Compliments For Keeping This Special Place So Nice
Teresa & the Johnston Family! It has been a few years since the last stay and our compliments to you all for keeping this special place so nice! The setting and proximity to the beautiful beaches has been enjoyed again. The Lanikai Community has a pace and warmth that makes it a truly Hawaiian vacation! Best wishes to you all going forward and we will always check in here first to see if it is available! Our grandsons really enjoyed the pool and waterfall! Mahalo! Pat & Mike

Lanikai Is By Far Our Favorite Area
Dear Teresa, Thank you for letting us stay here at your studio. In addition thank you for showing us where everything is on the map. Another bonus was letting us use your ocean toys. Seva (3 years old) likes the swimming pool! Also Seva liked staying in the studio. Mahalo, Ken (13 years old.) Dear Teresa, We had a wonderful time and appreciated all the accommodations! We didn't have to purchase any sand toys and we really were thankful for the beach towels! We have been to other parts of Hawaii and this is by far our favorite area. Thanks again, Molly & Dan P.S. We are a family of five (two teens and one toddler) we were very comfortable in the studio!

Your Accommodation is Superior to Others
Teresa, Nikki and Johnston Family, Thank you very much for our peaceful, comfortable time in Lanikai. Very professional but also personable. Your warm hospitality is much appreciated. Your accommodation is superior to others, especially with the washer/dryer and kitchenette. You treated us the way you want to be treated. Thank you again, Mako & Akane.

A Comfy Home Away From Home
Teresa, Thanks a million for a comfy home away from home. You've thought of every detail and we truly appreciate it! It's been an amazing four nights - would love to stay, but North Shore is calling us! Mahalo

The Studio is Well-Stocked
Teresa, We thoroughly enjoyed our Lanikai stay and your hospitality. The studio is well-stocked and served as homebase as we explored the island. Great snorkeling at Kuailima Dr. and Kaiolena Dr. access paths. Best body surfing and boogie boarding at Kalama Beach, 248 N Kalaheo. Gentle waves, family friendly North Shore beach = Kuilima Cove, snorkel and swim with green sea turtles. Best shrimp truck = Giovanni's. Leave early for Hana'uma Bay, definitely worth the trip. Enjoyed the Waikiki Aquarium also. If you're interested in Chinese culture be sure to put Chinatown on your to-do list. Kailua eats = Fat Boys, Noodle House next to Coldstone, The Food Company, Yogurt Mama and Island Snow for shave ice. Mahalo & Aloha.

Such a Wonderful Place to Relax
Teresa, Thank you for such a wonderful place to relax and enjoy Hawaii. We loved the beautiful beach and had a nice time using the pool. Loved having the delicious fresh fruit and will miss it at home in Chicago. We would love to come back in the future. Hawaii is a beautiful place and I'm glad that we came here. Aloha!

What A Treat Being Able To Walk To The BeachGuest comment entered by owner
What A Treat Being Able To Walk To The Beach
Teresa, Thanks so much for a wonderful stay! The studio is well appointed, the neighborhood quiet and friendly, the hostess so gracious! What a treat being able to walk to the beach. Access #5 was our favorite (opposite Kaiolena Drive.) It is a short walk, has reef structure and a wide sandy beach. As snorkelers, we appreciated the many fish and saw sea turtles at all the access paths. Kailua has so many good restaurants. We liked Cinnamon's (get there early for breakfast,) Formaggio Grill, Buzz's Steakhouse and Uahi Island Grill. Good Snorkel Sites: Beach access #5, Mokulua Drive; Waimea Bay (North Shore - about a one hour drive); Sharks Cove (North Shore); Hana'uma Bay (the best - 35 minute drive, get there early - crowded but incredible! Don't miss The Arizona Memorial and associated sites. Sincerely, Dick & Jean

Your Lovely StudioGuest comment entered by owner
Your Lovely Studio
Terry & Family, We so appreciated our stay in your lovely studio. It was so fun to return to my Lanikai roots and see all of you and "the gang." We enjoyed poking around Lanikai and seeing what was the same (the Mokulua Islands) and what was different (our old house, and the beach is on the other end.) Lots has changed but the feeling I get on the beach looking out at the ocean and Mokuluas and up at the hills and pillboxes is the same. Thanks also for the BBQ dinner with old friends - great times! Great to see you again. Love & Aloha always.

Next Time I Will Stay For Two Weeks!
Dear Teresa, Thank you for having us here at your Lanikai studio, it feels just like home. The studio is perfect for a small family like us, convenient and quiet. We had a wonderful vacation thanks to you and your family. The town is so peaceful and beautiful, I haven't had enough of it, and same with the kids. I gotta say the pool is a love of our family. After hours of playing on the beach, we just "floated around" in the pool and let the kids, with their life-vests on, enjoy the calm water. We have done many things this time, but mainly stayed around Lanikai and Kailua - already worth the money. My family and I will be back for more, and the next time around, I will stay for two weeks - seems to me that one week is too short for both Lanikai and Kailua beaches. Thank you again for everything.

We Felt Like We Were 'Coming Home'
Teresa, We had a great time staying in Lanikai! Thanks for your hospitality and warm aloha spirit. We felt like we were 'coming home' each night rather than checking in to a hotel. Thanks for helping us have such a wonderful vacation. The studio fit our family well - 2 adults, 2 kids, and a baby... very peaceful and relaxing environment. Everyone left great comments and recommendations... we'd like to add one place to the list: "Teddy's Bigger Burgers" (next to Starbucks) has got to be one of the best burgers on the island! Aloha.
