About Martha

I came to Hawaii to go to school and play tennis for BYU Hawaii. I got married and had 6 kids and we just finished a new house. We put a 2 bedroom apartment on the side of it to be able to pay our huge Hawaii mortgage.

Martha purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Martha chose Laie

We bought this property because the lot was big and we wanted to build a house. After 3 years of hard work, we finally did it!!

What makes this apartment unique

It's on a park and between the mountains and the beach. My husband and I work at BYU Hawaii and it's 3/4 a mile away. We love Laie and this area.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This place was fantastic! It was a brand new 2 bedroom, and right in the heart of Laie. The family was so helpful and welcoming. The rental is on the main level of a family home, and it was as nice, if not nicer, than a hotel stay. They had everything we needed in a home away from home, laundry included (a huge perk to the constant beach goer!). Also- if you've never stayed on the east/north shore, this place is perfect, its a perfect distance to every exciting and beautiful thing to do on the north shore, while being close to the grocery store, as well as places to eat. We now consider this family to be our friends, and will most definitely be renting this place out again the next time we come to the island!

Exactly what we needed

  • 5 of 5

Banana Bungalow was perfect for our two night stay in Laie. The accommodations were simple but clean and comfortable. We felt right at home. Everything we needed was available. We were walking distance from the best breakfasts in town and a 5 minute drive from PCC. We enjoyed being in the center of the community, away from crowds of tourists. It gave us a feel of the real Hawaiian life. I would definitely stay here again.

Charrming place to stay on the North Shore.

  • 5 of 5

My family really enjoyed this place. My boys enjoyed walking down to Hukilau Beach, and up to the temple. It is right next to a park with basketball courts and lots of grass. Two of my boys had taken their baseball mitts, so it was the perfect place for them to play catch. Laie is a great small town away from all the hustle and bustle in Honolulu. Martha was great and very accommodating. I would definitely recommend this place if you're looking to get away and enjoy the North Shore. There is also a great little café down the road.... Hukilau Café, wonderful food at a great price .

Clean, well stocked apartment, awesome landlord

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the Banana Bungalow. Martha was awesome to work with and we had everything we needed there. It is only about a block away from our favorite beach on the north shore as well. I would highly recommend staying here and we hope we can come back again soon.
