Aloha! Great place, feels like the perfect beach house. Plenty of every comfort that you need. The hosts make you feel at home and welcome any questions or needs that you may have they do their very best to help. If you are into cooking during vacations you may find the cooking area maybe a bit too simple,but we did... More

My husband and I spent two wonderful weeks in April at the Lanikai Bed & Breakfast in the Garden Studio. This was our second stay with Rick and Nini. We again had a wonderful time and were sorry to leave. The studio is equipped with everything you need for a very enjoyable stay and you could not ask for a... More

I agree with all the other reviews for the Garden Studio, they describe the room, the neighborhood, and the owners very accurately. What I will add is the level of hospitality is way above other places I have stayed in Hawaii. The owners have anticipated your every need and have provided things large and small that make you very much... More

Our other accommodation didn't work out, but Rich was able to host us for a few days. The studio was spacious, clean and felt like a home away from home. Quick walk to beautiful Lanikai beach with beach chairs, boogie boards and a cooler to enjoy! Only wish we would have reserved this studio to start off because it worth... More

Everything was coordinated through Rick Maxey and he was more than helpful and accommodating with great directions from the airport, easy of payment(we used a personal check for the bulk of payment), and the location/apartment was exactly as described! We had fresh muffins waiting for us when we... More

This was our first visit to Hawaii, we did some inslandhopping, the garden studio in Kailua was our first place to stay. We found this place in the internet and instantly liked it. Payment and contract was easy to deal. We arrived late, which was no problem at all (after a 20-30 minute ride from the airport) and had a... More

I grew up in Lanikai almost across the street from this property so I know what a perfect paradise this spot is. When I discovered you could actually rent a vacation property here I thought it was too good to be true. I was not at all disappointed. My husband and I have stayed several times in both the Tree...

Thge treehouse is well situated on a somewhat secluded beautiful part of the bay. CLose proximity to town and some great restaurants. You will feel like a local and the neighborhood is primarily year around residents. No black socks wearing tourists anywhere near the tree house. Great hiking on the hills behind the house as well. Everything was there that... More
