I enjoyed my stay at the outrigger in December 2013. The grounds are very nicely maintained with three pools, the ocean pool seemed the most popular. It is very close to Keauhou shopping center which contains a few nicer restaurants (Sam Choy's, Kenichi pacific) and some take out places. In addition there is a grocery store to get food to bring back to the condo and eat. You can walk to the grocery store, but be prepared to walk uphill the entire way. It is in a quiet area as others have noted. We took the fairwind cruise and walked there, which was also convenient. Finally, I also enjoyed the path along the lava which leads to Keauhou bay if you walk south. Other nice amenities include a washer-dryer, full kitchen and 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms with a lanai that overlooked the pool and ocean.
The major drawback for me is that the condos looked like they were built in the 1980s and minimally updated since. Our unit at least had new carpet, but the kitchen and bathrooms were grossly outdated. Even some new caulk in the bathroom would be nice, or get rid of the nasty bidet.
Overall, for the type of trip we went on (family trip with 8 people), I would go back for the convenience of the kitchen, washer/dryer and spaciousness of the unit. I thought the grounds were very nicely maintained as well and the kids loved the pools when we were not in the ocean. However, the insides of our unit need some major renovations.
