Rugs were filthy, curtains rotted due to age, old food left in Fridge, open up couch had crumbs, etc inside mattress, screens had holes. Bedding dirty and smelly. Absolute rip off. Total cost $3,200.00 got $700.00 refunded and there was nothing I could do about It. Went to Attorney General's office, police department and no one could help. Would not... More

We have stayed in several of his cottages over the years and for extended periods 1 week to 3 months. He is very helpful, cottages are great and convientiantly located, I have recommend his cottages to several friends. I've never heard a complaint from anyone I recommended these cottages to, but I have heard lots of good stories of a... More

We had to cancel, the place was to dirty, filthy. I don't think they know what cleaning a room means, and they don't care!

WARNING !!! The house was not as advertised. The furnishings were trashy, the place was not clean, the pictures on the website were misleading. The owner, Chris Webster, was a real jerk. When we refused to stay there, he would not refund the rent we had paid him. When we said we were going to call the authorities, he beat... More

We were very comfortable staying with Chris at Classic. We stayed in the Hana House which was an older home with simple beddings and creature comforts. If you are expecting 2009 decor and pillow top beds stay at condo with the other tourists. If you enjoy being with the ones your traveling with and want to feel more like a... More

When we arrived at the Poipu house, we arrived to find our room with someone else's name on the door. After phoning the host, we found out it was double booked. By the way, the Queen Suite we ordered was absolutely filthy and filled with worn out Salvation Army type furniture. The towels were smelly and the bedsheets were mismatched... More

I stayed in the Poipu guest house, and our room (the Master suite) was wonderful. The suite was huge - with private bath, lanai, kitchen, huge bedroom, breakfast nook. The price was amazing for all this just blocks from the beach. You couldn't even get a dumpy hotel room for this price! My mother stayed in the "queen suite" which... More

We loved our stay at Classic Cottages - clean, comfortable and within our budget. Kitchen was well appointed - making beach 'n' travel lunches worked great. Loved the sounds of birds, breezes through the tees. Convenient short drive to Koloa, Poipu Beach, Hanapepe and Waimea. Our host Chris took care of our every request and gave us great tips for...

The cottages were charming--snuggled in the trees with lots of birds and plants. Each cottage had cooking facilities (a plus for trying to manage health and food issues) and were geared to families. We stayed six nights. Everything was clean and comfortable and unbelievably affordable (a great find for anyone on a serious budget). Located approx 8 miles from Poipu,... More

Our stay was a dream! Equipped with full kitchen, large master bedroom, hot tub, dining room, living room, and a spacious balcony where you can just enjoy the beautiful scenery. Location was right in the middle of three beaches where my husband and I would take our walks to the beach to see the sunset every evening. The owner is... More
