About the property

3-bed 1-bath full kitchen footsteps to the beach! Great place to come home to!

Time goes fast! Slow it down island-style in this apartment by the beach. With three bedrooms, one bathroom and a full kitchen, this is the perfect home base for your family vacation. Beach is 2 minutes (or less) walk from the front door. Literally just across the street. All linens and towels provided, free wi-fi and tv. Some beach toys and boogie boards available to borrow. This place has everything you need and will leave plenty of budget for island exploration!

Laie is a great neighborhood to live or vacation in. The spirit of Aloha is alive and well here and you will feel more like a local than a tourist in this small town.

Attractions in or near Laie include:


A variety of hiking trails of all difficulty levels lead you into the lush tropical forest, some winding along stream beds, and others climbing all the way to the ridge of the Ko'olau mountain range. Many trails end at breathtaking, secluded waterfalls that will make you feel like you're the only person on earth.


Spend a day (or two) exploring and learning about the many different cultures of Polynesia. The center is made up of seven different authentic "villages," each representing a different island culture. The dancing, music, cultural presentations and activities will keep you (and your kids) entertained for hours. They also put on fantastic and delicious nightly luaus. Their evening show is spectacular, not something to miss out on.


The beaches in Laie are dreamy and crowdless. The sandy Hukilau Beach is literally footsteps from your front door, and you could easily spend an entire vacation swimming in the cool blue water, lazing on the sand, and walking/jogging miles along the coast. East-facing for fantastic sunrises over the water. It’s a great beach for kids as well, with provided beach toys and boogie boards to help keep them busy.

Within 15 minutes drive, you will encounter world-famous surfing beaches including Pipeline and Sunset, and impressive snorkeling at the Shark’s Cove marine preserve, with an endless variety of other beaches in between. All shoreline in Hawaii is public property and there are public access points all along the coast.


Gunstock Ranch, about half a mile away, has horseback riding tours that will take your breath away and show you the country side of this small town.


At the recently-opened Keana Farms Zipline Adventure, see the tropical rainforest from an entirely different perspective.


A surprising array of restaurants are located in Laie. Everything from your average chain places (Subway, Taco Bell, etc) to truly unique food experiences like Hukilau Cafe, Seven Brothers Backyard Burgers, Pounders at the Hukilau Marketplace, and Papa Ole’s Kitchen. Something for everyone.

This apartment is part of our home that serves as housing for students of the nearby BYU-Hawaii most of the year. It has its own separate entrance from the rest of the house, and there are no shared common areas. The only time you might cross paths with another tenant will be in the laundry room, located at the back of the house.

Please note, to keep our prices rock bottom we do not provide A/C. There are ceiling fans and stand fans in every bedroom and the living area to help keep you cool.

About Jenne Paddock

Originally from opposite coasts of the US, my husband and I met, fell in love and had our three babies in the idyllic island town of Laie. We love the outdoor lifestyle and are passionate about traveling. One of the best things about going on a trip is knowing we will come home to our own little slice of paradise!

Jenne Paddock purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Jenne Paddock chose Laie

We bought this home in 2007 at the very start of our marriage. It was old, tiny and full of potential. A lot of blood, sweat and tears went into making it what it is today. We did much of the work ourselves, making memories and putting our love into it.

It was as advertised. The owners were very quick to address our concerns.

  • 5 of 5

The Beach is right across the street. There is a running path very close to the property. It’s very close to a grocery store and PCC. It was a decent place at a good price. Jenne was super quick to respond to my texts if I had any questions. Her husband came over very quickly to fix a problem we had with a bed. I would have liked a larger stock of garbage bags and toilet paper, but overall it was great.

Great stay in Laie

  • 5 of 5

I had some business to attend to at BYU Hawaii for the week. There were 2 of us and the 3 bedroom unit worked out very nicely. The unit was clean and conveniently close to the university. The wifi was very good and allowed us to get additional work done after the offices at the university had closed. The beach was easily accessible just across the street and the unit had boogie boards and other beach fun things to use, though we did not use them this trip. Having a kitchen was very nice.

Disappointed guests, there were many problems with this rental

  • 1 of 5

The screen door was unhinged when we arrived, so the rental owner came to put the door back up on the runner. The kitchen sink was dripping and that was fixed, too.

For the high cleaning fee, the place didn’t seem very clean. Most of the ceiling fans were very dusty and dirty, the walls in need of paint, the furniture, such as the dining room table and dresser in the one bedroom I stayed in, in need of refinishing. Bathroom was nice. The kitchen was OK, but the stovetop (where the dials are) was scratched up and the drawer under the oven was very dirty. The wood flooring needs some work; in places it was loose.

The bedroom curtains were dirty and the blanket on the small bed I slept in was very smelly.

There was noise from the college students upstairs. During our first night, there was constant going up and down the stairway that is right over the room with the double bed where my friend slept. The three students living upstairs were stomping around until quite late. After talking with the owner, the second night was much better, however, you can still hear footsteps and noises pretty clearly from upstairs. We knew that the place was a bit worn from other reviews and that things needed repair, but I wasn’t expecting this level of inattention.

The rental unit is right off very busy and noisy Kamehameha Highway. The driveway is very steep and it’s difficult to exit if not dangerous. The owner was very kind and came over to help us with the TV remote control. A card with instructions on how to use the TV would be helpful. We didn’t use the TV very much, but, again, just a little attention to details would make the place a more relaxing and welcoming offer. BTW, it was very dusty and dirty behind the TV set; obviously no one has dusted much lately.

We would not choose to stay at this rental again, in spite of the kindness of the owner. We had to walk along the busy road and cross at a cross walk to get to the beach, which seemed dangerous due to the high volume of traffic on the main highway. Hukilau beach is beautiful but, sadly, rife with plastic trash from ships, debris from the Japan tsunami, and various fishing equipment from boats, such as oyster spacers, containers, and shrimp catchers. Beware if you have children or dogs at the beach… because the trash, it can be unsafe (sharp plastic pieces, tiny pieces that could be easily swallowed, etc).

Great location

  • 4 of 5

My family loved the proximity to the beach. I was unable to cross the street safely after being in a terrible car accident. Restaurants in the area were very good. It was a great get away.
