Lanikai clings tenaciously to its laidback, beachy vibe, even in the face of a growing number of visitors. Spend the night in an old-style, homey, and comfortable Lanikai house just across the street from the beach to feel a part of the neighborhood. Lanikai Beach Rentals offers a range of units, from a garden studio decorated in Hawaiiana print and rattan furniture to the beachfront house once the residence of John Walker, who built the Bishop Museum and Honolulu Hale. The properties are furnished with cooking utensils and beach equipment—all you need to make it home.
