Mahalo for the review!

5 out of 5

Great choice

Pros: We loved the beach views and access, beautiful grounds and spacious, well stocked condo.
Cons: It would have been nice to be informed ahead of time that we had to check-in at an off-site location.
Location: The location is great for beach access. I was just a little disappointed that it was not within walking distance to food and shopping.
It was amazing! We were very happy that we stayed here,

Beautiful View.

Cons: The furninture needs to be changed.
Location: Golf, snorkeling, diving, mountain trails, sunsets.
If you don't plan on spending much time in the condo, and are going for the beach and the view from the condo, this is a worthwhile resort. I don't agree with the 4-5/5 ratings; our unit was 209. The bedroom and dining room furniture was dated, and should be changed (reminded me and my wife of staying in some of the Outer Banks homes in NC). The carpet was "clean", but must have contained a lot of dust, because we sneezed the entire time we were there. The controls for the lighting, and fans in the dining room and kitchen were overly complicated, and the dining room table was cheezy. We were there during the recent tropical storm. The blessing was that the storm missed us, and we were able to spend most of our waking hours outside of the unit. Here are the pluses: very clean pool, close access to the beach, meticulous care of the outdoor grounds, attentive cleaning staff, and Maui!!!!

Wedding of my dreams

I loved this place. It kinda faked us out when we arrived, but once we got to the room, everything was heaven. We arrived and parking lot was not pretty. We parked next to a dumpster and were annoyed. We rolled our bags up to the door, unlocked it, opened it up, took about 5 steps and the jaws dropped. We were staring striaght through the hall, down the steps and out in to the Pacific Ocean. From the door the view was spectacular. The condo had a kitchen, dining room and living room area which all looked out on to our lanai and the ocean below. Heavenly, private and soothing. There were two bedrooms and two bathrooms. There was daily maid service and they did a fine job. The herb garden on the property was an added delight, as we cooked quite a lot and love fresh herbs with our amazingly fresh fish. The grounds were well manicured and the beach a hop, skip and a jump away. There were two beaches and we were situated closer to the smaller and more private of the two. Our own private paradise. Everyday around 4pm the sea turtles would come for their swim and show off their stuff to the other turtles around. The sunsets were spectacular every night and the quiet wedding we had on the beach was a dream come true. We can't wait to return.
