Why Marie Rathburn chose North Shore Oahu

My husband family has been on the North Shore since the early 1900. We recently acquired this property and transformed it. Now it's flourished with Avocados, Mangoes, Bananas trees and several citrus & exotic fruit trees.

Absolutely Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough about this property. From the wonderful garden, fruit trees, friendly pet residents in the yard to the excellent quarters to stay in, to our wonderful hosts, and the close to Sunset Beach and other great spots. Everything is better than described. Quiet neighborhood & friendly neighbors. We were worried about being too warm while sleeping but the breezes that come through at night are perfectly cool for an excellent nights sleep and the bed was super comfy as well. Kitchen is equipped with everything you need to cook for yourself. Bathroom was HUGE and perfect. Plenty of fresh bath towels and beach towels. We will absolutely be staying here each and every time we visit the North Shore in the future. Most relaxing vacation we have ever had. Stayed at Turtle Bay in the past which is great, but enjoyed this so much better and at a fraction of the cost. Don't pass this one up if considering a stay on the North Shore. Thank you so much Marie and Alec for everything.

Wonderful stay at Sunset Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The Sunset Getaway was the perfect place for my stay on the North Shore. Marie and Alec were friendly and very accomidating hosts. The kitchen is well stocked. A grill is just outside the door, which I used a lot. The unit was clean and the bed comfy. The bathroom is bigger than our master bath at home. Also well stocked. No a/c, but the room cooled off nicely each night. The neighborhood is quiet. Plenty of parking. The property is just two blocks from the beach, and a short walk to Ted's Bakery, a local favorite. Absolutely would stay there again.

Incredible hospitality, amazing location

  • 5 of 5

Marie was the loveliest and most welcoming hostess. The apartment is ideally located in a peaceful, lush green area that is super close to some incredible beaches. The apartment had everything we needed and was really lovely and spacious with a large backyard. Huge bathroom with spa bath, great kitchen, comfy bed, lots of cooling options if it gets hot. It was just a short walk to beach, Teds Bakery and a short drive to a Foodland.

We'll be back! Absolutely loved it. Thanks Marie!

Read all the great prior reviews. They were accurate about this location. I will stay here again.

  • 5 of 5

Marie had tea made and chilled in the fridge along with fresh fruit from her property. She made us guacamole dip and delicious mango salsa dip. Not sure if she always makes the dips because she mentioned she had also made some for a wedding. Marie and her husband are very nice and easily accessible. They had some great suggestions of locations to visit.

If you want to see more of the island stay here and rent a car and drive around the island. The island is small enough to get to anywhere you want to visit from the location easily. We spent most of our time on this side of the island and away from Honolulu and had a fabulous time. When we go back we will do the same again.

I would not be honest if I didn't mention the air conditioning. There is none. They do have several fans. This was not an issue for us. There was a breeze and with the fans we were still comfortable. It was a little stuffy when we first got in in the evenings but quickly cooled off when we turned on the fans. For the low price to stay here for a safe, clean, comfortable place the airconditioning should not discourage you.

I have recommended this place already to friends.
