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.

120 steps to the beach (I counted). If you care about the aloha spirit, this is the place. If you want fast-paced nightlife, don't bother. Lanikai Beach is as good as it gets anywhere: powdery, clean sand and a mellow vibe. Barney will tell you which way to walk for decent snorkeling. The house has real history to it and is comfortable and has everything you need. Terrific hosts. You can walk to Kailua town for breakfast (40 minute stroll to Morning Brew; half that to the Kalapawai Market). The Lanikai Pillbox trail is right around the corner. Kayak or SUP rentals at Kailua Beach Adventures also walkable.

Wonderful Lanikai!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful stay We had in such a terrific house! The beach access to gorgeous Lanikai Beach is right across the street so we could pop over anytime and really enjoyed being on the beach in the full moon. My adult children were able to do all the strenuous hiking they wanted and Honolulu was just 25 minutes away for Christmas shopping. This home and kitchen is wonderfully supplied with everything we needed. Reenie and Barney were available for questions and made us feel very welcome. We will be back!

Cozy cottage steps away from the beach

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was a perfect place for 6 of us - 2 adults with four young children. The kitchen was easy to use, bedrooms air-conditioned with lots of books and toys for our elementary school children. There were plenty of beach toys too - body boards, floats, rugby balls and many more. The back yard was a great place to dry our swim suits, shower off the sand or just hang out in the sun or under the coconut tree. Lanikai beach was just steps away and was perfect for our family vacation. I will recommend this property for anyone who is looking for a relaxing time off with family or friends.

Wonderful Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Barney and Reenie are such gracious hosts. The house was perfect for our family vacation. The kids loves the big yard to run in and the short walk to the beach. The location is perfect to get away from busy Waikiki and just escape to everything you wish a relaxing Hawaiian vacation could be. I can't recommend this place enough. They have a big deck that's perfect for bbqs and family dinners outside. The neighborhood is quiet and relaxing. The beach was right across the street, the pillbox trail was just a few blocks away, it was perfect. Mahalo Barney and Reenie for everything! We would definitely rent from them again, unless we end up moving there first!

Great house, awesome location, perfect vacation

  • 5 of 5

I did a lot of research when trying to find a house to accommodate my family of 6 including a 1 year old baby. We wanted to be close to the beach, and this house was in a perfect location on the best beach on Oahu (Lanikai Beach). It’s literally a 30 second walk to the sand. There’s one parking spot right next to the house which was very convenient for going in and out, unloading luggage/groceries/etc…

Maureen and Barney were incredible hosts. Before arrival, they were very responsive and informative… and even when we got there, we were greeted and given a tour of the home. There is the main house which has 3 bedrooms/2 bathrooms and a nice open living/kitchen area to hangout in with the family. Then, next door is their little studio you can rent separately (would be great for couples)… and next to that is a separate home where they live. Even with all houses occupied, we never felt over-crowded or intruded-on at all.

Everything is fully furnished and they have every household item you could possibly need… from kitchen appliances to utensils to a pack & play for the baby. They also have beach chairs, toys, towels, etc… The bedrooms were spacious and had air conditioning (even though you don’t really need it with the windows open letting in the Hawaiian breeze). There’s also a large deck with a grill where we spent an evening grilling out dinner for the family.

There’s really nothing bad to say about the house. We had a wonderful vacation and would recommend this home to anyone.

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.
