“Our idea of a wonderful, comfortable vacation property! Loved it!”
Reviewed 3 January 2013 for a stay in January 2013

We loved #7A. When we arrived, there were some welcome treats in the fridge...nice touch! The property is just shy of ocean front, with an angled ocean view from the lanai (close enough, though). The bed was comfortable, the 2.5 baths and quality furnishings on the lanai. I liked the proximity to the very quiet, well-kept beach which made for a great run 5km-ish to Kehei (sp?) and back. If there were drawbacks (not enough to prevent me from rebooking), light sleepers (like me) may be put-off by the property being under a flight path of the airport operating 24 hrs. You may hear a maximum of five flights/night. There are also public grounds beside the property, so on more than one occassion workers were out there early in the morning blowing leaves around (but you are not stuck between two complexes, which is a plus). Other than that, other guests and onsite property management are super quiet and quite friendly. The property also seems to be situated in like a wind tunnel and we happened to be there when the trade winds were in high gear (even though it's a warm wind, it can be annoying). Phil and Chris were just wonderful with whom to work. We'd stay here again in a heartbeat.
