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!
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
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.
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!
Very central to all the amenities, Pcc, Climb works zip line, Ku'uloa Ranch, North Shore, of course all the beaches in between, etc. We will definitely stay here when we visit the islands again. Thank you again Paddock Family. :)
Well maintained and had all of the supplies for cooking, dining and even provided beach towels. Thanks so much!
Great location to grocery and outdoor activities in the area. Loved that a secluded beach was just a cross the street. Apartment was clean, well stocked with kitchen and bathroom items and had everything we needed. Owner was very responsive. Thank you!
This is a great place to stay. Very clean and a lovely area. Very close to a nice beach, but also an easy drive to other quiet east shore beaches. Also, close to several restaurants and a grocery store. Also, an easy drive to many area food trucks. I highly recommend this rental. Thank you Marcy for providing a great rental.
The property is on a quiet road which leads to Laie point. The views are spectacular for sunrise. This is located on the 2nd floor, the accommodations were perfect for our family of 4. My girls are 19& 16 and they didn't mind share if a bed. Dont worry about not having A/c the trade winds cool down the apartment. I would definitely stay here again.
We were happy with the accommodation while visiting for a wedding. It was well maintained and comfortable. The kitchenette is sufficient for putting together small meals. Close to the beach and amenities. Owner responds quickly to messages. Make sure you park in the driveway, not the street or you'll get a ticket!
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.
