Lanai Plantation Home
Set amongst Cook Island pines at an elevation of approximately 1600 feet, Lanai City enjoys a most wonderful climate. The township, known to locals as “the city,” sits in the middle of the Island of Lanai and is about 15 minutes drive to the north and south shores. A visit to Lanai will take you back in time to an old plantation town, complete with streets in alphabetical and numerical order. In many ways Lanai is reminiscent of days gone by in the islands.
This newly renovated plantation style home is extremely roomy and very comfortable with full amenities; from private attached baths decorated with Italian marble, to a well-equipped kitchen. There is a large veranda at the back of the property with mountain views and BBQ area. The front veranda is also very pleasant with sunset views in the evenings.
The Lanai Plantation Home is surrounded with mature gardens which are landscaped with an assortment of flowering plants and tropical fruits. Passionfruit, avocado, mango, banana, lemon, calamansi and papaya grow year round and are incorporated into breakfast when ripe and available.

- Nature Preserves - 15-30 minutes
The marine preserve at Hulopoe Beach, home to many tropical fish and pods of spinner dolphin, is a 15 minute drive. The entire island is like a national park. Visitors are allowed to go anywhere.
- Beaches - 15-60 minutes
- "Polihua Beach"- The most northerly beach on the island- wide open, very remote, private- great for nude sunbathing or a long walk down the beach. Local fishermen fish off the coast and when the north swell is up (wintertime mostly), surfing is possible for the most experienced watermen. It’s about an hour drive from Lanai City (4x4 only).
- "Naha Beach" is on the east side of the island and is great for spear fishing and lobster grabbing (any month that has an "R" in it, so January, February, March, April, September etc). Naha is also a good location for surfing with an easterly swell. This is a good spot for beginners as the wave is usually pretty forgiving.
- "Shipwreck Beach" is a north shore beach that is especially picturesque. This part of the coastline is great for beach combing, making "holoholo" (picnic/party), or just relaxing. A WW2 Liberty Ship, (one of two left standing in the world), sits on the reef about a mile out and gives this beach its name. This windswept coastline is great for beachcombers and often one can explore for miles without seeing a single person. Along the coast to the East, is the old ghost town of Keomuku, abandoned in 1901 when sugar was discontinued on the island. A visitor interested in Lanai’s past will enjoy the petroglyphs of Luahiwa, some of the best preserved rock drawings in all the islands. These drawings speak of both the artisan and the civilization represented, offering clues to a past that seems to linger on Lana'i.

- Kaunolu" -King Kamehamehas' summer fishing grounds is a site that offers a rare glimpse into ancient Hawaiian culture. An entire Hawaiian village (ruins) remains. The Bishop Museum has come in and marked the different sites as to where King Kamehameha had his personal lodging, where the canoe shed was, the area the people kept their food cool (in the river valley), the heiau (place of worship), where the general population lived, where the men fished from , etc. This is definitely a 4 wheel drive expedition. It takes about 45 minutess to get down there from town, and would take at least 2-3 hours to really explore the site. This is the site where the "International Cliff Diving Organization" held their final competition in 2000. The leap called "Kahekilis' Leap" is where Kamehamehas' men would prove themselves by leaping from 85' into 15' of water, just a couple feet from the coral shoreline.

For a mini safari, head out of town to "The Garden of the Gods" by 4X4. One travels through Ka'nepu'u, the native dry land forest of rare plants, then on to the many colored canyons of ‘the garden.” Here in the Garden of the Gods, the wind, sun, and sea have, through the eons, sculpted the most unusual earth formations. Keep your eyes open and you just might see a Lana'i mouflon, the big horn sheep that call Lanai home. This site is especially spectacular around sunset, casting a beautiful pink glow over the entire area.
