Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Come discover an area that has gone unnoticed for years. This will not be a vacation spent among a sea of tourists. 'Heavenly Moon' is located in the little village of Ewa Beach, which is located on Oahu's southwest shore. It is approximately 17 miles from the airport and 22 miles from Waikiki. Here you will experience old-style Hawaii where sunshine is plentiful.

You will love this quaint plantation-style home. It is located directly across the street from a beautiful stretch of white-sand beach where you can play in the gentle surf, take romantic strolls along the beach and enjoy the breathtaking beauty of our magnificent Hawaiian sunrises and sunsets.

Try your hand at shoreline fishing or just sit back, relax and watch the sea turtles feeding close to shore. A real treat is to catch sight of the local fisherman spearing fish in the reef. From the beach you can enjoy the view of Diamond Head during the day and the lights of Waikiki at night.

'Heavenly Moon' has beautiful hardwood floors and is adorned in Hawaiian-style furnishings. French doors lead onto a wooden lanai, which is perfect for dining or sipping tea, coffee, or your favorite iced drink. Please help yourself to the limes we have growing in the yard. It also has a covered carport and a hot/cold, outside shower.

'Heavenly Moon' offers the type of vacation setting we look for when we travel. Amenities include 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, Air Conditioning; DSL High Speed Internet Connection; TV/VCR in living room; 40" Flat screen TV in Master Bedroom, Washer/Dryer; Fully-equipped Kitchen with a Stove, Dishwasher, Refrigerator with Ice Maker, Coffee Pot, Microwave, Toaster, Blender, Dinnerware, Cookware; Starter Paper Products; Dishwashing Detergent; Laundry Detergent and Bath Soap; Gas BBQ Grill; Outside Hot/Cold Shower; Snorkel Fins & Masks; Beach Towels; Boogie Boards; Beach Chairs; Beach Mats; Ice Chest; Iron and Ironing Board; Games, including Dominoes, Cards, and Board Games.

If swimming, boogie boarding, surfing and sunbathing are not enough to keep you busy, nearby are six golf courses, Waikele Outlet Shopping Center (which includes name-brand stores Saks Fifth Avenue, Mikasa, and Ann Klein, to name a few), an awesome water park, and a 12-plex movie theater. You also can't miss visiting Pearl Harbor, the Bishop Museum, the Iolani Palace, and attending a luau. With all of these activities available, you will leave wishing you had more time here.

FOR LARGER FAMILY GROUPS - there is MORE SPACE 'right next door'!!! Our 'Cottage by the Ewa Sea' is also available should your group need more space. Please go to VRBO #952502 to view this lovely cottage.

Perfect location for the discovery of the island

  • 5 of 5

This place was perfect - situation just 60 steps from the shoreline of Ewa Beach in a quite neighborhood, with an own carport and well equipped, the house had three bedrooms (two rooms with a double bed and one with two single beds), two bathrooms (with shower and toilet), a kitchen and dining room plus a living room - all Hawaiian style with ceiling fans for a cool breeze. No air conditioning needed!

Anything we needed was there, even stuff for the beach (snorkeling equipment, beach chairs and - very useful! a cooler box which kept our soft drinks ice cold for the whole day when we explored the island.

It was very clean and cozy, and just quietly sitting on the porch in the evening was a delight.

Ewa Beach is located to the West of the airport, much easier to reach than Honolulu. There was a constant stream of airplanes coming and going to Oahu, but as the aircraft come in from the sea there is practically no noteworthy noise.

"Heavenly Moon" was for us the perfect starting point for explorations of the island: Pearl Habor is nearby, and the highways leading either north, west or east without having to travel through Honolulu.

The beach is nice, but we rarely went there, because the search for filming locations of the TV series Lost mostly brought us to the North side of Oahu, and there are nice beaches there as well.

The description was exact, the contact to the owner and the representative very nice. I would come back any time!

