My husband and I found this place through Costco Travel. We changed our original reservation for a 3-star place to this location because we liked the idea of a condo. We had spent 5 days prior on Maui for a work event and had had about enough of big dinners and eating out, so having a condo so we could make our own food and have our own food around was great. Upon checking in we were supplied with a reusable grocery bag and told of the local stores we could shop at. Having basics like fruit, cereal, milk, cold-cuts for sandwiches, and even picking up a roasted chicken was just what we wanted. Had we stayed at a hotel we would not neccessarily have the option to keep food around like that.
The condo kitchen was a lovely granite topped, all stainless steel appliance, cherry wood room that opened into a living space with small eating table, couch, love seat, and a flat screen. We had 2 full size bathrooms, one with a huge tub next to the walk in shower. There were 2 balconies. My other favorite part was the full size/stacked front loading washer/dryer. Especially having been on maui for a week, it was great to wash certain items. We just brought the washer detergent drops and dryer sheets and we were good to go.
Pro's: location on the island is great for exploring and driving, you aren't completely on one side of the island. The town of Kapa'a is right there and full of shops and restaurants.
Cons: if you want to swim, the beach is non-swimmable due to rocks and the currents. They do have a lovely pool area to accomodate for that. I wouldn't say this place is nestled in a overly scenic area of the island, so if you are seeking that I would look elsewhere.
Our room faced the parking lot but we weren't there a lot so it wasn't a big deal. Not sure how noisy it would have been towards the pool. A few rooms face out to the beach.
Overall we were very happy here and didn't have any complaints. It was great for wanting more than a hotel, but not needing something overly fancy with a view.
