Ko Olina is a great place to explore Oahu. West of Ko Olina, see the surfing at famous Makaha Beach, hike to undeveloped Kaena Point, a bird refuge for endangered native Hawaiian birds. Head to the famous surfing beaches along the North Shore, see endangered sea turtles & monk seals. Book a glider ride or parachute jump at Dillingham Field in Mokuleia, then watch the colorful kite and windsurfers offshore.

Continue driving the 2-lane country road to the beautiful Byodo-In Temple at the back of the Valley of the Temples in Kahaluu. Charming Kailua town & neighboring Lanikai is known for its world class kiteboarding, windsurfing, and kayaking on turquoise waters. Take scenic H3, Likelike, or Pali Hwys back to Honolulu or follow Kalanianaole Hwy along the NE coast to Sea Life Park and Makapuu Pt. Hike to the lighthouse - bring water and an umbrella to shade you on the hot walk! Waikiki has a unique aquarium, & famous but crowded beach. Ala Moana Shopping Center is 4 stories tall & two full city blocks long, the largest open air mall in the US. Visit Iolani Palace, the only royal palace in the U.S. just across from the statue of King Kamehameha, and historic Kawaiahao Church.
If history and WWII is of interest to you, visit the Arizona Memorial and Museum, and take the time to visit the USS Bowfin & USS Missouri. The outstanding Pacific Aviation Museum on Ford Island in Pearl Harbor is a must see for WWII and aviation buffs! In Waikiki, next to the Hale Koa Hotel, is the Army Museum. For Polynesian culture and artifacts, the Bernice Pauahi Bishop Museum is a must.
Other suggestions include Downtown Honolulu, with numerous art galleries, and adjacent Chinatown with it's assortment of lei and flower shops, Asian mom & pop restaurants, and inexpensive open markets. A real gem is the free Hawaii State Art Museum (http://hawaii.gov/sfca/HiSAM.html) and the Honolulu Museum of Art (http://honolulumuseum.org/342-visit)
I grew up on this island, but rarely ventured west of the Aloha Stadium near Pearl Harbor. My husband came to the island in the 70's from the cold Midwest and didn't want to ever leave. This is our second home away from home. Ko Olina reminded me of how West Maui was when Kaanapali and Kapalua were just starting up as an upscale destination. I had no idea this beautiful oasis was on the same island as our bustling capital of Honolulu. I love the huge shade trees, the best marina in the state, gorgeous natural and man-made lagoons with clean, calm waters, tennis courts, and an 18-hole professional tournament-quality golf course. It had everything we'd needed for an ideal retirement!
The Owner purchased this townhome in 2006
Upscale resort with a neighbor-island feel, yet big-city benefits of Honolulu and Oahu Island within easy driving distances. Endangered and rare Hawaiian monk seals, turtles, dolphins, and whales frequent the area. Water features at the top-rated Ko Olina Golf Course attracts native birds. Beautiful tree-lined streets are pedestrian and bike-friendly, and you never tire of the views from the 1.5 mile shoreline walking path. Disney had good reason to pick this area to build their hotel and timeshare. The Wet-N-Wild waterpark is just one freeway exit away, as are Costco, Home Depot, Safeway, Ross, Target, TJ Maxx, Kapolei Shopping Center, Foodland, Kapolei Commons, Kapolei Public Library, Walmart, hundreds of restaurants including local 24/7 favorite, Zippy's!
Best place to safely walk, ride a bike, cruise along in our 4-passenger electric golf cart, and swim in clean, calm ocean lagoons. Friendly community pool, spa, and BBQ area to meet the neighbors. Lagoons are uncrowded due to limited free public parking, about 20 stalls each at Lagoons 1-3, and 100 stalls at Lagoon 4 (Ulua). Pay parking is available at the marina for approximately $10-12/day or$4/hr. Long-term residents enjoy discounts at shops and restaurants, plus use of the tennis and workout facility.
We stayed in Jackie's VR for a family reunion last Christmas. We absolutely enjoyed the house and it feels just like home. We had 2 toddlers and a 6 year old during our trip, so a well equipped kitchen is one of our top criteria. Jackie kept the house well organized and neat and we have no problem during our stay. I agreed with Sonny's reply on your questions. But we didn't go much to the lagoons nearby though cause the water was freezing during that time. The new Disney resort is just down the block and be sure not to miss their Friday's breakfast with characters if u have kids.
I would say the stay there (Koolina Hillside Villas) is well worth the money. : )
This house is located at the perfect locations a couple of blocks from the beautiful lagoons and Resorts
the house it nice and clean and three big bedrooms it fits perfect 6 people
Jacqueline was really aloha and will call us several time to see if we need anything.
