About the property

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)

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!

Your deposit of $100 is due at time of reservation. Deposit is refundable minus a 30% fee if your reservation is canceled more than 30 days prior to your arrival. 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.

Great beach studio, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

A charming and spacious beachy studio, with lots of natural light, very clean, lots of storage. Felt very much at home. The bed is super comfortable and though we didn't use it as a bed, the futon couch was comfy. Nice garden in the outdoor space, and besides the lanai shown in the photos, there's a bonus side yard with lines for hanging suits and towels out to dry.

Location: perfect! 2 minutes walk to Kailua Beach, 5 minutes to Lanikai Beach. Buzz's Restaurant is a great spot for dinner & cocktails, 5 minute walk. Kalapawai Market & Deli a 10 minute walk, has everything you need. We had a car but you wouldn't need one. The property is on a quiet street, and parking was always easily available right out front. The studio's private front gate provides easy access to the lanai, which felt very private.

Hosts Carly and Jeff are friendly, gracious and welcoming. I would absolutely recommend this property and can't wait to plan another trip!

Bike to Kailua beach

  • 4 of 5

Surf Hale was in great location, 5 min walk to Kailua beach on Lanikai end. Cute old style beach studio with charming lani & garden in quiet neighborhood. Full fridge & stove, stocked with coffee & creamers. Great to have access to bikes & beach chairs. Carly & Jeff very helpful and easy to communicate with.

Was great didn't spend to much time at house but who does on vacation. I already plan on coming bk

  • 4 of 5

Property was alright it's more about the location, it's 2 blocks from beach which has the best sunrise on the island, 15min walk to pillbox trail which is an even more amazing sunrise. pictures can be a little deceiving how rooms look and is set up but the patio is perfect for late night BBQ. The owners were amazing price was perfect and overall I loved it. Can't go wrong if you have a little family or a couple looking to get away. Thank you again Carly & Jeff I can't wait to come bk already

Nice space, very nice people, minimally provisioned

  • 4 of 5

Really enjoyed the hospitality of Carly and Jeff. The studio is comfortable and quiet. The location, however, isn't very near the ocean: about 1/2 a mile west of Kailua beach on a pretty quiet street. The wifi is terrible: spotty at best, even if the router is adjacent to the studio. And the place is very minimally provisioned: to wit, the first morning I'm there, having got some bread from the local store the night before, I discover no toaster. Solved this by getting one for $4 from the local Salvation Army that day. But this is a good example. The shower is very small, and the unit as a whole could use a good refreshing. That said, the area is pretty calm and quiet and this is a nice place to stay. For the money its just a little too much, but nice nonetheless. And the hosts are very pleasant.
