Aloha, We so appreciate your wonderful review of our property! We love the drive, our amenities and the home touches we work diligently to provide. So glad you liked our breakfast and you are right that our breezes often make the room temperate and while Mango does have and air conditioner for those in need...it does have a glorious view!...
