  • Vwey nice Unit

    "We enjoyed the apartment, but it was very hot in the afternoons, despite ceiling fans and other fans. Two REALLY STRONG fans would have made a big difference. Also, the wi-fi was too week for us to watch streaming films on Hulu and Netflix. Other than that, it was a very good experience. Thanks so much for your hospitality!"

  • Nice Modern Condo

    "This is a very nice, updated, modern condo in a great location right on the ocean with a "to die for" view from the lanai. The building has covered parking and a pool, although the pool and surrounding deck will be closed for renovation sometime next year (2018). The owners live a mile away, but only for 6 months of the year. They live on the mainland and/or are traveling the rest of the time, but reachable by cell phone/email. A caretaker is used when the owners are off the island, and she was very helpful during our stay. We appreciated the direct booking with the owner which saved us some money. However, there are a few negatives. Be prepared for a long list of rules, including doing some laundry before you leave. We paid a cleaning fee which should include all laundry. We had to launder the beach towels, and it was requested, but not mandated, that we wash the sheets. A limited amount of the basics are supplied initially, but if you run out of things like toilet paper, paper towels, body wash, etc., you will need to replace them. We couldn't even find an extra garbage bag in the condo. Due to allergies to scented laundry detergent, we requested that laundry detergent free of dyes and perfumes be used to wash the sheets and towels before we arrived. The owners accommodated our request, but because there was a caretaker at the time of our stay, we were charged for both the new laundry detergent and her time. It seemed a little petty. Even though we got to keep the detergent (but had no intention or way of bringing home to the mainland), the owner could have kept it and used for future guests. We made the same request of the owners of the place we stayed at in Hilo, and they cheerfully accommodated our request without a charge. The place in Hilo uses a caretaker all year long, as the owners are never in residence. Overall, we were happy with the condo and its quiet location close to many of the sights we explored."

  • AMAZING condo with GORGEOUS views!! (Please read if you have mobile babies though!)

    "We had two families stay in this penthouse condo, with 5 people in each family, so 10 people total. This condo was perfect for our small family reunion! Absolutely amazing views! Everything we needed already stocked (and some we didn't know we needed!), including all kitchen supplies, extra toiletries, extra games/cards/binoculars, sand toys, extra beach towels, laundry detergent, and more. Parking was underneath the bundling, and a breeze. We were close to White Sands beach, and a great snorkeling beach, less than two miles from each. Close to downtown, but not close enough to be loud, or get into all the traffic. We used the facility pool, outdoor grills, and outdoor lawn areas. We also enjoyed looking through the tide pools each day when the tide was out. Holly was beyond helpful! When I asked her about a pack'n'play for my baby, we showed up to not only a brand new pack'n'play, but also, a brand new stroller! As wonderful as the condo was (we watched sea turtles from our very LARGE lanai every day), I do have to give a caution to families wanting to stay here with very young children. We had a baby (20 months) who is mobile, and I was not comfortable with her on the lanai during our entire time. She couldn't reach the top of the barrier, but the slats were wide enough that she could put her leg through. Since we were on the 4th floor, I was very worried! The barrier outside the condo (around the rest of the building) was worse, it was even wider! If you have older children, our next oldest was 6, this won't be a problem at all, it just was a concern with our baby. So, if you are taking a very young child, like less than 3 years old, I would caution you about the condo's lanai and building barriers."
