George & Sue Schneckenburger – Cuiahoga Falls, OH We made all of our arrangements on the Internet and only hoped – luck was surely with us this time. Our fist visit to Hawaii and how perfect it was. The garden studio has everything, so well equipped, we wanted for nothing. Our favorite thing was our own garden and table and chairs to eat our breakfast and have our wine. Waking up to the birds singing; Nini and Rick had all of the little details, live plants, dishes by the bed for jewelry, etc., all of the suggestions in the big white book, etc., etc., and so clean.
Thank you – we loved it! Thanks also for the muffins, juice, coffee and pineapple.
Laura & Mike Jackson – Roswell, GA Dear Nini & Rick, We love our little bungalow! I’ve always wanted to stay here in Laniklai and it was so much better than we had anticipated. You were both very gracious hosts. I hope it won’t be as may years as the last time it took us to come back! Mahalo nui loa-
Bruce & Jane Ingram – Lake Cowichan, BC Dear Nini & Rick, thank you again for another wonderful stay. Feeling rested, rejuvenated and ready for a busy year ahead. Again, may thanks for your kind hospitality.
John & Stacy Fujiwara – Denver, CO Dear Nini & Rick, We had another wonderful stay! Thank you so much for your hospitality! John and I love staying here and it is truly a home away from home for us.
Takashi & Rikako Shinonaga – Osaka, Japan (12/08 – 12/13/2014) Dear Nini & Rick, We had a wonderful vacation stay here in the studio, like a home relaxing and everything was beyond expectation! We are sure the experiences we had here cannot be available at any other place. And the beach! It was like being in a dream. We no know why people named the beach “Lanikai”. We sure will be back!
Mai Tmanakis – Sunnyvale, CA (11/19 – 11/23/2014) Dear Nini & Rick, The studio cottage was just perfect for my first visit here to Oahu. I feel blessed to have found it and grateful to you both for it truly felt like my home away from home! It’s exactly what I was looking for and so happy to know that this little gem exists here in Lanikai. I hope that I will certainly be able to come and visit again! I wish you may blessings and all my best always….
Jeff & Angie – San Diego, CA (11/02 – 11/08/2014) Dear Nini & Rick, We loved the “homey” atmosphere of your rental, and we appreciated that (you) Rick and Nini made yourselves easily accessible for any queries we had while on the island. The luscious garden on the side reminded me of my ancestral home where similar plants grew in abundance. We’ve enjoyed our vacation on Lanikai Beach; much more love the peace and quiet of this place. We hope to come back and will surely recommend your place to friends and family!
Chiari & Richard – Kamogawa, Japan (04/05 – 04/14/2012) Dear Nini & Rick, thank you so much for a lovely stay here. It was the most amazing time which we will never forget. We are so in love with this place we don’t want to leave! We hope to come back (next time with a little one) and look forward to seeing you both again. Thanks again for all you hospitality.
Brad & Lois – Olympia, WA (03/31 – 04/05/2012) Yes, you ordered just the right weather for us to kayak, snorkel, walk the beach and celebrate our 25th. This studio was perfect for us and the ridge-line hike this morning at sunrise capped a most pleasant stay. Rick & Nini, may you prosper for decades to come in your family home, extending hospitality to guests like us! Thanks so much,
Gary & Debbie Laudone – Towanda, PA (03/24 – 03/31/2012) Dear Rick & Nini, We’ve had a great stay. Thank you for the attention to details, the advice, and your worm hospitality. The hiking, the kayaking, the beach, the dining and the beauty of O’ahu were just great.
Debbie and I can say that we’ve met Hawaii just as we had hoped. Keep up your ambassadorship Rick! God Bless you!
Judy & Lee Pirani – Cambridge, MA (03/08 – 03/17/2012) We loved your garden studio! So clean and stocked with everything one could need. But more importantly was the peaceful quiet – waking up to the birdsong. I love your back yard and side gardens. Rick & Nini, you made us feel welcomed and we appreciated all you tips. This neighborhood and the nearby beaches are so beautiful. All-in-all a very relaxing time. We felt like we were in our own special world! See you again!
John & Sheri Howard – Fruit Cove, FL (02/23 – 03/06/2012) Rick & Nini, Thank you sooo much!! We had the best time here and we will be back! Though, next time we will bring guests so be ready to rent us upper and lower levels!! The only way we could describe this is that it was a perfect place for our honeymoon!! Mahalo! John & Sheri Howard
Terry & Lorie Miseck – Edmonton, Alberta, Canada (02/12 – 02/20/2012) Thank you for all the hospitality Rick and Nini. Is is a beautiful and calm area, we will be sure to tell our friends. Be sure to visit the Valley of the Temples and have some shrimp from a food truck. The Iolani Palace muse be seen. Thanks Again!
John & Stacey Fujiwara – New York, NY (12/23 – 01/03/2012) Your wonderful Garden Studio was such a special find for us. Being a local boy, it never occurred to me that staying right in Lanikai was even possible. Thank you for your opening a new world of experiences for us. Everything was great and your thought of every need we might have. We most certainly will be back. All the best to you and your family for a prosperous 2012! Aloha A Hui Hou
