    I stayed in the front lower unit for 12 days in March/April 2014. Very comfortable, and the hosts are friendly, attentive, and alert to your needs. Just a few steps to one of the most beautiful beaches anywhere in Hawaii – it’s nice to be so close. Walk to the south end of Lanikai beach when the sun is high and marvel at the almost surreal turguoise of the waters.

    For a beach all your own, take #72 to Tinker Road, then to Bellows Field Beach Park. Miles of beach – no people. I’ve never experienced it anywhere in Hawaii before (though I haven’t yet been to Kaui).

    One suggestion – the 2 east studios front the one way street out of the Lanikai area, which the daily commuters use (of course, as it’s the only street). If you want a deeper quiet in the morning, consider booking one of the two west (backyard) studios.

    The combination of price and proximity really can’t be beat.

    Thanks to Mary for a wonderful stay.

    Love love love. My husband and I stayed here for a week and we can’t wait to go back!

  3. […] experience even better was staying 30 yards from the most beautiful beach on the island at Lanikai Studios (Kailua Beach […]

  4. Jan and Marc says:

    We had a wonderful stay at Lanikai Studios. It has everything you can imagine to make you feel right at home! Quiet and very clean with lots of supplied beach gear. The bed was awesome and we slept like babies! Our private patio entrance was great for morning coffee.
    We were impressed with everything. The location is perfect, only a two minute walk to one of the most fabulous beaches in the world. Merry and Gary are so easy to work with and were very knowledgeable of things to do and places to visit on Oahu. This was a vacation of a life time! I can’t wait to go back to Hawaii and will once again stay at Lanikai Studios!

  5. Nanci & Greg says:

    very positive experience from end-to-end. quaint studios, yet room for us to move.  enjoyed morning sunrise with beautiful beach across the street.  we would return.

  6. Nanci & Greg says:

    Our stay last month was positive.  Studio is clean, quaint – yet roomy enough for the two of us.  Walk across street to beautiful beach and morning sunrise.  Birds start chirping early, but it is sweet sound to wake up to.  We would return to the Lanikai Studios and appreciate Mary's thoroughness and attention to detail from beginning to end of our stay. 

  7. We have been many places, but so far this is the best!  Lanikai is a paradise!!!  The house is just great!!!  Thank you for all! (10-23 to 10-30-2012)

    This place is in a fantastic location & an easy walk to a great beach!  The room was very clean & had everything we needed.  Stayed 6 days and we don't want to leave.  Very friendly and kind hostess – nothing was too much trouble.  Thanks Mary.  We will be back!  (Nov. 2012)

  9. Amol & Alka says:

    Loved Lanikai Studios.  So warm and cozy.  We enjoyed so many sunrises at Lanikai beach.  Most beautiful sunrise @ Lanikai beach.  Convenient location, saved time in getting to places for site seeing.

    Thank you for making our stay so wonderful (Jan 2013)

  10. We really enjoyed our stay at Lanikai Studios!  Thanks for the friendly welcome, helpful suggestions, and beautiful room!  We will definitely recommend you to our friends!  Aloha!  (Nov. 2012)

  11. Great place to stay, next to a postcard beach.  Thank you for all the suggestions and we look forward to return for a longer stay (Oct. 2012)

  12. Dale & Lynda says:

    Great visit!  Took a bit to figure out where things were.
    Cinnamons is the BEST breakfast.  Reasonable.
    Formaggios is the BEST dinner – $pendy
    Mary & Gary are priceless!
    Thank you!

  13. Gary & Mary says:

    We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and hope to welcome you back again!

  14. Tim Middleton says:

    Edwina and I enjoyed a fantastic holiday earlier this month (December 2012).  The Lanikai Studios provided very comfortable lodgings and Mary was a very friendly and helpful host.  Kailua is an ideal spot for those wanting to get away from the hustle and bustle of Honolulu / Waikiki.  A great location for a relaxing holiday!

  15. Randy says:

    This is my new “home away from home”, what a perfect studio next to the perfect East shore beach!
    Mary & Gary thank you so much for your aloha spirit and friendship, I can’t wait to come back!
    These studio’s have it all, this is “as advertised” clean, functional, safe, comfortable and nice Hawaiian decor. Its not the Ritz Carlton, if thats what you expect your on the wrong website this isn’t a hotel, but this neighborhood, property & Lani Kai beach is world class to the best!
    I have recommended Lanikai Studios to all my friends.

    Thank you again!

  16. Christopher says:

    that was a very nice stay. I´m very supprised about the changes here. New Managers came in and everything look´s much better than befor. Fresh cleaned up rooms in a quiet wounderful location.
    I´ll be back soon.

  17. Kris says:

    Thank you for a wonderful week and wonderful accommodation. The studio was very quaint and felt like home.
    I appreciate the thoughtfulness of choosing the studio with the Zen garden and also the choice of having the more private studio in back.
    You were very helpful! I will recommend Lanikai Studios to my friends and will be in touch the next time I’m on the Island.
    Thank you again!
    Kris :)
    P.S. All the websites and reviews hardly do this place justice. :)

  18. We loved the studio. It was charming. Our little garden was delightful. The location ideal. We ran daily on the 2.5 mile loop. We swam daily at the beach –a 2min walk away. We kayaked to flat island–wonderful! And we hiked the entire Kailua beach 5 mile RT. Each night we walked to Buzz’s for dinner and mornings we went to Agnes’ for malasadas! A perfect trip.

    One suggestion for our studio. Another towel rack in the bathroom would go a long way to eliminating moldy towels. There’s plenty of space on the wall to the left as you enter the bathroom. Also a folding drying rack on the patio would give us a place to dry suits, towels, and everything that’s damp from the sea.

    Thanks again.

      We have implemented your suggestions for a towel racks and folding dryer racks in all units. In addition to another towel rack in the bathroom, we have added over the door hooks and are adding medicine cabinets as well.

      We hope you return to see the changes we’ve made :)

  19. Juli says:

    We would recommend this place if you want to truly relax in a most exquisite location. Very quiet, a nice home base to explore the island of Oahu. Close enough to Kailua so you have all the necessities, but you have a neighborhood feel that makes you feel like you are coming back home after a refreshing day at the beach. Just lovely.

  20. Julie and Kevin Hepler says:

    I wanted to thank our host Sally. We came to visit my son and daughter in law for Thanksgiving. Our studio was a lovely charming, quiet and comfortable place to relax. We only had to walk 100 steps to get to Lanikai Beach, the most beautiful place on earth. We had such a wonderful time and were so at home, wanted to move in and never leave. I am looking forward to coming again next year. Thanks for being such a friendly and helpful host.
