A Note About The $750/nt Rate: It is only for dates that are very close to the current date that I have not been able to book so I lower the price to encourage someone to take it on short notice, for instance between today and a month from now, but if that is not your case the regular rates would apply. You can see the regular rates both on the availability calendar and also on the inquiry form that you fill out when you put in your desired dates.

PLEASE BE ASSURED THAT OUR HOME IS DIRECTLY ON THE BEACH! A NOTE about Google Maps: Their description under their map that says "1.2 mi to the beach" is TOTALLY INCORRECT. We are located directly on the sand of Sunset Beach. We are trying to have this corrected at Google maps but we are not sure how this happened or when it will be corrected. Just walk off the deck, take a few steps and you will be standing on the pristine sands of Sunset Beach.
Thats why my home is named The Sunset Beach House.



Perfect for 2 to 8 people, this fabulous BEACHFRONT property is located ON THE SAND of 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 55” 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 double 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.

*OUR BARBECUES* Also, outside on the deck facing the ocean we have not one, but two barbecues. One is the standard charcoal grill and the other is a George Foreman Electric Grill. So whether you are looking to eat a little healthier or just enjoy a good grilled steak we've got you covered!

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 Air Conditioned 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.

AIR CONDITIONING: Please note that our bedrooms are all air conditioned. Each bedroom has its own individual unit. Additionally, being located on the beach, you'll enjoy the trade winds that blow through our home and provide all the air flow we need for perfect temperatures most of the year.

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.

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.

If There Is Any Problem at all in the house upon your arrival please call us IMMEDIATELY so we can fix it for you.

Also, We are an Eco-Friendly Home and are always looking for more ways to live sustainably, with Solar Water Heating, all LED Lighting inside and out, Low Flo shower heads, and we compost all our yard waste.

We will happily provide you with any information or help that you need with securing any outside reservations or services that you may desire such as tours or activities, whale watching or snorkeling, etc.

My wife and I really enjoyed our recent visit to the Sunset Beach House. The air-conditioning works so well, I had to put on a blanket at night. We also love the real Hawaiian style of the home with its tropical furnishings and laid-back vibe. This is truly a touch of paradise and feels like the real Hawaii we all dreamed about when we were kids. We look forward to returning.

House has one of the best views of beachfront property that we’ve ever experienced. The house was extremely nice, and the caretaker provided anything we could’ve possibly needed. We would absolutely stay here again!

We enjoyed our stay. What a great beach vacation! The house was nicely maintained and the perfect choice for our group. The beach is right there, and what a beautiful beach it is.

House is old and in need of updating, but clean! A/C is just wall units and can’t keep the place cool, because the windows are so old. Deck is big and can accommodate. But this house is no comparison to the other houses around, which are in the same price range. The property manager is so friendly and extremely helpful and informative!

Rent for the location and amazing views!!! Right on the beach, close to grocery store and food trucks. Of note, the master bedroom is an upstairs loft. The mini-split units in the bedrooms worked well for air conditioning the bedrooms. We enjoyed our stay!

We had a lovely stay at the Sunset Beach house. Located directly on the beach and off the bike path that lines the prime surf breaks of the North Shore. The home is decorated in classic Hawaiian style and the great room with multiple windows affords an excellent view of the surf and ocean. Beach combing was great with an abundance of sea glass found. Daily spotting of whales from the deck both distant and close was a highlight of staying in the home as well as the easy access foot, car or bike to all the prime North Shore surf breaks. We would not hesitate to return to the Sunset Beach House!

February 2023
Our family enjoyed this house very much. The beach access is fantastic, easy to cook in kitchen with everything you need, great deck to share meals while watching the waves. We were lucky enough to see unbelievably high waves while we were there.

Absolutely fabulous location right on the beach on the North Shore of Oahu. We stayed for 10 days and wish it could’ve been a month. The property manager is superb!

Looking forward to the Hawaiian Christmas for almost two years produced some pretty high expectations but all 6 of us agree it was a complete success. We arrived in a fierce storm and the waves were 20 to 30 ft. None of us have ever “lived” that close to the surf. I can still feel the vibrations. The first day we became aware of whale spouts about 500 yards offshore and actually saw a humpback whale breach right from the deck of the house. The area had plenty of things to keep all of us interested including two college age adults. The manager Darryl was responsive and helpful and the locals were laid back and friendly. Great food, great memories. Thanks for the use of your amazing North Shore house.

We stayed at the Sunset Beach house for 10 days with our adult kids and it was fantastic! You can't beat the views and sunsets from the house! It was really nice having the beach just outside our door and a grocery store and restaurants not too far away.

What a unique Hawaii experience! The beach is the best I've ever seen. Had several calm days when we ventured into the water and then a few days when we could only watch the spectacular shore break. Found quite a few shells and even a small, rare SUNRISE shell!! A beachcomber's heaven. The house feels like true Hawaii with Polynesian decor throughout. We enjoyed the large view decks, coconut palms, on site sand volleyball court, covered parking & being close to the local grocery store. And a hot tub with views over the beach and ocean too. One of the best places I've visited!!! Can't wait to return. By the way, the property manager, Darrell, is a true gem.

