“Loved my stay !”
Lanikai Studios was in a great location, conveniently close to the beautiful Lanikai beach. The beds were very comfortable and me had everything we needed. I was travelling with my sister and daughter, and Mary was kind enough to go out and buy a futon the week before we arrived so that my daughter had a comfortable bed to sleep on. Mary was very sweet and accommodating to our requests. We loved our stay and hope to go back again one day. Mahalo!
Response from the owner Glad you enjoyed your stay and was thrilled to find the futon couch to replace the air mattress for a 3rd person as yours was the only room without one. Don't forget to post some pictures to our Lanikai Studios Facebook page, as they say "a picture is worth a thousand words." Much Aloha, Mary & Gary, caretakers for Eva F. Allerstorfer
“Lanikai Studios is the most beautiful and friendly place on earth.”
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!
Response from the owner It was so nice to meet you after having to delay your trip. Don't forget to post some pictures to our Lanikai Studios Facebook page. See you again!
“Absolutely perfect place with a good balance of comfort, privacy and convenience.”
This location was within walking distance to the most beautiful beach (we were greeted by a juvenile sea turtle on our first day!) and the BEST little grocery/deli (Kalapawai Market) in addition to being just minutes from Kailua's shopping and street fairs. If you walk/jog/hike this is the place to be!! Accomodations were perfect for me and my son!!
Response from the owner So glad you enjoyed your stay and we hope to welcome you again. Mary & Gary
“This is the perfect place to stay”
I absolutely love Lanikai Studios: From the property managers to the room to all the amenities, this is the BEST place to stay. You are only steps away from beautiful Lanikai Beach on a quiet, residential neighborhood. I appreciated the peace and quiet. The room has everything you need: Real towels instead of thin hotel towels, beach towels, a small kitchen with dishes, pots and pans, a dorm fridge, wine glasses and a bottle opener to name just a few things. The decor is adorable. I travel to Hawaii for work and this room is my retreat. They also offer beach chairs, boogie boards and other things to use to enjoy the beach while you are there - no hotel offers that!! Also, I loathe the crowds and traffic of Honolulu and Waikiki.... if you want shopping and fine dining and throngs of people, stay there. If you want a local, peaceful, beautiful Hawaiian experience, stay at Lanikai Studios
Response from the owner We appreciate your glowing review and look forward to welcoming you again, and again. It's a pleasure seeing our recurring guests make Lanikai Studios their home away from home.
“Great little find!”
This great little find is located 45 seconds from one of the best beaches in Oahu. It's 5 mins from central Kailua (shops, restaurants, conveniences), and has parking. The place was clean and suited the needs of 3 people with no problem. The manager was very accommodating and very nice. There are 3 other studios on the property but we hardly heard any of the other guests, so no disturbances! :) It has a small kitchenette that accommodates preparation of small meals (breakfast, sandwiches, etc.) The property provides beach chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards, and towels. All you have to do is wake up and walk to the beach.
Cozy, wonderful studio, best location, just 3 minutes walk from one of the most amazing beaches in the world. Hosts were very helpful and friendly at all times. Looking forward to be there again soon!
“A very, very, very short stroll from the beach”
We were met by Mary and although she had a bad cold she was very welcoming. A clean, tidy apartment overlooking a very lush green garden. There was another apartment opposite us and someone below us. We were very comfortable and it wasn't noisy at all. You do need a car to go exploring, unless you're going to spend all your time on the beach. Which is only a very, very short walk away. DO go there to see the sunrise, It's worth it. Whilst we were there the sea was a bit rough so swimming was difficult, but we did grab some time to enjoy the beach. Good fun to watch the paddle boarders, surfers and canoes. There's one shop and the one restaurant in town - Buzz's! Excellent steak (which my husband really enjoyed). It gets really busy, so make sure you book. It's been there since the 60s and well worth a visit. Having drinks at the bar is also fun. Everything shuts down early (about 9/10ish) so only come to Kailua if you want rest and relaxation. Which is just what we wanted for a couple of days. Really like our apartment and left all rested back to Honolulu and home. Thank you Mary for a great stay.
Response from the owner We are so glad you enjoyed your time with us and hope to welcome you again. We appreciate the time you took to write a review for us!
“10 weeks in paradise”
We recently returned from 10 weeks at Lanikai Studios. We stayed in Honolulu on 2 previous Hawaii trips and chose to stay in Lanikai this time. It was a decision we did not regret - it was so quiet and relaxing. Our hosts Mary and Gary were wonderful! Mary was there any time we needed her. She had a binder in the unit containing any information we might need about the area. The unit was very clean and comfortable, providing everything we needed. This location is just steps from the most beautiful beach we have ever seen. We enjoyed walking to the Kalapawai Market for coffee or sandwiches, and to Island Snow for shaved ice. Many thanks to Mary and Gary for making our stay one we will never forget! We are already planning a return trip to Lanikai Studios and recommend it to anyone. Mahalo and aloha! Glenn & Jenni
Response from the owner We are so glad you enjoyed your time at Lanikai Studios. We are especially thankful for the friendship we now have with you both. Looking forward to your return.
“Week in paradise”
Perfect location, nice accommodation, very friendly and helpful hosts.
Response from the owner Thank you for taking the time to post a review for us! We strive to make our guests time here at Lanikai Studios a comfortable and enjoyable one. Hope to welcome you again.
In a big house we had one big bedroom extremely clean with a small kitchen counter enough to be able to warm up a meal in the microwave which I found very practical. Lanai is great if you are on the back of the house view on the garden. Extremely noisy if on Moluka drive with heavy noisy traffic. Luckily we were able to exchange room from front to back of the house a couple of days after arrival with the great help of the manager. Fortunately the other couple preferred the view on Moluka drive. The manager accommodated every body for the best. The beach is at a few steps. Parking is a blessing at that location. Property needs upgrading which the manager seems to try to do as much as she can. The property is very clean thanks to this manager.
Response from the owner We are thankful that the room change suited you. Although the front unit facing Mokulua drive does get traffic noise, there are return guests who prefer it (as was the case with the people who switched with you). We appreciate your kind words as we strive to do our best for our guests and property owner.
