Can words be found to adequately describe and capture the essence of PURE MAGIC & ENCHANTMENT? Our family's 10 day stay was just such an experience! Two and a half yrs of dreams, wishes, & planning came to fruition this month. From the moment of our arrival and John and Lina's warm Aloha greeting as our hosts, we celebrated delight, joy, laughter and memory making. The entire property FAR EXCEEDED our expectations!! You can read the description of all it has to offer; yet living amid it, using all the thoughtfully selected and provided amenities you find yourself awe struck at times! With 4 young grandsons the amount of beach towel usage and subsequent laundry use was just ONE blessing we offered thanks for during our stay. We NEVER ate a meal out, (did enjoy ice cream & shave ice treat times(!)), (shop Costco coming from the airport!) the grill was used frequently, both refrig/freezers were stuffed, ice maker soooo appreciated, beds super comfy, wondrous linen supplies, gorgeous furnishings throughout! Very well maintained. We felt very pampered!! The boys thought "going to the movies" in the downstairs "theatre" was wonderful! The availability of the rental equipment proved to be priceless. New kayaking enthusiasts were created with pre-dawn outings each morning and early evening. Snorkeling amid sea turtles and colorful tropical fish are highlights for a lifetime! Soccer games, pool play, lizard hunting/watching, bicycling, boogie board riding, sand castle building...at days end 4 young boys had crammed in countless adventures. A great selection to choose from! Even experiencing the 2 hurricanes added to our treasured moments. John and Jason safely boarded us in, then quickly removed them when they could. (mahalo Dr C for your concern and thoughtfulness in this!). John and Lina: simply a fantastic couple, we could call them ANYTIME with a question or problem.., always helpful, competent, caring, friendly and joys to be with! Their knowledge/insight of their island and people added to our appreciation/joy. The park-like, extensive grounds are gloriously planted and cared for, the flowers afforded me some outstanding photo moments! Sitting topside on the balcony, poolside under the gazebo or even beach-chairing it out on the beach you are swept away by the physical grandeur and beauty of this location..., add the sound of the trade winds singing in concert with the surf and rustling coconut fronds,.. you KNOW you are in paradise!
