"I would have rated this at 3.5 stars, but because you can't rate in half stars and everything else went well, I leaned more to 4. Let me start by saying this was a very well-equipped and clean apartment with a wonderful view, as said on the reviews. Check in/out was super easy and no issues with management or money. However, it is VERY warm in the apartment at nights (and days) due to no air conditioning and very poor ceiling fan speeds! Most older oceanfront condos in this area are built this way and this side of the island (West coast), there is no cooling breeze to help with air flow. So even in the evenings, it is very warm and humid. Our room had a temperature of between 27-30 C or 80-85F with a very weak ceiling fan. We were forced to buy a $40 standing fan at Walmart to cool us down at nights, so we left a nice parting gift to the owner and the next renters there. I don't mean to complain, but it was very difficult to sleep at night because of the warmth and the loud crashing waves because you have to leave the windows wide open. Especially difficult if you like to sleep in a cooler temperature at night. We were so tempted to leave early and get a hotel room with A/C in town. Even Hilo and Honolulu felt much cooler in the evenings because of the winds that blow on from the East. I know this is Hawaii, but on this side of the island, you will want A/C, trust me! Also, the apartment is on the 3rd floor, so keep this in mind when hauling stuff up to the apartment. Not suitable for people with mobility issues."
