Built in the 1940s, Lanikai Oceanside was once the coveted summer home to Princess Abigail Kawananakoa, a beloved Hawaiian princess who was a politician and ruler in the historic Hawaiian monarchy. Kept within the royal family for years, the home was later sold to a respected prominent family of Hawaii in 1956. The residence embodies a special historic energy, it is no wonder why so many influential individuals have chosen it over and over again.

With beach chic, mid-century modern interiors, this home is a trendy and stylish reimagined classic.

Gather with friends and family in one of the two spacious living/dining rooms, depending on if you prefer a more formal or casual setting. Every room is filled with vibrant colors and beachy whites, reminiscent of the island's natural palette.

Sitting on over 25,000 sq. ft. of land, Lanikai Oceanside features an expansive yard space with warm tropical landscaping. The oceanfront yard offers a picturesque view of the turquoise blue waters dancing to the melody of the tides. Watch the kayakers go by as they paddle out to the Mokulua Islands daily.

Besides being steps to pristine Lanikai Beach, quaint Kailua town is a quick five minute drive for groceries, restaurants, and boutiques. Easy access to the John A. Burns freeway puts downtown Waikiki just 30 minutes away. At Lanikai Oceanside, located in the attractive Lanikai neighborhood of Kailua, Oahu, enjoy the sun drenched beach life Hawaii is known for.

House was very nice and relaxing. Views are awesome. Rooms comfortable and generally very nice/comfortable furniture. Not being on the Lanikai beach directly turned out to be good asset because of how quiet the house was most of the time. Some times the path next to the house had a few people hanging out but was only during the day. Being able to go swim easily with the water entry path next to the house was great. Kitchen was well appointed, stocked and we used it a lot.

This property was a perfect home away from home. It is better than described in the listing. It was very clean a maintained. The property management team was beyond helpful and prompt to respond to all needs. Minutes away from this beach front abode there is a variety of shops and eating spots. We would 100% stay again. We have recommended to others and would do again

This property was amazing! Breathtaking views, gorgeous sunrises, and serene atmosphere in a beautifully decorated home made this vacation the trip of a lifetime. The home is perfectly set up for a great trip, offering plenty of entertaining spaces and spots throughout the property to grab some quiet private time to yourself. The layout is spacious! Plenty to do right from the front door of this home...snorkeling offers colorful fish and hidden treasures to explore...hiking trails are accessible a few blocks away...kayaking to the small islands in front of this home is a fun trip! Shopping in town is a short ride away and offers plenty of restaurants, groceries, and fun shops! Amenities were as promised! WiFi works great, so you can still be accessible while getting away from life. The home provides everything you need to enjoy a vacation that is truly remarkable. I would most definitely recommend this property!

The house was everything we had hoped for and more! !! The finishings in the home were perfect and it was such a livable space inside and out! Very family-friendly vacation home right on the beach and the trip out to the islands was amazing! Close to everything, (hiking, shopping, etc.)- yet it was very private and quiet. Snorkeling was amazing, lots of turtles and a very cool old plane wreck off shore to explore kayaking/snorkeling!! We will be going back here for sure!!

I just returned from nearly a week at this incredible home. This was my 4th time staying in Lanikai, but my first time at this beach house - By far the best location yet. Very private with great access to the ocean for my morning swims. According to the owner, Donna, the house was just remodeled. That was very obvious - everything was new and top quality. The nice thing is they preserved the original classic Hawaiian feel with very open large rooms with lots of windows, sunlight and views. All new furniture and a awesome, modern and functional kitchen. (as you can see from the photos). The house could not have a better view of the Mokulua Islands from the living room. (great destination for a kayaking trip) This house would be a great location for large families. Plenty of parking and a very large lot. Lastly, Donna was very helpful recommending restaurants and other local attractions. Looking forward to next year! Worth mentioning: A couple things we didn't have in our last rental which this house had was: air-conditioning in every room and working Wifi Favorite spot for dinner - Buzz's Steakhouse - a must!

This property is an amazing experience for a family wanting to vacation in Lanikai. It is oceanfront so you can literally walk out your back door and into the ocean. There are big grassy areas to enjoy the outdoors. The house is well equipped. Perfect!

I love this house! It is the ideal Hawaiian beach home. It does not have a pool, however, you do not need it when the ocean is simply a few steps away from the backyard. I also love how much yard space you have for the children to run around or play in. With cozy and tasteful furnishings and priceless oceanfront views, the location and this home cannot be beat!

This property is absolutely amazing. The ocean views are breathtaking and the grounds are spacious. The home is beautifully, did I say beautifully decorated. This gorgeous home is quite spacious and packed with everything you need. We had a very memorable stay and just can't wait to return again.

Upon entering the property we were greeted by a feeling of tropical simplicitic zen. The foyer gave me the first glimpse of the comfort, elegant and stylish interior we would find. Each room looked like it was designed by better homes and garden. Exquisite taste throughout the home. Everything you need for a great vacation in one of Hawaiis premier locations. The final and probably most spectacular find was the view. The most stunning views of Lanikai Mokulehua Islands. So close you feel like you can touch them. Kayak to their shores in mere minutes. Kailua town is a good walk or 5 minute drive. Great food is just steps away at Buzz’s Steakhouse. This is the one I’ll return to as often as I can. Love it.

Can't say enough about this gorgeous home on Lanikai beach. The property has so much history . Once owned by the Royal Princess Kawananakoa as her summer get away -you will immediately understand why she chose this spot . Swimming out in front of the house is like a dream come true. The combination of clear turquoise waters and the opportunity to hike, surf, and swim, make it the perfect place for a relaxing vacation . It's also fun to see the sea turtles swim out front. You have a front row view of the Mokulua Islands .
