E komo mai Hale Pili Lani. Welcome to our beach house close to heaven. Our well maintained, oceanfront hideaway is located on a private street in the lovely town of La`ie on the island of Oahu. It features spectacular ocean views and a peaceful and tranquil setting.
Appropriately named Hale Pili Lani, Hawaiian for House Close to Heaven, Hale Pili Lani will delight your senses. With 10 foot vaulted ceilings and spacious deck, our four bedroom, two bath retreat has all the comforts of home and stocked with amenities. Consider your own private breathtaking view on the lanai of La`ie Bay, a short path to the neighborhood beach and a lush, tropical landscaped hillside. For convenience, you've got Internet access and less than a 10 minute walk to shops.
Our red front door welcomes you to Hale Pili Lani. You enter on the first floor and you are standing on Italian porcelain tile which leads you to a spacious great room with its sliding glass doors opening to the lanai. Spectacular ocean views are everywhere! A fully equipped kitchen shares space off the great room.
Our house has HISTORY. We're new owners and the previous owner has graciously allowed us to use the REVIEWS from the past few years.

This is a serene, beautiful area to relax and reconnect with family. The house sits on an ideal angle right on the ocean so you get to enjoy the waves, Goat Island, and the beautiful crescent shaped beach. We enjoyed the simplistic layout of the house which takes advantage of the views and has a fantastic great room. Master suite below had welcomed privacy and ocean views. Garden is beautiful too. We snorkelled, rented a kayak on the beach and really enjoyed the drives to Pipeline, Dole Plantation, Polynesia Center and even the small village with Foodland, Icecream shop etc. Come and enjoy a slice of paradise!

We had a wonderful stay. There were 9 people in our group with plenty of room for all of us. The view was spectacular. Loved falling asleep to the sound of the ocean. Enjoyed that we could BBQ as well as have a full kitchen to use. Had a great time on the North Shore, loved it's slower pace. So very glad we stayed here.
Amazing long weekend stay

We needed to get away for a few days so we found this quaint Oahu beachfront house with dramatic views. Everything was in order: clean, nice furnishings and peace and quite. We spent hours on the deck and watched the windsurfers with a view of Goat Island in the background. Our stay exceeded all the great things we read in the reviews and the owner was attentive to our needs. We will definitely be coming back. Thank you.

If you're looking for the perfect getaway house away from all the tourist trappings this is the place. The house was located close to many beautiful family friendly beaches and we enjoyed them all. The home was very clean and had everything we needed. Lots of beach toys, towels and chairs. We were a group of 5 adults and 4 children and there was plenty of room. Our vacation was perfect and we can't thank Debbie enough for all she did in helping us arrange our wonderful stay at the house. We highly recommend this house.

I am writing this review from the great room of this amazing home! We are a family of seven (five teenagers/young adults, mom, dad) on our first Hawaiin vacation. I am so glad we found the Hali Pili Lani! First and foremost, the view is to die for. You might not want to leave the house! The home is clean and well stocked with all the necessities. We really appreciated the great room with a big dining room table and plenty of chairs for our big group. The main part of the home includes a great room, kitchen, three bedroom and a bath. What we didn't expect was the lower-level master suite. The master suite has a private entrance and isn't accessible from the main home. For a family with small children, this probably wouldn't work, but for us it was perfect! My husband and I are really appreciating the privacy.
The neighborhood beach is beautiful and just a short walk away. We spent one afternoon snorkeling there and plan on going back for more. The beach towels provided at the house were a wonderful bonus and kept us from having to bring our own or purchase some here. The washer and dryer were also great to have.
There is a strip mall just down the hill (walking distance) with a grocery store, movie theater and several restaurants. We loved the burgers at Seven Guys. The Polynesian Cultural Center is a short drive away. We are really enjoying the slower, laid-back pace of Laie.
Deb (one of the owners) was great to work with. We communicate several times via email and phone and she was always very prompt to respond and answer my questions. Bottom line: I would not hesitate to recommend the Hale Pili Lani and hope to return here again myself!
Amazing View, Great House!!

We rented this beautiful home for 7 nights. The view was breathtaking! We fell asleep to the crashing of the waves every evening! The home had great space for our family of 4 plus had my sister in law & brother in law and their daughter plus Nana!
It was kind of a trip to have one of the bedrooms with private bath down below the home but it was definitely private with our own lanie. Great having a washer and dryer. We used it every night for towels to prepare for the next day at the beach.
The beach was walking distance. Thanks for having sand toys. We found lots of ghost crabs at Temple Beach. So Fun!!
Grocery store was close by too. Everything is closed on Sunday in Laie so we planned ahead. Everyone in the town was so friendly! The home had wonderfully large windows which allowed for great light and had amazing cross breezes with the windows open!
We loved interacting with Deb. She made this whole experience so easy to set up. Very personable and helpful. Thank you so much!! We would definitely rent this home again.

Me and my family's first vacation trip to Hawaii and was very fortunate to find the PERFECT house to stay at for the week. The location at the North Shore gave you a feel of how the locals lived rather than the crowd at Honolulu. Shopping center literally down the street from the house and was 5 minutes away from the famous Giovanni shrimp truck, best beaches and one mile away from the Polynesian Cultural Center.
The pictures on this site does not do the place justice. The landscape was tremendously beautiful and well kept with all of the islands natural beauty. The house came with everything you need along with WiFi, two boogie boards, sand castle toys, beach mats, goggles/snorkling goggles and more.
AWESOME communication and GREAT detailed packet that answers all of your needs and questions. Being it our first time in Hawaii, we were truly at ease!!! Highly recommend this to my friends, family and anyone who truly want to experience Oahu at its fullest.
Look no more if you want to stay on O'ahu!

I've done the research for you. A spectacular house, just as the pictures show. The local beaches were the most beautiful I have ever seen, and I can't imagine where the crowds were, maybe Waikiki? Great location, close to the grocery store, quiet street, short drive to Sunset Beach to see the surfers and the historic town of Hale'iwa, where there are some great restaurants and shops. My family of nine had no problem fitting in, we could all sit at the table at one time. Can't beat the price either, very good value for this 'villa'. Very clean and well kept home. I miss it sooo much already and plan to return!
We're kama`aina (local) owners, born and raised in the islands. We lived and raised our family on the windward and north shores of Oahu for most of our lives.

“The photos tell the story of our property. Tranquility with a view. The well equipped and maintained home was designed for the view. You’re also only a short walk from La`ie Shopping Center and a short 1.7 mile drive to the Polynesian Culture Center, BYU, and the LDS Hawaii Temple . The world famous North Shore is right around the corner, 10 miles away. The house is secluded, away from the hustle and bustle of downtown Honolulu and Waikiki, but just an hour’s drive away. Our home sits up on a bluff over looking the blue, Pacific Ocean and though there is not direct beach access from the property, it’s just steps away from our street’s private access to a white sandy beach.”
