Overview

About the property

2 bedrooms, 1 bath, sleeps 6 - king bed, queen bed, queen futon and full futon

Enjoy the gentle breezes of outdoor living on the windward side of the island of Oahu. This two bedroom, 2,000+ sq. foot private Lanikai hillside home is on a quiet street just a 5 minute walk to the widest section of Lanikai Beach. From our veranda you have unobstructed ocean views of all of Kailua Bay and the Mokulua Islands (the Mokes). The sunrises are spectacular, and when the full moon rises over the water with the Mokes as a backdrop it is breathtaking. In winter watch the breaching Humpback whales play just offshore.

The house is fully equipped with everything you need for your vacation, including all linens, towels and paper products. Just bring yourselves!

Our 6-person, fully automated, solar-heated natural salt hot tub was built-to-spec by Natural Salt Pools.

The house opens to a 900 sq. foot wrap-around veranda with extra large sliding glass doors to allow flow-through breezes throughout the house and 180 degree views of Lanikai Bay and the mountain behind the house.

Lanikai park, which has a new playground, a basketball court, an open field, and a workout station, is nearby. If you enjoy an early morning jog or a late afternoon walk, our 2.2 mile Lanikai loop is just the place. There is also the famous "pillbox trail" hike, which allows for even more spectacular views of Lanikai Bay and the Mokulua Islands.

Rinse off in the outdoor hot water shower with great view of the Mokes!

I live on the one acre property in a separate house so I am always available if you need anything.

What makes this house unique

It gets the trade winds, is away from the traffic and noise, and it has drop dead views. The house is airy and comfortable.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you Lois for opening up your wonderful Lanikai home to us. Everything was perfect! The view was amazing, the home was clean, the beds were extremely comfortable, the kitchen was easy to get around in (with the great view), and the hot tub was an added bonus! Waking up to that beautiful sun rising is a memory that will be with me forever. Lois, you were the perfect hostess. I appreciate your hospitality.

This property has great views, a great locale, and was a great fit for our family of 5!

  • 5 of 5

We loved being on the Windward side of Oahu! The 2 porches were great to hang out on and we loved being close to the best beach areas and hiking the Pillbox. It is definitely more relaxing than Honolulu, but easily accessible (we did Pearl Harbor).

We were also able to cook and do laundry, very accommodating!

Owner's Response: I'm glad you took advantage of the pillbox hike being so close that you could hike it many times and also enjoyed Lanikai Beach. Yes, we are far enough from the hustle and bustle of Waikiki but close enough to be able to visit easily.

Majestic views and a beautiful house

  • 5 of 5

This house is absolutely beautiful and beyond our expectations. The views are breathtaking. The house is comfortable with lots of room and everything you need. The pictures of the interior of the house do not do it justice. It is beautiful inside and out!! The location could not be better. We loved this house so much it truly made our vacation. Lois, the home owner, was wonderful. The next time we come to Oahu, we will arrange our trip around this accommodation. It was that amazing!! Thank you, Lois, from the bottom of our hearts.

Very nice property! I want to come back!

  • 5 of 5

Lois has created a wonderful experience for family travelers to Oahu. This rental property has an amazing view of Lanikai coastline and the Mokes islands. There was plenty of space for our family of six people. We definitely want to come back to this one!

View is almost too pretty :)

  • 5 of 5

Well, the panoramic view would have given this rental five stars even if it had been a Yurt! Just gorgeous and the house was spacious with just two of us. We chose to park below the house because if you don't then you must park on the steep driveway. That's not a negative but just a heads up so you are ok with either way. Lovely stay. Easy access to the fabulous Lanikai Beach. Would happily rent again. Mahalo!

Stunning View

  • 5 of 5

The house has a stunning view of the ocean and the Mokes which is optimized by the wall of sliding glass doors and windows. We've enjoyed sitting on the deck and in the hot tub just taking in the vista. The price of being built in to the side of the Lanakai hill is a very steep driveway, so make sure your rental vehicle is 4 wheel drive. We'd love to come back!

Car: recommended

We are a 5 minute walk from Lanikai beach and a 10 minute walk to Kailua beach.

The bay is perfect for swimming every day and kite surfing, windsurfing and boogie boarding on windy days and stand up paddling and kayaking when it's calmer. The water is clean, clear and warm with white sand. Lanikai has a 2.2 mile bike/jogging path. Kailua town is 5 minutes by car for shopping and restaurants. Waimanalo beach, another gorgeous beach, is 15 minutes away by car.
