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). His 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, and other areas, 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 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 family 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 sitting parlor with queen-bedded room and a small bonus room – ideal for extended family (sleeps up to 4). Another private entry leads to the boathouse which 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! Ideal for large families, multi-generational families and small weddings or events.
