Lanikai (heavenly sea in Hawaiian), a part of Kailua, is best known for its incredibly beautiful beaches, with views of the Mokulua Islands (commonly known as the Mokes). The Mokes are comprised of Moku Nui (Big island) and Moku Iki (little island). They are a popular kayaking and stand up paddling adventure, as the islands are only about a mile and a half off the shore. The ocean water in this area is some of the clearest you can find anywhere in the state, many people come from around the island just to enjoy the beach. There is a very special small town neighborhood friendly atmosphere that you cannot find very easily. The road in Lanikai is a large loop that everyone jogs and walks their dog on. Within the neighborhood is the Lanikai Pillbox hike, a local favorite that is very accessible to residents that provides breathtaking views of the Mokes.
The neighborhood has a distinct Hawaiian flavor, and not every property is a multimillion-dollar palace. Lanikai Beach has been fairly popular in recent years, especially on weekends, with visitors and residents converging to enjoy this beautiful length of sand. So, if a potential buyer wants to live in a more secluded, gated community, Lanikai is not the place to be. People don’t hide behind their walled-off houses and stay to themselves in this neighborhood. There are just too many exciting things happening in Lanikai for you not to want to be a part of it. Apart from the beach, there’s also Mid Pac Country Club, which offers a variety of activities, and Lanikai Park, which has a small playground, as well as pick-up basketball and soccer games. Lanikai has one nice surf point to the left of the Mokulua Islands, but the waters off the beach are typically quiet, making swimming, paddling, and kayaking more enjoyable.
Traffic and parking difficulties are being addressed, and a project is presently ongoing to convert the most crowded crossroads at Kalapawai Market into a roundabout. This will significantly improve traffic flow into and out of Kailua Beach Park and Lanikai. In addition, any three-day weekend (such as Veterans Day) in Lanikai now has no streetside parking restrictions. This has made a significant impact for all Lanikai inhabitants, since these unique long weekends are now uncrowded and relaxed, exactly as they were years before. However, because Lanikai is such a warm and enjoyable community, there will always be tourists.
Solana will do what it takes to sell your home and get you in to the house of your dreams. She went over and beyond to help us sell our townhouse AND helped us buy a beautiful home in Kapolei. Solana makes this whole process easy.
Solana has been a great asset to my home but I g and selling experience. She has integrity, knowledge and experience in this field. We are so grateful to have worked with her.
Working with Solana put all of my first time home buying worries at ease. She is thorough, communicative, honest and an extremely hard worker. She stayed in cadence with me every step of the way. I will definitely work with her again if/when I have the opportunity to invest in other properties.
Solana has been a wonderful help in renting out our home. It was our first time and she guided us through the paperwork and process. When we needed anything fixed she had great recommendations. Overall we are very happy with her and her team.
Solana is a great realtor. She was good at listening to what we wanted and was patient with us as we changed our minds, changed neighborhoods and back again. She was very responsive to all forms of communication; email, text, phone call, etc. We were still on the mainland when we started our home search and she sent listings and visited homes on our behalf before we even arrived back on Oahu. Her level of service, professionalism and integrity were top notch!! This was very important to us as the community in Hawaii is very small and everyone knows everyone.
I worked with Solana for several years while we searched for the perfect home. Solana was so patient throughout the process, always making time for us and keeping us up to date on the market. Once we became serious about purchasing a home, Solana always did her due diligence on identifying properties for us, really going above and beyond to cater to our needs. She helped our offer get accepted on a perfect home and couldn't have been more knowledgeable about the process, always answering all of my questions throughout the entire transaction. I highly recommend working with Solana and look forward to working with her again in the future!
I met Solana while looking to rent an apartment. She actually took the time to help me and was able to find a great loan program that allowed me to BUY! I'm spending less then how much I was willing to spend on a rental. Now that I have been here a year, I have gained equity. Best decision I have ever made! Thank you Solana!
To say that working with Solana was a pleasure would be an understatement. She not only went above and beyond along the process made us feel like we were the most important task for her. This was important to me being a single mom as Solana was determined to find a safe place for my daughter to call home. She bought my daughter a new bed because she knew we were sharing a bed. She also bought us things for the house and I cannot thank her enough for all she has done. Solana will always be my go to agent and now a true friend.
This letter is to express my complete satisfaction and appreciation to Solana Grover. The recent sale of my condo went very smoothly. He went over the contract with me until I was completely satisfied. I was so stressed moving out of the county and she did EVERYTHING. She even paid for my place to be painted, as she knew I was going through a hard time. I'm forever thankful, Solana you did it!
I have had the pleasure of working with Ms. Solana Grover during both the purchase and sale of my home here in Hawaii. As a Physician, I appreciate the value of hard work and dedication, and can attest that she will surpass your expectations. She is detail oriented, accommodating, trustworthy, and has years of experience behind her. If you are buying or selling your property, you want Solana on your side!
