About Michel Rubini
HI, I'M MICHEL RUBINI. the very happy owner of The Sunset Beach House. I am a musician by trade, and I have been playing piano since I was 3 years old. I came to Hawaii with my father for the first time when I was 18 and have had a mad love affair with the islands ever since. I told my father at the time, 'Dad, one day I am going to live here', and he answered with a little chuckle, 'Yes son, of course you will'. He didn't believe me at the time and thought it was just a young man's fantasy so he humored me because he was a great dad, but several years later when I was a little more grown up, I came back and bought my wonderful home on Sunset Beach and I have been coming to the islands ever since. To be able to sit on my deck and view the beach and ocean, listen to the sound of the birds and waves is a wonderfully relaxing experience that I look forward to every morning that I am here. I am very happy to be able to share my little piece of Heaven with you. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. Aloha, Michel PS: My autobiography entitled "LIFE IN THE KEY OF RUBINI - A Hollywood Child Prodigy and His Wild Adventures in Crime, Music, Sex, Sinatra and Wonder Woman" is now out and for sale in both Kindle and Softcover editions, so look it up and read a little more and get to know me a lot better!!
Michel Rubini purchased this House in 1975
Why Michel Rubini chose Haleiwa
WHEN I WAS first looking for a home to buy in Hawaii I was not familiar with the islands, so I decided to travel to all of them to learn about them and to see what each of them offered. I discovered after visiting the outer islands that Oahu was the very best of all of them. The best part of course was that I found the best beach in all of the islands, Sunset Beach, which was the best kept secret in all the islands. Nobody knew it existed there on the North Shore except for the local islanders, and they were not telling anybody. I was taken there by a very friendly local, and when I saw the beautiful, white pearly sand beach in front of my house and the exotic, secluded location, and also being only 1 mile from the biggest waterfall on the island, Waimea Falls, I fell in love immediately.
What makes this House unique
MY HOME HAS the unique advantage of being the very last home on a frontage road, and because of that I have only one neighboring house on my left side, which is hidden from view by a 30' hedge of island vegetation. On the right side of my home I have my private volleyball and badminton court, and then there is just state land for about 300 yards before the start of the next frontage road. For that reason, my home has a great feeling of privacy and tranquility with unsurpassed views of the beach and ocean. I never feel 'boxed in' like the other beach houses. ********************* I Found Out that I could be just as secluded as I wanted on the most beautiful beach in all of Hawaii, or I could enjoy a bounty of cultural and ethnic delights not found anywhere else in the islands. It was just up to me to decide what I would do on any given day, be a sun worshiper on the beach, or join in the party that is always going on around the rest of the island. *********** The Ancient Hawaiians considered this location to be a spiritual spot on the island and held many ceremonies here on the beach, and also carved hieroglyphics into the beach rocks (which you can see at certain times of the year when the tide is low). It is considered to be a location of considerable archaeological significance and is also believed to be a very spiritual place by the Hawaiians. *********************** Oahu Is as beautiful and varied as any of the other islands, but also has the advantage of being able to go to wonderful restaurants, movies, nightclubs and concerts. The main history of Hawaii plays out on Oahu, and the Bishop Museum, the USS Arizona Memorial, the 'Iolani Palace, which is the only true royal palace in the United States and the last official residence of the kings and queens who ruled Hawaii, King Kalakaua and Queen Kapiolani, are all must sees during your visit here to Oahu. ------------

Great home and location
We had an amazing time on our recent trip to the north shore and so enjoyed this beach house- great location and lovely home! We stayed here with young family and the house had everything we needed and is directly on the beach. Incredible sunset views every night!
We truly loved every minute we were there! My kids loved getting in the water, my 7 year old son learned to boogie board, my kids and I explored for sand crabs at night, had a couple days with big enough waves to watch some surfers which was amazing. The area was really fun, the beach access amazing, and we loved the house. Spent a ton of time just hanging out on the deck watching the water. I could go on for a long time on how much fun we had, really I am very grateful to have had the opportunity to spend time there with my family. Thank you so much for the great communication and sharing your house. Hopefully we can get back there in the future if your place is available (hopefully someday we’ll buy a place down the beach from you that’s my new goal!). Also, Darryl was really nice and very helpful.
Was I dreaming? Nope its just that Magical.
