A breathtaking ocean view strikes you immediately upon entering our simply decorated tropical island style home.
The main house is a 2 bedroom 2 bath home looking directly to the ocean. The Private 3rd bedroom is attached the main house but separated with its own entry door. You would have the nice option to just simply rent the 2 bedroom main home allowable up to 4 -5 adults, or you can rent the total 3 bedrooms from 5 to 8 adults, or 10 people (if there are children). If you are NOT renting the 3rd bedroom you still have the privacy of the property since this 3rd bedroom is only a convenience option for whomever rents the main house. (more rate information given at end section)
This simple home has a lot size 11,000 sq. ft lot is nicely located pleasantly away(unlike the majority of vacation rentals in this area) from the busy highway to hear nothing but to soothing waves. Most vacation rentals have owners/renters living on the same property, this one is PRIVATE (no other occupants).
The Private Sundance spa (outdoor hot bath with massage jets) is central to the 3 oceanfront decks. The rocky oceanfront is about 8 feet above the water:(great for fishing). This rental is located on a peninsula. If our dynamic rocky oceanfront is not enough, sandy beaches are located just minutes away by foot on either side. Our neighborhood's private SANDY beach 'right away' is just about 4 houses away about a 2-5 minute walk from the house. Walking along this beach is virtually deserted with crystal clear waters.
At the tip of the Laie peninsula is preserved as park. But also, is also popular for the big game fisherman, but bring your fishing pole because you may fish right off the deck at the house.
This is real Hawaii without high rise hotels.
Near by famous places within a 30 minute drive away... Sunset Beach (World Surfing Contests), Waiamea Bay and Valley, 5 miles of the most famous surfing beaches in the world.
For the tourist: visit Haleiwa (shopping for friends, fishing boats, jet skiing and more surfing) and Turtle Bay Hilton in Kahuku for some fancy eating and night entertainment (about 10 minutes away).
And after visiting these areas you can come back to your home on the ocean and take a nice hot spa experience that you should never forget while sipping on a refreshing Maitai.
This home is in a residential neighborhood and so you will get the feel of what it is like to live in Hawaii, the easy going slight country style of living. The three decks and views makes this home a special place to enjoy. Newly improved installed windows which allow nearly double the breeze as it did before. Again, this is a residential neighborhood, and as much as the decks are a perfect place to tan nude. The neighbors can see you.. So please refrain from any nude sunbathing on the decks.
The spa makes this home extra special. Just think of seeing the views during the day or looking at the stars at night from this soothing massage hot water spa.
The yard is considered large in Hawaii's terms and mostly level.
The kitchen is efficient with range, refrigerator and cabinets. Other amenities include: washer and dryer, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, blender, rice cooker, pots and pans, cooking and eating utensils and dishware. Enjoy the view as sip on an ice cold beverage on the deck and entertain your other guest as they sit in the hot Jacuzzi.

This property is away from the the loud highway, where all you can hear is the ocean. This home is older but comfy and provides all the same features as your home would offer.
The home has unique benefits many vacation rentals do not acquire which is privacy. The laid back and simple decor with a tropical theme make you feel at home. Of course being away from the noise of the main road was a real plus.
Perfect relaxing place for our family to stay on our visit to Oahu. Beautiful ocean views and cool breezes. Quiet neighborhood. We reallly enjoyed our stay. All the comforts of home.
The “Rat” House:
Our problems began and continued with poor communication with Alicia. Although we had paid everything on time, 4 days before arrival she wasn't sure we had paid and hesitated in giving us the key code. Very stressful situation. Later, when we discovered all of the problems with the house she ignored our emails and calls.
The "Rat House"
Upon entering the house we were shocked at the disrepair. It is advertised as “rustic.” It is dilapidated…not rustic.
The second night while sitting in the hot tub, my brother in law observed a big RAT crawl across a small support beam and enter the house by their bedroom. We were shocked. We had no idea if this rat was IN the house so we didn’t sleep at all that night. In addition, a barely standing privacy fence banged in the wind all night making sleep impossible.
I called and emailed Alicia the next morning to explain the rat situation…no response. Later in the day, 2 guys arrived to look at the problem. No call letting us know. They said they’d be back at 3 to fix it. So we sat around until one came back and cleaned out the rat’s nest and fixed the fence. We don’t know what happened to the rat.
After this we REALLY started looking at this house. This is what we found:
• The pictures are not accurate. The beautiful deck pictured on VRBO does not exist. Instead, the deck is a painted, peeling, rust stained plywood floor. There are no spindles between the railing posts. Instead, 2x2’s are nailed diagonally from post to post and some sections have nothing but the posts! This could not possibly pass a building inspection as there are huge gaps. This is a HUGE concern if you have children as they could fall.
• NO fire detectors ANYWHERE.
• A line of ants crawl across the ceiling several times a day. They just appear.
• 3 matching chairs at dining table (1 broken) and a padded computer chair =4
• Wires in bathrooms and outside are not all enclosed.
• Rotting windowsills and outside wood. Eaves are fully rotted in areas.
• Carpet is filthy.
• Coffee pot makes 2 cups at a time.
• Undersupplied kitchen of a few cups, a few forks a bit of this and that.
• One of the outside walls is not secure…it moves! We could see light coming in from outside at the base of the wall. Must be rotted.
After several calls/emails to Alicia again about the disrepair of the property. We were offered and accepted a one night refund.
Ask for updated pictures of this house BEFORE renting! Buyer Beware!
The location on the water and the quiet street is wonderful/amazing! The house is clean. The house furnishings are meager and hard-used from the dishes, utensils, linens, bedding and furniture. We purchased a dishpan so we could wash dishes in the sink, hangars (few provided in house), a small Weber grill (VRBO description said this was provided - it isn't). It reminded me of my first apartment furnished from others curbside throw-aways and yard sales. There's a great new big screen tv but a very minimal cable package. There's good wifi connectivity so bring your own device for streaming. Laie Point is beautiful, the description of the property states Laie is a Mormon town which we didn't understand also means it is a alcohol free community, none available for purchase in town on-sale or off-sale. If you have never been to Oahu and Laie I recommend you use YELP or similar app to look at availability of sit-down restaurants, nightlife options, etc before booking - there's little to none. Travel time by car pretty much averages out to a 30 mile/hour travel duration - outside of Honolulu means auto/bus or walking transportation only.
Stunning ocean view and atmosphere. A bit rustic but clean. Hot tub is a nice touch but never had time to use it. Very convenient to shopping center in Laie. Note, there was no hair drier. Thanks for the stay.
This is a really special property. House is clean and simple. Easy walk to a rocky outlook with awe inspiring view in one direction, and to a quiet easy-to-swim beach in the other. Star gazing from the hot tub was a highlight. Market center really close by for everything you need. Very relaxing location on the island- easy to explore the North shore and far enough from busy Honolulu. We definitely plan to return again.
The house wasn't luxurious but met all our expectations. Faces us a great place to stay and relax with plenty of room for the 5 of us. Would love to stay again, soon
