Our stay in Oahu was nice. The property was functional and served its purpose. It was nice to have a kitchen to save on food cost. It felt like staying in someone else’s home though, which was new to us.
My only complaints were one, the property is advertised that it sleeps 6, but when the property owner found out we have 4 kids she charged me extra saying the fee we payed was only for 5!?! Two, we were told upon check in not to run the air too much or we would loose our security deposit. It was hot and humid and we were scared to run the air. We tried to use fans and open windows, but then we battled cockroaches and geckos. The air was loud though, so either way sleeping was tricky. Please be aware that you will need to do the dishes and launder the towels before you leave, so leave time in your schedule for that. Overall, it was a decent experience. The kitchen and the extra space is a plus. Most of the beach gear wasn’t useable, but we did use the umbrellas and the 3 beach towels. Thank you Tamara for use of your tropical property.
Nice, but dated
Unit was adequate for our stay, but dated.
Had an amazing time. See you next time!
Exactly as advertised. Tamara was easy to get in touch with as well. Thanks so much!
The unit is good has a home base. Needs updating. Great for a low budget vacation.
The unit is a one bedroom with a queen bed. An open loft has three single beds. One full bath on the mail floor hall. Powder room in the loft area.
Rental unit information book needs to be updated.
Bed mattresses old and need to be replaced.
Bath tub shower water handle is loose and needs to be replaced. Hard to pull. I thought it would break each time I took a shower.
Towels and sheet are worn. Beach chairs are rusty and torn, should be thrown away. Ceiling fan light chains were broken and hard to turn off. Had to use a chair.
Kitchen has limited flatware. A good amount of dishes and basic cooking equipment. There is a: microwave, toaster, coffee maker. Dish soap, paper towels provided. I would have bought in paper goods to eat and drink.
The place is great as a home base to sleep and shower.
Owner great to work with
Overall this was great! There were some minor issues that the owner took care of immediately upon arrival but the condo is clean, in a great location, and we will definitely be back!
Cleanliness of Unit
Upon arrival we were met with bedding that was not properly cleaned (pictures were provided to owner). as we checked the bedding we found bodily fluids on both the couch sheets and the 1 of the 2 single beds in the loft. we also found the couch with particles of dried food and sand as you open the unit for use and there were blood stains on the makeshift curtains. my wife took all bedding off of all beds and did a thorough wash of all sheets before sleeping on them as well as a general cleaning of the entire unit the next morning. during the first few days we had issues with power in the unit as it would cut out when the air conditioner was on, we did speak to the owner on a couple of occasions at which point we asked to have a maintenance tech come by and have a look and he found that the several of the electrical runs were going to the same fuse which upon viewing was very hot and melted. the tech replaced the fuse and added a second fuse directly to the air conditioner "problem solved", no more black outs. in our opinion the biggest issue overall with this unit is that the owner needs to ensure that the cleaning service is doing a better job seeing as renters are being charged a flat fee for cleaning services. the owner also stated that for our inconvenience and the pictures that I sent to her she would reimburse me 1 nights stay of which I still waiting on.
Aloha Eric, as you know we responded immediately to your concerns with reimbursement and focused attention on improving your stay. We have since changed our housekeeping service. Mahalo
