About the Property
3-bedroom/ 2-bath Ground floor Condo, Unforgettable Ocean Views in Ko Olina.
Exception: Nightly rate of $250 applies if our unit should be available closer to the rental date.
Built in 2002, Kai Lani is a quiet gated community with a lush tropical landscape. It is located in Ko Olina, a 640 acre ocean-front resort on West Oahu, the dry leeward side of the island (averages 53 days of rain). The name 'Place of Joy' aptly describes the puffy-cloud, blue-sky days, palm trees kissed by the sun, and the aloha spirit. In 2011, Disney opened the doors of its Aulani Hotel. The Four Seasons Resort Oahu has followed suit and is slated to take over the JW Marriott Ihilani in December of 2015.
All the luxuries of an upscale ocean property await our guests. The nine-foot ceilings and open concept of our 1320 square foot condo create a feeling of spaciousness. We have 3 bedrooms: one king bed, one queen bed, and two twin beds that can be converted to a king if requested. Ceiling fans cool each bedroom and the living area, though some guests prefer to run the air conditioning on balmy days. Our condo features two bathrooms: a master bath with walk-in shower and a guest bath with tub-shower combination. This clean, comfortable unit is furnished in a tropical coastal style, boasting a fully-stocked kitchen. Barbecue on the gas grill at the community pool and take a refreshing dip in the heated pool located a few minutes from our door. Follow up with a soak in the adjacent hot tub. Swim with the turtles at the Paradise Cove beach, only two blocks away. View the spectacular sunset at Milo Cove, a secluded beach only a three-minute walk from our lanai. Spot an occasional Hawaiian monk seal or gentle sea turtle that has decided to sun itself on the rocks. Life doesn't get any better than this!
Interested in a day trip? Drive to the North Shore to watch the surfers ride the waves. Stop for lunch at a local shrimp farm for fresh mouth-watering shrimp. Located less than a mile from H1, our convenient location provides easy access to the airport, Honolulu, or the Waianae coast. Enjoy the best Oahu has to offer and return to relax in a place of joy, our condo in Ko Olina.

About the owner: My husband and I are both retired, having lived and worked in the Chicago area our entire lives. An electrical contractor, he owned and ran a small business, while I taught English to high school students. We also dabbled in buying rental properties. As for recreation, he loves to hunt and I love to photograph. We keep busy with our family: two daughters, two sons, and nine grandchildren from toddler to teen.
Why the Owner Chose Kapolei, HI, USA:
We had vacationed in Ko Olina as timeshare owners for over 10 years. Our timeshares treated us well during January and early February, providing us a 6-week reprieve from below zero temperatures, ice, and snow. As owners we were treated like royalty at Marriott Ko Olina Beach Club. We enjoyed the beautiful grounds, the lush swimming pools, amazing lagoons, and the 3-mile path along the ocean. We fell so in love with the area that we set out to purchase a condo in Ko Olina. We decided on Kai Lani Estates, the only low-density Ko Olina condos with ocean views. In 2011 Ko Olina was a seller's market, so we made an offer on this property based on photographs provided by our realtor. Having owned and rehabbed properties in the Midwest, we were not new to real estate investments. But this purchase took a leap of faith, a risk that neither of us have regretted. In fact, my husband threatens to tie himself to a palm tree when it's time to fly back to the mainland! Our grandchildren have fallen in love too. They especially enjoy spending the day at the best swimming beach in Ko Olina, the beach at Paradise Cove, known as Turtle Beach. Every day, gentle lumbering turtles swim there. We love to share our Place of Joy with friends and family.
The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
I have dreamed of a waterfront view. While working, we had purchased rental properties in New Buffalo, Michigan, but property on Lake Michigan was beyond our reach. A cozy cottage next to a stream and a block from the marina was the closest we came. Kai Lani has satisfied a life-long dream for me. As a former boater and fisherman, my husband has loved the water too. The ocean restores us.
