Perfect fit for our family!

When I first saw this listing on the internet there was only 1 review. Although it was a great review, it made me hesitate to book this house. After much research and speaking with Ron, I decided to book this house for our 5-night stay. I was definitely NOT disappointed!
When we arrived at 9:00 at night, the entire house was lit up as it was for previous guests. This helped tremendously because the house was farther down Paradise Dr. than I originally thought it was. By the way, the house is about 4-5 miles off of Rt. 130, down a very hilly road. We hated the road at first, but by the end of the trip we were laughing as we went down it!
The house was perfect for our family! We had 2 elderly family members that shared the master bedroom upstairs, my husband and I shared the master bedroom downstairs, my Mom stayed in the twin/double bedroom, and our 2 young children slept on the futon in the downstairs living room. The cleaning staff even laid out clean linens on the futon for us. We each had our own full bathrooms too as the house has 3 1/2 baths.
I was concerned that the house didn't have A/C, because I'm one of those people that has to have it. However, I have to say that we were pleasantly comfortable without A/C, and the trade winds varied from very windy to non-existent during our stay.
The only things I would recommend for improvement is window coverings over the sliding glass doors in both master bedrooms, but especially the downstairs one. Not only did we not have privacy, but we couldn't sleep in due ot the fact that the house faces the east and the sun comes in first thing in the morning. I'd also recommend a lounge chair (or two) on the upstairs lanai. The chairs and table were nice, but if there were a lounge chair I definitely could have taken a few siesta's out there!
Overall, it was an incredible house! Great location for sight-seeing on that side of the island, and the kitchen was more than adequately stocked! We made breakfast every morning and ate on the lanai. It's definitely a rental that I would recommend!
