It was after the big rain we looked up towards the mountains and saw steep waterfalls cascading down.
We wanted to stay here so we weren't stuck in Waikiki and could experience a more "local" environment. Mission accomplished! The condo is surrounded by houses, not hotels ... our view from the porch was mountains, not buildings ... the nearby beach was practically empty instead of swarming with tourist bodies ... and I awoke to the sound of roosters, not the city. It was a cozy little place that was relaxing and stress-free. Aside from the beach, walking distance included McDonald's, a little general store, the post office, a gas station, and a shave ice stand. Awesome! Easy drive into Kailua or Kaneohe for shopping or restaurants. Also, Kailua had kayak rentals that we took full advantage of.
The rental was ALMOST fully equipped for everything we needed. Our only complaint was the bed ... big, but hard and uncomfortable. Resolved that with a trip to Target for a memory foam mattress, which was expensive, but necessary. The beach towels and beach toys was a nice surprise, the washer/dryer worked very well, and it was REALLY nice to have an airconditioner.
Bottom-line, a great place to stay if you like hard beds or are willing to spend an additional $80 on a memory foam mattress that you will lose when you go home.
