Guestbook comments from the manager

The host was really really nice. Our flight was delayed, so we arrived at the house at 9:10pm!!!! The host was here, and kindly gave us a quick intro about the house. We stayed for five nights, 8adults. The house is spacious, new, and nice. Swimming pool is nice as well. We also got free papayas. Super like this place, will definitely stay here again!

Beautiful view, needs some cleaning & updating

  • 3 of 5

We stayed with our 6 year old son. Pool was a BIG hit of course. It was seamless for arrival and departure, Suzanne was kind enough to let us do a late departure.

When we arrived around I think 8 p.m., the house was closed up and unbearably hot. There was also a horrible smell from somewhere that no one acknowledged. (We later tracked it down to I think the disposal. We did not contact Suzanne about it, partially because she didn't seem to be bothered by it when she was showing us the house so we figured it was normal. We bought febreeze). Plenty of bedrooms and room for people to spread out. Kitchen was fine. Window air conditioners in bedrooms. It would be nice not to have the beds right below the air conditioners.

In general, things needed to be updated or at the least, cleaned. I know it's Hawaii and things wear differently, but some was just general housecleaning. Also, the furniture wasn't super comfortable, either inside or outside. The beds however are quite comfortable as well as there is an abundance of towels and bedding.

Overall, definitely a solid 3 star, probably 3.5 if that had been an option.

Owner's Response: Dear Dawn, Thank you for the feedback. It is true that the house was very hot when you arrived, sadly we've been having unseasonably hot weather this summer. After you checked in and it was so hot, I've started arriving early and turning on all the air conditioners prior to the guests arrivals to make it more comfortable. I have bad allergies which is why I probably didn't smell the sink when you first got there. I have purchased those compactor cleaners and doused the the sink with lemon, I believe the smell should be taken care of. In terms of the cleanliness of the house, I'm so sorry that you felt it wasn't great. We have a great cleaning crew, and I know they will be upping their game after reading your review. Part of the issue in Hawaii is our friends the gecko's. They can leave a mess on the floors and window sills, often in just a few hours. I agree that it can leave the house feeling less than tidy. It is slightly negative part of our "Hawaiian Experience" Please accept my apologies for not giving you and your family a 5 star vacation. That's always my goal. Mahalo, Suzy
