About Martha

I came to Hawaii to go to school and play tennis for BYU Hawaii. I got married and had 6 kids and we just finished a new house. We put a 2 bedroom apartment on the side of it to be able to pay our huge Hawaii mortgage.

Martha purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Martha chose Laie

We bought this property because the lot was big and we wanted to build a house. After 3 years of hard work, we finally did it!!

What makes this apartment unique

It's on a park and between the mountains and the beach. My husband and I work at BYU Hawaii and it's 3/4 a mile away. We love Laie and this area.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This place was fantastic! It was a brand new 2 bedroom, and right in the heart of Laie. The family was so helpful and welcoming. The rental is on the main level of a family home, and it was as nice, if not nicer, than a hotel stay. They had everything we needed in a home away from home, laundry included (a huge perk to the constant beach goer!). Also- if you've never stayed on the east/north shore, this place is perfect, its a perfect distance to every exciting and beautiful thing to do on the north shore, while being close to the grocery store, as well as places to eat. We now consider this family to be our friends, and will most definitely be renting this place out again the next time we come to the island!

Clean, well stocked apartment, awesome landlord

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the Banana Bungalow. Martha was awesome to work with and we had everything we needed there. It is only about a block away from our favorite beach on the north shore as well. I would highly recommend staying here and we hope we can come back again soon.

Very bad experience!

  • 1 of 5

There was very uncomfortable smell in rooms that made my kid allergic. He had to rebook a room in Turtle bay. There was short supply of hot water till late in the night. And the hostess complain we have too many people there. Actually, we only have two, we suppose have three. I was told by Agoda which said the total price, but when we arrived. They add very high extra payment. This is fatally unacceptable! My kid ask the hostess whether there is a breakfast tomorrow, the answer is like this : no ! This is America! American people never eat breakfast?!
