"Location, location, location! The views are incredible from the condo! Right in front of the resort is a bay - great for snorkeling to see turtles, beautiful fish and even octopus! The tidal pools are such fun to explore! There is an awesome beach for quiet relaxation listening to the waves, SUP, boogie boarding or snorkeling.
I will admit I was a little nervous after reading all the recent negative reviews this unit. I'm not sure what the reviewers were expecting, but if you want a pristine room and white glove service go down the road to the "fancy hotel' It is nice (been there) but not oceanfront. There are no blinds but why would you want to block that gorgeous ocean view? It was hot and stuffy in the unit when we first arrived, but we opened the windows and lanai door and immediately the trade winds begin to cool it down with a brisk and lovely breeze. This unit has breathtaking views sun up to sun down. The floor to ceiling windows and screened glass door opens up to a generous lanai facing the ocean and the neighboring islands. We watched 5-11 surfers every day and saw whales and turtles from the lanai! The kitchen was adequately stocked with cooking utensils. The L shaped sectional living room furniture was perfect to curl up in and admire the view. Wifi was available. We were there 8 days, 7 nights and never once turned on any tvs. The sound of the waves crashing below us was enough! The beds and pillows were very comfortable. Bathrooms were adequate. Downstairs bathroom shower did not have hot water but we did not ask for maintenance as we didn't want to be bothered by repairs. There was hot water for a bath but when you pulled the lever for a shower, the diverter valve must have been broke. I have let the owner know. There were beach towels and ample bathroom towels. 3 beach chairs and an umbrella were stored in the closet. The washer and dryer in the unit was nice to have.
This was a girls trip of adventure and relaxation. It is our favorite place to stay.this wonderful unit provided what we needed and wanted; views, comforts and location in our preferred area at a reasonable price. I would definitely stay here again!"
