Property description

Very desirable oceanfront property located in quiet Lai'e directly across from the Polynesian Cultural Center. This single family 1800 square ft. home was totally remodeled in 2009 and is maintained to owners' standards. New central air conditioning, stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, travertine floors, plantation shutters, Wi-fi high-speed internet, new outdoor grill, microwave, two plasma TVs with cable, washer and dryer.

Large fenced yard allows for a quiet setting away from all highway noise. The back of the house faces east and rewards the early riser with spectacular sunrises. From our lanai you may spot sea turtles or a monk seal in the summer and whales in the winter. New steps installed in October 2014 allow for easy access. This private reef-protected beach makes for a uniquely Hawaiian experience. Swimming is safe right in front of our house regardless of the season. The "bathtub" area is perfect for kids of all ages.

The home has two bedrooms and two full baths, a large living room with well-appointed furnishings, and a dining table which seats six. There are two day beds. Beach towels, boogie boards, and some beach toys are included. There are many public beaches located nearby if you want the bigger waves.

La'ie is a quiet country town but so convenient to Foodland, Long's, a clean and friendly shopping center, and the famous local food trucks. The Polynesian Cultural Center is one of Oahu's favorite tourist stops made famous by its fabulous luaus and evening shows. The new Hukilau Marketplace and Pounder's Restaurant are great fun too. We are located just 10 minutes from Turtle Bay Resort and a 20-minute drive to Kualoa Ranch.

Car: Necessary

The Polynesian Cultural Center with its new Hukilau Marketplace is located directly across the street from us. There you can enjoy an authentic day-long Polynesian adventure capped off with their famous luau and evening show. Kualoa Ranch, a 20 minute drive from here, is a great place to tour the movie locations from Lost and Jurassic Park, as well as enjoy a horseback or catamaran ride. Turtle Bay Resort is a 10-minute drive. We love to eat on the beach at Ola's Restaurant. Turtle Bay also boasts world class golf available at the resort. The North Shore has many shrimp trucks which are fun to try. Be sure to visit Kahuku Farms for simple farm to table freshness and a tour of their farmland. Of course winter brings the gigantic waves to areas outside Bathtub Beach. You can drive to watch the professional surfers near Waimea Bay, Sunset Beach and Bonzai Pipeline. No trip to the North Shore is complete without a stop in historic Hale'iwa. You can always take the one-hour drive to Waikiki, but honestly, why would leave this place when you have your own paradise right here at Bathtub Beach?

 

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2008

About: My husband I have lived in Alaska for the past 34 years. Business, and the desire for warm weather, brought us to Oahu 17 years ago. Since we first arrived we have met so many wonderful people who welcomed us with the true spirit of Aloha. After years of living part-time in Hononlulu we purchased this home in 2008 because of its gorgeous setting on the tranquil waters of Bathtub Beach. We still visit our island home throughout the year and always leave with a renewed sense of peace.

Why Laie:
As owners and frequent visitors to this beach house, we maintain it as if it were our own home. Once you enter the gate you are in your own private paradise. You will find this well-maintained island home a perfect spot for your Hawaii vacation.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We fell in love with the beauty and tranquility of Bathtub Beach. The reef-protected beach makes for a uniquely Hawaiian experience. Swimming is safe right in front of our home regardless of the season. The home required extensive remodeling which was completed in 2009. We love staying in quiet La'ie during our frequent visits to Oahu. We are continually awed by the view as we walk in the private gate and are transported away from all worries. This is how we believe your vacation should be too. La'ie is a quiet and safe place in which to visit. The local Foodland (closed on Sunday's) is clean and friendly. Tamura's Market and Long's Drugstore in Hau'ula are so close too. Tamura's has a great selection of wine and spirits.
