Lanikai House Rental Description

Tax ID# TA-139-440-7424-01.      

Honu Hale Lanikai is a simple and comfortable two-bedroom one-bath ocean front duplex with the most superb location in Lanikai, named for the fabulous sunrises that often grace this special place.

Location Location Location! Honu Hale Lanikai's ocean front location exactly in front of the twin Mokulua Islands provides endless hours of outstanding views from the ocean front yard, the living room, dining room, side deck, and even from the ocean front Queen bedroom. Our railed stairway to the ocean gives you easy access for swimming, snorkeling, and kayaking. Your days are filled with the sounds of waves, trade winds blowing through the coconut trees and picturesque sailboats, kayakers and outrigger canoes going by. Lanikai provides a fun and healthy lifestyle in a friendly beach community. It's perfect for adults and couples wanting a relaxed Hawaiian style home environment away from the busy and crowded resort areas.

Honu Hale Lanikai is also next to the Paul Mitchell Estate, at times a high-end enclave for various celebrities. You never know who you might see out on a Stand Up Paddleboard.

Honu Hale Lanikai owners John and Roz are long-time conservationists. They helped found a Hawaii-based turtle conservation organization nearly 30 years ago. And they have a native Hawaiian forest project on the Big Island.

Honu Hale Lanikai can accommodate four guests: 2 in the lanai bedroom (King bed), and 2 in the ocean front bedroom (Queen Bed). There is also a queen sized futon in the living room. In addition to the shower in the bathroom, there is an outdoor hot water shower. The King bedroom has a window air conditioning unit.
The two sides of the duplex are private and well-separated. The owners, Roz & John, maintain a low profile, but are always available if needed.

SOME ADDITIONAL PAST REVIEWS

Amazing!
The most well stocked, well thought out home. Could not have asked for anything more unless John can control the weather! Truly an amazing property, no disappointment. It took us a day or two to adjust to the long driveway in our large car, but we soon mastered the navigation. Great location, amazing swimming and watch the sunrise each and every morning. We will never forget our vacation and would return gladly.

Special place!!!!
Love this place,very homey and comfortable, many different little hangout areas. I love that it is kept as a casual beach house, but has all the comforts.

Lanikai Love
This is by far the best house in Lanikai if you want to wake up to a daily gorgeous sunrise directly in front of the Mokes, walk to Lanikai (and Kailua) beaches, have a great 3 mile walk around the neighborhood loop and just generally relax. The house is stocked with everything you need in the kitchen, there are plenty of places to relax both outside and inside, the neighbors are sweet and the owners are very responsive and nice. The back yard is perfect for relaxing or for dining outside. The outside shower is great for rinsing off after spending hours in the ocean; which we did every single day. The neighborhood is generally quiet and we spent hours at night in the back yard or on walks, staring at the clouds and stars. Whole Foods and other stores are just a 10 minute drive away, and Buzz's Steakhouse is the best place to walk or drive to for lunch. Sit at the bar and order the fish sandwich and a Mai Tai...the best! We will definitely stay there again and look forward to it.

Best Vacation House Ever!!
I have been back on the mainland for a week now and my heart aches when I look at the pictures of our beautiful ocean front house. From the moment you arrive you know you will not want to leave this place. Rent your kayak on the way to the house, pick up some food and beverage and you are set for your stay. Gorgeous white sand beaches, crystal clear water, sea turtles swimming right by your house, snorkeling for hours, kayaking to the islands, PIll box hike right in your neighborhood, Ocean breezes at night. The house had EVERYTHING we needed bath towels, beach towels, washer/dryer, ironing board, wifi, dishes, pots,pans, outdoor shower, grill, boogie boards,hammock, beach chairs, icemaker in fridge...the list goes on and on. The lanai was our living space. We ate, relaxed and hung out there. I would highly recommend this house if you are visiting Oahu.

