About the property

Two Very Comfortable Bedrooms, 1 Bath Sleeps 4

Our Ohana is relaxing, surrounded by tropical plants and creates a memorable Hawaiian experience for everyone. Livinig/dining room face the renown Backyards Beach with a private lanai for outdoor gazing allowing you to be mesmerized by the scenery.

We are located about 34 miles from the Honolulu International Airport.

The ride to the North Shore is full of beauty, tropical smells and well worth the travel to a peaceful, rural beach community. You will drive down Dole Road seeing and smelling pineapples, coffee beans and the gorgeous aquamarine Pacific Ocean.

Then once on the North Shore Kamehameha Highway becomes a rural road with the quaint village of Haleiwa followed by a breeding farm for quarter horses, then a century old horse ranch that was once a major dairy farm, followed by turtles sunbathing on the beach, with the famous Waimea Bay straight ahead. Across from the bay lies the famous Waimea Botanical Garden where once was one of the largest Hawaiian Villages, Waimea Ahupua'a (a Hawaiian chief's sliver of land from the mountain to the sea). This is a must to visit with a beautiful waterfall and gorgeous tropical plants. Their moon walks are romantic and soothing. After the bay you will drive along pristine beaches Three Tables, Shark's Cove, Log Cabins, Rock Pile, Ehukai Beach (to the left the famous Pipeline), Rocky Point then finally you see Sunset Beach where the World Pro surfers compete every Nov and Dec. Just before Wehiwa Place you will see the famous Ted's Bakery on the mountainside. Here you can enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner North Shore style. Oh and don't forget to try Ted's famous haupia cream pie.

As you drive up Wehiwa Place you will see the nice, quiet neighborhood our ohana is located. We are at the very end of the road giving you privacy yet an easy walk to the beach.

About Yvette McDonald

As a surfing east coast family, we dreamed of riding the famous Hawaiian waves and that dream came true in 1990 when we decided to move to the North Shore and make it our permanent residence. The North Shore has been everything we all dreamed of and we are proud to be a Hawaiian Ohana!

Yvette McDonald purchased this house in 2000

Why Yvette McDonald chose Haleiwa

After renting this wonderful beach house for 10 years, we decided to purchase it. The house is a duplex, so has 2 separate units, allowing us to rent out the top half, sharing our Hawaiian home with visitors from around the world. Sunset Beach is a small community with gorgeous, clean, uncrowded beaches. The boating, snorkeling and diving are classic and as water people we have been totally in love with this location.

What makes this house unique

Nestled against Comsat Hill our Ohana is at the very end of the road, giving us quiet, a gorgeous ocean view with daily sunsets that take your breath away! Best of all we can walk to the beach or ride our bikes on a 3 mile bike path that borders the ocean. This has been a plus for our active family.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great stay here! Very comfortable and clean. Hopefully I get another opportunity to come here on vacation.

Sunset Beach Ohana Super Deal With Spectacular Ocean/sunset View
average rating of 5.0 based on 9 reviews

Really amazing location.

  • 5 of 5

We walked everyday down to sunset beach or to the nearest public access (backyards surf break). The house is on a cul-de-sac which was great for our kids. The neighbor kids were super friendly and our 3-year-old boy was out there several days playing with them. The place has a lot of living space and was perfect for our family of four. Highly recommended.

We enjoyed our Hawaii stay in your Beautiful house at the end of the street. Love the neighborhood and walking to Sunset Beach to surf and Teds to Eat was Great. The house upstairs is so comfortable and airy with pretty views of the clouds, rainbows and Ocean. Full size kitchen, family room and dining room with 2 large bedrooms was really great for our Week in Hawaii. We hated to Leave. Aloha

Beautiful house at the end of the road! My friend and I love to surf, and the Ohana house is so close to the best surf spot's in the world!! The leather recliner's and the Jacuzzi were a plus after a long day of surfing! The mattress was like the one I have at home, big and comfortable! The kitchen was equipped with every thing and the bath room was nice and spacious! Ted's bakery is right down the street, good food and amazing doughnut's and pie's! The 55 inch smart TV with Netflix was perfect for watching movie's! Yvette the owner was great! If we needed some thing, she was more than happy to help! I will come back and recommend it to all my friend's! Aloha!!
