Fenced Property-Outdoor Hot/Cold Shower-Partial Oceanview-2 TV's-Sleeps 4
It's located on the southern border of Laie, near Kokololio Beach, this 650 square foot, vacation rental occupies the entire top floor and has nice views of the surrounding area from the ocean to the mountains. The air-conditioned bedroom has a queen-size bed and there is a full size futon couch/bed in the living room for two more. A cozy kitchen means you do not have to go out for every meal. A stainless steel gas barbecue grill with side burner on the oversized 375 square foot deck is another nice place to cook and eat or just to sunbathe on the two teak loungers.
This rental is just 100 yards from a 3/4 mile long stretch of sandy beach (legal beach access is at the end of the lane). It is a perfect place to walk, swim, or boogie board and the beach park restrooms and showers are close by. The Polynesian Cultural Center (with its luau dinners and hula shows) is just a few minutes away. The Turtle Bay Hilton is just 10 minutes north and offers a fabulous Sunday brunch and golfing. A little further up the road are the famous North Shore surfing beaches and Haleiwa Town with all it's shopping and resturants.

Aloha, I'm a husband, father, jack of all trades, coach of all sports and owner/manager of 5 vacation rentals in Hawaii. I was raised in Hawaii from the age of 8 years old after my family moved here from the USA mainland. Hawaii has so much to offer and I hope you get the chance to visit and explore this amazing state.
Greg purchased this House in 2003
Why Greg chose Hauula
We love this beach property. It's so close to the beach, restaurants and grocery stores. The small town feeling and tight community on this beach lane is familiar since I grew up in a small town, on a cul-d-sac on Oahu.
What makes this House unique
The beach is great, the waves are always gentle, even in the winter when other North Shore surf spots are reaching 25 feet. A perfect beach for swimming and boogie boarding. The deck of the Beach Lane View rental is my favorite. Up high with a partial water view and those grand Koolau mountains on the other side. We love to cook and eat outside on the deck and relax.

Greg the owner was very responsive and friendly. The place had a nice deck and good access to the beach. We loved that snorkel equipment and coolers were available for our use. The bed was comfortable. Overall the place was adequate. A couple of draw backs for us was the property was located right on a fairly busy road and you could hear traffic noise all day/night and the place smelled a bit musty.
Nice space but......
Nice and spacious and the deck was a nice option although it's right beside the highway so very noisy. If you value peace and quiet this will be problematic. Close proximity to north shore attractions. However be aware that the rental fee is based on 2 people, each additional person is $20 per person per day. This is not in the advertisement and only became clear when we confirmed our booking and were issued our payment breakdown. This can add up for a family of four depending on your length of stay. The nearby beach is definitely a nice option for a walk or quick dip but isn't really conducive to a day on the beach as the water is quite rocky and the north shore is quite windy. We were also a bit uncomfortable with the fact that some homeless people were camped in the bushes/trees along the beach. Overall it was a well stocked and comfortable space with one significant exception - the bed is very uncomfortable. If you're looking for quiet and to get well rested in a comfy bed, this is not the place for you.
Thank you for your feedback. We are always looking for ways to improve our home and we were just pricing out a new bed from different sources. As to our pricing, I think we are very competitive and we have filled out our rates according to the format of the website - there's is nothing we can do to change that. However, the total amount due is given to prospective guests before they click confirm - so it seems a little unfair to post a negative review based on this. We recently upgraded this unit with split AC - which is very nice for the summertime and does allow guests to close the windows if the traffic noise is bothersome. This is a two lane roadway and it doesn't bother us, but everyone is different. We also love the beach at the end of the lane. There are tide pools right outside the beach access and if you walk a little north there's a big break in the reef with a sandy bottom, perfect for swimming and the reef allows for some snorkeling. We have masks & fins stocked at the house along with boogie boards and sand toys for our guests.
Nice place close to many north shore activities
Nice place, close to the Polynesian cultural center and byu-Hawaii. Overall nice and clean with the amenities you would need to survive. Great for a couple, would be tight and a bit uncomfortable if there are more. The deck is nice but it is next to a busy road and you really can't see the beach. The beach is just a short walk down a private lane and is easily accessible. We only stayed 2 nights so it was a short stay. Greg was great to work with and was consiencious to make sure we got in ok and that all was well. I would recommend it to friends for a short stay to enjoy the north end of the island. We loved the covered parking with the gate that keeps you feeling safe and private. Thanks Greg for letting us enjoy your place.
Great cozy unit
This was a great place for a weekend visit. Location was convenient- about 20 minutes from the big North Shore beaches. Had a nice big deck and grill which we put to use. Also, you can walk to end of street where there is beach access but not a deep beach at all so seating can be tough especially with high tide and beware of rocks in the water. Great option if you're looking for North Shore rentals.
Great location on northern part of the island. Comfortable and close to the beach.
Air conditioning in the bedroom which was good as we needed it. Open windows cooled the rest of the space. Beautiful and nearby beaches. Nice outdoor shower for after beach rinse off. Loved the outside deck. Close to grocery shopping and juice stands. Minutes from the shrimp shacks and Polynesian cultural Center. Kitchen was great. We used a hot plate as there wasn't a stove top and it worked out fine. Nice covered parking. Greg was super attentive and easy to work with.
Thank you for taking the time to give us a nice review - we appreciate it! Since your stay we have upgraded the house with a split AC which is in the bedroom and living room - keeping the whole house cool. This will keep those hot summer nights cool!
Great place to stay, close to everything we wanted to do.
We loved this cozy cottage. It was close to the beach and everything on the North Shore that we wanted to do. We appreciated the beach toys and gear that we could use. Loved being close to Laie so we could visit BYU-HI, PCC, Keana zip line tour, and temple grounds. We were a short drive to Sharks Cove, Sunset, Waimea, and Haleiwa. We loved eating at Tita's Grill in Kahuku, and Hukilau Cafe and Seven Brother's in Laie. Lots of close fun places to visit, eat at, and enjoy. The cottage had pretty much everything we needed for the evenings when we came back from our day trips. We appreciated the little bin of toys for my toddler to enjoy. The only reason I didn't give this place 5 stars is because the bed was uncomfortable. Other than that everything was great.
A beautiful, uncrowded beach with restrooms and showers is steps away, as well as the bus stop, A grocery store, drug store and restaurants are within walking distance, the Polynesian Cultural Center, LDS Temple and BYU start about a mile away, visit North Shore for Big Surf viewing, Haleiwa Town for charters or tours, Shopping and Fine Dining, Turtle Bay Resort for Golf, Tennis, Fine Dining and Dancing, Kualoa Ranch for Guided Tours, Horseback, Jet Ski and ATV riding.
