Hawaiian Dream Temple w/hot tub that does not heat up

  • 2 of 5

Rating Details:

The property manager was adequately helpful.

The vacation rental was somewhat dirty.

I was somewhat unhappy with the location.

I was somewhat dissatisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.

Overall, I do not recommend this vacation rental.

Reviewer Comments:

I think for what you get it is overpriced. the theme is cool but the amenities do not add up. The hot tub heating element does not work. You have a limited amount of hot water you are allot each day. The dishes were dirty when I arrived and you pay over 200 for cleaning the dishes should have been check by the cleaning crew. The dishes are on the bottom shelf of the bottom cabinet. Need to address that (like making a shelf that sits on the counter top near the sink). The pool is really at an inconvenient spot (right outside the main house)plus needs maintenance on the bridge and lounging items). The bath tub is an old hot tub that is hard to get in and out of to take a shower. This needs upgrading to a walk in shower which most people take. Plus you are limited to how much hot water you can use a day and that tub would use all your hot water allotment. The cost of this place is too much for what you get. I would not go there again. The theme idea is great and that is what lured me but I work hard for my money and expect to have some kind of amenities that work. It is also located in a neighborhood so it is really not all that secluded. It does have nice grounds though.

Not as nice as you would think.

  • 2 of 5

The idea is great, a bamboo hut but the amenities were lacking. The hot tub does not work no matter how long you run it. the heating element is broken (a real bummer). When you come in the place has an odor but when you turn on the fans and open the doors you will not smell it. There is also a moldy smell behind the bed in one of the rooms. The pool is small and does not seem like they maintenance the bridge. Its needs to be painted and the furniture out there needs to be replace. You have to walk down the drive way to the main house to get to the pool which is to the left of their house. I mean right outside their house. There isn't a dishwasher so you are it. When we arrived I took a knive out to cut something and it was dirty and when I went to get some plates (by the way are on the bottom shelf so you have to bend down to pick up any plates, this is stupid! Who wants to bend down to get a plate, not even on the top shelf of the bottom cabinets) the plates were greasy. Gross. The cost of cleaning fee should cover checking the eating elements to make sure the person prior did a good job. Also you have a limited amount of hot water you can use during the day. Suggestions: make a shelving unit by the sink that sits on the counter top to store the dishes because it is awful to have to bend way low to get a dish. Fix the hot tub. Real bummer. Get rid of the tub and just have a walk in shower. That old tub is hard to get in and out of when just taking showers there.

Reviewer Comments:

The pictures on the internet/website are a bit decieving. The property is not as bright and nice as the pictures make it appear. It’s a little old and dark. The pool isn’t right by the rental and it’s not very inviting. Overall it’s a fair place to stay if you just want to get away from the city and relax, but it’s not spectacular. The management company is more interested in managing the property electronically than going out and inspecting. The on-site property book that gives information about rental doesn’t match what the management says and they don’t realize that their guests are on different time zones than Hawaii. They texted me several times after midnight after I asked them not too.

Beautiful location with abundant nature.

  • 3 of 5

It was a unique place to call home for 2 days upcountry and close to Jaws.

Pros:

Hot tub

Nature

Quiet

One of a kind building

Washer/Dryer

All the beach toys to use.

Cons:

Hard beds, simple fix would be pillow top foam on top of the bed.

No portable heater for cool nights.

Hot water fills half the bath then cold water so waste of a big tub.

Cover for aged couch would be nice.

High cost of cleaning fee vs other VRBO.

Jaws country store has a great breakfast. Lots to see in the towns close by.

Great, relaxing stay in a beautiful setting.

  • 5 of 5

Pouring rain when we arrived - but was a great place to sit and sip lavender tea and eat delicious banana bread. Beautiful, peaceful surroundings. Lori was terrific! If you really want to practice aloha, this is your place.

A real Hawaiian Dream!

  • 5 of 5

Staying at the Dream Temple and hanging out by the pool is just what I was hoping for! Truly relaxing! Lori does a great job of making you feel welcome and quickly taking care of any needs that may come up. A little off the beaten path but worth it!
