Very poorly taken care of unit for a rental.

  • 2 of 5

This place needs some serious upgrading. All of the furniture is so horrible to sit on. Ice maker broken ,toaster one side broken, microwave broken ,small one on counter , the master bath tub water backs up to your ankles when you shower. Tile falling down in guest bath.Had trouble with the lock on front door. It would'nt unlock a few times had to work about 5 minutes each time. The place has had only had the very basic cleaning . The sheets in master don't fit the bed. Washcloths have bleach marks all over them.

I wouldn't rent this condo again.

great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five was quite comfortable in the condo. The chairs were a bit uncomfortable for us, but hey; we were in Hawai'i. Unlike some reviewers, we had no problem with the tv or dvd player. The view out the living room was fantastic and we enjoyed the breeze coming in. Opening the windows at night to fall asleep to the surf was something we really enjoyed. Some reviewers said the dish washer did not work, so we never tried it. Did dishes the old fashioned way; by hand. Do wish the washer and dryer in the unit was available to use, though. Found the parking space a bit tight for suvs, which a lot of people there had. Would not hesitate to rent again if the opportunity comes up.

Nice location, great views tired unit

  • 3 of 5

The location is great, beautiful ocean views and close to everything. The unit is older, quite small and the furniture is clunky and uncomfortable.

Maaelea Kai 308

  • 4 of 5

Very nice unit had all the amenities that were needed. Size of the complex is really nice. Views of the bay from the lanai were excellent. Pool was nice. Nice to be able to walk into town. Only issues were; the slider and screen doors are in need of updating-off tracks and hard to slide. Air conditioner filter needs to be changed. Would stay there again.

Read Reviews, not just stars before you book

  • 2 of 5

Please review other past reviews who had issues and they are genuine. I wish we had done that.. This property needs quite some maintenance and it seems that owner wants to suck out every penny out of it without spending a dime!

Few issues to mention -

- insects crawling near toilet walls.

- Dirty bed sheets and pillow covers.. looked like they were not washed/replaced for a while.

- On a scale of 1 to 10 (Excellent) for overall cleanliness of the property - our rating will 5.

- Clogged bath tub.

- Lack of enough toiletries and basic kitchen stuff.

- All kitchen appliances just garbage (need replacement).

- Missing keys in the lockbox when checking in.. had to wait another hour to get it. Lucky enough to not to have reached Hawaii on a late evening flight which usually is the case for most of the flights getting there.

Lessons learnt for future - we really need to read the best and most importantly bad reviews both to get an idea what you are getting into..

Good thing about this property - superb location!!
