    Is the pool located in the "mountain view" building? We booked a unit in the "ocean view" building but are wondering if we'll have to drag all of our stuff across the street to swim. Thanks!

    It's in the courtyard, however I had an ocienview room that was across the road in the "mountain view" building. There are probably 3-4 rooms that have ocean view rooms on the mountain view side.

    I see many guests complaining about construction noise. I'm assuming owners and property managers renting units warn potential clients of scheduled renovations involving neighboring units, is that correct? If not, why not? Visitors are spending thousands of dollars on Hawaiian vacations and none of us wants to spend it in a construction zone.
