"We picked this property in July 2016 for a 3 generation family Christmas vacation, the first 6 days being on the Oahu north shore and the second 4 days on Kauai. We were sure that my wife, my 20 year-old daughter, my married 29-year old son, his wife, and their 16 month old would make it. We were unsure if my 23-year son would be able to join us; he was. We could see the condo was just remodeled and done very nicely when we picked it in July. We felt it would be perfect if my 23-year couldn't make it and I was willing to sleep on the cot if he did. Turned out that though my wife and I normally sleep in a king-size bed, the full size bed was very comfortable for us both in size and with only the windows open, fans on. My son and daughter were more than fine in the other full-size beds in the loft. Plenty of room. Married son, daughter, and their son found the downstairs bedroom perfect. Alexis was very responsive to our questions before we booked, after we booked, as we arrived, and while we were there; provided a pack-and-play for our grandson; had a suggestion on how to keep him from climbing the steps; etc. The appliances and bathrooms were super clean. We used the washer and dryer often. The TV was fantastic (big and lots of channels). The dishwasher worked fine every day. With the hardwood floors, no mold or smells. The proximity to the Turtle Bay Resort offerings (kayak trip, horseback riding, Starbucks coffee, spa, Roy's, walk around hotel on beach, etc.) were very nice. The whole general location was great, as my 23-year son said. The Foodland near Banzai Pipeline had everything we needed. The food trucks just north of the Foodland served everything from waffles to fresh fish: great food, reasonable price. The burger place behind the "general store" going east about 7 miles had very tasty $7 hamburgers.
A few things to be aware of. The hot water may only last one shower, but the next shower was always hot. My wife and daughter-in-law said the dryer seemed to take 1 cycle cycle sometimes and 3 cycles other times. (It only took 1 cycle for me the time I used it and used the hottest setting.)
Oh, we unanimously agreed we liked this place better than the 3 bedroom, 3 bath facility we got for twice the price on Kauai."
