"This was our 4th trip to Hawaii, we travel with family to sunny locations for 3-4 weeks every February to get away from our cold, rainy Oregon weather. We believe this is the quietest and least crowded condo we have ever rented in Hawaii and truest to the owner's description. Corresponding with Eric and Elizabeth was easy and they were most accommodating to our family. We arrived to a "welcome" basket of snacks, candy and a beautiful Hawaiian calendar. They provide a huge album of all the island has to offer, maps/directions, dozens of menu's to the best places to eat by restaurant types and menu prices, many, many brochures for the most popular, economical rentals and excursions the island has to offer. The condo is exactly like the pictures and beautifully decorated! We were surprised to only use the air conditioning a couple of times in the 3 weeks we were there because the windows are well placed and the breezy trade winds that came through. The condo complex was quiet with very friendly and polite "snowbird" neighbors. Eric and Elizabeth provided us with everything we needed to "play" on the island. There are several sets of snorkeling gear, both flippers and masks for both children and adults (we are "just for fun" snorkelers, not avid), a couple of boogie boards and children's sand toys which was very much appreciated and saved us from buying or renting this equipment. They also provide beach towels, chairs, sand mats and a large umbrella. They provide ping pong, tennis and shuffle board equipment and these activities are just steps from the condo. We had several nights of fun playing these games! The hot tub and large heated pool (yes it was warm) were both never crowded (really!) which surprised us, and just steps away from the condo. We never had a problem getting parking spots right in front of the condo even after being away all day. The long, beautiful stretch of sandy beach was just a 5 minute walk and was NEVER crowded (honest!!) and great for shell collecting. The location of the condo was close to the airport, shops and restaurants which made it convenient. We have traveled for many years and this was by far the most organized and well thought out home we have ever rented. Mahalo to both Eric and Elizabeth for providing us with everything we needed, but most of all for helping to make this our most relaxed and enjoyable vacation yet!. We look forward to renting their unit again in the future. Aloha!"
