About The Owner

We have been in Hawaii for many years. My husband born and raised here on Oahu He moved to Kailua when he was very young . He has surfed for many years both board and body can tell you good spots for experienced and beginners .

The Owner purchased this apartment in 1998

Why The Owner chose Lanikai

This is a unique and private community. The apartment is located close to all that you might be interested in seeing on Ohau . The completion of H3 HWY has made it possible to get from Kailua to Pearl Harbor, Waikele Premium Outlets,North Shore Big waves great surf spots I might add no traffic on H3. Going from Lanikai to Sandy Beach , Makapu'u ,Sea Life Park, and Hanauma Bay are all about 30 minute drive on Kalaniana'ole HWY

What makes this apartment unique

Beaches here are beautiful we exercise and walk and jog and bike. We can relax and have quiet hours for reading and resting. We are a short 3 minute walk to the beach. Every morning you can enjoy a nice private walk on the beach with beautiful fine white sand and than come home for coffee and enjoy the tropical setting off your lanai or if you prefer you can go to a local coffee shop just off Kailua Beach. Bikes are also available in Kailua for rent to bike the trails and just getting around Kailua There are several areas for hiking. One that is quite enjoyable when you get to the top that overlooks all of Lanikai.

Perfect Paradise spot !!!

  • 5 of 5

We spend 2 weeks celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary an enjoyed every minute of it at this cozy and wonderful spot. The kitchen is well stocked. The master bedroom was so comfortable, lot of storage. The gazebo is covered and spacious, beautiful area to take a nap, relax, listen to the tropical birds singing, and enjoy reading a book when its raining. This place is absolutely perfect. Thank you Len and Jenny for being helpful and awesome hosts. - Alex,Luba - Vancouver WA

Welcome to Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We are so happy we found this rental. It is located in a great neighborhood with convenient access to the beach. The town of Kailua offers shopping, restaurants and many activities. The apartment has everything you need including beach chairs, boogie boards and a cart. We loved the lanai area and it provided a great place to relax while being outdoors. The owners were so welcoming and helpful. Look no further for your stay in paradise.

A world away...

Our rental was pristine and obviously maintained with love. The owners Len and Jen were lovely, considerate folks. Our only regrets is not having more than a week there.

Comfortable one bedroom in beautiful Lanikai

  • 5 of 5

The owners have been thoughtful about what is useful for guests and have supplied what you’ll need to have a comfortable, relaxed stay. While it’s about a 15 minute walk to the beach, a beach wagon has been supplied along with chairs, boogie boards & whatever else you might need on the beach. The kitchen is similarly well stocked & the bed is comfortable. My only comment, which is not really a complaint, is that the AC isn’t placed in the best spot to cool the bedroom, but generally, it’s not a problem. I highly recommend this rental!

PERFECT!!!! A home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

Jen and Len welcomed us like family. The private garden apartment was immaculately clean and even had special Hawaiian welcoming touches. The kitchen was supplied with everything we could have ever needed, and the large kitchen table was perfect for our business needs. The beds were very comfortable and easily slept three of us. Having an air conditioner to use was a nice bonus, since the apartment is downstairs. They offered plentiful amounts of beach gear and a wagon to access the nearby gorgeous Lanikai beach. Although the house is perfect, the large covered lanai is the highlight of this home. It extends out over a beautiful backyard, contains nice lighting, plenty of comfortable furniture, and a gas grill. Our only wish is that we could have stayed longer!
