There were a number of small issues that were attended to efficiently and quickly when they arose. This small gated community has a nostalgic feel of old Hawaii. I could not say there was a beach and while we were there it was too rough for us to get in and snorkel. Obviously others could because we watched them paddle board across the sea in front. The pool is very handy to the property for early morning swims. There is plenty of space and good quality amenities and kitchen equipment.
