William V. from Evergreen, Colorado does not recommend this property. Stayed for 7 days in February, 2017 Location was great but the amenities were lacking. No doors on the bedroom or bathroom. Sliding glass door almost impossible to open. Lack of soap-one little bar for a week. Short on toilet paper, the book says two rolls but we only had one and had to "steal" additional TP wherever we went or stay on the pot forever. No bread knife. No cookie sheets to place a pizza on to cook. The lower bathroom had constant problem, maintenance tried to fix but was unsuccessful. Wine glass had a crack, should have been trashed. Lastly, a dead, rotting chicken leg was found in a cooler.
A guest from Sandpoint, ID recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in January, 2017 We enjoyed every aspect of our stay at the Sealodge J1 condo. It is a quiet peaceful setting with a beautiful view looking out over the ocean. The condo has all the amenities that are needed and has been well cared for.Thank You!
Angela H. from Zionsville, IN recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in January, 2017 We stayed at two units at Sealodge--We loved G9, but it was a one-bedroom/one bath. J1 is two bedroom/two bath and has almost as good as a location--both are right on the ocean with incredible views. J1 was obviously recently updated--everything looked brand-new. It was clean and comfortable. We loved the brand-new full-size washer and dryer (a lot of condos have those miniature stackables). The kitchen was fantastic, including a dishwasher. All in all, we'd definitely recommend J1 and would stay there again.
A guest from Crookston, MN recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in January, 2017 This condo was as described in the rental information. The location for attractions on the North side of the island was good. There was a small shopping area very close to the property where you could get groceries. There are several beaches on the north end that were close by. The drive to the lighthouse was also close. If you wanted to spend the day on the South end of the island plan on spending the day there. Traffic can be a bit of a drag certain times of the day. Overall we were happy with the property. The kitchen was modestly supplied with cooking equipment (pots, pans, mixing/storage bowls) A door on the main floor bathroom would certainly be a plus.
Suzanne E. from Salt Lake City, UT recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in December, 2016 We had a wonderful time staying at the Sea Lodge in Unit J1. The building is the first building you come to as you enter the property, but the unit has a wonderful view not only of the ocean, but of the coastline and of the Kilauea Lighthouse in the distance. We loved having our morning tea out on the lanai and sitting in the window seat every day looking out to sea and watching the chickens and roosters roam around the grass just outside the window. The condo was set up with everything we needed and was the perfect size. We enjoyed chilling out at "home" after a long day of exploring, so having a kitchen and a smart tv were wonderful. The owners have provided beach chairs and an umbrella which we were really grateful for. We would definitely stay here again.
Tambra L. from Cheyenne, WY recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in September, 2016 This little place is a great deal for the money. You would be hard pressed to find a more beautiful location. It has a very nice washer and dryer, which is essential for an extended stay. The deck has a spectacular view. You can lie on your side in either bedroom and enjoy a breathtaking sunrise.
David D. from Irvine, California recommends this property. Stayed for 14 days in June, 2016 Great location,lot of amenities, especially the beach gear (beach chairs were awesome). Lamp shade in downstairs bedroom needs replacement. Need more powerful electric fans and patio door to lanai is very difficult to open and close (off track, I believe), but other than that the kitchen was pretty well supplied. Microwave did spark a couple times and seems like it is on it's last leg (quite loud).
MIKE S. from SANGER, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 9 days in May, 2016 We enjoyed waking up every morning to the beautiful view of the Sunrise peaking over the Kilauea Lighthouse. The 2 Bedroom condo was roomy and spacious for the 3 of us that stayed there for 9 days. All the amenities needed were provided (and also some extras - boogie boards, beach chairs, beach towels and snorkeling gear). Things that it does need: sharp knives, bigger pot and frying pans, better fans in DS bedroom and living room and maybe an ice chest for trips to the beach?Very pleased with our stay and look forward to our next trip! Definitely will refer our friends to this Condo for location and affordability. PS - the wildlife outside our lanae was amazing! Hawaiian Nenes (ducks), myna birds, java sparrows, red-crested cardinal, spotted dove and of course Kauai roosters and chickens!
