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!

Low key/quiet/safe/close to private beach. Away from city crowds and noise

  • 3 of 5

This is good property to stay in if you want 15 min walk or short drive to private beach area that is not too crowded with all the tourists. Nearby town is small but it has everything you need. If you plan to visit a lot of the tourist landmarks, don't stay here. Everything is about 40 min to 1 hr drive from here so I would not stay in this area, stay close to Honolulu somewhere. I did not like few things at this place but that may be different for you. Here are some Pros and Cons, this is my honest opinion to help the next person booking a trip to Oahu.

Pros:

- The property owner, Lori, is very helpful and she is a great host. She will help you in any way possible and she has beach toys available for use.

- Lori is available 24/7, you can just walk up the stairs and knock on her door for help.

- This property is in gated area so I felt very safe.

- 5 people can sleep very comfortably.

- Beach is walking distance but you cannot see the ocean/beach from this property.

Cons:

- Not much privacy here, patio/yard/Jacuzzi area is in the front yard of the property owner. If I had known that, I would not have stayed here. For some reason I thought the yard was private area so maybe I needed to look carefully, lesson learned for next time.

-One of the AC units is in the bathroom so you have to keep the door open to get cold air in the room. All the bathroom smell, goes in the room. If someone is using the bathroom, no cold air in the room. when it's 90 deg outside, room gets hot quick.

-Too many bugs and critters at night, my family did not sit outside because they were afraid of all the bugs. That ruined the whole family experience of hanging out outside.

-BIG reason for picking this place was the Jacuzzi but it was broken so we never got to use it. We should be given some discount but I don't think that will happen.

-TV did not work, something wrong with Cable signal, if you want TV, be sure it works

-The owners told us multiple times to turn the AC off, when we go out, but we do not like to come home to HOT room. It's 90 deg outside, it takes 2 hrs to cool down the place. We are on vacation, need to be comfortable not have someone remind us about turning off AC all the time. I keep my AC on all the time at home too. With our rent, we paid for the electricity too so we should be able to use the AC as we wish, I felt like they kept watching us all the time. This is why I will never stay at a property where owners are living on the same property

We found new family !

  • 5 of 5

We arrived in Lanikai not for vacation but to look for house and school for our kids. We stayed with Lori for 10 days and this was best decision we could have made.

Her hospitality and willingness to help us find out as much about the area as possible was like talking to your own mom. We loved the accommodations as well. when home, Kids spend most of their time in the hot tub and had great time. We used kayaks and toys provided by Lori, she was fantastic for our kids and made us feel like visiting family rather than renting VRBO. Her outdoor kitchen had everything you could ask for and we used it to cook. Her house is located just 5 min walk from one of the most beautiful beaches. There is a 2 mile loop around the Lanikai community that you can run every morning if you like to run. Our kids called her auntie Lori after 3 days being there. This is one of the best places to stay in this area. We will definitely recommend her rental to anyone who is looking to spend time in Lanikai.

Lanikai

  • 5 of 5

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!
