What makes this villa unique

This property has one of the best views in Lanikai! Short walk to Lanikai beach, quiet, and naturally cool most of the time.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Words cannot describe how wonderful Lois' place is, especially for the value, but I'll try. First, the location is easily the best spot in Lanikai, let alone Oahu altogether. The view is stunning, and the accessibility to Lanikai beach, Kailua and surrounding attractions makes this spot ideal for your desire to explore the island. BUT, we didn't because you simply cannot find a better "perch" on the island. In fact, most people we met around town and on the beach made this destination spot for a day, and left wondering "why don't we just stay here the whole time"? Enter our 7 day stay. First, Lois is a wonderful person and great host. Reminder, this is her home and permanent residence, thus it is (I believe) equally important to be mindful and respectful as guests (this probably holds true in most aspects of life). That being said, most of the time you felt like you had much of the property to yourself (includes the pool, your room, and a separate studio-like area with lots of extras). The bed is comfortable, the bathroom is clean and roomy, and even thought the sunrise and sunset are bar-none the best thing to do, Lois does provide wireless internet and cable t.v. Access to the beach is 3 blocks away, albeit I am lazy, so I chose to use are rental car. Lois provides you use of the washer and dryer, and the rec room is equipped with microwave, refrigerator, toaster oven, hot plate, coffee maker...and even gives you fresh eggs from her chickens and filtered drinking water as needed. I loved not having to pack beach towels, snorkeling gear, coolers, and other beach items because they are all provided. Anyone would be hard pressed to find a better accommodation and location for the price, not to re-mention what a great host Lois was. We also had our own parking spot, which is RARE in Lanikai. Again, words cannot describe the views, especially as your toes are dancing in the beautiful pool. I took a video from the patio where we watched the sunrise every morning. You can find it on youtube searching under Panoramic view of Lanikai Bay. This is what you'll see if you are fortunate enough to break away for vacation, and Lois' rental is available. Rani and I thank you again for a spectacular time "doing nothing". It was the best!!!!!

Amazing view was spot on!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was most enjoyable and after days of being at the beach and seeing the sights, it was a great place to return to at night. Great location to seeing the sights in Honolulu plus the North Shore! One of the selling features for the spa loving member in the family was having a hot tub to enjoy in the evening. After reading the welcome material upon arriving, we read that there was an additional $20.00 fee to heat the spa. We chose not to pay the additional charge and wished we would have known this info when we booked the rental. We had a great time and enjoyed Lois' beautiful home!

Lovely basement rental.

  • 4 of 5

Was a little surprised how difficult it was to navigate the steep drive without the car, but absolutely loved the view. Very homey. Tight sleeping quarters.Big bathroom. Large eating and reading area with a view! Lovely patio for reading and watching the weather around twin mountains. Warm and inviting host. Lots of beach stuff to use!

Quiet with beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

We chose to stay away from the crowds of Waikiki even though we found ourselves traveling there daily. It was so worth it. The views are amazing, especially at sunrise.

Beautiful view of the ocean and quiet relaxing neighborhood.

It was really a great location to head to the beach and rest in a quiet neighborhood. The grounds were landscaped nicely. The owner respected your privacy. Great vacation!

Stunning View

  • 5 of 5

I enjoyed my stay at this property. The room is quiet, cool, and very clean. The kitchen area has a great view of the ocean. I didn't swim in the pool, but it is lovely. The property is located in a great area and I would definitely stay here again.

6th time on this rental property. It is our home away from home. We won't stay anywhere else.

  • 5 of 5

Wake up to the most amazing sunrises and go to sleep after gazing at the stars. What else could you ask for? How about an awesome host? Lois is the best. Period. We have enjoyed many annual vacations with and without our three teenage children. We couldn't feel more at home.
