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!!!!!

The perfect quiet, relaxing get away

  • 5 of 5

I came to stay for a vacation for one, and what an amazing time! The place is perfect for a quiet sanctuary. There is A/C but I left the windows open to listen to the ocean and let the breeze put me to sleep. The view from the Lanai is breathtaking but if you go out in the mornings as the sun is rising, well, it's spiritual. It is a short walk to the beach and just a perfect little spot! I literally had the best time of my life here! So thank you!

Relaxation in Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Location Location Location! Wow this was a fabulous comfortable pleasant place to get away to and relax with my husband (young seniors from Northern Ontario). The views are mesmerizing, the beach is perfect with snorkeling and all other Hawaii sea sports and the host, Lois, is wonderful and looks out for guests' needs. The steep driveway adds a bit of drama but is obviously doable - just breathe. Parking at the beach is limited but patience and lady luck prevailed for us and all was good. Close to stores and restaurant options but getting to Honolulu can be fraught with some construction and traffic congestion but it's sooo much easier to chill through it in Oahu. Hang Loose! I recommend it highly. Mahalo Lois!

Wonderful place!

  • 5 of 5

Lois was sweet and kind and warm to our stay. Her place is beautiful with an amazing view and a short walk to the beach. This side of the island is less busy but still has lots of stores, shops and restaurants in the downtown area only 2 miles away from her house.

Car: recommended

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...
