About Gail Locati

We backpacked Kauai 32 years ago on our honeymoon and have visited from time to time. The incredible beauty of the island of Kauai compelled us to eventually want to retire here. Combined with the wonderful church families and friends we've met there, the weather, beautiful beaches, hiking and the locally grown fruits & vegetables @ the farmers markets, we are looking forward to that day.

Gail Locati purchased this condo in 2012

Why Gail Locati chose Kauai

Nihilani is the nicest, newest, and well maintained resort we stayed in. Our grown daughters love the area and will enjoy Nihilani with their families for years to come.

What makes this condo unique

This town home has the plantation style with all the modern amenities you will love while visiting one of the most beautiful places on earth.

Nice Condo

  • 4 of 5

The condo worked out great for our recent family vacation (3 couples). The unit was very clean and spacious, we understood the downstairs bedroom was not private before hand so we did not have any issues there and the extra half bath upstairs was nice to have. Gail was helpful and quick to answer questions. We were there in November and there was definitely no need to pay extra for the A/C, the breeze cooled off the unit plenty with the windows open (but we also had LOTS of rain, so maybe was cooler than normal). It was great having a full garage to use for the rental car and sandy beach items when we came home each day, and the pool/hot tub area was enjoyed by all as well.

I do agree with other reviewers that all the timers and motion sensors on the lights got a little annoying. We live on Maui so I understand the cost of electricity out here very well, but I think that just comes with the territory if you're renting out your home. On that same note, the water pressure was incredibly bad in both showers. Not sure if this was somehow "turned down" to conserve but you could hardly wash the shampoo out of your hair! Other than those small items, it was a great space and I would recommend this condo for others looking on the North Shore.

Great Location, Great Condo

  • 5 of 5

The condo was equipped with all the amenities needed for our stay, down to beach equipment and detailed info on all things local. The pool area was very nice and quiet and had a small BBQ area we used to cook on one evening. This would be a great place for two couples or a group of friends/family, as there was plenty of room to stretch out and have space to yourselves while sharing a communal space. Gail was wonderful about communication and made sure the unit felt like home. Can't wait to go back!

Very clean and spotless

  • 4 of 5

This was my first time using VRBO and so a bit uncertain as to what to expect. I was not disappointed. The townhouse was definitely upscale and very well kept! It was very clean and spotless. The kitchen was well stocked with plenty of cookware and dining ware that we used several times across our short stay there with the grocery store being only a 5 min drive away. I felt that it was a great location to see/do all that we wanted on the North Shore. The only thing that surprised me and perhaps I did not read the description well enough was that while there are 3 separate sleeping areas, one of the beds (queen) is in the downstairs den/living area that one has to walk thru in order to access the second bedroom of the townhouse. The townhouse has only 2 bedrooms. We managed but it would have been nice to know this in advance. Again possibly that I didnt read the description carefully enough. We took advantage of the beach chairs/umbrella and boogie boards that were available for use. Thank you Gail for a great stay!

Owner's Response: Aloha Ben, thank you for the glowing review for our home. We are happy you were able to work out the sleeping arrangement for your three children. We do mention in our description of our home that the 3rd bedroom/family room has a queen bed and that it is not private. It is perfect for children/single adult that do not need the exclusive privacy. The downstairs story of our home is like a separate living space that our guests enjoy. We are happy you found everything else satisfactory and would love to have you back as our guest when you return to Kauai. Mahalo, Gail

Good stay overall with minor issue

  • 4 of 5

The property was very clean, well maintained, and is even better/more spacious in person than the pictures suggest. The owner is friendly and was responsive to questions/requests. My only issue was with the disclosure of the air conditioning - AC is an extra $20/day if you want it turned on for your stay but was not disclosed until I had already booked the place and got the rental agreement. It was misleading in my view and would have been more transparent to have this disclosed in the listing. They don't explicitly state that the AC is included free of charge in the listing although I've never booked a place on Homeaway or Airbnb that charged for it separately. It's a minor issue and $20 isn't gonna kill the budget but something to note if this matters to you.

Owner's Response: Aloha David, thank you for your review. We are pleased that you had a wonderful time on Kauai and found our home comfortable and nicer than the pictures show. We provide all our guests a well equipped home with quality bedding, linens, furniture and more. Our rates are low for this accommodation and so it does not include the added expense of the air conditioning. For our guests who come in the cooler times, and do not need or want air conditioning, we feel they shouldn't have to pay for it. We do have it on our website that we charge extra for it so we are not misleading anyone. We find that guests don't always read everything on our site. We appreciate your review and clarification. Mahalo, Gail
