                                                                        Janel W.Minneapolis, Minnesota

                                                                        The condo had plenty of room for the 6 of us. Perfect location and view. The condo was very worn, disappointed in the condition and cleanliness. For the price I expecred more.

                                                                        Owner's Response:

                                                                        Thank you for your review. We are new owners of the unit and know that updating was necessary. We were a little surprised with the cleanliness issue. Please give us specifics and we will pass on to our on-site management company, Whalers Realty Management. We have not experienced that concern in the past. We wished you would have brought that up during your stay and they could have corrected the situation. As far as the price issue, having 6 adult guests staying in one unit, sharing the price, does not sound unreasonable. This is the best and most expensive location on Kaanapali Beach. You will be pleased to know that we are in the process of doing a total remodel of the unit. This includes all new louvered Sapele cabinets, granite counter tops, appliances, doors, coffered ceilings, lighting, Fleetwood sliding doors and all new furniture. We want to make sure our guest have a great experience, thus we will offer you a 10% discount on your next stay.

                                                                        We had such an amazing family trip staying in 252.

                                                                        Julie M.

                                                                        Owner's Response:

We woke up the next morning with a beautiful view of Black Rock from our bed. The view from the rest of the unit and from the lanai got even better. The Islands of Lanai and Molokai were right in front. It was a 5-minute walk to Whaler’s Village where we had lunch and shopped a couple of times. All dinners were enjoyed on the huge lanai. Interior of the unit was very spacious with 2 bedrooms. The kitchen was well equipped

We have rented other units in this development, but never an Oceanfront unit. There is truly a major difference in being able to view all the Islands and Black Rock. There was a view in every room. The best part was the huge lanai where we spent a lot of our time. Interior was furnished very tastefully and everything we needed was supplied.

                                                                        BEST LOCATION EVER

The views of the Ocean and the other Islands are spectacular. Staying in a 2 bedroom was very helpful now that the kids are older. The lanai was the largest we have ever seen. It makes
