Loved our time at this place!
"I recently rented this place over New Years week. I had never been to Hawaii and didn't know how awesome the Lanikai beaches are. Our family stayed here including 3 adults and 3 kids ranging from 1-70 years old. This was the perfect size for our group.
Place: This is actually 3 places, the caretaker, Patrick, lives downstairs and was very accommodating. He let our children play in the grass area which was part of his space. He was very responsive when we asked to borrow additional kitchen items. There is another place also downstairs that has a completely separate entrance and we never saw or heard the people staying there.
The interior is all one level. The master looks out with a nice ocean view and is right off the living space. I wasn't sure what to expect since the pictures show what looks like a stairs but these are locked off. We are really glad it was one level given we had a baby. They left us a high chair, pack n' play, and some beach chairs/umbrellas which was really helpful.
Location: Lanikai is great for walking. The beach was about a 10 minute walk (with a stroller and 2 young children). It is also great for exercise walks and hiking pill box, which has excellent views.
The only downside was that because it was a super busy week there was massive traffic issues so bad that we couldn't get out of Lanikai on two nights. My husband talk to a cop in line to get out and estimated between 2-3 hours to get to the main road from the loop. We canceled our plans and grilled out instead. It ended up working out fine but had we had plans that we couldn't move it would have been a real bummer.
I would definitely come back here and rent again. Owners were great and the people were very nice everywhere we went. Mahalo for sharing your home with us!"
