188 units, 3 lighted tennis courts, BBQs, pool, free wi-fi in most, washer/dryer in unit. There are older townhouses and newer condos. Huge variation in rooms here, even among the condos. Buildings 1–5 have outstanding units with incredible locations. On the other hand, some of the buildings have tacky rooms. The townhouse units are older, but many have been upgraded. Some may be more weathered and get a bit buggy. Townhouses numbered 1–5 and 170–199 are on the lava coastline with commanding views. Those numbered 1–13 have access to a lightly used, grey sand beach with ancient petroglyphs and refurbished heiau, where turtles commonly rest along the shoreline. A note on the oceanfront townhomes—their lanais are pulled up against the building during high surf, closing off all the windows on the first floor and making them feel very dark and cave-like. The swimming pool is larger than most condo pools. There are several interesting archaeological sites on the grounds. Tennis is a big deal here, and they have a tennis pro on site. End units (not in the townhouses) have wonderful wraparound lanais. 1/1 units (700 sq. ft.) are $95–$150, 2/2 units (1,175 sq. ft.) are $150–$225, 3/2 units (1,300 sq. ft.) are $125–$200. 3-night minimum. Kona Coast Vacations also has units here.
