Lanikai studio description
Come stay at our award winning, Hawaiian style living rentals just steps to Lanikai Beach twice rated the #1 beach in the world! A very versatile and private estate in a grand location in Lanikai where all you hear are the birds chirping in the day and the ocean hitting the reef at night!
We have two studio units (one with an adjoining bedroom unit) that are all decorated in elegant Hawaiiana decor! The units are very private with their own entry. An additional upstairs bedroom is available for larger parties.
The studios are separated by an amazing outdoor kitchen. Only in Hawaii could you have this! The kitchen includes granite countertops, a gas grill with 4 burners, quesadilla maker, microwave, blender, toaster oven, wine & beverage cooler, George Foreman grill, full line of cookware & serviceware for 12. Everything needed to prepare complete meals.
Each studio unit comes with a full bathroom, tropical ceiling fans, towels for bath and beach, linens, stereo, and cable TV w/ DVD player.
Unit 1 (studio): The Palm Tree Plantation Room is air-conditioned and has a Cal-king bed and a Tommy Bahama queen sofa bed. It sleeps 2-3 adults.
Unit 2 (bedroom): Adjoins the Palm Tree Plantation Studio and has two twin beds that can convert to Cal-King. Air-conditioned.
Unit 3 (studio): The Sunshine Wicker Room is a totally separate unit that has a queen bed, couch, room for a child's floor futon, a private study. This studio also has a 300 SF large private deck off the entrance with a bistro table, chairs & sofa.
Unit 4 (studio): Upstairs corner unit with private stair, bathroom, large lanai with kitchenette, dining table and chairs, and sofa. Very private and ideal for honeymooners.
We are very kid friendly and our units are child-safe! They are also romantic and private... you go to bed with the sound of the ocean and awaken to the birds. You can rent all units - amenities included - and have more space than houses nearby at a fraction of the cost. Or rent one studio unit if there are just two of you.
In addition to the chef style kitchen where you cook and listen to the ocean or your favorite CD, be sure and make it a real party and grab an ice cold beverage of your choice and toss a log in the fire pit (yes in Hawaii). We have a large enclosed gazebo with a 8 person granite table, great for dining or talking story or playing games.
A favorite of all is our private 8 person dipping pool with 88 jets & a stereo system. After a long day in paradise and a great meal, an afternoon dip in the big pool (Pacific Ocean) followed by a soak in the dipping pool, you will sleep like a baby! We also have an bamboo-enclosed outdoor hot/cold shower to rinse off.
We have two double man kayaks, two longboards, boogie boards, snorkel gear, beach chairs, umbrellas, mats, coolers, bicycles, beach toys, & much more to use during your stay.
Oahu offers a lot, and Lanikai even more. We supply you with maps, details, and most accessories needed... which saves you a lot of time and money. You'll love our convenient airport pick-up and drop-off service, with rental vehicles waiting for you at our property.
Private masseuse are available for hire during your stay.
Private island tours are available.
Private surfing lessons are available.
Lanikai Plantations is great for families of all sizes, a business trip, or a romantic honeymoon. We are very child friendly and located in an exclusive, private, beautiful, secluded neighborhood. It is very peaceful and safe in Lanikai and you will see walkers and joggers at all times of the day and night.
Vibrant Kailua town is just a five-minute drive away, and another 20 minute drive to downtown Honolulu.

ReviewsWrite a review
I had the pleasure of staying in the Bamboo Room and also renting a car with the Lanikai Plantation. The owner's went above and beyond to accommodate me during my stay. I was looking for a clean, quiet, Hawaiian style get away and that's exactly what I got. I would recommend this listing without hesitation.

Owner response: We look forward to your next longer stay w\your very cute daughter. warm aloha:).
We have stayed at this residence twice now and each time Lori and Bob have been excellent hosts. The accommodations are clean and there is everything you will need from bikes to beach chairs. The outside sitting area and kitchen works very well and there is also a vehicle available that Lori will rent to you. The beaches are all close by and this neighbourhood is quiet and well placed for evenings walks etc. I will be coming back here again.

The accommodations are amazing. The owners were very helpful and hospitable. Very great area to stay in and very private. Great beaches and islands to explore. All the snorkel gear and kayaks you need are supplied. Kailua is not far away and has lots of good shopping and restruants. The local coffee shop kalapawai market is a great place for a fresh cup of coffee and a sandwich. Boots and kimos is a definite stop needed on your vacation. Best macadamia nut banana pancakes we have ever had. Lori and Bob made the holiday a great time. I would like to thank you guys for the warm welcome and for letting us stay in the palm tree double. Looking forward to the next vacation with Bob and Lori of Laniki. Thanks again Amanda & James

Lanikai is amazing!!!
Lanikai is amazing!!!
My husband and I stayed in the Sunshine Room. It was very clean and offered everything we needed. Waking up to the sound of the birds singing each morning felt like paradise. Lori and Bob are very kind people and make every effort to ensure that you are having a fun experience. They offer many tips on what to do and see. All the water toys they have make going to the beach a pleasure! Lanikai beach is amazing! The sand is like talcum powder. The water was calm enough that we felt very comfortable going in for a swim. The house is an easy 5-10 minute walk from the beach (and it's not crowded at all). We could have spent everyday at the beach, but we did break away for some sightseeing. The Chief's Luau is a must see! We absolutely loved our time at Lori and Bob's in Lanikai area. We would recommend it to friends and family. We hope to return one day! Thanks again Lori and Bob!

