This is a very nice complex. The grounds are beautiful and well maintained. There are a lot of wide open grass areas for kids to runaround as well as grills throughout that we used often (go to Costco in Lihue to buy everything you need for your stay). The complex is right on the beach which is very nice. There is a “kiosk” where you can check out towels and beach chairs for free. I think they had additional items too. Across the street from the complex is a nice pool that includes a kiddie area which is about 1 ft deep and connects to the main pool which has a fun water slide. There is also a hot tub, bathrooms and place to check out towels. In addition there are tennis courts. All of this is included for free as part of staying in the complex. Of course, it would had been nicer if this was on the grounds of the complex, but not that far of a walk. Also across the street is a shopping center that has some nice restaurants and shops.
The complex itself has many units which are spread out in many detached buildings and consist of ocean front, ocean view, partial ocean view and garden view. Each building looks like it included about 10 units or so. There were 10 of us who stayed here with both adults and children, ages 3 – 6 and we were divided up between a one bedroom and two bedroom unit. The one bedroom unit was a garden view and had nice accommodations. There is a balcony with a table, chairs and a couple lounge chairs that overlooked one of the gardens. The unit was nicely updated with granite counters in the kitchen. There was a sofa bed in the unit which makes for a nice option for a family of 4 if you don’t want to pay extra for a two bedroom. The two bedroom unit was considered a partial ocean view. It’s a two story unit on the second and third floor of the building. We had a nice partial ocean view from the top balcony which had a round table and chairs. The top floor was the living space with a decent size kitchen, a small round table for 3 people and a larger round table for 6 people. It also included two couches, one of which was a sofa bed. There was a nice TV as well. On the first floor were two bedrooms and two bathrooms. The first bedroom had two twin beds, closet and a TV with a detached bathroom. The second bedroom had a king bed, two big closets and an attached bathroom. It also had its own balcony with a couple chairs. Overall, both units were partially updated, but overall very nice. Overall, this was a very nice place to stay with a convenient location. There were a lot of families, but couples as well. I would definitely stay here again.
