ALOHA FROM THE SUNSET BEACH HOUSE!!
Perfect for 2 to 8 people, located on the sand at Sunset Beach (on the main island of Oahu), this exotic, Polynesian-style house is one of the best values for a relaxing, exciting vacation in one of the most beautiful, natural settings the islands have to offer. The home has 4 bedrooms & 3 bathrooms, and sleeps up to 8 persons with comfort & ease.
My home is located right on the sand at Sunset Beach, on the main island of Oahu, about 1000 feet down from Pipeline, one of the world's most famous surfing spots. The beach in front of my house is gorgeous and is hardly used as there is no public access to it close to my home. The home has four bedrooms and three bathrooms. There is a Jacuzzi on the deck overlooking the beach and my own private volleyball/badminton court is right along side of the house, as you can see in the aerial photo on my website.
The house is less than ten minutes from the historic whaling town of Haleiwa, which is the main town on the north shore of Oahu. It has lots of restaurants, shopping, a marina (in case you would like to go deep sea fishing), and live entertainment nightly in some of the restaurants. The Turtle Bay Hilton is about five miles away from the house in the other direction, and they feature two championship GOLF courses, horseback riding, and a disco.
For your viewing pleasure the living room has a 46” Flatscreen HDTV featuring all the movie channels with stereo DVD, and there are Flatscreen TV/DVDs in all the bedrooms.
The home also has digital security and an electronic safe for your valuables.
In addition to the 3 inside baths there is a hot and cold 2 headed shower at the bottom of the deck which is hidden by foliage, and is everybody's favorite place to shower and refresh after coming off the beach or after a long soak in the spa.
The kitchen is custom crafted in local island Koa hardwood and of course there is a Telephone, Cable, Wireless Internet (WiFi), iron, and all the other items you would commonly find in your own home.
There is a wonderful Foodland Supermarket about a half mile from the house which also sports a Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf (formerly Starbucks). All the Island activities, from hangliding to scuba diving, from polo matches to jet-skis are all just minutes away from my tropical retreat. The water is crystal clear and the snorkeling is great. SCUBA diving is also a major attraction on the north shore with both boat and shore dives available. Waimea Falls is only a mile away, and hiking at Waimea Valley and visiting the falls is an unforgettable experience.
There are 4 bedrooms, and sleeps a maximum of 8 people.
Bedroom 1 - 1 King
Bedroom 2 - 1 Queen
Bedroom 3 - 2 Twins (can be made into a king upon request)
Bedroom 4 - 2 Twins (can be made into a king upon request)
Each bedroom is like a master bedroom. The master king bedroom upstairs looks out
to the beach and ocean. The downstairs queen master bedroom looks out to the
volleyball court and beach and ocean. Both of the other bedrooms feature views of
the lush greenery and mountains behind the home. The jungle like foliage comes down from the mountains and surrounds the home creating a unique feeling of privacy while looking out at the spectacular vistas of Sunset Beach, which is one of the most famous and
romantic beaches on Oahu, and certainly in all of Hawaii.
The house is my own personal residence and is beautifully furnished in rattan and antiques. You'll see pictures on the walls of stars like Suzanne Somers and David Carradine who have stayed and relaxed here.
Lush foliage surrounds the house and the sound of the wind and the waves will remain in your memories for years to come.
Air Conditioning: Please be aware that our home is not air conditioned. Being on the beach, the trade winds that blow through our home provide all the air flow we need and perfect temperature most of the year. If you have questions please contact me anytime for more details.
GUEST SERVICES: Our main endeavor to you is to make sure your stay with us is the best it can possibly be. Our property manager is always on call for you and lives nearby.

As the owner I always recommend to all of my guests that they buy trip insurance. I always buy it myself and is very inexpensive and will take care of any and all expenses you might incur if you have to cancel your trip. VRBO can sell it to you or you can buy it online, and you also should check with your credit card company because you may already have it as one of the perks that some credit cards give you when you take out their credit cards. For a detailed description of my cancellation policy please read below. Aside from the legalese used it means mainly that I will give you your money back for whichever days I can re-rent minus a 15% service fee. Here is the actual clause:

1) The home becomes unfit for habitation and no equivalent substitute can be obtained by owner; or
2) The home is re-booked for the period of the initial booking for an amount equal to or greater than the initial booking under this agreement. If the home is re-booked for a portion of the term of this agreement, a pro-rata refund will be made based on the difference between the daily rental under this agreement and the daily rental on re-booking of the home.

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
Michel Rubini purchased this House in 1975
Why Michel Rubini chose Pūpūkea
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. ------------

Perfect spot for a family vacation
We had such a lovely time in your beautiful home! It is such a perfect location, well away from the craziness of Waikiki. We enjoyed horseback riding, hiking, snorkeling, a luau, and even shark cage diving! Darryl was a very gracious caretaker. It was everything we hoped for and I hope we can stay with you again one day.
We enjoyed the space. I would have given a 5 star review but ... The hot tub did not work. The washer shook the whole house. During our stay we had someone stop by to fix the issues a few times. The issues never got fixed.
The house itself is awesome! The location to the beach is perfect! Thank you for having such a great spot.
First of all, I want to apologize to my guest. I am truly sorry that the 2 items he mentioned above were not working correctly at the time of his stay. I would have given anything if I could have had the spa and washer fixed in a day, but houses are sort of like cars, they run fine until something breaks, and then you have to fix them. In this case, the washer threw a bearing and a motor in the hot tub went on the blink at about the same time. I have already bought a new washer and the hot tub is back up and running. Its my hope that its a long time before anything else goes on the blink, but when it does I will always do my level best to have it fixed asap. I hope that my 100+ 5 star reviews reflect the care I take in maintaining my home at the highest standard possible.
Michel (the owner)
Really enjoyed out time at the Sunset Beach House.
Outstanding beach house!
Thank you Michel! We had a wonderful time. The house was perfect for me and my family. We spent a lot of time at the wooden bars overlooking the ocean, enjoying the warmth and the scenery. One great thing we weren't expecting was the walk/bike path along the road. We brought folding bikes with us, and it was great to be able to ride them up to Ted's Bakery or down to Foodland. We loved Waimea Valley and Waimea beach as well. We ended up snorkeling with a sea turtle right off the beach. It was heavenly.
Beautiful views, Maximum relaxation!
Great beach house. Terrific views from the porch. We saw whales! Walk to Pipeline Beach to watch the surfers. Kids loved running around the beach, everyone loved the spectacular sunsets. Comfortable beds, well-stocked kitchen. Recommended!
The perfect beach house.
The Sunset Beach House exceeded every expectation. Tried to book next Christmas but it was already taken. That should tell folks something. We had the perfect time 🌴
