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

“Your book, Hawaii The Big Island Revealed, made our first vacation to the Hawaiian Islands a trip to remember. Every recommendation for food or hiking, or photo op was right on…thank you! We used your App on my iPad in combination with the book and loved the fact we could find “things” nearby and get a review on them. Storefront photos were a great help so we had an idea what we were looking for. We saw a few restaurants advertising “as mentioned in The Big Island Revealed” and smiled knowingly at other travellers (lots) clutching their copy of your guidebook.”
