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 followed suit and took 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 Vicki Cobb
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.
Vicki Cobb purchased this Townhome in 2012
Why Vicki Cobb chose Kapolei
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.
What makes this Townhome unique
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.

Love Staying Here!
Mrs. Vicki's home is absolutely wonderful! It is in a gated community, right on the beach, and centrally located! I utilize her home as much as possible for when we travel to Hawaii. She is the most amazing host and very responsive and attentive to all your needs. Her home is beautiful and perfect for business, family or a romantic retreat. I definitely recommend her home to those who are looking for a peaceful getaway!
A wonderful and memorable experience!
This year, we decided to have a longer vacation in Hawaii. We had been to the Koolina area many times before, but our stay this time has been one of the best family vacations, thus far. The unit was clean, spacious, nicely decorated, and luxurious. Everything we needed and more was provided. The fully stocked and full sized kitchen made cooking at home an ease. There is also something to be said about having a nice laundry unit for washing. The view was breathtaking from inside the unit and on the lanai during breakfast and sunsets. The grounds were beautifully maintained and the whole resort area was gorgeous. We were located near the small beach as well as walking distance to the lagoons and resort marketplace. Kapolei was just minutes away with a new mall, many restaurants and shopping, including an organic store, Costco and Target nearby. We went daily for walks or runs early in the morning along the lagoons and on 2 occasions, came across a pod of dolphins. We ended our morning walks with a leisurely coffee stop at the beautiful Four Seasons or at the Honolulu Coffee Co. We also enjoyed going for burgers (they have a bunless option, which was delish) and shakes and hung out after dinner at the Four Seasons and lagoons. We went swimming almost daily at the small beach, lagoons or the fun community pool. The Paradise Cove beach is great and safe for families with littles. We saw a Moray Eel hiding in the rocks and turtles at the rocky lagoon next to Paradise Cove. Each time we went to the beach, we saw or swam with turtles, which were amazing experiences! The sunsets were spectacular from where we were located! Our stay was long enough to have plenty of time to relax and also explore the island. One of our favorite excursions was a drive to Kailua beach, which I think is one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. We also took a sailboat ride off of Waikiki, which was another highlight of our trip. The Northshore was located just 30 minutes to the shrimp trucks and Turtle beach.
I can't say enough about how wonderful this place and our vacation was. Vicki was a pleasure to communicate with. She was lovely in all of our conversations as she truly desired for us to have a wonderful vacation without any glitch and she delivered. Vicki, your place was truly a place of joy and felt like a dream home away from home. Thank you for allowing us to enjoy your gorgeous place. We hope to be back in the next years to come.
I would say that we would agree with all the other reviews posted.
Our month long stay in the summer had a great view with easy access to the open water swimming in the pacific ocean. For those comfortable, the snorkeling and interaction with pods of dolphins and incredible sea life is amazing.
Definitely having ample amenities of your own kitchen, washer/dryer, beach access, and 3 bedrooms with OCEAN VIEW is unrivaled by other offerings.
Vicki was very warm, friendly, and accessible for any needs or requests.
The only drawback is that when sitting out on the patio, a minimal amount of road noise can be heard. Keep in mind, nothing comes close to the overall experience and value for Ko' Olina with ocean views.
Beautiful condo in paradise
We had visited Kai Lani in 2014 and knew we wanted to come back. This time we needed a 3 bedroom condo that would sleep 7 and Vicki was very willing to work with us. We made so many wonderful memories.
The condo is very clean and has everything you need. We enjoyed the lagoons and the restaurants. Our
favorite beach was at Paradise Cove where we snorkeled with turtles and even had a monk seal swim in to lie on the beach in the sun. At sunset we would walk to the small beach in front of the condo and enjoy
This is truly a piece of paradise and the condo will not disappoint you. Short drive to attractions and a beautiful place to call home. We have told our friends and would definitely stay here again.
Vicki is a very special lady and does everything to make your stay amazing.
This is the definition of paradise!
The owners have thought of everything to make their home yours during your visit!
It's hard to leave and we will be back to this most unbelievable community in paradise!
The Kindest Host!
I have rented Ms. Vicki's home on two separate occasions and she was nothing but a delight to work with. The home is in a beautiful location and provides all the comforts of home. Truly a magnificent place to stay and i would highly recommend this property to anyone.
