2 Bedroom, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 4 (+ small child/baby)

IMPORTANT - if you want a 'golf cart' for your stay, please note that Ko Olina is voting in June on an amendment to RESTRICT golf carts throughout the Ko Olina Resort. What does this mean for you? If you're booking a property after March 2017 and it says it has a "golf cart" you may be stuck with a cart you're not allowed to drive!!! All of our Lanihonua Villas come with your own personal Street Legal HI State licensed "Neighborhood Electric Vehicles" that will continue to be allowed throughout the Ko Olina Resort. Ask other property owners if their carts are "Street Legal" and licensed - it not, don't risk it!

Lanihonua means "Heaven on Earth" and guests agree!

If this is booked for your dates - ask about our brand new 3BR - homeaway #3862899

Ko Olina Villa with street legal golf cart to zip you around the fabulous Ko Olina Resort & Marina. Steps to the Ko Olina Lagoons - Beach, Ko Olina Golf Course, Beach, Disney Aulani, Marriott Beach Club.

Gorgeous furniture, appliances, decor, beach gear, golf cart - everything brand new and waiting for you to enjoy on your Hawaiian vacation.

The unit is 'stocked' with everything you need - from a crib & stroller for your little ones to boogie boards, snorkel gear, beach toys and of course the brand new golf cart for the 'big kids'. Cal King bed with fantastic memory foam mattress in the master and twin beds in the 2nd bedroom. You won't want to leave, but if you do, Costco, Safeway, Target are just a few miles up the road. Pearl Harbor & Waikiki are a short 30 minute drive and the North Shore surfing spots are about an hour. Ko Olina has the best beach on Oahu, golf, a marina and fabulous restaurants.

Please note, although the MAX occupancy is 6, the villa is best suited for family of 4 or 5. Two couples also work well if one doesn't mind twin beds. 6 people are considered (and comfortable) only if one is a baby or young child (that can use the provided crib or small child size aero-bed). If you need a bigger unit, check out our all new 3br/3ba that sleeps 8 (including a baby/toddler) homeaway #3862899

Hawaii Tax ID#: W11413228-01

HOA rules (for ALL residential condos in Ko Olina, not just ours!) restrict rentals to 1x/30 days but you don't have to stay the entire month - Call us at 415-484-8378 or use the "send a message" or "contact owner" button to inquire about your shorter stays (but be aware that shorter stays are more per night when compared to monthly stays :-)! Usually if you're staying more than 14 days it makes MUCH more sense to rent from us than a hotel or one of the beach villas.

About California Hawaii Properties

Our family had been visiting Ko Olina for 6 years and fell in love with it from our very first trip. We have 2 children and have seen them go from infants to surfers during our trips to Ko Olina! We look forward to welcoming guests and hope that they return year after year to enjoy the wonderful Ko Olina family lifestyle we love!

California Hawaii Properties purchased this villa in 2011

Why California Hawaii Properties chose Oahu

We have stayed at both Marriott hotels, several other Ko Olina condos & even the new Disney Aulani, but when we found our villa knew it was 'the one'.

It felt the most like a home and a getaway at the same time. The ground floor location, attached garage and walk out lanai to the grass area was an absolute 'must' for us. We wanted to be able to leave the doors open and let the kids have some freedom to play outside. Many of the condos in Ko Olina, while beautiful have very little actual outdoor space. The Lanihonua villa has a great lanai and lots of outdoor room to 'run around', kick a ball, ride the provided bikes, scooters, etc.

We also love that after a long day at the beach or shopping, there's no need to haul groceries or beach gear from a parking garage, into a freezing elevator, down a long hallway and then ending up on a tiny lanai facing your neighbor!

What makes this villa unique

Fantastic Golf Cart/Gem - read the reviews - it's everyone's favorite and a 'must have' for truly enjoying a stress free Ko Olina vacation. Zip to the Aulani, Marriott Beach Club, Ihilani, ABC Store, Ko Olina Marina - anywhere you want to go - in just minutes with no parking hassle or cranky kids that don't want to walk when they're sandy and salty. Lug all the beach gear in the handy 'pickup truck' type back - fits 4 beach chairs, a cooler, all your sand toys - what fun!

Guestbook comments from the owner

*****There is a place in this world where I am happy all the time. That place is on Koio Drive and that place has a name, Lanihonua: Heaven on Earth. I get up in the morning in my house, listening to the exotic birds chirping and smelling the sweet scent of Hibiscus outside my window. The warm tropical air wafts in through my window, refreshing me after a deep sleep, and drawing me outside. Watching the palm trees swaying slowly in the light breeze, I marvel at the amazing vibrance and range of color. The pinks, yellows, and reds of the hibiscus flowers, the green of palm fronds, all the way down to the chocolate brown of fallen coconuts. Back inside, I get out some eggs, bacon, and pancake mix to make a plethora of food for my family when they rise. This is a morning in my happy place.



We bike to the beach, Mom, Dad, little brother, and I with the trailer and supplies. Tommy Bahama folding beach chairs at the ready, we score a pilapa to relax under for the day. Burying my feet into the soft sand, I whip out my Kindle and start reading, my favorite pastime. My little brother runs down the beach and immediately falls face-first into the crystal clear warm turquoise water, laughing all the way. Having cooled off, he sets to work on building the best sandcastle this beach has ever seen. I read for a while, futilely pretending to not be interested in the mirror flat lagoon protected by a barely visible breakwater. Having quickly lost that battle with myself, I follow my brother’s footsteps into the water below. We frolic and play in the water together until noon, when dad announces that it’s time for lunch. Drying off, I mount up and bike across the street to the local market for sandwiches and chips to take back to the beach; mouthwatering pulled pork for me, cheeseburgers for everyone else. Back at the beach, sandwiches are scarfed down with the addition of curly fries and finished off with an ice cream (or two). Then it’s back in the water for the rest of the afternoon. This is daytime in my happy place.



