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.

Awesome accommodations on Northwest Shore

The condo was fantastic. Very clean, comfortable, and the gift upon arrival of snacks and coffee were much appreciated! The beach is great - very private and great snorkeling and turtle watching right out back. I would highly recommend this condo for anyone looking for a relaxing Hawaiian vacation away from Honolulu, but also away from the heavy North Shore traffic in the winter time.

This place is a really amazing find. After searching countless condos on VRBO, I came down to 2 choices and I went with this one. The photos are exactly what the place looks like, but of course even better to see it in person. The first thing you notice is it very well kept and clean, then you walk into the kitchen and living room and you'll see the ocean. It's a surreal feeling once you've opened the window and step out on the small ledge. (there is no "lanai" here, at least not a large one where you can sit outside, what they have is a sliding door window that opens up to a small ledge where you can stand and look outside. But we didn't miss anything because the owner has a dining table where you can sit and eat, drink and look out the window to the ocean. The trade winds and the sound of the waves hitting against the beach head was enough to put me in another state of mind. It's really relaxing and being from the City in the mainland, I rarely get to experience this. We saw turtles on the beach a few houses down, we took many strolls at all hours and felt safe at all times. There's a BBQ downstairs and a pool too. I would recommend snorkeling at a different location however because the reef is pretty sharp and there are too many rocks and seaweed to slip on. About 1/4 mile down there's an open space with plenty of room for good snorkeling. On Oahu, we got food from all the local shops and stores. I would say that we shopped at perhaps every single store in the North Shore and some. We also ate at several restaurants and of course tried the shaved ice at Matsumoto's..twice..and I bought a shirt there! There's 2 Whole Foods on the island, we went to both, both quite expensive, but you know that. We saw plenty of rainbows and it rained on occasion, the island has its own micro climate. We did the touristy thing, laid out on the beach in Waikiki on the other side of the island one day, then hiked up Diamond Head, then hiked up Koko Crater which was utterly insane!!! but we made it to the top! it was quite the accomplishment and the views up there are second to none. We experienced a lot of wonderful sights and this place was always nice to come back to when we explored the island. It's well kept, clean, non-smoking, non-partying, quiet and safe. There's also lots of good utensils and cooking stuff to get your meals on. I left a new bottle of Tabasco in the fridge so you hot sauce lovers can thank me for that. Aloha! Until next time...

When you walk into this condo the first thing to catch your attention is the breathtaking view of the ocean! The condo features were great, from the large open kitchen with granite counters, to the spacious bedroom with sliding door and private bath, to the Murphy bed in living area and couch bed. The complex features BBQ'S and tables down by the beach. There is a pool and spa by the beach as well. The only feature the condo doesn't have is air conditioning and we were there during a very hot spell however there is a fantastic breeze that blows through once you open the sliding doors and front door. They also have fans in every room as well as ceiling fans so it was bearable. The kitchen is very well stocked with everything you might need. We ate most meals at the condo and found a great market several miles past Dole Plantation called Tamara's (great prices and worth the drive). We stopped at Costco in Honolulu when we arrived picking up our meat for the week. And on Saturdays there is a farmer's market in Waialua where there is a guy selling fresh fish. We picked up some great Mahi and Opah but he also has Ahi and Ono. Large pieces for $10. Every afternoon turtles could be seen from the condo swimming directly below. Take a walk down the beach to the left and you might stumble upon turtles basking on the beach. There are beach supplies such as chairs, coolers, snorkel gear, boogie boards, umbrella, sand toys, etc. We had a family of 3 adults and 1 17 year old staying here and the space worked out well. All in all this was a fantastic place to stay. Favorite beaches nearby were Waimea Bay and Sunset beach. Waimea Bay and Sharks Cove for snorkeling were great!

Beautiful and relaxing.
The Condo was beautiful, clean and spacious. Everything we needed for the week was included in the Condo and there was even a lovely Gift Basket left for us when we arrived. The Condo is in an ideal location right on the Beach and the views are wonderful. It was the perfect holiday and our son proposed to his girlfriend on the moonlight beach right outside of the Condo, so it made it an extra special time and a great memory for all of us. We all had a fantastic time and would definitely return.

Owner response: Sunset Shores is a great place for a romantic get away. I'm sure Anne's son and future daughter-in-law will not forget there stay. Congratulation to both.
Beautiful, well stocked condo. Great area! Enjoyed our stay. Only one thing, got very warm and sticky when trade winds weren't blowing. Would definitely return!!

Owner response: Thanks for your review. It does get a little humid when the trade winds stop, but this is usually for a short period and time of year. We do have ceiling fans in each bedroom as well as tower fans for each room.
My family fell in live with North Shore and the condo was just as described! Thank you for allowing us to make memories and for sharing your piece of heaven with us!

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.

Great vacation getaway!
Great vacation getaway!
We enjoyed our stay at this ocean view condo! We found it to be just as described and very comfortable. The view was beautiful and relaxing and with the windows open there was a comfortable breeze that cooled the whole condo rapidly. We felt like we were right on the beach. The property was clean and well maintained and we were provided with most everything we could need to cook and to enjoy the beach. The manager was very pleasant and quick to help, or to answer any questions. I would happily stay there again and would recommend it to anyone wanting to get away from the busy beaches.

This place is so beautiful and was perfect for our family vacation. There is nothing like being right on the ocean to listen to the waves and see the turtles swim, we even saw a huge stingray swimming right below us. The master bedroom was nice for my husband and I while our girls shared the murphy bed and pullout couch, both were very comfortable and easy to get out and put back. It was nice to have the two bathrooms and washer and dryer. The kitchen was well stocked with plenty of cooking utensils and dishes as well as pantry basics, we stocked up on groceries and cooked everyday, saving a lot of money, not eating out all the time. We also used the bbq grills often. The pool was really nice and we used it on the days we didn't go to the beach. Also the closet full of beach supplies was very useful. My kids really enjoyed the boogie boards and sand toys. I would highly recommend going to the Polynesian Cultural Center, and my husband enjoyed the fishing charter out of Haliewa only 3 miles away, where he caught a nice sized Mahi Mahi. Thanks so much Jerry and Cynthia for sharing your beautiful home, and the gift basket and Deb for being so helpful while we were there.
