Hawaii Vacation: The Resort

Things have been crazy busy since we got home from our trip last month. We have been in baby prep mode and work mania since Hawaii.

Anyway, we had an amazing vacation at an amazing resort and I just wanted to share our experience will you all. We brought Dom’s parents along for the week long trip to Ko Olina, which is on the West Coast of Oahu. We stayed at the Marriott Vacation Club and enjoyed each and every minute. Here is a brief overview of the resort. resort_01

The villas sit at the end of a row of coves on the south west side of Oahu. The Marriott is 2 coves away from the Disney Resort, Aulani. Each resort has their own private cove that you can swim in.resort_04

Domenic pretty much lived in the cove whenever we were hanging out at the resort. As you can see, the water is beautiful and clear. We had many warm, relaxing days on the sand looking out onto the ocean.






The resort had many great features including a general store, koi fish ponds, bbq’s, 3 pools, a fitness center, spa services, 2 restaurants, shaved ice, and a luau. We took advantage of eating at Longboards restaurant a few times. The pulled pork and fish dishes were amazing! Apparently the mai tai’s were great too, guess I’ll find out next year!



We had perfect weather throughout our trip, except on the last day when it rained a little bit on and off as it typically does in Hawaii. We really enjoyed the resort and all of the amenities that it had to offer. It is a great place to take children of any age, there are a lot of activities for children and adults that are provided by the resort daily. They do painting, lei making, snorkeling, hula lessons, and other fun activities. Next year we will be going back and taking baby “Caspardo” with us.

Stay tuned for Pearl Harbor and North Shore posts, coming soon.