A guest from Encinitas, CA does not recommend this property. Stayed for 4 days in April, 2016 The view was lovely. The pictures do not match up with the property. Personally owning a ski rental house for more than 20 years I found several things lacking in your rental. There were no coffee filters, then buy a gold filter so your guests don't have to run to store. There was no ice, ice machine broken. No salt and pepper or any condiments what so ever. We came from Poipu side where everything was first class. There is no privacy in this extremely small unit. It is advertised as end unit, but the units next door look into this unit. There was roof repair.siding repair-no one gave us any warning whatsoever. Lists of do this do that, but NO reciprocated respect.
Bill F. from Lewes, DE recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in February, 2016 Our condo had an amazing view, with Laysan Albatross flying by close overhead every day. We are birders and also saw over two dozen White-tailed Tropicbirds plus 100's of Red-footed Boobies. Snorkeling nearby at Anini reef we viewed very close Green Turtles and colorful local reef fish in calm waters even with high surf outside the reef.
Thibault P. from San Francisco, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in November, 2015 We stayed there for thanksgiving with 3 friends. House was very nice, kitchen fully stocked, plenty of space for 4-5 guests. Great location, close to Hanalei and the Napali coast trail. This unit does feel like a small cottage!
Leo M. from Olney, MD recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in October, 2015 We loved our visit to Kauai. Our condo was exactly as advertised and in great shape. We loved our view and the quiet. The location was also great for our island explorations. We would definitely stay there again.
Maintenance, safety, and lack of amenities outweigh view...
A guest from Fair Oaks, CA does not recommend this property. Stayed for 9 days in September, 2015 There are some very nice things about this rental: It sits on a wonderful bluff, almost by itself, with a fabulous view of the coast and the lighthouse. The beds were comfy, it is furnished nicely, wi-fi was great, TV cable lineup was extensive, and there is beach gear, BBQ stuff and even binoculars available. However there are serious shortcomings: The dryer was broken and only worked intermittently and when I called they said someone would be out to fix it and they never showed up. The iron didn?t work so that water leaked all over my clothes. The refrigerator?s ice maker did not work and when we arrived there was no ice in the trays. The toaster barely worked and we had to hold it down to make a bagel. There are two frying pans and the largest was maybe 8 inches, enough to fry one egg. Without any large covered fry pans you cannot make fish, etc. They do not provide any coffee filters so you have to use paper towels or figure out what size they are and go buy a hundred at Foodland to make coffee. The broiler was inadequate and it took me 30-40 minutes to broil a steak. The worst part was that the screens are old and do not fit snugly so mosquitoes came in at night; plus, If it rains the water comes in the screens so you have to close the windows and suffocate since there is no AC, only fans. The downstairs bedroom smelled moldy. The stairwell, which is steep and narrow is completely unlit so bring a flashlight or risk falling down it unless you turn on all the upstairs bedroom lights. The upstairs bathroom shower had no bathmat or materials to stop one from slipping as you shower. The windows and doors are partially broken, hard to open, and needed maintenance badly. The lock on the front door is old, and since you do not get a key, you cannot really see it to open the door at night even with the porch light on. The owner needs to fix many basic things. I will not be back to this unit, suggest you consider another.
Jimm E. from Maple Valley, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in August, 2015 Our stay at Sealodge was wonderful! The view was amazing and the condo was very comfortable and quiet. It was close to Hanalei and Anini Beaches where we spent most of our time. The best part was anything and everything you needed to spend a day at the beach was there - beach towels, chairs, cooler everything. We were very impressed! Would definitely stay again and hope to get back as soon as possible!
