Recent Lanikai reviews

  • Highly recommended

    "Our week at the Lanikai bungalow with its feel of a laid-back treehouse was the perfect setting for a second honeymoon. A relaxed, homey respite that was perfect for our needs. Though the weather was hot and humid, the ceiling fans and two lanais provided cool breezes. One night we had a huge thunderstorm that was kind of exciting! Lynn and her son who live in the main house were wonderful hosts, completely unobtrusive but very helpful when we needed them. We walked to the fabulous Lanikai beaches, climbed the Pillbox Hiking Trail and had a couple of easy day trips to Honolulu for the ukelele festival and the newest Pearl Harbor exhibits. The only thing we regret is not kayaking out to the Mokulua Islands. Next time..."

  • England to Oahu

    "I choose this property to rent because it was older and had character. I read the reviews and did wonder about the one bathroom but loved the location. Four of us travelled over 7,000 miles and arrived at this house at almost midnight. Lights were subtle and quiet music welcomed us along with a gift of goodies. Nothing could have prepared us for the way the warmth of this home wrapped itself around us and made us welcome. The family and their friends were truly lovely and included us so we gained the experience of Hawaiian life that we could not have had in a hotel. If we had a problem or needed information nothing was too much trouble and all done in a non intrusive way. Just ask. The one bathroom proved no problem for four adults, we just communicated. We could cook, wash, eat, relax, paint, read, walk or just pop over to the ocean or go off sighseeing in our own time and at our own pace and return home to the welcome of this quirky wonderful home. The beds were so comfortable, the house was clean. We had an amazing holiday enhanced by this home and this family. Mahalo. I hope to return one day."

  • Amazing, relaxing, fabulous property!

    "We ABSOLUTELY LOVE LOVE this house! This is our 2nd year we've rented this house for 5 weeks straight and couldn't have been happier. The house is exceptionally well laid out. We have two little girls who share the back room (w/its own bathroom) while the master overlooks the beautiful ocean and has an enormous bathroom. Then there are two other bedrooms situated across the way which is perfect for guests with their own bathroom and ocean view. We really enjoy renting a house that is ON THE WATER with an enclosed yard for our kids. Some of our favorite activity is to relax in the back yard with a class of wine while watching the paddlers and turtles go by. The sunrise/sunsets are beautiful and breathtaking! Having two little kids, we essentially park ourselves at the house and enjoy the yard, beach and home cooking with the fully stocked kitchen. Really can't ask for anything more. If you are looking for a well maintained, updated house in great condition, this is the one. We are regular summer renters in Lanikai and Myra's house is the best. To give you an idea, we adjust our schedules to make sure we can rent Myra's beach house."

  • Comfort of home - turned our "trip" into a "Vacation"

    "I recently had the opportunity to extend a business trip and invite my small family along with me. This was our third and final location of the trip, and turned our trip into a vacation. We first stayed at a hotel in Waikiki (due to business needs), then an Air BNB location in Kaneohe Bay area (great view - but that was all). Landing at the Surf Hale, and having the guidance of Carly and Jeff was just what we needed. Connecting with Carly was easy and timely. Working with her either by text or e-mail we sorted the whole thing out, and got payment arranged via PayPal which was convenient also. The photos and description are accurate, the only difference is that some of the furniture was moved around. All in all it was very convenient and comfortable. There were three of us (myself, my wife, and 7 year old son) and it fit well. The kitchen wasn't huge, but right sized to let us create small meals easily. The walk to the beach was 5 minutes at most to Kailua Beach Park (seems like local hang out, with decent waves for the little grommets), and maybe another 3-5 minutes if you want to head to Lanikai Beach (highly recommended for snorkeling and floating... and just sun soaking). We were a short 5 minute drive from downtown Kailua. We also discovered that her comment about local "wildlife" was accurate as well. We spotted any number of lizards and geckos (my son was pretty excited about that), and had a regular cardinal come and sing to us on the patio in the morning. We should have paid more attention to the comment, and not left our bananas out through the night. It seems that local mice appreciate bananas and one helped himself to about half of a banana. We didn't see him or have anything else nibbled on for the remainder of the trip, so I guess he got his fill. We didn't use the kitchen too much, because Carly and Jeff guided us to a few good spots for food. The first was Kalapawai Cafe. You could get small meals, easy stuff for kids (including PB&J), or something more exotic and island focused (like striped marlin over lemongrass risotto). We also tried out Cactus, a (light?) Mexican restaurant that had island flavor. Not sure exactly how I'd classify it, but when we return to the area we'll go there again. Last we went to Kailua General Store for light fluffy shave ice. If we find ourselves back on Oahu we'll definitely seek out Carly and Jeff to see if the Surf Hale is available. Great spot to relax and enjoy."
