Cynthia and I came to hawaii year after year,when We decided to buy our own little piece of paradise.All the decorating was done by Cynthia,from the choosing of furniture,to the pictures and all the small details.You too will feel at home here,just like We do.
Jerry Formulak purchased this condo in 2001
We choose the North Shore of Oahu,because of the quietness and away from the tourist crowd.The sleepy town of Waialua is like old Hawaii.We were awed by the inspiring view of the ocean when We entered the Condo for the first time.We knew immediatly that this was the place We wanted.
Morning walks on the uncrowded beach or on the nearby Bike path.Watching sunsets from the virtual lanai or sitting on the beach with a glass of wine as the sun dips into the ocean.
Jerry, my Wife and I wanted to thank you for the use of your beautiful condo in Hawaii. I trust that We left everything in acceptable order. We had a wonderful time. The Condo was great, and the view was a wonderful thing to wake up to each Morning. We made use of the cooler,beach chairs and umbrella. It is a great benefit having them on hand for gursts to use. You and your Wife have done a great job, decorating and providing very useful items that make the stay there effortless.
I cannot say enough how wonderful our time there was.
We thank you very much.
My wife, two babies, and our two adult friends stayed at the apartment for five days, and we all had a wonderful time.
The beauty of the place is in its details. For example, each day we enjoyed looking out the giant, panaromaic view and looking down on turtles playing in the shallows off the private beach for the apartment building. Similarly, we found the place very comfortable to live in because of Jerry and Cynthia's thoughtfulness. This began with their welcome bag, which was such a kind, generous, and personal touch that we felt immediately like we were staying in a freind's apartment instead of a stranger's.
We also found it very helpful and easy to enjoy their kitchen, which was beautifully clean and well stocked, as were the closets of fresh linen and towels. And we likewise appreciated the convenience of the closet full of beach toys, chairs, and blankets, as well as a playpen for the babies.
Of note, our two friends never needed to close the sliding door to create the second bedroom out of the living room as the master bedroom is sufficiently encapsulted sonically when its door is shut. So having adult friends spend almost a week in relatively close quarters with two babies in the apartment didn't prove too torturous for them, thankfully!
Also, the apartment in general is very quiet, both in itself and on its street. And it's an easy drive to nearby Haleiwa, for food and fun (and to see turtles on the state beach, which our older son loved).
In other words, this apartment was equipped for all of our needs, and we therefore couldn't have been happier with it. And we would definitely stay with Jerry and Cynthia again, especially as they are so warmly invested in providing a wonderful experience to their renters.
We had a wonderful stay. Beautiful view, with everything a family with two small children could ask for. Sleepng with the ocean breeze and sound of the waves was amazing. Full kitchen, which is great with small kids, much easier than packing up just to go eat. Beautiful beach and pool just an elevator ride down. There is shopping and many other beaches only minutes away. Having a washers and dryer was great, we actually came home with suitcases full of clean clothes. Plenty of towels and beach toys for the kids to use. We have already recommended this property to three other friends. Had a wonderful time and look forward to come back in the future!
Loved the condo. Condo has been 100% updated. Everything the owner stated about the condo was accurate. Great views! We would definitely recommend this condo and we would definitely stay here again!
Our family of four(2 adults/2 teens) rented this unit for 9 days/8 nights July 2016. First impression as we entered the unit and turned the corner to the oceanfront window: WOW! The view is stunning, unobstructed, right on the beach and located oceanfront in a peacefully quiet, mixed residential, rural type neighborhood. There was no retail(that we found) in walking distance but is a short 5-10 minute drive to shops/dining in Haleiwa or Waialua. The unit had everything we needed to be a "home away from home" for the week - it was tastefully furnished, very clean, well equipped, it provided everything we needed for a wonderful beach vacation from towels, to laundry detergent to beach chairs & snorkel gear. We were greeted with some local treats which we very much enjoyed and the kitchen was well-equipped with appliances, serving and cookware plus included use of basic seasonings, tea bags, condiments, etc. Deborah, the property manager, was very friendly, provided advice & quickly responded to all our needs during our stay. We did not use the building's pool or BBQ grill, however, they appear to be well-maintained and we did enjoy sitting on the patio or laying on the lawn, watching the stars at nighttime (except when others were there smoking cigarettes). The unit was comfortable for our family, though I would question whether it would accompany 6 guests. And even though we rented knowing that only fans were available and with explanation of the trade winds (many units in this area rely on only ceiling fans for cooling) we had some issues with absence of air conditioning. During our stay there was some atypical weather associated with a tropical storm, that produced increased humidity and heavy rains. When we were unable to open the doors for breeze because of rain, we learned one of the ceiling fans above the front room bed operates only on low speed and numerous tower fans did little to help the steam room feeling. A dorm-type portable air conditioner would be an asset to this unit, for those circumstances. Otherwise, we enjoyed the evening breezes, starlit nights, relaxed lifestyle... everything was great; it exceeded our expectations and we would recommend it to others. We made some wonderful memories, and enjoyed a peaceful, quiet and relaxing vacation. We hope to be fortunate enough to return some day!
The condo was beautiful and had everything we needed for our stay! The beds were comfortable and the five of us enjoyed our stay. A couple things I didn't like was the overall somewhat run- down condition of the entire building and area. The pool area and spa were aging and not particularly well cared for. However my daughter, son- in- law and granddaughter enjoyed the beach since the were usually the only ones down there. All in all it was a good home base for doing the things we planned on the island. The North Shore definitely has less traffic and less people so more conducive to relaxation.
This vacation has to be the best of my life. Our stay at Sunset Shores was one of the primary reasons I can say that. I loved that as we looked out the windows, all that can be seen is ocean. I even liked that there was no a/c. If there had have been, I never would have experienced how the trade winds can supply such cool, relaxing air. The condo was decorated beatifully and had everything we needed to enjoy the beach, grill, and pool. We enjoyed nearby Haleiwa and visiting the Waimea Valley. The only things I would have liked to have known prior to arriving or would add to make it even more comfortable: instructions for using the TV and DVD player and a full list of all the items in the kitchen including number of place settings. Other than that, there is little that could be improved upon. Deborah was very helpful and willing to help us any time we needed it. Thank you for such a wonderful experience!
