About Paul Shaffer

After traveling the world while working and living abroad for many years, we have found no place on Earth that can match the combination of the year round perfect weather and Aloha spirit of Hawaii. We have finished our search and purchased our retirement home in Ko Olina. As we have children in university, our retirement is still a few years in the future. So we decided to open this Beach Villa to others seeking a wonderful vacation experience. Sharing the Beach Villa with others also helps us cover the high cost of property taxes and home owners dues that are required to maintain the many amenities this property offers as a first class resort. We welcome you to experience the spirit of Aloha and welcome you to the Beach Villas at Ko Olina.

Who knows? You may decide you enjoy the experience so much that someday we may be neighbors.

Paul Shaffer purchased this villa in 2010

Why Paul Shaffer chose Ko Olina

Hawaii is a magical place. A place and a spirit that words can not describe. One must experience this feeling, called Aloha, to understand. Most people say they just 'feel' better, healthier, and more alive here in Paradise.

After vacationing in Waikiki many times, our family found the uncrowded beaches and quiet sanctuary of Ko Olina more of a relaxing family style vacation to soak up the true Aloha and get away from the crowds and commercialism of Waikiki. While the other Hawaiian islands all have their unique charms and attractions, Ko Olina with it's uncrowded beaches, extra sunshine, yet close proximity to all that Oahu has to offer made it the best choice for us.

What makes this villa unique

While all of the Beach Villas at Ko Olina are professionally constructed with the finest materials and well appointed with lavish finishes, the views and floor plan layouts in each unit DO vary widely. Also, this villa is in the Beach Tower, which is the building closest to the ocean. The Beach Tower is directly on the beach, so offers a wider direct ocean view. You are SO close to the beach that you can hear the soothing surf in the quiet evenings.

In this penthouse unit, you can leave the disappearing pocket doors open, creating an expansive indoor - outdoor living area and still enjoy your private comfort and spectacular views. Additionally, as a penthouse unit, you enjoy two garage parking stalls, one of which is directly across from the elevators.

Another benefit of this particular 'Blue Ginger' floor plan is the two bedrooms and baths are separated by the great room, which offer even more privacy for two couples or a family sharing the villa. If you desire a truly relaxing vacation experience, that will leave you feeling well rested after you return home, this is the perfect choice.

Absolutely the best!

  • 5 of 5

Paul's unit on the 10th floor of the Ko Olina Beach Villas was absolutely amazing.

The pictures on the website were true to the core and the open front living area extending out to the patio gave you the feel of a huge home. We saw whales blowing and breaching every single day of our visit and the location was so nice and quiet without the crowds of Waikiki. Would recommend it to everyone and we travel a lot.

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

We have previously stayed on Oahu near Waikiki and in a private home on the east side. Beach Villa at Ko Olina is our new favorite as it is more relaxing than the city. Tourist attractions are an easy drive in most cases (avoid morning rush hour to Honolulu) and you get to return to a more pleasant location at Ko Olina. Condo was pristine and comfortable. 10th floor on sunset side of building was great. Pools were not crowded and well furnished with lounges, tables and grills (if you wish). The lagoon was wonderful! Beach chairs etc. provided in the condo was great. Easy walk to very nice restaurants and short 5 minute car trip to Kapolei for provisions (Costco, Safeway). Owner and local property manager were exceptional. This is our "go to" place on Oahu!

Peaceful contrast to Waikiki

  • 5 of 5

After staying in Waikiki for a few days, the Beach Villas was a welcome sanctuary from the crowds from the busy Waikiki area and all that comes with that. The Villa and actual views were even better than the VRBO photos.

Owner is helpful and easy to deal with, being very responsive to our inquiry and questions. Deposit refund was prompt as promised.

Very quiet and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

I was looking for a quiet, relaxing vacation and found it here. The villa was really nice. Everything was clean and well maintained. The view was mesmerizing. I loved sitting out on the veranda with the ocean breeze. Being on the north side of the building was perfect, because we were always in the shade. Plus we had a great view of both the mountains and the ocean. I also enjoyed the lagoon. There was good snorkeling, small crowds, and there was lots of room in the grass to throw the football. We saw whales pretty much every day. I would definitely come back here.

Owner's Response: Aloha JW, Thanks for taking your time for the nice review. Watching the whales is memorizing and I always look forward to their return every season. Pleased to hear you had a quiet and relaxing vacation. Mahalo, P.

Perfect setting

  • 5 of 5

The condo is amazing. The views are spectacular. What we loved about the place was how quite it was. We had the lap pool to ourselves most mornings. You are steps away from the beach and a walking distance from some very nice restaurants. I highly recommend this location.

A beautiful and quiet vacation

  • 5 of 5

This condo was a pleasant change of pace from the Honolulu and Waikiki hustle and bustle. Its quiet and no crowds. It was our best visit to Oahu ever. Everything was very well maintained and clean. We had made our reservations about 10 months before our actual arrival and during those months leading up to our stay, some plans had changed, and the owner and property management was very considerate and helped every way they could to make the changes to our reservations to accommodate us. I doubt we will make it back to Oahu again, but if we do go, we know who to call for a place to stay.

Owner's Response: Aloha P. Thanks so much for your review, I share your appreciation for quiet and uncrowded. I really do hope you get another opportunity to come back for another visit. Getting to know guest who return is the best part of all of this. Mahalo P.
