Overview

About the property

Close To Beach Access, Shopping And Theater.

Located just 1/4 mile from the Polynesian Cultural Center,this lovely 2 bedroom condo has a new, modern kitchenette with quartz counter top, glass back splash and new wood flooring. It is complete with full size refrigerator, microwave, counter top convection oven, and 2 burner cook top. The kitchen is well stocked with pots and pans, dishes and utensils for all your cooking needs.

Each bedroom has a queen bed and flat screen TV on the wall. The living space has comfortable island seating for 4, and dining on the covered lanai.

The bathroom is modern with shower over tub, custom marble tub surround and Travertine floors. Granite counter top on the vanity.

At the bottom of the stairs is a Weber BBQ for cooking the perfect meal at the end of the day. Designed to comfortably meet the needs of a party of 4, this unit is decorated in soft blue and cream for a sophisticated beach condo. Can accommodate 5 with a fold out futon cushion. Pac-n-play available upon request.

Just across the street and one house down is the beach access to Clistles Beach, some call it Bikini Beach. This is a long sandy beach with deep blue ocean, and rolling waves. In low tide you can walk along the shelf of the peninsula to explore the tide pools and catch soft shell crabs. Walking down the beach a few yards is an open channel with a nice little swimming area for the children and those not so confident in the ocean. The channel is a clear path through the reef for kayaks and small water craft, snorkelers, and serious swimmers. This is a great beach for learning stand up paddling. Boards can be rented at the rental shop on Kamehameha Hwy going north by the bridge.

Laie is a small town, with lots of Polynesian Charm! The famous Hukilau Cafe, featured in a few films, is in the midst of the village and is a great way to start your morning. Serving breakfast and lunch, they are a favorite of the locals and visitors as well. Laie shopping center is in walking distance and features a 2 screen movie theater, grocery store, several fast food restaurants, and a massage parlor for relaxation after a long day surfing the waves.

Laie is also home to the Brigham Young University Hawaii Campus of 2600 students, and the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints Temple. Free Tours are given of the visitors center daily.

The Turtle Bay resort is just 10 minutes up the road and features a world class, beach front golf coarse, tennis, and marvelous restaurants.

Gunstock Ranch is about 1 1/4 miles north and offers horse back riding up in the Koolau Mountains.

Laie is a great place to start your day and rest your head on your pillow at the end of a day filled with adventure!

About Marci Paddock

Marci devotes her time to managing her own properties and playing with her grandchildren. The family moved to Hawaii in 2002 and purchased this property after spending a few years getting know what a special place Laie is. This property is the family home, but with all the children now grown and married, this apartment was built upstairs to provide others the opportunity to come to Hawaii and fall in love with Laie as we have done.

Marci Paddock purchased this condo in 2005

Why Marci Paddock chose Laie

Laie Point has a beautiful natural park at the end of the street where people come to see the sun rise. Fishermen come toward evening and fish in the deep ocean off the rocks at the end of the point. The view is spectacular and has been the location for several movies over the years that we have been here.

What makes this condo unique

Laie Point is about 30 feet above sea level and has a stair case going down to the beach just across the street from the property. During low tide you can walk along the edge of the peninsula and enjoy the tide pools filled with small fish and crabs. In the evening the beach is covered with small crabs that you can catch and cook up a delicious meal of soft shell crabs! Star gazing from your lanai is magical. On a clear night you can see all the constellations and try to remember all that Greek mythology you learned in High School. Shooting stars are very common!

Awesome location for relaxing

  • 5 of 5

A clean, updated place at a reasonable price with an ocean view! There’s no night life in the area but if you want to “get away from it all” this is the perfect place for you. Marci was a great host and we had all the amenities we needed.

Owner's Response: We loved hosting Sara. She was so polite and thoughtful. They really maximized their time here, spending most of their time out enjoying the beauty of the island, and all the activities in the area. We would love to host them again. Marci

Great location & price for budget travelers

  • 5 of 5

Description of the rental is very accurate. Wonderful location, and the 2-bedroom space feels spacious and comfortable for smaller families or a few friends. It's great for folks who expect to be "out and about" during most of the stay.

For those of you who require AC or tend to run warm, I recommend you consider other options. Even with some of the trade winds that came back at the end of our stay, the space runs very warm, even with fans and windows ventilating the air. This place would really be a hidden gem if the owners considered re-structuring the space to contain at least one smaller AC unit. It'd go a long way!

