About the property

5 Bdrms + Convertible bed, 3.5 Bath, Sleeps 13 [One of 4 adjacent rental homes]

This Island style oceanfront house sits on a breathtaking, beautiful beach. It is clean, though it is an older, quaint home. It has 5-bedrooms, 3.5-bathrooms, and has everything you need for a Hawaiian vacation. This makes the house perfect for both families with children, and those seeking privacy, peace and quiet. The beach is almost always empty. If you are planning a wedding or event, please indicate the amount of guests that will be attending so we can give you a proper quote. 50 GUESTS MAX AT ALL EVENTS. (The venue fee is in addition to the nightly rental. REDUCED VENUE FEE for weekday weddings, ie. 50% OFF THE VENUE FEE - must arrive and check-out on a weekday with no weekend overlap). We have 2 adjacent homes, this one is in the middle, the others are new estates and rent for $1400 & $1600 / night + tax. If you have a big group we can offer you all 3 homes which sleeps 30+ people. Inquire within.

A large, open living room area features a sliding glass door overlooking the beach and ocean, a dining table for 8 people, cable TV and DVD, Internet access. The Kitchen features full-sized appliances, and is stocked with every tool you need to prepare simple to gourmet meals. Just bring the food and drink, or buy at the grocery store only 1/2 mile away. Some other features include an outdoor BBQ area and a built-in gas grill. There is a care-taker living on the adjacent property.

Please call to verify your reservation and we recommend you purchase a Carefree Rental Guaranty Policy, it is much cheaper than paying for repairs, particularly if you're hosting an event.

Activities and Attractions - Beachfront property on gentle Laie Bay (beautiful white sand beach in the Laie on the North Shore of Oahu). 1/2 mile to Tamura's Grocery store & Long's Drug Store, 1 mile to a small movie theater, a few restaurants and 1/2 mile to the Polynesian Cultural Center, 1/2 mile to Pounder's Restaurant. Local shopping includes the Laie shopping center (only 1 mile away). Laie shopping center has a grocery store, a hardware store, an automotive store, a flower shop, a laundromat, a movie theater, banks, a beauty parlor, and many others. The Polynesian Cultural Center has a marketplace with locally owned shops for souvenirs and gifts for friends and family back home, and a new Marriott hotel.

Laie is located on the Windward Coast of Oahu. This is the Hawaii you dream of, a scenic 50 minute drive from the Honolulu Airport. Located 1 hour from Waikiki Beach and Pearl Harbor. The North Shore offers snorkeling, swimming, diving, fishing, windsurfing and of course, world class surfing. It is much easier to drive to the North Shore surf spots from our location then from downtown Haleiwa or Waialua where you fight the ever present bumper to bumper traffic at Lani's beach due to turtle watching. Local sites such Pounder's Restaurant, the Polynesian Cultural Center, Brigham Young University are just a 5 minute drive. 15 minutes to Sunset Beach and Banzai Pipeline, and 20 minutes to Waimea Bay. We recommend a trip to Waimea Falls Park or an afternoon visiting the charming town of Haleiwa where you can go horseback riding, go on a glider-ride at Dillingham Airfield in Mokuleia, Haleiwa boutique shopping or sample the best shaved ice on the island.

We do not provide any infant bedding. You can rent cribs and highchairs from Paradise Baby Co.

Please call to verify your reservation and get our updated address as the recent subdivision changed our address. We recommend you purchase a Carefree Rental Guarentee Policy.

About James Davis

Living and loving life in Hawaii

James Davis purchased this house in 2007

Why James Davis chose Laie

Quiet, Rural Laie, on Oahu's north shore is one of the most beautiful locations in the world. Escape from the crowds of Honolulu and Waikiki and bask in the sun on our white sand beach, or cross the street and hike along a stream to a waterfall deep in the rainforest.

What makes this house unique

It is very relaxing. Lots of water activities, hiking, and outdoor amenities.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Hi Alison! Just wanted you to know that we had a great time at Mahakea. John Evans took good care of us, too! Thanks for renting us the property and hope it will be available next year! Mahalo, Sherri

Beautiful tropical property

  • 5 of 5

Lots of beautiful space inside and out, with the backyard connecting directly to a quiet beach. Caretaker was very helpful with the property and tips on surrounding area. Property Manager was responsive to concerns we had about a city crew working on the trees during our stay. Mahalo from our family!

Terrific Location and Amenities

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for a wedding we had nearby and it could not have been more "perfect". Being on the beach and the large property with all of the amenities is amazing. Originally we were going to rent many hotels down the street and other party members did, but this was so nice as we got to visit the whole three day weekend rather than just at meals or other. You won't be disappointed!

Perfect location close to Oistins and St. Lawrence Gap

  • 5 of 5

Shelsea is in a beautiful location with a very short walk to the beach. It has everything you would need, from cooking utensils, to board games and books, to the couple groceries that were left in the fridge for our arrival. I honestly couldn’t have asked for a better place for my family of 5 to stay during our vacation.

Wonderful beach for the kids. The house could use some upgrades.

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at the house with 9 adults and three children initially but two adults had to leave after the first day. With more than 7 adults or 8 who are in couples, we would have been uncomfortable, because there is no extra space and no way to bed down in the common room if not everyone goes to bed and gets up at the same time. There are no chests of drawers or stands for suitcases and not even an intelligent way to hang clothes. The kitchen has lots of dishes and glasses but no vegetable peeler. The toaster holds only two small pièces of bread and won't do a second set of toasts if it's still hot. The refrigerator must be badly sealed because it literally rained water Inside and there was always water on the floor. A few dish towels would also have been appreciated. The hot water heater broke one night but Dusty did fix it quickly. Also the house was clean and well stocked with towels, beach towels, toilet paper, etc. We greatly enjoyed being in Laie, far away from the artificiality and over-crowding of Waikiki. There is lots to do on the North coast, if you are young and energetic. I adored the botanical garden at Waimea.

Beautiful and quiet

  • 5 of 5

House layout was perfect! Very spacious and clean. Every room was quiet. Every room except for one has an ocean view. The property is simply gorgeous with easy beach access from the backyard. Dusty the property keeper is wonderful and very attentive if you have questions or need assistance.
