This was a perfect place for us! The host worked with us to make our stay perfect. Most couch pull outs are uncomfortable, but my son said it was good. Our king bed was super comfortable. This was important to me. I want to get a good nights rest while on vacation. Wasn't super keen on everything shutting down at 9pm, but its not a big deal. I loved that they had boogie boards and really great snorkel gear! They worked so well! My boys loved the candies the host left for us! I was grateful for the fresh fruit! I would absolutely recommend this place to anyone looking for a home away from home! Mahalo!!
Diana was great! She met us when we arrived to show us around, checked on us throughout our stay, and responded promptly with any questions we had. Her place was beautiful, clean, and had all amenities anyone would need. The beach was great and not very crowded. The location was perfect! The only suggestion we would have would be additional lighting in the master bathroom; however we would 100% stay here again and recommend to our friends and family.
The unit is beautiful, fully stocked with all you'll need, including all beach and snoorkel gear, and Diana's details (such as the welcoming bowl of fresh fruit and nuts) were awesome.
The setting is amazing
Diana is a wonderful 5-star host
I very highly recommend this as the perfect place to stay in Oahu / Ko Olina!!
5 stars all around!
Lovely property with family pool, lap pool, along quiet beach (compared to neighboring beaches by hotel properties). Room was clean, with a whole closet full of anything you would imagine needing at the beach. Also board games for kids and adults to keep everyone busy. The balcony was large with partial view of beach on one side and mountains on the other. Mornings were lovely with the sound of birds from neighboring trees. Overall a wonderful stay and we will be back!
Loved every min of the stay. The property is excellent. Away from hustle and bustle of the city. It feels like you have the exclusive access to the lagoon. We saw the Hawaiian Monk Seal pretty much every day on our walk towards four seasons hotels. All 4 lagoons are accessible and great pathways for jog/run. The kitchen was fully stocked and with all the amenities. The day of checkout Diana reached out to me with the extended checkout time. So we got extra few hours at the property which was appreciated. They have everything from snorkeling gears, beach toys, umbrellas, chairs, igloo, beach mats and too many beach towels. It is very comfortable and easy stay. Ideal place for photoshoot as well.
Highly Recommend this property. Thank you Diana!
Our stay at this condo was absolutely wonderful. It is gorgeous and pristine with little extras throughout. The cove and beach were great for us timid swimmers, with gentle waves even when large waves were crashing outside the rock wall. The condo was very well stocked with beach supplies including snorkels, chairs, cooler, etc. We loved it here!
My family and I truly enjoyed this unit and property. The location is a less crowded area which was perfect for us!! The unit was exactly as it appears and better in person. It had all the essentials needed and extras for the beach (chairs, coolers, boogie boards, sand toys, nice towels, wagon). Diana truly is detail oriented with the personal welcome and treats welcoming you in her unit. Working with her before our arrival and during was outstanding. She was very responsive and offered plenty of helpful advice/tips. Our kids really enjoyed snorkeling in the lagoon which was a very short walk from the unit and the pool area. Our youngest loved feeding the fish! While we snorkeled we had seen plenty of fish and even a turtle! The sunsets are amazing and while we were watching one we had seen a monk seal and turtle. The bar area was nice with wonderful live music as well. Overall we had a wonderful stay and would highly recommend this until. We look forward to coming back soon!
We had a wonderful experience throughout our stay. Diana was very helpful and easy to communicate with. The condo is beautiful, and stocked with everything a family would need to enjoy Ko Olina. When we return to Ko Olina someday, we will definitely stay here again!
This property has everything: convenient location - next to the beach, close to the shops and restaurants; wonderful community with pool, bar, ponds; and the property itself - nice modern kitchen, amazing views to lagoon right from your private balcony, very good bedding and mattresses! Thank you, Diana for fresh fruits, flowers and candies! It was our best vacation!
We live here on this beautiful island 🌺 But this staycation was Amazing!! Much Mahalo to Dianna we will definitely do it again!!
