This unit was amazing. Location couldn’t be beat. Marina was so helpful with everything. We’re definitely coming back!!
We had an amazing time at the beach. Maria’s home was clean and comfortable even for our family of 6. The pool was fun and the beach is steps away. We have no complaints.
Maria was quick to respond with a few things that came up. The location is great, we loved it!
Maria’s property was perfect for our family of 4! It was spacious, clean, and had all of the amenities we needed! The beach towels, chairs, and toys were an added bonus. We loved our stay!
We loved the condo. Beautiful view of the pool area. Beds were very comfortable and everyone here was very courteous and helpful. Lovely place!
We had a great time. Place was very nice, quiet and well located. Strongly reccommend it.
Beautiful unit with gorgeous property. We loved the pools, feeding the fish every morning and watching the beautiful sunsets! Easy proximity to Honolulu, the north shore, and west shore.
Had an incredible stay at this property!

This condo and property is perfection. Came with the whole family including 2 adults, 3yo, 8yo and 9yo. The 2 bedroom was great, two older girls shared the 2nd bed and the condo had a pack-n-play we set up for the little guy to nest down in. Great to have our own living space, kitchen, lanai and washer/dryer. Not to mention the absolutely beautiful property, awesome lagoon pool, koi ponds and beach lagoon! We didn’t want to go anywhere else, definitely coming back!
This was my first time to booked from VRBO. We normally checked in through a regular hotel but this time I wanted a family vacation that is peaceful and quiet. This condo has it all!! I am so glad I booked this amazing condo. Checked in was flawless and the unit was clean. Maria was easy to work with. She answered all my questions as soon as possible. The pool was great for kids. We had a wonderful time. My only suggestion is to perhaps put a small convenience store in the villa. There's an Island Market close by which is a 4 mins drive but its a bit far to walk if you will buy groceries. Other than that this condo unit is amazing. I would totally recommend it to any future guests. My husband and I loved the kitchen!! It's definitely a plus to have such a high standard kitchen 😍. Thank you Maria for an amazing family vacation. If we come back in Oahu, we, all definitely rent this unit again.
Hands down one of the best rentals we've ever stayed in. It was fully stocked with everything we needed including pool and beach things. Location was perfect for us (we stopped at the Costco on the way in). We toured Aulani next door and was so glad that we chose to stay here. We will be back for sure.
Well stocked with everything you need for a beach-y family vacation. --towels, sand toys, cart, beach chairs etc. It was also wonderful to have a nicely stocked kitchen so we cooked a lot of our meals.
Check in was 4pm but our flight arrived earlier. They kindly accommodated our schedule and checked us in at 1 pm--very appreciated by tired travelers!
We walked to the Four Seasons, Aulani, and Marriott via the connected foot paths. We much preferred the beach/lagoon nearest the complex (Beach Villas at Ko Olina)--not crowded at all compared to the other nearby lagoons. We had a lovely vacation and hope to return soon.
Also appreciated the quick, responsive, and easy communication with Maria.
Easy check in- wonderful place to stay!! Very relaxing.
Really appreciate the availability for our whole family to spend some time together
Property was as is. No complaints. We had a lot of pool and lagoon time which the kids LOVED (6 and 12). We rented a car and drove all over the island, no problem at all. Felt very safe in Ko Olina area. Property is very secure. Definitely would book again!
The apartment had everything we needed, including great snorkeling gear and beach gear. Only problem was getting our kids out of the lagoon pool - they didn’t want to leave.
We stayed in Maria’s place with 4 adults and 2 children. It worked out perfectly. The Ko Olina Beach Villas have so many good amenities with kids, it was our second time, we love it so much.
Was a little upset by check in, had to wait for the front desk to reach owner and to be able to go up to our villa. After a long day of travel with kids it was frustrating having to wait 30 minutes when I was assured check-in was at 4.
Kitchen was very basic and lacking some good plasticware. Could afford to invest in some better kitchen supplies.
Plenty of beach towels, chairs, umbrellas and the wagon was helpful for bringing groceries up. Nice to have a washing machine. Pack your own dryer sheets if you plan to do laundry.
The stay at the Villa's was more than expected. Swimming , snorkeling or leisurely walking is all there. Great stay!
Ko-Olina is a great facility. Far enough from, yet close enough to downtown. Plenty of food options and beach options. Also, a great area to walk or go for a run. Exercise facilities are clean and have plenty of equipment.
The check in process was very easy with good parking facilities.
The unit was clean and well-appointed with beach towels, chairs, etc. and the kitchen had everything needed. All bathrooms had welcome toiletries to help with easy arrival.
