can't be the place I read about in the reviews . . .
We were excited about this cottage after reading the great reviews, but were in for a shock. The location is near the beach, a nice beach, and the decor is eclectic- that much is true. But the place was not suitable for the three of us; we left after just one night even though we had booked three. The cottage reeks of mildew and mold and was not very clean. There is no way to completely close the windows so everything in the cottage, including the cloth furniture, is damp. There was algae growing on the curtains and rat or mice droppings on top of the fridge. The dishes not in the cupboard were coated with salt spray; the dishes in the cupboard were of questionable cleanliness. The building itself looks like it has survived a fire that separated it from the main house (and the main house is really close- it didn't feel private at all). The electrical work in the cottage is really scary: the numerous extension cords and drapes right over the outlets do not seem safe. No one told us the bedroom was only about 10 feet from the highway and a bus stop, and we listened to buses starting and stopping all night long. There is also a public beach access path right along the side of the cottage, and there were people walking along there all night, some making strange noises. We only met the owners very briefly, and found them a little stand-off-ish. They seemed upset or confused that we had our son with us, as if they were only expecting two, but our reservation clearly was for 3. We ended up gong to a nearby resort for a much nicer stay at almost the same price. I've had great luck with VRBO in the past, but this experience may keep me from using the service again.
Enjoy living in a jungle on the beach!
You get the best of both worlds...lush foliage, sand and water. Who'd have guessed we would have the beauty of a jungle right on the beach! The carved antique bed is very comfortable as well as beautiful. Our hosts, Michael and Lelia were very accommodating...even sharing a pot of chili that is Michael's specialty! He is also an artist, and has delightful paintings hanging in the beach house. Close to everything. We will return!
Your own private paradise!
We've been coming to this cottage for over 10 years and it is still our favorite getaway. The beach is a 30 second walk from the lanai through a garden of amazing sculptures and art objects. Almost no one in sight for a full week. Perfect!
Sparkling sunrises, long walks along the quiet beach, most meals spent on the lanai listening to the roar of the ocean and all wrapped up in privacy and natural beauty. Our favourite spots were the nearby hiking trails into the rain forest, the sunsets and turtle watching along the North Shore and the intriquing Valley of the Temples. The hosts Michael and Lelia are helpful and fun people who made the stay perfect.

We were so happy with our stay at Michael & Lelia's, we were looking for something special for our stay in Oahu and we found that at their beach house. The house was just charming, and so close to the beach. We had wonderful privacy at all times but when we needed something Michael & Lelia were there for all our needs. The house was very warm and inviting. We enjoyed the eclectic decor, found the house very clean and everything we needed from Kitchen to Barbeque, Towels to Beach gear, just fantastic. The beach was so quiet we walked for 20 minutes and never saw anybody. The town of Laie was wonderful, quiet, nice people, good food.
My husband and I and our two girls stayed here for a week and we absolutely loved it! The location was perfect, the yard beautiful and the beach breath taking!!! We ate on the lanai every chance we got and was on the beach swimming a lot. The views were so wonderful and the sunrise inspiring. The bed was so comfortable and the kitchen perfect. I loved all the lizards that would show up on the plants out by the lanai. This made our trip to Oahu exactly what you expect for an island vacation. Thank you for sharing your little retreat:)
