fantastic to say the least! She promptly Answered any questions we had prior to our stay, and stayed in contact to ensure a smooth, stress-free stay. She even picked my husband fresh guava from one of her trees. The studio’s kitchen is well equipped with anything you need, including a coffee grinder, coffee pot, microwave, cooktop, and all pots/pans/utensils. Teresa has various supplies including dish/hand soap, cleaning products, laundry detergent, nail polish, etc which we have never encountered in a rental before! Teresa also has beach towels, scuba gear, sand toys, beach chairs, and an umbrella for you to enjoy. The outside sitting area and grill is very useful, most nights we enjoyed eating dinner outside! The pool was a nice luxury which most properties do not have in the area. Very clean and nice to enjoy after a long outing at the beach!
I truly can not recommend this studio any more highly. Thank you Teresa for allowing my family to have such an amazing vacation! You are a fantastic host. We are forever grateful.
With much appreciation and gratitude,
Kevin, Krista, and Madison.

Lovely studio, great location!
Thank you Teresa! We had a fabulous stay. Everything was perfect. The studio is brilliantly equipped and in a wonderful location. We loved the pool and the short distance to the beach. Thank you so much for everything you did to make us feel so welcome - we had such an amazing time and hope to stay again one day. Mahalo, Emily and Robbie.
Dear Emily & Robbie,
Thank you so much for choosing to stay with us for your honeymoon trip to O'ahu. It was lovely to meet you. Much Aloha,
Informal and pleasant Lanikai studio
We very much enjoyed swimming in the beautiful, well-maintained garden pool and nearby ocean snorkeling. A large mango tree and covered parking provided welcome shade at both entrances. Kitchen and laundry facilities were fully equipped. A small propane grill outside substituted well for no oven inside. The resident property manager provided prompt, friendly help, e.g. replaced a broken toaster the day after it was reported. Ceiling fans and a/c provided good cooling options. Handicap accessibility could benefit from a bar in the shower and near the toilet.
Treehouse in Lanikai
My sister and I loved this studio--it is surrounded by trees and flowers, with birdsong much of the day. It was very nicely decorated and had all we needed, especially the short few blocks walk to the beach. Theresa welcomed us with a lovely bowl of local fruit and was a good source of local knowledge.
Thank you, Lora & Grace, for your kind thoughts. We enjoyed your gentle, quiet presence at Lanikai Hale. It was fun to share memories of growing up in Lanikai/Kailua. Much Aloha, Teresa.
Just one block from our driveway is the nearest Lanikai Beach right-of-way & three small blocks to the large Lanikai Beach; kayaking, boating, parasailing, biking, health/beauty spa; Lanikai Park with basketball court & swings.
