This was a wonderful and comfortable stay. It had everything we needed and the location was fabulous for restaurants. You won't get the same service as resort guest but that is to be expected with discounted price.
Jeremy's directions to the condo were good; picked up my room key with no problem. Condo was as described with some unexpected pluses: hairdryer, small coolers, ice bars, sand toys, straw beach mats, beach chairs, and boogie boards. Condo is very centrally located with easy access to hiking and beaches.
Kitchen is well equipped with basic tools for cooking. Not much in the way of food storage containers, but that was fine by me. Resort wifi is not super dependable and not good for streaming movies. Download everything before your trip. Resort's garbage and recycling facility is kept locked "after hours" which I found odd since that is when I was actually home.
We did have a bit of a bug problem. We had two dead cockroaches, a live one, and some transient ants. I'm assuming the former was due to a previous guest leaving lanai doors open.
In all it was a very solid place to say and worth the value!
Pros: Good price relative to options. Condo was clean, AC was strong, location is central, pool and beach access are convenient, owner was responsive.
Cons: Ground-floor means we kept the blinds closed, which got claustrophobic. There's no internet in room, and Verizon/TMobile didn't have good service. The bed is VERY soft and a bit creaky. Parking lot fills by 6pm, so you have to park a 5 minute walk away.
We had a great time! It was easy to check in, seemed clean, stocked with enough stuff to cook, and was steps from the ocean! The pool and hot tub we great too! Not that it's a big deal but there is no wifi and the laundromat was only for people staying in the hotel.
The apartment is clean and well equipped. The bed was very comfortable. It's located in a quiet neighborhood close to the beach. Due to recent hurricanes there was no trade winds the first few days so we really suffered without air conditioning. Jeremy brought us some cotton sheets to replace the polyester ones and some folding beach chairs which was very thoughtful. The house has additional rentals or is divided in 3 separate units. The tenants were very friendly and helpful. Parking is very tight. We would just need to unload before pulling all the way into driveway. Overall this was a good experience and accurately described.
Nice size space and great location with a can't-beat-it price. Washer/dryer, full kitchen, and wifi all worked great. I also appreciated the many unlisted amenities: beach chairs, cooler, bug spray, french press for coffee, 4 fans. Jeremy responds very quickly to questions and requests for service, faster than a lot of hotel front desks. I highly recommend Jeremy as a host and would rent from him again. One caveat: the room got really hot during our visit, even at night with all the fans going. If you're sensitive to heat, I recommend looking for lodgings with A/C. I rated this space 5 stars despite the heat because this place is clearly listed without A/C, and it seems unfair to penalize the host for the weather.
The Islander was perfectly located with amazing views and ambiance. The room was (email hidden)ean, comfortable, and filled with everything we might need. We were disappointed that we were not able to access WiFi in the room (even though the owner said there was a router, there wasn't) and had to go to the lobby to get reception. The overall experience was pleasant but (and it is a big but), we would have appreciated knowing ahead of time that we would be staying at a resort where we were not classified as one of the guests and thus were NOT able to partake in all of their services. I was disappointed to not get the free coffee/tea and newspaper that the other guests got, but what was really frustrating was not being able to use the washer and dryer located right across from the room, especially when the airbnb description includes them as amenities. As long as you know this ahead of time and are okay with it, I would highly recommend this space. It is within walking distance of a grocery store, ice cream, souvenir shops, a lounge, and a great fish market where you can eat lunch or dinner. There is even a good breakfast place, Eggbert's, that you can walk to. We enjoyed eating breakfast there twice in 3 days.
The small studio was a pleasant experience. We enjoyed having a washer and dryer onsite. Very convenient to wash our clothes from swimming and hiking. The kitchen is stocked with cookware for when we want to cook.
Kauai is hot in August. We were very hot in the studio. There is no AC. There's a fan but doesn't relieve the heat. We found it difficult to sleep due to the overwhelming heat.
Upon arrival, we didn't get any communication from the owner. I had to go back to my original email to get the address. Maybe this is how communication is processed on the island but I would recommend a welcome letter for future vistors.
Awesome location -- literally two blocks from beautiful Po'ipu Beach. The place was perfect for us -- no separate bedroom but it was not needed. Although it got pretty hot, the ceiling fans, the two large fans and the fan in the bathroom helped us manage the heat. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes and utensils, pots and pans and other cooking necessities. That and the outside grill and washer and dryer were all huge pluses.
A couple with a baby lived in the house behind this unit, they kept to themselves (as we did) but were very nice and let us know that we could put our garbage in their bins on the morning of collection.
I accidentally broke a pitcher that was in the cabinet; bought a replacement and emailed Jeremy about it but as of today (about a week since we checked out) haven't heard back from him. Which I hope means he is not too upset about it!
This place was exactly as pictured and described. It was beautiful and perfect for what we needed. It was a super smooth check-in process too. We will definitely recommend this place to our friends and family.
