We have rented several units through VRBO in the past, in both Hawaii and Mexico, and this was hands down, the nicest, cleanest, best equipped unit we've ever had. The first impression of the complex is that it is older, which is accurate, but the grounds are very well maintained, and both pools were very clean. The residents/guests tend to be a more mature crowd, with the average age being in the 60-65 range, but it's a very friendly group. Make sure you take advantage of the daily "Sunset Club", and watch the sun go down at around 6:15-6:30. Get there early to get a good table, as the longer term residents start to gather at about 5:30. There are also 3 large Weber grills for BBQ'ing that are well used, but never with any wait for cooking space.
The unit itself (with the exception of the stucco outer walls, which likely can't be changed due to condo regs) has been totally updated. The bedroom features a 100% memory foam mattress, which was ridiculously comfortable, and a ceiling fan right over the bed, which makes the AC (which does work great) moot. The bathroom features a separate water closet for the toilet, as well as a tiled shower and new washer/dryer, and no issues at all with hot water. The kitchen is fully redone, and very well stocked. My only "complaint" would be that there was no way to fully turn off the wine fridge (which we didn't need) and I felt bad wasting electricity, which is expensive in HI. The lanai is very private, and although it doesn't get mcuh sun, was a more than comfortable place to eat breakfast every day.
An added benefit was a nice collection of beach chairs, mats, coolers, umbrellas and boogie boards, which made our almost daily trips up to Hapuna Beach much more enjoyable.
I'd recommend this unit to just about anyone, with the possible exception being those with young children. There just aren't many of them around the complex, and the overall atmosphere is quiet, so the normal noise that your kids would make would stand out, and might make you self conscious.
Thanks for a great stay to Ron & Natasha. Booking was effortless, and with the electronic door lock system, there were no issues with getting keys from someone, leading to a stress free arrival.
