Did construction start on either lot next to the villa? Does any one know when it is scheduled to start?
Has Ko OLina Beach Villas decided to heat the recreational family pool?
I know there was talk about it. It is my understanding that the HOA was going to decide whether to purchase and install heating equipment to heat the pool.
My two cents: We stayed there when it was first built and the only thing about the resort that didn't meet our standards was the cold pool and we were surprised to learn that not only was it not heated, but no heating equipment was ever installed!! That is the one detail that has kept us from staying there again, we have even thought about purchasing a unit as we come back to Ko Olina every year with our kids and grandkids - but we wont come back to the villas util the pool gets some heat. I know I should toughen up, but at my age and for what I spend there, I want a nice pool, and the surrounding properties have heated pools.
Do the local buses run near the resort? How easy is it to get to Waikiki? How far away is Costco or other large grocery stores?
Confused if there is a pool that kids can swim in (age 6 and 2) . Can anyone let me know if they are alloweed to use any of the pools or is the lagoon fine?
Is there good snorkeling from the beach, or do you have to book an excursion and go elsewhere to snorkle?
