THE SUNSET BEACH HOUSE. OAHU'S FAVORITE VACATION BEACH PARADISE!

Sunset Beach House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 2-8)

ALOHA FROM THE SUNSET BEACH HOUSE!!

Special Surprise Offer!!

SEPTEMBER 21 TO OCTOBER 3 ONLY $650/NT:

(MUST RENT AT LEAST 10 OF THE 12 NIGHTS)

Perfect for 2 to 8 people, located on the sand at Sunset Beach (on the main island of Oahu), this exotic, Polynesian-style house is one of the best values for a relaxing, exciting vacation in one of the most beautiful, natural settings the islands have to offer. The home has 4 bedrooms & 3 bathrooms, and sleeps up to 8 persons with comfort & ease.

My home is located right on the sand at Sunset Beach, on the main island of Oahu, about 1000 feet down from Pipeline, one of the world's most famous surfing spots. The beach in front of my house is gorgeous and is hardly used as there is no public access to it close to my home. The home has four bedrooms and three bathrooms. There is a Jacuzzi on the deck overlooking the beach and my own private volleyball/badminton court is right along side of the house, as you can see in the aerial photo on my website.

The house is less than ten minutes from the historic whaling town of Haleiwa, which is the main town on the north shore of Oahu. It has lots of restaurants, shopping, a marina (in case you would like to go deep sea fishing), and live entertainment nightly in some of the restaurants. The Turtle Bay Hilton is about five miles away from the house in the other direction, and they feature two championship GOLF courses, horseback riding, and a disco.

There is a wonderful Foodland Supermarket about a half mile from the house which also sports a Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf (formerly Starbucks). All the Island activities, from hangliding to scuba diving, from polo matches to jet-skis are all just minutes away from my tropical retreat. The water is crystal clear and the snorkeling is great. SCUBA diving is also a major attraction on the north shore with both boat and shore dives available. Waimea Falls is only a mile away, and hiking at Waimea Valley and visiting the falls is an unforgettable experience.

The house is my own personal residence and is beautifully furnished in rattan and antiques. You'll see pictures on the walls of stars like Suzanne Somers and David Carradine who have stayed and relaxed here.

Lush foliage surrounds the house and the sound of the wind and the waves will remain in your memories for years to come.

YOU WON'T HAVE TO bring anything except your Swimsuit and a Smile to have a Great Time!

Aloha from Your Owner!

Christmas 2007 at the Sunset Beach House

Christmas 2007 at the Sunset Beach House!

Incredible!! From the moment we walked in we were in love with the house,

large deck overlooking the ocean, and a few steps and we were on the

beach. The house was everything we had hoped it to be and more. Fully

equipped and set up for our every need. The sunsets were incredible, the

hot tub relaxing and it was easy travel to anyplace we wanted to go. Had

Christmas Eve dinner at Haleiwa Joes Seafood Grill on the outside patio (

wonderful)and church following dinner. Ted's bakery down the road is

wonderful and the grocery store very convenient. Visited Pearl Harbor, Dole

Pinapple, and snorkeled at Sharks Cove. Spent Christmas day laying on the

beach and collecting sea shells. Doesn't get any better. We highly

recommend this home to other travelers looking for an awesome vacations. I

know we plan to return in the future. Aloha! S

Hi, I'm Michel Rubini. the very happy owner of The Sunset Beach House. I am a musician by trade, and I have been playing piano since I was 3 years old. I came to Hawaii with my father for the first time when I was 18 and have had a mad love affair with the islands ever since. I told my father at the time, 'Dad, one day I am going to live here', and he answered with a little chuckle, 'Yes son, of course you will'. I don't think that he believed me at the time, but several years later when I was a little more grown up, I came back and bought my wonderful home on Sunset Beach and I have been coming to the islands ever since. To be able to sit on my terrace and view the beach and ocean and listen to the sound of the birds and waves is a wonderfully relaxing experience that I look forward to every morning that I am here. I am very happy to be able to share my little piece of Heaven with you. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. Aloha, Michel

Michel Rubini purchased this house in 1975

When I was first looking for a home to buy in Hawaii I was not familiar with the islands, so I decided to travel to all of them to learn about them and to see what each of them offered. I discovered after visiting the outer islands that Oahu was the very best of all of them. The best part of course is that I found the best beach in all of the islands, Sunset Beach, which was the best kept secret in all the islands. Nobody knew it existed there on the North Shore except for the local islanders, and they were not telling anybody. I was taken there by a very friendly local, and when I saw the beautiful, white pearly sand beach in front of my house and the exotic, secluded location, and also being only 1 mile from the biggest waterfall on the island, Waimea Falls, I fell in love immediately.

