"We took our son and his wife, and our daughter and her guy to Oahu and found this condo early on. The more we read about it, the better it looked so we booked it, we are glad we did! Since there were three adult couples in our group, the 3br 3 bath villa was perfect for us.
As far as the villa itself, the appointments and amenities are incredible. The kitchen is spacious and very well done with professional grade appliances, granite counter tops, and a wine cooler. There was a very nice dining table with six chairs, although we were always drawn for meals to the lanai (more on that later.)
The living area featured a large flat screen TV with cable and DVD player, with a slightly smaller one across the room in the dining area. There was ample comfortable seating, and a collection of DVDs, board games, and toys in the TV cabinet. The high speed internet featured a WiFi router (password on the underside) and there was a printer with USB cable attached (not a WiFi capable printer though, so you'll need a USB port to use it.
There are essentially three master suites, two with king beds and the third with two California twins that can be pushed together to make a king. One of the bedrooms is the primary master, with direct access to the lanai and a luxurious en suite bath with deep soaking tub. Each bedroom had a nice flat screen TV. There was a large stack of very nice beach towels in one bedroom, which we distributed among all the inhabitants with plenty to go around.
A hall closet is a treasure trove of snorkeling equipment (masks, fins, and snorkels), beach chairs, boogie boards, and beach toys. The ironing board and iron are also located here. The laundry pair is a stacked unit in another hall closet, and features a high-efficiency front load washer.
THE LANAI! Very spacious with a table that seats 4 and a smaller table and two more chairs outside the master suite that we pulled over to seat 6. This was where we had breakfast together every morning, watching the daily koi feeding from our fabulous view of the pool area and the ocean. Most dinners were had there too.
The beach is the best of any in the area, and good snorkeling could be had right off shore. The pools and the grounds are first rate, with soft Hawaiian music from hidden speakers. Live entertainment Friday night was great. We found the luxurious fitness center on a par with most commercial gyms, with saunas in the locker rooms.
There is ample shopping nearby."