I will be sending my friends to this place. Love it.
The house was perfect for our stay. We had 4 adults and 3 kids and it was the perfect fit. With shops and restaurants with driving distance and the great time we had at the Aulani Resort, there is nothing not worth staying here for. Jackie was a great hostess meeting all our expectations and then some. We will definitely recommend this to any one looking for a place to stay while visiting the islands!!
The place was exactly as mentioned. The rooms were spacious and the place was very well stocked. Our stay was relaxing and just the break we needed from the midwest winters. Jackie (owner) greeted us upon arrival and also came back the next day with goodies for us. She was very thorough in explaining things about the house and places around Hawaii. We would definitely consider staying at this property again in the future.
We came in to town for a wedding which was at the Ko Olina resort. We had 3 adult couples and we all found this townhome was perfect for our needs. Jackie is a wonderful person to work with and she keeps this home in top shape. We found that the house had everything we needed including a computer with printer and Internet/WiFi (handy for printing directions and return flight boarding passes). The location is close to the beach and Ko Olina resorts ( short drive or long walk) We didn't use the pool but it looked as it does in the pictures. The beds were comfortable and the rest of the amenities provided us all we needed for our stay. There is a well stocked market and restaurants on the resort property or Kapole is a short 5min drive for shopping, dining and Costco. Not a big deal for us but worth mentioning, parking is limited (we had a car which we parked in the garage plus an SUV parked in the driveway. Any additional vehicles would need to use the visitor parking which is steps from the townhouse. Mahalo Jackie!
We loved staying at Jackie's townhome. It was exactly as described on the website. It had everything you could ask for and more. Jackie thought of everything that you may possibly need while on vacation. She went out of her way to make sure our stay was a good one. The rooms were very spacious and the property was tranquil. Loved the pool and being so close to the lagoons. We spent time at both. We also just loved the peacefulness of the surroundings. I would definitely recommend this property to further Hawaii visitors.
My wife, 2 1/2 year old, and my in-laws very much enjoyed our stay at the clean and well kept townhouse. The place was spacious and had all the amenities needed for fun at the beach. Jackie, the owner, was attentive and made sure our stay was relaxing. The pool was very nice, but honestly we spent more time at the lagoons which were a 15 minute walk.
I would recommend to a family or corporate traveler looking to soak in the aloha spirit in a clean and relaxing environment.
Ko Olina Resort is an upscale and gated resort about 20 miles west of Honolulu. It has clean and calm ocean lagoons, perfect for swimming and snorkeling, great for young and old! The private marina has charter fishing cruises, whale-watching, swim with the dolphin tours, and much much more. A Wet n Wild waterpark is just a few miles eastward. Much less crowded and more convenient than Waikiki to the famous North Shore. A nightly luau takes place at Paradise Cove, right near the entrance to Ko Olina. During the day, Hawaiian green sea turtles graze on seaweeds growing on the lava rocks and coral shelves protecting the lagoon. The even rarer Hawaiian monk seal will frequently snooze on the quiet and uncrowded sands of the coves and lagoons of Ko Olina. Within the resort, you'll find the ABC Country Market with deli sandwiches and salads made to order, fresh coffee, a very nice wine selection, and souvenirs and supplies of all kinds to make it a convenient one-stop shop. Try their cheeseburger and fries special! Excellent casual dining and live music is found at Monkeypods, the latest Peter Merriman restaurant and bar. Another original Hawaiian regional cuisine restaurant from chef Yamaguchi is Roy's Restaurant & Bar overlooking the 18th hole. Not to be missed! Just Tacos is a nice sit-down Mexican restaurant. For ice cream and yogurt, enjoy Two Scoops. Island Vintage Coffee is a superb place to drink your favorite brews. Hawaiian Regional cuisine chef Pete Merriman and has live Hawaiian music at the two-story Monkeypods Restaurant and Bar. Hawaiian BBQ offers local style meals, Sushi Yuzu just opened their 2nd location here in Ko Olina Center. Both the Disney hotel and Marriott Beach & Vacation club offer several dining options including Chuck's Steakhouse and Longboards Bar & Grill. See dining options at www.koolina.com/experience/dining
If deep-sea fishing is on your list of things to do, the best place to go is the Ko Olina Marina to charter a fishing boat for the day. It's way more convenient than the boats at Keehi Lagoon in town, plus you'll be dropping your fishing lines within 10 minutes of leaving the docks compared to 1.5 hours from Keehi Lagoon. Swim and snorkel with dolphins or take a sunset cruise up the Waianae coast.
