"The good: Location is good. Easy walk to beach (5 mins), a few places to eat (Brennecke's, Kal Joe's). Nice view, can see ocean in distance, lot of tropical flora all around. Great flowers right in area. Good airflow in unit, quite comfy. Unit was very clean. Unit is quite large for 1 bedroom. We comfortably had some guests over. Unit was well furnished. Kitchen was well stocked. We liked the décor. Rental process and details were well explained and laid out; easy to manage. Some coolers, chairs, towels and guidebooks maps were there. Upstairs neighbors, we could hardly hear anything. Parking was so close and convenient, with large spaces (assigned per unit), down the stairs and just 10 feet to car.
The whatever: Roosters - You're on Kauai. Unless you pay for a place up super high or somehow out of the way/over an ocean cliff, they're usually around. :-) Bedroom could have some road noise, didn't really bother us. There is a flight of stairs, no problem for us at all.
Cons: The pool - Pool was nice, hot tub too. The pool could be noisy at times. Not usually a problem for us, except noisy kids at sunset and beyond. We were aware before we rented the unit per other reviews. Not ideal but not a big problem. The living room furniture might look a little old to some; we found it fine and very comfy and clean. The bed had a mattress topper that was a little too soft and didn't seem to stay on the mattress. It was okay though.
For the price, time of year (just after Christmas), we thought this was a great spot and a great value. The unit was nicer and cleaner than I would have guessed (very nice, very clean). The little imperfections we were aware of and they weren't a bother. We would stay again for sure."
