About Noni

Owner is also a school teacher and an artist, with work showing in galleries and shops in Kailua, Honolulu, and neighbor islands.

Why Noni chose Lanikai

Just read the reviews. It's comfy, cozy, and has all the comforts with a dynamite view. The location is extremely convenient for walking to either Lanikai or Kailua Beach, Buzz's, Kalapawai Market, and the Lanikai trail.

What makes this cottage unique

The location is on the front end of Lanikai so very easy to walk to either Lanikai or Kailua Beach, Kalapawai Market for coffee or Buzz's for dinner.

Wonderful little cottage in excellent location between Kailua and lanikai beaches

  • 4 of 5

Great location- both beautiful beaches were very close although we preferred lanikai. Close to the pillbox hike trailhead, and a kids playground all within walking distance. Plenty of room for family of 4. View was spectacular, and awesome patio and outdoor space. Noni was very friendly and helpful. Buzz’s was a short walk away and is DELICIOUS!!!!

Cottage is old but obviously maintained with love.

Loved staying here- thanks Noni!!

one of my best vacation in my life!

  • 5 of 5

First of all, I appreciate on Noni. She always try to make us to be comfortable. Whenever I needed some help from her, she always respond and help us quickly and kindly. Moreover, the lanikai beach view from the house was fantastic. I was impressed to see sun rise from the house every in the morning even sometimes cloud hided the sun which was also lovely and beutiful scene. A/C was definitely necessary in this house because the breeze from outside always made us cool enough. I and my family will never forget this cottage and the owner Noni. If i should visit Hawaii again, i will come here again! Thanks Noni take good care of you and your familly.

What a wonderful week!

  • 5 of 5

We spent eight nights in Noni's Lanikai cottage and couldn't be more pleased. It was everything we hoped and expected it to be. Beautiful view, very comfortable ocean breezes. Just a joy. Very short walk to the beach. 5 minute drive to Kailua town. Noni was very helpful and kind to make sure we had everything we needed. We would definitely stay there again.

Charming island living experience

  • 5 of 5

This was a father/son trip and we had a wonderful, relaxing visit. The views and breezes were renewing.

Noni was generous with her beach toys, which my son and I used a few times. Although we guys didn't use the kitchen much, I could see that it was well stocked. Restaurants and shopping were a short drive away. I am originally from Oahu and enjoyed talking with Noni about my favorite part of the island. I hope to return again to enjoy this fabulous view!!!

Best location and view, cute house

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at this house. The house is really unique, and the host, Noni, is very friendly and welcoming. The house is located right across the Lanikai beach, great water and sand. Watch the sunrise right from the lanai. The view is really the best feature of the house. It is also 5 min away from Kailua beach, outstanding, words cannot describe the beauty of the sand and blue water. The house is an older house, with a basic kitchen and one bath ( a little more challenging for the 4 of us), but we loved it, it had a certain authenticity to it. Maybe it was because the house has several artwork pieces of Noni's displayed. Very peaceful and quiet place, even though we were gone most of the time morning till evening. We would definitely rent again. Thank you Noni!
