“Not as pictured and not worth the money”
Reviewed 24 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We were very disappointed when we first saw this property because it was not as pictured on trip advisor. It claimed there was a private entrance and bath, and a kitchenette. I was told by the owner it was close enough to stores, restaurants and the beach to walk everywhere.
It is one block from the beach but it is a long walk to 'town', we're good walkers but I'm glad we rented a car. The room is an upstairs 10x14 bedroom in the house and has a private toilet and sink with a shared shower with the other upstairs bedroom. The furnishings were very old, the pillows were tired and flat, the closets had electronics and boxes stored in them. The bed did not have a footboard and the side rails stuck out from the mattress creating an excruciating hazard to unsuspecting shins. The headboard was a large L shaped desk which wrapped 3/4 around one side of the mattress, rendering it useless as a desk, since the mattress was pushed up against it. A desk chair sat lonely in a corner unable to fulfill it's destiny. The carpet was very old and stained, there is good light and ventilation from the windows, however the view out the windows is facing away from the ocean and is of the neighboring lots and houses. The room projected a very cramped feeling. Definitely not a room you want to hang out in at all.The "kitchenette" had a small microwave, coffee maker and dorm size fridge on the porch. When we asked for cups after a day because there weren't any in the "kitchenette", only then were we told that we had access to certain signed areas of the kitchen.
It was originally listed at $80/nite, then it became $130/nite because there were 2 of us, and then a $50/nite "cleaning fee" was added on by Trip Advisor making it $170/nite. I agreed to this originally because it appeared to be a nice place a block from the ocean. We were there for a wedding and had friends over who said: "you've been scammed". It's worth about 50-60 dollars a night, not $170.The owner says she doesn't get the $50 daily cleaning fee and I asked Trip Advisor what the fee was for and they were unable to provide an answer. Not sure what the cleaning fee was used for.
We also had the displeasure of having to listen to the owner yell at and berate her 'hired help'. Pete and Seth were very helpful and were able to answer all our questions about the animals and nearby snorkeling sites.
We were supposed to stay 4 nights but were so dismayed and disappointed we started looking for another place quickly, and it took 2 days to find something which was the same price. The owner has created a no-refund policy and refused to refund the 2 days we didn't stay. Trip Advisor was not very helpful because I apparently didn't read the fine print on their site, which I still haven't located, and didn't call them within 24 hours. I did call them within 24 hours of when we were scheduled to check out, but they said that was too late. I have used Trip Advisor for many years but it is doubtful if I will use them again.

These people were the most complaining people on EARTH TERRIBLE, RUDE.....complained, are you ready, about the pillows not being fluffy enough. They were brand new, I swear, brand freaken new. They had 6 freaken pillows, omg NEVER EVER HAS SOMEONE SAID THIS ONE. They complained about walking. We live at beach, we all walk. We have gated lighted parking, which is hard to get. We ARE NOT NOT NOT 1 BLOCK FROM BEACH!! We are literally 1 house yes 1 house in from ocean front...300 ft.....WE are 3 blocks to grocery stores, 1/8 th of a mile to walk downtown Lahaina. NO ONE DRIVES THERE FROM HERE, NOT ONE PERSON . They tell us In their 3rd day at 5 pm they want to leave. They moved further away from downtown, in a filthy low budget hostel like place. Yes we do charge 50 cleaning 25.00 for additional people after 1 We are exceptionally clean, staffed, and always available for every need....every single thing these people have expressed is an out an out UNBELIEVABLE LIE, OMG. Shame on them. We say EXACTLY what is in kitchenette small fridge,microwave, toaster oven, coffee machine, even popcorn maker..cups and condiments are right there. They had nothing nice to say. We were shocked at their attitude when they were here, complained as soon as arrived that they didn't get a good enough animal tour. Honestly we've been in business for 2 yrs. You can check us out throughout the Web on our exceptional reviews. These people even comained that they had to be verified who they are. Watch out renting to these 2. Shameful.

We enjoyed our stay. Our three year old child is still talking about the turles that loved to be pet and the beautiful birds along with the fish who wiggled his tail when you came near. It was the greatest location just a minute walk to the best beach with calm water and shade along the shore. We loved the location and the clean room supplied with plenty of towels. Thank you everyone there for helping to make this a memorable vacation!

Location, animals, cleanliness was amazing....for the amount of animals the place was prestine. No smell, not 1 bug. Not even a dust particle. Beach is steps from property. Downtown less than 10 minute walk. Staff, host and other guests made us feel we were visiting friends. Check it out, you'll be so glad you dud. Aloha

“Very diappointing - especially the reaction to flea in the accomodation”
Reviewed 20 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

people found this review helpful

Unfortunately my stay was shortened by flea in my room and I stayed only 10 out of 17 nights. Two other guests had moved out 2 days earlier because of the same problem as I found out later but the owner did not say a word to me. And most importantly I was not refunded. Not even for the 7 nights I did not stay. The owner sprayed and I hope that no other guests will face the same problem because I ended up spending my last week on Maui in the self-service laundry which was not great. The overall cleanliness was also very poor. When I turned the bath mat around it clearly had been used already on the other side for example. The only good thing about the accommodation was that the beach is right around the corner.

On our description we explain fully about out door showering if not you could bring sandfleas on our property.This is the tropics! 2 things happened during Rachel''s stay, NEVER ONCE did she shower off from beach, even after showing her, #2 guest picking up a cat and thought I'd "need" another. Ok, this brought in 1 day of a 1 sand flea. OMG DID I SAY 1? We took immediate measures, steamed carpet, and bombed rooms. PRESTO, nothing. In fact we have sand flea lights, and traps are bare. Place is prestine.No bomb oders, nothing. We asked Rachel if we can check out her room, but instead she used an entire bottle of spray. Rachel was totally out of line. She went to a HOTEL!that is what she would rather of stayed in first place. AND TO SAY OUR PLACE ISN'T CLEAN??? EVERY SITE EVERYWHERE ALWAYS TALKS ABOUT OUR CLEANLINESS. She is by far a very deceptive young lady. My future and past reviews will show this. She wanted 1 week refuge 1 week hotel. Paid for entire visit then wanted to split between me and hotel. It doesn't work that way. Your loss Rachel.
