About the property

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 house is not directly on the beach, but the beach is only about a minute walk. 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'!

We have recently 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 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 wonderful!

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 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. 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?

Good location with a house that needs significant updates

  • 3 of 5

The location was good. Right on the beach, and walking distance from two good restaurants (breakfast or lunch). A close drive to other good beaches, shopping, and restaurants. My family of 4 stayed in the cottage and my brother's family of 4 stayed in the main house. The ocean view from the main house was not too great because there was a wall and a lot of trees in the way. Much of the furniture was broken and old. There were too few kitchenware items to cook dinner for 8 people - the owner kindly delivered a few more upon our request. The air conditioning worked well although the homes have poor insulation requiring us to frequently adjust the air conditioning temperature. Each home had a washer and dryer which worked well. The supply of bathing soaps was minimal and we had to buy more. Both homes need some significant updates such as painting, new floors, larger and more modern showers, double pane windows, and lights with dimmers. Several of the beach chairs were broken, rusted, and uncomfortable. The owner kindly delivered two new chairs upon request. I do not plan on renting this home again the next time I visit the area.

Overall the place was just fine- beachy not at all fancy. Close to the beach, but not waterfront. Waimanalo is a beautiful and secluded beach. The waves are a little rough for really small children, but we were close enough to all of the best kid beaches so we were happy with the location. A car was stolen from one of the Waimanalo beach entrances while we were there. Be aware. Someone had left their keys on the beach while they went exploring and someone found the keys and figured out which car it was and stole it very quickly. The appliances are all new- as almost all of them went out while we were there. The owner was very helpful and even refunded some of our money. If you are looking for a somewhat secluded place away from the hustle of Waikiki I would recommend it.

location is excellent - quiet and close to the beach.

  • 3 of 5

Very easy going place, good for self cooking, close shopping for grocery, beautiful beach, few people. The appartment itself would need some renovation ( Unfortunately it was not very clean when we arrived, but the owner helped out. Great beach for kitesurfing is the wind is strong enough and if you are an experienced kitesurfer.

The property owner made sure that we got in ok and all was perfect. The cottage was beautiful and clean. It was perfect. We had the best time and loved not only the cottage but the area, and of course the amazing beach. Super quiet and safe!!! We got married on the beach in front of the property. ( it was just the two of us, the minister and photographer). It was so romantic and private. It could not have been any better. Thank you so much!!!

Quiet, comfortable, and private. Truly amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Away from the hustle and bustle of Waikiki, this quaint cottage offers all the comforts of home while only minutes from the city. Just a few steps from the water, it's like having your own private beach. The owner provided beach chairs, boogie boards and even beach towels. Ceiling fans throughout and sliding windows offer the tropical breeze to keep you cool but still have the option of turning on the A/C. Amenities include an adequately supplied kitchen plus a washer and dryer, tv and wifi. Gated driveway, tropical plants, patio table and chairs are a nice option for private, outdoor dining. Our family won't hesitate to stay here again!!! Mahalo Eric for providing us with a memorable stay!!!
