Beautiful home in beautiful Lanikai
Beautiful home in beautiful Lanikai
We rented this beautiful home for a week. If your looking for a quiet place with a great beach this is it! We enjoyed the home, back yard, BBQ area and jacuzzi. It's a 3 minute walk at most to the most beautiful beach. Tekla the owner has thought of everything...beach towels, mats, coolers, beach chairs and access to bikes which we rode into town. Lanikai is like no other you will not be disappointed! The home has a great layout plenty of room for everyone. The decor is simple, clean and fun. The breeze that flows through this house is amazing. There are plenty of windows throughout the home and great ceiling fans. We rent homes from VRBO all the time. This by far is my favorite! We will definately be back.

About the owner: Aloha! A greeting with true meaning. It took raising my own children and the neighborhoods' to appreciate and respect the meaning of Aloha. If Aloha was global... the world would be in better shape. Our family has lived in Lanikai, Kailua on Oahu for 23 years. We are transplants from the San Francisco Bay Area and have raised 2 Kamaainas (children of the land) in this home. We love our community and look forward to visitors wanting a connection with the community that surrounds. We feel fortunate to be residents, we hope our guests will feel a part of the spirit and garner the respect that we have acquired from appreciating our fortune to live in such a heavenly place. The night sky from the spa will comfort you and the morning sunrise will tease your senses. Aloha Kakou!
Why the Owner Chose Lanikai:
Our children have gone off to college and this was a wonderful opportunity to continue to cultivate our gift of living here and sharing it with others.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
So comfortable, convenient, easy and charming...why leave! The beach is across the street, your neighbors are up bright and early, appreciating the birds and their songs. The scents attract and the calm of the surrounding soothes.
