Eleven condo buildings scattered around 13 acres of pretty grounds fronting a narrow beach. Some garden view units overlook pretty koi ponds. Your resort fee gives you access to weekly mai tai parties and fitness classes like yoga, tai chi, swimmersize, etc., as well as a weekly putting tournament on their putting greens. There’s also shuffleboard here.

Studios here have a good layout and feel larger than their 454 sq. ft. Some 2/2s have a loft as well. Rooms vary considerably. Bathrooms have small tubs at the bottom of showers. The front desk is not associated with Aston and may or may not be able to help you with problems, but the staff is very nice.

The rack rate seems much higher than what it’s worth; hope you got a better deal. Studios (454 sq. ft.) are $435–$519, 1/1s (620 sq. ft.) are $479–$575, 2/1s or 2/2s (861 sq. ft.) are $779–$905, 3/2s (1,217 sq. ft.) are $929–$1,005. Chase ‘n Rainbows (second agent listed above) also has units here for much less money, but you may not have access to some of the amenities, and you still pay the $17-a-day facility fee. Room amenities from them may also vary.

What Readers Have to Say

“My family met in Oahu for the week before Christmas from all over (my husband and I from Maryland, my sister and brother from Texas, and my parents are currently living in China). We were so thoroughly impressed with the details (and humor) that you provided in ‘Oahu Revealed;’ we actually referred to your book as “The Big Book of Fun.” We never left the house without the “Big Book of Fun.” The maps, the advice, the commentaries were all so incredibly helpful!… Thank you so much for everything you provided in the “Big Book of Fun;” the success of our vacation in paradise had a lot to do with your assistance.”
