About Paul Shaffer
After traveling the world while working and living abroad for many years, we have found no place on Earth that can compare with the year round perfect weather and Aloha spirit of Hawaii. We have completed our search and purchased our retirement home in Ko Olina. Our retirement is still a few years in the future. So we decided to open this Beach Villa to others seeking a wonderful place to create some lifetime vacation memories and experiences. We welcome you to experience the spirit of Aloha and welcome you to the Beach Villas at Ko Olina, and the entire Ko Olina resort. 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 Kapolei
When you first enter this villa, the ocean and beach views will take your breath away, and you will know you 'got it right' on this important vacation choice. 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 constructed with the finest materials and well appointed with lavish finishes, the views and floor plan layouts in each unit DO vary widely. This villa is in the Beach Tower, the building closest to the ocean. The Beach Tower is directly on the beach, so offers a wider 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. The 'Blue Ginger' floor plan is ideal for 2 couples sharing the villa for maximum privacy, with the two bedrooms and baths on each side of the great room. If you desire a truly relaxing vacation experience, that will leave you feeling well rested after you return home, this is the perfect choice.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Just got back from spending 7 nights at this beautiful property. Went to the Ko’Olina area for my son’s wedding and Paul’s unit was in the perfect location.. the unit is gorgeous and has beautiful views of the cove and mountains. Check-in was very easy and everyone working at the Beach Villas were super friendly. I would highly recommend renting this unit.
Paul's Villa at Ko'Olina is incredible! This was our 2nd time to Hawaii and the 2nd time our family has stayed here. We have loved it each time and will not stay anywhere else when we come back again!
Paul has always been great to work with when booking our vacations, and quite frankly, the reservation and check-in/out processes could not be simpler.
The condo is exactly as it is portrayed in the pictures, and so much more; perfect location, beautiful views, clean and spacious accommodations... this is paradise at its finest.
The lagoon on the beach is perfect for swimmers of all ages/levels of expertise. The condo has a few sets of snorkel gear, a couple of boogey boards, beach chairs, and swimming noodles.
The location is perfect; close to everything, but far enough away from the hustle and bustle of Honolulu that you will be guaranteed to have a relaxing vacation. There are plenty of great restaurants and shops within walking distance of the condo, and everything you could want is available in the condo if you decide to cook or grill by the pool.
We couldn't have been happier with our stay. We will definitely be back!
Mahalo for coming back to visit us again. We love returning guest who enjoy their Beach Villa vacation. Happy to hear you had a great vacation at the Beach Villas at Ko Olina, and Mahalo for taking the time to write such a nice review.
Excellent first time on Oahu
The property was exactly as pictured. Everything was very clean and set up well for us. We really enjoyed staying here and will definitely be visiting this property again! The view is absolutely amazing.
Aloha S. Thank you so much for taking the time to write your review, We appreciate reviews more than you know. Happy to hear you enjoyed the view and the Beach Villas. Mahalo Nui Loa, Paul
I recently stayed here with my family (2 adults and 4 children - ages 17, 15, 10, 10).
Believe everything you read in the reviews and see in the pictures. This is a beautiful high end condo right next to the beach. The views were amazing and my family had an amazing time. We loved sitting out on the lanai for breakfast or watching the sunset. We even saw the fireworks from Aulani one evening from the lanai...we probably had a better view than most people staying there.
The check-in / check-out process was simple. There were beach chairs, boogie boards, snorkels and masks, so we didn't have to rent anything.
The beach / cove is amazing. Great for swimming and building sand castles. The waves are very small, so don't expect to be catching waves on the boogie boards.
The only constructive criticism I can think of is that it would have been nice to have a beach umbrella.
I was hesitant to even leave a review as I'm afraid it won't be as affordable or available the next time we want to stay here.
I highly recommend and think you won't be disappointed.
Aloha Paul, happy to hear you had a grand vacation at the Beach Villas. Mahalo for taking the time to write such a nice review. Hope you can visit us again. Remember, returning guest enjoy 10% off any advertised rate we have, which can be a great value during our discounted Spring and Fall value seasons.
We had an amazing time at Paul’s Beach Villa condo. Everything was perfect, check-in was smooth and attentive, the condo was spotless and well-equipped and in a great location. We walked to the marina for a day trip on a boat and to the four seasons for a fancy dinner. My girls loved the beach and pool and we cooked most meals in the kitchen. Thank you Paul!
Happy to hear you had an amazing time. We love the beach walk and visiting the Marina and all the resorts and restaurants. I can't believe how much KoOlina resort has grown, yet it still feels uncrowded, especially in our Honu lagoon. Hope you can visit again. Mahalo Nui Loa, paul
We stayed in this beautiful condo for 6 nights. The reason I picked this unit was because of the view and the layout but what sold me was Paul (the owner). He was so great and easy to deal with and always answered any and all of my questions. His unit is spacious, clean & has all the amenities you need to make your stay very enjoyable in Ko Olina. Mahalo Paul, we hope to be back one day!
Mahalo for the great review. I am happy to hear you all had a Grand vacation at the Beach Villas. Hope you can visit us again.