Diana was fantastic to deal with, from the start of booking through to the end of our trip. She takes great pride in her specific unit, and it shows. The closet of activity gear (we called it “closet of fun!” while we were there) also sets this unit apart. It is stocked with everything we needed for fun adventures from scuba gear to air mattresses to boogie boards to beach towels to a cooler etc and even included a little wagon to transport it all. Our only quibbles: There was a shortage of towel bars & hooks in the unit. We were a party of 6, with 6 shower towels plus 6 beach towels that needed to be hung up daily. There were not enough places to hang 12 towels, especially when some of the hooks/bars needed to be used for wet swim suits and rash guards. The rules for the building include that nothing of this sort can be hung outside on the deck anywhere, including on deck furniture to dry. We had to resort to hanging over doors and door knobs, and on occasion on the back of the indoor dining chairs which is not ideal. There is a dryer in the unit, but it has a very small capacity and takes a long time to dry anything. A couple more towel bars added to the back of the bathroom doors would be helpful. Also, the small amount of storage in the kitchen was a challenge. Diana has a very well stocked kitchen, but this left no cabinet space available for storing groceries and our supplies. Our preference is to self-cater as much as possible, and we were a largish party so we had a lot of groceries on site. We did make use of some storage available in the side board in the dining room, so overall we were able to make the storage situation work albeit a little awkwardly. We were also a little thrown off by the high cost of drinks, especially cocktails, at the little bar on the property down by the beach, but took advantage of our self-catering facilities to make our own and enjoy on the deck. Overall this is a lovely property, the location paradise, and Diana’s unit is a winner. We will be back!
Property was exactly as advertised. Very clean and well maintained with everything you need for a home away from home - beach gear, fully equipped kitchen, washer/dryer, comfortable beds, first aid kit, welcome snacks & fruit. Beautiful view of the lagoon from the lanai. Felt very safe. I would definitely stay again!
The papery itself can’t be more beautiful. And Diana as the host did everything to make our visit as special as it could be. Available at anytime and super responsive.
Everything was perfect. Diane is an amazing host and the condo is exactly as described. We will be back as soon as possible.
The property is amazing and high end. The host was fantastic. Such a great Place.
I’ve stayed at the beach villas several times and this unit had everything we needed. We headed out to visit another beach and the unit had a wagon, umbrella, boogie boards, towels, sand toys, and ice chest. Everything in the unit was nice and not the typical really cheap stuff you get in rentals. Ko Olina is a great area and some days we stayed in Ko Olina and other days we ventured out. Would definitely recommend this unit and thank you to Diana for creating such a nice vacation rental!
We could not have been happier with our choice of condo. It was clean, comfortable, and the views of both the mountains and ocean were stunning. Everything that you need for your stay is included, even a wagon to help you get your things to the beach. Diana is a wonderful host who helped us with our visit tremendously.
This is a great location! Highly recommend working with Diana as she took the time to make sure we had everything we needed and even provided great suggestions for fun family outings to enjoy while we stayed. We loved the beach area, the pool and all the lovely amenities. Thank You, Diana!!
We had an amazing time at Diana’s property in Ko Olina resort. This property is absolutely magnificent and we were totally delighted with our accommodations. Diana’s property has absolutely everything that you need for an amazing trip to Oahu.
Diana as a host is above anyone I have ever dealt with on VRBO. She was incredibly helpful and always accommodating whenever we had any kind of question. She was there to receive our groceries before we arrived and even put them in the refrigerator.. not to mention that she provided us with so many options of ‘things to do’ while in Oahu.
Diana‘s Villa as well as the resort offer so many wonderful amenities but it’s impossible to list them. We did our best to enjoy as many of them as possible.
You cannot go wrong staying in this condo. The view of the beach is amazing. And Diana did her best to make sure we had wonderful lanai furniture during the painting process.
Thank you Diana for hosting us. I hope to return in November 2023!.
