Wonderful condo on the bay. Nice quiet location. Condo is very clean, beautifully updated and very nicely appointed. We wanted for nothing. The water right in front of the condo is pretty rocky, which is great for turtle watching. Just a quick stroll to the east and we had all the sandy beach we could ask for, virtually to ourselves. It was perfect for our party of three.
We have been to the North Shore numerous times and this was certainly the best condo location we have stayed in. Quiet location along quiet beach. Loved sleeping with sound of waves. We had fun watching turtles. The condo was fully equipped with beach gear, washer/dryer, dishwasher, appliances, kitchenware, condiments, good wi-fi, cable TV, etc., etc., etc. All of the previous reviews are spot on. Everything as advertised !!!
Tip - Matsumoto's shave ice is not the best. Try Aloha General Store !!
The condo at Sunset Shores was the perfect place to prepare for our son’s wedding. My wife and I wanted a place on the North Shore of Oahu, close to the venue where the wedding was to take place. We couldn’t have asked for a better location. The view from the unit combined with the sound of waves just outside our window were amazing. We were lulled to sleep every night by the sound of the waves, it was awesome. Originally I was a little concerned that the unit did not have air-conditioning, but the owner assured me we wouldn’t need it, and I have to admit he was right, we had cool breezes most of the time and it wasn’t an issue. The unit was tastefully decorated and very comfortable. The kitchen and bathrooms were recently remodeled and very nice as well. I had the opportunity to do some snorkeling in the area right in front of the condo and there was an abundance of sea life. On more than one occasion I found myself swimming alongside sea turtles. Offshore we could see whales breaching and spotted at least half a dozen during our stay. The unit was well appointed with everything you would need, beach toys, snorkel gear, boogie boards. The building is very quiet and is situated in a quiet neighborhood as well. There is a beautiful park with a playground and wonderful sandy beach a short walk from the building. The property manager was very helpful and the other residents of the building were quite accommodating and pleasant for the most part. If you are looking for a comfortable place with a million dollar view this rental is unbeatable for the price.
The unit was completley high end everything and included more items for recreation activities (coolers, chairs , towels , boogie boards, snorlkel gear etc..) than any other condo we have rented over the past 20 years ! It saved us a ton of $$
The end unit was terrific as we saw sunrises from the bedroom sliders and sunsets facing the ocean from the main living area . The murphy bed and sleep sofas were super comfy and made the living space very effecient for a 1 bedroom and 2 older kids .
The pool / spa area was a little dated but never used them as the beach area / coral reef was steps away . The owner was awseome to deal with and we felt more like guests than tenants when deali g with him .
If you are going to Oahu dont rent this condo you a really missing out !
I've stayed at a lot of vacation rentals in different parts of the world and several times in Hawaii, so i consider myself an expert at this point and this was one of the nicer ones i've come across in my budget. Very nice and very well equipped unit. Kitchen was fully equipped and must have been renovated recently. All of the equipment you'll need for the beach for a family of 4. Beautiful view and a relatively nice beach on the property, if you don't feel like packing up for the day. Very close to a nice little town called Haleiwa, with good restaurants and groceries. Having the laundry in-suite was a HUGE plus with a family.
Owner was very easy to deal with and very accommodating and the property manager lived next door so any of our needs or questions were answered really quickly.
Overall a really great unit and came exactly as advertised.
