Mary and Gary are the BEST hosts we have ever stayed with. We traveled with our two young adult children and rented two units. They both were quite large, very well decorated, and had all of the conveniences that came in handy when enjoying meals on the beach and in the backyard of our unit. Mary is so knowledgeable about the area and so very thoughtful. My favorite part of our stay was getting up early every morning and taking my coffee down to the beach where I could visit with the locals and their dogs. Lanikai Beach is one of the top twenty beached via Conde Nast - and every time we have been back, it just gets more beautiful. We enjoyed about a thirty second walk to the water every evening and watched night come over the Mokolua Islands. Mary and Gary's place is also within a few minutes walk to the Pillbox trailhead. This is a MUST do while you are staying in Lanikai. We have already booked next year and are hoping to bring extended family and friends. Thanks Mary and Gary!
