Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful stay at Lanikai Studios. It has everything you can imagine to make you feel right at home! Quiet and very clean with lots of supplied beach gear. The bed was awesome and we slept like babies! Our private patio entrance was great for morning coffee.

We were impressed with everything. The location is perfect, only a two minute walk to one of the most fabulous beaches in the world. Mary and Gary are so easy to work with and were very knowledgeable of things to do and places to visit on Oahu. This was a vacation of a life time! I can’t wait to go back to Hawaii and will once again stay at Lanikai Studios!

Great find for R&R....

  • 4 of 5

We fell upon this location when I was looking for a B&B in Hawaii on the internet. We prefer the individual service and the comfort of home feeling, and wanted a quiet place to enjoy our stay. We stayed in the front bottom unit and it was exactly as shown. It was clean and comfortable. Mary was very kind and helpful in providing us with information about the area and the endless possibilities during our stay. The unit was just steps away from the beach where we saw the sunrise at 6:59 am coming up between the Mokulua islands.

Other places close by include;

Kalapawai Market is a 10 min walk through Kailua park. Great place for the small essentials, alcohol, small bites, fresh brewed coffee and other.

Kailua Beach Adventures - just another 2 min down the street in a small plaza. Great place for bicycle rental, kayak rental, snorkeling etc...You have got to check them out!

Kailua "downtown" - 20-25 min walk (15 mins by bicycle). All the shops and food stores a small town could have. Should check out the farmers markets around town and Manoa Chocolates.

Kailua Beach - 5 min walk

Pill boxes were a total of approx. 40 min on a general hiking trail to the top to view 360° of the ocean and the mountains

Good Eats:

Buzz's Steakhouse (across from Kailua Beach Park) - I have got to say that I am not a big fish eater, but I was blown away on the "Opah" fish steak. I had it done 'teriyaki' style.

Kona's Kailua - A small joint but big on the pulled pork!

Roy's Wakiki - I had the Grilled C.A.B Asian Style Barbeque Burger and my husband had the “Frying Dragon” off the Pupu Menu. Highly recommended ! If I could, I would just fly there to have it again.

Top of Wakiki - a revolving restaurant 18 floors up, again with a 360° view while dining. It also has a nightclub and bar if you are into that sort of thing.

If you want actual relaxation and not be on a time crunch, do it the Hawaiian way, stay in Lanikai.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the detailed review! I'm sure future guests will appreciate all the great info. Next time you return there should be a Roy's where the Macy's was located in Kailua. We're so glad you enjoyed your stay at Lanikai Studios and hope to welcome you again. Mary & Gary Caretakers for Eva F. Allerstorfer

Great Location, Lovely Stay

  • 5 of 5

You cannot get a better location in Lanikai for the price. We stayed upstairs in the studio -- it was cozy; a little worn, but absolutely perfect for a beach retreat. The neighborhood was very quiet and we slept well in the comfy king size bed. The kitchen has all the basics. We enjoyed fresh fruit in the morning, coffee with the sunrise on the beach, and local poke and wine in the evening. Mary, the caretaker was full of great advice and responsive to all of our needs. We took advantage of the beach gear provided (chairs, boogie-boards, beach towels, etc). Highly recommend this location.

Perfect stay

  • 5 of 5

The king sized bed in the upper back studio is one of the most comfortable I've experienced. Each night, I could hear the ocean as I drifted off to sleep.

This place has a 70s beach house vibe because that's exactly what it is but it's in great condition and offers everything you need for a relaxing vacation.

Host Mary is friendly and extremely efficient and all my dealings with her before, during and after my stay were a breeze.

Lanikai is a divine destination-the antithesis of noisy and crowded Waikiki. It was a great choice and I hope to return one day.

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

Stayed in the studio at the back of the building on the first floor. Nice king size bed, and was able to use their two burner stove to cook meals each day. Comes with everything you need, even a beach towel and snorkel for the beach that's just across the road. Their location is so amazing, you walk to the beach and it's a great spot for snorkeling, swimming, lounging on the beach, etc. Mary was a great host, helpful with the questions I had and general information about the area. Thanks!

A Perfect Place

  • 5 of 5

Pleasantly greeted by Mary when we arrived, we weren't sure what to expect, but this place was great. Location can't be beat ... just a few steps to the wonderful Lanikai beach. We stayed in the upper back suite, there was a nice lanai, and an inside sitting area with loveseat and table and chairs, and a great bed. Kitchen had everything we needed for light breakfast and snacks - there were three of everything (sliverware,plates,cups). Lots of helpful literature around. Good chairs, mats, towels, boards, umbrellas, etc. for the beach. Off-street parking helps too.
