This is Four Times the size of the average hotel room, and far more luxurious. Intelligent vacation planners will enjoy all of this well-appointed space for less than the price of one ocean view room at the Waikiki chain hotels.

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

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 professionally constructed with the finest materials and well appointed with lavish finishes, the views and floor plan layouts in each unit DO vary widely. Also, this villa is in the Beach Tower, which is the building closest to the ocean. The Beach Tower is directly on the beach, so offers a wider direct 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. Additionally, as a penthouse unit, you enjoy two garage parking stalls, one of which is directly across from the elevators.

Another benefit of this particular 'Blue Ginger' floor plan is the two bedrooms and baths are separated by the great room, which offer even more privacy for two couples or a family sharing the villa. If you desire a truly relaxing vacation experience, that will leave you feeling well rested after you return home, this is the perfect choice.

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!

Wonderful Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Beach Villa November 27, 2015 - December 4, 2015. It was the perfect place for our family. Practically everything needed was provided, the view was spectacular, and the place was really quiet. We brought our 16 month old with us, which makes for a stressful experience, but we felt right at home in the villa! The lagoon was amazing for little ones. We visited other places around the island and felt really glad we chose to stay at Ko Olina. If we come back to Oahu, there is no other place we would rather stay.

Superbe Villa

  • 5 of 5

After a long long trip it was a relief to settle down in this wonderful Villa. It was clean, fully equipped, spacious, comfortable, quiet, relaxing and ... I am running out of adjectives.

Mr. Shaffer was kind enough to grant my daughter and early access to my daughter who was arriving much earlier than my wife and I. (Thanks again Paul!).

I recommend it without hesitation.

What a View

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 had a wonderful experience during our week at Ko Olina. Paul was quick to respond to emails and finalize plans. The unit itself has a truly spectacular view. Just sitting on the lanai staring off at the ocean or the mountains was enough to occupy a few hours each day. My young kids had a great time at the lagoons. The unit came well stocked with utensils and kitchen essentials, as well as boogie boards, fins and towels. We can't wait to go back. We've stayed in 2 other units at the Beach Villas, and this one was by far the best.

Owner's Response: Aloha DN, Mahalo for such a nice review ! Yes, we can spend hours enjoying the views and trade winds on the Lanai, in mindful conversation, or just reading a good book. Hope you will have a chance to come back for another visit ! Mahalo, Paul
