Special offer: October LAST MINUTE SPECIAL
As you open the gate, you enter your own personal retreat, lush lawns, swaying palm trees, the soothing sound of water falls. A majestic Banyan tree frames this beautiful Lanikai beachside home and cottage and creates a welcoming, cool and unique setting even on hot summer days. You just might have trouble pulling yourself away to get over to world famous Lanikai Beach.
Lanikai beach with its' powdery soft sand and gentle protected water is known as one of the best swimming beaches in the world. The Mokulua Islands off shore from Lanikai have been included in numerous advertisements and movies. The turquoise waters of Lanikai are less than a half block, only a hop and a skip, approximately a 2 minute walk away. Take in the incredible scenery as you enter the beach, spend endless hours relaxing, swimming, snorkling, or go for a stroll feeling the water at your feet, kayak out to the islands, see a turtle or two, and hike up the ridgeline behind Lanikai for scenic vistas in all directions. Lanikai is also favored for its one-way loop circling through this beachside community, inviting joggers and people out for a leisurely walk.
This brand-new deluxe studio-cottage has a typical Hawaiian flair with its large sliding doors opening unto a small private fenced-off garden with a deck. You will find an outside dining table and chairs; a hammock nestled inside the banyan tree; a teak daybed tucked into a corner of the yard; a BBQ and private hot tub. It offers its' guests an exceptional setting and truly Hawaiian vacation experience. The cottage is tastefully decorated and newly built in 2012. The bali-inspired wooden carved plumeria panels hide a queen murphy bed with top-quality mattress; you'll find stylish living room furniture, hardwood floors, lava rock posts, a European-design style bookcase and a TV. The kitchenette has granite counters (resembling sand on a beach) and a full-size refrigerator, toaster-convection oven, double hot plate, coffee maker, microwave, blender and hot water kettle. Hardwood floors throughout are easy on your barefoot feet. The cottage has an open floor plan, which is ideal for island-style living and delights with a casual elegance. It has a large shower stall and bathroom vanity with marble countertops. The main house is mostly hidden by a magnificent banyan tree. Tall hedges ensure privacy and a ready supply of beach equipment make frequent trips to the beach easy. The use of two kayaks is available to guests. We treasure our property as a 'retreat' and it is therefore suitable for a quiet vacation accommodation for registered guests. We do not cater to guests expecting to entertain visitors (local or visiting friends and family staying at other accommodations). This mini-estate is part of the upscale community of Lanikai, a sub division of the town of Kailua, Oahu, Hawaii, and stands out even in Lanikai for its' quaint features and unique setting.

'What an incredible property! We could barely get to any of the 'touristy' things we had wanted to do because we just couldn't tear ourselves out of that yard! It is impossible to capture in pictures, but you really feel like you're in the Garden of Eden. We are already planing our next month-long getaway". Janice, Charlotte, NC, 6.10.08
'As we were walking around the loop this morning I commented to my wife how one tends to form an image of a place one plans to visit before seeing it, and how rare it is that the reality surpasses the self created image. Your place, however, sure exceeded my expectations. We love it. I am sure you’ve heard all the superlatives before, and indeed thought them yourselves, but it is, truly, a lovely, lovely place! This is the sixth cottage we’ve rented for a summer month in Kailua, and the fourth in Lanikai. In terms of sheer loveliness, cottage and garden, it is honestly my favorite among the cottages we’ve rented.' Arlo, Japan, 7.10.09
'This is a little piece of paradise! What a great place to stay. It was very windy while we were there, and instead of braving the sandstorm on the beach we could just lie in the yard, in the middle of the amazing (and private) garden. Very quiet and peaceful! I will miss breakfast under the Banyan tree, listening to the birds, going to Baci's Bistro (best food in the world, seriously). The cottage is clean and well equipped - it is definitely a home, not just a rental accommodation, and perfect for a monthly stay. Thank you for sharing it with us!' Kara, Nanaimo, BC, 3.6.10
'We arrived home today after a looooong trip from Hawaii. I wanted to let you know how absolutely perfect we found your cottage. It is such a beautiful, peaceful, wonderful spot. You have created something very special. I am so happy that we chose to rent your cottage for our summer month stay in Kailua. It was perfect for us!' Louise, Bedford, MA, 4.3.10
