Great central location for families with children
The owner Kevin is very knowledgeable about the area and has great suggestions for activities, dining and sightseeing for all age groups and abilities. He checked in with us a few times during our stay to make sure everything was going well. The location was perfect, about a 5 minute drive from Kaanapali Beach (Whalers Village, Kaanapali Beach Hotel and other resorts on the beach) and 7-8 minute drive to Lahaina and Napili. The area was nice and quiet and my 5yr old loved the playground across the street. (I felt very safe in the neighborhood as a single parent and walked a lot of places... Even left our rental car unlocked the whole time without incident!) The public beach access across the street was calm and protected by rocks from the waves and water about knee deep.The sandy beach was clean (and rarely crowded) and the park bbqs used by locals in the evenings. Everyone was friendly and we saw amazing sunsets from the beach. The condo was on the ground floor and the kitchen recently remodeled and new beds in the rooms. The condo didn't get too much direct sun which helped keep it cool. There are fans in every room and got good breezes off the ocean but no air conditioning (it didn't bother us, but I like warm weather). I wished there was a little more water pressure but it's an older building (1960s?) so probably normal. There was a young girl (3?)in the condo above us who had a couple of tantrums I could hear but not during quiet hours and I'm sure she will grow out of it. The Wi-Fi had 3 different ways to connect and took me a bit to figure out but I'm not tech savvy. With the two of us online and the tv on we occasionally saw slowing with the speeds in the evenings but not unbearable. Lots of beach items provided- mats, chairs, boogie boards and sand buckets.Well stocked kitchen with pans pots etc and nice system of dating unused condiments for the next guests (sharpies above the coffee maker) so happy to find coffee and creamer in the AM when we got in past midnight!! Grocery store was a 5 minute walk away and small but entertaining farmers market next door with samples :) Condo was clean and saw occasional sugar ants but as long as the water was wiped up and food cleaned up they weren't an issue. Overall a great location for my 5yr old and I to relax and spend time together and we can't wait to come back!
