  • Perfect holiday home in the North Shore.

    "Our family of 8 adults and 2 kids had a fantastic 10 day stay at the Hidden Gemstone. The house is very bright and spacious. It has the most stunning view of the ocean. The kitchen, living room, dining room and common areas are really well designed to provide a lot of space and it was perfect for our family. The location is great. A one minute drive from the Laie shopping center and a 3 minute drive to the beach. Some of the most famous attractions on the island (Sharks Cove, Waimea Beach, Waimea falls, Haleiwa beach) are a 20-30 minute drive away. Laura, the lady who oversees the property was very helpful and we received clear communication & direction from her. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone who is visiting the North Shore of Oahu."

  • Wonderful vacation!

    "We rented the whole house for 13 days in 2016. Loved it! Access to beach can't be beat. My grandchildren (12, 10, 17, 2) played in the waves for hours. At high tide we had to be careful with the 2-year-old, but at low tide it was perfect. The house had plenty of room and was well stocked and well maintained. Here are a few improvements/suggestions I would have for the owner/management. The yard was somewhat messy when we arrived and since first impressions can't be redone, a little more care could have been paid to it. There were no screens in two of the windows upstairs and two of the fans didn't work on high (important when there's no air conditioning). This ad lists a small cooler. There isn't one. The trash and recycling bins were both full. Maggots in the trash can! We arrived on the afternoon of trash day, so we had to store trash in the garage for a full week. Found two blowup beds and neither was usable (no pump, holes). Master bedroom TV never would advance past the setup screen (two techies with us had no luck). Wish there was a vacuum for sand. Picking up and returning keys (a 45 min drive) was a hassle. Need a keypad or keybox. Charges a fee to put balance on credit card. In the positive column, futon mattress is thick and I think even an adult would be comfortable on it. When the downstairs needed a new bedside lamp, the management company got one quickly. My daughter bought a baby gate for the top of the stairs and we left it there for others to use. Don't think I would rent the downstairs if strangers were renting upstairs. You can hear every footstep downstairs. Location is great with shopping and attractions close. Had to go to Tamura's Market for liquor. None to be found in Laie (Mormon town). We love North Shore Tacos, Seven Brothers (both of them), Giovanni's, Lulu's (in Honolulu). Spent a day at Kuilima Cove at Turtle Bay. Expensive drinks and food, but good and nice to have access to. Good snorkeling (we snorkeled a lot at the house, too. Bring your own stuff. Equipment at the house is very limited). Went on helicopter rides with Paradise Helicopters at Turtle Bay. Everyone that went thought it was amazing! Rented SUPs from Uncle Bryan's in Haleiwa and paddleboarded with sea turtles. Visited Polynesian Cultural Center. Buffet food lacking but Ha' show wonderful. The ice cream shop in Laie Center has the real Dole Pineapple Whip! Would rent this house again in a heartbeat!"

  • Wonderful family fun!

    "We absolutely loved our stay here! Our family group of 15- newborn to great-grandparents- was comfortably accommodated in the 4-bedroom and 1 studio. Geri and Ke'Alii were so friendly and helpful! They were available when we needed them (right next door), and went out of their way to make sure our stay was enjoyable. The beach was a short walk away and it was amazing! There was a protected area perfect for the little ones, and farther down the bigger kids (and adults) loved boogie boarding and snorkeling. The beach was never crowded, and some of the days we practically had it to ourselves. We really appreciated being away from the hustle and bustle of Waikiki. Even though we were in the"country", we were very close to groceries and supplies- very convenient. The on-site laundry facility was a lifesaver for our large group. The outdoor shower was great when returning from the beach. We loved the front porch! We frequently ate our evening meal out there and played card games. There was also a clothes line which was so handy for hanging wet swim suits and beach towels. I could go on and on! We really had a wonderful time! Mahalo, Geri and Ke'Alii!"

  • A good choice

    "The location is convenient, a nice little patio with grassy meadow view, beautiful beach across the road, close to all the attractive and convenient features of Laie and the whole North Shore, clean with little touches of thoughtful decor, very good bed, good WiFi, kitchen and bath. The main negatives are a too noisy portable air conditioner in the bedroom with a leaky heat exhaust , very limited TV coverage (which we didn't watch much anyway). Quick response to a problem with the key when we first arrived."
