This large condo complex is good for families. There’s even a playground and basketball court next to the pool on the sixth floor, and when kids under 12 arrive, they’re given a beach-related grab bag. If you’re in Tower 2, be aware that some of your “ocean view” may be dominated by Tower 1, if you have a room directly facing that tower.

Aston’s rooms (main agent listed) have been upgraded to a standard look (nothing to rave about, but they’re OK). There’s one thing that got under our skin. They have BBQ grills available, but you’ll have to bring quarters, because they’re coin-operated. Yeah, it’s minor, but it’s annoying. 1/1s (535 sq. ft.) are $405–$485. Hope you did much better.

Koko Resorts is the second listed on-site agent. Their room rates start at about $110 and up per night. All units can be viewed online. Some are good, some fair, but for the money, they are a Solid Gold Value, and they give discounts for longer stays. Optional housekeeping service for a fee. No room safe, but there’s one in the office. They charge a cleaning fee, but they have free Wi-Fi in rooms and free parking. They also lend beach and sports gear such as basketballs, surfboards, etc., for free, so you’ll have to weigh the options. 3- or 5-night minimum for their units.

What Readers Have to Say

“I just wanted to say THANK YOU!!!! I have purchased 3 of your books, Maui, The big Island and Oahu revealed. To find the third one I had to drive to 3 different book stores, but well worth it. You guys are the only writers/locals I will trust. You are so right on with everything!!! Usually when we would go to Hawaii we would never venture off the resort, but because of your books we would eat at the best restaurants(and save money) and visit the best beaches. I also love the fact that you give us so many insider tips, from what to wear, to the time of day to visit something or what roads to take…I only have one suggestion, can you become experts on other places?”
