My husband and I looked for a nice romantic place for our honeymoon and decided we wanted to stay in Kailua, because we had read such wonderful things about the beach.

So after much searching we decided to stay at Lanikai B&B and when we got there we were disappointed right away.

I had told the owner we were on our honeymoon and that it was my first time to Hawaii, so I was hoping maybe for a little 'something' to show congrats on getting married or something - but nothing.

The ants were GROSS in this place, we were told this was common on the island, but it's not fun to open up your suitcase in the morning and find ants in your clothes.

The beach access that this B&B is near is more like water access, because there is no sand at the access. You have to walk 10 minutes to get to the 'beach' part.

I would definetly stay in Kailua again, but NOT at this B&B.

I am sorry that your expectations vs. your experience in our garden studio prompted you to post such a degrading review. We have hosted guests since the mid 80’s and many are repeat customers from years past. We are always more than accommodating to a guests special request, although it helpful when they, the guest makes their requests known.

The beach across the street is only available at “low tide”, ocean at all other tide periods. The beach access north of us is a five (5) minute walk, not ten (10). If you did in fact stay with us, you were forewarned of this by my self and within our rental agreement which details our beach status. If you truly did stay in our studio, you know exactly what I am referring to.

Ants? Yes, occasionally we have ants and so does everyone else in the islands. At times they are more abundant due to the weather. My apologies for this inconvenience. We do have regular, professional pest control treatment and will continue to do so.

The process of posting potentially fraudulent reviews of a property without stating who the author is leaves much room for abuse. We have worked very hard for many years to establish ourselves with our business and with the relationships of our many guests who return year after year.

My husband and I were looking for a quiet little place to celebrate our 2nd anniversary and I stumbled across Lanikai Bed & Breakfast on the internet. The room was very clean, the garden out back was extremely relaxing. We're looking forward to going back again. For $125 a night, we felt that we got an excellent deal and were able to see Hawaii for what it really is.
