"We spent a lovely two weeks here and we did not want to leave! The home is in a great location, steps to the beach. and great for taking day trips around the Island. Honolulu is only 20 mins, the north shore 45 min and KoOlina (where the lagoons are) only 20 min. The house is great for families, we were travelling with our three kids (8, 5 and 11 months), we needed comfort and we got it. Upon arrival we were met with a clean house, highchair and crib (as per request) and a lovely welcome basket of fruit and chocolate (THANK YOU). Brenda, the manager was very attentive when we called about the broken outside shower door and had someone fix it straightway. My only complaint about the house would be no vacuum cleaner, it was hard to keep the sand out and I had to sweep it in the corners so my 11 month would not eat it.
Being in a local community, slightly off the main tourist areas, there are less restaurants. If you like fast food then you are in heaven, but if not there are grocery stores nearby or drive to Honolulu or KoOlina. In Ewa we did try Fiesta (mexican grill), Teddy's bigger burger and ninja sushi (which were all very good). There is a shave ice place called Ewa seed co. that makes great shave ice. The kids loved it.
The house is in a fairly quiet neighbourhood, they do have a noise bylaw saying residents need to be quiet by 10 pm, although they had an exception on new years eve as it felt like we were in a war zone. Also the clean up after new years was pretty poor, the beach was littered with firework debris which was a shame. We also had a neighbour who lost his dog a few times and always seemed to be when we were putting the kids to bed. But overall it was still a pretty peaceful place to be.
We very much enjoyed our time here and would definitely consider returning in the future!"
