We chose this condo because of the description that it was “newly renovated,” provided child items and of course for the view. The view is gorgeous and if I was only reviewing the views and balcony this would be a great review. But.. unfortunately the condo doesn't match. If

Lovely stay in unit 405A. Couldn't have asked for nicer accommodations. Condo well outfitted with everything we could possibly need, including one of the best views on the island. Sunsets to die for. Turtles and Tropicbirds easy to see from the lanai and from the pool area.

The location of these ocean front condos is superb. You look right over the ocean. The pool is also situated so you are looking over the ocean. The waves pound up against the volcanic black rocks day and night. There is a nice small grass lawn between the units and the

Elevator to 4th floor?
There was one in the building where we stayed, along with stairs; don't know about the others. The "entry level" is the second floor. There was a short set of stairs if you went to the right coming down from the parking area. If you go around to the left, you can wheel luggage down barrier free to the elevator or beyond to level 2 apts.

air conditioning
i stayed in the unit which has the lanai ;i believe dit was 101 b and it did have air conditioning.the owner of the adjacent unit was there and i asked the same question regarding a/c.he stated that the upper unit get cross ventilation and just open the doors for the breeze which blows daily.i for one would recommend either of the units that share the deck or lanai. the deck is 20 by 20 has table and chairs and lounge chairs and juts over the ocean.only the tow units have access to the deck.we would sit out there and watch the turtles each day and enjoy the sunset each night.we plan on going back in 2016.to avoid heat issues avoid the summer months.best month according to locals may or November.we did november and it was in the 80's each day.on our next trip we will do may.do rent the unit with the deck .we really loved the shores location and it was in walking distance to the state beach and to the grand hyatt.
