Nice house but needs some attention, great views, missing disclaimers

  • 3 of 5

The house is lovely and the views are spectacular. Very comfortable living area and adequate kitchen. However, there are a couple of things that should have been disclosed:

1-the other house on the property is having renovations done. For most people I'm sure this is no big deal HOWEVER, we really could have used a couple of days to decompress at our own pace but had to choose between listening to hammering and power saws and being gone all day.

2-Owner lives on site, underneath this house. Again, not a big deal, he's a nice enough guy BUT, when he comes back after dark and cleans up his jet ski or whatever RIGHT under the floor height transom windows in the livingroom and the gasoline fumes invade the whole livingroom...not great.

The blinds in the master bedroom are both broken and we couldn't get the window right above the headboard closed so had to stuff towels in the opening to keep from having the torrential rains reaching our faces in the middle of the night.

Also, I know we were up country but, the neighbor below has a young dog that just cries ALL the time.

Also, supplies we're short like hand soaps, dishwasher detergent...again, not s really big deal but still.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback. I pride myself on prompt response and prompt action to any requests whenever possible. Let me address concerns individually. 1 - Renovations are nearly complete on the upper house, Pookela Paradise 2 - it’s going to be fantastic! Unfortunately, the roof was going on during this stay, which is the noisiest of all the trades since it's outside and involves lots of nailing with nail guns. Completion date for renovations is 20Dec2017 and most of the trades will be working inside for the remainder of that time - drywall, flooring, etc. 2 - I don't live on site at this property, but I am using the downstairs owners office (which is completely separate from the house) until renovations are complete at the other house. I do keep a jet ski in the garage at this property, and have for several years now, but I've never had any complaints. But, given this feedback I will be more careful not to flush it if anyone guests are home since this does in fact require running the engine to do so. I typically only use the jet-ski once or twice a month. 3 - I wasn't made aware of the blinds and/or window during this stay, but now that I am they will be addressed and repaired immediately 4 - The only close-by neighbour this house has had not one, but three new puppies that were kept in an outside kennel for a couple days during this guest's stay and yes, their barking was annoying. This was a temporary situation which has been addressed and the neighbour has relocated them. 5 - My cleaners provide enough sundries to get guests started during their stay but as a self-catered property they aren't asked or expected to replenish all supplies. So future guest know what to expect to be there, they provide: small hotel sized bar soaps, small hotel sides shampoo and body lotion, at least one roll of toilet paper per bathroom, and a box of Kleenex. Usually there are some other supplies on hand, but only if left by other guests. So if shopping you may wish to include the following items on your list: small quantities of dish soap, dishwasher soap, laundry detergent, and anything else you may need beyond what's listed as included above. I hope this helps to clarify. Once again, thank you for your feedback it is always much appreciated so we can maintain the quality of our property and our usual five-star review record.

Perfect location

  • 4 of 5

A beautiful house in a perfect location for touring "Upcountry". Mark, the owner is very congenial and easy to work with. There were numerous maintenance issues, all of which did get fixed , that got us off to a rocky start, but it ended well.

The property was maintained well. The cleaning was not what I would have wanted for my properties.

  • 4 of 5

The only problem we had was the local power was out. We really enjoyed our stay and will be going back to the house hopefully very soon. The location for us is the BEST.

Beautiful Home, Location, Owner

  • 5 of 5

My family had an amazing time at Pookela Paradise! We loved having plenty of space, a wonderful kitchen, a responsive owner (even though we had no issues), our own hot tub and grill, and amazing views.

In addition to the house itself, we liked the location. The town is fun to walk around, and central to all sides of Maui. Yes, you will be driving, but we would be doing lots of exploring no matter where we stayed.

We hope to return!
