I was really worried when I read all the negative reviews. I took the advice of many to call ahead and request an updated unit. Well, Kahana 412 is perfect for us! On the ground floor (much easier access) in a mostly quiet complex, we felt very comfortable and the only real noises we heard were birds and some cars on Poipu Road.
The couple who own this unit keep an on-going guestbook and we've read nothing but stellar comments about all of the upgrades and comforts provided. I found myself calling it home after just a day!
Pool was a bit too child-friendly for our quiet needs but we're here on summer break so we can't complain. We love having the kitchen and washer/dryer in unit. We did our grocery shopping the first day and have saved so much money on eating out in restaurants. We're able to come home at night and relax without having to worry about going out for dinner.
I have a few comments to add about this particular unit: the owner has added in handicapped bars in the bathroom and by the stairs down into the living room/kitchen area. That made my life ever so much easier since I have a bad knee and ankle. We added a few things to the kitchen such as a lighter since we were hoping to use one of the charcoal grills but there aren't any, they were only gas nearby (contrary to the map provided to us upon check-in). The promised daily paper is only available in the office, not delivered to your doorstep. We haven't bothered to drive over to get it even though it is part of the $15/day resort fee. The beach is not a short stroll from our location, it is a good 15 minute walk. I was hoping to have some ocean available close but that hasn't happened however, I would never give up this condo just for an ocean view.
The location otherwise is perfect, close to both Koloa and the main roads.The front office was very helpful. I hope others have a positive experience here and post about it. The bad rep this place has is undeserved in our case.
