My wife, our 12-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
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.
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.
We just got back from a wonderful stay at the Ko'olina Beach Villas. The villa itself was a perfect fit for our extended family. We had a big group and were able to get two different units in the same building which worked out nice. Sandeep and Louie were exceptional in their service. Louie gave us a complete tour of the property and was available for all our needs. The unit came equipped with everything we needed from all the expected kitchen facilities, to beach towels, beach chairs, sand toys, beach mats and so on. We woke up every morning and sat on the lanai, enjoying breakfast with a view. The grounds itself allowed for wonderful morning runs, fun on the beach by the lagoon, and relaxation at the pool and hot tubs. The kids loved all of it. The only downside is that there is no restaurant on site to grab a quick bite while hanging by the pool but the poolside bar (which was awesome) did have little bites like mac and cheese, hot dogs and ice cream that worked out for the kids when needed. We cooked a bunch and make lunches and brought them to the pool area to eat and also grilled one night which was really nice. The location was great to walk to restaurants in the center nearby, walk to the marina for a wonderful catamaran sail and snorkel tour, and the beautiful golf course across the street. We had a lovely stay and look forward to going back in the future.
My family enjoyed staying in the Villa during our recent stay. Everything was as pictured on the VRBO site.
The Kitchen look and feel and appliances were a big hit! The overall Villa was nicely designed, well stocked, and very comfortable.
Upon checkin, Sandeep ensured that Louie met us to find our parking space in the garage and walk us to the Villa. Once in the Villa, Louie gave an overview of the operational instructions for the appliances, blinds, and lights.
We came prepared with lanyards (with plastic card holders) and they were very beneficial since you must use the card to access the garage, gym, beach, and elevators. The lanyards ensured that we did not lose the access card during our stay.
Sandeep helped me coordinate a meeting in the Ko Olina Beach Villa’s Owners Lounge. The Owner’s Lounge was a bit windy but overall our 37 guests enjoyed the space to mingle and share a meal together.
We liked the more quiet and less crowded Ko Olina area and were glad that it was away from the hustle-bustle of Waikiki. We purchased food from the local Target and cooked most meals during the week.
The purpose of our trip was to celebrate a Vow Renewal (25th Anniversary) and graduations from high school and college. We liked the close proximity of Paradise Cove (Luau), Aquaveil Chapel (Vow Renewal), Marina (Catamaran Snorkel Tour), and Roy’s Restaurant (Top of Roy’s - Reception). Everyone appreciated that they could walk to all planned events for the week from the Villa's.
All ages would enjoy staying in the Beach Villa’s!
If we return to Hawaii in the future, we would definitely stay in this Villa again.
Perfect villa for family. We loved the open balcony and sunset every night. Over expectations !!!
Aloha! We had a fabulous time in your beautiful villa at Ko Olina. Everything was perfect! The resort was as beautiful as it was two years when we were there. My daughter and her husband had never been to Hawaii. My grandchildren, ages 3 and 6, had never flown on an airplane so this was a very exciting trip for them. We made memories that will last a lifetime!
Thank you so much for sharing your gorgeous villa with us. I left two noodles for the pool in the closet. I would love to rent your villa again two years from now so that we can take our son and his wife and two grandchildren who will be 3 and 5 then. It has been a pleasure working with you.
What a beautiful place to stay. We would have loved to stay longer.
This was the perfect spot for us and our children to enjoy their first trip to Hawaii. We loved getting up early and opening the pocket doors to let the Hawaiian breeze in. We also enjoyed eating all our meals on lanai and the view of the ocean.
The villa was clean and had everything we needed from a well stocked kitchen to sand toys and a couple of boogie boards and lot's of chairs for the beach.
This villa is in view of a quiet lagoon, which we loved. Our kids tried out snorkeling for the first time in this Lagoon and it was great place to do that without waves crashing all around them. We saw tons of unique fish around the rocks.
The pool was really a fun place for the kids to play after we did our touring for the day. Everything was well maintained.
We wanted this trip to fill us with wonderful memories to last a life time. We were not disappointed. Thank you for sharing your villa with us!
The condo and Ko Olina are terrific. Looks just like the pictures. We were there with our daughters and their partners and our grandson. It was perfect for everyone. There's a lap pool as well as the 'lagoon' pool and well designed kiddie pool, each with hot tubs. The beach is soft white sand with mild (if any) waves. Good waves at other beaches on the island! Some restaurants in the area, a good kitchen for cooking in the condo and barbeques by the pool.
Golf: Ted Robinson designed the challenging Ko Olina Golf Course which is on site. The course is a Championship 18-hole course with stunning back drops.
