Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed at the Plantation Hale for two nights while visiting Kauai. It was very convenient, with a full kitchen, refrigerator and microwave. The service was great, restaurants and stores close by, you can walk on the beach right next to the hotel. very friendly and accommodating. Highly recommend!

Very cosy; close to many amenities

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I enjoyed the stay at Molly's Plantation Hale unit! Very well appointed with the necessary items to maximize our enjoyment! Molly was very courteous and helped us with a few utensils to make our stay pleasant. I was surprised just how well Plantation Hale was run. The staff were awesome and were able to make sure we were well taken care of. There were 3 pool areas to enjoy and most of the time we had the whole pool area to ourselves :)

What is very nice about Plantation Hale is that it is very close to the beach (less than 3 min walk!); Because of its proximity we were able to walk every morning to the beach to enjoy the sunrise and then walk on over to Kapaa Village to get a nice Starbucks coffee! What an awesome way to start the day off right.

The kitchen was my wife's favourite part! Since we were there for a good long time, we were able to cook all but one of our meals at the suite. Kapaa has an excellent farmer's market every Wednesday. We got a lot of veggies and fruit there. A trip or two to the Costco in Lihue complemented our farmer's market visits with more long term supplies like bottled water and cereal.

I would definitely spend my next vacation at Plantation Hale and Molly has been such an excellent host. Communication with her was great and she got back to us right away :)

Thanks again, Molly! It was a pleasure.

Poor customer service from owner of unit

  • 1 of 5

This is not a reflection of Plantation Hale just this particular unit and the terrible way I was treated by the owner of the unit I rented. I saw other Plantation Hale units online that is in better condition. The unit is basic and outdated. There was barely full roll of toilet tissue and a 1 inch dead cockroach in the bedroom. I contacted the owner about the problem upon the first night of arrival at about 9 pm. To be fair, I wasn't aware that the owner was not local and resides in another state in a different time zone. As I described the problem to her she became agitated and accused me of mentally abusing her and causing her to suffer because I woke her up to about a bug problem. After a few minutes, she suggested I call her cleaning lady to take it up with her and continues to shout and rant at me. At this point, I decided this call was unproductive and asked about the refund policy. She said there was no refund and that I could leave anytime and she would not give me my money back. I told her I can no longer talk to her and she responded with angry "don't ever call her again". Afterwards I call VRBO customer service and filed a formal complaint on this vacation rental owner and they forwarded the details of this complaint to the owner or property manager in order to give them an opportunity to respond. To this date, I have not heard back from anyone.

The good and the bad

  • 3 of 5

First the good. The bedroom furniture is very nice and the beds are comfortable. The living room and eating area are also very nice. There are two TV's and many amenities that were not previously mentioned. There are chairs (to take to the beach), boogie boards, an umbrella, beach towels and snorkel equipment. All of which was very appreciated! One of the pools was having maintenance done, but that was no big deal, there are two others to choose from and they are very nice!

Don't worry a bit about the chickens (which are everywhere), they do a great job in keeping the bug population under control. We saw very few bugs at all.

The location is really perfect as it's half way to either the north or the south shore and is very close to the airport which is nice when you're coming in late. It's also within walking distance to the Long's Drug which comes in handy when you need to purchase something quick.

Now the bad. I found the owner to be less than forthcoming with information. It would have been nice to know you must check-in at the front desk to receive your key. I was told (only after I asked) to go directly to the condo. Also, just so you know, the front desk has laundry soap and dryer sheets for sale. We didn't know this and purchased some. We left them under the bathroom sink. Hopefully, they will still be there to be used in the future. We also bought a small styrofoam cooler and left it in the closet by the kitchen.

The condo was clean except for the kitchen floor. I know it hadn't even been swept because we found someone's smashed glass phone protector on the floor. There was also a squished bug that I was never able to get off the floor and it was just plain dirty.

The cupboards still don't close. An attempt has been made on a few of them with velcro, which isn't working.

The pictures are a bit deceiving, they were staged so there's no flowers, no chocolate or coffee and no table on the lanai, which was the disappointing part. You can't eat out there unless you want to put the food on your lap, there is just a small, low table.

There was plenty of shampoo and cream rinse to last the almost two weeks we were there, but not enough paper towel, or toilet paper and there was never any bath soap. These are things you take for granted, but we had to go buy them.

All-in-all probably more good than bad, but the bad reflects a lack of interest on the part of the owner.

Nice property

  • 4 of 5

Plantation Hale is a nice property in a very convenient location. There are two shopping areas with restaurants in walking distance. The beach is also a short walk away. The property has 3 pool areas, two with hot tubs and each building has its own laundry room. The staff were friendly and helpful. Definitely a good place to stay in Kauai.

We had two problems with the unit: the wifi was not working and we had to call the service provider ourselves to find out why. Molly did take care of the problem when I notified her but we had to make several calls ourselves first. Also, the unit is advertised as a queen sofa bed. It is not. There is a regular sofa in the living room and a blow up air mattress in the closet. I specifically chose this listing because I needed two separate sleeping areas. Having a mattress on the floor in the living room was not ideal.

Absolutely Idyllic!!

  • 4 of 5

I stayed at the property from 8 - 13 May with my 75 year old mum and it was fantastic! To be honest, the unit could do with some TLC, but nothing that a handyman couldn't see to in a day - kitchen cupboard doors don't latch, rubbish bin is broken and has no lid and there are only 3 forks left!! But that in no way detracted from our enjoyment of the place. The beds are very comfortable as is the lounge which I slept on more than once :) It was like having a home away from home. I had been a bit concerned when I read some other reviews stating that it was noisy because it was near the main road, but I can happily say you can barely hear any noise. We hired a car and traffic jams were not an issue (you are on holiday people, relax!!) and it was nice and central to everywhere. Nice and close to the beach for walks, I couldn't say about the televisions because we didn't use them, but the internet was great. I'd have no hesitation recommending this place to anyone and would stay again in a heartbeat.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review. I'm glad to hear you enjoy your stay! Vacation is all about relaxing. I will definitely keep in mind to fix the cupboard door latches and replace the bin and put in more utensils for future guests.
