Living on the Ewa Plain: A Guide

Fifteen miles west of Honolulu and Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam lies Oahu’s “Second City” of Kapolei and Ewa Beach. The former plantation community has been transformed in recent years to offer new housing developments – from luxurious homes located on nationally ranked golf courses to affordable housing for first-time homebuyers. Relative to price, homes in Ewa Beach tend to be larger than in other areas of Oahu. Many Ewa homes can qualify for USDA loans in addition to VA and conventional loan options, allowing homebuyers to put down a minimal amount of money for an Ewa home.

Ewa is comprised of more than 60 neighborhoods. From the open-concept kitchen, new 5-bedroom homes of Woodbridge, to Ewa Beach oceanfront homes on 20,000+ square foot lots, to golf course condominiums in the Townhomes at Fairways, Ewa offers an abundance of housing options for all types of homebuyers.

Ewa boasts numerous retail and dining options, along with public and private schools. One of Oahu’s newest malls, Ka Makana Ali‘i, features more than 100 stores, restaurants and a state-of-the-art Consolidated Theatre. Ewa Beach is also slated for more resort-style amenities at Wai Kai in the luxury micro-neighborhood of Hoakalei. The plans for this waterfront retail, dining and entertainment center in Ewa Beach include more than 110 retail establishments, a 52-acre recreational lagoon, a specialty market, a health club and spa, and the world’s largest man-made surfing wave.

Despite the rapid residential and commercial development, surfing, hiking, and, of course, golfing, along with other outdoor activities typical of Hawaii, can be found nearby. Ko Olina's resorts and lagoons, as well as White Plains beaches and surf spots, are only short drives away. Landscaped golf courses and planned residential communities add to Ewa’s charm.

Living in Ewa means both the convenience of modern living, with lots of new amenities and a plethora of nearby activities.

What's the real estate like on the Ewa Plain?

Ewa homeReal estate in Ewa, Hawaii, can be less expensive than some other parts of Oahu. Due to its location, Ewa homebuyers may be able to qualify for USDA loans, which often offer terms for 0% down. With the planned construction of thousands of residential units over the next couple of decades, it is no wonder that the average home age is around 20 years in Ewa Beach and seemingly decreasing. Some of the new Ewa residential developments include the Golf Villas at Lokahi Greens, Ho‘onani at Ewa and Hoakalei Residences.

What kind of homes can you buy in Ewa?

Ewa has a range of housing options. There are newer homes from major home developers, such as Castle & Cooke, DR Horton, Haseko and Gentry, as well as older plantation homes built in the late 1940s. There are single-family homes, condominiums, townhouses and even executive houses on larger lots in gated golf course communities.

Ewa’s diverse housing options make it a neighborhood for all types of homebuyers – whether first time homebuyers, expanding families, downsizing empty nesters, single professionals or military families. Read more about Ewa’s diverse micro-neighborhoods and the housing each neighborhood offers here.

Since Ewa homes are in demand and inventory is limited, the Ewa real estate market is competitive. When a home is listed for sale, it is typically under contract with limited days on the market. The average single-family home and condo values are typical of the Oahu housing market.

Where is Ewa?

Ewa is close enough to downtown Honolulu via Fort Weaver Road, yet still far enough to “get away” from the urban core. Fort Weaver Road is basically the only way in and only way out to get to Honolulu, or “Town,” as locals call Oahu’s main city, and this road can have major traffic during rush hour. Ewa’s West Oahu location makes it accessible to Honolulu and all its amenities, yet Ewa is also located next to Kapolei, making it a part of Oahu’s Second City. Without traffic, the trip to downtown Honolulu from Ewa might take a little over 30 minutes; however, traffic on Fort Weaver Road and the H-1 Freeway can double that time.

Ewa is 14 miles (about 25 minutes) to Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, 15 miles (25 minutes) to Camp Smith, and 15 miles (30 minutes) to Schofield Barracks and Wheeler Army Air Field, making it an option for military families as well.

  • How far is Ewa from Waikiki? With minimal traffic, it takes 35 minutes to go to Waikiki and downtown Honolulu.
  • TheBUS, Honolulu City & County’s public bus service, serves Ewa Beach with routes 41, 42, and 44.
  • The Honolulu Rail Transit has a planned stop in East Kapolei, right on the border of Ewa, making a commute the Honolulu International Airport even easier in the near future.

What's the history of Ewa?

Ewa has a rich history, which includes Hawaiian legends, businessmen and plantations. Ewa has two names: ‘Ewa with the ‘okina and Ewa without the ‘okina. ‘Ewa with the ‘okina means unequal or crooked in Hawaiian. Ewa without the ‘okina means wandering or strayed. The Hawaiian legend for the area of Ewa starts with two ancient Hawaiian gods, Kāne and Kanaloa. When they discovered the Ewa plains, they liked the large flat area, so they threw a stone to mark a boundary. When they went searching for the stone, they could not find it. Then the land became known as Ewa, or the stone that strayed. In other versions, the area was named ʻEwa because the stone was thrown crookedly. Hawaiian settlements in Ewa date back to 12th century A.D., as confirmed by artifacts found in the Native Hawaiian fishponds found in the area.

Later, businessmen and plantation owners transformed the land of Ewa. In 1877, Irish businessman James Campbell bought 40,000 acres of land in the Ewa plains, and in 1880, B.F. Dillingham leased a portion of the land to launch Ewa Plantation. The Ewa sugar plantation took off. Thirty miles of train track were soon constructed, connecting Ewa to the Oahu Railway, which transported sugar, molasses, livestock and people to the Ewa Plain. People from Korea, Japan, and the Philippines soon joined Hawaiians to work on the sugar plantation. They moved into newly built plantation villages.

By the 1980s, the sugar industry started to close down in Hawaii, changing Ewa into a quiet beach town with a plantation-era past. Now with the planned construction of thousands of residential units over the next couple of decades and the construction of the Honolulu Rail, Ewa is a bustling residential neighborhood.

Ewa beaches are enjoyable any time of the year; however, optimal swimming months in Ewa are from April through December, when temperatures range from 77 degrees to 84 degrees Fahrenheit, with little rain.

Ewa Neighborhoods

Ewa mapThe following breakdown of Ewa neighborhoods was compiled by Locations agents who live and work in the area.

1. Golf Villas at Lokahi Greens (2010, DR Horton). Homes have split A/C and steel frame construction. Surrounded by Ewa Villages Golf Course, there are underground utilities. The ingress/egress is congested due to one way in and one way out only, and the need to travel through older neighborhoods. Homes are the same models as Mehana, which is also a DR Horton project. Community is not in a flight path. Due to proximity to the golf course, maintenance of the course (including pesticides) and player interactions are present. Parking limited in the neighborhood. Some lots have golf course frontage and views, which make them premium lots in the neighborhood. Conveniently located near the golf course clubhouse.

2. Considered "Original Ewa,​" these lots are wider and squarer. There is more space between neighbors than other Ewa neighborhoods.
