Best place in Hawaii!!!

My family of 6 and I, stayed in Diana's condo for 8 nights during Thanksgiving this year. The condo has everything you think of. It is perfect for families with young children. Our son is 4 years old and absolutely loved the kid's games, toys, movies, and the Hawaiian Children's books that the condo offers for the little ones. Also, the views from the balcony are amazing! Great sunset views with comfortable seating on the lanai; no need to leave your place at all! I highly recommend Diana's condo to all friends and family. We visit Ko Olina Resort each year for Thanksgiving from Seattle, and I can't imagine a better lodging choice for our family! Mahalo for a great vacation!

Serene and beautiful Hawaiian retreat

My husband works long hours, six days a week, and doesn't take vacations. I was astonished when he announced that he wanted to go to Hawaii for Thanksgiving this year. I vaulted into action, and feel very lucky to have found this beautiful, serene condo in Ko'Olina. It was exactly the place we dreamed of, and our vacation was so lovely that we've already made plans to come back next year. After we arrived at the airport, we picked up our rental car and drove to Whole Foods, where we loaded up food for breakfasts and lunches for the week ahead. Then we drove to Ko'Olina and were greeted by the very friendly Diana. She helped us find the parking space, get all our stuff up to the condo, and learn the mysterious ways of the light switches. The photos, while perfectly accurate, don't do it justice. As soon as we crossed the threshold, I felt myself relax. Our days soon settled into a routine: breakfast, morning walk, lunch, afternoon visit to the beautiful poolside hot tubs, evening stroll along the waterfront to one of the local resorts for dinner. A more energetic family could pack the days with exploring the island, trips into Honolulu, and swimming in the clear water of the lagoon. We chose the laziest of vacations, reading, drawing, and lounging on the balcony. Here are a few things I loved about the condo: The balcony, facing north, is shaded. Between the shade and the ocean breeze, the temperature was always delightful there. The kitchen is fully stocked, so that I was able to find whatever utensil I reached for. Even better, the appliances are high quality and easy to use. The nearby resorts are nearly invisible. I loved how quiet and uncrowded the grounds of the villas are, especially when compared to the beach chair hubbub at the resorts. However, I also appreciated having access to the excellent resort restaurants, a nice break from cooking every night. One of the great things about the lagoon is that the crescent of perfect sand is ringed by a crescent of well-tended grass with palm trees. For those of us who prefer shade to sun, there was always a cool shady patch to plunk our beach chair down in. The condo's fully stocked "beach closet", with chairs, coolers, beach towels and such, makes trips to the lagoon easy and convenient. There is no place better suited for relaxing and getting away than the condo in Ko'Olina, The proof? It made a vacation-lover of my workaholic husband.

Amazing condo and even better location

Our family of 6 thoroughly enjoyed staying in this condo.. We have two kids, ages 8 and 10 as well as grandparents that stayed for the week. There was everything we needed and more provided. Location off of one of the lagoons is beautiful and my kids loved the gorgeous pool, which was never incredibly busy. I would absolutely recommend this place as opposed to staying at the Aulani next door. It is however, within walking distance as well as the Marriott. There are no restaurants on site, but there are several within walking distance.

Perfection in every way!!

Stop looking, stay here!! :) We just returned from our first Hawaiian vacation and our home away from home in Ko'olina was perfect in every way. Firstly, the location in Ko'olina proved to be exceptional in allowing us any amenity or activity we could want. Within a 10 minute walk are 4 star restaurants, a superb golf course, an amazing snorkeling catamaran excursion, luau, and a handy store we stopped in just about daily. We did travel the entire island and loved visiting the different beaches and towns, but every evening we were happy to return to "our" side of Oahu. Secondly, the condo is immaculate. While the photos show a beautiful unit, it's so much better in person. Comfortable bedding, top of the line appliances and electronics, and every minor detail from beach towels to a welcome basket of goodies glowed with pure aloha spirit. Lastly, but most importantly, Diana. What a thoughtful and wonderful host. From the moment we booked our stay, to weeks leading up to our trip, to communicating continuously up to meeting her in the beautiful condo lobby on our check in, I felt like we were visiting with family. Any question or need, Diana quickly replied in a warm and helpful manner. Coming from the east coast, we thought this might be our only visit to Hawaii, as the Caribbean is so much closer. Oh no no, we are dreaming and planning our return. Mahalo and Aloha!

Excellent experience - superior views and amenities

We were so impressed with the Villas, and Diana's attention to detail and service. This villa was so convenient for our family - and our kids had a blast. Sunsets every night on the Lanai, kitchen was top notch, the property was fabulous. One of the best vacations we have had in a long time. Don't hesitate to book here - you won't regret it.

Beach Villas- Ko Olina

We loved our condo. Photos represented this unit VERY well. Comfortable beds, nice quiet condo on the end. Noise at all. Beautiful view. I'd go back now but here I am at my desk, boo hoo. I'd give it 5 stars out of 5. Diana was in touch with us to see how check-in went, Cherie was awesome and showed us the basics to get us settled. We had a great time. Water was perfect, the 4 lagoons are beautiful.

Awesome Location!

We really enjoyed our stay here at Ko Olina Beach Villas. We've been to Hawaii a few times and are always looking for new locations and this place met all our expectations. Looking to come back again. Diana and Sharis were fantastic!

Just like the photos!

This condo was exactly like the photographs! Clean, spacious and beautifully decorated! The grounds are well maintained and the pools and koi ponds are gorgeous! The beautiful KoOlina beach is just steps from the condo. We were very impressed and had a wonderful vacation.
