About the property

Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Beautiful Lanikai studio with stunning ocean view offers the perfect getaway for a single or couple. Ideal for Military personnel transferring to or from O'ahu who need a month or several months rental. Just a ten minute walk to either Lanikai or Kailua Beach, both consistently ranked as two of the world's top beaches. Enjoy teak and oak furnishings, and artwork by owner/artist. Relax on either the large shared lanai or your own private deck overlooking the Pacific and Mokulua Islands. Sunrises are many times absolutely spectacular with West Maui Mountain and Molokai in the distance, as well as the moon rises over the Mokuluas, lighting up the ocean. In winter months, the migrating humpback whales can be seen beyond the reef.

About Noni

Recently retired Kailua High school art teacher, professional artist and fitness instructor, Noni was raised in Kailua, and continues to maintain her family home in Lanikai.

Why Noni chose Lanikai

You can't beat the view from this hillside studio, sitting on your own deck. The location is perfect for walking to either Kailua or Lanikai beach, walking to Buzz's or Kalapawai Market, and hiking up the Lanikai Trail.

What makes this studio unique

The location is such that you can just park your car and walk to the beach, the trail, through the park to Buzz's and Kalapawai Market. It is also located equal distant to Kailua and Lanikai Beach.

Quiet in paradise

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time @ Noni's place. All that was promised is true; great views from the lanai, walking distance to the beach; a very comfortable bed, and we really appreciated having use of the paddle boards and kayak. Noni is very knowledgeable of the area, and was most helpful with any questions. We heartily recommend.

Magical location!

  • 5 of 5

Cannot speak highly enough about this perfect studio apartment. The view is simply magical, even better than the pictures suggest. Noni is a wonderful host who makes you instantly feel welcome. The studio is private and spacious with one of the most comfortable beds I have ever slept on. The place is well stocked with everything you could possibly think of or need. Lanikai beach is less than 5 min walk away, which is sensational in its own right. Buzz's Restaurant is also less than 10 min walk and is a must! The trade winds lightly blowing through the window really accentuate the tropical experience and overall relaxing atmosphere of the studio. If you are looking for the perfect Hawaiian getaway, this it it.

Great couples getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Puna Floyd, a cozy studio with the most comfortable bed and the greatest view in Lanikai. Our Host, Noni, was both gracious and accommodating. Parking was ample, and we were within an easy walk or drive from Lanikai And Kailua beaches.

You don't need your beach stuff because she has most of the essentials there. While we were there her niece Allison was staying with Noni, and she is a wonderful massage therapist. What more can I say? If there is any way possible we will be back!

Perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

It is hard to put into words how stunning the ocean view is from this studio. We arrived after dark and were enthralled with the studio itself, but when we opened the door to the patio in the morning, the view of the ocean simply took our breath away.

Everything about our stay in the studio (including our host, Noni) was perfect--so perfect, that we abandoned many of our plans in favor of spending most of our time enjoying the studio and patio or walking to the two gorgeous beaches which were just down the road from the studio.

February in Hawaii is beautiful, but even more beautiful with a view from the Lanikai Studio.

Really loved the location of the studio and was a perfect fit for my son and myself.

  • 5 of 5

My favorite feature about the studio was location and walking distance to the beaches and the beautiful sunrise from the lanai.
