Stroll over to the white sand beach and work on your tan, take a dip in the inviting surf, launch a kayak, or paddle board.

The home boasts a spacious ocean view gourmet kitchen with large cooking island. The great room and dining area is large and open to the kitchen with vaulted open beam ceilings and walls of glass to take in spectacular ocean views. The large area gives plenty of room to gather and play cards, or have great conversation with all the family about the events of the day. The open character allows guests to simply relax with each other and experience the essence of Hawaii. Living area is serviced by a unique half bath with custom painted wall mural.

An indoor laundry room is conveniently located near the bedrooms. Splash around and cool off in the sitting pool steps from the wrap around lanai (the pool is a small 12 ft. by 4 ft. jacuzzi type pool only 4 ft deep and not for swimming). Ocean views simply abound from this home.

Unlike most other properties, this property has a quiet central air conditioning unit as opposed to noisy window air conditioning units that will keep you and your family cool if you choose to get out of the sun and stay indoors for the day. Although the view and quiet location is exceptional, this feature of having a quietly running cool air conditioner in the home is especially appreciated on those warmer than normal days when the Hawaiian trade winds subside.

The neighborhood is exceptionally quiet and peaceful surrounded with lots of tropical vegetations. Many of the visitors especially appreciate the sounds of the birds in the morning or the ocean at night.

Why Gregory Silva chose Lanikai

This property is located within a 3 minute walk from the beach. The home is in a very quiet location and has a very relaxed feel of not staying in the busy tourist area of Waikiki and the like. Not only is the home a spacious 2200 sq. ft. home, but it especially is nice having a central air conditioning unit throughout the house. Although the weather is fantastic in Lanikai, it is especially nice to come in doors and enjoy the comfort of a cool home with central air conditioning, which most other properties do not have.

As mentioned, if you are looking for a quiet get away with a view of the ocean and Mokulua islands, this would be ideal for you and your family. This vacation rental is best suited for those that are interested in a quiet relaxing atmosphere.

What makes this house unique

This Lanikai home is located in not only the best part of Kailua, but located in the best part of Lanikai. The home also has central air conditioning for those that prefer to spend some time taking a break from the warmer Hawaii weather. Also, the home has a magnificent view of the Mokulua islands where sunrises and moon risings can be observed while sitting at the dining table. Many of those that have experienced the home have expressed their desire to never leave or to stay a bit longer. This is a most fantastic way to experience the paradise of living in Hawaii.

Best family vacation ever

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I agreed, it was our best family vacation ever. The owner worked really hard to make sure we had a great stay, the weather and the beach were phenomenal, and the house provided an extremely restful environment to come back to after long sessions outside.

We had two kids ages 2 and 6, who shared the middle bedroom. Grandma came and took the far bedroom, with a shared bathroom with the kids. We stayed in the master suite with its own bedroom.

The house is well-kept, in a great location, quiet, clean, and comfortable. Amenities are basic but comprehensive -- it's not a luxury place but all the equipment needed, especially in the kitchen, is there and high quality (not the flimsy stuff you often see in short-term rentals). Plus there is a pack-and-play, stroller, and high chair provided for younger children. The dipping pool on the lanai with the waterjets was also a great add.

Walk to the Lanikai main beach was about 5 minutes, and about 1 minute to the nearest beach access between a few large seawalls.

We are looking forward to coming back and staying again as soon as we can.

Great spot to enjoy Lanikai's amazing beaches!

  • 4 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at "Lanikai By The Sea" which we stayed at for almost 10 days. It's location puts you in an intimate part of the Lanikai neighborhood, close proximity to a couple small beach access points, with larger beaches a longer walk away.

The house is a bit older than we imagined and in need of some TLC, but it sports an impressive open living room and kitchen area, and a magical view from the top of the house. The house was equipped with most items you might need to prepare meals, have a beach outing, and even board games for game night.

We encountered a couple wrinkles during our stay: our vehicle was too big to fit into the garage, and we initially weren't able to park in the driveway; some home maintenance that temporarily shut the water off and was disruptive to our baby's sleeping; mosquitos devoured us after getting in through a window with no screen; and, seemingly, quite frequent visiting of the property by the owner or his associates.

