"LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION--if you want the beach and a wonderful vacation, you MUST stay here!! I rented this condo for my parents, brother and my fiance last week, and this was SO perfect in SO many ways!! Upon our arrival, we met Patty and she was amazing! She gave us really great suggestions on where to eat lunch/dinner and so helpful!! The property manager, Jeff, was also very great (we want his job! LOL)! He cleaned the pool everyday, turned over the chairs and just kept the whole place looking great!
One of our favorite activities was to join the owners on the 'green' grass by the water and watch the sunset with our favorite cocktail. At the end of the grass is rocks, and its so awesome because you can see so many TURTLES!! We even bought a snorkel set so we could check them out. There is a VERY SHORT path down to the beach, im talking like 50 feet to put your feet in beautiful sand and crashing waves. My mom and I snorkeled every morning and saw TONS of sea turtles, various fishes and a super mini octopus! AWESOME. We loved the Lanai (patio). I took several naps in the red chair, just listening to the ocean and enjoying the day.
The Condo was PERFECT--they had a blender, and plenty of plates/cookware! Even though there is no AC, there was plenty of wind to come through the other side that provided a wonderful breeze and just enough for on the Lanai to not blow everything away but still stay comfortable! In my opinion, if you have to have AC in Hawaii, then you might as well go to Alaska! Hawaii is perfect temps ALL YEAR LONG. This location was great--every time we left the condo it rained wherever we went, so we spent SO much time at the condo, and it was fabulous! It was really like our own backyard oasis! People in other reviews complained about the pool and noise... ummm, YOUR ON VACATION, HAVE SOME FUN and join in on the fun!! We never had any complaints!! Across the street was Cafe O Lei, and its delicious and really reasonably priced! FREDs is close and we loved it there too. Liquor store is also across the street, along with a general market and SHOPS! You must also try the Cinnamon Rolls that are across the street too!!! YUMMO! If you want to save some $$, GRILL OUT, they have 2 grass grills which are PERFECT for dinner/lunch! We grilled every day--and the condo is stocked with plenty of supplies!! To the Owners--if you ever want to sell, call me! :)"
