You need to be here

Review by Wade W.

5 out of 5 stars
Phenomenal experience with the place. The house immediately feels like home, there’s really no need to leave with the beach right across the street and a pool in your front yard. We stayed for a really long time and had an awesome experience. I can’t recommend this home enough. You need to be here. Our family of four loved loved loved our stay at this lovely home. The location is second to none and the feel of the home is very comfortable and makes you feel like you are at home. Being familiar with the area, we were also super impressed with the lack of critters in and around the house being to close to the beach and surrounded by greenery. Well done Kula Lanikai. Also, great communication and taking care of whatever we needed. Highly recommend.


Great vacation!

We had the best vacation experience with this rental. We were greeted at the house when we arrived and had a tour of the house and all the amenities. The house was in a wonderful location so we could enjoy both beach and pool. The beach was literally just across the street. We are already planning a vacation back to this house in the near future.

Excellent home in the perfect location

This was the perfect house for our family vacation. We were greeted at the house with a tour and all the extras included with the house such as a beach cooler/chairs and pool toys (including a puddle jumper for our little one). The house was right across the street from a beach access walkway, making the trip to the beach a less than 1 minute walk! The beach was stunning and being on the east side of the island made for beautiful sunrises. The house was fully equipped for all our cooking needs. We made several meals at home but also enjoyed going to the local Island Snow for a treat after a hot day on the beach. For the days we didn’t go to the beach we spent lounging by the pool and grilling on the back deck. We loved this home and have already talked about our next stay at this property.

The house is charming, clean, and well-appointed, and the location is fantastic. The most beautiful beach on O’ahu is just across the street and down a short, sandy path. My family of five, three college-age kids, had a wonderful family trip. There is not a big comfy lounging – style hang-out space for 5 people to watch a movie, or similar, but we loved the house and would absolutely stay there again. The pool was well-maintained and we used it every day, loved having it. Outdoor shower a plus! The check-in/check-out was seamless, with excellent communication..

Wonderful vacation

Clean and beautiful house, steps away from the Lanikai beach! Kids loved the pool! We vacated with grandparents, their room was on another side of the house, with its own entrance, bathroom and small kitchen. They really enjoyed that! Great vacation, cannot wait to comeback!

Great vacation!

This was our first stay at this property, after several previous stays in different properties in Kailua, and was by far the best. Beach access is close. The house is well stocked, well maintained, and the management is attentive. We couldn’t ask for more!

2min walk to heavenly beach

Enterance is through the doors facing the pool, walk into the living room and there are two wings. One to the master bedroom with onsuite. The other wing has one large bedroom and a second room with two beds. We went with our parents who took the master bedroom and we took the other wing and our daughter stayed in her own room which turned out perfectly. Living room and dining and kitchen was between the wings. The place isn’t big but enough for the five of us. We spent most of our time at the beach which is literally two min walk from the house. Lanikai beach is not as crowded as Kailua beach also it’s great for snorkeling as there are coral reefs. Once we were back from the beach in the morning we would spend our time at the pool and Terrance. We drove to Kailua town for lunch and on our way home we went to Whole Foods to prepare for a BBQ. By 4 pm we opened a bottle of beer or wine and started to heat the grill. We finished dinner by 7am and we each enjoyed our time either for a night stroll or Netflix in our own rooms. It was a relaxing well rested 7 nights in Oahu.

Perfect, and location was awesome given that n Leah grew up in the neighborhood. Great beach access right across the street, Pull Box home and Ridge Hikes are super close and a great way to start the day. Pool was solid, and again perfect.

Kula Lanikai

Review by Matthew K.

5 out of 5 stars
Perfect house, perfect location. We stayed for a month and enjoyed every minute of it. Kitchen was stocked with all the appliances and gadgets needed for a month long stay. A couple minor issues arose but were handled promptly. There are AC units in each of the 3 bedrooms that we turned on only in the evenings. During the days, we opened the French doors and ran the fans. Have worked with this property management in the past, could not be more user friendly and professional. Would love to return next summer.

