"We just returned from a ten-day vacation in Hawaii and enjoyed staying at Lehua. It was in the perfect location to base out of while we did day jaunts to town (Honolulu/Waikiki) or North Shore areas.
It's an older house in Ewa Beach - and honestly, the neighborhood looks a wee bit sketchy - but there's a fence on the property and not once did I feel uncomfortable. I read one review of the house getting broken into so we were just cautious and took our electronics with us and locked the house when we left.
There are two bedrooms with A/C and the third is really a room off the living room with two twin beds - no AC and not a private room. There were three fans so my daughter and her fiance slept in that room with all three fans going. Because of the effects from the hurricanes, the weather is HUMID. So other than the two bedrooms, the house was HOT. But that's not a reflection on the house - just residual from the weather.
- Great communication with Rick on booking the house
- Ocean front. Nothing else to say! Okay, so the sand has eroded and there's just rocks but the backyard is OCEAN FRONT. So nice having a cup of coffee in the morning, watching the sun rise over Honolulu and enjoying the spray.
- Fully stocked kitchen. Not food-wise but plenty of dishes, cookware and the like.
- Plenty of towels - both beach and regular towels.
- Washer and dryer - to wash all those towels after daily excursions to the beach.
- A few items like beach chairs, boogie boards, snorkels, beach umbrella (though it was broken when we opened it)
- Gated yard.
- BBQ grill (though we didn't use it)
- No real third bedroom
- No A/C in the house
- Sketchy neighborhood
Because my ohana is from Hawaii and my father and brother (and his family) still live there, Rick approved us having a small family gathering. My brother, his wife, two sons, daughter in law, and two grandkids along with my dad got together for the most enjoyable evening ever! Though my brother and his family were roasting in the heat - apparently they live central Oahu in Wahiawa where it's cooler, lol.
There is a neighborhood dog who visited us a couple of times and I suspect he is the one who left us presents on the grass in the morning, but as I was missing my two pups back home, I didn't mind picking it up. Just FYI for others who will stay at Lehua.
Mahalo, Rick (and Danielle and Kim). We will be back and will hope to stay at Lehua again."

"We had a fabulous stay in this unit at Ko Olina Beach Villas resort. Having a ground floor unit makes the pool and beach very easily accessible. Having stayed at the ocean tower before, we found this unit so much better. The kids can play on the grassy area just outside the lanai and you don't have to worry about waiting for elevators. The unit is kept very clean, the beds are comfortable and everything you need to spend a week in paradise is found in the apartment. The owner is very pleasant to deal with and very quick to respond to any questions. So the booking goes very smoothly. We can't wait to come back and will definitely recommend to friends!"

"If you're looking for a quiet vacation away from the hustle and bustle of the busy city, this is the place for you! There are so many beautiful beaches close by that barely have more than 10 people on them!
The house itself has no immediate access to beach, however a cute little cove is a 2 min walk away. Other quiet/beautiful beaches are no more than a 10min drive away.
The house fit 7 adults comfortably with room for more!
Laundry, 2 bathrooms, a fully stocked kitchen was great!
No air conditioning, but we spent most of our time at home on the lanai which is very breezy. Fans in each room with the windows open made for a comfortable sleep.
You can count on approx 60 min travel time from the house to Waikiki, North shore, and the east coast. We suggest renting a car for your entire stay.
Such a lovely alternative to the typical Waikiki vacation. We would definitely stay here again."

"We had such an amazing time staying at this property! The villa was so beautiful and really well appointed! They have thought of everything that you might need down to a cooler, snorkeling gear, sand toys and ice packs. Any issue that we had was attended to right away. Daniel was always on top of everything. We loved staying here so much and staying in Ko'Olina so much that we extended our stay for 2 more weeks! Had we been able to stay in the same villa, we would have in a heart beat and we will not be shy about trying to come back to the same villa. The one we switched to was not taken care of as well and the management/ownership seemed really sketchy when we had some issues. The resort was also beautiful and just wonderful for our vacation with our three young children. Thank you, Daniel, for everything. Mahalo!"
