  • A Paradise Compound

    "There were 6 of us - 3 married couples - and the space was more than plentiful. The design and location of the house was unreal, as we all walked through the gate our jaws dropped thinking "this is all ours for the week?!" My husband and I have been all over Oahu and this beach - Lanikai - is by far the most incredible beach we have seen of the Islands we have visited (Kauai, Maui and Oahu). Warm, crystal clear turquoise water, fine white sand and the house made it so that we had no reason to leave. Mornings would start with a quick steam in the steam room, immediately followed by a dip in the ocean then a nice breakfast in the front yard under the gorgeous Balinese wood carved terrace. We are a very active group and the options are unlimited with the private beach access. Make sure to paddle out to the Moku islands for the day and don't be surprised if you find sea turtles swimming under you! Shopping is a quick 10 minute drive into Kailua and if you are into hiking you can do the Pillbox hike that holds an incredible view, not too difficult either. The owner was very sweet, spunky and welcoming and had a folder with a variety of restaurant/activity recommendations. We made some unforgettable memories here and plan on returning. You'd be crazy not to stay here if you plan on staying on the East side, or even on the island in general!"

  • Must stay here!

    "As soon as you walk into the studio you are blown away by the breathtaking view, the patio, and the cleanliness of the studio! Had an absolutely fabulous time, Noni was a great host and was so accommodating (especially when it rained!). The studio is located right in between Kailua and Lanikai beaches which were incredible and only a short walk away. We will definitely be back!"

    "Thank you Jean and Doug. We enjoyed our 35 day stay at this fine example of Old Hawaii.Only a 10 minute walk from the main beach at Lanikai ( voted #1 beach in Hawaii by Travel TV).Great location, very peaceful and wonderful owners to work with. Thank you again for making your home available. We hope to return to Lanikai in the future and would not hesitate to stay here again. Greg and Joyce"

  • Incredible View, Awesome House, Perfect Location!

    "I was fortunate to be able to stay at Honu Hale Lanikai with my Mother and 2 of her good friends for 2 weeks. I'm their designated driver...it's a dirty job but someone's go to do it! A few years back we stayed in Kailua and discovered Lanikai and we have been hooked ever since! Our family owns a cottage on a tiny island in The Bahamas and we know great beaches and Lanikai is among the BEST! So to be able to stay right there with that gorgeous water and the Mokes as our view was absolutely incredible! The house is extremely well appointed and was very clean. It's amazing how many extras there are: beach chairs, boogie boards, noodles, outdoor furniture, plenty of extra towels (including beach towels) and sheets, everything for the kitchen even a salad spinner! We love to cook and a well stocked kitchen is so greatly appreciated. There is no dishwasher (not a worry at all for us!) but there is a washer and dryer. The photos of the house are very accurate and as far as the location description the only 'problem' is that the stairs down to the water seem to have deteriorated since the photo was taken. They are not easy to climb (very rough and slippery) so to gain access to the water you have to walk to the other side of the Paul Mitchell estate or 2 houses down the other way. Definitely NOT a big deal! Speaking of the Paul Mitchell estate, it is gorgeous and according to their website it rents for $7200-9300.00 per night and Honu Hale Lanikai has the exact same view! To access the beach from the house, you can walk (it's about 1/4 mile) or drive there and park. Or you can do what I did a few times and walk or swim in the water, maybe you'll see a turtle! Kailua has 3 supermarkets, a Whole Foods and a Sunday morning Farmers Market, so it's very easy to get great produce. We got lucky a few times buying fresh fish along the way to Haleiwa, look for signs along the Kamehameha Hwy. Getting to Honolulu on the Pali is fast and easy. We went to the Academy of Arts that has a couple of wonderful exhibits, Art Deco in Hawaii and Natural Unnatural Supernatural. Lunch there is very good. Also we had lunch at the Hao Tree at the New Otani in Waikiki and it is awesome! The salmon eggs benedict was incredible. We had an absolutely fabulous time. If you are considering a stay on Oahu, look no further. Honu Hale Lanikai is perfect! Mahalo John for opening up your lovely home to us, we can't wait to come back."