Owner response: Aloha & Cheers to our dear Canadians; You must come back soon as we owe you that BBQ together...... I think you got too busy taking in PARADISE:). I am sooo happy you enjoyed the Luau!. However we must agree there is no place in the world that holds a chance vs PRIVATE LANIKAI BEACH:))). We only allow Canadians and those other lucky one's out there. We hope to see you soon and those Canadian roots outfits you sent for our grand daughter are too cute for words. Big Mahalo to you both.
Great Canadian Hideaway!

Thanks so much for making our stay so wonderful. We stayed in the Bamboo Room. This was our first visit to Hawaii and Lori made all efforts to make our stay an amazing experience. She is kind and giving. The dogs were so wonderful. Bob made every effort to help. The airport pick-up and drop-off was an amazing perk. What a great experience!! I would definately recommend this place to any visitors. Thank-you again for a safe, clean and fun place to stay on our vacation!

Perfect Anniversary Getaway
Perfect Anniversary Getaway
After stumbling upon the beauty of Lanikai beach through a google search I immediately started looking for a place to stay for my husband and I to celebrate our one year wedding anniversary. With only a couple of weeks to plan, there was little left available. Lori was quick to respond to my emails, and after speaking with her on the phone I knew we were destined for a spectacular vacation! Lori is an energetic person with all the information anyone could need to truly soak up the island in local style. We were greeted at the airport with the warmest Aloha by her husband Bob. Vehicle rentals were available to us through Lori and Bob which really made travelling simple and easy. The accommodations are stunning!! The rooms are tidy and have unique personality of their own, and the property is luxurious. It is the perfect spot to relax after a long day of activities! Kayaks, boogie boards, snorkels and fins, beach towels and mats, everything was available for us to use and in great condition. Having all of these services included in the nightly rate really made a difference in the cost of the vacation for us, and allowed us to take in more activities than we would have without them. We kayaked over to the Mokes on our second day, and the house is just a couple minute walk from the ocean access. Everything was just so easy! A close distance to Kailua town made shopping easy. We walked, cycled, and drove into town and each time was a fun experience. The scenery is truly like none other! Lori and Bob made our vacation memorable! They are full of fun stories about the island, and instantly make you feel like part of their family. They are both so open and welcoming, but they also understand the need for privacy. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the outdoor spaces. We cooked dinner every night in the outdoor kitchen, ate at the outdoor patio, lounged in the lawn chairs and soaked up a lot of time in the hot tub. We really felt at home, and it was nice to feel that this magnificent property was our home. Their two dogs also added to the welcoming experience. They are sweet as ever, and made us miss our puppy back home a little bit less. Overall, this vacation exceeded our expectations. We couldn't have asked for more. We stayed in the sunshine wicker room, and it was charming and bright with an oh-so comfortable bed. The property is beautiful and close to the beach. We would love to go back! We highly recommend staying here!

So Blessed For This Opportunity
So Blessed For This Opportunity
My two brothers and I are from Maui and we needed a place to stay while attending my nephews State Soccer Tournament and to celebrate our Dad's 73rd Birthday. We looked high and low for a hotel when I saw the Palm Tree Suites on the website. We were so blessed to meet both Laurie and Bob and have a chance to stay in this beautiful retreat where we were able to bond again as a family. We loved the idea of walking to the beautiful fine white sand beaches for a dip in the water first thing in the morning to start our day then to end the evening with cooking in the outdoor kitchen while soaking in the awesome jacuzzi. We couldn't have found better accommodations than this. BLESSED...sums it all up!

Lanikai/Oahu - truly paradise on Earth!!!!
Lanikai/Oahu - truly paradise on Earth!!!!
My husband and two of our children (daughters 12 & 9 yrs) visited Oahu for our dear friends' wedding over Thanksgiving. We had the trip of a lifetime! So happy our friends chose to stay in the Lanikai/Kailua area - the best way to truly experience the island life. The Plantation Suites were spacious and very clean. The outdoor kitchen was a fun new experience and as the Mom and main chef, I appreciated being outside where the action was with the kids having fun in the dipping pool. Our most favorite experience of our trip was kayaking to the Mokes, and we so appreciated Lori & Bob sharing their sea kayaking equipment so we could go several times over our week with them. We felt we were staying in the guesthouse of a mansion and really got a feel for what it might be like to be a local. The walk to the little beach to kayak is one block – so great! Several blocks more to the big Lanikai beach but there’s a wagon to use and still very easy. Quick drive to groceries & local spots to dine in Kailua – we love the Safeway and Maui Tacos, and Big City Diner. The unit is so close to so much – Lanikai Beach, the Mokes, hiking the Lanikai Bunkers, Kailua beach – and it’s an easy & scenic drive to other Oahu destinations – Hunama Bay, Koko Crater, Diamond Head Crater, Waikiki. We loved it & will definitely be going back to Oahu and the Lanikai Plantation Suites! Mahalo Bob & Lori! Aloha!!!

Wonderful Hospitality and Amenities
Wonderful Hospitality and Amenities
My two friends and I stayed at the Palm Tree Plantation Studio and had a fabulous time at Lanikai. Being from Hawaii, I wanted my friends to have a more local and less touristy experience. Lanikai has always been a favorite swimming spot of mine, and staying here was marvelous. The place was clean, comfortable, and very relaxing. Lori and Bob were outstanding hosts and very hospitable. Their 2 dogs are some of the sweetest and best behaved dogs I have been around. I would definitely recommend this place to family and friends visiting O'ahu.

Owner response: Sheri; please consider this your home away from home whenever you are in the islands:).
My girlfriend and I recently stayed at Lanikai Plantation for a week. I enjoyed the outdoor kitchen; being able to prepare our own meals was a real +. The owners were very kind and helpful in giving advice on places to see and restaurants and stores to visit. The rental is just around the corner from one of the most beautiful beaches in world.........wonderful place. We highly recommend staying here. Aloha ( learned that during my visit :) )
