Excellent Place to Stay on Oahu!
Karen was so easy to work with and so accommodating to our needs! Even tho the owners are right next door, we hardly ever saw them, but if we needed something or had questions, they were right there to help!
The home was perfect for our needs! We had five adults and one toddler, and the home was the perfect size, we never felt like we were on top of each other, and the two full size bathrooms were wonderful to have! The kitchen had everything we needed to cook our own meals and there was enough seating around the table for five, but we ate outside on the patio table a lot. The living area is great with two couches, two large chairs, an ottoman and tables, plus a tv with the most dvd's available I've ever seen! The washer and dryer were awesome to have available!
Let's talk about the view! Amazing! The front door is actually where the kitchen/dining room is and the windows are where the living area is, so you are looking out at the ocean from the main part of the house! There is plenty of privacy, although the houses are very close together and you can sometimes hear the neighbors talking if they are outside. No big deal to us tho!
The beach is amazing and the snorkeling is good, it was hard to swim out past some of the reef with the waves, but some of us eventually made it out there. The coral is beautiful! It was greener and brighter than Hanama Bay, but not as many fish to see. There is also a nice sandy swimming hole just a few houses down.
I thought the location of this home was perfect! It's in a quiet neighborhood where everyone is friendly. We were able to drive almost anywhere on the island in less than an hour (except once when we hit heavy traffic and construction). That being said, avoid rush hour traffic at all cost! Some of our family got caught in rush hour traffic and it will take a lot longer to get to your destination! At first you think you are far away from everything, but if you don't mind driving a bit (I love the scenery), then the location is great. This home is in a quiet residential area, so if you want the hustle and bustle of Waikiki, this is not the place for you. There are plenty of restaurants, shops and grocery stores in the area. Walmart is 7 miles away (take your own carry out bags). There are quite a few local eateries if you are looking for good Hawaiian food.
Karen was an excellent host and we LOVED our stay at her home! I would recommend this beach rental to everyone!
Fabulous family fun
We came as a family to see our son who is stationed in Hawaii. The house worked out perfectly. Plenty of room for all, beautiful sunrise and sunsets. Neighbors were great and owner was Very accommodating and understanding. Would differently recommend to others.
Great ocean view
Great ocean view.
We had a lovely time in the sweet cottage on the beach. We used the sand chairs and beach towels provided by our host and hostess. Our morning coffee sunrise and evening sunsets were stunning!
The only reason we aren’t giving this property a perfect score is because there wasn’t A/C (I somehow missed that on the listing). While it was clearly evident the owner was extremely thoughtful and provided MANY fans, a bed jet, etc., it just wasn’t enough to cut the heat and humidity of the summer and left us with restless sleep. Having said that, we truly loved this location and would definitely visit again in the cooler months, but would unfortunately choose another location in the summer....but that’s ONLY because of the A/C. The property was clean, the kitchen was well supplied so I was able to cook full meals, and did I mention the beach?! It was absolutely stunning! There were also board games (which our kids loved) and many movies (although we literally turned on the TV once to see if it worked and that was it, lol). We truly enjoyed our stay...minus the A/C.
Quintessential Hawaiian Vacation
Karen’s home was just perfect, she was a lovely host along with her husband. What more could you want then waking up to the beach and ocean their backyard. Their home was well stocked with all the necessary items in the house and for the beach. The beds were all very comfortable. Her neighbors are really friendly and sweet. Our daughters loved walking about five houses down to Silvia’s Store the neighborhood market to buy ice cream and snacks. It was also convenient for us to get ice and alcohol. My husband appreciated living like a local during our stay without the chaos of a hotel, elevators, walking a long way caring all the beach items, crowds and noise of Honolulu. We actually just bought groceries and enjoyed making meals vs. going out and that normally doesn’t happen during a vacation but we just felt so at home. It was the perfect vacation for our family and we know we will make it back to Ewa Beach in the future.
