Property description

TAT # W 03641910-01
Please note: Booking is limited to comply with all applicable zoning by-laws.
Contact us about SPECIALS! This property requires a signed rental contract to confirm reservations.

Walk through the entry gate, and find yourself in the middle of your own private personal resort. Lush tropical landscaping greets you as you walk past swaying palm trees, and the sound of water falls. Wade into the beach-entry swimming pool framed by real lava rocks, relax in the Bali-style pool cabana, or work on your tan resting in a lounge chair pool-side while enjoying a cool drink. A rare majestic tropical tree frames this unique Lanikai beach side home and property and creates a welcoming, cool and private setting even on hot summer days. There is a tree house tucked inside the roots of the tree for the younger folks (and those young at heart) and a kid-friendly pool, which will provide endless hours of entertainment. You just might have trouble pulling yourself (and the kids) away to get over to world famous Lanikai Beach with its powder-soft sand.
We are looking forward to sharing our little piece of paradise with you!

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 a half block and 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, snorkeling, 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 ridge line behind Lanikai for scenic vistas in all directions. Lanikai is also favored for its one-way loop circling through this beach side community, inviting joggers, mom's with their strollers, and people out for a walk.

The home is one of the last few Hawaiian style beach cottages offering its' guests an exceptional setting and truly Hawaiian vacation experience. It is tastefully decorated. There are two master bedroom suites and all of the bedrooms have air-conditioning and a TV. The kitchen has marble counters and modern appliances. Hardwood floors throughout are easy on your barefoot feet. The house has an open floor-plan which is ideal for island-style living and delights with a casual elegance. It even boasts a rare fireplace (for Hawaii!!) and an outdoor hot tub.
A caretaker is on-site for guest convenience. The fenced-off caretaker's cottage is located at the opposite end of this over 1/3 acre beach-side property. Guests needs are quickly tended to. Tall hedges ensure privacy for guests. A ready supply of beach equipment combined with its beach-side location, make enjoying frequent trips to the beach easy. We welcome families with children. The yard and pool are a child's paradise! However, we do not cater to guests expecting to entertain visitors (local or visiting friends and family staying at other accommodations). This property is suitable for a quiet vacation accommodation for registered guests. The home 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. Paradise awaits!!
