Overview

About the property

The perfect tropical beach getaway...

Our beach house is located directly on a beautiful secluded beach in Waimanalo, Oahu, Hawaii. Waimanalo Beach is the most beautiful beach on the island. It is one of the quietest and least crowded beaches in Hawaii. Gentle waves and soft white sand make it perfect for all to enjoy the wonderful, clear, warm water. Only 25 minutes from Waikiki and Honolulu.

Enjoy the amazing beach scenery from our new ocean deck. View beautiful sunrises along with your breakfast outside. Be enraptured in the beauty of Hawaii and Waimanalo Beach.

Our home includes two bedrooms with queen sized beds, 1 1/2 bathrooms, a large living and dining room (which includes two futons that convert into full size beds), and a fully equipped kitchen. Outside there is a large fenced in yard with beach accessories and just steps away is the beautiful beach and the ocean.

We recently updated the decor of the house and installed split A/C systems for all the rooms. Our kitchen remodel Is finished with new cabinets, counter tops, and appliances!

Our Aloha Getaway Home is a quiet, peaceful place to spend your vacation. Two larger cities, Kailua and Hawaii Kai, are only about 10 minutes away with many restaurants and shopping possibilities.

We also have another house on the property, our Aloha Beach Cottage which is located in the front of the lot, nearer the street. Inquire if you are looking to have a larger party wanting to stay on the same property. Each house has a private yard and they only share the driveway. The Aloha Getaway Beach House has it's privacy with it's own gate to the beach and yard.

If you are looking to experience the real Hawaii then our place is for you. We are located in an area which the Hawaiians refer to as 'God's Country'!

*Please note that we cannot host weddings, receptions or any other large parties on our property. We want to be a good neighbor.

About Eric Bennet

I was born and raised in Hawaii and live here with my son. I have owned other businesses in the past (Subway Sandwiches, tour company, classic car restoration), but rarely have I had such satisfaction as when people stay at our property and have a wonderful vacation. Knowing that a family has enjoyed their stay in Hawaii and our house reminds me of the joy I had as a both a child and father in Waimanalo and this house.

Eric Bennet purchased this house in 1980

Why Eric Bennet chose Waimanalo Beach

Our family has owned this property for over 30 years and we cherish it because of beauty of the area and the tranquility of the house and beach. It is in a quiet area with the best views on the island. I have great memories of our beach house as a kid with my family as well as with my son growing up on the beach. I hope that others can also have a great experience that will stay with them for the rest of their lives.

It is the opposite of Waikiki. No crowds. The water is clean and doesn't smell of sunscreen. Some days you can look down the beach and not see another soul for 100 yards. The protective outer reefs keep most of the swell from the soft sandy bottom beach. It is great for children and and much safer than the North Shore. Because it is located in a residential neighborhood, there are few tourists, and Waimanalo is the least crowded and beautiful beach on the island.

What makes this house unique

The view from the house and beach is incredible. I cannot overstate the wonderful feeling of sitting outside on the deck and taking in the beauty of the beach, sea, mountains, and sky. The beach is soft white sand, the ocean turquoise blue and the majestic mountains green. Rabbit Island, Kāohikaipu Island State Seabird Sanctuary, the Mokulua Islands, and the Makapuu Lighthouse (a popular hike) are all visible from the house.

Get away from the crowds and relax. Isn't that what a vacation is all about?

A little slice of paradise right on Waimanalo Beach

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented this house for ourselves and a few friends. The house was perfect! We couldn't have asked for a better place to spend such a special week. The property owner was so helpful and took the time to answer our questions and show us around. The house was well maintained and the rooms were very comfortable. There was plenty of room for all of us (7). The view of the mountains and beach from the house was breathtaking and the sound of the ocean rocked us to sleep.

We enjoyed being only steps from the beautiful sand bottom beach. Most of the time we felt like it was our own private beach. The kids had a blast playing in the water and catching waves on their boogie boards. It was so nice to have the house right there if we needed to grab a snack or drink.

The yard was huge and we enjoyed BBQ. There was also plenty of parking.

The house was conveniently located just down the street from a few different restaurants. Our favorites were Surge's mexican food, Keneke's for Hawaiian style plate lunch, and Sweet Home Waimanalo. There is also a McDonalds right down the road. It was also a short drive to Haunama Bay for snorkeling and only minutes away from the Makapu'u Lighthouse trail, which is a highly recommended easy quick hike. The views are amazing and so worth the 25-30min walk. Kailua Town is only a 5-10 minute drive away and town is only 20-30min away.

I hope that we can rent this house again sometime in the near future and I highly recommend staying at this house!!

Excellent location, most impressive views on Island

  • 5 of 5

Eric is a wonderful host, he responds immediately to even the most basic questions. The house is adorable. Clean and has all the amenities you would want. The views are simply amazing... from dining table and living room, even the Mountain View out kitchen window is breathtaking. Sitting on the patio daily was exactly what I envisioned... perfect ocean view. The beach sand is softest ever. The beach is not crowded yet the location is close to everything ( Hanauma bay, blow hole, Diamond Head, Waikiki etc) . The house was stocked with the following during our stay ( washer, dryer, laundry soap, dishwasher with soap, hand soap, new sponge, toilet paper, paper towels, trash bags, bath and beach towels ( 1 wash cloth), coffee maker with filters, boggie boards, beach chairs, some snorkel gear ( but we brought own), and very nicely stocked kitchen- we cooked often). There are 3 personal AC units which cool place perfectly. Wood floors throughout. The only couple noticeable items: there is some wear to home due to harsh weather conditions/ salt water environment- but so what, lol... you’re in Hawaii! And there are some man o wars in water. 4 of us and only one sting (me) and it hurt for about 10 mins. We would definitely return to this incredible location. PS market in town is great ( prices are way better than foodland or Safeway in town) . Maholo Eric!

Beachfront Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This beachfront property was perfect in every way. We have stayed in Kailua and in Honolulu locations in the past and were looking for a less-touristy secluded location. The beach cottage is directly on the beach which means we started each morning with coffee on the beach before adventuring - and ended each evening, again, enjoying the beach. The waves were great - we did use the provided boogie boards. The beach was secluded and we felt like we had a private beach. We barbecued a couple of nights- eating outdoors- and it was very peaceful. We always like to try local cuisine and we didn't make it to all Waimanolo spots but we ate breakfast at The Hawaiian Cafe and it did not disappoint. The place was full of character, food was awesome, and the locals were so, so nice. We look forward to returning to Oahu and this cottage.

Spectacular property and spectacular view!

  • 4 of 5

The view from the living room is amazing! The beach is very nice and the waves are small which makes it a good place to enjoy the water. Watch out for man o' war which will come in the area when certain winds happen. We stayed for a week at the end of June and the beach was pretty empty. We felt like we had a private beach! There is also a nice tree in front of the house which provides shade while you're out on the beach. Be aware that the neighborhood is a little rough along the main highway nearby and that there are transients living in the park nearby. Even so, we experienced no problems while we were there. The house also has a safe and alarm. The house itself was older and needs a little work. The indoor shower was very cramped, there is no counter space, and the toilets flush poorly. The owner was very nice and responded quickly to questions and issues.

Great place to stay and was right on the beach

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our family vacation. Beautiful area and away from all the crowds where we could enjoy Hawaii. Homeowners were super nice and accommodating to all our request. You won’t find nicer people or a better location if you want privacy and beautiful ocean view.
