Laie House Rental Photos and Description

4 bedrooms + Attached Unit, 3.5 bathrooms, Sleeps 10-15

Congratulations and thanks will go to the decision makers taking the time to note the difference before selecting this hidden gemstone for accomodations while on Oahu. Once your travel companions catch their breath after initial first peek, don't be surprised at the Ooohhing and Aaahhing with delight you'll hear upon arrival at this Spacious Home on Laie Pointe. With Bali/Indonesia Style Furnishings throughout, the inspirational 180 degree ocean view from all levels begins to be the backdrop for a thoughtfully planned dream house allowing for a variety of living choices all under one roof. This gives you and your guests choices of spacious areas for cooking, dining, planning or chillin'.

In other words, having the comfort of more than the average or 'adequate' space desired for all! The space to breath in the enchantment nature offers while enjoying your dreamy escape! It is truly postcard perfect and we invite you to be our guest!

First to describe the Studio with Private or Adjoining entry: Over 500 sq.ft. in this Bedroom/Living Area/Kitchen & Dining Suite sporting a fold down King Size 'Murphy' bed and 1 and 1/2 baths! Both the King and his Queen can enjoy a 'Jets Up' Jacuzzi Tub. Kitchen area totally spacious for today's living style, granite counter tops, generous dining space and living area with sleek, accommodating and comfortable furnishings. Blasting Cold A/C and constant Ocean View surround you. You'll be lured outdoors to the covered lanais tiled floor, another generous dining area complete with matching sunbathing or stargazing chaise lounge chairs.

Looks like you've already made yourself at home and started the bbq grill! So smoothly with the propane! What a retreat! Relax Already!

The Main House has two Stories on the Upper Levels, all with complete ocean view in all 'Living' Areas. 'Picture in a magazine' would best describe the comments from travelers at first site upon entering this majestic 'great room' and feeling its enchantment. The kitchen centers around an 'Inner Island' Stove top/Oven w/bar stool seating for ease in hearing each others latest stories.

The larger centrally located bar or counter top in the center of living space is complete with sink and one wine/beer chiller. Outdoor cooking w/large grill off outdoor veranda on this level as well as viewing what water sports are being enjoyed in the bay! Upstairs are 4 bedrooms, all having individual ceiling fans and window unit A/Cs of their own.

You can see, taste, feel and hear the ocean. Giving yourselves a much deserved detachment from the everyday pace. Here, the tranquil 'Auto-Pilot' setting is recommended allowing for all to breathe with greater ease. As In....Take It Easy! And Enjoy!

Thanks for allowing us to share this 'Dreamy Escape' with you and yours. Until we meet again. A hui ho!

Perfect holiday home in the North Shore.

  • 5 of 5

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.

Perfect Getaway, Breathtaking Views

  • 5 of 5

My family of 10 stayed in the main house as well as the attached studio apartment and it was even better than what we were expecting. The house was very well kept and the kitchen is newly remodeled and included all the appliances we needed. I cannot say enough about the balcony views overlooking the ocean. Unfortunately you cannot access the beach from the backyard but the closest beach is just a short drive away. The common living area had more than enough space to entertain my entire family and other guests that were staying in town.

The bedrooms were very cozy and the house also came with a few extra mattresses in case more sleeping space was required. The master bedroom had its own balcony with the best view in the house! A local market (Foodland) was right down the street and was very convenient. It may be helpful to note Laie is owned by the Mormon Church and is a dry town but there are places to buy adult beverages right outside the town. Laie point is a 5 minute walk away with more amazing views that we visited a few times throughout the week.

The only issue we came across was that some of the furniture seemed to be on the verge of breaking so we were sure to avoid using it in case it was us that completely broke it (living room lounge chair/balcony chair). House also came with some body boards, and snorkel gear.

Laura was very professional, responsive and easy to work with. Overall my family had such an amazing time and I would stay here again and highly recommend this property to any future tenants looking to stay on the north shore. Thank you for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home!

Just beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 11 adults for our stay. I did a search for a perfect place and this sure was perfect. The lay out was very open and welcoming. We enjoy hanging out in the kitchen area and the lanai very much. We all love to eat and sipping our cocktails at the lanai every morning and enjoy that beautiful ocean view. What a refreshing way to start out the day. The rooms were very spacious and beds were comfortable. The location was just about 5 min walk to the beach and as well as to foodland. We also visited a Japanese temple, we hike the laie falls, try out the food trucks, and the shave ice stop.

Laura was very easy to communicated with. The whole process with checking in and checking out was easy. The house was very clean. I would definitely booked this place again if I ever come back with my family. Thank you for sharing your home with us!

Big and Beautiful!

We had a group of 9 young adults. We rented the main house and the studio. There was so much space! We loved the open floor plan, high ceilings, and incredible view of the ocean. We didn't want to leave! Thank you so much Laura!
