This house could be amazing if better maintained

  • 3 of 5

This house is located in an excellent location halfway between Shipwreck Beach and Brennecke's Beach. While the house in general was nice and the remodel of the kitchen and master bedroom were nice, there were some long-term maintenance issues which should be addressed. Several of the walls throughout the house and the ceiling downstairs needed to be repainted. The baseboards and stairway banister were dirty. A window frame in the master bathroom was broken and falling apart. The living room furniture was old and ratty and falling apart. The outside of the refrigerator was gross, and the ice maker portion was covered in mold on the outside. There is also a broken tile in the middle of the master bathroom floor which has sharp pieces sticking up and could cut the bottom of someone's foot. The sheet and mattress pad on the master bed had no elastic left and every night came off the corners of the bed. If we are going to be charged for every single item which is not kept in perfect condition (as stated in the rules), then the items should start out in perfect condition and not be well used and worn out.

Owner's Response: Aloha Michelle: Thank you for your feedback. We are very sorry you were not completely happy with your stay at our vacation home in Kauai. We make every effort to insure each guest is happy with their stay and that the home offers an aloha experience. The home is always cleaned meticulously and we try to make sure that touch up paint is done when there is luggage or other guest damage to walls. To be very clear - with regard to the refrigerator - there is a small amount of rust under the outside of the drip tray of the water dispenser (not at all unusual in tropical climates) and never touches the water itself. There is no mold whatsoever. Regardless, we have purchased new kitchen appliances that we anticipate will be in the home mid-May 2018. The bathroom window, although secure, is being replaced April 8, 2018. In addition, new living room furniture has been special ordered and is in transit. Inherent in the experience in Hawaii are the issues of tropical climates, high moisture contents and our beloved red soil of Kauai. Add to that the home has plantation jalousie windows that can open to the outside for trade breezes. This can create challenges to keeping the baseboards dusted. All said we do our very best to strive to make sure the home is pleasant and accommodating for all our guests. Mahalo for your stay. Arlette Patrick Carrigan, Owners

We loved our stay in Hale Pono Poipu, it was absolutely amazing! The kitchen is big, the house is clean and has alote of space. We were two families and it was just perfect. We could walk to the beach, had everything we needed and even more! We ran out of gaz for the BBQ and it was filled within the day! I would recommend this house to anyone and I hope to come back as soon as possible!

We stayed in the above home for 4 nights, and given the time of year and accommodations of providing for 3 of us, the home met our basic needs. The house is functionally furnished, with decor designed for sustaining long term minimal wear and tear.

The single standout deterrent to our stay was the 4 page list of house rules. I have been to Poipu in various living capacities and have to say that either the owners perhaps previously experienced some serious damage, or they are not, despite the rewards as beneficiaries of ownership, entirely comfortable with renting their home. As a homeowner, along with owning rental property, affixing a $250 security charge along with providing to prospective tenants a four page list of potential fines for lost towels, moving furniture etc, as well as basement signs posting fines in the event of forgetting designated trash pickups is quite discouraging, especially where Kauai visitors are extolled in general to follow a "aloha" spirit. So for four days we were there I was always looking over my shoulder, even to the point of our not using the remote garage opener as there were problems closing it when we originally arrived. Needless to say, this voluminous set of rules was a new experience for us given previous rentals of condominium in Poipu.

Sections of the house-- blinds, sliding screen doors, are in disrepair, a surprise given the fastidious formal attention to caution, breakage, lost items.

So in general, my advice to the owners (and the management company encouraging these prescriptions) is to either presume your clients are adults and entrust them to have reasonable discretion as they enjoy their vacation, or provide onsite screening before renting.

Owner's Response: We are very sorry you were disappointed with your stay at Hale Pono. We have been offering our Hawaiian home for vacation accommodations for over 20 years and strive very hard to provide an Aloha Hawaiian experience for our guests. During those 20 years, we have experienced wonderful guests that always love the home. The management company, Vacation Realty Hawaii, LLC manages over 48 properties on Kauai ranging from one bedroom condos to 4 bedroom luxury homes. They take pride in offering professional and careful service to vacation guests. Each property is unique and they have homeowner association and neighborhood guidelines and rules that differ slightly but all are in place to insure a wonderful stay for everyone. Insuring that rubbish is not left in the home or that items do not go missing is not unique to our vacation rental, and especially in tropical climates - help from guests in preventing pests and costly repairs is commonplace. Also, a security deposit of 250.00 for a 3 bedroom, 3 bath home is not excessive or unusual in any way. We am very sorry you felt constrained by the guidelines and suggestions which accompanied all confirmations from the reservation site www.alohacondos.com . The very reasonable House Rules are placed there to provide information about the properties and make your stay more enjoyable. Thank you for bringing to our attention the screen doors which have since been replaced. Alette and Patrick, Owners, Hale Pono

A good home base

  • 4 of 5

Overall we enjoyed our stay at this 3 bedroom / 3 bath vacation home in Poipu for 4 adults and 1 teenager. It has plenty of room for all of us. The kitchen was a nice size, great for cooking in. The living room and Lanai have an awesome view of the ocean.

The upper bedroom/bathroom and one of the downstair bedroom/bathroom have been remodeled; great rooms. However the last bedroom/bathroom has not been remodel and the toilet room smells like urine. The bedroom smelled moldy ( I have a sensitive nose). The vacation home company was responsive when I reported this issue and they sent someone out to clean the toilet room the next day.

Great location, a 10 minute walk to the beach. Overall a good home base for all our activities in Kauai

Owner's Response: Aloha, Thank you so much for taking the time to post a review from your stay at Hale Pono in Poipu. We are so glad you enjoyed the home and found it to be very accommodating, spacious and supplied for your cooking needs. Thank you for noting the great location and the awesome views! We are glad that you did call us about the concern in one of the bathroom as we certainly want to address any concerns in a timely manner to assure you have a wonderful stay with us. We do take any concerns seriously that the guests might have and our staff does spend longer than average on each rental preparing it for the next guest. The house cleaners do meticulously clean the bathrooms and disinfect them with each clean. We read that you felt that one bathroom had not been as updated as the other, however the upgrades in each bathroom are relative to each other throughout the home. This home with the beaches very close by, in walking distance as you noted is a great place to spend your Kauai vacation and we hope you can come again soon!
