Short walk to the beach
Amazing place to stay with everything in short walking distance. I highly recommend this property.
Highly recommend!! It was perfect for our honeymoon.
the property was accurately described and had everything we needed. It's one of the closest properties to the beach and the walk is about 5-10 minutes depending on how leisurely you want to walk. You can also ask the front desk to send over a golf cart if you'd like to get a quick lift instead. Note that the service closes at 5/5:30 (whenever the front office closes).
The cabanas that you have access to have towel/beach chair service that you rent out via a sign in sheet with your room number. Very hassle free and you can drop off the towels outside the door if it's past the hours they're there.
The actual property:
You can park on the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd levels. Parking may be limited if you come home super late from where you are at, but I only had issues with parking 1 out of the 5 days I was there. The check in was very easy. The check-in person was extremely friendly and personable. Our room was clean and inviting and had pretty much everything we needed. The A/C worked well, and the fans in the room were nice to use as well. The patio in the back let's you chill in the nice Hawaii weather without being in direct sun.
The pull-out couch was a little springy, but you're actually sleeping on a mattress topper that helps. I never woke up sore from using it or anything. The actual bed is very comfortable with a lot of pillows so you really get to have your choice. There isn't a very thick blanket that is on the bed when you get in, but there are thicker blankets in the closet in the restroom for you to use, as wel as additional sheets.
The restroom was clean and you get hot water almost immediately. At one point, our shower did stop working, but a quick conversation with the service department and they had someone come over to fix it in the same day.
I'm not 100% sure if this property was one of the more newly renovated rooms in the area, but there were renovations being done in other rooms in close proximity, and other rooms that we went to with our friends were very modern. But that shouldn't take away from the fact that the rooom had everything we needed and was still very nice and clean.
10/10 would recommend this property and this room specifically.
We appreciated there were some renovations but it is a stretch to say top to bottom. Good things were new cabinets in kitchen and bathroom area and quite nice furnishings. Loved the new ceiling fans too. Bed was comfortable but had a thick topper so suspect the bed is old. Disappointed in the condition of the bathtub and faucets, the swollen baseboards near the tub, the interior doors and door handles have seen far better days, the sliding glass doors and screens are old, stiff and should be replaced. The curtains were frankly quite disgusting on the outside. The dishwasher had a lot of rusted off prongs, one is laying in the bottom of the dishwasher. The fridge and stove were old but clean. One broken vegetable drawer in fridge. The kitchen wasn't too badly equipped but very limited counter space for cooking. The floors in the kitchen and bathroom have not been upgraded and the grout lines look quite stained. Finally, more attention to cleaning of door tracks in the closet and cleaning of the closet floors is required. The cooler had left over mouldy bits in it. Overall it was acceptable but there were 4 couples renting here and all paying the same price. 2 of the suites were actually fully renovated with some ocean view and one renovation was truly "top to bottom". Of the 4 suites I would rank ours as 4. Sorry if this sounds pretty negative but I think the advertising is overselling the quality and extent of the renovations and that should be corrected at the very least.
Beautiful, quiet location with everythin you need!
Beautifully furnished condo with evertything you need to feel at home. Short walk to the ocean, Black Rock, the Whalers Village and more....
