We could not have asked for a better experince for our first trip to Hawaii. The villa was great as well as all contact with the property owner Dan. You have all you need to make your stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible right in your villa. It is very quiet with the pool and bbq grills just a short walk away. Our three year old son had a great time at the pool on days we decided to stay on the property and had lots of beach equipment to take with him when we went out to the lagoons and beaches. The villa is in the Ko Olina resort area which (in my opinion) is one of the nicest locations on the island for a family with small children to stay. You have the lovely lagoons close by and the Disney Aulani resort just down the road. I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a great place to stay in Oahu! You're only a short drive away from all the places on the island you want to see. Also, just a short drive away from Costco, Target, Kmart, Safeway and even Ross for anything you may need. It was a pleasure dealing with such a great property owner who was also kind enough to send us some suggestions of places to visit and dine at. Which was wonderful since we had never been to the island. Dan, we look forward to coming back to stay at your villa very soon to finish visiting and dinning at the places you suggested (we are about 3/4 through the list.) Mahalo!

The place was just as pictured and more. It was very clean and comfortable. The area is fantastic, it was a joy to go do activities and come back to Ko Olina resort and our villa. It felt safe, quiet and cozy. Having the lagoons so close by was also great. We would do our morning run from the villa to the lagoons and back. It was wonderful. Working with Dan was also great. We would definitely stay here again & would definitely recommend this place.

Like the place since it is in walking distance to the great beaches and just being in the Ko Olina resort complex. Great recreation area and nice swimming pool within minutes of the villa.

Ko'Olina Hillside Retreat
Ko'Olina Hillside Retreat
Great place. I'd definitely stay there again. The location is great. I liked how quiet it was. There were several things that I thought needed improvement. The cleanliness of the carpeting and the living/dining room furniture and the communication with the onsite resident manager. While I realize it's his job to care for the premises, he was very rude and abrupt to some of my family members who arrived at the pool. Yes, I will agree that the two young men shouldn't have jumped the gate after realizing the access key wasn't working, but the RM could have maintained his composure a lot more professionally. It really shook up my relatives who were there for the first time to join me poolside. There was about 15 of us watching him charge out from his home to berate my two nephews. I apologized profusely to calm him down and explained to him that my pool access key was working for a while and then suddenly inoperable. While still upset, he explained to me that I was suppose to register with him when I arrived. This is information that I either overlooked or it wasn't relayed to me. Again, I apologized for my ignorance. He didn't let it go very easily. It just created a very tense moment between us, but it was resolved immediately as I signed registration papers a few minutes later. Would these minor details/experiences deter me from vacationing at the Hillside again? Not at all. I loved the solitude, overall cleanliness, the four mile roundtrip tree lined run, the proximity to all the other Ko'Olina attractions, and ease of which I worked with the homeowner. Our communication via emails was prompt, simple, and easy. I will definitely book again, if I don't purchase one myself.

Owner response: Thanks for the honest and productive input ... I think you came right after a party that 'messed up' our carpet. If I would have known at your check in, I would have had the carpet cleaning come and clean for you .. Since I was not in the island, I could not check; I went by the input from my cleaning service. Regarding the Property Manager, I apologize, but I had no control on how he behave .. Thanks again, I have been and am trying to be honest to everyone .. not just on the good part but also when it was not perfect. Thanks,
We really enjoyed our stay! The unit was quiet and well equipped. The pool and barbecue in the common area were great. Being so close to the lagoons and resorts made everyday a wonderful experience. Hope we can return one day soon!

Dan’s condo is in an excellent location with easy access to some of the nicest beaches in Oahu and it is only a short drive to Waikiki and the North Shore if you seek to explore other parts of Oahu. We really enjoyed our stay at Dan’s place and our kids are already asking us when we will be going back.

We rented 2 side by side villas in order to accomodate 11 and found it very convenient. The accomodations were clean, tastefully decorated, a quiet location and located within the Ko'Olina gated resort area. Dan was a pleasure to work with. From beginning to end our dealings with Dan were handled professionally yet we felt as if we belonged to his list of family and friends. We intend to rent from Dan again.

What can I say about our trip to paradis ?, the home we stayed in was truly a wonderful place , having had the benefit of multiple trips over the years I can safely say this was the best place we have ever stayed in. Spotless clean, beautiful surroundings and thanks to Dan for making the effort to leave us some tips on places to visit. I cannot recommend this highly enough We will be returning without a doubt.

We stayed at the Ko Olina condo listed here and were very happy with the accomodations and service supplied by owner. Ko Olina is a very tranquil and beatiful property. We would recomend for anyone looking to relax and unwind.Close enough to were ever you want to go, yet totaly out of the way from huusle and bussle. Also realy appreciated the addition information suplied by owner to assist in some eatery venues and must tries.

Enjoyed the villa, great size and facilities (kitchen, etc.). The lagoons were nice, especially #2. Wish the parking for them was a little larger. Nice location away from Honolulu. We didn't understand the point of checking in at the gate. It wasn't security per se, but it wasn't a big deal either. Nice pool. Only once was a neighbor really loud after midnight, usually the complex was very quiet. Thanks for a very nice stay,

Staying at this condo during our vacation in Oahu was the best experience we have ever had. The surrounding landscapes and the property were spectacular. We've felt relaxed and amazed from the drive into the community and to the openning of the front door. "WOW! That's Nice." It has everything you may need. You want to cook? It has all you need (pots,pans,stoves,frig,esential spices, plates...). Should I say more? We didn't cook; too many beautiful and fun things around us to enjoy and one week to do them. For longer stay, cooking may be a preference. You want to go swimming? There beach towels, beach chairs, body boards and more are available. It was perfect for family vacationer like ourselve. Within the community, they have the best luau in Hawaii called Paradice Cove Luau. The famous country club's restaurant, "Roy's" was good, but can be better. We give it an 8.5. On the other side of the street, we have tried and love the Marriott breakfast buffet. A "9.5" from us. It was walking distance from the beach front. Overall, I would love to come back and stay at this getaway.

