We stayed toward the middle of building 6 which has a view of the ocean and mountains with no parking lot visibility and we had a 2 story 4 bedroom / 4 bath unit. We love the north shore and prefer this side of the island due to the lush gardens, cleanliness, and charming small-town atmosphere. The view from our unit was spectacular and we spent many hours sitting on the second floor balcony watching the water. The property is on a 200 foot bluff overlooking the north shore. While it tends to be humid it's cool enough and we enjoy leaving the doors and windows open and fans on - after city living with sealed air-conditioned housing and offices it's nice to enjoy tons of fresh air and hear the birds singing. This is definitely not a place to dress up - we stay in bathing suits covered by t-shirts/shorts, sun dresses or swim cover-ups pretty much full time.
The property is well maintained with a moderately sized but beautiful pool surrounded lounge chairs - many under thatched umbrellas. There are three sections to the pool separated by a large rock / waterfall feature. One side is more family oriented with a lap section and larger play area under the waterfalls. It also includes a large hot tub which is maintained at a pretty low temperature for a hot tub. There's a small protected wading area with little geysers and sprays for the really young children. On the opposite side is a small adult area. There's also a separated hot tub just for adults which we did not use.
From the web site - there are 202 condo's on the property with about a third being privately owned. There are two timeshare organizations on property as well - Cliffs Club and Cliffs Resort. The privately owned units vary in amenities and furnishings and of the timeshare units, the Cliffs Club units are generally better furnished and maintained having all been recently updated and refurnished.
There are roosters on site and they can be noisy though it is not constant noise by any means(not sure who decided roosters only crow at sun rise - these guys seem to crow whenever the mood strikes them). There's also a flock of Nene geese wandering around and many other birds which come visit us on the balcony.
The kitchen is fairly well stocked - many pans and utensils, toaster, microwave, full convection oven, dishwasher, blender and ice maker. Could use a few tupperware containers and a colander as additions. There's also a cooler which we used to picnic on the beach.
