Hoakalei: Ewa Beach's Crown Jewel

Homebuyers have been showing increased interest in Hoakalei in recent years, as the “crown jewel” of Ewa Beach has seen an uptick in home sales and median prices this year.

Hoakalei is surrounded by the private Ernie Els-designed golf course of the same name, affording many residences with sweeping views of the course.

“Homebuyers are drawn to Hoakalei for the larger, newer homes, central air-conditioning and fabulous amenities,” explains Locations Realtor-Associate® Denise Fisher, whose son is also a Hoakalei resident. Fisher adds that the community is popular with military homebuyers, too.
