Tastefully furnished and decorated home 3 Bedrooms, 1 bath cottage on beachfront lot, directly in back of a beachfront house which is also on vacation rental. Guests of the Blue Moon use 24 hour public access to the beach, 3 houses away (no access to beach through beachfront house). 1 minute walk to beach access. Sleeps 6 (including adults, children and infants).
From our beach are distant views of Honolulu/ Waikiki/Diamond Head. In the evening via the public beach access, you can view both the lights of the city and the stars in the sky with equal brightness. Located in the village of Ewa Beach, this 3 BR, 1 BA house is called The Blue Moon. Two bedrooms have a Queen beach in each and the third bedroom has 2 Twin beds. This charming house has vintage Hawaiian architecture of the early 1940s with high ceilings. The surrounding area has the feel of Old Hawaii and appears to have stood still in time. We are in an older family neighborhood, and we are respectful of our neighbors. Tall coconut trees sway in the breeze, as you stroll along the beach. Local fisherman cast off the shoreline and spear fish in the reef. A rare and endangered monk seal named Irma has been frequenting our beach! She is sleek and beautiful and has been delighting our guests (must keep distance by law). Turtles can sometimes be seen. Whales have been sighted in the distance in front of our house in the winter months.
If you have a larger group, the Ewa Moon and Hula Moon Vacation rentals VRBO #3830 can also be rented in addition. Together the 3 units can accommodate up to 18 max total (including adults, children and infants). Thus the entire property can be rented by one group for a total of 9 bedrooms and 5 baths.
Free highspeed WiFi internet and Cable TV. Free unlimited long distance phone to the US/Canada/Neighbor Islands. Free uncovered parking for one car on site.
Just 5 minutes away is Starbucks Coffee; 2 minutes away is a new Safeway; Foodland grocery is 3 minutes away. Closer grocery shopping at Longs Drugs is less than a minute away. In our town, we have several small restaurants with ethnic variety, as well as the usual Fast Food places. 15 minutes away is the popular Waikele Outlet Shopping Center, frequented by tourists from all over the world.
The best beginning surfing on Oahu is found here in Ewa Beach. You are three to five minutes from six golf courses, including the Hawaii Prince Golf Course! State of the art Water Park with flo rider is 7 miles away. The Kapolei 12 Plex Theatre is 6 miles away. This getaway is ideal if you want to avoid mega resorts and tourist ridden areas.

In 1993 we purchased our dream property, two houses on a sandy beach lot in Ewa (say 'Evah'). For the last ten years we have been doing vacation rental on the beachfront home, but on Thanksgiving 2012, and Black Friday, we made the decision to furnish this home for a vacation rental.
Dolly Langen purchased this cottage in 1993
Clean and comfortable, close to grocery store, etc. and six adults coped with one bathroom. It suited our purpose as a base for exploring Oahu and the price was right. For travellers looking to stay put, the beach within walking distance is very narrow (5 feet maybe) with other properties overlooking it. We were not comfortable using it for a "beach day." We discovered a number of beaches within driving distance. The very small patio at the cottage is fine for morning coffee but not much else. The outdoor grill is one that is used for camping, not full size, and there are no bikes. Being from rural Canada, we were a bit surprised at how close it was to the neighbours ' and how we could hear and watch their TV. We encourage travellers to view the rental on Google Street view to have a better understanding of the older neighbourhood. The sister rental property would be a preferred spot.
5 of us come from Beijing, China to spend our Spring Festival vacation in Hawaii, we are lucky to found Dolly's vintage. we had so wonderful staying here, close to post office, Safeway......everything! Dolly is patient and helpful! Since this is my first experience renting a vacation rental. we don't want to leave....thank you and welcome to Beijing, welcome to China.
Loved having a house to cook and visit with our kids over the Christmas/ New Year holiday. Our son is stationed in Okinawa and Hawaii was half way to vacation for all of us. He loved the fact we could cook and eat home cooked meals. Very relaxing. Great weather in this area during December in the Ewa Beach area. Other areas may be raining but we had sun shine. Dolly and David very responsive to questions.
The home is comfortable, spacious, and has all the required supplies. Dolly and Dave were very responsive and accommodating...they are a pleasure to deal with. Appreciated the availability of beach chairs and boogie boards. Given the alternative hotel prices, this home is a good place if you don't need the hotel amenities.
During the summer months you need to keep open windows because there is no A/C and the neighborhood is a little noisy.
We wanted a "real Hawaii" experience away from the hotels, and Blue Moon was it exactly. Clean, comfortable, and the owners were easy to work with. David stopped by, and he fixed a little thing right on the spot that could have waited.
My friends and I travel to Oahu once each year for work. We typically rent a house as it makes the travel experience feel just a little more like home. This was our first experience renting from Dolly and Dave and they were an absolute pleasure to deal with. Communication from Dolly was extremely quick and responsive and she always answered all of my questions promptly.
The property was quite spacious and had everything we needed, including a washer and dryer (which is an unexpected luxury for us as we are on the road for several weeks at a time.) The evenings were very quiet with very little noise from the neighborhood so we were able to get some much needed rest after long days at work. We only had 2 issues during our stay. The first was parking. There is a second rental property located behind this one and it shares a driveway with Blue Moon. There are dedicated parking spots for each property but the first couple of days we were there the people renting the other location were parking in our spot. This issue worked its self out eventually so it ended up not being a big deal. The other issue was the lack of air conditioning in the house. Although it was pleasant outside, for some reason the house always felt very warm inside. We had several fans running most of the time we were there, and this helped considerably, but the nights were still a bit on the warm side. I understand AC is not something you find in a lot of properties in Hawaii, but perhaps a window unit or 2 might make a world of difference here.
All in all I would not hesitate to rent this house or work with Dolly again if/when our future travel plans take us back to the islands.