The Sunset Beach House is legendary. If doesn't disappoint, you get exactly what you’re seeing, and yes, it is that amazing. The House, the Property, the Beach, the North Shore was everything we could have asked for on vacation. The family had a week we'll never forget, we can't stop talking about this place. This piece of paradise truly felt like my family’s beach home for the week, it’s the best spot on one of the most beautiful beaches in the world.
The owner provided the best customer service by making us feel welcome in his home before we had even arrived. The manager and his wife who met us onsite are wonderful, some of the nicest people I've met. Throughout our experience the communications and service was consistent, reliable, and just top notch. I couldn't ask for more. I would recommend this place to our friends and family in a heartbeat.
We were first in the morning to hunt the seashells, enjoy the sunrises, soak up the sun all day on the white sand beach and dip back and forth from the sun to the shade of the trees in the garden. Then back to the turquoise water and surf, an outdoor shower, then Rinse/Repeat. We shopped in Haleiwa (artwork/jewelry/surf shops galore ) and didn't miss Masumoto's shave ice. We did leave the house and hiked the through botanical gardens and tropical forests to swim under the waterfall. We also went deep sea fishing with Flyer SportFishing (Capt Jared's the man). The view from our house deck was phenomenal, we spotted BIG fish jumping, Hawaiian monk seals lay on the beach, dolphins swam by the boat, a turtle popped up in the surf, and a famous dude on the beach named Clark Little, he was working. We watched some great surfers rip summer barrels on Bonzai and Log Cabins, and they were like 10yo! But by far the families most enjoyable time was eating and drinking together on the deck then watching sunset, (followed by Stargazing and the hottub). I also highly recommend HawaiiPrivateDining for a private chef experience, it was like the cherry on top for a magical birthday. FYI - Foodland has a really decent wine selection, no need to pack too many bottles.
Thank You Sunset Beach House, we love you.
I am always delighted to hear how much our guests enjoy themselves at our home. We try our best to please all our guests. So whether you want to hike, swim, bike and fish, or if you just want to lay in a lounge chair on our deck in the day and soak in our spa when the sun goes down, I think you will find our home will be a perfect choice for you and your group.

Great home with wonderful customer service!
We stayed at the Sunset Beach House for a full week. It's right on the beach, has everything you need for a nice stay. Customer service from both owner and manager was above and beyond...making it an even nice visit to the north shore! Clean and washer/dryer worked great, comfy beds, lots of towels and everything in the kitchen you could need to cook whilst you're there! Will visit again!!
Authentic Hawaiian Home on Stunning Sunset Beach
We had a lovely trip and the house couldn't have been better for our group. We saw whales passing by daily while we enjoyed coffee on the deck. The swell was minimal during our stay and we were able to SUP straight from the house. Sunsets were world class! There is amazing snorkeling within walking distance at 3 Tables and Shark's Cove. Darryl was very friendly, helpful with local info and provided us with fresh coconuts! All in all this is the perfect house to explore the north shore.
I'm so glad my guests had a good time. Seeing the whales right in front of the house is always a great treat for everyone, especially me. Its one of the reasons I bought my little piece of paradise. Come and experience them like these guests did. You are always welcome to The Sunset Beach House!!
Thanks Michel, It was fantastic. What a great location. We played beach volleyball every day for hours (our daughters in both families are club players) and it’s in the SHADE!!! No burning sand or blazing sun in eyes! When done we jumped in the ocean... magical. That court really was a highlight for us. We did you a solid and got rid of rocks and glass so it’s good to bare feet.
The grocery store just down the street was perfect.
The deck was amazing to gaze at sunset and sea.
I love that there are no mega hotels on that side of the island and it’s so easy to get to Oahu.
The house was well thought out with even the hose in a brilliant location to wash feet from the court.
I want to return next year!.
I'm so glad everybody had a great time. The location of our home is so perfect that everybody always loves it. We are about 1,000 feet down the beach from Pipeline (the world's most famous surfing spot) and you can stand on our deck and look to the right up the beach and you can see those famous tunnel waves rolling into the beach with surfers inside them having a blast challenging themselves to the limit of they ability.
Our volleyball court is just another first that our home has. Its right along side the house and everybody loves it.
I'm always around if you want to chat with me, and I welcome all calls and emails.