Thankfully, Gregory was reasonable and worked with us to find solutions to our problems. All and all, I found Gregory to be a very welcoming host. We had some snags during our stay, but it was overwhelmingly positive and I recommend “Lanikai By The Sea” to any beach-loving group (with a normal sized vehicle).

Owner's Response: This traveler ignored the parking restrictions, which states no vehicles over 18 ft. are allowed on premises (any vehicles over 18 ft. do not fit in the enclosed parking garage and parking in the driveway is prohibited (parking in Lanikai is tough and we need to keep the driveway open for pool cleaner, yard service vehicle, and any other maintenance vehicles if any need arises). We still accommodated the traveler and allowed them to park in the driveway knowing that doing so could cause potential problems with any maintenance vehicles if the need arose. Coincidently, it was quite surprising the traveler then later became agitated and upset when a week later, after they were returning from the beach, they could not park their large vehicle in the driveway because a plumber's truck was parked there instead (ironically the plumber was there to unclog the pipes due to the traveler putting somethings down the disposal that are not meant to be put in disposals). Had they had a vehicle less than 18 ft. they would easily be able to park in the enclosed garage. It was surprising they could not see the irony in this situation. Other than the home maintenance issue as a result of the traveler clogging the kitchen sink, a plumbing pipe needed to be replaced in the exterior of the property. The traveler was told a pipe needed to be replaced and was asked what a good day and time would be for the plumber to come in and fix the pipe. The traveler was told the water would be shut off for an hour in order to complete the job. After being told they did not need the water on for a while, the plumber started and finished the job as quickly as possible. In short, the travelers were upset because the plumber took 15 minutes longer than what the travelers were told. We would have hoped they were as forgiving as we were when we allowed them to break the house rules and park their large vehicle in the driveway. The "visiting by owner and associates" refers to maintenance workers due to maintenance issues caused by travelers themselves, as well as the regular pool services, yard services, and basic maintenance that all homeowners do (beautiful vegetation on property requires constant upkeep). In the 10 days the visitors were there, the maintenance on the property was less than 15 hours in total time. The one missing screen is being installed. Traveler did not keep particular window closed until screen was replaced to keep mosquitos out.

Awesome Location & Home!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place to spend our family vacation and anniversary. The cost of our total stay at this vacation home for our whole family was such a deal. The spectacular scenery looking out at the water each morning was breath taking. It’s a short skip from the door steps to one of the most beautiful white sand beaches that we have been to. Great for the kids. We loved catching the early morning sunrise coming up near the Mokulua islands. Barbequing during the evenings watching the sunsets. The home itself was very spacious and had all the amenities that we needed. The home and all the rooms were clean and well maintained. Public transportation is close. The market, restaurants and shopping is only a bike ride away. It’s a great place to relax and spend your time if your staying on Oahu, Hawaii. We highly recommended this hideaway because we think you will not be disappointed. We are so excited for our next vacation and look forward to returning!

Most Memorable Hawaii Vacation Ever!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent our vacation in this lovely home that has a fantastic view of the Mokulua’s. We have stayed in Lanikai before and would say that on this trip we not only loved the more open and tropical feel to it, but we especially loved that the home is located in the more quiet and less busy part of Lanikai. Although it was nice being able to walk to the beach within minutes for a quick dip in the water, we also enjoyed cooling off in the jacuzzi type sitting pool while staying in to grill burgers for lunch or dinner.  The owner was very nice and always available if we needed anything or just wanted suggestions on where to go, etc.  We have been to Hawaii before, but this most certainly is the most memorable Hawaiian vacation we have had.  I will recommend staying here to all I know that plans on going to Hawaii.

Car: recommended

Lanikai is located in Kailua where there are shops, restaurants, grocery stores, a theatre, and many other things most people enjoy. Lanikai is most known for it being rated as the number one beach in the world. The ocean breezes are always blowing gently off the beautiful turquoise ocean. It's no wonder people come from afar to experience the serene and tranquil surroundings. There is a reason former President Obama frequently visits, dines, and stays in Lanikai.
