A true home away from home vacation and more
Submitted: May 3, 2011

I agree with all the reviews above.
Diane is who we stayed in touch with- truly amazing.
If you decided to come to Honolulu, Hawaii stay at Diane's fully equipped condo - I may sound like a salesman for them but believe me I am not.
It is only 15-20 minutes from the airport - rent a car and explore North Shore, Pearl Harbor, different beaches & restaurants.
I am a world traveler and we came to Waikiki 6 years ago and I vowed I would never come back. Never say never: We had to come back for business and decided to make a vacation out of it - after all, internet research has come along way from 6 years ago.
We decided to try vacation rentals - a new trend emerging - and emailed Diane - well what can I say - lovely hospitality, answered all my questions - Oahu revealed is an essential guide - and had extras that we would not think of - you truly have to bring just a few clothes - there is a washer & dryer, all kitchen appliances - Diane has a fully stocked kitchen - spices, s&p, coffee and even some goodies - macadamia shortbread, extra bedding sheets, extra blankets, extra quilts, extra pillows, plenty of towels and beach towels, suntan lotion, after sun lotion, beach bag, beach toys, snorkeling gear, boogie boards adult and kids, disposable razors, rubbing alcohol, first aid kit, shampoo, lotions, soaps conditioners, toilet tissue, you name it - it was all there - seriously really impressive.
We had internet access too and the parking spot was right near the entrance and there are elevators - no worries about carrying shopping bags or suitcases.
This condo is for all age groups and the layout of the 2 bedrooms is on opposite sides - so very private with doors.
The property - Ko Olina Beach villas - is beautiful - man-made lagoons, swimming pools - for baby - adult, barbecue, nice walkways.
Very easy access to Campbell Industrial (8 minutes) - a fairly new shopping complex with Target, Subway Costco, petrol stations and other shops - and Target has souvenirs and memorabilia you can purchase as gifts if you wish.
I hope you have a fantastic time - whether solo, with family, friends or partners.
