Here's the partial ocean view at sunrise



Here's the murphy bed and what it looks like for a 6 ft tall teenager. Lucky for him I didn't make him sleep there.



Here's my artsy photo with Mickey cookie and cup.

We were in 1077,1079...I thought it was an AWESOME VIEW as well!
Hope that you LOVED Aulani as much as we did!

Thanks, TreesyB! I think many people who book an Island View villa hope they will be as lucky as you. Many of the Island View villas in the Ewa Building Phase 3 Long Wing have very good views of the ocean.

I tried to find this in the first few posts with the great maps- but are there "poolside-gardens" rooms that do not face the pool? I don't need to see the pool (well, that would be nice, but not necessary. I did request floors 4 or 5), but do I need to worry I might get a "garden" view that faces the Marriott/4 Seasons construction?

All of the villas in the Pool/Garden View category face Waikolohe Valley, which is the home of Aulani's main pool and lazy river. There are no villas in the Pool/Garden View category that face the Four Seasons, the Wailing adult pool, or the lawn upon which the Starlit Hui is performed.

I believe Aulani uses the official designation "Pool/Garden" because some villas, especially those on the first floor, have some of their pool views partially obscured by landscaping. For example, take a look out the view from villa #170/172, which is on the first floor.
