My wife, two babies, and our two adult friends stayed at the apartment for five days, and we all had a wonderful time.
The beauty of the place is in its details. For example, each day we enjoyed looking out the giant, panaromaic view and looking down on turtles playing in the shallows off the private beach for the apartment building. Similarly, we found the place very comfortable to live in because of Jerry and Cynthia's thoughtfulness. This began with their welcome bag, which was such a kind, generous, and personal touch that we felt immediately like we were staying in a freind's apartment instead of a stranger's.
We also found it very helpful and easy to enjoy their kitchen, which was beautifully clean and well stocked, as were the closets of fresh linen and towels. And we likewise appreciated the convenience of the closet full of beach toys, chairs, and blankets, as well as a playpen for the babies.
Of note, our two friends never needed to close the sliding door to create the second bedroom out of the living room as the master bedroom is sufficiently encapsulted sonically when its door is shut. So having adult friends spend almost a week in relatively close quarters with two babies in the apartment didn't prove too torturous for them, thankfully!
Also, the apartment in general is very quiet, both in itself and on its street. And it's an easy drive to nearby Haleiwa, for food and fun (and to see turtles on the state beach, which our older son loved).
In other words, this apartment was equipped for all of our needs, and we therefore couldn't have been happier with it. And we would definitely stay with Jerry and Cynthia again, especially as they are so warmly invested in providing a wonderful experience to their renters.
