"The Ko Olina Beach Villas is an exceptional beach side property at the Ko Olina lagoons located beside a number of high-end resorts on Oahu's west-shores near the town of Kapolei (about 30 mins drive from Waikiki). We have visited Beach Villas in the past but this is the first time I have stayed at this unit.
The property is located right beside lagoon 2, which has a spectacular beach setting. The waters are clam due to rock wall and the beach is typically crowd free. Next door Disney, Four Seasons and Marriott have separate lagoons which have a lot more visitors and the hustle and bustle of your typical beach resort. I viewed the other properties, the units available, and the amenities and I prefer the privacy and exclusiveness of Beach Villas. If you want peace and quiet, away from the crowds of Waikiki I would consider this area.
The condo is a spacious 2 bedroom, 2 bath unit with a beautiful open floor plan living room and kitchen the walks out into a patio. It is one of the best accommodations in my humble opinion of any property I have seen in Oahu in terms of location / building amenities / proximity to the beach / and price.
The property has two swimming pools, one of which I really enjoyed with my daughter who is learning how to swim. Look at the property pictures and you will see the pools and proximity to the beach.
Couple of minor complaints (but just being real picky at this point):
1. Wish the unit had Apple TV - cheap addition does wonders
2. One of the two parking spots was a bit small, not the best spot for a larger SUV
In summary, this unit is a value unit at Beach Villas (compared to the units with a better view) and is definitely a place I would recommend or stay at again. The owner easy to work with and contact."
