Welcome to the world of John Walker. A Scotsman who made his way to Hawaii as a young man in the 1870's to become a contractor of choice to Queen Liliuokalani, and erect such notable buildings as the Bishop Museum and Honolulu Hale (City Hall).
Mr. Walker's inviting presence is felt in the structure of this, his favorite hideaway on Lanikai Beach. Built in 1934, this enchanting environment transports you back to an era of graceful living, where the worries of the world are lost in the luxury of sea, sand and restful surroundings. Following recent renovations, the house contains just the right combination of added comforts in its updated kitchen, guest quarters and “boat house”, with elements of charm carefully preserved from a richly felt past.
One of the first homes to take advantage of Lanikai’s heavenly reef-protected waters and natural stretch of white sand beach, John Walker’s Beach House set the standard by which the surrounding community grew…a standard which has been nurtured by his family through the years for you to enjoy. Although only with us in spirit, John Walker’s love of Lanikai is preserved by one of his most revered places in the world.
The main house features 3 bedrooms, kitchen and large "great room" with spacious accommodations for large gatherings. Steps away is the white soft sands of Lanikai Beach with access to the water provided from the front lawn. With a separate entry, the 'guest cottage' located off the entry courtyard features a queen-bedded room and a small parlor with kitchenette (sleeps up to 4). Another private entry "boathouse" sits above the garage - complete with its own living room, kitchen, bathroom and lanai (sleeps 2-4). This is the classic Lanikai Beach House - for those looking for a casual, relaxing getaway on the shores of one of the worlds' best beaches!
Note: from February 1- Feb 28 each year, the "boathouse" will be occupied and unavailable to rental guests (separate unit).