Comfy and totally enough space!

  • 5 of 5

We are totally "North Shore"-rs - relax, chill, quiet, and calm. I highly recommend it, especially for someone that likes our kind of vacation!

We traveled with our 10 month old who stayed in the room just next to ours - having an affordable 2 bedroom option was a must! Beach access was across the street and 2 lots down, then down about 30 stairs - hardly anybody there. You can see some ocean from the patio just outside the front door. And don't miss the amazing sea spectacle each morning - head straight down the road (walk left) about 10 houses and there's a rock area with crashing waves to view - really beautiful.

Grocery shopping is within a mile, great food in the shopping center, and a handful of food trucks within 3 miles...you've gotta try the food trucks and grilled/seasoned corn. Totally worth the money!

Mahalo, Marci, for the great stay.

Owner's Response: Matthew is right, the view at the end of the street is spectacular! Every morning there will be a hand full of people enjoying the sun rise and the waves crashing against the rocks and small islands just off shore. A great picture moment! Marci

Very cute condo, very up to date. In a great location and beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

Very clean. Up to date. It was just the two of us but could handle 4 people easily. Great location we could assess anything we wanted. It does not have air conditioning but we were always gone during the day. It was cool in the evenings and cooled down more at night. We came for a wonderful celebration of my moms wedding. Marci was easy to work with. Would stay here again.

Fantastic value and a terrific location

  • 5 of 5

It’s a two bedroom suite above the garage. It has a living room with a kitchenette area as well. Te Place was well stocked with towels, blankets, an extra fan, ironing board and iron, etc. Also had a dedicated parking spot.

I went in September and it was a little warm during the day, but the nights were perfect with the windows open (they all have screens, though there seem to be few bugs in Hawaii).

The owners live downstairs, and were extremely quick to resolve any issues.

Maybe 90 seconds at most walking distance to a gorgeous ocean area. It’s not a sandy beach, but an interesting lava rock type area. The view is stunning and you can easily chill there for hours just taking it all in.

The location is excellent. There is a grocery store, a few food places and a terrific ice cream/smoothie shop walking distance the other way from the ocean (maybe 5-7 minute walk). Beaches line the main highway on the east side, and we stayed for a week and rarely saw a full beach. It was amazing.

Overall, you should totally stay here. It was well worth it, and it’s k ie to be on the quieter side of the island where it is just as beautiful. Plus the road there from Honolulu is stunning.

Owner's Response: We have lived on this property for about 12 years now and can't think of any place we would rather be. The sound of the ocean, the stars at night, and the fabulous sunrises are just so spectacular!

Great place!

  • 4 of 5

Nice, clean, safe place. Great location on North shore. Very kind owner. Close to BYU-H, PPC, and temple. Used their boogy boatds all week. Keep in mind August can be hot. The nights were fine with open windows, but the days were hot even with a fan going. I would still stay here again.

The world famous Polynesian Cultural Center is just 1/4 mile from the property. This venue is a full day and evening of activities, shows, canoe rides, food, and entertainment to help you experience all the islands and cultures of the South Pacific in one place. Go back the second day free to catch the events you missed on your first day!

Hukilau Beach is the beach along the Laie Bay and is a long sandy beach, great for swimming, snorkeling, surfing, and jogging. It is known as one of the best places on the island for kite surfing and instructors are available here in Laie. Goat island is just off shore and makes for a fun morning of exploring. You can just take a short walk across the reef to get there.

Explorers will enjoy a nice morning hike up to Laie Falls for a great workout and enjoy the local flora along the way.

Brigham Young University campus is right next to the Polynesian Cultural Center and is the main source of employees for the Center with students coming from all over Polynesia to attend school. Over 50 countries are represented in the student body. This University is known to have the most diverse population in the country.

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints Temple graces the community, sitting up on the hill overlooking the bay. You cannot miss it as the grounds begin with the meditation park on the beach and extend up past the elementary school on Hale La'a (meaning house of the Lord), to the base of the Temple.

Turtle Bay Resort is just a 10 minute drive north and is the home of a world famous golf coarse nestled along the North Shore Coast line. They also offer Tennis, and several options for fine dining. Check their event calendar on line for the Sea Food festival and the gourmet Chef cook off held each year.
