This place was absolutely amazing! Exceeded our expectations by far (and I'm very picky with my hotels/condos lol)! This was our first time on Oahu. We traveled with my husband and four kids and after spending time going around the island we are confident we chose the best place to stay. Ko Olina did not disappoint! The unit is immaculate, has all the amenities you could possibly need, is stocked well with beach items, pool towels etc. we had plenty of room and sleeping space for the 6 of us. Ray was polite and helpful with our reservation. Check-in was super easy, our check-in guide was super friendly, brought us upstairs and provided all the info we needed on the unit and grounds. The villas are located on the most beautiful lagoon - clean, crystal blue water with great snorkeling for the kids. It was never crowded, even on weekends. We went to the beach daily and ended at the beautiful pool each night. The grounds are beautiful and the kids have the option to feed the koi daily. We walked next door to the Aulani and I was quickly reminded why I chose not to stay there - beach packed like sardines and kids and people everywhere! Trust me - stay at the villas instead! We were able to stock up on groceries at Wal mart for the week and it was so nice to have such a spacious kitchen and unit to make dinner and lounge around in. It was a truly wonderful stay and I couldn't recommend it more!
Loved the location! Staff was great and Ray was very helpful. He answered any questions I had prior to my trip. Also, the pictures don’t capture how nice the unit is. This was the first time staying in Ko Olina and I would definitely return to the Ko Olina Villas. The property is well kept and love how the beach is just steps away from their pool!
This was an exceptionally great place to stay. The property and unit were better than expected. Easy process and wonderful experience. Thank you so much for a wonderful stay!
Pictures on VRBO didn’t do this place justice. Great condo and everything you need. Would definitely book again.
The location of the building is amazing. It is not an ocean view. There is a partial ocean view from a very far distance I am not sure if you can even consider that a partial ocean view. The location is unbeatable. It is 5 minute walk from the building to the beach through the pool area which is beautiful. Four beautiful lagoons and lots of restaurants and shopping areas nearby. The condo itself could use better furniture and decoration it feels like a waste since the condo is very nice. It is not spacious enough for 6 people like advertise online. Communication with a property manager is basic. He answered or responded to our calls but we were very disappointed with him not willing to allow us to stay in the property after we check out the condo. We had a flight late in the day. We asked the front desk to stay in the pool area until around 5 pm because our flight was leaving at 8 pm. They were happy to accommodate us but the property manager refused to do so and to work something out. Any resort or hotel would allow their guests to wait on the property after checking out the room. He blamed on the resort staff but we noticed that was his decision alone. That was very disappointed
This was our first time in Ko'Olina. The condo was beautiful and the location is our new favorite place to stay in Oahu. Ray was an amazing host. He answered within minutes with any questions we had.
The location was great, and the condo was awesome. We had great snorkeling right down a the complex lagoon. The condo has 16 foot sliding doors out to the patio and every morning we started with breakfast on the patio. Would definitely stay again if we get back to Oahu. Our host was very helpful and communication was excellent.
We’ve stayed at this complex before and love it. Best in Ko Olina. This unit was perfect for our family of four. Super comfortable and has everything needed for a great week. Would return for sure!
The owner has excellent communication and was responsive to all our needs. The dryer broke during our visit and was fixed within 2 days. The unit could have been stocked a little better as we ended up having to buy detergent and paper towels. The on-site support was helpful on the front end of our trip but non-responsive during the second half. This unit got the job done but I’d probably stay in another unit in the same property next visit.
Great location, with a well equipped unit. Grounds are beautiful
Ray was extremely helpful getting the arrangements secured and our stay was memorable. The unit luxurious and the location on island ideal. Definitely a vacation we would do again!
Ray’s spot served our group of 4 very well. Checkin was smooth, the unit looks even better in person, and the amenities (pools, jacuzzi’s, and gym) at the resort we’re great. We went on several day excursions just about everyday and it was great going back to the property to relax and enjoy the pool or bar downstairs. Ray was a flexible host and provided us with a late checkout upon request. Will stay here again in the future.
The villa was well kept and comfortable with plenty of room for the 4 of us. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook or heat up our meals. The grounds were well kept; we enjoyed the quiet pool. There's a nice walkway that connected the 4 lagoons. Overall a nice stay.
This place is amazing! Ray was a pleasure to work with. He always answered questions in a timely manner. Our housekeeper at the villa also did everything he could to meet our needs. This villa, even though it was in the back corner and did not have an amazing view as another I stayed in, was great! Everything was in working order. All appliances worked well and there was plenty of tools to cook with. There were beach toys and chairs to use if needed. The only complaint I have with all the units at this resort are that there is not much room for storing dry food.
