About Maureen McKeague

We are truly a mom & pop business. Barney was born and raised in our home which was purchased by his parents in 1938. I joined the family in 1964 and we enjoyed raising our six children at this beautiful location. All our guests tell us how special our place is, what peace they feel here, and what a blessing it was to stay here. We are still here and look forward to meeting you.

What makes this house unique

We really enjoy having the beach right across the street as we often walk over to catch the morning sunrise and later go for a swim, snorkel, paddle or nice walk.

Lanikai Sonrise Cottage - Directly Across the St. from Beach
average rating of 5.0 based on 24 reviews

The aloha spirit lives here.

  • 5 of 5

the location is across the street from in my opinion the best beach in Oahu. The sunrises are amazing, the water is good for swimming, snorkeling or if you have the equitment any form of paddling.The 1928 cottage is exactly what I needed; comfortable , clean and all the cooking supplies needed

The best part was the landlords. They welcomed us into the true Hawaiian lifestyle.

If you are looking for a party palace this is not it, but if you are looking for a place to call home then look no further

Best vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough how much we enjoyed our stay and vacation at the cottage. The owners love and maintain the home making it comfortable and clean. They have great advice overall about the island and make you feel like you are at home. The bedrooms are very comfortable with small air-conditioning units in each room. LOCATION, I cannot say it enough, location, location, location. The house has private parking and gates where you feel spoiled watching people try to park for the Pillbox hike or get to the beach. The beach is only steps away making it ideal to watch the sunrise over the Mokulua islands every morning. Our family felt spoiled staying at this charming house, loved cooking family meals and eating on the large back porch. By far one of the best vacations we have ever had.

Hawaii's Fun in the Sun & Surf

  • 5 of 5

First of all the owners of this property are excellent host and lives on property. The home was well maintained, clean, and fully equipped to make you feel at home away from home. The three bedrooms were well appointed, clean, and comfortable with Hawaiian decor and memorabilia of Lanikai, The Home History/Family, and Hawaii. The covered deck was very roomy with tables, benches, chairs, and a gas barbecue and offered a spacious place to hold our luncheon for many family and friends. Our Children enjoyed the large yard surrounding the house and allowed them lots of space to run and play. The yard was large enough to support parking for our rental cars and visitors. The air condition units in all rooms offered a great relief from the Humidity and made the nights very comfortable. The pathway to the beach from the house was conveniently located and we spent everyday at the Lanika Beach which offered photo opts for spectacular sun rises . They also had a variety of water toys for adults and children alike (Surf Boards, Boogie Boards, snorkel and mask, sand toys. sand chairs, beach towels, and more) for more fun at the beach. The Kitchen was fully equipped to satisfy any Chef's requirements to eat in or enjoy the many restaurants in Kailua. We felt like Ohana (Family) because the owners interaction and attention to every need during our stay. I would highly recommend this property to families, friends, and anyone who wants to experience the lifestyle of Hawaii and all of its rich history.

Exceptional location, property and owners

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 spent the entire month of July 2016 in Lanikai and had my 2 sister-in-laws there with us for 2 weeks. The owners Reenie and Barney literally became like family to us. The property was very clean and comfortable and just as described. Actually the photos don't do it justice.

The location is outstanding. My husband and I had lived in Hawaii in Lanikai 20+ years ago so we knew that this was the area we wanted to stay in on the island. This area of the windward side is great. The beaches are family-oriented and the neighborhood is quiet. There are plenty of great places to eat and shop right in Kailua. The swimming and snorkeling at Lanikai is the best.

The owners have everything you need to enjoy your trip. There are beach chairs, floats, boogie and surf boards, and more. There are all kinds of kitchen supplies, washer/dryer, private parking so you never worry about finding a spot on the street and you are just steps from the beach. The covered porch is where we spent a lot of our time in the mornings and evenings. There are many listings in Lanikai that talk about great views and just steps from the beach. Trust me from someone who has lived here and visited here recently, this is the best location. Even though other listings may show great views and photos if you walk to the beach from those properties you will have to climb back up a steep hill or climb stairs. We never even put on our shoes to go to the beach since all we had to do was cross the street and we were on the beach access path with sand. Also there are listing that are not close to the sandy part of Lanikai's beach, this property is right in the middle of the sandy part of Lanikai's beach.

We are already talking about when can we get back to Lanikai and this is the place we want to stay.

Car: recommended

We have World Famous Lanikai Beach just across the street with great snorkeling, swimming, kayaking, or just laying in the sun. A hike up to the pill boxes is just a couple blocks behind the house, a great bike lane around Lanikai Loop and on through the beach park and into Kailua town for great restaurants and shopping.
