Lanikai Beach is wonderful

December 5, 2014

Our family rented this house over Thanksgiving (for a week) and loved it. It is not on the beach has a great view and is an easy walk to beach and ocean access. The house was everything we needed and expected and the kitchen was big and worked well. Lanikai Beach is a quiet residential beach area so we really enjoyed to laid back atmosphere of the neighborhood and the easy access to Kailua town center for groceries and Starbucks. We recommend this house as an excellent value and hope to return ourselves in the future.

Best Vacation Ever

October 13, 2014

This vacation rental is a warm and welcome place to enjoy and get away! We spent two weeks of relaxation just two blocks from one of the most Beautiful Beaches in the World. The rooms were spacious, clean and comfortable. Nothing like coming "Home" after sight seeing and a day at the beach in Beautiful Hawaii! We will definitely rent this place again! Aloha!

Owner's reply:

Beautiful home, spectacular view, best beach!

September 1, 2014

We loved our 8 day stay in Lanikai. The Lanikai Bay Beachside Home has a spectacular view of Lanikai Bay and the two islands. The house is beautiful with very nicely done hand painted wall murals that bring the feel of the outside in. I loved the open kitchen / eating area / living room and the expanses of glass that made the most of that incredible view. Whether we were cooling off in the little pool or sitting out on the lanai the view made us feel rich. The kitchen is large and had everything we needed. The master bedroom / bathroom are lovely with plenty of room and lots of storage space. The bedroom with the queen size bed had kind of a little kitchenette in it (mini-fridge, microwave, and sink) and shared a bathroom with the bedroom with two twin beds. The little pool off the living room was a special treat for my 3 1/2 year old Grandson who 'swam' daily both in the pool and at the beach. Lanikai beach is the best for children as the 'wavelets' are especially gentle and the slope into the water very gradual. As August is rather hot, we found late afternoon / early evening beach excursions to be a delight with the warm water, cooler air and no risk of sunburn. My two daughters (who each have their own kayak at home) enjoyed kayaking over to the island from the nearest beach entrance (#10 I think) which was a very short walk from the home. The nearest main Lanikai beach entrance (#7) was about a 15 minute walk though we ended up driving it (2 minutes) most of the time as my grandson struggled to manage the walk in the August heat and humidity. I think we could have stayed there forever.

Owner's reply:
