Guestbook comments from the manager

This unit was way more than we had expected. We had stayed before at Waikoloa however at a different property. The unit is beautifully decorated and fully stocked with everything (except food of course) that you need. We especially enjoyed the lanai as it faced the ocean and we were able to spend every evening watching the sunset as well as morning coffee watching the whales. The club and pool area is fantastic. You are right on the water and the view is spectacular!!! Only concern when we were there is the lack of a grill. There was a community grill at the pool club, but it was usually being used and never worked properly. However we understand that Hali'i Kai has installed more around the property to help with this concern. We highly recommend this unit, we hope to get back to Big Island and enjoy it again.

Reviewer Comments:

First the good: beautiful view (as always) and great location. The ice maker works great. Now for the downside: The property is becoming dated and run down. A few dollars and some tender loving care would work wonders. Sheets in one of the rooms were so pilly and rough that a top sheet had to be used over the bottom sheet. Still no pillow covers underneath the pillow slips. Yuck. Furniture is old. Dining chair seats are giving out as is the couch. Carpet is worn and dirty. Missing and/or burned out light bulbs. Missing batteries in tv remotes and ceiling fan remotes. Old and water stained shower curtain and tattered rug in the shared bath. Stopped up sink in master. Not a cookie and/or baking sheet to be found in the kitchen. The knives are beyond dull. Bird poop on patio table and chairs. Dirty windows, broken blind in the dining room that could not be raised, only two rusted and worn out beach chairs. Leaving a mop and bucket would help so the tile floors could be spruced up during stay. I would not feel right recommending to friends. Too many things wrong that could be fixed so easily and for not a lot of money. No response from owner/manager on the new app when asking for light bulbs and batteries and reporting sink drain. Sigh.

The location was amazing with views right onto the golf course and just a few steps from the community pool and restaurant. The home is beautifully kept and check-in/check-out was a breeze. Would definitely recommend for anyone looking for a quiet and relaxing stay!

Reviewer Comments:

Check in was no problem. Unit has several problems. In kitchen: Microwave non-functioning. Dishwasher soap dispenser doesn't work. Frying pans warped and scraped. Knives dull. Dining room chair cushions very soft and you sink down very low. Outdoor grill corroded and non-functioning. Sofa pillows and carpets filthy and stained. Looks like they have never been cleaned. No fan control in MBR. Mattress and bed squeak very loudly when you move around on bed. Master bathroom shower tile needs cleaning. Shower door is grimy. All the bed blankets have holes. Floor in entrance had obviously not been swept nor cleaned. Soft soap dispenser had been refilled with water. There were very limited supplies. No laundry soap, no additional roll of paper towels, no additional trash bags. It needs TLC!!!!

Owner's Response: We regret not hearing from this guest during their stay so we may have been able to resolve some of their concerns. New frying pans and blankets have been brought to this unit. There is a grill at the nearby oceanfront pool which is maintained daily for your enjoyment. The ceiling fans are all controlled by remote controls and the operation is outlined in our app. We provide a starter supply of consumable items for your convenience.

beautiful location, but condo is worn with cockroaches

Reviewer Comments:

This condo has a wonderful location with the lanai overlooking the golf course and ocean and the community pool is stunning with great Mai Tias; however, the condo is a bit disgusting. The bathroom sinks didn't drain and a cockroach fell into one but drowned quickly. We then made sure nothing was on the floor and the luggage was all zipped. The carpet is stained and looks awful. The condo footprint is very comfortable and the art in the unit is lovely. The greatest frustration with the vacation was dealing with Sandy Vacations, initially they were responsive but once the final payment was made they wouldn't respond to my request for check-in information until just before we left which was 5-6 weeks after the date the contract stated they would send the information, was rather irritating and stressful.

Owner's Response: All bathroom sinks are draining properly. The island will attract 'unwanted' guests. We do provide plastic containers to keep cereal and dry foods tightly sealed. It is a good idea to keep most items in the refrigerator as well. If you shop at Costco or other island locations be careful not to bring boxes into the unit as this is where roaches will hide and come into the unit with you. It is necessary to delay the final confirmation depending on the guest arrival to ensure the most current gate codes are issued as the codes change regularly.

Reviewer Comments:

The location was fantastic! Overall, the unit was very nice, although there were a few things I noticed which were inconvenient: When we entered, the first thing noticed was a window screen leaning up against the foyer wall. I wondered why someone left a screen and did not store it or replace it on a window in need of it. The TV in living room wasn't hooked up with connection cords. Luckily, one person within our family was able to figure out the proper connection. A couple light bulbs were burnt out with no replacements bulbs in the unit. A lamp switch in the smaller bedroom was broken, only allowing the far lamp in the room to supply the lighting. The dining chairs could use replacement. When I sat in several of them, I sunk resulting in the dining table being too high for my eating comfort. The outside chairs are really heavy and I was mindful not to take off my toes when moving them. I would recommend the pros of this unit to a friend, specifically the location and views. However, I don't believe I would stay here again. Additionally, there was a $10 fee per day that included complex entry and pool/fitness entry. I was unaware of this fee until we arrived.

Owner's Response: The window screen has been replaced. All light bulbs have been replaced and additional bulbs are stored in the kitchen cupboard. All lamps work off the wall switches, please do not move the plug to a different outlet. The development charges the $10/daily fee per family to access the oceanfront pool and restaurant.

Property was let down by substandard cleaning and maintenance. Dining table still had remnants of previous occupant's meals. Various remote controls had flat or no batteries. Many light bulbs needed replacement and blinds were broken. Bed was poorly made.

Owner's Response: We have addressed the cleanliness issues with housekeeping. All batteries and light bulbs have been replaced and spare bulbs are left in the cupboard for our guest convenience as they can go out immediately after pre-arrival inspection. The blinds have been repaired.