My family had a great time at the Ko Olina condos. The condos had all the ammenties that one could think of (kitchen supplies, dishwashing liquid, beach toys, extra sheets, etc.) The condos were clean, spacious, quiet, very close to the pool/bbq, close to the Ko Olina lagoons, and in an absolutely quiet area. I could not have asked for anything more. Because my family was staying at the condos for my wedding, I wanted them to feel like they were at home and Dan made sure that was the case. He also offered us the condos for an extra few days because no one was occupying the facility at the time of check in. He went above and beyond in trying to accomdate my families needs. Thank you!!!

We rented both of the side-by-side villas in Ko Olina and had an absolutely wonderful time. The villas were more than comfortable with everything we needed and in reasonable proximity to all of the wonderful Ko Olina facilities. The owner/landlord was wonderful to deal with as well. There were 11 of us in the two villas, including a 15 mo. old and a great time was had by all. We'll be back.

Stayed at Ko'Olina Hillside Villa #6 February 17th-23rd. Found the unit very comfortable, attractively appointed, conveniently located. The two bathrooms upstairs, the kitchen appliances and utensils, towels, etc. met all needs. Located nearby the Rec/Swimming Pool, and with good security, very enjoyable stay. Everything including the flat screen TVs worked nicely. We liked the privacy away from the Waikiki crowds, yet not far from Aloa Moana or the Wards Centre and right near Kapolei for some nice dinners. Good value and would recommend for those wishing to stay on Oahu, but away from all the tourists.

We recently rented one of Dan's Ko Olina homes for a business trip. The townhome was lovely, practically new, and in a very nice neighborhood, just a short walk from white-sand beaches on the most beautiful shore of Oahu. The real treat was Dan himself. If you want to make booking a vacation home a breeze, he's your man. In other words, if you're lucky enough to work with Dan, you're lucky enough!

I highly recommend staying at this condo. The condo is a great place to stay. Our family stayed in Villa 6 which sleeps 4 to 6 people comfortably. Close by are the lagoons which we spent many days swimming and having evening dinners watching the Sunset. The Paradise Cove Lau is also close by. You are also away from the crowds of Waikiki but yet close enough to visit different areas of the island. Most of all Dan was a terrific person to work with over the phone and via e-mails answering all of our questions. Thanks again Dan for sharing your family’s home. Dave Marlatt

This villa was occupied by my family while we stayed next door. It was just as nice as the villa #7, and the next to each other location added much convenience for our family to coordinate our activities during the time we stayed there.

We had a wonderful time. The villa is a very short drive from the Ko Olina lagoons, nicely equipped and close to a shopping center (Safeway, Kmart, LongsDrugs, Pizza Hut, etc.) Spend a couple of hours in the morning at the lagoons, take 30-60 minutes drive to some of the other major attractions (the kids would use the time to take a nap), come back to the lagoons for another splash in the afternoon and enjoy the life.

Our family rented units 6 and 7. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Ko Olina. The location, amenities, and the cleanliness of the two side-by-side units was perfect for our family. I really appreciated Dan's assistance with maps, background information and his follow up calls to make sure everything was ok. I would highly recommend both units.

Villa is beyond my expectation. Perfect for 4 - 6 guestsl; we had a great great time snokeling, and hanging out in the lagoons (1 through 4), and the pool. Very safe for my kids to go to the pool (about 20 feet or so away from the villa). Quiet area, away from WAIKIKI crowd, but yet close enough to drive when chose to (20 min or so). Details such as ample supply of beach towels, towel sets, cooking utensils, laundry detergents, etc. Dan is very easy to work with and very trustworthy, we are coming back again ...

I highly recommend this place. Like what the other guests have stated, the Villa was a wonderful place to stay in. It really beats staying at a hotel. Far enough from the city lights and noise of Waikiki to get some peaceful time with family and friends. But conviniently located to drive to both North and South Shore if you are looking for some action. If you ever wanted to view and take that picture perfect Sunset with a love one; this is the place you want to be. If you want space while you get that tan, there are four lagoons you can choose from. Great place for walks, jogging, etc. Pool and jacuzzi is about 20 feet away from the Villa where you can actually bar-b-que as well. The best Luau show in town is here (Paradise Cove). All in all my family had a great stay and so we would definitely rent from Dan again. Eric

Our stay at the Gunadi’s Villa in KoOlina was perfect … the highlight of our 18 day/3 island vacation! As the other Guests have written, the location and accommodations are flawless and beyond expectation. This was our first visit to Hawaii … the Gunadi’s extended the warmest “Aloha Spirit” throughout the rental transaction - professionalism and thoroughness in covering every detail - assuring a memorable stay.

My family really enjoyed staying at this wonderful vacation home. Having traveled to the island of Oahu several times before I'd have to say this was by far the best experience we've had. The Ko'olina lagoons, pools, bbq's and parks were absolutely gorgeous. The condo was spacious and immaculate, the atmosphere was calm and inviting, the amenities were better than expected. I would definitely recommend staying at this property, I know my family we'll be coming back! Mahalo for sharing your home with us.
