I booked a four day stay at this property in February 2015, paying in full. I booked a two bedroom ocean view loft. I was contacted two weeks prior to my confirmed dates that the hotel was overbooked and I was being relocated to their sister property, Fairview Villas. This would have been a downgrade as I was being relocated... More

We rented a two bedroom condo here for 5 days and it was fantastic. Great location for peace and quiet, oceanfront views (worth it), outdoor dining, close to shopping and snorkeling. Spacious rooms and comfortable kitchens. All appliances. Washer dryer saves much suitcase space.

We rented a two bedroom partial ocean view unit on the first floor for five people. We were there 9 nights and very comfortable. Our balcony overlooked the ocean pool. The best thing about this resort was the location. Close enough to downtown and all the attractions and great beaches but out of the way enough for a calm quiet... More

We stayed for 6 nights in June 2015 and had a two bedroom condo looking over the golf course. The view was nice and the small outside area was peaceful. You can watch the very bright green lizards climb the plants. Considering the beach views are not spectacular the greens view is pretty good so don't be disappointed if it... More

Mahalo for your comments, we will use it to provide better service to our guests. I will personally check on the shower heads, and have them changed. I also like the fairway views, it is very quiet, even more so with the golf course being closed at this time. We are glad that you enjoyed your vacation time with us.... More

Our party of 8 rented 2 condos, one ocean front and one fairway view. Both were spacious and well equipped. The ocean view was more expensive but well worth it for the view and the cooling breeze. Although the location is quiet, it is an easy walk to a boat harbour where tours leave from, and a 'no frills' waterfront... More

If I am ever back in the area this is without a doubt where I'll stay. Our group of 8 had two of the 2 bedroom units, one down by the pool, and the other back by the golf course. Both of the units were great. If you are like me and have looked at every hotel and condo on... More

We checked in June 4th for 5 nights. The unit we were in did not have an ocean view, but was very spacious and clean. The bathroom could stand a remodel, otherwise it was a great place to stay. I liked the washer and dryer in the unit. The kitchen was also fully stocked, which is nice if you want... More

This was a great place to stay for our family of five. It was much more reasonably priced than a hotel would have been for us. Plus we could cook breakfast and keep food for luck as well. We had a beautiful ocean view to enjoy while drinking our coffee each morning. The condo was well stocked and clean. We... More

Outrigger properties are great and this property so far is our favorite. We arrived late and were able to reach security to check us in. Our two bedroom, partial ocean view was perfect. It had plenty of room and the view was just right. We did not use AC because it had plenty of windows and ceiling fans in each... More

Perfect place for vacations. Good location, close to the airport, shops, restaurants and other facilities. It is a residential condon, well furnished, clean, everything working fine in every room (TV, kichten, laundry, bedrooms and bathrooms). Beautiful gardens, clean pools. Very nice and hepful staff. Quiet, except for some build workers in the next apartment. Good for families, couples or friends... More
