About the property

Located in the Waimanalo Beach Lots, which is only 30 minutes from Honolulu and Waikiki. Waimanalo Beach is one of the largest, cleanest, and most private beaches on Oahu. This white sand beach is very safe so you can relax and not have to worry as your family enjoys the ocean. Get away from the hustle and bustle and escape to this #1 rated pristine beach.

Then enjoy everything this all-inclusive house has to offer. You will have everything at your fingertips to have a great time on the beach. Relax in the beach chairs or take the surfboards (4), kayaks (4), or boogie boards (2) out on the beach and catch some waves. If the water is flat use the snorkeling masks and fins (Quality equipment and enough for the whole group) to see what’s beneath the surface. For the more ambitious ones in the group discounts are available on scuba diving, dolphin and whale watching tours, and many other activities.

After your day’s activities relax on the covered porch and listen to the waves roll in. Make dinner in the full kitchen or throw some burgers on the gas grill. Large living area with TV and DVD. The dining table has seating for 8 and kitchen bar has seating for four. The kitchen has everything you will need. There is also a washer and dryer in the unit so you can pack a little lighter.

The master bedroom has AC but you won't need it as the cool trade wind breeze blows in the sounds and smells of the ocean. 2nd bedroom has 2 twin beds and the living room has 2 queen futons for additional guests.

About Mark

I grew up in the Midwest and moved to Oahu in 2002 for my love of the Ocean. There is nowhere else on Oahu I would rather live than the windward side of the island (East Side). I have my own Real Estate Company called Petritz Realty. I specialize in investment real estate and income producing properties. My wife Holly and I do the property management on our properties as well as for friends and family. Please let me know if you are interested in looking at Real Estate while you are here with us. I look forward to meeting you. Warm Aloha,

Mark & Holly

Mark purchased this house in 2005

Why Mark chose Waimanalo Beach

I bought this house for a couple simple reasons LOCATION, Location, Location. Its just a very short walk from the nicest beach on the island (Rated Best Beach USA in 2015 (Forbes)). I can't imagine ever selling this property.

What makes this house unique

As you will notice if you read my online guestbook, we make all of our toys available to our guests. I have a pile of boogie boards, 4 or more surfboards, 4 or more kayaks, and quality snorkeling gear for your whole group. I invite you to bring your children down to feed the Koi in the pond and am always available if you have any questions. Yes, this also includes the occasional call for directions should you happen to get lost or just have a question about the island.

Guestbook Comment

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful vacation at Mark's place. Very comfortable and easy access to the beach. We loved this side of the Island. Normally we stay near Wakiki. This was much more laid back and the locals were awesome. We loved our vacation. Sorry it had to end.

Thanks, Mark for a great place to live for a week!

Best location, amenities and value!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at this home. Good clean house with nice rooms and lanai. The #1 benefit we enjoyed was central location with easy access to so much. Easy walk to the beach. Mark has a nice guidebook in the hosue with local recommendations. We hiked makapu'u lighthouse, koko crater, lanikai pillboxes, maunawili falls. Visited Sea Life Park. Snorkeled Hanauma bay twice. It's close to Kailua with grocery stores and restaurants galore. We really enjoyed the food right in waimanalo... Ono's steak and shrimp shack (our favorite), Keneke's, and L&L BBQ.

Other huge benefit of this place was all the extras. Boogie boards, surf boards, beach toys, hot tub, etc. Would have loved to use the kayaks if it had been a bit less windy. Next time!

A couple things I think are worth mentioning for prospective guests are, the rental is the upstairs of the house with private entrance. The owner lives below, and we didn't hear them at all. They do have some friendly dogs, which also wasn't a problem and barely heard them. But you may encounter them when using the hot tub in back yard. Lastly it is near the main road and we did hear the sound of traffic most of the time while at the house. And children singing in the mornings. Again not really a problem, the only thing is if you were looking for a super quiet, romantic getaway spot, this might not be it. Overall I would say this is the best VALUE for your money, especially for a group like a family.

Perfect Location for Island Girl & Family!

This house was perfect for our group. Walking distance to the beach, beautiful makapuu lighthouse hike and Mark was easy to work with. We will stay here again for sure.

Great location, really enjoyed our stay.

  • 5 of 5

The house was a little dated, but the location was awesome! We were able to walk to the most beautiful beach numerous times per day. The kids loved the beach toys that were provided. Since we came for the commissioning of my son's Naval ship, we did not use the additional beach supplies (snorkeling, kayaks, wave boards, etc.) But it would have been great if we had the opportunity!

The property had a few issues we worked out.

  • 3 of 5

This property is right off the main road with a small church/church school across the street. Hearing the children singing is very heart warming and cute.

We love the Waimanalo Beach area. All the Beach toys were available as promised.

Be sure to review the binder at the house for local information and things to do (very informative).

We never used the hot tub as we were very busy during the days, BBQ and enjoyed the deck in the evenings.

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Mark and Holly were very kind and helpful hosts. The beach at Waimanalo was perfect--beautiful, not crowded, great boogie boarding for amateurs like us, even caught more fish here than anywhere else. Used gear everyday. Overall location fantastic, too--close to Hanauma Bay and Kailua amenities. Slept with windows open, woke to roosters crowing. Fit our family of five beautifully. Only downside---leaving.

If you have any questions at all the owners are on property downstairs. They'd be glad to help you out!
