This was our first trip to Hawaii, and we couldn't have picked a better place. The units are nice, recently upgraded countertops, appliances, and flooring. As a bonus, the owners keep sand toys, boogie boards and beach mats in the closet (flippers too!). Our beach is beautiful and uncrowded, and just a 10 minute walk away is Poipu beach, which is by far one of the best places to snorkel in Hawaii, especially of you have kids. You just float, the fish flock around since there are reefs and rocks all around (so be sure to bring water shoes to protect your feet). The staff was very friendly and we rented off VRBO so it was reasonably priced.
I only had two minor negatives. Their pool is too far away. They have so much lawn beachfront, I think they need a pool there, but their pool is across the street, you pretty much need to drive there. The other thing is, because of the airy, louvered windows and doors, you hear everything your neighbor is doing. I know they need this because of no air conditioning, which isn't needed, but was pretty annoying.