The resort itself is amazing! There are two pools (one quiet and one family friendly). The family friendly one is amazing. Our boys loved playing in it. And the lagoon is so relaxing. If you’re looking to surf or boogie board, this would not be your place to do it, but there are beaches you can that are a short drive away. The staff is very friendly and try their best to accommodate your needs.
I love Ko Olina. The property grounds were perfect with the pool, lagoon, and location. Ray’s condo was well equipped with all the kitchenware for full meals, and the beach supplies were very helpful.
We really enjoyed this beautiful, clean and perfectly equipped apartment a lot. Communication with the owner is easy and very helpful. Ko’Olina is the perfect spot for families to enjoy the pools, the beach and stunning sunsets. We can honestly recommend this gem to others.
The condo was perfect for our family's trip to Oahu, very clean and the location was unbeatable! Ray was an amazing host and very helpful throughout the whole booking process. He was very easy to get in touch with and extremely accommodating. We had a great time and would love to stay here again in the future!
Wonderful stay, great memories made with my family!!! The beach villa resort was amazing! Ray’s place was perfect for my family, location was great, beds were comfortable and we had everything we needed. The only negative part was that the lagoons did not allow umbrellas or any kind of beach covering, so it was pretty difficult to get shade for my infant son. After the 2nd day, we were done going to the private lagoon and chose to go to the paradise cove public beach, which was perfect!!! It was walking distance and we made lots of memories at the beach. Will definitely go back!
We had a great time and really didn't want to leave! This was a Family vacation and did not disappoint. Ray was fantastic the whole way through, from pre-booking, answering questions, attentive and responsive right through check in. We did read the reviews before booking and the positive feedback was on point. I did read a concern about the A/C but we found if you utilize the ceiling fans the A/C works just fine, we even had to turn it down sometimes. We were at Ko Olina from June 13-June 20 visiting from CA. This was our second stay at the resort. The home is nicely appointed with Hawaiian themes & art work throughout. We had ALL the amenities of home! The bedrooms and bathrooms were clean and comfy, spacious as shown, everything was spotless and in working order. Ray's place came with beach gear that we were able to pack along for our trips to the lagoons which are just a short walk from the home. The pictures on VRBO don't really do this place justice. It is much nicer. The resort really does have everything you need with pools, gym, lagoons, beach access and proximity to the rest of the island is ideal for us. With larger hotels within walking distance as well as the ABC Store and other goods/services in the local plaza we were able to find what we needed and more. We did cook a lot, and found the local Costco in Kapolei just a short drive away. We highly recommend this resort as well as this unit, there was room for all, great wifi, awesome lanai with partial ocean views, quiet, peaceful and all that is Hawaii. We are already planning our next trip back!
This was our first trip ever to the islands and we had an amazing time.
We had been planning this trip for a couple years and things were postponed and rescheduled and postponed because of COVID.
In fact we had planned to stay at another place but because of COVID we had to scramble and rebook. We got lucky and Ray’s property was available and it made for an epic family trip.
Quiet, clean, just a few steps from the quiet and. It crowded beach. We always came back after a day of sightseeing to the pool or beach.
Thanks Ray for an amazing place for our family. We hope to visit again very soon!
We absolutely loved this condo. It was well-stocked, and had everything we needed. We cooked quite a bit, and there was everything we needed for that. The bathtubs are amazing! The facilities for these condos are also great. We really loved the fitness center and the pools.
Very nice condo, lovely lenai with partial ocean view. So nice to be able to spread out and do laundry. 100 recommend.
Half an hour west of Honolulu, in a great location in a row of resorts. Swimming in salt water lagoon or several pools. Easy access to a variety of restaurants. Condo itself quite modern and comfortable and quiet.
The property has 2 pools and a fantastic lagoon. There are 4 lagoons walking distance and Aolani is a 5 min walk. There is Starbucks and breakfast places 5 min walk. The property is quite and very clean. The owner responds right away. Grocery store 7 min drive and restaurants and golf course super close! We enjoyed our stay so much we are coming back for New Years!!!!
This condo met our needs perfectly! Our family of four had everything we needed for our stay in Ko Olina. The condo itself was clean and nicely decorated but also very kid-friendly, the beds were very comfortable, and all of the appliances and A/C worked perfectly. We had all the towels, extra pillows, supplies, etc. we needed. There was also some miscellaneous snorkel gear which was great to have on hand for our visits to the dreamy lagoons. Mostly kid sizes.
The area is lovely and the resort has many amenities - the two pools at the resort are great and the resort is walking distance to several restaurants. We ended up getting grocery delivery to the condo.
Check-in was seamless and the hosts went out of their way to accommodate us.
