Great price, but needs cleaning.

Well, for the price, this was a good unit. However, it was pretty stuffy as there are practically zero breezes that blow through. Regardless of the price though, one should be able to walk into a clean environment with little to no remnants from previous renters. We felt like it was not cleaned properly. This unit, like any living space, needs a deep cleaning every few months. The fans were caked with dust/fuzz, the bathroom had a urine odor, there were used bath sponges in the shower, and the tub didn't drain well... We also had to make a second trip out to get paper towels and a bottle opener. We texted the owner with no response, but he cheerfully answered the very first time we called. He confirmed a good time to come over and brought paper towels, addressed the tub, and 3 of the 4 fans. The bathroom smelled good for about 12 hours, then the odor returned but not as strong. We also had small cockroaches every morning when we woke up, even though we were meticulous about keeping all food in the fridge and put all food waste in a plastic bag in the freezer. The owner said he would spray, but we still had fast moving roaches and found no dead ones. On the bright side, Punalu’u seemed to be located on the greenest, prettiest part of the island and was close enough to the north shore as well as the city. There was free wi-fi at the condo, beach towels, and easy recycling available. The beach was only a few yards away and we even snorkeled once; we rented snorkel gear for the week from a travel zoo deal. We didn’t use the pool, because the ocean was so close and inviting. Several people used the small workout room, so it must have been decent. Overall, we had a great time. The stuffiness and no view issues were expected with the price of the unit; we just wished it would have been cleaner.
Owner's Response: Sorry about the roaches,Summer always seem to be a little more active with those critters.Recently fumigated,cleaning crew fired,moving on,Thank you for the kind words,Troy

Great location

Everything was as described on the site.
The property was very clean and Troy was there to greet us when we arrived.
Troy answered all our questions and was just a phone call away.
The condo has everything you could need, all kitchen supplies, towels, sheets, washer and dryer.
Even though you can't see the ocean from the property, it is really just steps away, no big deal at all.
We would recommend this condo to our friends.
We were very happy with this condo , it's a great deal.
The polynesian center ,Matsumoto's Shave ice, Waimea Valley are all close.
Would highly recommend "Thai Mobile" in Haleiwa shopping center, excellent Thai Green Papaya salad .

Kid-Friendly, Easy Place to Call Home

Troy's place was clean and had everything we needed to make ourselves at home for a few days. Our kids loved the full-size bed that they got to share in its own cozy room. Our only disappointment was that we couldn't SEE the beach from the condo, but we were literally steps away. We would stay here again, and would highly recommend it to others. The beach is so close and as kid-friendly as you could ask for, with gentle waves. The beach was never crowded, and at times we had it all to ourselves. The kids also enjoyed running in the grassy area between the condo and the beach (near the pool) and we had lunch picnics there every afternoon.

Beautiful White sandy beach right behind this getaway in the country. Yes, its a 20 minute drive to the famous Sunset beach, and Banzai Pipeline! 10 minutes from the Polynesian Cultural Center, 15 minutes to Turtle Bay Resort, 15 minutes to Kualoa Ranch,and about 30 minutes to the nearest Mall (Kaneohe).This is a brand new recently remodeled 1 bedroom(alcove)1 bath, 1st floor unit steps from the most secluded beach on the windward side of Oahu.

Queen size pillow top mattress with Hawaiian Quilt, and a full size bed with Hawaiian Quilt as well, makes your Hawaiian vacation most relaxing ever. Koa pictures, lamps, and Coffee tables, makes your stay feel like a true Hawaii resident.

Get away from the hustle from Waikiki and enjoy the country! Other attractions thats nearby, Waimea Bay, Laie Temple, Buddist Temple in Kaneohe, and lets not forget about Old Haleiwa town (Matsumotos shave ice)!

Golf: Golfer? 10 Minutes up the road you can play 9 holes for 12.00 bucks. Or for the avid Golfer, 2 Resort style PGA courses 15 Minutes up the road to the beautiful, Turtle Bay Resort. The Arnold Palmer Course, and the Fazio both offer any golfer the enduring challenges of PGA Golf. With the Seniors and LPGA Playing there, It's always a delightful experience!

Travel South to Kaneohe and play, what was once the hardest hole in the nation, Koolau Golf Club. The number 18 Hole at this very challenging, yet Picturesque Course, will offer a life time of memories. Don't forget your Camera! If you're planning a golf trip, I would love to give you all the information about golf in the area , or for that matter on the whole Island, as I too am an avid golfer!
