Amazing View of Wailua Bay
We had a very good stay in unit 207 of the Wailua Bay View condos. The views are simply amazing and the sound of the surf was wonderful to relax and fall asleep to. The location is very good in terms of easy access to all other parts of the island and there are some terrific little local restaurants within walking distance (try Passion Bakery for their mac nut sticky bun and the enchiladas at Monico's Mexican restaurant!). The slight downside is the pool area is on the side of the building which is right next to the highway so it's not super peaceful. The bedroom in the condo is also on the highway side of the condo so if you are a light sleeper the traffic noise may be of issue but it didn't bother us as we could still hear the surf from the bedroom and that put us right to sleep. The condo itself is pretty dated but it was spotlessly clean with one exception...the carpet. The carpet is a pale (and ugly) green that looks like underlay, not carpet. And it is filthy. I would say it desperately needs to be cleaned, but I will take it one step further and say it desperately needs to be replaced. Upon entering the condo for the first time, the first thing we both noticed was the dirty trail on the carpet that you could see from the front door leading down the hallway to the kitchen and the living room. Thank goodness we kept walking in and saw those views...the views are what made us sort of overlook the carpet and focus on the great lanai and views. There is a/c in the bedroom only, but for the first time EVER on a tropical vacation we did not need to use it. The trade winds that blow through the condo when you have the lanai windows open and the bedroom/front door windows open darn near creates a wind tunnel that kept the condo comfortably cool. That was great. All in all we would stay in this building again for sure, but we may try and find a different unit that has better/cleaner flooring.
