Custom tropical home in very quiet neighborhood , just steps away to world famous Sunset Beach, North Shore Oahu Hawaii. This home is a very unique design, custom made of exotic hardwoods, built in Bali Indonesia, then dismantled, packed, shipped and reassembled in Hawaii, 1993. It has custom cabinets and large LCD TV. High speed internet cable connection with wi-fi. The property is nestled between other homes, 3 blocks in from the highway. Just a short 45 minute drive from the Honolulu airport and Waikiki. The area is world famous for big wave surfing, spectacular sight seeing, whale watching and some of the most beautiful beaches on earth. Stroll to the beach (a 1 minute walk) to catch the endless stunning sunsets that give the area 'Sunset Beach' it's name.
Terrible furniture, completely worn out; not enough living room seating for 3 adults and 2 kids. Air conditioning ONLY in one of 3 bedrooms. Fully half of the lights did not have light bulbs in them when we arrived. THere were NO replacements in the house, the 'caretaker' had to come over with new bulbs. Then, most of the track lights did not function, the 'caretaker' had to work on them to get them to light up. ALSO- the dryer did not work when we arrived. We called, the 'caretaker' said it had just been working the Sunday before we arrived- despite the fact that the Start button was gone. He came 3 times, was not able to fix it, then told us the owner would buy a new dryer. I checked with him over the next 2 days, the new dryer was not provided, nothing ended up being fixed. There is no door on the upstairs bathroom, it's open to the bedroom. There was a leak in the drain in the downstairs bathroom, it also was not addressed while we were there (7 days).
- This place is ONLY suitable for surfers who are willing to put up with a crappy house and crappy furniture (and beds from the 1970s, and horrible parking) so they can be 1 block from the beach. For anyone else, it is NOT good enough, especially for families and kids.
When we arrived we were greeted by the manager Sean Wingate. A very nice and cordial guy. He took us around a bit and made us feel welcomed. We unloaded and headed for the beach. The walk wasn't too far and the beach was awesome for swimming especially with our 4 year old grand daughter. After getting back we had family and friends come over for dinner. The house has everything, grill pit outside, all the glassware, pots, etc you need.
The best part of the stay was the upper level Master Bedroom. The kids had the two bedrooms downstairs. With the prevailing trade winds blowing, it was very nice to sleep at night. No A/C required.
I would recommend this house to anyone and can't wait to get back.
