Why Laycie Love chose Oahu

(From Mike the owner)

I love sharing my 'home away from home' with guests... Every piece of the property reflects my passions & I feel it is an honor to have out-of-towners & locals alike experience & appreciate this beautiful 'Heaven on Earth.' I even hand-planted the trees & foliage on the 1/2 acre property! There is no doubt, you will love our property just as much as I do & will return as soon as you can...

What makes this house unique

See the Reviews! My Home is a Rare Gem Because of the Location, Semi-Private Pier & Sailing Catamaran Plus the Amazing Amenities, VIEW & Home & Landscaping :) Come Visit Today!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Terrific and relaxing stay

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay! Everything was perfect and spotlessly clean.

Our favorite parts were hanging on the lanai reading books, sitting in the hot tub, seeing stars with little light pollution, the friendly wildlife (geckos!).

The location is perfect. And the drive to the house is probably one of the most spectacular views I have ever seen.

Amazing 10 Days

  • 5 of 5

I can honestly say with zero doubt in my mind that I picked the perfect place to stay in Oahu. I narrowed it down to a house on the North Shore and one just south of the Polynesian Cultural Center. I am so glad I picked this one. It has everything, including location, location, location!

The view was stunning. The water was gorgeous with great snorkeling. The house was the perfect size for our group of 4. The location provides easy access to all over the island. Great restaurants are within 6 miles in either direction.

I already sent the house web link to several friends who are considering a trip to Oahu.

If we ever return, this is where we will stay.

Waterfront wonder

  • 4 of 5

This house is right on the water. Perfect for morning coffee, BBQ and sleeping with the sound of the ocean surrounding you. The kitchen is roomy, somewhat spartan supplies. Nice bathrooms. Air conditioning helps with sleeping at night. There are three rentals in this compound. The wedding group in the big house was loud a couple nights, so many people staying there...18 at my count. But they were nice and left during the day most days. Owner, Mike, is an expert sailor and took everyone but me (I blew out my knee the second day) out on his Polynesian designed catamaran ...Rabbit Island and surfing the waves. So nice to provide this for us. Note on the knee, Castle Medical is fabulous just up the road 15 minutes. Waimanalo is great, a little gathering on the highway, country feel, mostly away from the crowds of Honolulu and Hawaii Kai. Nice to have access to all services, while staying in 'the country'. There was more contact with the owner than we are used to. But he is interesting, and that catamaran was fabulous, even meeting a famous artist he brought along for the sail.

Quite place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

We really loved the property. It was secure and off the hustle of a hotel. You could see turtles and plenty of tropical fish. The Hawaii 50 connection was great. Would stay there again.

We nicknamed the home Paradise Pier

  • 4 of 5

The home was beyond expectations. The home was clean, nicely appointed and equipped with the basic tools needed to prepare meals.

We especially enjoyed the home for it's outdoor seating overlooking the ocean. The views were awesome! The location was very peaceful and provided us a place to look forward to return to after a day of sight seeing.

The owner Laycie was very professional and responded quickly to any questions we had.

Incredible stay in Oahu

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have had a more spectacular time in Oahu at this lovely beach house. Everything about check-in went very smoothly. Our kids played for hours on the tree house and swing overlooking the ocean. Enjoying a glass of wine on the swing after a day of sightseeing around the island was another highlight. The kitchen and bathrooms have recently been redone and are very nice. The kitchen is well appointed and had every utensil we needed for cooking our own meals while there. One bathroom has a very new washer/dryer set that we put to good use! The outdoor shower was also wonderful for washing off after time on the private beach. The location of the beach house great too - very close to Kailua/Lanikai, an easy drive into Honolulu, just down the street from the walking trail up the peak to Makapu'u lighthouse. My family wanted to stay here forever. Mahalo to Laycie and Mike for everything!
