This was a dream vacation for all seven of us. We made our reservations in February and our stay was in September. Our first interactions with this very modern, and clean property made us feel very much at home the minute we drove onto the property in Oahu. John was waiting to greet us with a big Hawaiian welcome, smile and handshake. Immediately nicknamed Surfer John in an affectionate way by our family! He was ready to meet any of our needs in person and by telephone. He showed us the property with pride of ownership and a commitment to us and his employer. John told us the normal maintenance guys would be on the premise and they came and went without disturbing us to keep the property bug free and the pool serviced. Our family came from Maryland, Oregon and Northern California for a 50th wedding anniversary celebration. This property is nicely furnished, spacious and will easily accommodate ten to twelve. It is modern, clean and stocked with everything you need. It was recommended by our Travel Agent to shop Costco for food on our way in and we did eat most of our meals on the property. Our daughters were designated drivers and they and their loved ones did all the barbecuing, cooking and cleaning throughout the week. You never needed to leave the property accept for Pearl Harbor, Paradise Cove Luau, and the Dole Plantation and of course shaved ice. We treated this property with pride of ownership, and felt like kings and princesses with two kitchens which included modern dishes, appliances and a new clean outdoor barbecue. What a special way to celebrate our anniversary, a dream come true since we are all hardworking blue collar workers including three in law enforcement.
My husband and I took the Master bedroom and had the best early morning and late night views from our balcony and then would sit facing the ocean watching for turtles, and enjoying our family members. That first cup of coffee in the morning before dawn was wonderful as the palms became visible and the birds started singing. What a wonderful view from the second floor balcony. Our family was snorkeling and/or in the pool at least two or three times every day. The Gazebo, Tiki Bar, living room and TV room allowed all types of sports games to be going for everyone’s favorite team.
The daily walks up and down the stairs and around the property and beach were very relaxing and good for us. The staircase was built with handrails to accommodate little ones as well as adults.
