Enjoy the calming waves of Laie Bay in privacy, while still being in close proximity to your favorite vacation spots here in this beachfront getaway for two. Furnished with oceanic hues of blue, you will never feel far from the waters even after leaving the beach, with wooden carvings of dolphins and oars greeting you as you step into your new home. If you’re tired after a long swim, prop yourself on the ‘L’ shaped sofa for a short nap. Wash off the stubborn sand that is still sticking to you in the enclosed outdoor showers. You can toggle between hot and cold for the water temperature, and give yourself a proper scrub down with the soap bars available. Whip up a feast in the outdoor kitchen with the basic facilities of a stove, microwave, and coffee machine (for all you coffee addicts out there!).
Enjoy a humble al fresco meal with your loved ones by the dining table, shrouded with light filtered from the overhead canopy. Retire back to your room with a comfortable queen-sized bed kept cool with an electric fan for those sweltering summer afternoons. On slow summer days, laze by the outdoor lounge area and watch as the corals in front of the house attract lovable sea turtles surfing the waves. You can even swim with them as the waters are warm - so if you’re looking for something different this summer, pay J and Frazer a visit at their humble abode!
PRIVATE 1 BEDROOM BEAUTIFUL BEACH FRONTLaie, Hawaii, United States
Found at the end of a winding road by the flourishing kukui trees is this yurt for two, idly perched atop the hilltop overlooking Kaneohe Bay. The simple double bed is a comfortable retreat for tired explorers after a long day of traveling. Furnished with reclaimed Douglas Fir tongue and groove sliding floors, the yurt is a symbol of environmental consciousness built with the future of the ecosystem in mind. Using minimal electricity, the room is equipped with an electrical fan that will cool you down amongst the forest breeze.
If you find the interior a little stuffy, feel free to open up the windows (8 in total) for a whiff of fresh air. Spend the slow summer days away from civilisation by lazing on the hammock, facing the spectacular views of Kaneohe Bay while feasting like King Midas (minus the golden touch) on the homegrown passionfruit, fresh from the Susie and Jessie’s garden. If you find yourself woken by the pitter-patter of the rain, fret not as the yurt is fully waterproof, topped off with an acrylic dome that puts but a thin layer between you and the vast stretch of stars hanging behind the backdrop of flourishing acacia trees. Last but not least, you don’t need to be worried about the security of living in the arms of nature - the secure door handmade by Jessie will keep you safe so you can sleep to your heart’s content.
Secret Garden Yurt Over the Bay
Indulge yourself in a nice dip in the outdoor pools facing the cloudy horizons here in this quaint mountainside home in Kailua. The spacious kitchen area features an array of equipment for the everyday chef to cook up a storm! You can roll up some dough on the flat countertop and bake a simple midnight snack, or cook a simple meal by the electric stoves. The interior is well-ventilated, with the scents of the salty sea breeze. Fall asleep to the radiant glow of the moonlight by your side, and sink into the cushy queen-sized bed while snuggled up to your significant other. If you have any urgent work or emails to attend to, feel free to use the work table for a comfortable working environment.
