Yes, there are still pieces of paradise available to enjoy!
Can't remember how we found this property, but... We were looking for an "oceanfront condo on Oahu". Of course there were a number if hits, but nothing like this 13th floor, corner unit north of Waianae on the West coast - the leeward side of the island. It's a well appointed unit, comfortable bed and all of the appliances you'll need, including a larger flat screen TV in the living room with a DVD/VHS player and a smaller flat screen in the bedroom with a DVD player. There's an updated kitchen, a nice large shower, a walk-in closet and a WONDERFUL wrap-around deck/lanai with views west and north. Below in the common area - a ping pong table, loads of books to read and a couple of natural gas barbecues. We met people from Vermont, Chicago and Colorado while enjoying a glass of wine while our meal was cooking to perfection! But the best deal? From our lanai we could watch turtles swimming in the cove - turtle cove. Take the elevator down and literally step out to the Pacific Ocean! There's a beautiful sandy beach with not only turtles you can swim with, but many varieties of tropical fish in the healthy coral in the cove. You can snorkel or rent a paddle board or even try your hand at surfing. A number of locals enjoy the beach - men fishing and kids showing their stuff on boogie boards! The beach was never crowded, the water was always warm and no matter how colorful, watching the sun set each evening was incredible! We read mixed reviews but decided those that didn't care for the area just needed to stay home. The locals are friendly and if a moment of insanity emerges, Honolulu and Waikiki are only 35 minutes away. Trails and more beaches abound if you want to get out and explore. We purchased food the evening we arrived and never left! There was no reason to! Beach, pool, hot tub, good books, internet, snorkeling, preparing your own meals... Who could want more? Enjoy!