Tina M. from Sacramento, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2015 We stayed at Sealodge J1 in July 2015. The condo was in a quiet location with excellent views. I was worried about the accordion door for the main floor bedroom but it wasn't an issue. Ended up never closing it anyway. Upstairs loft/bedroom/bathroom was roomy. Perfect for my 18 year old son. The punae bed was a very cozy spot to read on a rainy day. Great location to decompress from life.Things I appreciated: beautiful fresh tropical flower arrangement on our table; 2 coolers, 4 beach chairs, 4 beach towels, & 4 boogie boards for our use; big closets with LOTS of hangers (like 50 per closet); hair dryers in both bathrooms; lots of shelves for toiletries in the downstairs shower; empty medicine cabinets in both bathrooms to put away our stuff; well stocked kitchen.Very minor issues/suggestions: Charcoal BBQ's were a bit of a walk, not very convenient. Needed a vegetable steamer insert.
Tony S. from Porter, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in June, 2015 Overall, it was good. We had some minor bug problems, but I understand that is an issue everywhere. There were no paper towels at the facility and the light over the kitchen table did not work. I tried changing the bulb, but that did not fix the problem. Had another outlet that also did not work.
A guest from Saint Peters, MO recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in June, 2015 Was disappointed that I didn't read that there was no air conditioning. It's not bad if you have the windows open and fans blowing. But when you leave for the day, you have to close everything up and it gets warmer than I liked. Maybe a different part of the year would have been better to visit. Personally, I won't stay here again, but the place was nice and quaint and exactly as described in the write up
A guest from Bainbridge Island, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in March, 2015 J1 is a beautifully remodeled, well-furnished condo with an outstanding location/view. We appreciated the fresh cut flowers on the dining table when we arrived. Ahh Aloha personnel were quick to repair the "sticky" sliding door and rescreen the screen door. Suggestions: taller reading lamps, in the bedrooms and living room, each with 2 100W CFL bulbs; replace the coffee table with one without a glass top that "hangs over" the frame and is easy to bump into. Safety: railings on both sides of the interior stairs improves the safety greatly. We had a wonderful time in J1!
A guest from Rochester, NY recommends this property. Stayed for 14 days in March, 2015 Great location & view. We had a good time and I was very satisfied with this rental property. Older building but updated inside. Clean, lots of amenities for a vacation plus some beach extras. We had a couple issues which were quickly handled. Also had an issues figuring out wireless internet, but we had our own connection, so didn't try to hard to get it working.
Craig P. from Saskatoon, SK recommends this property. Stayed for 14 days in February, 2015 It was a great vacation, your directions were dead on and made it really easy to find. The rental had everything we could need we did purchase a couple of things but thats just us. Loved the beach chairs and towels, the in unit laundry facilities were great. The view is outstanding and J1 is really a private unit as described. The whale watching everyday is amazing and our daily visit from the rooster affectionately named Joe and Mary along with Nena's Al and Alvira made morning coffee enjoyable. Gas Grills of course are preferable but we understand they have their challenges so charcoal was fine. Only one small suggestion, the knives could use a sharpening other than that it was great.
A guest from Nailsworth, South Australia recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in February, 2015 We had a lovely and relaxing four days on Kauai. Our accommodation at Sealodge J1 was ideal for our needs. We were two couples and one single which worked out well. Everything was spotless and the vase of fresh flowers was a wonderful surprise; and then to step out the back door and see the limitless expanse of the Pacific ocean stretched out before you was breathtaking. And then to top it off, out to sea, a spray of mist and a shiny black hump appearing and disappearing: a humpback whale! The visiting nene geese, rooster & hens, cardinals, sparrows, and two magnificent albatross all provided entertaining distractions while enjoying the scene. We hired bikes & cycled along the bike trail at Kapa'a, canoed the Hanalei River, spent an afternoon listening to Hawaiian slack key guitar and enjoyed a wonderful dinner at the Postcard Café in Hanalei. So many things to see and do. Swimming at the Queen's bath was a highlight; a rare treat in February as it was a perfectly calm day. We are happy to recommend this venue to anyone looking for somewhere to relax and unwind.
