"We really enjoyed our two weeks in this unit. We have stayed at this condo location many times over the past 15 years, in a variety of units.
We love the layout of the complex; its garden area, with water features, plants and flowers, the fresh water pool in the middle of the courtyard, the cabana/BBQ area, second pool, and man-made sand beach on the "dry" side of the seawall. Over the years, upgrades have been made and this is still one of the best condo complexes on the Island.
First time we stayed on the third floor, and we got a lot of additional exercise using the stairs (there's an elevator on the same level just steps from our condo entrance).
There was a change in ownership after we booked the condo, but there were no problems in the transition. In fact, the property manager (Lori) for the new owner met us at the unit the night we arrived. She provided a tour and answered questions, and made us feel very welcome.
The unit was very nice and clean. The bed was very comfortable, the bathroom was larger than most, with two entrances (from the bedroom & hallway). All the appliances worked, including the clothes washer & dryer. There was a minor problem with the living room TV remote control, but that should be resolved by now. Plenty of towels, and many other extras in the unit, but some small beach chairs & coolers would be nice additions.
While we adapted, an upgrade to the furniture would be a plus.
From the third floor lanai there is more than a partial view of the ocean, as well as Hualalai Mountain, plus a great view of the courtyard's garden area. This lanai also adds additional private living space, that a ground floor unit does not.
The Casa is just a little over a mile from town, a nice early morning walk for coffee and/or breakfast.
All in all, we would rate this condo a 4.7 or 4.8 out of 5.0, and would look to stay in this condo again."
