Waimanalo Beach House Rental Photos and Description

A perfect peaceful getaway on the best beach on the island

Our beautiful Aloha Beach Cottage is located on a beachfront lot tucked in behind the beachfront house. Each house has a private yard and they only share the driveway. The beautiful and secluded white sand beach stretches about 2 ½ miles in either direction. Gentle waves make it perfect for all to enjoy the wonderful, clear, warm water. The beach is a minute or two away. Our yard and garden are full of tropical trees and plants - bananas, mangoes, papaya, and coconut which you are free to pick and enjoy (when in season).

Our 1150 square foot home has two bedrooms and one bath, a kitchen and dining/living area, and is located on a beach front property! It is fully furnished, and also includes amenities such as air conditioning, TV, wireless internet access, washer/dryer, grill, hammock, beach toys, and more.

Sea Life Park, Sandy Beach, and Hanauma Bay are right down the road and two larger cities, Kailua and Hawaii Kai, are only about 10 minutes away with many restaurants and shopping possibilities. Only 25 minutes from Waikiki and Honolulu.

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

*********************************August 2016 Update******************************

We have already updated the interior furnishings in the bedrooms and living area. We have installed quiet split A/C systems in all of the rooms and updated the bathroom with a new shower. The outside patio has a new teak table and chairs and hammock. We installed a pergola with mood lighting over the patio area for soft outdoor evenings. We also added digital cable with over 300 channels for those who can't miss the big game or their favorite TV show. We expanded the garden towards the back of the house and are constantly adding new trees and plants to beautify the property. We really do want to create a living space that makes your stay relaxing and memorable. We want our guests' experience to be 5 STAR!

About Eric Bennet

I was born and raised in Hawaii and live here with my wife, son, and baby daughter. 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 property.

Eric Bennet purchased this house in 1980

Why Eric Bennet chose East Oahu

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. Waimanalo is the least crowded and simply the most beautiful beach on the island.

What makes this house unique

The view from the beach is incredible. The ocean is 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 beach in front of the house.

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

Great rental in Waimanalo!

  • 5 of 5

I had a great time at the rental in Waimanalo.

The house was just as described. It had air conditioning in all rooms, a full kitchen, comfortable bedrooms and a great patio to sip on a beverage! The house was only 2 minutes away from the sandy beach, a short walk to a local market and local restaurants.

Everyone was very kind and helpful. The sandy beach and the ocean were great. Water temperature was very comfortable and the waves small enough for all.

I would highly recommend this rental to all and I would definitely stay here again.

Thanks again Eric (the owner) for a great place to vacation.

Beautiful place on a fabulous beach

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in this wonderful cottage. The beach was a one minute walk, perfect for children, and had few people. The house has new AC units, which keep the house nice and cool.

Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us!

Great location to the best beach in Hawaii.

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for one week with my wife and three children ages 17, 14, 10. Cottage was clean, stocked and had great access to Waimanalo Beach. If you are looking for a quiet, uncrowded beach vacation at a reasonable price you would have a difficult time beating this place. I definitely plan on staying here again on a future Oahu trip.

Absolute paradise !!

  • 5 of 5

My dad, grandmother and I all stayed in this lovely cottage and it was everything and more! The 2 min walk to the gorgeous beach with hardly anyone there during the week was perfect! The safety of the alarm and safe box was a relief for the week. The outside sitting area was so private and serene, the hammock was my favorite spot! Loved it!! We used the washer and dryer and BBQ which were awesome to have! We will definitely be back to Waimanelo and Eric's cottage!!

Perfect for our family!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the beach front cottage during my son's wedding week. Variety of ages including a one year old. The quiet beach was exquisite! We all body surfed and built sand castles and took long quiet walks. Mornings we stepped onto the deck with our cups of coffee and sat down to visit at the picnic table and watch the peaceful waves. Eric and his wife were so sweet and easy to talk to about anything we wished. Our kids, big and small had an absolute BLAST! Part of the wedding party stayed in Waikiki but this was perfect for us. I felt relaxed letting my kids run around in the beach (Jr high age). Most everything was provided. We stocked up at Costco the first night but much of the extras we thought we'd need were there! A yummy food stand was a couple of blocks away and quite a bargain compared to the more popular tourist sites. Eric was very interested in what he could do to improve things. We were grateful for boogie boards and chairs and towels and sunscreen and a hammock. My son in law sleep outside in the hammock under the stars. Small, but well-stocked. Older, but clean. If you prefer quiet, swimmable beaches as opposed to crowds with selfie sticks, this is your place. We weren't ready to leave! Eric, if you ever want some industrial design improvements, I think you still have my email!