As the sun gets lower in the sky, seemingly sinking into the ocean, the cotton-candy clouds turn bright pink, orange, purple, and red, fading sunlight casting a soft glow on all of the people and structures around me. As a final farewell, the sun projects a shimmering image on the glass-like water, forever burning the image of a perfect sunset into the minds of all who are present.

Perfect place for families with young children!

  • 5 of 5

We almost always rent through VRBO/HomeAway when traveling, and this Villa has been our best experience to date. Betsy was very responsive and professional. Execelltent communication both before and during our stay. We loved taking the GEM to the lagoons for beach days, and to ice cream at night in the little shopping center, it made traveling around Ko Olina easier than taking our rental car and it's fun t drive. The Villa was very clean and the kitchen had every gadget and appliance you can think of.

For families: This is the Villa you want. It's close to the gentle lagoons, a pool for evening or low key days, multiple tvs for lazy evenings (or cartoons in the kids room while a grown-up movie is on in the living room) close to costco/Walmart, and has every single piece of baby/toddler gear you need.

We were traveling with a 4 and 1 year old, and felt so at home here. We alternated days around Ko Olina and exploring the island. On our previous trip to Oahu, we went with a budget studio on Kailua. We didn't realize how much time we would be spending inside while traveling with little littles, and it simply wasn't big enough or able to accommodate the needs of toddlers. This Villa was perfect, and I've already recommended it to several of our friends.

Owner's Response: What a lovely review :-) Thank you - it made my day! You and your family were wonderful guests and are welcome back to Lanihonua anytime! We're always truly happy to hear that families appreciated all the little family 'extras' we include. When we started traveling with our 'littles' 15 years ago we realized how poorly setup most rentals were for kids/toddlers and vowed that if we were ever lucky enough to have a place of our own we'd include the gadgets that make life with toddlers a little easier. We hope you are able to visit again someday. Mahalo & Aloha, Betsy

Fantastic very clean place

  • 5 of 5

Oh my goodness this was the most amazing place to stay. We stayed for five weeks and the location was amazing, close to everything. This place has everything and I mean everything. We felt so safe and totally at home. The golf cart was the best and we would never rent another place now without one.

We would highly recommend renting and wouldn't hesitate to rent over and over again

Simply superb

Lucky 1st Time Visitors to Hawaii

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a fabulous stay here on the island of Oahu. This was our first time visiting Hawaii and we feel so lucky to have stumbled onto this great property for our stay. Everything was as advertised and any small little issues and/ or needs were quickly and efficiently addressed by Betsy and her team. They couldn't have been nicer and more helpful. We will definitely use them again should we return to Oahu in the future! Highly recommended!

Beautiful homeaway indeed

  • 5 of 5

Our family sees traveling as the best way of spending a holiday, so we've been to many places all around the world, including Australia, all of the Asia and half of Europe, but this property and place leaves such an impression, that you can't stop thinking about it even half of the year past. For the family of three (2,5 y.o.son) the house feels like a castle, with comfortouble bedrooms, kitchen and living room, all the equipment new and easy to use, the place reminds of "desperate housewives" environment, and we liked it very much. The garage is filled with extra's that are very nice and useful, the Co Olina itself has the best beach for the small kids, the owners of property are really kind, friendly and always give swift responce to any request. The only way not to recommend this place is if you want to keep it for yourself.

Owner's Response: Vitalii - What a lovely note - Thank you! Your family is welcome back to Ko Olina anytime! It truly makes me so happy to hear when people enjoy their stay and to know you're thinking of it many months later is fantastic (although I hope it's not too cold where you are :-) We hope to have you back again some day!

Couldn't be better

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this condo for a full month. Absolute best VRBO accommodation I've experienced. Fully stocked, including spices and non-perishables in kitchen. Garage houses golf cart, snorkeling gear, rafts, cooler, etc. Location couldn't be better. Owners responsive, friendly, and professional. Absolutely no complaints or suggestions for improvement. Will definitely return. HIGHLY recommend (especially if you love paradise!)

Paradise found

  • 5 of 5

This was our first stay in Hawaii and our first vacation as a family of 4. We were nervous, of course - travelling with two little kids is usually more stressful than relaxing. It turned out to be fantastic! From the moment we entered the condo we knew that this was a place of pure happiness, love and sunshine. There was a huge box of toys and tons of books waiting for my excited boys. An ice cold bottle of white wine in the fridge, waiting for us. Crisp white, soft sheets. Sparkling clean bathrooms. A well equipped kitchen (even utensils for kids and sippy cups - you name it), a bucket of chalk for the kids to decorate the outside patio.... and of course the garage! Like a huge treasure box for beach gear... This place is wonderful, wonderful, wonderful. Thank you, Betsy! We will come back for sure.

The property is a very short (10 min, flat easy walk) to the amazing Disney Aulani resort and beautiful Ko Olina lagoons that offer protected swimming, snorkeling and boating. The natural lagoon that the property is named after 'Lanikuhonua' is a short walk (or even shorter Gem electric car or bike ride away)! Swim every day with the local Honu (turtles) that reside there. Bask in the warm sun and water that Hawaiian Royalty has called home for generations.

The unit is part of the gated Ko Olina Kai complex that has a spectacular resort pool and hot tub area with padded lounges, cabanas and additional grills. Ko Olina Kai is nestled within the Ko Olina Golf course and is just across the street from the lovely Ko Olina Lagoons & a 5 minute walk to Ko Olina Station that houses restaurants, an ABC Island Country Market (small grocery store) and even an ice cream shoppe!
