Perfect stay at the Lanikai Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a such a wonderful stay at the Lanikai cottage! It was perfect for us.

Michelle was so easy to work with from the first contact. She made some great recommendations and responded right away with any questions I had. The cottage is just like the pictures, very well maintained and clean. It also has some nice views. Green all around you with a peek of the ocean. There were beach towels, umbrellas, boogie boards and a cooler available to use. You can also rent a kayak from Michelle at a much more reasonable price then the rental shops. The location of the cottage is beyond outstanding. This is a very upscale neighborhood. One of the most beautiful beaches in the world is just a short walk away. Honestly it's pure paradise! Missing it already but look forward to a future return :-)

Spacious comfortable studio near Lanikai Beach

  • 4 of 5

The Good: well laid out and spacious studio apartment, serviceable kitchen for making light meals, comfortable king bed, being on the second floor with windows on all sides catches all the breezes, good internet, walking distance to Lanikai Beach, easy checkin and communication with property manager.

The Not So Good: property faces on Mokulua Dr, the only street out of the Lanikai neighborhood so there is considerable traffic noise in the morning and late afternoon. Add to this garbage, recycle, and lawn waste pickup and an army of lawn care services that operate in this area with their mowing and blowing and this property can be quite noisy at times. Mercifully it’s quiet at night. The bed linens and towels had seen better days and could stand updating.

Beautiful studio apt in lanikai-- but needs updates

  • 4 of 5

This apartment in Lanikai is very light, bright and clean. Its quite roomy too, I never felt cramped... I do have a few comments though on the "extras". The bathroom and beach towels were very worn down. Only two TINY- well worn beach towels, and no reed mats available for jaunts to the beach. Usually, these condos come with ample supplies of things like that so you don't have to buy your own. Could use a couple of decent can openers.. one puncture type was there but almost unusable due to damage. Two lights were completely out... could use a decent pair of bed/end table reading lamps.. one was out completely. The bed has also been well worn, a little lumpy and sagging ... great location and overall "bones" but needs some attention to details and updating.

Owner's Response: Aloha! There are 2 sets of beach towels for guests to use during there stay, 2 thicker for long stays at the beach and 2 lighter for quick jaunts to the water. My apologies I am thinking you may not have seen them on the shelf in the bathroom. We also have beach mats, 4 beach chairs, umbrella and coolers in the beach closet so Im not sure if you may have missed seeing those:( We have 2 lamps on both sides of the bed for guests to read or have extra lighting. I did find one was unplugged so I'm thinking that may be what you are referring to:) I always keep an extra bulb and batteries in the kitchen draw for guests in the event a bulb goes out:) . Mahalo for letting me know about the can opener it has been replaced. Please know that I always encourage guests after check in to let me know if they need anything at all and I’m happy to replace or accomadate anything guests may need. I can be reached easily by phone/ text or email and I'm available to assist in any way I can:)) Mahalo and we value our guests recommendations to improve your stay.

Lovely studio and location, location, location!

  • 4 of 5

The Lanikai lookout studio is a great spot from which to enjoy the area! The rental is clean, has a great mini-view of the water, and as many have mentioned, the breezes are wonderful and keep the apartment feeling airy and welcoming. The space overall is plentiful, we never felt crowded, and a parking spot in this location is invaluable. Working with Michelle was delightful, and all about the check-in, etc was seamless. The fact that you can grab a cup of coffee and literally walk around the corner to pop in the ocean for a morning swim (as we did on many days) is obviously priceless! And we got lots of use out of the great beach toys provided, too! The only drawbacks (and why we didn't give 5 stars, and would really give 4 1/2 stars) are no stove/oven (which is made clear in the description) did make it a bit challenging to cook dinners, and as my husband is a chef, we did actually want to do this, though many folks probably won't care. The other issue was since the unit is higher up (second floor above a garage) the noise from the street and especially the landscapers @ neighboring houses was prominent in the early a.m.s, but if you are an early riser, this won't affect you. The area was pretty crowded/busy, but we were no doubt there during the very high season, so again, this may not be an issue at a different time, and is certainly no reflection or comment about the rental itself. Overall, this is a great bargain for the area, a very nice, airy, clean unit, and a primo location in lanikai!

Owner's Response: Aloha! Mahalo for your kind words! We are so glad you enjoyed your stay:) Lanikai is an amazing place to visit. Yes..... Christmas holiday is our busiest time here ...guests love to come for the amazing weather and beautiful ocean. My apologies regarding the landscaping that is typically done in the afternoon as neighbors respect each others peaceful time in the am & there are rules set up not to start those projects in am. That is not a normal occurrence. Mahalo and we hope to have you back soon!

Fantastic place, close to wonderful beach.

  • 5 of 5

Excellent location, 1 block to Lanikai Beach and an easy walk to Kailua Beach. Wonderful apartment, ideal for 2 people, also with parking. Super clean, comfortable, full of windows and light. BBQ and beach equipment available. Fully equipped kitchen, linens, towels, and a/c. Quiet, residential area but close to shops in Kailua Town. Michelle was very friendly and available.
