After two nights at Disney Aulani we spent our remaining 7 nights at Ko 'Olina Beach Villa's just down the road on the same stretch of beach - for 1/3 the cost per night! What a great spot to relax and enjoy the beautiful pools, hot tubs, koi pond, large deck, tiki bar, gym & quieter beach after the craziness of Aulani. The condo was the perfect home base for all our adventures on Oahu. Damian was really helpful with all logistics and planning and had a fantastic host at the Villa to make us feel welcome. Highly recommend to anyone with kids/family joining them.
Before making our reservation I was overwhelmed and nervous. I had spent hours researching places for my family to stay in Hawaii and most did not match my requirements until I found this one. It seemed perfect, but was it too good to be true? After spending a week in this condo I can assure you it was even better than I ever expected!
This condo is perfect for those who will be traveling as a group and need space for friends and/or family. If you are traveling with kids, teenagers or other adults, this place has 3 spacious bedrooms for privacy and a huge common area and balcony for everyone to hang out. The best part is the condo has everything you could possibly need. It is a fully equipped home with everything you need to live comfortably and cook your own meals. And you can pack less clothes than you need because there is a full sized washer and dryer for your use.
And the resort itself is magnificent. A quiet pool and hot tub for relaxing or swimming laps, a huge "fun" pool with hot tubs for family fun, splashing and games and a beautiful bar located just off the beach for enjoying cocktails while enjoying the sun set over the water in front of you. And of course, the beach itself. A secluded lagoon protected from the big waves where you can enjoy the beach and ocean without the crowds or really high surf. If working out is your thing then the fitness center is the real deal. High end machines, free weights and sauna and steam rooms. This isn't your typical token tread mills in a hotel, this is a full gym with everything you need for a good workout while on vacation.
And the location on the west side of the island is perfect. 30 mins from Honolulu, in a very upscale area, not heavily traveled by the public. Restaurants are close by, next to a golf course, a small retail plaza with a market and just 10 minutes from Costco, Target, Safeway and plenty of other retail.
You are secluded in a tropical paradise, but all the modern conveniences are close by, as well as plenty of sights so you can do as much or as little as you want to enjoy your vacation the way you want.
On top of this, the owners are a dream to deal with. Very helpful and responsive.
We stayed here with our two adult children and one boyfriend (5 adults) and we saved a ton of money because we had everything we needed and could cook our own meals. Eating out was a fun treat, and not a chore like when you stay at a hotel.
Do not hesitate to stay here. You won't regret it!
This villa was perfect for our 12 night visit to Oahu with four teenage granddaughters. We found the villa even nicer than we imagined from the advertisement and included photos. The villa is very nicely furnished with comfortable beds, well equipped kitchen, and is spacious. The plentiful closet space, snorkeling equipment, beach chairs, beach boards make the stay enjoyable. The grounds are first class, beautifully laid out with several fantastic swimming/wading pools, bar near the beach, grilles, gorgeous fish ponds, and plentiful pool equipment including chairs, lounges, etc. The private lagoon is well protected (though no life guard on duty) for great swimming, beautiful beach, and with many fish that we observed while snorkeling.
The location is in a very private and quiet part of Oahu, yet very close to many attractions, including shopping, grocery, restaurants, coffee shops, and many other facilities. What special facilities are not available within 5-10 minute walking distance, they are certainly plentiful in the town of Kapolei 5-10 minute drive from the villa. This private location and facility provided the privacy, comfort, and luxury, but was only a short drive to anywhere on the island. For example the most distant destination is the Polynesian Cultural Center (a must visit) is 1.25 hour drive along scenic roads and picturesque beeches of the north shore of Oahu. The drive to downtown Honolulu is 40 minutes, and the airport 30 minute drive. Four our adventure this work out better than we imagined while planning this trip.
Most definitely recommend to anyone seeking a beautiful, yet peaceful, well equipped and very nicely furnished 3 bedroom 3 bath villa. My wife especially enjoyed her quiet mornings on the spacious porch with view of the paradise and its glory. We certainly would stay at this villa when we visit Oahu in the future.
