About the Property

House, 3 bedrooms, 3 baths (Sleeps 5 to 6)

TAT # 124-185-8048-01
Please note: Booking is limited to comply with applicable by-laws. 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. A lush tropical yard greets you as you walk past swaying palm trees to the front door of this unique Lanikai beach side home. The professionally landscaped property 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). You just might have trouble pulling yourself (and the kids) away to get over to world famous Lanikai Beach with its powder-soft sand. But when you do, we'll make it easy for you with a ready supply of beach towels, beach equipment and a wide assortment of sand toys for the kids. This combined with this property's beach-side location, makes enjoying frequent trips to the beach a highlight. When you do come back to 'your home away from home', take a dip in the pool, or relax in your own private hot tub.
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 quick two-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!!).

We welcome families with children. The yard is 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!!
