Overview

About the property

5 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, Sleeps 14

Welcome to Walker's Lanikai Beach House. John Walker, was a Scotsman who made his way to Hawaii as a young man in the 1870's to become a contractor of choice to Queen Liliuokalani, and erect such notable buildings as the Bishop Museum and Honolulu Hale (City Hall).

Mr. Walker's inviting presence is felt in the structure of this, his favorite hideaway on Lanikai Beach. Built in 1934, this enchanting environment transports you back to an era of graceful living, where the worries of the world are lost in the luxury of sea, sand and restful surroundings. Following recent renovations, the house contains just the right combination of added comforts in its updated kitchen, guest quarters and “boat house”, with elements of charm carefully preserved from a richly felt past.

One of the first homes to take advantage of Lanikai’s heavenly reef-protected waters and natural stretch of white sand beach, John Walker’s Beach House set the standard by which the surrounding community grew…a standard which has been nurtured by his family through the years for you to enjoy. Although only with us in spirit, John Walker’s love of Lanikai is preserved by one of his most revered places in the world.

The main house features 3 bedrooms, kitchen and large "great room" with spacious guest rooms. Steps away is the white soft sands of Lanikai Beach with access to the water provided from the front lawn. With a separate entry, the 'guest cottage' located off the entry courtyard features a queen-bedded room and a small parlor with kitchenette (sleeps up to 4). Another private entry "boathouse" sits above the garage - complete with its own living room, kitchen, bathroom and lanai. The "boathouse" also has a loft area with double bed that may be suitable for young children (sleeps 2-4). This is the classic Lanikai Beach House - for those looking for a casual, relaxing getaway on the shores of one of the worlds' best beaches!

Note: FEB 23 - 28, 2019 the "boathouse" will be occupied and unavailable to rental guests (separate unit).

This property is a professionally-managed by Private Homes Hawaii, LLC and is licensed as a short term vacation rental. Non-Conforming Use Permit Number 90/TVU-0042 and is compliant with Hawaii State Legislation (HB2078) for vacation rental accommodations, Lic#TA-043-470-0288-01.

Good morning Rick:

we had a great time at the Walker house. It was everything you said it would be and more.



The weather was beautiful and we were in the water every day almost all day.



We are looking forward to our next visit.

Reviewer Comments:

Amazingly beautiful view! Even on a rainy, windy day we felt we were at the beach and enjoyed watching kite boarders "fly" by. This was our second visit with our children and grandchildren and the 11 of us fit easily around the table and in the house/boathouse/cottage. The kitchen is fully stocked. Upgraded historic house. Steven answered any questions quickly and baked bread pudding for our arrival. Traveling to Hawaii is easier because so much is provided - beach toys, chairs, boogie boards, towels, umbrellas, games, shampoo etc. Outdoor warm showers with lower and upper heads were great for the children and adults. Grassy yard wonderful for children's soccer games. Lounge chairs by water great for sunrise and relaxing. Easy walk to the beach where our grandson was baptized by a local pastor who also baptized another grandson on our first visit. The whole place is just fantastic and we hope to return to make even more memories for us and the children!

Deciding on a house for the family vacations is always a challenge The Walker filled our needs perfectly. Plenty of room for our family of 9 and the location is perfect. The house is a beautiful old craftsman with lots of character. It is meticulously maintained with little touches, like Astro turf where you want it most, and fully stocked. Good choice!

This house is a 12 out of 10. Perfect location and a perfect historic house. Everything about our stay was perfect. Walking up to that view every morning, with a coffee...wow!!!! The perfect beach just steps away. The house is fully stocked with all the beach toys and towels. We were 4 adults and 2 kids and the main house was perfect for us. The cottage would be a great place for two adults and child or even a nanny with the rest of the family in the main house. Property manager was available for whatever we needed, and that bread pudding he left for us...OMG!!!! We will definitely be back.

Reviewer Comments:

We had the pleasure of staying at the Walker house for 7 days in January, 9 members of an extended family. Pre-arrival, all our questions were answered and plenty of information was passed along to us to get us ready. Steven and Mitchell were very accommodating, working with us arriving a little early. The house was immaculate on arrival, we were very pleased with the furniture, all the ambiance, the linens and all the little extras. There was plenty of room with the great yard, main house and boat house for everyone to spread out. A small problem he had with a shower was taken care of quickly and with no inconvenience to us. Nothing beats the view from this wonderful house, it is a destination unto itself. We will have memories for a lifetime from staying at this wonderful property.

Reviewer Comments:

A lovely home and incredible location. One member of our family remarked "I've never been in a house with an infinity living room!" Having three separate living quarters was perfect. We could accommodate my son and his wife and 2-year-old in the unit behind the garage, my pregnant daughter and her husband in the unit above the garage, and the 60-something partiers in the main house! Private Homes Hawaii was great to work with. We would definitely rent this home again.

This home couldn't have been more perfect! Oahu was a destination wedding for my son. I had some of my family and friends stay at this house. It accommodated us all easily. I can say that we didn't want to leave.