Owner's Response: Mahalo for your wonderful review. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay at the Heavenly Moon! We enjoyed hearing from you during your stay and our interactions. Just want to add that instead of double beds in 2 bedrooms, we have a California King bed in the master bedroom and a queen bed in the 2nd room. The 3rd room of course has 2 twin beds. We also have a tub/shower combination in both bathrooms, so families with children are aware we have a huge tub in one and a standard tub in the other. We do have AC in all the bedrooms, though as you point out, leaving windows open works very well in letting our Hawaiian breeze/tradewinds cool the house. I'm glad you found our location convenient to all the places you visited and that you found our house well equipped even for your outings! Thank you so much for taking the time to write us a great review. We hope that you can come again in the future! Aloha, Dolly and David Langen, owners

This was a wonderful rental!!

  • 5 of 5

The house was fantastic, everything that was advertised! It was very clean and beautifully maintained. It was great for our 2 teens to each have their own bedroom. The welcome basket was such a nice touch, and provided us with snacks for the week! The bath was spacious, with a large whirlpool tub, overhead skylights, and wall-mounted shampoo, conditioner, and soap dispenser. The kitchen was well furnished. There were plenty of beach towels and beach equipment available for us to use. The beach is just across the street and down a short path, and it is quiet and friendly. The location was perfect - away from the hustle and bustle of Waikiki/Downtown, but easy access to practically everything, from Ko Olina to Diamond Head. Having AC and ceiling fans in each room was also nice on those warm days. The washer and dryer are new and worked great. We loved the off-street covered parking - no hot car to get into - and a nice privacy gate for the driveway made us feel very secure. We would love to come back to this property, and would whole-heartedly recommend this to anyone.

Beautiful home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Heavenly Moon was our home for a little over a week while vacationing in Oahu. A very cozy beach house, welcomes you right at patio, the inside is well decorated giving you the Hawaiian feel right away. It has a beautiful garden in the front yard, the flowers give me joy while relaxing in the patio. The place was clean and ready for our stay. It's in a quiet neighborhood, just a few steps to the beach, we walk there every morning for the cool breeze and again in the afternoon to watch the sun sets. It's easily accessible, you can drive all over Oahu and at the end of the day it's a place to come home to and just relax.'

A very quaint Hawaiian home and community

  • 5 of 5

This was a very enchanting authentic home. My daughter-in-law, who is from Fiji found the home and community to be very much like parts of Fiji. It was definitely nice to be so close to the beach so that we could enjoy Honolulu from a distance. When a place lists that is can accommodate 6 people I definitely like the idea that everyone is provided a room to sleep in rather than sleeping on couches in the living room. There were many services available in the town of Ewa Beach and the drive into Honolulu was not a long drive. The individual who helps with the booking of the location is extremely helpful and a joy to work with in planning your trip.

Owner's Response: We are so grateful that you and your 'ohana/family enjoyed 'Heavenly Moon.' Providing comfortable sleeping arrangements is high on our priority list, we're glad the bedrooms and beds served your family well. Sounds like you spent time hanging out close to your 'island home' as well as enjoying other parts of Oahu, then returning to the 'comforts of home.' Much Aloha and please come see us, again!

What a great week!

  • 5 of 5

A truly enjoyable experience. The personal service from Ilene as well as speaking with the owners themselves made me feel like they really cared about the people who stayed there. The place was quiet, close to the beach, and perfect for the 6 of us (my husband and I, my sister and her husband, our daughter and 14 month old granddaughter). They had strollers, a pack n play, beach toys, and a fenced in yard to make the stay more pleasant and convenient for people with young children. The location in Ewa Beach meant traveling to Honolulu and Waikiki for some tours and other activities we wanted to do but we were aware of this when we booked the property. As long as you allow adequate travel time, I felt like this location was much better than being right in the middle of Honolulu and Waikiki. I would strongly recommend this to others looking for a quiet, comfortable, affordable place to stay close to the beach but still within a reasonable distance to all the activities Oahu has to offer. Mahalo!
