I don't know about other people, but when I am going to a destination like HI, I want to spend my time and money GOING AND DOING HI. Not staying in a hotel or condo. The resorts are nice, but I don't plan to spend much time in one. This is the perfect combo of location, (right across the street from a grocery store and centrally located on the East coast) beach access, nice amenities (washer/dryer, full kitchen, and access to 2 pools). If you're smart and looking to get the most bang for your vacation buck, this is the place to stay.
The owners were VERY responsive to questions and had info to make the stay better.
