Fantastic Family Reunion
"We had a fabulous time. This home was perfect for our family.
The location was great. We loved the open floor plan. It was great to walk out the patio doors for a jog on the beach, a swim and then an outdoor, private, warm or cold shower. There is a small knoll just out the back door where you can watch the sunrise and ocean waves.
There were plenty of games and books and toys for children. We never needed any towels. Plenty of beach and bath towels were provided.
Our favorite local dining spots were 7 Brothers for awesome burgers and Titas Grill for barbeque. The grilled banana bread at The Farm Cafe was amazing. Foodland for groceries was within walking distance.(Closed on Sundays)
Our girls went zip lining at Climb Works and enjoyed an unforgettable experience.
Our family of 7; 1 senior, 5 adults, 1 teenager and a baby all agreed Laie Beach Retreat should get 4 out of 5 stars.
Here are the reasons we didn't give it a 5.
1. The sliding doors on the beach side were very hard to operate.
2. Aside from the downstairs bedroom there is no privacy. We had 2 married couples in our family.
3. Everything in town closes on Sunday(Mormon temple is located here.)
4.Guests will need TP, laundry soap, consumable supplies such as paper towels, foil, plastic wrap, briquettes for BBQ.
5. Although the busy highway didn't bother us once we got inside, it was difficult to enter and exit the property due to the traffic. We scraped the front of our rental car more than once because of the steep incline.
We would come back and recommend it to our friends."

"My husband and I love this home on the beach. What a treat to have your own ocean front beach location for sunrise and relaxation. The home has everything you need for your stay. There is a Foodland and shopping center across the street for your needs. The AC in the bedroom was a welcomed addition during our stay due to rain and little winds. Thank you for sharing you home with us."

"This place has some of the most amazing and breath taking views. I had to take a picture every morning as the sun rose over the ocean. Our family stayed here for our summer vacation. When we arrived the manager showed us around the cottage, beach and helped us get familiar with places to eat and things to do around. They have this cool book they made and also a tour guide book which we took around the Island, this was helpful. The location was great. We wanted to be in a more secluded beach and this place was great. For the most part we had the beach to our self we also got to see some turtles in the water. The back yard was great, we had a BBQ and the kids got to run around and play. I love that the beach was right there, we would get in the water swim, go eat and come back for some more beach time. The view from our bed was amazing, waking up and seeing the ocean made it all worth it. As far as the kitchen goes they had everything we needed to cook for our family meals. That saved us some money, I do recommend that you go shopping at Costco or Sam's club, food is more expensive there. I would recommend this place, we are already planning our next trip here."

"Great place to stay for a couple of days. Loved hearing the waves crashing at night and waking up to it in the morning. There are shops (with a cinema) just down the road (walking distance, 10 - 15 minutes.) food trucks and other dining options a short drive away. Turtle Bay was about 15 minutes drive for those who want calmer swimming beaches. There was a basic kitchenette, with a single cooktop and microwave. The only downside was that some of the pots and pans hadn't been used for a while so the residue grease had made then sticky. Also, the only sink to wash everything was the bathroom sink, but with so many dining options nearby, you can just go out to eat every day. Overall, the location was great and MaryLou was fantastic to deal with."
