“A wonderful home away from home, great location & the owner is fantastic!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2012 for a stay in April 2012

We arrived for a little over a week stay at the Ali'i Villas unit 123 after making arrangements with Shannon, who was so very kind and helpful. We were met by Jack, the property manager, and he helped us to our unit. Shannon has wonderful tips on activities and dining options for her guests. She was always available to answer questions as well.
The condo was very clean and it was quite comfortable. It was so nice being able to use the boogie boards, snorkeling equipment, beach towels, etc. The bed was comfortable and my daughter slept well on the pull out.
We were hardly ever "home", but when we were it was nice to have just about anything you may need or want. The kitchen has all basic essentials and then some. We used the washer and dryer a few times and it was vey efficient.
The unit did not have central air conditioning, but a standing air conditioner in the bedroom, and we used it at night. This was nice for the bedroom, but the rest of the condo was a warm at times. This type of AC is pretty common in condos in Hawaii, and we have rented a similar condos with a wall unit a few times in the past as well.
The complex was very quiet, and the pool is right outside the lanai of the condo. We never experienced any noise from the pool, and we slept well at night. My daughter only visited the pool twice, but it was very clean including the restrooms. Very nice area. All the guests and residents were very friendly.
Jack was very helpful and printed our boarding passes for us on out final day. We could have stayed at least another week, that is for sure!
Thank you Shannon for a wonderful stay in your condo and for all your suggestions and tips. We had a blast!