Beverly J. from Salem, Oregon recommends this property. Stayed for 13 days in January, 2015 i hesitate to give a good review because I don't want everyone else to know about this beautiful getaway. Whales every morning with our coffee, quiet, reasonably private. We prepared most of our meals in the condo kitchen. There is a nice crock pot so you can put dinner on and have it ready when you return from your day adventures. It's kind of a long drive on narrow, windy roads if you want to go south. Same for travel west, but not as far.
James T. from Seattle, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in December, 2014 Sealodge J1 is as advertised. It's a beautiful and quiet spot with a wide view of the ocean and reef below. The condo is well appointed. They emphasize quiet which we appreciate. The people next door were quiet though we could still hear them from the bedroom. So, it would be difficult if the people were noisy. Same with the house directly next door, if they were noisy it would be difficult. The property rental people are a bit over the top with the 7 page agreement but I get it. But, it was the opposite when we rented on the South Shore they were very low key nothing to sign. And, we made sure we washed towels so as not to be charged and extra $15. But, we really loved the place and those were minor issues. The owner was very nice when I called her when I booked it. The Ahh Aloha property agents were also good communicators.
Rita T. from Markham, ON recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in December, 2014 It was a beautiful two-bedroom house with a backyard overlooking the ocean. We woke up after the first night to an amazing view of the sun rise. The house was fully furnished with all the bedding and amenities (i.e. two large TVs, kitchenware, books, games and puzzles, beach towels, and bathroom linens) needed for a comfortable stay. Everything was very organized and easy to find. The only thing missing was oven mitts. Overall, an excellent experience and we're very happy that we chose to stay at this house for our vacation. Can't wait to go back. Would highly recommend it to anyone.
Annie-Kate F. from San Diego, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in November, 2014 This place was perfect for what we needed. Quiet space, amazing view, kitchen, and easy access to the towns. We would sit out at sunset and enjoy dnner together, wake up to the sunrise. This is the place to relax!
Sealodge J 1 May 2-16, 2014 multiple stays this location
Robert J. from Carmel Valley, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 14 days in May, 2014 I have booked with Ahh Aloha numerous times and we are generally always satisfied. Have stayed in this unit multiple times. We had a rather rainy yet beautiful stay and would like to have watched a little TV. Called and emailed our first week but were not successful. Directions in condo are for a Sharp TV not in unit for many years. An old tube TV. One day Someone did come to unit and left lights on so there was a response but no note or communication about non functioning set. Never able to use it. This never happened before. Unit could use new set of pans. Old Teflon sets pretty gross. Some Tupperware for leftovers would be great too. Carpet could use cleaning and dining chairs have some sharp points on bottom that are tearing carpet in multiple spots. Just some simple inexpensive fixes would make for a better experience. Also wonder where the larger TV in place a year ago went to???
A guest from Vancouver, British Columbia recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in April, 2014 Overall great experience. The view from the patio is really the highlight of this condo. The actual condo requires some upgrading to charge their current rates- I don't think the place has changed in decades, nor have the knives been sharpened, bed covers updated, etc...
MARILYN A. from TACOMA, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in April, 2014 The view was amazing. To open the curtains and see the sun and the ocean. The walk to the beach was quick and fun. The peacefulness of the location was lovely.
A guest from New Westminster, BC does not recommend this property. Stayed for 7 days in April, 2014 This was our third stay at Sealodge in the past three years. We enjoy the location - great view, low key vibe, short hike to Sealodge beach and affordable units. This was our first stay at J1 and found it a little tired. The condo is situated nicely in that it's a ground floor unit with no units above it. The view toward the lighthouse and Anini reef are beautiful, as is the sunrise view. The condition of the unit is not ideal. The carpets are visibly dirty, the furniture feels sticky and the closet off the main floor bedroom is filled with gear, making it difficult to use. It's certainly not all bad, we did appreciate the new HE laundry and updated kitchen counters. I also had some concern regarding security. This particular unit doesn't have any additional locks aside from the door code, which seems to be unchanged year after year. The previous unit we've stayed in had a lock and chain that could be used as well. Some of the window locks are no longer functioning and there are sticks in the window sills to prevent them from being fully opened. That being said, I didn't feel unsafe - it would just be nice to have a bit more security.These are mostly just details. We had an enjoyable vacation, will probably return to Sealodge, but not necessarily J1.
