We had a fun time vacationing on the North Shore.
Pluses: Nice location. Across the street from the beautiful Hukilau beach. Close to the Polynesian Cultural Center. Short drive to North shore shopping, turtle bay, wiamaea falls and botanical gardens. Condo was clean and felt homey with comfortable beds. Ocean view from the front deck.
Minuses: Narrow drive way off of a busy road. Be careful. Stove is aged but still useable. We did not spend much time at the condo so we were not looking for anything elaborate. It fit our needs perfectly. It is on the second floor with steps , so the condo is not handicap accessible.
If you are looking for the relaxed easy going feel of the north shore this is a good place to stay.
We normally stay at the Hilton in Honolulu but we needed a place for the weekend before we went back there and we were so happy to find this place. It's Affordable, family-friendly, clean but rustic. Plus we were close to the North Shore and got to explore all the wonderful beaches there. Hukilau beach is across the street. It is a good Walking distance to shops and the Polynesian cultural Center. If you drink wine or beer purchase it before you come into Laie. The town is dry.
