Very clean waterfront 1 bedroom unit with a great view of the pool and ocean
I have stayed here a couple of times. I love to get up and go for a run along the beach. There is also a free yoga/pilates class on the grass (facing the ocean) in front of the building Wednesday mornings but you must pay for the Saturday class.
I stayed in the third floor (top floor unit) so there is no noise from above. The pool is off the front door and the unit I stay in has a beautiful ocean view from the lanai off the back of the unit. There is a great bbq space at the pool. The linens are nice and the place is kept very clean (important to me)!
The central location is wonderful and you can walk on the beach for quite a while. The whale centre is just up the beach. The owner lent me an old bike and I wandered around on that! There were also some blow-up pool stuff in the closet on the lanai.
You are able to easily visit all the other towns from this location. I drove all the way around the island; one time to the north and around to the west, and the other to the east. Both directions are a big challenge but it really worth it. I borrowed a friend's car - some of the rental car companies won't allow you to go around the island.
I also visit the lavender farm, the winery, the IAO (i think that is the spelling) Valley for hiking, and over by Paia to watch the surfers. There is a great fish burger place on the corner by the only traffic light. Up the street from there is a cowboy town (you can rent horses) and the volcano. You can ride down the volcano on bikes. I like the second half of the ride better than the first half. Also, a 10 minute to the north (I think it is called Malkea) along the water is where you catch boats for cruises or scuba diving. Very expensive Wailea is just to the south along the water. There is now a two mile running / walk way along the water there.
The surfers are amazing. Sometimes, in the afternoon, the wind changes and all the surfers on kites (don't know what they are called) come over to the front of this building and fly from there. I haven't tried it but it certainly looks like a lot of fun!
I like this place. It is a great stepping off place to all things wonderful. Clean, beautiful views and very central.
