About Mackenzie Doka

I was raised in Newport Beach, California and our family always took vacations to Oahu and I fell in love with Lanikai. I owned and operated a mobile food delivery service and cafes serving businesses in Orange County and Los Angeles that fed a hundred thousand business people daily. In 1996, I was awarded Businesswoman of the Year for Orange County. That same year, I retired, sold my business, and made a life changing decision to move our family to Hawaii.

Mackenzie Doka purchased this house in 2002

Why Mackenzie Doka chose Lanikai

I came to Lanikai as a little girl and it was always my favorite area and beach on any island. As I was growing up, our family usually went to Hawaii for our summer vacations. This is how I discovered the then hidden gem known as Lanikai. It became my lifetime goal to build my dream estate and raise our four daughters in Lanikai. Now that they are all grown up and I have a lot of room, I am able to share the awesome beauty of Lanikai with the world. My guests come first. I make sure they see all the amazing things on Oahu and am there for them 24/7.

What makes this house unique

Convenient use of Lanikai Beach - rated #1 beach in the world. Also recently rated #1 family beach, with its powder-like white sand and calm, clean turquoise water.

Our plantation-style residence was built to look like the original Pioneer Inn in Lahaina, Maui. It is not a LA type home. We offer more amenities - kayaks, surfboards, boogie boards, beach chairs, beach mats, beach towels, coolers, 86-jet hot tub, dining gazebo, free wifi, etc. - than any other rental in Lanikai. There is a unique outdoor kitchen that is fully equipped with a burner gas barbecue. Ample parking is provided for all units.

Exactly what we needed!

  • 4 of 5

Lori was a wonderful host! The place was exactly what we expected .. there was everything we could ever need for our stay! Lots of fun water toys to enjoy at the beach! The Beach was only a block away so it was great that we could walk to it. We will definitely be staying here again on our next trip to Lanikai!

We had a wonderful stay in Lanikai. We have stayed here two other times and have been made welcome and treated like family each time. The unit was clean, pleasantly decorated, and quiet. The owner is very accommodating and helpful if you need advice on activities. The beach is a short walk and beautiful, especially sunrise. We had a great stay! Thanks!

Lori is wonderful and easy to work with!! She had plumbing issues with the units we was booked for and it couldn't be repaired before we arrived. Instead of what most would do in canceling our booking, she found us a place to stay around the corner from her. She gives you a list of recommendations for sight seeing, dining, shopping even her grocery savings card number. I highly recommend staying with Lori!! Thank you Lori for a wonderful stay! Will be back!

My husband and I stayed in Waikiki before but wanted to get the real Hawaiian experience. The rental was so clean and updated, with lists of things to do around the island, created my Lori, the owner. She is welcoming and helps with any questions we had. She has endless amounts of beach chairs, toys, kayaks, and an amazing outside kitchen we grilled on and sat in the hot tub. We already booked out stay for this coming October with friends in her 3 bedroom house. It's literally magical in Lanikai, and steps to the beach. I suggest this rental to anyone that has a family, or a romantic getaway! Beautiful and kept up very nice.

After stressing so much trying to find the right place to stay for the holidays because I wanted to find a place that was good for my two kids and also my husband with his parents I finally got to relax- thanks to this vacation rental. The unit itself is designed as a plantation style home. Steps to Lanikai Beach made it easy to wake up and go for a morning swim and then be back at the unit to make and host a nice breakfast for the family. I was amazed to see how much was offered in the kitchen to make it feel as if it were your own home. Also, the amenities are what really striked me about this home! kayaks and surfboards and so much more, the kids loved it! but my wallet loved it more. Other tourist we saw when we paddled out to the mokuluas rented boats for $100 for the day! ouch! Lori who is the owner opened up all of her toys for my family and I to use included with just a 2 week stay whenever we wanted. I usually do not write reviews on websites but after this trip I just felt is necessary to share with you all. The price is right, the home is great, and the genuine services Lori provided for my family are unforgettable. We will be back next year! no stress looking for a place this time because we already know where we will be returning.
