The Love Shack was a great place to stay and call home while we were there for almost two weeks!!
Check-in: The check in experience was great. We were greeted right away and we're given a thorough intro of the property, rules, and parking placard. Get a roll of quarters for laundry if you plan wash clothes. Condo Unit - Upon entering the unit, it was clean and dust free. The kitchen and living room was also clean. The slider to the balcony opens up to an angled view of the ocean and common areas including the putting green, BBQ area, and pool. The bathroom and bedroom are to the right upon entering. You have to go through the bathroom to get to the bedroom. For a couple who are staying, like myself, this will work just fine. But if you plan to stay with another couple, you'll need to devise a plan to share the bathroom since anyone in the bedroom can enter the bathroom, even if someone is already in there. Otherwise, it didn't bother us and worked fine. Amenities & Grounds - As mentioned above, there is a putting green, BBQ area with 5 separate grills, pool area with spa, shuffle board, volleyball court and a vast green area big enough to play football. Just beyond the green area and over a small berm, the beach awaits! You have assigned parking and is close to the entrance and elevators. Trash chutes are on every level towards the front of the building (street side). Laundry rooms are on every other floor, but isn't on the same floor as this unit. There is 24 hour security as I see them walking the grounds regularly and made us feel secure. Things Around the Area: Obviously you can drive to anything you need, but there were many areas that are walkable if you choose. Within 1 mile: McDonalds Azeka Makai Plaza (Longs Drugs, Taco Bell, Maui Pie, etc) Times Supermarket (includes many "ethnic" foods) There's also a short 3 minute drive to the Piilani Village shopping center for Star Bucks, 808 Grindz Cafe, Ruby Tuesdays, and Outback Steakhouse. Having the Love Shack as "Ground Zero" was wonderful with so many conveniences nearby. It's also much more quieter than the busy Lahaina area of the island. We had a great experience and we're so sad to leave. Thank you Fred for sharing your home with us!! Lastly, for folks who would like to know what to buy or not before you check in, the unit already has the following: Freezer Gel packs, ice chest, ice trays (3), dish washing soap, dish sponge, dish washer packs, pots, pans, dishes, silverware, toilet paper (3 rolls), paper towel (1 roll), body bar soap (1), 3 trash bags.
