"How do you talk about the property without talking about the island? I will try. First of all, Melanie was so kind and generous to us. She provides all the staples guests need to begin their visit. This gets you going until you can make a trip to the grocery store. Next, all of her suggestions were so valuable. She was so correct in the activities and parks and beaches. We did attend the Chief's Luau on Melanie's suggestion, and it was outstanding! The girls enjoyed all the cultural activities and the hula lessons. The dancing was spectacular. Oh, I almost forgot! We had fresh mango, pineapple, and grapes awaiting us upon our arrival. Melanie has a mango tree on the property, and we could go outside and pick the freshest mangoes and the best tasting - nothing like we get in Georgia. Having the pool was a plus. The girls could swim after coming in from one of our excursions, and they thoroughly enjoyed this. We all had comfortable bedrooms. Having a washer and dryer helped with not having to pack so many clothes! The kitchen is set up so we could all maneuver around. The kitchen materials are top notch. Melanie has it outfitted for every cooking style. We did go snorkeling, and Melanie has all the equipment needed. We did not have to rent anything for this fun activity. We used the coolers and chairs, and even her roomy beach bags came in handy. There were 9 of us - 6 adults and 3 children. This was a vacation of a lifetime, and I am sure we will be talking about this paradise for years to come! Thank you to Melanie and all that you did for us!"
