You might find more info on this property by looking up "Pat's at Punaluu." I believe that is (was?) the name of the appartment structure itself, and the vacation rentals are various units in that structure.

BennyB,

Pat's at Punaluu is the name of the building..or rather was a long time ago.

People should know that there are different rental agents that have units in the building, and not all the units are kept to the same standards.

We stayed at the Kapakai Hale U'uku Paradise (Seaside) Cottage at Gigi's Paradise in the spring of 2008.

Basically, we got what we paid for. We would have expected to pay a lot more if the place had been spacious, modern, immaculate, with food service, or with a lot of amusements and restaurants nearby.

Pros: Nice, secluded, sandy beach with shallow, calm waters just feet away from our door. Also, great oceanview - we enjoyed watching the sea turtles swimming along the reef. The king-sized bed was comfortable. Free washing machine and dryer were located in outside closet downstairs. A grocery store, a convenience store, and some restaurants a mile or two away.

Cons: Hot inside cottage during the day (no air conditioning) -- however, we were rarely inside during the day and a nice, cool breeze at night with the sound of the surf made for great sleeping. There was no bathtub and the shower was tiny. Housekeeping could have been a little better at that time - we found a few dead bugs in the closet and the ceiling fan, mini-blinds, and some of the shelves were dusty. Not enough toilet paper (one roll) or dishwashing soap (1/2 of a very small bottle) was provided for a week's stay, so we had to buy more while we were there. However, we had been forewarned about this beforehand in the instructions or rental papers.

We didn't have any children with us on this trip, but some of our very nice neighbors did. Our neighbors were friendly and everyone got along great.

I think the cottage unit we stayed in is an adequate place to stay for those who would rather spend their money on activities than on lodging, or perhaps a couple with one child on a budget.

olesouthernbelle,

the rates depend on the unit that you are interested in, whether it's in one of the cottages or a condo, or the time of year... if you go to the website www.gigisparadise.com and see a unit you are interested in, send an email because depending on the amenities of the unit, the rates can be anywhere from $110 to $320.

Again, I feel compelled to add a disclaimer, I only answered this email because you asked a direct question about the rates
