We just completed our trip and the rental of this unit was certainly one of the highlights. For context, we are a family of 5 with 3 kids 17-20.
Let me start with the condo itself. It was excellent. Very well appointed with high-end appliances, nice furniture, great beds and everything you could need was there. Every possible kitchen appliance and utensil we thought about was there, which was great as we did a lot of our own cooking. Flat screens in each room, Xbox for the kids, plenty of board games, extra towels and bedding, it was all there. The unit was also immaculately clean and well maintained. In addition, it is fully stocked with all you need for the days at the beach – chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards, cooler, beach towels and even a cart to carry it all. Made spending time at the lagoon beach easy and turn-key. Three bedrooms and three bathrooms meant everyone had space and privacy as well. The view from the kitchen, master and lanai is absolutely amazing, made even better with retractable shades and doors that open up the entire room. Perfect for that morning coffee or a drink and watching the sunset at night.
We were not looking for an overly commercial vacation, so the Beach Villas we perfect. There are hotel resorts (Four Seasons, Disney and Marriott) within a 5 minute walk for restaurants, bars, coffee shops but it was nice to have the lagoon essentially to ourselves without all the beach sales and rentals. Made Lagoon 2 quiet and more relaxing than its neighbors. While we did not utilize the pools, there are two nice pools, hot tub and a pool bar as well. All was well maintained and cleaned each morning.
The location in Ko Olina was also great. Only about 45 minutes depending on traffic from Waikiki and the North Shore for day trips but for a low-key relaxing time, we just stayed in Ko Olina some days. Quick walk to the shops and restaurants as we as to the Marina where we went for snorkeling and sunset cruises. Also, right across the street from the golf course.
The rental process and service were also excellent. The intro letter provided details and suggestions on everything and they were quick to follow-up on questions or requests we had.
This was a 5 Start rental, highly recommended and we will be coming back!
