Bali Hale is a private and tranquil retreat located in beautiful Lanikai, on the windward side of Oahu. Lanikai is just a 20 minutes drive from Honolulu and Waikiki and on one of the world's most incredible beaches. A five-minute drive will take you to Kailua town where you will find an assortment of restaurants and shops. Beach activities include kayaking, boogie boarding, surfing, windsurfing, kite surfing, snorkeling, and beach combing. Kayaks, and stand-up paddleboard rentals are available in Kailua town. You can walk, jog, and bike throughout Kailua and Lanikai or hike the famous pillbox trail. Lanikai beach is the perfect place to watch a magnificent sunrise over the ocean!
Bali Hale is a professionally designed and decorated home surrounded by lush tropical landscaping. The house features a gourmet kitchen, private master suite with both indoor and outdoor shower, and a large covered exterior lanai. Bali Hale has a queen bed in the master suite and two twin beds in the second bedroom. The great room has gorgeous hardwood floors and vaulted ceilings. Step outside to your private lanai and relax. Amenities include wireless internet, fax machine, printer, hair dryer, iron, coffee maker, toaster, dishwasher, washing machine and dryer.
Bali Hale not only met our expectations it exceeded them from every aspect. It was impeccably clean and well maintained. The photos really do not do justice to that pure charm of the home. It is truly one of a kind.
The house contained everything that one could ask for in a rental home and the location is wonderful. You are far enough away from Waikiki Beach to avoid the crowds but it is only about a 25 minute drive to get there to enjoy the amenities offered downtown.
Gerri, the care taker, was wonderful. Our flight landed at 4:25 PM and when we called her she said take your time getting to the house we will wait for you which took pressure off of as we had not been to that part of the Island on previous trips. Once we arrived at the house she spent a great deal of time making sure that we were familiar with the house as well as sharing some of her favorite things to do in the area including where to eat and buy groceries. Thanks Gerri and Bill you got us of to a great start!
You cannot help but relax a while at Bali Hale. The setting is peaceful and the back yard is large and private. One of the great features of the house is the outdoor shower. Everything that you will need for your vacation is within a short driving distance, Gerri will give you the low down.
We thoroughly enjoyed morning coffee and evening cocktails on the porch. We also highly recommend the Lanikai General Store for lunch, breakfast and some of your supplies. The food is outstanding and the people that work there are very pleasant. It is about a 10 minute drive and it is 2 minutes from one of the nicest beaches on Oahu.
Needless to say we will be back in the not too distant future!
Beautiful Lanikai home ~ or should I stay STUNNING home. The home was spotless and grounds impeccable. Kitchen well appointed etc.
However if you are used to air conditioning, this is NOT the home for you. We'd read several reviews and spoke to the owners about the A/C. The reviews never mentioned being uncomfortable and the owners told us that the Balinese home was made for air flow so A/C wasn't necessary. *** they also told us that if we were looking for a home with a/c this wasn't it.
We should have listened but we based our decision to move forward with the booking based on past reviews which mentioned nothing of being uncomfortable in the months we were planning to travel, we were also told that each room had fans so we figured it would help with the air flow ... nope :( no luck.
The house stayed a steady 80ish at night (we weren't there much in the day) ~ being from the south and used to a/c it was just too hot. We ended up buying a fan for the master bedroom and taking cold showers to try to stay semi cool . Our kids who slept in the guest room, ended up in the living room because there is zero air flow in the guest bedroom. The family used the outside shower because it was much cooler than the inside bathrooms with no ventilation/air flow.
All that being said, I am originally from Hawaii and have stayed in Lanikai multiple times in homes without a/c in the winter. Never had an issue with being hot so I would imagine that this home would be the same way and I'd rent it again if we were staying in the winter.
Again, the home is spectacular so don't let the a/c issue sway you if you don't mind being warm or are coming in any other time than the summer. You won't be disappointed in the location and beauty of this Hawaiian home.
Beautiful home! Accurate photos but MORE impressive in person. I lived in Lanikai for 10 years and this was a return visit after a 13 year absence. The home exceeded my expectations and Willow was so kind and helpful. When I lived in Lanikai I did not have air conditioning, as many homes don't, but I lived up higher on a hill with perhaps more wind. The only short coming was we were a sticky and hot at times. The home is equipped with fans as well as the trade winds but many homes are now adding some type of ac and that's the only thing I would change. I would stay again even if ac wasn't added but buy extra fans as I did. Both the owner and property manager were fabulous. Our stay was amazing! Every home needs an outdoor shower like the one at Bali Hale!!!
Fabulous property! Nice neighborhood with good access to the beach. Loved the lanai and the outdoor shower. The owner and the property manager were both very hospitable and easy to work with.
This immaculate tropical home met everything I was searching for our family vacation. We really wanted something away from the big city and hotels that was walking distance to the most beautiful beach we'd ever seen, Lanikai. This home is beautifully appointed and unique. I can't even describe how amazing the outdoor shower is. Just looking up at the palm trees swaying and feeling the warm breeze while showering... unbelievable!! I will warn families traveling with younger children. I had no idea this house is actually separated into three different detached "tiki huts" (the best way I can explain it). We traveled with our teenagers which wasn't an issue but, I realized that if we had traveled when they were younger, being separated with them in a different house/hut than us would have been worrisome. The house has amazing woven vaulted ceilings with open beams but it is very dark and if you like to read, pack a book light. As far as beach access goes, unless you are launching a kayak, you need to walk about 10-15 min from the house. This didn't bother us because the residential area is beautiful to walk through. Our only reason for not giving this home a 5 star review are things out of the owner's control. There is construction going on all over the neighborhood and it does get noisy. This is a very open home. If you don't mind living with critters this won't be an issue. Although I have never been bit, my family is apparently tasty. Pack repellant. Did I mention the amazing outdoor shower?!!! We have beautiful memories of this vacation. Thank you for sharing this gem with us.
We loved this Bali style home, the Lanikai/Kailua area is gorgeous and the beaches were lovely. The neighborhood was lovely to stay in and we felt very at home. Would definitely come back. We had just about everything that we needed for a very comfortable stay. Owner and property manager very helpful and provided advance trip contact and resource information for the area which was very useful. Nearby restaurants we went to included Buzz's Steakhouse, Lanikai Juice and a mexican bowl place that was excellent. The Whole Foods and Foodland markets were great, with excellent Poke to go. We hiked up the Pillbox trail to watch the sunrise and watched many beautiful sunrises over the Mokes at the beach access two blocks away.
