We arrived at the condo late in the evening on our first day after a very long flight from Alberta, Canada. We just wanted to bring in our luggage and relax. It was dark outside when we arrived, so we couldn't get a good feel for the place that was going to be our home for the next two weeks. While my wife was looking for the security code to enter into the automatic controller, I could see the well lit grounds had a beautiful tennis court, swimming pool and what looked to be a very well cared for area. From the instructions that were given to us by the owner, we were easily able to find our parking stall and the key to get into our condo.
On first entry into the condo, the first thing that we noticed was how much space our new place actually had. Kitchen was spacious, well lit with lots of cupboard space. Counter top was granite and the appliances were all newer stainless steel. The rest of the unit was clean with good quality furniture. There was a large bedroom on the main floor with a queen size bed that my oldest daughter used. A large loft with another queen bed was the space my youngest girl claimed for herself. The master bed room was very large with sliding doors that lead out on a very large lani. A second set of sliding doors lead out onto the lani from the main living area. This provided a great view from the living room area when the sun came up the following morning. And what a view it was! A lava rock coast line traced itself up and down the complex while getting constantly battered by the ocean provided a very relaxing treat for all the senses. Beautiful place to enjoy that morning cup of coffee. The sunset in the evening from the same vantage point was amazing and one of my personal highlights of our trip.
A stroll around the grounds revealed well kept beautiful lawns accented with lava rocks, large trees and shrubs. Tennis courts and a swimming pool provided much activities for all of us during our stay. To top it all off, a walk to the back of the complex put you that much nearer to that ocean experience that we had from our lani.
Negative things were hard to find during our stay and the only things that came to mind was the screen doors were not fitting properly and came off the track a couple of times. Also, the hallway door was jamming a little.
All in all, this was a beautiful condo. Wonderful area and a great place to call home for our stay on the big island.