Maria was great and made check in and check out easy. I forgot an item and with a simple call was able to coordinate with Maria for it to be FedExed to me--great service.
Beautiful unit, great property, very chill and not busy. The unit itself was spacious, clean, modern, and classy. Having all the the things you need in the kitchen and bathrooms was a huge bonus and made the stay extremely easy and enjoyable. This is one of the most beautiful locations on the island.
This unit was very nice. I have stayed in one other, just two floors below, and this one was nicer. The unit wasn't quite ready by check-in time but we were able to drop our bags and head to a nearby happy hour. The kitchen was well outfitted, I think the only thing we missed having was a pitcher. Most importantly, the master bed was very comfortable. We would choose this condo again.
The family and I throughly enjoyed the two bedroom Villa. We are planning on another trip to the same place.
I was extremely impressed with the condo. It had (almost) everything we need to make the most of our trip. We were welcomed with a gift basket which was a lovely surprise, and it included a perfectly ripe pineapple which ended up being a lifesaver since we surprisingly couldn't find ripe pineapples at any of the local stores. The master bedroom was amazing, and the bed was incredibly comfortable. I want to buy it haha. The kitchen and Lanai were fantastic, we cooked great meals every night. Safeway and Costco are 10 mins away.
While we did come prepared with spices, the kitchen was fairly well stocked with a variety of spices, oil, rice etc, likely left by previous guests.
There are 3 hot tubs, a lap pool, a normal pool, and a pool bar, which are all immaculate. BBQs are tough to get access to since there aren't very many and everyone wanted to use them, but it wasn't a problem for us. Live music every night by the bbqs/bar was also an awesome touch.
The facility itself is not very busy and we never had to compete for access to anything (chairs, beach space, gym equipment, etc). If you walk over to the neighboring resorts you will appreciate how peaceful this condo is in comparison.
Snorkeling at the lagoon is fantastic. I've snorkeled a lot and while it is small, I saw a really surprising amount of fish and variety. It's also very beginner friendly, regardless how rough the surf is, the lagoon is calm. It is possible to snorkel outside of the lagoon, but be careful, it is absolutely not for beginners.
One "downside" is that everything shuts down at 9pm. Like pools, hot tubs, gym, etc. Not the end of the world, but I would have preferred 10.
One area for improvement is that the non-serrated knives are almost all nicked up/dull/useless and the honing tool has been damaged to the point it doesn't work. Don't plan on any precision cutting....
Tons of beach towels and the checkout procedure is the easiest I've ever experienced.
The bidet changed my life haha
Would love to stay here again.
The one thing I would ask the villas to improve would be supplying more than 2 rolls of Toilet paper for 5 guests for an 8 day period. $650 per night guests shouldn’t need to purchase such items. This units kitchen utensils & bathroom towels are extremely cheap in quality.
Maria (host), made every request happen. Room very spacious for the 2 of us. Room would probably accommodate 2 couples with little child.
Grounds were immaculate! Michelle at beachside bar made awesome!
Listing is as shown and there's plenty of beach gear to make your stay even more fun. Beds are comfy and you have plenty of towels and linens for your trip. Kitchen is well stocked for those who like to cook. Maria did a great job taking care of our needs and even had a car for us to rent! If you need a place to stay in Oahu quit looking and book now!
We usually stay at luxury hotels, but with a nine night trip planned, we decided it would be better to be able to cook and have our own comfort foods, especially with two young kids (ages 4 and 6). What a perfect place for us!
Great property! Maria was very helpful when we arrived for check-in. We noted a few things that needed attention and she responded and said they would be addressed. Two thimbs up!
We enjoyed everything about the location
The property was in an amazing area of Oahu, far enough away from the crowds but easy accessibility to the whole island.
The only ding I had about our experience is that there was little information as to how they wanted the room left upon departure - I did text the property manager, but never got a response…but it was a holiday weekend so I don’t hold that against her…she had been quite responsive up until that time.
The property itself was beautiful, the rooms were spacious and exactly as advertised. We immensely enjoyed the balcony with its stunning views and amazing ocean breeze - it was definitely more than we expected. Definitely would come back!
very nice location and facility - close to restaurants and shops if you don't rent a car.
We are so happy that we chose to stay at this property in Ko’Olino. The beauty and serenity of the Ocean Villa property is relaxing and family friendly. There is a great walking path and exercise path with plenty of chairs for guests. We loved the condo, kitchen and lanai. It is well maintained and It had everything we needed except you’ll need to bring beach towels and the washer/dryer are very small and dryer doesn’t get the job done. That wasn’t a big deal for us. Maria was responsive throughout our trip planning process- Mahalo! There are plenty of places to eat within walking distance. Would recommend renting a car to explore the island and visit Honolulu.
