Walker's Lanikai Beach House:
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).
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.
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.
