The North Shore offers so much, but you will find it difficult to leave the peaceful pool lanai with it's cool tradewinds and relaxing atmosphere.
Note: Our home is not outfitted with air conditioning. As noted there are ceiling fans and because of our location the house stays comfortable.

About A. Papandreou
We love the North Shore. We hope you will enjoy our house as much as we do!
A. Papandreou purchased this House in 2016
Why A. Papandreou chose Pūpūkea
People love the North Shore of Oahu because of it's country like setting: no hotels in sight. The people are very friendly, healthy and fun. The area is full of outdoor activities, if you so choose, or it can be extremely quiet and relaxing. Although it is in 'the country,' it is only a short 3 miles to Turtle Bay where one can play tennis, golf, bike, ride horses, visit the spa or have a wonderful fine dining experience. It's 6 miles into Haliewa town to visit lots of cute shops, dine or rent water equipment.
What makes this House unique
Views, Views and more Views! Amenities all over the place. Cooking is a dream here, you won't want to leave. STRICTLY NO PARTIES OR EVENTS THANK YOU

Best Family Vacation
My family and I stayed at Sunset Beach house for my parents 50th anniversary, since they've never been to Hawaii. There were 11 of us (adults); 1st, 2nd and 3rd generation who came for family vacation. We were more interested in being away from Tourist crowd, but had great access to rest of island. Location of this house kept us around North shore which is where we spent most of our time.
House is perfect for big family, and everyone has their own space. Initially, we booked for 13 but 2 weren't able to make it. Living room, dining room and outdoor space were all open to each other which made for even more elbow room. Pool was a major hit, despite getting to the beach almost daily. Kitchen was spacious enough to accommodate 7 adults cooking and prepping at the same time. We particularly enjoyed cabana style bedroom suites, that gave us retreat while still surrounded by family.
In addition, caretakers on site were most helpful to give us tips on local scenery. We are indebted to Ralph and Ginger for all their help, advice and attention to us. They are two of the nicest people and a welcoming "gem" to our stay.
Last, I have to thank Algy for all of his accommodation. We felt welcomed, informed and appreciate the fact that you met all of our needs, requests, and additional discounts. My parents had the time of their lives and there's no doubt in my mind that our stay on Sunset Beach was the anchor to their experience. We WILL definitely stay at this property again, and highly recommend it to others.
Sunset Beach House: 6 Stars [BETTER THAN 5]
We had our entire family including grandparents (2), grandchildren (2), adult children and spouses (5) and 2 friends there for 15 nights. I must say that Sunset Beach House is very special with a separate wing right off the pool for my wife and I, both in our 70s, for perfect privacy and space galore for all, including a giant dining table that was comfortable for all and could have held more. The grandchildren had their own specail room with portholes for windows and bunkbeds for sleep and fun.
Sunset Beach House is every bit as spectacular as the pictures but being there every night for sunset, viewing from the very deep pool,the large hot tub or virtually anywhere else on the beautiful property, was "to die for." I understand that there will be some redecoration (it doesn't need a thing) but the new owners want their own footprint, so when we go back I expect that it will be even more luxurious.
It had all the amenities you could want both in the house and for outdoors, for the and pool, including toys and bikes for all ages, a full-size ping pong table, etc, etc. We could not have been more happy or made to feel more comfortable. We highly recommend Sunset Beach House to all.
My 13 year old grandson and his friend both became certified scuba divers with Hawaii Eco Divers and I did some fabuolus wreck diving, among 9 other great dive sites, also with Eco Divers. Highly recommended.
Also, hats off to Ralph and Ginger, the "guardians" of the property, with their own home, who were absolutely wonderful and as important, unobtrsuive.
All the best,
Rich Rubin and Family
Perfect Vacation Rental for Family and Friends!
We are very surprised at the review posted on May 6th. We (adults and children) recently returned from our third time staying here and have always had a very positive experience! The house is beautifully laid out with lots of space and amenities; the views are spectacular and the pool and nearby beaches are enjoyed by all! The common sense rules about noise levels after 10:00 PM are appropriate when considering the quiet, semi-rural nature of the neighborhood. The caretakers, Ralph and Ginger have been very gracious and hospitable and have always made sure that everything was working properly and that we had what we needed to make our stay enjoyable. Never once did we feel they were intrusive. Overall we love staying here and highly recommend this as the perfect place to stay with family and friends.
Beautiful Property but intrusive and rude caretakers
Probably one of the coolest properties we have ever stayed at and overall we had a great time. BUT, the property comes with onsite caretakers who think it is ok to drop in anytime and are extremely rude. And please do not make any noise! Children laughing, talking and enjoying their vacation are truly frowned upon. Adults engrossed in conversation, laughing, enjoying their friends and family after 10:00pm may cost part of your deposit. If you want to spend your vacation being supervised by rude onsite caretakers and in silent meditation, this is your place!!