Our stay at “Kula Lanikai” was wonderful!

Review by Todd H.

It was very clean, comfortable, inviting and a perfect location for our family. We loved being able to spend time on the beach every day, which to access is literally across the street. The kids spent the entire trip in the water, running back and forth from the beach to the pool too many times to count. Nice touch having the heated outdoor shower to rinse them all off. Our sunrise walks on the beach were nothing short of breathtaking. We marveled at the incredible orange and red skys with each sunrise and were treated to multiple rainbows and even whales off in the distance. The kitchen was well appointed and hanging out around the decks made for prefect BBQ afternoons. The staff at Villa Rentals match the accommodations, nothing short of excellent. Everything was even better than we expected. Highly recommend this home. Can’t wait to come back!

Excellent house next to kid friendly beach

11 days in paradise

5 out of 5 stars
Our rental property gave us the perfect family vacation in Hawaii!! It was beautifully decorated with up to date amenities and for those who love to cook the kitchen was awesome. We were so close to the beach and the pool in the yard gave the kids the perfect place to play/swim when we returned to the house. We also were so pleased with the pool toys because we never would have brought all of the wonderful things with us because of flying. Returning there again would be a dream!!

An amazing home in paradise close to the beach!

Review by Linda O.

We loved the setting and with 3 generations on vacation wanted something that would meet everyone’s needs. The pool and small yard area were great for the kids to play while we relaxed or folks jogged before breakfast. The beach is one of our favorites with this being our 3rd year vacationing in this part of Hawaii. I would return to this particular house again as they had everything one could possibly want to cook with plus games etc to amuse the kids. It did feel like being in a slice of paradise!!!

Lovely stay in Lanikai

Review by Catherine L.

5 out of 5 stars
We have stayed in Kailua/Lanikai area many times over the past 7 years and Kula Lanikai is by far our favorite house. The renovated open space plan was beautiful and allowed us to be comfortable (felt like we could relax with two adults, two kids coming in and out of pool and from beach). We enjoyed the pool everyday as well as beach access across the street. The house has everything you could imagine – from fully stocked essentials (soap, shampoo/conditioner, etc) to extra thoughtful items (scotch tape/scissors, plenty of beach/pool toys, first aide kit, ice cream maker). It is very apparent the owner has exceptional taste and makes sure all of the guests are taken care of – every detail is thought of. We will be back – this is our go to house for Lanikai. Mahalo!

Still dreaming about our stay at the Kula Lanikai!

Our family just spent 8 nights at the Kula Lanikai and it could not have been more perfect. The home accommodated our family of five to perfection. Home is outfitted well to support all your needs from cooking to a day spent at the beach. Access to one of the most beautiful beaches on the island is right across the street!!! Even with all of our beach time, we still enjoyed the pool daily. Next time we return to Hawaii it will be to the Kula Lanikai!!!! We are so grateful for the memories made at this beautiful place. Mahalo.

House was newly remodelled. Very clean and comfortable. Very relaxing. Great location.

We loved this house!

Review by Kyra P.

This house was perfect! We stayed at the house for six weeks while working on a job, and we had our families come and visit. One side of the house had a master bedroom and another bedroom with twin beds, the living room and kitchen in the middle and the other side of the house had another bedroom with small kitchenette, so It was great to two families. The main kitchen was amazing and the best part was the pool. Even with the most beautiful beach a few steps away from us the kids still enjoyed the pool on a daily basis. Highly recommend this house.

Sweet little cottage close to beach

Review by Ann C.

4 out of 5 stars
We stayed at the Kula Lanikai for two weeks. Very close to the beach. Would have liked the pool temperature to be a touch warmer, maybe 5 degrees, it was colder than the ocean water. The kitchen was beautiful, well appointed with lovely appliances. I would suggest that the owners provide better knives and some spices. Also, the furniture in the house was not terribly comfortable nor were the wooden lounge chairs, we kept slipping down in them. The wooden stairs to the deck were very slippery when wet, so slippery that my sister fell and had to go to an emergency room for x-rays. Overall, property was nice. The location could not be beat.
