Reviewer Comments:

We stayed at 3 rentals during our month stay. This was OK. If the pool was heated it would have been better. Ice cold! The rental is 3 baths but one is outside not connected to the main house. There was a lot of strange noises in the house. Pool filter very loud and annoying. Not so private on one side of pool. The third bedroom not connected to the house either, outside to shower, but private. Stove was not working, only 2 burners electric. Cabinets in kitchen did not shut properly. The main bedroom got really hot in the afternoon. The second bedroom in the home, the window shade was broken and did not go down therefore no privacy. They said not to use the sink disposal to put any food down, then why do they have it? Avocados and oranges good on front trees. Plenty of towels etc. washer dryer in good working order. My favorite part of the house was listening to the shamu thrush, they sing beautifully on the neighbors palm.

Reviewer Comments:

We were there for 21 days to celebrate our 40th anniversary, and property was fairly nice, but for the money we spent, it could have been much nicer. We had purchased a lot of meat that we wanted to Bar-B-Que while we were there, and because the they advertised that a Bar-B-Que was available, but when we went to use it, it was rusted out, so we called Ah Aloha, and the maintenance man arrived, he looked a the Bar-B-Que, and agreed that it needed replaced, while he was there we told him that the water for showering was luke warm, and he said, "Yeah we've had problems with that before" he left and that was it, so tough luck I guess. He received authorization for a new Bar-B-Que from the owner, the same day he showed up, but we didn't get it till 3 days before we left. Ah Aloha had called us several times to tell us it would be delivered, but it never showed up till the end, they blamed it on Home Depot, which was only an hour away. We would've of picked it up, but it wouldn't fit in the vehicle we had rented. In the kitchen, the cupboard doors were falling off, or wouldn't close, only 3 of the 4 burners on the electric stove worked, and the burner coils would not sit flush, so while cooking all the pans would sit sideways. The kitchen is in dire need of an upgrade, it seemed like it was from the '80's. The sliding glass doors wouldn't slide, unless you pulled extremely hard with both hands. We were having to clean the pool, until a few days before we left, and after we complained a few times to the maintenance man. One other thing that bothered me, was there was a note on the garage door, stating that at any time, some local friends could show up, and but their car, and or motorcycles, in the garage, there was no mention of this in the advertisement, and as far as I was concerned, I was paying for the garage also, luckily no one showed up, and we didn't have to argue over the garage.

Owner's Response: We're so sorry about the difficulty in replacing the barbecue. Home Depot did mess up the delivery several times in a row, which is very frustrating. Delivery was paid for when the barbecue was purchased, so the owner understandably did not want to pay someone by the hour to drive an hour each way, in order to perform a service Home Depot had already charged for. Had we known in advance that Home Depot would mishandle things so badly, of course we would have made a different choice. Because the hot water is solar heated, during extended cloudy weather the hot water heater takes longer than usual to the maintenance man ought to have explained so that the guest understood it was a limitation of the system. Cupboard door hinges were tightened, which resolved the problem, sort of. So sorry that we do not understand the comments about the pool, there is a regularly scheduled pool guy to clean the guest is referring to skimming the surface for leaves, which is something you just have to do before you use the pool, in between cleanings.

The property was exactly as advertised. It was the first time we have rented a house on a holiday and we will definitely be doing it again. Great house in a great location. Hanalei Beach is only minutes away and is absolutely gorgeous. Princville adventures is right down the road and offer ziplines, horseback, atvs. The pool was clean and the kids had a blast playing in the pool and the kid friendly beaches nearby. Anini beach was a perfect kid friendly beach. Can't say enough good things about this property and its location, we will definitely be back.

Reviewer Comments:

Had a wonderful experience at this property. It's beautiful, well maintained, well furnished, and in a quiet beautiful neighborhood. A quick car ride to Hanalei, Kilahuea, and just a few blocks from Princeville Center. The beds are super comfortable. Lots of little things that made the stay super, like beach toys, boogie boards, a surf board, bikes, etc. Loved the lap pool, although 7 of our 10 days were overcast and rainy, so the pool was a little chilly. The water is solar heat, so we made sure to juggle our hot water needs so that we always had hot water when needed. Nice selection of games, books, and CDs, as well as great satellite TV (we actually got to watch our Packers twice while on vacation!). The island is beautiful and so relaxing. A top five vacation for us.

Reviewer Comments:

Our vacation review of this house is satisfactory. This was our 11th trip to Kauai and we wanted to experience a house instead of our usual condo accommodations. The privacy of the house was great, no slamming doors and no communal BBQ’s. However, the downfall was… living in a neighborhood that has full time residents. Our neighborhood had barking dogs that we’re before the sun was. The furniture needs to be steamed cleaned, the bedroom pillows need to be replaced and pool equipment serviced. The house was surface clean, but would benefit from a deep cleaning. The living room furniture smelled of body odor and years of people coming from the beach and getting comfortable before showering. Our pillows on our bed were stained from use and smelled too. Fortunately, we found additional pillows in the closet that were in good enough condition. The pool was wonderful. Our daughter who is a competitive swimmer was able to play and work-out in the pool. The pump that runs the Polaris needs replacing. The barring’s in the pump are worn and several times the pump was frozen and needed to be nudged to get working. I left word with the person at the maintenance # but did not get a reply. Lastly, the roof leaks in the main bedroom. We had significant rainfall on our last night there, the rain came through the roof and landed on us in the bed @ 2am. We attempted to place a pot under the leak to catch the water, but the roof appears to be leaking in several different areas of the bedroom, so we did the best we could and mopped up the flooring in the morning. Again, we attempted to reach the person at the maintenance # but was only able to leave message at the voicemail. Overall, the house was well appointed and centrally located to the things we enjoy in Kauai. With the items above being addressed, we could strongly recommend the home for your vacation.
