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 Kapolei
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!

Perfect place for families with young children!
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.
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
Lovely as always!
This was our 4th time staying at the villa. We just love coming here! It's the most comfortable place for families with kids. It's well appointed, stylishly decorated and comfortably furnished. The owners go out of their way to maintain the unit and keep it in top notch shape. The golf cart is so much fun and make getting to the lagoons a breeze. We've just about outgrown the 2 bedroom unit are looking forward to trying out their 3 bed unit in the future. Don't hesitate to book here, you'll be guaranteed a very pleasant holiday if you do.
Fantastic very clean place
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
Lucky 1st Time Visitors to Hawaii
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
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.
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
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!)
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!
