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.

Convenient location, very clean, owner very friendly and efficient.

  • 4 of 5

Carly was very personable and helpful when we called to check in. Property was in good condition and adequately supplied. We did not require use of beach equipment but noticed it was available. Family living on the property caused no issues whatsoever. Would stay there again.

Clean cottage bungalow close to beach, but expensive for lacking beach gear.

  • 3 of 5

Cute cottage-like bungalow within walking distance to the beach. Not worth the money if you're expecting a place to stay with recreational gear to use.



-Nicely decorated

-Nice owners

-Walk to beach (+ a .5 mi walk to Lanikai beach or a short drive)

-Air conditioner unit

-Towels, beach bags, and kitchen items for use

-Awesome shower head (sounds weird, but nice after a long day)


-Horrible beach gear to use, if any (there was a duct taped boogie board and 1 pair of old flippers)

-No bikes to use as specified in description

-Construction needs updating (things falling apart)

-No electricity ran to the kitchen

-Still need to drive to the main part of town to get to restaurants

-Only 1 restaurant within walking distance (steakhouse that is quite expensive)


-Bed is VERY soft

-Kitchen has utensils to use and a few condiments but it is not stocked

Super location

  • 5 of 5

Two blocks from Kailua Beach, so we walked to the beach every day and swam. Also, Buzz's Steakhouse has been a favorite of ours for years - it was an easy walk, too. Really quiet residential neighborhood. Our hosts, Carly and Jeff, were very accessible, yet respective of our privacy. The "cottage" is homey and rustic, which matches our style.

Nice little place in great location

  • 5 of 5

The rental location is located at walk able distance to Kailua and Lanikai beaches. It is perfect for a single family. Owners were very welcoming and provided necessary information and guidance as requested. The place was neat and clean when we arrived, kitchen was stocked with all necessary appliances. Beach towels, beach chairs etc were also available for use.

The owners also run beach rentals shop (Windward WaterSports) located in Kailua town. We got great discount over there. Even if you are not staying in this rental, check out the shop, it has all necessary water sports gear and they teach kite surfing as well.

Overall, we had a great time staying in this rental and would highly recommend it to any family with 3-4 family members.

Lanikai Surf Hale

  • 4 of 5

Met mine and my wife's needs, such as close to Kailua Beach Park easy 3 min walk, quiet. The studio needed a few repairs to doors which were pointed out to the owners. The owners Carla and Jeff were very nice. We would consider staying again.
