Two secure garage parking stalls are included with our compliments, the main parking stall is just steps from the elevator, The second garage parking stall is about 50 feet away from the elevators with convenient access. As the new Disney Aulani Resort is now open and only a 5 minute walk down the beach walk, you can enjoy all the restaurants there, without paying $35 daily for parking. In the other direction, 5 minutes along the Beach Walk is the famous Chucks Steak house. Also, this Villa is a short, 8 minute drive to Target, Costco, Safeway, and all the restaurants and shopping that Kapolei offers.

There are restaurants, a boutique grocery store, and the outstanding Roy's restaurant in easy walking distance from the Beach Villas. Master Chef Roy Yamaguchi, who was born in Tokyo, but now lives in Hawaii, specializes in Hawaiian fusion cuisine. His chain of Roy's Hawaiian fusion restaurants focuses on fresh seafood and uses a blend of fresh local ingredients combined with Asian spices and European sauces. Roy’s also features hand-cut meats, sushi, fresh shellfish and signature desserts and cocktails, including the Classic Hawaiian Martini.

Some of our favorites is the Monkey Pod across the street from Disney Aulani in Ko Olina station, that offers a more casual fare, and Longboards at the Marriott beach club.


Oahu 'The Gathering Place'

All of the attractions, the Arizona memorial in Pearl Harbor, and the Polynesian cultural center on the north shore of the Oahu are within a reasonable and scenic drive, and the best part of the day may be returning to your spacious, quiet, and peaceful beach villa resort.

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.

We know staying at the Beach Villas is a major vacation investment, and we want it to be your best vacation ever. The Ko Olina resort is growing and already offers many activities, shops, and restaurants in easy walking distance. Our location on the west coast of Oahu is a great base from which to explore the entire island, but please ask beach villa staff for best times and routes to avoid the Honolulu-Waikiki rush hour traffic.

A family vacation we will remember always

  • 5 of 5

Paul's Ko Olina beach home is perfection. My husband and I enjoyed a few nights alone before our daughter and her boyfriend joined us. You couldn't ask for a more well-stocked home. Everything you could possibly need in terms of kitchenware, linens, children's furniture were readily available. As a foodie and chef, I greatly appreciated the gourmet kitchen and appliances. A short stroll to the beach and several restaurants makes the location just fabulous. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home, Paul!

Great stay in Hawaii

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful week in Hawaii. Our apartment was perfect and location also was a good choice. The beach was fantastic and a delight to be able to walk around in the water without getting knocked over. At our age...less is more and we enjoyed the calm lagoon waters! My only request would be having some type of restaurant or Grille onsite. We will definitely recommend to friends! Thanks for everything being just right!

Spectacular accommodations and view!

  • 5 of 5

Absolute perfect location on Oahu, easy access to beach, restaurants and shops. The accommodations are modern and spotless. Nice to have a feeling of home with full kitchen and laundry.

Perfect for our entire family.

The pools were a daily treat with a wonderful cabana bar and nightly music to watch the sun set. Beaches were perfect and provided a nice beach walkway for jogging or walking.

We were incredibly impressed with the surroundings and found our visit both fun and relaxing.

We will definitely return to this exact suite.
