Recent Ko Olina reviews

  • Hawaii is Magical !!

    "Ok, where to begin. This vacation was booked last minute. The easy part was getting the flights, it was the 'other stuff' that was stressing me out. We knew we wanted Oahu, traveling with 4 young boys we wanted to land and stay put. Oahu also offered loads of activities. We chose Ko Olina (Turtle Bay was also in the running). My neighbor books Disney vacations so she immediately reserved a suite for us at Aulani. After reading a bazillion reviews we decided to research other options as I am not a huge Disney fan and it was crazy expensive for a familyof 6 for 10 nights. This was our first time with VRBO and it was perfect. I had to contact Michelle with a few questions and she was very prompt with responses and answered all my questions. This was hugely helpful because I was on a serious time constraint. So. We landed, rented a minivan (whoop whoop) and drove to the resort. Just beautiful. Perfect size, not some ridulous high rise. The property manager greeted us and gave us the cards and went through everything and off he went. Weirdly enough, he lived in our town for many years before moving to HI...his children went to the same elementary school as mine are at now. What?? North Hampton, NH, if you're interested. Condo had everything. Well, except a wine opener!! But we managed. If I want to get super picky....the lights in the hall didn't work and we were missing cover sheets on two of the beds. But that's it. I called the property manager 3 times for questions but he never returned my call. Not sure why but really, it was no big deal. I also wanted to make sure I knew how to leave the condo even though we pay for a cleaning service. We had a magical vaca. I'm not a spa mom or sun bathing mom and with a gaggle of boys, one can't be. Hiking was incredible, especially Koko Head Trail. Not long, not too difficult, just amazing. Manoa Falls is also recommended. Snorkeling in the cove was fabulous, everyday! Paradise Cove Luau was touristy, wouldn't totally advise. My boys loved it though, but my hubby and I, not so much. But I highly highly think ClimbWorks zip lining was the BEST. A splurge but worth every penny. Every turn we took when driving revealed another gorgeous beach and scenery. We explored every inch of the island. Honolulu traffic does suck. All reviews were spot on. Also....the Villas pool is fantastic. They even offer a sweet adult lap pool which kicks butt for those who swim. Villas are not crowded which was the best. Boom."

  • Amazing View!

    "The best part of this place is the amazing view. The quality of the unit was very nice. There were some things that could be improved. The dishes and cook ware had water stains and are in need of replacement. The TV's and multimedia electronics are a bit dated. The biggest issue we had was beach access. Our unit is in the best spot on the property, however to access the beach is a walk. You have to walk all the way back to the main lobby, then walk all the way through the pool area, just to access the beach. The unit was very nice and quiet and the view was spectacular."

  • First time visitor to Hawaii

    "We had a wonderful stay at this villa in Ko Olina hillside. The villa was extremely comfortable as it's well equipped with high quality appliances, TV and Internet access. The villa is located in a quiet and pleasant location and it was the perfect base for us to enjoy some great days on the beach in the nearby lagoons, and then to explore the rest of Oahu by car. At the end of long sightseeing days, we also enjoyed a splash in the open air pool located next to the villa and a restful dip in the hot tub, which are very well maintained and where it's also possible to have a BBQ. We stocked up in food at the local market, which was very conveniently located close to the beaches and could be reached on foot from the villa, and enjoyed a great Christmas meal at a local Hawaiian restaurant, which offers wicked Mai Tais! My family and I spent New Year's Eve at Paradise Cove for a great Luau, and then enjoyed a world class firework display at one of the lagoons. No need to take a cab to return to the villa, as everything is at walking distance in Ko Olina! This was definitely the ideal accomodation for our stay in Oahu."

  • Perfect in every way!

    "We stayed at Susie's absolutely lovely property for one week. I am normally too lazy to write reviews, and have never written one before, but I felt compelled to write one in case anyone is considering this place for their vacation. Simply put, it is perfect. Perfect for adults, toddlers, and grandparents. We were an extended family of two adults, grandparents and two kids under the age of 6, but EVERYONE had fun and enjoyed themselves. The management company (and Louie) was very helpful and nice, the pools were perfect for the kids, and the beach was only a short walk away. I got the impression that the Beach Tower Villas were more expensive due to their proximity to the beach, but honestly, the Ocean Tower Villas were probably just an additional 15 second walk. The villa was convenient, parking was spacious, we were near restaurants in case we got lazy to cook, but there is also Safeway and Costco within a 15 minute drive, and a smaller supermarket just a few minutes walk. Not to mention a beautiful golf course across the street. There was something for everyone. Also, the villa was equipped with beach/pool chairs, toys, etc., so don't waste room in your luggage packing beach gear. Finally, to save the best for last, the view!! We ate out on the balcony (I think they call it a lanai) every day and also just sat there, because the view, air, stars were amazing. It is not often that I want to return to a place more than once because I think it is better to go some place new each time for a vacation, but I hope to come back again and again. Thank you, Susie!"
