About Lanikai - Pay for a Reservation
Honu Hale Lanikai is a simple and comfortable two bedroom oceanfront vacation home in beautiful Lanikai on the island of Oahu. It has one bedroom/one bath in the main house and a separate large private bedroom and bath upstairs. It can accommodate up to 6 people--2 each in the bedrooms and 2 on the queen sofa bed in the living room.

Honu Hale ("Turtle House") is located exactly in front of the Mokulua Islands, providing endless hours of outstanding views from both bedrooms as well as the living room, backyard, and sundeck.  Easy access (a short stairway down to the ocean) means you can swim, snorkel, kayak, fish, etc. right from your yard. Your days are filled with the sounds of waves, tradewinds blowing through the coconut trees and picturesque sailboats, kayakers and canoes going by. Lanikai provides a fun and healthy lifestyle in a friendly beach community. It's perfect for families as well as couples wanting a relaxed Hawaiian style home environment away from the busy and crowded resort areas.

Some entries from our guest book:

Mahalo, Mahalo, Mahalo!
We came to this place for the wedding of our daughter, sister, and friend. It was perfect that we were all able to stay together in this beautiful house on the water. This excellent setting with the view of the 2 little islands, with the outriggers, kayakers, boaters and swimmers brought back the memories of the beautiful place that brought us all together, Palau, and that made us all family. ... We so enjoyed our early morning swims with the gorgeous sunrises. The colors from the sunsets were amazing. The stargazing incredible. All the neighbors were so kind and friendly. Most of all we enjoyed our daughter's, sisters's and friend's wedding that was a dream come true for us all. We made so may more beautiful memories here to share with one another and friends when we meet again.

Thank you so very much for the wonderful stay in your beautiful home. We had such a relaxing vaction here. The view is incredible and we loved the privacy! Our kids will never forget this experience, nor will we! Everything was just perfect--couldn't ask for a more accommodating home away from home.

Each day a coconut floats in from "unknown" islands. Watching crabs (from a safe spot) walk along. Watching many bird or geckos, that's what I did.

Thanks for hosting our vacation! We loved the sunrises, Air Chair (we bought one for back home), ping-pong games, hammock and the Internet for researching Luau times, etc. We really liked the at upstairs. We loved taking pictures of the 2 islands and playing soccer in thebackyard with a beach ball. The geckos were great and swaying palm trees were perfect in our pictures.

We hope to come back soon! The Ross/Wingavaer families

Thank you, we had a great time here, a beautiful palce and perfect, just what the doctor ordered--to be able to relax and unwind from life on the mainland. Beautiful! We had so much fun with our 3 children.

We had a lovely stay in this beautiful place this week. Our original purpose for the trip was our daughters' graduation from University of Hawaii. But the trip became so much more. A rare opportunity to enjoy our two grown children at the same time. My father died last month so this also provided my mother and all of us a needed respite. The tranquility & beauty were very healing and we are sorry to go home so soon.

Mahalo mucho for all the hospitality - The Matlocks, California

We are wishing our stay could be longer. The house is so comfortable it feels like we live here again. My husband and I have missed the Kailua life style ever since leaving in 1997. Although we have come back to visit many times, this is the first stay that made us feel back at home. We never had a view like this one before and it is mesmerizing. We spent our first day in the back yard just watching the water. I was beginning to doubt the hype that Lanikai is known for turtles but then saw two near the house in the same day. There is nothing better than jumping into the ocean from your backyard and rinsing off in the outdoor shower!

We all loved it here. Traci & Rod, Cathi & Kirk

We sure enjoyed the property and peaceful, beautifully fenced yard; view of ocean blues, open sky, Mokes and the fantastic swimming turtles were great! We appreciated all of the various, interesting visiting spots for our family; both inside your home and outside. We had a wonderful stay. Some of the family sure enjoyed paddle boarding and snorkeling & a bit of surfing…..they did finally close one beach up the road because of the Presidential visit, so, it was great that we could do so much right from the house and other nearby beaches. The baby enjoyed the balls and toys…….we contributed some new buckets for sand play, etc. We know that guests must always appreciate the BBQ and fully equipped kitchen; we did. We were very happy that the laundry worked well (esp. because of the baby) and the “tons of towels” available was super too!! Almost every window looks out to the sea; Mom, Dad, baby and grandpa and grandma will always remember our fun times by the sea at Honu Hale Lanikai!!!!

Read a book or nap in the hammock under the coconut trees as the sounds of the gentle ocean sooth your mind.
