Overview

About the property

Studio, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2

Wake up to a gorgeous ocean view. Just a few minutes walk to Lanikai beach. The unit is an upstairs studio. Completely private with it's own entrance. Large airy bathroom, two sinks and jucuzzi tub. A great place to relax and enjoy a stunning ocean view upon awaking each morning. Barbecue, bikes and beach toys available. Ideal for a couple. This is within walking distance to Buzz's and downtown Kailua. Not only are you steps away from beautiful Lanikai beach but it is also within a short walk to Kailua beach, great for kayaking and windsurfing. It's a two and a quarter walk around the Lanikai Loop, great for jogging or late night walk, a very safe neighborhood. This is one of the most beautiful and desirable places to stay on the Island.

About John and Carol

We met on the beach in Santa Monica, California a little while ago. Living in warm tropics was a dream when we were young. We came Oahu to work for a few months, Carlo would waitress and John would drive a Pedicab in Honolulu. Five years later we moved back to the mainland. We soon realized that Hawaii was where we wanted to live life, and were able to make it happen. It doesn't take long for Hawaii. to get under your skin. You never forget it, you may leave, but , it's always in your heart and mind. Especially when it's 30 degrees outside.

Why John and Carol chose Lanikai

We had friends that rented a house here in Lanikai. After visiting, it became our dream to live here, 'another one of those dreams'. As time went on we were able to make it happen. We've been over 35 years here now and loved every day of it. Have no plans to leave it in this lifetime.

Amazing home with amazing hosts

  • 5 of 5

This was the best spot that we could have wanted by a long shot! Amazing hosts, amazing home. There were delicious cookies left for us one day and they have the most friendly kitty that came to sit on the lanai with us! Six out of five stars!

Great location, hosts and views

  • 3 of 5

Carol's and John's studio is in a great location. It is about a 5 minutes' walk to Lanikai beach. Parking in the driveway is a real advantage - during the holidays it is quite difficult to find a spot close to the beach. The studio has its own private entrance and a large terrace. The sea view is great. The road next to the house is busy (even at night) and the windows or terrace doors do not close properly hence do not keep any of the noise out. It was sometimes difficult for us to sleep. The place overall was quite clean, light and airy. However our main issue were the cockroaches around the house after dark - in the driveway and on the path to the studio. We have only seen them outside (not in the studio!). It seems it hasn't happened before, so maybe it was just our bad luck to encounter them :) Carol and John are wonderful hosts. Very nice and friendly people! They were very understanding about our concern and accommodated us as they could.

While the view and location are excellent, the property needs TLC.

  • 3 of 5

The space is comfortable enough, but it needs TLC- windows that won't close, toilet issues, holes in screens on sliders and bathroom window. Most inconvenient is having to wash dishes in the bathroom sink.

Kitchenette supplies minimal.

Lastly, if you want quiet, this is not the place. Traffic noise is a constant, exacerbated by multiple construction sites surrounding the property.

John and Carol are very nice, and again, the view and location excellent.

Great little Lanikai gem

  • 5 of 5

We love staying at John and Carol, this is our second time! The apartment is very clean, with a big terrace and a nice view on the ocean. The location is ideal, close to beaches and walks (Pillbox), and we received lots of care & love from our hosts, thank you, we'll come back fro sure! Helen & Jonathan

These two little islands of the shore of lanikai 'the Mokaluas' are still the most stunning and beautiful sight to see in all the world, sunrise to sunset, still, after 30 years.

We live in a quiet area of Kailua known as Lanikai. The neighborhood is residential and gets quiet as it gets later in the evening. This is usually never a problem, just something to keep in mind. Cars: guests please park in our driveway on the left side. No street parking allowed.
