Amazing Beach House

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about the home, it is located in the most beautiful place you can imagine. The home had everything we could need or want for a vacation property (beach bikes, sea kayaks, stand up paddle board, boogie boards), the kitchen was well stocked. Bob was gracious and helped coordinate a private chef (Norman) for an unforgettable Hawaiian meal at home. As an added bonus Bob (also one of our pilots) arranged for a private helicopter tour of the island that made the trip even that more special. The entire experience added up to one great family trip, with many wonderful memories made. Without hesitation this home would be our choice for a return trip to the area. Thanks Bob!

Owner's Response: One of the nicest families I've had the pleasure of welcoming to Lanikai. They possessed the complete spirit of Aloha. My pleasure to show them our beautiful island from my helicopter and arrange a special Hawaiian gastronomic event. Norman, our local chef, prepared an incredible 5 course meal for the family which was to "die for"! See more pics of their visit on Mahalo Nui Loa Bob

We had the best family vacation here, you are in between Honolulu and North Shore. We paddle boarded and swam right from the house, you can’t go wrong. It was quiet and peaceful, loved watching the sunrise’s in the morning. Make sure you bring your sun glasses! We will definitely be back to this wonderful vacation spot!

Great Beach House

  • 5 of 5

We really loved staying at this beach house in Lanikai. You have everything you need and the views are spectacular. Robert takes excellent care of his guests and makes you feel at home. We also loved the fact that you don't need to rent bikes, boards, kayaks because it all at the house. Thanks Robert!

Memories of Paradise on Lanikai Beach

  • 5 of 5

Our family party was very fortunate to vacation here. The weather was perfect, light breezes warm not hot temperatures. I took a morning swim every day right from the beach house. The two Mokulua islands are less than a mile away. However, coral is up near the surface about half way there. We took the two man kayak(s) several times to the larger island beach. There is a paddle board at the house to tryout too.

The home is beautiful, as well as the landscaping around it. There is space for everyone to do their thing inside and out. It is very relaxing. We cooked many meals in the large kitchen (and outdoor grill), enjoying dining inside and out. We found lots of fresh local fish at the nearby grocery stores.

We tried to enjoy all the local attractions without driving far. The Pill Box hike is spectacular. Bicycles (provided) get you around the community and over to Kailua. The beach at the house was perfect in the morning. High tides late in the day shortened the beach however. We also walked to Kailua beaches. We didn’t go out on the outrigger canoes (Wa’a) but they were out every day, all day from Kailua Beach paddling past the beach house. It is the local thing to do. Joggers, bikers and walkers were out at sunrise.

The owner, Robert Barnes stopped by every day. He is a gracious host!

Owner's Response: Thank you Isaac for your kind remarks. Your family was fantastic and your 3 yr old daughter a precious jewel. I'm so pleased that you took time to explore the many adventures Lanikai has to offer. Walking the loop, climbing the pill box trail and surfing the waves near the Mokulua Islands. What a pleasure to discover the local farmers markets and sample hawaiian poke. Come back again soon --- paradise awaits your return Mahalo nui loa, Bob

Slice of heaven

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent time at Bob’s home during our honeymoon a few years back and fell in love with the place and location. We always knew we wanted to go back and were finally able to book our second trip, this time an 8 night stay with our 1.5 year old daughter, my parents and brother. The house was perfectly suited for the 6 of us. Bob had a pack n play, crib, and high chair which made it easier for us to travel with less items for the baby. He also has a double stroller at the house in case we needed it. Bob was an incredible host as he came by and brought the paper every day, made sure everything was going smoothly and even had one of his surf boards fixed while we were there as we wanted to use it.

The spacious kitchen made it convenient and enjoyable to make meals throughout the day. With tables / beautiful seating areas in the back and front of the home we were able to enjoy many meals outside on the porch in the shade and grill out. There are plenty of towels for the bathroom, the water pressure is fantastic. There is even an outdoor shower which was useful when we came back from swimming or the beach.

Our stay was nothing short of amazing and we plan to return to Bob’s ocean front home again (as soon as we can!). We absolutely love this special place and everything it has to offer. Thank you Bob!

Complete Bliss

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we stepped foot in this house, we knew it was going to be an unforgettable week. Each morning before breakfast, we would sit out on the back patio and take in the breathtaking views of the sun rising over top of the Mokulua islands. The master bedroom was exactly what we were hoping for with a spacious double shower. Each night we would sit out back and enjoy the nicely landscaped back garden with its incredible view. There are lots of different rocks off the shore line that are perfect for snorkeling. The house had several 2 person kayaks which were great to use to get over to the Mokulua islands and the house included a map for the best way to approach the islands by kayak. We were all amazed at just how clear the water was off the back of the house. There was a constant breeze that made sitting outside perfect at any point of the day. The kitchen was well equipped and there was a propane bbq that we used on several different occasions. The location worked well for our various day trips to Diamond head, Peal Harbor, the north shore and Waianae. There is a great hike on the mountains behind the hike that goes to a pillbox with a spectacular 360 panoramic view. Bob was super friendly and accommodating throughout the entire trip and we couldn’t have asked for a better vacation. Mahalo!
