The Garden Studio in Lanikai is perfect for couples! The studio is in the small and quiet ocean front “village” of Lanikai, and is very private and perfectly-decorated for a romantic getaway. No one walks past the cottage or can see past the lush tropical flowers and privacy fence, so you can leave the blinds and windows completely open to enjoy the tropical breeze, see the tropical plants, and hear the birds singing in the morning. The decorations are perfect for Hawaii: you feel like you’re living in a local’s cottage, with many shells, paintings, books, and photographs from around Lanikai which creates a very warm and personal environment. There’s even a small hula dancer statue on the kitchen table. We love lounging in the private yard under the garden umbrella. We enjoy Rick & Nina’s property so much that we stay here every time we visit Oahu! The amenities, especially beach chairs, beach towels, and beach umbrella make our days at the beach much more enjoyable, plus we don’t have to pack as much in our bag or buy beach gear for our visits. Rick and Nina are the perfect hosts: you have complete privacy, yet they are readily available by phone. There is a large book full of information about the property, places to eat, and things to do. This side of Oahu is gorgeous and quiet. When you sit on the beach, you have a picture-perfect view of the Mokulua islets (seabird sanctuaries), the turquoise water, palm trees, occasional sand crabs and kayakers. Best of all, you have an unobstructed view of the lushness of Oahu (without high-rise buildings). Honestly, this place is worth every penny we spend.

Staying here feels like you're living like a local. I guess that's why you'd choose to stay in a licensed rental over a hotel. I like to mix it up but there is a lot to be said for living like you always live there. Well, pretending at least. Because there are no hotels in Lanikai, you really do get to experience just how chilled life could be if this was real life. If only! Our two-bedroom, one-bathroom accommodation was atop the home of our host and the cost at this peak time was about $US370 a night (including taxes) ... so not cheap but similar to beachside in Australia at peak times. There's also a one-bedroom garden studio on the property. We had an off-street parking spot (a serious win as street parking is limited) and it was just across the one-way street to the beach laneway. We loved the very "Hawaiian" decor, a mix of local and vintage art, cane furniture and woven bamboo ceilings - anywhere else it would feel kitsch but here it was decidedly cool.  The sea breezes kept things cool and the wide eaves meant we could leave the window open, allowing us to fall asleep listening to the rain. The kitchenette was well appointed for basic cooking (microwave, plug-in hotplate, toaster, drip-coffee machine). The only thing we would have loved would have been on-site laundry facilities ... but who doesn't love really living like a local and experiencing a laundromat on holidays!?

Our stay in the Lanikai Garden Studio was amazing. The studio was sparkling clean and included everything a traveler could need to feel at home. The proximity to the beach can't be beat. Rick and Nini are outstanding hosts!

We have previously stayed in and enjoyed the Lanikai Garden Studio (before the remodel) but it wasn’t available this year for our dates so we decided to splurge on the Treehouse. We have stayed in three other rentals in the area and the Treehouse was worth the money. An off-road parking spot is the first win; we learned this the hard way having had to search for spots on a rainy night and lug grocery bags back to a previous unit with no dedicated parking. The unit itself and the amenities are the second win. Lovely breezes, sunshine and birdsong are provided by all the windows. Full stocked kitchen and linen closets offer all you need to cook, stay clean and enjoy time at the beach. Beach towels, beach chairs, cooler, and other beach toys are all readily available in the unit. Welcome snacks, juice, coffee, a pineapple and a bottle of wine waited for us upon checkin. The owners, Rick & Nini are super hosts. They know all about the area, provide answers to all questions, check in on you via email and text and know how to make you feel at home without hovering or reciting rules. Last but of course foremost is the location. Great stores and restaurants are found in area but it’s ALL ABOUT THE BEACH! Even with shifting sands, Lanikai Beach, a short walk down the access lane is one of the most wonderful beaches on all the Hawaiian islands. And if you get bored there, just take a 5-10 minute walk down the road to the beach at the State Park. Plenty of beach for nice long walks, life guards and always lots of activities to engage in or just watch. Definitely on my list of recommendations for anybody visiting Oahu and on my wish list for a return stay !
