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 ½ bathrooms, a large living and dining room (which includes two full size sleeper sofas that convert to 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.

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'!

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
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.
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?
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!!
The beach here is awesome---quiet! Perfect boogie boarding waves! Lots of fun! Clean water, natural beach---perfect! Just as I would imagine Hawaii before it was full fledge "Hawaii"! The house is an older beach cottage, but the beds were comfy, the futons were comfy, kitchen was workable, and the dining table held us all! We would go back if the opportunity arises! Family of 8
We have stayed at this beautiful house for 10 days and enjoyed every minute of it! It is spacious, and clean, has nice appliances and most importantly A/C in all rooms! In Hawaii it is important , especially if you travel with small children or feel the need to cool off in the middle of a hot day.
This house is located right on the magnificently quiet beach and even though it was not our first stay at Waimanalo we were amazed by the beauty of the sunrises, that can be observed from the deck or living room!
Eric, the owner was very nice and pleasant to deal with!
The yard is well maintained and my toddler had a blast running around barefoot while we sat around and enjoyed evening breeze!
So, the only advice would be to keep your shoes inside of the house. My brother had left two pairs of his shoes outside during one of the nights and they went missing in the morning. But, despite that we would definitely come back in a heartbeat!
Gorgeous view with direct beach access through the backyard gate. Kitchen had all your basic cookware and utensils, also blender, rice cooker, and coffee machine. There are two bedrooms (each with one bed) One bedroom faces the ocean and had 7 wonderful nights sleeping with the window open and falling asleep to the sound of the ocean. There are two futons in the living room. A flat screen television with cable TV and on demand. Living room faces the ocean and has two large windows with beach view. Back yard had a nice patio with outdoor furniture that can seat 8-10 people and has a table umbrella. There's also an assortment of beach gear: chairs, boogie boards, floaties, buckets, sand toys. House also has a propane bbq grill, hammock and other outdoor furniture. The home is enclosed by a rock wall/fence and has a rolling gate. On the property there are two separate homes. One located closer to the street and the main home located ocean/beach front. We rented the main house. There is plenty of parking within the property for both homes. We met the two separate groups that rented the secondary home while we were there for a week and we never had trouble getting our vehicles in and out of the property (There's no need to ask anyone to move cars) There are also banana trees located on property. The main house has a completely separate yard and beach entrance from the secondary house. Only time we ran into the other group was when we were leaving the property. The house also has two full bathrooms (no tubs just showers) but it's kind of a weird setup. One bathroom has access from inside the home. The other bathroom is accessed from the outside, but both bathrooms are attached together and separated by a door. We just kept the joint door locked and treated it as two separate bathrooms, you just have to access the other one from the outside (next to the front door) The neighborhood is very quite and the beach is empty. Property is about 30 mins away from Waikiki. We didn't venture out to Waikiki much. Within walking distance is a 7-11 (no alcohol) but across the street is convenience store (sells alcohol) about a mile away is a grocery store. Beach is gorgeous and there's a nice tree line on the beach to provide shade. If you have a large group you can rent both house on property. Great location if your trying to get away from the tourist. Eric was a great host and responded promptly
A great place to stay for a family beach holiday at beautiful Waimanalo Beach. Our host Eric could not have been more helpful from fitting child car seats to cracking open coconuts - he was always most friendly and obliging. We had a great time at this house.
The view is spectacular!!! The house owner was out of town but his sister was responsive to our call and quickly provided the needs. Greatly appreciate that. Linens and decor of the house is pretty basic. It would be better if the floor is non carpet. Different lighting in the living room would give more home like mood. Our neighbor was super loud with music almost every night- till 11-12pm. Overall was a great stay. We would come back again. Thank you!!
We can arrange services at the house such as private yoga and massage. We also can connect you with water sports adventures like surfing, windsurfing, kiteboarding, stand up paddle boarding, and kayaking.
