About the property

Your bedroom has a private entrance at the bottom floor of my house and your own parking spot in the driveway. 200 sq feet bedroom unit with Queen size bed and ample bathroom. A/C, TV and wireless internet in bedroom. Recreation room/converted garage, ping pong table, eating/cooking area, and private patio with views of the Mokulua Islands (shared only with owner when I access my spare refrigerator). Laundry and sink separate. Use of salt water POOL (shared only with owner). Please note that this property is ideally suited for two adults due to the quiet, peaceful nature of the place.

What makes this villa unique

This property has one of the best views in Lanikai! Short walk to Lanikai beach, quiet, and naturally cool most of the time.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Words cannot describe how wonderful Lois' place is, especially for the value, but I'll try. First, the location is easily the best spot in Lanikai, let alone Oahu altogether. The view is stunning, and the accessibility to Lanikai beach, Kailua and surrounding attractions makes this spot ideal for your desire to explore the island. BUT, we didn't because you simply cannot find a better "perch" on the island. In fact, most people we met around town and on the beach made this destination spot for a day, and left wondering "why don't we just stay here the whole time"? Enter our 7 day stay. First, Lois is a wonderful person and great host. Reminder, this is her home and permanent residence, thus it is (I believe) equally important to be mindful and respectful as guests (this probably holds true in most aspects of life). That being said, most of the time you felt like you had much of the property to yourself (includes the pool, your room, and a separate studio-like area with lots of extras). The bed is comfortable, the bathroom is clean and roomy, and even thought the sunrise and sunset are bar-none the best thing to do, Lois does provide wireless internet and cable t.v. Access to the beach is 3 blocks away, albeit I am lazy, so I chose to use are rental car. Lois provides you use of the washer and dryer, and the rec room is equipped with microwave, refrigerator, toaster oven, hot plate, coffee maker...and even gives you fresh eggs from her chickens and filtered drinking water as needed. I loved not having to pack beach towels, snorkeling gear, coolers, and other beach items because they are all provided. Anyone would be hard pressed to find a better accommodation and location for the price, not to re-mention what a great host Lois was. We also had our own parking spot, which is RARE in Lanikai. Again, words cannot describe the views, especially as your toes are dancing in the beautiful pool. I took a video from the patio where we watched the sunrise every morning. You can find it on youtube searching under Panoramic view of Lanikai Bay. This is what you'll see if you are fortunate enough to break away for vacation, and Lois' rental is available. Rani and I thank you again for a spectacular time "doing nothing". It was the best!!!!!

Stunning View

  • 5 of 5

I enjoyed my stay at this property. The room is quiet, cool, and very clean. The kitchen area has a great view of the ocean. I didn't swim in the pool, but it is lovely. The property is located in a great area and I would definitely stay here again.

6th time on this rental property. It is our home away from home. We won't stay anywhere else.

  • 5 of 5

Wake up to the most amazing sunrises and go to sleep after gazing at the stars. What else could you ask for? How about an awesome host? Lois is the best. Period. We have enjoyed many annual vacations with and without our three teenage children. We couldn't feel more at home.

Beautiful private paradise

  • 5 of 5

We chose to stay here because we wanted something opposite of the crowded and overpriced bustle of Honolulu, and couldn't have been happier with our stay. The views are breathtaking - watching the sunrise over the ocean is such a treat. The room itself is cozy and clean, and we appreciated the extra large bathroom. We didn't make use of the kitchenette space (just the refrigerator) and opted to eat out instead, but it's got everything you'd need to make breakfast, lunch, or dinner. The pool is wonderful; we even used the hot tub on a rainy afternoon. Lois was very accommodating and kind. We'll be back!

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We selected this property for the seclusion, quiet, and that fabulous view to celebrate our 30 year anniversary. Lois was very accommodating and everything worked out as expected. The bedroom and kitchenette were clean and well maintained. The unit also included lots of beach goodies (chairs, towels, snorkeling equipment, umbrella, etc.) so we didn't have to rent anything for the beach. As mentioned earlier, the view is just stunning - a photographer's dream. Would love to go back!

We are located in Lanikai, a private residential neighborhood. Lanikai Beach is a short walk, and there is a playground and park at the bottom of the street. Lanikai loop is a two mile one-way road, which has a 'bike lane' for walking, biking, rollerblading...
