Beach living does not get more picturesque than at Paddler’s Dream. Our family just spent the last week of our three week trip here and the only problem was everyone just wanted to stay at the house and enjoy the beach, yard and cottage. It offered everything you could want. Stay at the house for the location (and parking) alone but the cottage itself is lovely. Much larger than in the pictures! Everything you need for the perfect beach vacation…cool and breezy, comfortable beds, full kitchen, very clean, own washer and dryer, awesome sofa (big enough for everyone to enjoy great movie time in the evenings) and don’t even get me started on the outdoor shower. Staring up at the stars while taking the perfect temperature shower at the end of the day was heaven on earth. The house comes with 5 star hotel robes making shower taking an event to look forward to. However nothing compares to this home’s location on the famed Lanikai beach. It is everything Hawaii should be. You cannot get closer to the Mokuluas except by kayak or paddle board. It is memories that we will never forget… especially since this is where we will be staying every time we come back to Oahu.

All of this and the greatest host ever! The main house is occupied by the estate owners. They were there or a text away if you ever needed them or anything. They had coffee, fruit and goodies in the cottage awaiting your arrival and always made you feel so welcomed. We had free rein of the beachside yard even letting my youngest hang his ENO from the trees. We did not see them much but they always made us feel more like family visiting than vacationers. Thank you for giving us the ultimate “LOCAL" experience.

Amazingly beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

One of a kind location with one of kind hosts. Truly a treasure! It has always been a dream of mine to stay at a beach front property. So thankful to Vlasta and Gordon for giving us the opportunity. It truly was a dream come true. It's such an amazing location it's hard to leave and go explore when paradise is only steps away.

Heavenly location for a wonderful vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at the cottage for a week when visiting our two kids at University of Hawaii. The cottage was larger than expected and had everything we needed. We started every morning watching the sunrise on the beach followed by a swim in the warm clear green water and ended every evening with a refreshing outdoor shower! Gordon and Vlasta were very friendly and welcoming and even provided some snacks which was very nice! The cottage is located in the most perfect spot on the most beautiful beach I have ever seen. We fantasized ever day about living there forever and I can honestly say I miss it! I am already dreaming of another visit soon! Thanks for sharing your beautiful property Gordon and Vlasta!

Best location in Lanikai Beach!

  • 5 of 5

It was amazing experience. Everything was more than I expected. I think this cottage is located in the best positoin of Lanikai beach. The cottage was much larger than I imagined, and provided all of the things I needed/wanted. Various cookware, spices, shopping bags, beach goods/toys, laundry soup and even 2 bikes! We enjoy cycling in Kailua town without rental.

We defanately want to come back this fantastic place in near future!

We highly appreciate Gordon & Vlasta to make our vacaton wondeful!

Simply stunning!

  • 5 of 5

Can I first say super awesome hosts! They really make us felt like home! Off to the stellar location and let me say that I have never slept as well in my entire life as I did there for the week that we had our staycation it was glorious!

We arrived to a large wooden gate entry they opened to a beautiful well maintained landscaped property that say literally on the beach! Talk about million dollar view to die for! Or say the best beach photo you even seen from a calendar this is it!

We enjoyed a week waking up and falling asleep to the ocean waves. Paddling our hearts out and the family just enjoyed that disconnect from the social media world and just had good ole fun. It couldn't of happened if it wasn't for our great hosts that made our stay so relaxing

Not to forget the most awesome HOT outdoor shower, felt amazing. Full kitchen, bedroom living room bathroom and outdoor grill and seating area.

Oh and I swear the last thing the best seat on the whole beach their bench overlooking the pacific and most perfect view of them mokes.

Thank you both so much for the best vacation we be happy to return in the near future!

Steps away from the Best Beach on Oahu

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here end of July, 2 adults, 2 kids. The highlight of this cottage is the beach; our jaws dropped when we saw the beach, it's perfect! We were warmly welcomed by the hosts as soon as we arrived and they were very helpful throughout the stay. This being our 3rd time in Oahu, we were content to stay in and enjoy the beach all afternoon, when there is more shade on the lawn. The kids enjoyed the beach and especially the swinging rope that were tied from the coconut tree. We had breakfast on the lawn and dinner on the bench.

Kailua town is 5 minutes away and it has everything we need, Target, restaurants, juice place, Foodland, Whole Foods, shaved ice. It's a nice drive to Honolulu over the Pali Hwy where you can take a peek at the overcrowded Waikiki beach with the tons of people, then come back to your spacious cottage, private parking and the most beautiful beach on the island.
