This is an older unit that could use a touch-up
The kitchen was decently stocked with everything we needed - except salt, so we bought some and left if for the next guests. The lack of air conditioning was surprising at first - we walked in and it was obvious the homeowner/property manager had closed all of the windows and turned off the fans and let it get stuffy for a few days before our arrival. Fortunately, the unit cooled down pretty quickly once we got it aired out.
The Wi-fi worked well, even though our arrival packet claimed there wasn't wifi in the unit, there was.
This was a perfectly nice place to stay. There is a grocery store nearby with prices that are better than in the beach resort. There are also a few restaurants if you don't want to cook for every meal.
Could have been nicer, could have been much worse. The pool & hot tub were right behind the unit so not very far to walk. It's about a 10-15 minute drive to A-Bay, which has lots of turtles and fish to look at; along with paddleboard rentals and other water toys. It's 20 minutes to Hapuna, and 25 minutes to Waimea.
On the positive side:
-the price was reasonable
-the location was great....right on the 9th fairway overlooking the pool
-comfortable bed in the loft
-provided beach towels, one set of flippers, beach mats, beach chairs (in rough condition)
On the negative side:
-unit feels very tired and needs renovations
-trouble with the hot water heater (was fixed but then leaked through to the carpet and then was eventually replaced - but no hot water for first few days)
-the appliances are old --- fridge had a spontaneous flood inside when the ice maker jammed, so we had to turn it off to stop the leaking water
-parade of hundreds of ants from the vaulted ceiling down the walls into the kitchen (we get that it is a tropical area so we expected a few bugs...but not this volume) After several attempts to wipe them away, we located the source and sprayed Raid.
-upstairs toilet made such a loud squealing noise we had to stop using it... it was fixed after a couple of days
-wet towels were left by cleaners in the dryer for us to dry and fold
-no replacement garbage bags, or paper towels, nothing but a salt shaker for spices
We have used VRBO many times and found the standard to be much higher than this rental. None of the problems were enough to ruin our vacation, but it would have been nice to have a more carefree stay.