From the moment we booked this property, we felt special. Diana kept in touch, provided suggestions based on our interests, and answered all questions. Gabriel met us for check-in, helped us with our bags, and showed us the property (which included Hawaiian music & a special treat). The attention to detail was AMAZING. We had a few questions during our stay and we received very quick responses. If I could give more than 5 stars, I would! We will definitely come back!
Diana (our host) was warm and hospitable! Our communication with her was very smooth from beginning to end. Her condo was conveniently located away from all the hustle-bustle of the city yet close enough to the shopping area in Kapolei where we were able to buy everything we needed. Each room was beautifully and tastefully decorated. The kitchen was easy to use and Diana provided everything we needed to enjoy the beach such as picnic chairs, towels, cooler, etc. The stunning view from the condo is right by the beach and the golf course. It was quiet and relaxing during our entire stay. This condo was one of the best places we have ever rented and we would love to come back! Aloha and Mahalo, Diana— you truly made our stay memorable!
John, Keiko, and Ohana
Great property in a great location.
Just want to thank Diana for being such a great host and accommodating me and my family! I have been here at Ko Alina before and can’t think of a better place to be with family. The condo is beautiful and was perfect for all of us! The pool for the kids were beautiful and my grandkids had the best time. We loved the beach area and the easy access from the condo. We will come back again and again!
The condo is absolutely beautiful and such a great location in Ko olina with everything close by. Beautiful beach and property. Definitely worth staying at this location.
With all the excellent reviews for this property and Diana's responsiveness we knew we had chosen the right place for our 2-week family vacation. And we were not disappointed, it was exactly as we had expected, very well maintained and comfortable. Mahalo Diana for all your help and answers to my endless questions!
We had a wonderful stay here in Ko Olina! The condo was exactly as pictured with a spectacular view. Diana was so helpful before and during the trip. Would highly recommend!!
We had an absolute fabulous time during our stay! Diana is just one amazing host that makes you feel extra special and like family the entire time you are there. From the welcoming touches to the fabulous Lanai, we enjoyed every special touch. I would 100% stay here again upon our return. Diana, if you can figure out how to get Leonard's to deliver to Indiana, you will be a miracle worker - ha! Thanks again for everything!!
We made a great choice both staying in KoOlina as well as this particular villa. Diana was a gracious host and had everything imaginable to make our stay lovely. We loved having our morning coffee along the balcony, spending our days bouncing between the pool and the beach, and evenings watching the sunset and walking the ko olina paths. We made the best memories and would highly recommend this property!!
Thank you, we hope to return!!
So amazing! Condo perfect for our family of 5. Four adults and toddler. View beautiful, everything we needed for a beach day. Kitchen well stocked, easy checking and check out. Diane so wonderful she even put away our groceries! We will be back and bring more family.
We had a fantastic time with awesome views.
Thank you so much!
The condominium was perfect for our group of five adults, it truly has everything one needs for a beach vacation. Fully stocked kitchen amenities were great for preparing meals. Beach chairs and pool accessories we’re very useful. The only (minor) drawbacks were construction noise and early lawn equipment running. They were working on the building exterior during our dates. All in all, great stay and we loved sunny Ko Olina. Diana was also very responsive and helpful to work with, great communication!
Beautiful and comfortable condo, we would seek this out for future visits. The location was ideal for us as it is close to the beach and to nearby restaurants. Very quiet and well-run, check-in and check-out were seamless. Hope to return next year!
