Guestbook comments from the manager

I am very reluctant to write this review. I feel like this place is a hidden gem, and don't want anyone else to find out about it so that I can rent it again for our next visit to Kauai :) The townhouse is large, clean, very nicely decorated, comfortable and well-stocked. The beds are comfortable, and the AC works well. Kristen at alohacondos pretty much thinks of everything you could need. Speaking of Kristen, the manager, she was very easy to work with, easy to get a hold of, and very accomodating. The townhouse community is in a good location. Close to all the beautiful north shore sights and beaches, without being TOO far north. It IS a bit of a drive to get down to the south shore and kapaa/lihue etc, but you get used to the driving. The grounds of the community are very pretty. The pool was a great spot to hang out when we couldn't swim in the river run-off water after huge rains (brownwater). The only small negative of this rental that I can think of is that a couple of the rooms are a little dark (family/living room and master bedroom). I think it's because the bulbs are low-watt florescents, and I can understand the desire to conserve energy and keep electricity costs down. Other than that, the place is perfect and I would definitely stay here again!

Nice enough place

  • 4 of 5

The condo was nice with a good amount of space. The pool and hot tub were both really nice to have within the complex. The dryer took a really, really long time to dry -- would take 2 hours to dry a load of beach towels so that became annoying. Also, be aware that if you are bringing children this might not be the best place. One of our kids was sitting on the patio before 8 am playing with a balloon and someone else yelled at them. Later we got a highlighted rule about "noise" before 8 am. She wasn't being that loud but that made us uncomfortable and especially with kids waking up early for the time change it made it rather unpleasant. In the future, I probably wouldn't book this again for a family due to that unpleasant experience alone. I can understand needing to be mindful of noise and neighbors. But seriously she was sitting on the patio with a balloon. It wasn't that big a deal. Also, the extra fees really add up. I feel like they nickel and dime you. Extra fees, extra fees per person above a certain amount, a $300 cleaning fee, etc... It starts to add up. Also the kitchen was not well stocked at all. We barely had enough forks. There were no plastic utensils. There was a lot of boogie boards and beach gear so that was nice. The couch in the living room is really uncomfortable. Didn't make it a great place to lounge.

Owner's Response: Aloha, Thank you for posting a review for the townhome 3a at Nihilani. We are glad you found the unit to be nice and spacious. We will look into the dryer but sometimes if they are the new energy efficient units they do take longer. We apologize for a neighbor that was complaining to you. There are of course quiet hours but they are not designed for regular noise levels but related more towards parties and exceptional noise levels. We will have the property manager in the complex speak to the neighbors. The fees are all disclosed before you even book the unit and are all very typical for whereever you might go with vacation rentals. You must have seen the wrong numbers as the cleaning fee is 234.36 in your account plus tax as this is a large unit. We will have the housekeeper staff look at the flatware to see about purchasing some to restock. Mahalo again for the feedback.

Two Families stay was great!

  • 5 of 5

We were there with another family in the same unit (4 adults, 4 children) for a week in February, and had a wonderful experience. The home was clean, spacious, and everything worked great. We would stay there again! The only very minor detail that would be nice for the next guest would be to supply instructions for microwave. It seemed to be an older unit, and it took us quite a bit of trial and error to figure out how to use it. There were no instructions. But other than that one very small issue,,,which wasn't an issue really at all, but just more of a comment, we had a fantastic stay.

Perfect for 2 famlies

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. The condo had plenty of space. It was very clean when we arrived. Nice that it had beach toys available to use. Liked that there were fans in all the rooms and Lanais. Nice complex.

Only a few things that need to be replaced. The lampshades in the Living room and twin room. Maybe the vacuum as it had very little suction.

Would consider renting here again.

2 weeks in heaven!

  • 4 of 5

The townhouse was very clean and nice; however, there are a couple of issues that I would like to call to your attention. There were several light bulbs out, there should be some instructions on how to operate the microwave, it was very unusual, and I felt that the couch in the living room was uncomfortable and provided awkward seating. Having said this I want to say that everything else was wonderful and very nicely appointed, the beds were super comfortable, the beach towels were nice and thick, the grounds and pool area were lovely and we had a wonderful vacation. Thank you!

Owner's Response: Aloha, We appreciate any feedback we can get on our condos in hope to make them the best they can be. We are so happy to hear you did enjoy your stay and had a wonderful vacation. It is always our goal to make our guests want to come back. Our housekeepers do check of bulbs that have gone out and replace them as they see it. If you would have called us we could have come and replaced those for you. With furnishing, it is always a very personal taste that is considered in comfort and design. Usually the sectional seating does provide a comfortable flow though. Thank you again for taking the time to post!

Nihilani Stay

  • 5 of 5

We used to live in Kauai and actually lived in the Nihilani Condos. We read a few of the reviews about this property and were apprehensive but the pictures seemed great and had a good feeling about it. It exceeded all our expectations. The one poor review was so exaggerated. I'm a pretty picky person and I love, loved the place. It was perfect for our family. Very clean and had everything we needed. We traveled with our 6 month old and I was nervous but I felt at home. I was concerned about using pack n play and high chair but they were clean! My husband and brother n law played with my niece in the pool everyday and we did our grocery shopping at foodland and made breakfast everyday and was close to Lapperts to get an evening ice cream. It was also nice to do laundry when needed. We will most definitely return to this condo again in the near future. Mahalo

3A

  • 3 of 5

We stayed there with another couple so the lay out of the condo and the two king size beds were great! I truly feel though the condo needs some serious updates. The guest bathroom upstairs has mold on the wooden blinds and the smell alone was horrible! Felt like I should hold my breath while showering. And I know the closet in the master has drawers for clothing there are no drawers of any kind in either of the two remaining bedrooms and that is pretty inconvenient. The kitchen was nice but the couch needs removed and something less stained and saggy put in in the living area. I've stayed at many rentals so I do realize rentals get lots of wear and tear but this is now excessively worn! We have stayed at 24c in nihilani and it was slightly better but I think I thought the furniture was getting close to an update also. Another problem I had was I questioned amount of hair dryers in condo prior to arriving and was told two. Nope just one, didn't end up being an issue but I think maybe the condo should be looked at, and the scattered stains on the walls throughout the condo was also odd!

I also saw a cockroach in kitchen but only one so I didn't call. I realize it's Hawaii!

But with the above said I love princeville area, and have plans on returning soon. Just hoping a few updates can happen as Nihilani is also a wonderful area! I just wonder how bad it has to get before updates are made?

If the updates were made this would be a ten on a scale of 1-5!