If you want to stay on a beach on Oahu, this is the one you want. The house is right on the beach, with with a large deck. We slid those doors open and spent the majority of our time right there. There were some things we didn’t get to do while we were there. But we were enjoying the house and beach, and didn’t care. The decor is just what you would expect in a Hawaiian beach house. Not fancy, but very comfortable. There were supplies of necessities provided: beach towels, toilet paper, trash bags, dishwasher detergent, that lasted the week. Darryl met us when we got there and helped us unload. He responded quickly to any time we had a question or needed help. If you get a chance to visit this house, take it. You won’t be disappointed.

Feel the trade winds through the countless louvers and sliding door screens, smell the ocean air, hear the surf, hear the wild chickens and the wind rustling the huge ficus and palm trees surrounding the property...all that makes for a very authentic Hawaiian beach house experience. The sunsets are awe-inspiring., the sand is so clean the white...the beach is almost deserted...like having a huge private beach in front of your island paradise home. I loved it here. I'd definitely come again.

Amazing Hawaiian House on Sunset Beach. Sunsets were fantastic every night. View off the back deck was a great place to have morning coffee and evening mai tais. Great swimming and snorkeling on the beach outside the house and 10 minute walk to sharks cove for some fantastic snorkeling. less than 10 minute drive to Foodland, Ted’s bakery with amazing desserts and Waimea bay. We spent 10 days and wish we’d had more time.

Excellent location, and very nice home. Just a few steps out the back door, and you're on a beautiful sandy beach!! We had an amazing time here and would love to come back.

We had a wonderful time in Oahu! Your house was a perfect back-drop to our vacation. It felt like we had our own private beach. The tropical bugs got the best of us but I guess that is to be expected to some degree. Darryl was very hospitable and was fun to talk with about the island traditions and places to visit. Thanks for sharing your home with us!

We had a group of 8 stay at Sunset beach house. Darryl met us there for check in and answered all our questions and gave us great ideas for places to visit during our stay. The house is so cute and you can’t beat the access to the beach. Beds were comfortable and kitchen had everything we needed. Would definitely go back for another visit!

There wasn't a more beautiful location anywhere. The house was beautiful and big enough for all 8 in my family. We saw dolphins go by in front of the house twice. The snorkeling in Shark's Cove (a 5 minute walk) was unbelievable. It was wonderful to have a park on one side of us instead of more houses. We saw chickens with little chicks there. Darrel was wonderful to work with. He even bought a shade pop-up and had it waiting for me at my request. We all enjoyed the hot tub! Thanks!

A true beach house! Doors open on all sides, wind blowing, water 10' away, April waves small swimming was good. The view is amazing. Food is just walking distance from the house. Golf and cocktails a few miles away at Turtle Bay, although no better place for cocktails than the beach house with friends. Location, Location, Location.

Our time in your beautiful home was so much more than satisfactory- it was awesome!! The location is perfect. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and wished we had a few more days. We rented bikes from North Shore Bike Rentals and rode daily in both directions (even in the rain) - kids had a blast!!! You have a gem in Darryl - he is certainty a “keeper” he was the absolute best host we could ask for - over the top!!! I also found a copy of your book at the house and read the whole thing while there … you’ve had quite the adventurous life - quite impressive. Thanks for sharing your story and your beautiful home with me and my family- we will absolutely consider staying there again on our next trip to the North Shore! Mahalo

We enjoyed our stay so much that we didn't want to leave. This house is in an amazing location and the surrounding area is fantastic as well. Whales galore! Daryl, the property manager is really the star of the show. He went above and beyond and made our stay even more memorable with his thoughtfulness and his kindness.

We had a great time at The Sunset Beach House! We loved the views and that it was right on the beach with plenty of room for our group. The property manager was also great to work with. My one disappointment is that this beach has “no swimming” signs posted (at least at the time of year we visited- late March) and the water when we visited was definitely too rough for my kids to swim in. There were calmer swim spots a few minutes up and down the beach but not right outside the house. Otherwise, we thought the house was great and would recommend it to friends and family. Thanks!

Beautiful property right on the beach. We loved the architecture and decor, which really contributed to the vacation feel (as if the ocean view wasn’t enough!) as soon as you walked into the home. The house was well stocked with everything we could need, from kitchen to beach items to even including random baby items (like travel crib, baby spoons — we just contributed outlet covers to the collection. lol). The instructions to best enjoy the property and keep everything secure were very thorough. Darryl and Cardine were so pleasant and helpful! You could feel their warmth just pulling into the driveway. The hot tub on the deck was the perfect way to close out an evening watching the sunset colors change. We enjoyed feeding jam to the geckos from our fingers and watching whales in the distance. The location was super convenient to get grocery, and tootle around town and enjoy beach excursions, like surf lessons and shark diving. We’d definitely go back.

