First of all, I want to thank Kathy for the privilege of staying at this location. She was a pleasure to deal with on the phone; she was very efficient in sending the documents that I needed to read and sign, she made all of the terms very clear before I decided to sign. As for the experience of staying there, all I can say is WOW!!! This property is located in a prime spot on the north shore of Oahu, it has a private beach area which was very nice (I saw a sea turtle nearby on the beach one night that was laying her eggs, another first for me) a spectacular view of the ocean and the mountains inland across Kamehameha Highway (Highway 83), it's very conveniently located near the Polynesian Cultural Center, several beach parks are a short drive from the condo building, the city of Kaneohe isn't far away with a nice mall and other places of interest .(Check out the Ho'omaluhia Botanical Gardens) The main attraction for me to this location was the friendly locals that I dealt with. I truly felt the true spirit and meaning of aloha while I stayed here. By the way, I stayed in unit 708, which was recently refurbished with copper sinks and faucet fixtures, tiled floors, nice furniture, a comfy bed, everything that you need in the way of eating utensils, cleaning supplies, dishes, etc. I even found personal hygiene items, sunblock, and first aid items (which I needed since I somehow got a nasty blister on my toe from walking the beach too much!) in the cabinet under the bathroom sink. No loud, rowdy behavior is allowed here; quiet time is from 8:00 PM to 7:00 AM and it's enforced since some of the building supervisors as well as private residents live in the same building. The units have a washer and dryer with laundry supplies provided; no common laundry area that you might find in hotels, and no waiting in line for someone else to finish their laundry). In other words, I felt at home. Just one word of warning: NO SMOKING! This includes the balcony (lanai) and areas close to the building. Oh yeah, I'd stay here again in a heartbeat! Mahalo to everyone who made my experience here a peaceful, relaxing one.
