About Mackenzie Doka
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.
Mackenzie Doka purchased this House in 2008
Why Mackenzie Doka chose Lanikai
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.
What makes this House unique
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.

All they say it is.
For our family of 11, including a 2, 4, and 6 year old, this home was perfect. It has the true Hawaiian feeling and decor we were looking for. With the large lanai, patio and outdoor dining area, we had all the room we needed. Lori went above and beyond to make sure we had all we needed and more. The Lanikai beach access was literally two minutes away. Kailua beach 1.5 miles. There is no air conditioning other than one in a middle smaller bedroom, but the house was filled with overhead and table top fans which kept air circulating. Canoes, surfboards, beach chairs, toys, towels, snorkels, etc. galore.
Best place to stay if you love the beaches at Lanikai!
Recently spent 5 nights and 6 days in this vacation home early in December to celebrate two 30th birthdays with some friends. The home itself is quite large, with two smaller studios attached to the main house. The outside lounge space is perfect for groups to hang out at after a long day out adventuring around Oahu. However, because it's an open space, there are a bunch of tiny mosquitoes, so be sure to bring bug spray or a citronella candle if you plan on spending a lot of time in that area. Lots of different areas in the house to host a large family or group of friends. However, this is in a quiet neighborhood, so night gatherings are best held inside the main portion of the house. The best part about the home is the location! You are about a 10 minute walk from one of the best beaches on the island! My friends and I took this trek everyday and enjoyed the beauty of Lanikai for hours. Warning! My friend and I both got stung by bees on the beach, so be careful where you step! Seems like the bees were all over the beach in the sand, so beware. Overall a great stay!
Great location for a family vacation!
My family and I stayed at Lanikai Palms to celebrate my parents' 40th wedding anniversary and on top of that it was my parents' first time ever visiting Hawaii. The house is in a quiet neighborhood right near Lanikai Beach and was roomy enough for my large family (9 adults and 3 small children). We had such an amazing time there and made some wonderful memories. Lori is such a wonderful host and was super helpful with recommendations for the area.
The only con was that the weather was so hot while we were there and only one room had AC. Other than that we loved staying here and would love to stay again in the future! Thank you Lori for your hospitality!
Great location and a beautiful beach
My husband and I made a last minute trip to Oahu and got lucky that Lanikai Palms was available. We really enjoy being close to Lanikai and Kailua. The house is stocked with everything you need from the new BBQ grill to beach chairs. We hit some rainy weather but still had a great time exploring the area and coming back to a comfy place. Lori has lots of good information about Lanikai and the surrounding area.
Perfect spot for a Family holiday vacation
My family and I (3 kids) stayed in the single story private house steps away from the beach for Thanksgiving! It slept us all comfortably, an ample amount of beach toys, kayaks and space outside to enjoy the weather. Very nice patio or lanai in hawaiian is comfortable and we grilled and had quality time as a family. Lori was helpful with any further accommodations we needed. I will definitely stay here in the future. It was amazing for the kids, my husband and I had quality time, and the beauty of Lanikai doesn't get any better!
What A Great Getaway!
We had a family get away in october, there were 7 adults and 3 kids and the home was perfect! there was a lot of space and the home was supplied with everything you would need! The outdoor bbq gathering area was great, we really enjoyed all being together in this home, it was hard to leave! The location was perfect in Lanikai. The beach there is breath taking and the small town just a few minutes away (kailua) is a really cool town with lots of shops and restaurants. We got out to sight see everyday, but found lanikai to be our favorite spot! This property is highly recommended for families of all ages, it really is a great place to vacation together with a lot of space.
Within walking distance to Lanikai beach and hiking trail. Lanikai access road provides safe and private walking / jogging lane. Kailua gym provides many activities including competitive badminton.
