Recent Laie reviews

  • 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!"

  • Another trip to Laie

    "We had a great time at this place. Everything we needed was there. Road noise was a bit much but got used to it. We love this beach and have stayed at another house here many years ago. This area of Oahu is really a well kept secret. We love the North Shore more than any other island. We have been to them all except Maui in recent years, we must get there too someday. It was our 34th anniversary, a group of really nice BYU students made a heart on the beach on Valentine's Day, we told them it was the day we got married 34 years ago, so they erased their words on the heart and put our names in place and took pictures for us. So sweet, good memory. We also had a young soccer team staying next to us, they were a great group of kids and adults. The kids were so much fun to watch in the water and the adults fished most of the time and let us on some secrets. We didn't catch anything but we learned how to fish Oahu off the beach. Give this place a try, you won't be disppointed."

  • Great value for money and does what it says on the tin!

    "Clean, good location, useful amenities and considerate owner. You can tell a lot of thought has gone into making your stay easy and comfortable. Best suitable only for singles or couples since it's pretty cosy being just one combined room for both living/sleeping with an adjacent kitchen and separate bathroom. Also bear in mind this bungalow is part of a subdivided, fenced property with one other much larger, two-level house immediately adjacent; both of which are located right off the main road. However, nonetheless you still feel relatively private being fenced off from the road with lots of surrounding mature trees, so we enjoyed a surprisingly peaceful, unobtrusive stay. The beach is OK; very quiet and attractive, but not the best for swimming, literally only a 2 min walk at end of your street whilst also being walking distance to shops and restaurants. Greg, the owner, is accommodating and leaves you to yourself. The standard is at a comparative guess around the equivalent of a good 3 star hotel on European standards, but given Hawaii is generally not cheap - very good value for money. It does what it says on the tin. If you're seeking spacious, high-end, secluded luxury right on the beach, this is not for you. If you want a functional, clean and practical pad to relax in without costing the earth, then this is a really good choice. The only helpful feedback I'd suggest is more comfortable seating and coverage from the rain on the decking, some more luxurious, quality bedding and towels as well as something providing a little more seclusion from the main house, but that's maybe being a little picky for what you pay...overall, congrats on the property, Greg, and thanks for having us!"

  • Wonderful, cozy cottage right on the beach

    "My two sons and I vacationed with previous reviewer (Ben's mom) and another girlfriend of ours -- so despite the small space we still found it clean, comfortable, and accommodating. It met our needs perfectly. As others have said, the cottage is a little weather-worn (rightfully so) -- but beds were comfortable, linens were clean and plenriful, and kitchen was perfectly stocked with necessary gear so we could whip up any meal. The private back yard was amazing -- and all ours! And the beach was fantastic. If I had a suggestion to make it would be to add better outdoor dining furniture and possibly lounge chairs. But I'm quibbling over those. The new property caretakers (Jarrod and Minerva) were so kind and helpful. There were a couple (minor) issues that needed attention (shower cold valve didn't work), but they responded quickly to fix it. And? They were just super nice, helpful, and willing to share their information about the area. I would definitely stay here again -- La'ie is right in the middle of the North Shore so lots of fun things to do within 20-30 minutes in either direction. Or you could stay at the home base and never regret it."
