Welcome to the Best Location in the Islands! Sunset Shores, with over 150 feet of beachfront, is located at the heart of the world-famous North Shore and the mecca of surfing. Sunset Point, the most spectacular white sand beach and surf break on the planet, is just steps from your door. 'Sunset,' directly in front, is the second Jewel of the Triple Crown of Surfing and home to several contests in the winter months. 'Kammie Land' and 'Rocky Point' and the world famous 'Backyards' are the adjacent surfing and windsurfing spots. These world-class surfing breaks are consistently ride-able during the winter months (October through March), while the calm serene summers (April-September) generally provide Sunset Beach with calm, crystal clear water for swimming, skin-diving, scuba, and kayaking. “Mothers Beach” or “Shores” is where children can enjoy a wonderful swimming area protected by the sunset reef while tiny shorebreak waves caress the clean, white sand beach.
Thanks to the refreshing tradewinds that blow out to sea, summer temperatures rarely exceed 85 degrees F while year round water temperatures range comfortably between 75-80 degrees F. There’s fantastic sailing, windsurfing, kite-surfing, whale-watching, snorkeling, shell collecting, and beachcombing on miles of expansive white sand beaches. Hiking, mountain biking, and equestrian trails are found in the Koolau Mountains and nearby Turtle Bay Resort just minutes from the backdoor. Bicycles and a variety of water sports equipment are available in a secure storage area. Three golf courses, fabulous restaurants, entertainment, and world class shopping in the famous town of Haleiwa are only a 10 minute drive away by car or city bus.

We have been home a month from our wonderful vacation here on Sunset Beach, but I couldn't let another day go by without "singing our praises" about this beautiful vacation rental. There were 14 of us looking for a vacation that would be relaxing, fun, and entertaining! This oceanfront home truly fit the bill! We enjoyed all 7 days in this home--grandparents plus 3 families & 7 of our 8 grandchildren (ages 17 down to 2 yrs). The house accommodated all of us with ease...the home is very spacious; thus, we were never on top of each other. There were 2 large dining tables, and the bar in the kitchen allowed for even more space. We planned our meals beforehand & shopped at Costco on the way from the airport! Miriam had the house all ready for our arrival, so we could unpack, unload the food, & hit the beach. The children (& adults!) had the beach at their fingertips (steps away) as well as the jacuzzi & cabana. Then, when they wanted to play a game of soccer or touch football, the yard provided the grassy area for that! There was something for everybody--walks, hikes, bike-rides, runs, or a car ride to Waimea Bay, Turtle Bay, the Polynesian Cultural Center (where we went for the dinner-luau), or the Turtle Bay Beach Club where we had a lovely dinner. Our grandkids loved their afternoons of zip-lining, going to Turtle Bay to observe the large turtles, jumping off "The Rock" at Waimea Bay, their surf lesson, or the morning "Swim with the Sharks!" Then, there was the daily afternoon visit to Shave Ice! I am usually ready to return home after being gone, but I can honestly say I would have stayed another week without hesitation! It was the best thing my husband and I have done with our family, vacation-wise! Now, you guessed it...everyone is saying, "Are we going back in 2016?!" I think you know the answer!
I just stayed here for a week with 13 other family members, to include a 2 yr old and five other children, and couldn't have asked for a better house/location. The house met all our expectations and provided the perfect spot for a family vacation. You pretty much have your own private beach in the backyard with a nice little shore break in the summer months that the kids had a blast playing in for hours at a time. Right out back are two nice surf breaks that you can surf when it's good as well. When you come back to the house you have the jacuzzi to relax and warm up if you happen to get a bit chilly. The yard was perfect for the kids to kick/throw balls around and have a great time when they weren't swimming. The kitchen had everything we needed and we managed to eat almost all of our meals at home together. The house is big enough that you aren't on top of each other and there is plenty of space for everyone to feel comfortable and relaxed. You are close to Waimea, Turtle Bay, Shark's Cove, Zipline and the town of Haleiwa for shopping when needed. I would highly recommend this house for anyone looking for a relaxing vacation at an amazing beach away from the hustle and bustle of the more crowded beaches elsewhere.
Our family has stayed at many vacation rentals in Hawaii before, this one was diffidently a GEM!. We found the house to be very clean and well kept. The linens were fresh and even the outside of the house was in order. Not only is this house right on an incredible sandy beach, it has a fabulous private yard with a cabana, bar and jacuzzi, hard to find a place with privacy right on the beach we felt very secure there. The beach was great for all ages, surfing, swimming and just relaxing. The kids loved the bike path and would ride to Ted's Bakery in the morning to bring home their famous pastries. The view from the lanai is breathtaking, never wanted to leave. The house is so well stocked with everything you could possibly want or need. Bikes for the bike path close by, beach chairs and toys and the kitchen has it all. We have a multi family vacation every year and everyone wants to come back to this special place at sunset beach.
We spent Christmas in this lovely home, and when I say "we" I mean ten adults and five babies aged 3 and under! We brought our whole family and really had a fantastic time. The view is amazing and we spent hours watching the pro surfers on the big waves. The home is laid out is such a way that couples can spread out and have a little privacy when needed. We were so happy with the way it worked.
The hot tub was wonderful, and the immediate access to the beach was so convenient for little ones. There were fun bikes to ride but not much else for activities, so we asked about it and Miriam brought over some inflatables and a beach umbrella. She was very willing to do whatever we asked. The only negative comment I have is that for that amount of money (it was Christmas so we paid the top dollar) I felt the home should be in a bit better repair. The screens were off the tracks, the TV remote didn't work, and the home was not quite as clean as I would have hoped. But when you are out on that fabulous balcony, or listening to the waves crash all night, those little things matter very little. It's a one-of-a-kind home ~ we'll treasure the memory of our vacation there! All of our kids said it was the best vacation they ever had.
My family of ten (8 adults, 2 small children) enjoyed an amazing vacation in June 2013. The house was perfect and lived up to all the descriptions in the VRBO ad by both the owner and previous guests. Great beachfront location, ocean views from most every room, spacious, room for everyone hot tub, a house with every amenity you could ask for. But what really made the vacation special for me was the ease of working with Miriam. She understands that being on vacation is special and has gone out of her way to make sure that all you have to do is show up and enjoy! She is just a phone call away if you need her. We wanted to use the bikes and one had a flat tire, she had someone there to take care of it within minutes.
We vacation in Hawaii every year and usually use VRBO for rentals, in the past we have had lists of things that need to be done before leaving, but not so with this rental! I called to ask what needed to be done and she said “the only thing you have to do is have fun!” How refreshing!
The whole rental process is made simple. There are no extra charges; the price you pay per night includes everything, taxes, cleaning fees and so on. We’ve reserved a spot for next year and the whole family can hardly wait to get back to our Hawaii home, even though it’s only ours for a week.

I have stayed twice and each time we had a fantastic time! The location is great, the house big and it is right on the beach! This location has me continually rethinking my Marlin Fishing trips to the Big Island!
