Wow- this review sounds like it was written by a different woman… may I ask why didn't you tell me any of this? You only expressed contentment to me so I must admit your detailed list of issues comes as quite a shock. I can't believe you found centipedes in the bedding! I have very rarely ever seen centipedes at this elevation. It was likely the coffee that sent you to the bathroom (Kona Coffee is powerful stuff), the water doesn't do this to most people, however I do prefer people to drink the filtered water provided (which I fetch whenever people run out if they let me know it is needed- just leave the bottle outside your door). I am sorry that you had such an uncomfortable experience but in the future, I suggest that you discuss your discomfort with your hosts as to give them an opportunity to address it- I would have been more than happy to help remedy anything that was disturbing you, if you had but mentioned it.
I apologize yet again that you had so much trouble finding it. It surprises me a little that you sound upset that I didn't visit with you- had I known you were interested in spending time with me I would have been more than happy to come drop by. In fact, I had the distinct impression that I would not have been welcome had I done so- which is why I chose not to disturb you. You might be sure, if you know you need a full kitchen, to rent a space that has one… there are many available and I could have recommended some to you had I but known that was what you needed… seems a little silly to rent a space that states it has no stove and then complain when there isn't one, doesn't it? The hot plate provided works just the same as built-in burners and the toaster oven can be used for baking and the bbq also has a burner so most people are able to prepare a vast variety of meals without problems. I wish that if you didn't understand how to operate these cooking tools, that you would have asked for help. Space is such an interesting thing- there were 5 women not too long ago who loved staying in the red cottage together and described it as "spacious" but the two of you felt cramped (of course these women were German, Brazilian, Russian, Dutch, and Japanese whereas you are from the mainland). I hope that the hairdryer you demanded worked out well for you and that you have better luck finding adequate lodging in the future… I would recommend not looking at spaces under $200 a night to be sure you are most comfortable (at least in Hawaii). Having a clear idea what it is you want is the best way to finding it.
