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.

You are in Hawaii on the North Shore. I recommend this place for up to 4 adults that know how to travel with limited amenities and are not too far removed from college dorm life. The beds were not as hard as other reviews have said. The WIFI was blazing fast. Like the fastest I have ever had. I backed up the two weeks prior vacation pictures to the cloud overnight via the WIFI. The owner was responsive and provided one extra set of sheets for the chair futon. The location is good (great is right on the beach) just steps from the beach and steps from a decent little Hukilau cafe. I learned that AC is a must for our family and for sure my mother-in-law :). I would have been ok without it but as the person concerned about others comfort it was not enjoyable for me seeing others not comfortable without AC. If you have traveled enough you know that sometimes you cannot have everything perfect. An occasional bug will get in. Ants are probably the most common animal on the planet. Occasionally sink handles break. Sometimes you do not have AC. Sometimes there is only one pillowcase on a pillow. Its life and you are living it as I said on the North Shore of Hawaii for Pete's sake. Vacations help you learn to appreciate what you have at home too. To see a contrast is good for kids sometimes. Looking back on our trip we will not think about the AC. We will think of the Polynesian Cultural Center, the beach and the good times as a family. The owner was more than fair with us concerning any inconvenience we had. Owner gets 5 stars. Heavily consider the people you are booking for besides yourself is my only suggestion for this property. Enjoy the North Shore it really is a different feel from any of the islands.

Budget by the Beach is a great house to stay in!

  • 4 of 5

The property was a perfect location for us for lots of fun activities. There are a few things that need to be repaired. A broken handle on the kitchen faucet and the screen door. But over all it was a great experience!!!

Cheap but hot

  • 3 of 5

No AC and took a while to cool it down enough to sleep. Clean and basic enough. A low key place to crash at the beach.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review. Sorry if you were surprised that there is no A/C. . . It says that on the listing. Summer does get a bit warm here. We locals tend to spend it at the beach!
