Ewa real estate is an area located on the leeward coast of the island Oahu in Hawaii. This is the southernmost area of the island. The word ewa in the Hawaiian language means stray. Legend has it that the Hawaiian gods were playing with stones and they rolled them into the area that is now known as Ewa.
Ewa is 1.4 miles of lush land that is home to approximately 14,650 people. This is the fifteenth largest community in Hawaii. It is only five feet above sea level so a quarter of the land is subdued or composed by the Pacific Ocean. It is located 10 miles west of Honolulu.
The Ewa Plain is divided up into eight main areas: Ewa Beach, Ewa-Gentry, Kapolei, Ka Olina, Leeward Estates, Ocean Pointe, Westloch Estates, and Westloch Fairway. Most of these areas are home to single-family homes, but there are several condominiums and townhouses that are for lease. Housing costs here are some of the highest in the nation, but they do not compare with some of the highest housing areas in Hawaii.

Most occupations in Ewa are a combination of blue and white collar. Many of the jobs are service related. Many sales and office related jobs are also available in the area. Almost five percent of the people who live in Ewa are employed with local military. In fact Ewa is right next to the Pearl Harbor base. The government is also a major employer in this area.
The area is mostly a tourist destination so most attractions have been designed for them, but there are many activities for residents to do as well. Ewa Beach Park is the most common reason people will move here. The Ewa shopping center is an additional bonus, along with the community park, and being in close approximation to the Honolulu Zoo.
Much of Ewa is nautical meaning that it is connected to some form of water whether that is the ocean, streams, valleys, or rivers. This plays a lot into how most people spend their time here. Water front activities or even taking in the local scenery is a common way to spend free time.
This is a great neighborhood for raising a family. There are good quality public schools, low-crime rate, and most of the people that live here are single family homes. Many of these families have children that are of school age. In all of Hawaii, Ewa sits in the top 12.7 percent of family-friendly residential areas.
This is also a wealthy area to live in. It is ranked in the top 15 percent of highest incomes in the United States. The childhood poverty rate is lower than in 64.6 percent of communities in America.
The commute rate for individuals is typically 15 to 30 minutes. This is more time spent driving to work than in many areas in Hawaii, but in comparison with the rest of the United States it is a very small amount of time.
