Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

About the owner: We have been in Hawaii for many years. My husband born and raised here on Oahu He moved to Kailua when he was very young . He has surfed for many years both board and body can tell you good spots for experienced and beginners .

Why the Owner Chose Kailua:
This is a unique and private community. Lanikai is located close to the all that you might be interested in seeing on Ohau . The completion of H3 HWY has made it possible to get from Kailua to Pearl Harbor, Waikele Premium Outlets,North Shore Big waves great surf spots I might add no traffic on H3. Going from Lanikai to Sandy Beach , Makapu'u ,Sea Life Park, and Hanauma Bay are all about 30 minute drive on Kalaniana'ole HWY

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Beaches here are beautiful we exercise and walk and jog and bike. We can relax and have quiet hours for reading and resting. We are a short 3 minute walk to the beach. Every morning you can enjoy a nice private walk on the beach with beautiful fine white sand and than come home for coffee and enjoy the tropical setting off your lanai or if you prefer you can go to a local coffee shop just off Kailua Beach. Bikes are also available in Kailua for biking the trails and just getting around Kailua There are several areas for hiking. One that is quite enjoyable when you get to the top that overlooks all of Lanikai.