Enjoyed our time here. Beautiful condo with good-sized lanai and view of beach, waves and setting sun! Kitchen well-stocked with everything you need (incl coffee grinder, blender, lots of drink glasses, etc). Master bed ++ comfortable. Loved having the beach stuff to use (coolers, Tommy Bahama chairs, boogie boards, etc). Split our time between the beach and pool; both excellent. Nice walking paths between other Ko'olina properties. The gym was also nice to have. Only small suggestions would be: provide kitchen cloths, more dish soap, a broom/mop and a Bluetooth speaker in unit would be nice. Overall excellent place to stay and we'll be back! Thx
Due to Covid, we had to reschedule our much anticipated family vacation to Ko’Olina 3 times. Diana was very accommodating and we finally made it to celebrate Thanksgiving in paradise nearly 2 years later. It was worth the wait. The villa is spotless and has every amenity we needed in the kitchen and for endless beach fun! We really appreciated the exclusivity of the property. No huge crowds here like at the Marriott and Disney resorts next door. The Beach Villas has it all-beautiful pools, a cocktail bar, bbqs, a white sandy beach on a calm lagoon, and the beautiful sunsets. This is Paradise. We all agreed it was one of the best family vacations we’ve ever had. We can’t wait to return!
Diana's property is incredible. The pics are 100% accurate! The space was perfect for our group - 3 adults and 1 child. Host was attentive and addressed all of our questions before arrival - and was extra attentive while we were there. Partial ocean view allowed for beautiful sunsets on the balcony! The unit was clean and had all the top notch appliances. Pool, and beach access are INCREDIBLE! I am DEFINITELY staying here on our future visits!!!
Great condo only one problem with the construction noise and closeness to us
This is a beautiful, clean, and peaceful property. The condo was spacious and comfortable and the resort grounds were perfect for us and our four year old.
The perfect place to stay! The condo had a great view with easy access to the beach and all of the gear that you needed. Diana was super communicative and allowed us an early check in and late check in. 10/10 we would stay here again!
The layout of the condo is great. I would love to live there year round.
Wonderful family vacation. Condo was fantastic. Diana was responsive and helpful. The Ko Olina area had everything we needed and the lagoon was perfect for our young kids. We would absolutely stay here again.
Diana was a pleasure to rent from. Her condo is beautiful and she was a wonderful host. The pictures don’t do it justice. It is even more beautiful in person! The site is wonderfully furnished and the lagoon is perfect for swimming and snorkeling. A sea turtle swam right under me while snorkeling in the lagoon!
While there, the shower in second bathroom shower was slow to drain. I alerted Diana and a maintenance man was there within 20 minutes to repair it. I have rented many homes through VRBO and have never had such a prompt response. I can’t recommend Diana and her condo enough! My family and I are already plotting our next stay there. I don’t need to look anywhere else; this was paradise!
While the layouts of these 2 BR condos offer a similar core design and amenities, the difference between a good and a great unit is the view and the owner's attention to detail. This unit offers both. Diana has thought of everything, from kitchen utensils to beach chairs and toys to books on Hawaii. She is an excellent communicator and goes the extra mile to make her guests feel welcome. Her unit is bright and clean and feels like home. My only critique is really with the condo complex itself as room, floor and building access can be a bit tricky. Card keys are necessary almost everywhere and if you are visiting with other members of a larger party who are staying in other rooms it can be a challenge to access them.
My family of 5 loved staying at this resort! The owner personally greeted us prior to travel and at check-in . The pictures are 100% accurate - the place is beautiful and views are amazing. My kids loved the pool and we all loved the "public " lagoons that feel more private than any public beach we've been to before. I would definitely recommend this place for families or couples alone!
The location is hands down the best on the west side of Oahu. KoOlina golf club is across the street and condo is right on the beach. My wife and kids loved the beach here, it was not crowded and lagoon breaks most of the waves. We drove to some other beaches for surfing and body boarding. The condo is just as described. As the other reviews mention, Diana is a model host.
Every trip we make to Oahu we seem to upgrade where we stay and this place….well this is one I can come back over and over again so look no further! Our host greeted us with the all the aloha spirit. The condo is a 2br 2ba split plan which kept the kids on their side which was nice. The balcony was a little windy but we really enjoyed the view. You have access to a private beach that is perfect for families or if you just want to chill. Overall, our stay was perfect and we will definitely come back.
