Our stay in the little studio in Laie was pure delight! Upon arriving at the property we were met by Martha, the manager. She took us inside for the tour and let us know about the unit. We were a little surprised at how small the unit is, but figured we would make do. It didn't take long for the size to become irrelevant and the efficiency to become a joy. The lanai, yard and beach more than made up for space missing inside. The location was perfect for being able to visit all areas of the island and have a comfortable retreat to return to. The only outside noises we heard were of ocean, and sometimes wind and rain. The unit was clean and well kept and the futon bed made sleeping very comfortable. Our favorite place to get food (take out) was the Korean BBQ in the next little village to the south. Martha and her husband Keld were helpful and served as good neighbors. We would definitely return to this property if we have the chance.
