"The condo is roomy, with a large kitchen area full of modern well working appliances. In unit washer and dryer are great, as well as the bathroom facilities being good too. The shower in the master bathroom is exceptionally nice, a large glass wall type shower that is perfect for one or two to enjoy.
These condos have large lanais (decks) and this unit has plenty of nice furniture out there to spend your time on. The lanai faces the ocean, which is pretty much blocked by trees and other condo complexes closer to the water, but you can still see the water and enjoy the sights. It's very pretty, looking out over a path which leads to the pool and then you see a well maintained golf course.
The pool is great, large enough for adults who want a little exercise to swim back and forth in, but not so big if you're watching multiple children that you feel you cant get to them to help if they need it. The hot tub is nice as well, a good size to fit 6-8 people comfortably. It did have problems one of the days of our stay and wasnt very hot, but they sent maintenance over to fix it and by the next evening it was hot again.
It's a bridge unit, so when you make a Costco run (huge double door fridge makes this possible) you can go straight across from the parking lot to the unit. My brother's family had a ground floor unit which means you have to walk up and down a flight of stairs every time. Yes, ground floor is nice, but for us we appreciated having a parking lot level unit, plus your view of the ocean and surrounding area is much better from the second floor.
Our only complaint? At least at the time of this review, the grill on the lanai, which is something we use almost daily while in Hawaii, is a small electric grill. Sized for two people, but the other issue is the cord is 6 feet long and there are no outlets on the deck, so we ended up never even using it. I like flame seared meat, not electric. My brothers unit had a large gas grill, as well as our friends who stayed next door, so when we cooked up our ahi or steaks we just used one of their grills and had dinner together. It's just something to be aware of, and if this matters to you, check with the owner before booking, it may very well be updated to a gas grill by the time you're reading this.
Gayle was good to deal with before the visit and during, that was a nice plus. Our family of 4, two adults and two children, would HAPPILY stay in this condo again."
