About Wally Woo
My wife and I Live in Oakland, CA overlooking San Francisco Bay
Wally Woo purchased this Villa in 2008
Why Wally Woo chose Kapolei
This property is the first villa style property in 40 years to be located on the beach that's not a hotel type facility It is very much less populated then Waikiki or other public beaches because there is NO street parking so people visiting is limited by the limited parking spaces This property is also gated so the security is excellent The four lagoons are totally protected so swimming and snorkeling is very safe and contains almost as much fish and turtle as Hanauma Bay Yet if one wants the services of a city like hospitals and movie theaters etc and even the Waikiki scene, it's only minutes away
What makes this Villa unique
The Ko Olina Beach Villas is located in the far western end of Oahu, opposite from the Waiikiki Beach crowded scene yey can get there agouit 45 minutes away. The KoOlina Resort is a secluded 5 star filled resort area with four luxory resorts including the Aulani, the latest Disney resort The master developer wanted to create a secluded, limited exclusive part of Oahu that is like staying in outer islands like Maui or Kauai yet be minutes from the city of Honolulu, Waikiki Beach and the North Shore

Very spacious clean deluxe accommodations . Lynn was great with check in and all other communications . “Quiet pool” , kids pool, lagoon, fitness center, koi pond , all well kept , never crowded . One thing I would suggest to the owner is to upgrade the beach chairs, umbrella, cooler and beach towels. Overall our family had a wonderful vacation .
Our trip to Oahu
Our first vacation to Hawaii, the location and surrounding area was perfect, a great place to base an Oahu visit from. The whole complex was as expected, very good quality.
The condo had everything, it was fully equipped to a high standard, large in size, beach equipment, easy access on 2nd floor, it was perfect for our family of 4.
For full transparency, some furniture/walls showed ware and the ocean was barely visible from the balcony, but overall it’s a fantastic property.
Relax and Revive Family Fun
Ko'Olina is a beautiful resort area with access to two pools and a lagoon, which was perfect for my niece and nephews. In the lagoon, we were able to do some "light" snorkeling.
There is a small shopping area, coffee shop, and restaurants within walking distance. Target and Costco are only 10-15 minutes away by car. I personally preferred staying in this quiet area and driving to some of the major sites (Waikiki, Pearl Harbor, etc.); without traffic, almost anything on the island can be reached within an hour.
The condo itself had all the necessary amenities, including laundry (soap included), beach towels, beach chairs, dishes, spices, kitchen appliances and more. The futon couch seemed to be a more comfortable alternative to a traditional sofa bed--used by my 9-year-old niece one night.
The lanai has a peek-a-boo view of the ocean and looks out toward Aulani over a field of grass. I would have preferred more lounge furniture on the lanai (currently there is one chaise lounge and a large glass dining table and chairs)--that's simply a personal preference based on how you plan to use the space. Bathrooms were spacious, clean, and nicely designed. My sister rented a different unit at Ko'Olina; the fixtures were the same, the only difference being the furniture and decor.
Each room is allotted 4 room keys that are required to get into the buildings and up to your specific floor--very secure, but made visiting my sister's condo a little challenging. There is a gym onsite, a lane for lap swimming in the "quiet" pool, and the staff is very friendly.
Wally, the owner, was very helpful and accommodating when it came to changing our reservation, which I greatly appreciated.
Overall, we all enjoyed our stay with all of the available amenities and excursions. Ko'Olina is a great place for families--including aunts (or uncles) who sometimes wander down to the tiki bar or lie by the pool with a book. =)