Tom K. from Grandville, MI recommends this property. Stayed for 14 days in January, 2014 Loved the Princeville location, having also stayed in in Poipu in the past. We love to hike, photograph, and, in general, hang out at the beaches. Hanalei Bay drew us back time and again. Sea Lodge, while older, is well maintained and quiet. With the surf below our lanai and spectacular sunrises, what's not to love? Suggest only seating with better lumbar support and greater height from the floor. We made it work, though, and would happily return. Thanks to the owners and Ahh Aloha for a wonderful stay.
Lucinda S. from Dana Point, CA does not recommend this property. Stayed for 20 days in November, 2013 1. Downstairs bathroom did not have a door on it--only a curtain across it which could be seen from the living room--not very private!. And the curtain had blood stains on it.2) Not one knife in the kitchen was sharper than a butter knife---difficult to prepare meals3. Only 2 wine glasses! Guests had to enjoy wine out of juice glasses. Kitchen Cooking pans, etc minimal.4. Because we are movie buffs we selected a unit w/ a 40" TV. When we arrived the TV did not work; the "owner" said they did not want to replace the TV (upstairs TV did not work either). I asked to be moved to a different unit; a 28" was put in---after spending $2600+ for our time there I would have thought that the owner could have afforded to put in more than a TV that cost less than $200. 5. WiFi did not work Disappointed in overall experience. Would not recommend this unit to anyone.
A guest from Ames, IA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in November, 2013 We had a great condo with a wonderful view of the ocean and lighthouse. Had great sunrises. Rained more than we would have liked, but we knew that could be the case, so it didn't prevent us from doing what we wanted. The king sized bed was lumpy, but the queen sized one up in the loft was great. A problem with one TV was dealt with quickly when we called management. We would choose this location again if we could ever return.
A guest from Waterford, VT recommends this property. Stayed for 9 days in October, 2013 The condo was great! Nothing luxurious or anything, but very clean and it was in a great location! The view was fantastic with the lighthouse across the bay and the sea breeze was very relaxing. The concierge was very helpful, she gave a cell phone number to text and was always very quick to respond. We would definitely stay again!
A guest from Friday Harbor, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 11 days in June, 2013 The property is situated in a beautiful location with remarkable views. It is well- appointed with everything needed for a stay. Our only problem was poor telephone connections to the modem. Therefore, it was hit and miss with dead phones and no Internet. It should be an easy fix.
Kathleen P. from Riverside, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in May, 2013 I highly recommend that you invest in new bedding. It was very basic and getting old. Other than that, the view was amazing, and the condo was acceptable. My family enjoyed their stay very much.
Robert J. from Carmel Valley, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 14 days in May, 2013 Another wonderful stay. We have been at this unit and many others over the years and relish this location the most. Isolation in complex, pool and siting of unit are great. Ahh Aloha, Sandy and her staff are nice to work with. Big mahalos. Lots of ocean accessories in unit this stay, a pleasant surprise. We will book here again. Only critiques are carpet seems to take a beating with rental traffic as do kitchen pans. Some non Teflon ones would be welcomed. These Hawaiians at heart will be back if you'll have us, Aloha for now
Property Manager Response: Response from Ahh Aloha Kauai Vacation Rentals Love to have you back any time!!
Mary R. from Verona, WI recommends this property. Stayed for 30 days in February, 2013 J-1 is a well maintained,clean and nicely furnished/decorated condo with a beautiful view of 'Anini beach and Kilauea lighthouse. Other Sealodge condo's might have a somewhat nicer veiw but that is minor and a matter of preference. Don't really care for the "drapery" doors on bathrooms but again, our preference. We had a notice on an electric bill but the Ahh Aloha contact person and the owner gave a wonderful response with immediate action to correct the issue. Very impressive and professional. We would definately stay here again.
