Lanikai house description

Enjoy the gentle breezes of outdoor living on the windward side of the island of Oahu. This two bedroom, 2,000+ sq. foot private Lanikai hillside home is on a quiet, dead-end street just a 5 minute walk to the widest section of Lanikai Beach. From our veranda you have unobstructed ocean views of all of Kailua Bay and the Mokulua Islands (the Mokes). The sunrises are spectacular, and when the full moon rises over the water with the Mokes as a backdrop? Breathtaking. In winter watch the breaching Humpback whales play just offshore.
The house is fully equipped with everything you need for your vacation, including all linens, towels and paper products. Just bring yourselves!
Our 6-person, fully automated, solar-heated natural salt hot tub was built-to-spec by Natural Salt Pools.

The house opens to a 900 sq. foot wrap-around veranda with extra large sliding glass doors to allow flow-through breezes throughout the house and 180 degree views of Lanikai Bay and the mountain behind the house.

Lanikai park, which has a new playground, a basketball court, an open field, and a workout station, is located conveniently at the bottom of our hill. If you enjoy an early morning jog or a late afternoon walk, our 2.2 mile Lanikai loop is just the place. There is also a trail behind the house which leads to several World War II bunkers, perched at the top of the mountain, allowing for even more spectacular views of Lanikai Bay and the Mokulua Islands.

                              We are a 5 minute walk from Lanikai beach and a 10 minute walk to Kailua beach.

                              The bay is perfect for swimming every day and kite surfing, windsurfing and boogie boarding on windy days and kayaking when it's calmer. The water is clean, clear and warm with white sand. Lanikai has a 2.2 mile bike/jogging path and hiking on the mountain behind the house. Kailua town is 5 minutes by car for shopping and restaurants. There is a bus stop at the bottom of our hill if you don't have a car, but a car is recommended. Waimanalo beach, another gorgeous beach, is 15 minutes away by car.

                              About the owner: I am originally from CT, raised my children in Asia, and bought my piece of paradise in 1993. I built a vacation rental home on the property in 2007.

                              Why the Owner Chose Lanikai:
                              It was too beautiful a spot to allow it to remain unappreciated!
