  • Clean and Right on the Beach

    "Our family of 10 loved this home for 8 days. It was clean and the house is equipped with dishes, pots/pans, and silverware. There is a dishwasher so it wasn't a big deal to wash dishes, but we still bought paper plates and a flat of bottled water and a sharpie and had everyone write their name on the bottles and refill them. The two refrigerators gave us plenty of space for food. We saved a lot of money just by eating in instead of going out to eat, and it was much healthier food. We had enough space for everyone to sleep. Our son needed to use the blow up mattress, which had a slow leak, but it worked fine. We also needed to call to get an extra blanket, but the caretaker was very responsive and made sure that happened quickly. She also answered all of my questions quickly prior to the trip. The beach was great! We spent a lot of time boogie boarding on the waves, while the younger of our kids (4 and 5) and grandma and grandpa played in the sand. There was rarely anyone on the beach for a mile in either way. It was like having a private beach. And we say a turtle in the water. There were beach towels and bath towels. It would have been nice to have a clothesline to hang the towels to help them to dry quickly and keep them cleaner, but there was a small washer/dryer so we were able to wash them when they got dirty and half-way through the trip my husband makeshift a clothesline. The big yard was great and the volleyball net and ball and basketball court and ball provided was fun for the kids. We bought a couple of boogie boards, but there were already a couple there are the property that other guests had left. We left ours as well so there are now four. We also bought sand toys, which we left, but again there were already sand toys so again there are plenty of those. There were a couple of weddings on the property next to us. One of the weddings had everything wrapped up before it got late and it wasn't a problem, but the other was noisy late into the night. On the other side of the property, we had the same issue on another night. They were out late talking and laughing on the deck. The home doesn't have air conditioning so we slept with the windows open. Otherwise, I don't think either night would have been an issue. Keeping the windows open kept the house cool enough. We would also open the front door with screen door closed, and opened the sliding back door with screen closed, and got good air flow. We would rent this home again."

  • Everything we wanted!

    "My family just got home from our stay and already miss Laie, HI. We had a group of 16 and rented the house and both apartments. It was perfect! We had plenty of space, a large yard, and privacy. We walked out of the backyard gate and were right on the beach. My husband and I once stayed in a large rental house in Kaaawa and were sad we couldn't rent the same house this time, but this was so much better for our family. The house was located right off the main road but it still felt private. It is an older home but had all the things necessary to be comfortable while away from our own home. The main house had 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, plus a bed off the living area, perfect for my 2 daughters to share. They felt they were right in the middle of all the family action. We spent most days on the beach, if we weren't already out around the island doing other activities. This house sat right in the middle of a bay that we loved walking around each morning and night. The waves weren't too big, but big enough to boogie board. We were even able to snorkel right our in front of the house and my nephew saw a big turtle. I would definitely recommend water shoes, as there are areas of rocks off the beach, but that only makes snorkeling more interesting. The stores and a few restaurants were close by. We even bought a basketball and went to the elementary school one night to play ball with the family, then later donated the ball to a family who lives nearby. The homeowner called to check in on us after we arrived, then contacted us during the week after one night of rain to make sure all was well. This was a great location overall. It was away from the big city to the South, but we were able to go everywhere we wanted during the week. I would plan accordingly as there were areas of crazy road construction and it took longer than we hoped to travel some days, but no one can really help that. If I was to come back to Oahu, I would stay here again!"

  • Wow... simply WOOOW

    "My family met for a family reunion-ish getaway and stayed here for ten days. There were three adult couples, a single adult, and three kids. We all had plenty of space, and the property was incredible. There is a good size yard, a big deck for lounging, and plenty of freedom. It is right on the beach, conveniently located on a spot where there aren't coral/rock formations. GREAT place for swimming. Surrounding areas have a lot of jagged coral(visible from satellite/aerial maps), which isn't so great for swimming and relaxing. The depression(big sand "hole" seen on maps) is evidently a spring where the coral cannot grow. Along the edges of depression is a coral/rock wall that houses a lot of fish, eel, and other wildlife that you can see when snorkeling. A few turtles even take up residence there. This is simply an incredible place to stay, and I can't say enough about it. VERY private, as it has its own gate for entry."
