Great place, close to the beach.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this spot. It's exactly what we'd hoped for and as advertised. Quiet, private and it's so close to the beach that we actually left our towels and umbrella on the sand while walking back to to the studio to grab refreshments from the fridge. We had amazing some snorkelling with sea turtles right there as well.

Easy weekend with my wife

  • 5 of 5

Small space but everything we needed for our 3 day stay was there. Access to the beach was excellent. Having bikes to ride into town was a major perk with this VRBO since the traffic in Lanikai can be irritating.

This is a smart place for a couple to have a beach get away.

Definite gem!!

  • 5 of 5

This place was perfect for us. It was just my husband and I and it was our first time staying on this side of the island. The area was quiet and beautiful, a minute walk to a beautiful beach that wasn't over crowded. The place was very clean and had everything we needed. There was also PARKING which is a huge plus when staying in this area. It was centrally located to everywhere else we wanted to go, just a short drive to North Shore or Waikiki. It was right down the road from the Maunawili waterfall hike which was beautiful. We loved taking the bicycles around the neighborhood and playing at the beach. Anytime we had questions we always received a quick response. All in all this place was wonderful and we would definitely stay here again!

Amazing place!

  • 5 of 5

So glad we choose this place for our stay in Kailua! Very close to the beach and a short bike into town each day. Pillbox hike was less than half a mile away and the place was the perfect size for the two of us. You don't really spend too much time indoors when you're in Hawaii, but the time we did spend in our rental was comfortable and quiet. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a quiet get-a-way for two and looking to stay away from the hustle and bustle of a big city. We loved our time in Kailua/Lanikai!

Lanikai is amazing and we are so fortunate to share the beauty of this special place with others. The soft sand beach and pristine blue water, always seems to bring people back for more. I hope you come visit us again real soon!! We would love to have you. Big Mahalo to you and your husband Lu!! Margret

Cute & great location but not AC

  • 4 of 5

Small, cute studio "in law" apartment off the garage on the property of a large house. The place was quaintly decorated and although quite small, was adequate enough for myself and my boyfriend.

PROS:

Lounge chairs, boogie boards, and bikes available for use

Kitchen with fridge and hot plate

Beach towels

Great wifi

Cable (tho we didn't use it)

Ceiling fan in main room and bathroom

Decor is "beach cute"

CONS:

Despite many windows, very poor air flow (probably due to high fences all around the property, we didn't get any breeze)

No AC - we slept very little because the air was stagnant and hot at night (80 degrees). I texted the owner for a portable AC unit and they brought another fan but it was still difficult to sleep without cooler air. It definitely put a damper on the vacation.

Not a lot of space to unpack luggage (eg no drawers).

Only 2 bath towels for 2 people for 3 days - difficult because they started to smell bad after a while (lack of air flow and humidity prevented towels from drying).

I'd probably stay here again during the winter when the air is cooler or if they install AC. The close proximity to Lanikai beach is a huge draw.

Owner's Response: Aloha, Thank you for your input on Kimo’s. It is close for comfort and sweet decorating. I will make sure The cleaning lady knows to put 4 towels instead of 2. I am so sorry about the heat, this time of year, was hotter then normal. I will talk to owners and ask about AC. Kimo’s location is the best, right next to the most popular beach access in Lanikai. Breathtaking and serene! Much Mahalo Margret

Tiny Cottage in Lanikai

  • 3 of 5

We arrived to find a clean, charming, tiny (may I repeat, tiny) cottage, just a block from a lovely beach. That is definitely the wonderful feature about this place....location, location, location.

If it was only a matter of size, we would have given a higher rating, because, after all, this is Hawaii and you want to be outside. Alas, there were other drawbacks.

While wifi was listed as an amenity, it didn't work. Either the user name wasn't recognized, or the password didn't work. Our phones didn't work inside either. We had to stand at the edge of the driveway to get any service. I tried calling the property manager three times and the call was dropped. I could hear her say "hello", but she couldn't hear me.

Then there was the shower. The water pressure was fine, but the drain was sluggish so by the end of your shower you were calf deep in dirty water. We ended up, wetting our bodies, turning off the water to soap up, and then turning on the water to rinse off. Not very relaxing. We also found a rather large, very fast, cockroach on the sink.

There were 3 sets of towels left for our use with strict instructions not to remove them from the unit. Yes, there were two beach chairs provided, which we used daily, but NO beach towels...really, no beach towels when you're a block from the beach. Who travels with beach towels.

Then there was the kitchen...refrigerator-check, dishwasher-check, toaster oven-check. No microwave, no stove. Just a hotplate. This obviously, made cooking hard. They did have very pretty dishes and there was a grill.

Bikes were provided but no helmets. My husband is a pediatrician and I'm a nurse so obviously, that wasn't going to work for us.

Owner's Response: Aloha, Thank you for the review. Kimo’s is 400 square foot small cottage and as they say It’s Location, Location, Location. Growing up here in Kailua everyone always talked about “The Wall” a beach access located in Lanikai. This beach access is directly down the street from Kimo’s. The Wall has been the most popular access for decades. We enjoy sharing the Aloha of our beautiful beach community with visitors. Lanikai has always been a very special place; we want everyone to feel welcome and comfortable. I wanted to hit some points on your concerns. We provided beach towels. Made sure you had an iron the very same day that you requested. Our plumbing is maintained and on schedule. Due to living by the beach and being at sea level many things need constant care and up keep. We are in the tropics; we have creepy crawlers that always seem to find time to find there way back into our homes. We treated Kimo’s for those creepy guys, so they will not be back for a while. We thank those geckos, for there are good luck around here. Lanikai is a protected area and helmets are an option in Hawaii, bikes are used at your own risk. We will get helmets for those that want them in the future. Thank you for your input, we just got a new router in the unit so no more funky wifi. As for the phone service in Lanikai it has it’s moments and depends on the service providers. So I am so sorry that our call dropped, I wish that everyone service providers worked in everywhere! Including paradise! Thank you again for your insight to make Kimo’s a beautiful place for our future guests. The beauty of our surroundings and the spirit of Aloha will always remain in our hearts and for all who come to Hawaii. I hope you got a taste of the “aina” (our land) and will be back real soon!
