Lanikai Loft is located across the street from the most scenic beach in the US and is like living in the trees with a wonderful view of the mountains, yard and partial ocean view. Access to swimming and kayaking is just across the street. The Mokulua Islands are just a short paddle (20 minutes) away. We have kayaks for rent on site and free bicycles. We also have a guide onsite who can give you a tour of the islands. The ridge hike (also 20 minutes) gives you a great view of the entire area from Lanikai to Kailua.
The loft design is a complete one bedroom apt and is very open with lots of windows. There is a view from almost any window and very good cross ventilation to take advantage of the ocean breezes. There are three sliding doors onto the lanais. We have two lanais to take advantage of for lounging and eating. The bathroom is large and has a soaking bathtub. The bedroom is also large and private from the rest of the unit. The loft is sitting above and off to the side of the house and is entirely private with an entrance under the carport. The property has a photovoltaic system which captures the sunlight to provide electricity for the whole facility. There is no carbon footprint. The flooring is bamboo and has area carpets as coverings. The laundry area is downstairs. Most of the beach necessities - umbrella, chairs, coolers beach towels etc. are available. Owner is onsite to meet all needs. This is a non smoking residence.
We offer grocery service to those who would like to have amenities/food upon arrival. Please ask owner for more information.
We have reserved off street parking for one car. The bus stop is across the street. There is a walking, bike path across the street which circles the community of Lanikai (about 2 miles).
The closest town (Kailua) is about 2 miles away and is a very comfortable town for walking and shopping. There are lots of restaurants, grocery stores and a department store.
I have a one bedroom cottage located on the backside of the property. It is very private and has it's own yard. If you book both properties you could accomodate two parties of a total of 6 people. The other property is Lanikai Bungalow vrbo 45505.

About the owner: I raised my children in the house located on the property and have lived in Lanikai since 1977. I love hosting guests as it is a very enriching experience and made several friends as a result.
Why the Owner Chose Lanikai: This has been my home since 1980 and the loft was built onto the top of the existing house in 2001.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment: Kailua is a fun town to spend time in. There are lots of good restaurants, antique shops and many interesting mom-and-pop businesses. The ocean sports are world class. Especially fun is exploring the three islands that are off-shore. The ridge hike gives guests an instant feeling of place since it has a view in any direction. The Lanikai loop is about 2-1/2 miles and there is a dedicated walking biking path so it is very convenient and safe to walk, bike, or run.
