WOW! We (my husband and I) had such a wonderful time in HI - and a huge part of it was this perfect condo. We arrived late so we didn't get a chance to look around much outside but inside everything is as pictured! We thoroughly enjoyed our first sunrise on the deck over looking those cute, colorful, little homes and the ocean! You really can see it from your deck... and, much to our surprise when we opened the door out to the parking lot, we had an incredible view of the highest point in Oahu!
Most of our time was spent outside snorkeling, hiking, and exploring but, we did experience the hurricane during our stay and it was so nice to have a great place to bunker down in. The kitchen was excellent - we did most of our cooking at the condo apart from some breakfasts out at the Coffee Gallery (which we highly recommend). The bed was very comfortable, the sea breeze was lovely, and an added bonus for us was that if you use the elevator key you can access the open area on the roof to watch the sunset - don't miss out, it is incredible!
Everything was sufficiently clean, and we really did not struggle with bugs as I hear some do in HI. Be careful with your food and you should not have any issues apart from the stray sugar ant (they really can't be avoided in HI).
The local shops in Haleiwa and the Old Sugar Mill were a lot of fun to explore as well as the farmer's markets (there is one at the Sugar Mill on Saturdays and one in Waimea on Thursdays). We also enjoyed swimming at Aweoweo beach which is in walking distance! The location was perfect in our opinion as we wanted to be away from the busyness of the cities and just relax.
While out of the busyness of cities we were still only an hour drive from almost anywhere on the island. We highly recommend driving the east coast, hiking Koko Head, Diamond Head, Manoa Falls, and snorkeling at Haunama Bay, Three tables (if the waves are not bad), and Sharks Cove. Also, the Pearl Harbor memorials were just incredible to see.
On top of this wonderful property, I have nothing but praise for Karen! She is excellent to work with. We had some plane/weather troubles that caused a lot of interruptions with our original reservation and she was so willing to help and work with us, despite our plans being up in the air for a while. We had to call her multiple times and she was always courteous and helpful - thank you Karen! We highly recommend this property to anyone!
