Mitch was not home and I didn't meet him. Sharon was a great host, and the room is lovely.
We would not recommend this property to anyone. On arrival to this house we noticed a lot of junk in the yard and quite a few dumped cars. There was nobody home so we went back into the town and phoned Sharon. She was away and so was Mitch, we got instructions and went back to the house and went into our room, There was a nice welcome note from David an the table explaining that he would be back after 11pm and with lots of suggestions for things that we could do. We are very independent people and already had our time there planned. We noticed immediately that the place was very dirty and unloved, the crockery and cutlery were not clean, there was not a kettle and no tea towel. The double kitchen sink had wire strainers in the plug holes and these were full of old food scraps, the fridge was also not clean it had an old mouldy coconut in it and other food scraps. The bathroom sink looked like it had never been cleaned and the towels were old and thin. The shower curtain was dirty and the base of the shower stained. The porch area outside did not have the blue and white table and chairs that you see in the pictures of the place and it needed a good sweep and mop.Then the bugs came out and OMG did they ever, it was thick with bugs that obviously can get through the fly wire screens. There should be a note explaining to close all the windows. We did not enjoy our time here and wished that we had stayed at the previous airbnb at Princeville for those 2 nights and travelled down to see Waimea Canyon, which you could do easily in a day. The place we stayed before this was clean, homely and loved unlike this place and cost the same amount. My husband went upstairs the second night to say hello to Sharon and try and get a kettle and tea towel but there were only 2 other couples that were staying there through airbnb and they had not seen the owner either. The dogs were friendly but do bark a lot. I can only hope that Sharon and Mitch will spend the cleaning fee that we paid for cleaning of this dirty house.
The studio is located in a gorgeous canyon. One can take a 2 mile walk along the River levee and make their way to the ocean, stores and restaurants. David, who served as the host while Mitch and Sharon were gone was very welcoming, caring and conscientious.
I cannot recommend this property. When we arrived the bed was not made. The sheets were damp laying on the bed.and there were no towels. The place was not clean. I understand you need to expect bugs in Hawaii but the bugs were a result of neglect. The bathroom was very dirty. I really don't think they had cleaned the place in some time. I don't understand how you can rent a dirty room. The walls, sides of refrigerator and just everywhere was dirty. The dogs fought and barked throughout the night. It sounded like people moved furniture upstairs at night. It was really unacceptable conditions. On top of everything we paid a cleaning fee. Finally there was no hot water in the shower.
Aloha nancy I was disappointed to hear that your stay with us wasn't perfect. When we spoke on your arrival i apologized to you for your studio not being ready and asked what i could do to help the situation. you said it was fine and to not worry about it. The next morning when I brought fresh picked fruit to your studio and once again asked how are things ? your answer was very positive. It sounded to me that things were going very well for you and your partner. If things weren't to your standards why didn't you immediately bring it to our attention? If you saw a bug or heard a dog bark and were irritated by it why wouldnt you seek us for a remedy to the situation? We are your hosts we want to make you as comfortable as possible. A word of advice to you in the future when arriving early and finding your accommodations not ready please notify your host and let them know it is alright with you if they complete their set up on your room.
We had a great time in Kauai
We saw whales, waimea canyon, waterfalls and more:)
Bring mosquito spray with you. We had a lot of mosquitos in our room!
The room was great. There was a very large king size bed and large bathroom and kitchen. Sharon and Mitch were great hosts and gave us hiking advice. I'd definitely stay there again.
Mitch and Sharon were excellent hosts. We enjoyed our stay in their paradise home very much and recommend their airbnb to everyone travelling on Kauai.
This place was more than a dream.
Mitch and Sharon are awesome hosts and welcome everyone with open arms.
You can share experiences and have really good conversation. They give you really good advices and tips where to go and everything is accompanied with a great musical energy. ;-)
Moreover the garden view studio is perfect! You have your privacy a great view to the garden with banana and other exotic trees and the fastest access to the Canyon.
Best place and best hosts.
