Great condo, well appointed, fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in this condo a couple of times, and absolutely love it. It has a great first floor (or ground floor if, like us, you're from the UK!) location that the kids can walk to the pool from. The condo itself has great facilities (up market kitchen and washer/dryer machines), plus a bunch of beach stuff too.

It's location at Ko Olina is far away from the hustle and bustle of Waikiki, yet is a great spot for hitting the North Shore beaches. Even Kailua and Lanikai are only 45 minutes away. The grocery stores (Safeway/Walmart) and restaurants (we love Chilis) of Kapolei are only 10 minutes away.

Starts Hawaii (letting agents) are a joy to work with and booking, paying, and getting checked in were really easy. The team is very communicative throughout the process, and the listing was accurate.

We would highly recommend this condo for anyone of any age, couples and families alike.

Fabulous stay at Ko Olina

  • 5 of 5

This unit turned out to be fabulous! Originally, I was reluctant to stay on the ground floor - no ocean views and I was afraid of the noise level being poolside. In fact, neither were issues - the view to the pool was lovely and we never felt the crowds or noise were a problem. At the recommendation of the rental agent, Joy Nakagawa, she advised that this is one of their most popular units due to the convenience of going directly to the pool, beach, and grill. She was absolutely correct. With the opened lanai doors, the main living space (kitchen, dining and living area) seemed expansive. It also felt very private. The convenience factor cannot be underestimated!

Also Joy and Starts International were super professional. They addressed every question and issue with attention to details and courtesy. Our greeter Patrick contacted us the moment our flight landed, and kept in touch till we checked in. He gave us a demo of all the appliances. When we had an issue with the dryer, he called maintenance and the problem was fixed in under one hour. I plan to ask for this unit on any future stays, and I would definitely look to contact Joy and the Starts International team.

Wonderful location -pool front, ground level-especially with older kids

  • 4 of 5

We stayed 8 nights and just returned a few days ago. 5 stars for the location...This was an amazing location pool front/access (kid-friendly pools), ground level. You cannot see the lagoon or ocean from this unit, but just steps away to the bar you can enjoy the views. Our girls are 12 and 14 and we felt very comfortable sitting on the lanai/patio watching them go from one pool to the jacuzzi and over to the adjacent pool and jacuzzi. When we BBQ'd at the pool in the evenings when we weren't out and about dining, they just continued to swim all around us and had such a great time meeting the other kids.

I really think that if you have kids around this age, it is the IDEAL location. We just went back and forth from condo/lanai to pool and lagoon and didn't have to do stairs or elevators. The pool is gated so even if you had young kids they still shouldn't be able to access pool without someone opening gate but it is directly in front.

The villa itself was lovely but I give it only 4 stars for a few things:

-Master bedroom bed is not great. Mattress is a bit squishy and may need to be updated.

-Wolf brand kitchen oven is high-tech but confusing- pulled out the owner's manual twice to try to figure it out. Peter, who checked us into unit, warned us it took a long time to heat up and while that was VERY true, it was also not your basic, easy oven to figure out.

-Dryer- we had problems in this dept. Peter sent a maintenance man out quickly to help but never really resolved the problem. He said that the stacked washer/dryer units are not very efficient, especially when they are on at the same time. However, even when we only worked the dryer, towels and stuff took a LONNNNGGG time to dry. Peter sent the housecleaning service out with new towels for us because it was taking so long. We appreciated his quick responses and help with this matter.

-Light switches- very confusing but pretty much figured it out by the end of the trip.

-AC controls- preset to go back up to set temp at midnight so we would find ourselves waking up due to temp going up in room once AC automatically shut off. Then we'd just have to reset it again.

Overall, great villa, exceptional location with kids and great condos with an ocean view bar steps away. Derrick our bartender was just wonderful and friendly!

The other issues are minor but should get addressed. However, we still managed to have an awesome time!!!

Thanks Peter for your help as well!

Warm Tropical Breezes sitting on the Lanai!

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing home!

I had seen pictures but nothing compared to seeing it in person.

Every morning and evening we made it a point to sit on the lanai and enjoy the fact that we were in Paradise.

It was my girlfriends first time to Hawaii, she is from France and when she told me that her bucket list was to go to Hawaii, I said lets do it!! We arrived before school let out so it was not so crowded and the beach was ours to enjoy. The man made lagoon was divine!

The apartment was spacious so we were able to enjoy it without tripping over each other. The salt water pool was directly in front of us and the beach was a 1 minute walk.

The only thing that kept us confused the whole time were the light switches. We played around with them until they did what we wanted....LOL

If you are considering renting this home, you will not be disappointed.


Thank you for sharing your beautiful, peaceful home.
