"We, a family of two adults (56/51) and two children (16/13) from Germany, stayed for 10 days in the condo of Volker and Gina Bauerle. Already from the booking procedure on and until we left we were supported in a very friendly manner by Volker and Gina. They gave us hints and tipps whenever we needed help (this communication was maybe a little bit empowered by the fact that Volker and Gina derive from Germany - many years ago). Everything in the condo was very clean, working properly and as expected. For four persons there is plenty of space: In the upper floor a big living room with attached kitchen and on the other side towards the plantation a big lanai on which we had our meals. In the ground floor you have another two rooms, individual bathrooms for each room and a terrace. The plantation is very beautiful, green and very nicely cultivated. Mango trees are located in front of the condo. Sometimes mangos drop of the tree and we added them to our menue ;-) Several barbecue grills are located in the plantation and kept ready for operation by the service team. The beach is beautiful and we recommend to make use of the facilities of the Athletic Club. We played a lot of tennis and made use of the fitness studio. You get bath towels at the beach and in the Club. Across the street there is a Shopping Center and an nice Restaurant (Keoki´s Paradise).
We were a little bit surprised by the food prices in Hawai´i. You cannot expect supermarket prices like you are used to. But you get very delicious fruits (papayas, avocados, pinapples, mangos...) for fair prices (much better then in the supermarket) on the farmer market in Koloa every Monday from 10.00-12.00 am.
We stayed 10 days on Big Island, 10 days on Kauai and another 7 days on O´ahu. Kauai was certainly the most beautiful Island. Of course it depends on what you are looking for. If you are interested in nature, tropical forest, hiking through the rain forest, Kanu trips ... we very strongly recommend to include Kauai into your Hawai´i trip. And you can rely on the help of the owners of this condo, Volker and Gina. They do everything they can for you."
