Eric's place was awesome! Exactly how it was in photos and described. Location was great for my friend and I, we had a car and were out and about exploring for most of the 3 days we stayed. We used the Snorkel gear, boogie boards and beach towels, which were all there in our room ready for us to use. Didn't get a chance to use the BBQ, portable stove top is best for making smaller portion things, but for the most part we ate out :) Eric is so friendly and helpful, definitely coming back here in future, such a lovely place.
Oh, my, this was heaven on earth! We were staying on Oahu to show our son the University of Hawaii. The hustle and bustle of Waikiki was not where my husband and I wanted to be. Staying in Laie was perfect! Eric and his family were great. Easy to contact and very responsive to our needs. They were all very friendly and welcoming.
The space has the feel of a cabin, which was fine by us. We got up every morning to watch the sunrise: in the yard, out on the point, or on the beach. All fantastic places to greet the day. We were there in February, many of the beaches were very crowded. The beach by "our house" was very private and quiet all week. Beautiful swimming and sunbathing. Eric provides snorkel equipment that we took advantage of and experienced some great snorkeling. There is a great horseback riding place 2 minutes away: Gunstock Ranch. Shopping and food are not far away. Fun food trucks just north. Everyone we met in the area was very nice to us.
The bed was very comfortable. The room was clean and amazingly bug free! Our son was fine on the futon.
The only drawback to the room is that there is a large step up into the bathroom (about 18 inches); no problem for us but could be difficult for some. I didn't like having one sink for both kitchen and bathroom washing, but it was not so bad that it interfered with my stay.
Thanks for everything family Orr - we had a great time!!
We enjoyed our stay at this cottage like studio. Great location, a short 5 min walk to a beautiful beach and a short drive to various other beaches up the North Shore. The studio was clean & comfortable, cooking facilities limited for those who like to cook. We enjoyed the covered patio and use of the BBQ. We appreciated the little extras like snorkel gear, boogie boards & beach towels. Great ocean view & whale watching from the lawn front patio, no views from the studio itself. A 10 min walk to grocery store & movie theatre. Thank You Eric & Patti for your hospitality!
If you are looking for a great escape, quiet area close to various amenities, this cottage studio it worth a visit.
Eric was a great host and very friendly. He was flexible with me on checking in when my plans changed and I didn't reach the studio till after dark my first night. The studio itself is simple and tidy and was perfect for what I needed. I rented a car and parking was never a problem. And the view!!! One in a million! Saw several whales pass by while I sipped my morning coffee with Dot the dog's sweet company. Would happily stay again the next time I need a place to crash after full days of exploring the island. Mahalo, Eric!
Eric and his family were very welcoming and were great hosts. The studio itself is nice and clean but nothing fancy. The location and view were excellent as indicated in the photos. The location is nice if you wish to be away from the crowds of Honolulu and nearer to the north shore.
The studio was great and Eric and his family were very welcoming. The view is killer and the beach (only a short walk away) is great for snorkeling. Snorkel gear was provided, which was awesome. My fiancé and I live in town and just needed a weekend away, and this was the perfect escape! Did I mention that there is a hot tub and a fire pit?! It was perfect. I'm sure we will be back the next time city life becomes a bit too much.
A great spot close to the culture centre and a 30 second walk to the point and 5 minute walk to supermarket. View on picture is from the main house and studio is located behind main house. The Studio is basic so suites the budget traveller. May need a few repairs here and there and a good clean but otherwise serviceable for our needs. We were welcome to use the laundry which is located next to studio so we weren't bothering the family. The main bed is huge and comfortable, but my daughter wasn't too keen on the futon.
My daughter and I spent a week at Eric's place. We had a great time there, and kept to ourselves because we wanted to just chill out. The location is fantastic, near shrimpshacks, fast food restaurants, icecream place and Foodland supermarket. Also near rocky beach as well as another private sandy beach. Perfect for a laid back vacation. The place was very comfortable, with good amount of supplies for simple meals. It is basic but again if what you want is a quiet relaxing time, this is absolutely the place for you. Excellent washer and dryer so you do not have to pack too much clothes!
Eric Orr made us feel welcome, the listing description was accurate, the neighborhood was quite. We enjoyed our stay, and definitely go back again, soon. THANKS, again.

Great place in the the North shore, location is secluded, yet close to many attractions including the Polynesian Cultural Center.
The room itself doesn't have an ocean view, but an amazing sunrise is just a few feet away.
Extremely clean and the extras make this the place to stay.
Eric and Patty were great guest. They left the apartment clean and in good repair and were easy to communicate with. We would be happy to work with them in the future.
