Laie house description

Very desirable oceanfront property located in quiet Laie directly across from the Polynesian Cultural Center. Totally remodeled in 2009 and continually maintained to owners' standards. Stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, travertine floors, central AC, plantation shutters, high-speed internet, outdoor grill, microwave, two plasma TVs with cable, washer and dryer. Large fenced yard allows for a quiet setting away from all highway noise. Back of the house faces east and rewards the early riser with spectacular sunrises. New steps installed in October 2014 allow for easy access while entering your private reef-protected ocean. The 'bathtub' area is safe and fun 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.

          Car: Necessary

          The Polynesian Cultural Center 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 surfiers near Sunset Beach and 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?

          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 home required extensive remodeling which was completed in 2009. We love staying in quiet Laie during our frequent visits to Oahu. We are continually awed by the view as we walk in the front door and are transported away from all worries. This is how we believe your vacation should be too. Laie is a safe place in which to visit. The local Foodland (closed on Sunday's) is clean and friendly.
