Beautiful Home in the Kiahuna Golf Neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

The home is a single level which helped my wife very much as she is still recovering from a broken ankle and stairs are problematic. The swimming pool is perfect for cooling off and for working out. We stayed for 6 weeks and celebrated our 50th anniversary. We were joined at different times by our 3 children and their spouses (or in one case our grandson) as well as a friend. The bedrooms and bathrooms were all very comfortable. We used the BBQ and also ate some of our meals at a table outside. The kitchen is well laid out and is well supplied. Have already arranged to return next year.

Not a luxury experience

  • 2 of 5

Immediately upon entering the home we are faced with the reality that there is no air conditioning. There are cheap fans in most rooms to offset the stuffiness. I am from the mainland south and this came as quite a shock. Admittedly this was my fault as A/C is not mentioned as an amenity. Not knowing about Kauai's energy costs again was my shortcoming. We have been accustomed to expect certain basics in renting a "luxury " home in an upscale golf community. I felt as though it should have been disclosed to the unassuming traveler. Second the refrigerator did not work at all during our entire rental. We complained to the property management company and were treated with disdain, disrespect, pushback, blame etc. When something of this nature is reported it should be handled immediately with empathy and understanding. Not the case. Garden Island Rentals, specifically, Jenny, was uncaring and hateful during the entire unfortunate ordeal. One rents a home with an appraised value of over one million dollars and are told to go get coolers. Unacceptable. The insolence dealt toward my family by the agent of Garden Island Rentals was beyond anything we have ever experienced when renting vacation property. We have travelled all over the globe and never been treated with such disrespect. To their credit we did brainstorm the problem and offered up a solution which was to rent a refrigerator from a local company. There again was much resistance but it was delivered and installed in the garage. We were told a part had to be ordered but that was long after we were told to "just close the door for 24 hours". Third, the luxury bedding you are led to believe you will have is nothing more than cheap mattresses and foam toppers, also disclosed in another review. In summary, We threw away many hundreds of dollars worth of food and reimbursed a fraction of the purchase price. Trying to be fair, we only proposed reimbursement of $300 for the food but the owner somehow determined that his fair assessment of our financial loss was worth only $200. The home is in an excellent location for activities and the pool was an asset other than the deck needed sealing. There are serious faults with Garden Island Rentals so don't expect too much assistance if you have a problem. Owner Michael could have and should have been more hands on during this rental but seemed to let the rental agency (Jenny) deal with the refrigerator issue in any manner they chose. Buyer beware

Owner's Response: This trip we have addressed every concern to make the home look its finest. Now 50" TVs in both the master and living room (TVs in all bedrooms), now all bedrooms have new mattresses with toppers for added comfort (master bedroom Cal King had already been recently replaced), Pool area, rear patio and driveway FuturaStone has been resealed, and any other items deemed necessary. We have been using the refrigerator as well as the additional refrigerator that is in the garage. The built in Sub Zero 48" refrigerator costs approx. $12,000 to replace and still in process of being repaired (approx. $2500.00 to repair). Parts are ordered, unfortunately taking a longer time to repair or replace on Kaua'i island as compared to the mainland - hopefully finished this week. I sympathized that you had the refrigerator problem, I wanted to be fair, not everything would spoil ($300 seemed like of food to spoil in a refrigerator, at first $600.00 was requested), I never asked for receipts, I thought $200.00 reimbursement was reasonable and fair for your trouble. I also felt sorry that so much time was devoted to the refrigerator on your Kaua'i trip even after an additional one was brought over. I had also arranged with Lappert's Ice Cream Parlor a $50.00 gift card to take out you and your family. I called and left 2 messages however you didn't return my calls. When my wife and I arrived, the gift card was still at Lappert's so we enjoyed it. I wasn't part of your conversations with Garden Island Rentals. I spoke with Jenny today (it wasn't her who you were speaking with) she said that she only spoke with you one time. I understand that the owner himself (Louis) was very helpful and brought over the additional refrigerator. We have always had a good relationship with Garden Island Rentals since 2010 and I had mentioned that I didn't want to hurt our relationship over a refrigerator, and another refrigerator had already been brought to you by the time you spoke with me. I do hope that you and your family will plan to come back in the future to Kaua'i and our home and have a great time.

WE LOVE KAUAI!!!! Wow what an amazing island!

  • 3 of 5

We booked this house because it fit our family without the need to book two hotel rooms and we had our own pool! The location was excellent and very close to Poipu beach. The home had ample space and was equipped with most items needed etc. We arrived on a Saturday and unfortunately the pool was lined with plant debris and dead bugs...of coarse we called to see if someone would come clean it but we ended up not being able to use it until Monday night after the weekly pool cleaner came by. Then a few days later a dead baby chicken floating much for our own pool. Just a heads up to future renters the 10PM quite time is extremely strict. We were out on the back lanai chatting..and being very quite....Come to find out the house across the street had music blasting and tons of laughing etc..The lady behind ended up yelling at us to go in the house then decided to complain to the Home Owners Association..Honestly didn't spend that much time at the house after that Super Sad that we had to pay over $5000 in 10 days just to sleep. Next time we will choose to have a hotel with a for sure clean pool and our rooms cleaned for us every morning.

Owner's Response: I truly hope that you and your family enjoyed your stay - you and your family should have the greatest time every time you come to Kaua'i At the home there are papaya trees, star fruits, lemon, tangerines and haden mango (when ripe the chickens usually come to eat the fruit that drops to the ground). Sorry for any misunderstanding - 10 pm is quiet time - all the more difficult to be quiet outside after 10 pm with a family of 8 people (6 children).

Property needs a lot of updating.

  • 1 of 5

Home desperately needs work, saw a lot of dead (and alive) ants and cockroaches throughout the house. The bathtowels are beyond gross!had to buy our own towels. need new dishes cups etc. in kitchen, when plastic cups are chipped-it's time to toss them! The pool is nice but couldn't keep clean cause the net had so many holes in it! Outdoor surface in bad shape, hurts to walk on. And mattress toppers on old beds doesn't make the bed new. Overall the property is run down and for the money I expected more. Felt like no one wanted to spend money on this home. Will not be back to this property unfortunately and wouldn't recommend it to others.

Owner's Response: I will certainly check and make sure that all is fine in the home. I'm sorry to hear, the home is professionally managed (including pest control). Towels, kitchen utensils, pool net, etc., are replaced whenever necessary. Pool equipment in pool room is new, mattress in master bedroom was recently replaced, toppers are for added comfort. Outdoor surface is Futura Stone, for safety helping to eliminate puddles and standing water around swimming pool area. People normally wear sandals outside. We will be addressing any maintenance issues on our next upcoming trip. We want people to have the time of their lives when vacationing and staying at our home in Kaua'i.

Excellent Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved this property. We had 5 adults, 2 kids and a baby and there was plenty of room for everyone in the spacious layout. It's located in a golf community minutes from everything. Would highly recommend this property and was really appreciative of the owner Mike and his promptness dealing with our booking and any concerns we had during the trip.
