The Best Accommodation on the Island and Well-Priced
Submitted: December 8, 2012
Stayed: October 2012
Entry went without a hitch and the condo was in perfect condition and as pictured: impeccably appointed, quiet, exceptionally clean, and very well located. The layout is well thought out, the beds, bathrooms, and kitchen comfortable and well-appointed. The kitchen also had paper goods, coffee, and useful condiments. I even didn't need to pack my chef's knife. My husband thoroughly enjoyed the spacious lanai, where he could check the surf through binocs with a refer of Kona ale at arms reach. I loved everything. Not to overstate things, but the world dropped away and we found ourselves in a state of bliss. I was looking for a place for my husband to de-stress from a very demanding job, and your condo was the perfect remedy--it was not only absolutely stress-free, we were surrounded by tasteful luxury and beauty with not a thing to fix!
The nearby gourmet market was a real find. The prices were acceptable and the selection rivals Bristol Farms and Whole Foods. I found all the specialities I usually trek over from the mainland and an excellent selection of sushi, fish, meats, produce and wine. I was especially thrilled to find several cuts of local pastured beef. We saved a considerable amount making use of the lanai's bbq.
Our check-in, check-out, and refund of deposit went without a hitch. Parking was secure and well-located, the beach gear in the storage locker very appreciated, the clubhouse and pools serene, clean, and beautiful. Immediate access to the Kings' Trail was a real bonus as we could walk for miles and encountered new views all along the way; I'm glad we packed old running shoes as they were shredded by the time we left. Down the beach, we found a real jewel in the Lava Lava Bar and Grill, which serves very good food and cocktails under roof, on the patio, and on the sand! It was very convenient to be able to rent paddleboards a stone's throw from the clubhouse. We spent a relaxing day at A Bay spotting turtles, and one even crawled up the beach to take a look at us. In mid-October, the air and water temperatures were divine, the trade winds blew most of the week, and the Ironman crowds were gone.
Years ago I lived on Maui and Oahu and the BI has gained the aloha they have largely lost. In visiting the BI six times in the last three years, this property is by far the nicest and best situated and is now our first choice. I honestly can't think of one negative thing to say about the condo, management, or locale.
