About Lucille Moore

Lucille and Tom Moore are long term Lanikai residents. The family has lived here for over half a century. They founded Hawaii's first hi-tech company which built air traffic control systems in 33 countries.

Lucille received many awards including one presented to her in the White House by President Ronald Reagan. She was the SBAs Small Business Person of the Year for Hawaii and served as a Regent for a local college.

Tom was CEO in Singapore for the Asian operations of NorTel, a Canadian multi-national telecom company. He is a senior member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) and has an appointment from the Secretary of Commerce to the Hawaii/Pacific Export Council.

Lucille Moore purchased this cottage in 1965

Why Lucille Moore chose Lanikai

Geography and culture give Lanikai a special ambience. A volcanic ridge and low hills embrace Lanikai and isolate it from the rest of Oahu. It is quiet because there are no through roads. Lanikai is a multi-racial place which values its precious ocean and native Hawaiian heritage.

The Moore's welcome international visitors.

What makes this cottage unique

Unlike Waikiki and many beachfront locations our place is quiet, secure and serene. The standalone cottage is part of an executive estate next to conservation land on a hillside above Lanikai beach.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented this cottage for a month Our family lives in town nearby and it was perfect for us to visit them but also to have our own space Lucille and Tom were very helpful and friendly and especially thoughtful of our 5 yr old grandson who would visit us at the cottage from time to time We loved the privacy and spectacular view plus easy walks to the beach Lanikai is very quiet at their end of the neighborhood Woke up to the sound of the surf and melodic chirps of the tropical birds! Lucille had everything we needed from beach towels to local books of the island Very comfortable king bed Never slept so well

Owner's Response: Tom & I have been extremely fortunate with the fantastic renters we have had visit for the past 9 years, and Kathleen & Joey are at the top of our list. Many of our guests are attracted by Lanikai's ambience and beauty. Neighbors are friendly and Lanikai/Kailua beaches are always ranked at the top of best beaches in the U.S. Walking, hiking, running, and water sports are popular with neighbors and visitors. Kathleen did not mention the assistance she & her husband offered during their stay as I was recovering from a painful fall. Their kindness and consideration will not be forgotten. Lucille Moore

Beautiful spot, gracious hosts

  • 5 of 5

Lucille and Tom are the perfect hosts. We stayed for one week in the two-bedroom apartment attached to the main house. The accommodations were both comfortable, well-equipped, and attractively furnished. When not at the beach we spent many hours on the deck with the great view of the islands and water. Lucille is definitely hostess with the mostest! Unreservedly recommended.

a wonderful spot

  • 5 of 5

My husband and our 9 year old daughter stayed in the cottage for 8 days this fall and had a wonderful time. The cottage is comfortable and quiet and had everything we needed. It was a great home base to see the island--lots of great things to do and see nearby in Lanikai and Kailua and an easy drive to Honolulu and other locations. And, of course, the amazing beach. We so appreciated Lucille and Tom's recommendations and thoughtfulness.

Paradise Found!

  • 5 of 5

Lucille and Tom are the perfect hosts. The view from their Lanai is spectacular, and the "boat house" is roomy and also has an amazing view from the upstairs bedroom. We missed absolutely nothing during our stay and we were as comfortable as can be. Highly recommended.

Perfect getaway.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Tom and Lucille's home.

but more importantly our 3 year old son Charlie had a blast as Tom and Lucille thought of everything.

They are great hosts. and grandma had a fully stocked (utensils, pots and pans) kitchen to cook in.

Cozy, out-of-the-way slice of heaven in Lanikai

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently stayed at the cottage and loved it! Tucked into the mountains, and surrounded in a residential neighborhood, you felt a sense of Ohana with Lucille and Tom who were gracious hosts. Our stay was amazing and captured spectacular sunrises. Exotic birdsong filled the mornings and reminded us that we were on an island paradise. A binder filled with details of the nearby town of Kailua gave us options to choose from for selecting places to eat, grocery stores and places of interest to check out. We really enjoyed our stay and is a perfect place if you are active - any given time whether day or night, the streets had people on them walking, riding, heading down to the beach, etc. It was so refreshing to see and be part of than the cold winters in the states! The cottage had everything we needed and was a lovely stay! Would recommend for a quiet getaway!!

Lanikai is a tropical residential area with one of the finest beaches in the world. We are located on a hillside above the beach. Low mountains comprise Kaiwa Ridge and isolate Lanikai from the rest of the Island--there are no through roads. President Obama hikes the trail above our home on his Christmas holidays.
