About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths

TidBIT: King Kamehameha II had a vacation home in Ewa Beach. He also mined salt nearby at White Plains in Kanehili.

Enjoy the comforts of a private, beachfront home on Ewa Beach Road. Ewa Beach Road has a small, sleepy beach-town atmosphere. Watch endangered birds, sealife, and flora from the lawn or sit with the sandcrabs on the beach. Spend quality family time tucked away in a well-furnished, traditional, beachfront home on sunny Ewa Beach Road with the convenience of shopping centers, banks, restaurants (personal favorite is Russo's coal-fired pizzas), and Hoakalei Resort just a mile away.

Get the local experience and have Karen, your host, show you everyone's favorite swimming spot. She can show you the birds she rescues and tell you where to go to see ancient ruins. Our local experience includes ukulele playing neighbors, fishing, relaxing with the wine-sipping group at sunset, and walking miles of natural shoreline.

Have a romantic dinner at sunset under the umbrella on the lanai. Help yourself to the Rosemary. They make excellent skewers for the BBQ.

The kitchen is equipped with microwave, china, crystal, cookware, coffee pot, toaster, etc. There are surf boards, boogie boards and swim fins in Hale Menehune (small shed) along with flippers, chairs, mats and sand toys.

The master bedroom to the east has a comfortable queen bed and private bath. The children's room on the northwest has two twin beds. The southwest facing bedroom has a queen-sized bed in an oriental theme.

The property is fenced to provide security and privacy. You can join the excitement downtown or sit on the beach lawn and enjoy the Honolulu city lights. The view of Diamond Head is unobstructed. The sunrises are warm and wonderful. The colorful sunsets are relaxing and the moon is cause for song.

Come prepared for the sun or stop at any of the convenient stores along the way for sunscreen. Do not purchase any sunscreen with oxybenzone. Marine scientists identified the chemical found in more than 3,500 sunscreen products, as a threat to coral reefs. Legislation is underway to ban the sale of sunscreens with oxybenzone.

Explorers of the ocean are encouraged to use a mineral-based sunscreen. These sunscreens contain zinc, zinc oxide and titanium oxide – all of which are completely safe for coral and available in stores in Ewa Beach and beyond.

Christian-owned and operated, smoking is not permitted on the property and the State does not allow smoking on the beach. More than 2 million butts were found on our coastal shores on one day of cleanup. That's twice the amount of food wrappers and containers found on that day. Our shore birds eat the butts and die of starvation. We need to step up and help our environment to be able to continue to be the paradise everyone enjoys.

Thank you for your understanding and your effort to sustain the beauty of Hawaii. W00960618-01

About Karen

I used to enjoy pole fishing, and in 2004, my friend talked me into accompanying him on a fishing trip in his 16-foot boat. Dinner was great.

Today my interests are in rescue work with birds and a few dogs. I'm an active member of Wild Bird Rehab Haven, Inc. and Basenji Rescue.

Karen purchased this house in 1994

Why Karen chose Hawaii

You are on the beach at Ewa Beach with the best view on the island. You can walk miles of natural shoreline. The weather in Ewa Beach is wonderful. The surf is gentle and the waters safe. Songs have been sung for decades about the Ewa Moon and our pearly shells. This is nature at its best.

What makes this house unique

The sunsets on Ewa Beach are so picturesque and relaxing. The sunrise is awesome. There's a freshness in the air and excitement as the day unfolds with discoveries of shells washed ashore during the night. It's fun to make the first footsteps in the sand.

Guestbook comments from the owner

From the San Francisco Chronicle, Mar 3, 02.

"Secluded Oahu beachfront retreat

Weary of the noise and crowds of Waikiki, we were

delighted to discover a tranquil beachfront house on

the southwest coast of Oahu that reminded us of the

rustic charm of old Hawaii.

Hale Kahakai Ewa offers all the comfort and amenities

of a home away from home - including full kitchen,

washer/dryer and complimentary use of beach equipment

- for an unbelievably good value for families and

small groups. We enjoyed romantic moonlight walks on

uncrowded beaches, with gorgeous views of Diamond Head

and the Waikiki skyline a short drive away..."

Wonderful Family Holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We had SUCH a great time staying at the beach house in Ewa! The kids rolled out of bed and right down to the beach practically every morning while I was able to relax on the lawn. Close proximity to shops, restaurants, grocery stores, etc. Super easy to find from the airport with easy access to attractions such as Pearl Harbour, the Dole pineapple plantation and the North Shore but away from the madness of Honolulu. My sister and I met in Hawaii to run the Honolulu Marathon and she went running very early every morning in the surrounding neighbourhood, which was safe and clean. If super touristy commercial glitz is your thing, this property is not for you - it was more like we were just living on the beach (although twice, we drove over and checked out Waikiki for the day). The house is well equipped with lots of beachy toys for the kids to play with, BBQ grill, ice chest, table/chairs inside and out, and TONS of travel guides all around the house (plus practical things like a fully equipped kitchen, wifi and laundry facilities). A couple of houses down the street is a tiny little shop with cold drinks, chips/crisps, etc - a couple of times we walked down with the kids for a little afternoon treat. We had a great, great time and can't wait to go back.

Very Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this beach house, my family each had a beautiful room and enjoyed the beach and the gorgeous view of Waikiki and Diamond Head. It is close to every thing, it was a nice drive to the Dole Plantation, Disney Resort ( Lobster Roll was Amazing ) Germaine's Luau and Waikiki/ Pearl Harbor was only 25 min away. Karen is so sweet, helpful and a wonderful host. It was so nice to relax and the house is a good size where everyone can do their own thing, play cards, watch movies (the most DVD's I have seen in my life) read a magazine, watch the view or swim in the ocean. It was nice to BBQ and have family dinners and big home made breakfast together. I love hearing the ocean at night when I was falling a sleep, it was so relaxing. I can not wait to go back.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This was the ideal place for our family meeting together to attend our son's wedding. We were able to enjoy visiting with family members we hadn't seen in years. Staying together in the beach house was very accommodating compared to staying at different hotels scattering throughout Oahu. The beach was perfect--we really enjoyed sitting out on the beach in the morning, looking for shells, and of course playing in the ocean. Karen was the perfect hostess and the home had everything we needed to enjoy our stay.

Hawaii 2016

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I took our first trip back to Oahu since 1999 and we couldn't have been more pleased. Our house was exactly as described which is always a pleasant surprise. The owner Karen who lives on the property was extremely gracious and had lots of extra swimming gear in her shed for our use. We left at 8am and returned many times after 6 and the grandkids would take off and go swimming a few doors down from the property. The coral reefs directly across from the house prevented a direct dip but it wasn't far to a cleared swim area. The only draw back is the beach isn't conducive to daily strolls as the beach dips quite severely from the lawn area to the ocean. But if you want a relaxing vacation with all the amenities of home and the most gorgeous sights of Diamond Head and Wikiki Beach this is the home for you. Thank you Karen for opening up your home to us we had a fabulous vacation...Aloha

Family loved it

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Oahu, and this place helped make it so memorable. Easy access right out the back door to the ocean and beach, a swimming hole about 150' down the beach, grocery stores within a few minutes' drive; what's not to love? Oh, and our hostess and her family were so kind and helpful!

I will say that getting to the places on the north part of the island can take some time. We spent a lot of time driving back and forth, so if you plan to head up there a lot just be prepared for some driving. But it was still well worth it. No regrets here!
