About Sandeep Kulkarni
My wife, our 7-year old daughter and I live in Chicago. So warm weather is always on our minds. Plus we have always had an emotional attachment to the Hawaiian islands and Polynesia -- my wife lived in Honolulu and I lived in New Zealand. As you would expect, our daughter is named after a Hawaiian princess!!
Sandeep Kulkarni purchased this villa in 2008
Why Sandeep Kulkarni chose Ko Olina
We wanted a place which combined big city energy, excitement, amenities, and attractions, with calm, unspoilt, and uncrowded beaches; warm, wonderful folks as neighbors; and all the pleasures of a 7-star resort. That place is the Ko Olina Beach Villas Resort -- a 30-minute drive to Waikiki and a 40-minute drive to Kailua on H3; in a gated exclusive property on Oahu's calm and unspoilt western or Leeward shore. Our villa, aptly named 'Hale Akala 404' which in Hawaiian means 'Home of the Sun', is a luxurious 3 BA/3 BA villa designed on Feng Shui principles:
- in the Beach Tower which is the only building directly fronting the beach
- on the 4th floor of a 8 floor building,
- with unobstructed views of the ocean and the Waianae mountain ranges from a large lanai
- tasteful Asian-inspired art, and furniture which allow the ocean breezes to flow through the villa
- top-of-the-line bed and bath linens
- and a Roy Yamaguchi designed chef's kitchen
In addition, we have all the amenities that one would want in a vacation -- lap/lounge pools, jacuzzi, beach bar, top-notch fitness center, assigned underground parking, and the best resort staff you will ever meet -- from Moon Kahele who leads ukelele playing and koi feeding lessons for the keiki (kids), to Summer and her staff that lead you through lei-making sessions, to David and his staff who are there to attend to your every need.
We have been to all the Hawaiian islands and each has it own charm. We really saw all of the islands in one place -- at Ko Olina. An outer island experience with all the amenities that discerning travelers have come to expect for their ever so rare vacations.
As an old commercial said, 'We liked it so much that we bought the company'!! We invested in our villa because we loved it and everything that came with it -- material and spiritual. As our esteemed guests, we hope you feel the same.
What makes this villa unique
Anything that you want to do. If the Beach Villas don't have it, the concierge can arrange it for you, either on the Ko Olina property or indeed anywhere on Oahu or indeed in Hawai'i.
