ALOHA FROM THE SUNSET BEACH HOUSE!!

**January 14th to 28th Special: Only $600/nt with 6 night minimum!!!!!**

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.

For your viewing pleasure the living room has a 46” Flatscreen HDTV featuring all the movie channels with stereo DVD, and there are Flatscreen TV/DVDs in all the bedrooms.

The home also has digital security and an electronic safe for your valuables.

In addition to the 3 inside baths there is a hot and cold 2 headed shower at the bottom of

the deck which is hidden by foliage, and is everybody's favorite place to shower and refresh after coming off the beach or after a long soak in the spa.

The kitchen is custom crafted in local island Koa hardwood and of course there is a Telephone, Cable, Wireless Internet (WiFi), iron, and all the other items you would commonly find in your own home.

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.

There are 4 bedrooms, and sleeps a maximum of 8 people.

Bedroom 1 - 1 King

Bedroom 2 - 1 Queen

Bedroom 3 - 2 Twins (can be made into a king upon request)

Bedroom 4 - 2 Twins (can be made into a king upon request)

Each bedroom is like a master bedroom. The master king bedroom upstairs looks out

to the beach and ocean. The downstairs queen master bedroom looks out to the

volleyball court and beach and ocean. Both of the other bedrooms feature views of

the lush greenery and mountains behind the home. The jungle like foliage comes down from the mountains and surrounds the home creating a unique feeling of privacy while looking out at the spectacular vistas of Sunset Beach, which is one of the most famous and

romantic beaches on Oahu, and certainly in all of Hawaii.

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.

Air Conditioning: Please be aware that our home is not air conditioned. Being on the beach, the trade winds that blow through our home provide all the air flow we need and perfect temperature most of the year. If you have questions please contact me anytime for more details.

We will happily provide you with any information or help that you need with securing any outside reservations or services that you may desire such as tours or activities, whale watching or snorkeling, etc.

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'. He didn't believe me at the time and thought it was just a young man's fantasy so he humored me because he was a great dad, 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 deck and view the beach and ocean, 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 North Shore Oahu

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 was 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

Harkins, Lakewood, Colorado.

Date Submitted: Jan 02, 2008 Date of Stay: Dec 2007

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

Polynesian Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Being from Oahu, I've stayed in many homes over the years. But The Sunset Beach House is truly magical and special. It feels like you've stepped into a Polynesian Paradise. Michel's home is beautifully furnished and decorated, and is walking distance to the best snorkeling on the island. The lanai that overlooks the ocean was where we spent every morning and evening. The house is next to a great bike/runner's path and walking distance to the 'Ehukai Pillbox Hike, which has panoramic views of the North Shore.

Everything about The Sunset Beach House is just PERFECT from beginning to end.

Mahalo Michel and Sid for a truly wonderful stay!

Thank you Michel for the use your home, it is an awesome location and lived up to expectations. We brought 8 people and didn't feel crowded in any way. A lot of thought went into this place and we couldn't have asked for more.

Beautiful Beach Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Michel, I can’t tell you what a great time we had! We have stayed at many houses on Sunset Beach, and I have to say we loved yours the best. Your house has such charm, nothing too fancy, but beautiful, comfortable, and everything you could possibly need for a great vacation. We barely left the house to be honest! The views were beautiful, the outdoor shower was perfect for us, and the fact that there was no one really around on the beach was exactly what we needed! The only bummer was that I could not figure out how to get the CD player to work, so I didn’t get to listen to your CD’s! The location to the store and shops was also a plus. It was the perfect vacation for us, and I can tell you, we plan on coming back next summer, and again in October. We have found our vacation rental, and we thank you dearly for everything! Take good care - your hospitality is much appreciated! "

Classic beach house

  • 5 of 5

Just spent a week at Michel's great beach house with my wife and two friends. Michel was very friendly and easy to deal from the outset. The house is a classic old A frame which is very clean, spacious and well maintained. The front verandah facing the sand has a great view and a private outdoor shower for washing off the salt water. Depending upon the size of the surf you may have to swim elsewhere although we swam right out front on several occasions. The road behind is a little noisy at times but we had no trouble sleeping. The spot is close to lots of other sights and amenities, some within walking distance but you will need a car.

Overall, a great place to experience the true north shore and unwind and good value if there are a few of you.

House if perfect!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I just returned from Oahu for a wedding. We had the luxury of traveling around the island and meeting up with family members that also rented houses in different locations. This house is by far the best!!! We could not even compare the privacy and views we had on the North Shore. Close to sharks cove for snorkeling, foodland (grocery store), Cliff jumping in waimea bay etc.....We had the best time and had awesome memories of this vacation. We stayed in Waikiki for 2 days and we almost cried missing the house in North Shore. Awesome memories and there is no other house I would even look to rent when we return. Michel and Sid became like friends while we stayed. Both are very responsive and very friendly!!! Now we are back on the mainland and still have our group txt going with pictures and memories. We will never forget this trip and hope to return next year!!!!

A quant place with the most epic of views!

  • 3 of 5

This place seemed like a classic local experience. The beach is quite beautiful without crowds and as promised beautiful sunset. While comfortable the humidity and heat in the summer without AC is important to note when booking for the summer. Lowlight was the slight feeling of the home being a bit worn and the sounds of the busy road right behind the house. Sitting on the front porch with coffee and wandering out to a beautiful beach, a highlight.

Owner's Response: I'm so happy this guest had a great time. We always do everything we can to please, but the road that goes around the island is not something I or any other beach houses can do anything about. All our driveways turn in off the road. Unless one has a boat to get to my home I'm afraid the road is there to stay..........and it never bothered me, I just consider myself so very lucky to have such a wonderful beach home, The Sunset Beach House! Aloha.
