About the Owner

Unfortunately, I had a stroke in 2009 from the pressures of my work. I was forced to retire and to learn to walk and talk again. I'm so blessed with a new life and a wonderful outlook. I want to share the beauty of my home for others to enjoy. It's for sale as well, since I am limited on my ability to travel as I am taking care of my 86 yr old Dad.

Huge disappointment for us.

  • 2 of 5

Pros:

• Victoria and Martha were wonderful – friendly, patient, helpful.

• Extremely clean, well maintained and very well supplied, we only had to buy food.

• Convenient location across from Polynesian Center and restaurants with grocery ¼ mile away.

• Apt. is ocean side as advertised with beautiful ocean views but at high tide there is no beach, see below.

Cons:

• High tide – There is no beach at all as large waves roll in and completely inundate the beach. Too rough to swim or walk on either side of reef. So, 50% or more of the time we had no beach and the water was too rough to be usable. So what good is being at seaside?

• Low tide - Beach has a rock reef 20 yards off shore and water inside reef is only knee deep. Good for kids, adults can only wade. On other side of reef water was about waist deep but bottom totally covered with rough, jagged lava rock. We tried to snorkel but after 30 mins. our knees/ankles were bruised and scraped. Also we saw nothing - no fish, no coral - just barren rock.

• No A/C – don’t believe those who claim you don’t need it. When trade winds blow main apt. is almost tolerable - when they don’t, like when we were there, it’s a sweat box. Especially the bathroom which has only one tiny window. After taking a shower it was sweltering, but we did visit in August.

• Location – we love to hike and apt. is squashed in among other buildings so only place to walk was along extremely busy highway. Noisy and quite ugly commercial/residential scenery as well.

• We also love to walk the beach for miles. Bathtub Beach stretches 100 yards to the south and then disappears under a small cove. To the north after wading through a channel it only goes about 100 yards before it’s blocked by a cement pier. Very limited beach walking.

Conclusion:

Simply not what we were hoping for. Could’ve had condo at Turtle Bay with A/C, protected cove for swimming/snorkeling, miles of beach to walk, and large open grounds for hiking. And condo we looked at there was cheaper. We simply chose poorly.

Wonderful vacation to Hawaii

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the Studio August 10th-15th. Everything was as described. The studio is small as has been mentioned, but very adequate for two people.

Martha was very helpful and pleasant at all times. The location is great. We thoroughly enjoyed our "neighbors" in the next unit and would love to stay again.

You will not be disappointed if you choose Victoria's property.

cute and quaint

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this cute little studio in Laie. It was the perfect size with everything in one room. Clean and well looked after with manager next door. Loved the beach access and the views. I would liked to have had more of a privacy covering on the back door, but the sound of the ocean couldn't be beat. You feel safe with the cameras in the front and back and you don't have to worry about anything.

Lovely get away

  • 5 of 5

Peaceful, Beautiful location, cute studio and very nice manager. Will definitely come back. Only thing to consider is lack of air conditioning, the studio does get rather warm, so if you like it real cool, you may reconsider.

We loved this place!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent a few days here and absolutely loved it. Location was outstanding, right next to the PCC and the ocean and beach were right outside our back door. We fell asleep each night to the sound of the ocean waves. It was very clean and property was well maintained. The breezes were enough to keep up cool. It had everything we needed to enjoy our stay on the North Shore. I will definitely come back to this place again. Martha was so kind too!

It was a lovely studio with great views of the ocean.

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I were thrilled with the vacation studio during our recent stay in Laie. It was clean, comfortable, convenient to the PCC , family and friends, and had everything we needed for a lovely holiday. Best of all, being right on Bathtub Beach was really nice and Martha the manager was great and made us feel at home. My only advice is to make sure you are not planning to make any changes before booking as we tried to cancel within 24 hours after booking to stay with family who were not initially going to be there in Hawaii, but because of how payments are made a refund wasn't going to happen and we didn't want to waste a lot of money so opted to leave the reservation. While we were initially frustrated with the payment experience

It all worked out as we had a memorable holiday before flying to Kona.
