Plus, unit K208 is located just steps away from the lobby area. This is SUPER CONVENIENT! No walking across the property to catch a ride to the beach area or the trolley.

A 10 second walk to the lobby area and off you go! The most talked about feature without a doubt is the exclusive Eldorado Resort’s Private Cabana located at Kaanapali Beach. You can see it from your unit! A golf card shuttle at the lobby will take you there in 30 seconds and haul all your beach toys!

It also includes unlimited shuttle service to the cabana, internet service, lounge chair rentals and the use of the full kitchen and library at the cabana. Enjoy and cook a special dinner at the cabana on the beach! Or, socialize with other guests, play cards and watch the sunset.
VRBO "service fees" Explained: (No, we can't wave their additional "service fees". Noting to do with us. This is their money.
- No, we can't figure out the percent they ad, they're all over the place but it's between 9% and 15%.
- We can not modify their service fee or give you a discount on their fees
- Any insurance they see you on (damage protection or trip insurance), this is also 100% their money, not ours
- When they pay us our rent, they also subtract anywhere from 3% to 8% from our end
The Quote: (includes vrbo's service fee + total rate per night + cleaning cost + Hawaii taxes)
The total price quoted to you here on vrbo will include our rate per night (which we've set), tax submitted to Hawaii, the cleaning fee and the additional service fee vrbo has added to our advertised rates. VRBO likes to display, on purpose, just the total deposit due and 2nd payment due because they don't want you to see the breakdown. This unfortunately, has led our guests to ask us for the breakdown. We wish they would display the breakdown but they obviously don't think it's wise for you to see so they push it on us.
Here is the deal, their additional "service fee", which they don't openly display, is a percent (can be anywhere from 10-15%) of the total amount we have put in their system. We input the room rate per night, the tax percent and the cleaning fee our cleaning company charges to clean the unit. They, vrbo, takes this total, including all the taxes (which we don't think is fair) and add a percent to this total. Most companies, charge a percent, but not a percent including the taxes that need to be collected. So, it's not 10% of just the revenue portion (room rate), it's 10% of the room rate total + tax + cleaning fee so it ends up being higher than just 10% on the room rate.
And, the percent is not consistent at all so we can't figure out the formula they use to come up with their additional service fee but this is their money they've added to our rates so we have nothing to do with this extra fee so please don't ask us to wave it. If they've sold you on additional insurance, this is their money as well. When they release your funds to us, they also take an additional 3% up to 5.5% from our end as well. This is how they make their money and they also charge us an annual fee every year.
