Aloha spirit on Kam III Beach!
Three adults and four young children found the unit comfortable and clean -- there are pull-out sofas and a murphy bed which made it easy for the kids to pile up like they were having an overnight party, leaving the two bedrooms for the adults. There was plenty of bedding for everyone. The kitchen is well-stocked with equipment and the property BBQs are right downstairs and super convenient. There were plenty of condiments left by previous guests, in some rentals I've noticed housekeeping takes the leftover stuff and then we have to buy everything all over again. Thanks to Carol for leaving the condiments! There was plenty of seating for our group of seven, with two sofas and various comfortable chairs as well as a dining room table. The lanai is on the smaller side, but located right over the property's ponds and fountain, and so has a lovely view. I spent a lot of time out there listening to the mynah birds! The unit has very comfortable beds and good quality bedding, which I appreciated very much. It was also quiet and except for another guest who was smoking somewhere nearby, it was a great place to hang out in between beach and pool activities. The owner, Sandi, and her property manager, Carol, were very concerned about the smoker and did everything they could to get property staff to find the culprit (they will be gone by now, so don't worry about smoke -- it was a guest, not a condo owner). Overall, this problem was abated by turning on fans but I appreciated that Sandi was easy to contact and is so helpful. Overall, it's a HUGE benefit when the property owner is so communicative and helpful and I would rent from them again in a heartbeat. There are air conditioners in both bedrooms (much appreciated) and a central unit in the living room that works on a timer, which is very convenient. However, there is a great cross breeze if the front door and lanai door are opened and we were comfortable with just that most of the time. This unit is a stone's throw from Kam III which is one of the nicer beaches, and it was so convenient - we were so glad to be close to the front of the property as it made it very easy to get to the beach. There are also beach supplies on the lanai, and plenty of beach towels. Sandi, Mahalo for your kindness, being such a responsive condo owner and being so friendly - I hope to be back soon!
