"Located within a quiet gated resort, this gem of a condo was on the ocean - so close ocean spray would condense on the lanai screen at night. We were surprised that the place was actually larger than anticipated making our stay that much more enjoyable. The lack of AC wasn't an issue as we left the lanai doors and windows open during the night with fans pulling in the cool night air (80's during the day, 70's during the night). The kitchen was fully stocked with fun cookware and dishes, this foodie was very pleased. A view of the ocean while cooking was spectacular and eating on the lanai was a regular event so we could enjoy watching the birds and ocean waves...even saw spinner dolphins! The beds were comfortable, linens nice quality. Over-sized artwork adorns the walls, making the condo very homey with a lived in feel. We would fall asleep with the ocean waves and awake with the chirping of birds (Nature lovers delight). The master bedroom opens to the living space via three large oriental papery sliding doors - we thought this was great, but might not be for some folks that require more privacy. The TV and electronics are a little dated but realized after we left that we didn't use any of them - the lanai was where we spent the majority of our evenings and all our breakfasts. The condo, since it is on the ocean and near the salty air, has some rust marks on a couple light fixtures and a couple oddly locking doors, but this just added to the overall character. This location is less than 5 minutes from the Kahaluu beach park which is an excellent snorkeling and surfing area. 5 min the other direction is KTA market where you will find Poke and other fresh local ingredients for your favorite recipes. We loved this condo, the location, and look forward to returning someday. My only hope upon our return is so see replacement artwork in the master bedroom - it's become very faded.
If you love to be lulled to sleep by the ocean, cook some great meals, and stretch out and relax - this is your oasis. Mahalo!"