As usual, our stay was outstanding. Our host contact, Maria Karimova was very hospitable.
The property was perfect for my family. It had a lot of amenities including a loaded kitchen which was helpful when traveling with a child. We would definitely book again in the future.
Property and time spent on the resort were perfect! Thank you!
The property is simply beautiful and just as described in the listing. Highly recommend it for all, including those with family and children. Plenty of things to do on the property or a short drive to the other scenic areas on Oahu. Will come back again.

Loved this property & location! Maria was extremely easy to reach (she even texted me on the day of arrival to make sure we arrived and sent me all the WiFi info). The unit is well equipped (loved having the beach chairs) and the lagoon was the best on the island! You will not be disappointed!
Thank you Maria for making our stay that much better! 🤙🏻
We had such a great stay at this property. Maria was a lovely host who responded quickly to our questions. The property itself was well maintained and clean. It had everything we needed and more. They had plenty of beach towels, chairs, coolers, floaties, beach toys and a wagon to carry it all. The kitchen even had a rice cooker which was a bonus for us. The primary bathroom had a washlet which was a nice bonus. The beds and other furniture were comfy and we spent a lot of time relaxing on the lanai. We would definitely like to stay here again and will be recommending it to friends and family.
The amenities were very accommodating.
Kitchen, top notch
We enjoyed the room very much. I didn’t enjoy the view and felt a little misled learning that we could see the ocean from the Lanai. We felt the building blocked our vision of the ocean by 90 %. The sliding doors off the kitchen were very nice to keep open and we spent a lot of time outdoors. My favorite part of staying here was the lagoon as it was quiet and not crowded with people. The grounds were stunning and well manicured. We also appreciated having use of the lawn chairs, towels and snorkeling equipment. Maria was prompt to reply to any questions we had. KO’OLINA is a beautiful area of Oahu.
Usually, I expect exactly what I see and am generally disappointed. However, this property is EXACTLY as you see in the pictures and went WAY ABOVE our expectations!! This was our first trip to Hawaii and we were hesitant to use VRBO for this trip, but we are so glad we did. This place is so beautiful and serene! Not only is the condo just perfect for our family, but the views are breathtaking! And we have our own private oasis cove that was never crowded as well as restaurants and stores just down the street! Everyone was friendly and the entire experience was perfect. Our host ALWAYS kept in touch and answered every question with quick responses. We will definitely come again! Even the price was incredible, with everything that came with it. Very worth it!! 5 stars all around!!!
Very nice place - well kept - we had a fabulous time - lots of room a great view of the pool area
One of the best hotels I’ve ever been privileged enough to stay at. Gorgeous building, and it only gets more breathtaking when you walk in. High quality rooms, spacious and convenient located.
We are a family of 5 and every single one of us enjoyed the property, the amenities and the short walk to the beach. Simply loved our visit there!

I can write very long review.
But I will be simple and key to points.
I had best vacation in life in Maria's place
Great location. Condo was comfortable and included some unexpected extras - boogie boards, snorkel equipment, beach chairs, sand toys, floats, ice chests, and fold down wagon.
This villa was perfect for our family trip! It was equipped with all the beach supplies as well as household items to make our stay as comfortable as possible. The villa itself is well maintained with Maria and her team quick to respond to any of our needs. With easy access to the beach, property amenities, and a great view of the sunset, our family will for sure try to stay here again
After a last minute work trip came up that we decided to turn into a family vacation we are so thankful to have found this condo! Prior to check in Maria answered all of our questions very quickly. We checked in late and the staff was immediately so kind and welcoming and made it a breeze which was great since we were all exhausted. The condo itself was in great condition and beautifully decorated. The location was amazing and we had easy access to a Costco and other shopping. And the property itself is gorgeous! And the lagoons are beautiful and so easily accessible. We had a grandparent with us who is currently in a walking boot and slow so the easy accessibility was such a huge bonus and he was able to sit in the grass above the lagoon and still enjoy watching the kids play. My kids loved the pool and the adults loved the quiet pool and sneaking away to enjoy it. Overall it was such a great 2 weeks and we will definitely be back and highly recommend this condo!
My family and I stayed for about 9 days and it was fantastic. The condo seems very new and freshly furnished with high quality appliances etc., the host was amazing, and of course the location is impossible to beat. I'm already thinking of coming back next year.
The only complaint is with the check-in staff at the resort itself, who seemed to barely know what they were doing. The host helped get everything resolved though and in general we had a great time.