Mahalo, Mahalo, Mahalo!
We came to this place for the wedding of our daughter, sister, and friend. It was perfect that we were all able to stay together in this beautiful house on the water. This excellent setting with the view of the 2 little islands, with the outriggers, kayakers, boaters and swimmers brought back the memories of the beautiful place that brought us all together, Palau, and that made us all family. ... We so enjoyed our early morning swims with the gorgeous sunrises. The colors from the sunsets were amazing. The stargazing incredible. All the neighbors were so kind and friendly. Most of all we enjoyed our daughter's, sisters's and friend's wedding that was a dream come true for us all. We made so may more beautiful memories here to share with one another and friends when we meet again.

Thank you, we had a great time here, a beautiful palce and perfect, just what the doctor ordered--to be able to relax and unwind from life on the mainland. Beautiful!

We had a lovely stay in this beautiful place this week. Our original purpose for the trip was our daughters' graduation from University of Hawaii. But the trip became so much more. A rare opportunity to enjoy our two grown children at the same time. My father died last month so this also provided my mother and all of us a needed respite. The tranquility & beauty were very healing and we are sorry to go home so soon.
Mahalo mucho for all the hospitality - The Matlocks, California

Reviews

  • This is a fantastic spot. Accommodation is quite basic, but more than adequate. We absolutely loved the time we spent at Honu Hale. I would return in a second.

  • Excellent. Loved the new improvements. Hope you found the house clean and tidy as we left it and look forward to our cleaning bond being returned.

  • This was a great property. I'm big on peace and quiet, and this property provided exactly that. A nearby dog barked a few times during the day on a few separate days, but never at night. And a neighbor and his friends in the gigantic property to the left woke me up cursing loudly in their yard at 7am one morning, which was weird. Other than that, it was very peaceful. The neighbor that lives behind the rental property is named Wayne (I think). He was a very nice guy. As another reviewer noted, the actual beach is a short walk away. It's about a 10 - 15 minute walk down the street to a public beach access walkway around property 1104, which brings you onto a secluded beach which was very nice. Plenty of coral for snorkeling in front of about 1/2 of the beach there, with mostly open water near the beach on the other half for swimming. Outstanding. Better than the other beaches in my opinion (unless you want to surf in waves near the beach). Also, I love to swim and you have a great place to do it right in front of the property. I loved walking down the stone steps there at the oceanfront stone wall at the end of the yard down to the ocean, where the area is great for wading and swimming. Careful, though, when going down those steps. The stone steps are a bit steep and rough on your feet, and the last couple can be a bit slippery from the high tide. Plus, the house comes equipped with some body boards, water toys, coolers and some snorkel gear. A nice touch! Also, if you have a kayak or the like, you can boat out to the two nearby small islands, one of which has a small beach on it as well. I saw people from nearby houses heading out there a lot, and wished I could have joined them. My stay was during the first week in January, and it was in the 70s and sunny almost the entire week. The full moon also luckily happened right when I got there, so I never encountered jelly fish (which show up around 9 days after a full moon) at this or any of the other beaches I visited. That was a huge plus! The water this time of year was a bit chilly, but still great once you were in it for a few minutes and got used to it. A bummer for me was how Shark's Cove up near the North Shore was supposed to be a snorkeler's paradise, but in January it's a treacherous area full of torrential waves that are not safe for anyone. Oh well, maybe next time during the summer! By the way, the fruit basket waiting for me was awesome. Thank you for that! I'm hoping they might install a dishwasher, as that was one of the only luxuries I missed not having. I knew it didn't have one when I rented, still I'm mentioning it with the hopes they might upgrade to one eventually. That aside, the kitchen is well stocked with silverware, plates, pans and dish ware. The bathrooms also have plenty of wash clothes and towels. The only big downside was the wireless router had gone bad and I couldn't salvage it, so I had to buy a new router in order to have wireless internet. So the Linksys N router is courtesy of me. I wrote up instructions for accessing the wireless network and put them in the white folder there on the table. Also, the white folder which I'm assuming is courtesy of the owner, is chock full of great info and resources for the visit. Not sure when I can make it back to Oahu, but this rental property will be high on my list for a place to stay!
