Ko Olina & the Disney resort

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Beach Villa Realty,LLC

How time flies when you're having fun.

What seemed a distant event is now in the 30 day countdown. From the first time I heard the rumor, it was easy to believe and easy to imagine. Disney was going to build Aulani Resort and Spa in Ko Olina. She is opening August 29th and we are excited!

The Disney family is a pretty good family to have moving into our neighborhood! Not only for the investment and jobs that will be brought, but for the quality of the corporation and the people who are part of it. Now that she is ready to open, it is clear to see that they delivered on all counts.

As I have said before in this forum, Ko Olina is a beautiful place and The Aulani Resort and Spa that Disney has created speaks volumes of how beautiful the area is on her own merits. The Aulani Resort and Spa is located on a crescent shaped lagoon and will be built between the Ihilani Hotel, a 5 star Marriott property and the Beach Villas  at Ko Olina which are the residential villas we own and/or manage for rent above. These are the first year round residence opportunities on any of the 4 Ko Olina Lagoons.

A wonderful beach trail connects the 4 lagoons on a mile and a half coastline trail. There are 5 other communities within the gates of Ko Olina which are Kai Lani, Coconut Plantation, Ko Olina Kai, Ko Olina Hillside and Ko Olina Fairways. Several of them are built along the perimeter of the Ko Olina Golf Course which is world class and currently Michelle Wie's home course. Lastly, there is a beautiful marina with nearly 300 slips in what is one of if not the best marinas in the State of Hawaii.

Ko Olina is officially within the city limits of Kapolei and is a neighborhood more than an independent city. I would guess that the 5 communities have over 1,500 residences between them within walking distance to the new hotel site. The school district is Kapolei and it has several new schools and bus service to them from Ko Olina. Ko Olina is about 3 miles away from the center of Ko Olina and I think you'll find the area a good place to live as well as a great place to raise a family.

More to come!