Thank you, and we can't wait to return!
We loved our stay here. We were travelling with our two toddlers, and this area was fantastic. The beach was amazing, and the pools were awesome as well. Snorkelling off the beach was amazing- saw a couple sea turtles and lots of fish! We walked around the other hotels in the area, but preferred this property, as it didn't feel crowded at all. Always able to get chairs around the pool area, and lots of space and privacy in the pool. Lots of good restaurants within walking distance. We honestly didn't even leave to other beaches, as this area is so amazing.
We enjoyed our stay tremendously at this spot. The condo is amazing! Ray was fantastic to deal with. His response to any communication was always rapid. We had our 1 year old grand daughter with us and were pleasantly surprised that there was a playpen, high chair and even a training potty available. A truly fantastic stay and property! If we ever come back to Oahu, I would definitely stay here again. The facilities of the pools the gardens only added to an already great place! Our baby loved the fish as well! The staff always pleasant and helpful.
We absolutely enjoyed our winter getaway at Ray’s property. Everything was smooth from check-in to departure and we appreciated the attention to detail. Can’t wait to be back.
We loved everything about this property. The condo had everything we needed and beyond. It was incredibly clean, beautifully decorated and very spacious for our family of 4. The location is spectacular with ocean views, beautiful common areas and pools, easy access to the beach and walking distance to other resorts and shops. Ray was very kind, responsive and easy to work with. We would definitely return!
We loved the balcony and the accordion doors. The kitchen was great! The location was great easy access to the beach and shops! Had a wonderful time! Thank you!
This is a beautiful condo and property. Sits between the Marriott and Disney properties which seem so large and busy. This place was just as lovely without the crowds. Great location to get around the island. Communication with the owner was great. Highly recommend this place if you are visiting O’ahu!
We loved our stay at this property! It had all we needed for our family… comfy sleeping arrangements, great kitchen, nice eating area on balcony. The resort, Beach Villas was amazing! We loved the tranquil KoOlina area compared to the congestion of Waikiki. The lagoon beaches were super for swimming with young kids (ages 5-11). The sand is soft and the waves were tame. We loved the pools too. There is a lap pool/quiet pool which we didn’t really use. We spent most of our time at the sprawling pool for families which ranged 3-5 feet, was nice temperature and also had two hot tubs, and a small 1 foot baby pool. Can’t wait to come back!
We have stayed at "Ray's Place" several times and each time we have been totally happy with everything! This time there was a new dining room table, (which we love) as well as comfortable new chairs at the bar and table. The new living room furniture was also comfortable and inviting.
Our unit was thoroughly cleaned when we walked in and it felt like home away from home. All guests staying at the Beach Villas were very compliant about wearing masks in public areas. The staff was most inviting and were very accommodating when we needed a guest parking spot for my sister who came to visit.
On occasion when we wanted to contact
Ray, he responded very quickly! We will definitely plan to stay here in the future and am happy to recommend Ray's condo to anyone wanting a perfectly peaceful vacation on Oahu!
Great lectionary with beautiful pools and fantastic beach. Close to fabulous restaurants.
We really enjoyed this lovely condo. Very clean with nice furniture and pleasing decor.
My only issue was the lack of control over the A/C. It seems there were resets or owner controlled remote resetting. I’m on vacation. This is expensive. Let me set the temperature to my comfort please. Other than the constant battle with the thermostat it was really nice.
We enjoyed our stay at Ray’s condo. The location is great and the beach is amazing! We had a problem with the dish washer and Ray was very helpful trying to get the situation resolved! Thank you so much for our stay! We’ll definitely be back.

Like some of the other reviews, the photos don't do it justice. We could not have been more pleased with our stay - enjoyed our entire stay and did not want to leave Ko'Olina
Spacious unit with incredible kitchen
Bedrooms and bathrooms are large
Multiple elevators in each building - made it feel private despite being there being many units
Corner unit close to the elevator but extremely quiet
Parking is also close to the elevator, but if there was any downside it would be the size of the parking spot. Would recommend not getting anything larger than a mid size or MPV. A full size SUV or minivan would be near impossible to park in the reserved spots as they are extremely narrow.
Outside of that...this was perfect. I would come and stay again in a heartbeat. Hands down one of the best vacations I've had.
Place was amazin, family loved it. Staff was really helpful and the beach was very close with a beautiful view.
We had a fantastic and very comfortable stay! Thank you!
Our family enjoyed our one week stay. Family wished we stayed for two weeks at this great place.
Beautiful property! Pictures can’t do it justice! Property owner responsive to questions. Grounds people helpful. Relaxing environment! Absolutely amazing!
