If you are looking for a vacation experience AWAY from the crowds, then this is the place! I stayed at this complex in one of the condos and although it was nicely appointed, modern and had a great view, there is undeniable traffic noise from the bedrooms. I moved into one of Gigi's cottages and I never wanted to leave! The cottages are closer to the ocean and the only noise you hear is the ocean lulling you to sleep. I live in Waikiki year round, so having a place like this to get away to is priceless. The cottages are funky, quaint and charming, each one furnished in a kind of a cottage shabby sheik. Don't expect anything fancy, or you will be disappointed, but the location of the cottages will have you as close to the ocean as you could possibly be. They have everything you need, dishes, basic food items (generously left behind from previous visitors), beach towels, change of linens, snorkels, beach chairs, etc. and are all very clean. But what they mostly have is AMAZING VIEWS, BEACH FRONT LOCATION and QUIET! The beaches are great for swimming and protected by a large reef. Great snorkeling and beach combing. Never more than a few other people on the beach at the same time. There is a small convenience store almost across the street with necessities, and plate lunches, plus a Subway Sandwich shop. A few miles down the road is a local grocery store and a bit past that is a larger strip mall with a nice grocery store, shops and restaurants. Also close by is the Polynesian Cultural Center. Plenty of great beaches along the way for swimming, fishing and exploring. Don't come here if you want to eat out every meal, hit the bars and night life scene. DO come here if you want to taste the beauty and the land that is Hawaii. The prices, for Hawaii and for the incredible beachfront location, can't be matched anywhere on the island. I'm definitely going back!
