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."

"We had a group of 11 adults for our stay. I did a search for a perfect place and this sure was perfect. The lay out was very open and welcoming. We enjoy hanging out in the kitchen area and the lanai very much. We all love to eat and sipping our cocktails at the lanai every morning and enjoy that beautiful ocean view. What a refreshing way to start out the day. The rooms were very spacious and beds were comfortable. The location was just about 5 min walk to the beach and as well as to foodland. We also visited a Japanese temple, we hike the laie falls, try out the food trucks, and the shave ice stop.
Laura was very easy to communicated with. The whole process with checking in and checking out was easy. The house was very clean. I would definitely booked this place again if I ever come back with my family. Thank you for sharing your home with us!"

"We had an absolutely fantastic stay in this Laie Palms house. We rented it for two weeks and stayed on the second floor - the 3BR/2BA area. It was very clean and everything that was needed for a comfortable stay was there. The one thing we did not expect and that was not mentioned in any of the reviews was the wind. It was rather strong and every time that we climbed the stairs to the second floor we immediately felt it. But actually it was very nice and very refreshing especially when we were returning from the other beaches where it felt very hot.
We started every morning with a walk along the people-free beach (well, sometimes you can see a person or two or even four on a weekend) and then swam in front of the house before the breakfast. The ocean was all ours, nobody else to share it with. Actually one can spend the whole day in front of the house just seating on the beach and swimming (it is possible to snorkel there two, but there were just a couple or two of different fish).
The location of the house is really fantastic. First, it is right on the beach. Second - it is very close to a lot of excellent snorkeling places (Turtle bay, Shark cove and Three tables - are all perfect places for snorkeling. They are free and there are tons of different exotic fish. I even swam with a couple of turtles there). Third, it is very close to supermarkets (Foodland and Tamura's). Fourth, there are a lot of good places to eat if one does not want to cook and if one wants to cook fresh fish is available every Thursday opposite the Foodland in Waimea.
Just a couple more things about the owner. Janet was very accommodating while we were arranging our stay with different people coming at different time. And when at the end of the stay there was an issue with a power interruption she helped to handle it in an extremely gracious way.
Janet, thank you very much for your house and for everything else! it was a great stay and we unquestionably recommend the place to everyone who wants to have a great vacation on Oahu."

"My siblings and I wanted to make our Hawaii trip perfect as we celebrated our Mom's birthday and this house did not disappoint. The cleanliness of this house was impeccable and stocked with everything we needed to make ourselves at home. Having a washer and dryer to provide clean towels and clothing for the next day at the beach and for packing clean clothes for the return trip was a luxury. Plenty of bedrooms, bathrooms and space for 9 adults to get comfortable. The location will have us returning in the future as it is close to some of the best beaches that are normally frequented by the locals. Within walking distance of the Hukilau Cafe, Hukilau Beach, Temple Beach and the Laie Temple. It was wonderful walking around the area taking in the scenery and feeling like a local, so calming and refreshing."