My Home Has the unique advantage of being the very last home on a frontage road, and because of that I have only one neighboring house on my left side, which is hidden from view by a 30' hedge of island vegetation. On the right side of my home I have my private volleyball and badminton court, and then there is just state land for about 300 yards before the start of the next frontage road. For that reason, my home has a great feeling of privacy and tranquility with unsurpassed views of the beach and ocean. I never feel 'boxed in' like the other beach houses. ********************* I Found Out that I could be just as secluded as I wanted on the most beautiful beach in all of Hawaii, or I could enjoy a bounty of cultural and ethnic delights not found anywhere else in the islands. It was just up to me to decide what I would do on any given day, be a sun worshiper on the beach, or join in the party that is always going on around the rest of the island. *********** The Ancient Hawaiians considered this location to be a spiritual spot on the island and held many ceremonies here on the beach, and also carved hieroglyphics into the beach rocks (which you can see at certain times of the year when the tide is low). It is considered to be a location of considerable archaeological significance and is also believed to be a very spiritual place by the Hawaiians. *********************** Oahu Is as beautiful and varied as any of the other islands, but also has the advantage of being able to go to wonderful restaurants, movies, nightclubs and concerts. The main history of Hawaii plays out on Oahu, and the Bishop Museum, the USS Arizona Memorial, the 'Iolani Palace, which is the only true royal palace in the United States and the last official residence of the kings and queens who ruled Hawaii, King Kalakaua and Queen Kapiolani, are all must sees during your visit here to Oahu. ------------

Unbelievable Vacation!

  • 5 of 5
This was the best family vacation ever! Sunset Beach House is all that was expected and much, much more! The home is fully equipped with every possible amenity anyone could require. The privacy, scenery, and the incredible ambiance of the house were all extraordinary. After the World Cup final on Sunday, the TV was never on except for music. Snorkeling just down the beach at Three Tables was far better than Hanauma Bay and thrilled everyone. I can't say enough about the entire experience, and Sid was very attentive, especially before and after the big storm Saturday night! It was all fabulous!

Celebration of Marriage

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful time our family had!!! After two trips, one to Honolulu and and one to Kailua, we knew that everything we wanted was on the North Shore. Haleiwa, where we kayaked, snorkeled, jet skied, paddled boarded and body surfed. My Grandson and daughter-in-law took surfing lessons at Turtle Bay and were both successful and riding the waves. Granddaughter loved horseback riding in Haleiwa and at Turtle Bay. Son and Grandson got to play golf twice, once at Turtle Bay. We loved all the Shrimp Shacks, shaved ice, and our favorite was Ted's....best bakery ever!! Being there to celebrate our 50th Anniversary, we enjoyed seeing many weddings right in front of the Beach House. In the 14 days we were there, we cheered 8-10 couples. Once we realized that this was a popular place for pictures, every Bride and Groom got a bottle of Champagne from the Burkell Family. I believe we toasted 6 couples. We now have many pictures of our trip to Paradise to share with family and friends. Mahalo, Lu and Dick"

We celebrated our 50th anniversary at Sunset Beach House and brought along both of our sons and their families. Everyone had a great time, including our 6-year old grandson who spent the afternoons looking for geckos on the patio. The home was lovely and all of us had a great time. The owner said all we need to bring is a smile and a bathing suit and he was correct.

We had a wonderful time at the house. It was everything and more. Great location, view, comfortable. Words and pictures can't do it justice. We stayed for 10 days and should have stayed longer. I can't say enough how great it was except that we will most surely return soon

Paradise every day

  • 4 of 5
We loved the location of the house, right on the beach, could not have been better!
Very close to Turtle Bay.
It would help to have ceiling fans in all the rooms. The small fans don't do that much.
Also all the windows need a good cleaning very dirty!!
Starbucks is no longer in the Foodland grocery store it is Coffeebean and tea leaf

Owner's Response: To all my guests (past and upcoming)
As the owner I always ask for, encourage and appreciate, corrective critiques. I always hope, and strive for, 5 out of 5 reviews.

This last review was a 4 out of 5. I have taken this very seriously. As my guest said ..."We loved the location of the house, right on the beach, could not have been better!"

It is true my accommodations are right on the beach. The sea salt does tend to leave a film of salt on the windows (we have tried every product on the market, from the toughest ones to the eco friendly ones). Try as we might it is an ongoing problem, the sea salt is a tough one to fight. I have always personally thought though....that is not too high a price to pay for oceanfront.

This is the first time anyone has ever mentioned the fans not being sufficient. As a very conscientious home owner I will certainly take a very serious look at this. I will start by checking with all guests that have stayed in the last two years. If they too felt there was a problem I will be doing something to rectify this immediately. My guests happiness is of extreme importance to me.

Also, no one is more upset than me that Starbucks is gone. I am like the rest of the world, I can't even begin to think about starting my day without a good cup of coffee! (i will update my notes to Coffeebean).....

Lastly, I want everyone to leave my accommodations with nothing but rave 5 out of 5 reviews. I hope I can achieve that goal going forward.
Aloha,
Michel Rubini

Dream House

  • 5 of 5
If you're looking for a top oceanfront private beach home, look no further!!
Our family of 5 loved every minute and wish we could have stayed longer. We did other activities and shopping that required driving to the other side of the island (Waikiki) but we made sure we got back to enjoy the beautiful sunset every night and had some wonderful dinners out on the spacious sun deck. It's breathtaking!
The beach is just footsteps away down a private path to the world famous Sunset Beach.
If you're looking for a dream house, this is it!!
It's almost like a private beach as we didn't see too much of a crowd at all during our full stay.
Cool outdoor beach volleyball court on the side of the house as well with lots of beach sand toys for the kids as well.

thanks Michael for sharing your home with us!

Love808 family!!
