The property manager was very helpful.
The vacation rental was spotless.
I was very happy with the location.
I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.
Overall, I recommend this vacation rental.
The house was impeccably done. It was so easy getting in and out -- love the combo lock instead of having a key to lose! My husband misplaced his wallet and the cleaning staff turned it in and are mailing it, which is great!! The house was well-stocked with boogie boards, and had a few snorkeling things, not much. We rented in Hanalei, and walked to the beach every single day for snorkeling, trying it at all different times of day (before 10 or 11 a.m. seemed best). I wish I'd seen the beach chairs in the storage unit, that would have been awesome. I didn't find them till the last day. Great kitchen, tons of supplies, good linens and gorgeous floors. Couldn't get streaming TV to work -- the TV wouldn't connect to WiFi for some reason. But the rest of our WiFi worked great. The staff at Bali Hai Realty were very helpful. The only negative: I have to say, along with many other reviewers, that for some reason the main room(s) of the house were very hot and stuffy. Maybe the skylights are letting in too much heat? Even with all the windows and doors open and the fans running, the main room felt still and hot. The outside was often at least 10 degrees cooler with the lovely trade winds! The other rooms cooled down pretty quickly, though, which was comfortable for sleeping, even with highs in the mid- to upper 80s during our stay. So we were totally fine in the end, and sitting outside was nice (they even had some bug spray stored there). Oh, and the first day, we couldn't really figure out the path to the beach! So it would be nice if, with the other directions in the binder, they included directions to the beach, maybe with a few pictures? My husband actually found a YouTube video showing the path, which was crazy! But it worked, and it was so nice walking out there at sunset -- you can see the sun drop into the ocean, which was beautiful. I thought the sun would set behind the mountains, so it was a wonderful surprise!"
