Recent Sunset Beach reviews
In a word - AMAZING!
"My family had the wonderful opportunity to stay at Hale Pono for 16 days! It was glorious! I have rented several homes in the Sunset Beach area and this was superb. Great location, everything in the house is high end, furniture, beds are super comfortable, linens and towels are high end, appliances, dishes and utensils, TV, ceiling fans, Bose surround sound speakers to listen to Hawaiian music, everything that ensures guests have a wonderful and comfortable environment to enjoy their vacation. It was a treat that all bedrooms had their own bathroom! And the master suite -- wow! The entire upstairs is the master bedroom! The views from the master bedroom and lania, and falling asleep to the sounds of the ocean is such a treat. Make sure you plug in the lights in the backyard that hangs on the Kukui nut tree. It makes for a beautiful ambiance when you sit in the lanai in the evening.
The location of the home is also superb. The beach that is directly behind the home is great for swimming. White sand, not rocky, and close to many fine establishments including Teds Bakery (walking distance) and Foodland (short drive). I absolutely love sunset beach and this home is right in the heart of that beach.
Elyse was great to work with and very honest. John, our local contact, was truly wonderful. He was extremely responsive and exuded that "aloha" spirit. If you are looking for a high end beach rental that provides a lot of space and spectacular views, don't hesitate to rent this beautiful home.
PS - One thing that I didn't realize when I rented is that the house does not have air conditioning (central air or window units). It was fine for me, the sliding doors and windows allow you to get the ocean breeze, and ceiling fans ensure air was constantly circulating. However my husband did miss it. So if you have a sensitivity to not having AC you should be prepared that this house does not have it. Also many beach houses do not have AC so this is not at all unusual and it would not personally prevent me from renting this property again in the future."

"This is a very clean property, very close to the beach and other fun places on the North Shore. The owners are great to work with and we didn't have a moments bit of trouble at all. The property is amazing - we picked bananas and avocados and saw other items that weren't quite ripe when we were there. While we were on the go most of the time, it was sure nice to come home to a place we felt comfortable with. We used the beach umbrella and chairs and even were able to make great use of the snorkel equipment. We saw turtles and even a Hawaiian Monk Seal! I would highly recommend this property for a party of 6 or less - things could not have gone better for us!!"

I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.
I was very happy with the location.
The vacation rental was very clean.
The property manager was very helpful.
Overall, I recommend this vacation rental.
Great spot. The house needs some attention as carpets are older and the electrical outlet in the upstairs bath is loose on the wall.
Our car was ransacked one night. We had a few loose coins to insure they felt successful. Beats replacing broken car windows. It would be an excellent idea to fix/replace the broken fense board. Also, you may wish to consider putting up a gate and additional wooden fencing. It is helpful to protect small children near a very busy highway. Equally important, it would discourage petty theft and easy access to the property. A wooden gate with a rubber wheel rollers on a concrete paver base would be most cost effective. It can be built as is the current fense. Our family would feel much more comfortable and I assuem the other guests and houses which you own would benefit as well.
We very much enjoyed our stay and will plan to return in the future.
Please seriously think about the gate and fence!

"Had such an amazing stay at Judy and Mark's. The bungalow was beautiful and it's in a great location. It is clean, neat and a great size. 3 of us stayed there very comfortably! They have bikes that you can use which made getting around very easy, as we traveled without a car. Close to the ocean and many great attractions, hiking, waimea bay, sharks cove, sunset beach, and a short bus ride to turtle bay, to name a few! Judy was a pleasure to deal with and made everything very easy! I would stay here again in a heartbeat if i return to Oahu! Mahalo for the fantastic stay :)"
