"We stayed for 7 nights at Lanelle's condo and this is by far the best place we have ever stayed at in Hawaii. We had out two year old boy/girl twins with us and this was the first Hawaii trip since we had our twins. I was so pleased Lanelle's condo had everything suited not just for adults, but I mean everything for our twins! The kitchen was stocked with dishes and cups catering to the little ones. The condo was also equipped with not only fins/snorkel for adults, but Lanelle even had floating body/arm vests for our twins. Thanks to the floating vests, my twins were swimming all over in the lagoon and pools.
Location, location, location! Due to having little ones, we decided to choose Lanelle's condo since it's located on the ground floor level. The french doors near the kitchen/dining room opens all the way and leads right onto the back lanai. We ate on the lanai every morning (go to Costco and stock up, only about five minutes away) and it was so peaceful. Our twins enjoyed the birds and weasels (I think they were weasels) coming up to us as we enjoyed breakfast.
The condo had nice, large, thick beach towels and with the full size laundry/dryer inside the condo it was so convenient. Deep bath tub made it so much nicer to our twins to take baths together and having the separate shower was a bonus.
I couldn't believe how much privacy we had not only in the pools, but at the beach. We swam in the lagoon beach and pools everyday and I counted less than 10 people each day on the beach. No crowds like Waikiki and it really felt like we were on a private beach and the pools on the property were the ones you see in magazines and tv. There was a pool specifically designed for little ones, with the entire pool being only 1.5 feet. Talk about letting your kids play freely in the pool and enjoying drinks from the bar, which is located at the pools.
I highly recommend this property to families who want peace and quiet, but most of all being away from all the busy traffic and foot traffic like Waikiki. Lanelle, thank you very much for having us and I can honestly say our family has found our new vacation home from here on out when we return to Hawaii."
