Please note: Booking is limited to comply with applicable by-laws. This property requires a signed rental contract to confirm reservations.

Walk through the entry gate, and find yourself in the middle of your own private personal resort. A lush tropical yard greets you as you walk past swaying palm trees to the front door of this unique Lanikai beach side home. The professionally landscaped property creates a welcoming, cool and private setting even on hot summer days. There is a tree house tucked inside the roots of the tree for the younger folks (and those young at heart). You just might have trouble pulling yourself (and the kids) away to get over to world famous Lanikai Beach with its powder-soft sand. But when you do, we'll make it easy for you with a ready supply of beach towels, beach equipment and a wide assortment of sand toys for the kids. This combined with this property's beach-side location, makes enjoying frequent trips to the beach a highlight. When you do come back to "your home away from home", take a dip in the beach-entry pool, or relax in your own private hot tub.

We are looking forward to sharing our "little piece of paradise" with you!

Lanikai beach with its powdery soft sand and gentle protected water is known as one of the best swimming beaches in the world. The Mokulua Islands off shore from Lanikai have been included in numerous advertisements and movies. The turquoise waters of Lanikai are a quick two-minute walk away. Take in the incredible scenery as you enter the beach, spend endless hours relaxing, swimming, snorkeling, or go for a stroll feeling the water at your feet, kayak out to the islands, see a turtle or two, and hike up the ridge line behind Lanikai for scenic vistas in all directions. Lanikai is also favored for its one-way loop circling through this beach side community, inviting joggers, mom's with their strollers, and people out for a walk.

The home is one of the last few Hawaiian style beach cottages offering its guests an exceptional setting and truly Hawaiian vacation experience. It is tastefully decorated. There are two master bedroom suites and all of the bedrooms have air-conditioning and a TV. The kitchen has marble counters and modern appliances. Hardwood floors throughout are easy on your barefoot feet. The house has an open floor-plan which is ideal for island-style living and delights with a casual elegance. It even boasts a rare fireplace (for Hawaii!!).

We welcome families with children. The yard is a child's paradise! However, we do not cater to guests expecting to entertain visitors (local or visiting friends and family staying at other accommodations). This property is suitable for a quiet vacation accommodation for registered guests. The home is part of the upscale community of Lanikai, a sub division of the town of Kailua, Oahu, Hawaii, and stands out even in Lanikai for its' quaint features and unique setting. Paradise awaits!!

About owner

We are a local family happy to share our little piece of paradise with you!

owner purchased this house in 1998

Why owner chose Oahu

Our home is modern, yet is a little piece of Hawaii of "yesteryear" era and charm rare to find these days. And, Lanikai beach with its powdery soft sand is unbeatably beautiful!

What makes this house unique

...a hop and a skip away from the beach without any hills or busy roads to manage :) makes trips to the beach a highlight.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have rented eleven houses in the Kailua area and this property is definitely the best by far! Looking at pictures it is often difficult to imagine a place. Well, this time, the reality way surpassed our imagination. The yard and house are absolutely what anyone could want when renting a property in Hawaii. The property is just a few steps down the road from the beach entrance; very close yet tucked away. The house itself is the perfect vacation home. Things are well maintained and clean; everything one might need. The house even comes with a manager and caretaker, which was a nice change from having to figure things out ourselves. Gary and Karen were very friendly and helpful, gave us lots of good tips for restaurants and sightseeing. Outstanding service! In terms of affordability, beauty and comfort, this house and its yard are definitely our favorite of all the houses we have stayed at! We'll be back!

Aloha from Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time at the Lanikai property. It was the perfect home base from which to explore the island and come back to at the end of each day and relax. All of the accommodations were as advertised - the pool, grounds, deck and house - very nice. The beach off Lanikai was one of the nicest we have ever been to and the town of Kailua, only a few minutes away, was the perfect place to run to for groceries, shopping or dinner. We have two teenage kids - 15 & 17 - and they loved it as well. I would bring my family back here anytime and recommend it to anyone looking for a vacation in paradise!

Great place to stay !

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay!

The house is well designed and very very clean. The ground with a huge banyan tree, many seating areas, very nice pool , separate hot tub is gorgeous.

You are very close to the beautiful Lanikai beach(short walk) and a short drive into Kailua town with many stores and restaurants .

Overall, this is a great place to stay.

We enjoyed our stay in this house very much and we´ll return next summer.

Property was immaculate

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying at your beautiful property. Ed and Janice made us feel welcome and gave us a tour upon arrival. The best attribute was by far the wonderful pool for kids to swim. Our daughter had a blast. The kitchen was perfect for cooking. Cold AC and comfortable beds made it easy for everyone to get a good night's sleep. I enjoyed the short hike to the top of the mountain. Our family also loved hanging at Lanikai Beach. We would definitely recommend your property to our friends and will be back. Mahalo!!

Privacy in Lanikai

  • 4 of 5

We have vacationed in Kauai for several years and always stay at the Grand Hyatt. It's a huge, beautiful resort and spa that sits right on Shipwreck Beach. This year, we wanted a different experience. We wanted more privacy and family time. This property was the perfect solution. It's like a tiny resort tucked into a lovely, quiet neighborhood that is located on one of the most beautiful beaches I've ever seen. If you want to live like a local and really relax, I highly recommend this property. The owners are very gracious and provide everything you need. The week before our trip they sent us a thorough email with all the specific details about the property and how to get there from the airport. Once we arrived we were welcomed by caretakers staying in the small studio guest house (the owners were in Europe). This couple made sure we were all set and had no questions. The studio guest house is near the pool, but the landscaping provides privacy and they were careful to make sure they did not intrude in any way.

I would say the only negative is that the great room was pretty warm...but all the bedrooms have AC window units and cool down completely. And honestly, if you're sitting in the house all day...why are you in Hawaii? The beach is literally across the street and pool and garden are so the fact that the main room was warm didn't really impact our stay. And, there is a great hike up the mountain that surrounds the neighborhood.

We can't wait to come back to this lovely home next summer.
