Date of Stay: Mar, 2013
Our stay at this condo was a truly enjoyable experience.
When we walked into the condo, we were immediately impressed with how neat and tidy the place was. We have done a fair bit of traveling and believe this is probably one of the cleanest places we’ve rented. The owners clearly care very much about their condo, and it is evident in the care that is taken in the upkeep.
The kitchen had absolutely everything that we needed in terms of appliances and kitchenware. They even provided a couple of essential condiments, which was wonderful.
The king sized bed is very comfortable – not too hard, not too mushy and the bedding was of a good quality.
The unit has WiFi, which was invaluable when it came to keeping in touch with the family back home, and cable TV.
The lanai overlooks an undeveloped patch of land and you can see the ocean just off in the distance. Sitting on the lanai was incredibly quiet and peaceful (one of us fell asleep on one of the comfy chairs there!) except when the downstairs renter’s cute little toddlers played an impromptu game of tag in the lawn just below us for about 1/2 an hour.
The neighbours were friendly, but not obtrusive.
The front door and bedroom window overlooks the hot tub, which could have been an issue as I am a light sleeper, but as the pool area closes down at nine (and apparently so do I on Hawaiian time), all was good with the world!
The pool is nice – there are several people who seem to enjoy sunning themselves during the day there, but we only took advantage of it in the evening after a quick soak in the hot tub.
The location is awesome, as it’s just a short walk down the hill and you are standing at the southern edge of Kam I beach. We loved that we could just pop on our bathing suits and head down for a quick morning dip in the ocean, a stroll on the beautiful Kam I beach or snorkel with the turtles off of Kam II. The owners provide most beach equipment, except for snorkeling gear, which can be rented at a reasonable cost just down the hill at Boss Frogs or Snorkel Bobs. A short stroll down the street brought us to all sorts of restaurants and shops. I recommend hitting up the cinnamon bun place for a breakfast treat and the Fred’s Mexican Cafe for some tasty tacos (go on Taco Tuesday).
The owners were nice, and very prompt with any questions that we had.I would recommend renting this unit to everyone.
