380 Papaloa Rd.
24 units, pool, bbq area, coin-op laundry, free Wi-Fi in units and by pool. This is a very good bargain. They have small oceanfront studios (some have a pull down Murphy bed—these are recommended for more living space). Small, but they make good use of space for $150. For this price you are as close as 30 feet from the water on a pretty beach. Resident offshore turtles will keep you entertained at dusk. What a deal! The property feels very intimate and tropical. The aerial photo makes it look like some of the oceanfront units (#1–14) are blocked by trees, but the crowns of the trees are above the ocean plane. Nice staff here. Studios (approx. 380 sq. ft.) are $90–$135 (definitely spring for the oceanfront), 2/2 units have a two-story layout (728 sq. ft.) and are $130–$185. 3- or 7-night minimum.
