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 Oahu

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.

  • 5 of 5

This condo is a wonderful, luxurious home base in Oahu. Paul clearly delivers everything that is described about the property. My family of 5 were very comfortable here. We loved sitting out on the lanai to watch the ocean and sunsets. This property is very quiet and it's so easy to grab a spot on the beach of Honu Lagoon or by the pools. This was our second time at the Beach Villas, but this time we got the Beach Tower. This tower is so much nicer.

While we're at Paul's condo, we had friends staying at the nearby Aulani. While the Beach Villas may not have a lazy river or water slides, you can definitely relax here. The Aulani is beautiful, but so busy and crowded. If you're coming to Hawaii, don't you want to relax? My family and I loved our stay here and wouldn't hesitate coming back to Paul's condo.

Paul is very responsive and the onsite property managers are very helpful. Paul returned our deposit just a couple of days after we left.

Owner's Response: Aloha Kathy, thank you for the nice review. We love Aulani, and always visit a restaurant or shop there when we are staying at the BeachVillas. However, My favorite sunset view is looking over the Honu lagoon from our own beach bar at the villas. The sunsets from our Lanai are also a pretty nice time, and place to relax. Can't wait to get back.

The villa was everything described. Beautiful unit on a beautiful property. We were there for 6 nights (actually, my husband was there for only 5 due to airline problems) and would have loved to stay longer. Ko Olina Resort has several restaurants, a marina, a golf course, quite coves great for just cooling down, and ample shopping within a 10 minute drive. The villa property also had two pools and a poolside bar. Far enough away from the chaos of the city, but close enough to H1 to get you in and out easily (as easily as Oahu traffic allows). Avoid rush hours (yes, Oahu has a heck of a rush hour on both ends of the day) if you can. Vicky was there waiting for us when we arrived - even though we (my sons and I) arrives nearly 10 hours later than expected. We kept her informed along the way of our delays and she was very accommodating. Gave us a tour of the unit and she and her son explained everything about the unit. We quickly felt at home. Was especially nice that they provided dishwashing and laundry detergent, as well as trash bags and toilet paper. While these are little touches, it is also nice added convenience.

We visited Pearl Harbor, Kuhola ranch (sp?), and Diamond Head. Would recommend all three. The ranch is something I would not have initially chosen. But, one of our sons found a brochure in the lobby so we looked it up and the YELP reviews were very good. So, we decided to give it a shot. Absolutely breathtaking landscape. Lots of different activities at the ranch. Adaptable to all age groups. And, of course, Pearl Harbor should be on everyone list. Diamond Head was also great. But, would not recommend it for small children or anyone not pretty physically fit. It's a pretty steep hike and hilly - but well worth it if you make it to the top. Pretty cool!

Fantastic property, great owner, sunny Hawaii - Can't go wrong!

  • 5 of 5

Paul's Beach Villa is everything and more than what you can see and read online. It was immaculately clean had excellent beds, beautiful kitchen and the lanai was the perfect place to spend any downtime. The pools and amenities at Beach Villas were really nice and not over crowded at all. Access to the public cove was convenient and was great for swimming and snorkeling. If you are visiting Hawaii and don't want the tourist trap of Honolulu, you should definitely try this out. Ko Olina is a resort area in which Beach Villas was built and offers excellent amenities as well. Monkeypod Grill, Roys, and Only Tacos were our favorites. All in walking distance.

We will come back to Breach Villas if we return to Hawaii. i highly recommend this property.

Owner's Response: Aloha Michael J, Mahalo for the thoughtful review. We appreciate your time to write the review, and we value your feedback. We also love the monkey pod, Roy's, and only tacos, especially as all are a 5-10 minute stroll from the beach villas. Disney Aulani also has nice restaurants, and we can't wait to get back and try out the just opened 4 seasons restaurants as well. The KoOlina resort has a growing good vibe, yet still uncrowned beaches. Hope you can visit us again. Aloha, Paul

A perfect unit in a wonderful location on the island

  • 5 of 5

The unit is well equipped and beautiful! My daughter came direct to O'ahu from her university and was thrilled to have her own room and a sunken tub! We ate breakfast on the lanai every morning. The view is magnificent!

As a local girl from the leeward side I never spent much time in Kapolei. It has grocery stores, restaurants and even Baskin Robins where we could get our very favorite Cappuccino Blasts! :-) Ko Olina is beautiful! The lagoons are calm and perfect for families with young children. The pools are lovely and there is even a quiet lap pool . The Ko Olina Villas are a sharp contrast to the noisy Disneyland Hotel, next door. We can't wait to go back!

Paul Shaffer was always expeditious in his response time. Vicky and her son, who gave us the keys and initial tour of the condo, were terrific. Vicky even came back late in the evening on the day of arrival, to help me figure out how to work the remotes for the televisions. Thank you Paul and Vicky!
