  • This is Paradise!

    "We recently returned from our annual paradise-seeking retreat to Laie and the North Shore. Sue and Dale offer their Aloha spirit and make you feel like you’re Ohana. We always feel welcome and enjoy being a part of their community. They are the best. Sue and Dale’s vacation rental is a perfect getaway with a million dollar (second story) view – indeed a breath-taking panoramic paradise overlooking Hukilau Bay, Goat Island and the north side of Laie Point (spotted whales on occasion). The area also offers endless possibilities for exploration and discovery. The two bedroom unit is spacious, has a large functional kitchen, panoramic entry and a comfortable sitting area. It’s a great value, very clean and is well maintained. The beach is just steps away; the calming sound of the ocean is guaranteed to offer a restful night. A morning walk on the beach to watch the sunrise is an unforgettable way to start your day in paradise. Laie’s location is convenient to several famous North Shore attractions; Polynesian Cultural Center, Laie LDS Temple. 10min to Turtle Bay Resort and golf courses - 20min to Sunset, Pipeline, Waimea Bay, 30min to Hale’iwa, 45min to Windward beaches and attractions and 1hr to HNL airport. Our favorite places to eat in the area include Kahuku Grill (Kahuku), Seven Brothers Backyard Burgers (Laie), Papa Ole’s Kitchen (Hau’ula), Matsumoto’s Shave Ice and Grass Skirt Grill (Hale’iwa), Seven Brothers Food Truck, The Elephant Truck/Beach Thai Food and Ted’s Bakery (Sunset area). Ted’s Bakery malasadas are worth the drive; arrive early in the morning before they’re all gone. Nearby amenities at Laie Shopping Center include, Foodland, Subway, Taco Bell, Laie Palms Cinemas - a cool retro movie theater, bank/ATM, Post Office, Pizza Hut and ACE hardware store. Long’s Drug, North Shore Tacos, Dominoes Pizza in Hau’ula shopping center and Turtle Bay Resort are also nearby. Being repeat visitors to Laie, we’ve had the opportunity to meet many wonderful people and have renewed old acquaintances. There’s no question - we will return again and again. If you’re looking for a quiet, relaxing place to enjoy paradise – stay away from the mayhem of Waikiki, this is the place for you!"

  • So close to a beautiful beach!

    "We really enjoyed our stay at this home. It was easy to find and it was within walking distance of a grocery store, a restaurant and a fresh fruit stand. But, the location near the beach is what made it really special! We walked to the beach everyday and sometimes took multiple trips. The walk was very short and safe enough that I let the kids walk to the beach together whenever they wanted (ages 12 to 16 years old). We beach combed, snorkeled, swam, watched a sunrise, made sand castles, boogie boarded and even took a family picture near an outcropping of rocks down the beach. It was beautiful. This was really one of the highlights to our entire trip! The home was a nice place to stay. The kitchen was spacious enough for all of us to help out with preparing meals. The kitchen was where we spent the most time in the house. We fixed nearly all our meals in this kitchen and it worked out really well. We were able to find most of the utensils for cooking that we needed. I brought my own spices from home and I was glad that I did because the humidity had not been kind to the existing spices. There were a few basic pantry items and refrigerator items that where helpful. The two bedrooms and single bathroom were spacious. There was enough storage area to unpack our things. There were lots of towels for us to use, which was very handy. Our boys were able to spread out in the living area on the futons and we even utilized an air mattress from the closet so that no one had to share a bed. It made it much more comfortable. We enjoyed using the outdoor space. The yard was nice and the kids had fun feeding the fish in the pond and we were able to set out our beach things to dry. We used the boogie boards a lot. We did use the outdoor shower as well. There were a few quirks, such as the lighting in the bathroom (we couldn't see our face well for grooming because of the backlighting), the home took a day to air out, the fence door that we used to get to the beach was not on the hinge and a few other minor things. None of the drawbacks were enough to keep us from staying here again. The positive aspects to this home outweighed any negatives and it was a great value. I'm so glad that we got to stay here for our vacation. We would love to stay here again."

  • AMAZING experience for a family retreat.

    "Our family is local and resides in different areas throughout the island of Oahu. Our brother and his family came to visit from Texas so we decided to search for a vacation home that would fit us all where we could come together and enjoy a fews days. This beach house fulfilled more than what we imagined. Tania was AMAZING! She definitely went out of her way to accomodate us in every way. During our stay, she continued to make sure we were well satisfied. The caretaker was always so quick if we needed any attention and yet stayed completely out of site otherwise. We've been to many beaches around the state and the bay that Hale Kekela sits in is by far one of the best. Very clean and safe for all the keiki's. The best part...traffic free. We were practically the only ones on the beach most of our duration there. Anyway, the property fit our whole extended family with no issues. We have already been planning our next visit to Hale Kekela and will definitely offer high recommendations to our friends. Mahalo Nui Loa Tania for being so sweet to us and providing us with such a memorable week that we all will hold close to our hearts."

  • Wonderful Family Accomodations & Ideal Location

    "We stayed the at Hukilau Beachfront House + one of the cottages with our group (7 adults, 4 yo, 2 <2yo + infant). We actually could have all stayed at just the house, but with an infant, decided to split out the one family so as not to disturb everyone if the baby was fussy, etc and it worked out beautifully. There was plenty of room for everyone to be together at meal times and spend evenings in, etc. The house is very well stocked with everything we needed bedding (even 2 pak'n'plays!) and kitchen-wise, including books and games for all ages, lots of beach toys, chairs and boogie boards, beach towels, private heated outdoor shower, etc. We loved how the house was situated- there is a nice back deck and yard with a little raised hill where a short sandy path though the beach grass leads back down to a perfect family beach. This worked out great to help keep the little ones safely corralled in and give some privacy from other beach goers, although we had wonderful ocean views. We had rented 2 mini vans and there was plenty of parking out front within the fenced and gated yard. Pam was wonderful to work with. Did I tell you we loved this place?"
