Property Details

TA-043-470-0288-01 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 the 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 “boathouse”, 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, a kitchen, and a large “great room” with spacious accommodations for large gatherings. Steps away are the white soft sands of Lanikai Beach with access by way of public beach access one property to the south of the property. With a separate entry, the ‘guest cottage’ located off the entry courtyard features a queen-bedded room and a small parlor with a 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! 

This property is professionally managed and is licensed as a short-term vacation rental. Non-Conforming Use Permit Number 90/TVU-0042 and is compliant with Hawaii State Legislation (HB2078) for vacation rental accommodations,

We grew up In Kailua. This trip was a trip to bring my 91 year-old mother home and get family and friends together. We typically stay on Kalama beach, as this is where we lived. However, I wanted something with more of an Oceanview for my mother. Walker Estate was more than perfect! The main house is set up with three bedrooms and a more than beautifully living area. Then the Boathouse and The cottage was perfect. We had 9 people in our group and never once did we feel that there was not enough room or lack for anything. We are a family of Chefs and the kitchen was set up beautifully!!! Steven and Mitchell could not have been more welcoming! The bread pudding as a The welcome gift was out of this world...and did I say that we were a family of chefs? I would recommend this gem to anyone looking for the perfect Hawai’i getaway. We will be back!!!!!!! Mahalo Nui Loa

Elizabeth I recommends this vacation rental Our stay at Walker's Beach House was wonderful in every respect. Arriving late after a long journey with two exhausted toddlers, we were thrilled with the property and the yummy bread pudding awaiting us. Three generations could gather under one roof - and the various outdoor areas -- and yet have enough space for privacy and downtime. The thoughtful details, including top of the line toiletries and a Vitamix for our morning smoothies, were lovely surprises. Being adjacent to but not right on the sandy part of the beach meant there was no public access to the front of the house - quiet and private at all times. Just a short walk to the scenic Pillbox hike, and a short drive to shops and restaurants. With a generously stocked "beach room," there was no need to rent beach toys/boogie boards/coolers/chairs, etc. Thank you!

Our family had an amazing time. The location, with the beach in front and hiking behind, can't be beaten. We also loved the access to good food and coffee in town. Highly recommend.

The Walker House is the BEST! We woke up every morning to watch the incredible sunrise. It's a place to just sit, read a book, and take in the beauty outside the windows or take a walk on the beach. Thank you for being eco friendly by providing glass food containers. With ample dishes, we could fully load the dishwasher without running out of plates to use. My grandchildren enjoyed all the water-related toys you provided. I would love to stay there again sometime soon.

There were a number of 'wow' moments entering the property; the perfectly groomed lawn framed by the boathouse and the main house, the magnificent panoramic view of the ocean from the main lounge room, the layout of the boathouse... The home is pristine with modern appliances, spacious rooms and is at the same time elegant and cozy. With the beach at the doorstep, ample space, and nearby shops a walk away this is the perfect accomodation

John Walker's house was a beautiful home casually but tastefully decorated. The position directly on Lanikai the beach was superb. My husband and I celebrated our 50th anniversary there with our family of ten. We all had an amazing time

Our team was looking for a team-building getaway with our spouses too. We came across the Walker Lanikai Beach House and fell in love with the photos! We figured if the place was anything like the photos that we would have a great week away. The place did not disappoint! Getting to wake up to the Lanikai sunrise every morning was magical. Having the ability to walk outside the backyard and down onto the beach was incredible too! Our whole team was beaming from this week away. We hope to make this an annual trip moving forward. The Walker Team was also extremely accommodative, great hosts!

I've been staying in the house for 5 nights with 7 people including 2 kids. The place is facing the beach and can go into the ocean within 1 second from the rental manager; the beach is truly a paradise. The house is surrounded by a quiet neighborhood, so we could listen to the sound of the wave all day long. I definitely will choose this place next time we visit Oahu.

We were a large group of 15 people and we just finished the most wonderful 7 night stay at this spectacular home. The home is separated into 3 living quarters which was perfect for our group comprised of 3 families with young children. Every amenity you could think of is provided and it literally felt like home the moment that we arrived. We ate dinner every night with an ocean view and the kids napped on the lounge chairs during the day with the sound of the waves lulling them to sleep. Booking the property was so easy through Vickie - she's so responsive to all our questions and concerns. The managers Steven and Mitchell were always available to our every need - Steven even baked up the most incredible bread pudding upon our arrival! It really doesn't get much better than Walker's Lanikai Beach House!

