Recent Ewa Beach reviews

  • Wonderful base to explore the Island

    "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!"

  • Great Time in a Great House!

    "We stayed here with friends before, during and after our wedding on Oahu. The house was very nice, homey, roomy, well equipped with everything you need for the beach including towels, and a well stocked kitchen with everything to make whatever meal you'd like (minus the food of course, which was easily purchased at local grocery stores, or Costco nearby). Since it was Mid-June, it was very hot in the house except for the 2 bedrooms which have a/c, however even with the trade winds, the rest of the house was very very hot especially during mid day to evenings. There are ceiling fans in main room, kitchen and bedrooms, but there really needs to be another a/c in the living area since the other 2 are upstairs in bedrooms and cannot cool the entire house even with the portable fans. Overall, we had a fantastic time here, and I would recommend new curtains for the sliding back door, and rent during other times of the year that aren't quite so hot. As other reviews said, the neighborhood does look sketchy, however, it is just local working class people, and older retired locals. We were never worried about things being stolen or taken from the house while we were away. We were away a good majority of each day, and the location is great if you want some place quiet, easy shopping and parking for free! We hung out a lot in the backyard, had a cookout using the grill for hamburgers and hot dogs, it was perfect! I would give this house 5 stars, but with the massive heat inside the house, I just couldn't. However, everything else was perfect, great WiFi, DVD player, TV's were large and worked great, and the roomy kitchen was awesome! Beds were extremely comfortable which is a huge plus! (Safe in master bedroom closet isn't usable, however we felt very safe here without using it.) You should probably get beach shoes for walking on the beach as the sand is very course and does wear your soles of your feet down quickly. We gathered Sea Glass and some tiny shells on the beach each day to make some crafty items to remember our wonderful stay here! The lady who manages the house for Rick is amazing, she would come over and help with anything immediately and always very friendly. Neighbors to the right were very friendly as well! I have a friend who I recommended the house to and she's bringing her family in December! I hope she has half of the fun we had at this very special house! It truly was a wonderful experience! Thank you Rick for such a wonderful property! Mahalo!"

  • Simply Amazing Vacation Spot

    "My niece and I traveled to Oahu for her 30th birthday. After much deliberation, we chose Pam's condo in Makaha. It could not have been a more excellent choice. Pam was wonderful to deal with, replying promptly to my various questions and giving us so much wonderful information about the condo and the area. The condo is even more beautiful than the pictures show, and that lanai...I have no adequate description for the view from it. We spent HOURS out there- watching the waves, the surfers, the turtles, the spouting humpback whales, the boats, the morning sunbeams playing on the turquoise waves as it rose over the condo, and the stunning display it created as it dropped down into the ocean in the evening. It was lovely to fall asleep to and wake up to the sound of the crashing waves. We both enjoy cooking, so we had stopped for groceries on our way from Honolulu to Makaha (we rented a car). We were very happy with the various cooking and dining supplies Pam has used to stock the kitchen, and were able to enjoy our own meals on the lanai. The view makes good food even more delicious! :) We even used the lovely gas grill down in the common area one night. The bed in the condo was very comfortable, and the shower is amazing. The condo is tiny, but the layout, the mirrors and windows and doors, and Pam's bright mermaid theme all work together to create a bright, breezy feel. I appreciated the security of knowing that our rental car was safe inside a locked gate, and that the condo had limited access. Also, even with as large as the Cabanas is, I heard practically no noise from neighbors above, below, or an either side. Everyone was so helpful and respectful of others. The beach in front of the condo would collect a few people as the day progressed, but compared to the crowded eastern shore beaches we typically visit, this one felt like we had the place all to ourselves! The waves here are larger than we're used to, but the Ko'olina lagoons are not far; we went swimming there one afternoon. However, those large waves were an attraction that took us to the North Shore several times, just to watch the surfers. Traffic can be awful, but we were aware of that when we chose this location. We went on several day trips, but spent most of our time at the condo or the local attractions like Ka'ena Point, where we saw albatross, seals, and lots of whales. Our stay here was nothing short of amazing, and we both have so many lovely memories. Thank you, Pam!!"

  • Authentic Hawaiian Theme

    "We rented both Ewa and Hula Moon locations for our parents wedding anniversary, 10 adults. Both units were clean and decorated with a true Hawaiian theme. The beach was secluded, private, but rocky. I would not recommend it for small children as the currant and tide are quite strong. Dave the owner was fantastic when we told him one of the ceiling fans was broken – he came out within a few hours and replaced it! We knew the units didn’t have AC when we rented them, however it did not cool down much during mid- July and was quite warm in the evening to try to sleep. We recommend Germaine’s if you want to see a great Luau – only 25 minutes from Ewa Beach. Also make the drive to Kualoa Ranch on the north side of island, we took the Mountains – Jungle Expedition tour as well as the Ocean Voyage tour….both were excellent. Great place to eat there also and a souvenir shop that was awesome."
