Wonderful location for family getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the Lanikai surf house for 6 nights on our first trip to Hawaii with 3 young kids in tow. We could not have been happier with the location or the house. The house is set back from the road, which can be busy on weekends, so the kids (10, 5, and 2) could still play safely in the front yard under the gorgeous mango tree. The neighborhood was fairly quiet at night. The house had everything we needed, it was very clean, well stocked with beach equipment, towels, kitchen items, games, etc. but un-fussy - perfect for a young family. The beds were all comfortable and covered with comfy linens. Both Lanikai beach and Kailua beach park are walkable from the house and they are both fantastic beaches for young ones with calm water and beautiful snorkeling at Lanikai. This house rental made our vacation easy and relaxing. If you love to cook, I'd pick up a sharp knife at the grocery, but otherwise we had everything we needed to make all of our meals at the house. Our only lament was that we forgot to sign the guest book! Thank you for a wonderful beach stay!

Nice place close to the beach

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time to Hawaii. Glad we choose to stay on this side of the island. Loved the beaches, and Kailua. The house was just as described. Cosy and comfortable Nice set back, easy access to the beach. Spent time almost every day down at the beach, loved the fact that the Lanakai was never overly crowded. Used the water toys, beach umbrella, snorkel gear. All-in-all very good time. Be sure to do the pillbox hike at sunrise, you won't be sorry.

2 years in a row! Would have a hard time staying anywhere else when on Oahu again!

  • 5 of 5

We have 3 small girls that love to play outside. We felt this location was perfect for our whole family. A block an a half off the best beach on the island which was awesome for the kids even on a surf advisory day. Large private yard deeply set in the parcel for the kids to enjoy. We didn't even worry about them going in and out of the house on their own (6, 4 and 20 months). It was like living at home, only YOU'RE IN HAWAII (: Bar B Q could be updated but worked well. Plenty of room to stretch out even if you had a large group/family. Easy to get to town. No owners or caretakers on top of you! No offense Mike but privacy is a plus. Thank you for sharing your home! -The Frisk's, Alaska

Clean and close to the beach

  • 5 of 5

The home was very clean and had everything you would need for your stay. It was nice to have the washer and dryer there as well as all the kitchen applicances. There is a target within close driving distance that we used for groceries and several local restaurants in the closeby town of Kailua.

There is no AC, which we knew based on the description, but that really is not an issue in hawaii as long as you have fans . The temperature at night is cool and breezy and the fans pull in the breeze. Box fans were provided and we slept very well. I would agree with the below review on some curtains perhaps. There are some iced out shades on the windows but we weren't sure how much it blocks out. There was some construction going on in the day on the roof next door so some curtains would have made it a bit more comfortable to change in the room.

We visited both early beaches and they were beautiful and relaxing. We hiked the pillbox trail by the house which has amazing views of the area. Nalu health bar and cafe, Mahaloha burger, Cinnamon's for breakfast, all in Kailua were our favorite eats and reasonably priced.

Calvin and Susie (if you have dogs), is a cute local store selling dog food, treats, and accessories including local stuff to take back home for your pets!

We visited the DOle plantation and the Polynesian center which were both a great and fun experience. Must have pineapple ice cream at DOLE and eat at Pounders at the Polynesian center. Their fish was delish.

There was a surfing competition on the north shore so we drove by and saw that for a bit. Incredible what these surfers can do! Our friend that came with us went to the north west coast to snorkel with the sharks with a conservation group and really enjoyed the educational experience.

Pearl Harbor of course speaks for itself and is an important place to visit. Very historical and emotional, worth the early trip.

We loved Oahu and enjoyed our stay. Would recommend and love to return someday!

Owner's Response: Thank you. We will add some curtains to the bedroom windows. The house has many frosted glass louvers that are usually open for the breeze and give privacy when closed.