Thank you for reaching out. The house was beautiful and we all had an amazing time. Daryll was such a joy to meet and have him stop by. He instantly made us feel welcome and cared for. He sure is a keeper. The sound of the ocean in the loft was unbelievable I have never heard anything like that before. It became the best sound to fall asleep to. Thank you for letting us rent the house and I hope all is well with you. I am back in Michigan snow on the ground with highs of 20 degrees lol my next big vacation I will check out your other homes. Thanks again. Jennifer

Before I chose this property, I had read several reviews…Almost always positive and several mentioned Darryl the property manager. We just left Darryl and the property about 5 hours ago and I am already sad! Wonderful property, even better property manager is the best I can describe our family’s visit this last week at the “The Sunset Beach House”. Mahalo Darryl!

If you are looking for a fabulous rental in the North Shore on Oahu, look no further. This house and location is exactly what anyone could want. From check in to check out, it was all perfect. The pictures do not overstate the property. It is exactly as pictured and described. The Hawaiian feel of the house to the deck that hangs right over the sand where we spent the majority of our time will make you feel like you have found paradise. We also can’t say enough wonderful things about Darryl, the property manager. He is kind and so attentive to any question or need you may have.

I can’t say enough wonder things about our experience at the Sunset House! Our family of 8 were extremely comfortable in the space, had everything we needed to enjoy our trip. Well stocked kitchen to prepare every meal! We had zero issues and would highly recommend this home. The sounds of the ocean during January was music to my ears and we loved every sunset!

The location of the house was perfect! Close to Haleiwa and the Dole Plantation for day outings, or just enjoy the beach right in the back yard. The outdoor shower was great for rinsing off after playing in the sand. My only complaint was that we ran out of hot water by the end of the evening with everyone trying to get a shower. But we learned to adjust our hot water usage and all was good. Would definitely stay here again!

If having your own beach is a priority when visiting Hawaii, this is the place for you! Very private and peaceful location on the North Shore, yet walking distance to grocery, food trucks and surf lessons. Darryl was very helpful and made himself available to us at anytime, though we didn't have much need to contact him. The outdoor shower was awesome!

This property is great. Right on the beach with close food spots, grocery store, snorkeling @ sharks cove was awesome, there were lots of fish to see and protectedenoughto feelcomfortable having children snorkel. Although water shoes are definitely recommended. Property manager was also very helpful and informative. We had 7 Adults and 1 child and had plenty of space for sale of us. The beach out the back of the property would be good for strong surfers on a good day. Waves can get a bit rough. But it is a good beach to relax and soak up the sun. We would definitely visit again.

I have to say that my friend and I had the best time in Michel's home on the North Shore. We started our trip with 4 days in Waikiki at a resort and then 7 more days at The Sunset Beach House. The house was extremely well appointed. Darryl (property manager) and his wife were exceptionally gracious and helpful. The deck looks out over the beach and the ocean and is such a magnificent setting. There is a grocery store (Foodland) about 1 minute away...Shark's Cove (named for the shape not the inhabitants) was so great for snorkeling....much better than Hanauma Bay for seeing the sea life of the islands...tons of fish to swim with....Haleiwa was about 10 minutes away and had plenty of great restaurants, food trucks, small shops and is such a cool town to hang out in...also home to Hawaii Adventure Diving (snorkeling, no cage, with sharks)...and so much more...but returning to the house every night was so relaxing. Waking up in the morning to the ocean right outside the back porch was a dream come true. I highly recommend Michel's home to anyone and will definitely be back.

Sunset Beach House was super cute, cozy, and clean - well appointed. The beach was stunning, soft sand and warm, turquoise blue water. The location can't be beat, lots of stuff to do within a short driving distance, many good restaurants in nearby Haleiwa, paddle board, surfboard rentals, etc. Nearby grocery store with world renowned poke. Easy process for sure. Will be back.

This property blew my family away. This house is just outstanding, it feels unique to Hawaii. Location right on the beach is hard to beat. We took so many gorgeous sunset, sunrise, and rainbow photos without having to take an extra drive anywhere. The hot tub actually gets nice and hot too. It’s obviously humid in Hawaii but they supply enough fans and AC units so every room can stay comfortable. If you’re planning a lot of activities in Waikiki then it would be hard to stay here. Lastly, the property manager was extremely sweet. He dropped off pre chopped coconuts for us just for fun - ridiculous.

If you are looking for the very best location in Hawaii, look no further, this is it! If you are looking for classic Hawaii style, here it is! This house is fantastic - nothing beats this. Right on the beach, close to everything. We have been coming here for years now, and will never go anywhere else. Darryl is the kindest human being you will ever meet. The house has everything you need with a grocery store right across the street. Thank you thank you again, we will be back!
