Cozy wood-frame condos right on the ocean in a relaxed environment. Flats are large, individually owned (and decorated), and vary a bit from condo to condo. Our group had 2 different ocean view (1 with loft) and we were very pleased. Pros are the proximity to the ocean, groceries, cleanliness, BBQ on site, grassy areas, and the spacious abodes. The...

Aloha and Mahalo for your comments, you are "spot on" that each unit is individually owned and so there are no two units alike throughout the entire complex. As for the pools, there has been talk about heating the pools but the coldest temperature would be in the winter at 76 degrees F. In the Summer the pool temperatures can... More

Excellent location with porch direct to the see and to the swimming pool. Very quiet place mostly with elderly guest. The condo was great with very spacious rooms and all required utilities including washing machines etc. The only thing missing as a cafe or a restaurant at the facility, so you have to drive to restaurants. The restaurants nearby was... More

Stayed in Condo 401 , 2 adults and 2 teenage girls. Condo was a good size with a double bed (comfortable) and a double sofa bed (not so comfortable).

Thank you for your comments, I will look into the areas where we can improve. I can understand that most sofa beds are not the most comfortable, and we are looking at other alternatives like air beds. The units here are very large, so space is not the issue. Your descriptions of the surrounding area are "spot on" and it... More

We stayed in a 2 bedroom upper floor condo with loft for two weeks. This was a partial ocean view, and felt like ocean view as we had a clear view of the bay with surfers and snorkelers daily. Way too big for just the two of us, but we enjoyed the three decks off the unit, the ample supplies... More
