We stayed in Unit 56 which is an oceanfront unit, and it suited our family perfectly. The unit had been recently updated and was in mint condition. Upstairs has two double beds in one bedroom and a queen bed in the master bedroom. Our oldest son slept on an aero bed which was quite comfortable. We made good use of the well-equipped kitchen for breakfast and lunch. The unit comes with a washer and dryer (VERY handy), and three bathrooms all with showers. There is plenty of closet space, and a safe in the master bedroom. Two A/C units were provided which we used sparingly as the breezes kept the unit nice and comfortable for most of the stay. We spent many pleasant evenings on the patio watching the waves.
The unit also has beach chairs and umbrellas. A number of beach equipment rental facilities are very close with everything else you might need. The closest beach is at the Sheraton – a short walk. We also drove to other beaches, and the kids went boogie boarding at Brenneke’s beach. (It can be very rough there so be careful.) There are many good places to eat within walking distance or a very short drive. Each unit has a reserved parking spot.
The staff was friendly and helpful. It is hard to find anything to complain about… the internet wasn’t working while we were there and it could have been useful. In addition, the unit faces the ocean, with a road between the property and the rocky beach. In August the waves are good for surfing and on most evenings locals would park on the road and either surf or watch the sunset. Usually it wasn’t a problem. We all agreed that this was much nicer than staying in hotel rooms, and the smaller facility made the stay feel more intimate than a larger complex. We will definitely stay here if we go back to Kauai.