A guest from Arlington, VA recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in November, 2012 My husband and I really enjoyed our stay here. I would say the unit is nicer in person than in the pics. Well appointed, up to date, and quiet. Some fruit flies and minor mold in downstairs shower, but otherwise very clean. And BEAUTIFUL VIEWS.The unit is on the quieter north shore. For convenience and night life stay on the east or south part of the island. For rest, relaxation, some great hikes, beautiful lush beaches, and tasty restaurants, this is the place to be.
A guest from Hollister, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2012 It was so nice having an end unit with no one above us. I loved the patio and lawn that lead to the edge of the bluff and ocean views to die for! The kitchen was nicely appointed, bit there was very little counter space due to the microwave on the counter. There was no exhaust fan above the stove, so maybe a microwave about the stove would be a better idea? Also really could've used an exhaust fan in the bathroom...Other than that, the place was great! Can't wait to come back.
Richard C. from Redding, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in May, 2012 Sealodge J-1 was perfect for our needs---clean, quiet, private. The weather was splendid all 8 days, and we thoroughly enjoyed Sealodge Beach, the Kalalau Trail, Tunnels Beach for snorkeling, Anini Beach, Queen's Bath, Secret Lava Pools, Kilauea Lighthouse, Scotty's BBQ in Kapaa, and strolling through Princeville in the evening. Foodland was close and convenient,and Hanalei's farmers' market was interesting. A few more pots/pans/knives would have made cooking more convenient, but that was a minor issue. Overall, well pleased and would certainly stay there again.
Steve S. from Cogan Station, PA recommends this property. Stayed for 9 days in April, 2012 Very good location. Convenient to stores, activities, and beaches. Nicely decorated and furnished. And of course there's the million dollar view.
Zeva L. from Sun Valley, ID recommends this property. Stayed for 29 days in February, 2012 My 90 year old mom and I rented J for a whole month.I love to boogie board she loves to read and explore the area on foot. It was a good and challenging walk for her to the village of Princeville, but she did it. I enjoyed taking the chair yoga class and Linda's toning class at the community center and meeting new friends. The sun rises from the condo was magnificent. The place is good for 2 people who are used to having space. Bring your own knives though. They are dull. The neighbors are great. and the landscaping. Visited the beach down a steep path which is a beautiful walk.
Arden H. from Island Park, ID recommends this property. Stayed for 15 days in February, 2012 The view of Anni Beach, the light house and sound of the crushing waves through your window says it all. The complex is secluded at the end of road on a bluff overlooking the ocean. The units are a bit long in the tooth but the location, tranquility and value makes up for it. Would not for recommend two couples, unless you are family as units are fairly open. Beds are good, kitchen adequate, storage limited, Outdoor cooking area poor. The unit has boogie boards, and other beach gear. This is my 7th visit to Kauai and 18th to the islands.AH
joanie h. from post falls, ID recommends this property. Stayed for 12 days in January, 2012 Our stay a Sealodge was wonderful. The condo was very comfortable, homey and safe feeling. The only down side was the distance to the beach at Sealodge. We were told it was a 10 min. walk to the beach but it was more like 30 min. plus its was very rocky and narrow in areas, not a path I would want to have to bring small children along. Staying in Princeville was a perfect location for us. We were close to everything we wanted to do. The whale watching was amazing. Drinking coffee in the morning and watching the whales splashing in the not to far distance was something I'll never forget. I look forward to staying there again.
A guest from Vancouver, BC does not recommend this property. Stayed for 8 days in January, 2012 Princeville was not our cup of tea. We loved the north shore, but this town/village full of condos and nothing else was too cookie cutter for us. Next time we would rent something on the beach in Hanalei. The condo itself was dated and definitely not ideal for a honeymoon. Likely good for families and older couples. View from lanai was spectacular, but that was really the only pro.
