    That's a nice view from an OV unit. I would say that is on par with the lower floor views at Hyatt Residences down the beach which they call OF but actually overlook the pool then the ocean.

    What did you have to do to rotate the picture? I’ve tried rotating on my Mac, but it still looks upside down when posted here.

    Saved it to my images (on iPhone) and then flipped it using Edit function.

    I rotated the image again, but it didn’t help.

    Now I saved the image from the prior post and rotated it again on my iPad. It looks ok on my iPad.

    So I tried rotating the original image I took and posting it. It didn’t work. Saving the image I posted and then rotating it seems to work. How do I get the original image to post properly, without first posting it and rotating it?

    Moonrise over Lagunamar. If you look closely, there is a cruise ship on the horizon.

    I have never seen such wonderful photos of the OFD view and balconies. Where are these units located within the south building? Do they all have an ocean view like this? Are they hard to book?

    WKORV 1BR OFC, First Floor (Unit 3130).

    At first I was apprehensive about 1st floor but ended up really liking the unit, as well as the studio next door. I liked the convenience of just walking down the stairs to either Kahekili park or out to the pool area. We like the beach and shade under the trees in front of the houses next to Kahekili park. Sunsets were nice from this lanai, a little more obstructed by trees on the sand dunes on the studio side.

    That is clearly taken from inside, so technically not a view from the balcony :D

    You are in the absolute best building at Lagunamar. Most people will not be lucky enough to get that view. Lucky you. Maybe they know you are their ambassador!

    the ocean is even calmer today, please see the pics below. That picture was taken the first day we arrived. Most condos at Lagunamar have great views but you can get an outstanding room if you mention you are going to share the pictures with Traveltime :) 20181027_124109.jpg 20181027_123516.jpg

    Funny - I have a picture that is nearly identical to emuyshondt's in post #157, but the landscaping isn't as mature. I took this the first or 2nd year after the resort opened.

    Must be the calm before the storm (so the saying goes). Beautiful photos. I wish the weather were like that year round. I doubt TravelTime has any pull at Lagunamar. LOL

    Beautiful view from Westin Naanea. I love the green open space in between the buildings. Are they going to build something there in the future?
