About the property

Welcome to Lanikai Surf Hale! Just 200m from beautiful Kailua beach!

We are located in the quiet neighborhood of Lanikai, on the windward side of Oahu. Lanikai is just 20 minutes drive from Honolulu and Waikiki and just steps from Kailua beach where you will find 3 miles of the world's most amazing beach. A five minute drive will take you to Kailua town where you will find an assortment of restaurants and shops. The beaches offer kayaking, boogie boarding, surfing, windsurfing, kite surfing, snorkeling, and beachcombing. We provide boogie boards, 2 sets of fins, masks and snorkels. Kayak rentals are a 10 minute walk away at Windward WaterSports. The beach is also a great place to watch the sunrise over the ocean and set behind the spectacular Koolau mountains .

If you are interested in fitness, we have 2 beach cruisers and Kailua has many different bike paths. You can walk, jog, or bike all around Kailua! Come and experience the peace and tranquility of our side of the island.

You will stay in a private cottage with it's own front and back entrance. The cottage has a queen bed and a comfy fold out futon. Don't want to eat out every night? Surf Hale has a full kitchen stocked with everything you need to make a home-cooked island meal along with several island cook books to choose your favorite local dish! The bedroom/living area has hardwood floors and plenty of storage for your belongings. Step out to your private lanai and relax or BBQ. The cottage also has wireless internet, fax machine, printer(upon request), hair dryer, iron, coffee maker and a bag of Hawaiian coffee, toaster and a washer dryer is available to use for $3 a load (includes soap & softener). Also an ice chest, beach chairs, beach mats, beach bag and two bicycles. Any other watersports gear can be rented at windwardwatersports. They have all the toys you need!

If it is less than 30 days out 100% of your deposit will be lost. It is always best to be sure about your plans before you reserve your dates.

The Highlight of Our Trip

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved the Lanikai Surf Hale and are already planning to stay there for future trips. The location is perfect. You are a short walk from one of the best beaches in Hawaii and any restaurants or shops you want to visit (there are tons of great ones!) in town you can easily bike to with the beach cruisers included in your rental. As bike lovers, we appreciated that they were in great shape and ride ready.

We were traveling with our 9-month-old baby and lugged along a pack-and-play only to find that Carly and Jeff keep one in the closet for guests. Such a nice bonus we will take advantage of next time. We would highly recommend their rental for any stay in Kailua.

The entire place is very clean and well appointed. We loved the warm community vibe - lots of neighbors stopping to say hello on the sidewalk outside, friendly faces everywhere we visited.

Property OK

  • 3 of 5

Studio was cute but, very tiny bathroom. Needs a lot more shelves and hooks. The Futon is stinky, hard and lumpy. Jeff and Carly are very nice. The use of their bikes was a great help because, you are a ways from town. The buses are a great way to get around, if you don't have a car. The tiny patio is totally shaded by Palm trees, so you can't sit out and get any sun. Its in a housing track with neighbors, cars and kids, a little bit noisy. Beach nice and not far.

Cute, clean, cozy and perfect for the two of us!

  • 5 of 5

We could not have picked a better place to stay on our trip to Kailua. The proximity to the beach and downtown was great! The hosts were very friendly and willing to answer all of our questions about what to do, where to eat, and how to get places. We kayaked, snorkeled, hiked, paddle boarded and surfed all within Kailua! When we needed down time, the space was perfect for resting and relaxing. We hope to be back next year!

Everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

Such a cute space and what a location. I sometimes get nervous staying in a unit connected to someone’s home. We never heard the family and felt very separated. Carly was incredibly accommodating and sweet. The only tiny critique I can give is the Wi-Fi info given me rarely worked throughout the unit. That’s only a concern for me as I work from wherever I am. But I mean, it’s Hawaii. Who needs Wi-Fi?!

Parking is ample, it’s easy to find. We did the Pillboxes and it took maybe 10-15 minutes to walk to the trailhead. So close to the beach. So quiet. All you could ask for.
