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.

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.

We had a great stay with our family of 6. Waimānalo Beach is gorgeous and we enjoyed using all the gear—sea kayaks, surf boards, etc. The house was comfortable and we liked being out of the busy city areas and yet close enough to go to Kailua and Honolulu when we wanted to. Thanks!
Awesome! Perfect beach & house!
We had a great vacation staying here! The beach was the nicest beach I have ever been on, not crowded, very sandy with little to no rocks and shells to step on and I never saw sea weed. We did go to Waikiki beach for a day after a fishing excursion we were on, and we were so disappointed with Waikiki after being spoiled with the beach we were staying at. After 10 mins at Waikiki beach, we packed up and came home to our beach. We enjoyed using their surf boards, boogie boards, beach chairs, cooler, tent and snorkel gear. The house was cute and clean. It was a little bit longer walk to the beach than I was expecting, but we enjoyed the walk. I recommend driving to Costco or Target for groceries. Any of the local stores are a lot higher priced. There was so much to do and see on the Island. If we are lucky enough to make it back to the island, we would definitely stay here again. Mark and his wife were super helpful and available for tips and advice. We had an awesome vacation! Thank You
Best location, amenities and value!
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.
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.
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.
Not much to say as it sounds like they had a fantastic trip other than the weather (not much we can do in that dept).
We strive to deliver a 5 star experience for all of our guests. However, its hard to make everyone happy....even when they have a great trip.
Surfing, Surfing, Surfing. Beach is not known as a surfing beach and is safe for children of all ages but there is great surfing year round just a few minutes away. Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve is just 10 minutes away and is known for its amazing snorkeling.
If you have any questions at all the owners are on property downstairs. They'd be glad to help you out!
