  • Peaceful and lovely, no worries

    "Lisa is an A+ owner, very reliable and professional to work with. She sent us detailed information about the unit, directions and even a map of the property before we arrived. The unit is beautiful and the interior design is perfect and comfortable. I think the king sized bed was one of the most comfortable I have slept on. Everything is high end, even the dishes and the beach chairs. We appreciated the beach towels, cooler and water noodles. It's easy to rent snorkel equipment at the hut near the main pool, and the snorkeling at the resort's beach (shared with St. Regis) is pretty good. The resort is great, every friendly with the aloha spirit, shuttles to parking lot 24/7, plenty of parking, no worries. It will be even nicer when the bar and restaurant are up and running again. We hope to be back! Mahalo, Lisa!"

  • Could not expect more!

    "This was our first experience with a vacation rental & our first time to the Garden Isle. The Mannings could not have made our vacation any easier or pleasant. They are SO informative & accommodating, just wonderful people. They answered any & all "rookie traveler" questions fully and completely. They provided us with a welcome packet that had a wealth of information for dining, entertainment, sight seeing, maps, coupons, tours, etc... The Waipouli Beach resort is absolutely gorgeous. It is well maintained and spotlessly clean anywhere you look. The pool complex and grounds are also impeccably maintained. The beach was so beautiful and about a 2 minute stroll from our room. I sat on the beach every morning with a fresh cup of coffee and watched the sun rise on the horizon. Truly an awe inspiring daily event. The condo itself was equally beautiful and spotless. I felt like we were the first guests that had ever stayed there. I could not believe the items that are there. You could literally go there for a month, with nothing but clothing and food, and never want or need anything else. The kitchen has anything and everything you could possibly think of. Coffee bean grinder, got it. Waffle iron, got it. Knife sharpener, got it. Scotch tape, got it. Flash light with extra batteries, got it. Dishware, flatware, pots, pans, bowls, lids, wine glasses, martini glasses, if you needed anything it was right there. All the appliances are high end gourmet quality, and fully functional. The decorations and appointments are also beautiful. All the furniture was comfortable and clean. I slept as well as I do at home, and that typically doesn't happen. Three flat screen televisions, DVD player with assorted DVD's, Wii console with controllers and games, board games, books, magazines. I'm telling the truth, if you can think of it, it's already there!! I will close by restating. The Mannings, the resort, the condo, and the whole experience, can only be described as professional, polite, helpful, beautiful, and an overall fantastic time. Mahalo, Mahalo, Mahalo."
