Second time staying here. Highly recommend the 2 bedroom with Oceanfront. Master bed is facing the lanai and the ocean. Very relaxing to hear the waves at night. Staff are very helpful and friendly. We will be back!

The property is as ocean front as it gets, but had a little trouble with our first room assignment. Room #202 must not have been rented in awhile because it smelled horribly musty and had black mold on the ceiling above the a/c vent. Switched to Room #104 which was better, but the dishwasher didn't work properly and there were... More

We loved this place! we had a lovely 1 bedroom condo with 2 bathrooms (very convenient feature) and in room laundry with an amazing ocean view. Pool area with small beach and grassy area overlooks the rocky (typical) beach. Super friendly staff and good amenities. Quick walk in the morning to a cute little coffee house that also served some... More

We were pleased with our accommodations and would consider booking here again if in the area. They could use a more thorough cleaning (cupboard doors, fridge doors, bedroom doors, some mattresses were in need of replacement.) The staff was super friendly. We had the pool to ourselves almost every day. Views are great, right on the water. Close proximity to... More

We stayed a week in a beautiful condo. There are two buildings on the property and we stayed in the building which has a parking garage. We were in condo #220 which was the most beautiful place that we had ever rented. The furniture inside and on the big balcony was new and very comfortable. It was also richly decorated.... More

We were running away from the vacation camp Waikoloa Beach Marriott and found that hotel. We received a nice big apartment with two bedrooms, fully equipped kitchen, washing and drying machine, dining and living room with sea view, and more. The swimming pool was nice as well as a big jacuzzi. The only problem is they don't serve meals. But... More
