We specifically wanted a condo with a kitchen and a view. Our stay during Thanksgiving 2010 wildly exceeded all of our expectations. The condo is AMAZING. The view is un-beatable. We would sit on the huge lanai for hours watching the water, reading books and enjoying Hawaiian music on the stereo. We saw whales with the condo’s binoculars (apparently they were a little early), watched scuba boats, and every morning would cross the street to watch the turtles while we enjoyed delicious and freshly-ground Hawaiian coffee. The condo is so thoughtfully outfitted: every kitchen tool, condiments, toiletries, grill tools, beach towels, games, videos, music—and most importantly--wonderful furniture on the lanai—we ate all our at-home meals there, and my husband would take his afternoon nap on the outdoor couch. A paddle in the pool during the heat of the day, happy hour during sunset on the lanai, then we’d fire up the grill to make dinner. The grounds of the building are very well-kept as is the building itself. The condo is luxurious, including very recent bathroom and kitchen renovations. It feels like an upscale hotel or resort, but without the crowds. All of the great Koloa restaurants are just a short drive. We toured the canyon, went on a Napali coast sunset cruise (not to be missed!), went to a luau (could be skipped), and enjoyed more kalua pork and mai tais than your doctor would recommend. You will be thrilled with your decision to stay here.
