Sunset Beach House Rental Photos and Description
House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 2-8)
ALOHA FROM THE SUNSET BEACH HOUSE!!
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!

About Michel Rubini
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
Why Michel Rubini chose Sunset Beach
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.
What makes this house unique
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. ------------

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
