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!
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!
We really enjoyed our stay and will return. Very clean, well laid out and in a safe location. Beautiful view of the ocean while we had dinner on the deck. The owner was very good to work with. Very honest. Highly recommend. 😀
2 bedroom, 1 bath Unit was on 2nd floor w/private entrance. Could see ocean from patio, where we ate. Very clean and quiet. Beds Comfortable. Excellent location--close to LDS Temple, Polynesian Cultural Center, etc. Will stay there again when we return.
This apartment fit our needs exactly. It's within easy walking distance of several eating establishments, as well as a grocery store. It sits right on the road to a popular spot on the ocean (The Point), which is popular with fisherman, sightseers and young people who dive off the rocky cliffs (a little too exciting for me to try). It's worth noting that, during the off-season, Hawaii gets light earlier in the morning than you're probably used to. As such, people start working earlier. The garbage truck, for instance, made it's pickup at 5:55 AM on Thursday morning. The folks who were filling in the foundation for the new structure across the street started before 7:00. Other than that, this apartment allowed us to really kick back and enjoy our stay in Laie.
Although I wouldn't call it "luxury", we loved this place, its location, and the view! I gave it a 5 star because it was even more than what we expected. We ate all our meals on the patio/balcony. The ocean breeze was so relaxing! There is no AC but with the fans and open windows it was very pleasant. (Who wants to be cooped-up in a closed AC room when you can enjoy the ocean breeze and sounds?) Marci was easy to contact and is very friendly. We felt safe, welcome and comfortable. It was our first time using VRBO and we will definitely do it 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.
