My wife and I got away for our 20th anniversary. This condo was perfect for the two of us. We had a great balcony/lanai with unobstructed ocean view and the sounds of the waves. It exceeded what we had hoped for with one of the lowest prices we could find. Walking distance to a farmers market three days a week and the ABC store. Sat on the lanai every night with munchies and drinks. It was just the quiet getaway we had hoped for. If you're a germaphobe, clean freak that needs maid service then I'd go to place that costs $500 a night and up. This isn't it. But it was clean, quiet, roomy, and checked all our boxes. Would definitely stay there again without hesitation. They would quite literally have to charge an extra $100/night before I'd shop around. Also, let me add that the owners let us stay there till 5:30pm on checkout day on very short notice. We paid $50 for the maid service that had to be canceled and rescheduled due to our very last minute request. I gave it 5 stars due to the quality of what we received versus the low amount of what we paid.
Not what was promised
This is a basic apartment, non-renovated and indeed a little run down which was not a concern for our little family. Nevertheless, some key elements that motivated to choose this place were not in place. As a result, I did feel a little scammed and hope others will read this review and/or owners will fix their description of the apartment to be more accurate.
1) We could not see the sunset from the lanai : the sun set at an angle that it would be impossible to watch it set from the lanai. Lanai has a nice view of the sea, but you cannot see the sun set. I was really looking fowrard to this and chose the apartment based on my understanding I would have this so that sucked.
2) This is NOT a 1 bedroom :( This actually felt dishonest to my husband and I. There are panels that do not completely close to cordon off double bed from living room. Because these do not completely close and are in no way soundproof, there is zero privacy. It would be more accurate to describe this as a studio. We needed some romantic time so this was a big disappointment.
3) Internet did not work. I troubleshooted on phoen with company and set up a service appointment for after our departure (there was a 2 week wait for this). I had been expected to check in at work so this was problematic.
4) Screen door has gap when closed: this might explain why there were sometimes cockroaches (eek) in apartment.
we enjoyed staying here, it was very convenient.
We enjoyed the view. It was a good location for us. The place had everything we needed and more. It has not It been updated but we didn’t care about that. The price was right. Great neighbors. Met people. Owners answered all our questions. We will stay here again.
We loved our stay here! Fabulous location and thoughtfully furnished, this condo had everything we needed for a family of four. It was clean, with a well-equipped kitchen and plenty of beach gear. We loved being right at the water and seeing turtles every day! Thank you Lorna and Jim!
Great view and location. Pool is super clean.
We liked this condo more than others we have rented before. The sound of the waves and constant breeze were nice. The bad reviews on this condo are a little silly. It's a great space and the owners are very responsive if there are issues. We had a tiny issue of there being no dish soap and they responded right away saying that they could get housekeeping drop some off or if we bought some they we pay us back. The kitchen cupboards are pretty old, but hey, you are not in Hawaii to look at the kitchen cupboards are you?!
Mahalo James! So glad that you enjoyed your stay. We are also happy to hear that you agree that the bad reviews do not represent the unit accurately. Next time you stay we are expecting a 5 star review because the week of May 14th, along with some painting, we are replacing all the kitchen cabinets, the bath vanity, and the carpet in the bedroom. Hope you come back again real soon and see the updates.
With us, it all starts with the ocean front lanai view. The one at this property is amazing.
We love the area of Honokowai. We really liked the condo at Hale Ono Loa. Except for the construction going on in the building across the grounds, the units are quiet and easily accessible. The sun deck that is very ocean front and spacious is great for sun bathing and sunset viewing. We would definitely return to Hale Ono Loa.
