Overview

Oahu House Rental Photos and Description

The perfect tropical beach getaway...

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.

We recently updated the decor of the house and installed split A/C systems for all the rooms. Our kitchen remodel will be completed by the end of April 2016.

Our Aloha Getaway Home is a quiet, peaceful place to spend your vacation. Two larger cities, Kailua and Hawaii Kai, are only about 10 minutes away with many restaurants and shopping possibilities.

We also have another house on the property, our Aloha Beach Cottage which is located in the front of the lot, nearer the street. 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'!

About Eric Bennet

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

Why Eric Bennet chose 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 view tourists, and Waimanalo is the least crowded and beautiful beach on the island.

What makes this house unique

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?

A little slice of paradise right on Waimanalo Beach

  • 5 of 5

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!!

Right on the beach!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and another couple enjoyed a week at this amazing beach house. The home is clean and functional and just enough green space to feel like you have your own piece of paradise. You are literally 20 yards from the sand! Throw down under the shade of the tree and enjoy a perfect day at the beach. Close to coffee, breakfast, lunch, etc. All in all its the best deal at Waimanalo beach! Well be back for sure!

Beautiful view.

  • 5 of 5

The view and beach are perfect. The house is nothing special but is clean and just as advertised. Close enough to Waikiki but far enough away from all the hustle and bustle. We loved it.

Eric's Beach Home

  • 5 of 5

Our family was completely satisfied and very happy with our stay at Eric's Beach House. Eric was very polite and helpful. He was always just a phone call away for any questions we had. The beach house had absolutely breathtaking sunrises. We felt very much at home in Eric's cozy beach cottage. The beach location was perfect. We look forward to our next visit!! Thank you, Eric

Mission Accomplished!

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriends and I were looking for a place to decompress and enjoy girl time.

Eric's place was perfect! I've always stayed in either kailua or lanikai, but it's getting over populated and too many tourists being dropped off on buses.

We seriously had the beach to ourselves. The water is drop dead gorgeous, the sand soft.

Walking out the door and being on the beach with a cup of hot coffee watching the sunrise every morning was magical. Being able to replenish afternoon drinks without lugging a cooler, priceless

The house was comfy. We were sad our stay came to an end.

We will be back!

Great house!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 5 night at this wonderful house.

It's right on the beach, comfortable and clean.

Eric was very responsive when we needed his help.

We didn't want to leave and will definitely stay here again.
