Substandard cleaning service.

  • 1 of 5

The house is situated on a quiet street with a gate access. I have asked for an early check in and we were allowed to check in at 1PM instead of 3pm, but the house was not cleaned. I have called the office to get it remediated. The cleaning lady showed up around 1:30PM and as she was cleaning the house we noticed that she did not change the linen but simply "made the bed". When we asked her about getting the linen changed she stated that she "was not told to do it." She left around 3:20PM and left a dryer full of wet towels. All the linen and pillows were filthy and smelly, clearly not washed or changed for weeks! I had to call the office again to get this resolved. Ended up spending the rest of the day shopping for new linen and pillows (which was only partially refunded to us) and making our beds (hardly an expected start to our vacation). Our cleaning fee was refunded and we were allowed a late check out on the last day. Overall I do not recommend staying in this house as you risk sleeping in a dirty bed unless you are ready to do all the work yourself upon arrival (small dryer and washer are not up to the task).

Owner's Response: Dear guest, Thank you for taking the time to write this review. This lovely property is located in such a perfect part of town, short walk to alii drive, close to restaurants/shops/beach and more. It has everything one could want while away from home, and best of all it is affordable when you compare to hotel prices in the area. We take every review and feedback seriously and as a result the housekeeping team has been terminated and replaced. As a property management company here in Kona we always want to be sure our guests are satisfied; we refunded you for all items you purchased, refunded your cleaning fee and more. Your concerns were also addressed while you were here via phone and immediately remedied. We do hope that the overwhelming positive 5+ star reviews on this property will not deter future guests from booking with us. All the best, The First island Realty team

Comfortable and convenient for Ali'i Drive attractions

  • 4 of 5

The property was comfortable for our family of 5 adults and 2 children. Finding the property was a little tricky, as the street off from Ali'i Drive did not have a noticeable street sign. But once we found the street, things went smoothly. We appreciated being able to connect to WIFI, but could not figure out how to play a DVD (there were a number of DVDs available). The location is very good: easy to find a beach for snorkeling, close to restaurants on Ali'i Drive, and a good starting point for many sight-seeing adventures. The property is low-key, nothing flashy, but comfortable -- and quiet. Good choice for a family vacation.

Clean, new, rental

  • 5 of 5

Very nice property. Relatively new construction with nice furniture, bathrooms, and kitchen. No view of beach or water(but that didn't really matter to us since we left early and came back late). The place is quiet and serine. Somewhat difficult to find and get to. A gate was locked so my wife had to find another route.

Beautiful stay

  • 4 of 5

The only reason I am rating 4 stars instead of 5 is because when we arrived the downstairs bathroom had been used, the evidence was left in the toilet and the TV in the living room works but, theres something wrong with the screen and the cable was not working downstairs. The TV wasn't a huge deal so we didn't contact anyone for it because there was really only maybe 2 days where we had some down time at the house so we just used our netflix account on the tv. It took us a minute to figure out the AC system but the house was lovely. The bed in the master bedroom is super comfy, its a sleep number bed so you can adjust it which was great. The location was perfect, safe, quiet street, and not a far drive at all to a beach and restaurants.

Owner's Response: Aloha, We are so glad you love the house, the neighborhood and the sleep number bed! We have just gotten a new TV so there should not be any more issues with the screen. The housekeeper was notified of your comments and assures us that she will pay more attention in the future. We hope you will come back and stay again on your next vacation to Kona!
