We booked this condo through VRBO and saved about 40%. We received outstanding service.
This complex is located next to a fairly upscale shopping center that was in the process of opening (similar to Kings shops, or Shops at Wailea). It is a good walk to the Mauna Lani or the Fairmont, but we used the Fairmont's shuttle, which will pick you up at the shops and drop you at your condo for free. It is not an easy walk to the beach from the condos, but we would get there on our morning walks.
The complex is gated and has a decent pool and jacuzzi. The homes are essentiall duplexes, but they really feel like single family homes. Ours was 2700 sq feet plus three lanais and an attached two car garage.
There were two master suites, which is wonderful for couples traveling together: no one gets short changed. Each bathroom was beautiful, with marble, granite, etc, and rivaled some hotel rooms in size. The third bedroom had its own attached bath and walk in closet as well. Even the laundry ROOM--not just a closet--was gorgeous. My brother utilized the downsstairs built in desk which was basically his office for the trip.
The kitchen was beautiful with a subzero fridge, drawer sytle dishwasher and granite counter tops. On the lanai there was a built in stainless steel BBQ with a refrig that was OURS alone to use. We had peak ocean and golf course views.
We were a quick drive to some beautiful beaches (Hapuna, Mauna Kea) and we enjoyed some resort style amenities. You get to use the Beach Club which is basically access to a parking lot right next to a small beach with a restaurant on it, but we really liked it for a quick trip to a beach and we enjoyed the bar at the restaurant (Lava flows on the beach).
These condos were the nicest I have ever stayed in and I don't know if I can even think of a resort that had nicer accomodations. My family was thrilled with what I had booked. I would definately stay here again.
Disadvantages are that you aren't a quick walk to a great beach, but you are just minutes by car.