When a renter has a legitimate complaint, we always take it to heart and try our very best to remedy the situation. We welcome feedback and even appreciate constructive criticism, as it helps us improve and makes sure everyone has a great experience. One of the reasons we have renters sign a contract, clearly stating all house rules (with several written and verbal reminders), is to make sure everyone enjoys their Hawaiian experience, including those living in the neighborhood. We are very sorry that this renter had such a terrible experience with our caretakers. However, we believe the root of their ‘bad’ experience stems from their blatant disregard of our rental contract and its rules.
Initially, after returning home, the renters sent us the following complimentary email (see below).
I just wanted to let you know that we had a wonder vacation in your beautiful home. I was so impressed with the house! It was absolutely perfect for our family as well as the other family that stayed with us. I don't think my 11 year old was out of the pool/hot tub more than a few hours the whole duration of our visit! I also so appreciated the kitchen and how well it was stocked with the basics; pans, bowls, serving platers etc!
We cooked in every night but 1! I plan to write a very positive review. :)
Please send the deposit to:
It wasn’t until after we kept a portion of their deposit, that they posted the disparaging review.
Having hundreds of people vacationing in our home over the past seven years, we have never received as many neighbor complaints and never from more than two houses away.
This is a beautiful home, our personal vacation/retirement home, located in a wonderful neighborhood, where families and friends can gather, relax and enjoy spending time together.
It’s very simple to enjoy your stay at our home, just follow the rules and everyone is Happy!
We rented a house and got a HOME!! This house has the Hawaiin Spirit and Soul. It is well built, very well cared for, it is in the best location in the North Shore. Its definitely cozy, comfortable and very charming. The pool and the spa are special. The perfct view of Sunste Beach. We had an amazing family and friends vacation.
October Birthday Retreat
We had 8 adults, 4 kids with us for an October Birthday retreat, where we would be celebrating about 6 birthdays!
The location sits up in the lower hills of Sunset Beach, looking down on the beach area. It is about a 10-15 minute walk to Ted's Bakery, about 5 minutes to Sunset Beach itself. So a really great location for the North Shore. The street is super quiet at all times of the day (House being built next door should be done soon) and night.
The property is super well furnished including plenty of kitchen utensils, shampoo/conditioner in every bathroom, towels (Beach and property), beach chairs, bikes, bodyboards, snorkeling gear, hairdryers, etc. Really have thought of it all.
The pool and hot tub were clean, and in constant use our whole time there.
Parking was very sufficient for our whole group. We had three cars and never had issues getting spots on property. Room for more if needed!
We ate on the property pretty much every night, which i guess is testimony to how comfortable we were on the property.
We were able to open up all the windows and doors to the house from the moment we arrived to the moment we left. When the winds blew, it really was nice! Beware, you back up to the jungle, and critters become a part of it. Not uncommon to see lizards all over the walls in this environment. The kids loved it! So did the adults.
We received great information on activities from the owners prior to our arrival, and definitely utilized that packet a bunch on the trip. The caretakers on property were wonderful and super helpful. Loved Ralph and Ginger.
The kids really enjoyed the bunk situation in their room. The theme was awesome!
Definitely would recommend this property for groups of all sizes.
This house is 1 block up and 1 block over from Sunset Beach life guard tower, on a quiet, private, dead end road allowing for its incredible and expansive views. Sunset Beach is the heart of the Seven Mile Miracle of the North Shore surf scene. The consistent North Pacific swells and prevailing off-shore trade winds create some of the best surfing conditions in the world. The North Shore is the 'country ' of the Hawaiian experience. The winter season offers the energy and pulse of the North Shore surfing action. The summertime offers a classic country, beach setting with great diving, wind sports, and beach activities. Nearby you can find jungle hiking, golf, tennis, waterfalls, shopping, fine dining and The Polynesian Cultural Center which offers a wonderful island learning experience featuring live dancing, shows and luau. Other Activities: amazing whale watching and surfing from the house and pool deck. Golf: Golfing can be found just 5 minutes away at The Turtle Bay Resort. The resort also features tennis and has two fine dining restaurants, one over looking the golf course, the other is on the beach. A community course is also located 25 minutes eastward in Laie. The oceanfront course offers great views and an affordable alternative to the famous Turtle Bay course. Free tennis and basketball courts can be found at the Elementary School located directly across from Pipeline parking lot, just 2 minutes from the house.
