My family and I spent several days in this condo, and I have to say that we can't think of one thing that wasn't awesome! I had the opportunity to check out two other units nearby, and they were no comparison to this quiet, corner unit on the golf course. We made great use of the lanai, for meals, reading, and had a couple friends over for a visit. The nature sounds were abundant, the colorful birds were fun to watch, and we even saw about 30 deer on the golf course early one evening. I was up at the crack of dawn taking sunrise photos with the outline of Haleakala in the background. Then again I was out outside shooting sunset photos with the beautiful cloud formations.
The unit has two bedrooms with their own bathrooms. Beds were extremely comfortable and felt new. The air-conditioner cooled off the condo quickly so we were always comfortable. This unit is light and airy because it has windows on two sides of the unit. The kitchen was perfect for our needs, very well stocked. Trash and Recycle Bins are close by in the parking lot. Two nights, we walked down to the pool, grilled our dinner, and brought it back to the lanai to enjoy. We usually go to Costco after landing in Hawaii, and stock up for the week. We get some fresh fish and fruits, veggies and of course muffins!
On many mornings, we would walk from the condo down to the Marriott Hotel, and go to the Starbucks there. And then we would walk along the long paved path next to the beach along the ocean. It is so beautiful.
Regarding excursions, our favorite beach was McKenna's Big Beach. Just drive south for a few miles and you will see the sign for the McKenna State Park. Our favorite dinner (go at 4:30 to avoid waiting) was at Fred's Mexican Cafe in Kihei, open air, great food, great ambiance! One day, we got delicious sandwiches at the 808 Deli which is in the same complex as Fred's.
As if that wasn't enough, the condo owner Sherrie, is a doll. So helpful and wonderful, and couldn't be nicer to deal with. We highly recommend this condo!! Thank you Sherrie! We'll be back!
