About Owner

We have been in Hawaii for many years. My husband born and raised here on Oahu He moved to Kailua when he was very young . He has surfed for many years both board and body can tell you good spots for experienced and beginners .

Owner purchased this Apartment in 1998

Why Owner chose Lanikai

This is a unique and private community. The apartment is located close to all that you might be interested in seeing on Ohau . The completion of H3 HWY has made it possible to get from Kailua to Pearl Harbor, Waikele Premium Outlets,North Shore Big waves great surf spots I might add no traffic on H3. Going from Lanikai to Sandy Beach , Makapu'u ,Sea Life Park, and Hanauma Bay are all about 30 minute drive on Kalaniana'ole HWY

What makes this Apartment unique

Beaches here are beautiful we exercise and walk and jog and bike. We can relax and have quiet hours for reading and resting. We are a short 3 minute walk to the beach. Every morning you can enjoy a nice private walk on the beach with beautiful fine white sand and than come home for coffee and enjoy the tropical setting off your lanai or if you prefer you can go to a local coffee shop just off Kailua Beach. Bikes are also available in Kailua for rent to bike the trails and just getting around Kailua There are several areas for hiking. One that is quite enjoyable when you get to the top that overlooks all of Lanikai.

                                                                  My family of 4 enjoyed our stay at this great little place in Kailua. Great neighborhood, terrific hosts, and super close to our favorite beach on Hawaii. The place had everything we needed!

                                                                  A real gem

                                                                  Lorie M.Whitehorse, Yukon

                                                                  Our time here was wonderful. The suite was perfect for the family and we were so ideally located. Everything we needed was close at hand. Len and Jennifer were fabulous hosts and if I ever find myself back in Oahu I will most certainly look at booking here again.

                                                                  Great location and wonderful accommodations

                                                                  Natalie L.Huntersville, NC

                                                                  My mother and I stayed here for a girls birthday get away and it was perfect. The location is very close to multiple beach access points and great hiking.There is a large outdoor seating area where we ate many meals and relaxed at night. Plenty of places to eat and shop near by, including a target and whole foods. The house had everything we needed from beach chairs, towel, and coolers to take to the beach, to yoga mats to do yoga on the porch in the morning. The fully equipped kitchen was just enough for us, and we made most of our meals at the house. The hosts were incredibly accommodating and happy to work with us to do whatever they could to make our stay better. If you don't see what you need, ask! We will definitely come back!

The kitchen is well stocked. The master bedroom was so comfortable, lot of storage. The gazebo is covered and spacious, beautiful area to take a nap, relax, listen to the tropical birds singing, and enjoy reading a book when its raining. This place is absolutely perfect. Thank you Len and Jenny for being helpful and awesome hosts. - Alex,Luba - Vancouver WA

The town of Kailua offers shopping, restaurants and many activities. The apartment has everything you need including beach chairs, boogie boards and a cart. We loved the lanai area and it provided a great place to relax while being outdoors. The owners were so welcoming and helpful. Look no further for your stay in paradise.
