We had a fabulous time at Hale Pili Lani! My husband and I are alumni of BYU Hawaii and were excited to show our 3 children where we lived 12 years ago. We also had other family members with us and we all thought the house was very cute and the view was SPECTACULAR! The landscaping was beautiful and the decor was very nice. I'm sure it would be much harder to find something so quiet yet so close to the ocean in busy Waikiki. North shore is the best! We loved being within walking distance of the grocery store and other amenities. We walked out to Laie Point several mornings and watched the beautiful sunrise, and we snorkeled and played in the near by beaches, where we had lots of space to ourselves. Our kids loved playing on the grass and exploring the yard that extents out towards the ocean. The house was well stocked with kitchen supplies, towels, and beach supplies. We enjoyed walking around the Temple grounds and the BYU Hawaii grounds. We enjoyed the Polynesian Cultural Center. We drove to Waimea Bay and Haliewa several times and also snorkeled at Hanauma Bay and explored Waikiki, Pearl harbor, Lani Kai Beach, the Swap Meet, Diamond Head, and more. There was sooo much to do all around us! Some of our group chose to do a lot, and some choose to relax at Hale Pili Lani watching and listening to the waves. The only part that was a little difficult was that the walls upstairs are thin and don't go all the way up to the ceiling (which I'm assuming is for air flow when it's hot), and we had two babies with us so nap time and bed time were hard because the noise of everyone in the kitchen and family room would keep them awake. My sister brought a sound machine which really helped for them. We also had several adults of our group say the beds upstairs were hard. The kids in our group didn't seem to notice but the adults did. We really enjoyed our stay! Bob was very easy to work with and responsive.

Owner's Response: Mahalo for your wonderful review, Cristi. We're glad you a wonderful time. Yes, the high beam, open ceiling allows for better air flow during the summer months and so far, most folks seem to like a firm mattress, to each his own I guess. A hui ho.

Wedding party paradise

  • 5 of 5
We came to Oahu to get married. We decided to rent a house because our family never gets to see each other as we are spread out (Virginia and Arizona). Bob made this a stress free and relaxing wedding experience for us. Spending such a memorable occasion with our family has been amazing. We were able to be together in the same house and still have our privacy. The home is exactly as pictured, well maintained, clean and spacious. We could sit on the lanai all day and watch the waves. We did a lot of sight seeing and a few excursions while on the island. The windward side of the island is a lot calmer than Honolulu (as far as traffic goes) and is more our speed. Check out process was easy and Bob sent our deposit check so quickly, it was home waiting on us when we got there. Thank you Bob for making our wedding so memorable!! Mahalo!!

A piece of paradise

  • 5 of 5
I'm always a little skeptical about these sites, and rely heavily on previous I'll be detailed.

Hale Pili Lani was exactly as pictured. It was beautiful and spacious, clearly well maintained and loved. There was no mildew smell that frequently accompanies seaside homes.

There are three upstairs bedrooms with a comfortable couch (sleeper)...the downstairs portion is large and accessible only through the downstairs patio...which was perfect for us as a two family group. The rooms do have ceilings with gaps in between rooms...this was never a problem as it meant the airflow cooled the house down very quickly.

There is a beach about a five minute walk away...its a bit rockier than we liked so we chose to drive five minutes to a great beach (the one seen from the patio). This beach was great for swimming/sunning and body boarding. The house also has a ton of beach towels, body boards, and beach chairs for free use.

I would keep in mind that this house is about a 40 minute drive from Honolulu. We had rented a van from for about 400 bucks, so the drive was no biggie for us. The north shore is so much friendlier and less crowded than Waikiki, and I would much rather drive to see a select few things than stay in a crowded area.

The house is great and I would gratefully stay there again. However, what really made the experience so lovely and easy are its owners Bob and Barbara. They are so friendly and easy to work with. I never felt I was inconviencing them with questions, and they were happy to help me with whatever I needed. They happily keep open lines of communications with their renters. The cleanup process was easy and simple and Bob sent my refunded deposit immediately.

Their home is a chunk of paradise that helped make our dual family vacation great. I would happily stay there again and recommend them to anyone who wants a worry free trip to Hawaii.

Where do you live?

Excellent experience!

This place was wonderful, and just as presented. The views are fantastic, especially from the master suite. Beds were comfortable with nice linens. Kitchen was very clean with all the accoutrements for home cooking. Bathrooms were clean with good water pressure. We stayed with five people with plenty of room to spare. Location in Laie is great for relaxing. Very quiet and close to the North Shore. Easy walk to Laie point. A bit of a drive to SE Oahu/Honolulu, but very pleasant. Backing out of the driveway was an adventure, but very doable. Several reasonable local restaurants. We were big fans of North Shore Tacos in Hauula. Foodland is walkable and has most of your grocery needs. Temple Beach is walkable and nice. Lots of kite surfers (fun to watch!). Owner Bob was affable and available for questions. Very responsive. Overall a great experience. Would definitely recommend this property, and would stay there again in a heartbeat.

We had a wonderful time at this property. We stayed at Turtle Bay the previous three nights with the resort type feel so when we arrived here we dialed our clock back immediately. It was extremely relaxing for us. Although it was only my wife and I the accommodations would be terrific for a family. December on the North Shore can be unpredictable with weather and we had a couple of days of rain during our stay. The house was perfect for us during this wet period. The views, the changing oceans and the walk to the point were the best. I would recommend this to anyone.

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
Bob there isn't enough words to describe how much we enjoyed staying at your house. The views from the lanai and even from inside the house are so beautiful. I can still hear the waves from inside my head. The neighbors are so quite we felt we were there by our self. When we arrived and went into the house we found the house meticulously clean. I hope we left the same way we found it. We had a family of seven there was enough sitting spaces for us to sit down at the dining room table and have our meals together as a family. We even had our Thanksgiving dinner there at the house. We could not have had more beautiful views or sounds of the waves any where else to celebrate our Thanksgiving dinner. I have nothing bad to say about this house. It was clean, the views are beautiful, the surroundings are so quite, the sounds of the birds so beautiful, the gardens are so beautiful. I would recommend this house with out hesitation to anyone. Bob thanks for sharing your house with us. There is not enough words to let you know how much we enjoyed our self at your house. Hope to see next year again. Mahalo and Aloha

From the Owner

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. We just ungraded our beach house with a upgraded outside surfboard shower and a new deck featuring high end composite decking, solid wood ipe post and rail and stainless steel cabling provide an even greater view