We were looking for the best spot on Hawaii's best beach for 2 weeks of paradise with our extended family of 10 [ us plus our 2 kids and their 2 kids each]......Walker's in July was the answer! Our total experience was better than we could have ever imagined. The housing complex fits us perfectly. The Cottage and Boathouse were ideal for my son's family...boys 13 and 15. My daughter's family stayed comfortably w us on the other side of the big house...girls 5 and 7. The view from the living room is spectacular and beach access excellent. Laying out on the lawn chairs after dinner, view of the ocean, and stars are priceless. Great restaurants, golf, every conceivable beach activity, ATV riding, sailing, ziplining are all right around the corner. The houses have all the amenities and precious parking space....everything is up to date and nicely maintained. The setting is quite private. is pricey !!! ...but the value is there ....and "you can not take it with you"! Advice: Contract directly with PHH....we made the mistake of going thru VRBO ...a needless extra expense. The fond memories of those 2 weeks will be with us forever. It is the best!

Gorgeous spacious vacation home!!! Actually, it is a compound, with a three-bedroom, two-bath main house, and a boathouse and an additional cottage!! Perfectly suited for a large family vacation! The main house has a stunning view of the ocean!! It's like you are in the ocean!!! The outdoor patio has a 360-degree view of the ocean and beach! The beach is so calm! Probably one of the best beaches in Oahu! Perfectly suited for little kids and also snorkeling!! We had the time of our life at the Walker house!!! Highly recommend!!

The Walker house was wonderful. Beautifully decorated and cared for. I had the front bedroom and loved the sound of the waves at night. Everything we needed was there. A perfect spot to celebrate my 90th birthday with family. Wonderful memories. May be back for my 100th!

Our family of 9 spent a wonderful week during May 2018 at the Walker Lanikai Beach House for our 50th wedding anniversary. Stephen was there when we arrived to show us around and with a gift of his delicious dessert. The large open living room facing the ocean was a marvelous setting. We enjoyed breakfast Property condition and dinner meals as a family around the large dining table. The beach was just minutes away for wonderful swimming (especially for the grandchildren). Daily hike from the house up to the pillbox was also a highlight. Highly recommended - would love to return.

Amazingly beautiful view! Even on a rainy, windy day, we felt we were at the beach and enjoyed watching kiteboarders "fly" by. This was our second visit with our children and grandchildren and the 11 of us fit easily around the table and in the house/boathouse/cottage. The kitchen is fully stocked. Upgraded historic house. Steven answered any questions quickly and baked bread pudding for our arrival. Traveling to Hawaii is easier because so much is provided - beach toys, chairs, boogie boards, towels, umbrellas, games, shampoo, etc. Outdoor warm showers with lower and upper heads were great for the children and adults. Grassy yard wonderful for children's soccer games. Lounge chairs by water great for sunrise and relaxing. Easy walk to the beach where our grandson was baptized by a local pastor who also baptized another grandson on our first visit. The whole place is just fantastic and we hope to return to make even more memories for us and the children!

Deciding on a house for the family vacations is always a challenge The Walker filled our needs perfectly. Plenty of room for our family of 9 and the location is perfect. The house is a beautiful old craftsman with lots of character. It is meticulously maintained with little touches, like Astroturf where you want it most, and fully stocked. Good choice!

by David S from North Vancouver, BC recommends this vacation rental


This house is a 12 out of 10. Perfect location and a perfect historic house. Everything about our stay was perfect. Walking up to that view every morning, with a coffee...wow!!!! The perfect beach just steps away. The house is fully stocked with all the beach toys and towels. We were 4 adults and 2 kids and the main house was perfect for us. The cottage would be a great place for two adults and a child or even a nanny with the rest of the family in the main house. The property manager was available for whatever we needed, and that bread pudding he left for us...OMG!!!! We will definitely be back

We had the pleasure of staying at the Walker house for 7 days in January, 9 members of an extended family. Prearrival, all our questions were answered and plenty of information was passed along to us to get us ready. Steven and Mitchell were very accommodating, working with us arriving a little early. The house was immaculate on arrival, we were very pleased with the furniture, all the ambiance, the linens, and all the little extras. There was plenty of room with the great yard, main house, and boathouse for everyone to spread out. A small problem he had with a shower was taken care of quickly and with no inconvenience to us. Nothing beats the view from this wonderful house, it is a destination unto itself. We will have memories for a lifetime from staying at this wonderful property.
