This is about 3 years late in coming, but I had a friend who recently asked about this property. I had originally located the property on the internet...the web site shows some amazing views, rooms, etc. I knew going in it was not a hotel and we were prepared to cook, shop, etc. to be on the east side of the island.
We arrived on Oahu in the evening, driving to the 'condo's'. Upon arrival I was greeted by a monolith apartment building that appeared pretty run down. I had my wife, two kids (then ages 2 and 5) and my mother-in-law. As soon as we exited the rental vehicle there was a strong smell of sewage. The elevators were old and clunky and in general, the place appeared pretty run down, as well as the folks in the area looked pretty shady, like the neighborhood belonged more in the inner city than in a beautiful spot on the beach.
When we hauled our luggage to the room, we were finding rust in the bathroom, gratings, windows and sliding door. The sliding door would not lock as well and, although advertised as having a Lanai, it was barely big enough to accomodate, much less want to sit in the 'so called' furniture.
We managed to find dirty linens, the bathroom was filthy, the sewer smell was even prevelant on the floor we were on, on the ocean side yet. The appliances were dirty and had seen better days. The only shopping I saw in the area was very small and some distance, other than the small package store, from the property.
We were tired and disillusioned as we were expecting what we saw on the web site...boy, were we suprised!...on top of this all were tired and two small kids were exhausted. We grabbed our luggage and left, staying the remainder of the time at the Hilton on Waikiki, much better. I'm not trying to ruin the business, but 'buyer beware'!
