Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: As a child growing up in Orange County, I was fortunate that my parents took us to Hawaii every summer. We visited Lanikai Beach regularly. What a hidden gem Lanikai was at the time. I made it a goal to buy a home there one day. After living in several rentals in Lanikai, I finally found an empty lot in 1995. I sold my company in 1996 (the largest food business in Orange County owned by a woman at the time) and moved to Hawaii and built my dream home a year later.

Why the Owner Chose Lanikai, Kailua, HI, USA:
During the 80's, I was saddened to learn that many of the original Lanikai residents were selling their homes for financial reasons, and their old houses were being replaced with brand new buildings. I've always thought that some of these homes were so charming that Lanikai was losing a little bit of its Hawaiian character with the razing of each home. When this property came up for sale, I knew that it would be ideal as a rental just the way it was. It was only 3 houses away from our home, so keeping an eye on the property would be no problem. I love its corner lot location, abundant trees, and the entire property reminds me of old Hawaii.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Although the house has been remodeled, much of the charming original elements remain including the sliding wood and glass patio doors and the cabinetry. It is located at the far end of Lanikai and therefore has less traffic and noise... very quiet and private. The grounds are ideal for large family gatherings. It is also just a 3 minute walk to our favorite beach cove and about 12 minutes to the world famous Lanikai Beach. The new covered outdoor lanai is a hit with all our guests. With a large microfiber modular couch, kitchenette, dining table, ceiling fans, and a bamboo wall screen, it is a great place to hang out and relax listening to the birds and the ocean.