Robert H. from Broomfield, CO recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in December, 2011 Three of us stayed in unit J1 with family and friends occupying 4 other units. Our unit definitely had the most room and semi-flat area out the back patio (a big plus). Princeville provided groceries, and shops for about everything we needed during our vacation.
Marina G. from Kaluga, Kaluzhskaya recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in November, 2011 Rented a villa in November 2011 for 5 days. The district has made a great impression Prinsvil, elegant and safe location. Villa with ocean views, quiet and peaceful place for families.Deficiencies in the placement of the following: bed linen wrinkled, entrance lock must open with two hands, the door to the terrace and the bedroom floor of a poorly closed.
Russ B. from Itasca, Illinois recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in October, 2011 Quite nice, very clean & quiet. The light from the distant Lighthouse may keep some awake.Make sure you leave the porch light on if you go out in the evening, as you will not be able to get back in without a flashlight - the door opens using a keypad (which you must see to use) and there is no Management on the property after-hours to assist you.
A guest from Mill Valley, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2011 We enjoyed our stay at Sealodge J1. The condo was stocked with everything we could ever need (with an exception of a spatula). We made very good use of the beach chairs and mats. The view was just lovely. The kitchen and the the washer/dryer seemed pretty new. One note: the downstairs bathroom is covered by a curtain. If you need more privacy, close the bedroom shade. Overall, it was a great place to come home to after hanging out in the beach all day. Mahalo!!!
Kevin S. from Santa Clara, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in April, 2011 Very nice property. Excellent location. However if you're planning on cooking some meals be prepared to buy EVERYTHING at the store. Things like plastic wrap,bags,and foil are not available for saving any food. Salt and pepper are about all you will find in the kitchen. The Barbecue is not gas so you will need to purchase charcoal if you're planning to grill. We would love to stay here again in the future and would highly recommend this property.
Robert P. from Plano, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in October, 2010 My wife and I stayed here for three days and loved it. We felt right at home and could relax. It did not feel like a hotel where you feel like you're winging it or the only thing to use it for is to sleep. Instead this place was enjoyable just hanging out there with the ocean view/breeze. Very close to grocery store and well stocked/equipped enough to do our own cooking. No annoying roosters waking us up at 4am like other places we stayed at.Just two small criticisms - first there are a lot of centipeds crawling around the place. Woke up one night with one crawling up my leg. Second - it would be nice if the place was stoked with salt, pepper and sugar.
Robert S. from Carmel Valley, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 12 days in August, 2010 The washing machine needs replacing. It runs extremely noisy, so much so, that while spinning, even with a small load, it can be heard outside 50 yards away. Also, we replaced can opener, even though it was broken upon arrival. Note it took 3 phone calls to get the pool passcode. It wasn't on any information sheet from anyone
ocean view, clean, tasteful, quiet, great location.
A guest from Concord, MA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2010 We had a beautiful week at Sea lodge, the two bedrooms and living rooms all had ocean views. The breeze was refreshing. The condo was clean, the art work tasteful. The property was well maintained. the pool was clean and the other guests were considerate of quite hours. The little private beach was a fun jungle walk along a small cliff to wonderful snorkeling. Great location very close to wild places.
Michael S. from North Bend, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in May, 2010 fantastic place to stay...on the best side of the island to visit. very quite, as it sits at the end of a private drive so there is no through-traffic. nice pool and large brick barbeque pit with picnic table to use. the condo had 2 nice big flat screen tv's and was loaded with lots of extras such as snorkel gear, boogie boards, sand buckets and shovels for kids, beachtowels, mats, and many other things. terrific view of annini beach....and a great secluded beach within a short walk ( sealodge beach ). Will definitely be staying here on our next visit for sure.
John B. from Tempe, AZ recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in April, 2010 Sea Lodge beach is wonderful. The path down was a little muddy because of the rains but it was worth it to have the beautiful beach almost to ourselves.
