Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Cute, small 2 bedroom with 1 queen and 2 twin beds. Remodeled with new furniture. See photos for bedroom arrangement. Hawaiian flare with amenities of the main land. Your own secluded beach home. Your own entrance, parking and patio. Detached from the other 3 bedroom home on property. Watch the waves and enjoy the views from the surrounding covered porch.

Laie is the home to BYU and the world famous Polynesian Culture Center. The Polynesian Culture Center is within walking distance.

Great small town with restaurants, grocery stores all near by. Great patio for watching the waves. Sliding door allows open views and cool breezes. Enjoy the cool breezes, be aware there is no air conditioning.

****FYI, watch out for places just 3-5 miles south of us (Hauula, Punaluu) , there are TWO bad areas, not safe, drugs and property crime. We are in a safe area. Prices may be less, but the area is entirely different from LAIE. No major, busy highway to cross to get to the sandy beach. No property crime. Laie is VERY NICE. Access to stores, shops, and best of all SAFE , especially for children****

Experience truly spectacular mountain and ocean views as well as incredible sunsets. In only a few minutes you can be hiking in the beautiful Ko’o’lau Mountains or horseback riding along a pristine shoreline.

Entertainment is limitless with an ongoing concert series at Brigham Young University’s Hawaii campus to local bands at Turtle Bay. NO NOISE from concerts. The #1 tourist attraction in Hawaii, the Polynesian Cultural Center, which features spectacular entertaining shows, luaus, historical & cultural demonstrations & 'plenty shopping,' is only a short stroll down Kamehameha Hwy.

Across the street is the local shopping center which boasts a full-scale supermarket, a variety of fast food options, twin cinema’s, video rentals, post office and even a hardware store! The Mormon Temple is a wonderful five-minute walk up Hale La’a Boulevard and offers a free historical tour as well.

The Kahuku Public Course is only 5 minutes up Kamehameha Hwy. & for those more seasoned & serious in the game Turtle Bay Resort, home of the Senior PGA Tour, is just 10 minutes away. Famous Sunset Beach & Waimea Bay are only a few short minutes up the North Shore.

Beautiful Laie, located a gorgeous 40 minute to one hour scenic drive from Honolulu. Come live island style.

Enjoy the windy side of the island! Walk across the street to a 5 Star restaurant and many shops at the new Hukilau Market Place. You'll love the area and the spotless immaculate property.

About Beach Holdings 2005 LLC

Much to my surprise, I suffered a stroke 2 years ago. My son is now college age and I will be an empty nester. As a family, my son and I loved to come to Hawaii. Quality family time.

I am now retired and devote full time to helping others enjoy the many pleasures of Hawaii. We hope you can be our guest soon.

Beach Holdings 2005 LLC purchased this house in 2005

Why Beach Holdings 2005 LLC chose Laie

I love the ocean. The minute I walked through the patio doors and saw the views, I knew I had to have the property....

The views are awesome and the water is crystal blue. The house is located on the sand and not on the street!! Laie is a great town and home to BYU and the PCC!

****FYI, watch out for places just 3-5 miles south of us, there are TWO bad areas, not safe, drugs and property crime. We are in a safe area. Prices may be less, but the area is entirely different from LAIE. No major, busy highway to cross to get to the sandy beach. No property crime. Laie is VERY NICE. Access to stores, shops, and best of all SAFE , especially for children****

What makes this house unique

The beach is OUTFRONT....you can fall asleep to the ocean sounds. We are set back from the main highway and you do not get the traffic noise.

Walking across to the street to PCC and the best luau and show on the ENTIRE island...I know as I have been there several times.

You can walk to the university - BYU. Stroll to McDonalds for an ice cream cone of just sit and enjoy the beach.

Martha and Keld are the most wonderful hosts on the entire island. They have been in Hawaii for 28 years. If you are from Europe Keld would like to practice his Danish!

Fabulous retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time at this house. The beach was just steps away and the view was great. The house was clean and included all of the amenities needed to cook. Martha was a great hostess who answered any questions we had. The location was secluded enough that it was quiet, yet we were quickly able to get out and explore the island. The only drawback was that the stairs on our side of the property are used by the attached studio and an additional house (up to 7 guests) to the south of us. One afternoon the people in the house had many guests over and they traipsed back and forth across our lawn. Fortunately, this only happened once, but it does mean that your neighbors make or break the peaceful atmosphere. The owner, Victoria, likes to do exit interviews and said that this is not allowed in the contract and that Martha would have dealt with it if she'd known. Otherwise, we loved the place and would highly recommend it!

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first family trip to Oahu and we split the stay between Waikiki and the North Shore. Our stay on the North Shore was at this beautiful house in Laie which happens to be right across the street from the Polynesian Cultural Center which was extremely convenient. We will say that the house does need a bit more cleaning and some upgrades(extremely dirty top of the refrigerator- I'm the only one who noticed it because I'm 6'4, but it definitely needs some love & the sliding back door needs to be replaced as it doesn't lock), but the view, sounds of the waves crashing, sunrises, etc...outshined any negative by a mile. When we come back(which we will) this one will definitely be on our list as potential accommodations. Thank you for letting us stay here!

Beautiful, well maintained property. Amazing location!

  • 5 of 5

Loved our stay at bath tub beach! The location was so beautiful. It can be windy on this side of the island, but we managed to get a couple great days on the beach. So peaceful and private! Everything was exactly as advertised. I would stay there again!

Magnificent & Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

The photos do not do the property justice. The view is spectacular and the proximity of the beach was closer than I imagined. The private walkway down to the beach provided a perfect place for my family to spend time. The interior of the apartment was clean and modern and it was stocked with all the kitchen equipment and gear we needed. We ended up cancelling many of the things we wanted to do in Oahu just to spend more time at the property. The proximity of key tourist attractions, shops, and restaurants was incredible. We were able to walk to several incredible tourist attractions. In the area are many excellent food trucks. We were so delighted by our stay and I can't imagine going anywhere else next time we stay in Oahu. As we were driving around the island, I noticed several other properties and I couldn't help but compare them to this one. I didn't think anything I saw beat this location in terms of the spectacular view, proximity to the ocean and tourist areas and quiet relaxing atmosphere. We will be back.

Great place overall for a great price

  • 5 of 5

I’m giving it 5 stars not because it is a 5 star resort but because it was exactly what we wanted and needed for a great price. The location and small private beach were huge pluses. We would come back and recommend it to anyone looking for a quiet, simple place to stay.
