Loved the layout of the house including lanai ! Close to many trails to the water and restaurants.
We loved that the house had snorkle gear, boards, bikes - the works!
The Pictures are Beautiful, but Not the Place
This home provided quite a roller coaster for us. On arrival on a Sunday afternoon, we found dirt on the floors and crumbs on the kitchen counters. There were staples on the stairs, and the metal clip from an ACE bandage on the master bathroom floor. There were sugar ants on the kitchen floor and kitchen counters, and black ants coming from the 2nd bathroom light fixture into the shower. The pillows smelled like body odor, and when we removed them from their cases, they were mildewed or sweat-stained. The local realtor who handled the rental came en masse on Monday, and they cleaned, brought new pillows for us all, and baited for ants. Unfortunately, the ants persisted throughout the stay. The bedroom A/C units worked reasonably well, but on the days with no breeze, the common rooms were muggy (this is likely a function of the location and not the home). The last straw was on the Thursday evening of our stay (we were due to leave for the airport at 11am on Friday). The power was lost to many homes in the area (not the owner's fault, of course), and there is a sign in the home that states the power sometimes goes out, but not to worry b/c all bedroom night tables have a flashlight. Well, in the five bedrooms and approximately 8 total night stands, we found ONE 5" flashlight. The local realtor, when notified, came out to see how he could help (James, who was outstanding). He attempted to contact the owner to approve our moving to a different home in the area for the night (at his expense), but the owner did not respond to the texts from James. When we hit the two hour mark of no power, and it was pitch-black outside, we decided to abandon the home, and I changed our flights to Oahu to that night. We received a 10% compensation for the filthy arrival conditions (which was only a bit more than 1/2 of the cleaning fee), and nothing for the lost night. Nothing.
As a family, we were scheduled to be in Kauai for 5 full days. We lost the first 1/2 day cleaning, my in-laws lost the entire 2nd day waiting and supervising the remediation cleaning, and the final night traveling. Because we arrived at our hotel in Oahu at 12:30am, we lost the first 1/2 day in Oahu as well.
The local realtor, despite having nice employees, did not go to bat for us with the owner.
Evolve, based in Denver, who handles the advertising (as seen here) was responsive to us, but also did not go to bat for us with the owner.
Overall, an awful experience.
At Kauai Pacific Real Estate, we always aim for a quick response to any and all items that are brought to our attention by our guests. While we have a cleaning system that includes an additional physical inspection of each property the day each guest checks in, we are more than happy to assist with any valid issues and provide service, and our staff can respond very quickly upon hearing that there are any concerns. While it was unfortunate that the widespread power outage occurred leaving much of the town of Princeville without power for a few hours, the majority of our Princeville guests recognized that it was a situation which KPRE had no control over, and we received no other complaints from our dozens of other guests, and the power was restored later that same day.
